reputation, seem, as the West-
minster Geuuttt remarks, to re
move the German people out

Its Arrow streets and garden

became necessary, at great in
convenience, to transfer the
University to Jena, The swam-
py soil bred fevers, and students
were frequently compelled to
return home with constitution
impaired. The Reformers
themselves owed such health as
they enjoyed to occasional jour-
leys into the drier and more
salubrious air of the Thuringian

first six months of 1915 by an
epidemic of typhus. The infor-
mation on winch the report is
based has been collected from
prisoners of war repatriated,
and especially from Major':
Priestley. Captain Vidal, and
In the early Stages of the war
the camp was very full. 1 he
British prisoners numbered Le
tween 700 and 80.0. There was
a much larger number of French
and Belgians, but the Russians
greatly preponderated over nil
the others. A population of
16.000 was confined in an area

under the most horrible condi
t'ons. typhus was latent among
the Russians, ami every British
prisoner Was compelled to have
one French and one Russian
prisoner to share his mattress
with him. There seems little
doubl that the Germans desired
a wholesale massacre of these
unfortunates Pfrsonal leanli
ness was Impossible, as only
one cupful of soft soap was is
sued at intervals of many weeks
ton roomful containing'atleast
120. The result was an out
break of typhus, whi'-h is a ver
min-borne disease. The Ger
man military and medical staff
I fled from the camp at the first
outbreak. The medical arrange
merits were under the charge of
a scoundrel named Dr. Asehen
bad,, who entered the hospital
only once, wearing a complete
suit of protective clothing, and
muttering "English swine!" It
is the duty of every British sub
jeet to read this awful report jn
full, and we are glad to learn
from Lord R. Cecil that steps
will be taken to lav it before
neutral Powers. The ugliest

doctors is beyond praise
