Three days later a lot of us left for
tho cavalry training school at .leffer-
win Barracks, Missouri. Three months
later I was sent to Tort Sam Houston,
Texas, being regularly assigned to the
Fifth Cavalry.
Plans to Kdurate Himself
I began at once In my spare lime to
master tho common school elements ot
an education. Always when I received
an order from corporal, sergeant or
captain I would strike a comparison,
asking myself, "What has lie got on
me? and uluays tho answer Educa
tion" spurred me on.
But In those days .when Uncle Sam's l
little army of 25,000 men was an ex-'
cluslvo family eveiy recruit had to go
through his puces in nis troop. I
have known many good men to desert
because they could not stand tho bully
ing and arrogance that was meant to
try them out. A tough young New j
Yorker in my troop who was Diticr ue
cause the captain had wisely over
looked him in a recent promotion of
n corporal tesented my efforts at studv
Kecrults were considered presumptuous
who dared to use the chairs, which
were few, in the snuad rooms, so I
used to lie on my bunk with my books.
Occasionally a shoo or a cowhide boot
would fly hi my direction, always from
the samp source, striking mo on the
head or knocking my book from mv
hands This was followed by peals of
laughter from my comrades and looks
of perfect Innocence. "Nack" Devlin
had taught me to never make any
throats, to wait until I was ready, then
do it quick.
I took occasional trips out Into the
cliupairul prairie behind the post,
where, 1 measured off a hundred-yard
stretch for running and exercised with
a pair of improvised dumbbells.
When I was satisfied with the condi
tion of my wind and musclo I waited
for my chance to square accounts with
"Bed," the New Yorker.
Bendy for a Good Scrap
At last it came. The old sergeant
In charge of the room was the only
man present beside my ..nnoyer, when
bang! came a boot knocking some
skin off my nose and sending my book
Very quietly I got up.
"Sergeant, how much of that aro
you going to allow?"
"All you can stand, sonny."
"Well, I can't stand any more."
"All right." He lit his pipe and left
the squad room, closing tho door be
hind him.
"Bed and I were alone.
" 'Bed,' go over nnd pick up my
book." I spoko very quietly.
Ho turned crimson with rage and
surprise. "What the Who tho "
It was all over In three minutes. At
stables that evening the old sergeant
reported "Bed" sick In quarters. The
following night the bully asked me to
take a hand in p. game of five hundred
as casually as though wo had been
friends since the Civil War.
I was established In tho troop and
had learned my second lesson. Before
this llttlo incident I had always, felt
a profound reverence for everything
anil every one tagged "New York":
The Eighteenth Infantry was sta
tioned with tho Fifth Cnvaln- at Fort
Sam Houston. A transfer tc the
"Doughboys" took me over to the Phil
ippines with tho second expedition,
whero I received my baptism of Are
in the trenches south of Manila during
the attacks leading up to tho surrender
of tho city on August 13, 1898. The
first tlmo under fire I waa mortally
afraid. Tho squirrcl-llke bark of the
distant Mausers followed by a sharp
zip! an occasional sput! followed by
a groan as a man to my right or left
was hit. causing a sinking sensation In
my stomach and a feeling of terror
that is Indescribable.
"Sissy" Proved Good Man
Then I saw "Doc" Neuman, a cor
poral whom X and others Had sneered
at as a "sissy" because ho manicured
his nails ant indulged in other evi
dences of effeminacy, leaning well over
the earthwork, rifle in hand, intently
wat.ching a distant clump of cocoanut
palms near tne Bpanlsu trendies, in
a moment a miracle happened. Shame,
disgust and anger nt my own weakness
swept all thoughts of danger away.
I sprang up on the footrest beside
"Doc," astonished nt the calmness of
my own voice as I addressed him:
"See anything, corporal?"
"Keep still and watch that tallest
palm. There's a sharpshooter at the
bottom and I think ono at the top."
Ab he spoke the muzzle or his Krag
slowly raised, he snuggled close to It.
As It spat a llttlo tongua or nre a
Mauser barked and whizzed its way
overhead. A figure tumbled from tho
palm and I was watching the man at
tho bottom drag it tcjvard the Spanish
trench when I felt tho corporal's hand
dragging mo down.
"Get under, there'll be a shower in
a moment." As wo dropped behind the
sandbags, grinning at each other for
obviously different reasons, a storm of
hutlets Hwent over and against the pro
testing barrier, seeking revenge for
the one that fell. I had learned my
third lesson:
Onb day nfler theffiflBeVnf:jitry,

