Over the Top.
On my second trip In tho trendies

wo went to go over the top nnd lake

follows : "At eluven n wiring pnrty will

our nrtlllery will open up with nu In

nnd wnn surprised to seo how fnut the

rifle. Ai tho hand on my wntch

Tho shells from our guns were speed

line. With ono accord tho men
aprnng up on tho flro step nnd looked
over tho top In tho direction of tho
Oermnn trenches. A lino of bursting
holt lighted up No Man' T.nnd. Tho
lln was terrific nnd tbv ground trcm

and bashing In dugouta or funk holes.
Then Frltx got busy.
Their shells went nercnmlng over
tiend, nlmed In tho direction of tho
Hart from our hnttorlcs. Trench mor
tnrn started dropping "Minnies" In
our front line. Wo clicked sevcrnl ens
unltlo. Then they nuddcnly conned.
Our nrtlllery had taped or silenced
During tho bombnrdment you could
almost rend a nowspupor In our trench,

against tho pnrndoa of tho trench nnd
It appeared llko a hugo monster. You
could hardly hear yourself think. When
nn order wna to bo panned down tho
trench you had to yell It, using your
linnda nn a funnel Into tho enr of tho
man sitting next to yon on tho flro atop.
In about twenty mlnutea a gcneroui

ing tho rum, which tasted llko varnish
and acnt a shudder through your

wna pulling nwny nt nn unllghtcd fag.
Thon enmo tho word, "Throo nilnutefl

tnuvo to tho twelve, then n dead si
lence, It hurt. ISveryono looked up
to noo what hnd happened, but not for
long. Hhnrp whlntlo blasts rung out
nlong Iho trench, nnd with n cheer tho
men Ncnimliled up tho bidders. Tho
bullets wero cradling ovnrhend, nnd
occasionally n miirhlno gun would rip
and tear tho top of tho Handling para
pet. How I got up thnt bidder I will
never know. Tho first ten feet out In
front wiih iigony. Then wo pnssed
through limes In our bnrbed wlro. I
know I wiim running, but could feel no
motion below tho wnlst. Patches on
tho ground seemed to Hunt to tho rear
an If I were on n treadmill nnd iiccu
ery wns rushing pnst me. The Our
miins bad put n bnrrngo of shrapnel
across No Mini's I.aud, nnd you could
henr tho pieces nlnp tho ground about
After I had passed our barbed wlro
nml irotten Into No Man's Land a
Tommy nbout fifteen feet to my right
front turned nround nnd looking In my
direction, put tits hand to his mouth
nnd yelled something which I could not
mnkn out on account of tho notno from
tho bursting shells, Then hn coughed,
Mumbled, pitched forward nnd lay still.
Ills body seemed to float to tho renr
of me. I could henr shniti crocks In
tho nlr nbout inc. Thcso wero cnused
by pnsslng rlllo bullets. Frequently,
to my right nnd left, little spurt of
dirt would rlno Into the nlr nnd n rico
chet bullet would whl no on Itn wny.
If n Tommy should seo one of these
little sinirts In front of him, ho would
tell the nurso nbout It Inter. Tho

Men on my right nnd left would
atumblo nnd fall. Homo would try to
get up, while others remnlned huddled
nnd motionless. Then smnnhed-up
barbed wlro enmo Into view nnd
seemed curried on n tide to the renr.
Huddenly, In front of mo 'loomed n
bnshed-ln trench nbout four feet wide.
Queer-looking forms llko mud turtles
wero SoHinbllng up Its wall. One of
these forms seemed to slip nnd then
rolled to tho bottom of the trench. I
Men pod across this Intervening npnee.
tiio man to my icu seemed io pnuso in
midair, then pitched bend down Into
tho Oermnn trench. I Inughed out loud
In my delirium. Upon nllghtlng on tho
other sldo of tho trench I enmo to with
a sudden Jolt. Illght In front of mo
loomed n glnnt form with a rifle which
looked nbout ten feet long, on the end
of which seemed seven bnyoncts. Theso
flashed In tho nlr In front of mo. Then
through my mind flnshed tho admoni
tion of our bnyonot Instructor back In
Illlghty. lie had snld, "whenever you
get In n chnrgo nnd run your bayonet
up to tho hilt Intoen Oermnn tho Fritz
will fall. Pcrhups your rlflo will bo
wrenched from your grnsp. Do not
wnsto tlmo, If tho bnyonot Is fouled
In his equipment, by putting your foot
on his stomach nnd tugging ut tho rlflo
to extricate tho bayonet. Hlmply
press tho trigger nnd tho bullet will
freo It.; In my present situation this
wns the logic, but for tho llfo of mo
I could not remember how ho hnd tojd
mo to get my bnyonet Into tho Oer
mnn. To mo this wns tho pnrnmount
Issue. I closed my eyes nnd lunged
forwnrd. My rlflo wns torn from my
hands, I must hnvo gotten tho Oer

About twenty feet to my left front
wan n hugo l'nisstnn nenrly six feet
four Inches In height, n fine specimen
of physical mnnhood. Tho bnyonet
from his rlflo wns missing, but ho
clutched tho barrel In both hands nnd
wns swinging the butt nround Ids bond.
I could almost henr tho swish of tho
butt passing through tho nlr. Threo
llttlo Tommies wero cngnged with him.
They looked llko pigmies nlongiddo of
tho Prussian. Tho Tommy on tho left
was gradually circling to tho renr of
his opponent. It wns a funny sight to
seo them duck tho swinging butt nnd
try to Jab blm nt tho snino tlmo. Tho
Tommy nearest mo received tho butt
of tho Ocrmnn's rlflo In n smashing
blow below tho right tcmplo. It
smashed his hend llko nn eggshell. Ho
'pitched forward on his sldo and n con
vulsive shudder run through his body.
Meanwhile tho other Tommy hnd
gained tlio rear of tho Prussian. Sud
denly about four Inches of bnyonot
protrudod from tho throat of tho Prus
sian soldier, who etaggored forward
and fell. I will never forget tho look
of blank astontshment that caino over
Then something hit mo In the left
shoulder nnd my left sldo wont numb.
It felt ns If n hot poker wns being
driven through me. I felt no pnln
Just a sort of nervous shock. A bny
onet hod pierced mo from the rear, I
foil backward on tho ground, but wna
not unconscious, bocnuso I could seo
dim objects moving nround mo. Then
a flush of light In front of my eyes nnd
unconsciousness. Something hnd hit
mo on tho hend. I hnvo novor found

I dreamed I wna being tossed nbout
In nu open boat on n heavlug sea and
