London.'-Maer have beers the tates exaggerated or without foundation, which have passed fronm nouth to mouth, and even found their way into print. of prisoners of war who have been sent homne with faces disfigured by brands of the Cerman eagle, snakes end other horrible objects. Mlany )of these stories could not be traced by the aufhorities and were attributed to heated imaginations. A correspowdent of Lloyd's Weekly, however, has dlis -overed a very had rase of Huan saº agery, which sufficiently testifies to this method of mutilation by branding or tattooing, being no efaggeration. "The man's mame is ItoughtoR and be lives in a miserable slum near Wa terloo, hating to go out in daylight.

On either side stretch eight human-hooted legs, while front the middle, or head of this horror. hangs a ring showing that the man brand ed thus is the property of the Turks for eternity. 'Yes., that is what I have to show for my share in the great war,' said the branded man. "I have seen a lot In may life. I was born fifty-seven years ago in Chicago and I guess there are a good many men there yet who remember the same of Roughton. famous for feats of strength and phys tcal endurance right through from Maine to California. "'My life has always been one of adventure. I have been a "strong sman" and an acrobat in circuses. "'When the war broke out in 1914, I .olned up with a regiment of royal en gineers that was being recruited in the States, and over I came to the -ighting front. "'I was at Moas, and I got the ribbob right here,' and hi produced a little blurred ribbon. 'But I sever wear it. After I'd4 nished with the Second army In France I was moved to Sa tonika, and then to Mesopotamia. and that's where I got eaught.

I was put to work pulling a plow, and when I didn't covet enough ground, or the furrows that I made were crooked, I was beaten with a leather eat-o'-nine tails that had nails at the end of ea.h thong. "'Then the great potentate for whom I worked seemed to realize that he was wasting good materiat in rough, unskilled labor, and after many weary punishments he placed me (witle this badge of shame upon my brow and the price of 5,000 marks upon my .head should I try to escape) as the guard ian of his harem. *"'Among the many women staves in this place there was a young Arabian girl who had been stolen and sold to the mat who was our master. bihe was unhappy to the verge of madness. and the horrors throughs which she went on many occasions nearly drove me out of my mind. By methods that are too long to tell you, this Arabian and myself plotted and planned to gethee and succeeded in escaping. Finally we snanaged to get in touch with British troops.'

Many of the men were from Nashville, so old friends were recalled and personal reminiscences indlllged in until train time. Brittany, once famous for the boun teous repasts served in the fishermen's cottages, as well as in the chateaus. has been hard hit by the war. Like all France, that particular section has been forced to retrench in order that the troops might be well fed. But somehow Baroness de Charette man ages to spread a feast for the boys who come to her house each week. She accepts gifts of sugar from the V. M. C. A. canteen, and with it smakes de licious chocolate. old-fashioned tea cakes and pies that 9tase that "honey' taste that the boys like. A nreat and jam sandwich. a generous helping of Saratoga chips and a glass of Hider usually completes the nealt. In the drawing room is a piano 150 years old. It is not an heirloom that is kept edosed by any means. for the bar oness invariably rinds a soldier amone her guests who can play, and the lit tile rosewood "music box," almost toy like in size, is made to resound to rol licking ragtime. Persian rugs are rolled up and dancing follows. Interesting Mementeoes The chateau Is a beautiful place sit uated on a large wooded estate. It has been in the Charette family for ages and the reception rooms contain many 'interesting mementoes of bygone days. Baron de Charette was a member of an old royalist family bitterly op posed to the separation of church and state, and for ten years was com mander of the army that defended Rome. This army was made up ef volunteer forces from many countries. whose strong religious faith inspired them to enlist under the banner of the church. Ten years ago General Charette and the baroness visited America and spent some time in Tennessee. He died six years ago. and since then the baroness has remained at her estate il Brittany. Her sister, Miss Polk of Maury county. Tennessee, lives with her. The doughboys who visit Basse Motte are a source of never-ending in terest to the tiny Marquise Antoinette de Charette, three years eld, grand daughter of the baroness. The smalt daughter of the house is the child of Baron de Charette, w'ho followedl the family tradition and married a: Amer. ican.
