An American Business-Soldier in
the War Zone.
Part II.
That scene remains with me, and as I
looked them over my heart kind of choked
up into my throat when I thought who
they were. I thought of them as the
cream of America, the men chosen to
lead these forces of ours 3,000 miles
across the world. I want to tell you,
men, that I felt proud of those young
American officers, and proud of the
thought that I too was an American and
kin with those splendid young fellows.
(Applause.)
As we reached the deck and took our
place by the lifeboats the men from be
low came swarming up. Instead of any
confusion there was the utmost of order
and the utmost of politeness. I want to
say to vou that in all the time I was
aboard that ship, during that awful one
and three-quarters hours before we were
taken off I did not see a single, mean,
cowardly act. I did not see anything that
you could call discourteous. I did not
see a man push another aside to take his
place in the boat. On the other hand, I
saw7 scores of helpful acts, one man help
ing the other the best he could. I want
to tell you that the men we are sending
across the world are worthy. They are
going across in the pride of American
manhood. They are going to leave their
impression upon Europe. Not only will
they be known as splendid fighters, but
they will carry across the ideals and fair
play of America, so that we will no longer
be referred to as the barbarians of the
West. Believe me, Europe already is be
ginning to realize that the American is a
gentleman to his finger tips, whether he
comes from the workshop or the bank or
the office or the clergy, he is a gentleman.
Then began a scene that I shall never
forget. I wish I could forget. It was
many nights before I could close my eyes
and not have these pictures rise up before
me. Now, came the wroeful lack of ex
pert teaching in the handling oi the life
boats. The boys had never handled life
boats before and now they began suddenly
to try and lower these boats away. I
saw one boat get half way down, loaded
with men, and then the rope on the front
davit stopped and the rope on the rear
one gave way and the whole load of men
was spilt into the sea. I saw another
boat fully loaded with men successfully
launched and the plug in the bottom of
the boat was missing and the water
spouted up. I could see it like a silver
stream as my flashlight bore down upon
it. And I could see some of the fellows
sticking their hands in there, trying to
hold their fingers in the hole to keep the
water from coming in, while others were
bailing out.
I saw another boat successfully launch
ed but the boys had not been told to push
rapidly away as soon as it was launched
so that the boat floated under a davit
from which was suspended another boat.
Soon the order was given to lower the
boat hanging in the davit and that boat
crashed down on the boat below, and
killed everybody in it. They might have
been saved by a little training.
I have been criticized for saying these
things, but I am going to keep on saying
them until the lesson is driven home to
the authorities at Washington. (Applause.)
Then began for us an anxious time.
About 20 minutes had elapsed before any
sign of a returning ship hove in sight.
You see the first thing that happens when
one of the convoy is torpedoed is not
what you would ordinarily expect, the
other ships to turn about and come back
again to the aid of the wounded ones.
That would be foolish. It would mean
the hazarding of the entire convoy and
that is never done. In fact, the ships
apply full steam and go ahead as fast as
possible. That is what happened this
night. There was no lack of gallantry
in this. It is ordinary common sense.
To have come back would have been
putting countless numbers of our boys on
the other ships in danger. That was
most unnecessary and unwise. But I
thought certainly that some destroyers
would come back, then as the minutes
slipped along that hope grew very faint
indeed. But it is strange, the humor you
can get out of a situation, even an in
tense situation like this.
1 rememner tnai l nan iorgonen my
lifesuit, and it lay to one side and a great
long fellow from down in Arkansas, who
had been standing beside me, he and I
had grown very intimate, said: “Why,
Mr. Larned, what have you got in the
package there?” I said: “Oh, 1 forgot
that. That is my lifesuit.” He said:
“What are you going to do, carry it or
wear it?” (Laughter.) I said: “I am sup
posed to wear it, I might as well put it
on.” So we tried to get it on. The ship
by this time was beginning to list over
to one side very much and it was not
very pleasant standing where we were.
I wasn’t taking any more time than
necessary in getting into the thing, but
hustled into it with the aid of another
fellow, only to find that in our haste I got
it on wrong side to, and as near as I figure
it if I had worn it in that position and
gotten in the water 1 would have floated
beautifully with my head about two feet
under water. (Laughter.) We were none
of us mechanical engineers, which one
almost needed to bi to get that suit on,
but finally we did get it on and get it on
right.
The lights had suddenly come on, from
an auxiliary storage battery, I presume,
and the result was that we were more
conspicuous that moment, with the lights
flashing out through the dark than at any
other time during our trip, standing out
there a fair mark for the submarine,
which no doubt was laying to one side
watching the proceedings.
