terlnf patrol and would carry atx UUla
At 11 :80 that night twetre men, our
lleutennnt and myself went out In
front on a patrol In No Man'a Land.
We cruised around In the dark for
about two hours. Just knocking about
looking for trouble, on the lookout for
Bocne working parties to see what
they were doing.
Around two tn the morning wo were
carefully picking our way about thirty
yards tn front of the German barbed
wire, when we walked Into Bocha
covering party nearly thirty strong.
Then the music started, the fiddler ren
dered his bill, and we paid.
Fighting In the dark with a bayonet
Is not vt't-y pleasant. The Germans
took It on the run, but our officer waa
no novice at the game and didn't fol
low them. He gave the order "down
on the ground, hug It close."
Just In time, too, because a volley
skimmed over our heads. Then In low
tones we were told to aeparate and
crawl back to our tranches, each man
on his own.
We could see the flashes of their
rifles In the darkness, but the bullete
were going over onr heads.
We lost three men killed and one
wounded In the arm. If It hadn't been
for cur officer's quick thinking the
who'.e patrol would have probably
been wiped out.
After about twenty minutes' wait we
went out again and discovered . that
the Germans had a wiring party work
ing on their barbed wire. We returned
to our trenches unobserved with the
Information and our machine guns im
mediately got busy.
The next night four men were sent
out to go over and examine the Ger
man barbed wire and see If they had
cot lanes through It; If so, this pres
aged an early morning attack on our

selected for the Job. It was Just like,
sending a fellow to the undertaker'
to order his own coffin.'
At ten o'clock we started out, armed'
with three bombs, a bayonet and re
volver. After getting Into No Man's'
Land we separated. Crawling four or
five feet at a time, ducking atar shells,
with strays cracking overhead, t.
reached their wire. I scouted along'
this inch by Inch, scarcely breathing.
I could hear them talking In their"
trench, my heart was pounding against,
my ribs. One false move or the least!
noise from me meant discovery and;
almost certain death. j
After covering my sector I quietly
crawled back. I had gotten about b
way when I aptlced that my rtvol
waa missing. "It waa pitch fli

three or fonr minutes previously I had
felt the butt la the bolster. I crawled
around In clrclea and at last found It,
then started on my way back to our
trenches, aa I thought -
Pretty soon I reached barbed wire,
and waa J oat going to give the pass

I put out my hand and touched one of
the barbed wire stakes. It waa Iron.

German are Iron, . My heart stopped
beating; by mistake I had crawled
back to the German lines.
I turned slowly about and my tunic
caught on the wire and made a loud
ripping noise. .

sprang to my feet, ducking low, and
ran madly baek toward our lines. The

Three days after the Incident Just re
lated our company waa relieved tron
the front line and carried. We atayec
In reserve billets for about two weak
when we received the welcome new;
that our division would go back of th.
Une "to rest billets." We would re
main In these billets for at least twt
months, this In order to be restored t
our full strength by drafts of recruit
Everyone was happy and contente
at these tidings; all you could hea
around the billets was whlstllug am
singing. The day after the receipt o
the order we hiked for five days, mak
lng an average of about twelve kilo
per day until we arrived at the smal
town of 0'
It took us about three days to" ge:
settled, and from' then on our cush
time started. 1 We would parade frooo
8:45 In the-morning until 12 noon.
Then except for an occasional billet
or brigade guard we were on our own.
For the first four or five afternoons I
spent my time In bringing up to date
my neglected correspondence.
Tommy loves to be amused, and be
ing a Tank, they turned to me for
something mew lu this line, I taught
them how to pitch horseshoes, and this
game made a great hit for about ten
days. Then Tommy turned to Amer
ica for a neve diversion. I waa up In
the air until a happy thought came to
me. Why not write a aketch and break
Tommy in as an-nctor?
One evening after "lights out.' when
yon are hot supposed to talk, I Impart
ed my scheme In whispers to the sec
tion. They eagerly accepted the idea ,
of forming a stock company and :
could hardlf wait until the morning
for further details.
After parade, the next afternoon I
waa almost nobbed. Everyone la the
section wanted a part In the proposed
sketch. Whed I Informed them that It
would take at least ten days of hard
work to write the plot, they were bit
terly disappointed. I Immediately got
busy, made a desk out of biscuit tins
In the corner of the billet and put Up
a algn "Empey & Wallace Theatrical
Co." . About, twenty of the section,
upon, reading this sign. Immediately
applied for the position of office boy.
I accepted the twenty applicants, and
: sent them on scouting parties through
out the deserted French village. These
parties were to search all the attics for
discarded civilian . clothes, and any-,
thing that , we could use In the props
of our proposed company.
About five that night they returned
covered with grime and dust, but load
ed down with a miscellaneous assort-
! ment of everything under the sun.
s They must have thought that ' I was
going to start a department store,
Judging from the different things they
brought back from their pillage.
After eight days' constant writing I
completed a two-act farce comedy
which I called "The Diamond Palace
Saloon." Upon the suggestion of one
of the boys in the section I gent a proof
of the program to a printing house ID
London. Then I aaatgned the different
parts and started rehearsing. . Da -Id

teach a Tommy, with a strong cockney
accent to Impersonate a Bowery tough
or a Southern negro.
Adjacent to our billet was an open
field. We got bney at one end of It and
constructed stage. We secured the
lumber for tha gtage by deiaoUahlng

our billet '
The first eceoa was supposed to rep
resent a street oa tha Bowery In New
York, while the scene of the second
act waa the Interior of the Diamond

In the play I took the part of Abe

In the first scene Abe Switch meet

In the second act the curtain rises
on the interior of the Diamond Palace
saloon, and the audience gets its first
shock. The saloon looks like a pig

floor, and the bartender . In a dirty
shirt with his sleeves rolled up, asleep
with his head on the bar. --
