The Southerners then deliber-' ately mopped up the whole great tunnel. . The first Germans showing them selves at the entrance were ordered to Instruct the others to come out. The entire bag numbered more than 200. Investigation revealed that water running through the tunnel floated barges of every description. These were used as billets, offices, ammuni tion storehouses, and one even had a movie machine rigged up in it. The barges extended inward half a mile to a point where the tunnel Is 150 feet below the surface. PTlsonem Aa Guides. During the fighting In one tunneled section the problem to solve the un derground fortress combinations of the Hlndenburg lines proved unique. A South Carolina sergeant, leading a squad of German prisoners, asked where the southern entrance of the tunnel was. One of his captives re plied that the Yankees had passed It owing to the density of the smoke barrage. "All right. Jerry," the South Caro lina sergeant shouted, "usher us back. We want to peep Into that Aladdin's cavern of old Hlndenburg." Covering his prisoners, the sergeant and his men then trailed them to the entrance of the tunnel and .then sent one of them ahead to call out any other Germans In the cavern. One hundred and fifty Germans answered the summons, with held-up hands, and joined the sergeant's original group of captives. TWO FOE DIVISIONS FACE ANNIHILATION PARIS, Oct 1.

Out here in the melting pot, where life is cheap and death comes from above and below and 'around you, one sees life through a different glass and values change. They are doing noble work, those boys of yours, not only as soldiers, but as men. They do it gamely, and when it is time to die they are game to the end. I have seen a lot of them "go west," as it is called out here, but I have never heard a whimper or a regret, except that it meant they were out of the game. The little plots in the cemeteries marked 'Re served for American Troops" are filling rapidly, but let me tell you that the sacred ground of France holds no greater heroes than those boys of yours who eighteen months ago were at their desks and today are dying for a great ideal. ... , . , .

Of such stuff, is your boy, my dear friend, and you do well to praise him. Excuse mistakes. I am writing under shell fire, wrth a little candle for a light. Go on with your noble work. Make those at home who have no one in the furnace realize what is being done over here. Tell them to give of their wealth for these boys not the surplus that is left after dinners and dances, but let them sacrifice as we are doing. They do not know back home what universal mourning means. We over here do and we do not ask charity, but demand that, if we give our lives, those at home at least give up a little of their comforts, that with their mite a man's life may be saved or his end made a little easier.
