This is a story of the men who form one of the great human slaughter machines of "Europe in Tears." It is a story of how the real human hearts of men, whose chief occupation now is to kill, showed through their eyes as they sang of home and loved ones. A story has been cabled of the "Gesangverein," or choral society, which has been organized by the Germans in "one of the trenches north of Toul to relieve the monot ony of the hours and days. Most of their singing is done in the deep,'black trench. SOLDIERS IN CHOIR LOFT. There is the dense fog, the gray, ghost-1'ke figures of the soldiers; rifles ready for instant use rest across the protecting ridge of earth, pointed to ward the enemy's line only 600 yards away. ,Thc stillness is broken only by the booming of artillery in the distance and then song wells forth from the men whose voicc3 may soon be stilled forever. But today the "Gesangverein" sang in j the old French Church at Tiacourt. The company had just come in for a rest after several days and nights in the trenches. There was a soft dim light , In the old church. The "singing so ciety" of soldiers stood in the choir loft. Other soldiers and officers sat on wooden bench-liko news. Scores of soldiers stood in the aisles. j There was Intense silence, then the musical director raised his baton. "It is the day of the Lord." welled out in rich musical tones. It was sung with tho deepest feeling. As the an them swelled forth a religious fervor shone in the faces of the soldiers. Among those in the pews and standing In the aisles, hands were clasped, heads bowed lips moved in silent prayer. The anthem is ended. There Is a mo ment of Impressive silence and the soldier voices ring out in "Dear father land, my beloved fatherland." Heads are raised, shoulders squared. Patriotic exaltation comes into the faces the love of country for which they are sacrificing their lives. Again the music ceases and once more the leader raises his baton for the next song. It is "Meine Heimat Is An Dem Schoenen Rhein." (My Home Is on the Beautiful Rhine.") Strikes Heart Chord. It sweeps softly through the church. There is a movement among the sol diers. Tho heart-chord has been struck. Chins drop on breasts, faces soften, the patriotic fire in tho eyes disappears be fore a softer, gentler gleam. A French woman, leading two little children by the hand, comes up the aisle from the door and kneels in front of the dark altar. A boldier at the end of the bench leans over and touches the hair of the little girl with his lips. Two great tears roll down tho beard ed cheek of a soldier near by. He is struggling with some great emotion. His arms are partly outstretched as if reaching to clasp some one in them. In his eyes there is the expression of the tnoHt intense longing man ma know the longing for home and lovfd ones. With the bock of his rough hand he hrushes away the tears. "Never, never, will I see my home: j never will I see them again It tells me j .so." he sottly whispers. "Oh, God. pro tect them when I am no more." Tenderly he caresses something that seems to wrap itself around his finger. In the dim light it looks like a lock of hair He raises it to his iips again and again.
