CHARGE OF TURCOS
AT CHARLEROI LIKE
"HELL LET LOOSE"
Germans Fall Like "Suffo
cated Wasps" Before the
Terrible Onslaught 0f
Africa's Dark Warriors.
PARIS, Sept n
The teckless bravery of tho Turcos,
the black troops that France has callti
to the front from Africa, Is tho them
of many n thrilling tale.
An officer of Zouaves, who took part In
the magnificent chnrgo of the dusky Af.
rlcnn warriors at Charlerol nnd wai
badly wounded, thus tefers to the fight
"You could tint If you tried exaggerate
the amazing bravery our fellows showed
right tip to tho Jaws of death. We htl
been fighting for four days around th,
walls of Charlerol. There were ICO.tw
of the enemy massed against our po.
liens pouring shot and shc.ll Into us My
splendid lads never flinched, although
thc.v had not a chance for a meal. Some
times tho advantage, was with lis, some
times wo had to givo way. Tho mors
our attlllcry mowed down tho mora the
enemy seemed to spring up, They
swat-med In nil directions, nnd that I
why their casualties are much heavier
"Suddenly our colonel cried, 'dive th
Tut cos free rein. The avalanche be
pan. It was like hell let loose. They
tore along tho enemy's batteries for
full mile. The Prussian guard w.i? ex
tended over about a thousand yards. Ai
the charge continued the boys chantod the
'Mniselllalse,' but one comrade could
hardly hear the other. On they dashed
however, till they were within perhapi
fifteen Yards, when the batteries In the
wood ceased firing, or they would have
mowed down their own guards.
"Then the bloodiest of all bayonet
melees began. While one man was trans.
Ilxlnij a huge Prussian and could not for
the moment release his bayonet ho would
out with his pistol and shoot another,
while u comrade by his side would be be
laboring his foe with the butt end of his
rifle. So mad was the combat that mnay
of our men got hold of tho noses of the
Germans with their teeth. Giants though
these picked guards of William are, they
are as little children before these terrific
Turcos, They fell like suffocated vvnsps;
blood splashed everywhere. I think I
shot a hundred with my own revolver.
In the end. as you know, the remnant,
utterly bewildered, thtew down their
anus and fled for their lives. Tou can
guess how many escaped."
Another Frenchman, who Is, with eev.
eial Englishmen. In tho hospital tt
Rouen, tells the following etory:
"I was In tho battle In tho streets ot
Chatlerol 'This Is sure death said my
pal, as tins bullets struck tho ground
