Fired hy the sinking of tlio I.usitanln, with tlio loss of American lives, Arthur Guy ICinpcy. on American living In Jersey City. rocs to Englnnd nnd enlists ns a private In the British nrmy. After a short experience ns a recruiting ollicer In London, he Is sent to train ing quartern In France, where he first hears the sound of his Rims nnd makes the acquaintance of "cooties." After a hrlef period of training Kmpey's company Is sent Inlo the front-line trenches, where he takes his first turn on the flrc step while the bullets whiz overhead. Empey learns, as comrade falls, that death lurks always In the trenches. CHAPTER X Continued. We had a sergeant In our hnttnlion earned Warren. He was on duty with his platoon in the fire, trench one after noon when orders came up from the rear that he had been granted seven luys' leave for Blighty, and would be relieved at five o'clock to proceed to England. lie was tickled to death nt these welcome tidings nnd regaled his more or less envious mates beside him on the fire step with the good times In store for him. lie figured It out that In two days' time he would nrrlve at Waterloo station, London, and then even days' bliss! At about five minutes to five he utarted to fidget with his rifle, and then suddenly springing up on the fire step with a muttered, "I'll send over n couple of souvenirs to Fritz so that he'll miss me when I leave," he stuck his rille over the top nnd fired two shots when "crack" went a bullet nnd he tuinoled off the step, fell Into the mud at the bottom of the trench, and lay still In a huddled heap with a bullet hole in his forehead. At about the time he expected to ar rive at Waterloo station he was laid to rest in a little cemetery behind the lines. lie had gone to Blighty. In the trenches one can never toll It is not safe to plan very far ahead. After "stand down" the men sit on the fire step or repair to their respec tive dugouts and wait for the "rum is ue" to materialize. Immediately fol lowing the rum comes breakfast, brought up from the rear. Sleeping Is then In order unless some special work turns up. Around 12:30 dinner shows up. ,r"en this is eaten the men try to amuse themselves until "tea appears tt about four o'clock, then "stand to" and they carry on as before. While In rest billets Tommy gets tip about six in the morning, washes up, answers roll call. Is Inspected by his platoon officer, nnd has breakfast. At 8:4j he parades (drills) with his com Iiany or goes on fatigue according to the orders which have been read out by the orderly sergeant the night pre vious. Between 11 :30 nnd noon he Is dis missed, has his dinner and is "on his own" for the remainder of the day, unless he has clicked for a digging or working party, and so it goes on from day to day. always "looping the loop" and looking forward to peace and Blighty. Sometimes, while engaged In a "cootie" hunt, you think. Strange to ay. but it is a fact, while Tommy Is searching his shirt serious thoughts come to him. Many a time, when per forming this operation, I hnve tried to figure out the outcome of the war and what will happen to me. My thoughts generally ran In this channel : Will I emerge safely from the next attack? If I do will I skin through the following one, nnd so on? While your tnlnd Is wandering Into the future It Is likely to be rudely brought to earth by a Tommy Interrupting with, "What's good for rheumatism?" Then you have something else to think of. Will you come out of this var crippled nnd tied into knots with rheumatism, caused by the wet nnd mud of trenches and dugouts? Tou give it up as a bad Job and generally saunter over to the nenrest estamlnet to drown your moody forebodings In a glass of sickening French beer or to try your luck nt the nlways present game of "house." You can henr the sing-song voice of a Tommy droning out the numbers ns he extracts the little squares of cardboard from the bag between his feet. CHAPTER XI. Over the Top. On my second trip to the trenches our officer was making his rounds of Inspection, nnd we received the cheer ful news that at four In the morning ve were to go over the top nnd take ! the German front-line trench. My heart turned to lead. Then the officer car ried on with his Instructions. To the best of my memory I recall them as follows : "At eleven a wiring party will 0 out In front nnd cut lanes through our barbed wire for the passage of troops In the morning. At two o'clock our artillery will open up with nn In tense bombardment, which will last un til four. Upon the lifting of the bar rage the first of the three waves will go over." Then he left. Some of the Tommies, first getting permission from the sergeant, went into the machine gunners' dugout and wrote letters home, saying that In the morning they were going over the top, and also that it the letters reached their destlnntlon ft would mean that the writer had been killed. These letters were