Two years of warfare'such as the world has never known, such as but few people ever dreamed would be witnessed tn- the twentieth century, have passed by. The late Earl Kit- chener declared the war would last three years. We couldn't believe it et the time he made the statement but'we are .beginning to believe now that he prophesied correctly.
