IS WAR DECLINING? [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 10 June 1915
IS WAR DECLINING ? During the nineteenth century r.SG batt.li-!? were fought. This is exclud ing all the smallei engagements, which, if reckoned along with the rest, bring the total to 8,102-that is, eighty-one battles per year, or a fraction over one and a half every week during the full hundred years. Our battlegrounds were spread over the following nineteen countries : France, India, Austria, Russia, Bel gium, Egypt, America, Ashanli, Sou dan, Afghanistan, China, New Zea land, Zululand, Persia, Abyssinia. Burmuh, Mashonaland, Corea, and the Transvaal. How many battles will be recorded by future historians for the present twentieth century it is impossible to say. But if the great war drags on indefinitely, it is very possible that last century's total will be eclipsed. Many a man's best thoughts ap pear in yesterday's paper.
CROSSING THE STREAM. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 10 June 1915
CROSSING THE STREAM. In view of the Russian Army's rapid advance, despite unfavourable land conditions, it is interesting tu note the modes of transit employed. When Russian cavalry cross rivers or streams the men are sent over in dependently of the horses, which are collected and driven in a body into the water, tho direction being given by a few troopers who are good swimmers, and who cross holding on to the horses' manes. The Russians claim that this method has' the double advantage of taking only half the time which would otherwise he occupied in cross ing n river, and of fatiguing the horses far less. To prevent the horses breaking away, and thus delaying the forma tion of the troops after the passage, the troopers who go over with the horses, instead of at once crossing to the opposite bank, halt near the middle of the stream and form a chain along that part of the river. It is found that the animals, afur their swim, take their places in the ranks! without giving trouble.

FRENCH PRAISE FOR BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 10 June 1915
FRBNCH PRAISE FOR BRITAIN. Napoleon once said that the Brit ish troops "stood like stone walls," and he added : ".England is tho most constant, the most powerful, the most generous of my enemies." In the Peninsular War Marshal Soult once wrote to Napoleon : "Curse these English 1 They never know when tliey are beaten. For I pierced their centre, I turned both flanks, I had them at my mercy-and still they did not run \" Bcaugaud, one of Napoleon's gen erals, once declared, "The English infantry is the best in the world ; it is fortunate there is no more of it." General Fox wrote after Waterloo that "nothing could shake the im movable British squares. One would have been tempted to believe that they had struck roots into the earth if the battalions had not swept ma jestically forward a. few minutes af ter the going down of. the sun and given to Wellington the most decisi.-e' victory of the age." The same general once also sighed: "Ah, the English soldier possesses the most precious of...

The time of the passage through the canal iy put at 8 to 10 hunts, and ' through the series; of wonderful locks at hours. The total number of men employed on the historic wurls was 4(1,000.

WHAT AMOS WORE. Amos Whitaker, a miserly million aire, was approached by a friend who used his most persuasive powers to have him dress more in accordance with his station in life.

"Why," shouted the miser, trium phantly, "these clothes I've j.;ot on were father's !"

The Truth About Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Dookie and Katamatite Recorder — 10 June 1915
The Truth About Gows. + Some time ago a schoolmaster in a | country school asked bis pupils to . write an essay on cows. Here is the "elloi't" of n farmer's son : | The cow is a no-hull and kine hoarted creature. The man who looks after cows is ' called a cow-herd, but he is no cow ard who looks after cows. t Cowes has A. regatta every year ; yet the cow is not a nautical animal. It is not true that she steers with hor udders. It is reported that tiie cow sat at the head of the table in the Ark (so say ark-cow-ologists), because she was the only animal t,hat could calve. The cow is a gi>od mother, and will look calf-ter her calf. Cows rarely ride in carriages, but a fine calf has frequently been seen descending from a tramcar. Cows exist by . means of the ox ygen in the atmosphere. (I got this from a professor at Ox-ford). By the cow is the milk made. T know this to be true, far I have seen the milk-maid by the cow. The cow has been introduced into song. There is an old song call...

OK GUARD. ABOUT ACTIONS UK TI-iK FOU Y' WtD I.INJS AN11 OK THR REAR. Any forco marching against an I enemy is preceded by an advance guard, the strength of which, al though varying in circumstances, i3 ! usually about one-sixth of the total ' force. 1 Thus, a column of 0,000 men would throw out an advance guard about 1,000 strong. The duties of the advance guard are to prepare the way for the force in rear : for' example, by repairing bridges that have been destroyed, or iiuilding fresh ones, destroying "ob : stacU-s," to guard the main body from surprise, to drive ofi the ene ? my's scouts or patrols, to gain in formation about the enemy, while preventing him from obtaining any and, linally, if necessary, to take up i a defensive position, and hang on to it like grim death until the.-main body has time to come into action.