But after about 40 minutes we saw a
little wink of light over on the port side
and a destroyer came along our port side
forward and passed ropes to us and the
boys slid down the ropes into the des
troyer. They soon filled her. We could
n’t get any place near her, the crowd was
so great. We did not have any chance
to board her, and as she finally cast off
her rope and pulled away into the dark
ness our own lights began growing dim
mer and dimmer, like a dying soul, and
the general atmosphere was somewhat
tflnnmv.
This same chap who helped me with
the lifesuit was about the coolest fellow
I ever saw in my life. I missed him there
for a minute, 1 said to somebody: “Well,
where is Hank?” He said: “Here I be.”
I saw him coming around the end of the
dock, I said to him: “Hank, where have
you been? He said: “I been down be
low. You know that room where we had
the entertainment the other night?” I
said: “Yes.” “Well,” he said, “that
is just full of water now.” I said: “How
■do you know?” He said: “Well, I got
thirsty and went down after a drink.”
(Laughter.) Imagine a man thirsty
enough, when the ship was sinking and
keeling over on her side, thirsty enough
to go down to a room and get a drink.
(Laughter). I don’t know what that fel
low would do in Michigan now we have
gone dry. (Laughter.)
We had been there for about an hour
and three-quarters when we heard a
voice forward singing out: “Any 100
squadron men here? And then we sudden
ly discovered that three' of us had been
standing there, smoking and talking. We
had not discovered for a moment that
our companions had melted away and
disappeared. So we started forward in
those suits. A friend of mine who was
with me had one also. They are most
cumbersome things. They are weighted
in the feet with heavy weights. They
are not the sort of thing that you would
take out for an afternoon walk. You feel
loaded down considerably. We got for
ward. It was extremely dark but we
could make out forward on our starboard
side the outlines of another ship drawn
up beside us, right alongside the big
wound made in the ship by the torpedo.
We had sunk so low down on our side
that our deck was pretty'near level with
| that of the destroyer. You know how
one of these big ocean liners stand out of
the water, like an office building, way up
high in the air and how the destroyer is
almost level with the water, but we had
come down far enough so that our deck
was level with the deck of the destroyer,
which you know rides very low in the
water. The sea is frequently washed
completely over their aft deck. The
| boys clambered over the rail. It was
somewhat difficult for me to get over.
The other boys were younger and more
active than myself and they got over
easily, but it was quite difficult for me to
: make it. Finally I got one foot over the
rail and then I noticed that the destroyer
was pulling away. I could see that water
opening up beneath there. 1 wasn’t very
careful then about getting over the rail
but I made one final jump over the side
and grabbed the cable that went around
the end of the destroyer and was immed
iately grabbed by the jack tars on board
the destroyer and hauled aboard.
Then began the most interesting time
there on the British destroyer. There
; were 508 survivors of the Tuscania aboard
that ship. She was a little ship with a
crew of perhaps 150 to 175 men and her
quarters were exceedingly restricted be
! cause these ships are greyhounds indeed.
1 This boat has a capacity of 38 knots an
hour, which means great engine power.
It seemed as though that crew was out
for an afternoon reception. This was the
first time they had had a bunch of Ameri
cans to rescue. They had rescued French
and English. They had rescued Chinese
and Italians and practically every other
nationality but they never had had the
pleasure of rescuing a bunch of Ameri
i cans and they were making the most of
1 us. They could not have been more
cordial if we had been their own brothers.
They did everything possible for us to
make us feel that they were glad to see
From pictures I had seen of the British
tar I expected to see a grizzled fellow
with a beard down to about here and a
very active chew of tobacco in his mouth
and that sort of an individual, you know.
Well now, I saw nothing of the sort.
These fellows were really boys and had
the most attractive faces you ever saw in
your life, young fellow's, not very old,
and when I saw the work they were doing
I and when I saw their fearlessness and
j their perfect behavior, I couldn’t help
but admire them.
Now, think of this feature of it. This
destroyer came alongside of us, knowing
that that U-boat was out there in the
darkness, and that is another of the evil
j characteristics of the U-boat. She waits
; out there in the darkness, watches for
| the destroyer or the rescuing ship to come
i to the rescue of the crew or the passen
gers, waits until the destroyer is packed
with people and then sends a torpedo
against it. But this destroyer utterly
disregarded all of the traditions of the
German U-boat commander. He brought
his ship directly alongside our ship and
took us off and then he cruised about
picking up as many as he could in the
water. It was a splendid exhibition of
nerve and some of the men aboard our
ship said: “Captain, in God’s name, pull
away. That U-boat will get us ” He
said: ‘1 won’t pull away as long as I can
see man afloat.” (Applause.)
I want to tell you, men, that if we live
to be a hundred years old, all of us, we
thank God every day of our life for the
British navy. (Applause.)
