ROTTERDAM. Sept. 19. Much of the
news ot the war gets Into the German
press In the form of letters which officers
and privates at the front send to their
families. Written by men who describe
what they actually sea and feel, soma
strange' mixtures of sensations experi
enced and actually encountered result
documents of strong appeal and wide hu

the Koelnlsche Zettung- of September 16:

to the ground for cover, and this time I
