GERMANS SHELL ENGLISH COASTAL TOWNS. OVER 500 CASUALTIES. A German squadron of eight warships made n raid on the past coast of -England on I61I1 inst., shelling Scarborough, Hartlepool anil Whitby/ Con siderable daini^e was done to buildings, nod 110 persons wore killed 'and -105 injnfed. The Hritish patrolling squadron endeavored to cut off the raiders bat they made off at full .speed ami escaped in the mist. ' Except for the regrettable loss of life the raid is- of little consequence.

On the other hand, it has given a great stimulus to enlistment in the United Kingdom.

Flace tho Inverted heads in this trench as com pactly together as practicable.