turned over to the captain with Instructions to mall name In the event of the writer's being , killed. Some of the men made out their wills In their pay books, under the caption, "Will and Last Testa went." Then the nerve-racking watt com menced, Kvery now and then I would plane nt the dial t my wrist watch and wns surprised to see how fast the minutes passed by. About five minutes to two I got nervous waiting for our guns to open up. I could not tuke my eyes from my watch. I crouched against the parapet nnd strained my muscles In a deathlike grip upon my rifle. As the hnnds on my . watch showed two o'clock a blinding red flare lighted up the sky In our rear, the thunder. Intermixed with n sharp, whis- tllng sound In the air over our heads. The shells from our guns were speed' Ing on their way toward th- German lines. With one accord the mi sprang up on the fire step and looked over the top In the direction of the Herman trenches. A line of bursting shells lighted un No Man's Land. The din wns terrific nnd the ground trem bled. Then, high above our heads we could hear a sighing moan. Our big boys behind the line had opened up and 0.2's and 15-Inch shells commenced dropping Into the German lines. The flash of the guns behind the lines, the scream of the shells through the air, nnd the flare of them, bursting, was a spectacle that put Tain's greatest dis play into the shade. The constant pup, pup, of German mnchine guns and an occasional rattle of rifle firing gave me the Impression of a huge audience applauding the work of the batteries. Our lS-pounders were destroying the Gorman barbed wire, while the heavier stuff was demolishing their trenches nnd bashing In dugouts or funk holes. Thun Fritz got busy. Their shells went screaming over head, aimed in the direction of the flares from our batteries. Trench mor tars started dropping "Minnies" in our front line. We clicked several ens ualtles. Then they suddenly ceased, Our artillery hud taped or silenced them. During the bombardment you could almost read n newspaper In our trench Sometimes In the flare of a shell-burst n man's body would be silhouetted against the parados of the trench and It appeared like n huge monster. You could hardly hear yourself think. When an order wn3 to be pnssed down the trench you had to yoll It, using your hnnds ns a funnel into the ear of the man sitting next to you on the fire step. In nbout twenty minutes a generous rum Issue was doled out. After drink ing the rum, which tasted like varnish and sect a shudder through your frame, you wondered why they made you wait until the lifting of the bar rage before going over. At ten min utes to four word was passed down, "Ten minutes to go!" Ten minutes to live! We were shivering all over. My legs felt ns If they were asleep, Then word was passed down: "First wave get on nnd neur the scnling lad ders." These were small wooden ladders which we had placed against the para pet to enable us to go over the top on the lifting of the barrage. "Ladders of death" we called them, and veritably they were, Before a charge Tommy is the po litest of men. There Is never any push ing or crowding to be first up these ladders. We crouched around the base of the ladders waiting for the word to go over. I was sick nnd faint, nnd wns puffing away nt an unllghted fag. Then came the word, "Three minutes to go; upon the lifting of the bnrrage and on the blast of the whistles, 'Over the top with the best o' luck and give them hell." The famous phras of the western front. The Jonah phrase of the western front. To Tommy It means If you are lucky enough to come hack you will be minus nn arm or a leg. Tommy hntes to be wished the best of luck; so, when pence is de clared, If It ever Is, and you meet n Tommy on the street, Just wish him the best of luck nnd duck the brick that follows. I glanced again at my wrist watch. We all wore them and you could hardly call us "sissies" for doing so. It was a minute to four. I could see the hand move to the twelve, then a dead sl- ence. It Hurt. Hiveryoue looked up to see what had happened, but not for long. .Sharp whistle blasts rang out along the trench, and with a cheer the men scrambled up the ladders. The bullets were cracking overhead, and occasionally a machine gun would rip and tear the top of the sandbag para pet. How I got up that ladder I will never know. The first ten feet out In front wns ngony. Then we passed through Innes In our barbed wire. I knew I was running, but could feel no motion below the waist. Patches on the ground seemed to float to the rear as If I were on a treadmill and scen ery was rushing past me. The Ger mans had put a barrage of shrapnel ncross No Man's Land, and you could hear the pieces slap the ground about you. After I had passed our barbed wire nnd (rotten Into No Man's Land a Tommy about fifteen feet to my right front turned around and looking In my direction, put Us hand