THE   BERLIN   CARNIVAL
C)f all the grand balls in famous old halls
Whose corridors echo with sport,
The Fete Versailles, the Viennese gales,
The Albert Hall, and the Earl's Court,
There's   none   will  compare,   for  glitter  and
glare,
fir raise siu-li a dander and din,
As the carnival gay, to be lield some fine day
(��n the green boulevards of Berlin.
From London. St. Petersburg, Paris, Belgrade
From Tokio, Brussels, and Rome
From Tunis, Calcutta. Gibraltar, Port Said.    . Seven shade- o
And when thev get there, there'll lie a great
stir.
And a babble of every tongue,
In English and Moor, in Cossack and liner,
"The Watch mi the Rhine" will be -iiii^;
The wily Hindu will pray with'the Jew.
The irishman drink with the Finn.
For color and creed there'll be no more need,
When the Allies arrive at   lierlin.
Of colors and lines, there'll be seven kinds of
blues,
As main' divisions of red.
From I Ittawa, Melbourne and Nome
From torid and  frigid, equator and pole,
From cape, and corner, and bin,
J Inge armies  of  tourists  with  one  common
goal,
Are wending their way to Berlin,
f shilac,  flake  white, and  jet
black.
Pied, purple, and pink, slate and lead:
Tbe tints of the glade, in varified -hade,
When the white frosts of Autumn set in,
Tliey all will be seen, on the boulevards green.
And tbe wide. Stately streets of lierlin.
When William the wonder, has spent all iiis
dunder,
And the ire of bis bliUen divine,
Xo doubt he will say. Veil mein friends, have
your way,
Zidd down, und dring beer In   ze Rhine.
A bum German band, will mount to the stand,
And the world's greatest show will begin,
With lager and fritters, with sauerkraut and
bitters
I le'll feed all the folk at Berlin.
Tiie Russian will dance, the Bedouin prance,
The Frenchman will vaise to tlie flute;
The  Scotsman will skirl, liis pipes thev will
did,
Tbe Pole will perform on the lute,
Voting Johnnie Canuck, show bis wild western pluck
The  Maori tatoo his skin;
And music and mirth,  from the ends of the
earth,
Will resound througii the halls of lierlin.
Then long may the fun. the frolic begun.
Endure in the nations, and when
Tliey think of the lost, may the terrible cost
Show the worth of goodwill among men:
The earth running red, the mountains of dead.
The suffering, sorrow, and sin.
All Europe a bier, tbe lialtic a tear.
May it wash all the blood from lierlin.
"Tbe lierlin Carnival" is from tlle pen ol
Mr. James Cook, Cedar Cottage, South Vancouver. Tli'ingh Mr. Cook is not wtidely
known as a poet, it is quite plain that lie bathe "gift" and the prophetic eye and the patriotism of the true bard. In "The lierlin
Carnival" South Vancouver makes an interesting contribution to the literature of the
Empire.���Ed,

North Fraser Harbor Scheme
Lucidly Explained By Engineer
M yor Leslie is Enthusiastic Regarding Ultimate Prospects Work
Proposed to be Done���Large Areas of Land Will Be Reclaimed���Engineering Conditions Satisfactory
In an interview, Major Leslie, of
Messrs. Davis & Leslie.^ consulting
engineers to the Xorth Fraser liar-
be ,r Commissioners, expressed himself entirely satisfied with the engineering conditions connected with
the project, and was most enthusiastic regarding future prospects.
lie said, however, that from what
he hail heard occasionally it would
appear that the main objects of the
scheme was not entirely understood
by  everyone.
Briefly, he stated, the intention is
by dredging and controling opera-
tiems tei convert the entire length of
the Xorth Arm into a ship canal capable of handling ocean-going steamships, and of providing wharf acom-
modations with the latest modern
facilities of every description, wherever the demand for such arises, and
the natural condition* lend themselves to the purpose.
Practically the entire length of the
Xorth Arm will ultimately become a
fresh-water harbor, and the scheme
includes the provision of large areas
of land���much of which will lu- obtained hy reclamation with dredged
material���to he used as sites for industrial concerns of every kind, ami
the erection of substantial am! fully
equipped buildings te' accommodate
those classes of manufacturers who
desire to rent floor areas. It will also
include, of course, ample rail connections.
The complete scheme as outlined
hy the engineers, would be a very
large one, and when completed woulil
constitute the establishment of a port
second to none on the Pacific Coast.
Work of this magnitude cannot, fi
course, be approached at the outset
as  a  whole.
Such a port can only be built up
hy instalments, as has been done in
the case of other large ports all over
the world.
It is the intention to commence operations with the dredging sufficient
to afford access to ocean-going vessels with a channel wide enough  for

