OF GAS FSGHTin
Troops in Battle Continuously
40 Days Return Laden
With Medals; Half of
New York. Feb. 2. The White
Star liner Celtic arrived here today
from Brest, bringing 3,114 Ameri
can officers and men from overseas.
On board the Celtic was the entire
personnel of the first gas regi
ment, the only offensive gas troops
employed by the American expedi
tionary forces. The remainder of
the passenger list was made up of
casuals from all parts of the coun
try. Maj. John B. Carlock of San
Francisco, commander of the gas
regiment, told a first-hand, gripping
story of the organization's activi
ties, from the time it went into ac
tion with the British forces in Jan
uary, 1918, until the war ended. The
regiment, he said, fought successive
ly on every American front, suffered
casualties of half' its enlisted
strength of 1,500 men and returned
with 80 of its members wearing the
croix de guerre, 20 wearing the dis
tinguished service cross and with
12 of its officers recommended for
distinguished service medals.
, Fought Constantly 40 Days.
The gas troops, Major Carlock
said, did their bitterest fighting at
Chateau-Thierry, St. Mihiel and In
the Argonne forest, working con
tinually for 40 days at the battle of
"It -is not generally known away
from the firing line," he said, "that
gas regiments, leading, as they did,
every offensive, were subjected to
perhaps .greater danger than any
other troops. This is borne oufby
the fact that 50 per cent of our reg
iment, both officers and men, are
"Our sacrifices were well reward
ed, however, for we learned from
captured Germans and from other
sources that our work was playing
havoc with the enemy' in casualties
and in, the destruction of morale.
Had our two gas regiments and
three battalions, which were train
ing, been able to enter the conflict
earlier, the end of the war, I be'lieve
would have been hastened."
Major Carlock described three
methods of gas attack used by the
American gas forces the cylinder
method, the projector and the four
"The cylinder weighed about 130
pounds." he Jaid, "and'earried from
60 to 70. pounds of liquid gas. We
would turn loose from 500 to 5,000
of these on one front simultaneous
ly. They were used exclusively for
"In mobile warfare and in attack
ing concentrations of enemy troops
we employed the projectors, elec
trically operated, which hurled 60
pound bombs containing 30 pounds
of gas against the enemy.
"The . four-inch Stokes mortars
were used chiefly to break up ma
chine gun nests. We had these timed
so that they would burst over a
machine gun nest and shower gas
or theremite, which is molten metal,
over the gun crew." ,
Maj. C. Brent, formerly Episco
pay bishop of the Philippine Islands
and chief Chaplain with the Ameri
can expeditionary force, was among
the officers arriving on the Celtic.
The moral victory of the soldiers
against temptation, he declared, was
as complete as was their victory
against the enemy.
"I have seen them in war and in
play," he said, "and nothing can be
said in their favor that would be

After lunchedn. Miss Bane ush

rigid, as- though they moved, in a
spotlesj -xistencg ; Rudolph, Junior,
aged 6, and Doris, who, at the age
of 8, was shooting up so rapidly
that Irma never saw her without
feeling that she was doing it on pur
pose. Under the directing eye of
Miss Bane, they made the rounds of
the table, gravely performing precise
courtesies and arrived finally before
their mother, whom they contem
plated in wondering admiration, as
if she were some strange fairjr prin
cess. Irm gathered them in impul
sively, one under each arm, and em
braced them rapturously.
Mon Amour, from his high chair
specially made, began to bark - in
angry thin yapping. -
"There, there; I won't kiss them
any more," said Irma soothingly.
"Did it make him jealous? No; he
shan't be teased."
"And how old are you, dear?" said
Amy to Doris.
"Eleven, going on 12," said that
young lady innocently.
"What!" exclaimed Mrs. Delia
bane, in a shriek. "Who told you
to say that? Tell me at once, Doris
"Mr. Laracy," said the child, look
"Mr. Laracy is a very impertinent
person," said Irma, looking daggers
at that young joker, who had retired
in convulsions of mirth behind his
plate. But as the laugh was general,
she yielded to it. "Jap, I'll never
forgive you she's quite too enor
mous as it is!"
"Why mother?" said Doris, opeu-
mg her eyes. ,
"Never mind, my dear," said the
mother. "Now be good children
and behave properly, and don't sit
down in the grass," she added im
pressively. The children nodded solemnly
and went' out. The next moment,
they heard them whooping joyfully
as they ran out to the motor.
'At S o'clock the motors were
brought out for a run into the city.
Laracy, in the runabout, shot ahead
with Mrs. Challoner, while Tody
Dawson, at the wheel of the great
touring car, directed the stowing of
the .valises, and d copious supply of
rugs against the return home.
"What about Mr. Challoner?" said
Amy, who found herself in the back
seat with Kitty Lightbody.
"Jack? My, you are an innocent
little thing!" said Mrs. Lightbody,
rolling her large china eyes. "Take
husbands along! Say, child, we're
out for a good time." She began to
hum merrily to herself, wagging her
head in time with her feet, which
had already begun to dance. "Lordy
me, I'm just expiring forgone real
"But there are not enough men
to go around, it seems to me," said
Amy, concealing her amusement.
Mrs. Lightbody looked at her with
a little suspicion.
' "Didn't Irma tell you? Charlie
Pardee and Captain Barrisdale are
going to join us."
"I'm really quite a country mouse,"
said Amy maliciously, for she had
certain scores to settle; "you must
help me not to make any mistakes."
.-"In what way?"
"Tell me who belongs to -whom.
I don't want to make ah enemy of
Mrs .Challoner. Is it Pardee ,or

