Germans Fall Like "Suffo
cated Wasps" Before the
Terrible Onslaught of
Africa's Dark Warriors.
PAniS, Sept 17.
The reckless bravery of the Turcos
the black troops that Franco has called
to tho front from Africa, ls the them
of many n thrilling tale.
An officer of Zouaves, who took part In
the magnificent charge of tho dusky Af
tlcan warriors nt Chnrlcrol and was
badly wounded, thus refers to tho fight
"You could not If you tried exaggerate
the nmazlng bravery our fellows showed
right up to the Jaws ot death. Wo had
been fighting for four dayB around tha
walls of Charlerot, There wero 100,000
of the enemy massed against our posl.
tlonn, pouring shot and shell Into us, My
splendid lads never lllnched, although
they had not a chanco for a meal. Some
times tho advantage was with us, some
times we had to give way. Tho more
our artillery mowed down the more th
enemy ccmcd to spring up. They
swarmed In nil directions, nnd that Is
why their casualties aro much heavier
than ours.
"Suddenly our colonel cried, 'Give the
Tin cos frco ieln.' Tho avalanche be
gan. It wns like hell let loose. They
tore nlong the enemy's bnttcrics for a
full mile. Tho Prussian guard was ex
tended over about a thousand yards As
the charge continued tho boys chnntnl the
'Marseillaise,' but ono comrade could
hat illy hear the other. On they dalied
however, till they wero within perhaps
fifteen vards, when the battel les In the
wood ceased firing, or they would have
mowed down their own guards.
"Then tho bloodiest of all lm met
melees began. While ono man was turns
fixing a huge Prussian and could not for
the moment release his bayonet he w -'fl
out with his pistol and shoot nno ,,
whllo a comrnde by his side would be be
laboring his foo with the butt end of his
rifle. So mnd wn3 tho 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
aro ns little children before these tcrrlHo
Turcos. They fell like suffocated wasps;
blood splnshed everywhere, I think I
shot a hundred with my own revolver.
In the end, ns you know, the renimnt,
utterly bewildered, throw down their
arms and fled for their lives. You can
guess how many escaped."
Another Frenchman, who Is, with eev
eral Englishmen, in tho hospital at
Rouen, tells the following story:
"I was In tho battle In the stieets of
Charlerol. 'This 13 sure death ' said ray
pal. ns tho bullets struck the ground
from every side. Wo came to a farm
where wo heard cows mooing from hun
ger. Wo wero saved by Sengaloso sharp
shooters, who kept a wholo regiment of
Grmans nt bay. They are black as (lev
lis, and when the Germans see them with
their fiery eyes blazing from their inky
faces they take to their heels like rabbits."
