We are in the midst of a general cry

of hard times and enormous taxes we

Hills Gray With Soldiers.
On a hillside a mile' away arc thou-
sauits ot men in gray. They form a
gray carpet over the great slope. I
can sec a white horso among them as 1
look through my glasses. The carpet
moves unil farms itself into patterns of
straight lines on a green background,
These thousands of men aro to be tukeu
to the front after dark tonight. They
are waiting, and to keep them from
growing nervous, their officers put
them through drills now and then. It
is lli.'IO now, but in this northern land
at this time cf the year, it will be
pitch dark at 4:45 this afternoon, so
they have not many hours to swarm
idlv on the knfe hillside.
lt.lj a., in. We desert the wagon
to go the rest of the way oa foot. J
see my fiist Biirnimel burst. Jt makes
a tiny, lazily floating cloud of white
smoke over the hills. Through my
glasses I Bee an Austrinn aeroplane
near the white cloud. Another cloud
and another and nnother break into
view. Tho Russians aro trying for the
aeroplane. The aviator kiiows it, too.
There's nu use of his trying to climb
above the danger, for the shrapnel has
an .inward rnncc of over two miles, so
the machine turns tnil and starts back
towaid the Austrian lines. 1'uft! Puff!
1'uifl more white clou. Is break out
around it. These nre deadly cubic
miles of uir ii there and if the aviator
happens into one of them there will
be a burst of splintered wind ami tat
tered canvas and his work will be done.
Hut it's nil in the day's work for the
man in the sky. He has been sent up
to draw a Russian fire so that the
whereabouts of a certain Russian bat
tery may bo disclosed. Ho has suc
ceeded, too, for soon you hear the Aus
trian shrapnel bcreiyhing through the
air iiivvnnl the spots ia the heavens
where the smoke flies, The Austrian
are feeling over the forests, hills and
valleys for the Russian batteries. They
want the Russians to shoot and the
aeroplane tins turned the trick. Amid
all these exciting scenes we see hungiy
soldiers, with their backs bent earth
ward, digging with sticks in a field for
potatoes. Their stomachs arc crying
louder than the shrapnel.
Costly Little Grips.
1:1:10 p. m, We pass piles of am
munition beside the nnd. There are
white pine boxes, the size of a travel
ing mun's grip. Each of them con
tains a shell about four Inches In diam
eter, weighing about 115 pounds and
costing $l.-il, Each shot of this vast
tattoo we ure hearing means one of
these shells has gone tot pot. Then
there are other boxes painted black,
the sumo size. They contain four 2
inch shells, costing about I0 each.
We re not hearing these, for the RiiS'
muds' nnd Aiistriaas ' artillery Hues are
ahnut five miles uiurt nnd the smaller
shells do little damage at that dis
tance. I-:'J0 p. in. Adams, who has spent
nearly all his life in Austria, though
he was born In lloston, and who has
been In the Austrian army, explains
what is giing on. It is true the ar
tillery lines are five mi Ira apart, but
way up ahead of the artillery with
their own shells coining up from be
hind them and over their heads am
regiments of Austrinn Infantry hiding
in valleys, trenches or toresls waiting
for the order to advance.
