"I was in Dusseklorf when (.he English airman visited Hie town for the second' t imc. It was a splendid feat. Ho took the Germans by surprise. Soldier.s seeing a hostile* air-craft high up in the air shot at. it continually, until suddenly the aeroplano began to glide lower and lower. People were made wth joy and shouted 'Hurrah.' Soldiers got ready-to catch the arcoplane as ii fell, when suddenly, from a height of a hundred to two hundred metres, '.he. airman threw several bombs, one. of which reached its goal, the Keppelin "shed in which there was an air cruiser, the- pride of Diisseldorf, which had received orders to join the army in France that afternoon. In spite of my being a good distance away, I heard the explosion, saw smoke whirling high into the air, and 1 also saw the airman, escape in the common eonfusion. There really remained of the fine airship nothing but ruins and ;u-.hes, but the papers published next, day that the Zeppelin shed had been slightly damaged. Nothing was said about the four officers who were killed and the many who were wounded, but. Dusseldorf knew in spite of the Censor, and .1 cannot describe the nervousness thatfollowed. People began to doubt if all that the papers wrote about their army havingdaily victories was really true."—' Times' telegram.
