Both llrlllsh nnd French troops cut
the railroad south of Seros. The French
statement ssys "a French squadron" nc
complldiod this, whllo the llrltlKh Mate
ment from London says "on the railway
aoulh of Seres our patrol came In con
tact with hostile forces."
By cutting the railroad first north,
then south of .Seres, the Allies have
completely Isolated the town from rail
communication with Dcmlr-Jllssar and
Drama, the other towns held by the In
vaders. Apparently the road that runs
parallel In the railroad, but hcyond It,
tia not been cut. Once It I' cut the
Seres Harrison's only line of retreat will,
be up the vulleyH of two small rlvons that i
run down from the Bulgarian border to
Lake Tahlnos, passing through Here.
To-day'a British statement announces
that British guns have shelled the Bcres
V railroad station, a short distance from
the town Hsctf, and the villages of
Hlrlatos and Barakll-Juma, near Seres.
This Is evidently In preparation for the
main attack on Seres.
A flermnn statement received here and
alio a late Bulgarian statement say all I
efforts of the Herbs, French and Russians
to penetrate the strongly fortified Bui-gar-German
trenches protesting Monastlr
have been vain.

TELLS HOW GERMANS

Boston Man Says 80,000 Brit
ish Soldiers Were Horribly
Mistreated Until Recently.
Sptcial Cabli Dtipatch lo Tns Sex.
London, Oct. 15. One day the world
will be flooded with dramatic, horrible
nnd romantic narratives of the III treat
ment of British prisoners In Germany In
the enrly days of tho war, says D.
Thomas Curtln of Boston to-day, con
tinuing his articles on wartime Germany
In the Times.
Mr. Curtln, who claims to be the only
unofficial neutral who has any largo
amount of direct knowledge uf Ger
many's treatment of these prisoners,
says his Investigations were facilitated
by the German policy of showing their
hatred of their Knglleh captives
"Possibly 30,000 British prisoners nre
scattered In COO camps," he writes. "In

prisoners are constantly being moved
about and convoyed ostentatiously In
tallroad stallonst where until recently
they were allowed to be spat upon by
the public, and given coffee Into which
the public was allowed to spit. These
nte but a few of the slights heaped
upon them. Much of It Is unprintable."
Mr. Curtln says lie has learned that
since tho fiomme offensive began there
has been a marked Improvement In the
treatment of British prisoners every
where In Germany. This Is because tho
captures of Germans make possible re
prisals on a largo scale. Moreover, he
says, much good work hns been done by
tho staff of Ambassador Gerard, many
of whom work as sedulously In behalf
of the British as If they were Americans.
