Kentucky Ready To, "Go Dry" The greatest argument against prohibition has been the difficulty of enforcing it. This difficulty appears in local option.

Hut after shivering for a while, we began ripping the boards out of the barracks, nnd taking thu dividing boards from the benches that we used for beds. Lntcr, they gave each of .us a mnt-trcfilled with wood shavings, and a blanket that wus about as warm as a pane of glass. The mattresses were placed on the ground In the barracks, which were very damp, and after three or four days, thu shavings would begin to rot and the mnttresses to smell, In order to keep warm we slept nl close together as we could, which caused our various diseases to spread rapidly. When we were receiving our rations, the sentries would offer us nn extra ration If we would take n lash from their belts.

As at all important Herman railway stations, ' there wns a lied Cross booth on the plntform, with German girls handing out barley coffee and other things to the German soldiers. I saw a largo shnnty on the platform, with a Red Cross painted over tho door. I saw the girls giving barley coffee to the soldiers, and I thought I would have a try at It and nt least be pollto enough to give the girls a chnnce of refusing me. I wns refused all right, hut they were so nnsty about It that I put down my bead and let something slip. I do not remember Just what It wns, but It was not very complimentary, I guess. Anyhow, I did not think anyone near there understood English, but evidently some one heard mo who did, for I got an nwful boot that landed me ten or twelve feet away. I fell on my hands nnd knees, end nbout a yard away I saw a cigarette stub. I dived for It llko a man falling on a football, and when I came up that stub was safely In my pocket. And It stayed there until I reached Dulmen and hnd a chance to light It behind the barracks. If any of the other men had studied real tobacco, they would probably have murdered me, and I could not have blamed them for It. That wns the first and last clgnrette I got In Germany, and you can believe me when I say that I enjoyed It. There wns not much to It, but I smoked It until there was not enough left to 'hold In my mouth, nnd then I used whut was laft and mixed It with the bnrk that we made cigarettes out of.