last quarterly communion in October
25 new adult members were received,
23 of these by profession.
The congregation has also every

use' as security for beans it soe.n set
about liuying a -ii,- anil building a
church. This wa- done at a cosl oi
$8,000, of which about $4,000 has been
paiel, the balance being arranged ior
in long leians. Thc congregation now

IS BRITISH COLUMBIA  BANKRUPT
SIR RICHARD McBRIDE has been successful in
raising $ft.(XX),000 so that work on the building
of the Pacific and Great Eastern Railway may proceed. He was forced to act as fiscal agent for tbe
company owning this road because tbe company could
rfot sell one dollar's worth of its bonds���though the
bonds were guaranteed hy the Government of Hritish
Columbia; though each bond virtually bore thc endorsement of every mail in the Province; though each
bond was bached up by every foot of land in the Province. ,;; jf, #       I' I
In other words, liritish Columbia, and all that is
within liritish Columbia, is not worth today in the
eyes of the financiers of the world six million dollars.
Sir Richard got the $6,000,000 for Messrs. Foley,
Welsh and Stewart (owners of the P. G. & E.)
through the good offices of the Dominion Government.
Villi the money came from the Union Hank.
It is likely, therefore, that recent amendments to the
Canadian Rank Act were taken advantage of. These
amendments' provided that in the event of tbe bank
refusing to loan money on certain securities, these securities may be placed before the .Minister of Finance
of the Dominion of Canada. If the securities are
considered good by that officer, the bank may be authorized to advance the needed money, under tbe guarantee of the Dominion Government.
If this conjecture is well based and we have no
statement from any official source to the contrary, then
the I'. G. & E. work will go forward because of the
stability of .Alberta. Manitoba, Ontario and tbe
other Provinces as expressed through the Dominion
Government.
Sir Richard McBride bas made Hritish Columbia
the Weak Sister of Confederation.
If tbe Province of liritish Columbia is broke is it
any wonder tbat widows wee]) in the shadow of ibe
gilded  entrances to defunct  trust companies?
If British Columbia is broke is ii any wonder that
from the cottages ni mir workers comes tbe awful
wail of the unemployed ?

A QUESTION FOR MR. FOSTER
lib', French Government has just placed an order
with a Pittsburg firm for enough horseshoe nails
to keep that linn going night and day for eighteen
months. Tbe Italian Government has just placed an
order with a l'nited States firm for $5,000,000 worth
of saddles, boots and other leather goods. The Australian Government has just placed an order in the
l'nited States for a huge consignment of steel rails.
All these goods could have been made quite as quickly and as cheaply and of equal quality in Canada. This
question suggests itself���Is the Department of Trade
and Commerce at Ottawa doing anything or nothing
to guide orders from friendly or allied Governments

