THE ENTERTAINMENT. The usual fuii house essembled to witness Mr A, S. Haybittel's, pro : ductioa of drama, music and merri ment at the Temperance Hall. The first part consisted of the drama " Counsel's Opinion," in which Mr W, B, Apperly played the part of Sir John Bendwill, K.C., A. S. Haybittel was his clerk, Morgan, Waster Gavan Keane Impersonated the grandson Max, and Miss Martyr played !he part of Max's widowed mother. The great barrister had disowned and disinherited his daughter, some years previously on her marriage, of which he had dis approved, but chance brings the 10 year grandson into his chambers; and the boys irresistable personal ity brings about an unexpected reconciliation, The outstanding feature of the portrayal of this pleasing little drama was the fine performance of young Gavan Keane I who astonished the audience with his clever rendi'ion of a difficult boy i part; he well deserved the rounds of applause bestowed upon him. !

POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 October 1916

POULTRY. ♦ r Moat in «orue form must be fed poultry. Fowls on free range, especi ally in an orchard, gather a vast amount of bugs, worini and insects that furnish them all the meat food required. But very few flocks have the advantage of an orchard range, and as the majority of flocks are kept in confined quarters the question of a meat supply must be carefully considered. The green bone cutter has done much in solving this important question, but an injudicious use of green bone has caused troubles in other ways. It developed worms in fowls and it produced irritableneFB in the stock. In young, growing stock it caused a too rapid development of the comb and wattles. A fresh meat diet should be given cautiously, not more than an ounce for each hen and no oftener than every other day. An excellent substitute for green bone is the commercial meat sold by poultry supply houses. Being thoroughly cook ed and dried it is in a safe condition far feeding, and can be safely fed at the rate of...

CORRESPONDENCE. And Conscription Scarecrows. To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 October 1916

CORRESPONDENCE, And Conscription Scarecrows. To the Editor Sir,—After reading of all the anti conscription bogeys, such as the " yellDW peril, Jap husbands for our girls." and all the dire calamities which are to happen to Australia, £ am reminded of the story of the old man. who when dying, called bis family around him and said, my dear children, in my time I ha*e known a lot of troubles ; but the most of them never came, I think we can go even better and safely say, that a'l of the woeful things predicted will come under the heading of the old man's troubles and will not come. I am also struck with another phase of the conscription question and that is this-1 note that almost all mothers and sisters who have Lad sons and brothers at the front for some .time are going to vote " Yes," whi e those whose relatives are going uow are inclined to take the opposite side. Now I would like these prospec ive •' IJo" yo'ers to ask themselves *his question—If their soldier sons and brothers ha...

Appeal from Mr Hughes. MAINTAIN AUSTRALIA'S HONOUR, Vote Against Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 October 1916

Appeal from Mr Hughes. MAINTAIN AUSTRALIA'S HONOUR, Vote Against Germany^ Fellow Citizens of Australia, You are facing the Rrea&st 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 eivilsation. 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 j the men at the front and shorten j the war. I Every possible falsehood has ( been invented by those who oppose the national cause : every con ceivable means of intimidation, otten directed by German hands, has been used. But on the polling day all lies and all tremors should alike be cast aside. I appeal to the Australian nation not t...

Australia's Water-Diviner. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

Australia's Water-Diviner. Although mentioned in despatches, the name of Sapper Stephen Kelly, of the 3rd Australian Light Horse, .did not attract much attention. Nevertheless, he probably saved the lives of hundreds of men who were in danger of dying from thirst. Sapper Kelly has remarkable gifts as a water diviner, and at Suvla Bay responded to the call for a display of his special powers with a success which was of incalculable importance i to the health of the men at a very I critical time. An expert had been in-1 structed to find water, and reported j that there was none to be found. It! was in August, and the scarcity was J such that the troops were down to their last few pints. j The need was so compelling that it j was decided to arrange for a supply j by motor. Brigadier-General Hughes, i however, suddenly bethought him of j Sapper Kelly's reputation in Aus- j tralia, and sent for him. "Is there | any water at Suvla?" the General' asked. Sapper Kelly declared defini-[ tely ...

Bullet Wounds. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

Bullet Wounds. Medical observation is exercised over the facts that in all bullet wounds it has been found that the aperture which the bullet has made increases in proportion to the length of range of fire, and that when the bullet goes right through the body or* limb the aperture at the exit is considerably larger than at the en trance. A bullet at 200 to 400 yards makes a passage smaller than itself. Over 1,000 yards it exceeds the diam eter of the bullet, and when the bul let is nearly at the end of its range the wound is very large. The explanation is quite simple. The spiral rifling in the barrel causes the bullet to spin, and the Bpin is maintained throughout its course. But the resistance of the air pressing on the point of the bullet in front tends to slow it, while the momen tum of the back part of the projectilo pushes it forward. This causes a wobble in the bullet, the point of which soon begins to describe a small circle in the air. • At short range there is little time ...

