Here Is the story that was told to me
br Private Bryant as he lay wounded ln
the hospital ship!
" don't Jtut remember the date, "tt o
hnc not had time to think of dates lately.
Rut It was just over a week ao. Wo
,rerc somewhere In the neighborhood of
Bi Quentln. We had been fighting all

horses and late tlmt .night thought-we
had seen tho last of the Germans for a

Eae orders to saddle. We Jumped on
our horses, nnd nt the same moment
(hells began to burnt overhead. Our
horse" stampeded. The enemy's sharp
thooters were already In position, and
while ie were recapturing, our horses
shrapnel, canister shots and bullets were
making the air sing around us.
FIELD AnTILLEIlY IS DELATED.
"The German artillery fire Increased In
Intensity. We began to wait anxiously
for our own Itoyat Field Artillery to get
Into position. It was delayed by the fact
that the battery horses were being wa
tered. "Something had to he done, so wo got
the Maxims up, despite the withering
(Ire. Our boys soon got busy. It would
hue done you good to see how calmly
and quietly they went about their work.
"Our men realized the meaning of their
Job. It was to hold on until the artillery
came up. In other words. It was to save
the regiment from annihilation. Within
a few minutes they were sending some
MM shots In so many Beconds anions the
"Then the artillery arrived. We had
four guns against 11 for the Germans,
but some of those 11 were silenced.
"It was not long before tho Days were
Itching to charge. Almost before they
wpected It the bugle sounded nnd they
were off, 'hell for leather,' at the enemy's
'The not result of that little scrap was
the capture of 11 Krupp guns nnd many
Unfortunately, Bryant was left wounded
on the field nnd was made a prisoner
by the Germans. Ho lived for five days
on bread and water, all that the Germans
would supply him. On the fifth day a
detachment of French cavalry arrived,
rescued tho prisoners and captured tho
German troopers who were guarding

Brvant told me that in the action of

Gaston Bossier, a private In the Sixth
Cuirassiers, who Is known In civil life
as Darlno, a lyric artist ht the Comedle
Francalhv and a favorite of the Parlsl
ennei, tells the following story, which
reems almost an eclipse of tho blowing

ROMANCE, TRAGEDY AND COMEDY
IN THE THEATRE OF WAR
The French papers nre recalling an In
teresting reply which General Pau made
n yenr hgo, when his admirers proposed
to present him n sword of honor upon the
occasion of his giving up command of the
20th Army Corps.
"I certainly uhould not accept the sword
pf honor that you and other well-meaning
patriots thlhk of giving me," he said.
Such a recompense must be reserved
'or the man who shall load our victori
ous armies beyond Met and atrassburg,
beyond tho Rhine, Into the very heart of
tho German Empire. Ab for me, modest
worker In times ot peace, enemy to pub
licity nnd popularity. It Is sufficient that
I have the confidence of those who have
served under my orders, nnd the suffrages
of good people such nfl you."
At the village of Lourches, In northern
France, a wounded French sergeant, out
raged by German brutality, Bhot n Prus
sian ofllcer. Before being shot ho was
given wnter by a dauntless lad, Emlte
Despres, who thereupon was also con
demned to Immediate execution, Just as
tho soldiers were bandaging tho boy's
eyes preparatory to firing the German
captain, with a cruel smile, cried cynic
ally, "I give you life on condition that
you act as executioner of this sergeant.
He asked for water, you'll give him lead."
After a moment's hesitation tho boy
agreed, to the horror of his comrades.
Seizing a rifle, ho aimed nt the sergeant's
breast. Then, suddenly turning, he blew
n hole through tho sneering German. Ho
was hacked to pieces with bayonets.
La Preszo publishes an Interview with
the prlvntn soldier Turcot, who with his
comrade, Broussard, captured tho first
German flag. He Is now In the hospital
at Mortargls, slightly wounded In the
back by a spent bullet Turcot tells a
very modest story. Ho says ho lost his
regiment wandering In a wood, when ho
saw a wounded German standard bearer
trying to hide his flag. Calling a com
rnde, Turcot attacked the German and
seized the flag. Then came the hardest
part, the wlthdrnwal carrying the trophy
nmldt a storm of bullets. His knapsack
was pierced ten times and his rifle broken
In his hands.
A correspondent writes that between
Chateau de Casteau and Lobbcs, a par
ticularly desolated neighborhood, from
whence the Inhabitants had fled, tho
Germans found a hungry canary In an
abandoned farmhouso. Without having
experienced the genuine, almost womanly,
tenderness of tho German soldiers, one
would have called their feeding of tho
canary an affectation, or nt best a pass
ing whim, but It was typical.
A story has reached Paris of the coura
geous action of Mme. Macherez, ot Sols
sons. When the Germnns arrived thero
they demanded to seo the Mnyor, who
wns absent. None of the officials re
sponded to the call, whereupon Mme.
Macherez went to the Germans and said:
"Thero Is no Mayor here, but I answer
for every one nnd everything ns you will
nave to ao tt aopreanttons are com
mitted." After disputing the requisitions and tho
conditions of the Germans, the coura

