i- mmuim woundm HELPLESS FOR DAYS ONFIELMFMTTLE No Red Cross Service, and Unburied Bodies Strew .Border Dying Foes r Reconciled. K . . ". .. . . nfJQN, Sept, a (ijisnaicn 10 mc J.onuon . Dally Chronicle). , Although Brent Interest Is concentrated upon the northwest s.ldo of the lino of tattle In France, It must not bo fornotten that the cast sldo Is also of high Importance. Now for the first tlmo since the begin ning of the war there will bo a little res pite on the Lorraine frontier, and in tho wooded country of tho two lost provinces thcie will ho time to bury the dead which incumber Its fields. Words nro utterly Inadequate to descrlbo tho horrors of the region to the cast of the Mcurthe, in and i I around tho little towns or IJlamont, Un jldonvlller, Clrey-lcs-Forecs, Arracourt, Chateau-Sallns, Morhnugo and Haudrc court, wheio for six weeks thero has been Incessant lighting. After the henvy bat tle of September 4, when tho Germans were repulsed with severe losses after an tttack In force, both sides retired for about 12 mites and dug themselves Into lines of trenches which they still hold; tut ovcry day since tliut date there has been a kind of gucttilla warfare, with jmall bodies of men lighting from village to Milage and from wood to wood, tho forces on each sldo being scattered over i wide aica in advance of their main lines. This method of warfare is even jnoie tcrrlblo tnan a pitched battle. "It la absurd to talk of Red Crosi work," said one of tho French soldiers ulio had just como out of the trenches it I.unevlUe. "It has not existed as far as many of these fights are concerned. How could it? A few litter carriers came with us on somo of our expedi tions, hut they were soon shot down, and after that tho wounded just lay whcio they fell, or crawled away into tho shel ter of the woods. Those of us who were unhurt woio not nllnwcd to attend to our wounded comiadcs; It is against orders. Wo have to go on regardless of losses. Sly ow n best comrade was struck down by my side. I heard his cry and taw him lying there with blood oozing through his coat. My heart wept to leave him. Ho wanted mo to take hW monoj, but I just kissed his hand and Trent on. I suppose he died, for I could not And him when wo retreated." IjAY THREE DAYS UNTENDED. Another French soldier lay wounded at the edge of a wood 10 mlle3 from Lune vlllc. When ho recovered consciousness he saw thero were only dead and dying men around him. He remained for two days, unable to move his shattered limbs end cried out for death to relieve him of his agony. At night ho was numbed by cold; in tho day thirst tortured him to the point of madness. Faint cries and groans camo to his ears across tho field. It was on tho morning of tho third day that French peasants came to res cue those who still remained alive. Thcie havo been several ndvances made by tho French into Lorraine, and sev eral letlrcmcnts. On ench occasion men have seen new horrors which have turned their stomach!. There are woods not far from Xancy from which there comes a pestilential stench which steals down tho ulml in gusts of obsceno odor. For threo neekit and more dead bodies of Germans and Frenchmen havo lain rotting thero. Thcio nro few grnvo diggers. The peas ants have lied from their villages, and the soldiers havo other work to do; so that the frontier fields on each sldo aro littered with corruption, where plague and ftver find holding ground. DYING ENEMIES RECONCILED. I have said that this warfare on the frontier Is pitiless. This Is a gencrnl itatuncnt of n truth to which there are exceptions. Ono of these was a recon ciliation on tho battlefield between Fiench and German soldiers who lay wounded and abandoned near the little town of Btamunt. When dawn came they con versed with each other while waiting for d-ath. A French soldier gave his natei hotilo to a German officer who was crying out with thlist. The German tipped ,i littlo and then kissed the hand of the man who had been his enemy. "There will be no war on the other side," he said. An. ther Frenchman, who came from Moutmartre, found a Luxomburger ly ing within a yard of hirn whom ho had known .is a messenger In a big hotel In INirN Tho young German wept to see hU old acquaintance. "It is stupid?' he mid, "this war. You mid I were happy when wu weie irood friends In P.irln. I V hy should wo have been mado to light with each other?" He died with his arms around the neck of the soldier who told me tho story, unashamed of his own tears. BENJAMIN J.

