Macedonian Woman Fighter

Katrina Arnautova, young Macedonian woman, who has taken an Active part in much of the recent fighting, is about twenty-six years of age, of middle beight, well set up, and strong-looking. She was wearing a black- fur cap, a gray tunic of military cut and metal buttons, a leather belt, grey trousers, and leggings of a dull, violet-colоrеd wool.

She had no difficulty in keeping up with the men on their long marches. "On the contrary" she said,''being lighter, I can always walk or run as fast аs they can, or even faster." She has shot five Turks with her own rifle, but cannot tell how many, she has killed in regular battle."

"I am too old to think of such foolish things, as love, but when Macedonia is free prerhaps I may settle down and marry; for the present I have no thoughts oa that subject. I have been wounded only once, by a stone broken by a bullet."—London Mail.