"I guess not!" said Kitty. Light
"Oh, I see!" said Amy, laughing.
"I was dense, wasn't I?"
"When I say 'property' " said
Mrs. Lightbody, hesitating between
two fears, either to appear too rapid
or not rapid enough. '
"Oh, I understandperfectly. All
right; I won't trespess."
"Of course, when I say 'prop
erty,' " said Mrs. Lightbody, looking
a little vorried, "that's just an ex
pression."' "Now she's going to explain."

delight while her companion floun

What Gladys does, the Lord knows!
You can't stop all flirtation just be
cause you're married can you?"
"My dear, that would be too bore

body, who prided herself on a sense
of logic. "Of course, you're just a
bride, and that's different. But af

burst out laughing. v
"What are you laughing at, my
dear?" said Kitty anxiously.
"Thinking what a splendid chap
eron I'm going to be.
"My dear, I suppose you thought
I was frightfully sniffy last night,"
said Mrs. Lightbody, who had a
suspicion that her companion was
laughing at her for some reason or
other and ascribed it to a desire to
even up the score. "I. was; but I
didn't know who you were, did I?

was too amused to cherish resent
ment, for, by this time, she had
come to perceive Kitty Light
body's place as a foil to Irma and
Gladys Challoner a heavy center
piece, diverting arid useful for the
purposes of contrast. .
"But you mustn't mind me it's
just my way," continued Mrs. Light
body, whose bad manners were in
stinctive. "Really, I admire you,
my dear, and I'm sure I'm going to
like you enormously."
"Thank you." ' ,
"And I hope you'll like me," add
ed Mrs. Lightbody, who gave her
confidence generously. "Every one
makes the goat of me, but I don't
mind. I'm for a good time in this
little burg a short life but a merry
one I Don't think I haven't had my
trials I have!" she continued,
screaming in Amy's ear against the
whip of the wind. "I would be in a
sanatorium now, if I wanted to take
things seriously. But what's the
use and, then, your husband isn't
worse than any one else's, is he?
What's the use of quarreling? Let
him go his way and you go yours.
I'm going to enjoy myself, I am!"
They were passing -out of the
open country into the suburbs of
New York, through the shanty
civilization of mingled hordes, who
watched the swift passage of the
world from communal flats, with
tired, memory-haunted eyes, hoping
for the day when they, too, would
move on. Incompleted factories;
franie shelters to let; parceled lots
shaggy with unkempt grass elbow
to elbow with pretentious brick
stores; garish trimmings; noise and
confusion;, transitory thrift -tag-nant
acceptance of life crowded
about them in these multitudes who
had camped the day before and
would crowd dustily on with the
They did not comprehend poverty
or have the illuminating vision
which sees beyond mediocrity the
climbing generations. Poverty and
mediocrity offended . their delicate
nostrils like the odor of some dis
figuring disease. On Amy it had a
dapressing effect like the conjured
terrors of a sermon. Poverty ex
isted as a warning the harvest of
evil. It brought her closer to An
drew, to what she had dreamed of
making of their marriage. While
Kitty was rushing on torrentially,
she was peering out at the soiled
children, the old women set in the
gaping windows, the bleakness and
the shiftlessness that rolled on like
a Gypsy caravan. .
She made sudden resolutions. Her
husband should never be to her like
Kitty Lightbody's or Gladys Chal-I
loner's. What she did, she would
do openly, with his full knowledge.
A little season of youthful extrava
gance, to feel the fever of gaiety and
to grow tired of it. Afterward in
a few years to grow into woman
hood and responsibility. It was right
that she should have this hour her

