The following aro three short stories of French soldiers, snapshots of life In the trenches and In the firing line on the Yser and elsewhere, published In the London Daily Mall. They are vivid pictures of three different kinds of lighting. FIVE NIGHTS OF TORTUHE. A few yards to the east of the road bridge over the railway, at the summit of the crest, stands the German redoubt. Flanking works on either side and the long, wicked-looking muzzles of nulck-firin? stuns mako It seem very formidable. Down the slope not 60 yards away are the French trenches. But those 50 yards are terribly hard to win. Thr slope Is a treach erous slippery bank of mud, up which the attacking party can only venture at a walk while the German bullets make havoc In their ranks. Six times have the bravo French soldiers rushed to the attack, and six times havo they reached the top qf the bank, with their numbers so reduced that It was Im possible to hold...

GENERAL FRENCH AND DE WET. BOERS* ADMIRATION.

It has been recorded that when towns or railway-stations were captured our men would And allusions to French chalked 'J-e wall. Thus: 'We are not fighting the English — they don't count; we are only lighting the 'French.'

The young Belgian soldier In the worn, muddy uniform, who came into the cafe in an old town In Northern France, where we sat at our* scanty meal, had a tiny -«og tucked under his arm (wrote th© Dally Chronicle correspondent from Northern France on January 6). He left a little of his soup In the plate, and held the dog to the table to finish It.

HARMLESS ZEPPELINS. IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. BARK WORSE THAN BITE. Says the official report:-— The two Zeppelins wero oasily put to flight by the guns of the Undaunted and tho Arcthusa. This is a highly interesting statement after all that has been said and written und hinted of the naval capabilities of the Zeppetln. That sentence in the official announcement brings to a pitiable close the last chapter in thc^ chequered history of these monsters of the air. Every other chapter cumc to a disap pointing conclusion, and the ucrmans pro mised us tho climax in the last. Said cli max wan to be the destruction of several of our big battleships by Zeppelins.

The Vatican has not yet received any information on tills subject. At the Prussian Legation at the Vatican it is declared that the report can be neither de nied nor confirmed. In view, however, of tlio conduct of the German authorities in Belgium the correspondent declares such an extraordinary act of violence would not be surprising.
