    With it being 'census year with the world', the exponential increase of the global population is being made clear by 'fresh statistical result[s]'. There has been an increase of '48,000,000 in the last ten years, with more to follow. The figures bewilder one'. (424) Also records the death of Helmuth K B F von Moltke, the 'supreme embodiment of the military science of our time', and reflects 'What a contrast between the blustering Mars who was the war god of our ancestors, and this calm, reserved, and studious Alchemist of Victory!' (429).
