War and the Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914
War and the Woman. ft? MAX PEMBBBTOM. ? He found himself imitating Palcologuc by and by, and calling her name aloud. The attempts of the sentries to get the pair of them back to the house were met by thrust upon thrust ; a good square push from the shoulder here and a dive into au opening there. Gradually they won thqir way up the street, but could not find her; and upon that a sense of desperation drove them to some imprudence, and they began to deal iu blows. Such madness might have brought a swift penalty but for the fire which the priest's death had kindled. The God of Ranovica, design ing that these people should perish to bear witness to their faith, willed also that Ranovica should fall with them, and that the priest should be the instrument. From this body the flames had run to the crazy house; from the house to the church, and thence to the narrow street, which instantly became aglow. Faber found himself pressing forward amid showers of sparks, and still crying 'Mary- ska —...
Public Opinion. To the Editor WESTERN AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914
Public Opinion, j To the Editor WESTERN AGE. j ? t Sir,- Although I havo a great aver sion to seeking notoriety por medium of the public press, I must take ex ception to tlio alleged report in your edition ol In day bonded ' Aid Bol ton's Hunt. Ho will not resign' (contributed), as it is entirely mis leading and but a lii-.tortiou of what I Raid. I ncvor referred to a distinguished alderman,' nor did I say Christo pher Columbus discovered America aud Captain Cook discovered Austra lia.' What I said was Christo pher Columbus and Captain Cook earned groat fame as discovorers, but tboir fame has boon cclipsed by tlio wonderful discovorios of a' distin guished military oliicer who is an alderman, of tliiw Council. A cer tain alderman then rose in boated protost, aud I consequently enquired of him, ' What, are you tho distin* gtiishod military otlioer?' — for bo it remembered I had not named any one ! I stated that I had carefully road the decision quoted as fatal to my position, and com...
IN BERLIN. SOME MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914
IN BERLIN. SOME MISTAKES. An exceedingly interesting account of af fairs in Berlin has Just been received from the Berlin correspondent of the iNieuwo Rot tcrdumsche Courant, writes the Rotterdam correspondent of the London Dally Telegraph. Tlio former mentions that a campaign has been started against the 'everlasting appear ance of rejoicing in the Prussian capital.' Flags hang from almost every window in some parts of the town, and In working-class quarters they keep up their courago by deco rating the roofs of the houses until, it is de clared, they look like llower-beds. According to the anti-llag-waggers, soldiers returning from the front aro angry at this display In 'quiet days,' as little more could bo done when a great victory was won. Tho women, too, havo given trouble. To the French prisoners Berlin women wished to present flowers and show various kindnesses. This shocked a portion of tho community, ?but a distinguished clergyman, Herr Traub, bus taken up the ladies' cause...
WAR AND WEATHER. NATURE IN STRATEGY. VALUE OF METEOROLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914
WAR AND WEATHER. NATURE IN STRATEGY. VALUE OF METEOROLOGY. A complaint that our press reports of the great European conflict give little Informa tion of weather conditions, 'which havo everything to do with military operations,' is made by an* instructor ait Fort Leavenworth, .^nVi&Tsr iu a letter to the New York Times. He adds that to army officers in particular the daily temperature, rainfall, direction and velocity 01 tne wmu, in au parts or the thea tre of war, are of more importance and in tcrcst than columns of material regarding skirmishes, reconnaissances, &c. Such data are difficult to get after the occurrence, and any record that aims to be of permanent his torical value should contain them. Com menting upon this complaint, The Scientific American says in its editorial column: 'It is true that the weather has occasion ally cropped up in the war news, though so casually and modestly that its immense im portance In shaping the course of events has been, appar...

RUSSIAN HEROISM. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914
RUSSIAN HEROISM. Not unaproj/os or the present Eastern situ ation is the story printed by the Kansas City Star, written by a Russian Jew, Nathan Frutko. An exile from Russia, he tells of his former assignment, as a physician in the employ of that Government, to the district of Yakutsk, a huge province in northern-central Siberia. Here an' epidemic of typhoid was raging, and thither Journeyed tho doctor with ins start oc nurses anu assistants. But the situation that faced them there was hopeless in tlie extreme. These poor peasants whom they were called upon to treat wero dying not of typhoid. In reality, but of starvation, which hud so weakened them that the ravages of disease could not be stayed by any medi cal skill. To the Government there was no appeal; and the one course of action which they took speaks eloquently for the calibre of these people who threaten soon to pour their hordes into the European arena. Of the situation In Yakutsk and the realisation of their helpless plig...
DEFENCES OF CRACOW. KEY TO EASTERN WAR. STRONG FORTIFICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 19 December 1914
DEFENCES OF CRACOW. KEY TO EASTERN WAR. STRONG FORTIFICATIONS. In the castprn theatre of war, In tho wes tern part of Gnilcla, the colossal fortress or Cracow Is attracting tho attention of all tho strategists of tho world (writes Lieut.-Col. Roustam Belt in the London Daily Express). Tho importance of this strategic point for Germany is so great that the Kaiser, in spite fill hin tlncided to concentrate considerable forcos to support the Austrlans in defence of this fortress. Of course, It is clear that this first-class fortress presents in Itself the only binding point between tho German and Austrian armies on the one hand, while on the other hand tho Russians could not have freedom for further operations against Germany until tho Russian flag was hoisted over its forts. Cracow bars tho main routes which lead round tho Carpathians. It dominates all other routes, and defends the crossings over tho Vistula, and at the same time forms i base for an active defence of tho Car pathians....

ROYALLY DONE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 23 December 1914
ROYALLY DONE. A refreshing little incidont of royalty without iU crown was reported re cently. Accompanied only by his dog, the old King of Wurtemburg takes many long walks along the shores of Lake Con stance during the summer. Recently he crossed in a little tourist steamer to Korschach, on toe Swiss shore. As a simple traveller he entered a restaur ant, and ordered a sandwich. 1 ' You have a beautiful dog there, ' remarked the waitress. 'Yes, more beautiful than 1 am,' the King replied. 'That is true,' said tho girl, simply; 'and cortainly ho is far younger.' 'You are perfectly right.' When ho had eaten the sandwich, the King departed, leaving a gold piece on tho table. Tho girl ran after him, to say that he had aorgotten his change. 'Ob, no,' tho King said, 'you are to keep the gold piece as a remembrance of the King of Wurtemberg, to whom you have paid the unaccustomed com pliment of sincerity.'
BULGARIAN PROVERBS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 23 December 1914
BULGARIAN PROVERBS. A picturesque music-loving and poeti cal people are tbo Bulgarians. That they are, however, inclined to be somewhat pessimistic will bo evident from the fol lowiug scloction from somo of the com monest Bulgarian proverbs. The life of a man is a long dark night, is ono of their favourite say ings, anil among others might be men tioned — Only the nightingale can understand the rose. Before Ciod you may say, '1 can not,' but not before men. ?Strangers forgive, parents forget. One's own pain is better than an other's happiness. When tbo cloth is woven the loom goes to the garret. Better tbo child should weep than tho mother of tho child. Two happy days arc seldom brothers. The lame man laughs at the man with no legs at all. Crooked chimneys send the smoke up straight. If a man is doomed to live tho medi cine to cure him will be found. Tho Greek will fall because ho boasts; the. Bulgar because of his pigheaded ness.
