tho enemy overhead and crowding jii

Invader Is said to have approached Iyim
it an elevation of only .100 feet.
Tho bombs which exploded were tre
mendously powerful. This was shown by
the destruction of the tfciate and (lazley

probably to wreck the Anglo-American

'Welirheil Prom 00 to IOI I'onnda,
An examination of unexploded bombs
wnd of fragment of bombs soi part way
toward answering the question us to what
"ipe of airship was used In tho raid.
Aeronautical exporta believe that alr
Milp of the small, non-rigid l'arseval
i' pe were rmployl. They are slower
than Zeppelins nnd can carry less am
munition, but they are nutnufactuied
tulckly, The bombs, dropped weighed
.rier sixty to 100 i-ounds each.
On tho other hand, ono of the bombs

i ed In aerial torpedo tubes uch as aro
' ttd to Zeppelin". The destructive re
- ills on Die tlsh wharf and on St Peter's
J'lain at Yarmouth leml more color to
the Zeppelin theorj.
Apparently the raiders, described In the
'ietniati olllcial report ut naval airships,
ualch mlg'ht mean either Parsevals or
Zeppelin!-, dropped twenty bombs. It !s
i ii known that only four persons were
: died and that ten were Injured. Yar
mouth and Kings Lynn were most dam
aged. The most authoritative statement as to
the type of aircraft comes from Major
stley, commanding the National Reserves
it King's Lynn. He will report olllclnlly
fiat one of the latest Zeppelin types flew
over that town.
Tho explosive employed has not heen
nalyied, but whatever Its constituents
vero It was extraordlnarllj powerful. From
nc of the bombs which did not explode
lumps of a yellowish suhftancc were taken
lid distributed as souvenirs. A teamster,
(hiding a bomb lying under tho feet of
nis horse, carelessly kicked It to on
Ido and drove on, Ignorant of the nature
of the object.
Although the damago was Insignificant
'hero are numerous stmries as to the ex
lent of tho broken glass damage. The
bomb which killed an old man and an old
woman at Yarmouth made such a hole

Conduct of Citizen I'mlaeil.
Bo far as Is now Known, no one was
Killed In any of the other towns or villages
i-slted. At King's Lynn the greatest
tarmgo was done In a row of houses In
ilentlnek street, where the two live were
'ot Homo damage was done In Albert

Tho authorities ure rnthuslastle In

there was some panic and much useless
