One of the ex-kaiser’ s castles has
been put to good use for the time
being, writes a correspondent in
the Manchester Guardian. This is
the Schloss Bruehl in a fair-si/^d
town of that name near Cologne.
The castle has been converted into
a club for the use of the British
army of occupation, one wing for
officers, in which the original fur
niture has been retained, and an
other for men.
The fine suite of rooms upstairs

recent handicap match in which the
