GERMAN CRUISER SUNK OFF HELIGOLAND.

London, September 9. A letter from a navy man aboard H.MS. Lion says; "It was a fine sight to see the Lion demolish a Garmaa cruiser off Heligoland. Some of the cruiser's shots came near the Lion. Then the Lion, who was leading the Una, signalled " open fire." She turned slowly and majestically and fired a broadside. Up went a cloud of srr.oke and steam from the German *ft- The funnel was scan to be "at rakish angle, and a huge rent appeared the length of her aide. As she was sinking she hauled down her en sign., but as we steamed to the rescue she huuled up the flag again and reopened fire. The Lion turned and guve her five shots from her turret guns, and the cruiser disappeared amidst ;a shower of splinters, smoke and fire. The incident occupied just forty fiy«> minutes."
