and l>esdly> Uowed Down
New York, Sept. 12.—A vivid de-
Rcription of the fighting before Liege,
attributed to a Gerihan officer who
was seriously wounded in the battle,
ie published by the Weser Zeitung of
Bremen, copies of which reached here
today. Under the caption “Prom the
Border to Liege,” the officer describes
his experiences and feelings in a let
ter which reads in part as follows;
“Our trip to the Belgian border was
a triumphal procession. It was pour
ing rain as we marched through Ihe
Ardennes. The towns seemed desert
ed. We had no rest and during ^he
night were fired upon.
“At 5 a. m. (.August 6) we march
ed through the Ourthe valley, meet
ing obstacles everywhere. It was an
awful march; the roads were blocked
by felled trees and bowlders; of the
bridges there were only remna.^ts. In
the afternoon we took up quarters
in a village south of ^ege.
“I am taken to a field hospiul.
During the first few days I suffer ter
ribly, but now I am much better.
There are others who have to suffer
greater pain than Ij that makes one
"I have lost everything. The
clothes I wore were so soaked with
blood that they were burned. A Rus
sian brought me some underwear and
a sympathetic little woman is wash
ing and mending a uniforjn for me.’'

“Thirty minutes pass and we are

StatesTille Man Sbo()tii it OMeet Who
Statesville, Sept. 15.—Dan T. Mor
rison, a mechanic, caused consider
able excitement in the businesB sec
tion of Statesville lest night by tir
ing three shots at officers who were at-
teqipting to arrest him. Morrison,
who was under the influence of li
quor or some kind of dop#, U said
to have missed the small wajgon in
vvhich he hauls his tools from place to
place, and he appeared on the street
near the public square wmed with a
383,^alibre Smith & Wesson pistol in
search of the waa'on or for whoever
took it. poKcemtn asked Morrison
to put the pistol away, but the latter
refused, threatening to shoot the of
ficer if he attempted to arrest him.
Several attempts were made to get
the pistol away from Morrison with
out trouble,, but he was always on
guard and stood off the officers for
some time. Finally his arrest was ef
fected through a ru.se. While a citi
zen engaged him in conversation on
the street. Officer J. Will Mills stood
on the running board of an autoiiio-
bile and had the machine run by Mor
rison. Just as the machine passed
Morrison, Mills jumped off and grrsp
ed him, throwing him to the ground.
Officers Neighbors ran to Mills’ aid
and during the struggle, Morrison Sr-
ed his pi.stol three times before it vvas
wrenched from his hand. One shot
burned the ear of Mr. Mills, but none
of the bullets took effect. Morrison
said he intended to kill Mills. After
being disarmed he was placed in ihe
city prison to await trial.
Building of Wagon Factory Ik Binn
ed at Winston-Salem.
Winston-Salem, September 15th.—
Fire completely destroyed a three-
story frame building belonging to *he
Nissen Wagon Works in Waughtown,
a suburb of Winston-Salem, this
morning about 10 o’clock. The loss is
estimated at S20,000 and is covered
by ir.sur&nce to the extent of about
20 per cent.
The lire was discovered in the roof
of the building, which was covered
with shingle.s. It is thought that it
originated from a spark from the
smoke stack in an adjoining building.
The workmen fought the flames hero
ically, but a strong vrind rendered
their efforts practically useless.
An appeal was made to Mayor O.
B. Eaton for help from the city fire
department. He responded promptly
and although the firemen could not
save the burning building, they kept
the flames from spreading.
Mr. Nissen stated that the burning
of the plant would not interrupt tiie
work of the factory, Dpulicates of
practically ail machinery dttetroyed
were had in another building. This
was immediately moved into the main
building and Mr. Nissen .stated that
he would begin operating it tomorrow
and would make as many wagons this
week as ever with the exception of
the toss of time today.
