Impetuous Yankee Soldier!

on his father's farm in a far western
state. It was dawn of July 4, and
these two, with many others from
Australia and America, were just
pushing out across the still mist-1

along the Somme valley toward the |
strongholds of the Germans, whom
they were that day to vanquish in J

perience with a barrage fire.
"That barrige," continued the
Australian as he cleared a shell hole I
with a flying leap, landing beside his
companion, " that barrage ain't no
blinging bar to be leaned against,
youngster." O ff on their right other
men from the United States were |
eagerly pressing forward with rifles
grasped tensley and faces expectant,
Out ahead there somewher| they
were to have their initiation into real
warfare. They did not know exactly
what it would be like, but they were
running to it with an impetuous dis
regard for the death that might be |
waiting for them.
Suddenly, one boy who had pushed |
ahead of the others, staggered back
clutching at one arm which hung
helpless by his side. "I was just
telling you so!" muttered the Aus
mered the other with a catch in his
voice. It was the first time he had
ever seen a man hit in battle and
this was one of his own pals. "Too
bad, but those things happen," re
marked the veteran, tersely, "he can
be glad he ain't dead. You fellows
have got to learn not to charge'into
a barrage. It don't help to lick the
boche. I know how you feel—you
want to get-at 'em, but there's time, |
old sgn, there's time for it."
The Amrican fell in beside the |
Australian and pushed ahead
thoughtfully. He had had his first
vital lesson in warfare as it is waged
todav. He must not let his eager
ness carry him ahead too fast so that
he would get caught in that crashing
line of steel. Tom had just learned
by burning his fingers that fire was'
hot and other American boys were

Into Storm of Bullets
The Australian and the American
pushed forward thru the lightning
gloom. From somewhere far ahead
the erman machine guns began their
barking and bullets came singing.
The western boy ducked sharply as
a screaming pellet swished past his
ear. "You dodged that one all
right, good work, Yank, good work,"
the veteran said with a grin: "You
fellows are mighty quick."
The American blushed under his
tan and smiled ruefully, "Oh, we
are good, all right, Shorty!" he re
plied thru clenched teeth.
The bullets kept coming in waves,
but the American did not dodge
On they went down the sheil-torn I
slope that led to the Hamel wood.
They had encountered no enemy as |
yet, but they were in the zone of
barbed wire and that tore their legs
cruelly at times as they pushed
thru the network of sharp spikes,
Then came the first erman trench
defence and in a runway were sev
eral gray coats firing with rifles at |
the advancing troops.
"Hit them, Yank! at g!" yelled I
the Australian, and he hurled him- |
There was no necessity to urge the |
Yankee. He was down among the
ermans like a wliilwind, and then
there began a furious lunging and
parrying with the bayonets. There |
were four Germans in that pit, great
strapping fellows with plenty of
fight in them. The American was
in a battle rage and he fought fur- |
lously, but with the same headwork
that characterized his veteran com
rade's methods. It was all over in |
a moment and the enemy lay crum
self over the parapet.
pled in the ditch. The American had
accounted for two of them; he had
held his own.
Good fellow, \ank, you certainly
can fight!" the Australian said, "but
hell man, don't never stab another
boche thru the chest. You'll bust
your steel and there'll be the devil
in J* 16 throat!"
Out of the Hamel wood the Ger
mans were maintaining a wicked fire
from their machine guns, but there
was no slackening of the advance of
the Australian or the American.
They surged forward with heads
down and teeth set.
Silencing Machine Gun
Just a little distance ahead was a
machine gun nest and a bullet from
that direction grazed the American's
cheek. It angered him. He had had
his baptism of fire; he had killed,
and now there was no stopping him.
He deliberately charged the nest
and hurled a bomb among the gray
coats. Another and still another
hand grenade went spinning into
the midst of the enemy with the
precision of abaseball thrown by an
expert. Little spouts of earth shot
up and the rapid flrer was silenced.
Two Germans appeared from the
nearby cover with their hands held
high. "Kamerade!" they cried.
The American whirled and fixed
"No, Yank, no!" the Australian
shouted. "The blighters are trying
to surrender. Let 'em alone. We
will turn 'em o^ftr to be sent back.
Pretty creatures, ain't they, these
cussed sausage eaters!"
Battles Gallantly and Grimley
So the allied pair continued on
I thelr adventurous journey, and the
story of the early moments of their
fighting was the same as that at
the end. They fought gallantly and
grimly, side by side; they killed and
they also took prisoners, and al
ways the American boy did his share
of the bitter work. It was his first
| journey into the land of death v but
| he did not flinch. They reached
their objective a mile and a half
from the starting point, and on their

CHICAGO.—Despite scattered re

10 its 1918 wheat crop is sufficient
to cause apprehension in Berlin.
From the middle west came reports
that half the wheat has been cut.
A record Kansas farm boasts a yield
of forty-nine bushels to the acre and
the state's per acre average, it is
claimed will be between twenty and
twenty-eight bushels, Nebraska, split
in half by the Platte river has fin

The grain is just beginning to top
ple before the sickle in the northern
half. The Ne braska yield is uneven,
top being thirty-five bushels.
The northwestern wheat states re
port crop conditions good. If there
is a shortage it will be labor, not
wheat. Over the line in Canada
there had been fear of a short crop
due to lack of rain. Now Manitoba
and Saskatchewan expect the best
crop in three years.
The western Canadian contribu
tion to the "victory crop" is esti
mated at 275,000,000 bushels. The
car shortage of last year is not ex
pected to be repeated this year.
Grain cars numbering 4000 are being
held at sidings in the grain belt
ready to begin movement when
threshing is completed.
Thirty per cent of the winter
wheat crop has been harvested in
Iowa with an average yield of 15.25
bushels per acre. Slow and uneven
ripening is blamed for the compara
tively light yield.
Harvesting of oats in Iowa will
begin next week, with estimates of
an average per acre yield of twenty
bushels. Corn in Iowa is three weeks
