patoh Rider on Motorcyel
Cry Out of Him aa Automobile
Daahea Over Rough Roada to Taka
Him to Hoapltal—Example of Hun
11 Savagery in Bombing of Commercy.
§| He la only eleven years old but the
|j| entire battlefields of Europe have fali
gj ed to produce a bigger hero.
Hi I I came across him the other day
H wW1 e on my way to Saint Mihlel, dur
H Ing Which I noticed a.crowd in the
gi | road near Pagny sur Meuse. A dough
boy stepped from the crowd and
stopped our car, saying that
American motorcycle dispatch rider
had struck a child and broken his leg.
He also explained 'that the rider had
sustained a dislocated shoulder.
There were no hospitals or doctors
In the town, so we stopped and I told
him the D. R. I. would take him back
to Toni to the hospital. He asked me
If I would deliver his dispatches and
when I told him I could not, he
fused to go to the hospltaL
Gives First Aid.
So the chauffeur, the doughboy and
.ayself got hold of him, wedged him
against the car qnd pulled on his left
arm until we snapped It back in the
I got him some cognac from a
Frenchwoman. He took a drink,
finally got on his motorcycle and rode
HI on slowly.
Then I looked at the boy, a French
i kid abont eleven years old. His right
I leg bone was snapped off clean as a
whistle Just below the thigh, so that |t
wabbled around. His poor old father
was standing there helpless, and beg
ged that I wouldn't leave the child
there helpless "comme unchien," like
a dog in the road.
So we put the lad in the car and
rushed him to the Toul hospital. It
must have caused him excrnclating
pain as we dashed over the road but
never a word of complaint, although
in the front seat I could hear him
sucking In his breath sharply from the
torture of the broken ends of the bone
rubbing against one another.
I He was' as tthlte as marble. We
put him 111 the hospital at Toni. I
then went on to Saint Mihlel, and as
I was passing through the buckle of
the Meuse river southwest of the
town where It Is low and flat and was
formerly "no man's land," covered
with barbed wire, an American avia
tor, Lieut. Palmer Galllard of Mobile,
who knows my grandfather, stepped
ont and asked me where he was.
Knew It Was All Right
He had been forced to land through
engine trouble and was not sure
whether he was in the allied or Ger
man lines, but when he saw a car
marked "U. S.," he knew it was all
right He was a long way from an
inhabited town, as the nearest ones, a
couple of kilometers away, had been
shelled to pieces, and he couldn't talk
French, so was In a bad position.
I picked him up and we went to
Saint Mihlel. It was Just getting
dark, and the Boche bombed na there,
at Commercy, going back, at Void, at
Pagny, and at Toni again, where I
dropped him and I ran Into a raid get
ting back to Nancy. Six raids In
one night is a record, I guess.
We stopped outside Commerjy while
they were bombing It, then running
through we could smell powder wher
ever a bomb struck.
They were taking a dead child out
of one house and dragging a wounded
woman ont of the cellar of another.
