GERMANS' TRUE COLORS
SAVAGERY AND TREACHERY. "It is when the story of tho campaign is written that you will sec tho Germans in their true colors of savagery, boastfulness, lying, and blasphemy," writes a Canadian officer serving with tho Allies. "In war we all know excesses occur and mistakes are made. In this campaign the Red Jross waggons are deliberately fired upon, ambulances shelled, doctors and nodical aid marked out for destruction >y the deliberate orders of the German generals in command. Their men are aught to be treacherous, and at the lattle of Mous unhorsed troopers threw p their hands pretending to surrender o us. The moment the British cavalry .ode, up to make them prisoners they picked up their arms and fired. But vou can take my solemn assurance that the Germans "will never forget the lessons they learnt at Mons. Such terrible stories have come from Belgian villages and towns of massacro, outrage, mutilation of women and children, and the murder of women that the French peasants are wisely giving the enemy as wide a berth as possible."
