"It was iivTuT"To jseo tho men when
vre got back to tho barracks. Some of
tho boys from tho Gcorglc, not much
over twelve years old, wcro nliuost
crazy, but oven tho older men wero
crying, many of them. It was nothing
but torture all the time. They opened
all tho windows nnd doors In the bar
racks, and then we could not heat tho
room with our bodies. When we start
ed to move around, to keep warm, they
fired a few shots nt us. I do not
know whether they lilt anyone or not;
we had got so that we did not pay any
attention to things like that. But it
stopped ns, and wo had to stand still.
Tho Huns thought we would tako tho
rifles from the sentries and uso them,
I sever saw a yellower bunch of
people in my life. I do not mean peo
ple. I wish I could publish what I
Wo had stoves In tho barracks, but
no coal or wood to burn. Thcro wero
many boxes piled up there, but they
belonged to the Germans. Wo would
have burned them If wo could, but
tho Germans made us carry them
across the road. They weighed about
ISO pounds apiece, and wo were so
weak thnt It was all two men could do.
to budge them. And wo had to carry
them; they would not let us roll them.
We were so cold nnd hungry thnt even
that exercise did not warm us.
About 2:30 the whistle blew again,
and the Huns picked out a few men
and took them down the road. Wo
could not figure out why, but they
came back about three o'clock, all of
them with bread in their arms. They
wero chewing away on it when they
had a chance. Whenever the sentries
wero not looking they would blto at It
like a fish going after a worm. Each
man carried five loaves.
When they got In tho barracks tho
sentries mado them put the bread
down on tho floor, and then, with
their bayonets, the sentries cut each
loaf once down the center lengthwise
and four times across, which meant
ten men to a loaf about the size of an
ordinary ten-cent loaf in this country
now. They gave each of us a piece
a little larger than a safety-match
They Tied Me, Face to tho Fence.,
"Tho bread was hard and dark, nnd
I really think they mado it fronj trees.
It bad Just exactly the same smell
that tho dirt around trees has.
We filed past the sentries single fllo
to get our ration of this mud, and
there was no chance of getting in line
twice, for we had to kicp on filing
until wo wero out In the road, and
stand there in tho snow to oat it. Wo
could not go back In tho burrocks un

kaiser's birthday, Lincoln's, 'May day,
or nny Other time.
This cabbago soup was n great Idea.
Wo called it shadow soup, because tho
boys ctalmcd they mado It by hanging
n cablmgo over n barrel of water nnd
letting tho shadow fall un thu water.
Wo pretended, top, that IC you found

I never saw anybody get more than

Wo tried to go to sleep thnt night,
but thcro wcro so -uiuuy sentries
around us nnd those of Us who wero
not sick wero wounded that I do not
think n inniwof us really slept. After
n while 1 asked u sentry If 1 could go
outside for n minute, but for some rea
son he would not let me. I hud dif
ferent Ideas about It, so I stood
around near 'the door, nnd "when ha
turned his back out I went nnd around
tho corner of tho barracks.
But ono of tho sentries there saw
mo nnd blow his whistle, .and a guard
of eight came up from somewliero and
grabbed me. I tried to explain, but It
was no use, because every time I snld
a word it meant another swat over
tho car, so finally I gnve it up.
Then they drAled ins across th
roait to the officers' quarters. There
wero threo ofllcers there, and each of
them asked me questions about all
kinds of things, but never once men
tioned my running out of tho bar
racks. Then they gnvo tho sentries
somo commands, and four or tho sen
tries took mo out nnd over to tho
barbed wlro fence. Thcro they tied
me, face to tho fence, arms over my
head, and hands nnd feet lashed to
tho wire, and with n ropu around my
wnlst, too. I thought, then, that my
hunch -had como true, and that I
would bo crucified, llko Murray and
They posted a senior there in addi
tion to tho regular guards, and every
time ho walked past mo ho would kick

Ono timo ho kicked mo so linrd
that a prong of tho barbed wlro
gashed me over the left eye tho only
ono I can sea with uud when tho
blood ran Into my eyo It blinded me.
I thought both eyes wcro gono then,
and I hoped they would shoot me. It
seemed to me thnt IJiad got my ahnro
by this tlnio without losing tho other
eye, and if it was gone, I wanted to
I could not put up my hand to feel
where tho prong had Jabbed me, and
it kept on bleeding and smarting. I
had on practically no clothing, you re
member. Tho wounds In my thigh had
opened, and it was bitter cold nnd
windy. So you can picture to your
self how gay and en re free I was.
When I had been thcro for nn hour
and a half they untied me from tho
wire, and I keeled over on my back.
They kicked mo until I hnd to stand
up, but I fell down again, and all tho
kicking In Germany could not havo
brought inc to my feet. I was Just all
In. So they blew their whistles and
the sentries in tin barracks nwakened

All tho time the sentries wero yell
ing, "Gott strafe England I" and
"schwelnhund I" until you would hnvo

their idea was I do not know.

I washed tho pish nnd bnndaged it.
Believe me, I wits glad when I could

German Prison Camps.
A few days nfte-1 had been limbed
to tho barbed wire fence some of tho
Gcrmnn ofllcers came to tho barracks,
and ono of them who spoke very good
English suld: "All of tho neutrals who
wcro on unarmed ships step out."
Only a few stepped out.
Then ho called for nil tho neutrals,
and tho Danes, Swedes, Norwegians,
Brazilians and Spaniards stepped out.
But when I did, ho said, "No, not
Americans. Americans nro not neu
tral. America supplies our enemies
with food and ammunition." Ho raised
his fist, nnd I thought ho was going to
hit me, but instead ho gave me a
shove that caused me to fall nnd get
a little cut on tho head. Then the
sentries pushed mo over with tho
British and the French.
After that they took tho Norwegi
ans, Swedes and Danes to separnto
barracks, and gavo them clothes und
beds and tho samo rations as tho Ger
man soldiers. When I saw this I
mado a .kick jml aaia Im-oh a neutral,
fooTand ought to tet the samo treat
ment as tho Scandinavians. They took
tuo to tho ofllceru again, kicked mo
nbout nnd sworo nt me, nnd tho only
nnswor I got" was thnt America would
suffer for nil sho had done for tho al
lies. Then I wns'sonl buck to tho bar
"Tho next day nt nbout ono o'clock
they took us from tlm barracks nnd
drilled us through the swamps. Tho
men began to full ono by one, somo
crying or swearing, but most of them
going nlong without u word. Those
who went down wero smashed In tho
hend with rifle butts or bells.
Finally wo arrived at n llttlo rail

tho curs wero nil smashed, and every
thing about tho cars wan dirty.
Finally the train stopped nt'nitown
named Alt-Dninm. nnd there was n
mob of women nnd children around,
as usual, ready for us with bricks and
spit. They stoned us through tho car
windows, nnd laughed nnd Jeered nt
us, but by this time we wuro so used
to It thnt wo did not mind much. Only,
ircty now and then somo fellow
would get all ho could stand, and
either talk back or mako a pass at
somebody. Then ho' would get Ida
cither a bayonet through tho arm or
leg, or a crash on tho head with a gun
After on eighteen hour ride, with
out food or drink, wo arrived at Ncu

Then, after n while, wo know our now

could bco them, wo could hear tho
racket they made. Somehow a Ger
man cannot do anything shlpshnpti

hnd finished counting us, shivering
llko leaves. At last they placed us In
