It wa noticed that the cure'
glaties had a peculiar color. A they
talked it was seen that the right
wa a mosaic of small pieces of
glan. It ha bern broken into five
piece and carefully glued together
again. Four crack ran in all di
rection between the cure' right
rye and all he looked at with it.
The left wa better. It had been
cracked in only two piece. A single
line interposed itself directly before
the middle of the cure' left eye.
Church I Wreck.
Missy-au-l(oi is on a hill. There
is a most pathetic wreck of what
ii once a church. It was small,
what would be called a little chapel.
A shell had neatly carried away the
roof and left the interior a prey to
.the element during the year of
fighting. The primitive benches, the
pulpit up at the right side are drop
iiig into decay. A small organ, its
wires hurst and it keys broken,
lu.d not been worth removing to
shelter when the inhabitants return
ed. The gilded decorations of the
altar are cracked and scarred.
Nearby, the big cemetery, once
filled with American dead, is now
quite empty. One cross remains.
Here is the story of France the
cure pursued the same policy for
his bells and for his glasses crack
ed ones are better than none at all.
Four dollars a month he receives
to live with.
It also typifies the daily life seen
by the cure. Some fives cracked
in five places, others in only two,
but ill of them cracked and mended
like old kettles. A ruined house,
a father killed in battle, a child not
growing up as it should, fields mark
ed by trenches and shell craters, land
scoured by chemicals and gasses.

but be glad to give her bell to Mis-sy-au-Boi.
And no doubt the cure
of Vatixbain could give to anyone