to his mouth and yelled something which I could not make out on account of the noise from the bursting shells. Then he. conghed. stumbled, pitched forward nnd lay still. Ills body soeracd to float to the rear of me. I could hear sharp cracks in the air about me. Those were caused by passing rifle bullets. Frequently, to my right and left, little spurts of dirt would rise Into the air nnd a rico chet bullet would whine on lis way. If a Tommy should see one of these little spurts In front of him. he would tell the nurse nb'mt It later. The crossing of No Man's Land remains a blank to me. Men on my right nnd left would stumble and fall. Some would try to get up. while others remained huddled and motionless. Then smashed-up barbed wire came Into view and seemed carried on a tide to the rear. Suddenly. In front of me loomed a bnshcd-ln trench about four feet wide, j Queer-looking forms like mud turtles were scrambling up Its wall. .One of these forms seemed to slip nnd then rolled to tho bottom of the trei.ch. I leaped across this Intervening spac. The mnn to my left seemed to pause In mldulr, then pitched head down Into the Germnn trench. I laughed out loud In my delirium. Upon alighting on the other side of the trench I came to with a sudden jolt. Right In front of me loomed a giant form with a rifle which looked nbout ten feet long, on the end of which seemed seven bayonets. These flashed In the air In front of me. Then ! through my mind flashed the admonl- j tlon of our bayonet instructor back In I Blighty. He had said, "whenever yon get In a charge and run your bayonet j up to the hilt Into a German the Fritz ; will fall. Perhaps your rifle will be i wrenched from your grasp. Do not ! waste time, If the bayonet Is fouled j In his equipment, by putting your foot i on his stomach and tugging nt the rifle j to extricate the bayonet. Simply press the trigger nnd the bullet will ' free It." In my present situation this was the logic, but for the life of me ! I could not remember how he had told , mo to get my bnyonet Into the Gor- man. To me this was the paramount ; issue. I closed my eyes and lunired ' forward. My rille was torn from my ! hands. I must have gotten the Ger man because he had disappeared. About twenty feet to my left front wns a huge Prussian nearly six feet four Inches in height, a fine specimen of physical manhood. The bayonet from his rifle was missing, but he clutched the barrel in both hands and was swinging the butt around his head. could almost hear the swish of the butt passing through the air. Three little Tommies were engaged with him. They looked like pigmies alongside of the Prussian. The Tommy on the left was gradually circling to the rear of his opponent. It was a funny sight to see them duck the swinging butt nnd try to Jab him at tho same time. The Tommy nearest me received the butt of the German's rifle In a smashing blow below the right temple. It smashed his head like un eggshell. He pitched forward on his side and a con vulsive shudder run through his body. Meanwhile the other Tommy had gained the rear of the Prussian. Sud denly about four Inches of bnyonet protruded from the throat of the Prus sian soldier, who staggered forward and fell. I will never forget the look of blank astonishment that came over his face. Then something hit me In the left shoulder and my left side went numb. It felt ns If a hot poker was being driven through me. I felt no pain Just a sort of nervous shock. A bny onet had pierced me from the rear. I fell backward on the ground, but wns not unconscious, Decause I could see dim objects moving around me. Then a flash of light in front of my eyes and unconsciousness. Something had hit me on the head. I have never found out what It was. I dreamed I was being tossed nbout in nn open boat on a heaving sea and opened my eyes. The moon was shin ing. I was on a stretcher being car ried down one of our communication trenches. At the advanced first-aid post my wounds were dressed, nnd then I wns put into an nmbulnnce nnd sent to one of the base hospitals. The wounds in my shoulder nnd head were not serious and In six weeks I had re joined my company for service in the rout line. Empey joins the "Suicide club." The thrilling details are told in the next installment ITO BE CONTINUED.) DEADLY WEAPON OF WARFARE German Albatross Is Probably the Most Powerful Machine That Has Yet Been Developed. The tendency In airplanes hns been to run to two extremes for fighting. small and fast as possible; nnd for bombing, ns large nnd powerful possible. In a three-seated, one passenger sits out In front mounted a machine-gun turret. The pilot comes next. Immediately behind the motor, while the second pnssenger sits behind him mounted in another ma chine-gun turret. This nirplnne Is capable of cnrrylng many hunded pounds of explosives nnd, being very fast and heavily armed, generally ac complishes Its mission. The