100 years ago

Drill sergeants’ language

100 years ago: LORD KITCHENER has taken pains to impress upon the men of his new army the duty of sobriety. This is well, but from all we hear, we are inclined to think that a word from his lordship on temperance of language would not come amiss

The King’s loyal dominions

100 years ago: In every corner of the King's dominions at home and overseas there is a superb rally to a cause which all alike feel to be their common cause

Pope Benedict XV elected

100 years ago: The Church Times congratulated the Roman conclave on choosing the strongest cardinal as the new pope, Benedict XV. "He is younger than most Popes have been at their accession, and this makes a continuous policy for a number of years probable."

Conscription needed

100 years ago: IT SEEMS that recruiting is going on briskly, especially in the last few days, but young men are not flocking to the colours with the speed that apparently Lord Kitchener would wish

German atrocities reported

100 years ago: THE English newspapers are full of accounts of wicked and wanton barbarities perpetrated by the German army in Belgium, and refugees from Germany tell us that the German newspapers provide counter-charges of the same kind against the Belgians

Death of Pope Pius

100 years ago:  HASTENED by the cataclysm which has fallen upon the European world, the death of the Pope has come as a shock to those whose thoughts have been absorbed by the news from the area of war

England an armed camp

100 years ago: FOR little more than a week we have been in a state of war, yet within that short space we seem to have lived a whole life-time. Sudden as a bolt from the blue there has fallen on us the necessity wholly to re-order our lives in unaccustomed ways. 

Menace of a ‘great war’

ALL Europe, at the moment, stands face to face with the menace of a great and devastating war

Daughters of Levi

100 years ago: In these days of sentimental bishops and eccentric deans, we seem to be without any security against the most extreme revolutionary changes, and we could welcome the reappearance of Wesley, to discourse upon his former text, with one verbal alteration: "Ye take too much upon you, ye daughters of Levi."

Joseph Chamberlain dies

100 years ago: SOME years ago the career of Joseph Chamberlain came to a tragic end, and last week his life was brought to a close.
