SPRING CLEANING TLME 18 HERE.
It a houso needs spring cleaning,

winter of Indoor life and heavy food?

ness, bad breath, bloating, gas or
constipation, when relief can be so
easily had. Foley Cathartic Tablets

up tho liver. Sold everywhere.
The second day that wo were In the
regular camp the Germans strung
barbed wire all around our barracks.
They told us wc had a case of blnck
typhus among us. This was nothing
mora nor less than a bluff, for not one
of us hud typhus, but they put up the
wire, nevertheless, and we were not
allowed to go out.
One day when I was loafing around
our barracks door nnd not having any
thing particularly Important to do, I
packed a pice hard snowbnll and limit
ed It neatly behind .the ear ot n little
sentry not far away. When he looked
around he did not blow his whistle but
began hunting for tho thrower. This
was strange In n German sentry and I
thought- ho must be pretty good stuff.
mien ho looked around, however, all
ho saw was a man staggering around
as If. he wero drunk. Tho man was
the ono who had done the throwing, all
right, but the sentry could not be sure
of it, for surely no man would stay
out In the open nnd Invite accidents
llko that But still, who hai done It?
So 1 Just kept stnggerlug around,
nnd tho sentry enrae np to me nnd
looked mo over pretty hard. Then I
thought for the first time that things
might go hnrd on me, but I figured
that If I quit the play nctlng It would
be all over. So I daggered right up
to the sentry nnd looked nt him drunk
only, expecting every moment to get
one from the bayonet.
But he was so surprised thnt nil ho
could do was stare. So I stared buck,
pretending thnt I saw two of him, and
otherwise acting foolish. Then I guess
he realized for the first time that the
chances of anybody being drunk In
thnt camp were small nt least for the
prisoners. Ho was rubbing his car
all the time, but finally the thought
seeped through the Ivory and he began
to laugh. I laughed, too, and the first
thing you know he had me doing It
again thnt Is, the Imitation. One
snowball was enough, I figured.
I used to talk to him quite often
after that. We had no particular
lovo for each other, but ho was gamer
than the other sentries, nnd he did not
call mo schwelnhund every time he saw
me, so we got on very well together.
His name must have been Schwartz, I
guess, but it sounded like "Swatts" to
me, so Swatts he was, and I was
"Chink" to him, as everybody else
called me that
One day he asked me if I could
speak French, and I said yes. Italian;
yes. Russian; yes. No matter what
language he might have mentioned I
would have said yes, because I could
smell something in the wind, and I
was curious. Then he told me thnt If
I went to the hospital and worked
mere, i migni get Dctter meals ana
would not have to go so far for them,
and that my knowing all the languages
I said I did would help me a greut
ways toward gettlpg the Job.
Evidently he had been told to get a
man for tho place; because ho ap
pointed me to it then nnd there. lie
put me to work right away. We went
over to one of tho barracks, where a
case of sickness hod been reported,
and found that the Invalid was a big
Barbadoes negro named Jim, a fire
man from the Voltaire. At ono time
Jim roust, have, weighed 250 uounds.
Gut by this time he" was ubout two
pounds lighter than a straw hat, but
still black and full of pep. Light as
he was, I was no "white hope," and it
won all I could do to carry lilra to the
hospital. Swatts kept right ulong be-
mna me, and every time I would stop
to rest, be would poke me with a
broom the only broom I saw In Ger
manyand laugh and point to bis ear.
Then I thought it was a frame-up
and that he was getting oven with me,
but 1. was In for it then, and the best
I could dp was to go through with It
But I was all In when wo reached the
hospital. The Anything I saw when
we got in the door was another negro.

.ICute, bocnuso night nittl day ho wuh
whistling tho old song, "ICute, Knto,
Sleet Me ut tho Garden gntc," or words
to that effect. I luivo wnked tip many
n night nnd hoard that whistle Just
about at tho some place tin when I hud
fallen asteep. It would not have been
so bud If he had known nil of It.
I took Swatts' broom and denned
up, and then naked where the coal or
wood was. This got it grent laugh. It
was quite humorous to tho men who
had shivered there for week, maybe,
but to mo It was about m funny ns u
cry for help. I got wood though, be
fore I hnd been there long.
Thero was a great big cupboard
thnt looked more llko u small house,
built against the wull of the hospltu1
barracks lu one corner of tho room,
raid not fur from the stove.- Knle was
the only patient able to bo on his feet,
so I thought hu would have to be my
chief cook nnd bottle washer for a
while; and, besides, there was some
thing nbout him that mude him look
pretty vuluiible. I hud not recognized
his whistling yet, so Slim looked to be
the right immo for htm.
'Slim, what's that big cupboard
"How'd I know? Nuthln' In It."
"Slim, thnt would make a lino box
for coal or wood, wouldn't It?"
"Um, Wlinr de coul an' wood?"
"I'm going out and tako obsorvn'
tlons, Slim. Take the wheel whllo I'm
gone, and keep your eye peeled for
U-boats." So I sneaked out the door
and begun looking around.
If you look at the sketch I have
mnde, It will not tako you long to see
that next to us was a vacated ltusluti
r barracks. Ami It did not take mo'
much longer to see It. too. Back to
the lwspltnl and Slim.
"Slim, what barracks "are next to
"Russian burrucks, only dey ain't

