Tho concussions felt llko ono long Ftring of boxes on tho car, nnd our throats wcro so dry that It hurt to rwallow, which always makes your rare feci better after a strong concus elon. Ono after another of our bojs was slipping to tho grouud and digging his fists Into his ears, and tho rest of them Pat on tho parapet Are step with their heads between their knees and their arms wrapped around their heads. Onr sergeant came to me after a while and began acting Just llko people do at n show, only he shouted Instead of whispered In my car. When people are looking at one show they always want to tell you how good some other show Is, and that was the way with tho sergeant. , Xou should seo what they did to us at St Klol," ho said. "They Just baptized us with the big fellows. They did not know when to stop.' When you see shelling that Is shelling, you will know It, my sop." "Well, If this Is not shelling, whnt tho devil Is It? Are they trying to kid us or are yon, mon vlcuxf which Is a French expression that means something like "old timer." "My son, when you 6cc dugouts caved In, roads pushed all over the map, guns wrecked, bodies twisted up In knots and forty men killed by one shell then you will know you are seeing shelling." Then one of our men sat up straight against the parapet and stared at us and began to shako all over, but we could not get htm to say anything or move. So we knew ho had shell shock. And another man watched him for a while, and then ho began to shake, too. Tho sergeant said that If we stayed there much longer we would not bo fit to repel an attack, so he ordered us Into tho two dugouts we had made In the hole, and only himself and another man stayed outsido on watch. Tho men In the dugout kept asking each other when the bombardment would end, and why we were not rein forced, and what was happening, and whether the Turks would attack us. It was easy to seo why we were not rein forced no body of men could have sot to us from the reserve trenches. Tho communication trenches were quite a distance from us and were battered up at that Some of the men said we had been forgotten and that the rest of our troops had either re tired or advanced und that wo nnd the men in tho trench who had tried to signal us were the only detachments left there. Pretty soon another man and I relieved the two men who were out side on watch, and as be went down into the dugout the sergeant shouted to us that he thought the Turks were afraid to attack, lie also ordered one of us to keep a live eye toward our rear In case any of our troops should try to signal us. When I looked through a llttlo gully at the top of tho hole, toward the other trench, " I could see was barbed wire and smoke and two or three corpses. I began to shiver a little, and I was afraid I would get shell shock, too. So I began to think about Murray and how ho looked when they took him off tho wall. But that did not stop the shivering, so I thought about my grand mother and how she looked the lost tlmo I saw her. I was thinking about her, I guess, and not keeping a very good lookout, when a man rolled over the edge and almost fell on me. lie was from the other trenches. I carried him Into the dugout and then went out again and stood my watch until the relief came. We were doing half-hour shifts. When I got into tho dugout again the man was coming to. He was Just about as near shell shock as I had been by this time I was shivering oaly once in a while, when I did not watch myself.

I did not seo either. Then We nil tig nrcd we wcro forgotten and would not route out of thero alive, and you enn believe me or not, but I dirt nut much rare. Anything would be better than Just staying there In that awful noise with nothing to do, and no water. Our sergeant said he would not nsk any man to attempt to carry the mes sage, because he said It was not only certain death, but absolutely useless. And he began to show that ho was near shell shock himself. Then I began to shiver again, nnd I thought to myself that anything would be better than sitting In this hole wait ing to go "enfard," so I decided to vol unteer. I did not think thero was any chanco to get through, but it seemed as if I Just had to do something, no matter what. I bad never felt that way before, and had never been anxious to "go west" with a shell for company, but I have felt that wny since then several times, I cun tell you. The man was telling us that somoj time before they had seen tho Turks bringing up ammunition from soma storehouses, but they did not come . V. ..... I anywhere near. He said their sergeant wanted our messenger to tell them that, too. Ho would say n few words very fast, then he would shiver again, and his Jaws would clip together and ho would try to ralso his hand, but could not. Then our sergeant asked tho name of tho other sergeant, and when tho man told him he said tho man was senior to himself nnd therefore in command and would have to be obeyed. lie seemed to cheer up n lot after ho said this end did not shiver any more, so I thought I would volunteer then, so I said to him, "Well, mon vleur, do you think we aro seeing real shelling now?" And then I wns going to say I would go, but be looked nt me In a funny way for a second and then said, "Well, my son, suppose you