Riddles That Have Never Been Solved. CAN YOU SOLVE THEM? [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

Riddles That Have Never Been Solved. CAN YOU SOLVB THBM ? For many people riddles have an unfailing fascination, and the more elusive and tantalising they are tne more fascinating they are. But there are a few which even the cleverest and most pertinacious brains have never solved, and which seem likely to keep their secret inviolate for The celebrated Archbishop Whately was responsible for scores of c ever conundrums, many of which are as popular to-day as when our great grandfathers were young. A riddle attributed by some to the ingenious Archbishop, and which, it is said, has baffled all the ingenuity of four generations of puzzle-solvers, is the following I sit on a rock when I'm raising the . wind, But the storm once abated, I'm gen tle and kind ; I .see kings at my feet who await but my nod To kneel in the dust where my foot steps have trod ; Tho' seen by the world, I'm known but to few, The gentile detests me, I'm pork to the Jew. I never have paBBed but one night in the dark...

NOTHING SERIOUS. CROSS-EXAMINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

NOTHING SERIOUS. ^ CROSS-EXAMINATIONS. A company of very new soldier were out on a wide heath, practising the art of taking cover. The officer in charge of them turned to one of the rawest of his men. "Get down behind that hillock there," he ordered, sternly, "and, mind, not a move or a sound ?" A few minuteB later he looked around to see if they were all con cealed, and, to his despair, observed something , wriggling behind the Bm&U mound. Even as he watched th« movements became more frantic. "I say, you there !" he shoutea, angrily, "do you know you are giv ing our position away to the ene my ?" "Yes, Bir," said the recruit, in a voice of cool desperation, "and do you know that this is an ant-hill?"

Some Modern Misers. SWISS WIDOW SAVES £800" PENNY BY PENNY. A man named Thomas Case died | at Whitechapel Infirmary after being | discovered in a state of the most; wretched destitution and neglect. Yet | he possessed easily-negotiable sccuri- j ties to the amount of £15,000. i A few days after this man died an other case of a similar kind was brought into the same institution, only thiB old man had becomc aj raving lunatic. For some time he had lived in a wretched garret, and the neighbours—for the poor are the best friends of the poor—often gave him coppcrs and food. His room was searched and a lea ther bag found containing ten bank books revealing a credit of thousands of pounds. In one bank alone his de posits were over a thousand, and in addition to all this a bag of gold was ..found in his room and a batch of valuable securities tied up in a bundle. Some time ago an old woman was knocked down on the road near Bal lymena, Ireland, by a dray and killed j instantly. Her house or ...

Dodging the Shells. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

Dodging the Shells. Although, under the altered condi tions of modern warfare both officers and men take all the cover they can get, it is Btill considered "bad form" to duck when bullets are whistling or shells screaming overhead. This is a survival from the old Crimean days, when men were actually pun iehed for behaving in a manner that was then considered to be unworthy of a British soldier. It is on record, too, that Napoleon strongly objected to it, and on one occasion he even went the length, of publicly reprimanding one. of Tiis staff officers for stooping on his horse's neck in order to avoid the balls he heard whistling over his head! "You will not," he told him, "shun the danger any better by bend ing down than by keeping upright." General Gordon, no mean authority was of a different opinion, though. Writing in his journal, he says : 'For my part I do not consider judicious ducking to be a fault, for I remem ber on two occasions swing shells be fore my eyes which certainly...

HUMOURS OF THE AIR. AMUSING ADVENTURES OF FLYING MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 October 1916

HUMOURS OF THE AIR. I AMUSING ADVENTURES OF FLY ING MEN. The airman has perhaps more than his share of adventure and excite ment in war-time, said a R.F.C. man who has done some very fine work at -the front ; but, as a rule, the humorous plays a very minor part in his experiences. I have a funny episode of my own worth the telling; but I have heard a few good stories told by my colleagues in the inter vals of waiting which may amuse you. There-- are, of course, many • days.when flying is impossible, and it is at such times that airmen fore gather and while away the tedious hours by spinning yarns. It was in the early spring of last • year, and some of our chaps had been playing a game of football, when a happy idea occurred to one of them. "What a lark it would be," . this wag said, "to take up an old footer in a ' bus, drop it plump in the middle of some sleepy old Gcr-. man town and scare the beggars out of their wits." "Capital idea !" "Splendid !" "Bully for you, H ' came in a d...

FLOUR'S HIGH COST MAY BE REDUCED BY CAREFUL MIXING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 October 1916

FLOUR'S HIOH COST I MAY BE REDUCED BY CAREFUL j MIXING. | The Australian housewife is herself quite capable of doing all the flour mixing desirable, and she could ma terially, reduce the cost of living if she would get the aour mixing habit. There are some thirty substitute that could be mixed with wheat flour in making bread. Many of these are more nutritious than wheat flour, Bonie of them are cheaper than wheat flour and of these two or three, at least are commercial ly obtainable almost anywhere. Po tatoes, corn flour and rice in certain sections' can be used with wheat flour in making yeast bread. With wheat flour as dear as it iB now, the care ful housewife stands to effect quite a saving by using one of these products to eke out her wheat flour. Experi ments have Bhown that the substi tutes can be used successfully in the proportion of one part to three Parts of wheat flour. At least three-fourths of the mixture must be good wheat flour. Potatoes have a certain,.-, advantage ...

THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE MANAGEMENT OF BULLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 October 1916

THE FARM AND DAIRY. THE MANAGEMENT OF BULLS. | - I A good deal depends on the age of ; a bull, his disposition or temper, and ■ the conditions under which he isj kept. The more nearly breeding ani-; male live under natural conditions, ! the more certain is the proper de velopment and exercise of their pro creative powers, and there are no better conditions under which a bull can be kept than when he runs with | hie cows in the pasture. He gets abundant exercise, his feet are kept in good order, he does not get overfat, his food is suitable and cheap, and his services are pretty i sure. There are drawbacks to this ! plan, 0f course. j A vicious or savage old bull in a j pasture field, especially if there is a j public footpath running through it, ■ is a bit .dangerous, but the greatest' objection to the plan usually ad-! vanced is the uncertainty concerning ' the date of service of the cows, and . •when they are due to calve down, j Where running the bull at grass ia \ not convenient...

ROAN A SHORTHORN COLOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 October 1916

ROAN A SHORTHORN COLOUR. | -4 i Shorthorns are red, white anil roan, the'mixture of the red and the white forming the roan. Wherever roan cat tle are seen there of a certainty has a Shorthorn been also, because there is no other breed in which this pecu liar blending of the red and white prevails. Sometimes specimens in the black and white breeds show up with the hairs of those colours eo mingled as to offer a bluish tint, but that is i not roan. Nor will a mixture of yel- I low- or very light yellow and white i make roan, as for instance in the old English longhorns. | There is a peculiar richness about! the roan tinge that bespeaks a mel low hide underneath, and that, too, i is peculiar to the Shorthorn. White' markings may be inserted on "pelts! otherwise roan in true Shorthorn col ouring, but aB a general thing the roan colour obliterates the racial J markings of other breeds with which ! Shorthorn may be crossed. Crosses-1 with the whitefaces usually lose most1 of that characte...
