Dr. Belaud theu|so; asked for a permit to go to Holland, D-cr and while this was at first granted, under certain re a net ions, it was afterwards cancelled, ami the guarantee of his Immunity was proved to lie but another "scrap of paper." Within two days Dr. Belaud was taken to Antwerp, dealt with by nn arrogant German officer, literally thrown into a room and informed that "under orders from Benin," he must be interned.

G000 CROWD HEAR BELAND'S STORY Once again the order wan the favorite German one of "Kommen , try it, probably you will be 'surprised at the result. It is by j paving Hlteiition to the minor details � that you are going to be a player. ; Vou may be tuld to alter your grip, ! or that you do not. stand correctly to I tie- ball, that your swing is not what | it should be perhaps that you are not holding the club firm enough, by taking the advice give.a you you may iiiiiii find out. just, what difftrence there is in playing a :;)iot as it .should be played, from playing it. in a happy-1 eo-lueky sort of style. j During tlie siummcr I was playing j with a lieEiiiiu r - one. 1 may say who j has figured in the prize list this sea-j son--on one of the teeijig grounds I told him to alter his stance and diowed him how to stand to the hall. He protested strongly, said he would not be able to hit, it at all, and I can't tell you,all that was to happen if ho did as I told him, 1 persisted ho Hhould try It, which lie finally did, played the shot, landed flu- ball on tho green and m-arly holed out In two. he was very much surprised at the result. I wa3 more than amused. To lonni the game well lake It seriously, think of what you mean to do, It ts a - game of concent nil Ion. You can't play good golf, and at the name, time play the fool, there Is no serious harm in a little friendly chaff in a game, nUll don't carry It too far. I Homemher you are out to put that. I innocent little ball in the hole In Ihe I fewest number of atrohes poss-Hik; and I make up your mind to do it, or you j will have run in to double, figures i before you know what has happened. [ When you are f-hoivn a shot practice I it anil practice hard and often until | you have got it, then you will play it with confidence, don't be afraid to hit out, put somu dovil Into your play, and >ou will soon bo able to return a respectable score. Don't he like a fellow dub-main of mine in the old country of whom I heard a young iady make rather an vs/zmp i ainusliitf reniaiis. 5 was waiting my DEIfSEY IN N. Y. Mi returned to Belgium through Paris and in I'nris there were ominou signs of the (oming cataclysm. Dr Beiand bad his home in : some seven miles from Antwerp, and j on August 1 he heard serious rumors i about the future, white on August . war was declared by Germany against . Russia and Belgium. ; It. Belaud immediately volunteered in Antwerp for Red Cross work, was j accepted and began on the staff of the sit/Elizabeth hospital, where he , remained on duty until tho fa!! of � Antwerp. I The German attack upon Antwerp, i which began in September. 1M1, had i for its Immediate catiso the German defeat on tlie Marnu. I Dr. lleland. like many military ex-'. pens, expected that Antwerp would at least six months' resistance, inn they had not then known of Ger-' ninny's VI centimetre gun and other armaments, nor of the concrete plat-! forms prepared long hefore the war. 1 Of this latter fact Dr. Belaud had San Francisco. Sept. l;i.-Willie ohan.

The rtrik-n.-xt ami -smothered Dempsev with | inf feature of tho defense ot Anlwerp was the artillery duet of thi blow.' If en t;t i men. j "Where are wi'.'" asked Dr Belaud. '"We are in i.ill." was the answer. ] "At least " said Dr. Belaud, "we I will get anile food,' 1 lie learned in his dismay thai nolle I ing would be served out until the \ morning, and ihn only bread, one i of the inmates, however. named I Robinson, who turned out to be a joe-i key, shared with Dr. Belaud, some ] bread he had saved, but to the doctor's dismay, there was no butter, suburb. I ], (j,,, m(,i-iijiig the governor made ill's round and his "Gute morgen," sounded always. De Belaud said, like "Go to Hell." 260 Fellow Prisoners. The jail In which Dr. Belaud now found himself Incarcerated and where he remained for three years, were 2.rai prisoners of all nationalities, including neutrals, and one Canadian, the doctor himself. There were also several German prisoners, including two members of the Reiclislag who had fallen into Ill-favor with the government. Food was secured by Dr. Belaud and his confreres by purchuxo in Berlin, by the prison fare supplied, and by parcels from Die Old Country. In March, lit Hi. rationing began In Berlin, nnd tho prisoners were reduced to living upon the prison fare. This consisted of eight ounces of black bread, supplied in the morning, soup at 11 a.m., ami smotii to the body, was cm- of a series of bouts giv-i obtain funds to purchase gymnasium e-|ui|iment for naval training stations Approximately fis.nfiii wan obtained. nnd boup again at fi o'clock. "(Cloven o'clock soup," said Dr. Bo-land, "was morn respectable- than that supplied at 5 o'clock. "But everything w�s better thnn herring soup, which was altogether 'too much.''' For two hours in mlvnnrn tho prlt> oners were nuide aware by their nenrtn or smell that herring r,oup was uu tho menu. Getting Food From Outside At this stage Dr. Belaud put himself in touch with Sir George Perloy, in London, and after a delay of threo months, during