FRANCE. July 15.? fCorresnond
ence.?What makes an indelible impression
on the newcomer to the battlefront
is the tremendous organization
back of the actual fighting line,
the miles of roadways dotted with
transport of war-food for men and
horses, shells for the guns, ammunition
for rifles and machine-guns and
comforts for the wounded.
The final and most interesting link
in this vast organization Is the operation
of getting the food right up
to the men in the trenches. It usual- i
ly takes place under cover of dark- i
ness when the enemy Is unable to Im- t
pede Its progress as efficintly as with i
the aid of daylight. Night after night i
this goes on. After one recovers from \
surprise at the quietness with which
it is done he is bound to marvel at i
the clock-like precision of the whole ]
operation?dll of which testifies to i
the efficient organization necessary t
In a war like this. t
The first intimation that tlje trans- j
port is preparing to move out to- s
ward the front line is a clattering of f
horse shoes on the cobbles of a f
French farmyard. Then voices call j
out orders, watercarts are filled;
horses are harnessed to the wagons ^
and a few minutes later the whole c
column is standing ready, silent, the r

lly laden wagons as the whole column
moves out toward the trenches. ,
A few miles ahead the ftrst starshells
shoot up and little sudden
pricks ot flame come from the enemy's
guns, then there is soft burs:
of shrapnel followed by the deep
boom of the heavy guns.
The roar Is narrow but wlda
enough for the limbers of other regiments,
cookers, ambulances, army
tervlce corps lorries laden with tools
and trench stores, orderlies on bicycles
and wounded men to pass on
their way further hack of tha liner.
But not a word is heard ss the two
columns pass each other along this

rations moves up closer to the linos J
the star shells and boom of the big *1
guns becomes more distinct. Suddenly
the column halts?shells have
hurst In the road'nr on either side ^
of it a little way ahead. When this
ceases probably for only a few minutes
the word is given to move on
again. The column continues to crawl I
along until it reaches a battered old
building beside the road and within
a stone's throw of the support tronches,.
Here are left the supplies
brought up by this column.
The next sight is a streapi of men
with picks and shovels and immunltion;
a sergeant to see that the rations
for the different companies are
placed in different piles: a post-corporal