But all at once, ahead, the great
Williamsburg bridge, with its elec
tric necklaces, leaped across the
melting night. Beyond the dusky,
rolling river, shot with glowworms,
the blazing towers of New York
flamed against the horizon; fiery
balls of light, tossed above the the
atric flash of glass palaces which
reached upward to the conquest of
"Don't you love it?" said Mrs.
Lightbody ecstatically. -"Don't ypu
just love it?"
They glided skilfully among con
centrating hordes, checked and held
in new multitudes, multitudes that
had the feeling of the mingled east.
They were caught in the jam of the
holiday hour, surrounded by wab
bling peddlers' wagons, Hebrew,
American and negro; trucks with
brawny, half naked drivers;
thronged trolleys, white with the
last warmth of the summer; long,
grim funeral processions jogging
back to life; strident, creaking cars
packed with family parties; medioc
rity everywhere on wheels, happy,
hot and noisy, eying , them with
covetous admiration as -they , the
privileged caste, passed, unrelated
and irresponsible, through the
churning, struggling crowd.
They did not see the soiled pres
ent at their sides or divine the chal
lenge of the future. Ahead, across
the floating span, was the magic of
the night, a breathless, nervous city
pursuing the phantom of pleasure
with the same dynamic intensity
with which, during thejigly day, it
had scrambled for the wealth it
would leave for future generations
to enjoy. The tired masculine day
was over, yielding to the glittering,
feminine night, and in the hanging
gardens of the air was the feeling of
music and dancing. The night was
feminine; the night was theirs.
Each felt a quickening of the
nerves, an awaking appetite, a sud
den joy of existence, a sense of pos-
rsession by the right of her position,
her charm and her power; All the
extravagance of pleasure, all the
multiple electric allurement to the
moving color of laughing crowds
existed for them.
Kitty Lightbody, rebel against a
life of monotony and drudgery,
cried, with a staccato laugh:
"At last! My, it's grand to have
just one good time!"
They passed out of the high chill
of the river into the sudden warm
breath of the tenemented city and
ran down to the Langdon hotel,
"where the runabout was waiting."
Gangs upstairs, said Laracy,
with a fat flourish of his hand.
Amy sought hungrily through the
crowd in the vestibule. One glance,
and she experienced a quiet satis
faction. Beside Mrs. Challoner was
Charlie Pardee, a slim, blonde, youth,
with the usual flowing hair and
pleasing face, unmarred by lines of
heavy thought; Captain Barrisdale,
an Anglo-American mining Croe
sus, dark, heavy shouldered, copi
ously scented, and receptively hand
some, and behind them, as she had
divined he would be from the first,

Allies of Pneumonia
The poisons created by fermenting food-waste which
constipation holds in the bowels are the allies that make it
possible for pneumonia to fasten upon you.
The first question your doctor will ask is: "How are
your bowels,?" He knows how
open and entirely free from food-waste, the importance of
using cathartic which will completely empty the entire di
gestive tract, including the lower bowel, where most poisons
are formed. . '
Your druggist has a new,
SALINOS, which is fully effective if taken in cold water. It
will completely empty the entire digestive tract. It is a
remarkable preventive. Get a bottle for a Quarter (larger
sizes Fifty-cents and a Dollar.)
Be safe! Get ifloday! Take it tomorrow morning.

Allegiance to Germany
Coblenz. Feb. 2. Mass meetings
protesting against any proposed
separation of the Rhineland from
Germany were held recently in Co
logne under the auspices of the
league of freedom for the German
Rhine districts. A resolution passed
by the meetings, a copy of which
has reached the American officials
here, says: '
"We inhabitants oj the Rhineland
are firmly determined to oppose
separation of the parts of the prov
ince on the left bank of the Rhine
