ceding the bombardment snye:
"About a month ago tho German
eoinutnnders begun to realize the dan
ger of having the llelgian army oc

continually threatened tho German
lines of communication. The Ger
mans threw out feelers to ascertain
if Itelgium would agree to keep her
army in Antwerp in letuin for tho
German promise not to attack Ihe
"Tho Itelgians indignantly rejected
nil such propo-nls and replied by gal
lant sorties, which, however, failed of
complete success. Tho taking of Al
ost renewed tho Gormen necessary
for an aggressive campaign against
tho Helgians, which began after fur
ther German pornusuln for an agree
ment were rejected by (ho ljelgians.
"Accordingly th Germans brought
up some of their heaviest field pieces
and opened wiih tho bombatdiuent of
Maliaes. For a week afterward the
Gentians each dav bombarded some
open town outside of Antwerp with
the idea Unit the fleeing civil popula
