In Its o. plicity, its In its revelation of the human, individual side of thi monstrous war, which is only redeem- ed by the virtues which still reslit its brutality. It seems to rae a document of amazing interest One passage in it will arrest the attention of all read- ers. It is an extraordinary and almost incredible incident of a German avia- tor and hia inty child, whom be took with him on hia mission of death. But I reproduce the whole document now, as I copied it under the gaslight, sur- rounded by the fYench regiment.

We set out again next morning: for a point twelve kilometres (about miles) behlnd.'at Monteacourt-LezerouIUes, in order to mine a bridge. We -worked all night and returned to 3t. Quentin, where we did reconnaissance work. Germans were sig- nalled and the station of St. Quentin was evacuated. We were directed to maintain order among the crowds who wished to go a'way. It was a sad women and children weeping, and not even trains to serve. At last we got a.way and destroyed the line and station. Destroy the bridge, already ruined!

One more clearly the sound of can- non. After the news this morning I write a line. It appears that the Ger- mans had been destroyed at St. Quen- in today. We have assisted at a duel Between a. biplane and an aeroplane, had nearest me a German ae'roplane, which fell in the English llnss. The officer in charge" of it had with him a child six years old, who was also a German. They were only wounded.
