DRESSING FOR HARNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 10 November 1916
DRESSING FOR HARNESS. A good dressing for black harness can be made from 2 lb. of mutton &nbsp; suet and 3 lb. beeswax, melted over a slow fire, 4 lb. sugar, 2 lb. lamp- black, 2 lb. soft soap, and 4 lb. in- digo powder. When the whole has been thoroughly mixed, half a gal- lon of oil of turps should be added. If the harness is brown, the lamp- black and indigo powder can be left out. "Oh, yes," said Mrs. Smith, "my husband is an enthusiastic archaeo- logist. And I never knew it until yesterday. I found in his desk some queer-looking tickets with the in- scription, 'Mudhorse, 8 to 1.' And when I asked him what they were he explained to me that they were re- lics of a lost race. Isn't it interest- ing?" &nbsp; &nbsp;
Pearls of Great Price! WHEN THE PRODUCT OF THE OYSTER FETCHES SMALL FORTUNES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916
Pearls of Great Price ! A ♦ . WHEN THE PRODUCT OF THE OYSTER FETCHES SMALL FORTUNES. It is no insignificant tribute to the financial stability of -England that in this time of stress the record price of £24,000 should be paid for a necklace of these emblems of purity.. I It was sold at Messrs. Christie s the other day, and consisted of three rows of 193 pearls, weighing 403 car ats. The pearls were all perfect in sheen, and the price was run up from £7,000 to the figure named. | This was 1,500 more than the sum paid some years ago for a superb necklace which had belonged to the late Lady Henry Gordon-Lennox. It comprised 287 matched and graded Oriental pearls, arranged in five rows, the net weight being no less: than 3,650 grains. This also was offered at Christie's, the bidding starting at a modest | £5,000. Competition quickly carried the price to £20,000. When by leaps of £500, £22,500 was reached, it was knocked down, amid a round of applause. Another remarkable pearl necklace, ...
The Vision of Birds. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916
The Vision of Birds. If our airmen possessed the viaion of birds it would, perhapB, be well for us. No animal—certainly no man—pos sesses one half the power of vision given by a bird. It is said that the eagle can look straight at the sun. But this is hard to decide, inaomuch as it sel dom falls to our lot to see an eagle. Small birds* however—which all can see—can "notice a spec a mile away. Notice the "alarm" on a fine day among the birds in a locality, one minute all the choir is in full music, j Then suddenly a disturbance takes place ! Not a bird is seen, .or heard, in a minute. At last the human watcher sees a tiny spec in the sky. It comes nearer and nearer. It is noticed to be a sparrowhawk. The birds saw it long before the watcher. Unerringly, too, they put it down to be a hawk. Hence their alarm.
THE WORD "CALICO." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916
THE WORD "CALICO.' The word "calico'- has a queer ori gin. Many centuries ago the first j monarch of the province of Malabar, j in Hindustan/ gave to one of his chiefs as a reward for distinguished j services his sword and all the land j within the limit of which a cock j crowing at a certain temple could be I heard. .' From this circumstance the little town which grew up in the centre of this territory was called j Calicoda, or "the cock crowing." j Afterwards it was called Calicut, I and from this place the first cotton j goods were imported into England j bearing the word "calico."
UNSHAVEN SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916
UNSHAVEN SOLDIERS. No anxiety about shaving is felt by i the French conscript when he joins j the army, for he is encouragcd by the i authorities to grow a beard, and, j indeed, it is from this fact that he. has obtained his nickname of "poilu,' j the French equivalent for "Tommy j Atkins," which literally means'shag-1 gy' or 'hairy.' The beard was favour-i ed in the English Army during the j Crimean War for the protection it ■ gave from the intense cold of the I trenches before Sebastopol, and the] apparition of so many bearded men in England after the war made beards for a long time fashionable in that country. "Young man, did you kiss my daughter in the hall last night ?" said the girl's mother sternly. "I. thought I did," said the young: man promptly. "But really you look so young that I can't always tell I you and your daughter apart." ! • The impending storm did not burst. •
NOVEL BEAR HUNTING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916
NOVEL BEAR HUNTING. Among the sports of India is the capturing of bears, and to this end curious means- are sometimes devised. For \ example, four or five sturdy men are armed, two with long spears cross-barred on the handles close to the sharp two-edged blade, and two or three with ten-foot bamboos, of which the ends are smeared with bird lime. These hunters sally forth with dogs before dawn. They, pass along the base of the \ hills with the fresh morning wind blowing up the plains below. / —. Should the hunters be lucky, it is | not long before the dogs wind the bear. The dogs are slipped, and dis appear in the semi-darkness. The hunters run up to the spot where the bear is. fighting with the dogs.' . The men with the limed poles poke the bear in the ribs and adroitly twist -the ends in its long hair, thus hol'd ing it fast on each flank. The spear men complete the operation,, by re peated spear thrusts."