MERELY A REFLECTION
AT Waterloo, the power of Napoleon was for ever
crushed.    What if tbe battle batl resulted in bis
favor ?
The Old Guard would never have been
for the English, Irish and Scotch ba
Belle Alliance.
History tells  ns  that   tbe  stupid   Prussian
Blucher were ol" value at  Waterloo only 1
their brute force and their numbers.
If the Old Guard had not been broken, what ven-
gance the Corsican wouhl have wrought upon his
treacherous Austrian father-in-law: He would
have annihilated Blucher and his Uhlans, wh.. after the
battle, while the British and lhe Russians kept within
their lines, committed , lepra, Ial ions in and aboul the
Cily of Paris which, history tells us. were more hideous than those committed by tbe Kaiser Wllhelm's
forces in Belgium wil bin the past few months.
It was tlle slime of lhe battle field of Water!,,,,
which gave sustenance to the eyeless demon which
through a hundred years bas evolved into the Kaiser-
ism of today.
h
AFTER WATERLOO
OL'TRAGES committed by the German soldicrv
in Belgium are quite in line witb the traditions
of Prussian militarism. After Waterloo the Prussians engaged in a carnival of murder and pillage.
De liourienue, a former secretary to Napoleon, writing shortly after Waterloo, refers to the lust of Bluch-
er's soldiers.
"Taking advantage of this communicative disposition," writes Bourienne in his 'Memoirs of Xapoleon
the Great.' "I made some remarks to Blucher on the
excesses committed by his troops. 'What would you
have me do? I cannot have an eye everywhere, but
I assure you for the future, on your recommendation
I shall cause to be punished severely all disorders that
fall under my notice,' said Blucher when complaint
was made. Spite of these fine promises, however,
his troops continued to give themselves up to the most
revolting excesses. The Prussian troops have, consequently, left in the environs of Paris a remembrance
as that which is retained of Davottt's corps in Ger-
factions. otherwise men would not go to war so
readily as they do. It is not all a matter of cold-blooded slaughter. Of the several millions of men now under arms in Europe, each waiting for his opportunity
to kill or be killed, the great majority are fighting for
no personal reason. It is safe to say tbat of the small
minority who could give an intelligent reason why
they are fighting, most of them learned the reason
since, not before, they went to war. They were not
consulted about the war at all. Most of those who are
killing each other with such zest have no quarrel with
the men they are killing. Under normal conditions
their instincts would lead thein to help rather than to I barbel
injure. But the spirit of war changes all a man's notions of social relationship. The man with whom yon
would have shared your crust and your sympathy today as a fellow mortal becomes tomorrow .an enemy
to be killed at sight, not only without pity, bul with ,a
certain clement of relish and satisfaction, not because
he has done anything tee earn your haired but in-t because war is what it is.
Fritz Krisler is nne of tbe world's greatest violinists,
the world's greatest in tbe opinion of sonic. I le is described as tbe most refined of artists and the kindest
of men. lie was preparing'fnr another tour nf the
world when tbe war broke nut. lie joined Ids Austrian regiment at once and wenl In lhe front. I le -aw
some bard service ai Lemberg, ami vvas finally sent
to the hospital with an injured leg, having been run
over in a charge by some Cossacks, lie has given the
world some of bis impressions anil experiences. The
moment he put the uniform on, he says, all that was
artist in him was swept away, lie felt the soldier all
over. Tbe man whose mission and privilege it was
to charm the world with the witchery of his art, went
forth rejoicing to the work nf slaughter. "More
beautiful antl thrilling music I have never heard," he
writes, "than the hurrahs of the troops at the moment
when the) broke through Ihe lilies of the enemy. . .
ben one fights in tbe midst nf such troops, all souls
elated by the same entbiiiasm, ami when one daily
witnesses such examples nf self-sacrificing heroism,
one feels rejuvenated and invigorated."
Apparently it mattered not tn Krisler that history
would bold bis country responsible for having precipitated the greatest calamity thai ever afflicted the
world. Ile bad nothing to dn with cause-- or conse-
quences. As a soldier it was his duty to tight when
somebody gave ihe command, and as a soldier he
could give himself up to tbe elemental emotions arons-
eel by tiie conflict without any reference to questions
��� if right or wrong. Was Bernhardt right after all in
speaking of "the inevitableness, the idealism and the
blessing of war?" Listen to Richard Le Gallicnne?

