-During the following month
they were interned in a hut-?elevea

The prisoners had to slaep on boards

following menu shows:
?*One quart of coffee in the morn

"Later on the warm soup was
given out daily, and in March the
menu was slightly improved, the

??Forty ounces of bread for four
men; one quart of light ?oup at noon,
composed of six pounds of linseed
Hour and beet roots boiled in 100
quarts of water: one quart of light

Reprisal Camps Werse.
??The prisoners in reprisal camps
were never allowed any meat, and
they were submitted to all sorts of
vexations. Some were deprived of all
their personal belongings. In ordinary
camps, conditions were not very dif

Parcels sent to them frpm France

"The schedule for the prisoner's day
is about as follows* Morning call at
six-o'clock, and work begins at seven.
Work consists in repairing roads, un

rails, erecting harracks. cleaning out
fortifications. and d'.ssing larger

It is the worst of folly to neglect

have no neutralising effect on the

Jean Stuart Puts Forth
Those Vampish Tentacles
Fascinating Lady, Leading in Play at Poli's,
Once a Lurer in the Movies, Ensnares a
Washington Herald Interviewer Despite
I lis Cautious Manner of Approach.
By THE PLAYGOER.
"When a Vamp Turncth," will probably be the title of a very
interesting chapter in the memoirs of Miss Jean Stuart if those
memoirs are ever written.
By this time you are, no doubt, aware of the identity of this
same Jean Stuart, but lor the sake of those who arc still in ignorance'
of the charms of this young lady, I might add that she is playing the
lead in "Seven Days' Leave" at Poli's this week.
Flirt* n Waive Costume. *
This simple statement is not quite
enough, however, for during the ac
tion of the play Miss rituart. for one
horribly brief moment, helps mate
rially to further the fame of a cer
tain brand of bathing suit known as
a Kellermann. But fleeting as the mo
ment is, it is well worth the journey j
and the price.
Previously, we were told. Miss Stu
art had devoted most of her time to
playing vampire part* in the movies. J
although last season David Belasco J
in his inimitable wisdom chose her for |
the leading role in the spectacular
"Wanderer." Dave was some picker,!
say we after a visit with the lady.
It is quite a leap from movie camp
ing to the gentle heroine role in!
"Seven Days' Leave," but Jean ha* j
negotiated the jump without casualty,
and it looks as though she has landed
on rather soft turf-at least she seems
perfectly at home . in the lo\able
heroine niche.
Hankered to Talk to Vamp.
Now I have always been more or
less interested in vamps. From the
moment I saw Theda Bara I have j
had a hankering to visit one in her
lair or wherever it Is that vampires:
loll. To have an opportunity of visit
ing one who had camped and then.
forsaken such parts was a novelty!
beyond resistance.
Hence I sneaked a little visit yes-j
terday, quaking all the time at the j
danger and with an inward vow that I
I would not be enmeshed in vampish j
coils.
"Beware the tentacles," was my
watchword as I awaited the lady at
her hotel. I did not have to wait
long. She came and steered me off '
to a cool little nook and had me seat
ed beside her almost before I had j
real-zed it. Completely disarmed was
your humble reviewer.
An Illusion Shattered.
A snakish-looking gown, probably |
green, on a creature who moved sin- |
uously is some idea of what I ex- j
pected. Did I get it? I did not. A
summery vision in pink georgette
mounted by a black meline hat that
shaded the brilliant blackness of her
hair was next me in white pumps.
(Taking a chance on this description.)
More like a school girl than our
conjured vamp. And eyes?and smil
ing lips?she had 'em all. But look |
as I might I saw no tentacles.
While I dwelt in a trance she. per
fectly at home, talked intelligently
and entertainingly on all sorts of sub
jects. Rather remarkable for a vamp
?but then Jean is a remarkable girl, i
She toid of her career on the stage,
of her ambitions, which all seem to be
wrapt up in the stage, and then asked
questions far faster than I could
answer them or even understand them.
But then, I was watching for
tentacles. And not a sign of one. Just
one composite picture of a beautiful
talented girl who qwed me even as she
set me at ease
At Last, Those Tentacles!
An hour did my visit last and each
succeeding minute we were better
acquainted. We discussed every
thing from philosophy to lingerie?
she with a fascinating abandon that
showed a knowledge of everything
?I more or less reserved as I
watched in vain for the tentacles
that did not appear.
But all nice things seem to end
rather sooner than later and Miss
Stuart, slated to give a perform*
ance. finally had to leave. She looked'
right straight Into my eyes as she
CASTOR IA
For Infanta and
in Use For Over 30 Years
said "goodbye." And then it hap- j
pened. The tentacles. I had been j
looking for them in most every place
but her eyes but when she looked I
at me like that. I knew they had j
me. 'Twasn't half bad. And I was !
getting sort of accustomed to the
spell when she loosened it and with
a quick shake of the hand she was
gone?whisked upward in an ele
vator while your servant had to
go bark to the prosaic world.
"And 1 learned about women from
her."
Yes. Jean has tentacles but they
are so covered with velvet that you
don't feel the pinch.

