A ZEPPELIN NIGHT'S ENTERTAINMENT. GERMAN TALE OF T E RAID. The German Gov am m e n t wireless stations yesterday transmitted to the German Em bass) in Washington a ludicrous a< i ouut of the last Zeppeiin raid on England The impu dent mendacity <>f 'be thing can be judged by the people of the towns mentioned, not ana of wlni h [apart from the I lumber) is within t lie area ol the raids a described in the pltish official statements. A similar account has been given to the German public in the press. It runs: Competent German author ities give the following details regarding the airship attack a gainst England during the night of January 31 — February I: — Liverpool.—The pii nc i pa 1 nbjectivei were the docks and harhoui factories The bombs b ,d a satisfactory effect, since a large flra wai visible when the airships returned A large num ber ol bridges in the dock establishments wet'e so heavily dam aye.I, that they were useless (or the time being.

A stable with UOO horses was destroyed by fire,and the horses and their Canadian guards are said to have perished The B 10th line and the Yeo ward line suffered heavy dam age* through the partial destruc tion of their docks. Fui the r more, the neig h b 0 ur 1 11 g dry docki and machine factories, the Uirkenhead Dry Docks, and angina and boiler works were completely destroyed. Altogeth er more than 200 houses were destr iyed by bombs and fires. In Bootle, at the mouth of the Mersey, a powder factory was completely destroyed. In Cre we, to the southeast of Liver poo!, the railway was so dam aged that traffic to London was interrupted. Mancheslc r —Two blast furnaces and two ironworks were completely destroyed, whilst others were damaged. Sheffield and Nottingham.— In Sheffield a blast furnace was almost completely destroyed, as also w re two military sheds In Nottingham, where a battery was silenced after having shell ed the German airships without success, one ammunition Factory lies werehtavil) dam. d Most damage was in Sheffield and Not! ham, where the esti mate I at up to £400,000 by the London insurance companies.

Furthermore, the cruiser Carolina and the de strovers Eden and Nith weie sunk in Vie Humber. The Car olina sank within six minutes, 3Iof the crew being killed, 58 wounded, and 47 drowned. Manchester Gaardian THE HAIO BRAND There is a story about Abe Lincoln and General Grant, which most people have heard. After the failure ofrsevera I com manding officers, Grant had been given command of the army, and began to show evidence of his capacity. A worker in the temperance cause deem ed it Ins duty to warn the I'resi dent that (irant was not a total abstainer—that, in fact, he had been known to take an occasion al glass of whisky, 'is that so?" inquired Abe,"Well I wish you would find out the brand he uses, for I may have to send some of it to those other generals." There is a visible connection be tween whisky and the new Com mander in -Chief of the British army in France that must be disturbing to some folk. Ilaig is a great name in the Scotch whis ky trade. It is the proud toast of the HaigS that they have been distillers for centuries. Sir Douglas Haig is one of the pro prietors of the old Haig concern. More, than that, he isa director of the company which produces this particular brand of Moun tain Dew, and the management, evidently with a keen eye to business, are making use of his n, me in their advertisements Whether anybody has warned Lord Kitchener of the danger does not appear. The Journ li of Commerce. and Treasurer of the Relief Furd informs us that Mi. H Melhado has been elected chairman of the Committee in succession to 1 he late Lt. Col Slack, He also informs us 1 tint 11 has been decided to hold a Flag Hay to take place on the day of eniDarkation ol the Second Contingent. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of Flags will be appropriated to the Belgian Relief Fund and ihe remainder to the Mntish Honduras Contingent fund A Hand Contest is also contemplated and the proceeds arising from Ihe 1 oniest will be divided in the same manner.

Much of the German Army. as I have seen with my own eyes in examining the uniforms of the German prisoners and deserters, is now being clothed in material not at all suitable for Winter. I am not an expert in clothing, but the cloth seems to llack wool. It has a hard dry C, y ] feeling.

THE HAIO BRAND
There is a story about Abe
Lincoln and General Grant,
which most people have heard.
After the failure ofrsevera I com
manding officers, Grant had
been given command of the
army, and began to show evi-
dence of his capacity. A worker
in the temperance cause deem
ed it Ins duty to warn the I'resi
dent that (irant was not a total
abstainerthat, in fact, he had
been known to take an occasion
al glass of whisky, 'is that so?"
inquired Abe,"Well I wish you
would find out the brand he uses,
for I may have to send some of
it to those other generals."
There is a visible connection be
tween whisky and the new Com
mander in -Chief of the British
army in France that must be
disturbing to some folk. Ilaig is
a great name in the Scotch whis
ky trade. It is the proud toast
of the HaigS that they have
been distillers for centuries. Sir
Douglas Haig is one of the pro
prietors of the old Haig concern.
More, than that, he isa director
of the company which produces
this particular brand of Moun
tain Dew, and the management,
evidently with a keen eye to
business, are making use of his
n, me in their advertisements
Whether anybody has warned
Lord Kitchener of the danger
does not appear.