Don't Delay Your
Dental Work���
4679
Delavs in anything are extremely dangerous; particularly so in dental work.
By not having tbat tooth attended to at once, you are sure to suffer for it later
on. A decayed tooth should be removed or treated and filled now, for if you
delay it is bound to get worse and will affect the teeth adjoining it. Not only
this, but if you lose your teeth by not attending to them, it will be necessary
for you to have artificial ones made, and no dentist yet has been able to make
teeth better than nature. A little attention now will save you teeth, worry
and money. Dr. Hall makes all examinations free of charge, and will tell you
the exact condition of your teeth.    Don't delay ; have them attended to now.

was one eef llii-rslaelt's own pupils,
one Krementz, a Bavarian who had
taken the Imperial gold medal at last
year's bomb-dropping contest at Kiel,
with a record e,f forty-six out oi a
possible lifly bull's-eyes while flying
at the rate of fifty miles per hour,
Krementz, dark, phlegmatic but thin
anel wiry, stood in lhe shadow nf the
monoplane's vast wing when a sudden movement of the bridge of the
warship  caught  his  sombre  eye.     Ile
stepped oul  e.f  the  shade ami  st 1
wailing. A iii'eiiieul later a yening
officer with an eager and excited air
breathlessly accosted him:
"lleiniich. the leeiikeiul reports a
large English ship 'iff lhe port quarter about ten miles away. Il's sure
1.1 be ihe 'Victoria!' "
"Nothing else! Well, wc are ready
f.er her," replied Krementz,
"The order is, that ynu may get
away at nnce!''
The monoplane's launching crow
appeared as if by magic, each man
taking his Station in silence. Krementz put nn his headpiece and gloves
while nu tlle superstructure eiflicers
came aft ami looked'down, The ship's
spenl had imt lessened, but Krementz niiled that shc was turning tu
port see thai the monoplane would
face llle western breeze. In another
moment lie had taken his seat and
grasped the steering wheel. The RIO-
me nt nf launching the giant monoplane with its deadly freightage of
live hundred pounds of oliiiilc suspended Immediately beneath Kfe-
inentz's feet in tlle shape of a four-
fool bomb was always one of breath-*
le'ss and excited interest to every man
mi board, and general conversation
was invariably suspended until the
feat  had  heen  accomplished,
For thirty seconds the propeller
whirled noiselessly/ then the wheels
eef the truck began to revolve, and
the machine, which had seemed pant
of the ship's self before, slid out upon
lhe tracks. As she ncared the end
of the slim sieel structure il sank
beneath her, and wilh a quick birdlike lift -the greal Hying machine
soared aloft. An irrepressible cheer
broke out from the throats nl tlle
eleven hundred seamen and officers
��� ef ilu- "Hermanus."
"Now we sehall see what the new
theories are worth!" exclaimed tlie
drunken Aduniral Vein Grottzen, without taking his bleary gray eyes frum
iln- monoplane as sin circled aloft.
Baron Greuze of lhe Naval Hoard,
a young, portly, rosy-cheeked' 111:111,
laughed as he replied:
"Heretofore, my dear Admiral, it
has heen theory but today il is practice, anil, look yem, we put now into
practice lhe first rule of aerial warfare���we launch our machine before
the  enemy  launches  his!"
"Well, we shall see whal we shall
~ee." replied  the  admiral.
The "Hermanus" was now speeding ahead1 al some forty knots ail
hour, while the monoplane, after
making twee wide circles to gain
height, was flying a half mile lo star-
hoard somewhat in advance eif the
warship and rapidly distancing her.
After live minutes had passed Krementz was seen to turn In the southward, rising perhaps live hundred feet
until the aluminum flyer resembled a
gray gull sweeping into the strata
of haze that stretched- across the sky.
"Ila! It will lie all over before
we get within vision, 1 am afraid,"
remarked the merry little baron, "lie
sheeiild  have waited for us!"
"If he gets into the clouds lie will
perhaps miss the Englishman. These
birdmen cannot navigate by compass
yel." added the admiral.
"Perhaps that is his idea," suggested the baron, "lie may intend to
steal upon them behind that gray
curtain."
The English warship suddenly
flashed up into their visiem against
a low-lying bank of neu'tral-tinted
haze lhat clung to the horizon, a
blue-white vessel, pyramidal in effect, a floating mountain eef solid
steel.
"The 'Victoria'' It is she!" sprang
from the lips of many of the officers
on the superstructure, and a number
from the groups upon the gun decks
I elow showed that even anion.; the
crew ihe vessel had! been recognized'.
"She is coning along at a fifty
knot clip!" commented Captain Keller, approaching the admiral. "Can
be liit her?"
"II he eha-.s im! .: e shall have iomi
work een our ha ids," remarked the
baron.    "She   has   sixteen   thousand
and twenty-one

