They do not relate now the tale of
their days and nights and weeks of
hell. PerhnpB that may come in time
but now their brains are dulled and
blunted. The sound of shrapnel
whistling in the air, the booming of
cannon, Hie dreadful agonied cry of
comrades, "Into the trenches," is all
they think and hear. Kven hunger
and cold have become of Utile im

My heart Is bowed in meekness and
humility. I eat the black, dirty bread
in abject thankfulness.

A soldh.T, his head in bandages, knelt
before a paper tlnsled decorated pic

soldier on crutches rattled off to a t
remote corner. There was only the
three of us in that sacred, quiet spot.
F.ven heathen in these days must be,
driven to prayer, but the churches !
are empty. j
Little Baggage Allowed. !
I required no time to pack. I bad f
only the linen bag, as I had been
ordered. I said good bye to the room
with the steam radiator but r:o heat,
with hot and cold water faucets but
no water. I hung my key for the
last time on t lie hook below the tiny
slate on which was written "Miss
lily." The sponge, tied to a string,
hangs on the same nail, so as to ex
pedite the registering of the new
comer's name.
Bookkeeping in Przemysl hotels
must be of the greatest simplicity.
A blackboard in the front hall regis
ters one's name opposite one's num
ber. The slate on one s door does
likewise. When one leaves it is eras
ed and that's all there is to it. Simi
lar simplicity in the I'nited States
might lighten work in the divorce
courts.
Followed by two miniature boys,
one with my bag, I went down the
four flights of stairs to the office.
There the servants I had never seen
waited for their small tip.
Our order was to be at the station
at 3:30. I arrived at 3. Already the
five soldier servants in our party
were appearing loaded down with
baggage. Pictures, guns, bags, suit
cases, cameras, kino machines, coats. ;
I
food, cooking apparatus, souvenirs,
etc., were brought until finally there
was a pile almost large enough to
till a car.
I, the only woman, was the only
person who obeyed orders and had
hut one bag, that small enough for
me to carry.
Many III and Wounded.
The sick ami wounded were being
brought by ambulance, slretcher nnd
wagon and carried lo the train.
Croat numbers of soldiers, apparent
ly Just arriving, were being given
bread.. "Splons," or spies, were be
ing Jostled on board between their
captors. One bare-footed, dry-eyed
woman ran back and forth seeking
unsuccessfully a way to pass the
soldiers at the door so as to follow a
Jew wlfli a fur-tailed church lint who
had been pushed into the train.
A pale, ragged, hatless boy tried to
dodge under a soldier's gun. He had
tied in a handkerchief some belong
ings, or perhaps food for n spy. He
could not evade the loyal watchful
guard. He whinncd and pleaded in 0
weak, thin voice, but the guaril was
unmoved.
Our party arrived like a tourist
party, glasses and bottles swung over
their shoulders, but carrying luggage?
Oh, no! Kadi flew to hcc if among J
the heaped up luggage the patient
soldiers had theirs.
Colonel John arrived and led us to
our two cars. At live and In the dark
we started. Wo could have 110 light,
because this train had been fired on
two days before. The day before it
was so dangerous that no train left.
In utter darkness our train left tho
fortress, and as it travelled along,
the moon hidden behind clouds, tho
only light being an occasional flash
from the engine, we could hear tho
crack, crack, crack of infantry. Now
and then a light, would appear sud
denly In the black sky. It looked liko
a far-distant skyrocket.
It was shrapnel. They appeared .
more and more, the crack of the In
fantry grew less anil less. It. sounded
at intervals on the east, the main,
liring having ceased. The shrapnel
grew more and more. Then tho
shrapnel, like tint firing, ceased, and
we rolled off into the dark, still
night.
What Make for Good Work.
We never do well that which we da
not enjoy doing, that toward which
our faculties of thought, feeling and
tempermeut do not converge with
unanimity of assent
