In the lull which lias occurred after the great two days' battle In which five vIlluKea and (.000 prtaoners were taken by tho alllca, the correspondent of the Arsoclatcd Presa haa had an opportunity to ulean many atorles from tho participanta in the struggle. These atoriea were not only of courage and heroism, but of a humor and puradox possible only In such complicated and remorseless warfare. The most wonderful of all the tales told was perhups that of one ot the tanks, or new armored motor cars, which started for Berlin on its own account. This monstrous land ahlp, ambling and rumbling along, did not wait on the Infantry after the taking of Guedecourt, but plodded over shell holes and across Iota looking lor us prey like some prehistoric lizard. In course of time It found a German trench but as it engaged tho occupants with its machine gun it ran out of gasoline. When the Germans found this strange creature, with Its steel hide Impenetrable to bullets, stalled, curiosity and a desire for revenge was a fillip to their courage. They went after it with the avidity of prehistoric man stalking a wounded mammoth whose bulk was fast In one of the alleys of the cave dwellers. No such game was ever seen on this western front, marked as it has been by all kinds of bizarre fighting. Swarmed Over Tank According to tho accounts given by the British officers with veracious solemnity, while the tank's machine gun blazed right and left some of the Germans managed to creep along the trenches under the forelegs and hind - legs of the crouching beast. Then they swarmed over It looking for an open ing through which to strike at its vitals. They fired their riffes Into Joints and bombed it ail over, but to no more avail than burglars trying to reach the Inside of a battleship turret with a jimmy. All the while the tank's machine guns kept busy at the human targets In reach while its crew, chosen daredevils, concluded to stick until they starved or the Germans found the proper can opener to get them out. Finally the British In the rear, seeing the tank In distress, refused to wait on any general's orders that they should remain at the objective which they had gained. They were out to save that impounded tank and with a cheer they rushed the Germans and overwhelmed them. When the crew heard - the laughing and shouting In English they opened the door and called out: "We are all right if you will only get us some more Juice so that the old girl can have a guzzle of her proper drink and we cart take the road again. So the infantry formed a line in front of the tank determined to defend her to the last man while a runner was hurried back for a can of gasoline. The gasoline arrived safely and the beast, having taking a swallow, ambled back into reserve amidst wild cheering. It left behind 250 dead Germans, according to Its commander. All Comforts of Home ' Another tank which did well in this fight assisted in the taking of Thiep - val. There was once a chateau in ThieDval. The cellar Is still there, roofed by the remains of the dwelling, bricks, stone and mortar In a thick shell of pounded? debris which protected it from penetration by even nine and twelve - inch high explosives. Here the Germans waited, smoking their mild cigars and drinking soda water which was brought up througn shellproof underground tunnels while the ruins over tneir neaas were De - labored vainly by the British artillery. They had the sense 'of security of an early Kansas settler when he went below and closed his cellar dsor during a cyclone. Of course they had a machine gun ready to welcome the British infantry instantly that the British bombardment stopped. When that gun began rattling Mr. Thomas Atkins took cover and tried ways of means of silencing it. The taking of Thiepval and the Zollern redoubt, which lies between it and Courcelette, was a wonderful business. Thiepval was held by the One Hundred and Eightieth German regiment which had been there fora long time. According to prisoners, the defenders had fortified the commanding ridge with an amazing series of ramified tunnels and dugouts. They had dug into the chalky earth with beaver - like industry until they were safe under a shell fire which would have turned a fort like Maubeuge or Liege or any other of the pre - war type into the Jumbled grave - ; of its e - nrrison. The men of the Hundred and Eightieth asked permission to re main in Thiepval, giving tneir word that it would never be taken from them, and the German army com mand consented. - Not only at this village, Dut an along the ridge upon which hangs the whole Anglo - French movement was the same maze of warren where the Germans lived with all the comforts of home. . - German Reichstag Will Be Only in Minor Degree Legislative Occurrence Berlin, Sept. 27, via London, Sept. 28. The autumn