Nurnberger Anzeiger "Extra- actual size of which is 12 by 8 fhes.
It tells of the decisive victory of the Germans near Metz. Translated roughly,
" Berlin Aug 21. Under the leadership of the Crown Prince of Bavaria, the
troops of all the southern states in battle won a decisive victory between Metz
and the Vosges. The French, with strong reinforcements, entered on the
frontier and were defeated and routed with heavy losses. Many thousands of
prisoners and ammunition were taken from them."
mans are giving more of their atten
tion to fighting than to telling about
It. White paper is scarce andink like
wise. The publishers have no "ads"
and consequently the Nurnberg An
sleger, which ordinarily is an eight
page paper about the size of The
Oregonian, has been reduced.
Germany has not by a long way
called out her reserve army strength,
mmm Mr Tfrpssmatl. Who has two
brothers and five brothers-in-law in
the German army, and who has Just
received a letter from his mother at
Nurnberg, dated August 21.
"Neither the Lanwehr nor the Land
Bturm had been called out up to that
dat-e." said Mr. Kressman. "The Land
wehr would in case of need be called
cut before the Landsurm. and only
after these two organizations had been
exhausted would the men we call vol
unteers be called into play in the
war. The Landwehr takes In the re
nerve trained men not In the active
army who range in age up to 39. The
Landsturm includes the men between
8a and 43 who are army-trained, but
who are not in the active fighting
ranks. Beyond these two great forces
the German War Department could
call for hundreds of thousands of vol
unteersthat is untrained men of all
ages, but none so far has been called
for and Germany has hardly begun to
call upon her reserve trained strength.
"I get this news from my mother
and father direct from Nurnberg. The
letter was dated August 21 and came
through the censors in Just 19 days,
which goes to prove the mails are not
being held up in Germany because of
lack of transportation or some such
thing. From Nurnberg to Portland
in 19 days is a good record. It took
nie 20 days to come In peaceful times
three years ago.
Bnvnrlans Take I.iege.
"My mother writes me that Liege
fell In three days, and that the forts
were stormed by the German Bavarian
troops and not by the Prussians. . She
writes also that every woman In Ger

the sacrifice it means. They all feel
Germany is fighting the war of self
preservation, driven upon them. My
mother has sent seven of her close rel
atives to the ranks and she says other
women feel the same way about it.
Just as evidence of the enthusiasm
In Germany there were ir.0.000 or more
volunteers who offered themselves for
the Kaiser's army in Nurnberg alone
one day. These were not accepted be
cause the Kaiser didn't need them,
anil Nurnberg is a city of about 670.
000. This same spirit is shown through
out Germany, according to my mother.
'The German people are receiving
news of barbaric treatment of the
wuunded Germans in Belgium after the
siene Belgian girls, under the guise
of ministering to the exhausted Ger
man troops, carried water to them as
they passed by. Many of the soldiers
drank It. because they would not drop
out of line to get a drink elsewhere,
and they that drank fell dead In a
few minutes. -
Wounded Declared Tortured.
My mother also writes that the
civilians in Belgium gouged out the
eves and pulled out the tongues of
the wounded Germans, and it was for
this that German officers put such se
vere restrictions on the Belgians and
treated summarily those who carried
arms. It In a way explains the trag
edy at Louvaln.
' "J. Carretti. a large manufacturer

almost every school child, was shot as
a spy because the German authori

to France. Mrs. Carretti, who was ar

was not molested."
Mr. Kressman's father is a large
hoe manufacturer in Nurnberg.

Hitch Comes In Settlement.
Grief abounds in officialdom at the

where the Commissioners sometimes
hold executive sessions there has been
a little family quarrel, which has
caused Mayor Albee to withdraw the
use of his private automobile by the
Up to a few days ago the Mayor fur
nished his private car on the understanding-
that the city furnish a chauf

tion of the depreciation cost This ar
rangement was made by the Council in
place at the r-urchaae of a car by Uw
city. Depreciation on the car was to
be paid when the time came for turn
ing it in as part payment on a new
machine. ' m ' M .
The Council, it is said, carried out its
part of the deal so far as furnishing a
chauffeur and- using the car was con
cerned, but there w's a hitch when It
came to buying the gasoline and pay
ing a depreciation charge. The Mayor
sent in a depreciation charge of Sizou,
the depreciation on his car being fig
ured at over $2000.
There were objections, it is said, and
on top of this somebody in the pur
chasing department slipped a cog and
sent the Mayor a bill for the gasoline
that had been used.
This capped the climax with the
Mayor. Although' nothing of a puollc
nature appeared and no official action
was taken the Mayor pulled the J1200
depreciation bill out of the official
files, consigned It to the waste basket,
transferred the chauffeur to the Police
Department and sent his automobile
home. So now the Council walks when
