message was that the First, Second

Aftsr That Thay Really Dgan to Mako
Soldiers of Us.
AVo leamed more tho first week of our
actual training In Rugland than wo
did from November to April lu Cana
da. I make this statement without
fear that any otflccr or man of tho
Cauudlun forces alive today will dis
agree with we, and I submit It for the
thoughtful consideration of the gen
tlemen who believe that our own
armies can be prepared for service
hero at home.
In this war every man has got to bo
a xpeclallbt. He's got to know one
thing better than anybody else except
those who havo had Intensive Instruc.
tlon In tho samo branch. And, beside
that, he's got to bare effective genera!
knowledge of all the specialties In
which his fellow soldiers have been
particularly trained. I can Illustrate
this. Immediately upon our return
rem lint leuvo In Kngbmd no were
divided into sections for training lu
eight bpocialtlos.. They were: Homblng.
sniping, scouting; machine gun fight
ing, signaling, trench mortar operation,
bayonet fighting und stretchur bearing.
I was selected for special training in
bombing, probably because I was sup.
jiosed, as an American and a baseball
player, to be expert In throwing AVith
tho othor men picked for training In
tho same specialty. I was sent to Al
dersbot, and there for three weeks,
twelve hours a duy, 1 threw bombs,
atudlcd bombs, read about bombs, took
bombs to pieces to seo what made
them tick und put them together ugaln
nnd did practically everything else
that you could do with a bomb, except
Then I was ordered back along with
the other men who had gained this
Intimate acquaintance with tho entire
bomb family, and we wero put to work
teaching the entire battalion all that
wo had learned. When we were not
teaching we were under Instruction
ourselves by tho men who had taken
apodal training In other branches.
Also at certain periods of tho day we
had phyalcal training und rifle prac
tice. Up to the time of our urrlvul in
England Intenslvo training hud been
merely a Hue phruso with us. I Hiring
our stay thero it was a detlulte und

started for headquarters, expecting to
be received with applause and olntcd
out ns heroic examples. We couidu't
even get up to give In our names. The
whole battalion hnd gone up ahead of
us. They heard about It first. That
was tho spirit of the Canadians. It
was about this time that a story went
round concerning nn Kugllsh colonel
who had been called upon to furnish
volunteers from his outfit to milaco

"Now, all who duu't want to volun
teer step three jkk-os to the rear."
In our battalion sergeant ami even
otBcora offered to go as privates. Me
Parland and I were not accepted; our
volunteers wont at owe, and we wero
ro-citforced up to strength by draft
from the fifth Canadian til vision,
which was then forming In Itnjtland.
In July, when we were twins keK
on the rifle noises most of the Mm,
all leave was stopped, and we wens
ordered to bold ourvelve In readiness
to go overseas. In the latter part of
the month we started. We sailed from
Southampton to Havre on a big trans,
pd-rt, escorted all the way by destroy
ers. As we landed we gut our find
sight of the harvest of war. A big hos
pital on tho quay was tilled with
wounded men. We had twenty-four
hours In what they called n "rest
camp." Wo blcpt on cobblestones lu
shacks which wero so utterly comfort
less that It would be' mi insult to a
Kentucky thoroughbred to call them
stables. Then we wero on the way to
the Helglau town of rupuiinglio. which

which wore murk ml In KreiH.ii, "Hlht

In the Front Trencbrs.
AVo got Into I'operliiKho at 7 a. m.,
and the scouts had led us Into tho
front trenches at 2 the next morning.
Our position was to the left of St. Iilol
and was known ns "the island," be
causo it had no supjwrt on either Hank.
On the left wero tho Yser canal and
the bluff which forms Its bank. On
tho right wero 300 yards of battered
down trenches, which bad bcou rebuilt
twieo and blown In again each tlmo
by the (Jerman guus. Kor somo rea
son, which I never (pilto understood,
the Germans wero able to drop what
seamed a tolerably large proportion of
tho output of the Krupp works' on this
particular spot whenever they wuntcd
to. Our high command had concluded
that It was untenuble, and so we. nu
ono Bide of it. nnd the Ilrltlsh, on the
other, had to Just keep It scouted and
protect our separate flanks. Another
linmo they bad for that position was
the "bird cage." That was because
tho first fellows who moved Into It
mnde themselves nice and comfy and
put up wiro nettings to prevent any
ono from tossing bombs In on them
Thus, when the Germans stirred up
tho spot with an accurate shower of
"whiz bangs" and "coal boxos," tho
same being thirteen pounders und six
Inch shells, that wire netting presented
a spectacle of utter Inndemincy which
hadn't been cjuulcd lu this wur-
