"Several of their bullets pierced the iiinr3 of the aeroplane and the others si ruck the stays. We still Hew on however, as it was necessary to obtain the exact position of the army. Then the Cerman artillery began. Their shells burst near the aeroplane and each explosion caused it to rock. It was lUilcuit to retain control, as pieces of hells bad seriously camayed two of l lie stays.

Neither in Jirussels' nor its environs was a single oiTensivo act, so far as I know, committed by a Herman soldier. "I have actual knowledge of sniping by r.elglan civilians at Manage and other towns nnd even the Hclglans ad mit that in a few Instances they have be en guilty of this. This furnishes a provocation for the only Herman sev erity which I have had opportunity to observe the burning of houses. "This, of course, la not a brief for the Herman army. It is an account of Herman conduct as it appeared to an observer who had the rather extra ordinary opportunity of traveling for days with the Herman columns over a distance of more than 1 n mi'""s through a dozen important cities and towns."

C Harris, supervisor of the work of the Methodist Kpiseopal church In Japan and Korea, has sent to the -Methodist board of foreign missions here the fol lowing statement: "While the great war In Europe has affected both the business and the religious world In general, there has been no interference with the work of missions In the far east. The churches In Japan and Korea are undisturbed nnd retrular activities continue as though the nngel of pence were hov ering over the whole world." t. t v t V y y y y y y Y Y y y y ". II I'loin the manner In which tux col lections , axe been coining In in tin village of Laurium, the villa e will have phnty of fun. Is for all require ments (his year. Notwithstanding the effect of the Kuropean war on business and the lurtallmeut of mine opera tions, collections to date hae been ex 'cllent. nggregatlng from $15.0'' to Hi,0H), almost half ,f the total of about $36,(100 which was spread upon the tax rolls. Tho ollc tions r.o far this ear compare very favorable with those at the same time In other recent cnrs and warrant the hope the dclin 'inent list v41l be exceptionally small. 'Hie warrant on the tax roll expires the third Monday in October and fixes not paid by that Lnie will bo tlasslfied as delinquent and may be returned to the county treasurer for collection. Although it has been customary in the past for the county treasurer to exer cise leniency, and to grant the village treasurers extra (Jnie in which to make collections, but this is by no means a safe precedent and it be hooves taxpayers to settle with the treasurer before the above date and thus avoid the extra trouble of having the taxes collected by the county treasurer, In the event he calls for the tax books when the warrant expires. I-iurium village officials encountered u strange elrcum.Htance this week, one which iH almost n precedent for the state, when application was made by a taxpayer to be placed on the a.' ssess- ment roll for the remainder t tiw. present ear. Manager HlilTe of Hrlnnell Ibis. Ilranch Music House, is the honest taxpayer who does not care to avail himself of an opportunity to escape taxation in a perfectly legal way. lie explained to the oilh ials that the Hrln nell Itros. branch was established in Laurium after the regular assessment roll for 1914 was prepared, and there to! e Is not Included on the role. The branch is a permanent establishment, however, is now part of Laurium. and Manager ("liffe feels it a civic dnfy to pay taxes for this year, thus shar ing with other taxpayers the cost of the municipal government. He set out in a Spartan effort to accomplish this purpose. And Manager vT:t'fo Is to bo accom modated. Although there is no preced ent in the village for a revision of the assessment roll after it has once been formally approved by the council and the taxes spread at-altist the individual assessed valuations, It is felt this ac tion Is perfectly legal, and at the next oie-iinf: or i ne council, the village at torney will be instructed to direct til legal procedure which must be gen through before the revision can be ac complished.
