TO IGNITE HOUSES (By Frederic W. Wile In "Chicago i London, Nov. I have seen ;.roves conclusively that the Germans uol on'iy carried culture Into Belguiu, but also carried materials wHh which io set the country afire. 1 A Belgian-American merchant who lived for a1 time in New York bo- fore returning to his native'country has just arrived in England front Ant- werp and Brussels. He brought with him three small sacks 'about the size of a child's bean bag. They were filled with innocent looking discs of charcoal about ft large as an American 5 cent pioc with a hole in the middle like a Chin esc> coin. These sacks had been sold to him by a German soldier. .They, bear the printed number of the regiment to the equipment of which they belong The soldier said that every man in iiis regiment carried as many of the sacks as'could comfortably bbe key u his pockets or in. the lining of his uniform. The discs have been freely used b> he Germans in their campaigns in France and Belgium for the purpose of firing houses, buildings, and for- ests in. the enemy's country. Bursts into Furious flame T have seen a prominent English chemist's analysis of the discs, .which he certifies are nitrocellulose, a highly explosive and infJamumblo ubstance.. I myself-have 'tested (tie "amazing ualities of these discs, which the Bri- ish soldiers have nicknamed "Gfer- man confetti.-" As soon as a match is pplied to the disc it splutters like a reshly lit firecracker and then bursts nto furious flame like lighted kero- ene., The not remain in ie spot where'iV is thrown, bout like a firecracker. The combus- on. causes no and when the isc has don? its "work not a solitary race of whal caused the fire can be nmd. The German sbldter explained that ie practice is to light an entire sack the discs and then hurl them trough the window or door of the ui'iding which the troops desire to urn. Three different forms of this'incen- ary" ammunition have come to the tention of the British.

After describing liow they waited in the Cathedral Square watching tlie hand ol the great clock, go round and wondering a shell would .drop among them, whilst the crowd siirged across the bridge of boats across the Scheldt, Dr. Souttar uays: "Of all flic pitiful sights I have ever seen, that of the road to Ghent was the most utterly pitiful "I had been in Tremonde, and I understood.
