When in August, 1915. Lrd Northcliffe gave me my instructions to go into Germany and to remain, if necessary, for a year, he was very specific on the question of prisoners. He told me 'li t BS soon as 1 had got the D nil'Icii' <•, or as much of the Confidence as one can Ret, of the (ierman authorities, it was his y 1 gent w isb that I should find out what was happening to 30, Oi'io Soldiers and 1,000 civilians now 111 captivity. I was instructed to transmit the information to him d possible via Holland, Switzerland, or the United states and, if not possible, to memorize it carefu'ily and bring it with me in person. I found it impos sible to send in writing. On the whole, the task set me was one of the most difficult of this last 10 months' investiga tion, or, indeed, of my previous visits. It was facilitated by the German policy of showing the hat1 d English captives to as many people as possible. Your 30,000 men have been scattered into at least 600 prison camps. In the depleted state of the German Army it is not easy to find efficient guards for so many establishments. Your men are constantly being moved aboutThey are conveyed ostentatious. Iv and,shown at railway stations en route where until recently I hey were allowed to be spat Upon by the public, and were given coffee into which the public were allowed to spit. These are but a few of the slights and abominations heaped upon them. Much of it is quite un printable. Many a night did I lie awake in Berlin cogitating how to get into touch with some of these men. f learned something on a previous visit in 1914, when I saw the English prisoners at— At that time it was impossible to get into conversation with them. They were efficientl) and continually guarded by comparatively active soldiers. THE FIRST PRISONER MET On this OCCassion I came ai ross my first English prisonei quite by accident, and, as so of ten happens in life, difficult p r o blems keltic themselves auto matically. In nothing that I u rite shall I give an) indication of the whereab uts of the 60 prisoners with whom I conveis ed privately, but there can be no harm in my mentioning the whereabouts M mv public visit which took place in one of the regular neutral "Cook's tours" of the prisoners in Germany. The strain of my work in so suspicious a place as Berlin ; the constant canrequired to guard one's expressions and theanx iety as to whether one was !>'• nig watched or not gets on the nerves sometimes, and one Sunday 1 determined to take a day off and go into the country with another neutral friend. There, by accident 1 came across my first private specimen of Tummy in < let may. VVe were looking about for a decent Gasthaus in which to get something to eat when we saw a notie high up in large type on a wall outside an old farmhouse building, which read : — Jcdcv Yerhehr Jer Zivilberol kerung mii den Kriegs?efangtnen isi STRBNG VBRBOTBN. Anv intercourse of the civil population with the prisoners of war is strictly forbidden. Thete notes, which threaten the civilian population with heavy penalties if they exchange any words with the prisoners, are familiar ail over Germany, but 1 did riot expect to find them in that small town. M) neutral friend .thought it would make a nice photograph if I would stand under the notice. ENGLISH IN RUSSIAN GARB As I did so a Russian came out of the bam and said, in rather bad German, "Going to have your photograph taken ?" f replied, in German. "Yes." He heard me speaking Eng. lish to my friend,and then,look. ing up and down the street each way to see if we were being watched, he addressed me in English with a strong Cockney accent. '.You speak English then ?" I said, '1 am English," he replied. "I'm an English prisoner." •' Then what are you doing in a Russian uniform ?" "It is the only thing I could i^et when my own clothes Wore out." Keeping a careful eye up and down the street, he told us his story. He was one of the old Expeditionary Force was taken at Mons with five bullet wounds in him, and, after a se ries of unpubhshable humiliations, had been drafted from camp to camp until he had arrived as this little town, where, in view of the German policy of letting all the population see an Englishman, he was the representative of vein race in that commnnity. "The local M.P." he called himself, in his hu mourous way. Robinson Crusoe on his island was not more ignorant >if the truth about the war than ;hat man. lor. while he had learnt a few daily expressions in tier man, he was unable to read it. The only information he could gather was from the French, lielgian, and Russian prisoners with him, and some he got by bribing one of the Landsturm Guards with a little margarine or sugar out of Ins parcel from England. I le was full of the battle of MonS and how badly he and his comrades in (!er many felt at (he-way they bad been left unsupported there. I le was bitter at the neglect of the English prisoners by the British authorities None Hie less, though alone, with no English man for miles; living almost en liiely on his pan ., absolutely cut off from the real facts of the war, hearing nothing but hes, he was as calmly confident ,,f your ultimate victory as 1 am. I asked him if he heard from h .me. "Yes," he said, "now and then but the folks tell me nothing and lean tell them nothing.

ONE-rlay tlie woild will be
flooded with some of the
most dramatic, horrible,and ro
mantiC of narrativesthe life
stories of the English soldiers
captured in the early days of the
war, their gross ill treatment,
their escapes, and attempts at
escape. 1 claim to he the only
unofficial neutral with any large
amount of e>e witness,band to-
hand knowledge <>f your poor
men in Germany.
