Salonika, Dec. 11. A French soldier
in a steel hat stopped nnd looked nt us
curiously as we walked along tho road.
'Excuse mo," ho said in broken Eng
lish, "but it's so long since I've seen
a man in clothes like yours that I
couldn't help staring."
The big British gnu was booming at
two minute intervals. French guns, set
on near-by hillsides, were sending oc
casional shots and once in a while we
talked, a Bulgarian shell broke on the
road a quarter of a mile below us and
wo saw soldiers running from the cloud
of earth. It was a battlefield, in every
sense of the word, a battlefield which
within 21 hours was to be tho scene of
an ally retreat. Incidentally, I wonder
what became of the little Frenchman.
"Civilian clothes seem extraordi
nary," he said. "Havo some choco

pocket, with a postage stamp and an
address on it.

move from here" ho said. "The
rumor is going around our camp. They
say we are going to fall back to the
Greek border. Haven't you heard any
thing about it back in Salonika J"
First Hint of Eetreat.
I hadn't. His question was the first
sign of the coming retreat. On tins
spot, tho very next day, dead British
and French soldiers were to lie among
the holly shrubs niid Bulgars were to
chnrge with bayonets, shouting their
cry of "no prof, no nosh."
"It's been cold here," explained the
soldier, "but I've been healthier than
I've ever been before in my life. Why,
when the war began I couldn't stand
any hardship. If I wasn't in bed by
10 o'clock evrey night I suffered nil
day for it. I had indigestion terribly.
X(iw, I haven't slept in a beil for five
months and I eat anything, anything

"All this artillery firing makes me
