(Continued from pago G)
so closo wo saw overy horror and
every crhno tho Roches has forced on
humanity. Ono doesn't know what
hatred is until he sees former friends
and acquaintances twisted and torn
among tho shell craters. It makes
ono absolutely calloused to tho dead
of tho enemy, and with very sholl
goes a prayer that it not only kills
but tortures. Some of the sights I
saw would have nauseated tho most
calloused executioners of the French
Wrecks and Wreckage
I will never forget tho first village
we occupied. Hero and thoro the
jagged remnants of a wall cast it's
shadow over tho road, but such rem
nants were few and far between.
Wreckage of all kinds littered the
streets, tho growsomo Roche bodies
lay in heaps, with hero and thero a
doughboy. Horses and mules lay in
masses, and equipment of all kinds,
from gun carriages to machine gun
bullets lay scattered In tho utmost
confusion. It was a place of perfect
ion for tho morbidly curious or the
souvenir seeker, but to me the most
awful placo ever created. Wo finally
left it in the advance, but tho whole
country side from there on was Httlo
better. Tho wastage of life and prop
erty In this war, Is something the
wildest dopo flend could never have
imagined. Ambulances run night and
day. Rifles, pistols, bayonets and gas
masks, machine guns, automobiles,
grenades and every other war aid
aro aro collected by salvage corps in
train load lots. Unexploded shells
lay around by tho thousands, a men
ace to generations of peasants to
One's sensations during a battle, aro
simply beyond description. Not fear,
as I had imagined, but a taut tighten
ing of the nerves, that is almost kill
ing in its tenseness. When you hear
some sleek lecturer in uniform get up
and say he craves to return to tho
lines, put him down as a liar. Self-
preservation is an Instinct, the most
deeply seated in our souls of all In
stincts, for wo inherit it through
thousands of generations, from tho
Anthropoid period of our evolution to
tho Mother who bore us. and when
we mako that instinct a secondary
matter for weeks at a time, we know
what real horror is. When any min
ute may bo your last, when tho next
shell may hae your number on it, or
tho sickening choko of gas may grip
your throat and mako you cough your
life away-when mangling may occur
any second, or the horrible burns of
mustard gas may be your portion, you
get so you almost figure tho b'oys un
der the little crosses the fortunate
ones, yet you know you will go on
till you drop, and when you aro order
ed back after you rest, you will go
with a little grumbling perhaps, but
no other thought but obedience (and
willing obedienco) enters your mind.
The silvery tongued loctuurers would
bo correct if they said they longed for
a trench if they were about to parti
cipate in a big drive. I, myself, have
longed for a trench, (trench warfare
seemed heaven), In fact, any kind of
a holo seemed good. When a sholl
screeches over, the best man in the
world "obeys that impulse," viz. flat
tens out, if such a thing is possible.
An Underground City.
The territory wo took from the Hun,
was interesting beyond description.
These descendents of Attila have
turned into a raco of moles. They
were living in dugouts seventy feet
deep and in tunnels miles long. Ono
mountain I explored, was an under
ground city in itself, tho streets being
named, and contained kitchens, hos
pitals, power plants, electric lights
etc. Tho trenches were concrete
floored masterpieces of tho pick and
shovel. There was underground
cover for all tho thousands who held
that line. Ono stood amazed at their
industry and patlenco for tho amount
of work required for this excavation
must have been stupemluous. Tho
officers' quarters wero furnished conv
plote from bathtub, to cow., They
must have moro than hated to give it
all up. Wo blaBted them out how
over, and our relief still has them on
them on tho run. By tho tlmo this
reaches you, wo will bo back in tho
lines again, so pleaso writo often so
thero will bo a lot of letters waiting
when I conio out again.
Your devoted Rurd."
A later letter from him says: "I

few days (after' tho armistice), than
at any timo Blnco I havo been in
