Hyde, tired of the ex citement, ordered the four men to lie down and went to sleep. While the officer slept the two sol diers from Camp Upton slipped out of the room, opened a window and ran into town after the police. Two policemen and a sergeant responded. Outside the house they found the chauffeur of Lieut. Hyde's car, Mi "a Turner of No. 153 East 53 rd street. They arrested him and went on toward the house. . Lieut. Hyde drew his revolver as the policemen entered. Instead of firing it, he meekly held out his hands Then the cauffeur drove the whole party to the Greenwich police sta' tion. There Lieut. Hyde was aMe to give iis address, but the policemen found him hard to handle. Dr. Albert F Hanlon was called and gave the Lieu tenant something to quiet his nerves the Lieutenant was clearly insane. The chauffeur was ordered to drive the confectioner and his kidnapped compaions back to New York. They reached the city about 3 p. m. yester day. Beissner found his family in wild alarm. At the Marine Corps Re cruiting Bureau the commandant was on the point of reporting the sergeant as a deserter. The Greenwich police notified Wal ter L.

At Camp Upton associates who thought a great deal of him had been worried for a week over his condi tion. "He has 'been working tinder tre mendous presure lately, and I have all along feared he would break down," Mrs. Hyde said. When Lieut. Hyde asked Wednes day for two days' leave, his associates at camp rejoiced. They hoped the rest would avert the breakdown that was obviously coming. At Camp Up ton last night it was said Lieut. Hyde was a hard worker and a splendid fel low, liked by all who came in contact with him. His attention to duty and his desire to get ahead led him to ap ply himself at long hours and brought him to. the nervous tension that nad been generally marked last week. The Headquarters Company was much affected over the reports from Greenwich. The eyes of Capt. Thatch er, the Adjutant, filled with tears when he talked to a newspaper man about the case. The Camp Upton privates who were nicked up in New York by Lieut. Hyde and carried with Beissner nd the Marine Corps Sergeant were Frank H. Pleuss and William D. At chon, both of the 360th Infantry.

"Head the atorv of the Cassin " he said, "which, though struck by a tor pedo and seriously crippled, refused to return to port as long as there ap peared to be a chance of engaging the submarine. The whole country was thrilled by the account of the exploit of the Fanning and the Nicholson in destroying a. German submarine and capturing its entire crew. The Brit ish admiral in commending officers and men said: The whole affair re flects credit on the discipline and training of the United States' flotilla.' "The first officer lost in the present conflict, Lieut. Clarence C Thomas, after the Vacuum waa sunk, cheered his freezing men as they were tossed about in an open iboat for from land, and he at last perished from cold and exposure. After the Jacob Jones was sunk Lieut. S. F.

AUGUST KENN DERIDED ENTR OF U. S. IN WAR New -York, Fob. 1 The govern ment placed on the stand here today in the trial of August Hennig, charg ed with tampering with the gyroscope attachment of torpoes Charles R. Har rigan, 19 years old, who testified that Hennig had expressed the opinion that "Germany will win the war" and that "the American people made monkeys of themselves in entering the war against the kaiser." His testi mony was intended to prove Hennig's motive in tampering with the torpedo steering device. Harrigan told of obtaining em ployment last November at the mu sition works of E. W. Bliss & Co. in Brooklyn, where Hennig was fore man. Hennig, subsequently engaged him in conversation about the war, Harrigan said. "I understand you just came from Germany," the witness testified that Hennig asked him. " 'What about the submarines? T understand the Germans are building one a day." "No," the witness said he replied, "they're building only about one a week in Wilhelmuhaven." Hennig insisted that the witness was mistaken, the latter declared, and then turnedto the subject of the Ger man army and wha,t it was accom plishing, declaring the newspapers were printing "lies" about Allied suc cesses in the west. "The American soldier is a poor fighter," Harrigan said Hennig de clared. "If those dudes with white collars and brown shoes ever reach the other side they will get the beat ing of their lives."

SURPRISES WHOLE FAMILY She had worked, loved and was happy in doing for her children, and when she started to break down they were frantic, were willing to do al most anything to make her last years happy and free from worry and ill ness. Nothing they did seemed to help; doctors, medicines or rest gave no results. Finally, when all were about desperate with worry a neighbor in duced them to try Phosphated Iron. It had worked such wonders with her old folks. Ready to grasp at any help they got a supply and the way their mother improved from the start was almost too good to believe. It sure was a happy and reunited family and you can bet they are all boosting Phosphated Iron to the limit. Doctors the world over will tell you what Phospates and Iron will build up and store strength and energy against old age and nervous break downs. One of. our leading physicians says, "The results I have obtained with Phosphated Iron have been great in cases of old people, where it was necessary to build up strength, revive bodily functions, give them life, renewed youth and' health." There must be something to it. Doctors and druggists all tell , the same story of success.

When seen at The Stratfleld, Mar garet Graham, who is now employed there as a n maid, said: "Mrs. Chap man introduced me to William Ritch, her chauffeur, as her attorney and that man always posed to me as being the woman's lawyer. The first time she asked me for any money she threw her arms about me and said, 'Dearest Margaret, let me have $30 immediately; my checks have not come through and when I get my money I will pay you back double. I'm going to make you a rich girl, dress you in silks and satins and in troduce you to society.' "These Joans continued for some time until I accompanied the woman i to New York with Rich.

Fred Freyler, when seen at the Fairfield today, said: "Of course, the only way in which I know the woman is through her having nearly at! her meals in my restaurant, and spend ing considerable money on lavish en tertainments for 'arge parties of friends.

UN ASSERTS CRISIS EN STRIKE NACE IS OVE (Continued from Page 1.) and the strike appears consequently to have been orphaned, so far as these tTOft authoritative rdies are con cerned. The part played by Philipp ; Scheidemann, Frieoricn ijaert ana Herr Braun, Socialist leaders, is ex plained on the gorund that they are anxious to prevent the strike from re sulting in disorganization and rioting. While the party as such endorses the political demands regarding domestic affairs which were made by the strik ers, it is generally believed that it definitely disapproves the present strike as an instrument for forcing the government to meet these de mands. The Tageblatt warns Scheidemann and Ebert against playing Trotzky's game, and appeals to the radical leaders to bring the outbreak to a conciliatory conclusion, on account of the effect abroad and for the sake of the future prospects for the internal reforms championed by the reich j.stag majority parties. The official bulletin or tne jsanonai Liberty party declares that the Ber lin strike leaders are playing into Trotzky's hands. Most of the news papers of the reichstag majority par ties continue their criticism of the Socialists. The Germania says that by associating themselves with the strike both sections of the party have displayed very bad tactics, which might well have consequences incon venient to themselves. The Frei sinnige Zeitung says, the progressive people's party will have nothing to do with the latest acts of the Social Democrats, on whom it throws full responsibility for all consequences ol the strike. The Kreuz Zeitung of Berlin prints an abusive article regarding the strik ers who, it says, are behaving as if on a holiday.
