THREE PRICELESS RELICS OF HISTORIC FRANCE CARPET HUN HUTS j i TAPESTRIES DESCENDING TO , PRESENT DAY FROM MEDIEVAL TIMES CARRIED AWAY FROM CHATEAU THIERRY TO CARPET DUGOUTS IN TRENCHES BEHIND THE FRANCO-AMERICAN LINES. August 20. iCorresponJ ence of The Associated Press.) Price less tapestries, furniture of the Louis XIV. period, grand pianos and rich portieres found by the Hun in Chateau Thierrv. were carried away by him in his retreat, and used to furnish dug outs. Following the German retreat Amer ican units inspecting the enemy dug outs for concealed boches found the elaborately furnished subterranean apartments. The care and design of the; furniture varied with the rank of the' officer, it was discovered. At one of the quarters that of a German general the sides of the dugout were lined first with lumber looted from the town, and over the lumber were placed embroidered portieres. To pre vent dust from falling from the roof, which had been first protected by cor rugated sheetiron, several artistic tap estries had been attached. The grand piano was found in the headquarters of a regiment. It was thought by the Americans that here the regimental staff reveled over their first successes and the use of German artists to play the Instrument was re sorted to. Finely carved tables and chairs were found In profusion in this rendezvous. Other dugouts were fur nished also in elaborate style varying in degree with the rank of the occu pant Beds from Chateau Thierry took up much of the space in some of the hish-1 er officers' quarters.

REVIEW WANT ADS FOR RESULTS' Sold Everywhere, VIE DRimWIW Ajf Wit MOST AMAZING DISCLOSURES BY STATE DERT. (Continued from Page On) ' as the world is now convinced con- I veniently furnished her pretext. These documents further show that before the world war was four months old, anJ more thall two year3 bpfore the United States drawn into it, Germany already was setting afoot her plans to "mobilize destructive agents and ob servers" to cause explosions, strikes and outrages in this country and plan ned the employment of "anarchists and escaped criminals" for the pur pose. Almost ranking in their sensational nature with the notorious Zimmerman note proposing war by Mexico and Japan upon the United States, which was first given to the world through the Associated Press, these docu ments lay bare a new stratum of Prussian intrigue, a new view of the workings of kultur to disrupt the al lies, standing between the world and kaiserism. They disclose a new story of human treachery for gold .which might, almost well be described with out sacrilege as placing its perpetra tors on a pedestal with Judas and his thirty pieces of silver. The intrigue appears to have been carried down to the last detail of ar rangement with typical German sys tem. It will be revealed completely in a series of seven articles furnished by the committee on public informa tion for publication each morning un til the series is completed. Not only do the disclosures prove that Lenine, Trotzky and their band are paid German agents, they show that the Bolshevik! revolution which threw Russia into such an orgy of murder and excesses as the world sel dom has seen, actually was arranged by the German general staff. They show how the paid agents of Germany betrayed Russia at tlje Brest Litovsk "peace" conference; how German staff officers secretly have been re ceived by the Boilshevikl as military advisors; how they have acted as spies upon the embassies of the na- the interest of Germany and to the shame and degradation of Russia. They 'show how 'a picked German commander was detailed to "defend" Petrograd against the German army and an extent of German intrigue and domination almost beyond the realm of imagination. unginais 01 oocumenis, pnuiograpua Bolsheviki, were required to be re turned later to representatives of the German general staff in Petrograd that thev mieht be destroyed. But evi- dence of them remained in the fabric of rougery and into the vacancies they fit perfectly. The Bolsheviki leaders themselves informed their '"comrades" REV EW WANT ADS RESULTS. BRING in Bottles Only BANDITS SOUGHT IN COLORADO AND ILLINOIS (Continued from Pace One) who are sought in connection with the robbery on July 10 of a MisRiiri, Kan- j sas & Texas train at Koch, aKs. In Denver a guard of detectives was maintained about the house o nCapitol hill, believed to he the rendezvous of the bandits while special details were scattered throughout the city. At po lice headquarters four automobile loads of policemen armed with rigles were held m readiness for any emerg ncy. Superintendent Adams ordered two companies of constabulary, one sta tioned on the Colorado-Wyoming border and the other on the New Mexico-Colorado border, to begin an en circling movement of Denver so as to prevent the alleged train robbers who still are believed to be In this vicinity from escaping. Four of the alleged bandits still are believed to be at liberty in the vicin ity of Denver and Chief of Police Haim ilton Armstrong expressed the belief that with the coming of darkness they would emerge from their hiding places and resume their mad automobile dashes which terrorized the city last inght Seven persons, four men and three women, are in custody as a result of last night's clashes with the police. They are: Frank Lewis, . arrested early today while speeding toward Colorado Springs in a taxicab. Roy Sherrill, captured early today after a gun fight with a posse south of Denver. Eva De Morris, sister of Lewis, ar rested with Sherrill. Lloyd Dale, arrested today at Se dalia. John Babb, stepfather of Lewis, ar rested last night in a raid of a house on Capitol hill, Denver. Mrs. Babb, mother of Lewis, arrest ed with Babb. Mrs. Frank Lawis, arrested with the Babbs. Dale, according to the police, was released this summer from, the Mis sorl penitentiary where he was known under the name of Erdway. DESPERATE JAIL BREAKERS CHICAGO, Sept. 14. With the four criminals who cut their way from the county Jail Thursday night reported fleeing toward the Illinois-Iowa line by way of Rock Island, John Kempter, the guard, who is held responsible for their escape, gave himself up to day and will be held pending an in vestigation of alleged discrepancy in the stories he has told of the affair. The four desperate fugitives. Earl Dear and Lloyd Bopp, both convicted murderers, under sentence of death, "Big Joe" Moran, nationally known as a safe blower, and Frank McErlane, who was facing trial as an accessory in a slaying, are expected to put up a hard battle, if surrounded. James L. Mooney, chief of detec tives tonight prepared to send a squad of picked riflemen to Rock Island to take up the' chase in - case the men abandoned 4hir automobile aid took to the woods adjoining the Missis sippi bottom 'lands.

