GREAT WAR ON BATTLEFIELDS AND THE SEA Carriers of Vital Messages Ever Since Battle of Marne in 1914. U-BOAT ISJRM BY BIRD "7Z Trenches Taken pun Speed to Headquarters and Supply LinesInformation Gained From Captured Pigeons. mLaTAt thG nes ate ot Paris Banhol,lfen R mem0ria1' the Uartholdi, on which is inscribed- Monument to the Balloonists and I Car- S 'f 0ns,of 18TO-" What memorial Jill acknowledge the services of car rier pigeons in the world's war of 1914 10 8 remains to be seen, but their work he 2ip-Z p of machine-gun bullets and the death destroying gases was of enormous value. Carrier pigeons were used on all the battlefronts but their best work was on the western front, from the chan nel to the Swiss border and from the Alps to the Adriatic ried messages at the Marne, when the tT , dnven back h Marshal JolTre. Hundreds were used in the battle of the Yser, in Flanders, when the Belgians and the French halted the German advance; and they made many and frequent trips in the first battle of Ypres, in the drive on the channel ports when the British, French and Belgians stopped the Germans de cisively in the final battle at the close of 1914. They aided in the capture of Neuve Chapelle by the British and they died in numbers with the British Tommies at the second battle of Ypres, when the Germans advanced toward the Yser canal using for the first time poisonous gas. Again the birds did valiant service when the French tried to break through in the Champagne in the fall of 1915, and in the whole series of the Verdun attacks lasting through July, oftentimes the only com munications with men in advanced sta tions were the dogs that crept through the barrages and the carrier pigeons that returned with messages. Where telephone and wireless broke down, and men could not survive the storm of shell fire, it is recorded that 97 per cent of the messages carried by carrier pigeons came safely through. Told of German Retreat. When the Germans retired to the "Hindenburg line," It was carrier pig eons carried forward into the front advance lines that brought back the news of the retirement long before telephonic communication could be es tablished. Through the whole area, 1,300 square miles, on a front of 100 miles from Arras to Soissons, carrier pigeons did their work effectively. And wherever the Americans fought, at Cantigny, Chateau-Thierry, Torcy, Bouresches, Belleau wood, Conde-en-Brie. Buzancy, Jaulgonne, Fere-en-Tar-denols. Bligne, Cierges, Viliers-Argron, Fismes, Frapelle, Bazoches, Juvigny, St. Mlhiel, Argonne forest carrier pigeons were likewise on the job. A carrier pigeon aided in capturing a U-boat and her crew. A coast watch er on one of the loneliest parts of the west coast at sundown saw the tip of a periscope arise and then the conning tower of a U-boat. The underwater boat stopped, and the officers and crew were seen on deck. The lookout man tied a note bearing the information to the leg of a carrier pigeon and released It from his basket. The next morning a German submarine, which had run out of gasoline, and its officers and crew were taken to a naval sub-base. A British patrol boat was discov ered by a German submarine and tor pedoed and shelled. The skipper, hav ing on board a carrier pigeon, wrote a brief message, telling his position and what had happened. As the boat Bank, the skipper began swimming for some wreckage to cling to. The pigeon went up gradually in a spiral, and the Germans, seeing it, began shooting at the bird. The skipper, drifting on the wreckage, gave up hope when he saw the bird had been hit. Twenty miles away, however, it lighted on a patrol ling destroyer, its silver-gray plumage RACHEL M'MILLAN BABY CAMP IN ENGLAND One of the features at this big English nursery camp is the out-of-doors Bleeping quarters for the children. Every day that weather permits the children take this healthy way of getting their afternoon nap. JACKSON COUNTY WORK OTlPIGEONS specked with blood, its tail feathers shot away, and one of its wings wound ed. The commanding officer read the message, the destroyer was rushed at full speed to the place indicated, and within three-quarters of an hour from the time that the pigeon was sent off, the officers and crew of the patrol were picked up where they clung to the wreckage. Spy With Pigeons. An American at Liege, in writing of the German advance, told this inci dent : "As I returned to the city, walking along the River Meuae, I saw one who, oblivious of war and its alarms, was dangling his legs over the water and peacefully fishing. The battle in the air, which he must have witnessed, had not moved him. The certainty that the Germans were only a few miles away had not concerned him. He smoked his pipe and placidly cast his line. It was soothing to overstrained nerves to see that chap, but It was only a few hours later that I learned a German spy had been arrested as he posed as a fisherman, with a creel full of carrier pigeons." Another story reads: "In the cowl, habit and tonsure that mark the monk a young man told his beads aboard the train bound for Ant werp. And a woman, hardly more than a girl, kept her eyes fastened on the man of prayers. She studied on the devotion with which his fingers slipped from decade to decade of the long, well-worn rosary that hung from the cincture about his waist. But,, al though his lips appeared to move in humble supplication, the woman saw that he had failed to kiss the cross. The lapse was significant. "'Spy!' the girl hissed into the face of the alleged ascetic. In an instant two guards had seized the man and rushed him down the train corridor. The woman examined the small wicker basket behind in the seat. Lifting the lid, she found three pigeons." Get German Pigeons. A news dispatch briefly summarized such a find thus: "A German trawler was captured by a British warship