PARIS, Nov. 12. The Breton peas ant Is noted for his hardiness, but even In the annals of that sturdy race the adventure of Edmond Augler, late sergeant In a Chasseur regiment, will rank among the most remarkable. While reconnoltering with Ave com rades In a shell ravaged wood, he was separated from his companions and fell In with a party of eight German Uhlans. Finding escape Impossible he stood at bay behind a tree and drop ped three o&hls antagonists with his revolver before being finally'csptured. Incensed for the heavy price they had to pay for capturing the Frenchman, the Uhlans tied him to the tall of one of their horses and brought him Into the German lines. The commanding officer ordered Augler to be shot. Life Is Spared. The next morning, with four civil ians Angler was brought out to suffer death. They were lined up agafnst a wall, the firing-party took elm and fired. All fell. Including Augler, who by a miraculous chance was not kill ed though he had five bullets In his body, two In his right leg, two In his right arm. acd-one through his right shoulder. He had presence of 'mind enough to 11a still and feign death. But his tor ments were not yet over. The officer In command of the firing-party, to make sure the victims were dead, fired a shot from his revolver Into each of the prostrate forms. Forehead Farrowed. Augier's forehead was furrowed by the shot fired by the officer, but again his life was spared. All day he lay there In agony and trembling lest ther should come to Even Corpses Mast Pay 8 Per Cent Railroad Fare Tax, Government Roles The Bureau of Internal Revenue to day Issued a decision that the tax levied by the new law upon railroad transportation extends to corpses.

With great difficulty he dragged himself along till he gained the open country beyond the village. There he was dl (covered during the' night by a German patr.ol,- taken for a member of a French reconnoltering party, wounded la a recent skirmish, and conveyed to a f'eld hospital. In the hospital -the German surgeon advised amputatl.-n sf his wounded arm, but Augler refused to undergo the operation. From here he was later sent to a German hospital In the rear, and eventually, when he had sufficiently recovered, to a pris on camp. He had become a. cripple, his right arm was useless and he could only hobble along with a stick, while his forehead bora a livid scar. Four months ago he was sent to Switzerland and exchanged as one of the hopelessly wounded. When ha reached Paris the five bullets were extracted. His marvelous, escape from death, he attributes to a .scapular, given him by his mother, and which never left him. Profound effects on national poll- D N E I MENTIONED FOR RE CHSTAG SEA I COPENHAGEN.

This may prove difficult for Senator Wadsworth, In view of the promi nence of Mrs. Wadsworth among the antls, but. on the whole, the delega tion Is expected to be careful not to offend Women voters of New Tork State. Some of the New Tork deles-a- non nave heretofore supported suf frage and are not new converts. New York's vote for suffrage will not only give much sunnort to tha uurage national amendment, but It is certain to affect Congressional and Presidential elections greatly.
