Women Who Supply City of Kiev With
Milk Toil Long Hours and
Wars and revolutions may change
the face of a land and bring untold
woe upon non-combatants, as well as
soldiers, but the customs of a coun country
try country are often more powerful .than the
force of arms, writes Temple Manning
In the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Those
who survive keep on in much the
same way they went before the war,
and do their work as their fathers and
mothers did long before them. The
way the city of Kiev gets its milk is an
instance which proves the point.
For centuries the mothers of the
families which ran the farms about
the city were the milkmaids of Kiev.
Today the farmers wives and their
daughters despite the tumults in and
about that city see that Kiev is not
without its milk.
The women do the heaviest part of
the farm work. They have always
done it. They would be surprised
should they be told that in another
land men do the heavy work of the
farm. And not the least hard work
of the farms in the neighborhood of
Kiev is the caring for the cows, the
milking and the getting of that milk
to market. For in Kiev there are no
milk companies which gather the milk,
transport it and sell it.
At daybreak and often earlier than
the sun, the farm wives of Kiev rise
and hurry into the barnyard. They
care for the cows and do the milking.
But their work is not then done. In
small Jars which hold perhaps two
quarts, the women pour the milk. They
fill as many jars as the milk the cows
have given require. Then they tie
three or four jars together, and at-:
tach them to one end of a pole. To
the other end of. the pole they tie
the rest of the jars. Stooping, they
get one shoulder" under the pole, lift
the milk jars, and off they start to
The distance may be six miles or
even more, and the weight of the milk

of Kiev are used to hard work, and.
to carrying great weights. Uncom Uncomplaining,

and its form is prosaic, but when it
comes to real substance it stands as
