What Monarchies Cost. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

What Monarchies Cost.. It 1b hardly possible to compare the expenses of the upkeep of a mon archy and of a republic on general grounds, as so many considerations enter into each individual case. Com paring Great Britain and the United States, the Civil List of the former amounts to about £600,000, but this amonut is more than offset by the revenues of estates which have re verted from the Crown to the State. The salary of the President of the United States is fixed by Congress at £15,000 a year, with a travelling j allowance of £5,000. In addition a large sum has to be provided to pay for his numerous secretaries, the up peep of the White House, cost of en tertaining, etc. Germany, a mon archy, is supposed to Bpend £747,436; a year on her Civil List, while the] Emperor also receives a definite sum as King of Prussia, but there is also j a vast amount of private property, I castles, forests, and estates, out of which the court and royal family are paid. France, a republic, pays to he...

Keeper of the King's Conscience. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

Keeper of the King's -Conscience. The Lord Chancellor is one of the most important men in the Cabinet, in a way, for it is through him that I the King signifies his consent to any thing signed in his name. The Lord Chancellor is, technically, the keeper of the King's conscience. One of the most elaborate and dignified-looking purses in the world belongs to the Chancellor. It is the purse in which is kept the famous "Great Seal." Made' of the very finest purple vel vet, ' it is heavily embroidered in coloured silks with the arms of Eng land, the lion and the unicorn sur mounted by the imperial crown. Below is worked in silk a Latin [ motto meaning "For God and My j Country." The purse used to be I made of scarlet velvet, but was j changed to purple towards the. end of I the ninteenth century. Formerly, too a new one was provided every year, the old one being a perquisite of the Chancellor. Many of these elaborate ly-worked purses, indeed, are now heirlooms in the families of former C...

Sacred Candle Escapes Shells. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

Sacred Candle Escapes Shells. J « One of the few of the historic relics which escaped the bombardment of Arras was a candle reputed to be several hundred years old. The .candle is in the ancient church, Notre Dame des Ardents, which also came unin jured through the bombardment. The relic is known as the Holy Candle. It is guarded in a richly enamelled silver casket, made to the order of Jean de Sasquepee, lord of Baudimont, and owner of Arras, and | a curious history is attached to it. j It appears that in- May, 1105, the ! Holy Virgin appeared during the ! night to two minstrels. ; A terrible plague depopulated Arras I at that time, and the Virgin—so goes! the legend—gave the two minstrels a candle, which they in turn gave to Bishop Lambert, of Arras, and told them that the hot wax of this can dle mixed with pure water would cure the inhabitants of Arras of the dreadful malady. The remedy proved efficacious, and a grateful populace erected the Mon astery of Ardents. The candlc has ...

Fishes' Sense of Smell. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

I Fishes' Sense of Smell. A fiBh hasn't a true noBe, but it j can Bmell. Recent experiments havo j proved tljis. What is more, these ex ' periments have proved that odour ' travels through water, just as it ! does through air. Anglers have laid i so much stress on the need of excit ! ing a fishe's interest by the look of ! food that, the effect of scent has been j overlooked. A shark, will bite at a | hook containing a piece of fat pork, • although the pork does not look like : any kind of fish that swims the sea. i Why, then, should the trout be ex ' pected to be interested only in an '■ artificial "grey hackle ?" i ! It may be heresy in angling to ! suggest that a "fly" should smell I like a fly. These scientific experi | ments show how large a part smell | plays in the food-pursuit of'fish, j Bait such as small crabs was found | and eaten by the fishes two or three | times as rapidly when the shells j were broken.

Appeal from Mr Hughes. MAINTAIN AUSTRALIA'S HONOUR, Vote Against Germany. Fellow Citizens of Australia, j You are facing the greatest crisis that has ever occurred in the history of your country, You must decide whether Aus< tralia is to be dishonoured or will maintain her glorious place among the Allies, You must decide whether the secret agents ot Germany have corrupted this country, or whether Australia intends to perform her fair share in defeating the enemy of humanity and sivilsaticn. You must decide whether your fellow-Australians in the trenches are to be abandoned and your Allies betrayed, or whether we shall send reinforcemnts to spare the men at the front and shorten the war. Every possible falsehood has been invented by those who oppose the national cause: every con ceivable means of iatimidation, often directed by German hands, has been used.

Schools for Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

Schools for Horses. i a. I ▼ The method of educating a horse is rather a lengthy process, and that' followed by the horse instructors of the British Army has answered splen didly. A horse is first taught.to lie down at a given signal. Then he is taught to trot round a field ; then to jump hurdles. He is always reward ed for doing well. Gradually he is accustomed to various pieces of harness, until, when the time comes for him to be mounted by a man, instead of plung ing about and having to be thrashed into submission, he sees at last what the whole thing is about, and tho roughly enters into the spirit of it. Then he is trained to charge at dum my figures, and he is always coaxed and soothed,, if frightened, and soon learns that the dummies do not harm him ; and after that he is taught to knock them over. A course of noises j of gradually increasing violence i teaches him to keep his head, and he' is finally put to charging figures j stufled with fireworks, so that he will not be af...

UNAVOIDABLY DETAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

UNAVOIDABLY DETAINED. A well-known general tells the fol lowing story. One day he received a telegram from a subordinate who was injured in a railway accident while on furlough, which read, "Will not report to-day, as expected, on account of unavoidable circumstances. The tone of the message was not satisfactory to the general, and he wired at once in reply, "Report a? ordered, or give reasons." Within an hour the following mes sage came back over the wires from a hospital, "Train ofl—can't ride; legs of!—carr't walk. Will not report unless you insist." Hicks : "He'll never get on in life —never make a living in fact." Simpson : "Why do you think that, old man 7" "Oh, every time he opens his moutb he puts his foot in it." "Well, that's one way at least of making both ends meet."

There was a thoughtful silence after he had finished speaking.

DRYING THE ZUYDER ZEE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

DRYING THE ZUYDER ZEE. The problem of removing the water from the flooded district of North Holland has not yet been solved. About 40,000 acres are now inundated in that province. The average height to which the water must be lifted is only three feet to four feet, but the total amount to be pumped approxi mates 7,000^00.000 cubic feet. This flood has revived the project of dry ing the Zuyder Zee. The cost is esti mated at £18,000,000, part of which is to cover indemnities to fishermen and for similar purposes. The cost of the dams will probably be lest? than £10,000,000. The principal dam would be about fifteen miles long, averaging 20ft. in height. One of the, most important results accruing fromj the drying of the Zuyder Zee would I be that the new dams would take the | place of the several hundred miles of! dykes that now protect the lowlands from the Zuyder Zee. Birds have an extra eyelid, which can be drawn over the eyeball to protect it from the strong sun, while the propar e...