admiral, gnawing his grizzled moustache as In- surveyed iln- oncoming
ship ihrough his marine glasses. Afler a careful scrutiny he saiel:
"Gentlemen, if Krementz gels her
our occupation is genu-. Tin- gentle
art eef mama warfare will languish
anil vanish from off iln- earth ii one
man can destroy ihat magnificent fabric!"
"IK- cannot miss her!" eried the
captain shrilly. "See! She is as steady-
as a rock! There is no motion lee her
stacks whatever! There In- is! Look!"
At the instanl the monoplane appeared, sweeping down toward the
"Victoria" in a gradual slant from a
height eef some hundred feet. The
eyes of every man was glued lo his
glasses, and in all lhe ship not a
voice broke wilh even a whisper the
sudden hush. Xo sign came from thc
English ship lo denote thai she had
sighted iln dread terror that was
hurtling down from ihe clouds upon
her. From her twee rear stacks dense
black streamers of sninkc were pouring, indicating a suddenly increased
consumption eel nil fuel, but these
wire al! of ilie evidences of life that
she showed.
"lie-in! They are see busy watching us that tliey see him not!" snap-
peel the baron, as his voice disturbed
tlie stillness like a sudden shot. Many
of ihe officers bestowed queer stares
upon lhe little noblemen, then nervously took up the tense watching.
The captain leaned' far oul e.ver the
bridge rail as if trying to project
himself intei the coming event. The
monoplane sped hawklike upon her
prey, swooping without a dip or
curve until it seemed to the straining
eyes that she had overflown her
mark; then, as she turned and flashed
1 gleam of silvery radiance from her
wide wing, they saw a streak of light
fall from her, a brief, sharp glint that
a'lished in the inly smoke pouring
from the "Victoria's" slacks like a
gleaming feather from the breast of
some ocean bird, and' then she darted
aloft   with  incredible  swiftness.
The space of time that followed the
falling of the bomb as indicated by
a slop-watch in the hands of Lieutenant Kuichstcin was precisely two
second's, hut il seemed minutes before llie appalling result followed. Tlie
cameras snapped each feature as it
developed but no two men could have
agreed upon particulars. The ebony
smoke was cut off as a ribbon is
severed by the shears, then the "Victoria's" rear slack shot aloft three
hundred feet into the air; the forward turret, witb a queer, lifelike action, turned over, apparently slowly,
twice and plunged into the sea over
tlle bow. Then a black chasm opened-
amidships, a mass of disintegrated
matter resembling charred straw or
other fragmentary refuse, impossible
lo identify, but which was, of course,
the machinery, llie thirteen hundred
men and the interior fittings of this
matchless warship, was spewed upward from the crater, and a tower of
cadmium-yellow smoke mounted audi
began lee spread like an enormous
palm at the tup. Its base clung tn
the sea tor another instant, and lifting, revealed lhe crimson flag of
England just sinking beneath the
waves. There was a tense, breathless space of silence, and then there
came thc roar of lhe explosion���or
rather a series of mingled roars, six
.shocks in all, and' a blast of air that
shook the Hags and signals of the
"I lermanus."
ll seemed incredible, so swiftly anil
completely hade the English ship been
demolished, anil tlle glasses remained
glued to many an eye for several seconds before tlle men looked at one
another, No eme spoke. The baron
after a space pointed a shaking forefinger, anil Keller, following the motion, observed Krementz making a
vasi dvtour far to the neirthward.
"Gotlt in lliminel! I had forgotten
al!   about   the   fellow!"   lie   growled.
Two eif the photographers began
hastily tei make preparations to repair tei the developing room. The admiral, with a face from which all
color had vanished, stepped! toward
Keller and parted liis lips lei speak,
lips thai revealed that he was deeply
moved. He seemed tc; lind difficulty
in voicing his words and he Inhaled
twice wilh evident efforl. The captain gazed at him curiously as if beholding some marvel.
Suddenly from far aloft came a
queer rasping yet hollow sound, not
the throaty call of the lookout but
an agonized1 anil 'horror-stricken
shriek of alarm, inarticulate but replete, even in its echo along the metal
sides of the turrets with choking fear.
Every eye aboard was turned upward
to behold the lookout, a grizzled Swa-
bian seaman, holding his arms aloft
and frantically waving them as he
shrieked out Iiis cry of warning, and
every eye followed' the lookout's
startled gaze only to start in dismay
and petrify into an icy horror.
There, against the afternoon sky,
perhaps three miles astern, hung an
oblong blot, seemingly swinging motionless in the blue, yet every eye
on that ship discerned that it was
approaching with a speed that was
sweeping death nearer every second
���a large aeroplane, larger than that
of the "Hermanus," and even at that
distance the missile wilh which it was
freighted was plainly visible to the
naked eye. a bright egg-shaped object suspended by invisible tackle beneath the dark plane.
The admiral's shaggy brows lifted'
as the utterance with which be bad
been struggling formed into coherent
speech.
"Achl   Gottfried, after all, the Englishman   saw   us   first!       That     was
launched before we sighted her!"

