Majors abounded in the Yankee nets, and the captains atyl lieutenants captured were too many to mention. And they were bet ter than majors—though, naturally enough, the higher you go the fewer. "You can never make a safe Judg ment as to the morale of an army from the morale of prisoners, for when any man fails into the hands ot the enemy he feels as though the world were coming to an end. So it is quite humanly comprehensible that when the mighty Count von Wendel gave stately recognition of the fact that those Americans had surrounded him, he radiated the impression that the war had either come to an end thereby or might as well stop grace fully. MUglity Count von Wendel. "The Count, who was formerly aide-de-camp of Crown Prince Rup precht of Bavaria, and whom we found as a lieutenant- colonel com manding the 3rd Bavarian Infantry, had taken refuge in a quarry along with 200 Germans of various ranks. "His cave was surrounded early In the day and the unswerving Yankee Infantry passed by, leaving only enough to guard the entrances to the quarry and take occasional pot shots into it. All day the invested 200 held out, and then toward sundown they surrendered. They did not shout 'Kamerad, kamerad!' Not they. They surrendered in the good old-fashioned way, followng a fashion almost for gotten in this death-or-g!ory war. "For at sundown the Count sent out a white flag, and with it a formal note of surrender. This was gravely received and answered, and a little later the Count emerged, followed by an imposing company. "He seemed a little offended at something. Possibly he Was faintly surprised not to find General Per shing waiting outside on a milk-white charger. Certainly he was vocal with indignation because no motor-car awaited him. Mopping Up the Caves. ' - "The American officer* expressed their regret—nay, their grief—that none was available, and the laut seen in that neighborhood of the former aide of the Crown Prince Rupprecht, he was hiking with the rest at the 200 j —hiking 16 kilometers to the rear. "Many such caves and quarries are I to be found in the contested country jstde between the Aisne and the Ourcq. They are perfect places for i P.C.'s, and they are formidable refu ges for beaten soldiers who want to die fighting. Fortunately for the : Yanks who had mopping-up duty to do last week, most of the Germans did not want to die at all. The resistance from within the caves could hardly be called stubborn. "One mammoth cave dtd threaten to hold out to our coat, but French cavalrymen drove their rideless hors es into the opening, drew the machine gun fire on them, and then charged the cave themselves. "One such cave had many guns on many tiers. It had ammunition and food to serve a regiment, and it had bunks for 2,000 men. Little Sergeant Hercules. "It was in a deep, inaccessible dtlg out that one high German comman der was found—the one the Yankee regiment concerned in hte capture be lieves to have been a major-general. Certainty 35 men guarded him as if he were very precious to the German Army, and be was whirled away in an auto to a high Freneh headquarters as if he might have information Im portant enough to seek without a mo ment's waste of tfme.

'Sergeant Hercules Korgto is a Greek by birth. He was In the Greek war that preceded the present explo sion of Europe, and he was gay with many medals when he went to Amer 'ca and settled down In West Lynn, Mass —settled down, as you have al ready guessed, in the restaurant bus mesa. Ot course he enlisted the first rack out of the box. He showed himself one of those small but terri ble fighters and his regiment treasur ed him. "In the first morning of the ad ance. Sergeant Korgis was shot thru he nock by a German machine gun .nd. thus wounded,he was taken pria- , mer. He was borne off Into an easily iefended. well-munitioned little ra ine. w here à whole German company I ay unnoticed by the Yankees who ! iwept by them and far beyond. "A* the day wore on. these G«r mans saw that they were trapped, but they also saw that they could make their captors pay a heavy price for their final submission. A Wild Looking Envoy. "Sergeant Korgis, who, like most restaurant«*™, speaks a smattering of half a do sen languages, drew on all the German he knew for an eloquent harangue that carried the day. Early n the afternoon, they decided to sur render and sent him forth to nego tote their safe passage to the rear, "With his wound dressed but still Yankee sergeant. ■.mining him. with mud and blood all oyer him, he wts. wild-looking en vby when he ran into some French soldiers, who decided he was a apy and were ail for shooting him then and there "He dissuaded them from this drastic action, pursued and caught up wth some stray Americana from hte own outfit, laid the case before them. and .lad by one Corporal Wiley, they, went over for the formal surrender. "There was one nèrvout, excited exchange of shots between one unruly German machine gunner and one dis trustful Yankee before the whole 280 marched out of the ravine and were escorted by the aergeant to regimen tal headquarters "There hte own officers pounced on the sergeant and had him sent back In the ambulance to the Held hospital. His wound had been well dressed by a German surgeon who la ter became one of his prisoners "One grlszled sergeant was some what taken aback when 76 forlorn German youngsters he had captured began to snivel dejectedly. The ear geant appealed loudly for the help of : who could talk Boche. 'Tall em no one', going to hurt them Tall 'em they've never been so well off In all their lives * German Officer» a» litter Bearers "Many German flrst-ald »tattona, stacked with fine equipment, fell into American hands, and some five Ger man doctors, attended by a large train of German medical corps order les, were among the captives of regiment. They were promptly P«' to work under an American medical corps major. All day they dressed r.he wounds of the injured German prisoners—and when none of these vas about, they worked expertly on the Yankees whom German shells and German machine guns had wounded. naa L n j Indeed, many of the prisoners had « been taken than they were ork as litter bearers. The someone no soon nut to regimental aid stations had plenty of work for them to do, and afterwards a German lieutenant felt obliged to protest that in the rush of things, he. an officer, had actually been required to carry a common litter. "One medical department private who had worked tirelessly with the wounded and impressed every man he could lay hands on into the bust of carrying hurt Yankees and the hurt Germans to the doctors was up to his neck in this work when a German major exasperated him be yond measifke by refusing flatly to soil his hands with such menial ser vice. "I am an officer," he explained coldly. "The private brandished an omin ous dagger he had Just acquired as a souvenir. "Officer, hell!" he said. "The major carried the litter."
