(By Associated Press.)
In Mesopotamia General Marshall
has advanced north-northeast of
Bagdad, capturing two towns and
nearly 900 prisoners. '
The Turks avoided battle at Kifra,
100 miles northeast of Bagdad, and
Ued toward Kirfuk, about 160 mile?
north and on the main road to Mosul,
apparently the British objective.
A retreating column was attacked
and more than 500 prisoners taken".

His request was granted but Mack

to the front when an officer showed

CHAPTER IX Continued.
Still and all, the chaps taking over
are entitled to some information as
to the particular enemy they are go
ing to fight. It makes a great dif
terence. ihe 'Prussians are nasty
ngnters. 1 mean by that that they
keep at it night and day and don t
seem to have any sense of trying to
make things easy tor both sides.
There's no reason why a fellow
shouldn't be reasonable even if he is
at war. I have heard it said that the
Prussians are the best fighters in the
German army. I, personally, don't
think so. When they come to close
quarters they will fight until there is
no hope, then they quit.
Now the Bavarian is sort of a de
cent, gentlemanly bird, with some
sense; but he'll go a step further than
the Prussian when he is at close quar.
ters, and will keep on scrapping when
there is no hope like a Frenchman
or an Englishman or a Jock or a Cana
dian. He s just that much better than
the advertised Prussian,
Your Saxon, now, he's another
breed of cats. He is a big, good-natured,
blond ,beggar, and he is per
fectly willing to lay off the sniping
and the nasty work any time and be
friendly. We were in one sector sev
eral times where the trenches were
only 30 yards aparf.
When the Saxons came in they
would let us know it, and all hands
would start doing the brother act.
They knew they could trust us and
we knew we could trust them. A Jot
of them could speak English, and
they would hop up on the parapets
unarmed and shout across to know
if we had any fags. Then both sides
would start joshme.
There would always be some of the
baxons who knew more about Lon
don than the men did who came from
there, and they would swap yarns
aoout tne places tliey both knew,
Once I remember all of us got so in
terested over an argument as to how
long the war would last and which
side was going to win that we almost
came to blows.
One of the officers put a stop to it
oy going between the lines this, m
broad daylight, mind you and tell
ing the Saxons that if they didn't get
down he would order them fired on
On the whole, they were good,
mendly teiiows, and we liked them.
.1 remember about the time that
Roumania entered the war: they had
ii uourc we uiu ana ioid us aoout
it. When Bucharest fell they
snouted the news across to us and
we called them bloody liars. There
was a little bad feeling for-a dav or
two and we didn't let them put their
neads up. ao tney began to stick up
signs telling us what boobs we were.
We all had a shot at the signs.
One night some of us sneaked over
with a piece of old wire cable we had
found and hitched it on to the Saxon
barbed wire. Then about 50 of us
got hold and gave a heave all to
gether. We pulled up a section of
the wire and it made an awful noise,
and the Saxons cut loose with every
thing they had in the way of ma
chine gun and rifle fire. I fancy they
must have thought there was half a
battalion or more out there fussing
with their wire. Next morning they
saw what had made the disturbance
and we joked them some more. They
took it in good part.
One time someone over in the
Saxon trench got an old cornet and
started playing toot a toot toot,
toot. After a while he just played the
first part and the Saxons finished off
the last two toots vocally. Then we
joined in and tooted, too. We kept
it up all one day like a lot of kids, un
til the officers came around and put
a stop to it.
Well, this time I m telling about
there were no good-natured Saxons
against us there were Prussians.
The fellows we were taking over
from told us to be careful of snipers.
We didn't need to be told that, as we
had been on this sector before and
knew just how bad the snipers would
be if they were Prussians.
I have to hand it to the Prussian
snipers for bravery.. They were as
bold as brass, and as a common thing
would get out between the lines at
night and stop there in the daytime
concealed behind dead bodies or in
shell holes or whatever there was
and then put at us. As a rule I think
that these snipers were officers.
On several occasions they even got
through our lines and hid to our rear
and sniped at us. Think what nerve
man must have had to do a stunt
like thatl He. was nearly sure to ret
caught and not a chance for life if
he was taken.
Another nervy ' thing they pulled
quite often was this: A German of
ficer would dress in an English offi
cer's uniform and deliberately come
over and drqp into our trenches and
stroll along asking questions of the
rnen. Usually he would wear the-R.
E. uniform, and would be some man
who had been educated in England,
and who was more English thanthe
English themselves in manner ' of
The very boldness of it made the
scheme successful. They got away
with it as a rule, too. I have known
of at least six cases of the sort in my
sector, although I never actually saw
but one. I remember one chap who
was caught. He was taken before a
lieutenant named Barrett. He greeted
Barrett cordially with "Ah, Lieuten
nat Barret, I believe. I had a shot
at you a night or two ago and came
jolly near doing you in.
"How do you know my name?"
The German laughed.
"Really, old chap, you mustn't
ask," he said. "That's my business.
Then he weent on to tell about kill
ing two officers some time before, giv
ing their names and the time when
they were killed. It all checked up,
This officer was taken to the rear
and probably shot, although I do
hot know about that. His courage
and coolness certainly merited some-
thing better. The bravery and will
ingness for sacrifice is not all on one
side in this war.
When we got into our front trench
and tried to get settled down for the
10 days of discomfort we found things
bad. Ihe trench was knee deep in
