The aoldlera who had gone over

Americana Were Big Help
Both of the aoldlera give all credit
to the American troop. They Bay
that the American arrived Juat In
time and were good fighters. To a
certain extent, they were like the
Canadians because they fought "In
dliin style" and every man looked
out for himself. In thla respect, the
Kngllsh aoldlera were aomewhai
handicapped for aa the elder Bearlea
expressed It "they were always right
under the command of their officer,
and seemed to have no Initiative."
"The Canadian," he aald, "when In
battle, fought their own peculiar
style ot fighting and the Uermun
feared them more than either the
English or Australians."
Americans In Canadian Army
In their battalion were several
American who joined the Canadian
army just for the love of fighting,
and both ot the Boarle say that the
American cow-punchers from the
west were "some flnhters." It I
stated that almost 25,000 American

had seen which would hear out tho
truth. Germans from the different
parts of Germany were quite dif

Searles. Homo of the "square hencln"

known of many Instances when
stretcher bearers had not been
molnnted when bringing the wound

other Instances, he had seen the
stretcher Hearers shot down when
succoring the wounded, and in other
Instances, he had seen soldiers wear
