The American advance in the Argonne. Shells and cartridge for American shooting guns being unloaded from a narrow gauge railroad at an ammunition dump behind the American lines in the Argonne. Under cover of night a horse-drawn vehicle which doesn't make as much noise as an engine and isn't so likely to be observed by the Boche, will transport the ammunition to the front.
