"Yeomen of England." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

"Yeomen of England." General Sir Ian Hamilton's stirring words of praise of the Yeomanry, during the operations on Gallipoli Peninsula, must have brought home to the heart of every Briton a greater appreciation of the sterling services the "Yeomen of England" rendered to their country in her hour of need. "The advance of these 'English Yeomen,' " said Sir Ian, "was a eight calculated to send a thrill of pride through anyone with a drop of English blood running in their veins. . . . Despite the critical events in other parts of the field, I could hardly take my glasses from the Yeo men ; they moved like men marching on parade !" Thus, then, did the "Yeomen of England" boar out the traditions of their fox-hunting sires of bygono days' throughout their baptisms of fire, through the hell of the fighting beyond Suvla Bay. Much, however, aa the work of this magnificent force is appreciate^, the "man in the street" knows little or nothing of its history, or traditions. Yet it is one of the...

Paper from Newfoundland. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

Paper from Newfoundland. More activity in the lumber woods of Newfoundland is now noticeable than has ever yet been witnessed in the history of the island. Great quantities of timber are being cut for local requirements, and, in ad dition, an enormous quantity to fill the demands from abroad for colliery purposes. Indeed, it looks now as if a permanent industry in this direc tion would be built up. An indica tion of the new activity in this in dustry is afforded by the fact that every steamer now leaving Newfound kind with cargoes of pulp and paper carries a deckload of timber, and it is understood that all of this is find ing a ready market in the British Isles, and that infinitely larger quan tities could be sold there if the ship ping were available lor transport across the ocean. This, however, iB out of the question at present, and large developments in this direction are not to be looked for until the European struggle is a thing of the past, and the rebuilding of the devas ta...

How Leaves Purify Air. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

How Leaves Purify Air. It has been calculated that a single tree is able through its leaves to purify tho air from the carbonic acid arising from the respiration of a con siderable number of men, perhaps a dozen or even more. The volume of carbonic acid exhaled by a human being in the course of twenty-lour hours is put at about 100 gallons ; but by Boussingault's estimate a siDgle yard of leaf-surface, counting both the upper and under side of the leaves, can, in favourable circum stances, decompose at least a gallon of carbonic acid a day. One hundred square yards of leaf-surface then would quite suffice to keep the air pure for one man, but the leaves of a tree of moderate size present a sur face of many hundred square yards. All forms of vegetable life act simil arly in abstracting the noxious car bonic acid from the atmosphere.

Pioneers in Petticoats. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

Pioneers in Petticoats. There is scarcely a remote corner of the earth into which women have not carried brave hearts, and often frail bodies. They have gone where few men have ventured to go, and have not- only added rich Btores to our knowledge of the wo"ld we live in, but have done splendid pioneer work • for the extention of our Em pire. Miss Mary Kingsley was the first' Briton to enter the terrible gorilla country in the Gameroons, and to explore the land of the FangweB, the most bloodthirsty cannibals on earth, risking a hundred deaths on her jour ney. . . ' ■ Lady Baker was 'the first European • to look on the Albert Nyanza, and j much that we" know of the secrets' of j Central Africa we owe to Tier clever pen.

THEY SAY I Facts are stubborn things, and can not be wished away. "Tommy" is ever the meekest of newly-born husbands. ' Even the devil has enjoyed the ser vices of an advocate. | War is not, and never will be, an eiact science. i | Men of philosophic minds are not, as a rule, very wary as to deceptive I appearances. | The will or capacity to take an , enemy's life is not the only element | in good citizenship. j Success is impossible in any under taking unless one has one's heart and j [ 60Ul in the means whereby success is j ! attained. i As we inherited from our forefath ers a great navy, so we must leave a great air service to our children.

Australian Fire Beetle. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

Australian Fire Beetle. ' ——« • The remarkable power of withstand ing heat possessed by certain lizards, which gave rise to the legend "of the Salamander—a creature said actually to live in fire—is not confined to the reptile family. Professor Thomson has recently^ given particulars of a race of Australian beetles which seem to a large extent, to be fireproof. "It is said," he writes, "that when a bush-fire is .raging certain Bupre Btid beetles are attracted-from a dis tance, perhaps by the scent, and fly straight into the fire, alighting and running about on the hot, steaming branches, and sometimes even over the parts that are glowing red, yet without injury. Mr. H. M. Giles Bpeaks of it as 'one of the most agile species known to me, and as alert and active as an eagle.' It is pro bable that the larvae feed on the half-burnt roots of the shrubs. The remarkable habit is paralled among a number of 'fire-bug' beetles which lay -their eggs in burnt timber, pro bably thus ensuring, as ...

SENSATION AT GUILDFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

"RAISING THE WIND." TAXES WHICH MAKE YOU SMILE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

" RAISING THE WIND.'' « TAXES WHICH MAKE YOU >' SMILE. The Briton's broad back has never lacked its' burden of taxes ever since ■ that enterprising Roman, Julius Cae sar, levied a toll of so many men and wild animals to be sent yearly to Rome, to furnish sport for his legions' and his ladies by killing each other in the arena of the Coliseum ; and it must be said to his credit that, how ever absurd and iniquitous they may have been, he has, as a rule, borne them like a man. Even the Welshman raised no voice, in protest (not that he is a greater grumbler than his English brother) when Edgar the Peaceable, . after bringing the little Principality to itB ' ■ knees, demanded a yearly tribute of three hundred wolves' heads, a toll which was so zealously paid that within four years there was no wolf left in all its forests. And the Eng lishman was equally long-suffering when the Pope, generation after gen eration, depleted his purse by one tax after another, including the fa mous "Pete...