Alan Bott, writing to the London
Chronicle from Bordeaux, says: "French

Andre had been promoted to sergeant
before members of his regiment and rec

paper suggested that this might refer
to Georges Andrea, to whom the French
Premier recently alluded as nn nll-nround

and who wns second In tho London Olym

that this Is Indeed the case, nnd follow

Immediately set upon tho small detach

German nearest him and killed two men
with It. By this time ho saw that his
companions wee dead or captured. He
grabbed tho flag from n German, and
putting It under his arm ho raced through
tho village street ns though attempting
a try In Rugby footbnll, a number of
Germans following nt his heels. After
sprinting a quarter of a mile he left his
pursuers bohlnd, and later he rejoined
his regiment with the flag. Some days
previously he wroto to a sportsman
friend: 'This Is hell. We are lying In
trenches under tho German artillery flro,
but are not allowed to reply. This Is

Tho following from a brigadier of dra
goons Is a specimen of a certain class
of letters that have begun to arrive ln
"My Dear Parents If you receive this
letter It will be because I have been
killed, but don't weep for me, since my
fate will have been the noblest a French
man can dream of to die for his country
on tho eve of victory. Wo shall be tho
victors because we have right and confi
dence on our side. I shall have done my
duty to the end, and I hope my death
will have been useful to my country. My
last thoughts will be for you."

During an animated discussion among
several Englishmen In London as to the
possibilities of whipping Germnny, one
man sat quietly for some time. He finally
said: "I suppose, we'll give them Home
Ilule, tho same as we did the BocrB."
There are now five beds for wounded
soldiers In the room of the Belgian Royal
Palace usually occupied by the Kaiser
on his visits to King Albert.
A story Is told In Brussels of a bit of
"Yankee" genius. When the Germans
reached thero they entered tho cattla
market to buy up everything In sight
nnd found the entire mnrkct had been
bought up, not by the energetic burgo
master, but (so the story goes) by tho

nounced that he proposed to raise a
temple In Paris In honor of Joan of Are.
He said that to her wns due, for the

Graft, and not the bravery of tho Ger

was responsible for the quick fall of tho
forts at Namur, And this also, It Is
stated, was responslbls for the collapse
of the defense at Liege, notwithstand
ing tho fact that the Llega works held
outout longer than those at Namur.
It was learned today that the Govern
ment has been conducting nn Investiga
tion ever since the Mona forts fell. It la
found that while the defensive works
were being built millions of dollars were
deflected from their proper channels Into
the pockets of contractors and dishonest
The plans for the forts were drawn by
General Brlalmont, ot the Belgian army,
one of tho foremost military engineers In
Europe, but the materials which went
Into the battlements were far below the
specifications in many Instances. No fault
was found with the plans.
It Is agreed that the fortresses were
built upon the strongest positions that
they could find. The Belgian ordnance
also U beyond criticism, but steel and
concrete and stone work were of poor
quality. At Namur It was found that
the concrete supporting one steel turret
was so poor In quality that a single Ger
man shell demolished It.
It Is futtlier alleged that the builders
had not constructed all of the work
which General Brlnlmont's plans specified.
