Sullivan O, bitter and sad were the tears that we shed when we read the big headlines, """ON HINDENBURG DEAD." We grieved for the loss of him, griz zled and browo, who ate Christ mas dinner in Gay Paree town. No more will Von Hindy lead armies galore and revel in blood shed and wallow in gore; do more will bis great name bring terror and fright to the ranks of the Allies, they've put out his light; no more will the Germans determine to burst or arrive in to Paris by April the first. Von Hindenburg's gone! There's rejoicing in bell, sod cannon and muskets are tolling bis knell. The Angel of Peace is enjoying a dream, but we know very well things are not what they seem. If the old guy bad died every time that's reported he'd more lives tban any cat tbst ever ca vorted. So weep not for bim! He'll bob up again and arrive eafe'ln Paris sometime,' bat then it won't be ss victor; , it will be when his h.rde has 1 withered away like a frostbitten gourd, and we've taken him prisoner, when 'twill bejoiir delight to ex hibit Von Hindy at so muchflper -eight.
