HERO OF THE AIR. PEGOUD'S ACHIEVEMENTS. GERMAN AIRSHIP DESTROYED. The Dally Chronicle Special Correspon dent, Philip Glbbs, wrote from Paris oa January 26:— The heroism of French aviators will make a thrilling chaptcr of adventure.

The spell of secrecy may now, however, be broken in favor of I'cgoud, the famous air man who was first to loop the loop and per formed a series of aerial acrobatics which startled great crowds last year at Brook lands and Hcndon. Pegoud has lost none of his audacity, and since the beginning of the war has done many gallant and reckless things over the battlefields In France.

He discovered that she had many talents, was a rare dancer of the wild, uncouth dances of the East, and could draw with a wonderful sense of por traiture. Her pictures of Silvester should have gone to 'Punch,' but her portraits of Gabriellc were full of feeling. One day, when she Imd been sitting upon the arm of his clmir, using his broad back for an easel, she asked liim, apropos nothing at all, if he were in love,' and when lie looked at her astonished she seemed insist ent.

Then they turned a Maxim on us. but no ono was hit, for wo had then got fairly deep, and could easily crouch under cover.

ARMY HORSES. TRAINING THEM FOR BATTLE. The almost human« instinct -posfleoeed by trained. cavalry and artillery horses provides, a striking illustration of equine intelligence. They understand the words of command quite as well as their riders and drivers, and will answer to the regular calls In- the most perfect manner. One has only to watch cavalry executing a turning nvrvement- to realise how perfect, the understanding Is between the horscs and the men. and after a few lessons In charging* the horses will prick up their ears tho moment ? they hear the word, and throw themselves Into the- rush as wholeheartedly ns their riders. Ofr coupsp, the animals hav* to go through a strict course of ?training' before they reach this pitch of p*-r4?ction.