near the Orkney islands to the north of Scotland. She is believed to have been engaged in spying, as carrier pigeons were found on board." Reference has already been made to the number of messages carried back to the French lines by carrier pigeons in the defense of Verdun. A pigeon captured by the French conveyed this information : "The rolling fire of the enemy with guns of the heaviest caliber Is such that sectors S., C, and H. are to a great extent leveled. The garrison, in cluding that of sector V., is disorgan ized completely. Some of it has been obliged to fall back on the Eighty-third and Ninety-eighth regiments, which also had to retire. "Sector V. (von Raun's) was sub jected to such fire that its observation post was put out of order. All sorties are being bombarded and one is occu pied constantly in replacing them. "The battalion asks Its immediate Red Cross Workers Aid Exiled Greeks Athens. In its work in the Greek islands the American Red Cross has the co-operation of the United States navy. Six submarine chasers have been assigned for transporting person nel and supplies. On the Island of Mytilene are 52,000 Greeks, wTho fled there from Asia Minor five years ago. Red Cross work ers are regularly visiting all the towns and clothing has been given to about 20,000 of the refugees. At the outbreak of the war, in 1914, there were 3,000,000 in Asia Minor. More than 500,000 escaped to the Islands In the Aegean. Thousands were massacred. Armed bands of Turks roamed the countryside, plun- . derlng and murdering Greeks wherever JOURNAL, SYLVA, N. C. relief this evening by fresh troops. It can fight no longer. "(Signed) "FIRST LIEUTENANT STEIN BRECHT." Carrier pigeons tell headquarters of the progress of a battle. Here Is a typical report when the French army fought along the Aisne: "It immediately appeared that the destruction of the German defense had been accomplished with as much success as could be hoped for in so difficult a country. By 7:30 a. m. we learned by carrier pigeon and other means that the Chateau de la Motte on the French left near Allemant had been carried, and that at the center Malmaison Fort was taken. At 8:45 Allemant village had been occupied, the prisoners numbered a thousand, and the French assault troops were ad vancing across the central plateau to ward Vaudesson and Mont Parnasse quarry. At 10:30 the news was that they were at the north of Hill 173, the further spur of Malmaison plateau, and in a quarry 220 yards west of the fort. By 2:45 p. m. the villages of Chavignon and Vaudesson, with sev eral neighboring quarries lying on the northern edge of the Aisne hills, had been occupied. Chavignon was the furthest point contemplated . in the plan and represented an advance of one and one-half miles made in the face of the best remaining troops of the German empire." Aided by Camouflage. While many carrier pigeons changed their habits of spiraling, finding it a dangerous practice and learned to fly back and then forward at an altitude comparatively low, camouflage aided birds considerably in getting back to their loft carrying with them messages from troops in front. At Fort Vaux, in the battle of Verdun, the crown prince's army had a special group of men shooting down carrier pigeons as they left the fort. And another story of Verdun. It was at Thiaumont, sixteen times taken, lost and retaken. Wireless and telephones had long ceased to exist! No human being could cross the ter rain. The commandant was in des perate need of communicating with the rear. Suddenly the glasses re vealed a dog, crouching on its belly, crawling through the flashes, and in a moment of temporary lull leaping forward. On its back was a pannier. Nearer and nearer the dog came, and prayers were involuntarily offered as the beast flattened out here and there in the debris for shelter. Another lull and the dog leaped forward and at last it scampered into Thiaumont with the pigeons safe in the pannier. On the dog's collar was this message: "We relieve you by attack on Froid terre, 3 p. m." "Stop the German battery on our left. Here are the elements for point ing," was the written message of the commandant sent back by one of the pigeons. Another momentary lull and the pigeon is released. Dog and pig eon, faithful and distinguished friends of man, have done their work to save civilization. found. The others, driven out of their homes and sent Inland, are now return ing, to find their homes either destroy ed or occupied by Turks. The refugees in the Aegean Islands intend to return to Asia Minor as soon as conditions permit. At present the Greek government gives each refugee six cents a day. The Red Cross is devoting much at tention to the prevention of further epidemics, such as the typhus scourge, which took such a heavy toll at Myti lene. Food is scanty and costly, and most of the refugees are underfed, even In the large towns. Nearly all are in rags. The hospitals are short of medi clnes and other supplies, and hav been Crowded by influenza cases. Clothing, blankets and medicine are needed on all the islands. Canned meat for broth is wanted in the hos pitals. American women run the worshops where clothing is made on the three islands of Mytilene, Chins and Samos. 22,000 in Town of Mytilene. Of the 52,000 refugees on Mytilene 22,000 are in the town of Mytilene and its suburbs; the others are scattered about in 62 villages. Of the 20,000 refugees on Crios part are sheltered in old houses and the rest in wooden barracks, divided with bagging and old carpets into "rooms?," each accommodating a family of from five to ten persons. The islands of Lemnos, Imbros, Ten edos and Samothrace are served with Red Cross supplies from Mytilene ; Oin ousa is served from Chios, and Ilcania from Samos. The American Red Cross agents were received at Mytilene with thf greatest enthusiasm.