go and find out" I thought ho was kidding roe at first, but then I saw he meant it I thought two tilings about It one was that any- thing wns better than stnylng there, and the other was that the old dugout was a pretty fulr place after all. But I did not say anything to the ser geant or the other men Just went out of the dugout Tho sergeant and pnother man went with me and boost ed me over the back wall of the hole. I lay flat on the ground for n minute to get my bearings, aud then started off. I set my course for where I thought the communication trenches were, to the rlcht and I just stood up and ran, for I figured that as the snclls were falling so thick and It wus open ground I would not have any better chance If I crawled. I tripped several times und went down, and each time thought I was hit, because when I got It In the thigh at Dlxnyido it felt a good deal as though I bad tripped over a rope. And one time when I fell a shell ex ploded near me and I began to shiver again, and I could not go on for a long time. All this time I did not think I would get through, but finally. , when I reached what had been the , communication trench I felt I had done tho worst part of It, and I began to wish very bard that I would get through I was not at all crazy about going west The mouth of the communication trench had been buttered In and the trenches It Joined with were all filled up. There wero rifles sticking out of them In several places, and I thought probably the men had been burled alive In them. But it was too late then, If thcy had been caught, so I climbed over the blocked entrance to the communication trench and started back along it It led up through a sort of gully, nnd I thought It wus a bad place to dig a communication trench In homiiRQ it cavo tho Turks somo- OTHER BUILDINGS BRICK & LUMBER CO.

Tho Turks still had tho range, nnd they wcro sending "n Miell Into thu trench every onco In n while, nnd I was knocked down again, though tho shell was so far nwny that It knocked mo down with force of habit more than anything else. I felt dizzy ami shivered a lot, nnd kept trying to think of Murray or anything else but inyself. So finally I got to tho top of tho llttlo hilt over which tho gully ran, And on tho other sldo I felt almost safe. Just down from tho crest of tho hill was one of our artillery positions, with tho good old '75" giving It to the Turks as fast as they could. I told tho artillery officers what had hap pened, had n drink of water and thought I would tnko n nap. Hut when they telephoned tho message back to division headquarters tho man at the receiver said something to tho olllccr and be told me to stay there and be ready. I thought sur'o he would send mo back to whero I ciuno from and I knew I never could mnke It again, but I did not say, any thing. When I looked around I saw that our real position wus to tho right of i whero the artillery was, and that thero were three Hues of trenches with French Infantry In them. So tho trenches I had come from wcro more llko outposts than anything else, nnd were cut off. I felt pretty sure, then, that the boys In them would never como back alive, because as soon ns their fire let up the Turks would ad vance, nnd to keep them back our guns would bavo to wlpo out our men, nnd it they did not, tho Turks would. At first I was glad 1 had come out, but then I remembered what Uio artillery umcvr Jinu wim nun i iiKun-u i uuiu Davo t0 0 ,)ack nml Btuy .,, hem ofllcer had said and I figured I would or bring them back. Either way there was not ono chance In a hundred that any of us would mako It. Becauso when I got through It was really Just a rolraclo and nobody would have thought It could happen. Then tho olllccr told mo to go bock to tho beach, whero our naval guns were, and that I was detailed to them. May ho you do not think I wus glud? But there was rough work still nhead of me, because when I got behind tho third lino I saw n wide open field that was light gray from tho shell smoko banging over It, and I could see tho flashes where tho big ones wcro doing their work, and I had to go through that field. I fell tlmo and again, sometimes when I thought a shell wan near, and sometimes when 1 had no reason for It only I wns thirsty ugaln, nnd wns shivering all the time, ' and was so' weak I could not have choked n gold- flj,. I do not remember hardly any thing about going through that Held. and you might say tho next thing I knew was when I wok overtaken by a dispatch runner, nnd got In u tin tub nt the side of a motorcycle, nnd was taken to tho guns. I felt ready for a Hip Van Wlnklo nap then, but the officer In command would not let me. Ho said they wero short of gunners the terrific shelling had killed off dozens of them and us ho knew I could point a gun ho bad ordered them over tho telephone to get mo to tho bench as fust as possi ble. JIo spotted Uio two warehouses I have spoken of for mo and said It was up to us to put them out of com mission. Tho gun was a 14-Inch naval, and that looked good to me, so I bucked up n lot. Tho warehouses wcro about 10 or 11 miles uway, I should judge, and about 30 or 40 yards apart I felt very weak, as I havo said, and shivered every onco In a while, on V ,11,1 nnt flilrtlr T fntilil li mutfi , worth whll)l,lnt. nt.

