*HAILSTONES CONTAINED IMAGES.*

Broke Upon Striking the Earth and Revealed
Virgin's Face.

Remiremont, France, June 28. - A diocesus
commission has been conducting
an investigation at Remiremont of an
alleged miracle, and having heard 107
witnesses, it today affairmed [sic] the reality
of the supernatural event.

During a violent hailstorm in the
month of May hailstones were picked up,
it is alleged, bearing images of the virgin
on their surface. Contact with the
earth had split them in half and on the
smooth inner surface was the miraculous
pictures. Local Catholics consider this
phenomenon a divine response and rebuke
to the notion of the municipal
council in vetoing a proposed procession
in honor of the virgin. The secretary of
the Academy of Sciences attributes the
phenomenon to photo-fulgural or vapore-
graphic impressions of certain medals
struck in honor of the virgin.
