Most of the regiments will be able to
embroider Into tholr colors the names of
many historic fighK but hardly any will
be able to hand down such stories as the
Second Dragoon Ouaids and tho Queen's
J3ajs will transmit to tholr future re
cruits. irre Is the story that was told to me
by Private Brynnt as ho lay wounded In
the hospital ship:
I don't Just remember the date. Wo
)uc not had tlmo to think of dates lately.
But It was Just ovor a week ago. Wo
were somewhere In the neighborhood ot
St. Quetitln. Wo had been flshtlnff all
da' We had picketed and wntered our
horses and late that night thoueht wo
had seen tho last of the Germans for a
"In tlio morning, however, tho Colonel
pio orders to saddle. Wo Jumped on
our horses, and at tho samo moment
ehclls began to burst overhead. Our
hoises stampeded. The enemy's shnrp
shooters were already In position, and
while we wero recapturing our horses
shrapnel, canister shots and bullets were
making tho nlr sins around us.
FIKLD AHTILLEUY 18 DELAYED.
"The German artillery lire Increased In
Intensity. Wo began to wait anxiously
for our own ltoyal Field Artillery to get
Into position. Jt was delayed by the fact
that tho battery horses were being wa
tered. "Something had to 'bo done, so wo got
the Maxims up, desplto tho withering
(Ire. Our boys soon got busy. It would
have done you good to see how calmly
and quietly they wont about their work
"Our men realized tho moaning of their
Job. It was to hold on until the artillery
came up. In other words. It was to Bave
the regiment from annihilation. Within
a few minutes they wero sending somo
(000 shots In so many seconds among the
"Then the artillery arrived. Wo had
four guns against 11 for the Germans,
but some of thosa 11 were silenced.
"It was not long before the Bays were
Itching to charge. Almost before they
expected It tho buglo sounded and they
irere ofT, 'hell for leather,' at the enemy's
"The net result of that llttlo scrap was
the capture of 11 Krupp guns and many
Unfortunately, Bryant was left wounded
on the field and was made a prisoner
by the Germans. Ho lived for five das
on bread and water, all that the Germans
would supply hltn. On the fifth day a
detachment of French cavalry arrived,
rescued tho prisoners and captured tho
German troopers who wero guarding

ivhere they were enred for by tho
BRITISH BATTKHY WIPBO OUT
Bryant told me that In the action of
St. Quentln of an entire British battery
tngaRed but 17 men were left alive.
Gaston Bossier, a private In the Sixth
Cuirassiers, who Is known In civil life
as Darlno, a lyric artist at the Comedle
Franealsc and a favorite of tho Parlsl
ennes, tells tho following1 story, which
seems almost an ecllpso of tho blowing
up of tho Delhi Gates.
i Dossier, lying wounded In Normany,
with gestures, but falls back groan'ns
by shrapnel, tells the story In true Gallic
manner Ho tries to rise and tltustrato
with gestures, but falls back groaning.

