The World's Marseillaise. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 18 September 1914

The World's Marseillaise (By J.B.) A leading new.-papor in Melbourne, speaking of the war, says, "Tbe w«r is scarcely four weeks old, yet. it has al ready oviTshadoived, in significance, every other conflict since the world' began, and it needs none to teach us thut. before it ends, the world's found ations will be shaken." It is not often in a momentous crisis that a news paper turns prophet : yet here we have one. Saul, at one time Kin^ of Israel, spoke amongst tbe prophets.' This surprised ^ the people, inasmuch that the question went forth, "'Is Saul amongst the prophets ?" "We need none to teach us," says this daily Mel bourne newspaper, "that before the war ends, the world's foundations will bo shaken." Well, these words are very significant. It is much more than probable that they will prove them selves to be true. The world's found alions will be shaken. ^L>'ctures upoa how a great newspaper is made will then cease.
