Many un army officer who had been far from Iho front timing the war was suit up to the combat division nnd given an opportunity (o play the war game for his own amusement null without thought of thi! soldiers who had no Intention of remaining in the nnny. There were lung bikes mid hard drills and fancy maneuvers for the benefit of commanding officei'B and visitors which tilled the American citizen- soldier with righteous indignation. 1 think Ihla has been Iho reason why so many who served In the war have been against, the plans of the regular army since that time. * * Immediately after the Armistice large forces wore sent from each of the allied armies into eastern Germany, occupying Hie territory up lo ami for a few miles beyond Hie Milne.

The divisions which wer6 sent to Germany were mostly those which had been engaged longest in the fighting. The theory was that this would be a period of rest. It actually bocame a time for discipline, drill, and dissatisfaction. The further we get from these conditions tho less important they may appear to us, but the soldiers who were over seas have probably not .forgotten those dreary months or waiting after the war was over, while statesmen and politicians quarreled and banqueted and paraded at l'urls. Of course it was impossible to send all Hie troops home at once or to demobilize all within a few days.

CATCHING HOLD OF PEACE, By Ruth Cameron Did you ever have a feeling as If for a moment you hud caught hold of the tall end of peace? That phrase Is not mine. It was opined by a friend of mine, coined out ot a moment of emotion. We bud bad been silting for four or five minutes in silence upon a knoll to which we hail climbed,• looking out upon a landscape of low bills and fertile valleys nnd apple orchards and pleasant farm houses and golden pumpkins piled high against gray barns. Hardly a breath of air wns stirring, Iho long styidows of late afternoon lay quiet, ilvt-r all was the exquisite ha.:e of a perfect September day. Neither of us spoke for a moment and then my friend drew 'a long breath and said: "It seemed to me then ns it for a moment 1 had caught hold ot Hie tail end of peace." i don't Know whether that phrase means anything lo youjir uot. But if it doesn't, there may come a time when It does. A iinto when you. too, will fee] for an instant as if all tho tumuli and the restlessness and the discontent had fallen away from you and perfect peace come to take itfc place for a little while. Sometimes, as In this instance. It Is beauty that opens the door of our hearts and lets the restlessness out and the peace in. Then again, such a moment may come to ono when one is reaching out toward the Infinite in prayer and for an instant seems to make the connection with that toward which one is reaching. ticlf-abnegatlon is another one of the keys that can sometimes unlock the door of self. We let go, and iu letting go suddenly something light and hard and eager In our hearts seems to melt away and peace conies lo take its place. In the joy of service one can •sometimes get awny from the rest- While some of the divisions were - h-ssncss and discontent and sense AFTER THE ARMISTICE When observing Armistice Day It is in order lo also glance backward lo the days which followed the first Arnib.ticu Day. The un- i 'ortunale continuance of some•thing resembling a : : iute of war, although there was no actual fighting, had much lo do with the ;disappointments which came to the In Germany, others which bad been In the fighting were left stranded in the devastated region ot eastern Kiance. There they spent, a miserable winter without proper supplies end often without sufficient cloth-1 " ,1,,K inu and nearly alwa.\s without the ! * l'u.'l n.icessary to ke--p them warm. Northeastern France is anything but a plensuut locality in the long, cold winter time. There were also a good many in l i-'raitce who had achieved rank and pay much beyond that, which they would have when they got home, and those clung to their foreign assignments like the proverbial sick kittens do to the warm bricks. They made all kinds of excuses to keep parts of Ihe American army in the foreicn hind which no longer of ultimate futility lhat so often haunts one ill moments of would- be pleasure, and can lay bold of the sense of peace. One docs not perhaps think of iove and peace together. One ihink.s of love as more a troubling Yet I think there is also a kind of love that Tennyson meant when lie said "Low look up lb" : harp of Life and smote on all the chords with might, smoio the chord of self, that trembling, passed in music out of sight." Amlel has a most beauliful definition of the way to find peace. It is a tribute lo religion as the surest door lo peace lhat he doeis not promise us that we shall have peace for a little while this way, but suggests u peace that will last. Says Amlel: "To win true peace a man needs to feel himself, directed, pardoned , and sustained by a supreme power, j to feel himself in the right road wanted them "ml which ih.:-v no ; at the point where dud would have I d to burden with their j " lln 10 ll0 ' 1,1 01<it!r witI « «od »"d ! longer des! presence.

The representatives of liie Allies came together iu 1 *01 -18 and instead of promptly de-elding ihe questions before them, put iu months of debute, intrigue, ami playing of petty politics. At Ihe time of the armistice Ihe spirit of Ihe Allies was at ihe top notch ot unselfishness.

It Isn't much that she is Aged and gray and worn. I had expected that. It was more the way she lives— The drab and ugly things Which hem In her existence.

When Oousin Tom Timmons married Esther Smart She was a queen— A fullblown girl upon whose cheeks The petals of the. rose Bloomed naturally. There was some talk about It. They wondered how Tom managed it. He was a sort of shrimp, Lean, wizened and prematurely old. Well, they've had ten children In eleven years. The queen is hlowsy, 111 kept, druggly— A woman broken on the wheel Of thirty years. Old Tom's all right; He's had a second blooming. He's fat and round— Looks younger than he did Ten years a^o.
