The World's Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 October 1916

The World's (feid. ~ Taking the present position of tha world at large, there ia no doubt whatever as to the fact of paper money inflation. y Between July, 1914, and the begin ning of 1916, Germany's paper cur rency "incrcaaed £300,000,000, or some thing like 320 per cent. France added £303,800,000 to its note circulation within that period, or .113 per cent. In Russia the Imperial Bank's note issues alone rose £392,600,000, or 217 per cent., and there was probably other currency put out. I Austria has not ventured to pub lish sthe figures of her war-time paper money issues, but they are certainly very large. The Bank of England's note circu lation at the end of 1915, together with the special currency—authorised when the war began, put out by the Treasury for account of the English joint-stock banks, and secured by Government bonds and commercial paper—8hov7ed a total increase of £138,400,000, an expansion of 367 per cent. The national banks of the United States, under a law passed...

Getting1 Used to it. HOW SOME MARTYRS TO NER VOUSNESS HAVB CURED THEM SELVES. Very many persons who have all the skill necessary for great suc cesses at games, and in some cases professions, are prevented from do ing themselves justice by an uncon trollable nervousness which comes over them when their talents are put to. an important trial. In a Lancashire town there lives a man who is acknowledged to be the best amateur billiardplayer in the district. For a long time this man could never do himself justice in an important match, even in small club sweepstakes, or when playing for a humble half-crown. A wealthy man, he determined to get ovei' this affliction. He entered a crowded saloon in the town, and walked up to the marker,'saying in i a loud tone : "I'll play you a hundred up. for five pounds to sixpence." The marker took him on, and the amateur received a terrible licking, as he was so nervous that he was | unable to score except by a fluke, the next night, in spite of rude re...

PRESBYTERIAN SPRING FAIR. • The members of the 'Ladies' Guild in connection with the above church have for some months past been preparing for this Fair and sale of work, and the result of their efforts bore fruit on Saturday last, when the e"ent took place in the Teitper ance Hall, which had been most artistically decorated for the occasion* and the various stalls presented a very pretty appear ance, reflscting the utmost credit on those responsible for such creditable displays. The atten dances both afternoon and even ing were very fair, and a profit of from £20 to £25 is expected to be realised, which will go towards effecting much- needed repairs at the local manse but the amount raised, unfortunately, will not bo sufficient to do all that is re quired. At about half- past three in the afternoon, the Hon, H. and Mrs Lawson arrived, and in formally introducing their representative the Rev, J; S« Thompson, who presided in an able manner throughout, said they had been looking forwa...

Wolves Originated German War Songs. REASON FOR BRITISH SOLDIERS' RHYMES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 October 1916

Wolves Originated German j War Songs. REASON FOR BRITISH SOLDIERS' RHYMES. To the German the war song is a j serious matter ; it is for the; most j part a grave composition, exalted in! feeling, and thrilling- with the love! of country ; he is taught to sing it, ! and he sings it well, with obvious ■ and touching sincerity and with: equally obvious advantage to his j morale. I The attempt to introduce similar | songs and a similar attitude towards j them to the use of the English ■ sol-' dier has often been made, and exact ly as often lamentably failed. On the whole it has "been, perhaps, the most purely comic effort of the im pulse to mimic Germany which has been in favour until of late with cer tain people of excellent aims but in adequate biological knowledge. The English soldier, consistently prefer ing the voice of Nature to that of the most eminent doctrinaire, has, to the scandal of his lyrical enemies, steadily drawn his inspiration from the music-hall and the gutter, or fro...
