If the girls would take care of their lunch bags as carefully as they do their knitting bags, there would be less drop-stitching in the school harmony.

THE TARGET 2; FOR VALOR. There was a lull in the fighting and Charles Bristol, a private in the British Infantry Co. 3, sat in the dugout, thinking. A picture of his old home and mother came before his mind. He recalled one deed after another, deeds he wished he could blot out. He saw himself " caught with the goods " by a policeman after a rob- bery. He had been going with a crook. Charles, without any thought of anything wrong, let the crook lead him to rob a house. The real thief escaped but Charles was caught. His mother, broken-hearted and disgraced, had seen him before he went to jail. In his cell he had vowed he would do something to cover that disgrace. The very day he got out of prison he enlisted in the infantry. Not even his mother knew because he im- mediately went away with his com- pany. Absorbed in his reverie he did not know what was going on until his " bunkie, " said, " Get ready. We are going to charge over the top. " At the signal the British went over the top firing as they went. Bristol was fighting beside the cap- tain of his company when he heard a bang, and saw the captain fall. He struggled up and led his company into the fight that drove the enemy back. Then he staggered and fell into a shell hole. Charles had been shot also during the encounter. Af- ter a while a single stretcher came along. They were about to pick up Charles. After a mental struggle he gasped, " Get — the — Captain. He ' s — in — the shell— hole. " The men carrying the stretcher obeyed and taking the captain, went away. Had Charles made amends for his disgraceful actions? RUSSELL McCONNELL.

When America entered the war he enlisted and was soon promoted to the rank of lieu- tenant. He was among the first to reach the battle front in France. In the battle of Seicheprey the Germans attacked the first line. The French and Americans put up a hard fight but they were forced to re- treat to the second line. The next day the Germans were seen at a dis- tance approaching by thousands. James Burton fought side by side with the color sergeant. At last the color sergeant was killed and Burton injured. Hundreds of Huns were approaching with fixed bayo- nets. He picked the flag up and kissed it and handed it to a com- rade. " Hold it high! " he said, " for God ' s sake! Hold it high! for the soldiers will follow it. " He quickly turned around and rushed to a machine gun near by and mowed down the first line of rushing Germans. He turned again but alas! the bullets were gone. He was wounded in several places, but he died with a smile on his face, for he had helped to send the flag ahead, which had won the day.

THE TARGET 29 Some one should explain gently to the babies of the school that if they have to manufacture ammunition out of school materials they should send it to the soldiers instead of using it for civil wars. Save wheat! Conserve food! Eat rice-bread with cheery mood. TRUSTY, RED CROSS DOG. The battle for the village of Le Sonne had raged for seven hours and the wounded lay stretched along the road and fields, moaning and crying for water. The village had changed from German to French hands four times and the wounded were unable to be reached. On a distant part of the field lay Lieutenant Henri Leroux, who had been wounded by a German sniper concealed in a tree, on his way to the commanding officer with valuable information. Lieutenant Leroux had been sent from headquarters to in- terview a French spy, who was con- cealed in a neighboring village. The Lieutenant was returning with re- ports of great importance, as they related the coming activities on an important French supply base, the loss of which would seriously ham- per the present campaign. As twilight came on, the Lieuten- ant as he lay helpless on the ground with a bullet hole in the thigh, at the same time wished for water and bandages and wondered how he was to get his dispatches to head- quarters. The steady drone of rifle fire wore on as the combatants fought for the upper hand. Drop- ping off into a troubled doze, he was awakened by an object licking his hand. Opening his bewildered eyes he tried to rise and was sharply reminded of the wound in his leg, so he fell back with a moan. Then sud- denly he realized that beside him was one of those Red Cross dogs that do such noble work on the bat- tlefields. This particular one was an Airedale. Lieutenant Leroux, be- ing familiar with the kit carried by these dogs, felt on the left side of " Trusty, " as the brass plate on its collar bore that inscription, for the aluminum canteen. He found and unhooked it easily, and took several drinks and felt very much refreshed. On the inside of a leather pouch, carried by " Trusty, " were bandages and iodine, with which he dressed his leg, the dog meanwhile standing patiently. Then Lieutenant Leroux was struck with a happy though. He quickly placed the dispatches inside of the pouch and hastily scribbled a note telling he was wounded and how to find him. Then he placed the dog ' s head in the direction of headquarters and gave him a gentle pat, and the dog started off in the given direction. " God grant that he reach head- quarters safely, " he muttered out loud, " for if he doesn ' t the supply base and I are lost. " However, the Lieutenant now felt at ease in his mind, for he knew that the dog had been trained to carry dispatches also. Having found the road, " Trusty " traveled along at a steady loping pace, and by and by arrived at the vicinity of headquarters. There one of the guards called " Trusty " to him and felt inside of the pouch for a note he felt sure was there. Upon finding the note and dispatches, he immediately turned them in at head- quarters. The commanding officer of that sector was very much pleased to have the papers, but he felt anx- ious for the Lieutenant. So he had a searching party form- ed and they set out in the direction
