who try to do so must avoid villages

another occasion one of the men be
came delirious for wmu, of drink whilo
the sentries were on board. Mis com
panions had to gag him to prevent him
i from attracting their attention.
Uofore the Hermans stretched their
electrified wire along the Mouse it was
?till possible for a jjood swimmer to
slip through the boats patrolling the
stream and to roach tho Dutch bank
above or below .Maastricht. A few men
succeeded in setting to Holland in thlr;
way. the amazement of the Dutcl*
frontier guards, who let them take
their clothes to reach tho town. At
the other end of the line, among the
muddy banks of tiio Scheldt, called
i "Schorre." some attempts weto made
to cross the wire at low tide. The man
were obliged to wade waist deep
f through the ,-wamps. keeping on the
move the whede time. In great danger
of being buried alive or picked up by
the Herman searchlights.
The majottty of tugUlves. however,
prefer to force their passage on terra
iirma. The crossing Is attempted either
i in force. by groups of titty to 100 peo
ple. or by small groups of twenty at
most. In tho tirst case, lighting Is
; bound to take place while some of the
men cut the wire with special pincers,
ar.d the otKiers are holding the breach
open armed with daggers and revolvers.
It is by far the most successful method,
but there is a great difficulty in gather
ing a sufficient number of men at the
'appointed place without arousing sus
picion. Mr. Melot gives us the report
of a meeting of those conspirators in
a wood close to the frontier: "There
, was a solemn moment. We all swore
to sacrifice our life, If nceil be. rather
| than remain in Belgium, and bo com
pelled t.? work for the enemy." There
were, in fact, on thi? particular oc
casion, several' dead on both sides.
When the number of fugitives is too
small to allow a successful armed re
: sistancc. all depends on secrecy. l.ed
| by their guides, who know every Inch
of the ground, the men remain hidden,
waiting for a favorable moment. Most
of the time the whole night passes
without affording a chance of success,
land they must come back the next day
1 to another part of the line. Some miii
i ItavH tried ten or ti'ten times before
. crossing. At last, tho conditions being
favorable, the signal Is given and tho
I men set to work. The first and last
I fences can. be cut, but the electrified
! fence remains the main obstacle. The
wires are sometimes stretched with
' sticks in order to allow tho men to
slip through, or a small double ladder
is placed over the obstacle. A slower
process consists in diguing the ground j
utider fence. uutll Iho uitch is deep !
enough for a man t<? trawl under It. j
