Art Underground A good craftsman had carved the names of some of the dugouts on slabs of Btone with iiiiu etylu and fin- ch those which announced the "Veterans'. Villas" and' "The Cas- tle of. the Snails. 'I live in luxury, mon said a "young artillery officer, as he led the way to a bomb proof shelter very "lose to the German lines. It had real glass for its windows, and a green sun- blind, with furniture of snow-white wood and on the whitlow-ledge a bunch of poppies in a wine-glass. There were even sonic oil-colour paintings on the walls, talien from a chateau too much frequented by hostile shells. Another artillery tall, keen, 1ork-cyed fellow, from the South ic one could tell by the roll of his r's made a1 number of little mouse- traps of match boxes.

It is a country called Petite and reminded me of our Devonshire. It was so quiet and peaceful I first, looked at it that it was hard to believe the young soldier who said thul the wood opposite was full of German minenwerfers, and that a few days ago tlie French village below was j bombarded with shells, and that at any moment the place where we stood might be "marmitc" by the en- emy's "sfiventy-acvens." The peace was broken by a word or into the mouthpiece of, a tele- phone. "W are going to shell the enemy's front-line said one of the officers, "It will be worth watching." 1 looked over the parapet and over a clump of poppies to that billow of browu earth jiist beyond the French iines. It looked as though I could flick a pebble into the German trenches, and as I thought so some- thing larger than a pebble dropped is- lo them. It was a shell from a "soix- ante-fiuinze." Afterwards I paid a visit to the bat- tery which had fired those rounds, and found 'the gunners sitting at break- fast. The air was quiet again, and birds were Ringing, and a' French soldier was whittling a tune from Paris. The French gunners seemed satis- fied with their biding place, and en- joyed their though a shell might upset their coffee if the fellows over thti way could out iu a lucky shot.

Behind the treriches, along many roads, 4ntV loany villages, over a wifle stretch, I passed the soldiers pf France, and the officer who was'traveling with me said more than "After the battle is have many brave men left to figlit for France." A French' general spoke almost the same words, but at. greater length, and with emotion in hjs voice. "Npiis les aurbiiBi .We shall have Boches. First, because God is on'.our side, and Justice.

Well Fitted Trenches "Many of these trenches are con- crete lined throughout, and are fitted up with practically underground hous- es, with every conceivable kind of ac- commodation; drainage water systems laid out in pipes, etc. Complete Hopaitals "The general the division of British troops which arc at the front of the advance has just "trans- mitted to London, the report of nie medical staff, which makes the follow ing statement "in the German trenches which we captured 3-esterday we found two com- pletely equipped hospitals, one of them thirty feet under and the other 50 feet under ground.
