Diabolical Scheme: Austria's Proposal to Use Cholera Germs [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
Diabolical Scheme: Austria's Proposal to Use ChEolera Germs In some Russian newspapers, and especially in the "Army Messenger," which is issued by the staff of the armies at the front, it was xecently stated that the use of cholera cul tures as a weapon of modern warfare was pro posed officially by General von Hoetzendorf for use against the Russians and Servians. Such a terrible scheme on the part of our enemy (writes Lt.-Col. Rousta:n-Bek in the "Express") was suggested to the Supreme Mili tary Council of Austria, where Count Berch told .firmly opposed this barbaric- suggestion., hinting that he would resign from his post if the Military Council were in favor of it. Of course, the very idea of such a weapon being used against the Allies, coming from high military circles in Austria, would make the whole world tremble with horror, but such news being published in the official military newspaper could certainly be accepted with confidence. CHOLERA. In any case, if our enemies made w...
Extraordinary Revival of Industries in Birmingham LONDON, December 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
Extraordinary evival of Industries in Biarmingha LONDON, December 27. Birmingham is experiencing a famine-a famine of workers. Government orders for supplies for the Army and Navy have 'come in such quantities that it is impossible "o keep pace with them. Manu. facturers by the hunmdred have transformed their plant to serve the nation. One famous penmaker has .,bandoned for the moment the making of steel pens to produce 12,000,000 magazine cartridge clips. Button-makers are hurrying the completion of 72,000,000 brass Army buttons. The brassfounders have turned from the making of ornamental brass for fur ntture to the production of brass tubes for shrapnel. One leather house is reported to have made a fortune by its great purchase of hides on the day the war broke out, and every leather manufacturer is striving early and late to supply a part of the belts and pouches and straps demanded. Rifles are being made by the half-million; small-arm ammunition in such quantities that figures f...
A SECOND BALACLAVA. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
A SECOND BALACLAVA. Our adjutant shouted : "There's a lot of Ger mans in that wood, and we are going to charge them. Fix bayonets !" I should think there were a lot-thousands of them.. Led by Cap tain Boyle, we started to charge, but we never got up.to them, as. we got the order to retire. The odds were too great.. 'Captain Boyle had evidently not heard the order, for he rushed pell-mell into the German lines and was bayoneceF iA a dozen placc_.. We must have . . . . .. been out-numbered by twenty to one at least." It was a second Balaclava Charge, for there-, were not many more than 700 of us all told.--.

CEILING FALLS ON GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
CEILING FALLS ON GENERAL. One day 163 shells and shrapnel fell around our headquarters. The general was sitting in his rnom when one fell through the roof, knock ing the ceiling on top of him. He quietly picked up his papers and walked into another room, saying': "Fairly good shot, that," and began writing again. That day the general's groom was standing in front of me when a shell burst and blew his right arm nearly off. I picked him up and carried him into a barn justas'andther shell knocked part of the barn in, wounding the groom in the leg.-Trooper Ernest .Pigg,. Northumberland Hussars.

German Baby Killers Strike a Blow at Britain's National [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
German Baby Killers Strike a low at Britain's National THE SEA SNAKE By "R.N.R" That bloodthirsty old pirate, Admiral von Tirpit ' "imated some weeks ago that he in tended - 'ring Great Britain to her knees by raiding and destroying her shipping with sub marines. That, in brief, was his threat, and last week we had the initiation of the project by the promiscious blowing-up of several steamers in the Irish Sea and English Channel. It is only a little while ago since Dr. Conan Doyle wrote a story which was intended as a warning to Great Britain of the peril she ran from submarines. He made Great Britain de clare war on a weak country, and the latter was just about to give in when a daring naval officer undertook to bring England to her senses. All-he asked for were half a dozen submarines, and with the aid of these he raid ed British commerce. All food ships enter ing the Thames or any other port were sunk, and a starving population eventually forced the Government to yicid, and the ...
Sights that Kitchener's New Army Will See [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
Sights that Kitchener's New Army Will See The following account of how new troops go into battle, written by G. Ward Price in the London "Daily Mail," is vcry interesting from an Australian standpoint. The writer ' describes in detail the passage of the troops across the Channel, the march to the rail head, the detraining, and finally the manner in which they actually enter the field of battle. It is not very inspiriting country that you pass through on the way to railhead. The great open spaces of a French landscape, un broken by hedge or fence, with their eternal lines of naked pollard willows, have a bare, be draggled look on a wet Winter day, but it is a fine country to fight in, and that is the busi ness on hand. And as the train draws near to railhead, per haps during the silence of a stop on the line, there comes out of the distance a faint, deep, sullen "Woof l" You hardly notice the sound at first; it might be anything-a horse stamp ing oni the floor of his truck perhaps.

