THE HUNS' ATROCITIES.
& SOLDIER'S OPINIONS.
Some idea of the feeling of the people of England towards the Germans may be gathered from a letter received recently by Mr H. O Bill from the head of his company in Bristol, Major AE M. Norton D.8.0. As hie rank and decorut'on show, Major Norton writes not as a emlian unused to war, bat as an old campaigner,
His letter rung:—"lf you people in New Zealand realised tor or>6 minute what hell hounds and monsters these Germans are, I guess you would never speak to one of the same natien again. You are too good to the swine out your side. I am not saying all this because of what I have read in the paper, but from what I have seen in the hospitals here, and beard from personal friends who have been eye , witnesses of deeds that South Sea Islanders of 100 years ago would have shuddered at. I have myself seen men with both hands chopped oS. men who have had their eyes gouged oat. And the atrocities committed on young girls and infante would have made '-Jack the Hipper" faint. You cannot for one moment imagine ( one-hundredth pa«t away out there what we do here. If you did you would pot wonder vrby everyoae is willing to aaorifioe everything and anything so long as it will speed the end of this diabolical nation."
