out of the shelter to meet the news

you put a hole through it?" was asked
of one of the riflemen.
"It looks so. They don't put them np
very often, sir," was the answer.
Two hundred and fifty yards away
was a wall of sandbags. The bare field
between the two lines was as lifeless
as a desert and for all one could see,
the German breastwork was not occu
pied by a slnele human being. But
there, as on the British side, sharp
shooters were waiting and olficers
were watching through the refracting
mirrors of the periscopes.
Attack Alivaya Awaited.
For three months the trenches have
remained in the same position, and
tiever a moment in all that time, here
as elsewhere along the line, but some
one is on the lookout and the reserves
re ready for an attack.
"Here we will be until the big push
comes." say the men. By the "big push"
they refer to the movement when the
new British force is in the trenches.
At night German patrols creep out
to s it the British are up to any
thing new and the British do likewise.
Sometimes some of the men are killed.
' Those who are not on watch are
lounging on beds of straw under the
timber roofs. To the rear, there are
many more shelters where officers and
men are quartered. One old South

Profanity too foully.
At night the work in the neighbor
hood of the trenches is done. Across
the Arc zone behind the trenches, food
' and timbers and everything needed in
the trenches is carried up by hand in
a wallow of mud. Yet one hears no
one growling or swearirg when it
would seem that human irritation must
pave an escape valve.
"Profanity comes too high," said a
soldier. "The Gerboy s may hear you
ami turn looae. It may not only cost
ou your life, but your pals." Anyone
who has been much with the British
army on campaign has heard the same
remark many times and spoken in the
l.inie language: it had a peculiar ap
peal. , With darkness falling over the flat
country and the buildings becoming
shadowy, the correspondents walked
away from the cover of a village with
tho commanding officer of that sec
tion of the front with the rattle of a
machine gun growing louder toward
the trench. Whenever anyone goes to
the front he is bound to hear the ma

object in the dark?" queried a corre

Perhaps perhaps not." the officer
replied. "The gun is laid for the top
of their trench. We don't hold down
the fire too much, as we want the
Germans to know we are on deck."
"Are we In bullet range yet?" was
"Kather 500 yards. That's why we
don't walk up in the daytime. The
flares you see are doing up from the
German trenches." replied the officer.
These flares, like Fourth of July
rockets, threw a glare over the sodden
fields and revealed the faces cf the
correspondents and the officer and
outlined their figures.
"In that way they keep watch to
ee that we are not creeping up for
an attack." the officer added.
.'lea Neat Amidst Mud.
Another 300 yards of plunging In

into the-wet earth behind tiers of sand
bags and were walking on a board

enough for a parade. Neatness under
any conditions is a point with the Brit

to it. It is amazing how Private
Thomas Atkins In this sea of mud
keeps dear of It.
"If the men get careless of their ap

officers, "this means carelessness in the
trenches, which would be fatal. Thor

Then the correspondents left the
trench and wallowed in the mud back
to a point in the road outside the bullet
range, where a column of sturdy sol
diers was waiting before going up for
their turn in the trenches. -Behind them
were supplies for the trenches and an
ambulance to care for any wounded
who had accumulated during the day
in the trenches, or those hurt during
the entrance of relief parties or the de
parture of the men relieved when the
German rapid-fire guns sent out a
spray of bullets in the hope of finding
a target under cover of the night
The tired men who come out of the
trenches find baths and clean, clothes
awaiting them and have notihng to do
but rest until they return to the
watch, for the British army regards
the cure of each man's physical well
being as the prime essential.-
The trenches to the observer, who
sees the British army for the first
time, do not supply the most interest
ing feature. If one seeks picturesque
ness it may be found on the road
where the French flank and the Brit
ish line Join, where one sees the East
Indians, a trotting battery of French
artillery, Belgian reservists at work
on the road and the British In khaki.

