Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 25 September 1914
The Non-Advertiser. ♦ Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, For him no bank account shall swell. No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That nanghtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chutnp who wouldn't advertise."

Brutal Germans. LONDON, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 25 September 1914
Brutal Germans. LONDON, Tuesday. In desciibing the sacking of Lou vaiu, in Belgium, which she wit nessed, a Red Cross nurse confirms every detail of the worst stories of German brutality. She saw defenceless citizens called to their doors and shot with revol ve! s. Bodies were heaped together. Women were frequently, threat ened with rifles aud told they were were to be shot at a certain hour ; then they were spared. This treat ment of women was the outcome of a wanton desire to torture. Every man possessing a knife larger than a penknife, or who delayed putting up his hands, or failed to understand the order to do so, was immediately shot. Two priests who were blessing 6.00 women were threatened with death, then led away and shot.
