,. The most wondorful of all, perhaps, was
that of one of tha "tanks." or new armored

own Initiative. This monstrous land ship,
ambling and lumbering along, did not wait
for the Infantry after the taking of duoude

across lots looking for food like some pre
historic lltard. Sooner or later It was
bound to find another German trench and
engage the occupants with IU machine guns.
In this It succeeded, but ran out of gaso

When the Germans found this strange

Ity and a. desire for revengo was a flllp to
their courage. They went after It with the
stalking avidity of the prehistoric man

No such gamo was ever seen before on
this western front, which Is used to nil

According to tho account veractously
given by officers, whllo the "tank's" machine
runs were biasing right and left, nnd taklng
heavy toll of life, aomo Germans managed
to creep along their trenches; under the
fore and. hind legs of this, crushing beast
and then they swarmed over It looking for
an opening through which they might strike

MACHINE OL'NS IlUSr
All the while Its machine guns were kept
busy at all tho human targets In reach. Its
crew, all chosen dare-devils, concluded to
stick until they starved out or the Germans
found the proper can-opener to get them
out Finally Urltlsh Infantrymen, seeing
tho "tank's" distress, did not wait on any
general's orders to remain at their objec

out to save that Impounded comrade. With
a cheer the British rushed the Germans
and overwhelmed them. When the crew of
the "tank" heard laughing and ahoutlng In
English they opened the door and called
"We aro all right lfyou will only get

BRITAIN RESENTS NEUTRAL PEACE
TALK; DEMANDS "KNOCK-OUT" OP FOE
Centtnsed from Tare On
The fight must be to tha finish to a knock
out." Dropping his colloquialisms, the halt
smile fading from his face, Lloyd George
continued In a more serious vein.
"The whole world. Including neutrals of
the highest purposes and humanitarians
with the best motives, must know that
theto can bo no outside Interference At this
stage. Britain asked no Intervention whon
she waa not prepared to fight. She will
tolerate none, now that she Is prepared, until
Prussian military despotism Is broken be
yond repair. There was no regret voiced In
Germany over the useless slaughter. There
were no tears by German sympathizers
when tho few thousand British citizens
who never expected to be soldiers, whose
military education started only a few
months previously, went out to be battered,
bombed and gassed, to receive ten shells for
every one they could fire went out fought
nnd died like sportsmen, without even a
grumble. I repeat that thero, was no whim
pering then, and the peoplo who nro now
moved to tears at tho thought of what Is
to como watched the early rounds of the
Unequal contest dry-eyed. None of the
carnage and suffering which Is to come can
be worse than the sufferings of thono Allied
dead who stood the full shock of the Prus
sian war machine before It began to falter.
"But In the British determination to carry
the fight to a decisive finish there la some
thing more than the natural demand for
vengeance. The Inhumanity, the pltlleas
"ness of the fighting that must come before
a lasting peace la possible Is not comparable
with the cruelty that would be Involved
In stopping the war while tnere remains
a possibility of civilization again being
menaced from tha same quarter. Peace
now, or at any time before the final and
complete elimination of tills menace, Is
unthinkable. No man, and no nation with
the slightest understanding of tho temper
of this citizen army of Britain's which
took Its terrible hammering without a
whine or grumble, will -attempt to calt a
"But how long do you figure this can
and must go on?" Lloyd George was asked.
"There's neither clock nor calendar In
the British army today," was his quick
Time is the least vital factor. Only the
result counts not the Umo consumed In
"It took England twenty years to defeat
Napoleon, and the first fifteen of theseyears
were black with British defeat. It will not
take twenty years to win this war, but what
ever tlmo Is required. It will be done, and I
say this recognizing that we have only
begun to win. There Is no disposition on
our sldo to fix tho hour of ultlmato victory
aftor the first success. We have no delusion
that the war Is neartng an end. Wo haven't
the slightest doubt as to how It la to end."
"But what of France; Is there tho same
determination there to stick to tho end ; the
same idea of fighting until peace terms can
be dictated by Germany's enemies?" Lloyd
George was asked.
FRANCE TO STAND FIRM
The Secretary of War carefully matched
each finger of one hand with each finger
of the other, and as he turned his chair
elowly to gaze out over tho khakl-dotted
throng In Whitehall It Bcemed, tho interrup
tion had stemmed the flow of conversation.
There was a full moment's pause as he
swung around again; the reply came In a
voice and manner Impressively grave.
"Tho world at large haa not yet begun
to appreciate the magnificence, tho nobility,
tho wonder of Franco," he said, "I had tho
answer to your Inquiry given me a few days
ago by a. noble French woman. She had
given four sons she had one left to bo
given to France. In the course -of my talk
with her. I .asked if she didn't think the
struggle had gone far enough. Her reply,
without a moment's hesitation, was: 'The
fight will never have gone far enough until
wo have made a repetition of this horror
Impossible.' That mother waa Voicing tha
spirit of Prance.
"Tea, France will stick to the" end. I
suppose America's conception of Franco nnd
tho French soldier before the war waa a
erroneous as the British Idea. I suppose
you, too, regarded the French soldier as
excitable, brilliant In attack, but lacking
dogged staying qualities.
"Nothing was more unwarranted than
the popular Idea of the Frenchman aa a
poor defensive fighter. History never Justi
fied this Idea, but thero will be a new ap
praisement, a new appreciation when the
real heroism, nobility and genius of the
uerense or Verdun Is fully understood.
France has fought the longest wars of any
nation of Europe and her history Itself Is
assurance enough that he will bold to
"With the British It will bo the sporting
spirit that will animate the army to the last
fair play tho motive fair fight tho method.
With the French It will be that fiercely
burning patriotism thnt wilt sustain the
army to the end, regardless of when the
end may come."
"Will go through to the death I" Inter
rupted Lloyd George,
"Russia has been slow to arouse, but she
will be equally slow to quiet The resent
ment of the Russian against having been
forced Into war Is deep. He has neither
forgotten nor forgiven the fact that this
happened when- he was 111 prepared and
unsuspecting. No, there are and will be
no quitters among the Allies.
" 'Never again" has become our battle
"At home the suffering nnd sorrow Is
great and la growing. As to the war zone.
Its terrors are Indescribable. I have Just
visited tho battlefields of France. I stood,
as It were, at the door of hell. I naw
mynaas marenmg into the rurnace. I saw
somo coming out of It scorched and muti
lated. "This ghastllness must never be re-enacted
on this earth nnd one method at least
of answering that end Is tha Infliction of
such punishment upon the perpetrators of
this outrage against humanity that the
temptation to emulate their exploit will)
do eliminated rrom tne hearts or the evil
minded among the rulers of men."
