The Principal Object of the Turkish Porte Mr. A. E. P. B. Weigall, who has had such ann interesting career as Inspector-General of Aintiquities in Egypt, makes this definite state ment in the "Fortnightly Rewiew" : "Turkey's main object was from the first the conquest of Egypt "Ever since the beginning of the war the Turkish imagination has been filled with the" dream of regaining her lost prestige, but her thoughts have not turned to the west or north; they have been directed to the east and'south. She knows well enough that it is useless to attempt to recover her lost - possessions in Europe; and, indeed, her German tutors have carefully guided her attention away from the west. Her dream has been to restore herself to a position of supremacy in the Mtohammedan world. FOUR OBJECTS. "Turkey's first objet was to capture the Suez Canal, thus cutting direct communication between England an India.

In the neat of battle mene have rushed forward and saved the life of an endangered companion. This Sikh did something braver than that. His comrade was too badly wounded to be moved by one man unassisted. The Sikh sergeant made him as comfortable as possible between two hayricks, and then mounted guard over him. That night the Germans were advancing In single file through the hayricks on to the English post. tion. Not one who came via the wounded man's ricks got any further, for the sergeant bayoneted each as he appeared. Such de votion was repaid, for in the morning the two were rescued and taken back to the British lines.

This bird's-eye map shows the country over which the fighting has been fiercest. In the top left-hand corner of the map is seen the flooded area and the town of Dixmude, now in ruins. Ypres itself is by this little better than a heap of ruins, so fierce and relentless has been the bombardment.
ALL ON. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915
ALL ON. I've got on everything I was able to carry with me into the trenches, till I look like Falstaff, but it's no good. I'm luckier than some. as I came across a little damp straw left by sone good. Samaritan in my corner. My bed-making is simple. To start with I am damp and muddy myself. Then I have on a damp and muddy suit. Over that I wear a damp and muddy "Coat-warm-British." I put down on the wet straw a damp, .imuddy, so called • "waterproof" sheet, then comes my sel. Next a very damp and muddy blanket, and lastly an excessively damp and muddy Bur berry. Each ti?e I turn out to visit the sen tries, etc I have,to unravel, and one or more of these get ttgdlden still farther into the mud. I always lose one of my gloves if I take it off for a second.: I've mud plastered on my face, in my hair, and the amount 'that manages to fall down et' back of my neck. is astonishing. I think I'll try; for a job as;:lad agent after this show. 'I ould- be an exact expert on soiL Fine sky tc-n...
British Officer's Thrilling Week in a "Funk Hole" [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915
ritish 0 cer's Thrllin Week in a "Funk Hole" SThe following are some very vivid extraclts published in the "Daily Mail" from the diary of an officer now at the front. STuesday.-I .got nearly shot this morning by a nervous individoal of a company of an other regiment on my right, who didn't know where anything or anybody was. I was on Srity way back from my little spy raid, and in the dark struck his trench instead of my own. - Fe covered my tu?nry with his pistol at about six inches' range. With a very shaky hand, and in ant equally shaky voice, he wanted my name "quick." To tell the truth I was so flabbergasted that I could only with extreme difficulty remember my own name, much less that" of the regisicont to which I'm attached. Eventually, after come parley, he 'let me in. . I had a shot or two at an enterprising sniper whno always fires through one or two loopholes in their trench close to a willow tree. No luck though. Our men ate rather too keen on this "hnipin?'- business, an...

EXTRACTS FROM A LETTER FOUND ON A PRISONER OF THE '4TH GERMAN INFANTRY REGIMENT (10th CORPS). I have just been living through days that defy imagination. I should never have thought that men could stand it. Not a second has passed but my life has been in danger, and yet Snot'a hair of my head has been hurt. It was horrible, it was ghastly. But I have been saved for you and for our happiness, and I take heart again, although I am still terribly unnerved. God grant that I may see you again soon, and that this horror nmay soon be over..

He received orders frot Lord Fishar. He left London.

