THE DEVIL'S BIBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 June 1916

THE DEVIL'S BIBLE. . The Devil's Bibie; is in the Royal Palace Library of Stockholm Sweden. It is a huge copy of the scriptures, written upon 300 prepared asses' skins. One . tradition declares that it took 500 years, or from the eighth to the thirteenth century, to make the copy, which is so large that it j has a table to itself. Another tra dition affirms that the work was done in a single night by a monk, with the assistance of his Satanic Majesty, who, when- the work was completed, gave the monk a picture of himself for the frontispiece, where, amid illustrated incantations, it is still to be seen ; hence the name, This marvellous manuscript was car ried off by the Swedes during the Thirty Years' War from a convent in Prague.

HIGH EXPLOSIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 June 1916

HIGH EXPLOSIVES. Professor Smithells;!.of-Leeds Uni versity, in a lecture on "High Ex plosives," said: that one ■ peculiarity of them, is that you 'can do anything you like- to them, oven kick> them I with ■ impunity, and they are quite safe until they, receive the right vibratory shocks A' high explosive produces from 15,000 to 20,000 times its own volume of gas, and the velo city is at the rate of about seven: miles a second, a speed at which one, can travel from Leeds to London in about -twenty-seven seconds. If a man turning a street" corner, meets a gale of- wind blowing at eighty, miles an hour, it will nearly upset him ; yet it only .travels about forty yards a sccond instead of seven miles. Thus 150 gales of wind would have to meet with cumulative effect before the velocity of a high explo sive "will-have to be oncountered.

£340 A YEAR FOR TRIMMING < ' QUILLS. V ^ For ■,»ordinary persons the!" great drawback to quill-pens, is the con stant mending tliey require. Alexan der::!. of Russia thought it-necessary to employ a man • whose sole duty consisted in cutting' pens. He waB expected to have a supply of not less' than 100 quills always" ready. This number was by no means excessive, for Alexander would never . use. the same pen twice. Even the writing of a-signature spoiled a pen, in his opin ion, for subsequent use.

SUNFLOWERS AS LIFE-SAVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 June 1916

SUNFLOWERS AS LIFE-SAVERS. The-sunflower iB cultivated to a considerable extent in Central Rus sia, where every part of the plant is pat to certain economic uses. The. discovery of the extreme lightness of the pith of the stalk has essentially increased the commercial value of the plant. This light cellular substancei is now carefully removed from the stalk and applied to a good many important uses. One of its chief uses is the making of life-saving applian ces. Cork with a buoyancy of one to five, and reindeer's hair with one to ten, has been used ;'the pith of the sunflower has a ' buoyancy of one to thirty-five. The latter can be used advantageously in the construction of boats and life-preservers. A sufficient quantify can be worn on a person without any inconvenience. The pith of the larger sunflower stalks is used extensively aB a substitute for other materials formerly employed in mak ing'.'raoxas for cauterizing purposes.

The great over-eating which has been so noticeable a feature of Ger man life during the last twenty-five years has been as marked among wo men as among men. The average Ger man woman begins with coffee and milk between seven and eight in the morning, than about ten there is a meat breakfast, and at one o'clock a really heavy meal, as a rule about twice as extensive as\an English lunch, with beer or wine, or both.

YOU MUST PAY I » : NATURE IS A STERN CREDITOR, AND -WILL'INSIST ON A SETTLE MENT. • A man has just died, age fifty-two. Nature— his body—sent a long over due account, and he couldn't meet it. He had burnt the candle of life at both ends. The ends met. The flame of life puffed out ;~he died. Another man, if he lives for twenty years, is condemned to eat slops, or die painfully. No lining to his sto mach. He, is ■_paying.. the bolt-your food account. A third man, thirty-four, is walk ing about- miserable. He's one of the "rejected,, medically unlit."

IF BATTLESHIPS RAN ON LAND. • Rear-Admiral Fiske, of the U.S. ; Navv, lias read a daring paper in which is presented a dramatically in teresting comparison of the manoeuv ring ability of a battleship and the j 0: mobility of a great army. (Enormous is the power that has come into the hands of the naval nations; but it has -.come bo newly that we do not appreciate it yet. One reason why we do not and can-v not- appreciate it correctly is that no units have been established by which to measure it. . To supply this deficiency Rear-Ad miral Fiske points out that, since the military power of every nation has until recently been' its army, of which the unit has been the soldier, ' whose power has rested wholly in his musket, the musket has actually beon the unit of military power. In all history, the statement of the number of men in each army has been put forward by historians as giving the most accurate idea of their fighting value ; 'and in modern times nearly all of- these men have be...
