sistant t f. Osborne, who haa been In
charge of the Red Cross detachment In

"The Herman' transport for the wounded
Is very poor Indeed," raya the writer.
"Kxrept for four light ambulance
wagons, about 2,6)0 wounded were taken
out through Gemboux on Improvised farm
carta, each cart with a little straw, carry
ing about twelve men. We saw one
wounded man taken from bed dressed In
a full kit, with rifle slung, dragged along
on foot to the station l.ere.
"The only accommodations provided
consisted of cattle trucks In which
wooden benches, had been placed. On the
erce left on the floor badly wounded
were placed. The feeding of patients Is
In charge of Herman orderllea and their
total lack of discrimination Is frightful.
"Black bread and H.rman aausage or
fat bacon were provided every day and
if a man was too 111 to eat such fare he
went without. Fresh milk waa lmi osslble
to be obtained, but our nurses managed
to eecure condensed milk and weak cof
fee for a few of the gravest cases.
"We saw several operations In the big
base hospital. The aurgeon washed hJs
hanrfs most carefully, then touched a
cigar which he smoked all the time. The
Instrument were . carefully aterllced by
boiling, then placed on a towel, which
had been used for the Instruments for at
lest twenty operations.
"Anesthetics were seldom given and It
must be said the fortitude of both the
French and Germans waa remarkable."