The sides are sewed up, an opening to the nest thus fornvi ed being left at the top. The leaf, apparently hanging from a twig, would never be taken for a nest.

FROM THE WORLD'S PRESS. OLDEST ENGLISH VINE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916
FROM THE WORLD'S PRESS. ——♦ • OLDEST ENGLISH VINE. The famous "great vine" at Hamp ton Court,-from the charge of which Mr. James Jack has just retired, is probably the oldest black-fruited vine in England, ' though the claim would be disputed by four rival patriarchs. It was grown from a cutting procur ed in 1768 from an. Essex vinery by the celebrated landscape gardener, "Capability Brown." The oldest white-fruited vine is probably a White Tokay at Harewood House, near Leeds. This was planted about 1780, and still carries nearly 200 fine bun ches of grapes, some of which fre quently win prizes at Leeds and Edin burgh.

Our Keen-eyed "Kites." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916
Our Keen-eyed "Kites." "Above the lines, looking towards the-German trenches, was a great cluster of kite-balloons," wrote a fa mous war correspondent in describing the beginning of the great British push. "They were poised very high, held steady by the air-pockets on the ropes of the baskets where the artil lery observers sit. I counted seven teen *6f them, the largest group that has ever been seen along the Front." "Sausages" they call these kite balloons in the Army, the name com ing from the odd, sausage-like ap pearance the craft have in the air. They have one great advantage over the ordinary, old-fashioned bal loon ; not only can they be held cap tive in a stronger wind than an or dinary balloon, but they are also much steadier in the air, thus render ing the position of those "up" for purposes of observation, etc., more secure, comfortable, and effective. Instead of being round in shape, they aro elongated, and the part known as the "kite" is a kind of half-open attachment a...

Is it Coming to This? SHALL WE FLY ACROSS EUROPE BEFORE LUNCH? [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916
Is it Coming to This ? * SHALL WE FLY ACROSS EUROPE BEFORE LUNCH ? '•I must hurry or I shall lose my aeroplane ?" It is not unlikely that within a •few years this remark will become quite a commonplace. Jones and Brown, who now hustle to catch the 9.22 fast, will stroll down • to embark on the 8.45 aero plane, with the consciousness that they will be wafted promptly and [ pleasantly to their .destinations with • all the despatch of the magic carpet. War has indeed so . vitalised the science of airmenship that no stretch of imagination as to its prospects can be too wild. The commercial uses of the air have become so ob vious that it is clear that, when Europe is at peace, great air com panies will arise to dispute the sup rcmacy of transport' with the railway and shipping companies. We shall take trips to Paris and Madrid as casually and with little more expenditure of time than we row take jaunts to Walton Heath or Southend, Cook's fortnightly and three-week trips, instead of being...

The Jutland Trafalgar I THRILLING STORY OF THE : GREATEST SEA FIGHT IN HIS : v: TORY. By P. 0. Wyndham, of H.M.S. New Zealand. We were steaming in single line ""ahead on the afternoon of May 31st, the Lion in the van, and the Indefa tigable last but one of the line. The light cruisers and destroyers were thrown out as a screen on either side, and. well ahead of the Cruiser Squadron, scouting for the enemy. About half-past two there came a wireless signal from the senior light cruiser's captain, telling us that he was in touch with the light cruisers of the enemy, and that the German battle-cruisers were also present in ' ' .some force. The Cruiser Squadron immediately worked up to full speed and closed on the Germans. We dashed along in line style, the great ships cleaving through the sea with the water streaming from their bows, and ranging guns firing all the time through the mist. Soon all the ships were in action, and the German cruisers turned, right round and start ed heading ...
