The guns which were to be used for this purpose had never been fired anywhere except on the testing grounds and even the German soldiers were unaware of their existence. The largest were sixteen-inch cal iber, with a flattened trajectory. Each gun was about sixty feet long and weighed 110 tons, the range be ing more than thirty miles and the shells weighing 1600 pounds each. Each shell was three feet long and charged with seventy-five pounds *f explosives. The guns were already mounted on trucks awaiting the signal that would send them to their newly pre pared positions. They were to have been placed on concrete platforms which could be built in from ten to fifteen days. As Paris is shaped like an eclipse, with the major axis seven and a half miles long, the city would have been an easy target , , . It was intended to let the shells fall in a haphazard manner with the j object of terrorizing the people. :o: __ MIK WANTED.

Brakefield and j Amsterdam, Aug. 20.—Profession al soldiers like Genenrals von Blume and vort Liebert, unlike so many other German war critics, do not seek to belittle the significance of the appearance of the American army on the west front. • 's General von Blume, who is on the retired list, writes an article on the subject which appears in the Rhein ische Westfalische Keitung of Es sen. He frankly admits that "we have to recognize that the Ameri cans, all in all, have done very smart V<>rk and it would be a very serious thing of the German army edmmand had to face an American fighting army of millions." Almost immediately after the ar ticle appeared a semi-officiol state ment was issued to the effect that the exaggerated reports going about regarding the size of the American army in Europe merit no credence, and only exist in Yankee imagina tion and Entente propognnda. The statement said further that "the tonnage question, which is already acute, will become still more serious for the Entente when America has to ship her crops to Europe. General von Liebert, who was fos mer German commandant at Lodz and who now is military critic of the Taeglische Rundschau of Berlin, tells the public that the American army has actually become a big faç . „ — l* 01- &n<i the deb a*I«tions in France ! j are proceediTÎ S regularly.