session of the reichs - tag. which begins to - morrow, will be only In a minor degree a legislative occurrence. It will partake far more of the character of a political manifestationon the one hand an - announcement of the chancelor's political faith and an explanation of his conduct of imperial affairs and on the other a strong offensive by the group of stalwarts which for long months hasvbeen fighting Dr. von Bethmann - Hollweg's policy and which has been stirred into almost frantic activity. by the recent publication of the correspondence between Admiral von Tir - pitz, former minister of marine, and Dr. von Bethmann - Hollweg concerning the submarine controversy. Another feature of the session will be an explanation of the economic situation of the country by Vice - Chan - celor Dr. Karl Helfferich, over which, as over tho chancelor's speech on foreign affairs, long and vigorous debates and polemics may be expected to develop. ' . tha trains near Ijuna and with the idea of striking north and invading Texas In tho vicinity of Fabt na, according to the luteal uhd most detailed report of tho bandit lender' movements received lo - nlKlit at Held hembiunrtera. Tha following leading adherenia are aald to be With Villa: Joka I hi Sal a - Bar, Martin Ixipei. Three Qirga brothera, Nikolas Fernandea, Ilia, himself, la aald to bo unable to walk without a crutch or to put hla rlitht foot on the ground. Tha horaea In hla band are reported to be in poor condition and his followers are suld to be In raga. The American expeditionary hend - qunrtera declined to voilch for th authenticity of the reports, but it la believed possible Villa might enter tho Sunta tiara country for the purpose of recruiting or securing bnae from which he could attack tralna and obtain auppllc. This region la his old stamping ground: the outlaw knows the country thoroughly and It would afford hint an almost secure hbllng place. The report makes no mention of a pursuing force, but the fact that Car - ranza troops are moving towards that part of Chihuahua is known at head quarters. General Francisco Gonzales la now at Pearson. Colonel Felippe Cortlnas with 150 men who have been serving as garrison at Casas Grandea, marched last night to Galeana, in the Santa Maria Valley. Investigation today failed to substantiate a report that a fight occurred last night at San Luis ranch, 40 miles east of the American headquarters. Crossing Into Mexico Is Still Regarded as Invasion El Paso, Tex., Sept. 28. That the crossing of the Mexican frontier by armed American soldiers is still regarded as an act of Invasion to be repelled by armed force is revealed In a message received to - day tty Consul Andres Garcia from Colonel Jose Rio - Jas, chief of arms at Ojinaga, relative to the trespass committed in the Big Bend district on September 19 and 21. For this act General FMnston has since ordered a court - martial of the offenders. Five of our men were sent1 to tell them of the order Issued. As before the Americans opened fire which was answered. An American horse was killed and pools of blood found showed that some of the invaders had been wounded. This clash took place four leagues from the river, demonstrating that the main authors of the trouble "were the Americans and not my troops." Col. Riojas said that the American commander at Presidio, Texas, was convinced that his own men were at fault and had offered to make satisfactory amends. Last Stand of Col. Zuayua Who Fought to Death Against Villa Is Dead El Paso. Sept 28. Details of the last stand of Col. Carlos Zuazua and his guard of twenty men who fought to the death against Villa at Santa Isabel about 33 miles west of Chihuahua City on the night of September 20, are given in copies of "El Demorata," a Carranza organ - of Chihuahua, reaching here to - day. The account is is follows: "Col. Zuazua occupied Mis private car at Santa Isabel, guarded by thirty men, the only ones who had1 not deserted htm to join the Villa band. Suddenly a band of twenty led by Villa In person, opened fire on the car. Zua - zue in his nightclothes jumped from his bed and after letting in his guard, locked the doors. For two hours Col. Zuazua said his band made a desper ate resistance, but the Villa met rushed the car, killed every one in side and then burned the car." After this success the bandits sacked the stores of the town and the supply station of the Carranza force, seizing food and clothing. When General Trevlno in Chihua hua found communication at Santa Isabel broken, he suspected something was wrong and ordered General Jose Cavazos to get off. He got as far as St. Andrews, near Santa Isabel, when he was surprised and routed by "Villa. Five survivors of the fight arrived in Chihuahua, according to the paper, with their ears cut off and suffering from exposure and hardship.
