The Hanover Courier prints a vivid ao

we proceeded auccessfully toward Liege.
On the morning of August , a detach

Of Llppe was commander, succeeded In

exact spot where we were, the prince

with his aword to the approaching col

breadth away from him on top of our
flag, an order to raise the flag so we
would be reoognlaed.
"I raised the flag and waved It In a
circle, which at onco drew an extra
strong hall of bullets from the enemy.

"That stories of Oerman atrocities are
not one whit exaggerated may be gath
ered from the story told me by a ser
geant who waa wounded In the action
near Mona a week ago. As he lay help,
lese on the ground and the German In
fantry, swept by he could hear, from the
Imploring crloa of the wounded In his
front, that they were being ruthlessly
put to death by their foea.
"Closing his eyea and simulating
death, the wounded sergeant lay per
fectly still. As the Germans passed him
he received a violent blow on the chest
from the butt end of a rifle, which broke
one of hie ribs. He bore the pain un
flinchingly and never moved a muscle.
Another Prussian stabbed a wounded
man with hla bayonet aa be went past.
"The sergeant's ordeal was a terrible
one and he expected every moment to be
hla last. Ultimately the German advance
was broken and their Infantry came roll

The wounded sergeant was picked by
British stretcher bearers and conveyed
to the base hospital, where he Is now fast
the whole thing," and were all eager for
a brush at the enemy.
