Few men serving with the colors have had such remarkable escapes from death as has William Clark, a -marine fireman belonging to Bootle. Clark not only went through the South African War unscathed, but was serving as fireman aboard the Titanic and the Empress of Ireland when these liners met their doom, escaping unhurt on both occasions. He has now rejoined the Army. Fritz Kreisler, the famous Austrian violinist, was severely wounded before Lemberg while trying to escape from an attack by several Cossack sotnias. Kreisier's regiment was almost entirely destroyed, and the few men not killed were severely wounded. The violinist was shot in the right arm, and the doctors are unable to tell whether ho will ever be able to play again.