LETTER FROM LIEUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915
LETTER FROM LIEUT. - . OF THE 26TH REGIMENT OF FIELD - ARTILLERY. - For the last five weeks-we have undergone colossal fatigue, lack of sleep, and nesperate combats. The 10th Corps has been constantly on the move since the first day of the cam paign. My battery is especially always with the advance guard. Our horses are for the most part worn out; we are now using Belgian and French horses.- There are moments when theynsiinply cannot go on; then they just lie down--add to that the numerous wounds which they receive. From five in the morning to -eight -at night we are- under the enemy's. fire without being, able to eat or drink. I was so tired I could not keep on my horse, even at a walk. Towards midday our battery was literally plastered with the enemy's shrapnel and shells. We could not make the least movement behind our guns without running the risk of being - shelled. There was a murderous battle which lasted from Sunday, the 6th, .to Wednesday, Septem-: bet: 9. The 10th and Guar...
"LET US CALL UPON JAPAN" FRENCH STATESMAN'S WAY TO SHORTEN WAR "WHY HESITATE?" TRIBUTE TO SIR EDWARD GREY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915
"LET US CALL UPON JAPAN" FRENCH STATESMAN'S WAY TO SHORTEN WAR "WHY HESITATE?" TRIBUTE TO SIR EDWARD GREY. M. Stephen Pichon, late Minister of Foreign Affairs, made a strong plea for the intervention of Japan in the European field 'of war in an interview which he granted H. J. Greenwall, a "Daily Express" representative in Paris last month. "It is my opinion," he said, "that the victory of the Allies over Germanv---of this victory let me assure you I have not the slightest doubt will not create a situation which will allow the victorious nations to live in any sort of isolation, nor to take up any line of liberty of action. No, the conquered Germanic coun tries must continue for several years to find themselves faced with a group of united forces which will prevent them from spreading their barbarism over Europe. MUST BE CRUSHED. "Prussian militarism must disappear. The House of Hohenzollern and its pretended 'divine mission,' of which it boasts, must be crushed, so that the people,...

Belgium to be the Scene of Many Bloody Battles [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915
Belgium to be the Scene of Many Bloody Battles While apparently adhering to their policy of maintaining a stubborn defensive in Western Flanders without making any further attacks rn a grand scale, the Germans continue to fill certain towns and depots with fresh troops from Germany and Poland (writes Percival Phillips. the special correspondent of the "Daily Ex press"), with the intention of raising a barrier in a new position across the invaded country s,.hich the Allies will be unable to penetrate, at least under present conditions. A distinguished representative of a neutral country, who left Belgium recently not only with passports which enabled him to travel freely within the invaded territory, but with !etters of thanks from military officials for his ansistance in certain important undertakings un connected with the army, told me that he saw large masses of troops moving constantly west ward by train through Liege, Namur, Charle roi, and Ghent during the last seven days of hi...
THE SINKING OF THE BLUCHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915
S THE SINKING OF THE BLUCHER. The sinking of the German battle-cruiser Blucher recently was responsible for wonderful shooting on the part of the British squadron. Although the Germans had several miles' start when they turned and fled, they were gradually overhauled by the Lion, the Tiger, and the Princess Royal. The damage inflicted daring the running battle was so great that the Blucher was abandoned by her sister ships, leaving a splendid opportunity for the Lion, the Tiger, and the Princess Royal to deliver broadsides at they passed her, the effect of which must have been terrific. One bluejacket rescued from the Blucher subsequently stated that one terrible British shell burst in the heart of the ship and killed scores of men. The Germans fired faster than the British, but many of their shots went, wide. The British, on the other hand, fired steadily, each shot finding its mark, until the crucial moment arrived, when, hit on the water-line, the Blucher slowly heeled over and s...
The Great Calm English [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 6 February 1915
The Great Calm English LONDON, Friday, December 4. Jndging from my. own experience, I should ray that the first -feeling of every visitor to England from the other side of the Channel is one of shock, almost indignation, to find everything going on in apparently normal fashion here. At first blush it all seems so unfair. We are at war, too. Then why should the fair countries of France and Bel Sglum be desolate and ours unscathed ? Why should every home over there have to give up its manhood to the service 'of the Allies and we be able to keep our young men in thoen sands apparently doing nothing useful in this crisis ? Why should their mills, factories and workshops be silent and ours still going ? Why should travelling in the Allied States on the Continent be torture and here a matter ofu pleasure and ease? Why must all their places of amusement be closed, while our theatres and music halls are open, with people .thronging to them to laugh and enjoy them selves as if nothing at all...
