German Journalist Admits Defeat is Ultimate [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
German Journalist Admits Defeat is Ultimate Herr von Bethmann Hollweg, the German ? Chancellor, is now the most disliked man in Germany, and, were his dismissal submitted to a public referendum, he would be ousted from power in an hour. His own salvation, writes Rene Feabelmann, in the "Express," is his friendship with the Kaiser, who knows that he will never find anybody who, more devotedly than the present Chancellor, will satisfy his caprices and obey his whims. The fortunes of imperial favor, however, are apt to change quickly, especially when the Em peror is William II., and one morning the Ger mans wilt hear with surprise and with joy that Dr. von Bethmann-Hollweg "has been com pelled by his medical advisers to take a long rest," and that the Kaiser has bestowed on him the Black Eagle, the Iron Cross, and the Order "Pour le Merite," not to speak of the title of duke'or prince.

An Australian's Impressions of a Tour Abroad [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
An Ausralian's mIrressions of a Tour Abroad Fifteen months ago Mr. J. C. Leete, man ager of the Sydney Tivoli for many years in theregime of the late Mr. Harry. Rickards, left for a trip, which was intended as a complete change, affording rest after the bustle of a long association with such an enterprising business as the Tivoli circuit. With him went Mrs. Leete, and their itinerary' was mapped out without the slightest suspicion that it would have to be altered by the Kaiser ."accepting a defensive war." But so it proved, and instead of including Germany and other "ontinental countries in their jaunt, Mr. and Mrs. Leete had to postpone that part of it till some more convenient day. The plans embraced a so ourn in Germany, commehncing last A'tgust, but by that date people were more desirous ot leaving than of entering Germany. A start was made with Egypt, the 'places visited including Luxore, Carnak, Thebes, and Assouan. It was really a case of visiting scenes of former years, for ...
The Chances of Death in Battle are Diminishing [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
The Chances of Death 'in Battle are Diminishing In war, says Alfred J. Lotka, in the "Scien tfic American," laws of chance are operative. As an example, consider an army of 250,000 men who engage in battle with a loss of 50,000 killed and wounded. Suppose the gaps in the ranks are to be filled with reinforcements, and the army, now once more 250,000 strong, to fight a second battle, and so on, the casualties being at each battle 50,000, which are made up by fresh troops before the next encounter. Sup pose five such battles to be fought. What are the chances that a man in the original army of 250,000 shall fight through and survive all the five battles ? The answer is not hard to find. The chances of survival unhurt after the first battle are evidently 200,000/250,000, or 4/5. In the second battle 200,000 men of the ori ginal army are fighting, and if we suppose casualties to be evenly divided among the origi nal men and the fresh troops, then again 4-Sths of the former, i.e., 160,00...

From the Other Side [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
From the Other Side The narrow space of No Man's Land lying between the trenches of the Allies and the Germans is very effectively bridged by a little book which has just been pub lished in Germany under the title "The Great War as Told in Soldiers' Letters." These letters from the firing line contain many striking pictures of the war as seen from the German side: We append so'me extracts dealing with the war in the West 1.-THE DEAD CHASSEUR. Early that morning we had "scuppered" a patrol of. (French) Chasseurs, and captured two who had remained behind.- I went with one of them to where one of their officers, a young man, was lying. I saw at once that he had been'shot through the heart. The Chasseur by my side, who was ob viously very .fond" of his officer, asked 'me anxiously: "Mon officier, vive-t-il ?" . And when I shook my head, saying, "II est mort," the man knelt down and prayed a long time for, his.dead lieutenant. It was a moving pic ture ! The countryside bathed in sunshine...

Notable Theatricals Serving with the Colors [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
Notable Theatricals Serving with the Colors LONDON. December 28. That.so many actors and other members of the theatrical and variety professions have gone, or are preparing to go, to the front will cause no surprise to those who are acquainted with the history of the stage in Great Britain and Ireland. That the remarkable rush of theatrical and variety folk to the colors is due to patriotism alone, and not to the fact that the. war'has caused "bad business" in some entertainment quarters, is evident to all who are personally acquainted with nearly every one of these brave andsbreezy volunteers from "the boards." Many stage-doorkeepers, lime' liglit-men, "fly" men,,, a well as actors and comic singers, who saw service in their younger days, and are now beyond the age limit, have insisted upon going. THE ARTS AT DRILL. - As for those actors, actor-managers, dramat ists, composers, and others who cannot go in for active service, they, too, are diligent day and night for King and countr...
At Home in the World of Nature [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
At Home in the World of- Nature By "Cammaray" Not before it was time, the New South Wales Government has decided to prohibit the shoot ing of wild ducks this year-that is, the usual open season, which commences on February 1 and terminates on June 30, will be closed, and it .will be illegal for anyone to kill wild ducks until the open season commences again next year. The Victorian Government took this action before the shooting season commenced, but in New South Wales the shooters had eight clear days, and everyone knows that the heaviest slaughter of partially protected game takes place in the first week of the open sea son. The result of this want of co-operation between the New South Wales and Victorian Governments was that Victorian "sportsmen," deprived of the usual shooting in their own State, crossed the Murray and took advantage of the laxity of the New South Wales autho rities. Unless strong measures are taken, there is very real danger that some of the species of wild duc...
"IN THE INTERESTS OF SCIENCE." [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
"IN THE INTERESTS OF SCIENCE." The most extraordinary experiments are some times submitted to by naturalists "in the in terests of science." Medical men swallow nauseous potions, entomologists submit to bites from noxious insects, and explorers often from necessity test the edibility of strange beasts and plants. One of the most curious experiences on record was recently undergone by a European scientist, Glaser, who was investigating the ox warble fly which ruins cattle hides. After watching a. female laying 538 eggs on. a cow in three-quarters of an hour, each on a single hair, he saw one laid on his own trousers. The mag got hatched, from the egg, bored through the skin of the scientist's leg, and disappeared in I hour. Four or five days" later the larvm could be felt'threitgh "th skin. This was in mJune. It apparently'worked Its way upwards, fdr early' in September'swellngs-were apparent on the'hip and abdomen, and at the end of the month a swelling in'the lower end of the gul l...
PASSENGER PIGEONS NOW EXTINCT. [Newspaper Article] — The Globe and Sunday Times War Pictorial — 20 February 1915
PASSENGER PIGEONS NOW EXTINCT. The last passenger pigeon is dead. The sole remaining survivor of the countless thousands of these beautiful birds was fo:nd. at the.foot of its.roost in its cage at the Cincinnati, U.S.A., Zoological Gardens a few weeks ago; .and the race is now as extinct as the ank and the moa. It has been decided to send the body of the bird to the Smithsonian Institite at Washington, and have it mounted. -All the feathers which the bird shed for several=nontlis prior to its death were preserved, and sent with it, so that the taxidermists would be able to restore the bird to as nearly its natu ral appeariance as possible. The passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) was the most beautiful pigeon America possessed. ..Mainly because of its beauty, it was ruthlessly slaughtered. The male was a bluish-grey bird, with black spots on the wings, which were longer than the tail. The breast.was of a red dish-cinnamon color, shading into pale purple. The back and sides of t...
