the people refusing to be distractd from their Sunday habits
to any great extent.
Warning U Iud.
For the benefit of that portion, of the populace which had
been led to believe the Germans had broken through the
line and were bombarding Paris from nearby positions, a
semi-official note was Issued during tho day. This warned
lha nannla ncrainat believinif DCSsimistic reports.
"The French front is intact," said the note. "Any asser
tion to the contrary Is a lie."

the shells arrived in twenty-minute intervals, later in ,jahe

In military circles the belief was expressed that the Ger
mans were using two long distance guns. The Matin says
the position of one of the guns was established In the St.
Gobain forest which would place it Bomewhat further south
than had been believed and in the wooded area. This posi
tion would be about seventy-five miles from Paris.
During the early hours of the morning traffic in. the
street of Paris was shut down or curtailed, dui Deiore noon
both the streets and the city showed great animation. Dur
ing the day large numbers of persons, unable to secure means
of transport to take them to their destinaiions walked in
order that they might keep their appointments. As is usual
when aircraft warnings are sounded, large numbers of th.0
populace sought shelter in the subways and in basements of
Warning for Bombardment.
The 'government has decided that in the future the bom

the normal life of the capital, but that the population shall
be warned of a bombardment by distinctive means, differing
