Don't know much about this or the author .. maybe they were published during the First World War.

Hunter Beattie seems to have been most well known for Beattie strongly advocating total conscientious objection,

Hunter Beattie lived from 1875 to 1951.
I have a copy of his "The Word of the Cross" No. 20; on page 128 there is a reference to a text in "The Witness" of Dec. 1946 which was replied in "The Word of the Cross" No. 17. So I would guess that No. 17 of "The Word of the Cross" was printed in 1947.
T. Grass says: "Bitter controversy over pacifism beset Open Brethren in Glasgow, where the evangelist Hunter Beattie became an ardent pacifist campaigner, issuing an occasional publication, The Word of the Cross, from October 1915, after local leaders had failed to give clear guidance to believers concerning the right course of action in time of war. After handing out copies of the first number at a conference, he claimed that he was threatened with arrest by leading men." (Gathering to His Name, p. 329)
Perhaps the magazine was issued irregularly.