So I said to myself, "This Is ono for you, Murray, old boy, Let's go from here." So I sent that one along and sho landed direct and the warehouse went up In Are and smoke. I felt good then, nnd I laid tho wires on tho other ware- j houso and let her go. But sho was too high and I mado a clean miss. ' Then I was mad, becauso I bad sent that one over for myself. So I got tho cross wires on tho warehouse ugaln and, I said to myself, "This Is not for any body, Just for luck, becauso I uuro havo had plenty of It today." Then tho Julco came through tho wires nnd Inlo thu charge, nnd away sho went, and up wont tho socond warehouse..

AVIioii tlmy tried to sing, to show mo what song It was, I figured lt.wim "Sweet Adeline" they meant. But I do not believe I cumo to, singing, be cause I nuvor sang "Sweet Adeline" L before, tlmt I know of, or any other snug when nnyjiody wan In rango. But I heard It lois of times, ho maybo 1 did Hlug It at that Then I went to sleep feeling fine. Tho next morning thu detachment, from tho Onward wan withdrawn, and I saw somo of the men who hud been In tho two trenches, but I wns not near enough to speak Hi them. So 1 do not know how they got out You never sitw n happier bunch In your life than wo wero when wo piled into the lifeboats and started 'for the Cassard. Tho old ship looked pretty good to us, you can bet, and wo snld If wo never put our hoofs on that place ngaln It would bo soon enough. Wo wcro shelled on our wny out to tho Cassard, and ono boat wns over turned, but tho men wero rescued. Two men In tho launch I was In wero wounded. But we did not pay any attention to tlmt shelling tho Turks might Just an well have been blowing pens at un through a soda straw for till wo cared. I noticed that when wo cumo near tho Cusxnrd tho other boats held up and let our launch get Into tho lend, and that wo circled around thu Can sard's bows und cauio up on tho stur- board side, which was tiniisimt. But I did not think anything of It until I enmo over the hide. Thero wero tho sldo boys lined up, and tho Old Man was there, with the ship's steward beside him. He took tho log book from tho stew ard and showed It to me, and thero wns my iiomo on It. Now when yoa nro punished for anything you aro logged, but I could not figure out what I bad dono to get punished for, so I was very much surprised. But tho Old Mnn stripped mo on tho back mid everybody cheered, nnd then I saw It was not punishment but Just tho op posite. When peoplo ask mo what I havo received my decoration for (Croix do Guerre), I tell them I do not rightly know, and that Is a fact I do not know whether It wns for going back from thoso trenches or for destroying the storehouses. So I nlwnys tell them I got It for working overtime. That Is what tho Limeys say, or If thcy have the Victoria cross they say they got It for being very careless. Ask ono of them mid sec. All of us wero certainly glad to bo aboard tho Cassard again, nnd If any place ever looked llko homo to mo It was tho old ship. Our disunities wero very high and wo were thercforo or dered to put back to Brest Wo hail n great llttlo celebration that night, and next morning weighed anchor anil started back, after clearing for action. I wns still pretty blue about Mur ray, but very much relieved ns to tho safety of myiwn skin, utid I figured that after tho Dardanelles nnd mylnst day thero they had not made tho right bullet for me yet Tho rest of us felt about tho same way und wo wcro sing ing ull tho time.
