"Dodgo tho big ones," tho captain

ness of tho shooting that causes tho
men to dodgo. When they beconlo

It Is told of a hero In tho Hpai.uh
American war who was commissioned
a major In tho American Volunteer
army, although he hnd no previous
mllltnry oxpurlonco except at a mili
tary school, that as ho was going Into
action at San Juan hill ono of tho reg
ular army olllcers noticed tho major's
white race and chattering tenth.
".Major, you are setirod." tho tegular
"I know It," sold tho major. "If you
wero half as scared as I am ou would
bo twenty mllos from hero."
It Is not only tho soldlem who
showed heroism under flro In Kuropi.
Tho civilians wero heroes us well. In
Ilulglum the fanners woro In tho

crossed their frontier. Tho fanners
continued hun'ostliig their crops bo

chose the wiser course.
War correspondents tell how thoy
found French women knitting whllo
tho lighting was going on. Thero was
nothing lor thorn to do but knit. Then
why run? As thoy knitted tlioy com
mented on tho shots which dropped
around thonr. In Helms It Is told how
women near tho cothodral counted tho
shylls as they struck that edldco.
Thero Is n talo of a soldier In tliu
trenches who was known to every
body as a coward. Ho always would
hug tho bottom of tho trench. It
seemed ho never could get over It. nut
ho was passionately fond of cigarettes.
Ono "lay whllo tlio bullets woro whis
tling ubovo his trench a soldier In a
neighboring trench held up clgnrettas
to lilin. Ho Jumped up, raced to the
otlicr trench and cauio back triumph
antly with tho cigarettes. Ho was un

proportion to their numbers than any
nthar class of mcu. That Is duo to the
risks thoy Insist on tnklng. That Is
particularly truo In tho English army,
wlioro tho olllcers risk their lives
needlessly. Tho Qormans would ho
court-martialed for risking tholr lives
as much as tho English ofllcors do.
Tho English say thoy do It to stendy

Tho samo Is truo to n considerable
extent lit tho American army. Tho
losses of olllcers In tho Rpnnlsh-Amorl-can
war wns surprisingly great. Of
course tho SpanlBli-Aniciiciui war was
not on tho proportions of this wur and
tlio sharpshooters figured extensively.
An ofllccr in our rogulnr army who
saw lighting In tho Bpunlsh war, pMiit
cd out tho other day that most porsonB
had a very wrng conception of huw
soldiers light ii modern battles.
"Bklrmlsh ü i Ills In times of penco
liuvu taught tin i troops how to act to

quickly tho nnn adapt themselves to
tho conditions of actual hatllo. It Is

They know tho characteristics of tho
individual prlvatos In n way that tho
commissioned olllcors can never know
tliom nnd oro propared to glvo n calm
ing word to this or that ono when tho
emergency arises. In my own oxpurl
onco I huvo known a private who had
served three enlistments to take
charge of u company In a charge nnd
tho olllcers and non-coms woro very
glnd to leave It to him. After tho scrap
was over ho beenmo a prlvnto ouco
more, but whllo that row was on, so
far as actual Influence with tho men
wns concerned, ho wns of a grcnt deal
more Importance than his cnptaln. Tho
wny that man would wrlgglo Into

through thrco campaigns without n

"Thero tins been much discussion of
bravery In Imttlo slnco tho war start

very much u matter of temporument.
Bomo men nro carried along by a sort
of ecstasy, others hold themsolvos to
tho work by sheer forco of will, whllo
others, nnd thosa nro tho best, go
through a fight with u sort of grim In

USE FOR LEFT-OVER TURKEY

Generally tharo Is quito n bit of tho
turkey left over, not enough perhaps
for a full meal again but quita sufll
clout for an excellent salad for an eve
ning function, high ten or a course
luncheon. If tho whlto turkoy ment
docs run short It Is an easy matter to
supplement It with soma of tho dark
meat or oven roast veal or fresh pork
and no ono will ho tho wiser. Cut thn
meat Into dice, then mensuro and al
low an equal quantity of celery, cut
In fairly good-sized pieces. It you linvo
any walnuts, butternuts or almonds,
cook them In n llttlo stock or boiling
salted wntor for twonty minutes, then
chop fino. At serving tlino mix to

garnish for this Is tho stuffed olives or

In tho samo way. A fow spoonfuls of
tho stock In which tho chicken has
been boiled, makes a richer salad.