We had a most interesting five hours
aboard this little ship. She tossed and
rolled and worked her way over the
troublesome sea and finally landed us at
three o’clock in the morning in the north
of Ireland. We went alongside a dock,
and clambered up a long ladder and got
up onto the dock, and say, maybe that
dock didn’t feel good. (Laughter and ap
plause.) I walked to the end of the dock
and found the men forming in line, and
just as I was about to step off of the dock
I stubbed my toe and in righting myself I
put my hand ojt like that and put it on
top of the Ford car that stood right there.
(Laughter.)
Wp fnrmpH in lino <hpn anH marphpd
three miles to a barrack where we met a
regiment of Irish soldiers and enjoyed
real Irish hospitality. I tell you it was
worth while to be torpedoed just to land
in Ireland and feel the grip of welcome of
an Irish hand. You would have thought
that every woman and child there was
related to us by intimate blood ties.
They treated us as if we were long lost
sons and- brothers that had just come
back to the homeland from a trip to a
dangerous country, and then they began
asking Us questions, right and left, tak
ing it for granted that we knew every
Irishman in America. “You don’t know
Tim Dolan? Why, you ought to know
him because he is a police officer in Chi
cago.”
Ireland has her heart strings over here
to America in a way that you do not
realize until you go over there and talk
with them. They have all got relatives
over here. They all love America. They
look upon America as the big brother.
They think that the finest thing in the
world would be to have Ireland annexed
to America. I wish we could move it
over to ua and attach it to ua. It would
be a good neighbor to ua though I ques
ion it very much that we would find it
very easy to govern Ireland. (Laughter.)
Now, mind you, at the present mo
ment, the only difficulty in Ireland, as I
see it, is this: Ireland can have anything
she wants at the present moment in the
way of government providing her people
can decide upon what they wan* But
the trouble is that every In. in. i' i .s a

Under Certain Conditions, Tiger Can
Probably Be Awakened in Each
Individual.
; They tell us,” said Mr. Bltnksome,
“that^we all have a tiger in us, that we
are all of us savages under our skin;
kept from revealing our true natures
only by the restraining force of cus
tom and the law.
“In a general way I have always be
lieved this to be true, and yet I have
always supposed there must be ex
ceptions. You take, for instance, a
certain mild-mannered neighbor of
ours whom we have known for many
years, a man in all circumstances kind,
gentle, forbearing; seeing good in
everyone and willing to make excuses
for everybody. There was one person
who I knew had no tiger.
“Our mild-mannered neighbor drop
ped in to see us yesterday, just after
I had read something in the paper,
and I picked the paper up again and
read this thing to him. It was an
account of something that the Ger
mans had just done.
“It was a circumstantial, careful, ex
act and apparently truthful statement,
and yet the thing described was some
thing so contrary to all civilized
usages that it seemed incredible, and I
said to him:
“‘You don’t believe that, do you?’
! "At that our mild-mannered neigh
i bor fired up. Fired up? He flamed
up.
‘“Believe it?’ he said. ‘I believe
every word of it,* and then he pro
ceeded to tell me what he would do
to the Germans if he could.
“Had he a tiger in him? Well!
“So now I am inclined to think that
we all have a tiger in us, that there
is no exception; only with some of
us it takes one thing and with some
another thing to make the tiger
waken.”
Why Torpedoed Ships Sink.
The committee appointed by the
Council of the Institution of Naval Ar
chitecture to inquire into the effects of
explosions of mines and torpedoes
upon the structure of merchant ships
| find that there are three principal
causes of loss. First, the existence.of
a forward reserve bunker partitioned
i off from the cargo hold by a non-wa
I tertight bulkhead. A second cause of
! loss is the failure to close the water
j tight door in the engine room bulk
i head leading to the shaft tunnel. A
! third danger lies in the main drain
| pipes, leading from t lie bilge pumps to
the different compartments, and pass
ing through all watertight bulkheads,
which are generally fractured in tor
pedoed compartments. There should
be non-return valves on the end of
these pipes. The committee recoin
\ mends that bulkheads should be pro
: tected as far as possible from flying
splinters, at least temporarily, by using
j timber or other suitable material as a
splinter-screen.—Scientific American.
Bacon and Beef.
American bacon will be used to
stretch out British beef supplies. The
scheme of rationing, which already is
in operation in London and the sur
rounding countries, is to be extended
■ at once, and after this only two of the
I four weekly coupons will be available
| for the purchase of butcher’s meat,
i Tlie object is to diminish the demand
for home grown cattle during the
months when these can be fattened on
grass. The new order limits the pur
! chase of beef, mutton and pork to 20
cents a head weekly, but does not af
fect diners in restaurants and hotels,
who are permitted to exchange cou
pons for meat meals.
Children over six will be entitled
after April 14 to a full adult ration
of meat. All coupons are cashable for
bacon and poultry.
Woman Champion Maker of Fliea.
