100 YEARS AGO

Strathearn Herald - - MEMORY LANE -

In these days when one sits down to write an ed­i­to­rial ret­ro­spect, his thoughts of all other na­tional things - great and im­por­tant in their own way, and in nor­mal times - are dwarfed by those on the great strug­gle of ideals which is now be­ing fought to a fin­ish on two con­ti­nents, and in which nearly all the civilised na­tions of the earth are en­gaged on one side or the other.

At the out­set of the year now on its deathbed, one was tempted to hope, and with some cause, that 1917 would see the tri­umph of the cause of the En­tente Pow­ers, and the con­clu­sion of a peace which would for­ever shatter the ar­ro­gance of Prus­sian mil­i­tarism.
