Baroness Von Hutten Teaching
French to English Soldiers
H.v II AY HICK CHURCH
London, October 10.—(Special.)—"Rooted
and spurred, with a heavy stride," like
Paul Revere, as described by the poet,
and looking Intensely martial In a brand
new khaki uniform, Charles G. D. Rob
erts, whose novels and stories of wild
life are famous on both sides of the At
lantic, strode out of my office, some 15
minutes ago, on his way to play his part,
whatever it may prove to he, in tlie great
world drama of war that is holding the
boards today.
Roberts, who is a Canadian by birth
and, as lie says, "an old backwoodsman,"
Is a member, it appears, of the renowned
Legion of Frontiersmen, whose services
have just been accepted by the British
war office, having joined Its ranks at
the outbreak of the war. Now. with a
score or more of his fellow frontiersmen,
he lias been ordered off to Shrewsbury,
where there is a big cavalry concentra
tion camp, and where they expect to bi
employed, during the next few weeks, In
breaking in the raw mounts. After that,
In all probability, they will be off to
France.
After mail!' years of successful author
ship In America, Roberts, who Is just 6rt,
came over here In 1907, with the Idea,
lie says, of extending ills public. Intend
ing to stay a year, ho has remained ever
since, like a lot of ills fellow countrymen,
and a close friendship exist id between
him and another literary exile, the late
T. VV. Hanshew, author of "Cleek,” who
died last spring. Hanshew's literary
daughter, Hazel Phillips Hanshew, was
married last week, by the way, and both
Roberts and another of Hanshew’s Amer
ican pals, Roy Norton, of "Vanishing
Fleets" fume, attended the ceremony.
Has Lived in France
Roberta has lived In both France and
Germany, as well as in England, having
spent nearly a year In Munich nnd known
intimately many Bavarian officers whom
he descrioes as "line fellows '’ They one
anc' all, he says, stigmatized the Prus
sians us "brutes," a feeling, indeed, which
lie found universal In southern Germany.
1 asked the author of "Wild Lives’’ how
long It was since he had sat a horse and
he remarked, with a rueful tmile, tiiat he
expected to eat this meals from the man
telpiece for sometime to come. He looked
uncommonly serviceable as he sat tapping
his leathern pnttlcH with his cavalry
whip, but was guile modest about his
future actlvties. "t am just going to
do what 1 can,” he said, "with the uni
versal* unboastful spirit of these sons of
the empire, many of them, like him. be
ginning to go grey. His Income from
his writings must be something hand
some. That, needless to say. lie is sacri
ficing, for how long lie has no idea.
We had a laugh, by the by, over his
three Initials, which he says, few peo
ple ever get in their corect order,
The rule for doing so, lie says, is to
remember what a fine swear that
Charles G. D. makes.
Morrison Looks for Spies
Arthur Morrison, who gave us "The
Child of Jingo," "Tales of Menu
Streets" and a lot of other famous nov
els, und who Is almost as distinguished
an a writer and general authority on
Oriental art. Is the latest British au
thor, who being beyond the age limit
for service In the field, has taken on
the by no means light or unhazardous
duties of that new arm of the police
fotce, the speclul constable.
Robert Hlckens has been one for some
time and so has Charles Garvlce, nnd
neither is finding anything like n snap.
These special constables, n regular ar
my of whom the blng employed and
" ho. ol’ course, get no pay whatever,
are chiefly used In guarding such vul
nerable points as railroad bridges, etc.,
and whereas the German emissaries
whoso machinations are feared are
likely to be armed, the speclul con
stables are not supposed to carry so
much as a cap-pistol, though I believe
a few of them actually have good,
honest "barkers" concealed somewhere
about their persons. They relieve one

are quit© a number of places around
Enfield way where dynamite Is stored,
and the literary sergeant Morrison is
keeping his weather eye upon them.
His duties, by the bye, must remind
him somewhat of his own tales of
"Martin Hewitt, Investigator," which
were not such a long way behind the
"Sherlock Holmes" stories. Before ho
began writing he was secretary to u
London society whose work lies chief
ly among the submerged tenth and his
duties brought him into close contact
with the shabbiest, darkest side of city
life, so that he writes of those who
dwell therein with intimate knowledge.
Teaching English Soldiers French
Among the literary women who are
"helping," as the phrase goes, with all
their might and main, are Mrs. Flora An
nie Steel, Baroness Von Hutton and
Madame Elsa d’Esterre. Mrs. Steel, in
the intervals of work in the Women’s
Emergency corps, is denouncing the
"slackers" in characteristically vigorous
terms. Women’s work in war times, she
declares, Is the work that some men arte
doing and ought not to do. "Men, today,"
she says, "have no business to be In