Only, every now mid then some fellow would get all he could stand, and cither talk back or make a pass at somebody. Then he would get his cither a bayonet through the arm or leg, or a crash on the head with a gun butt. After an eighteen hour ride, without food or drink, wo arrived nt Neustrelltz. It was raining as we pulled In. As wo went up the grade to the town we could sco lights about a mile away, and we figured that tbnt was tho camp. The rain stopped and we remained In the cars for some time. Then, after a while, we knew our new guards wero coming; long before we could see them, we could bear the racket they made. Somehow n Herman tumnit do anything shipshape ami neatly, but nlways has to have a lot of noise, and running around, and swlno general confusion. are more orderly In their habits than the Huns. When thpy enme up, wo were rousted from the cars and drilled up the rond to the camp. When we got near the Herman barracks wo were halted and counted again, and made to stand Four-footed He Chalked on tha Door. wus brewed here" was" nor for" us though. I noticed that all the time he wns writing the word and giving us tho stationery, the sentry was laughing nnd having n great time with bis own little self, but I figured he wus Just nctlng Herman, und that nothing was Important about It We were nil tickled to death to get a chance to let our people know where to were, and each man thought a long time about what he would say, and who bo would write to, before he ever started to write. Kuch mun want-- 1 ed to sny nil ho could In the small space be had, and we v. anted to let our friends know how badly they were trentlng us without saying It In so many words, because we knew the Huns would censor the letters, nnd it would go hard with anyone who com- plained much. So most of the men said they were having a grent time and were treated very well, and spread It on so thick that their friends would figure they were lying because they had to. One fellow had an Idea that was better than that, though. He had been In Jail In Portsmouth, Englund, fur three mouths, for beating up a constable, und he had bud a pretty rough time. So he wrote n pal of his that s, he had been captured by the but that everything wns going nlong pretty well. In fuct, be said, the only other trip he hud ever been on, where be bad u better time, was the three months' vacation he hod spent In Portsmouth two years before, which he thought the friend would remember. He said that trip was better than this one, so the friend could figure out for himself how pleusant this one was. Kvcrybody thought this was a great Idea, but unfortunately not all of us bad been In Jail, so we could not all use It. Which was Just ns well, we thought, becuuse the would bo suspicious If all of us compared this vacation with others. A few of the men did not buve anybody they could write to, und some did not know their" friends' uddresses, so they would write letters to friends of the other men, und sign It with tho friend's nickname. As soon us u man bud finished his letter, he hnd to go out to the center of the camp, where they had built a raised platform. There the sentries took the letters, nnd the men formed around the Miuure. There were officers on the platform reading the letters. We thought they reud them there In the open, before us, so tbut we would know they were uot tampering with the letters, and we thought tho heaven would fall If they were getting so unkultured us that. Finally, all the men hud finished their letters and turned them over to the officers, who read them. And then we suw why the sentry' laughed. The officers tore up every one of the letters. They were anxious that we would see them do It, so none of us would have any hope tbut our friends would get word. Hut we suld to ourselves that, If It wus Information they wanted, they had us much as was good for them, which was none at all, becuuse I do not think ono letter In the bunch hud a single word of truth In It. Hut we were ull very angly and pretty low ufter tbut, becuuse It showed tho Huns stilt bud plenty of kultur left, ufter ull, and we knew there wus rough sledding uliead of us. Also, some of the men wero sore because they had wasted their time thinking up different wuys of tipping their friends off to the real stata of affairs, and all for nothing. Why they bhoiild worry about time, I could not see. Time wus the only thing we hud plenty of, and I fur one, thought we were going to huvo still more of It. doing buck to the burrucks we tried to sing "Pack Up Your Troubles," but there wus not much pep In It. We were not downhearted, though; at least, we said we were not. fler-mnnOer-inn- We Had Our Choice of Standing Up and Dying, or Falling Down and Be-- : Ing Killed. ever saw them run, except when the Foreign I.eglon was on their heels ut Dlxmude. When they got up to the dogs, they would first talk to them und then kick them, nmi after that, they would rest the wire nnd yell their rife "Zuruck I" at us. We all enjoyed thit Innocent pastime very much, and w were glad they had thu dogs. There yre some things the Hunt did that you Just could uot explain. For Instance, one of the Ilussluns walked out of the kuche, as we were passing, and we heard n bung! and the Husslnn keeled over and went west. Now, we hnd not done anything und the other Itusslans said he had behaved himself, worked hard and had never had any trouble. They Just killed htm, and that Is all there was to it. But not ono of us could figure out why. After we had been at Neustrellti for three weeks, they drilled us out of the camp to a railway station, and stood us in the snow for four hours waiting for the train. We were exhausted and began falling, one by one, and each time one of us fell, the sentries would yell, "Nlcht krankl" nnd give us the rifle butt. We had our choice of standing up nnd dying or falling down nnd being killed, nnd It was a fine choice to have to make. The cars finally pulled In. and as usual, the windows were smnshed, the doors open, and the compartments Just packed with snow. When wo eaw this, we knew we were going to get worse treatment, even, than wo had been getting, and many of us wanted to die. It had not been unusual for some of the men to tell the Germnns to nhoot them too, nnd it seems ns though It was alwavs a man who wanted to live who did get it nnd went west. However, nil of us nearly got killed when we reuched Wittenberg. Wlren the train stopped there, we saw n big wnrrnnlnnil nf sliced hrenil on the sta- tlon platform and we nil stared nt It. We stood It ns long ns we could, and then we made n rush for it. Hut when we got nearer, we saw that there were four sentries guarding It nnd four women Issuing It out to the Herman soldiers. They would not give us nny, of course. So we stood'nround nnd watched the Huns eat It, while they and the women luughed ut us, nnd pretended that they were starving nnd would groan and rub their stomuchs and sny, "Nlchts zu essen." to euch other, und then grab a big hunk of bread- und eut It. What we did not suy to them was very little Indeed. We were wild If nny men ever were. Then some of us said we were going to get some of that bread If we went west for It. So we started a fight, and while they were attending to some of us, the others grabbed and hid nil the bread they could. They rousted us back into the cars and we were Just starting tn divide up the bread when they caught us with It and took We were wilder than ever It away. then, but we could not do anything. It got colder nfter we left Wittenberg, and the snow blew Into the cars through the windows und doors until we were afraid to 6leep for fear of freezing. It wus the worst night I hnve ever seen, and the coal buukers on the Ynrrowdale seemed like a palace compured to the compartments, because we could ut least move uround In the ship, while In the train we could not move ut nil, and were packed so close that we could not even stretch our legs und arms. Some of the men did die. hut not In my compartment, though most of us were about the face. We thought that night would never end, but duy cume finally, and though It seemed to get colder and colder, we did not mind It so much. At about eleven that nionihig, we arrived at a pluce called Mlnden and saw a prUou camp there Just a stockade near the trucks with the boys out In the open. We wuved to tbem, nud they waved or two.

