The Mammoth Artillery of the War [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
The Mamoth Artillery of the War In the midst of the wealth of fabled non sense that has been written about the wonder S ful big guns of the Germrn army, a few con _ crete facts stand out. The Prussian Press has sedulously attempted to bluff.the whole world with wonderful stories as to the things they S can and have done, but it remains a fact that up to date the sum total of tnelr achievements h .s been comparatively small. The battering S of the Belgiansforts .ifi the.early part of' the war was certainly a notable. achievement, but a..ilifferent story might. have been told if the artillery that is now with the Allied forces had been earlier in the field; The 4:in, 'llin,. and 17in Krupp monsters are very fine weapons in their way, and havre "done almost all that was expected of them. Still there are guns in the British army alore that can meet them on equal terms and make a winning fight of it. For une thing, it wvas reported that Liege, Namur,and Antwerp ,-ere sinashed up by 17in ...
Some of the Sacrifices Made by the Jews [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
Somee of the Sacrifices Made by the Jews _ .One of the world's problems that will find a - olution as a result of the present conflict, - will be the position of the Jews amongst the Christian nations, and more particularly with respect to Russia. As far as can "be gathered from the meagre sources of information that are available at this distance from the theatre of operations, the Russian Government still enforces the repressive measures against the Jewish population within its doors, and more than that has so far refused to ameliorate the conditions of misery and despair engendered .-by the pale of settlement. The world has greeted with amazed appro bation the ukase against the vodka evil, but a far wider and a more richly merited reward awaits the official announcement of some modification of the agonising existence to which the Jews of Russia have been forced by official decree. That they are deserving o, .some consideration, however scanty, let the following story bear witness...

The "Glorious" History of the Iron Cross [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
The~ L"G~oiougs" 1hi~stsoy d ~lise HEliro~ CFi"Os Already thousands of German soldiers have received the Iron Cross for conspicuous gal lantry in the field. This German decoration, whichl is similar in design to our Victoria Cross, Is said to be east out of guns cap turid 'in War, and iii this connection carries Its resemblance to our decoration a'little fur tlher, lnasmuch as It'is sild that the Victoria Cross is made 'out of guns captured In the Crimen. - The Prusslan Order was instituted on March 10, 1813, by Frederick William III. Its Incep tion was due to Gnelsenau. who In 1t11 pro posed to the King a asenral rising against Napoleon, and suggested that all men who served with distinction In the field should be decorated with a black and white scarc or a national cockade. The -King, however, favored an emblem in the shape of two pieces of black and white ribbon sewn in the form of a cross -on the breast of the coat.

A Passionate Admiraftno: 1Prfessorc's Remarkable Trbute .' LONDON, December 5. A North Lancashire sergeant, writing home to his people, says: "The poor refugees come round us like wolves, kiddies crying for food, and we can't re fuse them. An empty stomach is a very deli cate organism, which kind words won't make any easier. "Result : Light pack, light stomach, but an easy conscience." These are the men we have sent to the front. and these are the angels we have been enter taining in our midst all unawares. If you want my opinion of thlem, I can do no more than quote to you the inspiring words of that great Australian, Professor Gilbert Murray. Coming from him, they are noteworthy, indeed. Al ways a leading advocate of peace, one of those Swho had the courage of their opinions and steadfastly refused to find any.justification for Great Britain's war against the lBders, the ideal translator of Euripides' "Trojan Women," the fist great denunciation of war, Professor Mur ray finds it i...
Italy Wants to be Free and Independent [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
_ Italy Wants to be IFree and Independent SLONDON. November 20. It is freely said that Italy's cause for hesi tation about joning in this war has been a de - sire to borrow a few millions from England, and this does ner an injustice, even at a time when her exchequer has been wofully depleted /.by" her Tripolitan campaign. bA friend who is well inside the counsels of the Italian Embassy and who has occupied official positions in Anglo-Italian" afiairs, as s - ures me that the real reasons are deeper than any mere material question of finance or trade. They belong, in fact, not to the present, but to the future, and arise from a wholesome de s?ire that Italy shall stand well and permanently in the concert of Europe. And when these reasons are stated, they promise to clear her from any suspicion of "trimming" or "wob hling" or "mugwumpery" even at a time like this, when distrust and detraction are cheap.

