from Texas, and the captain said:
"You are just the man I want to
see. My mother writes me she
has not eaten any wheat since
April last, and I think you are
overdoing it. She is worried a
bout me and I am afraid this will
make her sick. Why won't you
let up?' I told him not to worry,
that the people of the United
States were not being injured,
that his mother would not stoo
iier sacrifice until the order was
rescinded, even if we t hi her. I
thought I had satisfied his mind.
I then asked him about his
wound, and lie said, ' Have a hole
in my hip; but I am not suffering;
much pain,' and turning to his
nurse said, 'I will soon be around,
won't I ?' and she nodded gravely.
I went on, but his nurse soon
came ulter me and said, 'The cap

I went back, lie said, 'I won't
be satisfied unless you promise
me that as soon as you get back
you will write to my mother and
tell her she can go on eating
wheat.' 1 said, 'Of course I will
do that. You mustn't worry
about your mother. We are doing
nothing in America compared
with what you are doing.'
''The nurse walked along with
me, and I asked her, 'How badly
is he hurt?' She replied- 'I'm
afraid he won't live; his spinal
column is injured.' Another case,
a boy sat with his head propped
up, sipping a cup of tea. He had
but one arm that he could use and
lie was sipping away at his tea.
He looked a little bit sheepish as
he said, 'There is something I
would like to ask yon to do and
I don't think I ought to.' I said,
'What is it?' (He was a private.)

pillow; I can't do it; I am not
