Then Tlonald Ohartley wont down to his call and. for a time, became a memory. The a.econd portion of the committee was a com- mon person named Bovington Moseley.

The battle may join In earnest at any moment now. .Cbartley, standing on 'the fringe of a cluster of officers, which Included the German Headquarters I Staff, peered through the hedge on tbe height 'and looked out acroe; French soli. A mile away be aaw a glimpse of-khaki, and wondered why the German artillery did net open, but then he made out a wagon with-the red cross ou it Tbe khaki fiyurea spread out over the ground, and now aad then they lifted up something long and limp and In khaki ana put It on a stretcher. There had been, some outpost work and tills was tne sftermath of It. Away: on his right front, four tboniand yards from him, a cloud of dust made br the feet of ntanhtac men rose from the ground. Tbe guns at hto rear be- .fan to shell methodically. Tbe sound many men singing the "Marseillaise" floated to Mm from the distance.

"Thou shalt. want ere I want" Is the motto of a famous family. It should have been Edward Chart- ley's; He turned the current: dynamo that ran the lathe, and before n minute had passed he had for- gotten everything but the thing he was patiently making. So far it was but little heaps ot Inordinate mechanisms, lint he had the vision to see would be when the last screw was home aud tlie last Iplnt was brazed. T-hV.raom was lit by skylights glazcil with frosted glass.-pn which the shadows of heavy bars fell.