SIX   REASONS
WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE SUPERIORITY OF
CREOSOTED WOOD
BLOCK PAVEMENTS
ITS DURABILITY���Does not crumble or pulverize under the densest traffic; second only to granite
blocks
ITS EASE OF REPAIR- No difficulty being experienced in removing and replacing the blocks; no
expensive plant or skilled workmen required.
ITS SANITARY QUALITIES���Creosote being a
high'y antiseptic and waterproofing material instantly destroys all germs, prevents the absorption of
street filth and consequent decay.
ITS NOISELESSNESS���The rattle and bang of
vehicles passing over its smooth surface absorbed
and muffled till the quiet of the dirt toad is obtained.
ITS DUSTLESSNESS���Does not pulverize; the
heaviest traffic only pounding down the wood fibres
to offer the greater resistance.
TTS CLEANLINESS���Having a smooth surface and
being watcrprooi it does not differ in this respect
from asphalt.
We manufacture blocks of the highest possible
standard, the verv best materials only being used and
in the DOMINION WOOD BLOCKS we believe
we produce an article chat has no equal.

As Mr. I lane-' letter is likely to
create a very wrong impression of
South Vancouver affairs j trusl you
will granl a little space for a few facts
concerning the work eh me in South
Vancouver this year and the number
fi nun employed;,
l'i> to October 15 the water department alone expended $109,685.25
this year, a very large proportion of
which has heen ieer labor For thc
month ended October 15 the payroll
of the water department amounted
tn $11,312.25 and during that time
over 300 wire employed on waterworks extensions and were' paiel $3.00
a dav. The exlra gangs mentioned
by Mr. I Ian,.- al $2.00 a day have
not been pul on; but the suggestion
was made iee liml work for men nol
capable of earning $.VIX) a day. This
suggestion mel with opposition, however, and  may  met  he  carried  out.
The municipal payroll at the present time, exclusive' of the regular permanent staff, includes the names of
about "511 num. During the two
week- ended October 15, the following men were engaged in the various
wanl gangs : Ward I. 57 men: Warel
2. 28; Waul 3, 106; War.l 4. 37; Wanl

imt  counting  the  nun  employed  by
[ the   Dominion   Creosoting   Company
land  Columbia   Bitulithic   Limited  on
paving contracts.    It should be stated,  however,   that  among    the    815
names  em   the   present   payroll   there
may be some duplications by reason
of the changing of the gangs every
few   elays;  hut   those  duplications  do
not exceep 10 per cent, of the whole.
I  have not the ligures en' the ward

two  weeks   in   September   the   ward
workmen   received   $7,254.45,   and   the
waterworks   men   $5,123.40.       During
the  past   two  weeks   the   waterworks
paid out $5,188.85 in wages.
From the above figures it will be
noted that South Vancouver has not
been idle this year, especially when
it is remembered that the twee paving
contractors mentioned have had in
their employ in Snuth Vancouver

