It Is likewise evidenced in the Christian burial iv cn German dead and in the care taken by the J in. i ii a hs to properly marl: their graves. For while the creed of the Arnerl can soldier is to give no quarter la battle, these wounded are given every consideration when they call out that they have surrendered. Then It Is that mercy is known. In a little cemetery near Maau there are now graves n about thirty ilei niiiiis, each of win mi was given a Christian burial and each grave was marked with a neat Muck cross, upon Wblcb the inline of the (Jeriiinn was iMcrihed. A few yards' away Is an other ccinetcrj thai of I'Veucli anil America us. The only difference in the anner of burial Is that the American and French graves are marked with White crosses. Moreover, carclakers of die cenie-' tery, whenever they have placed tlow rs on the graves of fallen heroes of the allied armies, have also strewn the ground covering the enemy's sol- Hers with flowers.
