The old Sherman theatre is taking aspect from entrance to loot-light, and there is prise party in .store distinct sur- fer the Letti- bridge its doors are thrown open. One step inside, the patron will immediately forced to the conclusion that someone has ex- ercised an intimate understanding of his desires, and that the slogan adopted has even been carried into the extensive alterations the inter- ior.

A shrapnel case holds 252 bullets, a.nd the case itselC also breaks up. A shrapnel bursting thirty feet above ground is supposed to kill everything within twenty yards forward and ten yards sidewise. "Whenever cue burst pretty near 200 or 300 flame seemed to blow over until it was quite flat nnd horizontal. Almost to my surprise then it 'would right itself again, and several tlmea I had strength enough to say viciously lo VVeigle, 'You said yon wanted to hear ahrapnel burst near you. Well, you (heard that one, didn't "If the German artillery had ha.d the range on that road filled with the retreating Belgian column they could liavo done enormous damage. But they were 'searching.' I suppose they thought the-Belgians .were deployed i.he fields on each side of the road, it seemed to we that'the sheila were bursting iu the fields bordering the road, but noi in the rond itself. At least. I didn't know of any that burst on the road, yet n few minutes after 1 saw a number of branches from road- Kjtie trees that Imd been cut off by bullets ?Jid dropped, lealy and green, on tile granite paving blocks. I can do nothing but estimate, of course: Imt I don't think that thirty consecu- tive fiecoiidg went by 'when a shrap- nel wasn't exploding somewhere with- in half a mile."