strike amendment was delivered to the
committee at its morning session by
Frank Morrison, secretary of the
American Federation of I^abor. He
charged that the steel companies and
other large trusts are back of the
Thomas amendment and that they
are urging it at this time in order to
gain a strangle-hold on organized
labor. The purpose of the amend
ment, he said, is nothing short of an
attempt to conscript labor.
Baker oa Married Men.
Regarding the intention of the War
Department to so arrange the ques
tionnaries that every married man will
determine automatically his right to
exemption, Secretary Baker said:
"We wanted to arrange tho regula
tions so as to save \ married man
who ought to be exempted from the
humiliation of claiming exemption, by
making the process as automatic as
possible- The theory upon which we
want to work this draft is that no
married man whose wife and children
are dependent upoft the continuity of
his earnings, and who will not be
able to live on his soldier's wages,
will be drafted. The draft will apply
to those married men whose incomes
are adequate to provide for their
families, those whose families have
independent incomes, and those men
whose families provide for them.
"The reason for the exemption of
the married man is dependency and
I not status.'*

patch received yesterday afternoon
from Zurich. It credita the following
information to a telegram received
by the Zurlcher Zeltung from Cracow:
Uareet In Warsaw.
"Deep unrest reigns at this moment j
in Warsaw. The streets of the town
sre full of patrols, who are making
great numbers of arrests. A great
number of searches and arrests are
also being made in the provinces of
Lomza and at Plosk among the sup

The widespread antipathy toward
Germany and Germans by the rioters
in Petrograd is deemed most reassur
ing by officials here, w^see fresh
evidences In these inst^^^fc of the
underlying hstred of t^n Russian
people toward the central powers.
Continued anti-German outbursts, they
believe, may prove to be the spark
that will eventually Inflame all;

WAR BOARD SEARCHES
FOR YARN HOARDERS
Smaller Merchants Have Unreported
Stocks of Knitting Wool.
Many small merchants throughout
the country, not listed in trade organ
izations. have failed to report to the
Woolens Section of the War Indus
tries Board their stock* of hand knit
ting yarns as requested August 12, ac
cording to the statement of the War
Industries Board.
The Red Cross hss bought stocks
of yarn from the large wholesalers,
manufacturers and retailers where
qualities and quantities have war
rented, at a nominal profit to ha
holder, but it requires a much greater
supply and will take up suitable stocks j
from smaller dealera as they are re- I
ported. The War Industries Board
has no desire to penalize those who
have reported their stocks of yam bf*
having them sell their yarn at a
small profit, for the benefit of those
who have not made a report, and
again asks for immediate replies from
sll who hold unreported stocks of
hand knitting yarns down to lots of
50 pounds. ?
Among other trifles. Count von Boon,
a member of the Prussian Upper
House, demands thst "Great Britain
shall surrender her entire fleet to Ger
