Verdun, that became immortal as
one of the bloodiest battlefields of the
entire war, has been adopted by the
city and county of London. So great
was the havoc wrought there by the
enemy guns, so great the loss of life,

Villers-Ploulch, and other boroughs are
forming committees to raise funds to
take cure of other villages.
Manchester is raising 50,000 to
help to resurrect the dust heap that
once was Mezieres; and of this
amount 11,000 already has been sub
scribed. Newcastle has undertaken to
provide 20,000 for Arras, and has paid '
Its second installment of the gift. On
February 5, when the mayor, of Arras
visited Newcastle a check for 350,000

Oxford proposes to restare the wa
