In Antwerp all Belgians between tho ages of IS and SO have been arrested, and oldleni with fixed bayonets placed to guard them. About 100 were taken to tho Merxem station. Firing vras heard at Rosendael. This Is regarded as very strange. DUNKIRK, Nov. .

IIo said the Germans praotlcally evacu ated Brussels cm October 35 and 26, leav ing only a few military posts behind. The German authorities previously had called up the civil guard. Many mem bers of the guard fled rather than answer tho coll.

According to soldiers back In Paris from tho firing line, troops that aro supposed to face each other grimly across a lire-swept space only a few hundred yards wide are not tho bloodthirsty fellows wo all took thorn for. They carry chivalry Into their work and certain conventions, all making ftfr comfort have been tacitly established be tween them. For example, townrd mid day both sides suspend file In order that they may cat luncheon In peace. They would undoubtedly oblige each other when tho evening meal Is due but for tho unhappy fact that the dinner hours of tho contending armies do not tnlly.

'But to prove to you that we Russians are not POLISH FALCONS READY TO FIGHT FOR FATHERLAND Twelve Hundred in This City Drill Twice a Week. Forty Thousand in America Await Call to Battle. Twelve hundred Polish Falcons, resi dents of Philadelphia, are undergoing grueling military drill twice every week and Held maneuvers once, each month, awaiting the moment when the national body may be called to arms to fight for the freedom of Poland. This is not the drilling of an "awkward squad," but the expert drilling of uni formed and armed soldiers, who aro keeping strict military training, hoping that tho freedom of their Fatherland may be accomplished peacefully, but deter mined to tight to the end If It cannot The fact that tho Polish Falcons ex isted in this country has never been a secret, but few have realized the mag nitude of this force there are 40.000 In America and 30,000 of theso are In the United Btates while fewer still have realized that the outbreak of the Euro pean war has placed the military activ ity of this body In an entirely new light, for the present conflict la what the Fal cons have been waltlnc for for years, h conflict In which the Powers now holding portions of their country are fighting against each other and are having their military strength weakened by stagger ing losses. ' The Falcons of this country are divided Into 16 major districts or circuits, which are subdivided into S16 amaller units called "nests." Philadelphia la In Circuit No. 13, which Includes such neighboring cities as Camden, Trenton, Reading, Baltimore and Wilmington. This circuit Is composed of 123 nests. 12 of these being In this city. The officers of Circuit No. 13 are P. Borowlcs, president: O. Kocle, vloo presi dent! X. Wojsowskl, secretary; "W. No wak, treaauror. The nests have their local president, who oversees the military drill of that division; but once every month, without previous notice, the cir cuit president mobilizes the forces of the entire circuit, and extensive field drills are held. WOMEN READY TO FIGHT. TOO. Tho military activity of the Poles Is not confined to the men there ire 4000 Polish women In this country who go through drills no less rigorous. They, too, meet twlee each weok, and are trained in bandaging wounds and the performing of other duties of field nurse, while some of tho bolder ones among them have or ganized uniformed and armed lighting companies which aro rapnble of perform ing actlvo duty at the front. Poland Is at prcsont split Into threo sec tions Gallcia, owned by Austria-Hun-KnryfHussian Poland and Prussian Po lnnd. At the outbreak of tho present hos tilities tho Poles of Gallcia and Prussia were allowed to organize nn Independent body of troops numborlng 20,000 men, who were to protect their territory from Rus sian Invasion, tho Intimation being that If they did so Germany and Austria would recognlzo their national Independence at tho closo of the war. Tho Poles of Russian Toland, on tho other hand, were Informed that If thoy fought for Russia, that nation would rec ognize their national independenco even tually. This has put the Poles In a pro carious position, some of them hclng obliged to support tho one side and soma the other; the result has been the an nouncement on the part of Russia that tho offer for lndependonco Is now void, for. It is said, some of tho Russian Poles have not only refused to tight for Russia, but havo gono to the aid of the Poles of (Prussia and Gallcia. TO PETITION THE POWERS. With this situation in mind, tho Polish Falcons of this country Intend to demand their national Independenco at the first opportunity; they will present a petition signed by 3,000,000 Poles to tho Powers, and If this Is denied they will rush to tho aid ot their Fatherland and attempt to accomplish by force what the rebellions I RESORTS "The Delights of Getting Well" You cms combine thaenjoymentiofi mi rnlficcfit re sort hoUl with ALL Ihs TREATMENTS glrin it Alx.Vlchjy Kirlitud, Nubla, or lUrrogit l A PHILADEIPHA pprpor of 1830, 1813 and 1SS3 failed to realize the recognition by tho world of Poland as an Independent nation. And one thing Is certain that such an attempt will not fall through lack of patriotism. Not only by arms, but by tho collection of funds, aro they preparing for the conflict. Tho Polish Falcons of this country havo In tholr treasury at present J100.000, all of It contributed from their own pockets, and tho majority of them aro men 111 able to afford financial sup- , port. The enthuslalsm of the Falcons Is splendid. P. Wasowlcz, vice president of one of tho Philadelphia neBts, when questioned as to the probable outcome of their plans, replied; "I do not know, but whatever happens every one of us will glvo his life gladly for his country. Wo hate tho slavery that holds our country down, and the time has almoit come when tho Falcon will break from his bonds or die. "Every one of us is ready to return to nght; after that wo stay as long as our country needs us perhaps some stay after that and noma return. Anyway, tho life of every Falcon belongs to tho Father landthat Is all that matters, and If he dies, each ono wants to die fighting for the freedom of the Falcon. "Poland onco hod the whlto eagle for her symbol the eagle which fears noth ing and tights ngalnst the foe until he Is conquered. But when we nrc sub jects and can no longer overcome the oppressor, the symbol Is no longer fitting, and we organlzo the Falcons named after tho bird which longs for freedom and dies In the cage, if she is not liberated, but fights and fights hard before she dies." so black as we are painted, 1 now pagi you for the horse.' "So saying ho handed ruble (6L8 cents) to tho Inspector, who discovered later that tho plec was coined In th4 lith century and Is not current now." Tho Figaro prints a letter to a resident of Tarls from his son, a. French soldiery who Is now a German prisoner. Tho; latter says that the Germans are training . French laptlves at target practice and ' also are drilling them. The Figaro wonders whether the -idea J la to force prisoners to servo In tho i German army as combatants or Is simply a conceit originating In the confidence; of the Germans In victory and tho train Ing of the Kaiser's supposed future soU dlers. A West Indian Negro, according to tho) Barbados Standard, told his overseer what ho thought of British soldiers by vi means of a little story. "Jos' before da war," ho said, "de Kaiser, he semi a bag of rlco to King George, and ho toll him, 'King George, I got as many soldlors aa dero Is rlco In dls bag,' and King George he send do Kaiser a bottlo of nigger peppers and he tell him, 'I only got as many soldiers as thoro Is poppers In this bottle, but Jes' you blto ono and sco how you like him.'
