clared today that oven If England guar
anteed non-interference with the cargo It
was a question whether or not the In
surance could bo placed, as tho removal
of various nlds to havlRnllon and tho
placing of mints around German har

.STORIES FROM BATTLE FRONT
SHOW MINOR HORRORS OF WAR
A story of a boy leading a bayonet
charge Is told by Corporal Ishefwood,
D. C, 2d Manchester, , ono of ISO
wounded who recently arrived at Cardiff.
"On October roth the Germans were all
around us, nnd their fire enfiladed our
trenches. First our lieutenant wag
wounded, then tho sergeant, and we were
left without a single ofTlcer to command
the platoon. We wero wondering what to
do, when a private, a boy of 18, the baby
of the company, threw up his cap, and
with a ringing cbeer, yelled! "fix bay
onets, ladsl" Wo did, and charged the
advancing Germans The boy was in the
net of bayonettlng a German when the
latter shouted, "For God's sake, don't
stick mol" "It Is too late," replied the
youngster; "It Is through you."
One of the minor things that will re
main to mnrk this war Is a new Issue of
French coinage. The difference that will
mark tho coins struck during the tlmo
tho Invaders were In France Is very small,
but It Is rendered necessary by the fact
that tho French Mint has been removed
to Castelsarrasin, a picturesque, sleepy
little town near Toulouse. The alteration
will consist of changes In two little marks
of tho place of origin, placed one on
either ,slde of tho date, For the coins
struck In Paris theso signs have been a
tiny cornucopia nnd a torch. What tho
sign will be for the coins struck at Cas
telsarrasin Is not yet known.
A feature of the aerial part of the war
has been tho employment by both French
and German nlr corps of a new kind of
missile, a small steel arrow, which, when
dropped from a height, proves a peculiar
ly deadly weapon.
In recent fighting two soldiers of the
137th French Infantry Regiment captured
tho colors of the 28th Regiment of Ger
man Infantry, whose colonel was taken
prisoner. In recognition of this brilliant
feat of arms the colors of the 137th Infan
try have been decorated with tho Crown
of the Legion of Honor.
As to the singular Ideas of what con
stitutes neutrality that somo persons en
tertain, an Administration ofllclal at
Washington relates the following:
Two Irishmen were discussing the war.
One was extreme In his views, so his com
panion warned him that he ought to be
"Sure, and don't ye remember what the
President says about ye should not take
any sides In the war?" queried tho one.
"Faith, and Ol ant neutral," replied the
other: "I don't care what country whips
And speaking of the neutrality subject.
"Pat" McKenna, suave usher outside
President Wilson's office door. Is self-appointed
censor of discussion among news
paper men on war topics. Sometimes the
debate waxes warm. But "Pat," always
loyal to his chief, puts a summary stop
to those arguments.
"No wnr talk around here," ho com
mands "The first thins you know you'll

tion, and, besides'; you'll disturb the Presi
dent." A story of the heroism of the Belgian
