JAMES A. GREEN IS
CALLED BY DEATH
Tho next cvi'iiliiK we were relieved
by the th brigade, and once again
returned to rest billets. Upon arriving
at these billets we were given twenty
four hours In which to clean up. I lnul
Just finished getting the mud from my
uniform when the orderly sergeant ln
formed me that my name was In orders
to leave, and thnt I was to report to
the orderly room In the morning for or
ders, transportation and rations.
1 nearly had a fit, hustled about
packing up, tilling my pack with sou
venirs such as shell heads, dud bombs,
nose caps, shrapnel bolls, and n Prus
sian guardflinnn's helmet. In fact, be
fore I turned In thnt night, I hnd every
thing' ready to report at the orderly
room at nine tho next morning.
I wns the envy of the whole section,
swanking around, telling of the good
ttaie I wns going to have, the places I
would visit, and the real, old English
beer I Intended to guzzle. Sort of
rubbed It Into them, because they all
do It, and now that It was my turn, I
took pains to get my own back.
At nine I reported to the cnptnln. re
ceiving my travel order nnd pass. He
asked me how much money I wnnted ' enr leave,
Beastly rotten, I know." Then he left.
A dend silence resulted. Then men
started to curse, threw their rllles on
the floor of the car; others said noth
ing, seemed to be stupelled. while some
had the tears running down their
cheeks. It wns u bitter disappointment
How we blinded nt tho engineer of
that train; It was all his fault (so we
reasoned) ; why hadn't he speeded up a
little or been on time, then we would
have gotten off before tho order ar
rived? Now It was no Blighty for us.
That return Journey wns misery to
us; I Just can't describe It.
When we got back to rest billets, we
found that our brigade was In thr
trenches (another agrvonble surprise)
nnd that an attack was contemplated
Seventeen of the forty-one will novel
get another chance to go on leave;
they were killed lu tho attack. Jusl
think If that train lind been on time,
thov seventeen would still bo alive.
I fin'-' to tell you bow I was kidded
Dy the boys when I got back, but It wns
good and plenty.
Our machine gun compnny took over
their part of the line at seven o'clock,
the night ufter I returned from my
to draw. I glibly answered. "Three
hundred francs, sir;" he Just us glibly
handed mc one hundred.
Reporting nt brigade headquarters,
At 3:30 the following morning three
waves went over nnd captured the flrst
nd second German trenches. Tho
machine gunners went over with tho

in tlio County.
(From Thursday's Dally.)
James A. Green, for-the past threo
years a resident ot this city, and for
moro than twenty years a resident
of tho county, died at his homo last
night of pneumonia, after an Illness
extending over several weeks.
Mr. Green moved to this city from
Redmond, where he had conducted a
livery stablo for several years, about
threo years ago. About a year ago
ho engaged In tho merchants' deliv
ery business here, operating two
cars, ono ot which ho drove. About
six weeks ago ho was taken III with
a touch of pneumonia. Ills attend
ing physician cautioned him about
resuming work, but bolng ambitious
ho disregarded tho physician's ad
vlco And again took up lift route.
Two weeks later ho was again bed
fast. Recovering, as ho believed,
sufficiently to rcautno his labors, ho
went back to tho dellvory business,
and again last Tuesday was strlckon,
his condition becoming gradually
worso until ho died at 7 o'clock last

he wasn't going with us.

In the best of spirits. We even loved
the Germans, we were feeling so happy.
Our Journey to seven days' bliss In
Blighty had commenced.
The ride In the lorry lasted about
two hours; by this time we were cov

road, but didn't mind, even If we were
At the railroad station nt F we
reported to un ofllcer, who had n white
band around his arm, which rend "It.
T. O." (Royal Transportation Olllcer).
To us this ofllcer wiis Santa Cluus.
The sergeunt In charge showed him
our orders; he glanced through them
and said: "Make yourselves comfort
able on the platform and don't leave;
the train Is liable to be along In live
minutes or five hours."
It came In five hours, n string of
eleven match boxes on big, high
wheels, drawn by a dinky little engine
with the "con." These match boxes
were cattle cars, on the sides of which
was painted the old familiar sign,
"Hommes -10, Chcvnux 8."
The It. T. O. stuck us all Into one
car. We didn't care; It was as good
09 n Pullman to uJ.
Two days we spent on thnt train,
bumping, stopping, Jerking ahead, nnd
sometimes sliding back. At three sta
tions we stopped long enough to make
some tea, but were unable to wash, so
when we arrived at B , where wo
were to embark for Blighty, we were
as black as Turcos and, with our un
shaven faces, we looked like a lot of
tramps. Though tired out, we were
We had packed up, preparatory to
detraining, when n R. T. O. held up his
hand for us to stop where wo were

Dead Bodies Everywhere.

bunches of twisted barbed wire lying
about, shell holes everywhere, trench
all bashed In, parapets gone, nnd dead
bodies, .why, that ditch was full of
them, theirs nnd ours. It wns n regu

ribly from our shell fire, while others
were wholly or partly buried In the

must have been killed Just as tie run
his bayonet through the German.
Rllles nnd equipment were scattered
nbout, and occasionally' n steel helmet
could bo seen sticking out of the mud.
At one point, Just In the entrance to
n communication trench, wns a stretch
er. On this stretcher n German was
lying with a white bondage around his
knee, near to him lay one of the
stretcher-benrors. tho red cross on Ids
arm covered with mud and his helmet
filled with blood nnd brains. Closo by,
sitting up against tho wall of tag
trench, with head resting on his chest,
was the other stretcher-bearer. He
seemed to be alive, the posture was so
natural and cosy; but when I got
closer I could see a large, Jagged hole
in bis temple. The three must have
been killed by the same shell-burst.
The dugouts were nil smashed In and
knocked nbout, big square-cut timbers
splintered Into bits, walls caved In and

our crew we managed to set up our
machine gun. Ono of tho legs of the
tripod was resting on tho chest of a
half-burled body. When tho gun wan

body was breathing. This was cuused
by the excessive vibration.
Threo or four feet down tho trench,
nbout three feet from the ground, a
foot was protruding from the eurth,

Wo lived, ato nnd slept In that trench
with (ho unburled dead for six dayH.
It was awful to watch their faces be
come swollen and discolored. Towards
the last tho stench was llerce.
What got on my nerves the most was
that foot sticking out of tho dirt. It
seemed to me, nt night, In tho moon
light, to be trying to twlHt around.
Several times this Impression was. so
strong that I went to It and grasped It
in both hands, to seo If I could feel it
I told this to tho man who had tmed
It for n hatrack Just luforo I lay down
for it little nap, as things were quiet,
and 1 needed it rest pretty badly.
When I woke up the foot was gone.
Il! had cut It off with our chain saw
out of the spare parts' box, and had
plastered tint stump over with mud.
During tho next two or three days,
before we were relieved, I missed that
foot dreadfully; seemed its If I had
suddenly lost a chum.
I think the worst thing of nil was to
watch the rats, at night, and some
times In tho day, run over and piny
nbout among the dead.
Near our gun, right across the para
pet, could be seen tho body of a Ger
man lieutenant, the head aud anus of
which were hanging Into our trench.
Tho man who had cut off the foot used
to sit and carry on it one-sided conver
sation with this olllcer, used to nrguo

wrong. During all of thl monologue
I never heard bin say anything out of
