Rastern Prance, Sept. 16 (By mail) —If you need a fad and would like to become a "collector" here is a free suggestion: Start a collection of trin kets made t\y French troopers on the firing line. Starting with finger rlngB in the spring there are a few things the war riors are not making between bayonet charges and dodging big shells. Alu minum, brass, copper and nickel in the Gerinan shells hurled at the French, usually are the "raw materi als." Bullets, empty shells, shell clips, coins, buttons, insignia» buckles, belts, hand grenades, also are used. The most popular curio is the alu minum ring. Scarcely a soldier Is without at least one. These are made by cutting oft a cross-section of the aluminum fuse-tubing inside German shells and whittling or filing it to de sired design. These are numerous and some are of beautiful workmanship, engraved with professional skill. Some of the soldiers are, of course, Jewelers. A popular design is the signet with a. crown, cut from the Prussian Guard's brass button, inset. These rings are much sought. Others are serpents wearing the spiked German helmet, the French War Cross in copper inset, the Cross of Lorraine, th® thistle of Alsace, etc. Inkstands made from hand gren ades with crossed cartridges as pen racks and mounted on a shell frag ment nro fashioned, while Inkstands made from the time-fuse cap of the famous soixante quinze shells are nif ty souvenirs for women at home. Cartridges with the bases Joined, holding a pencil in one end and a pen in the other and pen-rac.ks made sim ply of American "special" barbed wire cut from entanglements aro quite au fait, as fashion writers at homo say. One of the nicest articles is a breakfast gong made of the brass bases of shells of large calibre. Sus- ' pended on a woolen cord, like bells, and tapped, they give forth a very pleasant tone. ' Watch fobs arc made of leather from German officers' belts with a gold-plated button for fob or a bob made of bronze, brass, nickel, or alu minum, any desired shape. Aeroplanes are made of German cartridge-clips with pfennigs for wheels. Beer mugs in miniature are made of cartridge shells, and a dandy paperweight is fashioned of shell fuses or hand grenades with a grape laden vine growing out of the orifices. The vines are made of telephone wires, the grapes from shrapnel bul lets. From the mud of the trenches sol-' dler-sculptors are making all sorts of statuettes, humorous and serious. The busts of Joffre and Polncalre, minia ture Venuses and Mercuries, and com ic crown-princes and kaisers are fav orites. Dainty picks, shovels, rifles, cannon, and the like are made, of brass or other metal. They are polished and finished to a point where any jeweler might handle them with pride. There is no limit to these "Made In the Trenches" articles. The tools vary much as do the objects. Some of the men have a pocket-knife. Most, however, have managed to get hold of it least a file and a piece of emery :loth. Sometimes, Instead of merely filing ι section of aluminum the metal Is nolded after melting. The original •lngs were made this way: A raw jotato was cut in half and a mold of he desired object made. Then the wo halves were put together and the nolten metal poured into the strange nould through an aperture. From his crude beginning some of the men lave developed complicated arrange ants whereby two or three metals ire combined to form all sorts of mtterns, one upon another. The soldier isn't trying to make noney with these things. It is rare y he will part with the proofs of his ngenuity. Ho makes them in his eistiro time between battles or watch ng at loopholes on the lips of the renches. The work occupies his mind and Dismissed envoy Expeots Declaration if Arm· Export· Contimro.
