Intimate Details of Experiences fo
British Cavalryman, As Told in Let
ter to Friends at Home Series of
Narrow Escapes Fill Days For Many
LONDON, December 1. A noil-com
missioned oflieer in the dragoons has
sent to a relative a fnre description
of the work b ing done by British cav
'All our men, in fact the whole
British army, are ns fit as a fiddle,
and the lads are as keen ns mustard.
There is no holding them hack. At
Mods wo were under General f'het
wode, and horses and men positively
flew at the Germans, cutting through
much heavier mounts and heavier
men than ours. The yelling and the
dash of th.? lancers and the dragoon
guard was a thing never to he for
gotten. We lost very heavily at Mons,
and. it Is a marvel how some of our
fellows pulled through and positively
frightened the enemy. We did some
terrible execution, and our wrists
were feeling the strain of heavy rid
ing before sunset. With our tunics
unbuttoned, we had the full use of our
right arms lor attack and defense.
'After Mons, I went with a small
party scouting, and we again engaged
about twenty cavalry, cut off from
their main body. We killed nine,
wounded six, and gave chase to the
remaining five, who, in rejoining their
unit, nearly were the means of trap
ping us. However, our men dispersed
and hid in a wood until they fell in
with a squadron of the and, so
reached camp in safety. After that
a smart young corporal accompanied
me to reronnoiter, and wo went too
far ahead and were cut off in a part
of the country thick with uhlans. "As
we rode in the direction of two
wounded men were limping along,
both with legs damaged, one from the
Middlesex and the other from the
Lancashire fusileers, and so we took
Cure a Grand Sportsman.
"Corporal Watherston took one be
hind his saddle and I took the other.
The men were hungry, and tattered to
shreds with fighting, but In flue
spirits. We soon came across a small
village, and I found the cure a giauci
sportsman and full of pluck and hos
pitality. He seemed charmed to find
a friend who was English, and told
me that, the Germans were dressed
in the uniforms of British soldier:'.
which they look fror. the dead and
from trisoners in order to deceive
French villagers, who in many places
in that district had welcomed these
wolves in sheep's clothing. We were
warned that the enemy would bo sure
to track us to the village. The cure
said he would hide the to vjundtd
men in the crypt of his church and
put up beds for them. It has a seciet
trap door, and was a ancient treas
ure house of a feudal lord, whose
castle wo saw in ruins at the top of
the hill close by.
"Then he hid away our saddlery
and uniforms in the roof of the barn
and insisted upon our making a rest
chamber of the tower of the church,
which was approached by a ladder,
which we were to pull up to the belfry
as soon as we got these. He smug
gled in wine and meat and bread and
cakes, fruit and cigarettes, with
plenty of bedding pulled up by a rope
We slept soundly and the owls seem
ed the only other tenants, who re
sented our intrusion. No troops pass
ed through the village that night. In
the morning the cure came around at
six o'clock, and we heard him say
mass.- After that we let down the
ladder, and he came up with delicious
hot chocolate and a basket of rolls
"Saviors of France."
"Our horses he had placed in dif
ferent stables a mile apart, and put
French 'fittings' on them, so as to de
ceive the enemy. He thinks we are
well away from the main body of the
German army moving in the direction
of Taris, but will not hear of our
leaving here for at least three days
But I cried, 'Cure, we are desertci.?!
The old man wept and said; 'Desert'
ers; iio.ino .saviors, saviors; you
have rescued France from the tor
ments of slavery.'
"However, we have now secured
complete disguises as French eulti
vateurs baggy corduroy trousers,
blue shirts, boots, stockings, belt, hat
cravat, everything to match and, as
wo have not shaved for two weeks
and are bronzed with the sun, I think
that the corporal and myself can pass
anywhere as French peasants, if only

Stiglish in the village. So we have
xplained to (he cure that we shall
stay here until our comrades are able
to walk, and then the pnrty of four
will push our way ou i orif-vherc on
horseback and gel to the coast. H e
sacristan at once offered to be our
guide, and it is arranged that we take
carrier's wagon which travels in
this district and drive our own horse
in it. and pick up two additional
mounts at a large village on the way
to the coast.
French People Very Kind.
"We must get back as soon ns ever
we can. Nothing could be kinder than
the people here, but this is not what
we came to France for, and hanging
about in a French village is not exact
ly what a soldier calls 'cricket.'
You cannot imagine how complete
the Germans are in the matter of
rapid transport. Large automobiles,
such as the railway companies have
for towns round liairogate and Sear
borough, built like char-a-bancs, carry
the soldiers in hatches of 50, so that
they are as fresh as paint when they
get to the front. But in point of num
bers I think one of our side is a fair
match for four of the enemy. I hope
that the British public are beginning
to understand what this war means.
The German is not a toy terrier, but a
bloodhound absolutely thirsty for
Corporal F. Wiskin, 'of the Ninth
lancers, in a letter to a friend, de
scribes the action in which the cav
alry took part on August 21.
"This last two weeks (he says) we
have had it very hard. For the past
ten days we have had about fourteen
hours' sleep, and, of course, we do not
feel up to much. We had a terrible
day last Monday week, when we
charged the German guns. We were
under heavy shell fire for five hours,
and could not move. The longer we
stayed trying to get cover the more
guns worked round our Hanks. We
weie in a real death trap, and I
thought my last day had come. It was
hell on earth, we had nothing to do
but to run th gauntlet three times.
During those few hours I had four dif
ferent horses, each being shot under
me, but I escaped without a scratch."
THEY SEE THE HANDWRITING ON
That the construction of the "lid"
which is eventually to cover the en
tire country is well under way is
apparent to many hotel men whose
business foresight enables them to
see through the many prohibition
planks now being sawed and squared
for the various political platforms,
and it behooves all those who are
interested in the hotel business in
the states which are still wet to
closely study the means their breth
ren in the gone-dry states employ or
propose to employ to meet the new
condition with least possible injury
to their business interests. Mid-West
