Interesting Description of Artillery Work on Battle Line—Battery Has Unique Record on Sev eral Different Fronts. Berlin.—A picture of a battery which has fought in several different battle fronts is given by a writer the Vossische Zeitung. He says: "Our position on the plateau been furiously bombarded through night by the Italian artillery. were able to locate most of the bat terles, but there was one which kept up an Incessant fire until dawn, which greatly puzzled us. "The sun was rising behind the mist in the Adriatic, which wo could plain ly see from our elevation. I had just been awakened by a tremendous roar, wrapped my blanket about me and came forth to see what it all meant. Captain Laytos was already peering through his telescope. His high coat collar was turned up to protect his throat and ears from the cold, and his hands were buried deep in his pock ets. Captain Laytos is a Hungarian artillery man, thirty years of age; has been twice wounded, and has just been granted a six-weeks' leave, but he refuses to leave his battery. He an ideal soldier, his chest Is covered with decorations and he now com mands the battery. "He comes down from his position at the telescope and carefully studies the map. He lights a cigarette and again mounts his high chair in front of the telescope. He calls Prentelli, wh® knows the location of every stone within a radius of twenty kilometers, and asks about the house. It stands about one hundred meters to the left, near the cross roads, and was paint . ed white a few months ago. " 'Look through the glass and tell me If you see anything strange about it,' said the captain. "It is not all white; here and there it Is marked by what appear like dark spots.' " 'Precisely,' said the captain. 'That Is where this battery Is located. The Italians have placed their guns ln the rooms of that house. But we'll fix them.' "Captain Laytos and Lieutenant Wehler study the map, figuring out the distance. The elevation and angle are given over the telescope wire. The captain hands me a cigar. '"You have time to light a cigar,* he says, 'before we fire. We shall fire ln thirty-five seconds. Take a look through the glass and see the result.' "Captain Laytos takes out his watch and begins to count the seconds as I look through the telescope. I see the white house bathed in the jng sunshine, and I see also on the road leading to it a wagon creeping along. I feel like crying out to the wagon party to get under cover, and almost simultaneously I hope that our shells will get them. The captain ls at his post looking through the tele scope next to mine. I hear the order given to fire and at once there is a roar that shakes the whole mountain. "'We have hit the mark!' shouts the captain. "Almost a minute elapses before the smoke disappears. 1 look again through the glass. The white house ls gone; all I can see ls a hole in the earth where It stood and the bare trunks of a few trees still standing. " 'That was good work,' said the captain, handing me a cigarette. 'It was the 1,200th shot of Our Richard, as we call this battery, so named after Lieut. Richard Karner, who fell ln bat tle a few weeks ago. This same bat tery was at Liege, at Antwerp, in France and I don't know where else. Ask Bauer.' "Bauer, a sturdy young chap, tanned by the sun, heard his name mentioned and came forward. " 'Again, I do not see you wearing your Iron Cross and your medals.' " 'Sorry, captain, but I haven't enough room for them.' "And later, when the enemy ceased their firing, I sat down with Bauer, who was in Belgium, France, Poland Galicia, Serbia, and Is now here the Italian front and had him tell the story of Our Richard." morn on me Preparing for Peace Congress.
