"I saw him. He was n major In
clinrge of a Canadian Held ambulance.
When I found him, In tile lingo build

hospital, he was busy superintending
the treatment of women and pitiful lit
tle children who had been gassed by
the Hoches In dellaueo of nil the laws
of humnnlty. There was one little fcl
low howling with terror. lie did not
wish to remain with the military, lie
had only known the German soldier!
V'Well. then tnkc him away, poor
little chap,' said the major, 'Ilrlng him
back three, times a tiny to be dressed.'
"Then thp major and I talked, of the
successful Canadian nttnek and of the
condition of the town when It had been
tnken. I( was not u pretty story. II
was. In fact, a terrible Indictment
against the lioche.
" They starved the civilians. The

show you a field medical cart tlmt we

off. It Is otlo of the piost wonderful
things I have ever seen.'
"Wc went l(i to the transport i,r''
and here we found something like n
Scotch cart with a eloscd-ln top, bear
ing the Itcd Cross on Its Mdes. The
major let down the back llap untl we
saw n series qf drawers, like nn en

pulled one out.