BARRING GERMAN MUSIC M. CAMILLE SAINT-SAENS' ATTITUDE. Apropos of the campaign against German music, the following .significant news item has been going the round o the English papers. The Academy of Musicians at Munich having written to M. Camille Saint-Saens expressing astonishment at his attitude in "encouraging hatred against Germany and her artistic cul. ture," the famous French musician has for warded a stinging reply across, as he says, "the river of blood and mud which separates us." "I can have no sympathy," says M. Saint- . Saens, "for a people which.treats signed treaties as scraps of paper, which destroyed at Leipzig priceless tieasures entiusted to it by France and England, which. ruined without necessity marvels respected alike by time, by the wars of the Middle Ages, and by revolutions, which massacres women and children, which throws back civiliation to the most barbarous times and which impudently declared its intention of enslaving three-quarters of Europe.

A Shocking Example of German Brutality [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
A Shocking Example of German Bmtality From the Tijd, the leading Roman\ Catholic I 1Dutch paper, is taken the following letter from its Belgian war correspondent : ""I travelled on a train containing more than two hundred wounded soldiers, in iteelf'a ter rible thing, because of the often unbearable smell of the open wounds. With me was a girl of nine, the little daughter of Mr. de Bruin, of Aminsterdam, whom I had taken frc-m a con vent in Lorivain to conduct safely across the border to Maastricht.

MASSACRE AS A FINE ART. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
MASSACRE AS A FINE ART. - Yet another instance of the ract that Ger many realises that the present will probably be ler last struggle for decades lies in .the assis tance she is receiving froth science. For in tance, every battery of German artillery is pro. vided with a wonderful stereo-telescope, by which the operator can make accurate observa tions and yet remain out of the sight of the enemy. The instrument has two slender arms, ,vhich may be likened to the antennae of an in sect. Another novel invention is a gun-sight, which automatically returns to the position oc cupied when the gun is fired, thus entirely doing away with the necessity for a second righting operations. crom KRrpp's comes a clockwork flse claimed to be nearly 20 per cent. more accurate than those alreadv in use, while the latest type of air bomb es made in. the form of a torpedo. Attached by a wire to the tail end of this bomb is a wooden cross. When the bomb penetrates the balloon fabric the cross is arrested...
AERIAL INVASION OF BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
AERIAL INVASION OF BRITAIN. At last we have got somctlnng definite about the strengthiof the "force" which is going to invade'Britain from the air. We woke up the other morning to be told by a "Daily Exprese" correspondent that Germany has enlarged her Zeppelin woras to such an extent that bne of ithese giant airships can now be put together in less than three leteeks. 'Ordinarily, the time taken is about two months. It seems that over LOOf workmen are workiug day and night at Friedrichslhaven on the aerial fleet, the parts being made in other parts of the Fatherland. One Zeppelin "launched" in November is said to be the most powerful- in the world, being 1300ft long, 45ft wide, and equipped with three g00-h.p. motors. The crew.number 30 officers and men, and in a special basket the airship carries 50 torpedo bombs, which can do as much damage, we are led to believe, as the famous 16 inch German howitzers. Truly the outlook is enough to terrify anyone--that is, those who are not Bri...

