Behind the. Lines lri France. This
land of recent buttled Is a queer hind
now. Over the shell-torn villages nnd
blnstcd woods, the pitted fields nnd
ruin of all that once was Is a strange
quiet. The winter sky Is lacking In
uirplunes und great flocks of crows
Imvo tuken their place.
A few villagers have crept back to
see what remains of their homes and
holdings, but probubly the winter will
have passed before reclamation nud
reconstruction are undertaken on a
Along the roads repaired nnd rc
brldgcd for tho allies' advance Into
German territory long camion trains
move slowly nud always southward.
They travel leisurely vow, for the need
of hurry Is gone. Thoy bring back
the salvage of battlefields, all tho
things that go to make war, abandoned
Endlecs Trophies of War.
Truck load after truck load of rifles
and shells, of water bottles and haver
sacks, cartridges, machine guns, bayo
nets nnd trench knives nnd pistols,
niefcs kits; overcoats, caps, an endless
catulogue Of paraphernalia arc brought
In. The battle zone is still full of It
all, In heaps and racks, waiting sal
vuge. Now and then come trains of air
plane camions burdened with disman
tled flying machines of every type and
ovcry nntlon, engine and fuselage nnd
running gear on the truck und the
great wings on Its specially designed
trailer. Some of them are unharmed,
but many show bullet holes through
the frail fabric or the ruins of a crash.
A fair proportion of them bear the
Maltese cross that marks them bochc.
There nre trains of captured enemy
artillery, particularly of motor bat
teries, driven nnd manned by French
men, and these nrc happy outfits.
Often the guns arc decorated with
evergreens nnd always the French sol
diers laugh und wnvo a greeting. As
they creep through the villages the
populace flocks, out to .view the can
non that for four years gent death and
devastation to their land, and tho
children clamber on the carriages and
out on the grim barrels.
But It is the troops on the way back
that are most Interesting, returning
to rest areas or to their ports of em
barkation for home. French or Amer
ican, their behavior is the same. Al
ways they. greet everyone cheerily or
boisterously anil always tho French
officers salute with n smile wheu they
meet nu American caf, while the men
wave nnd shout : "I.n guerre est tints I"

British War Secret of Discharging Mis.
slice From Airplanes Is .
Disclosed. " j
London. "Phantom torpedoes" from,
the clouds sank a Turkish ship carry
ing 3,000 troops, just before the end
of hostilities. Only the armistice pre;
vented other aerial "phantoms" from
operating effecHrely against the Geri
man warships In the Kiel Canal and
other German navy shelters. .
These hydroplanes discharging tor
pedoes above the water have been
the great secret of the Brtlsh navy
during the closing month of the war;
Scientific officers of this branch of
the navy agree thnt these mysterious
planes are designed to accomplish
from tho air more effectively and
more swiftly what the torpedoes from
submarines can achieve.
An armored ship carrying twenty of
these machines met the German sur
rendered fleet nt sea ready for nctlon
In case the Germans should attempt
some eleventh-hour trickery.
These nmnzlng plnnes ascend 'from
land or deck, climb thousands of feet
for n sudden dive from the clouds at'
n speed of 150 miles an hour, straight
en out fifty feet above the sea and
discharge a torpedo direct at the enc
my ship. Then they disappear Into
the clouds as suddenly as they an-'
pcared, and so swiftly that the cnem
craft has no chance of training its
guns or machine guns on It.
ITow tho difficulty of discharging a
torpedo iu the air Is overcome is a
naval secret It Is "kriow'n that se
rlous accidents marked tho experi
mental tests with these wonderful ma