The ceimpany owns a fleet of motor

that all who want nul coal at $5.00 per

Discussing business prospects, Mr.
Kuk -aid that there was every reason
for business nun looking with optimism io the future. The patronage
afforded his company since opening an

There was a period of absolute stillness, an appreciable pause during
which the men drew breath. It
seemed, in that swiftly passing instant ihat. after all. nothing had happened, yet in ihat twinkling of time
everything had happened and the vast
steel fabric of the "Hermanns" was
disintegrating, dissolving, wilh anitm-
ifold movement thai permitted many
instinct phases to bc observed by
different beholders who never recorded their observations,

saw lhe forward turret crumble like
a dry ant hill, its gigantic twenty-four
inch  guns melting like wax in a fur-
lie.n lhat it seemed as if giant but invisible hands were tearing at the vessel from many direction*. A gunner
between decks, reeling toward a bulkhead fnr support, found' himself walking a narrow strip of steel with serrated edges like a tremendous saw,
with an Infinity of bluish space sur-
rieiiuding him and a yawning black
chasm below, but before he had' taken
a step he flew into nothingness.
The entire stern quarters of the
'Hermanus" soared aloft, yet spitting
out in every direction masses of men,
metal, stores, and ammunition; again,
as this hundred foot block of steel
flew upward it, too, crumbled, as if in
a crucible, and1 fell into fragments,
yards away, into the boiling sea. A

unseen scythe had mowed along the

"lie can lire but one shot!" replied
the captain. "If he misses us lie will

11 was quite plain that the aviator
was capable of following closely each
sharp turn made by the warship; in
fact, it was evident to many of the
officers, who were themselves practically bird'men, (hat he had the ship
at his mercy and was merely amusing
himself before he delivered the coup
de grace. Down among the crew men
were muttering prayers, others cursed
loudly, lifting aloft menacing lists in
impotent threats. Others, as if frozen with terror, stared up at the destroyer in pallid silence. The ship
turned and1 doubled, but the thing
hung in her wake as the weasel clings
to tlie trail of a hare.
A sharp, (bin report rang out from
thc lee of the after turret and a tall
dark officer was seen to be carefully
aiming a Mauser for a second shot,
but before the third had echoed1 from
the metal sides the aeroplane darted
forward with inqreased speed. In
three seconds its shadow fell upon
the superstructure and moved alnng
the ship's length at twice her velocity.
As it enveloped' the narrowing forward deck in gloom the egg-shaped
bomb was seen te> .slant down, a
gleam of shimmering lighl from beneath the aviator's feet. Straight as
an arrow from a bow it fell, growing
larger tn the terrified eyes hclnw until
a whistling was audible which grew
into a moaning as lhe missile plunged
into  Ihe  fifty-foot    mid-ship    smoke
nace, and as he turned a dull, dazed'
gaze upon Admiral Von Grottzen, -the
left leg of that officer disappeared as
if by magic. The captain, who himself felt no sensation and heard no
sound as this amazing spectacle imprinted itself upon his senses, stared
stupidly as the admiral fell to the
deck and- was surrounded in an instant by a great spreading pool of
crimson. Lieutenant Kleppermaii
gaped in incredulous amazement as
the heads of six men vanished., leaving their headless bodies standing,
erect and' ticmbling, at the port rail,
their blood spinning forth in regular
jets. He also saw the forward deck
split lengthwise, noiselessly, and curl
up like a carpel, parting to right and
left, and rolling up in two metal
scrolls. Ile heard nothing, fnr his

'P.. Krementz speeding toward ihe
"Hermanns" il had seemed that lhe
German warship had executed a series of peculiar shifting movements as
he had seen things done in the Comic
moving pictures, startling, inscrutable transformations that seemed unreal and that would prove to be due
to his disordered vision, but a mile
away from the ship he was tilled
sharply upward by a shaft of air that
seemed to tear at his machine even
as it thrust it up and back. Every
wire in the monoplane shrieked and
snarled as this gust hurled him upward, and before he had regained his
equilibrium lhe "Hermanns" had become dusl and had gnne tn jnin tlle

speech or movement beyond' a gesture that indicated' thirst, and the
fisherman, instantly comprehending
