WHETHER YOU t MOSE LEWIS DEPARTMENT STORE The home of Hart Schaffner & Marx clothes SLAUGHTER OF GERMANS IN DRIVE FOR AMU NS (Contiued From First Page) trenches had been dressed In new uniforms, had been made to drink rum and ether so that they would be reckless and in a frame of mind to face any ordeal. The captains had not been trusted with the informa tion that they were being marched to slaughter. At a given time they were to open written orders, and at anoth er given time the heavy guns were to change their range from the first line of British defense to the second, and it was then that the Germans were to make the rush from their trenches to the first line of the Brit ish. To the surprise of the British, it was then that the Germans came in solid mass formation, the same for mation that Napoleon used in his last desperate struggles. Many of the British had been killed in the bar rage, but others were there hanging on with true British grit. As that wave of Germans, a solid mass, came across the land between the British and German trenches, the heavy guns of the British opened on them. They had but to fire. They could not miss the enemy. The Ger mans sank to their death by thous ands before those guns. But the war-m«d managers behind them had planned for just such a slaughter of their own men. With the death struggles of the first wave of Ger mans, came a second, uniforms new, hearts beating fast and brains borne up with the stimulus of rum and ether. They, too, went down before the terrific fire of the same British guns. The third wave of men came and a third wave of men died. Thousands more came in the fourth wave, and were piled dead above the bodies of their comrades. So it went, wave after wave, the German generals determined to make "the kaiser's own battle" a victory by wearing out the British guns with German human flesh. The British gunners actually be came heart-sick with killing the poor beings who marched to their death on the orderet their own cruel gen erals. / When the ninth wave of men had come and died, the cannon in the first line pf British defense became so hot that they The gunner stook off the breech locks and retired to the second line of de fense. On came the tenth wave of Ger mans, there to meet the fate of the nine that bad gone before. On came others, sacrifices to the will of an au tocracy determined to fasten on the rest of the world the same militarism that made these subjects give up their lives. But the German generals had more men to feed into the barrage of the second line of British guns, and fed them; fed them until more British gunners were Bickened by the sight and fired more from duty than hatred —except such hatred that must arise In men with red blood and hearts of human beings for generals who will make such a sacrifice of human life. So human flesh wore down more steel, men paid the toll with their lives until'more British guns became too hot to be fired. Wave after wave and column after column perished be fore the defense after defense. Stal wart men brought from the Russian front, old men forced into service, mere boys In their teens, gave up their live* tp the god of war; mill could not be fired any more. tarism was showing off at its best and its worst. At a terrible cost of life human be ings wore down the last line of Brit ish defense and troops shattered and weary, but still buoyed by remaining effects of the stimulants bore on to the west, even past Albert, and dan gerously close to the coveted goal, Amiens. And there they were when we reached that city on the fifth day of the battle, the day of great slaughter, the day on which It seemed to many that they might succeed, but the very day on which they were stopped in the open. With the effects of the ether and rum gone, weary and worn, the men who had passed trench and cannon and entanglements were brought to a halt, where there were no entreuchments. There they were held, held until reinforcements could come, held by the valiant British un til the brilliant French troops could reach them. Let us pause here for a thought. If the German generals and the German military party will sacrifice their own men as they surely did sacrifice them to gain a point in strategy, what would they do to America and our al lies if they should gain a final victo ry in the war? We should think of this when it comes to aiding our gov ernment and the auxiliary workers in their efforts to carry on the struggle ing a p r ifce tV t0ry '- t0 " right and FARMERS SHOULD PROVIDE STORAGE (By County Agent Sargent) Farmers should provide sufficient Btorage to take care of their entire crop this year. Men who have studied this matter and have looked into the prospects for early movement of the crops from this section, advise the farmers that it will be necessary to hold their crops for a later delivery this year than in previous years, and that now is the time to provide the necessary storage capacity to take care of the entire crop. The argument used in reaching this conclusion is the following: In the past a part of the crops in the Middle West and West has gone west. This year practically all the crops in both sections will go east. The crops in the Middle West will be harvested before the here are ready, will be rushed into service, and will carry the Middle West crops eastward and will be in the East when the crops here are ready to be moved. It will take several weeks for these cars to return In sufficient numbers to handle much of the crop here, and it might be months before many of you will dispose of your grain. It would be contrary to all our instructions to produce and conserve to not take caution in this matter, and provide storage. So farmers take the hint and bo sure that you have sufficient stor 8go capacity for your entire crop.