Various Ways of Removing Barbed Wire Entanglements [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
Various Ways of Removing Barb ed Wire Entanglements TEAR?NG DOWN BARBED WIRE WITH RAKE A deep network of barbed oirl is one of the most tormidaole ob stacles with which a military posi tion can be surcrunded, as the me behind it are p:actically 7luatm?: fnam attack until the obstructi:on has been removed or surmounte~. The l-tter, after many trials, has been found to be a very slow op~ ration. Experiments were made with wooden planks, ladders, bags filled with straw, and even baps made of two pieces of wire-mesh ing, which were thrown over ihe top of the barbed entanglement, ,all of which involved an encrimous amount of work, and none of wh'ch was effective as nippers or exp!o sives. Two rows of gloved men, armed with nippers, can cut z pas sage seven feet wide in 95 seconds. Another way of overcoming an obstacle of this description consist: in removing whole sections of it by means or a rake to which a wire rope is fastened. This is throws over the obstacle, and 30 men puU it, the ...

HOW AN UP-TO-DATE BATTERY FOR COAST DEFENCE IS ARRANGED. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
HOW AN UP-TO-DATE BATTERY FOR COAST DEFENCE IS ARRANGED. Above is shown one of the most complete of modern coastal batteries. The raiding warship having been sighted, its position is founs from the base end stations at each end of the submarine cable. The distance between these two stations is known, and it is a matter of trigonometry for the men in the plotting room, shown below the station in the centre of. the drawing, to arrive at the exact range of the raider. From the plotting room the exact elevation and direction is telephoned to the guns. All the fire control instruments and stations are located in safe places in the fortress reser-ation, and they are all amply protected by parapets of earth and concrete. They are connected with one another and with the different guns by telephone or telewriter. The range-finders are the eyes of the system. The "plotters' are the brains, the telephones, the nerves, and.the men at the guns the limbs. The hitting power of the battery depends ...
PUBLIC WANTS TO KNOW COUNTRY OF ORIGIN OF ALL GOODS [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
PUBLIC WANTS' TO KNOW COUNTRY OF ORIGIN OF ALL GOODS "Deal Im,..rlal!y," is a motto up to which all good citizens want to live. But on ac count of the want of distinctive trade marks it is easier said than done. It may seem a simple thing to make up onc'a mind to only- buy goods produced within the Empire or made by our Allies, but analysis of one's purchases shows that it is impossible to discover what the country of origin is of many of the things bought. Tea, that universal beverage of which Aus tralians consume more per -head of population than any other people on the globe, except those of New Zealand, is a very good case in point. The customs records show that no less than 6,000,0001b of Java. tea is imported into Aus tralia per year, yet it is impossible to find a single-packet of tea in the country labelled 'Java." People buy it under the impression that it comes from India or Ceylon, the com mon idea being that all tea is either Chinese or Indian. A housewife makes up her m...
OUR DEADLY PERIL MR. W. M. HUGHES TALKS STRAIGHT [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
OUR DEADLY PERIL MR. W. M. HUGHES TALKS STRAIGHT In the course of his appeal for support of the National Rifle Club movement at Mosman last week, Mr. W. M. Hughes said things that we must not overlook. Represent ing the Federal Government, he possibly spoke with an In ner knowledge of the seriousness of the crisis, and we can not afford to take his words lightly. Here are a few ex tracts from his speech: "There are some who consider that this war is all over bar the shouting. . . We have been compelled to rapidly revise our crude, insular conception of the great German nation. - "This is a struggle for the survival of the fittest. We must demonstrate our fitness, and we must do this by duty and sacrifice. "Much remains to be done, and the slogan cry must rouse from their lethargy every citizen to a sense of the deadly peril in which they and all that they hold dear stand, and must stand, while Germany remains unconquered. "There is too much reason to believe that some among us yet d...
Over the Channel: How Tommy Joins the Army [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
Over the Channel: How Tommy Joins the Army They shipped us off at Folkestone and we landed in Calale. And we rode in first-class coaches on our merry, mercy -av. -Going far from Tipperary, going eastward in the night. Singing songs and primed f-r fighting, as would show how fighters fight Then they dumped us at a village, and we hit the dusty road, Bands a-playing, men a-singing, under march ing order load. And the weight was light as feathers, and the day was bright and fine, As we swung along to music to 'our far-flung battle line." There were miles of peaceful farm-lands on the quilted, peaceful plain, There were peasant girls to cheer us as they turned from cutting grain; 'Twas a happy, healthy picture from the morn to set o' sun, And we tramped the quiet evening, getting nearer to the fu ". Up the moon came, rising steady, moving slowly and serene, Till it looked down from the zenith on our mighty human stream. And we heard a distant booming coming faint, yet coming clear; O'er...
How Winter Has Brought a Change to Aerial Warfare [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
How Winter Has Brought a Change to erial W e It will be remembered that in one despatch Field-Mlarshal Sir John French Stated that al most cvery day new methods are discovered for employing the Royal Flying Corps, and are put into practice as soon as disco-ered. Natu rally it is not advisable (writes the Editor of "The Aeroplane") to make known a good many of these new duties, but it may be permissible to point out some of the changes which are taking place in the conditions of aerial war fare, partly due to increased experience, and partly because of the changes of weather con ditions since the early days of the struggle. For the first two months of the war the weather was almost perfect, and the air scouts were able to fly very high and yet observe clearly.. Now, as a rule, the clouds are low, and if an air scout wants to get any informa tion at all he has to come well within rifle and machine-gun-range. It is only surprising that the British aviators still continue to escape bein...