"And you mean to tell mo you don't
know where to get wood?"
"Sick men been In dem burrucks."

Thnt did tho trick. Tho block boy

then wo would slip Into the barracks
next door, and he would watch again.

bunks. When wo hud un armful

We got the same kind of food In tho
hospital that was served In tho other
barracks, and I would not huvo had
any moro than I used to, except that
sometimes some of the twenty-six pa
tients could not cat their share, and
then, of course, It was mine. One day,
though, we all hadvxtm rations.
Two Russian doctors came to visit
us euch day, and onco they were fool
ish enough, or kind enough, to ask if
we hud received our rations wo had
received them curlier than usuul and
they were finished nt the time. Of
course, I said no, so they ordered tho
Russian In tho kitchen to deliver
twenty-eight rations to us, which wns
not quite three loaves of breud. Wo
were that much ahead thut day, but It
would not work when I tried the trick
One day a German doctor came to
the hospital barracks. Ho would not
touch uuythlng while ho was there
not even open tho door. All of tho
patients hud llttlu curds attached to
their beds charts of their condition.
When the Germun wunted to see these
charts the Itusshyi doctors had to hold
them for him.
I was having a great tlmo at tho
hospital, wrecking the barracks next
door each day for wood, along with
ICute, nnd getting n little more food
somc'Jmes, and was always nlco and
warm. I thought myself quite a pet
Compared to what I hud been up
against, It seemed like reul comfort.
But the moro food I got the more I
wanted. And It was food thut brought
me down, after all.
Across from us was a barracks In
which there wero English ofllcers, and
somehow It seemed to me thut they
must have had a drug. Every once In
a whllo I saw what looked like vege
tables and bags of something that was
a dead ringer for brown flour. So I
told Slim, or Kate, as I was calling him
by then, and with him on guurd, I
sneaked out ,

Despair and Freedom.
Whllo I was working at tho hos
pital conditions at my old burrucks
bud boon getting worse anil worse.
Very few of the men weru absolutely
right In the heud, I guess, and utmost
.all hud given up hope of ever getting
out nllve. '1 hough they put up u good
front to tho IIiiiih, they really did not
cure n grent deul what happened to
them. The only thing to think about
won the minute they wero llxlng In..

German olllcors mid thnt ho hud been
to dinner with them, mid hnd bud tur

you could think of. Wo Just sat and
stnred at him. It seemeil luiosslblo
thut any of our own men would have
thu gull to torture us like thut, mid yet
wc could not possibly bellevu thut It
had really happened. Flnnlly, ono
fellow could not stand It any longer.
He was nothing but skin nnd bones,
but ho grubbed a dividing board mid
thero wero Just two wallops: tho
board hit the Australian's head nnd
the head hit tho floor. Then half n
dozen moro pounced onto him and
gavu blm a real licking. When ho
camo to ho had forgotten all about
tho wonderful dinner ho did not have.
Not long after this tho Russian doc
tors proved to the Germans thut thero
wns no blnck typhus In our barracks
and wo wero allowed the freedom of
the enmp except thnt wo could not
visit the Russian barracks. That was
no hardship to mo nor to the rest of
us, except ono chnp from tho Cambrian
Itunge, who had n special pal among
tho Russlnnn that ho wanted to see.
And, of course, when It wus verbotcn,
he wunted to see him all the more.
A day or two nftrr tho order I was
standing outside thu burrucks door
when I snw this fellow come out with
n dividing hoard In his hand. I thought
ha was going to smash somebody with
it, so I stood by. But ho stooped over
and Jammed ono end of tho board
against tho threshold of the door,
scratched tho ground with thu further
end of tho board and measured ngnln.
Ho kept this up, length by length, In
thu direction of the Russian hnrnicks.
Tho sentry In tho yard stopped and
stared at lilro, but tho fellow kept
right on, paying no attention to any
body. Pretty soon ho was right by tho
sentry's feet and I thought uriy mlnuto
the sentry would give him tho butt,
but ho Just stared n whllo nnd let him
pass. That lad measured tho wholo
