eight nights and seven days with no
water to drink and very little to eat.
I killed four bodies up there and
wounded quite a few. When we wen wen-relieved

Chateau Thierry and were mixed up
in that fight, but I did not get an
boche there. From there we went to

Verdun front and we were in that
drive. Here I was wounded af tei

glad .the censorship has been lifted.

THE RED CROSS ROLL CALL.
When "the greatest mother In,

week, of December 16-23 the
hope of the American Red Cross
is that the answer for the, entire
American people will be : "All
present, or accounted for."
It will be the occasion for
22,000,000 adults and 8,000,000
children to renew their member membership
ship membership and for all others to join.
One happy slogan of the, roll call-
announces that "all you need is
a heart and a dollar.
Why does the Red Cross at

to buy one In France. Speaking of
craps, it's the great barrack room

after payday. And every niche they

when one or two men in the regiment

Children of the Crusade
By JEANNE JUDSON.
Frightened and pitiful, they walk apart,
Through the familiar village street, grown strange,
Hand clasped in hand, they hear weird echoes start
From ruined homes. Fear dumbs each small, child heart,
No tears rain down like dew to ease their woe;
Horror has dried the wells from which they sprang,
Like wee crusaders of the long ago,
Their phantom banners in the breezes blow.
If one should call out "Follow !" they would run,
Grime of the highway on' their tiny feet,
Heedless alike of dust and blazing sun,
Forget, as dreams, the horrors that were done.
None calls; weary they rest' within the shade,
The ruined church, where once they learned to pray,
Long years before the war had come, and laid
Their homes in ruins, made their hearts afraid.
Before the Holy Mother low they bow,
Perhaps she hears and soon will bring them aid,
It must be she whjpse voice is calling now.
For see the cross is shining, on her brow!
The light around her head, a nimbus gleams,
A Red Cross worker, not from Jrjeaven, they know.
Yet Uary heard and sent her-here it seems, .
To lead them home to shelter, and to dreams.

By HELENA M. KENNEY.
The train rolled slowly out of the
station, leaving a girl standing on the
platform. Xellie Windsor was fifteen
years old. Her mother and father
were dead and she had no one but
Uncle Jo and Aunt Betty. Uncle Jo j
had written her to come and live with
him and here she. was. It was fully
ten minutes before Uncle Jo came,
and when he did he gave her a hearty
kiss and lifted her Into the buggy and
eft they went. Arriving at the farm,
she found Aunt Betty waiting on the
porch for her, and such a dear old
lady she was. It was then 3:30 o'clock
and the rest of the afternoon was
spent in unpacking her clothes and
learning the rounds of the house.
After supper she went directly to bed,
because she was tired from her long
The next afternoon she wandered
around, picking flowers, chasing but butterflies,
terflies, butterflies, and, gathering an apron full
of apples, she went down to the little
brook. It was nice and cool and she
was enjoying herself when "Hello,"
said a voice. She looked up, but saw
"I say, hello," again came the voice ;
this time it seemed to come from the
tree that was across the brook.
"Hello yourself, replied Nellie.
"Where are you?"
"Up here in the tree, said' the voice.
"Come down," she said.
"Nope," answered the voice. No
amount of teasing, would make the
j voice come down. It was getting late,
so Nellie said: "If I come here tomor tomor-jrow
jrow tomor-jrow will you let me see who you are?"
j "Maybe," replied the voice. So Nel Nellie
lie Nellie scampered up the Jilli and home.
But she was not to see the owner of
the voice tomorrow," for when she got
up the next morning it was raining.
Uncle Jo came in at dinner time
with an invitation for Nellie to spend
the afternoon with the Browns, who
lived across the field. Slowly she
went upstairs to dress, sorry because
she could not go down to the brook,
but maybe it would be there some
other time; so with this happy thought
In mind she was soqn-ready, and
Uncle Jo took her over to the Browns'.
She was rather shy, being among
strangers, but Mrs. Brown soon put
her at ease. Molly Brown was Nel Nellie's
lie's Nellie's age, and they took to each other
right away. While they were sitting
talking about nothing In particular the
doorbell rang and Molly's mother went
and admitted live young people who
had come to spend ,. the afternoon.
Soon a boy about a year older than
herself came fn and was Introduced
as Billy Brown. What a good time
she had, and what nice girls and boys
they were But Billy where had
she heard that voice? The afternoon
passed', all too quickly and when the
guests rose to go Mrs. Brown shook
hands with them all, and so did Molly
and Billy. When Nellie arrived home
she could not help thinking what a
nice boy Billy was and she blushed
when she thought how he had given
her hand a tiny, unnecessary squeeze.
The days that followed were the
happiest ones she had ever had Long
! rambles with Molly and the Tucker
I twins, picnics, and often she would go
for long walks with Billy. She liked
Billy very much and Billy liked Nellie.
But she did not forget the voice. Ev Every
ery Every day she would go down to the
brook and talk and talk with it She
would 'tell It of the nice time she was
having,' and went so far as to tell It
of Billy. Thus two weeks passed on
and Nellie thought she was never go going
ing going to ; see the voice, when one day
the voice told her that' she would see
Lit tomorrow, sure. To be sure Nellie
was tnere at tne appointed time ana
the voice said, "If I come down will
you promise to give me one thing T
Wondering what It could be, but cu curious
rious curious to see the voice, as she had
called it, she readily said, "Yes." It
slid down the tree and there stood
"Ton you V she gasped. Billy
smiled and said, "Tour promise." She
was so surprised she did not know
what to say. At length : she said,
"What do you want?"
"A kiss," he replied.
"Oh h I" and she turned to flee up
the hill, but Billy like a flash caught
her. It was useless for her to try to
get away, even if she wanted to.
