Advanced Trenches Deserted.
We now left the village and walked
Into the open advanced trenches. The
most remarkable thing was their utter
desolation. We walked for 100 yards
at a time, past scores and scores of
rifle silts without reelng a man. An
officer explained that troops are not
permitted in open trenches during the
daytime, to ssve tbem needless loss
from shells, which each aide all day
long, in a desultory way, threw Into
the open trenches of the other.
Tho men stayed down in tne sneu-
proof shelters all the day and manned
the trenches at night when attacks
are most feared.
It seemed aa If the Germans could
easily rush those trenches before the
men could he called out to meet them,
but along the sides of every trench
ran one cr two teiepnone wires. Ap
parently one quick order would have
these front trenches lined with men.
We came to one of the points nearest
the German lines, from where the Ger
man trenches seemed a mere stone's
throw. From there French . soldiers
used to crawl out snd fraternise with
the Germans between the lines, but
that now Is forbidden.
Grenades Thrown From Rifles.
The next came to a covered trench
leading to a covered grenade section.
Here a table stood against the outer

In it, one ahead of the other. The
soldiers fastened grenades to the mux

through the protected silt In the roof,
rested the butts In one of the three
sockets, which gave unree different
ranges, ana punea tne trigger. ii
there is a premature explosion they are
saved from Its effects by the muzsle

We continued on into tne long sec

the rifle slits have wires stretcned
across them about three Inches from
the bottom. The soldiers must stick
their rifles out under wire, which pre
vents their overshooting in the night.
These covered trenches are roofed with
logs and covered with two or three
feet of earth. They are proof against

At regular Intervals we passed watch

some lying out above the open trenches

periscopes, all depending; on the loca
