The Eitel Friedrich was one of the

Armed with guns from two small

ship Jean was captured and the raider
took it along as a supply ship.
The Eitel Friedrich sank the British

of 22. With it came startling stories
of the exploits of the German cruiser
Moewe.
The Mocwc had managed to slip
through the British blockade In the
North sea, sink 15 ships, and slip tank
into port with four British officers, 29
British marines, lß8 from crews of
sunken steamers and $200,000 in bar
gold from the Appam.
The most famous raider, until the
"Black Balder** was heard from, was
the Finden, which started exploits in
the Atlantic upon the declaration of
war with Bussia. Her adventures, end
ing with her destruction and the re
markable escape of part of her crew
with their return to Germany, furnish
one of the most thrilling stories of the
war.
Starting from the German free port
of Tsing Tau, In China, the Kmden
cruised about in the Pacific and South
Atlantic and in 14 weeks sank 23 mer
chant ships, including shipping the
Germans valued at $15,000.000.
One of the marvelous feats of the
Emden, which was commanded by Capt.
von Muller, was destruction of the Rus
