On getting through the camp the cars went on In dependently, shooting nil loaded camels and men within reach. Two of these camels carried mixed loads of petrol and high explosive shell.

"The Turklah gunner stock to their guns like good men. When we passed 1 them without killing them they turned " nn '" " that we had to go back and finish them," one of the, ofllcers told me. The cars collected three mountain guns and nine machine guna with a quarter mil lion rounds of small-arm ammunition and several boxes of shell. Two of the cars stood by all night to protect the captures, and the remainder re traced their tracks to Solium, to find our Infantry In occupation. The So nuKKi did not venture on Axlza again.

After four hours (In two spells) over the lines, constantly alert and craning to dodge scandalous ly accurate shells and suddenly ap pearing Roches, panting In the thin air at '."O.OOO feet, the boys are, I think, Justified In calling It n day. I have noticed that the coolest men are a good bit let down after a dogged ma chine fight far up In the rarefied air.

HAS HIS SHARE OF THRILLS Gives Vivid Description ef How It Feels to Qo Into Battle for the First Time -"We Licked Them Clesn Off the Map. They Dldnt Have a Look-In" -Telia ef New Treacherous Stunt ef Huns. How It feels to go Into battle la thrllllngly described by Private Bay Conch-ton In a letter to his sister at UhricbKvllle, O. "I JiiKt lately returned from going over the top, and, believe me. It was some experience. It snre was n suc cess. I had my share of thrills. They speak of the day of battle being glo rious Well, It Is, In a way, and. In another. It Is outright hell. I can't quite describe the glorious part of It but when yon have trained and worked for a certain length of time how to shoot, how to attack, and thousand other little things of how to act when In action, you have en dured a lot of hardnhlps learning the stuff. "Then, when the real time comes. yon are craxy to see how things are going to work out, and to see first how badly yon can lick the guy yon have conned for months, and who Is the cause of all your hardships and sufferings. Yon wonder If yon will come through It, and. If not, you have given your life for a great cause and great country. These are some of the things that make the battle glo rious. The Other Side. "Then there Is the other side of it I went 72 hours without water. In fact, I got so thirsty I put stones In my mouth, as they have a certain amount of moisture In them. As for hanger, I did not eat a thing for three days nnd three nights. But yon don't get hungry. There are certain things thnt keep yon from it Once I twaa light In the middle of two barrages, and down as far as I rould get In a shell hole. Well, I never expected to get out of there, so I lighted np a cigarette and thought over my past life. "When I got back to the rest liillet my shirt and breeches were nothing hut a bunch of rags. My hands had bled from blisters from digging In I was some sight and there was not much fight left In me. But, If neces sary, no doubt I could hnve been game. You see, I got a black eye from the dirt thrown by a shell. My helmet was blown to kingdom come, a bad plnce was knocked on the side of my nose. I had two pieces of shrapnel In the right hand and some lodged underneath the arm In the skin. They removed It all with co caine, so It did not amount to much. I did not even go back to the hospi tal. I stayed right there to get my revenge. However, I shall always have one souvenir the side of my nose makes me look different hut am prond of It and consider myself lucky. C.sned Them Up. "As for the fight we licked them clean off the map. They didn't have a look-in. We cleaned up those boys brought op on kultur;' In fact we pave them a little 'culture Amerlcnlne,' and I guess It did not taste very good, for they told ns we were bloodthirsty, nnd I want to say right here that It's d n good manners to be so when you are fighting a people as treacher ous as the Germans. "One of the Hun officers snld: You are Just a bunch of school kids,' This made ns mnd, for we were Just as cool as cucumbers and laughed. Joked and smoked when going right 'over the top,' and called to ench other to know 'How many you got?' My bnby was sure working and I burned up two rifles, so you can see old Henry second was stepping out I believe I got a German for every one of my relatives. "Here Is one of the Germans' new treacherous stunts. They carry little revolver nbout the slie of man's finger nnd It has one .22-cnllbor shell In It They hold up their hands and holler 'kHinernd,' and when they get a chance they nse It on you. They usually turn their backs on you, and when they hold up their hands this lit tie pistol Is down In the palm of their band where you can't Bee It King Salmon Ran Late. Big king salmon, which run in mil lions np the Yukon river every sum mer, were about four weeks late In making their appearance this year. A a result white residents nnd na tives along' the river who depend on the run for their winter food talk ed of salmon famine nnd the horror of a Ashless winter. Delayed winter Ice In the Bering sea at the mouth of the Yukon, It I be lieved here, made It Impossible for the fish to enter the stream. Bering sea ice, this year, according to reports, moved .later than at any time In the last decade. The fish are taken from the river In net and wheel trap and are cored In camp along the stores.

County Treasurer HASTENED JOB FOR MINISTER Youth Couldnt See Any Four Years' Courting if He Had to Vlait Girl en Horseback. Cupid's wings were slightly scorched when the request went forth to leave our automobiles In our garages on Sun day nnd thus aid In saving fuel, says the Indianapolis News. But a youth In Sulllvun county quite loyal to his country and his sweetheart too re membered the days of his father and acted accordingly. When 7 o'clock came he went to the family barn. Ignored the presence of his new roadster, took down his father' ancient saddle, put It on one of the plow horse and gal lantly rode forth. But not far did be ride. Either the horse unaccustomed to a rider or the youth to riding did something which Irritated the other, for soon the youth was prone in the road and the hone was galloping toward home. After a while the young man got np from his prostrate position. Dazedly he looked around him. Then he talked to himself: "My father," he said, "assert ed that that saddle took him to court mother weekly for more than four years. Well, for myself, I'll say there was something radically wrong with father. If I had to ride on that saddle four years to see Nellie well, never mind, I'll propose tonight" - , .
