These were caught in a barrage fire
and those spared from this inferno
were annihilated by the British troops
following the barrage. Besides the
ground lost, German casualties were
heavy and more than 3,00Q prisoners
were taken. The German resistance
did not seem strong against the

The lack of German activity last
night was a further evidence of the
shock of yesterday's battle to them.
They kept up a heavy artillery fire
last night but did not deliver a single
counter-attack. The British are busy
consolidating their new positions.
The French are busy with surprise

GETTING USED TO

Our Younsr Men in the Training
Camps Will Feel at Home j
in Europe j
The following letter from one of J
our young men taking instruction at
one of the officers' training camps
shows what our boys are going thru
in order to prepare for the real thing.
His letter gives a good idea of what
all the men, officers and privates, are
going thru, except that the enlisted
men do not have to take the course of
study that is put up to the prospec prospective

Dear Folks: Another week gone,
and believe me it has been some week.
Every one in our company heaved a
huge sigh of relief when the last for formation
mation formation was over today. It is always
"blue Monday" in camp. We started
off with new non-coms so the drill all
day was rotten. Incidentally it rain rained,
ed, rained, so at night every one was tired.
We -had just settled down to a com comparatively
paratively comparatively comfortable evening when
the call sounded "Fall in under arms."
We assembled in the company street
and were issued ten rounds of blank
cartridges and were told we would at attack
tack attack the line of trenches which were
occupied by the second battalion. We,
of course, had our fu.ll packs, .50
pounds, slung to our backs. We start started
ed started out to circle the trenches. We had
about a mile and a half to go right
through the woods. Everything was
absolutely quiet and we took care not
to even snap a twig. Bear in mind it
was still raining to beat the devil. We
advanced until within about 500 yards
of the enemy's outposts, then laid flat
on the ground. The men in the
trenches were on the alert for any
movement so you had to even breathe
with care. Of course I managed to
draw some extra dirty work. It was
my pleasure to scout ahead for their
outpost, to locate flares, barbwire,
etc. I mean that I had to crawl a
couple of hundred yards on my hands
and knees and stomach through wet
woods, always on the alert to avoid
coming into contact with any outpost,
for to be captured or seen meant th&j
failure of the move. I was fairly suc successful
cessful successful and got back to my lines all
right. Then the attack began or
rather the advance. We managed to
get within about 75 or 80 yards of
the front line trenches before one of
our men stepped on a flare trap in
the dark. (A "flare trap" or a "flare"
is a sort of a skyrocket, roman can candle,
dle, candle, pinwheel arrangement that gives
off a tremendously high-powered
light). In a second everything was
as light as high noon. It was then
bang! bang! and we went at them.
Actual battle would have been no dif different
ferent different in effect. You forget every everything
thing everything except the desire to close with
your man and to close as quickly as
possible. Our bayonets were fixed,
but sheathed, in order to injure no
one, so that the last few feet was
hand to hand, gun against gun. It
was intensely exciting. You forgot
it was play for the moment.
The umpires decided that our at attack

we had regular work.
Wednesday we relieved the second
battalion in the trenches, It was a
fairly decent day. Everything done
in regard to the trenches is under the
command of two French officers, so it
must be done exactly as if we were in
France. During the day we repair repaired

other companies were up in the fire

as we moved silently up. Any noise
would have immediately drawn heavy
rifle and artillery fire from the en enemy.

It Is commonly said that most people w dig their graves with their teeth." The disastrous effects of constipation
have always been well known. It is easily understood how serious are the troubles which are caused by
stagnation of decayed matter in the large intestines
poison reabsorbed and taken into the circulation this
is called auto-intoxication. It is apparent, there therefore,
fore, therefore, that the first necessity is to cleanse the intestines
The best method for cleansing the whole
intestinal tract and urging the liver into activity is
to take as much outdoor exercise as possible, drink
hot water before meals, and take a pleasant, laxative,
vegetable pill occasionally. Such a one is made up
of May-apple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap; made
into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made nearly fifty years ago, and sold by
almost all druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
Such simple means will prevent auto-intoxication.
People are realizing that the kidneys, just
as do the bowels, need to be flushed occasion occasionally.
ally. occasionally. The kidneys are an eliminative organ and
are constantly working, separating the poisons from the blood. Uric acid backs
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other serious disturbances.
This can be avoided by stimulating the kidneys to increased action, and because of its tonic effect
on these organi I would advise any one to purchase Anuric (double or triple strength), which is to be had
nowadays at almost any drug store, and take it three times a day. Also drink hot water before meals.

