Some of the organizers and leaders
of the socialist revolutionary party are
known to be working from centers out
ride Russia. One group has Its bead
qua ners at Geneva. These are re
cruited from former leaders who have
passed long terms of exfle in Siberia,
but have either escaped or been am
nested and have gathered together
again to continue their propaganda
with relentless persistency.
One of these was Gerscbanen. who
was reported last year to have been
retaken In Russia while disguised in
the country. With two others. Goltz
and Rubinovitch, he published the
Messenger of the Russian revolution

advocated. They represent the fight

movement. Rubinovitch preached an
archy and terrorism publicly in Italy.

DAILY SHORT STORY
AN EPISODE OF CUBAN REVOLT
Previous to the last Cuban revolu
tion, during which the Cubans, with the
help of the Untied States, flung off thei
Spanish yoke. Colonel Manuel Ordas
of the Spanish army married Donna
Ysabel Ctevlgero. who Inherited one of
the finest sugar plantations on the Is
land. They were totli young and des
perately iu lov wltlueach other. When
tle revolution canss Senora Onlax es
jMjused the cause of 'the Cubans, while
her husband, commaziding a regiment
of Spanish troops, was bound to fight
on the side of Spain.
"Go, Manuel. said the yomig wife,
"and do your duty. That you must en
deavor to strengthen the yoke we bear
will not turn my love from you a
"I know.- replied the husband, "that
you will aid the Insurrection with your
means and your personal effort, yet I
shall love you the same.
Colonel Ordaz left ber to Join his reg
iment, and Senora Ordaz organized a
battalion of Cubans, arming and equip
ping theni at her own expense. When
tbey were ready to take the field they
demanded that she should command
them. This she consented to do nomi
nally, with rank of major.
The Spaniards at the outset of the
revolution treated their captives as reb
els and traitors. An officer and ten
men of Senora Onlaz's Kit ta lion, hav
ing been captured, were shot. The se
nora In response to the clamors of her
soldiers declare. 1 that she would shoot
the first Spanish otllcer and ten pri
vates that should full Into ber bands.
One day soon after this, while Senora
Ordaz was sitting in ber tent, she heard
the trend of men marching, and In a
few moments a squad lmltetl without
and a sergeaut rapped on the tent pole.
The major threw aside the flaps, and
lc fore ber stood ten Spanish prisoners
and a man In citizen's dress under
Why did the senora turn white and
gasp for benlh? She knew that these
men were inarched lefore her that she
might give an order for their execution,
but the ten lives were as nothing com
pared with that of the citizen, for un
der his disguise she recognized her hus
band. Colonel Ordaz bad been arrested
trying to pass ns a civilian from one
province to another bearing important
dispatches, which were found on his
lerson. This In all armies is considered
to constitute a spy mid is punishable
The seuora listened to the report of
the sergeant with a heaving bosom,'
hearing not a word. Colonel Ordaz
stood erect, while a glance of recogni
tion passed between husband and wife.
When the sergeant hnl finished, the
major, with ditliculty commanding her
voire, culled him to tier and said:
"These men, as I have promised,
must die. Take them to the guard tent,
and I will issue an order during the
day for their execution. The spy I de
sire to examine myself. I will keep the
paers for transmission to our general.

for you." .
"He is desperate, senora. When ar

The guard was called and the pris
oner led away. That night be was
taken again under guard commanded
by an otltcer to the major's tent. The
major ordered the olllcer to surround
the tent with bis men, but to leave her
to u private interview with the pris
oner, from whom she expected Im

was left In the tent, iitillghted except
by the rays of a full moon. For a time
the tent flaps were thrown back, but
pn-seiitly they were lowered.
The otlicer in command of the guard
was puzzied. 116 did not know what
to do. so be did nothing.
Presently the officer of the guard
(saw a figure wrapped iu the senora's
military cloak emerge hastily from the
teut and run toward bim. Passing, she
cried iu a voice that he considered
rbanged by excitement: "I fear the spy
has cheated the gallowa. I am going
for a surgeon."
The omcer ran to the tent to see
as be sijpose,l-the body of the spy
lylug on the ground, while a strong
smell of chloroform pervaded the tent.
He waited for the senora to bring a

last, when he was about to send a
messenger to rejiort the matter, the
spy opened his eyes.

At least he had escaped. The senora
