KAISER'S SECOND SON ALSO A LOOTER.
Prince Eitel Fritz, the Kaiser's second son, on leaving tho Chateau de Vivier, at Choisy-au-Bac, where he had taken up his quarters, wrote on the door a few lines expressing regret at not. finding the proprietors at home when " he did them the honor" to vieit their domain. The Prince, it is stated, took with him a waggon-load of furniture and valuables which had excited his artistic attention. Account* continue to be received of the .destructive propensities of the Germans in occupied territory. It is related that when they arrived at Condesur-Es-caut they tried to pull down a statue erected there to the memory of the popular French General Poillon© De Saint Mars, a- former colonel of the 69th Line Regiment. For this purpose they harnessed 50 men with ropes to the statue, which, however, they were unable to move. Loving their tempers, they then fired hundreds of ehots at the figure, but the. bullets only flattened themselves against the solid bronze with equally little effect. The Municipality of Conde has been asked to leave the marks of the German bullets on the statue as a standing testimony to German impotence to break French resistance.-—Beuter.
