time It has been definitely established
mat they have committed atrocities on
mony occasions, and they have been
guilty of brutal conduct.

wounded aoldlera have been published In
our newspapers, the following epistle of
a German soldier of the Seventy-fourth
inianiry regiment. Tenth corps, to his
wife, also may be of Interest:

I have been saved for you and for our

though I am still terribly unnerved. Cod
grant that I may e you again soon and
that thla horror may soon be over.
" 'None of us can do any more; human
strength la at an end. I will try to tell
you about It. On the Sth of September the
enemy were reported to be taking up a
position near St. Prix, southeast of Paris.
The Tenth corps, which had made an as
tonishingly rapid advance, was attacked
on Bunday. Sleep slopes led up to the
heights.- which were held In considerable
fcrcc. With our weak detachments of the
Beventy-fourth and Ninety-first regiments
we reached the crest and came under a
terrible artillery fire, that mowed us
down. However, we entered St. Prix.
Hardly had we done so than we were met
with shell fire and a violent fusillade
from the enemv'a Infantry.

HesiTr Fltfhtlng Near Amiens.
IiONDON. Sept. 13. The Amiens cor
respondent of the Times telegraphs that
heavy fighting Is In progress not many
miles southeast of Amiens. He says:
"It Is the beginning of a decisive phase
of the battle of the Alsne. On the Issue
of this fighting depends the continued oc
cupation of French soil by the German
Invaders or of their retreat to strongly
entrenched positions which have been
prepared for them on the Bambre.
"Since the Germans evacuated Amiens
a week ago the town has become an
Important center for French military op
erations. Though the Amiens district Ih
well served with railways. It Is the high
ways that count now, as the railway
bridges for the most part have been
blown, up and not yet repaired.
"On Thursday, laat, French reinforce
ments, under command of General
D'Amade entered Amiena from the west
and after a short stay resumed their
march, proceeding along one of the east
ern roads to a destination which can
only be conjectured.
"The enemy occupied Douny yesterday
morning and seized the railway atatlon
at Soualn, on the line connecting Doual
with Valenciennes. It appears, therefore.
that tha Germans are alive to tha neces
sity of protecting their line of commu
nication to Mons, where I hear headquar
ters of the army haa been established.
Thua the German Una haa been extended
north from Camhrai, which haa been oc
cupied in force.
"On Saturday and Sunday there waa
great military activity In Amiens. The
nervous tension was extraordinary in
expectation of some Important develop
