"Oh, Mr. Hero. I'm so glad to r-
you saftly back from the war. Pit
risht down and tell nie ail about It.
I'm awfully Interested. Wasn't It sim
ply terrible over there? And did you
really live In the trenches fur we?ks
at a time with shot and shell scream
ing all around you? I don't see how
you could stand It. Were you ever hit
by one of those forty-two centimeter
guns? I mean by the bullet, of course;
not by the gun. But. then, of course,
you weren't, or you'd have your arm
tn a sling or something. Who do you
think Is going to win? I suppose I
shouldn't ask you that, though. You
soldiers are not allowed to tell mili
tary secrets, are you? Did you ever
really kill a man yourself, or don't
you know? My uncle, who was In the
Spanish war, cays you never can tell
whether it's your bullet or somebody
else's that hits the enemy. I Bhould
think that would be awfully annoying
Not that you want to know that you'd
killed a man, but still you'd like to
know whether you're wasting your am
munition or not Oh, must you go so
soon? I wish you could stay longer.
I've been so Interested R hearing your
aiveutures. Call again soon, won't
you, Good-by."
