In the great retreat. They crept

where we stayed all night. Next morn

dock, only two fields away from the
Germans, in the middle of their lines.
So we lay low all day.
"Then eight Frenchmen crawled up
to us. We managed to keep out of
sight until most of the Germans had
gone on. We had most of the time in
orchards, and lived on pears foz ten
days. We were then a party of

As we were desperate for want of
food we decided to make for a vil

met any Germans. Just before we
left the orchards twelve Germans
caught two of our French comrades
and bayoneted them without giving
them any chance to surrender itf they
had wanted to.
"We got to a village, making our
way along the railway line and
through the forest. Here we all
lodged in a barn, and a woman, the
best soul we ever met, brought us
milk three times a day.
"The Germans, who were searching
for us, were in a horseshoe shape

on us. Private Jamieson, a scout, and

TAKES WAR- LIHTLY
Russia Shows Little Evidence of
Dstermination to Win and Break Ger
man Militarism Is the Spirit of the
Czar's People-No End to
By SLOAN GORDON.
Correspondent of the Chicago News.
Petrograd, Russia.-How the great
war has drained the human reservoirs
of Prance-how the boulevards of
Paris are manless wastes; how the call
to arms has taken male Germans from
the farms and the villages and the
cities; how rare are men of fightin
age upon the streets of Budapest and
Vienna, and how, even in London,
there is noted a marked falling off
in the number of visible male being-
all these evidences of the effects of
international blood letting have been
set forth in countless columns in the
newspapers at America for months.
That the stories are true of those
German and Austrian and French and
even British centers there can be no
reasonable ground for doubt-the nn
merous authorities attest their accu
racy. But it may be set down that
this is not true of Petrograd. To all
outward appearances in this war cap
Ital there is no war. There are evi
ddeces here and there of great mlli
tary activity. There are daily drills
upon the public squares and there are
Red Crss signs in great profusion.
But of men, or, rather, the absence of
men-there is no such thing.
Great, mysterious, brooding Russia
-the unfathomable Russia-goes
about her daily ways with a noncha
lance that is barMing to the western
mind, Her streets are crowded-the
streets of setrograd and of Moscow
and even of Warsaw, where the fight
ing lines are but a few miles distant.
Tens of thousands, literal hordes of
men of all ages Jostle and crowd along
the famous Nevsky Prospekt from

of what is really underneath the sur
face-a Russian individual character
istic. Your Russian is a fatalist in
great crises. When it comes to
something really big he settles down
to an imperturbable calm, shrugs his
shoulders, and takes his medicine."
That the general attitude of Russia
toward the war has changed sincd'hos
tilities began is testified to by those
who have observed.
"In the beginning of the war," samid
one of these observers, a Russian mer
ejant with large interests in Petro
grad and Warsaw, "we felt that we
were fighting only to repulse an en
emy-to prevent invasion of our ter
ritory. There was little show of bit
terness against the Germans. But it
is different now. This war has done
more to make Russians think and to
draw them together than anything
that. has ever happened in-the histor
of the country. Today there is a fixed
determination to fight it out to a
finish and to end the probability of fu
ture conflict by destroying Prussian
militarism. That may sound strange
to those who have looked so long upon
Russia as a military nation, bit it
is nevertheless true. A. new feeling
of patriotism has been born."
"And do you know," he ad4ed, much
as though it were a matter of course,
"that it is impossible for Russia to
lose-'for the allies to lose this war?
Russian resources of men and money
are too vast. Why, there are a mil
lion young men arriving at military
age every year.. Russia could lose a
million every 12 months, which is in
conceivable, and still keep her armies
in the field in undiminished number.
Russia can feed her armies, and never
feel it All the blockades in the world
cannot affect us! We raise our own
food, and can and will make our own
supplies of every sort, if necessary.
We have the money, we have the
men, and, by heaven, we have the

Headwear Made of Cotton Fabric
Whether to be worm to gather vbge
tables or flowers from the garden or
to go a-marketing in tSe morning 'or
for the drive about the country every
woman wants becoming headwear.
And it seems she is destined to be
gratified, for the garden hats and sun
bonnets of today are as carefully
planned as the dress hats with which
fair women fortify themselves to meet
the critical eyes of their peers.
Cretonnes, ginghams, chambrays, and
new fancy cotton weaves have been
brought into unfamiliar service and
used in new ways to evolve the home
made headwear that is illustrated In
the picture given here. Even the
plain little sunbonnet manages to be
beeomlng and prettily frivolous, while
it fulfills its mission of shading the
eyes and protecting the neck.
Some of the new-cotton fabrics, such
as cotton gabardile or cotton poplin,
are of just the right weight and body
for these pretty bonnets. Plain white
tape or binding braid makes an at
