The Fetching "Figure." [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 20 July 1915
The Fetching "Figure." Blinkers was not a beauty. His calves were too flabby for cavalier costume, liis arms were too thin for the garb of ancient Vikings, and his face too reminiscent of a disappointed lemon to admit of any heroic head gear. Everybody wondered, therefore, what ho would appear as at tha Fun noybodys' fancy dress hall. The night arrived. Hamlet leaned sadly against a wall, while William the Conqueror threw bitter glances at a crowd at the other end of the room. "What ho, Bill!" cried Oliver Cromwell, arriving late. "Feeling seedy, old man?" "We all are," growled Bill the First. "Blinkers has done UB in the eye, after all." "Blinkers! How?" "He's come as a Bargain, marked down to one-and-eleven," croaked the Conqueror, "and every blessed girl In the place is lighting to get near him."

The bugle was sounding the "last post" as Captain Henderson left tlie British encampment, and, passing the outlying sentries, struck into a low, rocky defile. It was against orders for anyone to wander beyond the outposts at that hour, but a spirit of unrest seemed to possess the young oflicer, urging him onward against his better judgment. The English mail had arrived early that morning, but to his bitter disap pointment there was no communica tion of any kind for himself. True, the orderly who had ridden for the letters had been almost ready to swear that he had brought a small package for Captain Henderson; but, alas: he must have been mistaken; for Colonel Lomax was positive that nothing of the kind was in the bags when he opened them. Seeing himself upon a rocky pro tuberance, Jaclc mused a trifle bitter ly upon his lot, endeavoring to per suade himself that he was the most hardly-used and badly-neglected man in existence.. The bright light of the moon, which had already risen,...
DOGS IN WAR CANINES GIVE FAITHFUL SERVICE AT THE FRONT. They Look for Wounded and Bring Back Caps to Direct Stretcher Bearers To Them. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 20 July 1915
DOGS IN WAR CANINES GIVE FAITHFUL SERVICE AT THE FRONT. They Look for Wounded and Bring Back Caps to Direct Stretcher Bearers To Them. Dogs are too good friends o£ men to stay neutral in this great war, : writes a contributor to the Paris "Fi I gavo." They want to be with the sol j diers. But the times are past when ! squads of eager canines, with panting I tongues and tails erect, used to romp 'in front of the marching columns. Nowadays the troops travel by rail, and the dogs have all they can do in keeping pace with the supply auto mobiles in the rear. Yet you hardly I see a picture from the iront in which there does not appear one or more of j these faithful quadruped free lances, j They are on the spot when the'com ? manding general hands out decora : tions for bravery to his valiant sol ' diers. They are found flanking the | snare drums of the band when the ' regiment passes in review. I Then there are the real professional war dogs. Wliat they do is not men tioned in the despa...

Two months later, lrnia Leith re ceived a letter from lier lover, con taining a carefully revised account of a brush they had had with the enemy, "Do you know, darling," he wrote, "Colonel Lomax is a brick. If there is a hazardous or dangerous expedition on hand, I am given the command. When there is heavy fighting, 1 am ordered to the front. At this rate promotion is certain, and for your sake I am exceedingly glad. The colonel came over to my quarters the day before yesterday, and after a I long confab turned the subject to home and you. Somehow, before 1 I knew it almost, he hud wormed the | facl out of me that we were engaged, and that nothing but our hurried de parture from England prevented Uie ' r.ows being made public before 1 left, j 1m heartily congratulated me, and 1 rationed that lie had aspired to your I hand himself.

THROUGH NEUTRAL EYES U.S.A. JOURNALIST DESCRIBES TRIP THROUGH WAR THEATRE. LIFE IN THE TRENCHES. "VICTORIA" STREET THE ONLY BRITISH NAME LEFT IN BERLIN. Mr. Lafayette Young, a newspaper proprietor and prominent journalist I in America, has just returned to ?his) own country from a visit to the war zone in France. He was formerly a United States Senator. Here is what he said:- i "I regard my t;ip to the French army in Northern France as interest- j ing. I had mucli curiosity to see the : trenches. With a proper escort I in- i spected the hospitals at Amiens and | the aeroplane grounds some ten miles ! distant; then the lines of artillery in J the valley of the Aisue, and then on j the third day put in the time in the first line of trenches. There is much difference between the first and sec ond line trenches. The first line trenches are nearest to the enemy. We marched through one trench for quite a long distance, which was only forty feet from the German trenches, yet not a man coul...

UNITED STATES OPINION. WILD BKAST LOOSE IN THE WORLD. Tbo "New York Tribune," in nn editorial article dated May 11, says. "Let no German mistake the temper of fcho American people; let no German higii or low misunderstand the new vision which has come to our citizens in the days, which they have stood beside their murdered fellcw citizens. "Whether we now join in the war, whether we now draw the aword henceforth and until the destruction of those who today dominate Germany, the American people will look upon the nations who are fighting the Ger« mans as allies. They will hope and pray for their success. Many millions will regret that American soldiers are not in those lines doing America's pnrt in the battle to defend civilisation. "Let none mistake this fact. A wild beast is loose in the world, a creature com bining the ferocity of the animal with the lust of the degenerate human.

The troop-train was starting as I rushed on to the platform. There was no time for thinking what I was do ing if I meant to go by it, so I just jumped on to the foot-board and somebody pulled me into one of the carriages, where the first face I saw was ;the captain's-cold and stern, and quite himself again. "That was a narrow shave, my roan," said a pleasant voice from the gentleman who'd 'elped me iu; "it wasn't my fault, either." The captain didn't speak at all, but I felt very small as 'is eye looked me over, condemniogly. It seemed as If I always showed up in a bad light be fore 'im. It wasn't a good start, but things moved too quick afterwards to think much about it. From train to boat and from boat to train-right to the Front, where,we went straight into the trenches to take the place of the dead or dying, and to relieve men who'd been holding them for many ' days past, in the teeth of an over whelming number of the enemy. Whatever fault I'd had to find with the captain before...

THE GIRL LEFT BEHIND I. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 20 July 1915
THE GIRL LEFT BEHIND There was a bad feeling between me an' the captain before a gentle man with bits of ribbons in his 'at pulled me on one side one morning last August, and told, me I was the very man they'd been keeping a place for in tlie best regiment in training for the Front, so it was real bad luck to find that that "best" regiment was to hold both me and him-meaning Captain Shrewsbury. He scowled when he saw me marcli in with the latest batch of recruits, an' I confess 1 tried to slink behind Smith until the captain called out, in a voice of thun der: "Halloa! you Atkins! So you've come to be licked into shape at last, have you? Well, tlie sooner you can change from a country lout into a smart soldier the better it will be for everybody concerned"-turning off very sharp and sudden when he'd fin ished speaking, without giving a fel low a chance to reply. | "By gum!
