Some Recent Improvements in the British Army [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Some Recent improvements in the British Army It any proof were necessary that the train ing of the officers and men who make up the British Expeditionary Force 1i excellent, It is clearly contained in the despatches from Sir John French, and in the numerous accounts which have been issued by the Press Bureau. While knowing him as I do (says Chas. Woods in the "Weekly Despatch"), I am not astonished that the always cheerful and gallant British soldier has not been impressed or depressed by all that he has passed through during the last tow months, it may be well briefly to sum marise some of the reasons for which the spirit and morale of our men is so good, and also some of the lessons learnt in the South African War, lessons which during recent years have been turned to advantage. There is no doubt that the man who lives in northern climates, and especially the Eng lish climate, is usually finer than the one who is brought up on the Continent. This is partly" due to the survival of ...
Visitor Sees Desolation in War-Scarred Belgium [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Visitor Sees Desolation in War-Scarred Belgium The following story is from the pen of an American who visited the Continent a few months ago, and penetrated as far as the battle field of Charleville-Mezieres. The narrative Jegins from the time of leaving London : Aboard the Dutch vessel that was to take us to the warring Contiisent, we found a British naval officer was to be in command as long as the ship was in British territorial waters. This precaution was taken to avoid the thickly strewn mine fields. It was a weird and fearful night. The Batavier's portholes were covered with paper and all lights were out. Most of the passengers slept with life-preservers girted on. .The searchlights of warships played on us intermittently, and the vessel was making extraordinary turns and detours to avoid mines, the engines stopping and starting again every few minutes. Just outside the territorial waters a destrover and submarine came alongside, and the British officer was taken off. Early ne...
HOW THE PEGASUS WENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
HOW THE PEGASUS WENT. A number of men of H.M.S. Pegasus, which was attacked by the German cruiser Konigs berg in Zanzibar Harbor, arrived at Plymouth last month from South Africa in the steamship Walmer Castle. As was pointed out in the Admiralty report of the attack, the Pegasus was at anchor, cleaning her boilers and re pairing machinery. Moreover she was out ranged by the newer guns of the enemy ship. She was completely disabled. "Whatever may be said about the sporting instincts of tha Emden officers, I don't think the officers of the Konigsberg had the same spirit," said one of the bluejackets. "We had been on her track and had repeatedly challenged her to fight, call ing her up by wireless to come and do battle. I am quite sure that if we had encountered.the Konigsberg on the open sea the old 'Peggie' would have been more than a match for the German. We were not afraid of her gunfire, and would have steamed within range and de pended upon our superior gunfire and the use of to...
THE YOUNG RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
'-THE YOUNG RESERVE. Unlike Australia, England has no compulsory training, but it is wrong to think that she has not got boys in training. As far as the Navy is concerned there are a great number of train ing ships under private control turning out boys. C. B. Fry, the well-known sportsman, nor instance, is in charge of a private training ship called the Mercury, a vessel which has drafted hundreds of -boys into the Navy as fully-fledged seamen. It is a well-known fact that boys trained in this manner have later in life risen to the best positions. The fact of having this young reserve from outside rel sources to fall back on is a valuable asset tO our Navy. In the Mercury herself the system of training is a very fine one, and embraces many subjects not included in the curriculum of the Navy. In addition, the whole, of the in structors employed are ex-Naval men. If ever these boys are called upon they will be certain to give a good account of themselves.

SERICULTURE FOR AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
SERICULTURE FOR AUSTRALIA The object of the promoters of the Silk Cul ture Society of New South Wales is to make sericulture an established Australian industry. It is not expected that very much can be done all at once, and for the time being the en deavors of the Society are turned in the direc tion of educating the public in the matter of the industry generally. From time to time more or less serious attempts have been made in this and other States of the Commonwealth to start the industry, but never with any degree of suc cess. The reason for this has been that too much has been attempted at once. Profiting by these lessons, the aim now is to interest as many people as may be possible in the matter, and in uce them to take up scriculture as a hobby that may ultimately become a profitab'e sideline, as poultry-raising has in many in starces. To this intent the Society has published a pamphlet, "Sericulture for Australia." giv ing in outline the guiding principles of the subject, an...

