Marvels of Flight. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

Marvels of Flight. There is nothing more wonderful in Nature than the power of flight pos sessed by birds, and no-subject which yields more startling facts upon in vestigation. "The way of an eagle in the air" is one of those things of. which Solomon expressed himself ig norant ; and there is something truly marvellous in the mechanism which controls the. scythe-like sweep of wings peculiar to most birds of prey. Yet even' naturalists of the first or der have had little or nothing to say about the power of flight of birds, while some of them speak on very insufficient evidence. Witness Michclet'B statement that the swal low flies at the rate of 240 miles an hour. Roughly, this . gives us 1,000 miles in four hours, but naturally, even in its swiftest dashes, the swal low does not attain to anything like ! this speed. But the Duke of Argyll J is rather under than over the mark when he computes the speed at more than 100 miles per hour. The mechanism of flight in xthe swallow is carrie...

WELL SEASONED. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

WELL SEASONED. I Throughout the christening cere mony the baby smiled up beautifully into the clergyman's face. "Well, madam," said he to the young wife, "I must congratulate you on your little one's behaviour. I have christencd . more than two thousand babies, but I never before christened one that behaved so well as yours." The young mother smiled demurely and said, "His father and,I, »'ith a pail of water, have been practising on him for the last ten days." Among applicants for service as a general housemaid in an Edinburgh .family was a raw-boned Irish girl of rather forbidding aspect. "Do you love children ?" asked the mistress •of the house, when satisfied that the girl would suit with respect to most requirements. "Well, mum," respond ed the Celt, with a grim smile, "that all depends on the wages." » "Scientists are now generally agreed that drunkenness is a disease, and that the man who drinks should be treated by a physician." "Oh, well, moet men who .drink don't care who t...

Mixed Metaphors. "A FLEA-BITE IN THE OCEAN." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

Mixed Metaphors. - * "A FLEA-BITE IN THE OCEAN." Mr. "Lulu" Harcourt's father, Sir William, once said, when taunting an Opposition member as to a Bill which had not come off : "We overlaid this bantling, and bo it never came to birth'-'; and about the same time a well-known member of Parliament de clared, in his grand oratorical man ner, that "the pale face of the Brit ish soldier is the backbone of the In dian Army." On another occasion this same ora tor, still talking about India, said, scornfully : "Talk, of this as a loan to India." Why, it is a mere flea bite in the ocean." On the very same J day, in "another place" the late Lord Cross said : "The allegation is that the places are so far off that the man couldn't be in both of them at the Bame time, an allegation which we den}'." And on another occasion he looked round the noble chamber with qiiesioning eye and said : "I think I heard a smile." He certainly heard ai roar of laughter the next moment. A similar slip- was made by ...

IN APPRECIATION OF RED CROSS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

IN APPRECIATION OF RED CROSS WORK. By A.. 3. M'Nabb. f I take off my hat$ to the srfflv of voluntary workers la the Red Cross interests io Australia—to our splendid women who worked so hard with their hands ; to others who showed aptitude in orgauisa-, tion ; to the men helpers who, in their spare time, packed and packed in what they considered so humane and pleasing a cause. From time to time we have read in the Mel-i bourne dailies of how Red Cross goods had been purchased by some individual, who had informed some other individual, in canteens in various places. -Yet during my stay in Egypt (certaioly only four months) I failed 10 hear the story from any soldiers that he had ever purchased stuff bearing »he Red Cross brand. Remember, I do not say it was impossible to do so. And if it were possible, iheu the onus and responsibility res'ed with the soldier and not with the Society's representatives, I have seen the distribution of thousands of pounds of Red Cross stuff, and in s-uch...

APPROPRIATE CHARACTER. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

APPROPRIATE CHARACTER. Ordinary concerts had grown rather stale in Muddleton, where ererybody sings, or thinks he can. So a novel ty was arranged, in which each per former was to appear in a fancy dress and sing a suitable song. Tbe first items went off very well, al though when Miss Anticke came on in a simple, girlish gown, and ?an? "For Ever and For Ever," the audi ence got nervous and thought sh* meant to do so. Then the village crier appeared, in sailor rig. and de- _ claimed "Asleep in the Deep.'' *n a voice high-pitched and cracked. "Who is he ?" "What charsrter does he represent ?" were the ques tions the listeners asked cach other, wildly. Then came the usual voic® from the rear of the hall, saying "Why, 'e'B Sing-Bad the Sailor." Red ants may he kept put of barrels by drawing a wide cfaa» mark round the top, near the edgt When it is likely to be wet, gardwi spiders spin only short threads.

"Surprise Packets." MASTERPIECES WHICH COST POUNDS, AND LAST A FEW SECONDS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

" Surprise Packets." MASTERPIECES WHICH COST POUNDS, AND LAST A FEW SECONDS. ^ ' One of the outstanding features of modern warfare is the amazing con sumption of shells, which is greatly increasing the cost, to put the mat ter bluntly, of killing a man ! Sta tisticiana are mostly agreed that for - many years, on an average, the cost .of this operation was about £3,000, and that in South Africa, where the conditions were exceptional, it rose to £8,000. But experts give higher figures, pointing out that in the Russo-Japanese War every man kill ed represented an expenditure of more than £4,000. If the cost prove to be greater in the European War, it will be mainly due to the prodigality in shells. In Northern France, the French, think ing that the Germans were about to attack, hurled into their position 40,000 shells in thirty minutes, and in the Vosges they have frequently rained 4,000 on a front of only 2C0 yards. No less generous are the Ger mans, as they showed most con clusively d...

RATHER A SHOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 31 October 1916

RATHER A SHOCK. With an idea of testing his pupils' : knowledge of their mother-tongue a schoolmaster wrote on the blackboard I the well-known proverb, "A wink ia | as good as a nod to a blind horse." | Then he told the class to rewrite ! this saying, using their own words, i but retaining the original meaning tf the sentence. Some of the results were good, and ! others bad ; but the schoolmaster nearly fainted when he read the at | tempt of one bright little eight-year old lassie. i She had written : "A spasmodic movement of the optic is as adequate as a slight in clination of the cranium to an equina quadruped devoid of its visionary capacities." "Well, did you enjoy your trip to London ? What did you find new there ?" "Why, somethin' wuth seein'. The hull place is full o' cabs with cash registers on 'em an' red flags to show, folks it's dangerous to dispute the fare. They call 'cm taxidermy cabs, 'cause ef you don't mind the drivers will jest take the skin of! ye." "Prisoner," sa...
