Captions on some Japanese propaganda postcards

A while ago I found a 1904 magazine article on the Russian-Japanese war that included some pictures of Japanese propaganda postcards. Unfortunately the article doesn't translate the text on the pictures. I've been thinking of putting the article on line, and I'd like to include translations if possible.

Unfortunately they weren't reproduced incredibly clearly - I can try for a clearer scan if anyone thinks it will help, but I think this may be as good as it's going to get. What I'm hoping is that they are already be translated somewhere, so if anyone can point me at a source that would be great. I've tried a few searches and found a couple on line with URLs or captions that may be translations of the text, but it would be nice to confirm that. Some just don't give any useful results. Pictures are below the cut.

Many thanks!
