"I wonder whether London will ever bo tho same happy, thoughtless city It wns In (he old dnya," said n Ilritlsli army captain one dny as our train roll ed through the parklllie country with the tiny green Holds, winding lanes nnd thatched stone houses. Ills name was famous wherever the union Jack waves, just as arc those of Matbewsou, Wngucr nnd Cobb under the Stars mill Htrlpes, for he wus one of England's famous cricketers nnd had played In every part of the globe where tho Ilritlsli gnuic has followers. .Inst ns he had played for the national hon or on the field of sport, ho was lighting for It on the field of battle. "It's the same 'buckle up nnd fnce the ball. for British spirit never dies, but the M:illcs, the laughter and the music are gone," was the way ho phrased It.

TUMULTY GIVES GOOD ADVICE On the Othor Hand One Ccrii From a Family of Fightiry Insn and Will Go to Any Extreme to Get into the Army Some Humcr rtehevtj the Tension at Natloml Capital. Washington, worried by war and weather, paclllsts and piohll'lllonl-ts, contractors and conscripts, sl.ickvi nnd suffragists, aviators ntul iili.rnilsts, food nnd tlrearms, loans and llulilllllC!, taxation and talk, the cabinet and fon gross, has not enjoyed n good laugh In n long time, or, rnther, felt In the mood of Indulging lu one. Hero and there, however, the development of war preparations has brought t the surface incidents that show that Awrlcni hu mor is not to lie suppressed, even by grim visage I wat. There Is, for Instance, the cje of young Mr. X., who took h! roubles to the White House nnd related them al most tearfully to Mr. Tumulty. Hie sec retary to the president, "I am n slacker, Mr. Tumulty, and I Just can't help It," said young Mr. X. "I enn't light, nnd I know it. It Isn't hero," pointing to his heart. "I wouldn't hold n gun in hand nnd sbnot n man, nnd I would run like the dickens If uny. body shot at mo. If they grab uie nnd put mo In u troi'.ch I will Just die, Hint's nil there is to It.' Hat Been Di-aftrd. "Have you been drafted ':' asked the president's secretary, with solicitude. "Yes," replied the honest slacker, "nnd I've got a feeling that they're going to nail mo." "Oh, t wouldn't be (oo sure about that," said Mr. Tumulty consollugly. "You look to me to be n little bit under the prescribed height." "No; that's where my hnrd luck comes ngaln." said young Mr. X. dole fully. "I'm Just a half Inch over." "Oh, well, they'll find somcthlug the matter with you," rcjssured Mr. Tumul ty. "How about your general health i" "Not a chance.'' mournfully said the honest slacker, wiping perspiration from his brow. "My health Is fine. Honest, Mr. Tumulty, there nln't a thing tho matter with mo except I am afraid. I tell you 1 can't Hght. I wake up in the middle of tho ulght and see myself under a pile of dead men, with tho cannon lilnttlng all around nnd every bullet coming my way. It Isn't that I don't want to bo n soldier, but I Just haven't got the goods; that's nil." "Well, what do you want me to do?" asked Mr. Tumulty. "I don't know. I just want you to get me out of It some way. I thought maybe you could drop 'em a note tell ing 'em to slick mo in some place, counting cans of beans or signalling up In the Itocky mountains or something like that so long as It's as far away from the firing line as possible. I just can't fight and I know It." Mr. Tumulty's Advice. "Well, I'll tell you what .Von do," ad vised Hie lireshlent's secretary. "Just write a frank statement f your c.ice1 to the exemption board of your district J and they'll let you off." j "Xo; 1 don't want to do that." rercon-i strated young Mr. X. "Ilce.iusc If I do all the l.oys and girls 1 know will get on and hand me something worse than the kaiser's bullets. 1 thought! maybe you had a place around here, handy that I could 1111. How about, running errands for the piosldent or doing something like that, where I'd bo safe';" The ease of young Mr. F. of an Ohio town furnishes n study hi military psychology. He applied for ndmlsslon to the training camp for reserve offi cers "because ho looked well lu uni form" and some of his girl friends "dared lilm to get Into the army." Ho got lu and is in n fair way of being promoted to the grade of tirst lietiten .int. Less than a mouth's discipline, how ever, has taken all the martial spirit out of hhn, mid for three weeks he has been pleading to olllclnls of the govern ment by telegraph and letter for per mission to quit The report of his su perior declares that he Is Htted lu ev ery way to bo a suitable ollicer, nnd the Indications are that he will contluuo to "look well lu a uniform." The case of Mr. K who comes from a "family of lighting Irish," shows that he has Inherited the spirit of his tribe. Starting nearly four months ago. young Mr. IC, whoso home Is lu Massachu setts, has boon turned down by the ma rine corps, the aruiy officers' reserve corps, the aviation sections of hoth the army ami navy, the signal corps, the quarterni!isler'.s division, the Ited Cross and a college hospital unit, Tho chief objections to tho lighting Iris in tiro that one of his lungs Is had, his d-jlit is not good, hu has vnrl cose veins and has hardening of tho arteries. All this has been made quite clear to young Mr. K. by Impartial nied leal examiners. Hut, bless your heart, it hasn't discouraged him tho least hit, and he' has been tho soul of op timism, determined to "boat my way Into the game soino way," Ho H will ing to go anywhere, tight anybody, so long as he Is not compelled to servo In t Ilrltlsh leglment, so strong la tho an ileut prejudlco of his clan.
