One day when Wounded he noticed another British soldier belonging to a Scottish regiment whose face seemed familiar. He crawled over and found it was the chap for who~n ho had been thrown over.

Well, I thought, I'm the only fellow doing nothinig, and I might just as well volunteer. Buglers and drummers are generally non-combatants. I simply took about 400 rounds to the corporal, who said they'd hang on all night. Then I came back. "Through the shrapnel ?" he was asked. "Yes, through the shrapnel," came the matter-of-fact reply. "Two days later I had the same sort of job. Perhaps the fire this time was a bit hotter. Still, I got across to our chaps agait. e...

The Turk as a Soldier: Men Who are Born Sword in Hand "The Turk is essentially a fighting animal. Of all his critics none have ever accused him of backwardness-in battle. The Turkish nation was born in bloodshed. - It won its foothold in Europe by the sword, thoughlit has kept it by diplomacy; or, rather, perhaps, by the jealou sies of its neighbors. . . Islam has been its battle cry." SIn these words F. G. Aflalo opens his chap ter on "Reform in the Army" in his excellent dRe-gilding the Ctescent." "Its efficiency," he continues, "is armatter on -which even. experts differ. Perhaps it fights with braivery rather than with brains.

THE SCARBOROUGH SCARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915
THE SCARBOROUGH SCARE. Curiously enough, it was Scarbhrough whcid provided one of the last big German scare stories. That was in the Summer of 1912. An extraordinary tale suddenly came into certain London newspaper offices which sent special correspondents aind reporters helter-shelter up , to Scarborough in the hope of being present at. an Iriternational incident. The story concerned the conduct of a German naval commander who with him war vessels lay in English waters some way off Scarborough. When some Eng lish cruisers arrived the German commander neglected to salute the English commander, as is the custom and courtesy of naval etiquette. It was an unpardonable omission, and a mes-. sage was at once sent over to the Germaus officer tdshknow why the salute had not beets made.

Our London Letter: Interesting War Items LONDON, December 19. The cry of alarm that our interning of aliens will arouse reprisals on the part of Germany S?awakens a smile among those who know some thing of the all-round treatment our country men and.women have had to endure in Ger many and Austria. We get a veracious and convincing account in the "Chronicle" this week of the measures taken by Austria to seize a young English resident professor of languages and prevent-him from communicating with his people. He is Bernard Watkins, who hails from Worthing, in Sussex, and has lived abroad for some years, chiefly in the study of lan guages. Everybody knew him in his Tyrol village near the German border, and when he took train as usual to Koniggratz to give lessons, he soon got one of his own, for he was arrested and all his papers were seized. The local sheriff could not help him, although Mr. Watkins was arrested a week before Eng land and Austria declared war, and all the satisfaction...

"The churchyard of our parish lies in a deep hollow, and a little river half encircles it. In the midst of it stands the church, beneath whose shadow the parish has garnered its dead for centuries. There the generations have lain down to sleep, their hearts reconciled one to an other, and the beadle has drawn the coverlet of green over their heads. ,As he goes about his allotted task he pats a mound here and there gently with the back of his spade-for roadmen and Lord of Session are at one here. IN THE KIRKYARL'D. "The last time I wandered down tv that hol low it seemed as if eternal peace brooded over the living and the dead. As I turned a'ay to retrace my steps through the gate I came on a woman sitting on the mort-safe (the mort-safe was adopted at the time when body-snatching was common), a handkerchief moist with h...