The title of world’s champion arti
ficial fly maker is proudly claimed for
Miss Alice Sherwin Coleman of New
York, who for more than a decade has
been making flies for anglers. Some
idea of her reputation among the dis
ciples of Izaak Walton may be. gath
ered from the fact that she and her
assistants make $400,000 worth of flies
for fishing enthusiasts every year.
Miss Coleman makes 300 different
varieties of flies regularly summer
and winter, special orders bringing the
number up to 1,500 varieties altogether;
for such is Miss Coleman's reputation
that exacting fishermen in the wilds
of America sometimes catch strange
flies that hover over particular streams
and send them alive in a ventilated
bottle so that she may study and re
produce them accurately.
The Hopeless Amateur.
“It requires patience to be a success
ful gardener.”
“Yes. But you can overdo it. I
planted some seeds two years ago and
I’ve waited all this time without a
murmur for them to come up and do
something. I'm going to give them
one more summer and then if they
don’t make good I’m going to dig up
the whole patch and start over.”
Belligerent Pacifism.
“Are your constituents in favor of

COOK PROVED NERO
His Deed of Bravery Deserves to
Be Recorded.

! Joseph Marcio’s Saving of Comrade
Washed Overboard Proof, That
Courage in Navy Is Not Con
fined to the Fighters.
Many brave things have been done
by the men of these hard-driven Amer
ican ships, and one of them stands out
superbly, writes Ralph D. Paine in the
Saturday Evening Post. It was the
rescue of a man overboard in the
midst of a storm. This vessel was
caught out in it while on convoy duty
and her survival was little short of a
miracie. The French marines called
! it the worst blow the Bay of Biscay
j had seen in eight years. Its violence j
was that of a hurricane, with a wind j
j velocity approaching, a hundred miles j
an hour, such a storm as would have
sorely pounded and damaged a great ;
Atlantic liner. j
The ship was more or less Knocked
| into kindling wood, both masts broken
off and rolled out of her, all three boats
I smashed and carried away, decks gut
! ted, life rails splintered, compartments
flooded. The ship was rolling 55 de
i grees, or almost flat on her side, and
| when she plunged, more than half the
length of her keel w;t# in the air. In
the midst of it the steering gear jam
med and the ship was likely to broach
to and founder unless it could be clear
ed. The chief quartermaster, E. H
; Robertson, volunteered for the jol
| and was presently washed overboard,
i carried off to leeward on the back of
j a roaring sea.
There was not one chance in a mil
lion of saving him. He was as good as
dead, and vanished. The ship was run
ning before the storm and a quarter j
of an hour passed before she could be i
brought to, a very dangerous maneu
ver, which again swept iter clean. The ■
quartermaster had not gone down, but
was visible on the lee bow, swimming
with the courage of a man who re
fuses to surrender to the inevitable. 1
Lines were thrown to him, but he was j
unable to reach them. Even if the ,
boats had not been smashed it wouldf j
have been impossible to launch one.g!
A life raft was shoved over, and it
floated toward Robertson so that he
could clutch it and hang on.
This was merely to prolong his ag
ony. however, for he could do nothing
more to help himself. He had been in
the water 17 minutes, buffeted, strang
led, freezing. The month was Decem
ber, the temperature of the sea 36 de
grees. Among those who looked on
and pitied the exhausted man who had
made such a plucky fight of it was the
t ship's cook. Joseph JIarcio. His realm
! of pots and pans being wrecked and i
awash, he turned his attention to this
affair of the drowning quartermaster.
Knotting a line about his middle and
making no fuss about it he jumped in
ti) tin1 sea and swam to Robertson, a
! veritable porpoise of a sea cook with
a soul as big as all outdoors.
Tile ship had some way on her and j
could not be wholly stopped. It hap
pened, therefore, that when the cook
grabbed the quartermaster they were
, slowly towed through the seas. The
strain was tf-rriiie and the rope nearly |
cut the cook in two. but he clung to his j
man until they were fetched alongside I
and hauled aboard together.
The quartermaster was unconscious,
and the cook also collapsed on deck,
but was thawed out with no serious
damage. This Joseph JIarcio was
promoted to the rating of chief com
missary steward in recognition of the
deed and was recommended for the
gold life-saving medal of the navy de
partment.
Clark’s Day Dream.
In an address in Washington some
time ago Speaker Clark said, accord
ing to the Pathfinder, that if he should
suddenly find himself possessed of the
wealth of a Rockefeller the first thing
he would do would be to establish a
i publishing house In St. Louis, Mo.
; “Then,” he said, “I’d publish an un
abridged dictionary, with words pro
nounced the way the people of the
(country pronounce them, and put It on
the market to compete with those eom
: posed by somebody up in a garret
who’s trying to make people here talk
like those in England.
| “The next thing I’d do would be to
have a real history of the United
States composed and published under
my supervision. In it I would give
the people who have done things
credit.”
