France and Germany. le engages in

he is werecked in the grounds of the
Chateau Lagunay. He is rescued by
the daughter of the Count Lagunay,
Aimee. with whom he falls in love.
The Germans advance: Adams defends

old friend. and later assists in an am
bush of the French. Word reaches him
at camp that Aimee is again in the
hands of Griesman. With Fleisch
inann. a gigantic sergeant of the Em
peror's bodyguard, he impresses an
automobile and goes to her rescue. In
a terrific sword light he kills Griesman
and two others, and proceeds with
Aimee to the home of her cousin at
For two delicious days I remained at
Bethel with Aimee. Then early in the
afternoon Fleischmann brought up the
big car we set out for camp, for ob
vious reasons taking a direct road that
did not pass the Chateau Lagunay.
Reaching the outskirts of the camp we
found a host of war balloons inflated and
ready for ascent. Others were already
soaring above us, and looking far to the
south we saw the French balloons, high in
air, observing the German movements
As we went farther south (for the camp
covered an area some ten miles square)
we found that a large part of the army
had moved. It was evident that events'
were approaching a crisis.
At headquarters I sent in my name to
the Emperor. Fleischman- paing up and

for myself, certain of m. ability to make
satisfactory explanation. I waited calmly.
When I was finally ushered into the au
gust presence I saluted and related my
story. The Emperor waved his hand as
though to dismiss me. But I persisted;,
and when 1 finally drew from my pocket
the documents I had taken from Gries
man's pocket, and told him of G"'voir,
Griesman's supposed interpreter, his ex
pression changed. He ran over the papers
hurriedly; letters from a prominent
French officer; brief notes of the German
scheme of invasion: data concerning the
German forces; and realizing that Gries
man was really in league with the enemy 1
he forgave me, though it 'was with a curt
comment upon my abrupt departure from
the camp, and a caution that I conduct
myself more circumspectly in the future.
I told him that I alone was responsible
for Fleischmann's leave without permis
sion-that I had really abducted the big
sergeant against his will. A little smile
flickered over his face at this. Then he
"You will rejoin Lowenberg," he said in
dismissing me. "There is work for you
on the right wing. We will be in action

Fleischmann cau redeem yourselves at the
front. Until you offend again I forgive 1
W\hen we had patiently endur. Lowen
berg's scolding (he had been very much
afraid for us, learning that orders were
out for my arrest) we discussed the plan
for the advance. I learned that the ene
my was assembled in force between our)
camp and the Marne River. The first
contact had occurred the day before, when<
a German brigade of armored automo
biles undertook to reconnoiter to the
south. The French had sent out a similar
brigade for the same purpose, and they
-met near a small village. The two forces
came together in a mad charge. The steel
conical prows of the great cars rammed'l
at high speed, crashing into and over one
another and finishing in a tangle of<
wreckage from which but one German
machine had emerged in condition to re
turn to camp. An assault with such a 1
force upon cavalry or infantry would be
irresistible; but upon an enemy of its own
kind it meant mutual annihilation. It was
a striking example of the unfitness of
such machines for general warfare.
At dark we were ready for the advance, <
moving under cover of night to avoid the
al1-seeing eyes of the airships.
A brief statement of the military situa-<
tion seems necessary in order that the
reader may understand the nature of our
undertaking. As has been stated, the
French occupied the Marn~e River, from 14
Chalons-sur-MIarne to Bar-le-Due. Be- r
tween these towns the south bank of the 1
MIarne rises sharply from the water to a t

The cenler would then attack, press the
French back upon the river, and before
they could get across strike them on both
lanks. or drive them into the water. To t
Lowenberg fell the special task of moving
further up the Marne to Monte Pelier, the
only other point at which the French
could cross. Here the south ban% fell
away and the north bank rose in three
hills. the center of the trio being really a
small mountain, with a flat top, which
ommanded the bridge below and the
b:ks of the Marne for some distance.
The French fortifications did not extend I
this far. and the main danger owas in -nc
possibility of an opposing force reach:ng
the hill before we could get there.
With a detachment of ten infantry regi
ments and one of cavalry we pushed on
through the night, and before dawn
reached the Sillery -forest, which extended
to the base of the Monte Pelier. Here we
encamped to await the signal to advance
and the arrival of a regiment of artillery.
Early in the afternoon we heard firing

snappy bark of the high-power field guns

mars. The sparks paled and fell, and from a

neans that the French are retreating to u

:aken," said Lowenberg. He gave an f
yrder and the word was passed on. The b
trtillery had not come-it never came. as
i matter of fact. Some one had blun- s

kain and again came that terrible flash. A
l'he crashing report as of thousands of g

As the dawn broke and the sun lit the 5
ky the French continued their destruc- o

he top cf the hill they rolled great balls q

ases. Directly above the point where we 3'

nents of warfare, else I should not have P
:urvived that experience. Of those who I
vere not so protected few escaped. The r1
hole side of the hill, for half a mile, was g
overed with dead and dying. fl
During the night the firing on the east p
ad diminished. but with the dawn it r
pened again, and the heavens were rent h
ith the crash and roar of mighty guns, t:
vhich continued all day without intermis- n
ion. The firing above us ceased, how. n

to fiame. Had we been a foot higher inh

tirly leaped ahead of us. his great sabre
weeping down a row of bayonets as a

a pit dug around the brow of the hill

e thousands of them. Our revolvers were
mptied immediately, and it was then a
rimitive tight-hand to hand, face to face,
loulder to shoulder. I struck out to right

lash of metal. the puffing and grunting

oked at Fleischmann. He stood erect,

I found Lowenberg lying on a heap of
traw, his light flickering, his mind wan

ut to his wife, or sang snatches of Ger
ian ballads. One of his under officers,
,ho was a physician, sat near. He shook
