Arguments take place between tha
"quarter" nnd tho plntoon noncotn, but
tho former always Winn out. Tommy
t n)'H tho "quarter" got his Job because
' ho was ii burglar In civil life.
Then I sprend tho waterproof sheet

The corpornl was smoking n fag. I

"Six louven, nineteen men. Let's nee,

Tho four that got ntuck mndo n howl,

"What do you cnll thin, n lonf of

"Well, don't lilnmo me, I didn't bako

Ho panned nround tho Jnm, "d

Thu corporal avoided a row by miy

Tho corporal looked his gratitude.
"Chooso, pounds, two."
Tho corporal borrowed n Jackknlfo

sliced tho checso each slicing bring
Ing forth a pert remark from tho on

"ItalHlnH, ounces, eight."
IJy this ttmo tho corporal's nerves
bud gono west, nnd In despair ho enld
that tho raisins wcro to bo turned over
to tho cook for "duff" (plum pudding).
This decision elicited a Uttlo "grous

"Jllncutts, ttnn, one."
Wlth bis borrowed Jnckknlfe, tho

Tommy In suspicious when It comes to

When tho Innuo Is finished the cor

When be goes Into tho flro trench
(front line), Tommy's menu tnkes a
tumble. Ho cnrrlcs In bin haversack
what tho government calls emergency
or Iron rations. Jfliey sru not supposed
to bo opened until Tommy dies of star
vation. They consist of ono tin of
bully beef, four biscuits, a Uttlo tin
which contnlns ten, sugar nnd Oxo
cubes (concentrated beef tablets).
These nro only to be used when tho
enemy establishes a curtain of shell
fire on the communication trenches,
thus preventing tho "carrying In" of
rations, or when In on attack a body
of troops bus been cut off from Its bnso
The rations are brought up nt night
by the company trnnort. This Is n
section of tho company In charge of
the quartermaster sergeailt, composed
of men, mules and Umbers (two
wheeled wagons), which supplies Tom
my's wants while In tho front line.
They are constantly under shell (Ire.
The rations nro unloaded at tho en
trance to the communication trenches
and are "carried In" by men detailed
for that purpose. The quartermaster
sergeant ueer goes Into the front-Unit
trench. He doesn't hitve to, and I havo
never beard of one volunteering to
Tho compnny ncrgennt mnjor sorts
the rations and sends them In.
Tommy's trench rations consist of all
the bully beef he can eat, biscuits,
cheese, tinned butter (sometimes 17
men to n tin), Jam or mnrmnlade, nnd
occasionally fresh bread (ten to a
loaf). When It Is possible ho gets ten
When things are quiet, and Fritz Is
behaving like a gentleman, which sel
dom hnppeus, Tommy has the opportu
illy or making dessert. This Is
'trench pudding." It Is made from
liroken biscuits, condensed milk, Jam
il little water added, slightly flavored
with mud put Into n canteen and
conked over a Uttlo spirit stove known
as Tommy's cooker."
(A Arm In Illlghty widely advertises
these cookers us a necessity for the
men In tho trenches. Oulllhlo people
buy'them ship them to the Tommies,
who, Immediately upon receipt of siuno
throw them over tho parapet. Some
times a Tommy falls for the ad, and
uses tho cooker In n dugout to tho dis
gust and discomfort of tho other oc
cupants.) This mess In stirred up In n tin nnd
allowed to simmer over the flames
from tho cooker until Tommy decides
Unit It linH reached nufllrlent (gluellko)
consistency, Hu tnkes his lmyonet and
by moans of tho hnndlo carries tho
mesa up In tho front trench to cool.
After It bns cooled off ho tries to ent It.
Generally ono or two Tommies In n
section bnvo cast-iron Htomnchs nnd
tho tin In noon emptied. Once I tasted
trench pudding, but only once.
In addition to tho regular ration Is
buo Tommy uses another channel to
cnlnrgo tils menu.

Owing to tho shortngo of ryo need

Ityo Is practically tho only grain
which can bo grown on dry land, and
many of tho homostoadors depond

yoar's crap was a failure out many
of tho suttlnrs stayed on through tho
winter, hoping t,hls year's planting
would ho bettor. Tholr expectations,
howuvor, havo boon blighted by tho
scarcity of sood, It being a physical
Impossibility to procuro moro than a
