BY CAIT. K. X. IUKSBTT, Coramlsnloner Id crlin for the British Ked Cro Society. NISir, Servia, April S. Here is the picture of an Austrian prisoners' camp. This is not a hos pital, remember, but simply an area where 759 Austrians have been collected. Nevertheless disease have fallen like a blight upon the camp. At an earlier date one doctor was in charge of this camp, but he is now struck down by typhus. Typhus, dysentery, smallpox, diphtheria, have swept over the place. Last week only 29 men out of 750 could stand on their feet They lie in utter wretchedness. The bulk of the sick men are stretched sut on the muddy ground. Their clothes are foul and alive with the vermin which spread the deadly typhus. The silence of the camp is broken only by sighs and groans, bnt when a stranger comes In sight the sick raise themselves on their elbows. If they can. and cry pitifully, "For the lo e of God, give us water." Dead and Dying Lie In Ileapn. A recent visitor noticed a number e recumbent forms covered with great coats and found, on removing these, that five out of the number were al ready dead and had been dead for sev eral days. There was nobody to re move the corpses. Here and there some poor wretch crawled on his hands and knees to fetch a cup of water to a pros trate comrade. This was all the "at tendance" which was visible, and the shocking condition oft the men and the ground on which they He can be Im agined. Can anyone be surprised to learn that some 60 men die in this camp every day? Tank 'Wan Too Great. Here is an English hospital which has tried to do the impossible and failed. Six doctors and II orderlies they had no nurses took over the control of some 1S00 sick and wounded. They have fought a gallant fight against terrific odds, but typhus has beaten them. At this moment two orderlies are dead, three have been invalided home, and three are now laid low by typhus: two doctors are suffering from the same disease and one has gone home. Three doctors and three orderlies are all that remain on the active list, and the work of the hospital has -had" perforce to be temporarily abandoned. What could six doctors do with ISM men? Worse still are the conditions under which the Servian doctors have labored. The poor Austrian prisoners, the only assistants the doctors have, there are no Servian nurses, do their best, but they are not trained orderlies. Take a large Servian hospital which I know. It is practically impossible to go near it: so overpowering Is the stench in the street outside that nobody who is not compelled to approach the building can bear to be In its vicinity. Details of the Interior cannot well be printed, but may be conjectured when one mentions that foul rags and dress ings and even portions of amputated limbs are thrown over a wall and left to the attention of erows an magpies and. parish dogs. Similar refuse has been thrown into the river. Sixty-three Doctor Die. Since the announcement of the war S3 Servian doctors haie died In the course of their unequal struggle with disease. One young man of St years, a medical student, lias died within a stone's throw of my window. Two British nurses volunteered to nurse him. but it was too late. Before their arrival, he was nursed by nobody except a little Servian maidservant, and last Friday night he escaped in delirium there was nobody to look after him and was later found lying on the muddy road In the bitter cold. So terrible have been the results of this overcrowding that it seems doubt ful whether In the long run more lives may not be last than gained 1 r attempt ing the impossible. Had hospitals now containing 30 men refused admission to more than 100 and taken every pre caution that experience and science furnished against dirt and vermin and polluted air. the results actually achieved by medical effort might have been better. But what of the 209 men excluded? No man, doctor or layman, can leave a helpless soldier lying in the street.