The Ilussluns were given fur worse treatment thun uny other prisoners. This wus for two reusons, as near as I could make out. One wus thut the ltusslan would stand most anything, whereas the Hrlllsh and French could ouly bo goaded to u certain point, und beyond that lay trouble. The other reason an wjiti. that UlU- - Husslgps. aent-Qerm- One morning the sentries picked out ten men from our barracks, of which I was one, and drilled us over a field near the knebp. There was n large tank In the field nnd we had to pump water Into It. It wns very cold, ond we were weak nnd sick, so we would fall one after another, not caring whether we ever got up or not. Fritz would smash those who fell with his rifle butt. We nsked for gloves, because our bands were freezing, but all we got wns "Nlchts." After we had been there for about an hour und a half, one of our men beenme very sick, so thut I thought he wns going to die, nnd when he fell over. 1 reported It to n sentry. The sentry cume over, suw him lying in the snow, yelled, "Schweln, nlcht krnnk !" grabbed him by the shoulder. nnd pulled hlui nil tho wuy ucross the field to the office of the camp commander. Then he wns placed In tho guard house, where he remained for two days. The next thing we knew, the Itusslans had been ordered to make u box, and were being marched to the guard house to put him In it and bury him. Another thing nt Neustrelltz. thnt wns pretty hard to stand, was the pretty habit the Huns had of coming up to the barbed wire and tensing us ns though we were wild animals In a cage. Sometimes there would be crowds of people lined along the wire throwing things nt us, and spitting, and having a great time generally. It wns hnriler than ever when a family party would arrive, with vater and mutter, and maybe grosvuter nnd gromtltter, nnd nil the little Hoche kinder, becuuse, as you probably know, the Hermans take food with them whenever they go on n party, no matter what kind, nnd they would stnnil there und sture ut us like the boobs they were, eating nil the tlm-- ' nnd we so hungry thnt we could After have eaten ourselves, almost. they had stared n while, they would begin to feel more nt home, nn.l then would start the throwlug und nplltlng nnd the "sehwelnhund" sangerfesi. and they would hnve a grout time generally. Probably, when they got home, they would strike off n medal for themselves In honor of the visit. Then. too. there were always Hun soldiers nn leave or off duty, who made It a point to pay us a visit, and though I do not think they were us hud us the civvies, especially the women, they were bad enough. We had one bucket In ench barracks, nnd as these buckets were used for both washing nnd drinking, they were nlways dirty. We boiled the water when we washed the clothes, to get rid of the cooties, and that left a settling In It that looked Just like red lend. We had to get the water from u hydrant outside of the barracks, und for u while we drunk it. Hut ufter several of the boys had gone west and we could not figure out why, n . man told us be thought the water was poisoned, und n II isslun doctor, who wus a prisoner, slipped us word nbout It ulso. So. after that, very few of us drank water from the hydrant. I was scared stiff at tlrst, because I had bud some of the water! but ufter that 1 did not touch hydrant wuter. It wus n good thing for us that there was always plenty of snow In Hermnny, und even luckier thut the Huns did not shoot us for eating It. It was about the only thing they did not deprive us of It wus not verboten. I thought I knew whut tough cooties were. In the trenches, but they were regulur mollycoddles compared to the pets we bud In the prison cumps. After we boiled our clothes we would be free from them for not more thun two hours, nnd then they would come thirsting back, with for veiigeunce. The camp ut Neustrelltz wus sur rounded by big dogs, which were kept Just outside the barbed wire. We hud them going ull the time. Kvery once In a while, some fellow would make KJ1 IttYiUJ nsJii't. ami. tlm uexi. tbiijg The First and Last Cigarette.

Since the advent of the latest when! crop the only llmltntlon upon American eiHirta to Kuropo has been the shortage of shipping. Iletween July and October 10 we shipped 0U8O,:WM bushels.

The result of Increased production nnd conservation efforts In the United Slates has been that with the cessa tlon of hostilities we'are able to return to a normal wheat diet. .Supplies that hnve accumulated In Australia, Argentine and other hitherto Inacces slhle markets may be tupped by ships released from transport service, nnd Kuropenu demand for American wheat probably will not exceed our normal surplus.

Heathen darkness which had so long cursed the earth was beginning to vanish. The casting out of Satan, the prince of the world, was about to take place (John 12:31).

With the guns In Kurope silenced, we have now to consider a new world food situation. Rut there can be no hope that the volume of our exports can be lightened to the slightest degree with the cessntlon of hostilities. Millions of people liberated from the Prussian yoke are now depending upon us for the food which will keep thetn from starvation. With food the United States made It possible for the forces of democracy to hold out to victory. To Insure democracy In tbe world, we must continue to live simply In order that we tuny supply these liberated nations of Kurope with food. Hunger among n people Inevitably breeds anarchy. American food must complete the work of making the world snfe for democracy. Lust year we sent 11,820,000 tons of 'ood to F.urope. For the present yenr. with only the Ktiropenn Allies to feed, we had (iriglnnlly pledged ourselves to a program that would have Increased our exports to 17,fi0OOO0 tons.

In fats there will be a heavy shortage In about :i,000,000,000 pounds pork products, dairy products nnd vegetable oils. While there will be a shortage of about three million tons In rich protein feeds for dairy there will be sufllclent supplies of other feedstuffs to allow economical consumption. In the matter of beef, the world's supplies are limited to the capacity of the available refrigerating ships. The supplies of beef In Australia, the Argentine and the United States are sufficient to load these ships. There will be a shortage In tbe Importing countries, but we cannot hope to expand exports materially for the next months In view of the bottle neck in transinil-innl- s, portation, We will have a sutllclent supply of sugar to allow normal consumption In this country If the other nations retain their present short rations or Increase them only slightly. For the countries of Europe, however, to Increase their present rations to a material extent will necessitate our sharing n part of our own supplies with them. Twenty Million Tons of Food. Of the world total, North America will furnish more than 00 per cent.
