ROWLOCK HELD IN SOCKET BY SPRING LOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
ROWLOCK HELD IN SOCKET BY SPRING LOCK. A self-locking device for holding a rowlock in place is one of the latest inventions in the way of rowboat equipment.' The lower end of the shaft of the rowlock is.encircled by a deep groove. The locking 'feature consists of spring tongue bent near its lower end to form a sharp projection and secured to the socket in such a way that it exerts a strong pressure against the shaft. "When the row lock is forced into the socket the pro jection on the spring snaps into the groove and holds the rowlock in place. The rowlock is easily removed by pulling the spring back by an extension that projects 'well below the socket.
PENALTY OF TRICKERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
PENALTY OF TRICKERY. The enemy blew British whistles for the "Cease fire !" and yelled it out. They also called out "Scott-ee-sh !" One German came up to ony trench with his helmet under his arm and grass round his face, shouting "Indee-an !" But he got in the light of a burning building, and I saw his spike, so I shot him, and the fel low on my right put one in simultaneously. Private R. L. Gait, London Scottish. "Compulsory sales" occupy a whole page of the "Berliner Lokalanzeiger"-a sufficiently il luminating indication of the state of affairs in the German capital. The Iron Cross has been bestowed on a German merchant skipper who broke the parole he gave to the British. Quite fitting.

At that meeting a committee was tormed, and certain resolutions adopted, and it is probable. that a concerted effort is about to be made by the manufactur ers, who will form themselves into a joint stock company, and will be backed up by the Govern ment.

Germany's Aim in Africa: A Fort-Studded Country [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 13 February 1915
Germany's Aim in Africa: A Fort-Studded ,Country The formidable nature of the armed troops in German South-West Africa, against which the operations of General Botha's army are directed, is revealed in an interesting article which Mr. J. K. O'Connor contributes to the "Cape Times." German ambitions in South Africa are no-new thing. As far back as 1890, at the time of the German occupation of the Cameroons, an in spired article appeared in Bismarck's paper, "Das Nachrichten," published in Hamburg, which concluded with the words: "The next piece of African territory to belong to the Fatherland will be the'Transvaal." At a later date a Berlin scheme was engi neered showing how "a few regiments of Prus sian infantry may enter the Transvaal by way of Delagoa Bay, and once and for all hang this annoying question of British suzerainty on the nail." German South-West Africa has always been the jumping-off place in these schemes for an nexation of Great Britain's possessions; and the greates...
COCOANUT CANDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
COCOANUT CANDY. Take equal parts of grated fresh cocoanut and sugar, stir well together in an enamelled pot, and bring to the boil. Take great care the mixture does not burn while you stir, as it is apt to do so. Turn it into a greased tin, and when getting cold cut it into bars or squares and put it up in tin boxes. It is well to dissolve the sugar before putting it into the pan, as this lessens the chance of it' burning.

Airmen who have been Forced into Tight Corners [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Airmen who have been. Forced into Tight Corners One hears every now and then interesting details about the French aviators from people in grance who have been connected with both Fier.ch and British aviation. One 'of chem sends an interesting story about a very fine performance by M. Louis Noel, who was for ?o long one of the most popular aviators at iendon (writes C. G. Grey: editor of the "Aero ploe"). - M. Noel was in the town of Soissons doing ton?e shopping when a shell ireendrd. for the arthtdral pueyhed a hole throu gh he wail tI a house quite "close to his car and burst inside. The local policeman, and various bystanders fled in expectation of another shell falling on the same line, but Noel, according to my in formant, ."ran like a rabbit" into the hole imade by the shell; Thence he rescued the four people of the house, two of them women, and all iounded, though there was every prospect of the house tumbling down in runs on top of him. Since then he has been doing amazing w...
NAVAL MISHAPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
NAVAL MISHAPS. The report of an eye-witness concerning the sinking of a German submarine should not be dismissed as a yarn because it has not been officially confirmed. It is unlikely that Ger many intends to publish details of any sup posed naval losses which we do not know of as certainties. Neither is our Admiralty likely to do the same. In times of peace, with lights burning, sea clear of mines and hostile craft, accidents are constantly occu:ring, so it would be idle to suppose that mishaps are not taking place under the changed conditions. To come out into the open, German ships and sub marines must penetrate an area thickly strewn with mines, and though we hear nothing of our submarines they are likely to be some where in those waters waiting for a favorable opportunity to do some damage.

ADMIRAL KOESTER'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
ADMIRAL KOESTER'S SPEECH. The admission made by Admiral Koester that the German fleet dare not risk combat yet, does not necessarily mean that it will not do so later. N. one knows what they are doing with their filt., but they may be abandoning the construction of the bigger classes and con centrating all sheir attention on the submarine. The latest German vessels of this class have fine fighting and endurance qualities, and von Tirpitz' boast that they possess over 40 such craft is probably correct, but it is ronsense to sav that his flenet f imnr.verl ncusoerinne is numerically superior to ours. It is not; it is at least 25 per cent. inferior. It is easy to understand the German reluctance to hurl their inferox battle fleet against ours, .nless sup ported by a strong under-water fleet, by which they hope to score. This belief if theirs is not wholly confined to their own ofcers. Our own naval expets exlect great results from submarines, but the question is, will Admiral Jellicoe ...
A Soldier Tells of His Feelings Under Shell Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
SA Soldier Tells of His Feedings Under Shell Fire. One of the most human descriptions yet re ceived from the front is the following story of his experiences from a young officer, told in the London "Daily Sketch": : "The other day I and another subaltern were holding a farm in front of our trenches to pre vent the .Germans massing troops behind its cover and rushing us. "We held on for perhaps an hour without any one taking any special notice of us, and then they turned the big guns on us. My hat, we did not half get a time. Within 15 minutes they put 55 shells, weight about 60 pounds and pro bably eight inches in size, fired from a howitzer, into and around the farm within a circle of 50 yards radius. We literally 'smelt hell.' '"Two shells, which followed each other's heels, hit the barn, which was at right angles of the farm house, and smashed it up com pletely. The whole of the farm was covered 'with dirt, splinters and vile smelling smoke, ;n which we choked and spluttered and ...
MINES IN THE SKAGER RACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
MINES IN THE SKAGER RACK. It is a mistake to suppose that there are two ways by which the German Fleet can gain access to the North Sea-by the Kiel Canal or the Skager Rack. The only passage for the larger class of ships through the latter waterway is through a channel which is in Danish waters, and which has been extensively mined. Strategically, this is an advantage to us, because the Russians have enough ships in the Baltic to prove 'a menace to the enemy, so that it is unnecessary for Admiral Jellicoe to send ships to that quarter. Again, the closing of this way out to the German fleet enables Admiral Jellicoe to bring his bases much closer together. Altogether, it is worth from 10 to 12 hours' hard steaming to our fleet, and at the sume time it enables our Com mander-in-Chief to dispose of his ships in such a manner that, while an effectual patrol can be continually maintained, the whole of the fleet can be brought together to engage the enemy whether they steam northward or so...