THE DYING IRISHMAN. - A pathetic story is told by a wounded sol dier, now home, of the death of an Irishman. "We'came on himn" he said, "after one of the fights on the Aisrie. 'What can we do for aot'? we asked tenderly, for we could see he os not long for this world 'Can you whis tle ?' was the .u-rrisiog reply. '"Two of aisidl xre could, and asked what e' wduld like. "A lption Otce Agkin,' he re. plied. 'Tomiimy Burke whistled a few barn, and the dying man's eyes were fixed on him firmly all the time. 'When it was over he held out his hand to Tommy and said: 'Thank you, lad; it does me heart good to hear the ould tune for the last time this side of the grave.' Then he turned over and died with a smile on his face."
THE INDIAN NIGHTMARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
THE INDIAN NIGHTMARE. Ever since tlhey took the field the Indian troops have been a sort of perpetual nightmare to the Germans. -The latter's ncvspapers especially exhibit exteme interest in their doFgs, for which, they say, they are but to be pitied. Here is a typical howl frc.. the "Frank furter Zeitung" : "The old German kindness of heart is mant festing itself conspicuously in the treatment of our Indian prisoners. We are glad of this be cause, after all, the poor devils are not to blame for having been pitted against us. We have it from a native Indian officer that the British ac .driving the Indian troops to the front with machine guns, the men being further animated by plentiful doses dl rum and whisky.

HOW THE FORTRESS IS MINED. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
HOW THE FORTRESS IS MINED. The breach for the final assault on a fortress is made by mining. This diagram shows the course from the inner parallel co the base.of the fortress. The process of mining consists in driving a horizontal tunnel until it reaches a point below the fortress, placing at the further - end of it a charge of explosive, and blowing a breach through which the attacking troops can enter. These tunnels, known as galleries, are made as small as possible, for the work must be expeditious. This underground work is not allowed to proceed unmolested, countermine galleries being driven by the defenders of the fortress.. The storming of a fortress is usually done at night, and it is generally preceded. by a violent and unceasing bombardment from the siege artillery.-•
GAMES THEN AND NOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
GAMES THEN AND NOW. Old English law is a study in itself. In 1541, for example, there was passed an Act "for the Mayntenance of Artyllerie and the Debarringe at Unlawfull Games," now known as the Un lawful Games Act. From the preamble it is learned whb it was passed : For the avoiding of diversand many un lawful games and plays occupied and prac tised within this realm to the great hurt and let of shooting and archery divers godd and lawful statutes have been devised enacted and made, amongst which one was made . divers and many subtil and inventative and crafty persons intending to defraud the same statute since the making thereof have found and daily find many and sundry new and crafty games and plays, as logating in the fields, slydethrift .... keeping houses plays and alleys tor the maintenance thereof, by reason of which archery is sore decayed and daily is like to be more minished, and divers bowers and fletchers for lack of work gone and inhabit themselves in Scotland and oth...

O~n- London Letter: InteeslK n War Items SLONDON? December 5. Only one man so far has succeeded in inter viewing Lord Xitchener-Irving Cobb, an Amnerican journalist. Many have tried, though, and failed. One told me the other day that every American pressman had receivcd ocrde?s to interview the Minister for War at all costs. .The other morning one nearly succeeded. He had hung'around the vicinity of the War f0ice for some time, hoping to catch a glimpse of K. or K., and at length was rewarded with the sight of his familiar figure.: As the defender of Khartoum was in the act o0 ascending the steps, the correapondent man aged to ,attract his attention. "I represent the .. , he said, naming his paper, and looking hopeful. Kitchener didn't even smile. "How very Lnteresting," he remarked, laconically, and walked on.
War is Popular in Japan [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 30 January 1915
War is Popular in Japan TOKIO, December 1. There ts no doubt that the war with Germany is immensely popular with all classes of the Japanese population, and for several reasons. .Although there is a widespread feeling oa gratitude among the Japanese for all that Ger many has done for their country In the way of training in law, medicine, science, and war, there is yet a still more insistent conviction that most of Japan's troubles during the last few years have been the outcome of German infuence in Europe and America. It was the KIalser who created the cry of the "Yellow Peril," and Germans have acted consistently with that slogan in most of their relations with JaPan. The Japanese blame the Germans for a good deal of the anti-Japanese movement in the United States. They hold Germany in even greater resentment for her attitude to Japan in East Asia. On Germany Is laid the responsi bility for the Itusso-Japanese War, which has brought so much suffering and loss to Japan. The Japanes...
