Serbs Crushed by Gun Power. TONS OF METAL OPEN WAY FOR INVASION OF COUNTRY BY INFERIOR TEUTONIC SOLDIERY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916

Serbs Crushed by Gun Power. TONS OF METAL OPEN WAY FOR INVASION OF COUNTRY BY INFERIOR TEUTONIC SOLDIERY. The Serbian Army was not beaten by the Germans; it was compelled to retreat continually because nothing could face the deluge of shells which the enemy had substituted for his soldiers. Such is tho conclusion of M. Henry Barby, who was with tfic Serbinn forces from the beginning to the end of the last tragic campaign, and who 'writes for the Paris "Journal" the r.torv of the crushing of Serbia. H is a bitter narrative, and although. :is Mr. Barbv observes, it is not yet the moment to fasten the responsibility, yet one cannot but be moved and an cored as one realises how the heroic little nation waged a magnificent but ; hopeless and vain struggle. Husbanding his men. Mackensen ob tained all his results with a mini mum of troops, but with a formidable mass of artillery and a veritable orgy of munitions.

London. Letter. Carmelite House, London, — February 6, 1916. January has been such a month of beautiful spring days that Londoners received quite a shock when they woke up on the last day of the month and found themselves surrounded by a funereal pall of brown fog. In the city, where the morning gloom was thickest, and people gasped and wept as they struggled through the wind less, smut-laden atmosphere, there were more lights ablaze in shop-win dows and high storied buildings than have been seen for many a long d;iy. It was a change characteristic of Eng lish weather, for only two ilava before, on Saturday, the sunny warmth and the feeling of vernal freshness in the air would have satisfied even in April. London, sunbathed and with violets and snowdrops in the streets, was a cheerful town. It was the first of the year's Saturdays which find all who own a garden busy therein. Much soil was dug, many beds prepared, seed of broad lieans and eariy peas sown before nightfall. So much ne...

RED INDIANS ON THE PRAIRIE [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 30 March 1916

RED INDIANS ON THE PRAIRIE When the Kansas Pacific Railway was first opened the Indians were very hostile, and there was constant fear that they would wreck the trains and that they did not is due to theii ignorance of the iron home and oi the best methods of destroying it. One engine-driver had an experience with the Cheyenncs that he will never lorget.

They were never satisfied with simp ly cutting the wire, but choppcd it into pieces with their tomahawks to etTectually stop the mysterious mes sages. Aa the train approached » large patch of Mowers which grew 03 both sides of the line, over one hun dred Indians rose up, atrctchnd c strong rope across the track, braceO themselves, and prepared to receive tho shock of the locomotive. As was afterwards learned, they had la'-en raw-hide strips, braided them to gether, and, with a force of fifty at each end of...
