The Women's Signet says : ' The state of Besjukovschtschina, in Russia, is probably the only place in the world that is ruled by women. Thia State is made up of seven villages, each presided over by a Mayoress, the whole under the superintendence of a lady named Saschka, who acts as President. There are women magistrates, women preachers, women police— in fact, every capacity ia filled by women. The roads are made by women, and women aell milk and deliver lettera. If you want to bring an action againat your neighbour in this State you go to a woman lawyer, and if there ia anything in your house to be stolen, then a burglar of the weaker sex stealß it. No place of any importance ia filled by a man. This state of affaire has been brought about by an epidemic which occurred in 1861, and during which the men of the State behaved ao badly as to reduce the population to starvation. Since then the women have taken the State iv hand and made it prosperous.'
