Lond6n.—Tommy is getting to
know Hans better. Groups of slightly
wounded men are being sent back
from the shattered British front east
of Amiens. Every man has been told
by his officers that he must not talk
for fourteen days, even* of his per-
sonal adventures. The impossibly
stupid British censor office would
have all knowledge of^this war kept
from the world.
"You can talk about the Dutch-
men," I suggested to one chap I met
at.the Charing Cross station. "That'll
do no harm."
He agreed with me. He was a nice,
clean cut boy—Private Harry Clark
of the Staffordshire regiment—and he
was just sweating to talk, A hole
through his arm only inconvenienced
bim. He was smoking a huge pipe.
"They fight well," Baid he. "They're

The war office has persistently put
out stories that the Germans cannot
stand the bayonet, along with a com-
panion piece that the Germans ham-
string wounded men.

don't know what it is to be a-feared.
They keep a-coming on, and just
trample all over us."
Clark's regiment w,as intrenched
somewhere on the front at Mons.
The British were forced to bear the
brunt of the German attack through-
out this first great battle. Long be-
fore they first came in contact with
the foe they had been cheered by the
war office statement that the Ger-
mans were afraid of the cold steel.
The war office had also said that the
Germans are inferior as to field ar-
tillery and in rifle practice.
"Their guns was good." said Pri-
vate Clark. "We used just to get a
hole dug for ourselves, and they'd
shell us out of it. I didn't think much
of their shrapnel. Seemed to me it
didn't have much force. But they
could sure 'it us."
The particular German regiment
that practiced upon Clark and his
comrades was not composed of sharp-
shooters, according to the Briton.
For an hour they lay in their trenches
and fired at each other. On the other
hand, other soldiers have asserted the
German shooting is quite up to Irt-
ish standard. Then the Germans
scrambled out of their trenches and
started on a dog trot across the field.

themselves, 'You bally beggars, we 11

The greatest poems have been writ-
ten about little wars. The Iliad was
written around a siege carried on by
a handful of barbarian chieftains
against a city of the second class. The
battle of Chevy Chase was a border
skirmish following upon a cattle-steal-
ing expedition. And Kipling's Imperial
muse is at her best when she sings
of petty wars with colored tribesmen.
Britain's far-flung battle line was far
flung against Dervishers and Afridis;
it was seldom brought into collision
with field intrenchments and siege ar-
tillery. Little war, or else big wars
in anticipation of retrospect, these are
the rich soil for the poet.
A great war in the actual, the fate
of an empire truly at stake, may make
poets out of the common crowd, but
subdues the poet to the level of the
common crowd. There is a solemn tone
about Kipling's latest verse which has
its effect. Only it is not exhortation
we wanted, but exultation; not an ap-
peal, but a clarion call. When an en-
tire nation is aflame the poet is apt to
find his mission rather perfunctory.
Save the Babies.
INFANT MORTALITY is something frightful. We can hardly realize that
of all the children born in civilized countries, twerity-two per cent.,
or nearly one-quarter, die before they reach one year ; thirty-seven
percent., or more than one-third, before they are Ave, and one-half before
they are fifteen 1 „ . ,,
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castona would save a
majority of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many
of these infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotio preparations.
Drops, tinctures and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain
more or less opium or morphine. They are, in considerable quantities,
deadly poiBons. In any quantity, they Btupefy, retard circulation and lead
to congestions, sickness, death. Cafltoria operates exactly the reverse, out

REVENGE OF FRENCH MOTHER
Red Cross Nurse Makes Wounded
German's Parent Suffer for
a Few Moments.
Paris.—The following remarkable
human document is absolutely authen-
tic, but for obvious reasons the real
names of the persons concerned are
not revealed. It is a letter sent by a
French Red Cross nurse to the mother
of a wounded German soldier in her
care. The letter follows:
"Madame: Your son is seriously
wounded. His life depends entirely on
the assidious care'of myself, his nurse.
"While at his bedside, I think of my
son, who, lying helpless on a battle-
field only slightly wounded, was cow-
ardly finished by a revolver bullet by
one of your soldiers, perhaps even by
your son, now under my care.
"I am not a saint. My revenge is
easy. Tonight an extra dose of mor-
phia will bring me justice for the death
of my son.
"I am sending you here the last
good-by of your son. L. A.,

"P. S.—Madame, your son is safe.
He will be well within two weeks. 1

solable mourning which now will be
crisis came they saw the need of ac
tual money in place of these bonds.
They cabled to their American bro- ;
kers to sell at the market price. They 1
took whatever they could get, but j
there was always something offered, j
so the sales were heavy.
The purchasers of these bonds gave
their checks. These the brokers !
cashed at their banks and got curren
cy. This currency of the United
States is made good by the deposit |
of gold in the treasuries. For every
gold certificate in existence there is
the actual metal In the treasury. So
the brokers, getting the currency from
the banks, went to the sub-treasury in i
New York and asked for the actual
gold. They received it and Bent the
gold to their customers abroad.
Hard to Kill Some Men.
Reports Indicate it sometimes takes
a lot to kill a modern soldier. Ser-
geant Fougere of France received eight
bullet wounds, a broken arm and oth-
er injuries, and although shot in the
calf, thigh and ankle, escaped being
captured by Germans, and limped ten
miles to his regiment. Another French
soldier received six bullet and three
bayonet wounds, and is recovering.
The French war office estimates only
two men are killed out of every hun-
dred hit. The penetration is so clean
one s ldier did not know he bad been
hit for three hours, and another bullet
went through two soldiers and lodged
in a cavalryman's saddle.

Strong Man's Weakness.
Speaking of great featB of strength
Franklin H. I.ane, secretary of the in-

One afternoon an elderly woman
visited the penitentiary, and on paus-

the Inmate had been Imprisoned for
stealing a piano.
"I am very sorry to see you here."
remarked the woman turning to the
convict. "Is It true that you stole a
"Yes, ma'am," was the frank admis-
sion of the convict. Then he added:

"In a moment of weakness!" gasped
the elderly visiton "Mercy me! 1

strength you would have walked away

The Human Automobile
The human body, like an automobile,
changes fuel (food) into power. When the
fuel is loo rich, or the mixers and valves
are out of order, waste products clog the
machinery and reduce the power.
The kidneys, like exhaust vslves, should
carry off the waste (uric acid), but weak
kidneys can't. Uric acid In excess causes