There seems little unnecessary fight

MODJESKTS GROVE CUT.
Jesse Sharkey Located by Laborers He
Ordered to Do Work, Says He
Was Hired by Another Man.
Jesse Sharkey, of Sacramento street
and Union avenue, arrested Monday,
the police say. admits he is the man
who ordered workmen to cut down the
tjeautlful grove of fir trees on six lots
owned by Ilalph ModJesKi. tne promi
nent bridge ensrineer, on Knott street,
in Irvington. Whether Sharkey acted
on his own responsibility in hiring the
workmen, without the knowledge of
Mr. Modjeski. or whether he had ac
complices is a question that will be
investigated. He says he was employed
for $75 to do the work, but the police
doubt his story and question his san
ity. When Sir. Modjeski discovered that
his $25,non building site had been de
nuded of its stately trees, which to him
were its chief attraction, he Immedi
ately began an investigation through
his attorneys. Piatt & Piatt. Three
laborers who cut down the trees were
not suspected of acting maliciously.
They had been told to go to Mr. Mod
jeski for the 50 which had been
promised to them for doing the work,
and they went, apparently In good
failh, to fret their money. It was dif
ficult to make the laborers realize that
they had been duped, but they agreed
to aid in finding the man who had
Monday the three workmen told
P. L. Fales. an attorney in the firm of
Piatt & Piatt, that they had located

sworn to by Mr. Fales, charging tres

Sharkey declared that he had been
offered $75 to cut down the trees, the
offer coming from a man he didn't
know. He said he was a landscape

The detectives say they are inclined
to doubt Sharkey's story. The records

STORAGE APPLES MOVING
Government Kinds Firms Withhold
WASHINGTON. March 1. According
to investigations conducted by tne or
flee of Markets. United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, there was an in
crease in the movement of cold stor
age apples during January as compared
with December. It is impossible to
sive the total quantities of boxes and
barrels in storage on February l. be
cause many firms withhold information
as to their holdings. However, It l
thought that a sufficient number are
co-operating with the Office ol Mar
kets to warrant conclusions as to the
total movement throughout the country.
Basing estimates upon tho returns
from a large number of commercial
apple cold storages and granting the
conditions for this number are repre
senttitive of the whole, it appears (1)
that holdings on February 1. 1915. were
28.4 per cent greater than on the same
date two years ago; (2) that 2a.2 per
cent of the total holdings have been
moved since December 1, the decrease
of barreled stock being 28.4 per cent
and boxes -1 per cent; 3) that during
January 17 per cent of barreled apples
and 10.6 per cent of boxed apples were
taken out of cold storage, the total de
crease on the basis of holdings Decem
ber 1 being 15.6 per cent.
It was not thought that the demand
for cold storage apples In January
would be much greater than in De
cember, owing to the fact, as pointed
out in a previous report, that the large
supply of common storage stock, to
gether with Christmas purchases,
would restrict the movement of apples
from cold storage during last month.
The attention of those interested is
called again to the fact that practi
cally all common storage apples, as a
rule, pass Into consumption by the first
of February. If this condition has
been true of the present season, it
thought that the movement of cold
storage apples will be very large dur
ing February and March. The supply
certainly Is bountiful and, as the result
of low prices and a large demand, it is
thought the consumption during tne
next few months will be sufficient to
exhaust the supply.
The advisability of moving the
stocks as rapidly as possible is urged
upon growers and dealers, so that the
unusually large holdings may diminish
sufficiently to prevent disaster in April

Salandra went yesterday to Gaeta to

thanked the Premier for being present
and concluded with these words:
"If the leaders tell us to stay we

we will march, "always and everywhere

These words created such enthusiasm
that Premier Salandra rose and em

The Premier, in a reply to General
Morra's remarks, said that, although
it might be "with anguish." all Italians
would do their duty with God's help,
under the King's orders for the glory
of the fatherland.
Many of those present expressed the
opinion that the words "with anguish"
meant that negotiations to have the
Italian national aspirations satisfied
and the country's rights recognized had
failed and that thus there must be re

object. Premier Salandra received an
