1,200 KANSAS WOMEN.
Many Widows, and Some Taught

Kansas has 1,200 women who are the
active managers of farms, and there is
scarcely one who has not made a suc
cess of her work. These women are

Probably the best known woman
farmer in Kansas is Miss Mary Best
of Barber county. Every bushel of
her wheat is sold to millers and state

Splendid Heroism of Woman
Banished to Siberia.
HAPPY IN HER GOOD DEEDS.
Helping and Cheering Fellow Unfortu
nates In Russian Penal Settlement
Aids Mme. Catherine Broshkovskaya
to Bear Her Cross Aged Martyr's
Recent Letters to Friends In America.
Tho recent attempted escapo of Mme.
Catherine Broshkovskaya, tho "mother
of the Russian revolution," as sho is
called, from exile in dreaded Siberia,
has again attracted world wide atten
tion to this brave woman, now near
Ing her seventieth j'ear, who is un
dergoing her second or "perpetual"
term. She was sentenced to exile in
March, 1010, after a trial, whose pro
ceedings wore followed with intense
interest. The charge against her
was conspiracy in conjunction with
Nicolas Tchaikovsky, the "father of
the revolution," who had been active
for reform since 1870. The man was
acquitted on evidence brought from
the United States.
Becnuse she would not plead for tho
Russlari emperor's clemency Mme.
Broshkovskaya has been Incarcerat
ed at KIrensk, a penal settlement 420
miles northeast of Irkutsk.
At the time of her recent attempt
to gain her freedom she went to din
ner under police escort at tho lodging
of a fellow exile, Vladlmlroff, and re
mained there till evening. Then n
companion, Andreeff, dressed In Mme.
Breshkovskaya's clothing, emerged
from the house supported by Vladlml
roff, and, pretending to bo a sick wo
man. Accompanied by the police es
cort the accomplice hobbled to tho
lodging of Mme. Broshkovskaya nnd
crawled Into her bed, where he re
mained. Constabulary Intercepted a convey
ance speeding on tho way to Yakutsk,
on tho river Lena, and, recognized
among Its occupants Mme. BreshUov
skaya, dressed as a man. She had In
her possession a counterfeit passport
and a sum of money.
Lectured In United States.
It was In 18S3 that Mine Broshkov
skaya was first sent to Siberia. Re
leased after twenty-one years, she
came to America and formed many
close friendships with other leading
workers in the fight against the cznr.
Sho toured tho'principnl cities, lectur
ing on the cnuso of freedom in her na
tive land. She picked up something of
tho English language, but It was not
until her return to exile that sho mas
tered Its intricacies sufficiently to use
It in correspondence.
ner friends in this country have re
ceived many letters from her. Through
them shone the old time spirit of fight
and fortitude which twenty-one years
in exile had not dimmed when she
enmo to this country in 1004.
In one of theso letters sho tells of
changed conditions In tho opening of
tho exile's mail slnco the days of her
first banishment, but ndds that the
habit of persecution nnd espionage is
so old that the guards aro never tired
of indulging in it,
"During tho festivities of Christmas,"
sho continues, "when here many young
persons disguise themselves and go
through tho town with their masks,
my keepers are afraid I will escapo in
that, manner, and they run about llko
mad men, searching and looking after
every one. Intruding themselves into
every house suspected to bo the place

"Every path I raako is surveyed by
a gloomy figure shrouded In black furs
from head to foot nnd standing Im
movable near the house I visit.
"Without permission I cannot place
my foot on tho frozen river, for It
would bo regarded ns an attempt to
escapo. All the night they nro look
ing into tho windows of my cabin."
Mothers a Thousand Exiles. ,
In another letter to n friend in this
country she says: "I did not receive

TEN BUSHELS INCREASE.
What Ten Bushels to the Acre In
crease Would Do for the State
National Crop Improvement Service.
An increase of ten bushels of corn
to the acre upon the 6,628,909 acres
planted in the state of Illinois in 1911,
at 40 cents per bushel, would have
produced an increase of wealth to the
state of $26,515,636.
An increase of ten bushels of wheat
to the acre upon 1,336,267 acres seed
ed in the state of Illinois in 1911,
would have produced an increase of
wealth to the state of $10,422,882.60.
An increase of ten bushels of oats
to the acre upon the 2,766,087 acres
seeded in the state of Illinois in 1911
would have produced an increase of
wealth to the state of $9,681,304.50.
An increase of ten bushels of rye to
the acre upon the 49,356 acres seeded
in the state of Illinois in 1911, would
have produced an increase of wealth
to the state of $360,298.80.
An increase of ten bushels of barley
to the acre upon the 33,274 acres
seeded in the state of Illinois in 1911
would have produced an increase of
wealth to the state of $286,192.
The' total wealth of the state from
the additional increase of ten bushels
to the acre of corn, wheat, oats, rye
and barley upon the acreage planted
in 1911 would have amounted to the
