Mr. Empey's Experi-enceaDuringHisSeven-teen
Months in theFirst
Line Trenches of the
British Army in France
(OoPTrtght, 1917, br Thi Mrinnro Newipiper
One sunny afternoon our gun's crew
wns sitting on the fire step of n front
line trench, Just In .front of Gomme
Hnppy Houghton wns huslly engaged
In rigging up u flush Kcrcen to hide the
flare of our gun, which we were to
mount on the parapet Unit night.
Sailor Illll wns flowing u piece of
khukl cloth over IiIk tin lint, because
the night previous, while on Rentry
go, Htnndlng In the moonlight, with hlB
hend over tho top the rays from the
moon hnd reflected from his steel hel
met and n couple of German bullets
had knocked up the dirt within a few
feet of his head.
Ah wns usual with him, Hungry For
:raft wns wrestling with a tin of bully
beef, while "Curly" Wallace wns hunt
ing for cooties.
Ikey ITonncy, with our mascot, Jim,
was sitting on the lire-step, his buck
leaning against the traverse of the fire
hay, picking mud out of his harmonica
with n silver of wood. Jim seemed
hnppy and contented,' not knowing tho
fnte In store for him. Two days later
poor Jim wns killed by n Gorman bul
let and we hurled him behind the lines,
placing n little wooden cross at the
hend of his grave. After working u
few minutes at the hnrmonlca, Ikey
-would pause, put It to his Hps and
blow Into it; a squeaky, rattly noise
resulting. Then, with a deep sigh, ho
would resume the picking process.
I had Just finished a letter home and
wns sighing for tho time to come when
once again I would be able to say "hel
lo" to the old girl with the lamp In her
right hand guarding New York har
bor. Although It was warm and sunny,
the floor of the trench was about three
Inches deep in soft, sticky mud.
On my right I heard a low mutter
ing and a splashing In the mud, and
around the traverse, Into our flrebay,
carrying h bor of ammunition on his
shoulder, came the most weird-looking
soldier I had ever seen. As he passed
In front of me he turned his gazo In
my direction and a cold shiver seemed
to run up and down my spine as I
looked Into his eyes. They were un
funny; a sort of vacant stare, as If tho
owner of them was looking into tho
Grcnt Beyond. As this soldier stag
gered through tho flrc-bny, almost bend
ing double under tho weight of tho
ammunition nnd passed from view
tround tho traverse, it seemed to mo
as if tho Grim Reaper had stalked
Shuddering n little, I Instinctively
turned my eyes In tho direction of tho
rest of tho crew. They wero nlso
staring nt tho truverse around which
the gloomy-looking soldier had dis
appeared. My henrt sank to zero and I hnd a
linking sensation in tho region of my
stomach, nnd on tho parados In front
of me, llko n moving picture on n
crcen, flashed a cemetery, dotted nil
vcr with little wooden crosses. I felt
queer and uneasy.
Curly Wallace, in a low, half-fright
encd voice, exclaimed:
"Bllme me, that was 'Aunted Jerry's
srothcr, tho one who clicked it by tho
old lono tree. If you blokes want to
fct the creeps you ought to 'car 'Im
talk. Sorao o' tho fellows claim that
It's unlucky to get lm started. They
ye thnt ono o' 'Is 'carers la sure to

ir you fellows want to tyko tho
chance, I'll go over to 'Is section, which

left, and see If I can get '1m to tell
as about 'Is brother. Hut, now mind,
tnu fellow Is u llttlo balmy In 'is nap
per, so don't myke fun of 'im."
I confess that I wns glud to ho rid
af him, but my curiosity overcame my
rears, so I asked Curly to ko nhend.
The rest of the crew weakly assented,
wd Curly went nfter Jerry's brother.
fn ubout twenty minutes ho returned
with him. Jerry's brother came over
ind snt on tho flrestep next to me. Ho
it silent for a few minutes, nnd then,
to a thick piping, high-pitched volco
""Bo you want to 'ear about Jerry, do

My blood began to curdle.
Curly Wnlhiro,, placing his hnnd on
the speaker's knee, softly said :

Jerry's brother nodded In a compre
hending way, and reaching Into the
pocket of his tunic drew out a creased
nnd muddy piece of paper, which he
opened out upon his knee, and then, In
nu unnatural, singsong voice, which
sent shivers through us, recited the

Silently watching from tnorn to morn.