which time lie waa constantly hungry, the. first parcel arrived. That was an event which he never would forget, nnd to himself and his little group of friends It wasj a very real banquet. Later, the Hetl Cross parcels began to come In, and utter that they came with fair regularity. Commenting on the German officer Dr. Behind said that between the lowest rank of commissioned officer and the highest, rank of N'.C.O., a great gulf was fixed, tho N'.C.O. being In servile subjection to his officer, without knowledge of what nelf-respect meant. During the three years that he wan confined In his cell, thorn | were three, sounds which ho would ever forget. These wcro the two i.'eavy turns of Hie key and tho pushing In of tho bolt, when the door was closed upon him. Many stories were told by Dr. Belaud in ills quaint way of the Irrepressible good humor of his Kngllsli friends, and. inferenthilly, of his own. For instance, when an order was glv-' en that, when peeling potatoes, prl-�s should throw the skins into a ill bucket, ivhere they could he ' preserved and ai'ti rwnrds made use of possibly in soup one of the Kiig-llsh prisoners offered as an excuse, "I eat mine." Another of llieiii. in writing home to his wile, said, "We get just enough food to keep us from dying - not. enough to keep us living." At the end of Dr. lleland's first year in prison a rumor got about that ho was to be released. A banquet was surreptitiously arranged for and held in Dr. Belaud's cell. In addition, ho got a permit, and was allowed two hours out, his first time in a year, to buy some clothing, lie was brought, back and later learned that his release had been vetoed by the superior authorities. Ills protest against tho breach of all iiibernatlonal law in keep-' ing him in durance was the common German one of "ICss Ist Krclgl" "It is war I" One more year passed, during which, Dr. Belaud was never outside tho prison walls, and on his health Vailing, he. hacked by the prison physician; made strong representations and was finally allowed three hours' cotiipara-;tire freedom twice a week. Attempts at Escape Dr. Belaud then gave details or many attempts ot the prisoners to escape. In op.' ilny 11 Britisher:; managed to break out, only to be recap-i lured after a very brief spell of free-1 dom. I Tlie g'-eat day came at last when i Dr. Bdand learned of his exchange, | said good-bye to bis Knglish friends, was taken to the Dutch frontier, orosfo ed into Holland, and was "again a tree man." ! On reaching London, the restored ' prisoner was graciously received by | the king tit Buckingham palace, and 'was treated with untorgctlablo kindness by all. 1 Dr. Belaud said In conclusion: ; "Twenty-three allied nations, am-l ongst them being the three most 1m-| port tint democracies In the world, Island together today for honor, Jus-' tlco and liberty, which have been [trampled on by Germany to the Ignor-i ing of all International law. Cunadu is proud of her sons, and those of them wlio havo mado tho supremo sacrifice will he enshrined in her memory as long as tho St. Lawrence flows to the seas, and will be held In honor In all coming generations. What Car-dinal .Merrier said was true: 'A man who dies for his country is a saint'" Dr. Belaud concluded with a stirring appeal for unity of races In Canada, speaking on behalf ot his own people in Quebec, who, ho said when they realized that this was a war In protect their homes and firesides, were Just as eager for the fray as any other. Calgary. Sept. 13.-The local ail-star.,' made a poor showing against, tho Moose Jaw Robin Hoods Inst night In the first game ot the three-game series for tlie championship of tho | foeth'n hospital west when they took the lean end of an 11-2 score at the hands of Hank O'Day and ills merry men. The visitors had the Hiimn all the way through and after the first inning wore never in danger of taking tho short end. The Calgary boya did not play their usual brand of ball, and were hopelessly outclassed in every way. turn to play, there wan quite a number of ladles present at the first tee when the player mentioned played his drive; the young lady remarked that man .bits hi., ball in the same way as if ho was liltiIng his wife, it caused a good laugh amongst tins crowd and I asked her what she meant. Oh, she said lie hits It, just as It he was frightened to do it. So don't he afraid of the ball, hit it, and hit it hard and true and you will find it will travel far and mire. Also remember to koop your eye on tint ball. I hope the weather will bo of tho best this weekend, ho that the competition will be played without any tut her postponement, DAYF. HUMS. tho defense of Germans and tlie British Naval Brigade. Winston Churchill had visited Antwerp and promised help. Within two days the Naval Brigade was In Antwerp, and kept up such a continuous fire thai Hie Germans thought there were at least ."O.OiiO of them. Work Naval Brinade. "It was an undoubted fact," said Dr. Belaud, "that whatever may be said to the contrary, the British Naval brigade was the means of enabling j the Belgian army to escape, and assume the position upon the Yser canal,, ivhere It stands undefirated until this day." ' I Dr. Belaud, after many interesting! and pathetic details of the flights of I Belgian refugees, told how he him-self remained at Ills duty at St. Kdlza-ttntll forced to leave. J In HO hours 2a,Odd sIioIIh fell In the city, which they destroyed, but missed entirely the Belgian headquarters.
