"Like a flash the boy dashed off
under cover of a ditch on the left.
Only a few of us had seen it, but Maj.
Jeanne knew his corporal of 18, and
knew he was up to something grand.
Watching him, he shouted, 'Go for
them! Get at those square-heads
with your bullets. Fire!'
i "In the meantime Lupin had man
aged to get to the left of the German
battery, and at 300 metres distance
he sheltered behind a wall.
"He took aim at the battery in en
filade, and under the fire of his Mau
ser brought down in quick succes
sion the chief officer, the under of
ficers, and the artillerymen.
"This time real confusion took
place at the German battery, which
was nearly silenced, the Germans,
thinking that a whole platoon was
now attacking them from behind the
wall, directed their last piece of ar

HERE'S FOOD ECONOMY FOR
Letter from an Englishman to a
Sir The war will soon cause dis
tress to many. Let those who can
save the peelings of potatoes, carrots,
apples, etc., and the outside layers of
onions, and leaves of cabbage, let
tuce, etc., pea-pods, marrow-seeds,
etc.; wash these well; let them sim
mer in water, and, after straining,
add milled breadcrumbs and crusts,
milled cheese, and some soaked and
cooked peas or beans or lentils, and
send to some central place for dis
tribution. It would mean a little individual
trouble, but would cost hardly any
thing, and would help a good deal.
I wish also that a few leaflets could
be scattered broadcast among the
people, advising them to masticate
foods more thoroughly (and thus les
sen the bulk needed), and practice
gentle but deep and full breathing
and keep the blood clean by sipping
hot or cold water first thing in the
morning and last thing at night. Our
people will need not only all the
cheap food, but also the cheap health,
that can be had. Eustace Miles.
