loads of household goods, with in old
woman and a baby sitting on the pile
and the younger and stronger mem
bers of the family plodding along in
the mud before or alongside the two
oxen. As we turned down the road,
the perplexed peasants turned tho ox
en and he.tded for a roadside ditch.
The unusual sight of an automobile
seemed to frenzy them. A woman and
a man stuck the oxen with sticks. The
wheels went down with a crash and
everybody screamed. The old woman
held up the baby in her arms. Tho
body of the wagon settled down into
tho ditch, on its side, (iently tho old
woman and tho baby slid off into tho
mud. Ucsiitc the road was a camp of

But now, it was a battlefield. A can

other cannon further away roared. The
British cannon behind us ro.ired. They
were all ally cannon. And then came
a different sound, it was a s.iriek that