Police and sheriffs' posses of Peoria and Taze well counties tonight were scouring the surrunding country in a search for three automobile bandits who late this afternoon attempted to rob mine officials of $26,000 pay roll of the Groveland Mining company, and who shot and seriously wounded Detective E. J. Gustine of Peoria, and Walter Off, manager of the company. The attempter hold-up was staged on a lonely part of the road near the mine about eight biles south of here. Detective Gustine and Off were on the way to the mine in an automobile with the pay roll and found several railroad ties placed across the road. Gustine alighted. There was a shot from the bushes nearby and he fell with several buckshot wounds In his body. Off Jumped out of the car and as he did so other shots yere fired from the brush along the roadside. One shot took effect in Offs eye and an dhe probably will lose it. Off es caped to the mine office, a half mile away and. notified the police here. After the shooting the robbers fled, making no attempt to secure the satchel or money left unguarder in the machine. YANKS AWAIT RESULTS OF FRENCH BLOW (Continued from Pare One) will serve to keep tnt entire enemy defensive line in a state of perpetual unrest. Many officers believe the purpose will be shown more clearly as the win ter stts in by continued pressure against the German lines all along the front, to keep the enemy from stabi lizing his position and to keep his men from getting any rest. There' is no question in the minds cf these off cers that the supreme commander is aiming at the morale of the German ary by these harassing tactics as much as he is at advancement of his own battle front. Destruction of the tne my army after all. they say, is the only certain way to military victory. Genera! March, chief of staff, hint ed today at a continued offensive by Gtneral Pershing on the St. Mlhlel front. At his weekly conference with newspaper correspondents, he said elimination of the salient furnished a bitter base "for future offensive op eration." No official reports had come, however, to show the course General Pershing Is following since the two wines of his attack formed a junction and closed the mouth of the St. Mihiel trap on the enemy. Berlin reported officially that Per shlne's men were feeling their way toward "our new lines" east of Com brcs and northwest of Thiaucourt. Just what time this referred to was not clear.

It is not believed here, howover, that the enemy will yield control of the Eriey iron fields without a stubborn fiprht. and Pershing is advancing di rectly toward that important region. Discussing the American operations of the last two days, General March said: "The old Ft. Mihiel salient was the first one that was established iHong the western front, in September. 1914. and is the last one to go; the narrow est and most angular of all salients, projecting twelve miles into the Frent h line and having Important mili tary bearing because it Is across the railway of the Meuse valley, cutting off Verdun from Commercy and Toul and leaving only one supply line, the '" that goes out to the west toward Rheims. This salient was cut off by the American army in less than two days.- parts of Thursday and Friday, by quick, sharp blows on both flanks. "On the south flank our troops ad vnnce'd along a ten-mile front between Xlavray and Fey-En-Haye, up through the undulating plain of the W'oevre. On the north flank on an right-mile front, thoy advanced across the heights cf the Meuse, a ridge which is six miles 'wide, and broken by deep, branching ravines. Hy the evening of thr. first dnv. the south flank had been driven in five- miles and the north flank three miles. By evening of the second day the salient had been wiped out. "Tho removal of the salient short ens the l'ne 22 miles, restores rail communication between Verdun anJ St. Mihiel and Toul and gives a very much better base for future offensive operations than existed before this drive began. "It is to te noted that the German connnninue says they withdrew quiet ly from this sector in accordance with a carefully arranged plan, but this does not cover the 13,300 men they left behind. They constitute the com batant strength of an entire German division. "AH reports from the fighting sec tions in France Indicate the same high spirit, the lack of pessimism with which has always characterized our troops in France, and everyone gets I Into the swing of It the minute he I gets there.

Lacking official news of further ad vpnres by General Pershing's troops within the salient, the opinion that this movement has already reached the immediate limits It was planned to attain gained strength among mili tary officers.

While the stroke menaces the enemy's communications It opens the wav for other American attacks on a still larger scale. The enemy 'also has lost the equivalent of two divisions in prisoners killed and wounded." The Dally Chronicle. says: "General Pershing's brave troops de serve congratulations an their very, skillful and efficient piece of fork.'. The United States may well be proud of the manner in which Its ' -young-' army comported itself In the first In dependent offensive." The Times records the belief that i 'be finnl return of prisoners will con-1 slderably exceed the number given In . the official statement and says: i "For all the allied nations the deep 1 interest in the American victory lies not so much in its results, which are valuable and extensive, but the fact that a great American force has gone Into tattle acting separately. The Oernian nation now will begin to real ize as !t has never yet, the overwhelm ing and decisive character of the new ! factor which is emerging in the war. ' More was destroyed at St. Mihiel than a German salient.
