I've just come back from the war.
(Wait a minute until I take off my hat
and coat and I'll tell you about it.
I've hau them on ever since I started.
It's ono thing to read about the war
it's quite another to be a spectator.
Sitting In your own-home with a pa
per in your hand- and a hundred and
.me comfy things about you to remind
you aa you read how far away you are
from the horrors of Eurone, is a dif
ferent senaation entirely, believe mu,
from being right where things are
happening- where with' your own
eyes you witness destruction and sor
row ; hear the shouts of the victor
ious and the moana of the defeated
and dying. O, just let me tell pou
When I first saw the beautiful city
of Antwerp I exclaimed at Its homey
ness, its compactness- its general ap
pearance of well being. Through tte
well kept streets a thrifty and. ap
parently prosperous people moved.
Pleasant faced women, laughing child
ren, and well built men. Even the hor
ses looked comfortable. All bore wit
ness bf constant and intelligent .care.
A str.ii through the country showed
rich * ._s just ready'for the harvest
_uu over all smiled a Complacent sun
by day and a tender moon by night
I said to the one who was with me,

I could it mean? This sudden awful fl
fl shadow that had fallen over the hap- I
fl py country! In one minute I knew.
The Germans'were coming!
H It Was war!
H There came quickly the time of.fev- I
IJjertsh preparation. Wives and mothere I
Bl bravely putting their own fear and I
H sorrow aside, worked Indomitably I

H the time of parting.
? "Goodybye, darling, darling!" I

Heyes, and lips,, looking Into the dear
HI face for what ho. felt might be the

HT eyes, refused to weep until he should
IU have gone. Through what was to come
HI he should remember her with a smile
Hon. her face. It would make life or

HJ And so he marched away. So on that
HJ day marched away thousands of oth

HJ nothing other than brave, carrying in
HJ their hearts the thoughts of those
Hj breve women. they let behind them.
? I sobbed a little- then stifled thc

I And then a little later- Antwerp
in flames! The beautiful city of homes
H turned into a menacing, fiery furnace,
? from out the bowels of ?Mch rushed
IJtho families of the meu who had gone
to fight for her. Her led together like
cattle- the brave women, the little

I saw ? crippled girl, her face

"O," I exclaimed, and involuntar

had' changed. This little child and
probably hundreds of other little help
less, homeless little ones had been
left behind, and In the open country
shellB were bursting all about me,
devastating the rich fields, clouding
tho sunshine, and putting out the lives
fl of men.
I On, on, through: the countryside,
where bullets Were flying Instead of
hirds. I saw a farm house where some
fl Belgians were under cover fired- hy a
Germ tn shell and the .'brave little
band of fighters lsld low. I saw a

NEW. YORK?, Dec. ll.- Tho loss of
Ave hundred thousand men ss the
result of the present warfare could
be made good lu less than ten years
through complete abstenance from al
coholic drinks hy all the inhabitants
of Russia," according to Arthur Hun
ter, 'ST-New York actuary, who- report
ed to the convention of the Associa
tion of Life Insurance Presider* here
today some of the results ot an ex
haustive mortuary investigation just
completed by the life insurance com
panies into 2,000,000 insured lives in
the past 25 years.
Mr. Hunter is chairman of the cen
tral bureau of the Medlco-Acturial
Committee which has charge of the
three and one half year inquiry. The
investigation waa to enable the conl
oi forty-three of the leading compan
ies of the- United 8tates and Canada
in a great many groups of insured
persons, supposed to have a higher
than the'average among insured lives.
While the fundamental object of the
investigation was to enable the elm
panics in determining what risks in
the future should be accepted rated
up or-declined, Mr. Hunter said that
the results also could be utilised to
lengthen human life.
Taking up some of tho specific re
sults of the investigation, Mr. Hunter
Bald: "Nothing bas been more con
clusively proven than, that a steady
use of alcoholic beverages, or occas
slonally using it to excess, Injures
the individual. In my Judgment, it
has also bien proven beyond perad
venture of doubt that total abstain
once from alcohol is of value . to
humanity; lt ls certain that abstain
ers live longer than persons who use
alcoholic beverages. Among the men
who admitted that they had taken al
cohol, occasionally to excess in the
past, but whose habits were consid
ered satisfactory when they were in
sured, ther - were 289 deaths while
there would have, been only 190 had
this groupe been made up of Insured
lives In general. The extra mortality
was therefore, over 60 per cent,
whlcb waa equivalent to a reduction
In the average Ute of these men of
over four years."
One ot the most Insignificant results
of the investigation, he said, was the
high mortality experienced among
railroad men. Among locomotive en
glneera the mortality was 60 per cent
In execess of that among the insured
as a whole, which ls equivalent to
five years'. reduction in the average
"There is a general impression that
saloon keepers do not live as long as
persons In non-hazardous occupations,
he continued, ."but it is,-now general
ly known .hat moat , classes whick are
connected with elthef- the manuiac
I turo or sale of liquor have a high
I mortality. Among saloon proprietors
j whether they attend the bar or not
? there wu3 mn extra mortality ot 10 j
1 per cent; Ure cause of des tn indi- j
caled that a free use of alcohol bev
erages had ci.used many of the deaths.
In the fourteen sub-divlsioas of the
trades connected with the manufac
ture and sale of alcohol, there wes
only one class which. had a norxral
mortality snd that was the distille'y
