OLZVXB OWJUXkwit Two sturdy little inwrtiM* h tfcoata were discuastaff th* CMMR and His omnipotent i>o?rer. "God made everythlncla thll-XMaT* declared Betty. i. "He did?" queried the annTlef mt the two, as wondering' eyes |lnNl about to witness the perfection of tile Lord's handiwork. ?; "Yes, and the Lord made all people on this earth." proclaimed the first. "Now I know you're wron*," shouted the tiny one?Pigeon by nickname. "He didn't make the German*. Be just couldn't. He's too sooA." -- Next to the gun In ruardinr mer chant vessels against the submariae. the zigzag course of travel and the depth charge are the most effective, in the order named. ? Sometimes soldiers have ""hunched" which come true, and oftentimes vic tory is attached to the most insig nificant things. This Is illustrated by the soldier story of a young British officer, who said: "Before going in I was carrying a rough stick cut from a hedge, which I intended to throw away in exchange for the more serviceable weapon, the rifle: but the company sergeant major approached me with a sheepish smile. " "Excuse me, sir,' he said, "but the men feel that the company is going to come well through it as long as you hold on to your stick.' "So I have the stick yet. And I did seem to have extraordinary luck. Be sides several shrapnel grazes, I brought back a battered steel helmet on which a boche machine gun from close range had played an uncomfort able tattoo. Perhaps, after all. "there are more things in heaven and earth' " Not only have allied armies special salvage corps to clear up battlefields and reduce waste of all kinds to ? minimum, but each Individual soldier is impressed with the duty of con servation in all directions. One dtv4? sion saved about $500,000 worth of munitions and explosives, another saved $20,000 worth of kits and cloth ing and still another collected about $20,000 worth of rifles and bayonets. Many hideous devices are used by the Germans to slay allied soldiers^ who are pursuing them. Generally speaking, more are to be found in the open than in trenches, dugouts or.for tified points. Out in the open there are death traps by the hundred, waiting for guileless victims. Iron spikes are buried beneath the surface of the ground to maim or kill both men and horses. Wolf and bear traps are hid den along roadways and communica tion trenches: and wide and deep holes are dug in roads and paths, and bridged over so carefully that only close investigation will show that the ground is not solid. The pressure of * foot, however, Is sufficient to precipi tate the unwary to the bottom of the pit. where he is impaled on sharp pointed steel stakes. Women have largely manned the tractors which during the course of the year have done such good work in community plowing in England. The greatest agricultural yield for decades is partially due to their speedy and effective work. An Inter, esting sidelight is given by a young woman, who said, in discussing her work: "You feel that all is going well to day as you climb into the seat, set the plow In the furrow, release the clutch, open the throttle and sail mer rily along. You feel, too, a thrill of patriotism as the flags on the tractor I fly in the breeze, bearing the words I County Champion and First in the | Unit and row upon row of nice, even | furrows appear. It is then that you feel that it is good to be a tractor driver and to be doing your bit to ward producing more food. "The day is perfect: an aeroplane hovers low overhead, performing va rious evolutions which you would like to watch, but a moment's inattention would mean a wobbly furrow, and so you keep your eyes fixed upon the ground. "A big toad appears in your path, and you throttle down while he very sensibly flops across into safety. You open out only to throttle down once more as a little mouse scuttles along the furrow ahead. He. however, is not so wise as the toad, as he persists In scurrying ahead of you. but you open wide again as he disappears down a hole." AGRICULTURE BILL GOES OVER ELECTION RECESS It was practically decided yesterday by those in charge that the emergency Agricultural appropriation bill, with its war time prohibition rider and the rent-profiteering rider, will go over until- after election. Senator Hoke Smith, who is in charge of the confer ence report in the Senate, probably will not bring it up when the Senate meets tomorrow, which is the last day before the adjournment for the elec tion period.
