T-lACKl-D DOWN TWO SPIES
It Is dlirtcult to get him to talk of hl
experiences, but one of his earliest feuta
was the tracking down and arrest of
two spies, and of this ho gives the fol

"One nftprnoon I saw n crowd of peo

two men who had born arrested bv our

I noticed that the did not wear the

they replied, 'You had better run away

of the law come out of tluit wood and

"They nt once returned to the road
Just nt that moment two Lancers dashed
up In a motor car. The two 'priests' nt

"I told the chief of the police that

to which they declared they belonged, nnd
asked the Superior whether he recognized
them as belonging to his community
The reply was In the negative

"Taken again before tho authprlties,
the false priests at last confessed that
one of them was a German nnd the other
an Austrian On searching them care

This was not Leysln's only capture of
spies Eaily In August a boy scout of
Liege told him that two Germans, posing
as Liege workmen, wero helping to dig a

raised his rifle as a sign of surrender. I