Living Aeroplanes. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

Living Aeroplanes. : «, It would be a mistake to suppose th&t the bird's wings enable it to fly. If wings spelt flying, any of us could attach a pair and soar into the air. The hollow bones make light bodies, but they are attached to a rigid backbone, which forms the main feature of the bird's body. Th.is gives the central firmness, and the muscles do the rest. The wings balance their owners, and the tail acts as a rud der for steering. Often enough the hird seems to use its tail as a sort of brake. It is interesting to compare the. bird with the product of man's skill —the aeroplane. To begin with, there is no aeroplane made which copies the up and down motion of the bird's wings, or planes. But, naturally, •man first tried to copy the living fliers around him. He made wings of feathers, etc., connected them with his shoulderfe and legs, and found that his muscles could not raise him 'an inch. The muscles, or motors, which now drive him through the air are as strong as 200 ...

How Limpets Stick. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

How Limpets Stick. Everyone is familiar with the say ing "to stick like a limpet," but there are not bo many who know how it is that a limpet is able to stick as it does to the rocks upon which | it passes its existence. The creature is able, by means of the central por tion of its body, which can be raiBed independently of the edge or frill which surrounds it, • to create a vac uum, much in the same way that a piece of soft wet leather can be made to adhere to a smooth surface by pressing out< all the air. Thus the so-called "strength" of the limpet is largely due to atmospheric pressure. It is not entirely so, however, for if they are closely examined it will be seen that the shells accommodate themselves round the edges of the surface of the rock upon which the | limpet is located, and if removed to j another spot the edge, of the shell J will probably be found to be a very | bad fit, and the creature's power of j adhesion somewhat lessened. If taken I by surprise with...

Do Dogs Understand Death? [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

Do Dogs Understand Death ? —A Many interesting questions con cerning the intelligence of the dog have been raised by episodes of war in which thiB'animal has figured. The extensive use of dogs to draw light guns and other military vehi cles, their services in rescuing the wounded and their remarkable devo tion to the soldiers, have given un-' usual opportunities for observing the behaviour of this friend of man. J Does a dog know when his master is dead ? Does a dog really feci grief ? Does a dog rescue the wounded from love of mankind ? Does* a dog employed for fighting purposes feel a hatred of the enemy ? These are a few of the interesting questions that have been raised by war and are, being debated. One in cident has been made the subject of a poem by Miguel Zamacois, who is one of the most popular poets of the day in France. He refers to the un doubted fact that a dog was found watching day after day over the grave, near Bsternay, of ten French soldiers, one of them had picked...

Precipitate. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

Precipitate. She. was a cool and promising hos pital nurse, always adroit and cool headed in a surgical crisis. He was a venerable Polish Jew, tall and dig nified, with flowing, patriarchal beard, but unable to speak a word of English. Entering the receiving room of the hospital, armed "with a large and" deadly-looking blue bottle, labelled "Poison," he approached the nurse and gesticulated violently, pointing alternately to the bottle and to his chest. "Ah ! Blue bottle. Poisonous con tents accidentally swallowed. Emetic. Urgent," was the prompt diagnosis, promptly followed by a dose of the j most powerful emetic known to man kind. j The treatment proved eminently j successful, but to remove all possible trace of danger a second very severe dose was 'administered. At this point an earnest but in articulate protest was made by the j patient, and at the same moment the busy house-surgeon, who had hitherto been angaged on an urgent accident; case, camc into the receiving-room.

Bygone Submarines. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

Bygone Submarines. According to researches which have been made by a French professor, it would appear that submarines have almost as hoary a past as aero planes, which, as is well known, in volved- ideas which are centuries old. It appears that submarines were built as early as the beginning of the seventeenth century. The origin of the invention is older still. Aristotle tells how Alexander the Great made use of submarines during the siege of Tyre more than 300 years, before Christ. „ A Dutchman named Cornelius Van Drebbel astounded London , in 1620 ,with a submarine that held twelve oarsmen and some passengers, among whom was King James I. Previous to this, in 1534, a monk suggested the idea that a ship be constructed of metal so as to be watertight "and able to resist the pressure of water. . A submarine was constructed according to the monk's idea, and was shown to be practic able to a certain degree. In 1537 a ship with twenty cannon, eighty sailors, and many bags of money on ...
