Curing a Cold. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 10 October 1916

Curing a Cold. ♦ By ASHLEY STERNE. 'Snawful cold I had. I think I must have caught it one day in the City. I entered a Mecca and sat too near some men playing draughts ; or the coffee I drank may have been damp—I can't Bay. Anyway, 'snawful cold I had, and though I tried to 1 give it to several people I didn't love, I couldn't get rid of it. When 1 went out of doors Btrong men i rushed away and hid. Nursemaids heroically carried toothless children to places of safety. Policemen divert ed the traffic up side Btreots. Dogs | fled panic-stricken. Even my nose ran. Then I met Gerkin. He said, "Why dot try sub abbodiated quideed for your code ? It's cured bide." So of! I went to the drugster's and bought some, took it home, and had it with my lunch.' As a beverage, 1 decided I preferred Condy and soda ; as a liqueur, cod-liver oil. It wasn't success. The truth is I did not take it in time. The whole secret of the successful, ammoniated quinine drink er is to take it at the critical mo me...

Nominating Cardinals. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 10 October 1916

Nominating Cardinals. The ceremony . of nominating Car dinals, which takes place at Rome, ; is not without! its picturesque side. The Consistory of the Sacred College meets in secret—though particulars of the proceedings are afterwards given to the Press—and, following upon a brief address, the Pope names the persons he wishes to elevate to the purple. His nomination is final, but in accordance with the old cus tom when the Cardinals voted for the election of their comrades, he asks, "What is your desire ?" The Car dinals then silently lay down their red silk caps, rise, and bow. It is the formal assent, and the new Cardinals are declared elected. England has Cardinals other than those created by N the Pope. At one time there were officials of that title attached to a number of her cathed rals, whose duty it was to visit the sick and relieve the needy, but St. Paul's is now alone in the possession I of a Senior and a Junior Cardinal, ; elected by the Deans from among the l Minor Can...

It is said that the Old Lady of Shoe Lane, as the now defunct 'Stan dard' wa6 nicknamed, was the first English newspaper to print''a serial story, although torday the papers which do not are to be. counted on the fingers of one .hand.

Why is the Sky Blue? THE WONDERS OF LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 10 October 1916

* Why is the Sky Blue ? THE WONDERS OF LIGHT. Sunlight, which we call white, is composed of light rays of different colours—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. It can be broken up into its constituent col ours in various ways. If it passes through a transparent prism (like the crystals that hang from a chandelier) or if it falls on a. surface which has almost invis'ibly minute irregulari ties (like mother-of-pearl or the wing of a butterfly) we see the rays into which sunlight has been separat ed. These phenomena are observed when light is not absorbed. Hold a piece of red glaBs in front of a flame and we see only red. Rays of all other colours have been ab sorbed. Tho natural colours of the objects we see about us, leaves, flowers, books, and chairs, depend upon absorption. A green leaf sends back chiefly green rays ; the rest are | absorbed. So the natural colour of1 everything in nature is the unabsorb- j ed residue from full white light, there is no such thing a...

Patching up Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 10 October 1916

Patching up Soldiers. ■ In one of_ the limb-shops of the Queen Mary Etospital at. Roehamp ton, London, where artificial limbs for ■wounded* heroes are made, dis abled soldiers find their feet with, the aid of parallel bars. In order that the legs may suit them,as nearly per fectly as possible, it is usual for .the men to take their first steps in tho practising-room before the limbs are finished. Less than five months ago Sergeant Kent, of the oth Wilts, lost his legs in his country's service at the Dar danelles. Recently, consciously proud of his facility, he took an afternoon stroll round the grounds of the hos pital with only two walking-sticks to help him. For six dayB he had been relearning how to walk—a joyous ex perience for a man who had contem plated a life with crutches. A .one-armed man strode, along'a corridor swinging the one arm—his left—as lie walked. His hand was[ gloved, and the fingers gripped, but j they were unnaturally hard. The i lower part of the one arm was a...

Another sergeant, an Irishman, was, drilling his raw recruits. Disgusted at their erratic idea of marching in a straight line, he yelled : "Halt!