"George," he asked, "If you were In
tho States now and had your dis
charge In your pocket, what would
you rather bo than a soldier?"
I did not answer for n long time
then from Romewhoro back In the re
cesses of tho subconscious mind I dug I
this Idea and expressed It In a dreamy
far-away volco:
"Ed, I'd like to bo a lawyer not
a shyster but a clean-cut lawyer with
his profession nbovo his bank no

with a little piece of ground; a good
wife and a kiddle or two."
Ed leaned back and laughed heart-
ily. I did not. When I bad beard .
tne laea expressed aloud It seomed to
grip me. I kept tho vision before me
until it materialized. That was back
in 1901. I had been to school less

1904 there wero some vacancies in tho
artillery 'corps for sergeants major.
Only Borgennts of the :ine were per

sergeants in my battery did not feel
qualified to take the examination and
they showed no inclination to dlo or
leave tho servlco in my interest.
Uqcs an Unusual Stunt
I put tho facts up to tho post com

from tho shock my audacity caused,
he recommended to tho chief of artil
lery that I bo given tho chance. I
passed, so far ns I know

First Test In State I'olico . inferring to J. K. J. Archibald, Ble-
Our first real test came at Florence , laski said he started to Germany and
when a gang of murderous Italians
barricaded themselves in a house from
which they killed two of our men and
wounded three others. Taking an ac
tive part in that affair I was in the
samo month promoted to lieutenant
and sent to tho Wilkps-Barreo dis
trict. There wo mado a Black Hand
raid that netted us a full wagonload
of weapons and twenty-three pris
oners. The process of elimination
was working and I was sent to
Greensburg, captain of a troop of the
finest body of mounted pollca in tno
United States.
Taking my bride of a few weeks
with me I worked hard to perfect the
discipline and efficiency of n.. troop.
Feeling that I had a greaj: responsi
bility In tho enforcement of tho law,
I began to study tho criminal Btatutes
ot the State. Before I had gone far
in this work the deputy superinten
dent located at tho State Capitol re
signed and I was pror nted t his
place. As soon as I got settled I
began to devote hiy spare time to
prepare for the examination for ad
mission to tho bar ot tho Supremo
Court. For two years I bored Into
Latin, literature, algebra, geometry
and history to meet the academic re
quirements of the preliminary exam
ination after which I had three years
more of Blackstone, statutes and de
cisions to pass tho, final examination.
During theso nvo years I studied until
midnight or later every night. My
patient llttlo wife allowed me full
latitude in my absolute neglect of her
interests. Wo found tlmo to buy a
suburban lot, draw plans and write
tho specifications for the homo we
now live in; and to bring a fine boy
into the world.
I broko down my health with
black coffee and stogies, used to keep
me from falling asleep over my books;
and had my appendix removed as an
unnecessary adjunct to my plans. In
April, 1915, I recoived my certificate
to tho supreme Court of Pe.insylva- '
When the superintendent, who had
been a major In tho National Guard
waa commissioned a lieutenant col
onel after the start of the present war,
the Governor had enough confidence
in me to hand mo the executive
authority of the force.
I came to this country an English
immigrant boy at the ago of six. My
friends say I have been lucky. Per
haps so. but you must pay dear in
self-sacrifice for such luck as I have
However, the going is easy. This
is tho greatest age in the grandest
land of opportunity in tho world. As
fast as a man learns that genius Is
only th ability to dig; that self
glorification Is only another form of
hot-air, wlille service, down-right loyal
service Is tho quintessence of rapid
success, that soon will ho learn that
there are no limits to tho possibilities
of the human mind.
To be conventional in mv conclusion
I ought to attribute all of my success !
to my wire, but I know shabby farm
ers and common day laborers who
love their wives as much its I do mine.
They, like me, Jiavo the incentive,
but they have not come to the reall
ration that a man's friends are in
tho ultimate analysis tho reason for
his success or failure. Acquaint
ances are one thing; fri nds are quite
something else. Hard work, courtesy
and frankness will win the only
friends worth while, and so I have
learned my fourth lesson:

"The fact of on American newspaper
being subsidized can never bo kept
secret, because thero Is no reticence In
this country. It always ends with my
being held responsible for nil tho
articles of nny such newspaper. This
Is particularly undesirable when, as now,
we aro In on electoral campaign of the
bitterest character, which is turning
largely upon foreign policy.
