THE SCOUT. AN UNCENSORED ACCOUNT OF A BATTLE ROYAL IN ANT-LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 October 1916

THE SCOUT. AN UNCENSORED ACCOUNT OF j A BATTLE ROYAL IN ANT-LAND. J The little people of the grass werej very busy tbat morning under the j glorious sunshine, round their forti-1 fied town. Little it might seem to j us, but it probably contained as many -lives—not souls hardly—hs many a big human city does. It be longed to the ants of the iield, the tiny people who were always busy. Sccrecy they craved, but it has its drawbacks. For instance, one ant, prospecting along a little-used side track alone', suddenly halted,-as ono who discovers a "footprint upon a desert island. She had not, of course ; she had merely crossed a trail, but to her it was the same thing. That trail—and she could fol low it as sure as any hound—spelt trouble. Carefully and cautiously she fol lowed it into the grass. She must have had the pluck of several bull-, dogs, for she knew who owned the trail, and it was like a man follow ing a tiger into thick jungle. The track led back towards the ant city. Then it s...

The First "Commercial." AMUSING SPEECH BY ME. FRED COYSH. Mr. Fred Coysb, Secretary of tho I United Kingdom "Commercial Travel-1 lers* Association, at a meeting of the Sales Managers' Association, made the following remarks : "There is a certain amount of dispute as to .who was the first commercial traveller. Certain authorities say it was Jo seph's brethren, who went down into Egypt and sold him into captivity. For myself, I rather incline to the belief that the first commercial trav eller of whom we have any authentic record was the good Samaritan, and that his characteristics have endured right through commercial travellers to this day, "It you ask me how I would prove that the good Samaritan was a com mercial traveller, I will offer you three points. First, it is impossible j to suggest that in a remote place ! like the road between Jericho, and: Jerusalem any casual passer-by would bo going along loaded with corn and oil. Obviously they were samples, j He was in that trade, and...

The Sweetest Tooth. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 October 1916

The Sweetest Tooth. I Britons have th« sweetest tooth, and Americana come next, if the statistics for consumption of sugar I mean anything. An Englishman eats annually 92.41b., an American con sumes 79.31b. In Denmark the aver age consumption is 72.61b. per head: in Switzerland it is 55!b. ; in Ger many, Holland, Sweden, and Nor way, it is from . 391b. to 441b. ; in France, 351b. ; in Belgium, 331b. ; in Austria, 24.21b. ; in Russia, 19.81b. ; in Portugal, 15.41b. ; in Spain and Turkey, 111b. in Italy, Bulgaria, Roumania, and Serbia, from, 6lb. to 71b. The principal reason for these; variations is found in the relative j highness or lowness of the Customs ( duties on sugar and on the things, with which it is commonly associat I ed—coffee, tea, etc.

VERY SUGGESTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 October 1916

VERY SUGGESTIVE. A good story is told of a minister | who had for some time been dis pleased with the quality of milk! served him. At length he determined! to remonstrate with his milkman for supplying such weak stuff. He began mildly "I've been wanting to see you in regard to the quality of milk with which you are serving me." "Yes, sir," uneasily answered the tradesman. "I .only wanted to »ay," continued the minister, "that I use the milk for dietary purposes exclusively, and not for christening."

Old Age Pills. • ♦ Sir Thomas Boor Crosby, who bo-1 came Lord Mayor of London when he i was over eighty-one, held some' in teresting views on the art of keeping ' young—maxims founded on his ex periences as a doctor. "Take care of your arteries," was one of Sir Thomas' oft repeated !'old age pills." "A man is as old as his arteries," he once said. "If they de i generate, you-.get an effusion of blood on the brain and elsewhere and crack. "To take care of your arteries go j to bed early. One thing I do insist upon, and that is 'early to bed." Whenever possible I always get a long ; .night's rest. I eat as little meat as j possible.

Famous Conferences, WHERE HISTORIC TREATIES WERE SIGNED. The French capital has been the scene of a number of historic inter ! national meetings.

Heartless Kaiser. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 October 1916

Heartless Kaiser. Those who remember the Kaiser's conduct when his grandfather died in March? 1838, are scarcely- surprised at his hatred of England and his beartlessness to-day. Every sort of mental annoyance was inflicted upon his father, the luckless Emperor Fred erick, who only reigned ninety-nine days, and everyone was in terror when William came to see his father, lest he should suggest that he became Regent. It was when Frederick died in June of 1888, however," that Prince William showed hie true character. As Boon as the- Emperor had drawn his last breath, he doubled the guard round the New Palace at Potsdam, where the dead .man - lay, and allowed ho one to; leave, or" enter. Ho then de clared that all tho property of those within, his mother, sisters, and at tendants, was confiscated for a- time, and personally "went through" their bedrooms, boudoirs, cupboards,"desks, strong-boxes, jewel-boxed, and every other receptacle. ' The reason for this search of his mother's home w...

Why the Young Go Astray. GREAT HERITAGE OF THE WANDERLUST. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 October 1916

Why the Young Go Astray. GREAT HERITAGE OF THE WANDERLUST. Many mothers are frequently much worried over the tendencies of their boys to wander away from home. Sometimes these hoys get to towns or cities far from honrc. Frequently tbey ship on boats for foreign lands. Others disappear for a while, return, and in the spring again disappear for months. Once in a while a hoy will disappear for ever. This nomadic or wandering impulse is natural to all healthy hoys and youths bc-twecn twelve and eighteen years of age. It is an hereditary in stinct, and cannot be successful y eradicated. It is generally kept un der reasonable control by our edu cational methods, and, adds Dr. W. Lee Howard in the course of the very interesting paper we publish, some times unjust legal means—unjust, be cause the boys are punished for acts whose motives come down to them from ancestral stock that was no madic or wandering. All animals, in cluding men, have this impulse. We human beings spring from the etock...

A SHORT STORY. THE THREE TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 20 October 1916

A SHORT STORY. THE THREE TESTS, I ~—1 [ The Marquis of L. and a friend, Captain X., had spent the afternoon playing at their club, at the request of young B., who had. a passion for' gambling. On this occasion, however, B. was not in luck, and the marquis ■won about fifteen pounds from him, a big sum of money for young B., who waB by no means rich, and, in deed, had considerable difficulty in making both ends meet, his occupa tion being rather irregular. He was consequently rather depressed in spirits, thinking doubtless of the pri vations which he would have to im pose upon himself. The marquis, on the contrary, had an immense for tune, and had played simply for the sake of amusement ; the fifteen pounds was nothing to him, and would be lost among his treasures like a drop of water in a river. On quitting the playing-table, the captain said- to him : "Don't you see how unhappy the young man is ? You are rich, and have no need of the money. You would be doing the fellow a good turn ...

' COMPLETE SHORT STORY. MARION'S MISTAKE. i • It was a 6trange wooing, that of : Nelson Ellis. Perhaps its very strangeness won Marion Reynolds in to assent. She had been so accus tomed to see men at her feet, to have them smile at her bidding and obey her slightest whim, that there was a simgular fascination in know ing her momentary caprices had no ■ power to sway the current of one man's will, that what he thought right he held to, even should it sub ject him to her displeasure. His wooing had not been very de monstrative. In a few 1 straightfor , : • ward words he told her of his love, and asked her to be his wife ; but when Bhe had as quietly answered him, in silent'wonderment at her own submission, he drew her to him and pressed a single kiss upon her fore head, and for one moment, as she lay in his arms, a look came into his face as of a man who had won a grand race, whose triumph all the world must exult in. • | Women smiled when the engage ment was announced.
