Average Man's Most Terrifying Po Position
sition Position on Field of Battle Is
Everyone of us must have wondered j
how he would feel in battle for the j
j first time. We may get some idea of
! how the average man feels in such cir cir-!
! cir-! cumstances from a study of the psy-
! cholcgy of battle, just published in j
! Italy, says London Tit-Bits. Lieuten- j
ant Colonel Mangiarotti of the Seven Seven-';
'; Seven-'; ty-seventh infantry carefully examined
more than two thousand soldiers who ;
! first faced fire in the recent war be
tween Italy and Turkey, and he sum summarizes
marizes summarizes their statements in the Ri Ri-vista
vista Ri-vista Militare. He questioned them
one by one.
Out of 2,000 men 1,700 confessed
that their most trying moment in the
whole campaign was when they first
heard hostile bullets whistle about
their ears. But almost all of them said
they were much less frightened than
they had expected to be, and that the
scare diminished with each battle.
The average eoldier, finds the most
terrifying position to be that of stand standing
ing standing motionless In the front rank, ex exposed
posed exposed to the enemy's fire without be being
ing being able to reply. The order to ad advance
vance advance or to charge with fixed bayonets
is then received as a release from
agony. Movement, even into greater
peril, distracts the mind and greatly
reduces the mental anguish.
Soldiers are seriously affected by
the trembling of their superiors. An
officer who shakes in his shoes is a
coward In the eyes of the rank and
file, although the men know that many
military heroes Henri IV, Turenne
and Frederick the Great, for instance
trembled on going into a fight.
Colonel Mangiarotti says that offi officers
cers officers must understand this feeling. This
is especially true of lieutenants, for
this Inquiry reveals the fact that in
battle all officers from captains up upward
ward upward are nonexistent so far as the
common soldiers are concerned. They
keep their eyes on their lieutenants
exclusively. This was brought out
when Colonel Mangiarotti asked the
men what sentiment animated them
when the bullets were falling all
around them was it love of country,
religion or their oath of fidelity to
their king? "I went ahead," they re
plied, almost unanimously, "because
my lieutenant went ahead."
It seems that once battle is on and
the first feeling of terror has vanished
soldiers feel as if set free. The fever
of combat takes possesjpn of them
and they think about nothing else.

Cancers That Cure Themselves.
In the annual report of Doctor Bash Bash-ford

fund an announcement of great im importance
portance importance is made. It is to the effect
that transplanted tumors fall into two
categories, a very email group that
grow progressively because they do
not produce resistance to their own
growth, and a large group that tend to
disappear spontaneously because they
induce in the body a powerful resist resistance
ance resistance to their growth.
"While this remark is applied only to
tumors artificially, produced in animals
for experimental purposes, it may. be
that some at least of the apparently
extraordinary cures of cancer in hu human
man human beings have been due to this
power of the body to resist the growth
of the cancer. If further experiments
shall result in the discovery of the
method by which certain resistant
bodies throw off the cancerous growth,
it will be a long step toward finding a
way of conferring this power upon
those who do not possess it.

in 1729, when some Prussian soldiers,
traveling through Hanover, were de detained

William I and George II had long
hated one another, on personal
grounds, so the former seized upon
this incident as a pretext for challeng challenging
ing challenging his royal cousin to fight a duel.
Matters went so far that each king
named his seconds, but, owing to the
exertions of the diplomats, a meeting
was averted. Thereupon Frederick
William mobilized 44,000 troops on the
Hanoverian frontier, and George also
made a show of warlike preparations.
Eventually a settlement was reached
by exchanging the Prussians George
had detained for some Hanoverians
impressed by Frederick William for
his army, and the troops massed for
combat were disbanded Pall Mall Ga-sette.

Mr. Wallace E. Johnson of Lowell
and Miss Sybil C. Taylor of this city
were married this afternoon at two
o'clock by Mrs. Mary Bogie. They will

We are indebted to Mr. Booher, the
sturdy farmer out on the Orange
avenue road, for a backscratcher that
any man would be proud to own. It
is ornamental as well as useful, and
came just at the right time.

ocassionally in case of sickness had

was at one time a slave in Virginia

her the news of the great world war
as told in photographs iri Leslie's and
Colier's Weekly magazines. Sometime
ago she told "Aunt Fannie" that we
might have to take part in the great
conflict if Canada was attacked and
could not withstand the attack etc,
etc., leaving "Aunt" Fannie with the
germ of the idea in her mind that
we might have to join in the war.
The idea evidently grew to large
proportions in the next few days as
will be seen by her "scare."

of clothes, or rather her arms were,
and she demanded very 'promptly,

The children answered in baby
talk, "We's goin to wart!"
"Aunt" Fannie's mind was in just
the right frame to receive news of
this character, and, shaking the water
off her hands, she made a "bee-line"
for her house and commenced, with
shaking hands, to dress in her "best"
and making a little bundle of her
most treasured belongings, was ready
to leave home (as she had seen pic pictures
tures pictures of Belgian refugees doing)
when her daughter-in-law came in and
inquired as to her excitement.
When she learned the truth she was
very much tickled and told "Aunt"
Fannie to come out and listen to the
children again, as they were only say saying

proved "a little knowledge is some sometimes
times sometimes a great curse." Is it not? G.
