count of poor Billy Tompkins. He had
an unfortunate marital experience."
We hadn't neard of it and begged

In t):e lobby of a Hotel tney were
speaking about speed fiends, the Philadelphia
Telegraph says, and Congressman
Wyatt Aiken of South Carolina,
recalled a story about Jones.
One afternoon Jones was rambling
along the boulevard when he ran
across friend Smith. Handshake and
then some talk, which included the
war, the weather and automobiles.
"By the way," said friend Smith,
recollectively, "I hear that you have
been buying a machine."
"Yes." Droudlv admitted Jones. "1

friend Smith. "How fast can the machine

"Smnk?,nf Battle" in Modern TTar
One of the marked features of the
European conflict that distinguishes it
from the wars of the past is t?e absence
of smoke on the firing lines. Owing
to the use of smokeless powder,
no smoke is made when a rifle is discharged,
while the heaviest artillery
throws off nothing more than a fcbin
mist that is invisible a hundred yards
away and disappears within a few
seconds after the gun is fired. Only
when shrapnel or a shell explodes in
the enemy's lines is there anything
visible in the way of smoke, the whole
purpose being to conceal the position
of the guns throwing the projectiles
while making the points where the
projectiles explode clearly visible.
The expression, "the smoke of battle,"
so faithfully descriptive of the wars
of the past, has little meaning when
applied to a modern war.?From the

O-indy Relieves Fatigue.
The Westminister Gazette.
Tie value of candy :s recognized by
military authorities, rne Jtsnusn suiciers
in France are reported' as consuming
"prodigious quantities of
sweets." A captain at the front with
the British army reports that tine canteen
has "five times the demand for
sweets that was expected, and onegftl'i
the demand for beer." The Australians
encamped in Egypt have eaten
all the chocolate to be had in Cairo."
Scientists contend that sugar has
mnr.h food value and is a good -substi
tute for alcohol. Chocolate, for ex-1
ample, is harmlessly stimulating. Soldiers
have discovered what scientists
knew before, that sugar will relieve
fatigue quickly and give a 'sense of
strength that is real without the subsequent
depression experienced by
t). ose who use spirits. Sugars and
candies are found to be useful not only
fr> the Dhvsically tired, but to those
who suffer mental exhaustion.

YOUR "FI N>Y ROSE"
Why It Harts So When You Hit It
Wben. you bump your nose or chiD
you bump ti e flesh and bone and not

or pain just where the blow

it's only when you strike that little
hollow between the big central bone
of the elbow and tf:e little inside bone
that the tickling, tingling sensation is
felt. In tie little hollow you strike
one of the large trunk nerves that j
spring between the vertebra at the
base of t)*e neck and runs through the
arm to the wrist. In the hollow of the
elbow the nerve lies over a bone.
Whtn you strike that spot you feel a
tingling sensation which isn't exactly
funny, but because it tickles the bone
is called tf: e "funny bone."

Seeing Bullets Fly.
The most amazing sight is our experience
was tJ:e United States servicc
bullet with its speed of 2,700 feet per "
second. Here we saw the bullet itself,
not flying particles. The sun was low
over the eastern hills. Its rays came ^
through a break In the ridge bordering
A. - -C A
the range, lignting up mosi 01 mr
course of the bullet up to t'-e target ^
200 yards away, but leaving the target .
and the firing point in deep shadow. t
The first bullet was seen by some one, J
and not a man present missed the
strange sight later on. The appearance
was a very brilliant silvery flash,
as vivid and quick as a flash of lightning.
But two things are necessary to see
bullets fly, a dark background, and tine
sun at right angles to its course. Bigr
gun projectiles are of course nearly *
always visible, and it is not hard to 1
see a charge of shot in flight if one *
knows what to look for and where to
stand.?Edward C. .'Crossman, in the 1
