Kane. 1 • ••••••• T Paris,—"No human power could provide accommodations fast enough tor the great Influx of wounded such as came In after tbo greul drive In July," said the Rev. Dr. Prances U Frost, of Stolen Isluud, N. Y., Protestant chaplain of the American Ked Cross Military Hospital No. 1, at Noullly. "Many of the boys had to wall while the more serious cases were being cared for first. Some of them had not eaten in twenty-four hours or more. Borne were thirsty. All were lu pain. Yet there WBB never a word of complaint. The more they lost the more cheerful they seemed. One boy who had lost the sight ot both eyes told me that he considered himself lucky! 'It rulghl have been worse,' he said. "They get the fiuest cure possible, from both surgeons and nurses. It Is only while the camions are unloading llieir freight so fast that all cannot be ntlended at once." "The spirit ot Hie men Is a revela. tion. Naturally, every one expected great things of them. Hut they have far transcended all expectations. Want Friends. "It is not pulpit oratory that the boys waul," went on Or. Frost, "it Is a .friend. The opportunities for a chaplain to serve are too numerous to mention. Why, in ono round a day lu the fiO wards here at No. 1, I write letters home, I run errands and attend to business malters for them, besides being often taken into their confidence In regard to their persona] troubles. . They turu of their own accord lo the man who, they know, is there just for that—just to bo their friend. "One usually thinks of a chaplain at Ihe bedside ot the dying. It is there that we have our supreme calt, ot course. Sometimes they ask me lo pray with Iheni; sometimes they would rather that I prayed silently bo- side them. Often they thank me just for slaying with them until the end. They know that I will write home to their parents and it comforts them and helps their passing. And then"— Dr. Frost spoke like one who has had a revelation. "Humanity is experiencing religion all over again In the trenches. The deep religious feeling of these hoys who have stood face to face with lhelr Cod 'out Ihere' Is beyond description. One of them whom I attended in his last moments said to me 'Whatever wo are we have one common bond—religion.' That was a Jew! And his words were prophetic.'' WICHITA SENDS STAR PLAYERS.

To gasoline is added 1 percent, of toluol and 1% Per eent of alcohol. The mixture gives a sharper ignition than ! the base of that powerful explosive, simple gasoline, and while It exerts some deteriorating effect upon thu metal, the short life of the aeroplane motor at .the war front means that the motor Is discarded before the deterioration becomes serious.