Whon night Is blnck, and wind's faint
Through Its shelltorn branches moans,

Thoy answer It with groans and groans,

And Death olts by and grins nnd grins,
And watches tho fast-growing score,

No wooden cross to mark their fall.
No tombstone theirs, no carvon rocks,
Just the Ion Tro with Its grim call,
Which forever mocks and mocks.
When Jerry's brother hnd finished,
n dend silence ensued. I nervously
lighted n fag, and out of the corner
of my eye noticed thnt Sailor Bill was
uneasily squirming on the flrestep.
Letting out n sigh, which seemed to
whistle between his teeth, our "guest"
"Jerry weren't much at cheerful
writing, because 'e 'ad n calling.
Even bnck 'ome In Blighty, 'c weren't
much for lights nor fun. 'E took af
ter our mother The neighbors called
cr 'aunted, too, but she weren't. She
could see things, like Jerry.
"This 'ere lone tree sentinel Jerry
writes about was an old tree In No
Man's land, about a 'undred yards from
our front-line trench. It was pretty
well knocked about by bullets and
shell fragments. It mudo a pretty good
guide post, stlckln' sort o' lonely like
up gainst the skyline nt night. Be
connolterlng patrols and houblng par
ties used It to 3how 'em the w'yo
back to their trenches, because,
y' know, out there In the blackness
It's easy to lose your w.'ye, unless
you 'nve spirits a-guldln' you.
"Lots of times English nnd German
patrols would meot near tho lone
tree, and many a 'nnd-to-'nnd fight
would tyko plnce around Its roots.
"At that part o the line It were
pretty ot, what with the rlflo and machine-gun
firing. The only time there
would bo a lull In the firing was when
a rcconnoiterlng patrol wns out In
front, and then, ns you know, you
couldn't lire for fear of a 'Ittlng your
own blokes. All around the lone tree
wero scattered many bodies, mostly
English and German. Some of 'em
ua been n-lyln' there for weeks, and
when tho wind wero n-blowln from tho
German lines towards us It were sort
of unpleasant In our front line.
"Every time tho captain would call
for soldiers for a rcconnoiterlng pa
trol, "Aunted Jerry, us yifu call Mm,
always put 'Is bloomln' nymo on the
list. It got so that nfter a while 'o
never asked if 'o wanted to go; the
enptnin would Just naturally put 'Is
uyme down ns agoln'.
"In our dugout, Jerry would tell mo
'ow many dead wero around tho tree.
Ow ' could count 'em In tho dnrk, I
don't know, but o could see 'o could
"Sometimes In the daytime 'e would
rig up a periscope on 'is own. und sit
on tho flrestep for hours alookln' out
Bending Double Under tho Weight of
In No Man's laud at the lono tree,
nnd the bodies around it. This sort
o' got on our captain's nerves, nnd
'e gave Jerry orders not to use a peri
scope. After this order Jerry used to
sit off by Mmself on the flrestep
u musln' and a musln'l The other
blokes laughed at Mm, but I knew
what ho were adoln' ' wero ntalkln'
to tho spirit of the lono tree.
"Then 'e got sort o' reckless, and he
cnuso it were ugalust orders for Mm to
uso u periscope, 'o used to, in tho
bloomln' daytime, stick Ms 'end over
tho top and gaze In tho direction of tho
lone tree. Bullets from German snipers
would kick ur the dirt nni tear tha
snndhags all around 'lm, but none of
'cm ever 'It Mm. No bullet vcr myd
could kill 'Aunted Jerry, ax you call
"The rest o' tha blokes In the trench
would pull Mm down off the flrestep.
They thought they were n-suvln' his
life, but Jerry weren't afraid from bul
lets. 'E knew, and so did I, thnt ther
ouldu't 'nrm Mm. Then our captain
e 'ad brnlns, e 'nd said that Jerry
was halmy, nnd gave orders to the ser
geant mnjor to tyke Mm bnck to tho
doctors, to send Mm to Blighty. Jerry
wno told nbout this the night before
e was to leave. 'E was greatly upset,
and did nothln' but tulk to the spirits
tho air was full of 'em I could 'car
their voices, too.
"That night about ten o'clock Jerry
was missed. The next morning 'e wns
still n-mlssln'. For two dnys nothln'
was 'enrd of Jerry. Then the Royal
Irish Wiles took over a sector of
trench on our right. A lot of our
blokes told 'cm about Jerry beln'
rnlssln'. A few of 'cm got nround me,
and I described Jerry to 'em, but I
weren't afraid for Jerry I knew
where 'e was 'e were with Ms spirits.
Tint night nn Irish patrol went out
and when thoy returned they brought
a bo&y with them; said they'd found
It nt the foot o' the lone tree. It were
.Terry, all right, but 'e weren't 'It no
where. Two bloomln' doctors exam
ined Mm, lookin' for wounds. 'E wa
dead, all right, nnd that bloomln' cap-