THE MENACE OF CATARRH There are few human ailments which create such discomfort and misery as Catarrh-the mother of all disease. It pursues you at work and at play; it-is with you everywhere,-threatening Deafness, Throat Diseases, Bronchitis, Asthma, Dyspepsia, Neuritis and Consumption; making you down hearted, ruining your hopes, wrecking your life and holding a weapon of greater suffering always before you. Those offensive discharges from the nose, the partial loss of hearing, the irritating head-noises, the dry " stopped-up" feet ing in'the nostrils, the constant sneezing, the husky throat, th, frequent headaches, the continual hawking and spitting to dislodge the mucous secretions, the heavy tired feeling when you awake these symptoms are as nothing compared with the fact that you are .inviting the entry of some worse affliction if you ne...
Turkey's New Plague [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Turkey's New Plague - The New York "World" prints a startling and remarkable letter from a prominent subje,:t of the Sultan of Turkey to a friend living'in Boston. The letter, extraordinary and revolt ing as'it is, bears all the marks of genuineness. It is wvritten by Ahmed Selim Tllah Bey, formerly provincial minister of education in the Province of Syria, and at one time a refugee in the United States, to J. J. Bosdan. of Boston. After describing the ravages of cholera-"the curse of the Orient"-the writer states that Turkey is suffering from a new plague called "Prussian culture." This, he says, is worse than cholera, because for the latter there is a sure preventative. The account describes how a young German named Max Nahke, of Dresden, disguised as a Moslem priest, told a fanatical mob that the ;haiser had been converted to the Moslem faith. Nahke went to Constantinople as a student of the Imperial Ottoman Academy, and in four years completely mastered the Turkish langu age. On...
The End of Beyers [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
The End of Beyers That the end of General Beyers (who was drowned last month) was to a great extent brought about by the strategy employed by the South African troops pursuing him, is the im pression one forms after reading the story of his last .stand. It appears that Beyers was making his way into the Transvaal from the Free State with about 30 men. These men were not originally members of his force, but had consented to escort him into the Trar.s:aal on his own re quest after an engagemeno .-"'ch took place a few days previously. On December 6 news reached Maquassi that Beyers and 25 men were seen at the farm, Greyling's Request, 24 south of Maquassi, and Captain Cherry, with 30 men, left at once on a faorced march south. News of the rebels' movements had also reached a storekeeper at Commando Drift, further up the river. At this time the Government troops were situated as follows :-Captain Uys, of Viljoen's Corps, was "on the Transvaal side of the Orange River, with 25 men; Comm...
South African Rebellion a Badly Bungled Scheme [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
South African Rebellion a Badly ungled Scheme JOHANNESBURG. December '6. Nine or ten mnillions sterling in bar gold was secretly sent away from the Rand banks the other night to some "safe" place in the Capet Two armored trains acted as escort. A ring of armed men surrounds Pretoria. No one can leave the capital without a permit. None may sell even a pint of petrol without an order from the military authorities. Several towns have been struck out of the railway time-tables. N6 trains run to them. Night mail trains have ceased. Everywhere men are drilling, arming, sign •ing on as civil guards. Artillery has been rushed up from Natal. Out on the veld bodies of rough-looking, mounted men roam about commandeering goods and giing receipts in the name of "The South African Republic." They have entered two or three towns and ejected the magistrates and leading officials. They are rebels. South Africa is facing a Boer rebellion. And what a strange rebellion I It is an ex traordinary mixture...
Norway Afraid of Offending Any Parties to War [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Norway Afraid of Offending Any Parties to War CHRISTIANIA (Norway), Nov. 28. The word "neutrality" has acquired a flexible and variable quality undreamed of by the foun ders of dictionaries. There is the violated and therefore the unavailing neutrality of Belgium; the grim, almost belligerent, neutrality of Hol land, and the frightened neutrality of Norway. The result of sharp attacks on the Norwe gian Press, both by the Germans and the Eng lish, has been to frighten Norway out of an, inmividual opinions of her own. Recently she has been charged with having sold her Press to England. She had hardly time to defenl herself against this accusation before there ap peared in the correspondence of the London papers a severe arraignment of the Norwegian Press for having accepted bribes from Germany. In an earnest desire to give no color to either of these charges, Norway has sedulously culti vated a neutrality that is beyond reproach. Of all neutralities it is, outwardly, at least, the rno...
Passing Notes on the European Struggle By No. 243. LATEST DEVELOPMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
Passing Notes on the European Struggle By No. 243. LATEST DEVELOPMENTS. The news of the British victory at La Bassee sets off the 'chance victory of the Ger mans near Soissons. Neither event, however, is likely to affect the general situation just at the present moment. The climatic con ditions render operations on a big scale a matter of'some danger through the dificulty of maintaining a successful line of communi cations. For the time being we shall have to look to the air for develop nents. In this respect, too, the Allies are likely to sooner or later establish a mastery that will stand them in good stead, when, with the arrival of the Spring the fighting will be resumed in earnest. A damaging blow struck at the German aerial fleet at this moment is the Allies chief objective. Apart from that the artillery duels and the hand to hand struggle for the trenches will be the only news we may expect from the western front. In the eastern theatre everything seems to hinge on the big ba...

HAS THE KARLSRUHE GONE ? [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
HAS THE KARLSRUHE GONE? Confirmation seems to be lacking in regard to the sinking of this ship. It certainly is strange that such a long period should elapse without any definite news temng received con cerning this marauder, but there are many places on the South American coast where a ship could lie hidden for a considerable period without detection. This is where she probably is, or has been. . he reported washing ashore of a lifebuoy bearing her name may be a ruse on the part of the Karlsruhe herself, and doubt less fill be accepted as such.by the vessels in.search of her. Wherever she may be, it is gratifying to know that she has had no oppor tunities recently to interfere with our shipping.
THE BLACK SEA FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
THE BLACK SEA FLEET. Great importance must be attached to the work of smashing the Turkish Fleet in the Black Sea. Though Russia does not possess what may be called an up-to-date fleet, it must be remembered that some of her ships are armed-with 12-inch guns. The latter would be of valuable assistance in bombarding the Turkish coast, and finally the Dardanelles, thus clearing a way through for the Allied fleets. By securing supremacy in the Black Sea, the coastal shipping between Russian ports there, which has been greatly interfered with, would be enabled to resume normal running.
WILL TORPEDOES BE USEFUL ? [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 23 January 1915
WILL TORPEDOES BE USEFUL? "Wizard" Edison expresses an opinion that the latest British battleships may prove cap able of nullifying the effects of torpedoes. Pro bably this has been proved to be the case to the satisfaction of the Admiralty experts, be cause ships of this class are not provided with torpedo" nets. It is unlikely that in a big battle torpedoes will be brought into use, owing to the enormous range and penetrative power of present-day guns and shells. Although much has been heard of the reliance placed by the Germans in torpedo craft, working in cogjunc tion with their battle fleet, we may be sure that Admiral Jellicoe will be skilful enough to fight at long range. - Coupled with the superiority of rahge of our guns, the fact that we possess faster ships than the Germans will make the task of a naval battle easier from our point of view. The likelihood of the two fleets getting Close enough for effective torpedo work is :mall. .It is doubtful whether under any cir cums...
