"Well," he apologized, "it took me
some time. I had to kill forty-seven
Germans before I could nnui one wun
a pair of shoes that would fit me."
Then there was the story the Red
Cross man told of the doughboy he
found sitting pensively In a Held

from the German guns were ending
with a wail and burst all auoui.
"What are you thinking about,
Buddy? Making your will? Are you
wondering why you were ever nut
enough to enlist?"
"No." said the doughboy glooming-
ly, "I waB wondering how 1 was ever
nut enough to let a man hold me up
.In Chicago last spring. Mo only had
a .32."
Just how it happened that they
slipped by the guard neither of them
seems to know, but two American
soldiers, although Intending to drive
from the front lines to the rear, bo-
came tangled un as to directions and

. They reached a point 20 kllometors
beyond the American outposts before
they were awar0 that they were
going In the direction opposite their
destination. Then upon onterlng a
town, they rounded a corner and
stood face to face with a German
major and four enllBted men. The
Americans glared at the Germans and
the Germans glared at the Ameri
cans. After several moments of observa
tion, the Americans turned around
and came' 'back, choosing a now
route, which took them through some
townB partially Inhabited, but where
there wero no Gormans. In every
town they passed through they were :
forced to Btop and talk with the in-1
hoJbitantB, and onco tho entire fo-
male population kissed them. Every-'

When the Allies trumpet sounds
Plash tho news that peace abounds.
When the Yankees made their dash
And cut the Boches Into bash.
Old Hindenbure. he soon got out
When the Rainbows hit him In the
snout.
When Foch got up to make his Speech
The Boches' kneos began to squeak.
(Erzberger thoueht the terms severe
Foch hit him square below the ear.
This brought the Boche's to their feet
And all acknowledged their defeat.
Old Bill's big plans were all upset;
France and Belgium made hi in

When he saw his Empire fall,
He drank the worm-wood and the

He bid his throne a sad farewell,
And got a berth way down In hell.
