Boche airplanes might indulge them
selves, as our hosts were frequently
likely to remind us, lest we fancy our
selves too secure, I suppose we were
by no means out of hearing of the
grim work that was going on a few
miles away. The big guns, of course,
are placed well behind the front line
trenches, and we could hear their sul
len, constant quarreling with Fritz and
his artillery. The rumble of the Hun
guns came to us, too. But that is a
sound to which you soon get used, out
there in France. You pay no more
heed to it than you do to the noise
the 'buses make in London or the
trams in Glasgow.
In the morning I got my first
chance really to see Tramecourt. The
chateau is a lovely one, a fine example
of such places. It had not been
knocked about at all, and it looked
much as it must have done in times
of peace. Practically alt the old fur
niture was still in the rooms and there
were some fine old pictures on the
walls that It gave me great delight
to see. Indeed, the rare old atmos
phere of the chateau was restful and
delightful in a way that surprised me.
I had been in the presence of real
war for just one day. And yet I took
pleasure in seeing again the comforts
and some of the luxuries of peace I

must be even more delightful than it
was when I came to know it so well.
Tramecourt was to be our home, the
headquarters of the Reyerend Harry
Lauder, M. P., Tour, during the rest
of our stay at the front. We were to
start out each morning, in the cars, to
cover the ground appointed for that
day, and to return at night. But it
was understood that there would be
days when we would get too far away
to return at night, and other sleeping
quarters would be provided on such
I grew very fond of the place while
I was there. The steady pounding of
the guns did not disturb my peace of
nights, as a rule. But there was one
night when I did lie awake for hours
listening. Even to my unpracticed
ear there was a different quality in
the sound of the cannon that night. It
had a fury, an intensity, that went be
yond anything I had heard. And
later I learned that I had made no
mistake in thinking that there was
something unusual and portentous
about the fire that night. What I had
listened to was the preliminary drum
fire and bombardment that prepared
the way for the great attack at Mes
sines, near Ypres the most terrific
bombardment recorded in all history
up to that time,
The fire that night was like a gut
tural chant. It had a real rhythm; the
beat of the guns could almost be
counted. And at dawn there came
the terrific explosion of the great mine
that had been prepared, which was the
signal for the charge. Mr. Lloyd
George, I am told, knowing the exact
moment at which the mine was
to be exploded, was awake, at
home in England, , and heard it,
across the channel, and so did many
folk who did not have his exceptional
sources of information. I was one of
thrml And I wondered greatly until
I was told what had been done. That
was one of the most brilliantly and
successfully executed attacks of the
whole war, and vastly important in
its results, although it was, compared
to the great battles on the Somme
and up north, near Arras, only a
imall and minor operation.
We settled down, very quickly in-

Upon Italian Front Lines

against the Italian lines on Cady sum-

The attack .was broken. by the Ital-
egding POttf- f
deed, into a regular routine. Captain
Godfrey was, for all the world, like
the manager of a traveling company
in America. He mapped out our
routes, and he took care of all the
details. No troupe, covering a long
loute of one night stands in the west
ern and southern United States, ever
worked harder than did Hogge, Adam
and I to say nothing of Godfrey and
our soldier chauffeurs. We did not
lie abed late in the mornings, but
were up soon after daylight. Break
fast out of the way, we would find
the cars waiting and be off.
We had, always, a definite route
mapped out for the day, but we never
adhered to it exactly. I was still par
ticularly pleased with the idea of giv
ing a roadside concert whenever an
audience appeared, and there was no
lack of willing listeners. Soon after
we had set out trom iramecourt, no
matter in which direction we happen
ed to be going, we were sure to run
into some body of soldiers.
There was no longer any need of or
ders. As soon as the chauffeur of the
leading car spied a blotch of khaki
against the road, on went his brakes.
and we would come sliding into the
midst of the troops and stop. Johnson
would be out before his car had fairly
stopped, and at work upon the lash
ings of the little piano, with me to
help him. And Hogge would already
be clearing his throat to begin his

And yet the whole front seemed to
know that we were about. The sol
diers we met along the roads wel
comed us gladly, but they were no
longer, after the first day or two, sur
prised to see us. They acted, rather,
at if thev had been exftectiniz us. Our
advent was like that of a circus, com
ing to a country town for a long
heralded and advertised engagement.
Yet all the puffing that we got was
by word of mouth.

Paulist Choristers Will Sing
In Omaha for Stricken France
The Paulist choristers, who will be
heard at the Auditorium June 24 and
25, will soon arrive from the Pacific
coast from a successful tour of that
territory, where their eastern and
continental successes have been re
peated at every appearance. The net
profits of the tour of the Paulist
choristers are devoted to the sufferers
of stricken France, the, funds reaching
the needy through the French ambas
sador in Washington. Father Finn,
director of the choristers, is expecting
to raise not less than $100,000 for the
cause. His choristers sing without
other compensation than their travel
ing expenses and their ''board and
keep." On account of the rare educa
tional and moral influences which
membership in the choir commands,
Father Finn has been able to make
his selection of voices from the
choicest material. Tlifc result is an
organization of individual excellence
and ensemble perfection. The soloists
with the organization are possessed of
phenomenal voices and will be heard
in folk songs, art songs and selections
from operatic and sacred works. The
chorus work may be judged from the
fact that the Paulist choir took first
prize and all first honor trophies at a
competition held in Paris shortly be
fore the war and at which nearly 500
similar choirs from all over the
world competed. The choir also en
joyed the honor of appearing at the
Vatican, where the pope gave it an
audience and souvenirs of his esteem
