Fired by the sinking of the Lusitania, with the loss of American lives, Arthur Guy Empey, an American living in Jersey City, goes to England and enlists as a private in the British army. After a short experience as u recruiting officer in London, he is sent to train ing quarters in France, where he first hears the sound of big guns and makes the acquaintance of "cooties." After a brief period of training Empey's company is sent into the front-line trenches, where he takes his first turn on the fire, step while the bullets whiz overhead. CHAPTER VI. Continued. 5 After dinner I tried to wash out the dixie with cold water and a rag, and learned another maxim of the trenches "It can't be done.': I slyly watched one of the older men from another section, and was horrified to see him throw into his dixie four or five double handfuls of mud. Then he poured in some water, and with his hands scoured the dixie inside and out. I thought he was taking an awful risk. Supposing the cook should have seen him! After half an hour of unsuc cessful efforts I returned my dixie to the cook shack, being careful to put on the cover, and returned to the billet. Pretty soon the cook poked his head in the door and shouted: "Hey, Yank, come out here and clean your dixie! I protested that I had wasted a half hour on it already, and had used up my only remaining shirt in the at tempt. With a look of disdain he ex claimed: "Blow me, your shirt! Why i didn't you use mud?" Without a word in reply I got busy with the mud, and soon my dixie was bright and shining. Most of the afternoon was spent by the men writing letters home. I used my spare time to chop wood for the cook and go with the quartermaster to How I envied him. But when the issue commenced my envy died, and I real- zed that the first requisite of a non commissioned officer on active service is diplomacy. There were 19 men in our section, and they soon formed a semicircle around us after the corporal had called out, "Rations up." The quartermaster sergeant . had given a slip to the corporal on which was written a list of the rations. Sit ting on the floor, using a wooden box as a table, the issue commenced. On the left of the corporal the rations were piled. They consisted of the fol lowing : Six loaves of fresh bread, each loaf of a different size, perhaps one out of the six being as fiat as a pancake, the result of an army service corps man placing a box of bully beef on it dur ing transportation. Three tins of jam, one apple and the other two plum. Seventeen Bermuda onions, all dif ferent sizes. A piece of. cheese in the shape of a wedge. Two one-pound tins of butter. $ I The corporal borrowed a jackknife (corporals are always borrowing), and sliced the cheese each slicing bring ing forth a pert remark from the on lookers as to the corporal's eyesight. "Raisins, ounces, eight." By this time the corporal's nerves had gone west, and in despair he said that the raisins were to be turned over to the cook for "duff" (plum pudding). This decision elicited a little "grous ing," but quiet was finally restored. "Biscuits, tins, one." With his borrowed jackknife, the corporal opened the tin of biscuits, and told everyone to help themselves no body "responded to this invitation. Tommy is "fed up" with biscuits. "Butter, tins, two." "Nine in one, ten in the other.' Another rumpus. "Pickles, mustard, bottles, one." Nineteen names were put in a steel helmet, the last one out winning the pickles. On the next issue there were only 18 names, as the winner is elimi nated until every man in the section has won a bottle. The raffle is closely watched, because Tommy is suspicious when it comes to gambling with his rations. At the different French estaminets in the village and at the canteens Tom my buys fresh eggs, milk, bread and pastry. Occasionally when he is flush, he invests in a tin of pears or apri cots. His pay is only a shilling a day, 24 cents, or a cent an hour. Just imag ine, a cent an hour for being under fire not much chance of getting rich out there. When he goes into the fire trench (front line). Tommy's menu takes a tumble. He carries in his haversack what the government calls emergency or iron rations.

In Tommy's eyes a lance corporal is one degree below a private. In the corporal's eyes he is one degree above a general. He ordered me to go with him and help him draw the next day's rations, also told me to take my waterproof. Every evening, from each platoon or machine-gun section, a lance corporal and private go to the quartermaster sergeant at the company stores and draw rations for the following day. The "quarter," as the quartermaster sergeant is called, receives dally from the orderly room (captain's office) a slip showing the number of men en titled to rations, so there is no chance of putting anything over on him. Many nremments take dace between the "quarter" and the platoon nonsom, but the former always wins out. Tommy says the "quarter" got his job because he' was a burglar in civil life. Then I spread the waterproof sheet on the ground, while the quartermas ter's batman dumped the rations on It. The corporal was smoking a fag. I carried the rations back to the billet. The corporal was still smoking a fag. voice he read out, "No. 1 section, in men. -Bread, loaves, six." He looked mizzled and soliloauized in a musing voice : "Six loaves, nineteen men. Let's see, that's three in a loaf for fifteen men- well, to make it even, four of you 11 have to muck in on one loaf." The four that got stuck made a howl, but to no avail. The bread was dished out. Pretty soon from a far corner of the billet, three indignant Tommies ac costed the corporal with: "What do you call this, a loaf of bread? Looks more like a sniping plate." The corporal answered: "Well, don't blame me, I didn't bake it; somebody's got to get it, so shut up until I dish out these blinkin' ra tions." Then the. corporal started on the jam. "Jam, three tins apple one, plum two. Nineteen men, three tins. Six in a tin makes twelve men for two tins, seven in the remaining tin." He passed around the jam, and there was another riot. Some didn't like apple, while others who received plum were partial to apple. After a while differences were adjusted and the issue went on. "Bermuda onions, seventeen." The corporal avoided a row byN say ing that he did not want an onion, and I said they make your breath smell, so I guessed I would dp without one too. The corporal looked his gratitude. "Cheese, pounds, two." Not Taking Any Chances. I'oiuild was repeatedly cautioned to to careful in crossing the street.

