Cleaning Up Battlefield
Is a Whooping Big Job
By William PhlUp Simms.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
With the French Amny in Cham
pagne, Oct. 2-J. (By mail.) Cleaning
tip a battlefield is a whooping big job,
The battle of Champagne begun a
month ago and several regiments are
jrtill trying to make it presentable.
This battlefield, which will bje known
in future text books as in many ways
unique, is 15 miles long and three miles
wide, running east and west. As the
French advanced they faced the Ger
mans at its southern edge of it, their
trenches, cut in chalk white as curds,
being 00 to ZOO yards apart.
Two months before their drive the
French began to accumulate amuuition;
mass artillery, dig trenches, build nar
row and ataudard-guage railways; wide,
well-graded rook-and-gruvel highways
and other things of the sort.
September 22 the French artillery
turned loose a hell's fury of shells. A
German officer's letter, interrupted by
death, said the shelling resembled the
collapse of a world. Practically every
square yard of this 45 square miles of
ehalky ground was tossed into the air
by explosives. White as a sepulchre, it
is hard to believe that ever again will
man be able to make his home amid
For three days the French poured mo
linite and chedite into the Merman's
barbedwire entanglements, steel turrets,
machine guns, armored trenches, secret
traps, hidden defenses, invisible wire
coils with cutting edges, centers of
resistance, fortified woods and what
The Germans, their food supply cut
off because supply trains cou'.d not ap
proach, huddled at the bottom of thei
bomb-shelters 20 feet under the ground,
while their trenches were blown to
nothing. Homo companies lost half their
men during the bombarcYnont . alone.
Underground ammunition Btorcs explod
ed; shelters wore ripped up as though
they were roofed with paper inntead of
yards of stone nnd earth. . The world
never saw Buch shell fire.
At 9:15 a. m. on the 25th the French
infantry charged, and at 0:15 and a
half the house-cleaning began. As the
attackers entered what was left of the
Gorman first line trenches, the clean-up
began with -tiie bayoneting all roniaiu-1

ing Germans who offered resistance
and making prisoners of those who sur
rendered. Then the dead were thrown
out and the position turned around for
a possible counter-attack.
The dead Germans were buried in
their own trenches. I have heard th;
20,000 to 25,000 bodies were thus dis
posed of, while bodies at the bottom of
cave-ins, under destroyed bomb-shelters
and in like places were left in the
graves of .their own choosing,
Brand new cemeteries were made for
the French who fell. The new graves
are cunous. There being no time to
place crosses or head stones to mark
the graves, a wine bottle,, with name
and (matriculation number corked in
side, ig stuck nock down in the middle
of each new mound. In eases where
identification was impossible, the dead
are buried in a common grave with
some such mark as this serving for all :
"Horo He the bodies of 27 French
soldiers wro died for their country."
The dead removed, the cleaning-up
continues. Broken transports, shattered
wheels, splintered planks, clothing,
German and French helmets, ammuni
tion, guns, swords, books, shoes, revol
vers, and numberless other odds and
ends including arms and legs lie pro
misculnusly about on the churned-up
earth. These all must be disposed of.
This is a sanitary war. If there have
been no plagues It is because the cleaning-up
has been thorough. All this
gruesome collection is disposed of hy
glenically. Useable material is parked
and sont to the rear; guns are stacked
in orderly piles, according to make;
bayonets and scabbards and swords
and head-sear and all the rest, ditto.
The stuff is listed and shipped and re
ceipts and way-bills are all properly
made out and signed and sealed.
Then . the advancing army settles
down in its now home. It had made a
fairly comfortable place during the
months of waiting, but all tnis nos
been left behind and a new start is
made. The former quarters of German
officers and men are transformed, with
much scouring and furbishing and dis
infecting, into quarters for the French
officers and men.
Today the battlefield of Champagne
Is comparatively clean. But one still
occasionally stumps one's toe against
something or other very unpleasant.

enough to have his own opinion of the
best way of gelling medicines. He says
the plan adopted by Mi-o-na, the great

ever heard of. He doesn't believe that
a medioine ought to be paid for unless
it does the user some good. And Mi-o-
na la sold under a positive guarantee
to relieve dyspopsia or to refund the
money. You simply leave 60 cents on
deposit with Daniol J, Fry and if, after
you have used the box of Mi-o-na you
decide that it has done you no good, all
you have to do is to tell him so and he
will return your money.
Hundreds of people have been relieved
of stomach agonies by nsine this re
markable remedy. It is not simply a
food digester; it is a medicine that puts
an or the digestive organs into normal
condition and gives ruddy, glowing, vig

will be seen aftor the first few doBes

soon give the power to cat anything at
