WITH THE BRITISH ARMY AT
THE FRONT, November 1.?\If any
one doubts the cruelty of the Germans
to French civilians let him visit
Denain. During three years the Ger
mans allowed the people of Denain
three dead army mules for fresh
meat. All horses, cows, cattle and
poultry were requisitioned, as were
the crops. The penalty imposed on
citizens for harvesting their own
grain was 80 marks ($20), including
seizure of the grain. The owners
could not pick fruit from their own
trees and could not gather their own
vegetables except under severe re
People Nearly Starved.
The 20,000 inhabitants remaining in
Denain were nearly starved. They
are emaciated, yellow, sickly and con
sumptive. but brave nevertheless. On
Sunday when the Prince of JVales,
with Gen. Sir Arthur Currie and the
general commanding the 4th Division
of Canadians entered Denain to at- I
tend the simple ceremony of thanks
for the liberation of the city, the
prince passed through the battered
streets, which were lined with enter
ing and weeping old men, women and
children. Under the banners of all
nations the party came to the square,
where the empty pedestal of the
French Gen. Villars marks the small
ness of the Germans. The bronze
statue was stolen by the invaders.
Here the party was haUe.d and was
received by the civil auffiorities and
a flag presented to the 4th Division,
which was the first to enter the town.
Next the party proceeded to a little
shell-torn church, where, while the
prince stood under the torn roof, the
priest told of the city's tortures. \With
tears in his eyes he said simply to
the prince: "Thank you." The thanks
were for the deliverance. If the
prince had been with the Canadians
on October in, when the town was
taken, he would have realized what
the deliverance meant. Under the
impetuous attack the Germans ran
fighting in the outskirts of the town.
Trying to make a stand by the rail
road, they were bombed out with
trench mortars. A boy sergeant head
ed the soldiers who mopped up the
town. The civilians, when they knew
that the Germans were gone, rushed
to the soldiers and kissed the Cana
dians as they were never kissed be
Boys Stone Prisoners.
Boys stoned the prisoners waiting
at the intelligence station, asking:
"Are the Germans going to return
that way?" The embers of the burned
haystacks w,ere still smoldering. The
power plants and other structures at
the mine pits were blown into a mass
of crumbling brick and metal. The
smokestacks stretched across the
roads were cleared away just enough
to allow lorries with supplies to pro
ceed to the front. If the prince had
been there a few days earlier he
would have seen the bodies of dead
civilians killed by German projectiles
and gas shells which forced the wom
en and children from the cellars. Even
a field ambulance was gassed and the
sick and wounded had to be brought
to the upper stories of the houses.
Twenty horses were killed.
Famished People Eat Horses.
Even this supreme torture of the
Germans brought relief to the people.
As the Canadians dragged the horses
away the famished civilians, though
sick from the gas, sprang upon the
animals and with long knives end
axes, under the eyes of the amazed
Canadians, cut the horses to bits and
left nothing but bones for the soldiers
to bury. Later even the bones were
unearthed to be cooked and not
enough was left to fill the grave of
one dog. *
In cutting up the horses women
struggled madly with each other for
a share, pushing one another away
until it resembled a shambles. Boys
and girls ran home with ribs and
steaks over their shoulders, soaking ?
their clothes, while the mothers re
mained to strip the fat from the in
Sunday the prince was able to see
the Canadian doctors attending the
civilian patients, many of whom,
weakened through lack of food, were
ill and suffering from boils. The Tom
mies are sharing their rations with
the people and special lorries are
bringing tons of food to the civilians.
How times have changed for the peo
ple of Denain!.
German soldiers in the ranks were
not so bad. telling the people when
light shown from their windows or it
appeared that they were doing some
thing for which fines were imposed.
The (Jerman officers, and above all
the under officers, were the w<?pt.
They had people fined for walking
across the street and collected boys
as laborers. A general forced an old
grayhaircd man to kneel at his feet
for forgetting to bow when he
passed. The Germans said It would
be worse when the British came, be
cause while the Canadians were good
soldiers they were "savage, savage
beasts." However, the people of
Denain think otherwise.
