328 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE From stereograph copyright by Underwood & Underwood, N. Y . Country Women Tramping into Krief, Russia, with the Morning Supply of Milk An enormous weight is carried uncomplainingly with the help of the pall over the shoulders to which the milk-jars are attached. These women do the heaviest part of the farm work, milking at daybreak or earlier, and often walking five or six miles to deliver their wares. Very few of them can read or write, and they are helpless under the domination of the priests and village head-men.
