London. has ehatfed, writes Margaret Walter iin Chicag, Evening Post. Boe fore that it was the rarest thing that any boy showed a desire for revenge when he spoke of Fritz or Jerry. Even those who have suffered most in battle have been frank in their :ddniira-ton of the .e-mati as a fighting umau. But when the prisoners began to come Ia and tell their stories last month things changed, and now the boys have ror. ceived a personal hatred for Iriltur which will not be east off with hoipital blue and the return of these boys to civil life. One boy of twenty. who spent the last four months working in the malt mines of Germallny for three pfennig (prison ,money) :* day, tells :a story of wrongs and tufferingsa at the. handi of a flythieruu:ted American. T'his Germna- tmAcrie:nm. whut happen., to he in t11. fatherl:ant wthen wa1 broke out. .nli ilt9 it helit- t'eran tfed Cross, thu:ietll a . ser gnt, andt durinf the lanst tniotlis wa.bs put in chIurge of all Amneritca e prisouters in his canllp.

As our boys we.re l rought irn he at first treated theun witlh the greatest consideralion all gained their rympia thy by (iling thelm alt aabout his life In America and bemnoaning the sad fate that destined tine to be fighting on the wrong side. In this way he (lisarmed the Americans, got their con fidence, and in some ease., no doubt. obtained informatiom. Whern, however, he had got all that he could front the boys he would begiri a system of tor ture which in the end either kiilled them outright or redluced tt:en to a state of abject slavery that thas left its marks or every one of those who have survived to come back. "But I've got his name, you bet, here, written down ia my secret book, that they never got away from me, and just as soon as I get back home I'm going to the town where that see geant's family lives and I'nr going 4t show them what hate is." The white-faced boy raised himseli on his arms and two red spots burned in his cheeks. The other boys drew round aghast. They had evidently heard the tale before. Will Make It Met tot Mina. "We're going to join him, toe, alt te fellows ; when we get back home we're going io that town is Iowa where that German Ried Cross sergeant came from and make it too hot foe hine ever to dare to show up there agair. It sure isn't going to be a healthy place foe him to come back to. We don't want any more of that kintd .e itizema is America. The boy e. the eot told mae tat even now he can't sleep at night foe thinking of the horrors that took place deep in the bowels of those German salt mines. "The thirst torture was the worst~' he said. "When all the boys are asleep here at nigh" i get tlo 4!i.king ~ ow that sergeant made me go on my knees and beg for water, and then threw it on the grou.d in front of my face. I see as plain as if it were right here, and the sick boy bent double, shoved along in the working gang and never allowed to fall back till they dropped in their tracks, all beaten up with rifle butts. "But I've no complaint of the fare we had; miserable as it was, I be lieved it was as good as some of the Germans had themselves.

A fact which has beelr widely herad sd. lut which is pronouncelli of *tc ins portance by the clhetlists, is that ia sinatt sthatle redectiton plant was built at the euniversity abhout a year ago. It is not used now, enor did Its use ever have any speciat :idgntficance. To be oven mnore plain. the fact of this smal. retort having been built at the univer sity was seized spon by some pro -noters of "shale oil" companies and considerable advertising mnatteP has beersn irculated regarding asr "indus try" which does not exist. The proper method of reduction (de structive distillation Is the chemical ter'm) of oil shales of the United -tates has not been determined. Re fning of the resultant crudes has not bees satisfactorily accomplished. Chemists anticipate no difficulty in perfecting these processes--b-t It has not yet been done. Cruds Oile Very. The product of oil shale after "de etrdctive distillation" and retorting is a heavy, thick, dark oft, resembling Is mnany ways the petroleum known as fuel oil; end it may be used as such. These crude oill vary, as may be sup posed, according to the shalee frorm which they are pIrollced. They smell lmole like asphalt thert petroleurn. An immense amount of gas te liber ated by the distillation. Some enthust asts believe this gas will be a sufficient fuel supply for the retort furnaces, but in this the chemists do not agree. The idea savors too much of perpetual mo tios. important by-products are paraf in and ammonium sulphate. It is also considered probable some fortm of com mercial fertilizer will be obtained. Several bona flde experimental shale reduction plants are now being con structed in the three states mentioned. Chemists of the bureas of mines ate agreed that the greatest hindrance that could occur to the legitimate de velopment of a shale oil industry in the United States would be any extensive 'wildcatting"; that is, selling of stock in imaginative shale oil plants., or even in plants to be erected by uin-t formed persons and which may be held out to be practical commercial ventures. A shale eit plant is as ea periment in this country at the present time, nothing more. In order to encourage tegitimate and practical experimentation, an effort will be made to induce congress to snake an appropriation to aseist e sponsible companies. Let the fact be clearly stated that tnanufacture of al? froms shale tnus be, so tat as Is now 'Known, one of the greatest industries tir years to rome. Ulants whicb are understood to he e-: perimentai are perfect-l tegitirmate sow. They are good businesses. Iut evidences of wildcatting ate abundant, and theg will tend to discredit the en tire business and cause it to be looked upor tot a tong time, perhaps, as a gamble, just as wildcat mines and oi9 wells have caused many Vpeple with money teo invest to view ?ta ottc feopositione with suspicies.
