Claude Druge, Barre Tailor, Going to
Fight for French Tri-Color In Re
sponse to Appeal to Reserv
' ists Others May Go.
There is reason to believe that a con
siderable following of men between the
military age limits in Barre and Barre
Town may be liable to service in the
great European strife, but the first man
to receive a positive call to the colors
is Claudn Druge, a tailor whose shop is
on the second floor of the L. M. AveriB
building. Since President Poineare's uc-
famous declaration 01 rranc.es siai- o'
the present controversy was pul a
in America, Mr. Druge has been qii. ,.
awaiting the summons. In came tilis
morning from the consul-general's of
fice on Bridge street, New York. The
call is written in French and contains a
moving appeal to all Frenchmen to rally
around the tri-color.
As he talked to a reporter this fore
noon, Mr. Druge busied himself in pack
ing his belongings into a small port
manteau which he will take to New
York. His bench and other tailoring
accessories he will store in Barre for the
time-being. The -tailor man let it be
known that he means business and that
all the customers in the world cannot
keep him from fighting for his country
if his services are needed. Druge saw
three years of military service in a pro
vincial regiment organized near Bordeaux.
Afterwards he was placed on the reserve
list and allowed to depart for America.
By virtue of his service and the knowl
edge of tactics gained in the three years
he is in the third class of reservists and
therefore likely to see some of the fight
ing. Either to-night or to-morrow Mr.
Druge Will leave for New York to pre

'. Prior to the attack on Liege, Gen. Von Emmich, commanding

suggesting that prudence would show it to be the duty of the
Belgian people to accede to this, in order to avoid the horrors of

curred.! His stone stood within the cir-
le of the shed derrick boom and as
the boom swung over his head, the stone
toppled out of its sling and struck the
man on the head. It was a glancing
blow and the head was not badly .
crushed. The shock threw him to the
ground. He gave one cry, and by the
time other workmen arrived, life JiaJ
gone, it is believed. Immediately the
