What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

St. Paul, The Hottest Battle By Roger Burlingame Published by Special Arrangements With The Chicago Tribune -New York News Syndicate. Incorporated Copyright: 1836: By Roger Burlingame I T WAS HEAVEN back there in the transport. It was in the woods' the trees were all shot to hell, the ground was like smallpox with old shell holes, but it was safe. The line had moved up before we came. It had stopped moving. It was eight miles ahead of us. So the light stuff could not reach us and the heavies went 'way over, plowing through the sky like stern, business -like express trains. We were machine gunners and got Una refuge because we had horses. We used the horses with limbers -English style -to carry our guns when the go- ing was safe. Other times we carried them on our backs. The army thought a horse was worth half a dozen men. So there was likely to be a place like this to keep them in. Here, too, they kept the rolling kitchens, the type- writers, the rations, the red tape, the clerks; the horseshoers. and the cooks -all the things that must be kept in- tact to hold the integrity of an outfit. We were there a month. The' line ahead was steady, so our duties were occasional. We'd go up. a few guns at a time, shoot a barrage, and come back - those who survived. Here, when the sun shone you could strip, pick over your underclothes, wash them and yourselves. You could lie on your back naked on a blanket, which was delight- ful. You could sleep nights and eat hot food. George Rathbone commanded our company and Second Lieutenant Win- throp commanded the transport. That meant that whatever the rest of us did. Winnie stayed back here. He'd see that horses were hitched for us and limbers ready to carry our guns as far as we could without endangering the horses and when we came out he'd send the limbers to meet us. But he himself never had to go up. We were glad of that. We were glad, first, because Winnie was the young- est of us; just a boy, he was. Often when I looked at him I thought of that icing, \0. My. I'm Too Young to Die,\ the Canadians used to sing. Win- nie was too young to die. We were glad, second, because, in spite of his youth, he was the only one of us that was married. Most of us had gone to the wedding -it was at Camp Dix a month before we sailed -and we had fallen as much in love with Caroline as time and conduct becoming officers and gentle- men permitted. Was George Rathbone more atten- tive than the rest of us? It would have been natural -he and Winnie and Car- oline had all come from the same home town and we others had never seen her before. But I remember that after the wedding was over she put her hands on Rathbone's shoulders. \Take goad care of him. George,\ she said. \Bring him home safe and \ FARMS WANTED FARMS WANTED -With the comple- tion of Port Peck dam hundreds of farmers Will be obliged to move from their Missouri imations.

We were still a long took -••••\^\•^\\'\w\`\'''`\\`\'''''' At any rate, after Winnie's wedding always been a stern officer, kee us all up to the letter of the a- tions, but we had respected that. He was a good leader with mature judg- ment and he had a good head for the mechanism of machine guns and ther fire. We felt, also, that we could rely on his coolness in an emergency. And off duty he had been genial enough in his blunt way. Then in the month before we sailed he grew taciturn and kept to himself. I thought it was because he bore his responsibilities heavily and, after all, there was a good deal to do. keeping track of guns, equipment. and men. getting them all packed and embarked. I had a good deal of sympathy with any company commander with all that on his hands, but in that month many of the boys got to dislike him. Their feeling did not change when we got to France. They were mad at him for trying to keep parade ground discipline in the field where a certain amount of give and take was the thing in our civilian army. And then he seemed to be perverse-\ernary\ the word was -about some things: for in- stance, he tried every one of us in suc- cession as transport officer when he must have known that Winnie was the only one of the lot who had ever come within kicking distance cf a horse. But it was not until we had got our baptism and come back to our paradise in the woods that I ever heard any reflection on Rathbone's guts. We had time there for gossip. One day when we were lying shameless and happy in the sun. Sheehan and Casey began to talk. Sheehan and Casey were lieutenants commanding platoons up to the time that our casualties burned up such paper organization. \Hum said Casey, \hear George's in line for promotion.\ \Promotion my eyebrow,\ said Shee- han, using a slightly different expres- sion. \Yup. Maim\ \In the states.\ \Yuh that's right, Camp Dix.\ \Well said Sheehan. \further he gets away from us the better.\ I made a great effort and rolled over on my side. \Why?\ I said. \Hell said Casey, turning his head far enough to spit. \You've got him wrong,\ I said. \He knows his stuff better than-\ \Dog Sheehan interrupted, \good enough to get sent home as an in- structor.\ It was the custom to do this with of- ficers who were technical experts. \Well-\ I began again. \Knows his stuff,\ broke in Casey. \knows it in Washington, too. Knows just which wires to pull and which ones not to. Didn't know his old man used to be a congressman, did you, Bill? Well, he knows how to make congress jump.\ \But what for?\ -I asked, remember- ing Rathbone's stern, dark face. \What for? My God, Bill Banks, maybe you rank me as a first bole, but now we're all naked. I'll say you got a head like an ostrich! What for! Yeah, he just eats up all this shot and shell, haven't you noticed? What for I\ I was sitting up now looking with surprise down on the bitter faces of Casey and Sheehan. • CABBAGE PLANTS, 90 cents 100; cauliflower. tomatoes. 61.25. Swiss Giant pansies. 3 dos 1100.

