Do Their Best to Exterminate Foe,
Jersey Soldier Writes.
Montclair, Dec. 18.—In a letter to a
friend here Kenny Coulliard of Mont
clair, who has been fighting two years
with the Canadian Forces in France,
says the Canadians are taking few
prisoners. Coulliard was recently
"gassed" and is now recuperating in
"The Hun ne»er meets ue hand-to
hand now," Coulliard writes. "He'll
fire a machine gun at us until we get
up close, and then out he comes with
his hand up, squealing for mercy. We
have got sick of taking prisoners, so
that every time we go over the top we
do our best to exterminate those that
our arillery doesn't get. The enemy
doesn't make many counter attacks
on the Canadians unless he is abso
lutely driven to It, and I think that
when the good old 'Yanks' get at him
and pound him this winter and next
«pring lie will be ready to quit."
Herman Mutehler, Prominent Saloon
keeper, In U. S. Custody.
Hoboken, Dec. 18.—Hoboken Is won
dering why one of its well known clti
sens was taken from his place of busi
ness in handcuffs and conducted by
secret service men to the army pier.
There are rumors than the man Is on
Ellis. Island and is charged with some
eerious offense. The man is Herman
Mutehler, prominent Elk and Mason
end captain of the Schuetzenbund
•there. His expensively furnished sa
loon at Washington and Eleventh
■treets was listed two months ago 1
among those in the barred zone which
could no longer dispense intoxicating
liquors. Since that time Mutehler ha3
been selling what he claimed was
near beer.
Government officials refused to die
cuss the arrest other than to verify it.
It was admitted that the procedure of
arresting a man accused of α mere
simple breach of the law did not in
clude handcuffing and that a person
wanted on a charge of soiling liquor in
the barred zone would not be taken to
the army pier.
Telltale Eyes and Toes.
The eyes tell the etory of guilt when
all the other muscles are controlled. I
This you will lenrn In the eleventh
chapter of Darwin's book. Sometimes,
when the face is controlled, as in tho
cose of natives of India, other muscles
ere uncontrollable. Sir Henry Maine
declares that In India the judge can
tell when a native is lying by watch
ing his tc <s. He keeps his face per- 1

aionless, but his toes begin to wiggle |>
