■UN CRUELTY TAKES
YEARS OFF HIS LIFE
New York.Feb. 21.-A tale of
the systematic crulty which the
Germans employ to baeak the-
spirets and bodies of their prison-
ers was told in this city by Arthur
Burton Creagh, formerly of the
Royal flying corps, who escaped
from the prison camp at Muenstar
anb bears on his own body the
marks of his captors' brutalify,
Creagh is not as tall as he was,
for beatings with a rifle butt have
made him a hunchback, and his
life doubtless will be shortened be-
cause a depression in his side has
made seven broken ribs that were
not mended press against his heart
These he got because he tried to
escape from Germany.
The plane in which Creagh was
an observer was forced down mo-
re than a year and a half ago.
The pilot of the machine was shot
thru the head in a fight that be-
gan 18,000 ft. above the battle-
field . The crippled machine flut-
tered to the ground behined the
German lines, and Creagh had
only time to see it burned and to
destroy the papers he had with
him before he was taken,

UNCLE 6AM OFFERS
BARGAIN FIRST TIME

the United States, the government la
offering something for sale at bargain
prices. The offer to many reads lime
an oil company's advertisements, ex-
cept that everything about the offer

This offer Is to sell war savings
stamps In February at $4.13 each,
then on January 1, 1923, redeem these
same stamps for $5. Four per cent

Ueved, will realize at once this ad-
vantage and become purchasers of
war savings stamps.

banks and up-to-date stores.

the government does not ask you
to starve the body.
