USED BY THE ENEMY. General C.beriils, willing in the ‘Echo do Paris,’ says he has tangible proof that the Germans are using not only the dum-dum, but even explosive bullets. In. a letter which be had received from a cavalry field officer, who was slightly wounded in tho fighting in tho north, the following occurs: — Here is a fact which I ran prove by showing the envelope nf the bullet, a we.ter-bott-le pierced and shattered by the explosion, and a. report signed by the man who was hit, and hy his witnesses. On October 1,0, at BrenviJiler, in the, woods to the west of Doullcns, a trooper of the fifth. Company of the 14th Territorial Readment, came up to me, and said; “This -morning I was hit by .abullet. My pack caught tire on my back, and f only just had time to put it or, the ground when almost at once another bul'et struck my haversack, which was below my pack. The bullet went right- through the contents of the haversack, burst, and wounded me in the thigh. When I looked at the wound, this bullet and the- envelope dropped out of my trousers.'’ As a matter of fact, the first bullet which sot fir? to the man's pack was an explosive one. So was the second, which hit against the zinc bottle in his haversack, and fortunately exploded before striking the man himself. This, is proof enough.”
