Yesterday olghty shells Tell In the '.own, adding one more to the fresh graves jn thc cemetery and increasing the devastation. The villagers have distinguished a new note lc the formi dable concert playing all about them. It is the voice of the big French guns that have commenced pounding thc southern forts of thc fortified camp >f Metz. They know where they are , but no one mentions the name o? tue ipot for o'lery Inhabitant of Pont-a- ; MoiiBson has acquired military diacre- ' lion. ! "Each one in his turn." said a non- , omtnissloncd officer, dining off a half | demolished table In a characteristic ( old provincial auberge across the \ bridge in the suburb of Saint Michel. "Now they arc going to get theirs- j ind how they aro going to get it, ; though!" "Tit for tat," ho added, to the land- | lady coming in from the kitchen to ' serve him. Through the door she j opened the kitchen was seen to bu \ open to thc sky. "lt doesn't matter a bit when the weather's good," said ] tho landlady. "In fact that old range scorns to work better than over In the open air. but when lt raino lt kicks like sixty." Thc kitchen In question had boen visited by a 12-inch shell and all that wa? left of it was the range and chim ney. The partitions separating the dining room and bar were riddled by fragments. Tho bar Its?lf had had Ita back broken and the tpblcs and chairs were in various stages Of demolition. "What a fright you muH have had." said the sergeant. "YeB." replied the simple Old lady. "I was afraid the range was busted." Such is the spirit of these frontier folks who have been bombarded for nine months and have witnessed some of the momentous developments of the .jlgantJc duel between the principal opostng fortresses ot Metz and Ver dun. Metz delivered the first blow. Verdun ls now countering. The berman armies Invading France were unable to use their forces to thc best advantage ov,?r BO short a front is the boundary between Frauce and Germany. That is one of tho rearms .-riven by military experts for the vio lation of the neutrality of belgium by Germany. This strategical move ment enabled them to pivot on Metz ind Wheel around through Belgium Into France over a vast front. The GermsL left resting on Mets, was at once engaged with the French center resting on Verdun. The crown prince's army, coming into France .by way of Long wy, attacked Verdun on two sides. It succeeded In demolish ing Troyon. an Interval fort between Verdun and Toul. but the only fort around Verdun they, were ablo to at tack was Douamont. and the French claim not a shell struck home. This bombardment was effected from a sort of neutral zone to the north which neither side has occupied-con sisting of two small plateaus called "LOB Jumelles de Ornes." The Gor maos constructed a railroad behind these plateaus, brought up guns by. train. Bred a few shots, then drew the guna end to Ulla'desultory attack and since then the pressure on Ver dun has gradually turned upon Metz. Student? of the military operations declare that the French have been within, long range of the Sommy and Wagne. forts for several weeks and could have attacked them with heavy artillery at the time they began bom bard Inf the railroad linee at Aroa ville, ilie entire-distance between Verdun and Meta la only 127' miles. It ia supposed that they were walt ing for Uto new heavy English mor tars from which great things are ex pected The fortress of Metz, like that of Verdun, ls aurronded by heights af fording admirable protection and coramindlnr long distances of ap proaching gtound. In the time of Ute Fi?ucu pOMVMion of Alsace-Lorraine it was snpposed to be Ute strongest fortified place on the frontier. Thc Germans began to strengthen it im mediately after 1871.

REMARKABLE GASE CF GOOD FORTUNE WAN'S INSURANCE POLICY EXPIRED FEW HOURS AF TER HE WAS KILLED VICTIM CYCLONE His Policy Had Lapsed and Ca?h Value of Same Had Been Exhausted. One of the most extraordinary ex unplrs of fortune, good luck, or what UT one might desire to call lt. with eference to life Insurance that has r*\^r been known in this part of the odntry came lo light in tho recent cy looe which swept several counties in the eastern mut of the State, killing l?verai persons and injuring others. A man was killed when a stoue lui liding was blown upon him by the cyclone. He left a wife and several children. AU the insurance he had was a policy of $1.000 on one cowinnny and a policy for $l.uoo in tho Mutual Benefit Mic Insurance, which has of fices of the general agent in this slty. Tue policy for the large: amount of Insurance expired but a few I hours after the mari was killed. AB a matter of fact, the policy had lapsed because of non-payment of a premium and because the cash value of the tame had been exhausted by loans on the same. It wau in force, howevor, at the time of the party's death be I :aUBe of tiie comnany'8 rules with re ference to the payment of dividends. In a letter to agents throughout the State, Mr. M. M. Mat I ison, general agent, recites the facts of this re markable case, as follows: Under dato of tho 8th Inst., our Mr. E. O. Horton of Manning wrote aa follows: "In rc policy No. 573.905-D. B. Davis.-I regret to report that as surer was killed yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock In Btone building which was destroyed In tho terrific, cyclone. I note thnt assured's policy wan ox tended until' May 7th, 1915, the exact date of his death. Hesse advise status of policy." I'pon Investigation we found that n policy for $1,000 was issued on the life of Mr. Davis in 1911; f>at it lapsed because of non-pnynient of premium due October 1st, 19?4; that tho cash value of thc policy hod been exhausted nj? ?nan:', on same, but was In force at time of party's death, because of our rules in rcferoncc to tho payment of dividends. I'nder Mutual Benefit policios, divi dends after thc first aro not condition ed upon payment of premiums; so when this policy lapsed tho company automatically applied the dividends. $14,104 regular, and $2.93 special, a total of $17.57, as a credit os thc loan, which as you can understand revived or restored an equal amount nf the cash value, which value was sufficient to extend the policy for 218 days, or through May 7. 1915. Tiie extended insurance period therefore ext I red Friday night. May 7. a few hours af ter Mr. Davis was killcdl. Mr. Hor ton has beeu Instructed tc make up proofs of IOBB, and Just as quickly SB possible wo will make settlement with the beneficiary. Mrs. Sue Davis, wife of th? deceased. I wish to cali your attention to the following points: First-If our dividends were condi tioned upon payment of, premiums there would bave been no extended .ln aurance. Second-If we bad sent Mr. Davis check for his dividends, instead of ap plying them as a credit on his loan and thereby giving him automatic ex tended insurance, be would have had no protneiion under this policy after the expiration of the thirty days of grace. Third--But for our 1314 special dividend the extended Insurance would have expired before time of party's death. Fourth-If after applying the divi dends of $17.57 as a credit on thc loan, the company had applied even dollars, in other words, $17.00, aa most companies would have done, to the extension cf thc insurance, this policy would not have been In force on last Friday afternoon. Fifth-It is unnecessary to say that If this had been a non-rartlclo?>.ttng policy there would have been no ex tension whatever and no protection after the expiration of thc usual thirty days of grac. This is one of the most striking cases wc have ever experienced In our wholo career; it illustrates in no uncertain way the quality cf Mutual Benefit insurance; and will be of un told benefit to you in your efforts to convince the Insuring public that the Mutual Benefit is absolutely In a class to Itself.