It Is expected that tho retiring Germnns will bo drawn back to strengthen tho Kallsz-Cracow lino with tho purpose of withstanding tho Russian inarch on Sllcsln. Tho retreating Hermann nro be ing pursued by General Reunenknmpt'B forces, strengthened by the garrisons from Kovno and Vlltin. They engnged the re treating Germans at Sopocklnle and Drus skcnlkl, In the Suwalkl dlitrlct, and In flicted heavy losses.

He cauoo of the strict censoishlp at Herlln It Is Impossible to lenrn of his exact whurenbouts, though the olllclnl reports there 4mvc Intimated he was In tho west ern war theatre.) General Rennenknmpf adds In his IP port that the Gennnns have attempted !o enpturo Ossowlec (southeast of Lyck), hut Mint they were unable to bring up theli' big guns. "The German forces ciossed the border at four points," he cays. "Th-y showed their chief strength nt Knllsz, where they occupied the Warta district, but this sec tion ot their army suffered heavily at Sleradr (southeast of Kallsz). "Two other forces advanced to Mlawa and I.omzn, but the latter suffered a severe check. "The fourth advanced by way of Su walkl toward tho Nlemcn. There they suffered heavily from our nrtlllery fire, which shattered their attempt to ad vance. The general retreat of theso forces, which far outnumbered ours, In dicates that they aro being withdrawn to another spot where they nro urgently needed." Whllo necessarily all plans are closely guarded, tho declaration Is freely made hero thnt tho Russians will havo entered Berlin by tho first of January next. Tho entire Russian nctivo army Is being moved. That part not required for tho present operations is being placed in strategic locations where It can bo used to fill the gaps In tho nctivo ranks n3 needed.

(OUT o DWMD SPOT H S; ' LADY MACBETH KING'S OWN MOWED LIKE STRICKEN GRAIN BY SCYTHES OF WAR Colonel Falls Early? Shout ing Encouragement to Men. and Eleven Officers Are Lost in Covering Allies' Retreat. LONDON, Sept. 28. The first connected narratle of the se vere lighting In which the King's Own Royal Lancashire Regiment was engaged when In killed and wounded tho regiment had eleven ofllcers put out of action. Is given by a sergeant of the regiment who has Just arrived home wounded. The King's Own, with the Lancashire Fusiliers and tho Middlesex Regiment, were ordered to cover the -retreat of pint of tho allied forces from Mom... On August 25 they left the position In which they had been euticnelied to tnko new ground, and were marching through the nluht. finding themselves at daybreak bitween Cambral and Lo Chateau. Sev eral thousand Frenchmen nnda Highland regiment had passed down their lines. While tho King's Own were taking break fast the Herman artillery boomed foi th. Seveial shells fell In the vicinity of tho trenches without doing harm, hut the enemy's aitlllery was much superior In numbers to thnt of the Allies, nnd they pouictl In a raking Mirapnel fire before tho Kugllsh guns began to speak. Theie was no doubt either about tho enemy's range finding, and under cover of tho guns the enemy came on In tho propor tion of six to one. Men were mowed down llko ninepins by the bursting shrapnel, and It seemed as If tho King's Own had been singled out for tho Miucl.il fury of tho onslaught. Colonel Dykes fell nt an early stage of the engagement, whllo shouting encour agement to his men. Fighting continued furiously until about 9:30. Then thero was a lull, and the enemy, seemingly reinforced, mado good thel advance, and nnother five- hours' desperate con flict ensued. 1 The Allies fought tho advanco Inch hy Ini'h, fighting becoming so closo that the Klns'n Own got homo with several dash Ing bayonet charges, ono of the most brilliant of which was led by Captain Clutterbitek formerly of the Yorkshire Light Infantry, who with a handful of men routed four timro tho number of men under his command. He paid thu price of his gallantry with his life, hut the casualties to his mi-n wero singularly light. The sergeant suld, "It was Just like Clutterbuck." "Then," continued the sergeant, "there was Lieutenant Steel-lVrklns, who tiled one of the grandest deaths a llrltish ofllccr could wish, lie was lifted out of tho trenches wounded four times, but, protesting, crawletl hack again till he was mortally woundid." l'roreedlng, the sergeant said: "Tho flrrt man knocked over was one of the most popular of the Rugby footballers in the Dover garrison, lie was shot through tho mouth. Lieu tenant Woudgate distinguished himself in bravery and Major Kirker was coolneb personified. "A German aeroplane which came over our position on the day preceding the battle was ucnmntal for. Assailed b a shower of bullets from more than one regiment, Its reconnoitring career had a sudden stop. The enemy swooped down un iih so quickly at tho tlnUh that wo were unable to remove all our dead nnd wound'-d.

