HEMP SEED AS A PREVENTIVE OF ABORTION. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 20 October 1916

HEMP SEED AS A PREVENTIVE OF ABORTION. A correspondent of tho "Jersey • ; Bulletin" writes to that paper as fol- ! Iowb • i "I would like to offer a valuable' ' suggestion to your readers as a pre- | vention of abortion. It may ,be. new j 'to'niany of them, as it^ wasrto' nfe. j i It is hemp seed—a simple and almost . ' costless remedy. Give a tablespoonful . ;once a day in bran or other feed. j "If animal has aborted and is again bred, commence giving it a week or ; two before the time in gestation when i abortion formerly occurred. If evi- • dence of .abortion appear, commence; at once with the seed, or if it has j gone too far, make a strong tea and • drcnch the animal. I had a mare that ■ had twice aborted, and concludcd to . not breed her again, as she was 22 J years, old, when an old horseman told j , me of the hemp seed remedy. j j "With it I carried her over the two j I periods she had aborted — five and j j seven months—and continued its use until Bhe foaled, though its con...

PEDIGREE IN DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 20 October 1916

PEDIGREE IN DAIRY CATTLE. T In purchasing a cow or heifer her pedigree should be examiaed, because there are as many, poor pedigree dairy animals as good ones. Farmers are too prone to- believe that all pedigree stock is necessarily good, "but this does not necessarily follow. Eligibi lity to registration in most cases is not based upon production or indivi dual excellence, but upon purity of breeding. The fact that purity of breeding in so many cases is the solo requisite for registration has made it possible for many animals to enter the dairy herd register which, by na ture are more of a meat breed. In the purchase of pure-bred stock, therefore no judicious selection can be made from a mere list of names of indivi duals, unless we know of the produc tion and individual excellence of the animals represented in the pedigree. When purchasing a pure-bred cow or heifer, we should know the record of her dam, as well as that of her sire's dam, and if these are right as to milk and butte...

A FINNY BLOCKADE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 20 October 1916

A FINNY BLOCKADE. -4 Although the sea may seem spac'i ous enough to hold altuoit any num ber of fish, this is by no means the case. •The roe of & fair-sized cod eontaini some 7 million eggs, but in th* or dinary course of events only a very small proportion of these are ever hatched, for the roe is considered a great delicacy by hundreds of fish, and even the father cod himself has been known to devour it. If all these eggs were hatched, how ever, and the cod from them, reach ing maturity, bred once, th» fis>i would fill the English Channel. A'l our warships which might hnppen to be there at the time would he as help less as though surrounded by While, if it went on much longer, the Kaiser might march his army overs roadway of cod to Britain. Sparrows also multiply with rapidity, as instanced in the rfa: States.

MOURNING "COLOURS." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 20 October 1916

MOURNING " COLOURS." —i It is one of those strange and in explicable contradictions in the world ,that the Chriitian nations "have adopted black as their mourning col our. It is empty of any symbolism that suggests comfort, or hope, or a be lief in a resurrection and another life, and is therefore absolutely non Christian. "Heathen" China uses white, suggestive of hope, and not gloom. In some parts of England child-mourners at a little one's fune ral wear white—the last survival of a beautiful custom. In Persia, pale brown, symbolising the fallen and withered leaveB of a life, is the col our of mourning. In Bokhara deep blue is worn. In Abyssinia and Ethi opia greyish brown iB the colour, sug gestive of the return to "earth." In Egypt and Burmah yellow is the mourning colour, symobiising the "sere and yellow.' leaf and its decay. Royal mourning is purple, and that also is the mourning colour in Tur key. The only unsuitable colour, from every point of view, is black.

TOMMIE'S CASH VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 20 October 1916

TOMMIE'S CASH VALUE. — What is a soldier's cash v&lua to the State ? It depends, of course on the man, and whether he is an orna ment to the Service or a "King'j had bargain" ; hut a rough estimats is to be found in the conditions under which a soldier may buy himself ou1 of the Army. At any. time- within three months of "taking the shilling" a recruit who has enliBted in haste and re pented as quickly, has the. right to purchase his discharge on payment 0f £10 down. After this period dis charge by purchase is a favour, not 9 right. For a soldier with less than twehe years' colour service the usual sum payable is £18, but it may be more or lesB,' according to his branch of the Service and his nationality. Thus a member of the armaineni artificer section of the Army Ord nance Corps who is in receipt of "Service pay" must forfeit £35 if he wishes to break his contract with the State. On the other haitd, a non European soldier may be let of! witb a £12 fine. If a soldier can sh...

"Without divulging any of its arc ana mysteries, I may go bo far as to say that it is very different in its. general economy . from the wireless room of a dozen years ago. At that period the whole of the apparatus was contained in a couple of small boxes which stood on the desk in an otherwise empty office ; the messages were automatically printed in Morse code on a tape machine which always worked ...

But the dog was right, and pre sently conducted his master to the cabin, and then, in spite of the kick, set out to find the other man. He found him utterly lost and at his last gasp almost, and led him back. So grateful was he that he presented the dog, after he had struck it rich, with a gold-studded collar, and open ed a banking account in his name, which will only be disturbed to give him a fitting funeral. By the will of a Russian princess who died recently, £4,000 was left to her toy-ter...