On the crest of a hill overlooking a broad valley, 15 acres of flat land have been enclosed by a wooden fence seven feet high, surmounted by two lines of barbed wire. The road on one side is a main highway. Peasant carts, wagons, motorcars and pedestrians pass by un troubled by the fact that behind these boards are more than WOO men of va rious races and tongues, prisoners of war. It is one of the German prison camps, where English. French. Russians, Belgians and Tnrcoa are detained. The Quarantine Pen. I was escorted through the camp by an officer. -This Is the quarantine pen, he announced to me, as soon as we had entered. "We keep all newly arrived prisoners here for a period of four weeks, to make sure that they have no diseases. There are S00 here now." Most of the prisoners in this "pen" were civilians. Belgians, considered unruly or insubordinate, who had been removed from Belgium, were interned promiscuously with the soldiers. I noticed that they were all of the arms bearing age. The "pen" itself covered about an acre and a half of ground. It is separated from the adjoining pen by barbed wire about 4 feet high, loosely strung, and bounded on all sides by a path eight feet broad. The camp is divided into 10 of these "pens." Each contains four long, low buildings, built of stained pine boards, and standing on a brick foundation. Each building accommodate 250 men and is heated by 10 coke stoves, lighted by electricity, and ventilated by win dows. The sleeping mattresses are of unbleached ducking, filled with "ex celsior" or wood shavings two feet thick, and placed on the floor. Blanket! Are Scarce. The blankets seemed rather scanty, and most of the men. I was told, used their great coats as coverlets. In the center of the room are oblong tables at which 12 men can sit comfortably for meals and games. Outbuildings, con taining kitchen, stores, lavatories, etc are also provided, as is a hospital building for light cases. All the build ings are new and specially constructed for housing prisoners. After a cursory inspection, as the men were out of their quarters at the time, we passed to the adjoining pen. In all respects identical with the first, the buildings were more interesting, as they were full of prisoners, chiefly French, though with a sprinkling of Belgians, and a few "black" troops. I spoke with several of the men. Man had been here for fosr or five months, but they all were in good spirits and optimistic. They asked me whether the Russians were in Berlin, and said they daily expected to hear the boom of frfiendly guns Dlaripllne 1m Good. "All the dBscipttne is maintained by their own noacomraisafansd officers." my guide remarked. XiM3r have full charge, tso foil resaniisWHtfi: If any thing g&es wrong, a Tbofcout tenches a bell, add then of course we take action." He thereupon pointed to the hatteries of artillery posted on ele vated platforms at various points of vantage. I also saw lookout towers in which sentries were stationed, who commanded a clear view of each pen. By the time we had reached the sixth pen we found the men getting their noon-day meal. The food is prepared and cooked by the prisoners. The chief meal of the day is at noon, and -consists of a big tin bowl of ma and potato soup and a piece- of Hack bread. I tasted the soua and . tt seemed very palatable. For breakfast I was told the prisoners receive coffee with sugar and bread: and in the evening bread with sometimes potatoes or other vegetables. In all one pound of bread a day for each man. Each Pen Hax a Store. Each pen has a "store." which Is open at stated hours. A printed price list of the articles sold hangs in front of the booth. Soap, brushes, shirts, towels. German dictionaries. and French-English German grammars are the chief items. No food, chocolate, or tobacco is sold, but the purchase of German grammars Is encouraged, and the prices charged are ridiculously low. I believe 6 cents. "You see, we want the English and French to learn our language, to under stand ns better," my escort remarked to me. In one of the buildings I came upon a group of British soldiers. Guardsmen, tall, splendid fellows, far excelling In the physique and bearing of all the other prisoners. Except that they were unshaven I believe they are not al lowed to shave oftener than once a fortnight they seemed remarkably fit. and only complained that it was hard to pass the time, bat otherwise they were well treated. Questioned about their food, they said it was good, but one man spoke up. "We want more bread." I was informed that the allow an e was the same as that of the Ger man soldiers QMSteHk No HMaiiiF Pain No More Dread of the Dental Chair By the New Method of Ientistry -tee can ex tract, fill, or crown your teeth absolutely without the least particle of pain No co caine or any of Its derivatives used In any form.

I have been forced to the conclusion that most people who complain of stomach trouble possess stomachs that are absolutely healthy and normal.

The account is to the following effect: "The Austrian aeroplane succeeded in mounting above its adversaries and dropped a bomb which struck one of the Rusaiap aeroplanes. The Russian machine plunged 1500 yards ta earth. The atmospheric disturbance caused by the fall of the aeroplane upset the other two Russian machines, causing them both to whirl down to earth.

"While some of the boats were still on their davits." the statement declares, -the submarine flreir a torpedo at the Palaba at short range.
