And then from our side there arose a buzzing, n fierce sharp buz zing, and It made straight like a bee line for the little French flyer. It went through the clouds and disap peared. No tiling could be seen. Tbi clouds covered all. Five minutes of suspense passed, and then a shot, f. after thnt a ronrlng. Wo waited breathlessly, and then two little black spots were seen breaking through tha clouds. Tiny little spots, and these spots were tbe two French nvlatorn. They grew bigger as they fell.

Its wings were jet on fire, and the red, white and blue wf the trl-colors looked like a revolving American barber pole.
