Notwithstanding that he. has cx perienced failures at every point since the beginning of the war,- failures to take Paris, to open a rood to Calais, to hold Italy to its allegianco as a partner in the Triple Alliance-the Kaiser never lacks in the art of "drawing the long bow" for the benefit, or bnfoozelment. of his doting subjects.

IN ARCHITECTURAL CURIOSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 25 May 1915

4N ARCHITECTURAL CURIOSITY. There ate; many churches through out England which are without tower oi spire, but there are few churchy which can boast of having a tower and spire side by side. One of these i8 tha parish church of Ormskirk, in Lan cashire. The tower is built over the porch at the west end, and the spire is placed as closely as possible to it. The origin of thiB architectural freak has not been ascertained, but there ia a tradition to the effect that when Orme, the Saxon pirate from whom the town derives its name, decided to con struct a kirk, or church, as an expia tory offering for hia evil deeds, his two daughters quarrelled over the design for the structure. One determined to have a tower, the other was equally resolved to have a steeple. As neither of to em would give way the pirate chief acceded to both their wishes, and the curious may see tlie tower,and spire still keeping wnh'b side by side on the surrounding coun try.

Wur itself ii so utterly destructive and devilish in its operation, so pio.naut with distress, misery, and grief for the human race, so down-leve'ling nud degrading in the instincts it calls up in those taking part, that it surely is an extraordinary position to take up when enlightened men and women unite in commendation of tha entry of still another fighting gladiator I into the Devil's theatre. It, however, has to be remembered that the occision is an extraordinary one, and the issuei at stake far surpass those of any other war on rccoid.
