used Black-Draft ht as a

it is the best medicine for
the liver made." Try it.

LETTER BY MAJOR R. DENIG
His Battalion Took Part in Great Al
Washington, Oct. 27.-To advance
seven miles against a hurricane of
German fire, machine gun bullets and
big shells is not all glory and exhila
ration even for a United States ma
rine. This is disclosed in a series of
vivid pen pictures of the tremendous
fighting in which those American
boys participated in on the Marne
salie:.t, written by Major Robert L.
Denig, of the marines, to his wife in
Major Denig and his battalion took
part in the great Allied counter attack
on the Marne salient, July 18, that
started the Hun backward toward
Germany and began the disintegration
of the German western front. In4jat

with glory, but at a terrific cost in
killed and wounded. The major's let

To Picture a Fight
'To picture a fight," he writes,
"mix a'lot of hunkry, dirty, tired and
bloody men with dust, noise and
smoke. - Forget the clean swords,
prancing horses and flapping flags.
At night, a gas-filled woods, falling
trees. and bright, blinding flashds
you can't see yout' neighbor-that is
war. In the rear it is all confusion.
The general told me, 'Hurry to such
a place, all goes well, we are advanc
ing!" His staff miles away, all clean
-one was shaving, another eating hot
cakes-we had not had a hot bite for
two days. As I reached my jumping
off place wounded men, killed men,
horses blown to bits-the contrast."
After describing the beginning of
the advance of the marines to the
fighting I ne, Major Derig continues:
"We were finally, after twelve
hours' ride dumped in a Big field and
after a few hours rest, started our
march. It was hot as hades and we
had had nothing to eat since the day
before. We at last entered a forest;
troops seemed to converge on it from
all points. Wie marched some six
miles in the forest, a finer one I have
never seen. Deer would scamper
We could have eaten one raw. At 10
that night, without food, we lay down
in a pouring rain to sleep. Troops of
all kinds passed us in the night-a
shadowy stream, over a half million
men. Some French officers told us
that they had never seen such concen
tration since Verdun, if then.
The "Eats" at Last
"The next day, the 18th of July, we
marched ahead through a jam of
troops, trucks, etc., and came at last
to a ration dump, where we fell to
and ate our heads off for the first
time in nearly two days. When we left
there the men had bread stuck ?n
their bayonets. I lugged a ham. All
were loaded down.
"Here I passed one of Wass' lieu
tenants with his hand wounded. He
was pleased as punch and told us the
drive was on, the first we knew of it.
I then passed a few men of Hunt's
company, bringing prisoners to the
rear. They had a colonel and his staff.
They were well dressed, clean and
polished, but mighty glum looking.
'We finally stopped at the far end
of the forest, near a dressing station
where Holcomb (Lieut. Col. Thomas
Holcomb, of Washington,) again took
command. This station had been a
big fine stone farm, but was now a
complete ruin-wounded and dead lay
all about. The lines had gone on
ahead. Had a fine aero battle right
over us. Late in the afternoon we ad
vanced again. Our route lay over an
open field covered with dead.
"We lay down on a hill side for the
night, near some captured German
guns, and until dark I watched the
cavlary-some 4,000 come up and take