APRTL 37. 1536 (1) We One of the greatest marine disasters Was on the Mississippi river when on April 22, 1865, the steamboat Sul'ana blew up 7 miles above Memphis and Sank with a loon of 1,450 Union sol- diers. \Good God,\ I said, \you're not tell- ing me you think he's yellow!\ \Smells just as sweet,\ says Shee- han, \by any name you want.\ \Tell me something, Bill,\ put in Casey. \Who takes the company up when there's a show? Bill Banks, Butch Casey. Red Sheehan. Capt. Rathbone? Reek in Brigade U. C. studying tactics. What for? One, because the more tac- tics he knows the more he gets sent home; two, because the general lives there; three, because it's so nice and quiet.\ I said nothing to this and lay back exhausted with my effort while Casey and Sheehan went on talking. I was impatient with the notion that only ! the men in the front line fought the war. George Rathbone's orders had been models of intelligence and pre- cision. Yet these lads had sOwn a seed of doubt in my mind. ! Suddenly Winnie. who had been asleep on the other side of me, woke up, \Lay off it, will you?\ he said. \Can't ; you let a guy sleep?\ And I was glad because the sun was too good to have to bother with think - \\ J olter that_ when they talked about Rathbone I noticed that Winnie took no part in it. Well, I thought. his loy- alty was natural to a man he had !known since he was born, lived with in the same village. And yet there was . something queer the way Winnie looked I at him; watched him constantly when he was with us: very rarely spoke to him but watched him with a sort of puzzlement in his eyes as though he ! was trying to figure something out. Well, the sun was fine when it came out but the nights in our paradise were jittery. You never knew when you'd get waked up by a runner and handed orders. Then you'd get up reeling with , sleep and stagger out in the wet to get the company together. It usually rained at night. 'Wi used to take lim- bers with the guns about halfway up and carry the guns on our backs after that. The orders would come about midnight or 1 or 2 o'clock so we could get up in time for a dawn barrage. It was hell hitching the horses -we weren't allowed lights. ' Winnie and I shared an elephant hut -a thing built of wood and corru- gated iron dug into the ground. When I'd get orders Winnie would say' \God I feel terrible watching you fellers go up and never going up.\ \Bunk. Winnie.\ I'd say, \you ought to be glad with your wife and all.\ \Hell what am I, a tin soldier?\ \Never mind, you'll maybe get your chance.\ I hoped to God not. but Winnie took it hard.' Next to us slept the two cooks. The rcooks were queer ones. They used to I keep us awake talking. They were phi'- , °gophers of a sort. One was deeply re- ligious and used to read his Bible !aloud. The other was a fatalist. ! \If you're going to get hit, you're going to get hit.\ \ Taint so.\ said the religious cook. ! \If you trust in the Lord and pray to him with faith He will spare You Now lust listen to this from Daniel.\ ; And then he would read loud enough to fill a church but with a terrible monotonous voice until pretty near the whole transport would start yelling at him to shut up. Winnie and I liked the cooks, they kept us diverted when we couldn't sleep and Whiffle. being such a kid, would usually drop off to sleep anyway, in the end. Well, things went on like that for some three weeks and suddenly hell broke loose up front. News came that Our infantry had broken through and made a bulge in the line. \Now we'll be moving the transport,\ said Sheehan. But I got my map and drew a pic-i tore of the bulge and I figured that that night we'd get a counter-attack. , Ten to one our company'd go UD with orders for a sacrifice defense. So I put crosses on the map for guns in echelon and got all my clothes on, ready. The news came just as the sun went down and I decided to stay dressed. Then I dug out a bottle of cognac I had hidden in my bedding roll and invited Casey and Sheehan into our shack for a game of bridge. We had candles stuck in bottles and double blankets over the door to keep out the light. We used a gross corn-wllly box upside down for a table. We played lousy bridge with Shee- han and Casey figuring they'd be sent up. but I played the worst because I' knew it was my turn. Also I knew bet- ter than the others what sacrifice de- fense meant. Well, we were going along like that. with Winnie. who was my partner bawling hell out of me, when all of a sudden the blankets drew apart and in walked Capt. Rathbone. I jumped to my feet, not from any military cour- tesy, but from excitement. - Kind of jumpy tonight,\ said Rath - bone, looking at me. \What are you so scared of, Banks?