German nlbatross Is capable of a horizontal speed of 300 kilometers (about 187 miles) nn hour. It Is a single senter and carries three ma chine guns, which, being controlled by the motor, shoot automatically nnd si multaneously through the propeller. The sight of these weapons converges at approximately 50 yards In front of the airplane, making the chance of hitting the opponent three times as sure. The motor Is equipped with an electric self-starter. It has also elec trical devices for keeping the water worm In the radiator while flying nt great heights. The wing surface Is less than SO square yard 8eri!inr'i. 1 ... f , The Meat Line Helps to SUPPLY OF FATS IS URGENT NEED Requirements Can Be Met Most Quickly by Increasing Number of Hogs on Farms. SWINE REQUIRE LESS LABOR Animals Have No Rival in Putting Waste Material to Profitable Use - Department of Agriculture Offers Assistance. Not only on the farms, but also In i (lie small towns und suburbs where upace Is available, everyone who can fhoui'l raise one or more pigs and thus furnish the pork supply for hlm tclf and perhaps for a soldier. Assist ance in doing this may be obtained from publications of the United States department of agriculture which will be S:nt free on request. Pork is the mainstay of the nation, the laboring man and the soldier, and the need for increasing the supply of fats Is especially great. The need for ineut and fats can be met more quickly by Increasing the number of hogs than la any other manner. Hogs require less labor, equipment and cap ital, make greater gains for the quan tity of food fed nnd give a quicker turnover of money than uny kind of live stock except poultry. Further more, pork products hnve the advan tage of being easily transported. No branch of live stock farming gives bet ter results than the Intelligent raising of well-bred swine. Food From Garbage. As n consumer of by-products the hog has no rival, which Is au addi tional reason for pork raising now When the elimination of waste Is an emphatic necessity. There Is ample evidence that where table scraps form a part or ull of the pig's diet the gains cost considerably less than the gains made by grain-fed animals. There Is no "best" breed of swine. Some breeds are superior to others In certain respects and one breed may be better adapted than another to certain local conditions. There are two distinctive types, the lard type and the bacon type. Swine of the lard type far outnumber those of the bacon type In the United States. With the ingredients of a good ra tion constantly placed before them so that they may eat it well, hogs will make gains more rapidly and more eco nomically than when fed by hand. The self-feeder is growing In popularity. It Is simply a device by means of which a supply of grain or other feed Is kept constantly available to the hogs In order that they may nlways satisfy their appetites with the proper kind and amount of feed. "Soldiers of the Commissary." By means of the boys' pig clubs of the department of agriculture thou sands of boys arc being instructed in hog raising, and by this means are helping to produce a very important food for our soldiers and sailors. Your county ngent, club leader or director of extension work at your state agri cultural college will tell you of the work in your own state and how to Join a club. The department wants 200,000 boys to raise pigs 10,000 did It In pig clubs last year but whether you ure young or old, if you live In the country or the suburbs of a city, you can do it, too, and thereby be come a "soldier of the commissary." How to Get Information. Farmers' bulletins covering prac tically every phase of the swine in dustry ure available for free distribu tion and may be obtained by writing to the United States department of ag riculture, Washington. The states Also have published much excellent material on the subject of hog raising. An inquiry about hogs addressed to your state agricultural college will bring you information on what has been Issued by your own state. Your county agent can supplement the printed advice by suggestions as to the adaptation of directions to your local conditions. Some of the hog raising publications of the United States department of ag riculture nre listed below: "Swine Management," Farmers Bul letin 874; "Breeds of Swine," Farm LIVC.STOCKH Every pig, culf, lamb nud kid that can be economically raised will add more nnlnuil food to our' limited sup Ply. e Animals will be required for tho food supply and unless they are raised and fed the time will soon come when peo ple will not have sutftVicut food. e f V .1 1 V V iiiimi r Strengthen the Battle Line. ers' Bulletin 7(i", containing Informa tion on the various hrewls, their ori gin, general appearance, development and adaptability; 'Tig Clubs und the Swine Industry," describing the pig club work ; "Movable Hog Houses,' Secretary's Circular 102; "Hog Hous es."

