JOY IN GERMANY I :1JNIY STORY OF EFFECT OF THE LAST ZEPPELIN RAID I "A COLD SWEAT OF TERROR-" AL description, of last Saturday night s teppeiiii raid which will he read with rtnbounded joy in Germany and great P'ffiusement in this country a pilars iu the Leipzig ^s'eueste Naehriehten." It epeaks of (I-e-astation on an un- heard-of ecak', of many towns in ruins, t great fires in London; but not a word it say aliout the disaster to L 21 at Cuffk-y. Here is the story :â "A most welcome message of joy I An air raid on England witli thi-, co-operation \)f an unprecedented' number of air erniwrs! Several naval and army air Squadrons have bOWn t he land of our worst foe with bomhs. catising devastation on an Unheard of scale, and spreading a horror bordering on in-a riity everywhere from the north-easternmost extremity of the Eng- lish coast to the south-western districts of 1 ,Lu> "WE CAN PICTURE-" We can picture the desolation that Jaust reign in Colchester, Ipswich, Sheer- Hess, Margate, and Ramsgate, where day and night the work for England's Army and Navy goes on, and where the German air weapon has now completed its pitiless task of destruction. "liondon, ahoye all, has been most genorouidy dealt with in the way of bombs. Our unapproachable king of the air distinctly saw the immense flames rising np into the night sky as with many a mighty crash blocks of houses were torn asunder. Filled with proud satisfaction, our heroes oould wend their way home- ward because they knew that their Ixunbs had done excellently#well. Ond England's constantly improved once again proved a glorious failure. How the inhabitants of Dover and Folkestone m'lst have trembled, how the holiday-makers at Brighton and Hastings must. have broken out in a (-old sweat of terror when the iron thunderstorm broke over their heads! LONDON'S TERROR. In London the terror at the Zeppelin attacks is indescribable.' Thus only yes- terday wrote a friend who had spoken with neutral witnesses of the German air raids. Once again the merciless lords of the Island Empire have been filled with this umauny, overwhelming horror, and wherever their stricken, hunted eves turn they behold'fresh pidur of ghastly de- struction. "We must see to it, however, that their fe.ar6 are constantly aggravated. They must find not a moment's security any- whpre. They must be made to comprehend that their insular aloofness belongs to the past. and that we are in a position to clutch hy the throat the unscrupulous in- cendiaries of the world conflagration. Even though the whole of London had to be beaten into one gigantic heap of ruins we must hammer it into their addled brains with utter ruthatssness that the German people have the iron will to over- thio.w their worst foe." THE LOST L 21. The Munich cues to Nhricbten n i finds consolation, for the los6 of L 21 in the fact that the wreck will be of no use" to us, and the .secret "⢠of Ger- 'many's airships will be preserved. It ;sa.rs "One airship the fewer! We need not 'consider this loss any more seriously than that. of a cruiser or a torpedo-boat. She did her duty, and in its fulfilment. her cpew perished. A confused heap of bent and battered metal lying somewhere on English soil re- presents the first airship destroyed in Eng- land after an aerial war of more than a year and a half.
