,EARN THEIR CROSSES
WRITER TELLS OF BRAVERY OF
GERMAN FIELD COOKS.
Are Held Responsible for Feeding the
Men in the Trenches, and Well
and Nobly They Are Doing
"There isn't anything heroic about
cooks," writes Herbert Corey to the
New York Globe, "and when things go
wrong one either apprehends a cook
as chasing a waiter with a bread knife
or giving way to tears." Yet the Ger
man army contains many a cook whose
expansive apron is decorated with the
iron cross. "And the iron cross," Mr.
Corey reminds us, "is conferred for
one thing only-for 100 per cent cour
.ago." The writer tells an interesting
"'They've' earned it,' said the nan
who had seen them. 'They are the
bravest men in the kaiser's four mil.
lions. I've seen generals salute greasy,
paunchy, sour-looking army cooks.'
"The cook's job is to feed the men
of his company. Each German com
pany is followed or preceded by a field
kitchen on wheels. Sometimes the fires
are kept going while the device
trundles along. The cook stands on
the footboards and thumps his bread.
He is always tho first ian up in the
morning and the last to sleep at night.
The Teutoin believes in plenty of food
-of a sort. A well-fed soldier will
fight. A hungry one may not.
"'When the company gets into camp
at night,' said the inan who knows,
'the ccok is there before it, swearing
at his fires and the second cook, and
turning out quantities of a depressing
looking veal stew, which is, neverthe
less, very good to cat.'
"'When that company goes into the
trenches the cook stays behind. There
is no place for a field kitchen in a four
foot trench. But these men in the
trench must be fed. The Teuton in
sists that all soldiers must be fed
but especially the men in a trench.
The others may go hungry, but these
must have tight belts. Upon their
staying power may depend the safety
of an army.
"'So, as the company cannot go to
the cook, the cook goes to the com
pany. When meal hour comes he puts
a yoke on his shoulders and a cook's
cap on his head and, warning the sec
ond cook as to what will happen if he
lets the fires go out, puts a bucketful
of the veal stew on either end of the
yoke and goes to his men. Maybe the
trench is under fire. No matter. His
men are in that trench and must be
"'Sometimes the second cook gets his
step right here. Sometimes the ap
prentice cook-the dish washer-is
summoned to pick up the cook's yoke
and refill the spilled buckets and tramp
steadily forward to the line. Some
times 'the suplly of assistant cooks,
even, runs short. But the men in the
trenches always get their food.
"'That's why so many cooks in the
German army have iron crosses dan
gling from their breasts,' said the man
who knows. 'No braver men ever lived.
The man in the trench can duck his
head and light his pipe and be rela
tively safe. No fat cook yoked to two
buckcets of vecal stew ever' can be safe
sas lie marches down the trench under
.fire. But he always marches. His men
arc always fed, ad~d fed on time, 'Tho
hero of the German campaign is the
fat cook of the field kitchen.' "

BIRDS THE FRIENDS OF MAN
Investigation Has Shown the Extent
of Their Ravages on Insects That
Destroy the Crops.
A recent government bulletin in the
interest of bird conservation gives
some facts demonsteating'their ut6eful.
ness ats insect anid noxious weed de
stroyers that should becomo general
A tree swallow's stomach was found
to contain 40 entire chinch bugs and
fragments of many other's, besides oth
er species of Insects. A bank swallow
li Texan devoured 68 cotton boll wee
vils. Thirty-flve clift swallows had
taken ,an average of 18 boll weevils
each. Two stomachs of pine siskins
from -laywards, Cal., contained 900
black olive scales and 300 plant lice.
A killdeer's stomach taken in Novem
ber in Texas contained over 300 mos
quito larvae. A flicker's stomach held
28 white grubs. A night hawk's stom
ach collected in Ketucky contained 34
beetles, the adult form of white grubs.
Another night hawk from New York
had eaten 24 clover leaf weevils and
375 ants. Still another night hawk
had eaten 3,10 grasshopiers, 52 bugs,
three beetles, two wasps and a Spider.
A bobtailed grackle from Texas had
eaten at one meal about one hundred
cotton boll worms besides a few oth
er insects. A ring-neeked phleasant's
crop fron Washington contained 8,000.
seeds of chickweed and dandelion
The quail, between his cheery calls
of "1lo) White," is busy consuming 135
varieties of lusects. lie will eat on an
average 75,000 Insects and 6,000,000
weed seeds a year. Ile is the natural
enemy of the boll weevil and the po
tato bug and the best friend of man,
who is trying to destroy him in near
ly every state.
In fact, there are few birds that are
not the friends of the farmer, paying
him many times over in the destruc
tion of Insects and noxious weed seeds
for the small amount of toll they take
from his crops.
Singing While in Danger.
Though there Is no definite rule laid
down in the British naval regulations,
yet It has become an unwritten one
for the offlcers to instruct their men
to sing when they are in great danger,
as for instance, when their ship has
been mined or torpedoed and Is sink
Thus many of the men on board the
Formidable went bravely to their
deaths singing "Tipperary." A popu
lar song, as a rule, Is ordered to be
sung because most of the sailors
know it, and collective singing puts
more heart in them and helps them to
hang on as long as possible till help
Some years ago some sailors from
the Vernon were blown up In Ports
mouth harbor. It was In the middle
of January, and an icy blizzard made
things worse than usual. The lieu2
tenant in command, who was swim
ining in the water, yelled out to his
men, who were also battling for their
lives, "Sing '13111 Dailey,'" and prob
ably that once popular song was never
sung under stranger conditions. It
Is said that the lieutenant swain

who weren't singing!-Pearson's.
Much Unknown About Marbles.
Though the western part of Verb
mont includes the most ' extensive
marble Industry In this country, the
eastern part is a virgin fleld wvhere, in
the lack of a general study of the
stratigraphy, the structure, the Pale
ontology, andl the areal geology, It is
at present not only impossible to de
termine the area and position of many
of the beds, but also even the thick
ness of some of the marble formations
which are but partly exposed. The
marbles of eastern Vermont, nmany of
which are dolomitic, vary wvidely in
hind andl character, andl the outcrcps,
though. few in numbor', arc scattered
from the Mlassachusetts line to the
Canadian boundary. AMany of the
marbles are suitedl only for indoor
ornamental use. The great er parit of
the ledges are to be classed as m in
eral reserves which will beC drawnl on
in tho future.
