northwest of 'foul. In a "tin hat" with
a gas mask swung over his ches; at the

first-line trenches. splashing through
the inud and slipping on the Ice lie
dropped down into the dugouts and
visited butteries busy hurling "iron
rations" at the enemy.
In all places tho general asked in
numerable questions especially of the
men with regard to food, how they
were, and how they lilted conditions.
All except one cook agreed that they
wero perfectly satisfied vrjth every
thing. To the cook General Pershing
''v?u are getting enough to cat?"
"So, sir." the cook replied.
What?" raid the general.
^ ou, the cook, and do not get suffi

such a condition before."

That seems like a considerable va

else do you want?"
"Well. I would like to have some

General Perishing then turned to a

Dutch Engineer's Amazing Story
of Starvation and Cruelty

I sat. its I said, for seven long hours
in the stuffy compartment of that
crawling train, which seemed to be
drawn into a siding and stop every
half-mile to allow others to pass. All
of lis wero weary of the journey, and
the sltrht.s which we witnessed at Weso
had to a certain extent unnerved us.
And this seemed to make the journey
all the more wearisome. K??r a time
wo talked together, hut after about
the,, tenth stop by the way, we lapsed
into silence, and stared gloomily at
the opposite walls of the compartment.
At last wo reached our destination.]
and stretched our cramped leys on the |
platform of Kssen station.
Rut our trials were not vet over.
We were marched the whole length ;
of the train, and 1 noticed the interest- :
ing fact that both the driver and "lire
man" were women.
At the far end of the station was a
large, cheerless room, and into this we ,
were taken, whilst armed soldiers kept
guard outside and others stood by the
doors. Had wo been prisoners guilty
of the most serious offenses we could i
not have been guarded better.
We had not had a mouthful of food
since we left Wcse, and I for one j
was not slow in letting the German
agent with us know that a menl would
be appreciated. My inquiries for food. |
however, wero received with sneers.
"You are in Germany, now," said 6nn j
of the soldiers, a sort of under cflicer J
"We have to go short at times, so can ,
you expect to be feasted?"
I had always been told that the Ger
mans wero thorough, but I never
realized how thorough they were until '
1 underwent that examination <vn IOssen
station, livery vestige ot clothing v.aa
taken from me and searched. I was ,
made to answer a whole :;'ri.".g of ques
tions as to my age and nationality,
had I ever been to Essen before, who
were my parents, where" did th?>y live,
what were their occupations, had I ever j
been to Britain, when was 1 thf-re last, j
what information could 1 give as to !
the state of affairs in Britain, what I
preparations wctc the British making. f
was there uny shortage of food, did I
come to Essen of my own free will. ;
and what wero my qualifications ns
an engineer? These and a thousand ?
other questions of a like nature were
fired at me, and my companions, the J
answer to each being taken down in *
writing, signed and witnessed.
Next the papers which we had been
given by ...auerbach w??ro taken and
fxsmined as a sort o? after thought, ;
and these, too. were signed by* an of- j
ficer. The examination lasted fully i
three hours, and th-?n. worn out with
the s-train, we were told that we must '
follow the agent, and were free.
My idea of freedom does r.oV by any
means correspond with that of the Gen
mans. Naturally, I thought that we'
should be conducted by the agent to;
a ltouse where we should find food, but ;
instead we were accompanied by an
armed guard and conducted to the po
lice headquarters, where wo were put :
through a further searching examina- '
Once again I asked for food, for by I
this time I was almost fainting. The
chief of police, to whom I addressed
my question, seemed rather surprised
that any one should dare to S?e so fa
miliar with him. The chief ot' polica
in Kssen is a very important personage,
at nil events in his own estimation, j
Kor fully a minute he glared at me. !
and then curtly to'.d me to pay atten- !
tion to the questions he was putting.
"But. Herr." I said, "I and my com- j
panions have not tasted food sineo 1
midday nnd are faint."
"That is not my business. I am not '
a caterer," he said. "When you have
been examined, no doubt. Herr Schmidt,
the agent of Krupp?, will see. that you!
arc supplied." |
And Herr Schmidt smiled affably. lie
hastened to explain that but for the!
accident to the troop train all these i
formalities would have been completed i
long ago. and that he would have been
lid of us. lie, too, had gone without
food, but with unctuous patriotism
added, "A German will make any sac- '
rifice for the l-'atherlahd." j
"l didn't come here to rnako sacri
fices. Ilerr Schmidt." 1 returned. "I
came to wot k. and I cannot work un- !
less I have food."
-Peace. Ilerr. peace " said Schmidt, j
"A few moments and your wants will
be met. All must make sacrifices in
Uerniany to-day."
I realised then what .1 r??ot j hud

Helpless and Tortured With Rheumatism of Joints, Now'

"It means a new lease of life to
me to go about as 1 do now," said
.Mrs. Alice V. Tnrennc, of 121
Second Street, Leominster, Id ass.
"The greater part, of two years I
spent in bed, not only was I helpless,
but I suffered agony every hour. My
knees woro frightful to look upon,
swollen to almost twice their nat
ural sizo and as stiff as two sticks of
wood. The only way I could ease '
th? terrible pain was to place two I
pillows against .the knees to keep ,
them from rubbing together.
"I was propped up in bed with '
pillows on both sides of my back be- !
cause of the extreme tenderness of
my spine. I could not stand oven J
ilie pressure of the bed clothes on my i
back. t
".My feet were quite useless, swol- j
len terribly, and every time I at- ;
tempted to move the pain would make :
me sick. I also had sciatic rheuma- 1
tlsm, the puin would start at my
hips and run down my legs to my !
toes; it was as though a red hot iron
was rearing the flesh. It is impossi
ble to describe what 1 have gone ,
through, and only one who suffers i
from chronic rheumatism can under- !
stand. '
"Treatment of various kinds
failed to relieve me, and I was com- j
pletely discouraged when \ heard of
Var-ne-sis. Friends persuaded me to i
try the medicine, as it was helping
so many others. After taking Var- ?
ne-sis I was able to go about on i
crutches and gradually recovered so !
that I discarded my cane. During my j
illness I fell away to ninety pounds.
Var-ne-sis not only cured my rheu
matism, but helped my stomach from
the first, and gradually i regained
my former weight. 1 am well and
strong to-day. thanks to Var-ne-sis."
Rev. Paul M. Cayor, of 5G Willow
Street, New Bedford, Mass., verifies
