IT WAS A NOISY CARGO.
It Completely Cured the Skipper
of His Fear of U Boat.
A sklpiHT who took a cargo of Lvo
motives across the Atlantic when tb.
U boat warfare wag at Us worst gmo
this ringing story of the trip:
"We left Philadelphia with slsty i
coniotlve, all uca-ed tn bupe woodc i
boxes. Intact and ready to be takeu o.V
the ship and placed immediately on the
tracks to start dragging ammunition
trains to tbo famt.
"The iJelaware was as smooth a .n
l-oud as we made our way down t
the bay, but the first wavelets that
struck us at the capes started siuic
tiling that made ine want tu take a
tteader off the bridge. Every one '
t?ie sixty locooiutivf bells hi tbo bold
! ogun to ring:! And tbey uli lent rbig
i.ig all day and a!l night alt the way
across the Atlantic.
"At first I thought of going back tu
dock to bare the bells taken off. Hut
that would have nmonnted virtually t
uiiloadiq the wb.Ie tamo because of
the manner In wbith the locomotive
were-stowed, it would have meant n
week's delay, and I was supposed to
got to sea as quickly as possible. So
we irk out that n&bt with those sixty
inad bells gain? hammer and tongs
"I thought We woukl all looe our
senses. Sleep was out of the iiuestlon.
It was like ringing 'eight bells' elcbty
times a inlunte in sixty different keys.
J'ou'vu Men bir Ueury Iriiu ui the
play Tlie Hells?' Well, it was like
that, only this was no play, but real
life. It seemed, as one member of the
crew who is by far too imaginative
aatd, as if the k1hkN of all the mur
dered ships were climginp up at us out
of the depths ( the o i-un, warning us
of the U boats that liud littered the sea
floors with their bones.
"We fell in with some nasty weath
ur ag we neand thevuher side. The
vessel rocked and tossed, and every
time she piunged a whole cataract of
i bells wei-t tearlnir down toward perdi
tion. T.Vre In the U boat zone,' re-
marked the mun at the wheel to mo
one night. 'Good!' I cried. 'I hope a
torpedo hits us hour. Then perlius
I'll yet some sleep,'
"The destroyers that met its didn't
know what to make of us. They
thought we bad all uo craxy dvuqk
and were trying to tell the U bonis
exactly where we were. Hut I told
tltera I was cured of the fear of TJ
ItoaUs forever." l'hiladelphla Ledger.
What Is a Sapling?
The soldier who thought a "sapling"
was a yonrii pig wan evidently a Som
ersetshire man, for u correspondent
writes: "Highly n mused, I road aloud
your 'siipliiiK' story to friends. When
I hud finished n Komcrhetshlrc womun
who was pieseut UNked, 'Well, what do
j ou csill n siiplluK'' 'A yoiin tree,' I
replied. 'Is it'' she repllod. '.Vow, I'vo
always hoard n youn jil?r called n sap
Ihig lu Somersothblro. I'unber hniulry
lovealed that others suy the smne."
l'rom which we gather that the soldier
came from Somerset, while evidently
hlH olllcer did not. Londou Chronicle.