tnln 'e 'nd brains, 'e 'ad was re

tyke Jerry uw'y from Ms spirits, sc
Jerry crawled out to tho lone tree tc
answer its call. 'E answered It, and
now 'o's with the spirits 'o loved, am?
some time I'll be able to talk to Mm
E's with 'em, all right, I know 1
Just then Jim started to whimper;
I guess if the truth were known, wo all
felt llko whimpering.
Without another word, Jerry's broth
er got up, nnd, muttering to himself
pnsscd out of sight around the trav
erse. As he disappeared from view,
Sailor BUI exclaimed :
"Blawst my deadlights, hut If a
bloko like that ever slipped In thf
navy, In a fortnight's time 'o would
bloomln' well bo an admiral, becausf
'e would be thi only ono left In thf

Tills bloke only gets these fits occa
slonally 'E's a d d good soldier
always on the Job, and next to Cor
poral French nnd his brother 'Auntei?
Jerry, 'e's the best scout for wori
In No Mnn's land that's over put 8
foot In these blinkln' ditches. It's onlj
lntely that 'e's been 'nvlng theso spoilt
so often, and yesterday the sergeant i
major told me that 'e was under ob I
servntlon nnd thnt it would only be a 1
short time beforo 'o was shipped !
"Is it n fnct, Curly," nsked Hnppy '
"thnt this ,'Au'nted Jerry crawled out
there the way his brother says, and
that he was found dead without s
wound on him? If it's so, he must
have bad u bloody poor henrt and died
Curly answered: "It sure is so, be
cnuso I got It from a leftennnt in
'Aunted Jerry's section."
Jim was still whimpering. This go'
on Ikcy's nerves ; lie gave him a shnrr
cult on the side of tho head. Thi
wus the tlrst time n hnnd hnd been
raised against Jim since he hud joined
us months bnck. He guve Ikey u plte
ous look, und sticking his stump of a
tnll between hlsMegs disappeared from
tho fire buy. Two days later Ikey
mndo up for that ship, because nt the
risk of his life, during an nttack, ho
raced Into No Man's land under henvy
tire and brought In tho bleeding body
All afternoon we tried to bo as
cheerful as possible, but our merri
ment was Very artltlclal. Every laugh
seemed forced und strained. Haunt
ed Jerry had sure put the "kibosh"
That night Curly, Happy and I wero
on watch from ten to twelve, and, be
lieve me, we never spent n worse two
hours In our lives. There wns not a
word spoken among us. I wns think
ing of Haunted Jerry, and no doubt
tho other two wero doing likewise.
A few days later Jerry's brother
was sent back to Blighty, and no
doubt right now is In some lnsano asy-
mm in lsuguty communicating with
1 Haunted Jerry and his spirits.
