CO'H'UES P'ON DENGS K rn?st Appeal for Workers TVi the Editor Sir.-The letter published in your las issue from the president of the Red Cro?a Society, demands the consideration of every woman ia Maiden. It hardly bb cm nossible that, in a town like this, the work for Our soldiers, could be so neglected. It is a matter of the most urgent necessity Ui: t onr' troops shou'.d have every comfort with which wo* can possibly supply them, and it is a shame snd a disgrace to us that tho Wednesday afternoon meetings should he so poorly attended. Is it that the majority of our women are too selfish or too thoughtless to give up two hours a week to work for the men who are giving their livts for us. The matoriais and (ho machines are ready each week, all that is ; needed is workers. Surely thoro are more than three women in Maldon, wi'lini; to give up their time for our men.

Film Kisses. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

Film Kisses. • The extent to which the morals of I inhabitants of certain States in j America are protected by their legis lators has always been regarded with not a little awe by those who live a less sheltered life. la Ohio and Pen nsylvania, for instance, the laws regulating the censorship of the "mo vies" prescribe that a film kiss must not be more than 10ft. long. Each foot, it should perhaps be mentioned, represents a second by the clock. It makes no difference whether it is a mother kissing her son, a brother kissing his sister, or a wife her hus band. If the kiss exceeds 10ft. in length it has to be cut down. For the benefit of actors and act resses in films other than those in tended for the edification of Ohio and Pennsylvania there is apparently a | table of osculatory rules. This is re ■ printed by an American paper as a i guide for devotees of the "movies" I who wish to model their conduct on ithc customs prevailing in filmland, j Cinema kisses vary in length from j "So...

Rich Provinces. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

Rich Provinces. » Quite apart from strong sentimental reasons, French people want to get their lost provinces- of Alsace-Lor raine back because of thei? actual value. In the provinces arc some of the greatest potash mines in the world. These mines alone yield £4,000,000 worth of potash every year. Natural ly, while the Germans have owned them they have made many millions out of them, supplying the world with potash, and with fertilizers from the rock salt which is mixed up with the potash beds. Another fact about Lorraine which will surprise most people is that it has half the world's supply of iron ore, as well as huge untapped coal deposits. For the coal alone France would like Lorraine, for she is short ot coal, and has to import 10,000,000 tons a year. ' { Altogether, the return of Alsace Lorraine will increase France's annual income by some £10,000,000, so there is a business side as well a6 a senti mental one to the recapture of the i lost provinces. The first navy . to use to...

Phenomenal Rainfall. FLOODS IN MANY PEACES. The steady rain which set in at about 11 o'clock last Thursday night, continued almost without abatement up till Sunday evening, and although we have had many phenomenal falls when rain has poured down heavily for a few hours, causing floods and other damage, there was nothing like the fall which has just occurred, It rained continuously up io 2 o'clock on Saturday (39 hours), and" at times it teemed down and at others it became a drizzle and it Is the latter fact which is responsible for the comparative/v smaU'amount of damage, Affer a break of a few j hours it began to rain again on j Saturday night, and continued aii j night throughout Sunday, with an occasional break, Since Thursday 510 points were registered making a total of 630 for September.

| Hatching Eggs in London. | INTERESTING ITEMS ABOUT THE j DAY-OLD OHICK BUSINESS.

This was an outrage that rotild not be allowed to go unrebuked, even in. the midst of a tragedy. Pausing in hiB speech, and advanc ing to the oil lamps, Theophilus ad-, dressed his audience : "Ladies and gentlemen," he hissed, "five years ago I lost a monkey, and it has turned up here to-night in the gai" lery."

NOT SO GREEN. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 September 1916

NOT SO GREEN. I He met her one night at a recep tion, and asked her to go to the theatre with him. She accepted, and as they liked each other they went again later. Then it got to be a weekly occurrence. Finally he got to thinking be was solid enough with her to go out between. the acts, and so he did. For several weeks he worked this, and met with no rebuff. But she was thinking a lot, em though she wasn't saying anything. One evening she said : "Why don't you go to the smoking-room to smoke instead of going to the lob' by ?" "Is there a smoking-room inside?" he asked. "Of course. You always say that you are. going out to smoke, and it seems so useless to have to take your hat and coat evqry time. And if you thought of it beforehand you could buy those cigarettes that you seem to like—the ones that smell like cloves, you know—before you come." He is wondering if she is as inno cent as it appears.

A LIVING TORPEDO. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 September 1916

A LIVING TORPEDO. I ! It is- perhaps interesting to fcno* : that there is a fish which bears this name. j This is the torpedo, or electric ray. 1 a dweller in Southern seas, whic'n ' grows to a large size, sonietimfs j weighing seventy or eighty pound'. I This peculiar fish has a nearly circu lar body, a short tall, and a w; | small mouth. | The back is brownish in colour, and ! the underneath parts are white. I The torpedo obtains its name from its power of giving a violent shock, similar to an electric shock, to any thing with which it comes in contact. Whenever an enemy approaches, the fish emits from its body a kind electricity, which incapacitates tbf attacker immediately. In capturing its food the torpedo finds this power of use. Being Terx inactive, it cannot pursue the small fish which forms its diet, so it l,es in wait Until they swim close fc?. and then throws out its power'"! shock, which instantly renders them helpless.

The other members „of the board kept a con strained silence, and the second vice president, in charge of extension, gazed longingly at a plebeian sign of "Beer" across the street and seven storeys below.

MOTTLES IN BUTTER MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 September 1916

MOTTLES IN BUTTER MAKING. — T Chemical analysis show that in cream as ordinarily ripenejj,, that is, when the lactic acid exceeds one-half of 1 per cent., the casein is all in the form of casein lactate. This com pound is the substance most familiar to us in the form of curdled sour milk. The'form of casein first pro duced from milk casin in the process of souring, base-free casein (or sim ply caBein), is soluble in a vre&k solu tion of salt ; but casein lactate is in soluble in such a solution. The salt acts upon casein - lactate, however, when in a strong solution ; and in a few hours hardens and localises it, bo that in the case of butter milk the white, more or less firm proteid sepa rates from the liquid, leaving two quite distinct portions. "In making butter, unless care is used, more or leas butter milk will be left in the butter, and the butter milk contains casein lactate. When the salt is added to such butter it forms with the small amount of water a strong brine t...
