Only the Boots of the Drivers of Four

Search Is Made ior Remains of the
bondon, Oct. 16, 11 A. M. —Theru
| has been given out-in London a de
| scriptive account of some recent de
velopments in France gent by an eye
witness attached to the British General
headquarters. The account is dated Oc
tober 13 in France and is in part as
"On the firing line the men sleep
and obtain shelter in dugouts they
have hollowed or cut under the dises of
the trenches. These refuges are raissd
slightly above the bottom of the trench
es so as to remain dry in wet weather.
The floor of the trench also is eloped
for purposes of drainage. Some of the
trenches are provided with overhead
cover which gives protection from the
weather ns well as from shrapnel balls
and splinters of shells. Considerable
ingenuity has been exercised by the
men in naming these shelters. Among
the favorite designations are the 'Hotel
Cecil,' the Hotel,' the "Billet
l>oux Hotel' and the 'Rue Dormori.'
Wit Among the Troops
"In the barracks are also to be
found boards bearing this notice: 'This
way to the Prussians.'
"Obstacles of every kind abound,
and at night each side can hear the
enemy driving pickets for entangle
ments, digging trous-de-loup, or work
ing forward by sapping. In gome
place obstacles have been constructed
by both sides so close together that
some way suggested that each side
prove working parties to perform this
fatiguing duty alternately, insomuch as
the work of the enemy i* now almost
indistinguishable from ours and serves
the same purposes.
"Quarries and caves to which al
lusion already has been made, provide
ample accommodation for whole bat
talions, and most comfortable shelters
which have been constructed in them.
Northern slopes of Aisne valley fortu
nately are very steep and this to a
great extent protects us from the ene
my's shells, many of which pass harm
less over our heads to burst in the
meadows along the river bank.
Access to the Firing Line
"At all points subject to shell fire,
actess to the firing line from behind
is provided by communication tfenches.
These are now so good that it is pos
sible to cross in safety a fire swept
zone to the advance trenches from bil
lets in villages, bivouacs in quarries
or other places where the headquarters
of units happens to be.
"It already has been mentioned
that according to information obtained
from the enemy fifteen Germans were
killed by a bomb dropped upon the
ammunition wagon of a cavalry column.
It was thought at the time that this
might have been the work of one of
our airmen, who reported that he had
dropped a hand grenade on this convoy
and had then got a bird's-eye view of |
the finest display of fireworks he had
Deadly Work of a Grenade
"From corroborative evidence it now
appears that this was the case; that a
grenade thrown by him probably was
the cause of the destruction of a small
convoy carrying field gun and howitzer
ammunition which now has been found
a total wreck. Along the road lie four
teen motor lorries, their iron skeletons
twisted and broken. Everything in
flammable has been burned as have the
stripped trees some with split trunks,
on either side of the side. Of the
drivers nothing remains except tat
tered boots and charred scraps of
; clothing, while the ground within a
| radius of fifty yards of the wagons is
i littered with pieces of iron, split brass
cartridge shells, which have exploded :
and gome fixed gun ammunition with \
Thrown From Aeroplane
"If it were possible to reconstruct
this incident, if it was in fad brought'
about as supposed, the grenade from !
the aeroplane must have detouated on
the leading lorry, on one side of the
road and caused the cartridges carried
by it to explode. Three vehicles im
mediately in the rear must then have"!
been set on fire with a similar result.
Behing these are groups of four and
two vehicles so jammed together as to
suggest that they must have collided j
in desperate attempts to stop. On the
other side of the road, almost -level
with its threading wagon, are four more !
vehicles which probably were fired by :
the explosion of the first.
"If this appalling destruction was
due to one hand grenade it is an il
lustration of the potentialities of a
small amount of high explosives det
onated in the right spot, while the na
ture of the place where the disaster oc
curred, a narrow fnrest road between
high trees, is a testimony to the skill
of the airman. It is only fair to add
that gome French newspapers claim this
damage to the enemy was caused by
the action of a detachment of their

I THE SONGS OF OTHER DAYS
Selected By J. HOWARD WERT
No. sin. "They're All Getting Married But Me"
Behold in this mortal a poor single man,
Who wanders about all the day;
No one in tliis world cares a jot for me,
■ So long as my lodgings 1 pay.
I always was shy and ofttimes would cry,
If any young girl winked at me;
For to tell you the truth, all the friends of my youth,
Are all getting married but me.
There's the birds that fly, the pigs in the stv.
The fishes that swim in the sea;
The dogs, the cats, the mice and the rats,
Are all getting married but me.
Now there's only one thing in this world I can <ti
And that is to cross the wild sea;
To join Brigham Young and the Mormons and thei
Perhaps more happy I'll bo.
Now it seems very queer there's no young girl here,
A fancy could take to me,
For the haddocks, the whales, the frogs and the snails.
Are all getting married but mo.
"The Golden Ring"
Oh, Jamie, where's the golden ring, I'll hie me to the birnie's side.
And where's the necklace rare. And ave I'll seek it there.
And where's the pretty velvet string I'll be the birnie's weeping bride.
To tie my raven hairf And never grieve thee mair.
When last we met, oh, Jamie, think I'll tell the birpie all my woes
On vows ye made to me, I'll tell the birken tree,
Recall the birnie's flowing brink, I'll kneel me on the gowan braes,
Recall the birken tree. And there I'll pray for thee.
To name the ring or necklace brftw And to the bonnie moon I'll sing,
No more in time I'll dare, Beneath the birken tree.
But where's the heart you stole from me? And I'll forget the golden ring
Oh, Jamie, tell me where. Ye falsely promised me.
"The Grave of Washington"
pisturb not his slumbers; let Washington sleep
'Neatli the boughs of the willow that over him weep;
His arm is unnerved, but his deeds remain bright
As the stars in t"he dark-vaulted heavens at night.
O, wake not the hero; his battles are o'er;
bet him rest undisturbed on Potomac's fair shore.
On the river's green border, so flowery drest.
With the hearts he loved fondly let Washington rest.
Awak enot his slumbers, tread lightly 'around;
'Ti« the grave of a freeman, his liberty's mound.
Thy name is immortal, our freedom ye •won,
Brave sire of Columbia, our own Washington.
O, wake not the hero, his battles are o er;
Let him rest, calmly rest, on his dear native shore,
While the Star and the Stripes of our country shall wave,
0 er the land that can boast of a VN grave.

FRENCH STATEMENT DENIES
HAVING BATTERY AT RHEIMS
Washington, Oct. 1 6.—The following
statement was issued by the French, em
"An official telegram received this
morning at the French embassy states
that there is no truth in the reports
from German sources that close to
Rheims cathedral two French heaty
batteries have been located and light
signals from one tower of the cathedral
have been observed.
"It seems from the spreading of this
report that it has come to the knowl
edge of the Germans that the destruc

thorough than they contemplated and
that they mean to perfect their work,
