Mental Move.
"Wlint do they mean by saying,
'when the spirit moves?' " "It Implies
η mental process. With nay wife, the
spirit moves every time she sees a new
house."—Louisville Courier-Journal.
Germans Use Barbarous
Schemes to Harm Enemy.
Bait· Left . In Evacuated Position·
Prove Disastrous to Tommy, Who
Would Investigate.
"The game of baiting the other fel
low which the German soldiers really
taught the allied troops Is still In
vogue on the western front at the
present time," said α wounded Canadi
an officer who was telling some friends
about the tricks which men piny on
one another in trench warfare.
" 'Don't fool with the enemies' evao
uated positions, especially the dugouts,
until you have experimented with wine
bottles, Jewelry, pictures and other
trinkets at α respectable distance,' Is
the first order given to advance par
ties. When the Germans drew back to
the Hlndenburg line In France they
plundered and carried off all kinds of
loot. Now the finest place for a crowd
of Tommies or poilus to capture 1·
one of the dngouts recently Inhabited
by German officers.
"Perhaps Tommy spots a pile of Jew
elry on an Innocent appearing table.
Well, let Tommy rush to grab It and In a
second the place Is blown to atoms and
all hands have gone 'bllghty' for hav
ing grabbed the bait. This game of
connecting fuses with gold chains, wine
bottles and portraits has been costing
bombing squads a large toll In losses.
The coveted goods are so fixed by the
Germans that when Tommy and the
gang have pounced upon them they
touch off the detonator of an Infernal
machine."
The Canadian told how 12 men who
had entered a dugout In the German
trenches formerly occupied by some
officers had their eyes on several oil
paintings. The non-commissioned of
ficer who was with them, having wlfc·
nessed the annihilation of men who
had been caught by the bait in other
cases, ordered the men out of the place
and then fired a shot at one of tha
paintings. In response to the shot
there followed an explosion which de
molished the dugout.
The allied troops are dally being
taught to keep their hands off all likely
souvenirs when they occupy new po
sitions. Even the business of search
ing wounded prisoners Is being con
ducted In a gingerly manner by Tom
my. The game of tricking the other
fellow has been a very serious matter
on the western front, according to thl»
officer, chiefly because the German sol
dier does not hesitate at the most
atrocious and barbarous of schemes to
work harm to the enemy. On certain
occasions German soldlçrs have feigned
to be wounded and while men swept
past them have been guilty of sniping.
The World Do Move.
An old fashioned Lawrence man who
has always worn detached cuffs wai
congratulated the other day by a
young sport who thought the old man
bad started a new fashion.—Κ ansa·
VHy Star.
Always a Possibility.
"If I were η young man again," said
a mechanic in middle life, "I would go
to the farm and become Independent,
and nothing could hold me." Is every
young man sure he won't be saying the
same thing some day?—St. Louis Pio
neer Press.