Don't forget that the meat line Is, of direct Importance to the battle Hue. CATTLE AFTER WAR The United States at present probably has more purebred cattle of beef and dairy types than is possessed by uny other nation or combination of na tions, according to the depart ment of agriculture. At the close of the wur European coun- tries will require the different types of purebred animals to re build their depleted herds. Study of present and future world conditions leads to the conclusion that continental Eu rope will bid high for the dairy type, while Russia will require nil types, especially the beef types. It seems certain that lm IKjrtlng countries will require cattle free from disease. Disease eradication in our cat tle Is therefore a matter of the highest Importance not only for the benefit of our own consum ers but to facilitate after-the-war trade. Time to Start Sheep Raising. Late summer or curly fall is the most favorable time to make a start In sheep raising Ewes may be pro cured more readily at this time, and when purchased may be kept on meadows, groin stubble fields, or late sown forage crops to get them In good condition for breeding Experience with the ewes through fall and winter will also make a be ginner more capable of attending to them at lambing time It is seldom possible to buy any considerable num ber of bred ewes at reasonable prices. The inexperienced sheep raiser should begin with grade ewes of the best class available and a purebred ram. The raising of purebred stock and the selling of breeding rams can best be undertaken by persons experi enced in sheep raising. Don't Walt on Hog Cholera. Don't tuke a chance with a sick hog. Act quickly. Get a veterinarian or a trained man immediately. Only prompt action will stop hog-cholera loss. i. Every hog saved will help to win the war. The time for argument about anti-hog-cholera serum Is past, declare specialists of the United States depart ment of agriculture. Figures prove that when administered efficiently and in time, hog-cholera serum will keep well hogs from taking the disease. Quick action is imperative to get serum nnd a trained operator to treat the hogs. Be a Weed Detective. If the first appearance in this coun try of weeds, such as Russian thistle, field hawkweed, and Canada thistle, had been reported, much of the loss and trouble they are causing might have been prevented. It Is Important to report to federal or state authori ties the appearance o new weeds and to take precautious to prevent their .spread. Fighting the Sheep-Killer. Five states during 1917 enacted Im proved legislation to protect sheep from doss, and similar action is being considered in other states. Protection of this kind means more mutton and wool. Feed for Young Calf. When the calf Is two weeks old a little mill feed may be added to the milk. This quantity may be gradual ly increased. Best Base for Separator. A concrete base for the separator is a good thing, but between it and the base of the machine, bolt down a board vo provide elasticity. For persons who put mutton the Southdown Is the best breed. first, Sulphur mixed with salt is an ex cellent tonic for sheep. Raising animals Is very Important and every farmer who Is situated so he can should raise them. Lice In large numbers soon sap the vitality of hogs. They multiply faster In summer than In winter.

Here is a little story lhat wns told nt n social session by Representative Hubert D. Stephens of Mississippi, as an illustration that the best industrial results cannot always be obtained through team work : Some time since, the teacher of a public school in a country town was instructing n Juvenile class In mathe matics when she turned to a small boy Darned Tommy. "Tommy," said she, "if your father can do a piece of work in six days and your uncle Jim can do It in seven days, how long would it take them to do it together?" "About ten thousand years," was the rather startling rejoinder of Tommy. "Ten thousand years !' exclaimed the teacher. "Why, Tommy, what do you meun?" "I mean," wns the prompt response of Tommy, "that if you put them to work together they would sit on the fence, smoke and swap fish stories." Philadelphia Evening Telegraph.