DRUMMER BOY, HIT BY GERMAN SHELL, LONGS TO RETURN Youth in London Hospital Yearns for One More Bat tle as He Describes Mons Experience. LONDON, Sept. 2S. One of the youngest heroes to leach London among thu wounded Hritish troops is a 17-ycar-old drummer boy, at tached to a Cheshire regiment. "I went out nt the beginning of tho war," said the boy, "and was in tho trenches at Mons." "You ought to have been with tho transport," Interrupted the artilleryman with a sovero look. "Ves," laughed the lad, "but who was going to stop with the transport? I wanted to got to the firing lino nnd seo some nctinn. I was out for adventure. "No transport for mo. I was sent for a box of ammunition iind was curving It on my shoulder when a shrapnel splinter struck the box and knocked me down. All our fellows thought I was dead and camo running up to me. I got up all right and went hack to the tienches. 1 got a rifle and started to pop away at them." The boy turned to the artilleryman and his face lighted up with Interest ns he naked: "ICver seo a shrapnel drop?" "Hoy, I'vo seen far too many of them drop," answered tho artilleryman. "Ono dropped by me." wonton tho wounded youngster. "It stood on end for a second or two and I didn't seem to realize It was a shell. Then It burst. I thought It would kill every one around, but It didn't half kill some of tho men." The big artilleryman was lost Inab stractlon. "Yes, my lad," said he. "the ncinpinnes kept giving tho rnngo of tho German ar tillerymen. They are good shots and they have got pood guns." Tho boy went on: "Tho neioplanes dropped firoworkti on us. They kopt on flying back nnd loitli above us all the time. It was the most wonderful sight I could imagine. Tho nrtlller limit said ho had been Miot through the arm. "I kept on the firing line, after bind ing up my wound with a Imndkerchlif." said he. "I got so sick and weak I had to go to tho hospital. We wero trjlng to prevent the Germans from taking somo of our guns. They wero about a half milo away and they were giving us n hot reception with their nrtlllerj. Those Dutch artillerymen must have been work ing like demons, Judging from tho severity of the cannonade. Wounded soldiers ciept Into the hedge on both sides of the road. "The doctors tell me that I will b? able to go out again In about a week. Thero won't be any more Mons It Is time for the Uermanu to tako theli gruel now " "Did you see them blow that big tree up'" asked the drummer boy "Yes." replied the artilleryman, 'and I saw all those cows run out of the woods." This recollection seemed to tickle th" boy. Ho laughed heartily. "When I got back to my trench with my box of ammunition I covered It with branches nnd broken rifles. I had to cross a space thnt was being raked with .shrapnel and Maxim guns. I stopped, hut the bullets were humming so briskly that I turned hack. Then I waited until s-omo soldiers came up. "One of the men said: 'Whero's the bal ance of your command, kid'." I told him that they were nearly nil wiped out. I added that I would accompany them across the giound under fire. "The same soldier answered: 'You will be committing suicide If you do.' "More nnd more shells continued to drop around me. Ono bullet scoiehed my cheek. I saw one mtin next to me struck between the eyes. lie gave a yell, threw up his hands and dropped on his face. "They put me with somo commandeered horses and thev stampeded. I got my knee slushed and one of the horses step lied on me. Thnt Is why I am here-. " 'I'm going back, lust as soon ns I get out of here.

