for Small Game
Kennebunkport, Me., July 24.
Four men landed in a dory at Cape

their fishing schooner, the Robert

sunk by a German submarine on
Cashe bank sixty miles southeast of
Cape Porpoise at 10:30 o'clock yes yesterday

coming in behind them they said. The
schooner had just stocked up with
halibut for the Boston market.
The men stated th eschooner had
been destroyed by a bomb. The sub submarine
marine submarine they stated came out of the
water a few hundred yards distant
and sent shell screaming over their
bow. The crew promptly swung the
schooner up into the wind and took to
their boats. Then the raider sent a
boat aboard the schooner, apparently
took only her papers, placed a bomb
and left her. A few minutes later an
explosion sent the trim little knock knockabout
about knockabout to the bottom. No other ships
were in sight at the time. The sub submarine
marine submarine was last seen going south on
the surface. The last the fishermen
saw of the submarine she appeared
to be resting on the surfaee with her
nose pointed south.
The party that boarded the fishing
vessel was in command of her second
officer. This man. who said he had
lived in the United States and had
had a summer home in Maine since
1896, asked for the ship's papers,
took the ship's flag, and ordered the

Saxon. Anglo-Saxon. The First Sound of Guns
Suddenly you are startled, or not,
according to the degree of your ex experience,
perience, experience, by a terrific burst of sound,
seemingly right above your head. The
first shock passed, you realize that
it is only a big gun addressing the
jBoche ten miles away and not an ah
bomb or a German shell as for the
moment you imagined.
At last you reach the outskirts of
a jungle, and leap gladly down from
the camion for the evening meal. The
rest of the trip is likely to be afoot,
unless the unit is urgently needed in
the firing line, and for hours more
you trudge along. It is cooler now, and
the dust is less thick than in the
forest. Some one starts a chorus and
you go forward more cheerfully.
All the while the roar of guns
grows louder, but you don't worry
much. The Boche is needing all hi&
guns to meet our advance, some one
has said, and,, better still, you have
heard that little gas is being used in
this open fighting.
You pass the night in a little wood,
and this time sleep soundly, un
troubled by the incessant cannonade.
If the unit is to "go in" immediate immediately,
ly, immediately, you are awakened while it is still
dark for a hurried meal before the
assembly for the final march to the
battle positions. You feel more cheer cheerful
ful cheerful after eating as you swing for forward
ward forward in the cool twilight, and your,
very nervousness is mixed with a
strange thrill of exhilaration. You
know you will do your utmost, and
your comrades beside you likewise.

She took my eye;
Since you have seen her, I infer
You know just why.
With such an appe-blossom face,
With such a slender, willowy grace,
I marked the day, the time, the place,
She took my eye!
Elapsed a week or more of time
She took my heart;
And yet I lived and felt quite prime,
Nor grieved to part
With that important bit of me
An organ which 1 rarely see;
In fact, I quite rejoiced that she
Should take my heart.
When six short months were nearly
She took my name;
I felt my wings were clipped at last,
And grew quite tame.
But I was willing, goodness knows,
To squelch at least a dozen beaux,
If from such thorns I picked my rose.
She took my name!
Since then the climax has been reach reached
ed reached She takes my cash!
Whene'er economy I've preached,
She'd fed me hash;
While modistes squander half my pay
And tradesmen call for more each

as hot as a corner of purgatory.
Moreover, it will not hold a good good-sized
sized good-sized audience. Scores of people who
came down last Tiight went away
when they found the meeting was to
be held in the courthouse instead of
on the square, and those who braved
the heat of the room were far from
comfortable. We hope that in future
summer night meetings will be given
Mr. Fort is a volunteer worker fo

His speech was replete with interest

it. The report referred to is not
