been smuggled Into this city, and they

upon. Readers have it from "the great

WOMAN 'CELLIST HAS '
HWON FAMEMEDALS
Catherine's Journal covers "the period
from .1704 to 17S. It tells much that is
new of her married life, her first lov
ers, and Elizabeth's court 1 Catherine
;was a German, daughter of the Prince
of Anhalt, aad was brought up in a
poor and uncomfortable home. Czarina
Elizabeth chose her at 16 to wed Grand
Duke Peter, heir to Russia's 60 thrones.
She thought that a poor German prin
cess would be modest and economical;
She soon found her mistake.
Catherine was no sooner Grand Duch
ess and Elizabeth's niece than she got
into, debt, AVhat Wjasjworse, she showed
great curiosity tt" all that went on at
i-ourV.aud-n aptitude for the most se
ct et affairs of state. She did not con
Mai her scorn for the grand duke, whose
want of wit made him an unfit com
panion. Catherine says of him:
1 "His great delight was to get drunk
and to make love to my own ladles-in-waiting.
He used .to choose the ugliest
of these, preferring the Princeos Eliia
etlLKoroataoftasj3lftln ejuheia
- tupid Iathe-daytlm he would play
at soldiers, which he kept in special
rooms. He smelt so strong of wine and
; tobacco that his company was Insup
( portable, and I was relieved when the
empress arranged for us to have sep
arate apartments."
Court Set HO Oood Example.
Catherine bad not a strict example at
eourt. Elizabeth had lovers galore. So
varied were her favorites that her wom
en made large fortunes through them.
In her youth she had longed to marry
i Louis XV of France, and she never got
over the disappointment of his refusal,
though h was younger than she. In
her old age she regulated her conduct
by secretly marrying her faithful Cos
sack lover, General Rarumovsky, but she
cast him off for Count Ivan Shouva
loff, her minister, or even a simple serv
ant about the palace. Catherine and
Prlne Dolgoreukoff both affirm in their
Journals that General Tclioulkoff never
left her-for a momeht, occupying her
apartments day and night Then, fear
ing he would reveal secrets, she had him
secretly poisoned.
