The Germans swarmed to' the riversid2. Their first party built a pontoon bridge. Tue pontoons, with a heavy freight of dead and wounded, were carriid down stream. The struggle was continued throughout the day, the enemy building bridges and the British demoralising them, until at last the British grew sick of the sight of crowds of shrinking Ger mans rushing to certain doom. At length portion of the enemy's forces managed to effect a crossing at one point. " Then the Allies rushed and bayoneted the Germans Into the river.

He has heard his officer give his brutal orders to spill the blood, of troops like so much water, so long as other troops to follow may wade to the destined goal. This policy has recoiled upon its authors. Even when cap tured the German officers display an amazing lack of camaraderie. They protest violently against sit iing in the same waggon wilh their men.