This ls a section of the company in charge of the quartermaster sergeant, composed of men. mules and limbers (two- wheeled wagons), which supplies Tom my's wants while in the front line. They are constantly under shell fire. The rations are unloaded at the en trance to the communication trenches and are, "Carried in" by men detailed for that purpose. The quartermaster sergeant never goes into the front-line trench. He doesn't have to, and I have never heard of one volunteering to do so. The company sergeant major sorts the rations and sends them in. Tommy's trench rations consist of all the bully beef he can eat, biscuits, cheese, tinned butter (sometimes 17 men to a tin), jam or marmalade, and occasionally fresh bread (ten to a loaf). When it is possible he gets tea and stew. When things are quiet, and Fritz is behaving like a gentleman, which sel dom happens, Tommy has the opportu nity of making dessert. This is "trench pudding." It is made from broken biscuits, condensed milk, jam a' little water added, slightly flavored with mud put into a canteen and cooked over a little spirit stove known as "Tommy's cooker." (A firm in Blighty widely advertises these cookers as a necessity for the men in the trenches. Gullible people buy them ship them to the Tommies, who, immediately upon receipt of same throw them over the rjarapet. Some times a Tommy falls for the ad, and uses the cooker in a dugout to the dis gust and discomfort of the other oc cupants.) This mess is stirred up in a tin and allowed to simmer over the flames from the cooker until Tommy decides that it has reached sufficient (gluelike) consistency! He takes his bayonet and by means of the handle carries the mess up in the front trench to cool, j After it has cooled off he tries to eat it. Generally one or two Tommies in a section have cast-iron stomachs and the tin is soon emptied. Once I tasted trench pudding, but only once. In addition to the regular ration is ue Tommy uses another channel to enlarge his menu. In the English papers a "Lonely Soldier" column is run. This is for the soldiers at the front who are sup posed to be without friends or rela tives. They write to the papers and their names are published. Girls and women in England answer them, and send out pa'rcels of foodstuffs, ciga rettes, candy, etc. I have known a "lonely" soldier to receive as many as five parcels and eleven letters in one week. ttrres of the great world?" asked the wart hog. "Are they any relations of mine? Perhaps they are our own family." "Indeed, they aren't," squealed the peccary. The creatures of the great world are the people the grown-ups, children and the keepers." "Yes, the keepers are great," said the wart hog, "they feed me so I have a great deal of use for them." "Don't talk like that," said the pec cary, "it's not good form." "Oh, gracious," said the wart hog; "who cares for good form? I'm sure I don't. And I don't think you think such a great deal of it, either, not from things I've noticed." Now, the peccary knew this was doubtless very true, so he did not try to argue it any longer. "I come from the tropics," said the peccary. "It's warm there, not like this winter cli mate." "Oh, very well," said the wart hog, "but the sun is out today and I'm feel ing pretty sleepy," "Is' that a hint?" asked Mr. Pec cary. "Take it any way you like," said Mr. Wart Hog. "I must admit though that I do like to sleep." "Really, when I stop to think of it," said the peccary, "you are the ugliest creature I have ever seen." "That's better than being nothing at nil," said the wart hog. "I would far rather be terrifically ugly than just plain and unattractive looking. As it is, I have distinction. I'm so ugly that I fascinate folks. They gaze and gaze at me, and they say to each other, Did you ever in all your born days see such an ugly creature?'" "And you like that?" asked Mr. Pec cary. "To be sure," said Mr. Wart Hog. "I feel as if I did things thoroughly, not half-way. I'm thoroughly ugly just as ugly as can be the ugliest creature anyone can look at." "Of all the things to be proud of,' said Mr. Peccury, "that is quite the strangest." "Well, I am naturally contented," said the wart hog. "IJike to lie in the sun and sleep, and then wake up and have something to eat. It's an Ideal existence, perfectly ideal. And I am proud that I take the lead in ugli ness." "Most people," said Mr. Peccary, "like to take the lead in beauty, but not in ugliness." "I am not 'most people,'" said Mr. Wart Hog. "I am the wart hog." "That is true," said Mr. Peccary. "My white crooked horns," said Mr. Wart Hog, "are queer. My snout hangs down in a most peculiar fashion. I am very much wrinkled and I have a few ugly hairs. I'm truly an ugly spe cimen." "I'm interesting looking," said Mr. Peccary. "I am rather bushy, like a porcupine. I have a snout like a pig but not like yours, goodness no !" "Too bad," said the wart hog, as if he felt sorry for Mr. Peccary. "I'm glad I haven't," said Mr. Pec cary, but Mr. Wart Hog had dozed off and hadn't heard that remark. He woke up again while Mr. Peccary was saying, "I have a small, dainty under Hp, and my coat is black and gray.

Poor digestion and assimilation means faUure to derive fuU nourish taent from food and that in turn often means impoverished blood, weakness, anemia, etc. Poor elimination means an accumulation of waste matter which poisons the body, lowers vitality, decreases the power of resistance to disease and leads to the development of many serious ills. Rheumatisn, due to some inter ference with the- process of elimina tion, failure to get rid of certain body poisons, cannot be expected to yield to any medicine that fails to correct the condition responsible for it.
