YOUNG BLACK JOE, THE FIGHT
ING NEGRO IN FRANCE
(Continued from Page 1.)
We heard of the yellow youth who
beseeched his oilicer to send him with
a "dang'ous message," meaning by
that that he craved to go on a per
ilous mission for the greater glory of
the A. E. V. and imideutully of him
self; and about tho jaunty individual
who pulled the firing wire of a
French grenade and catching the
hissing sound of the fulminator work
ing its way toward the charge ex
claimed: "That's it fry, gosh dern
you, fry!" before ho threw it. And
about ho' a Sergeant on an emer
gency trench-digging job stuck to the
task, standing tupdeep in icy water

haustion ho dropped unconscious and
was like to urown m the muck into

ward, until his siiuad discovered him
up-ended there and dragged him out
and about many other things small
or great, bespeaking fortitude and
courage and fidelity and naive Afric
Likewise into my possession came
copies of two documents, both of
which I should say are typical just
as' each is distinctive of a different
phase of the Negro temperament. One
of them, the first one, was humorous.
Indeed, to my way of thinking, it
was as line an example of uncon
scious humor as this war is likely to
produce. The other was1 well, judge
Jones Was Formal.
Before the regiment moved forward
for its dedication to actual warfare
it was impressed upon the personnel
in the ranks that from now on, more
even than before, a soldier in his
communications with his superior
oilicer must use the formal and pre
cise language of military propriety.
The lesson must have sunk in, be
ause on the thrillsoine occasion
when a certain private found himself
for the first timo in a forward ri He pit
and for tho lirst timo hrard Girinan
rilie bullets whistling past bis ears
he called to him a runner and dis
patched to the secondary lines this
message now quoted exactly as wri'.
len except that the proper names
have been changed:

Tho other tiling was an extract
from a letter written by an IS-year
old private to his old mother in New
York, with no idea in his head when
he wrote it that any eyes oilier than
those of his own people would read
It after it had been censored and
posted. The oilicer to whom it came
lor censoring cojded from it one
paragraph, and this paragraph ran
"Mammy, these French people don't

They treat us so good that the only
time I ever knows I'm colored

this time they sang no plantiva

song. For so we learned
to them the word had come that