\ \Nothing.\ I said. \Have a shot of cognac. Captain?\ \I might.\ He sat down on Winnie's bunk and helped himself. \To tell you the truth. George,\ I said. \I thought you might have or- ders.\ \Well said Rathbone, \maybe I have. What's that to you?\ I began to see, suddenly, why they disliked him. \I figured it was my turn.\ He turned away from me and looked at Winnie beside him. \How's it going, kid?\ \Um.\ said Winnie, not looking up. \Getting tired of sitting on your Will in a nice soft billet, huh?\ I saw that Sheehan and Casey were! having a hell of a time inside them- selves with insubordination, but Winnie just said. \Yup George, I guess you know it.\ \All right,\ said Rathbone. \I got two sets of orders here. One's for me. Less than a week from now I'll be, saying goodbye to you.\ \States?\ said Casey with his lip. curled. \States said Rathbone. \Instruct - \I'll be God—\ began Sheehan, who had drunk a lot of cognac. I put my hand on his knee and stopped him. \What's the other orders?\ I said. \Not interested in that, huh? Well, the other is for Lieut. Winthrop. He'll take the company up tonight and set his guns for counter attack.\ \Good God, George!\ said Casey. \Winnie doesn't know a machine gun from a mess kit.\ \Doesn't he?\ said the captain. \Well for that matter, we don't any of us know much. He's fresh, the rest of you are all tired out.\ I jum up at that and said: \Rath. ine, have you gone clean crazy?\ \Not too crazy. Mr. Banks, to know what insubordination means.\ But by this time Winnie had got on his equipment and was out the door I heard him yelling orders and I started after hint. \Stay here, Mr. Banks! Sit down and go on with your game. Cut, you fellers, I'll sit in with you. I got to go back to brigade in an hour or so.\ How we did it, I don't know - now. , But in a war you take a lot of things and sometimes I think bullets and lima and splinters are not the worst of it. We heard the limbers rattling outside and then the command to march. t seems to me we playedor hours, We got concentrated trying to shut out our other thoughts and after a while the smoke and the heat and the cognac put a curtain between us and the rest of the world. And then I real- ized what a silence there had been for suddenly the cooks began to talk. The sound startled me, which was surprising -I was so used to it -hut it startled the captain more and socn he began to get Jumpy. \Can't you shut them up, Banks?\ he said. I finished the hand without answer- ing and on the next I became dummy and went out. The relief of the clean air was tre- mendous. I did not speak to the cooks. I listened to them a moment and sud- denly I felt a wicked delight that they were getting under Rathbone's skin. They were under mine, too. It was no time. I thought, for sonorous reading of the Bible. So I walked away to where I could not hear them. I heard instead the low thunder of the guns. It was our own artillery. Whatever the Germans were doing, we were giving them hell. Then, suddenly, from our shack there ! was a flash of light, someone came out and I heard the captain yelling in , a queer falsetto: \Patterson! Sergeant Patterson! Where the hell is Sergeant Patteation?\ It seemed to me that the Geft arts, I ten miles away, must hear that voice. ! The high, mad ring of it was so alarm- ing that I ran without thought toward ; Rathbone. When I got there a corporal I was standing before him. \Sergeant Patterson is with Lieuten- ant Winthrop. sir.\ i The corporal's voice was in the tone i of a doctor talking to a delirious pa- tient, Then Rathbone's yell rose again. I Quick!\ \Equipment air?\ \A saddle! Why the hell do you • I met Winnie on the way up. He was on a stretcher, being carried to a field hospital. There were lots of stretcners; why did I happen to look at this one? Winnie was so lad to see me he al- ' most got up an walked. I halted my men and made the stretcher bearers put him down. \It's nothing,\ he said. \A flesh wound in my leg. These boys picked, me up. But look, Bill, what happened to ..D Geo id r y g o e u ?\ see him?\ \See him! On that horse! He came up long after I'd taken the guns out of the limbers. We were all walking. And him on that horse! Up there! Lis- ten, he told me to go back, said he'd go on with my men. I wouldn't. He cracked me across the face with the I butt of his whip. Look, here's where he' hit me. It knocked me out; I fell down' and when I came to the outfit had gone on. I tried to catch up and this shell splinter got me. But on a horse, Bill! On a horse! Up there!