nfJQN, Sept, a (ijisnaicn 10 mc J.onuon
. Dally Chronicle).
, Although Brent Interest Is concentrated
upon the northwest s.ldo of the lino of
tattle In France, It must not bo fornotten
that the cast sldo Is also of high Importance.
Now for the first tlmo since the begin
ning of the war there will bo a little res
pite on the Lorraine frontier, and in tho
wooded country of tho two lost provinces
thcie will ho time to bury the dead which
incumber Its fields. Words nro utterly
Inadequate to descrlbo tho horrors of the
region to the cast of the Mcurthe, in and
i I around tho little towns or IJlamont, Un
jldonvlller, Clrey-lcs-Forecs, Arracourt,
Chateau-Sallns, Morhnugo and Haudrc
court, wheio for six weeks thero has been
Incessant lighting. After the henvy bat
tle of September 4, when tho Germans
were repulsed with severe losses after an
tttack In force, both sides retired for
about 12 mites and dug themselves Into
lines of trenches which they still hold;
tut ovcry day since tliut date there has
been a kind of gucttilla warfare, with
jmall bodies of men lighting from village
to Milage and from wood to wood, tho
forces on each sldo being scattered over
i wide aica in advance of their main
lines. This method of warfare is even
jnoie tcrrlblo tnan a pitched battle.
"It la absurd to talk of Red Crosi
work," said one of tho French soldiers
ulio had just como out of the trenches
it I.unevlUe. "It has not existed as far
as many of these fights are concerned.
How could it? A few litter carriers
came with us on somo of our expedi
tions, hut they were soon shot down, and
after that tho wounded just lay whcio
they fell, or crawled away into tho shel
ter of the woods. Those of us who were
unhurt woio not nllnwcd to attend to
our wounded comiadcs; It is against
orders. Wo have to go on regardless of
losses. Sly ow n best comrade was struck
down by my side. I heard his cry and
taw him lying there with blood oozing
through his coat. My heart wept to
leave him. Ho wanted mo to take hW
monoj, but I just kissed his hand and
Trent on. I suppose he died, for I could
not And him when wo retreated."
IjAY THREE DAYS UNTENDED.
Another French soldier lay wounded at
the edge of a wood 10 mlle3 from Lune
vlllc. When ho recovered consciousness
he saw thero were only dead and dying
men around him. He remained for two
days, unable to move his shattered limbs
end cried out for death to relieve him
of his agony. At night ho was numbed
by cold; in tho day thirst tortured him
to the point of madness. Faint cries
and groans camo to his ears across tho
field. It was on tho morning of tho third
day that French peasants came to res
cue those who still remained alive.
Thcie havo been several ndvances made
by tho French into Lorraine, and sev
eral letlrcmcnts. On ench occasion men
have seen new horrors which have turned
their stomach!. There are woods not far
from Xancy from which there comes a
pestilential stench which steals down tho
ulml in gusts of obsceno odor. For threo
neekit and more dead bodies of Germans
and Frenchmen havo lain rotting thero.
Thcio nro few grnvo diggers. The peas
ants have lied from their villages, and
the soldiers havo other work to do; so
that the frontier fields on each sldo aro
littered with corruption, where plague
and ftver find holding ground.
DYING ENEMIES RECONCILED.
I have said that this warfare on the
frontier Is pitiless. This Is a gencrnl
itatuncnt of n truth to which there are
exceptions. Ono of these was a recon
ciliation on tho battlefield between Fiench
and German soldiers who lay wounded
and abandoned near the little town of
Btamunt. When dawn came they con
versed with each other while waiting
for d-ath. A French soldier gave his
natei hotilo to a German officer who
was crying out with thlist. The German
tipped ,i littlo and then kissed the hand
of the man who had been his enemy.
"There will be no war on the other side,"
An. ther Frenchman, who came from
Moutmartre, found a Luxomburger ly

hU old acquaintance. "It is stupid?' he
mid, "this war. You mid I were happy
when wu weie irood friends In P.irln.

with each other?" He died with his
arms around the neck of the soldier who
told me tho story, unashamed of his own

