devil than ever.
- But he, the cherub, was so soft and
furry and fat and creamy, and, though
he had got pink eyes, tliefe seemed
to be nothing else of his mother and
father about him. He never bit, he
never spat, and he never used bnd lan
guage, and he lived upon bread and
milk, like a gentleman.
So he was till the spring broke.
. It -was their own faul.t, the ferret
crs. They took him out rabbiting, as
usual. They put a collar with a bell
'on round his neck, as usual, and a
long, long string on the collar, as
usual, and they turned him Into a
. rabbit warren, as usual. And he
'sneezed three times, as usual, nnd h
;walked docilely down the first rabbit
hole he came to, as usual, to turn out
the rabbits from their burrows, as
usual, that the sportsmen outside
imlght shoot them ns they bolted.
So far, until he got Into the middle

hours passed, nnd the ferreters,

It up. He worried slowly, and he
fhafed, he pulled, and tugged, be
backed, and he sweated, and ho
sneezed, and finally his collar camo

The cherub sneezed threfl times, and
walked three yards. Then he realized
he was free. It was the first tlmo In

VIGTIMS OF HUN BRUTALITY
How Allied Soldiers Suffer! When
They First Experienced the Hor
rors of Kaiser's Poison Gas.
Suddenly a great cry rang out:
It wns true. Over thero from tho
enemy's lines, came great greenish
bulls, rolling close to the earth, rolling
deliberately yet swiftly, rolling
straight toward us, Emmanuel Bour
clir writes In Scrlbner's. Gas J Thnt
horrible thing, still almost unknown,
which had been used for the first time
only recently on the Yscr. U was
coming with deadly surety nmldst a;
tornado of artillery. Orders wero
shouted back nnd forth: '
"The gnsl Put on tho masks I"
- Each mnn spread over his face tho
protecting cloth. Tho shelters wero
dosed. The telephone, whose wires
ran the length of the communication
trenches, gave the warning: "Look
out! The gnsl"
We did not yet know what manner
of horror it was. None of us htul ex
perienced an attack of tho sort. We
ran to and fro like ants whose hill
has ueen molested. Some fined their
guns at random, others nwnltcd or
ders. The frightful, vivid thing came
on, expanded to a cloud, crept upon
us, glided Into the trenches. The air
was quickly obscure. We wero swim
ming In an atmosphere stained a
venomous color, uncanny, Indescrib
able. The sky appeared greenish, the
earth disappeared. The men staggered
about nnd rolled on the ground, stifled.
There were some knots of soldiers
who had been usleep, in their beds
when overtaken by the gas. They
writhed In convulsions, with vitals
burning, with froth on the lips, cull
ing for their mothers or cursing the
Germans. We gathered them up as
best we could; we took them to the
doctors, who, thus confronted by an
unknown condition, found themselves
powerless. They tried tho applica
tion of oxygen nnd ether In an effort
td save the lives of the victims, only
to see them die, already decomposed,
In their hands.
The masks had not yet been perfect
ed and wero a poor protection. Some
ran about like madmen, shrieking in
terror, the throat choked with saliva,
and fell in heaps, in contortions of
agony. Somo filled tho mouth with
handfuls of grass and struggled