And Nipper answered with his eyes:
Yes, Master, with your friend 111
No one shall drive me out his gate,
And woe to him that tries!"
Hours passed; the good dog waited
His brown eyes warning all beware
That no command would he obey
To "beat it home," and thus all day
He watched in patience there.
Then came the question o'er the wires,
"Is Nipper there?" in anxious tone
"Yes, he is there; he will not go!"
"IH call him; maybe he will know
Me through the telephone;"
Hark! to his ears came the voice
That Nipper loved, in accents plain,
"Nimoer. come home!" Quick as a flash
Awaya he flew, nor threat nor lash
Had power to restrain.

; GETTING USED TO
THE WAR GAME
(Continued from First Page)
we got settled in the new position
about 10 o'clock. Everyone was held
.in readiness until after midnight onj
account of frequent attacks on our
j lines. Then it started to rain again,
j and of course sleep was not thought
! of. All night it soaked us and about
j 4 o'clock we had to fight off another
attack. By this time the mud and
water in the trenches was ankle deep.
WTien dawn .came we pitched in to
drain and repair. Wet clothes, wet
packs, wet everything. The mud here
is the worst of anywhere in the
world; sticky, red clay stuff. In teti
minutes you are covered "with it and
carrying ten pounds of it around on
each foot. We slopped around until
the r.fternoon. then moved up to the
first line. The rain came down in
cloudbursts and the water could not
drain out fast enough, so you slop slopped
ped slopped around with it up to your knees
We were not relieved until about four
in the afternoon, and were back at the
barracks at 6:30. You can imagine
what a delightful experience it all
wras. Thirty two hours, hard work in
the rain, mud in your grub and no
sleep. We were a sorry-looking bunch
of fellows, but we all came in singing.
A cold bath, a rub and only a few felt
any effects. I came out topping, only
worse for wear and need of sleep. One
of the worst features, however, was
the fact that we had a very important
examination the night wre came out.
I do not yet know how I came out on
it. I do know, however, that I work
ed on it as a man would in his sleep.
I do not recall now distinctly how I
answered some of the questions. Also
this- morning was inspection and our
equipment was in the most hopeless
condition. However, I managed to
get through all right.
At any rati you se wee were some
busy and every one received a pretty
fair idea as to what they may expect
when they get across.
We will be taking up more advanc advanced
ed advanced work from now on: tactical prob problems,
lems, problems, map making, etc. Also the
weeding out process will start in
earnest. Conimissions from this camp
are to be scarce, no sliding through
as in the last camp. Some of the
men who made commissions at Fort
McPherson are being called up for
further tests and if they do not reg register
ister register high they stand a fair chance to
lose their commissions. It would be
hard on some of these war brides if
hubby should "fliv" now, wouldn't it?

Lord Kitchener had suffered a severe
accident that resulted in a leg so tad-
ly broken as : to necessitate several
weeks cpnjpiete rest at the time, and
later, two months' furlough in En
land, and a resetting of the bone. One
of Kitchener's staff gave the news of
his misfortune to the ameer luring a
great tiger hunt at Gwalior.
"I told him," the offleer wrote Lady
St. IR-lIer, "that the chief had a nasty
fall at Pooua, his horse tumbling down
an embankment. He immediately ask
ed for a piece of paper and wrote a
telegram cf sympathy in Persian. He
banded it to Sir Henry MoMahon and
asked him to send it off immeJiately.
Sir Henry wrote it down in Enplisb,
