eight hour ride to Llrdau, which Is on
the Lake of Constnncc. and no food or
water In that time. Rat still I did not
mind It much. At Llndau they drilled
me Into a little house and took nwny
nil the addresses that I bad, and
then marched me over to tho llttlo
boat which crosses the lake.
As I started up the gangway tho last

was what I had decided I wanted most

Back In the States.
After I arrived at Rorschach I was
taken to a largo hall, whoru I re
mained over night Thcro were thrco
American lings on the walls, the first
I had seen In n long time. I certainly
did a fine job of sleeping thnt night.
I think I slept twice as fast to mako
up for lost time.
In the morning I had arcgular ban
quet for breakfast eggs, coffee, bread
and a small glass of wine. 'Even now,
although I never pass up a meal, thnt
breakfast is still easy to taste, and I
sometimes wish I could enjoy another
meal as much. But I guess I never
shall have one that goes as good.
After breakfast they took me out on
the steps of the hall and photographed
me, after which I went to the railway
station, with n young mob nt my heels.
It reminded me a bit of Germany It
was so different. Instead of bricks
and bayonet Jabs, the .mob gave mo
cigarettes nnd chocolate and sand
wiches. They also handed mo ques
tionsenough to keep mo busy an
swering to this day If I could.
I got on the train to Zurich, and at
every stop on the way there were moro
presents and more cameras and moro
questions. At St. Gallon they had
cards ready for me to write on, and
then they were going to send them to
anybody I wished. The station at
Zurich was packed with people, and I
began to think I was n star for sure.
Francis B. Keene, the American con
sul general at Zurich, and his assist'
ant, were there to meet me. Wo
walked a tew blocks to his office, nnd
all the way tho cameras were clicking
and the chocolates and cigarettes pil
ing up until I felt like Santa Cluus on
Pecenlber 21th. After a little talk
with Mr. Kceno, he took mo to the
Stussehof hotel, where my wounds
wero dressed nnjl believe me, they
The Swiss certain treated mo well.
Every time I came out on the streets
they followed inv around, and they
used to give me money. But the money
might just us welt have been leather

ever I wanted to buy anything the
shopkeeper would make mo a present
I also visited the Hotel Baur au Lac,

ho felt ashamed afterward.
I do not think ho got In had for. It,
though, for afterward Mr. nnd Mrs.
McCormlck each gnvo him u valuable

the dinner Mrs. McCormlck made it llt
tlo patriotic speech, tit which sho said
that tho Huns would never trample on
tho United States ling, and some other
things that made all tho Americans
thero very proud, especially Mr. Keene
and myself. So you see I was having
a great time.
But I was having n llttlo trouble, all

it was not "good morning" thnt 1

they were not In squads and had no

But Mr. Keene did not llko it. 1
guess, for he called mo to his office
one morning and bawled mo nut for n
while, nnd I promised to bo good.
"You're supposed to bo neutral' he
said. And I said, "Yes, and when I
was torpedoed aud tnken prisoner, I
wns supposed to bo neutral, too." But
I said I would not look for trouble any
more, nnd started back to the hotel.
But no sooner was I underway than
a Hun private camo nlong nnd began
to laugh at me. My hnnds Itched
again, and I could not help but slam
him n few. Wo went round nnd round
for a while, and then tho Hun re
versed and went down Instead. Mr.
Keeno saw us, or heard about It, so he
told me I had better go to Berne.
So off I went, with my passport But
tho same thing happened In Berne. I
tried very hard, but I Just could not
keep my hands off tho Germans. So I
guess everybody thought It was a good
