THE AMERICAN GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915

THE IRON CROSS. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915
THE IRON CROSS. Old Bill, the German Kaiser, |s surely not a miser, wliate'er his faults may be; how lavishly ho tosses his famous iron crosses to all whom he may see! "My men," says Kaiser Billy, "the foe may knock you silly, and cause you grievous loss; but show a courage splendid, for when the scrap is ended, each man will gsi a cross. The war is growing rougher, but courage, ye who suffer, through dismal days and nights, in trenches and in fosses, for I have iron crosses for .everyone -who fights! My heroes, do not beg off, if someone shoots a leg off, or bathes you in your gore; I, William, do assure you, an iron cross will cure you, and make you sound once more. My rusty iron crosses are better faT than josses, or any voodoo charms; the dead they'll promptly quicken, they'll heal the sorely strick en, and grow new legs and arms. For mumps and indigestion they're best, beyond a question, they're fine for bullet-lioles; for toothache they are splendid, and they are recommended f...
THE EFFECTS OF THE GASES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915
THE EFFECTS OF THE GASES. By an Army Doctor Tlie effect of the gas is intense irritation of the bronchial mucoim and this produces quantities ofcleu fluid -which fills the tubes and cannot be expelled. Death is from suffocation, with almost full con sciousness; you may see one maai signing to a nurse by turning his head vigorously from side to side. I am told, but have not myself scon it, that post mortem showed the mucosa and more to bq de stroyed by the corrosive action of the gas. Very little coughing is * heard-hardly any. Can nothing be done for them? Yes, something can. They are . being given quantities of salt and water to drink to make them sick. Even if they only retch,, quantit ies of clear, frothy liquid are ex pelled from the lungs. When the lungs are empty, oxygen is given, if possible, and heart stimulants. Patients are be'st laid on their sides. Artificial breathing is done. You are appalled, horror-struck at the devilishness of it. Think! Done on purpose, the result ...

AT OSTEND. The Kaiser and the Kalsering Were walking on the sand; They gazed beyond the sea to where The cliffs of Dover stand; "If we could only get across," They said, "It would be grand!" "If flfty Huns, with fifty guns, "Shelled it for half a year, "Do you suppose," the Kaiser said, "That they could sweep it clear?" "I doubt it," said the Kaiserling, And sipped his lager beer. Women are assuredly wearing more clothes than they used to In the fr|. volous days before the war. In fact, a charming lady declined an Invita tion ou the ground that she "had so many things on"!

I'll show these blanlty-blanlt dragoons the sort of bloke I am." The rest of us was lyin' low and duckin' to the shell, but Boggits 'e rode forth alone to wards the rpouth of 'ell.

FORTUNES IN PATENT FOODS MAN WITH FOUR MILLIONS SHOOTS HIMSELF., Romance of Business. Even in America, where men of the type o£ "get-rich-quick Walllng ford" abound, the career o£ Mr. Charles William Post, of Washington, probate i of whose will was announced recent ly, was a notable one. I Mr. Post, who was head of the Postum Cereal Company (makers of Grape Nuts and other patent foods), left the huge fortune of £4,294,423 all made in twenty years! His end was a tragic one. On May 9 last year lie shot himself at Santa I Barbara (California) after he had been in ill-health for a long time. At | the inquest his nurse testified that his death was the end of a long fight against an uncontrollable desire to kill himself. Only two months pre viously he had rushed home from Bat tle Creek, Michigan, l>y a special, fastest train on record, in order to be operated on for appendicitis. As has been the case with many more successful Americans, Mr. Post was broken in health at an early age, an...
IN THE SULTAN'S CAPITAL CITY OVER-RUN BY SAVAGE HORDES. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915
|IN THE SULTAN'S CAPITAL] CITY OVER-RUN BY SAVAGE HORDES. (By SELIM DJEVAD BEY, in the Now York "Sun.") Selim Djevad Bey, formerly pro prietor of tlie oldest daily newspaper in Constantinople, is now a refugee at Cambridge, Mass. (U.S.A.). He' is sixty years of age, and for thirty-live years he was engaged' in the news paper business in Constantinople. For the last ten years he was owner of the Constantinople daily called "Saba!)." The sufferings brought on the city by the war are described be low. The Anglo-French fleet will even tually force the Dardanelles; no Turk in Constantinople disputes that. Even the ranking army and navy officials will admit that very gravely, but of course privately. It is also true that the Allies will have to pay dearly for such a victory. But even a costly victory is worth winning, because it is a foregone conclusion that the Turk's power of endurance will be shattered with the entrance of the Allied fleet into the Sea of Marmora. The military importan...
SPLINTER IN HEART French Doctor's Astounding Operation. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915
SPLINTER IN HEART French Doctor's Astounding Operation. An operation unique in the annals of surgery, the extraction of a frag ment of hand grenade from the heart, was recently described at the French Academy of Medicine, by Professor Armaingaud, of Bordeaux. The patient, a young Parisian ser geant of rather delicate constitution, who was present at the session, was wounded at St. Hubert, In the Ar gonne. A splinter, a centimetre and a-half square, and three millimetres thick, penetrating the diaphragm, the pericardium, and the cardiac muscle, lodged In the right veslcule of the heart, where it remained four and a half months. Dr. Maurice Beaussenat undertook to extract it. Once the heart was made open the difficulties began. The fragment was very awkward to catch, and slipped from the forceps several times before it could he got out, but the heart continued to beat all the time. Although complications were feared, everything went well, and the sergeant could be considered cured a m...
HUSH! THE HUN [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915
HUSH! THE HUN "Hush! here comes the terrible Hun!" Mothers will say In the days to come; j ("The Bogey Man has had his day, The terror of him has passed away). And when the child starts in affright At an unknown dread, in the dead of night; When shapeless forms peer through the gloom At the innocents iu the children's room, 'Twill not be the Bogey Man who's come. But the evil form of the hungry Hun. Stained with the blood of the help less babe, Through rivers of horror his feet will wade; Soaked with the salt of the widow's tears. He carries a cargo of nameless fears. Hate on his face, with mad fangs bared, See the harvest of heads he's snared Heads from the shoulders of infants small, From the Belgian soil where he spread his pall. (Blighted the land where his brutal tread Crushed along through the maimed and dead.) "Hush your crying now, Little One, Hush, or I'll call the hideous Hun." Fathers will speak in the days to come Of the frightful toll of the Hate-mad Hun, Of the brute w...
AERIAL TORPEDOES New Weapon Employed by the Germans. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 13 July 1915
AERIAL TORPEDOES New Weapon Employed by the Germans. The Germans outside Ossowiecz tried air torpedoes as a means of de stroying the reinforced concrete forts. The torpedoes are a substitute for the "thick Bertha" shells, and for the shells from tho Austrian twelve-inch mortars. The air torpedoes are small dirig ible balloons. They carry no crew, and are propelled by a compressed air motor. They can travel several miles. The charge consists of about 501b. of gun cotton in a thin cylinder, which is released automatically after the torpedo has travelled a certain distance. The lower end of the cyl inder is cone-shaped. Further de-, tails of construction are not known.
