I llda't venture out ot the house at the jlme, but the nrart night I thought I roald ;,'o oct and see what damage pad beon done. ' When It became dark I left the house accordingly and mixed -with the trowd, which consisted largely of Gor- 0ao I went from one place to no- rther to see what oar "straffing" had iccompUsbed. Naturally I avoided ppeaktag to anyone. If a man or (tojnen appeared about to speak to ae, I fatt turned my head and looked or Balked away to- some other direction. t nrast have been taken for an nn- joelal sort of Iridividnal a good many times, sad if I had encountered the : wax person twice I suppose my con- . ictet might have aroused suspicion. I h«d a first-class observation of the ilatnage that was really done by our bombs. One bomb had landed very pe»r the mnrn railroad station and li ; It hod been only thirty yards nearer ' would barve connletely demolished It. 49 the station was undoubtedly our airman's objectlTe I was very much Impressed with the accuracy of hU j pirn. It Is by no means an easy thing ] to bit a building from the air when ' jroo are going at, anywhere from fifty to-one hundred mfles an hour and are being scot at from beneath from a | dozen different angles--unless, of course, you are taking one of those desperate chances and flying so low that you cannot very well mls yonr mark and the Huns cant very well Tiss you either! I walked by the station and mingled with the crowds which stood in the entrances. They paid no more attention to me than they did to real Belgians, and the fact that the light-: were all out in this city at night raad* It-Impossible anyway for anyone to get as good a look at mo as II it had been light. · Imring the time that I was In tlU city I suppose I wandered from ono end of It to the other. In one place-, where the German staff had its headquarters, a huge German flag nun; from the window, and I think I would have gfven ten years of my life 10 have stolen It. Even If I could have i paQed It down, however, it would have , been Impossible for me to have concealed It, and to have carried it away with me as a souvenir, therefore would Kru been out of the question. "A* I went along the street one nlgnt malady standing on the comer stopped me and spoke to me. My first impale, ot coarse, was to answer her, explain- j tog that I couM not understand, but 1 . ·topped myself to time, pointed to loy I ears and mouth and shook my bend. | Indicating that I was deaf and dumb, I ·ad she nodded understandingiy aadj walked, on. Incidents o£ that kind were not nonsaul, and I was always In fuar I that the time weald come when some | Jjxzulaitiv* and suspicious German ·would encounter me and not be so ·Mllr satisfied. There-*ie many tilings that I saw tn thla dty wnlch. for various reasons, it Is ImjxwOde for me to relate until alter Uw war Is error. Some of thara, X^atak, win create more surprise than thu incidents I am fcee to reveal now.

On* night I walked boldrr across »· park. I heard footsteps behind me and turning round saw two German soldiers. I slaved «p a trifle, to let ttem set ahead at me.