L. W. GOSNELL Assistant Dean, Moody Bible Institute. Chicago TEXT Blessed are the dead which are In the Lord. Rev. 14:13. What becomes of our dead when they "die in the Lord?" To begin with, they go to a cer tain place. The Jews called this the place of de parted spirits, Sheol, while in the language of the New Testa raent it was known as Hades. In the Old Testa ment, Sheol Is conceived of as in the heart of the earth, for the dy ing are spoken of as going "down" to it. It had two compartments, as set forth in the pic ture of the rich man and Lazarus: One a place of torment; the other, called "Abraham's bosom," or pafti dise, a place of feasting and repose; and between them was a great gulf fixed. Christ himself descended to Sheol or Hades, and told the dying thief he would be with him that day In Paradise (Luke 23:39-43). Since the ascension of our Lord, the location of Paradise seems changed: Stephen looked "up" into heaven and saw Jesus (Acts 7:55) and Paul was caught "up" to the third heaven, to Paradise (II Cor. 12:2-4). It is sug gested in Ephesians 4:S that when Christ ascended he delivered from Sheol or Hades all the righteous dead, from Abel onward, and carried them with him into the presence of God. Hence we understand that in this age the righteous depart to be with Christ in a Paradise which is on high. The state of the dead in Christ is a restful one. They "sleep in (or through) Jesus" (I Thess. 4:14). He died, bearing our sins on the cross; because of this fact we do not die, but rather fell to sleep. Rest is very attractive In this weary world; the power of this attraction is suggested by the fact that Buddhism, the re ligion having the largest number of adherents, holds out annihilation as the chief boon for man. Are the Dead Conscious? The state of the dead in Chlst Is a conscious one. Some have Inferred from the scriptural language about sleep that the soul slumbers in the in termediate state. But the Scripture nowhere asserts that the souls of the dead are asleep. Even in normal sleep we are quite conscious. Charles Spur geon once arose from his bed, light ed a lamp and wrote the full outline of a sermon which he preached the cext morning. Yet he was sound asleep while writing the sermon and could hardly believe the testimony of his own eyes when he saw the outline on his desk in the morning. The Bible clearly teaches that the dead are con scious. If it were otherwise how could Paul say it would be better for him to depart to be with Christ than to re main on earth to work for him (Phil. 1 :23) ? The state of the righteous dead is a blessed one. The expressions used in the Scripture to describe it are full of significance. For example, Para dise was a name applied to a king's park and suggests ordered and stately beauty, together with noble society. The dead are said to be "at home with the Lord" (n Cor. 5 :8 R. V.) As one has put it, home is "the scene where our whole being is in sweet and vivid harmony with surroundings." We grieve over our departed friends as If they had gone out into a world of mystery where they will be strangers and ill at ease. How blessed to know that they are "at home with the Lord !" They do not wait even a single mo ment to enter into this bliss, for "to de part is to be with Christ" (Phil. 1:23). State of the Dead. Finally, the state of the dead may be described as an unclothed one. Paul speaks In II Cor. 5 of the "earthly house of this tabernacle" being dis solved. He goes on to say, In verses two to four: "For In this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from Leaven: if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swal lowed up of life." In other words, while glad at the prospect of being absent from the body because he would be at home with the Lord, yet he does not consider this the highest possible boon. The intermediate state would find him unclothed, without a body. Paul evidently felt he would not be perfect until he received a glorified body. Hence he hoped that the Lord himself might come before death over took him so that he might be "clothed upon," as with a garment, with his house from heaven. What significance this gives, for both the living and the dead who are in Christ, to the words of Paul: "Now is Christ risen from the dead and become the 'first fruits of them that slept!"
