Mustache Maude

Mustache Maude
> Labi-Barba Maude

Clara Belle Rose was born in 1873 near the town of Tracy, Minnesota.
> Klara Belle Rose gene nati anua 1873 proxi viki Tracy stato Minesota.

When she was only 16, she ran away from home.
> Kron fe habe simpli deka-sixa anua, fe pa lasi auto eko-lo.

She lived with her sister Dora in Minneapolis and did odd jobs like sewing.
> Fe pa es ko sorori Dora loka civita Mineapolis, e akti plu mikro gina ergo, homo sue.

In 1895 she went to Aberdeen, South Dakota to work for her brother, who had a hotel there.
> Anua 1895, fe ki a civita Aberdeen stato Austra Dakota, tende du ergo sub fratri, qi habe la un hoteli.

She drove a taxi-carriage and also worked in the hospital.
> Fe akti u taxi-vagona, e plus akti plu ergo loka pato-do.

When she was 23 years old, she had enough money to start her own business.
> Kron fe habe bi-deka-tri anua, fe habe sufice valuta de establi auto negoti-lo.

She went to the town of Winona, North Dakota.
> Fe ki a mikro civita Winona stato Boreo Dakota.

Winona was a bad town.
> Winona pa es u kako civita.

It was across the Missouri River from Fort Yates.
> Id es trans u fluvi Misouri ab u forta Yates.

When the soldiers had free time, they would spend their money in Winona.
> Kron plu soldata habe libe tem, mu lose valuta  loka Winona.

Clara started a saloon/gambling house.
> Klara proto u bibe/divi-do.

She dressed like a cowboy: She wore a big hat and kept a six-shooter on her hip, but she wore short skirts.
> Fe habe epi se plu bovi-ago vesti: Fe habe u mega kefa-ve e tena u sixa-buleta fusili para koxa, anti-co fe habe plu brevi infra-tunika.

Because she had abnormal lip hair, the soldiers called her "Mustache Maude."
> Kausa fe pa habe plu no-norma labi kapila, plu soldata dona fe u nomina "Labi-Barba Maude."

Everyone liked her, because there was no doctor there, and she often helped the sick.
> Pan civi amo fe, kausa la es nuli iatri, e fe freqe dona auxi a plu pato-pe.

When the fort closed, Maude raised cattle.
> Po u forta pa gene lase, Maude sti kresce plu bovi.

Maude never rode side-saddle, but straddled her horse like the other cowboys.
> Maude nuli-kron sedi epi equs per gina "latu" sedi-ru, sed pan-kron sedi, komo plu hetero bovi-an.

She was the only woman in the history of the USA to be convicted of cattle rustling, although she was not punished.
> Fe es u solo gina akorda USA histori, qi gene un etio de klepto u bovi, anti fe ne gene puni.

Maude died in 1932 in the town of Selfridge.
> Maude gene morta anua 1932 viki Selfridge.

It was a very large funeral.
> La es u morta festa ko mega poli festa-pe.
