THE WAR

NEW ZEALAND NURSES FOR FRONT. [Per United Press Association.] WELLINGTON, January 11. Replying to inquiries made by the Hon. Mr Allen, the Federal Minister of Defence has cabled: " Not anticipated that any muses as reinforcements will bo required for some months. If reliefs are. sent, will endeavor to include some New Zealand nurses." A WONDERFUL DRTvAM. The Russian papers are more and more inclined to take tho view that the Emperor William is insane. They cite his recent proclamation to the Poles at Gzenstochowa, in which he referred to a- mira-culous ringing of the bells at the Sviatogorosky monastery, and declared that it denoted his decision to make, war on Russia, restore the sacred possessions of Poland, and unite Poland to Germany, the most cultured country. The Kaiser added: I had a wondrous dream. The. Virgin appeared to me, and entrusted me with the rescne of her sacred habitation. Sha gazed at me tearfully, and I went forth to execute her holy will. The Kaiser called on the Poles to meet the German troops as their brothers and saviours. Those who were with him, he said, would be amply rewarded, while those who were against him would perish. He concluded with these words: "With me are God and tho Holy Virgin, who have drawn the German sword in aid of Poland." MISCELLANEOUS. On Saturday M«6*rp E. and J. Berwick wore made presentations by tho employees of Messrs Sfrronaeh. Morris, and Co., on the occasion of their leaving to join tiie. Otago reinforcements. Mr J. Mitchell, who mado the presentation?—a case of pipes to Mr Kenneth- and a safety razor and toilet outfit to "Mr Berwick—congratulated them, upon the derision thev had made, and wished them good luck on behalf of their fellow-employee?. Hjp worthy of not* that six of the employers of the firm have now volunteered. Three recruits for the reinforcements were accorded a send-off entertainment at Port Chalmers on Saturday night. Mementoes of esteem were presented to them. Arthur Hill was presented with a pipe, R. Buchan with a sum of money, and W. Hamilton with a gold-mounted fountain pen. In addition each man was given a serviceable razor. Mr E. Oodfrcd, in making the presentations, wished the. recipients God-speed and a safe return. "My neutral informants tell me there is now practically no more tea in Gormanv," writes W. F." Vile, in the 'Daily Mail.' What is sold and served as such is described as tasting like. hay. Coffee, it is said, will almost have completely disappeared by Christmas, and r'ice is' already a vanished commodity. Austria, is facing a flour famine, with no prospect of relief from Germany, which is already baking a good deal of its bread of potato meal. But Germans hear all their discomforts in the luxurious hope of the forthcoming conquest of England.'*
