Back on April 6. 1917, the I-ough-

Chicago, was a-twltter over the dec­
laration of war. Harry, the eldest
ton of Mr. nnd Sira. Stephen II. Lcugh-
nuti. enlisted that day.
In First Ten Thousand.
The next day he said good-by to his
younger brother. Stephen, ami left for
Texas. In a short time be went across
among the first 10 090 Yanks to reach
France. He was among the first 1,000
to fight the Huns and among the first
eleven to be captured.

mission. became a patriotic .falsifier
by telling the reeruitiug officers that
he was 18, and Joined the army. He,
too, went over and did his part In
the fight.
Came pence. Harry was released
from a German prison and named a*
a member of the president's guard of
honor at the peace conference. Steve,
with his detachment I d Luxemburg,
obtained a furlough and went to see
Paris. It was there that they met
after a span of two years.
Emotion Is taboo In the American
expeditionary forces, but the gruff sol­
diers who saw the reunion between
the two young brothers admit they
temporarily lost all interest In the
fourteen points and freedom of the
seas. The colonel himself tossed his
brand new cigar out of the window
and remarked he’d better be going
to write some letters home.
Harry, after enlisting, got across In
three months, fought on the Lorraine
front and was captured November 3.
Transferred front camp to camp, he
finally got to the “strafe” camp at
Tuchel, where he was kept in under­
ground quarters. There were 43,000
Russians there. It was their duty to
haul logs a distance of fourteen miles
each day. Food consisted chiefly of
thin potato soup. Through mediation
of the Red Cross, he was removed to
a camp near Baden. A month after
the armistice he was released. It re­
quired one month at a base hospital In
Vichy to regain his strength partly.

ment to the peace conference guard.

my barracks looking for me. I was
relieved before noon on Friday, snd
when I arrived at barracks, outside
Paris, they all said my brother Steve

Christians wttlffn the boundaries of

years ago, at the Instance of Russia.
Not one of these hundreil promises has

indicated by the fact that all the treat­

Kvery time the European powers saved
Turkey from dismemberment, the

And the school bells are not ringing;
Where the children are full of glee,
T h at’s the wav for Polly and me.
All the birds are singing.
All the bee* are winging
Over the wide world you can see;
That's the wav for Polly and me.
Where the lilies grow the sweetest, ^
And the gardens are the neatest;
Up the river o ’er the lea,
T h at'» the way for Polly and me.
We gather flowers here and there.
Pick the pretty daisies fair;
Then go right on till we come to the
That's the way for Polly nnd me.
Then big Rover takes a swim.
While we're swinging on a limb;
Tli «» ii home we go for tea.

Then we sleep in the hummock by day,
When we are ail tired of play;
We can hear the busy bee,
