"DANCE, WILLIAM!" NEW SCOTCH REEL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 28 November 1914

'DANCE, WILLIAM!' NEW SCOTCH REEL. An old Scotch lady, living In France, has forwarded to the Times an amusing account ol tho arrival of tho Highlanders in Melun (Franco), where sho resides. The French women of tho -place were much alarmed by tho appearanco of the brave Highlander/!, nut tho old lady calmed their fears by going out on to the pavement and singing Scots Wha Hao at the top of her voice. Somo days af terwards tho cannon sounded very near to the town, and tho old lady went forth to nuiko some inquiry. She went into the street and said to a demure, douce young Highlan der, Do you thinK tno Germans are com ing?' Whereupon tho young Highlander re sponded, with characteristic Scotch caution, ?Tvg been hearing, matam, that tho Cher mnns will hafe been hafing a pit of a set back.' It was in this modest Scotch manner that tho old lady heard of tho battlo of the Marne, and tho news so inspired her that she composed tho following new Scotch reel, which the Times published:— Dance...

AFTER THE FIGHT. WHAT A BATTLEFIELD LOOKS LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 28 November 1914

AFTER THE FIGHT. WHAT A BATTLEFIELD LOOKS LIKE. I am not ..asked to describe a battlefield while tho conflict rages, and It is as well (writes Frank Scudamore, the veteran war correspondent). To do so would be almost impossible, for the conduct of any fight varies with the combatants, the weapons employed, and the nature of the country. But when ono comes to the aftermath of battlo, when the tide of victorious or defeated humanity has surged ahead or ebbed away, then one Is on surer ground. Always, wnetner me struggle nam own big or little, there falls upon the now al most deserted battle-ground a great silence, and a most deep and abiding sense of i-eacc. I know tills Is contrary to what has been written In fiction', to what has been painted In pictures of great battlefields. I speak, however, from what I have seen, not from my imagination. Those pen or paint-brush pictures of death in every hideous form of distortion, of wounded men rending the skies with their cries and lamentati...

FAMOUS DESPATCHES. MESSAGES THAT THRILLED THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 28 November 1914

FAMOUS DESPATCHES. MESSAGES THAT THRILLED THE WORLD. The despatches of Wellington from the Peninsula arc clussics of their kind, so con centrated and masterly arc they, but possibly the most memorable despatch which ever reached England lies under a glass case | in the British Museum. It is the despatch j announcing the Battle of Trafulgar and the i death of Nelson. It Is one of the great thril ling messages of the world, a message which meant, although perhaps not even English statesmen realised it at the time, that com mand of the sea and that immunity of iaig lumi's shores and the shores of her great colonies from fear of attack which go with a supreme Navy. The despatch is simple and unadorned. It was written by Nelson's second In command, the noble Colllngwood. 'The evertobcla ; mented death,' it runs, 'of Vice-Admiral Lord Viscount Nelson, who, in the late con flict with the enemy, fell In the hour of vic tory.' Then follows an account of the great light, concluding with a gen...

The German sp««M who aiy striving so hard to raise havoc in tho hear: of our lund havo dihcovoiea uiiotiici method of carrying out their uasunt.y work. Some have assumed the roie ol ttie ^muggier —not with tobacco, whisky, or such contra band, but witli cargo of more warlike natun —ammunition. During a few clays .Mauser rifle cartridges, all fully loaded, were picked up in Blyth (Northumberland) uaruor. The«je extraordinary ilnds havo crtated the strong opinion that a scheme or wholesale smuggling of German ammunition into the town and probably other parts of the coun try, has been undertaken by our enemies. While seeking for mussels about the 13lyth- rtnith timbers at low tide, a 'man picked up a cartiidgo, und afterwards hauled out of the mud a suck partly filled with more cart ridges. The weight of the ammunition had burst a holo in the bottom of tho sa...

Beauty Is Only Skin Deep.
