With the assistance of the lantern, which on this occasion was operated by Mr A. McPhee, scenes were thrown on the screen in which the audience manifested the greatest in terest, and with the pithy, and, at times, humorous remarks of the Rev. Tolhurst, the entertainment was voted an excellent &nbsp; one. Views of Berlin were first shown, including the Lutheran Cathedral and the Exchange. Wiesbaden, where the Kaiser preaches his own sermons, and has plays &nbsp; of his own writing produced, was of great interest, as also was the Greek Church, the interior of which is painted with pictures, with an enormous eye, representing the eye of the Almighty, in the tower and wherever one moves in the Church, the Eye is on...

The War Generals. [Newspaper Article] — Nagambie Times — 25 September 1914
The War Generals. Tliose who assert that this is tho day of the young man, that a man is " loo old at forty," aud the rest of il, miiy bo induced to modify their views by noting the ages of the principal generals engaged in the present war. General Joft're, tho Commander-in-Chief of the Franco-British forces, is 02 ; his principal subordinate, the dashing, smashing General Pan, is four or live yours older ; Sir -John French is (52 ; von Klnek is 08. These veterans present in this respect a striking contrast to the leaders of the Napoleonic, era. Napoleon himself was only 20 when he was placed in command o£ the army of Italy, aud only ;)0 when ho won the battle of Marengo. Ho was not 40 at Waterloo, and most of his brilliant cluster of marshals were about tho same ago as their illustrious chief. Wellington, his groat antagonist, was only a few mouths older.