Colonel Falls Early? Shout

and Eleven Officers Are
Lost in Covering Allies'
LONDON, Sept. 28.
The first connected narratle of the se
vere lighting In which the King's Own
Royal Lancashire Regiment was engaged
when In killed and wounded tho regiment
had eleven ofllcers put out of action. Is
given by a sergeant of the regiment who
has Just arrived home wounded.
The King's Own, with the Lancashire
Fusiliers and tho Middlesex Regiment,
were ordered to cover the -retreat of pint
of tho allied forces from Mom... On
August 25 they left the position In which
they had been euticnelied to tnko new
ground, and were marching through the
nluht. finding themselves at daybreak
bitween Cambral and Lo Chateau. Sev
eral thousand Frenchmen nnda Highland
regiment had passed down their lines.
While tho King's Own were taking break
fast the Herman artillery boomed foi th.
Seveial shells fell In the vicinity of tho
trenches without doing harm, hut the
enemy's aitlllery was much superior In
numbers to thnt of the Allies, nnd they
pouictl In a raking Mirapnel fire before
tho Kugllsh guns began to speak. Theie
was no doubt either about tho enemy's
range finding, and under cover of tho
guns the enemy came on In tho propor
tion of six to one.
Men were mowed down llko ninepins
by the bursting shrapnel, and It seemed
as If tho King's Own had been singled
out for tho Miucl.il fury of tho onslaught.
Colonel Dykes fell nt an early stage of
the engagement, whllo shouting encour
agement to his men. Fighting continued
furiously until about 9:30. Then thero
was a lull, and the enemy, seemingly
reinforced, mado good thel advance,
and nnother five- hours' desperate con
flict ensued. 1
The Allies fought tho advanco Inch hy

tle as He Describes Mons
LONDON, Sept. 2S.
One of the youngest heroes to leach
London among thu wounded Hritish
troops is a 17-ycar-old drummer boy, at
tached to a Cheshire regiment.
"I went out nt the beginning of tho
war," said the boy, "and was in tho
trenches at Mons."
"You ought to have been with tho
transport," Interrupted the artilleryman
with a sovero look.
"Ves," laughed the lad, "but who was
going to stop with the transport? I
wanted to got to the firing lino nnd seo
some nctinn. I was out for adventure.
"No transport for mo. I was sent for
a box of ammunition iind was curving
It on my shoulder when a shrapnel
splinter struck the box and knocked me
down. All our fellows thought I was
dead and camo running up to me. I got
up all right and went hack to the
tienches. 1 got a rifle and started to
pop away at them."
The boy turned to the artilleryman and
his face lighted up with Interest ns he
"ICver seo a shrapnel drop?"
"Hoy, I'vo seen far too many of them
drop," answered tho artilleryman.
"Ono dropped by me." wonton tho
wounded youngster. "It stood on end for
a second or two and I didn't seem to
realize It was a shell. Then It burst. I
thought It would kill every one around,
but It didn't half kill some of tho men."
The big artilleryman was lost Inab
stractlon. "Yes, my lad," said he. "the ncinpinnes
kept giving tho rnngo of tho German ar
tillerymen. They are good shots and
they have got pood guns."
Tho boy went on:
"Tho neioplanes dropped firoworkti on
us. They kopt on flying back nnd loitli
above us all the time. It was the most
wonderful sight I could imagine.
Tho nrtlller limit said ho had been Miot
through the arm.
"I kept on the firing line, after bind
ing up my wound with a Imndkerchlif."
said he. "I got so sick and weak I had
to go to tho hospital. We wero trjlng to
prevent the Germans from taking somo
of our guns. They wero about a half

hot reception with their nrtlllerj. Those
Dutch artillerymen must have been work

severity of the cannonade. Wounded

"Did you see them blow that big tree

"Yes." replied the artilleryman, 'and I
saw all those cows run out of the
This recollection seemed to tickle th"
boy. Ho laughed heartily.
"When I got back to my trench with
my box of ammunition I covered It with
branches nnd broken rifles. I had to
cross a space thnt was being raked with
.shrapnel and Maxim guns. I stopped,
hut the bullets were humming so briskly
that I turned hack. Then I waited until
s-omo soldiers came up.
"One of the men said: 'Whero's the bal
ance of your command, kid'." I told him
that they were nearly nil wiped out. I
added that I would accompany them
across the giound under fire.
"The same soldier answered: 'You will
be committing suicide If you do.'
"More nnd more shells continued to
drop around me. Ono bullet scoiehed my
cheek. I saw one mtin next to me struck

up his hands and dropped on his face.
"They put me with somo commandeered
horses and thev stampeded. I got my

CONSUL GETS SUSPICIOUS.
Consul Moe's suspicion was first aroused
by Captain A:kelscn and Captain Grlnhclm.
They told him they were to sail under
sealed orders and "things didn't look Just
right." They said that they were In duty
bound to the steamship owners to carry
the cargoes to their destinations, but they
did not believe the owners know anything
about the shipment of supplies to Ger
A few days later tho captains told Mr.
Moe that agents of the Hamburg-American

bonuses for Immediate sailings. This was
during the time tho masters of the steam
ships weio awaiting advice from homo.
Tho advice camo and told them to con

with the dictograph as a witness was ur
ranged. Nothing could be learned of the trans
action at the office of William J. Grand