engineer suddenly dashed at one of tho
fuses. Hf was imed before half way

upon the body of his comrade. A third,

The French papers are recalling n In
teresting reply which General I'auVmade
ii year ago, when his admirers proposed
to present him a award of honor upon tho
occasion of his giving up command of tho
20th Army Corps.
"' -certainly ehould not accept tho sword
of honor that you and other well-mean-Ins
patriots think of giving me," he said.
Such a recompense must bo reserved
for tho man who shall lead our vlctoil
ous armies beyond Met? and Strossburg,
beyond tho Rhino, into tho very heart of
the German Empire. As for me, modest
worker In times of peace, enemy to pub
licity and popularity, It Is sufficient that'
I hae the conlldenco of those who have
served under my orders, and the suffrages
of good people such as you."
At the village of Lourches, In northern
France, a wounded French sergeant, out
raged hv dermaii brutality, shot a Prus
sian ofllcer. Uefote being shot he was
Riven water by a dauntless lad, IJmlle
Dcsprcs, who thereupon was nlso con
demned to Immediate otccutlon. Just as
tho sohlieis were bandaging tho boy's
eyes preparatory to firing the German
captain, with n cruel smile, cried cynic
ally, "I give you llfo on condition thnt
you act b executioner of this sergeant.
Ho asked for water, you'll give him lead."
After -n moment's hesitation the boy
agreed, to the horror of his comrade?.
Seizing a "rifle, he aimed at the sergeant's
breast. Thpn, suddenly turning, ho blew
a hole through tho sneering Gorman, IIo
was hacked to pieces with bayonets.
La l'ro3zo publishes an Intoivlow with
the private Roldlcr Turcot, who with hln
comrade, Uroussard, captured the first
German ling. Ho Is now In tho hospital
at Murlargls, slightly wounded In tho
back by a spent bullet. Tut cot tells a
very modest story. He says ho lost his
regiment wnnderlng In a wood, when he
saw a wounded German standard bearer
trying to hide his nag. Calling a com
rade, Turcot attacked the German and
seized tho flag. Then came the hardest
part, the wllhdrawnl carrying tho trophy
ninldt a storm of bullets. His knapsack
was pierced ten times and his rifle broken
In his hands.
A correspondent wiltes that between
Chateau do Casteau and Lobbcfl. a par
ticularly desolated neighborhood, from
whence tho Inhabitants had fled tho
Germans found a hungry canary In an
abandoned farmhouse. Without having
experienced tho genuine, almost womanly,
tenderness of tho German soldiers, ono
would have called their feeding of tho
canary an affectation, or nt best a pass
ing whim, but It was tjplcal.
A story has readied Pari! of the coura
geous action of Jlmo. Macherez. of Sols-
sons. When the Germans arrived thero
they demanded to aeo the Mayor, who
was absent. None of the ofllclals re
sponded to tho call, whereupon Mine.
Machcrez went to tho Germans and said:
"Tlicio Is no Mayor here, but I answer
for every ono and everything as you will
have to do if depredations arc com
mitted." After disputing tho requisitions and the
conditions of tho Germans, the coura

Chronicle from Bordeaux, says: "French

before members of his regiment and rec
ommended for a nillltnry medal. The

of letters that have begun to arrive In

from the euro ot a llttlo Belgian vlllago

soveral Englishmen In London as tu the
possibilities of whipping Germany, ono
man sat quietly for some time. Ho finally
said: "I suppose we'll glvo them Home

There aio now five beds for wounded
soldiers In the room of tho Belgian Royal
Palaco usually occupied by the Kaiser
on his visits to King Albert.
A story Is told In Brussels of bit of
"Yankee" genius. When the Germans
reached thoro they entered the cattlo
market to buy up everything In sight
nnd found the entire market had been
bought up, not by tho energetic burgo
master, but (so tho story goc:i) by tho

ANTWERP. Sept. 17.
Graft, and not the bravery of tho Ger
mans nor tho powar of their sleKe buiis,
was responsible for the quick fall of tho
forts at Namur. And this also. It Is
stated, was responsible for the collapse
of tht defense at Liege, notwithstand
ing tho fact that the Liege works held
outout longer than thoso at Namur.
It waB learned today that the Govern
ment has ben conducting an investiga
tion ever since the Mons forts fell. It Is
found that while the defensive works
were being built millions of dollar were
deflected from their proper channels Into
the pockets of contractors and dishonest
The plans for tho forts were drawn by
General Brlalmont, of the flelgiau army,
one of tho foremost military engineers In
Uurope, but the materials which went
Into the battlements were far below the
specification In many Instances. No fault
was found with tho plans.
It Is agreed that the fortresses were I
built upon tho strongest positions that '
they could find. The llclgian ordi'ance
also Is bevoml criticism, but steel and
concrete and stone work wero of poor I
quality. At Namur It was found that I
the concrete supporting ono steel turret ,
was so poor In quality that a. single Ger
man shell demolished It.
It Is further alleged that the builders
had not constructed all of the work
which General Ilrlalmont's plans specified.
