"I'll send James over on » strctchcr in an hour or two."

Cupid's Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916

I Cupid's Correspondence, i ^ "Nuts" write many love-letters, but these nuts are of the human kind, and are spelt usually "knut." But, at least on one accasion a Bra zil nut has become the means of amatory correspondence. One of these real nuts was used by a young planter in South America, much as a Christmas cracker is used by Tom Smith for the concealment of a "motto" or "sentiment," to- be read out at dinner. He pierced a hole in the shell, roll ed up a loveletter into a fine tube, pushed it in, scaled it up, and sent it off with the rest of the bag. The chances against it seemed a million to one at least; but that mil lionth chance proved a winner, Cupid, often perverse, guided that nut aright for once ; it actually appeared at a Christmas merrymaking, was cracked by a charming young lady with matrimonial inclinations—so un like her sisters !—and that young and innocent damsel actually became the wife of the gallant planter ! After being kept in cold storage for quite a long tim...

Laconic Letters. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916

Laconic Letters. ♦ If "Brevity is the soul of wit," Bishop Stubbs of Oxford must have written some of the wittiest letters extant. On one accasion a viear wrote to him asking permission to place some curtains behind the Holy Table in his church. The Bishop re plied, stating his views on the sub ject. The vicar, however, thought this was not sufficient, and wrote an other lengthy epistle, giving fuller details of his intentions, in reply to which the bishop wrote : ""Dear ,—Hang your curtains.— Yours truly."' Another laconic letter from the pen of Bishpp Stubbs, and referred to in his Life, was in reply to a clergyman who asked leave to visit the Holy Land, and said ; "My dear Go to Jericho.— Yours truly." Which reminds one of the story of the man who was bitterly insulted be cause, in reply to a business proposi tion, another man had told him to go to a certain place where the cli mate is warm. He wrote an angry reply letter demanding an apology, and received the mild reply : "Dear ...

Famous Modern Sieges. ONE THAT LASTED NEARLY FOUR YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916

Famous Modern Sieges. ? ONE THAT LASTED NEARLY FOUR YEARS. General Townshend's gallant de fence of Kut for 143 days against overwhelming odds will go down to history as one of the most magnifi cent episodes of the Great War. In the war between Russia and Japan, Port Arthur only gave in after a siege of 210 days. By far the longest of modern times was the last siege of Gibraltar. It commenced on June 21st, 1779, and ended in February, 1783. It thus lasted for the long period of three yearB and eight months, or more i than 1,300 days. | The besieged were the British gar rison, under the command of General G. A. Elliott, a most abstemious and methodical man, who never slept more than four hours at a time. The besiegers were a joint French and Spanish force, 30,000 strong, who at } tacked from land and sea. The siege j utterly failed, and Britain still clingB j. to the Rock which held out so vali antly and for such an unparalleled length of time. Perhaps the most desperate siege was tha...

CINEMA CITY. * ' \ - ' ♦ Bight miles north-west of Lob An geles, which has beconw colloquially known as "Flickeropoli#," from its intimate .association with the cinema industry, is the verdant San-Fernan do Valley, wherein has sprung up an amazing community. It has achieved a world-wide renown. Officially it is styled Universal City, but it. is more familiarly known as the "Craziest City in the World." "Universal City," says Mr. F. A. Talbot in the "World's Work," "is & centre the whole population of which labours soiely for the cinematograph. It was called into being merely to satisfy the huge crowds which daily flock the picture palaces scattered be tween the two Poles, and which, like Oliver Twist, are ever asking for more !

Queer Marriages. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916

Queer Marriages. ? Not long ago a French piou-piou was wodded to the lady of hie choice on the battlefield. Thtf affair caused something of a sensation ; but many marriages have been solemnised in equally queer places in the past. * ^The idea of being wedded among lions would not appeal to most brides and bridegrooms, but not long ago the proprietor of a wild-beast show in New York offered a prize of a hundred guineas to any young couple who consented.to be wedded in a lion's cage. The offer was accepted by a plucky young girl and her lover, and the ceremony passed off without any mishap, although the lions were much excited at the unwonted intru sion of strangers into their den, and emitted fearful roars during the ter rible ordeal. I A-few years ago, Professor Ernest J G. Braileford, the aeronaut, suggest-1 ed to his future wife that they! should have their nuptials tied in a | balloon. The bride proving agreeable,1 a balloon was prepared, and they were married in a car while thei...

Building a Battleship. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916

Building a Battleship. Do you know how many hours' Wjprk it takes to build a modern Dreadnought ? Probably you hare never given the matter a thought, so it will interest you to learn that a , big battleship entailB about 7,200,000 I man-hours, or labour equivalent to the work of one man working that time. The making of the turbine machine ry absorbs some 1,850,000 man-hours, and the mountings of the big guns [ can easily acquire two years' work, j while a single armour-plate .may take | nearly three months 'to finish. None j of these processes can be unduly hur ried, as the very best work must be put in, the least scamping making all the difference between victory and defeat. Between forty and fifty per cent, of the cost of a Dreadnought's hull goes into labour. Curiously enough, far less is spent on labour when construc-_ ting a turbine engine than when mak ing one of the old reciprocating cyl inder type. Much'of the.material is made by machinery, leaving only 28 per cent, of the c...

His Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 3 October 1916

His Mistake. One bright sunny morning a small boy was busily spinning his top out side a suburban house. Along the road came a book-can vasser. "Your mother in ?" he asked the small boy, as he opened the garden gate. "Yes, sir !" said the small boy, spinning his top again. The canvasser knocked and knocked, again at the door of the house, but could get no reply. Coming out of the gate, be said again to the small boy : "I thought you said your mother was in ?" "So she is, sir." "But I've knocked several'times, and can't get any reply." "Perhaps not," Baid the boy, wind ing the string carefully round his. top. "I didn't say she lived there." "Pa," said little Jimmie, "I was very near getting to the head of my class to-da^y." "How was that, Jimmie?" "Why, a big word came all the way down to me, and if I coul.d only have j spelt it I should have gone clean up ( to the top."
