of the 110 th Infantry, was one of
the men who took part in the offen

says: "I suppose you will- read in
the papers about the regirrtent that
was trapped tn the Argonne Woods.
Well, we were ordered in to relieve
them, and we sure did make Fritz
sweat. It is great to rustle those
machine gun nests, especially when
we get them from the flank before
they have a chance to turn. Wo
gained all points, and are now nt
rest camp with part of the rescued
batallion. We were just in time,
as they were about 'all in.' "
Safe From Fritz
In another letter, dated Septem
ber 10, Private Herman says' "Just
a few lines to let you know Fritz
has not got me yet, although it is
not his fault for he tries pretty hard.
I see by the Telegraph, which I re
ceive pretty frequently under the
conditions, that you know more
about the war than we do. I also
see what glory the 110 th is getting

by Four Explosions at
duPont Cap Works
Pompton Lakes, N. J., Dec. 6.
Eleven men were killed and twenty
three injured here late yesterday by
four explosions which destroyed the
detonator assembling building of the
duPont cap works and shook the
countryside for miles around. Fire,
which* followed- the explosions, was
confined to the one unit, and the
property loss was said to be slight.
With the first blast, hundreds of
men, women and children who had
relatives working at the plant,
hastened to the scene, but becaijße of
possible danger to them guards
barred them at the gates. As soon
as It was possible the injured were
rushed to the company's hospital at
Haskell. It is feared that four or
five of the injured may die.
Officials of the company said last
night they believed an employe at
work assembling French fuse detona
tors, which are filled with fulminate
or mercury, had dropped one. of
them. Exploding, this had set off
the stock in the building, which, of
ficials claimed, contained only twen
ty-five or thirty pounds of fulmi
The assembling building, located
on a slight hill, was widely sepa

two or three miles up a narrow val

all at work in this structure, but
officials said a few others also em
