Our arrival seemed to <*ause some cxcitem?nt. Shrill feminine volcos called. One of those Amerikaner cor respondents had returned. He was sick. There was a line flutter among tho Zimmermadchens.

The English-speaking wife of the proprietor cumo up duly fiolicitous. She had no vacant room, but assuredly she would find a room for a eorrespondant, especially for one who was kranke, which is to Bay ill. It was not a large room which eho produced. In fact it was excessively small, but sick men cannot be choosers. THIKJl ONK OF .MOST , OKi?nj:ssivr; itiitCMSn towns Its one window looked out on a dreary, dead wall. Through U came the sound of street car bells and tho monotonous voices of aged newsboys crying their afternoon papers along with other noises of the town, which Is at once one of the mort picturesque, and at the same time most (thoroughly hocho and most thoroughly depressing of all Rhenish towns. Two Zimmermadchens peered timidly into -the room. Where had we been since we went away from there? What ?was the trouble? Ach! It was doubt less the Spanish fever. There was much Spanish fever in Trier. We had betrter be careful. One of their broth ers had died not long ago from Span ish fever and bo quick we would scarce, ly believe it. This was cheering news indeed! And now came other members of the "flying circus." or press division. Never let it be said that they would pTinlt a worthy brother to lack com pany in the hour of his illness, especi ally when ho had the only spare room in town.

Captain Gerald Morgan, chief censor of the American army, arrived with his trusty red pencil in hand, took a look around the room and then es tablished *. temporary ofTloe on a little table at th?r head of our bed.

FKYISUISH PHANTASIES OVKHCOMi: PATIENT liy this time f&ver had commenced to creep over us, and we had a liazy illusion that they wero holding our wake. We conceived the horrible idea that Captain Morgan wan slapping his familiar stamp, "passed by censor," on us and put us on the cablo. Faces grew vague and indistinct through the fog of smoke. As an evidence of our feverish phantasies we thought we heard the voice of Herbert Haiiey, of the London Times, ordering wine-. Presently Lieutenant du Tessen ar rived with the precious manuscript of Koch's remarks. It was in French, and all hands save ours manned their type writers, while Noble Hall took a chair In the middle of the room, and started to read the manuscript into ICngllsh. *ri?AKKlt WAUOLRN HKUKIl TO KMPJIAHIZK ItK.lIAHKS Recomlnc imbued with the spirit of the roinarks, hlo voice took on a sonorous intonation, lie waggled his loft Indox lingor by way of ctriphasin. The typewriters rattled llercely Into Ills lingual path. Now and then there was a pause for everybody to debate the exact shading of some Frenchy phrase. Lieutenant du Tessen sat compla cently regarding tho activity, which was irv a sense tho result of his en deavors. Occasionally Bert Ford, of the In ternational News Service woujd arise solemnly and shako hands with Du Tessen, so carried away was he by Koch's conversation and I)u Tessen being the nearest representative of the French nation.