When in August, 1915. Lrd
Northcliffe gave me my instruc-
tions to go into Germany and
to remain, if necessary, for a
year, he was very specific on the
question of prisoners. He told
me 'li t BS soon as 1 had got the
D nil'Icii' <, or as much of the
Confidence as one can Ret, of the
(ierman authorities, it was his
y 1 gent w isb that I should find
out what was happening to 30,
Oi'io Soldiers and 1,000 civilians
now 111 captivity. I was instruct-
ed to transmit the information to
him d possible via Holland,
Switzerland, or the United states
and, if not possible, to memorize
it carefu'ily and bring it with
me in person. I found it impos
sible to send in writing.
On the whole, the task set me
was one of the most difficult of
this last 10 months' investiga
tion, or, indeed, of my previous
visits.
It was facilitated by the Ger-
man policy of showing the hat-
1 d English captives to as many
people as possible. Your 30,000
men have been scattered into at
least 600 prison camps. In the
depleted state of the German
Army it is not easy to find effi-
cient guards for so many esta-
blishments. Your men are con-
stantly being moved about-
They are conveyed ostentatious.
Iv and,shown at railway stations
en route where until recently
I hey were allowed to be spat
Upon by the public, and were
given coffee into which the pub-
lic were allowed to spit. These
are but a few of the slights and
abominations heaped upon
them. Much of it is quite un
printable.
Many a night did I lie awake
in Berlin cogitating how to get
into touch with some of these
men. f learned something on a
previous visit in 1914, when I
saw the English prisoners at
At that time it was impossible
to get into conversation with
them. They were efficientl)
and continually guarded by
comparatively active soldiers.
The First Prisoner
Met
On this OCCassion I came
ai ross my first English prisonei
quite by accident, and, as so of
ten happens in life, difficult pro
blems keltic themselves auto
matically. In nothing that I
u rite shall I give an) indication
of the whereab uts of the 60
prisoners with whom I conveis
ed privately, but there can be
no harm in my mentioning the
whereabouts M mv public visit
which took place in one of the
regular neutral "Cook's tours"
of the prisoners in Germany.
The strain of my work in so
suspicious a place as Berlin ; the
constant can- required to guard
one's expressions and theanx
iety as to whether one was !>'
nig watched or not gets on the
nerves sometimes, and one Sun-
day 1 determined to take a day
off and go into the country with
another neutral friend. There,
by accident 1 came across my
first private specimen of Tum-
my in < let may.
VVe were looking about for
a decent Gasthaus in which to
get something to eat when we
saw a notie high up in large
type on a wall outside an old
farmhouse building, which
read :
Jcdcv Yerhehr Jer Zivilberol
kerung mii den Kriegs?efangtnen
isi Strbng Vbrbotbn.
Anv intercourse of the civil
population with the prisoners
of war is strictly forbidden.
Thete notes, which threaten
the civilian population with
heavy penalties if they exchange
any words with the prisoners,
are familiar ail over Germany,
but 1 did riot expect to find them
in that small town.
M) neutral friend .thought it
would make a nice photograph
if I would stand under the notice.
English in Russian
Garb
As I did so a Russian came
out of the bam and said, in
rather bad German, "Going to
have your photograph taken ?"
f replied, in German. "Yes."
He heard me speaking Eng.
lish to my friend,and then,look.
ing up and down the street
each way to see if we were be-
ing watched, he addressed me
in English with a strong Cock-
ney accent.
'.You speak English then ?" I
said,
'1 am English," he replied.
"I'm an English prisoner."
' Then what are you doing in
a Russian uniform ?"
"It is the only thing I could
i^et when my own clothes Wore
out." Keeping a careful eye up
and down the street, he told us
his story. He was one of the
old Expeditionary Force was
taken at Mons with five bullet
wounds in him, and, after a se
ries of unpubhshable humilia-
tions, had been drafted from
camp to camp until he had ar-
rived as this little town, where,
in view of the German policy
of letting all the population see
an Englishman, he was the rep-
resentative of vein race in that
commnnity. "The local M.P."
he called himself, in his hu
mourous way.
Robinson Crusoe on his island
was not more ignorant >if the
truth about the war than ;hat
man. lor. while he had learnt a
few daily expressions in tier
man, he was unable to read it.
The only information he could
gather was from the French,
lielgian, and Russian prisoners
with him, and some he got by
bribing one of the Landsturm
Guards with a little margarine
or sugar out of Ins parcel from
England. I le was full of the
battle of MonS and how badly
he and his comrades in (!er
many felt at (he-way they bad

was bitter at the neglect of the
English prisoners by the British
authorities None Hie less,
though alone, with no English
man for miles; living almost en
liiely on his pan ., absolutely
cut off from the real facts of the
war, hearing nothing but hes,
he was as calmly confident ,,f
your ultimate victory as 1 am.
I asked him if he heard from
h .me.
"Yes," he said, "now and then
