ANNUAL SCHOOL PICNIC AT NUGGETTY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 10 October 1916
ANNUAL SCHOOIy PICNIC AT NUGGETTY. The annual school picnic at Nuggetty took place on Saturday last, the day being all that could be desired. Quite a large crowd, representative of Maldon and all surrounding districts, attendod, and largely contributed toward the numerical and financial success of the undertaking. All arrangements were well in hand from the outset, and the programme, which included manv events, varied in nature to suit all classes of picnickers, and passed off without a hitch. One of the most intereating events was the " beheading of the Kaiser." Curiously enough, the ladies were more successful thau the men. The wood chop was very attractive and provided a fine contest, while several males and females proved adepts at stepping dis tances. Tae children's events were well and evenly contested and provided no small amount of amusement. The "rooster" race was a novel event to the children, the rooster being sold later lor nineteen shillings. The sheep contest for a lam...

"That's all right, sir," replied the maker of the knots calmly. "The bridge is designed for the Hung to | cross, not our men."

JT WENT HOME. j It was a minstrel performance, and I in the intervals between the songs } the usual jokes were being perpe t trated.

"I done give it up," replied Bor.es. j "Why," exclaimed Sambo, "de old ; maid am'looking for a husband every j day, and de married woman am look- j ing for 'im every night." j There was a pause, and several elderly gentlemen got up and stole softly into the night.

"Just like her father," said Mrs. j Nurich. "He made his money in the > grocery buaiMM." / I

HIS ONE TALENT. As the shabbily-dressed man was lounging along, eagerly scanning the advertisement sheets posted outside the various newspaper offices, a friend met him. "Hallo, Jim he said. "What's, the trouble ? Out of a job ?" "Yes," replied the lounger frankly.. "The guv'nor said he was losing-, money on the things I was making." - "And wasn't there anything else you could do about the place ?" The lounger shook his head.

COMPLETE SHORT STORY. AN OLD MAID'S ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 October 1916
j COMPLETE SHORT STORY. AN OLD MAID'S ROMANCE. The damp fog of dull November made everything miserable. The trees dripped almost as though rain was falling, and the faint light of the street lamps—failing to penetrate the gloom—only intensified the desolation of the reeking world. Within a neatly kept house, 'one of the unending villa stamp so common in the suburbs, an old lady sat gazing into the Are, and thinking. Ah, the pain of memory ! Yet would any one forego the plea sure in order to escape the anguish ? Drip, drip, fell the damp from the oak tree which stood without, in fear ful monotony, as the fog gathered in thicker as night approached. But the old lad'y's thoughts were not hindered "by the depressing state of the out side world ; on the contrary, the-dis mal surroundings seemed to aid her reflections, which were not of the most cheerful nature. At times her eyes filled with tears, and she closed ,her iips resolutely to repress the grief that surged within her bosom. She ...

THE MULE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 October 1916
THE MULE. A ■ President George Fleming of the Royal Veterinary College of London, says that the period of gestation in a mare impregnated by the ass is k little longer than when the father ;s a stallion, the average time being 375 days, also that abortion occurs more readily, and more care is necessary than in breeding horses and asses. In mule breeding more choice can be given to selection of the mother than the father, for almost all asses have in proportion to their we;ght a very large head, short, thick r.eck, fiat sides, low shoulders, narrcr*r chest and croup, small legs and very, narro* hoofs. The selection of mares with a small head, round body, short back, a long neck, and wide, round hoot? i will aid greatly in remedying the de fects of the sire, for although :huLs ; inherit to a great extent the shai>e and peculiarities of the sire they dc .rive their size from the mare, seldom showing her bad shape on unsuitnl n*,e"\ The mule foal is not so strong en its limbs as the ...

COMPLETE SHORT STORY. THE CLUE OF THE CLAW HAMMER. CHAPTER I. THE BURGLAR'S HAMMER. "Come in, Grecnhalge. I'm delight-, ed to see you." Thus spoke the superintendent oi police of Conchester as he grasped the hand of a tall, lank countryman who had just been ushered into his office.

PLOUGHS WITHOUT PLOUGHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 October 1916
PLOUGHS WITHOUT PLOUGHMEN, Before long a farmer will start Ins plough working in the morning, anc will bo busy all day with a hundred and-one duties elsewhere, returning in the evening to find his field neatl} ploughed. An invention to-make this possible has been tested a good deal lately ir America. It is so Bimple that you wonder nobody over thought of it be fore. A tall, stout post is fixed in the middle of the field, and a wire cable stretches from a drum on it to the motor-driven plough. When the farm er starts the engine the plough iE guided by the cable, and has to move in a circular direction. The circle be comes one furrow smaller at each turn as the cable winds on the drums Thus, so long as this engine works, the field is being ploughed, until the .point is reached where the engine iE switched off, having finished its work. Now that labour is getting so very scarce on farms we shall soon see this and many other wonderful auto matic contrivances in use. In Austra j lia a fa...
