CHAPLAIN T. M. BULLA.
By Chaplain H. *G. Bedinger. He had the habit of going aside each evening after Bupper to read his Bible and then leaving the building alone. I noticed it and one evening asked him where he had been and he replied: "Out in the old pavilion to have a talk with God." His regi ment at one time was used to guard the bridges on the railroads about Norfolk, and it was his custom to visit the men in their tents and read the Bible and pray with them. He was ridiculed by a fellow chaplain one day for his old-fashioned idea of dealing with soldiors, and he afterward re VVANTED ? White woman as nurse for young baby.

Auditor marked upon it and said that no sol dier had ever resented his action, but that they seemed to appreciate his in terest In them and to respect him all the more for his reading the Bible and praying with them. Here is the story of his death as I nave pieced it together from the ac counts of two soldiers who knew him: Sergeant W. S. Carroll, of SufTolk \a., knew him well and said that at Camp McClellan, Anniston, Ala., he was chaplain of the Fourth Virginia Infantry Regiment. At training camp in France this outfit was broken up and he was assigned to the 112th Machine Gun Battalion. This wa* early in July. ln August he went with his men into the trenches and they soon were engaged In battle. On one occasion when they were In a heavy barrage and many of the men had been killed he took his place at a machine gun and assisted in success fully repelling a German attack. In September he was transferred to the Second Battalion, 116th Infan try. 29th Division, and again he went with his men into action. He was always with the men; worked in the first aid station under shell fire; fear lessly risked his life repeatedly to bring in the wounded; known by all the men in the battalion and loved like a brother. On October 8th he went "over the top" with the men in an attack, and a few days later was assisting volunteers in bringing up food and ammunition through a heavy barrage when he was hit by shrapnel. fnH ? ^?n th8 Wa7 t0 the hospital, and to the very last showed the cour age and heroism which marked his actions from the beginning and all through the dangers of the battlefield. "MEL" TROTTER FINDS SOLDIER BOYS EAGER FOR GOS PEL TALKS. Mel Trotter, superintendent of th? Pacific Garden Mission, Chicago, who nas been doing religious work in the army camps under the T. M. C. A for the past fourteen months, said recently: ''Before I began I had a definite understanding that my work was to be straight gospel preaching. I was not to be sandwiched in between vaudeville 'stunts.' I had with me Mr. Homer A. Hammontree, of the Moody Bible Institute, soloist, and a male quartet of Moody students, and I thought that would be entertain ment enough. But when we first smarted it was thought advisable to begin the meeting with some light popular songs. Very soon, however, the boys told us they didn't want the froth, so thereafter we had straight gospel aervices, and in the embarka tion camps we have averaged 1,000 conversions a week. "In every camp we visited I found that from one to fifty or sixty of the religious workers were Moody Insti tute men. "In our work we try to enlist the converts in what we call the 'church universal.' If they are willing to join a church we send their names to the pastors of their home churches. The latter receive them formally and put them In their service flags and no tify them that they have been admit ted to membership. I know of one instance where a soldier boy joined the home church in this way, and be fore the day arrived for taking him in, all the other members of his fam ily were converted and Joined at the same time." Mr. Trotter paid eloquent tribute to the w/>rk of the southern preach ers in the camp hospitals. "Some how," he said, "they know better than we northerners how to sympathize, and meet the soul needs of th* boyi who ars sick or dying."
