London.—"When they took us pris oners they held revolvers to our heads and made us give them our shoes, but when the armistice came and we were set free a socialist leader made a speech to us, saying; brothers.'

Prisoners Exhibited. The Americans were eventually taken to Friedrichsfeldt, and no op portunity was missed to show the American prisoners to the populace, for they were among the earliest to be taken. These Americans were taken to a camp where there were prisoners from all the other alfied countries, and though there afterward seemed to he an attempt to single out Ameri cans for better treatment, according prisonment. parcels began to arrive they got con Until their own siderahle fond from the generous Brit ish and other allied compatriots. More than 30 were detailed to work In coal and salt mines, and one man, Corporal Lucien, who, it was said, re fused to work in a mine when ordered to do so, was marched off to the pit head and given another chance to de cide what he would do by the two Prussian guards who had him In charge. When he again stoutly re fused, saying he was not required, as an under officer, to do so, he was thrown down the shaft and killed. The burial was witnessed, his com rades said, by a British sailor, who told about It on the following day. Eventually the Americans were taken to the prison camp at Opladen. For their work they got six cents a day. "—— Armistice Starts Riot. On November 9 they learned of the armistice. On that day riots were pre cipitated In the town In which the Americans were stationed, and ma rines had been hurried up to quell the disorders. On November 11 word came that the armistice had been signed and that all the prisoners were now free. It was arranged shortly afterward that they were to be sent to Holland for transportation to England with English prisoners. The men were per mitted to go through the town at will, and the people, as well as their for mer guards, were anxious to frater nize, but got short shrift from the re leased men. A German who styled himself as an international Socialist, went to the camp to tell the prisoners how glad he was that the war was over. "We are all brothers now," he said with much gusto, but this was too much to swallow after months of hard work, poor food and overbearing treatment, and one of the prisoners greeted this exclamation with boos and groans. The Socialist departed as disconso late as did Sir Roger Casement when he ineffectually tried to curry the favor of Irish prisoners in other camps. An uneventful trip to Holland en sued, and then the men were taken in charge by the British Red Cross and went to Hull along with British Tom mies who had been in the camp with them. Gives Three Sons to Service. Newnan, Ga.—A. D. Harris of New nan has given three sons to his coun try's fight for freedom, all of whom volunteered early in the war. Alvin H. Harris, Marine corps, was killed in action at Bouresches, and his cour age was warmly praised by his su perior officers. Marvin D. Harris was accidentally killed during a storm. William D. Harris, Marine corps, was severely wounded at Chateau-Thlerry. LIBRARY GETS NUGGET Caused Stampede to Alder Gulch, Mont, May 21, 1862.

Ths organization is the Motor Transport Corps, which, by the way, has not been exactly idle for many months, Before the armistice was signed, the Motor Transport Corps had more or less of a one-way job. It received new motor transportation from the States at the base ports, assembled it, oiled up its wheels and shipped it up front. It also operated service trucks and automobiles in practically every section of France in the S. O. S., in addition to its activities in the First, Second and Third Armies. Now it is operating, and will con- j tinue to operate, in both directions, | because it has to keep things moving j to the front until the last American | soldier clears out of France, and also | has to keep things moving rearward i in order to see that these same sol-| d ers are safely embarked for the ] States. ' The Motor Transport Corps has re-; ceived assembled and placed in opera -1 tion in France in the neighborhood of ; 80,000 vehicles of all kinds. I Four-fifths of all the supplies and material that have come over to France, aside from material directly handled by motor transportation, has been taken from ships at base ports, loaded on trains and then taken from to / lnal destination in ail parts of the extreme front on motor trucks. Not only have the Motor Transport men made possible the unloading of vessels, and the loading and unload ing of all trains in France, but they gÄiKSiSS Sää loaded with freight and gone up for ward filled to capacity, and it has been an off week to the Motor Trans port Corps when they have not ear r j e d several hundred tons from the Atlantis seaboard right across France, Originally in Q.

Probably there is no piece of ap paratus in France today that has been more heartily cursed when it has fail ed to appear, and that has been non chalantly accepted as part of the gen eral scheme of things when it did ap pear, as the motor truck. The first unit of motor transporta tion, consisting of four companies, ar rive din France in May, 1917. Motor transportation then was a part (and a very small part) of the quartermaster corps, and remained part of the quar termasetr corps as the Motor Trans port Service of the Corps until the middle of August, 1918, when a gen eraI ord , e r was issued fr , om Washing ton, making it a corps by itself, Motor transport organizations have been established at every base port in France as rapidly as the base ports themselves were organized and are well represented in England and Italy, Had the war lasted a little longer the M. T. C. would have been larger in the A. E. F. than both the regular army and the national guard corn bined before we declared war a gams t Germany.
