SHELLING DEFENCELESS TOWN. CALAIS, November 25. The townsfolk of Axmentieres (France) have lodged a protest against the bombardment of the town. There are no military in the town, yet 100 civilians have already been killed and injured by shell fire. CIVILIAN - LIFE IN BELGIUM. (London * Times * and Sydney * Sun ’ Services.) LONDON, November 24. Two thousand Belgians remaining at Ostend are threatened with famine. The Germans are commandeering all food, and have forbidden citizens to leave their houses except on specific business. If they appear in the streets after seven in the evening, not more than three are permitted to converse together in the streets. The penalty is death. A favorite pastime of the Germans is io make Belgian boys compulsorily drunk on champagne and laugh at their antics. Horses and cows are paid for in receipts which, translated, mean two kisses or two girls in Berlin.
