It is one of those weird romances
of the sea and war.
Word was flashed to the bombing
base one afternoon that a seaplane
was down on the surface of the water
about thirty miles off the coast. A
fast motor boat, ready for such emer
gencies, was sent out. A surgeon al
ways accompanies such expeditions.
Doctor Dooley in ordinary circumstan

what he thought were lights of a town

Meanwhile the German bombing
planes started to raid the base. The
sound of exploding bombs dropping
around the air base was heard by Mr.
Moore even before the automobile was
near home.
"Where is Stevens?" asked the ex
ecutive officer, as tlie car drew up.
"Taken prisoner by the Germans,"
was the reply.
"Well, I guess he is lucky at that.
His pet place, in which he always
stands when the raiders come, was
blown to pieces half an hour ago."

Variety in Uncle Sam's Menu Make*
It Attractive—Doughboys Grow
With the American Army in France.
-—"Chow time" means one of the most
picturesque sights along the front, es
pecially with the Americans. It seems
to mean more to the Americans than
to any other army, perhaps because
American "grub" is better.
Happen along through a ruined vil
lage or a woods in an American sector
fifteen minutes before "chow time" and
you would think the place deserted.
Probably there wouldn't be more than
one or two stray doughboys in sight.
Come along fifteen minutes later and
you wonder "where in thunder they all
came from."
They'll be lined up, and in front of
each line there'll be a field kitchen
steaming away, with a perspiring army
cook dishing out grub that makes you
want to "grab some tools and get in
line" too.
There's lots of animation at "chow
time" among the Americans. A crowd
of Frenchriien is quiet while eating,
the only time French soldiers are
quiet. They munch their bread and
meat and vegetables and drink their
wine in silence.
Not so with the Americans. It's a
big time. First of all, there's specula
tion on "what's the chow for today,"
There's variety In Uncle Sara's army
Tfien, as they sit around on the
ground, on ruins, or under trees, and
that satisfied feeling of having eaten
a good meal grows upon them, there's

"Doughboy chow" is good. Usually
there is soup. Then there are meat
and vegetables, usually two kinds.
There are always big slices of white
bread and coffee. Nine times out of
ten there's dessert, probably pudding
or fruit.

Democratic Lesders' Claim of
Monopoly on Patriotism
Insult to Millions.
It Is of themselves, not of the Presi
dent, that Democratic members of
Congress are thinking when they urge
the election of a Democratic Congress
upon the ground it is necessary in or
der to support the President in his war
It is partisanship and not
patriotism that they are preaching. It
la a base effort to make party capital
but of a national crisis and "cash In"
as a party on national sacrifices.
From the very beginning the Repub
licans in Congress have unhesitatingly
voted money, men and other resources
and power without limit whenever the
Administration asked it as a war
measure. The record shows that upon
several occasions when war measures
asked by President Wilson were be
ing bitterly fought by Democratic
leaders the Republican leaders came
to the rescue of the X'resldent and
gave him what he wanted.
Republicans have resigned their
seats in Congress to enter into active
military service in support of the war.
Republicans everywhere have sent
hundreds of thousands of their own
flesh and blood to give armed support
to the President and the government.
Republicans have led the fight for pre
paredness. They have stood by the
war to the utmost. They are commit
ted against any peace that is not dic
tated by victory. Their record as par
ty In Congress and as Individuals out
side of Congress proves their 100 per
cent. Americanism.
In asking control of the next Con
gress, Republicans are merely asking
permission and opportunity to pull
half the load : to share in (he patriotic

of their nation during a crisis. To
meet this crisis they have responded