GERMAN WARSHIPS TO LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR THEIR SUPPLIES Exposure of Distinatlon of Steamships Fram and Sommerstand Cancels Sail ings Captains Tell Their Suspicions. German wnrshlps In .South American and West Indian waters which have been coaled and provisioned by esscls out of this port will have to seek other sourccB for supplies. The dictograph exposure of the destinations of tho Nor wegian steamships Fram nnd Sommer slad, now at anchor In the Delaware River, has disclosed tho system which mado the vlolutlon of neutrality possi ble. Owners, agents nnd others arc now rushing to cover. Tho expose wrns due to the efforts of Christian Moe, Norwegian Consul nt this port, and Itnlph M. Bullowa, a Nrw York attorney. It was In Mr. Hullown's ofllce the dic tograph was Installed, prior to n con ference between the innstors of the ves sels, representatives of tho Huinhurg Amerlcan Mne and olllclali of the Inter Amcrlcan Company. Mr. Hullowa de clare that tho Inter-Amerlcnn Com pany had chartered tho vessels and then rechartetcd them to the Hamhurg Amerlcan Company. This Is denied by Julius I'. Meyer, director of the latter company, who asserts that his company has chartered vessels at various times to supply ships of tho line, but never German cruisers. Upon the advice of Mr. Moe, Captain Axelson, of the h'ommerstad, and Cap tain Grlnhclm, of the Kram, consulted Mr. Bullowa, after notifying their own ers, the A. V. KlavernosH & Co., of Ilaugcscnd, Norway, nnd H. M. Wrnngell St. Co., of Christlanla, Norway. CONSUL GETS SUSPICIOUS. Consul Moe's suspicion was first aroused by Captain A:kelscn and Captain Grlnhclm. They told him they were to sail under sealed orders and "things didn't look Just right." They said that they were In duty bound to the steamship owners to carry the cargoes to their destinations, but they did not believe the owners know anything about the shipment of supplies to Ger man warships. A few days later tho captains told Mr. Moe that agents of the Hamburg-American Line had sent them offers of big bonuses for Immediate sailings. This was during the time tho masters of the steam ships weio awaiting advice from homo. Tho advice camo and told them to con sult nn attorney. Then tho conference with the dictograph as a witness was ur ranged. Nothing could be learned of the trans action at the office of William J. Grand field and Company, 3&S Walnut stret, to day. They are the local agents for the steamships. They declined to give the name or names ot the persons for whom they were acting and further refuf-cd to nfTirm or deny that they knew tfic car goes were meant for German cruisers.

CAUIUKD COFFEE FOtl nitAZII Like "carrying coals to Newcastle" was the carrying of coffee to Brazil by these steamships. Another suspicious Incident was the large supply of fresh water taken on board. Theso aroused the Nor wegian skippers' fears, They did not care to risk Imprisonment In Kngllsh or French prisons, but both emphatically declared they feared most for tho prop erty of their employers. Difficulty wan experienced In getting crews for these vessels, despite tho fact that hundreds of snllors are out of employment. Arrangements nre now being made for the discharge of the cargoes of the Fram and Sommer.stnd, and In a few day J50.0M worth of coal nnd ship supplies which were scheduled for German war ships will be dumped back on one ot th pleis and later delivered to the consignors.
