We slept and ate in Its I cellars^-and we slept and fed well, ' too. Thousands of troops are quartered (hern, all the time. The citadel could face a siege of many weeks, bo-cause it is a huge place and is stocked with provisions sufficient to feed a small army for a considerable time. Within its walls are a store that does a business occasionally as heavy as $7,000 a day; a hospital three chapels. Roman Catholic, Protestant and Jewish, a moving picture theatre, large j dining and sleeping quarters for officers and men, big machine shops and power house. The entire place Is lighted by electricity and there Is also s splendid ventilation system. In tho cellar where we slept, dampness was very noticeable, but the air was fresh. This citadel has played a great part in the defence of Verdun. Its guns have wrecked tho ambitions of the Hun, who now realizes that Verdun Is Invincible.
