No sooner had the warming ny of
romance broken through the sable
clouds that had for long: hung over
my bead than a rim and terrible
tragedy obliterated the brightness
once more.
My finance, whom I had met prac
tically in the front-line trenches, and
to whom I had become engaged but
three days previously, was executed
before my eyes shot after a mock
trial because he had protected my
honor against a bullying Hun ober-lieutenant.
No wonder my
though I ash tod
years of age.
I had volunteered as a Red Cross
nurse for work under active service
conditions after losing ' my three
brothers as a direct consequence of
the war.
After six months In France I found
myself at a clearing station not far
from the front line trenches.
Here I met a young officer who
had keen wounded, and a very warm
feeling sprang up between us. Hj
was the only eon of a widow, hl
father having been killed leading his
men at the Dardanelles.
Our friendship ripened into love,
and ona night I -promised to be his
wife as soon as circumstances per
mitted. ILapy Dreams Dispelled.
Aims for my dreams ' of happiness?
Two nights later a strong attack was
launched by the Germans, and, over-
j whelmed by weight of numbers our
I lads were forced to retire. Our
clearing station was full to overflow
ing, and transport could not reach u
' owing to shell fire.
Pieces of shrapnel pierced the
walls and roof of our station. Two
doctors were killed and a shell, ex
ploding right on the roof, killed four
dressers, and wounded me in the left
shonlder and side. I felt no pain,
only a numbness, but my sweetheart,
who had ben working Hke a galley
slave, rushed to help in the binding
up of my wounds.
Very soon the Germans were on us,
and an ober-lieutenant, revolver in
hand, dashed Into the clearing sta
tion. He shot both orderlies dead,
and lXck, my sweetheart, made to
rush at him. The German saw this,
and turned his pistol on Dick. I gave
a shriek and Dick stopped.
When the Hun saw ma ha gave
soma orders to tts) soldiers who had
followed him and crossed over to
where I lay. He sat on a bed beside
me and asked If I could speak Ger
man. I replied In the negative,
whereupon, speaking in English, he
abused me in a moat foul and ob
scene way. Two soldiers stood by
Dick, or else I am sure the German
would have had short shrift. But
when the German said he would take
a kit's this maddened Dick, and
Bprii.lng over to the Hun. he dealt
him a fearful blow In the face before
had soldera oould prevent
him. The next instant the men at
tacked my finance. One stuck his
bayonet in Dick's thigh, while the
officer brought the butt of his pistol
on Dick's head, and he sank uncon
scious to the floor.
Then, turning to the soldiers, he
told them to bind Dick, and after this
was done they lifted him, and put
ting him on a stretcher, they carried
Oe pair of us out Into the darkness.
After what seemed an eternity we
came to what in the gloom looked
like a mansion, and were carried
down some steps and flung upon the
floor of an evll-smelllng cellar,
where, helpless and unable to move,
we wore left for some hours;
Then the sound of tramping down
the stairs reached our ears, and soon
eix brutal looking Prussian soldiers
entered. Four lifted the stretcher bed
on which I lay and two laid hold of
Dick, who tottered In their grasp,
and forced, him roughly towards the
stairs. When we arrived at the top we
found ourselves In a spacious room
still beautifully decorated, although
most of the furnishings bore the un
mistakable marln of war.
At one end of a table sat the bruta!
ober-lieutenant. He could scarcely
keep his seat, so drunk was he, and
he leered evilly at me as I was de
posited on the floor near him. Pour
other officers In variious stages of
drunkenness made up ths court. I
was compelled to live there helpless
while the officers, after a travesty of
a trial, ordered my lover to be shot
at dawn for "attempting to murder
an officer of His Imperial Majesty
the German Emperor."
My Lover Shot Before My Eyes.
For a time I lost consciousness, and
when I recovered the grey rays of
dawn were beginning to filter
through the windows, and I prayed
for insensibility once more, so that
I might not hear the sounds which
would announce to me the doom of
my sweetheart.
But It was not to be, for just as
the streaks of light made vision pos
sible four soldiers entered, and, lift
ing me, bore me to the window. I
saw Dick standing alone before a
broken wall, and ra front of him ths
German soldiers and an officer. The
officer gave a glance p at the win
dow where I was and then as he
dropped the point of his drawn
sword and crave a sharp command a
volley rang out, and Dick collapsed
to his knees.. The officer ran forward
and. placing a pistol to Dick's head,
I must have swooned, then, for the
next I remembered was being: carried
at a rapid rate through the darkness,
the falling rain blowing In torrent
as we went. After - what seemed: t
long time, my bearers enterei
trench, and conveyed me into a
sumptously- furnished dug-out. I was
lifted on to a camp bed, and left
alone. Soma time elapsed,, then my
evil genius entered in the shape of
the ober-lieutenant, accompanied by
several other officers, who crowded
round me.
The Ueutant seemed to bs explain
ing ray presence and what led up to
my being there, when an orderly en
tered and repeated something very
hurriedly, and was just going- out
when another rushed In and shouted
something which seemed to create a
panic amongst the officers, who rush
ed pell mell from the dug-out. -ISrltlsb
Sergeant to the Rescue.
Ths sounds of heavy gun-firing or
shell explosions crept nearer, and I
surmised the British were attacking.
Nes". came afvoice. and a rushing of
feet down the entrance to the dug
out, then the ober-lieutenant, blood
stained . and wild-eyed, rushed in,
closely by a British sergeant.
"Put .yer" hands up, damn yel
the German flung his pistol at the
sergeant, who promptly plunsed hia
bayonet through the German's chest.
The Hun fell on his back. The ser
geant was making for the exit when
I yelled out.
He turned like a flash, levelling his
red bayonet. Then "God bless my
soul, a nurse!" cried he. "How the
devil came ye here, nurse?"
I told him I had been brought by
the orders of the German he had Just
He immediately went off to see his
