TO TRADE BODIES
Ruaaian Soldiers Cover Oiitanos In
M I'etei-sliurg. - The tlilee officers
and sixty-four noncommissioned olll
cers nnd men of the Ismitllovsky
Guards regiment, who have rent-lied
Tsiirskoe Selo from Archangel on skis
have accomplished a remarkably fine
pi'iionininee. having covered the dis
tance of more tlinn !20 miles In twen
ty three days.
Most of the country traversed was
hilly and thickly wooded. The wind
had cleared nwny most of the snow
over n considerable stretch and Inter
mittent thaws Impelled the progress ot
the party. On two occasions pucks of
wolves hovered nround the skiers.
In some of the remoter district the
appearance of the skiers caused much
excitement among the peasants, some
of whom took them for n band of es
caped convicts. Others believed that
that were the advance gunrd of a for
eign army Invading Russia, and In
several villages the children rnn away
ami hid themselves In tlie woods
The greatest difficulty experienced by
the party was In the transport of pro
visions nnd reserve skis. These were
carried on horseback, but numerous re
lays of horses had to be requisitioned.
The equipment of the men weighed
about twenty pounds.
