Saltwater Bath Reward for Gallantry
of French Soldiers
A Seaside Resort in Flanders, Sept.
22. (Correspondence of the Asso Associated
ciated Associated Press). Excursions to the
seashore have been abolished in
France since the beginning of thb
war, but one invaded this excellent
bathing beach today, giving it an un unaccustomed
accustomed unaccustomed animation.
An entire division of French poilus
arrived in the morning, climbed out
of motor buses and motors with the
mud of Flanders still on them. In a
few minutes they were making the
surf fly as it has not done since 1913.
They were the men with whom Gen General
eral General Anthoine had brilliantly taken
the German lines north of Bixschoote.
When these heroes were relieved,
their general told them what a great
service they had rendered to their
country, and ended by asking, "Boys,
what can I do for you?" An officer,
covered from head to foot with mud,
stepped forward and said:
"General, I think what all the men
would prefer to anything else on earth
is a good bath."
General Anthoine immediately or ordered
dered ordered a mobilization of sufficient
motor conveyances to take the entire
division to the nearest seaside resort,
where they could enjoy a swim in the
surf, of which not only soldiers but
the great majority of civilians have
been deprived since hostilities began.
The effect of this opportunity for
a good free plunge in salt water upon
the spirit of the men was such that
the officers regret that the quarters
of all divisions are not near enough
to the coast so that the experiment
may be developed into a permanent
and regular diversion for the troops
at the front.

As Mr. Chas. W. Hunter, with his

Silver Springs Sunday afternoon, a
slight accident caused him to stop,
turn the car to one side of the road
and go to making repairs. While in
this condition, a citizen from out in
the country north of town, and evi
dently in a devil of a hurry to get
home, came along in his car at thirty
miles an hour and bumped Mr. Hun Hunter's
ter's Hunter's car good and hard. The force
of the shock can be judged by the
fact that Hunter's heavy five-passenger
car was driven twenty feet. Both
cars were damaged, Mr. Hunter's the
least. There was no excuse for the
accident, Mr. Hunter's car was well
out of the way and the other car was
far exceeding the speed limit.

I saw before me an old man dressed

Not Enough to Go Around
Once upon a time there was an old
cat that had several kittens, but one
little kitten had been a good little
kitten, because his eyes had been open
longer than any of the other kittens
of the litter and had been an obed
ient kitten to macat, or, in this case,
pacat. Now pacat went out of nights,
as is the habit with cats, my children,
and in his ramblings found the home
of a sly old fox unguarded and a very
fine piece of pie made from marionap
pies, a luscious fruit that grew where
some of the kittens had their habitat
So pacat decided he would take the
piece of pie home and give it to one of
his kittens, having in mind the good
little kitten. But when pacat got
home there were three little kittens
mewing, so hungry were they and so
soft were the little paws that held
themselves out for the little piece of
pie. Now pacat did not want to let
his other kittens know that he pre
ferred one to the others, so he said
the little kittens must decide who
should have the pie. But the little
kittens got into such a rough-and-
tumble fight about the pie, that final
ly pacat told them he would just take
the pie back to old sly fox. And he
did. Moral: One piece of pie is too
small for three kittens.

The Schoolhouse Flag
! I watch within the school yard,
j The wee folks romp and race;
i I hear the alien accent,
I see the alien face;
I think how men of selfsame birth
O'er seas each other slay,
Yet here, in gay comraderie,
Their children's children play.
I put these to the test: "Whose flag
Streams out from yonder pole?"
"It's ours! 'Old Glory!'" every breed
Gives answer, heart and soul.
And in their swift reply I read
Rebuke to those who'd see
In folk from king or kaiser's land
Menace to liberty.
These are tomorrow's men; their lives
We for the flag engage,
When we teach them its sacred folds
Are common heritage.
All bloods blend in crimson bars
That through "Old Glory" run,
It calls to men in divers tongues
They answer it in one!

Superstitions concerning salt are
among the earliest known to mankind.
There is much evidence in holy writ
about the ceremonial uses of it, and the
old Mosaic law commands that every
sacrifice of a meat offering shall be
seasoned with it. Homer calls it di divine,
vine, divine, and many of the old Teuton races
looked on salt springs as holy and wor worshiped
shiped worshiped at them. The origin of this su superstition
perstition superstition seems to be that since salt
cannot corrupt it should be regarded as
a symbol of immortality.

An official bulletin, signed by Brig.
Gen. Charles H. Barth, camp com commander,
mander, commander, and freely distributed about
the officers' quarters, calls attention
to an extract from the address of
Gen. John M. Schofield to the United
States corps of cadets, Aug. 11, 1879.
It is apparent that Brig. Gen. Barth
wishes officers here to remember this
extract in drilling the selectmen, and
it may be said that the officers are
conforming to the policy outlined by
Gen. Schofield. The extract reads:
"The discipline which makes the
soldiers of a free country reliable in
battle is not gained by harsh or ty tyrannical
rannical tyrannical treatment. On the contrary,
such treatment is far more likely to
destroy than to make an army. It is
possible to impart instruction and
give command in such a manner and
in such tone of voice as to inspire
in the soldier no feeling but an in intense
tense intense desire to disobey. The one
mode or the other springs from a cor corresponding

commander. He who feels the re

fail to inspire due regard for him himself,

manifests dislike toward others, es especially

there was nothing to do but take the
copy for the next issue out of his desk
and send it to the composing room.
Among other copy I sent up a story

manfully. As it was. I could only pre pretend
