Finer animals he had never seen. When his eyes had feasted on their beauty, he cried to tho driver: "Hello," good fellow! I must have those horses. They are Just such animals as I have been look ing for." The black man grinned, rolled up tho whites of his eyes, put the lash to 'the horses's flanks and turned up another furrow in the rich soil.

"THE QUEEN OF THE MOUNTAINS." [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 March 1915

"THE QUEEN OF THE MOUN TAINS." .Much interest attaches to Miss Edith Durliain's new book, "The Struggle for Scutari," which is thus noticed in the Queen: Though the public attention is now fixed on larger issues than the troubles of tho Balkans, Miss Durham 'a vivid ami Interesting book is pretty sure of a cordial reception, for, after all, the state of affairs in the Near East is very intimately connected with the ul timate relations of the greater nations. Germany's' dream of a mid-European Empire stretching from sea to sea is based in part ou the theory that tho most important Balkan States are to be pressed into her sphere of inlluence, while Turkey is to be a sort of German annexe, -".moreover, the struggle for Scutari is so recent that it might also bo considered a part of the general European conflagration, and possibly future historians will regard it as the beginning of the great.war.

THE BLACK WATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 2 March 1915

THE BLACK WATCH. A few remarks about this famous _ regiment, which, in the groat war now raging, is adding to the nu merous laurels gathered by it in many past conflicts, may not bo out of placo at tho present time. It is one of the kilted regiments, for, perhaps contrary to popular, ideas on the subject, many of i.ho Scotch regiments wear the trews, belter known as trowsers, pants, or kicksins, and it is only some of them that sport the national 'garb of old Gaul." Whereas some, of the highland regiments, such as the Argylls, the Seaforths, and tho Sutherlands, represent the old clans, Llic Campbells, tho Ma.-kr.n^'cs, and the Sutherlands, the lilaok Watch consisted originally of highlanders irrespective of clan, and included many lowlandcrs. It was original ly formed in 1720 by the Govern ment, to keep in order the turbulent Jacobite clans, such as the Stuarts, Camerons, JIacdonalds, and Hur rays. Tho first colonel of the new ly-formed regiment was Lord Craw, ford, a lowlander, an...
