gunners of tho Gray batteries could
not go on with their work under such
a hall-storm; thoy wero checkmated,
They Btoppcd llrlng and began moving
to a now position, whero tholr com
mander hoped to remain uudlHcovered
long onough to support tho 128th by
loosing his llghtnlnga against tho do
fondors at tho critical moment of tho
noxt chargo, which would bo mado aa
soon as Fracasse's men hnd been rein
forced. Thero wna an end to tho concus

around Dellarmo'a men, nnd they had

of tho spits of dust In front of their

"Down there's whero wo need the

by a word to tho signal corporal, who
waved hla flag ono two three four
flvo times. Como on, now, with

Ho camo with n burst of screams so
low in flight that thoy seemed to
brush tho back of tlio mon'a necks
with a hair broom at tho rato of a
thousand feet a second. Having
watchod tho result, Dollarmo turned
with a confirmatory gesture, which tho
corporal translated Into the wigwag
of "Correct!" Tho shrapnel smoko
hanging over Fracasso's men appeared
heavenly bluo to Dellarmo'a men.
"They aro going to start for us
soon! Oh, but wo'll got a lot of
them!" whispered Stransky gleefully
to hla rifle.
Dellarmo glanced again toward tho
rolonel's station. No sign of tho re
tiring flag. Ho was glad of that. Ho
did net want to fall back In faco of
a charge; to havo his men silhouetted
In tho valloy as thoy retreated. And
the Grays would not enduro this shower-bath
long without going ono way or
tho other. Ho gavo tho ordor to fix
bayonota, and hardly was It obeyed
when ho saw flashes of steel through
tho shrapnel smoko as tho Grays fixed
theirs. Tho Gray a had COO yards to
go; tho Drowns had tho tlmo that it

Strnnaky to 1i!b rlflo. Tho sontenco
wna spoken In tho midst of a salvo of
Hhrnpnel cracks, which ho did not
hear. Ho hoard nothing, thought noth
ing, except to kill.
Tho Gray batteries on tho plain,
having taken up a now position and
being reinforced, played on tho crest
nt top apeed Instantly tho Gray lino
roso und started up tho slopo at tho
run. With the purposo of confusing
no Icsa than killing, they used percus
sion, which burst on striking tho
ground, as well as shrapnel, which
burst by a time-fuse In tho air. Foun
tains of sod nnd dirt shot upward to
meot descending sprays of bullets. Tho
concussions of tho earth shook tho
aim of Dellarme'B mon, bllndod by
smoko and dust, as thoy fired through
a fog at bent figures whoso logB woro
pumping fast In dim pantomime
Dut tho guns of tho Drowns, also,
have word that tho chargo baa begun.
Tho algnal corporal 1b waiting for tho
gcaturo from Dellarmo agreed upon aa
an announcement. Tho Drown artil
lery commander cuts his fuses two
hundred and fifty yarda shorter. Ho,
too, iisea percuaalon for moral effect.
Half of the dlstnnco from tho foot
to tho crest of tho knoll Fracasso'B
men havo gono In faco of tho hot, siz
zling tornado of bullots, when thoro Is
a blast of explosions In tholr faces

are thoy In tho midst of tho first lot
of tho Drowns' shells at tho shorter
range, but ono Gray battery has cither
made a mlatako In cutting Its fuses or
struck a streak of powder below stand
ard, and lto shells burst among those
whom It Ib aiming to nsslBt.
Tho ground seems rising under tho
feet of Fracasso'B company; tho air la
split nnd racked and wrenched nnd
torn with hideous screams of Invisible
demons. Tho mon Btop; thoy net on

against an overwhelming
forco of nature. A fow without tho
power of locomotion drop, faces

through the instinct that leads a
hunted man In a street into an alley.
In a confusion of arms and legs, press
ing ono on tho other, no longer sol
diers, only a mob, they throw them
selves behind the first protection thnt
offers Itself. Fracasse also runs. Ho
runs from tho flamo of a furnace door
suddenly thrown open.
Tho Gray batterios havo ceased fir
ing; certain gunners' ears burn under
tho words of Inquiry aa to tho cauao
of tho mistake from an artillery com
mander. Dellarme's men aro hugging
tho earth too closo to cheer. A deslro

hearts, but they know tho danger of
showing a single unnecessary Inch of
their cranlums above tho Bky-llne. Tho
sounds that oscnpo their throats are
thoso of a winning team at a tug of
wur as diaphragms relax.
With tho smoko cloarlngi thoy see
20 or 30 Grays plastered on tho slopo
at tho point whero tho chargo waB
checked. Every ono of thoso prostrate
formB Is within fatal range. Not one

"Do you know whose property this
is?" sho demanded in a burst of au

perspiring freely at his work. "Sor

Already parts of the first terrace

A number of field-guns joined forces
with a battery of hlgh-anglo guns In a
