that tho battery horses woro being wa

Tho French papers are recalling an In
teresting reply which General Pan made
a year ago, xvhen his admirers proposeu
to present him a sword of honor upon the
occasion of his giving up command of the
20th Army Corps.
"I certainly should not accept the sword
of honor that you and other well-meaning
patriots think of giving me," ho said,
'Such a recompense must be reserved
for the man who shall lead our victori
ous armies beyond Metz and Strassburg,
beyond the Rhine, Into the very heart of
tho German Empire As for me, modest
worker In times of peace, enemy to pub
licity and popularity, It Is sufficient that
I have the confidence of those who have
served under my orders, and tho suffrages
of good people such as you."

tho soldiers were bandaging the boy's
eyes preparatory to firing tho German
captain, with a cruel smile, cried cynic
ally, "I give you life on condition that
you act as executioner of this sergeant.
He nsked for wntcr, you'll glvo hltn lead,"
After a moment's hesitation tho boy
ngrecd, to the horror of his comrades.
Seizing ti ride, ho aimed tit the sergeant's
breast. Then, suddenly turning, ho blow

wns hacked to pieces with bayonets.
1a Preszo publishes on Interview with
the prlvato soldier Turcot, who with his
comrade, Broussard, captured the first
German ling. Ho is now In the hospital
at Mortnrgls, slightly wounded In tho
back by a spent bullet. Turcot tells a
very modest story. Ho aaya ho lost his
regiment wandering In a wood, when ha
saw it wounded German standard bearer
trjlng to hide his flag. Calling a com
rade, Turcot attacked tho German and
seized tho Hag. Then came tho hardest
part, tho withdrawal carrying tho trophy
amidst a storm of bullots. His knapsack
was pierced ten times and his rlllo broken

Germans found a hungry canity In an
abandoned farmhouse. Without having
experienced the genuine, almost womanly,
tenderness of tho Gorman soldiers, ono
would have called their feeding of the
canary an affectation, or at best a pass

A story has reached Paris of tho coura
geous action of Mme. JIachcrez, of Sols
sons. When the Germans arrived there
they demanded to seo tho Mayor, who
was absent. None of the officials re
sponded to the call, whereupon Mme.
Jlachcrez went to tho Germans and said:

for every one and everything as you will

conditions of the Germans, the coura

companions wero dead or captured, He
grabbed tho flag from n. German, and
putting It under his arm he raced through
tho vlllago street as though attempting
a try In Rugby football, a number of
Germans following nthls heels. After

Graft, and not the bravery of thu Ger

was responsible for the quick fnll of the
forts nt Namur. And this also. It Is
stated, was responsible for tho collapse
of the defense at Llese, notwithstand
ing tho fact that the Liege works held
outout longer than those at Namur.
It wuh learned today that the Govern
ment has been conducting un Investiga
tion ever since the Mons torts fell. It Is
found that while the defensive works
were being built millions of dollars were
deflected from their proper channels into
the pockets o( contractors and dishonest
The plans for the forts were drawn by
General Rrlalmont, of the Belgian army,
one of tho foremost military engineers In
Europo, but the materials which went
Into the battlements were far below the
specifications in many Instances. No fault
was found with the plans.
H Is agreed that the fortresses were
built upon the strongest positions that
they could find. The Belgian ordnance
also Is beyond criticism, but steel and
concrete and stone work wore of poor
quality. At Namur It was found that
the conciote supporting one steel turret
was so poor In quality that a single Ger
man shell demolished It.
It Is further alleged that the bulldors
had not constructed all of the work
which General Rrialmont'a plans specified.
