"The idea was to put us on i

first," he said, "but the; sector dit
not remain quiet long with the Am

the first minute they could am

"the last German prisoners I sawii
France were men who were cap
tured from an airplane."
"The Americans had always sai<
that when they got the: boches, the]
would give them bad treatment," h<
added, "but, as a mater of fact
whenever we captured Germans, w<
treated them with the jjreatest kind
ness. We even stole "chow" to feet
them, and gave them tobacco am
the best of everything we had.
"The officers we captured wer<
always bull-headed and would no
give information, the German pri
vates were sick of war and told ui
that they wished they weren't in it
They look for it to end in revolu
tion in fiermanv. after America ceb
into the war, but they don't believe
we are in it yet."
NO FIREMAN'S CONVENTION.
Chief C. B. Beaudrot has received
notice from President Louis Behrens
that the annual Fireman's Convention
will not be held in Bishopville
this year. It has been postponed
for patriotic reasons. It is felt that
the firemen can serve best by remaining
on guard just at this time
in their respective towns and second
the railroads are so heavily taxed
with traffic that all possible relief
should be given them.
Fresiaent cenrens aavises uniei
Beaudrot that the vonvention will be
held in Bishopville in 1919 and
wants it to be the biggest arid best
ever held.?Greenwood Index.
