WAR DISTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 12 December 1914

WAR DISTANCES. War. besides being a great leveller, la also a great educator. Places we had never even heard of previously aro now becoming as ?familiar in our mouths as household words.' The distances so often mentloned'in despatches are apt to be, somewhat 'contus ing unless understood. l€ ought, however, to bo qulto easy to remember that a' metre measures aDout 1 1-12 yards, or, more ex actly, 39.37 Inches. A decametre is 10 metres » b«=tpmetre If 100 metres, and a kilometre is 1000 metres, or a little more than three flfths of a mile. Our Russian Allies express the length of their marches or the distance from place to place in versts. A vorst is rather more than a kilometre, the exact dis tance being 0.66288 of a mile, or between three-fifths and four-fifths of that distance. The reasons why the war must end soon are almost as convincing as the recent rea sons why there could not bo such a war. ? St. Louis Globe Democrat

Who. since tho time of the Great Elector and Great King, has always been on our side.'— At Berlin, March 29, 190L 'J- vowed never to strike fop wopldman tery. The world-empire that I then dream ed of was to create for tho German Empire on all sides the most absolute confidence as a quiet, honest, and peaceful neighbor. I have vowed that If ever the time came when history should speak of a German ? world power or a Hohenzollern world-power, this should not be based on conquest, but come through a mutual striving of nations after a common purpose.