\ Winnie stopped out of breath and it was a while before he could go on. \Look he said, finally. \You got to find him. Make him be reasonable. He'll get the outfit in trouble. He's drunk, I tell you -or crazy.\ Whittle sank back then, exhausted. I leaned over him and said. \He wasn't drunk, Winnie. Was he cra I zy co ? u \ ld see his face plainer now in the gray dawn light. \I don't know,\ he said. His voice dropped down to a whisper. \I tnink he said something about Caroline.\ I found the outfit in the woods. The Germans had counterattacked: our guns had stopped them. The first two guns were wiped out with their crews. George Rathbone was dead with more than 30 bullets in him. It was alter the armistice before I got over wondering about George and Win - Me and Caroline. Then I found out. I was sitting with Casey in a Y. M. C. A. hut. He was reading a detective story and I was running through one of those little khaki Bibles the boys used to carry over their hearts to AAP the bullets. The Bible had become, late- ly, a hobby of mine. Suddenly I came to a place in Second Samuel: \And it came to pass in an evening - tide, that David arose from off his bed and walked upon the roof of the kin's house: And from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the wom- an was very beautiful to look upon. \And David sent and inquired after the woman. And one said, is not this Bath-sheba, the wife of Udall the Hittite? \And David sent messengers and took her . . .\ I read on down the page. I knew the passage -it was about a war and Joab was commanding the army in the field And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joe\) and sent it by the hand of Uriah. \And he wrote in the letter saying, set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle and retire from him, that he may be smitten and die.\ I smiled, thinking of the wicked days of David. Well, the battles couldn't have been so hot without machine guns. But imagine anyone doing that nowadays . . . falling in love with the wife of one of your men and then or- dering him ... I stopped thinking suddenly and for a while I stared ahead of men. Then I spoke to Casey. \Look Butch.\ I said. - The .sight George broke-\ He looked up quickly -we all did when anyone mentioned George \Look Butch, the cook was reading from the Bible. Would you recognize what he read?\ I gave him the book and watched the high color ebb away from his hard, weathered face. Then I took the Bible away from him. - That's between ourselves, Butch.\ \Yes he said. \The war's over.\ -THE END - Carbon monoxide poisoning, usually caused by operating an automobile in a closed garage, takes an annual toll of between 500 and 700 lives in the United States. During the summer of 1918, a detail of 106 enlisted men of the United States navy, and four officers, laid a nine inch, all screwed, fuel oil pipe line along the Clyde canal, in Scotland, from Glasgow to the Firth of Forth, approximately 36 MUM. ommintimommmimmommuit 11111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111110, said. \Where are you going, Captain?\ / = BUCKING BRONCO \None of your damn business. Who = the hell are you?\ Theee was some excuse. I suppose, in the darkness, for his asking. - Banks. Do you need me?\ Ile became, suddenly, quieter. - You're in command here,\ he said. \Wait for orders.\ The corporal was back with Rath - bone's frightened horse. Rathbone vaulted into the saddle and was gone. Casey came out then from the shack. \Did the captain get orders?\ I asked him. \Orders hell.\ said Casey. He was — half drunk from the brandy. \Threw = away his cards and started to yell. It was the cooks got him.

His laugh had an ugly ring to it. \Gone!\ he repeated. \Gone m&ay, that's where he's gone! And yet it seemed to me that, in that to take comma.nd, he waa. in fact. com- pletely gone.

It's hard to give anybody who hasn't seen it an idea of the confusion of war. Outfits would start going without knowing where, and when they arrived it seemed like a coincidence. There were so many flashes of luck and queer I workings of late that nobody could ex- plain; like finding myself lying in a tilled hole with a boy I d gone to school! with and hadn't seen since a.tal God knew how he'd got there; and I had a friends who stwnbled over somebody In a dugout that he'd sworn to shoot o sight only he thought he lived in New Zealand.
