That thunder in the soil, at first too
deep within it to he audible, haul come
to the surface now and graidlInlly be
came heard as the thunler of at lilfion
feet upon the lraining grounilds. The
bugles rang sharlr; the drums1111. and
fifes of town and village and country
side were the drums ad fifes ofi a
war that enme closer and closer to
every hearth between (lithe two oelnins.
All the old( symb)ol8 beenei syblols
bright and new, as If no one had ever
seen them before. "A ierlen" wias iIke i
new word, and the song "Americn"
was lIke i new song. All the dusty
blatancIes of orating 'nutidiltes, seek
Ing to rouse bored audItors with "the
old flag"; all the mechanical patriotics
of school and church and club; all
these tinie-worn, flacield things leaped
sudde"nly into living color. The flag
becane brilliant and strange to see
strange with a meaning that seemed
new, a nmeaning long known, yet never
known till now.
And so hearts that thought they
knew themselves nme upon imushes
of emotion and hidden indwellings of
spirit nt atuessed before. Dora Yo

tine there was any talk of war, and
you hail about a1s much responsibility
for my going as some little sparrow or
somethimg. Of course I don't mean I
didn't pay any attention to the differ
cnt things you said, because I always
did, itnd I used to worry over it be
enuse I was afraid some day it would
get you into trouble, and I'm mighty
glad you've cut it out. That's right:
you he a regular girl now. You always
were one, and I knew that all right.
I'm not as scared to write to you as I
was to talk to you, so I guess you know
I was mighty tickled to get your letter.
It sounded blue, but I was glad to get
it. You bet I'll write to you I I don't
suppose you could have any Idea how
glad I was to get your letter. I could
sit here and write to you all day if
they'd let me, but I'm a corporal now.
When you answer this, I wish you'd
say how the old town looks and If the
grass in the front yards is as green as
it usually is, and everything. And tell
me some more about everything you
think of when you are working down
at the Red Cross like you said. I guess
I've rend your letter live million times,
and that part ten million. I mean
where you underlined that 'you' and
what you said to yourself at the IRed
Cross. Oh, murder, but I was glad to
rend that! Don't forget about writing
anything else you think of like that.

I'm here. It wasn't you.
"Don't forget to write pretty soon,
Dora. You say in your letter-I cer
tainly was glad to get that letter-'
well, you say I have things to do more
important than 'girls.' Dora, I think
you probably know without my saying
so that of course while I have got im
portant things to do, just as every
man over here has, and everybody at
home, for that matter, well, the thing
that is most important in the world to
me, next to helping win this war, it's
reading the next letter from you.
"Don't forget how glad I'll be to get
it, and don't forget you didn't have
anything to do with my being over
here. That was-it was something
else. And you bet, whatever happens
I'm glad I Caine! Don't ever forget
that I"
Dora knew it was "something else."
Tier memory went back to her first rec
ollection of himo in school: 'ron that
time on he had been just an ordinary,
everyday boy, floundering somehow
through his lessons in school and
through his sweethearting with Milla,
as the millions of other boys flioun
dered along with their own lessons
and their own Millas. She saw him
swinging his books and romping home
ward from the schoolhouse, or going
whistling by her father's front yard,
rattling a stick on the fence as he
wont, care-free and masterful, but shy
as a deer if strangers looked at him,
and always "not muelt of a talker."
shie hal hways felt so superior to
h1im ; she shuddered as she thought of
it. Ills quiet had been so nucha bet ter
than her talk. 111 Intelligence was
proven now, when it came to the great
test, to be of at stronger sort than hers.
lie was wise and good and gentle
and a fighting tuan ! "We know what
they've done to this country and what
(hey mnean to do to ours. So we're
going to attend to them." She read
this over, and she knew that Italnsey,
wise ant gentle and good, wouli fight
like tn unchaied devil, and that he
and his colilraudes would itndeed and
indeed( do what they "came for."
"It wasn't you," he said. She nod
'led gently, agreeing, and knew what
it was that sent him. Yet ltamsey
hart his own secret here, and lid not
loil it. Sotnetimes there rose, 1,aIn1t in
his mielory, at whimtsiclnI picture, yet
ine that had always nennat much to

sey's maemory, the little boy, sitt ing
beside the vetean, would~ half clase
his eyes, drowsily, playing that this
suinsinie spot wits a white bird's-nest,
unitil he 1had( ai momttentatry dreamit of a
glittering little bairdi that dlwelt there
uind wore a blute soldier cinp on its
htead. And Itaimsey would bring (aut of
his maemlory' thoulghts that the 01(d mani
hadi~ got in to thew child's head1( that daiy.
