Power and Uses of Coal. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916

Power and Uses of Coal. p The energy contained in coal is en ormous. A pound of coal—that is to say, a piece about as big as a man's ; fist—in combining with oxygen, radi ates heat equivalent to the energy of lifting about 10,000,0001b. 1ft. high, or to the lifting of one ton to the top of Ben Nevis. Put otherwise, lib. of coal will do as much work as a powerful horse can do in five hours, remembering that the work done by a horse in one hour is nearly 2,000, foot pounds. These estimates refer to the poten tial power of coal ; but when we ac tually attempt to turn its heat into ' mechanical cnergy,we~ nncr'tfiat 'we can utilize only about one-eighth or ninth of its potential energy. Coal also gives us innumerable chemical products. Sixty years ago Sir William Pcrkin extracted from coal-tar a beautiful mauve dye, start ing a new branch of coal-tar chemis try, which has now grown to a huge l industry. From coal-tar we now extract not only an enormous number of dyes, : but also delicat...

"Have a Drop of Lunch, Old Top?" [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916

" Have a Drop of Lunch, Old Top?" The war "killed" the k-nut, so far as loafing and clothes were concerned, long ago, but it has not killed his spirit. On the contrary, "k-nuttisms' are as much in evidence as ever, and very characteristic are some of the present sayings of real Gilbert-the Filberts. No longer is it correct to say "Hallo, old thing !" on meeting a friend, "Hallo, old bird !" or "old top !" (why "top" and what it means, goodness alone knows !' is now the right form of salutation. Should a genuine k-nut wish to in vite another to eat with him at mid-day, he requests him to "come and have a drop of lunch," a pic turesque and amusing phrase borrow ed from the Navy ; while should the occasion be one on which drinks only i are consumed, "Cheery-o !" is now! the formula, in place of "good luck" ! "good health" or any similar remark! of a bygone day. j "Cheery-o I"—the expression is sus-j pected of having originated at Cam bridge—is now, in fact; a moBt handy and comprehensi...

WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916

WISE AND OTHERWISE. 1 A frugal and industrious maker has two daughters of whom ha ie very proud. He provides a eood home for them, dresses them well and is giving them a good education. Not long ago he drew on bis modest bank account for a sum suf ficient. to purchase a new piano for them. What followed may be des cribed in his own -words : "Oh, yes," he confided to a neigh bour, "they were grateful enough for it, of course, and it's a great com fort to hear 'em play and sing, but what do you suppose was the first thing the girls learned on it ?" "I'm sure I don't know," said the neighbour. " 'Everybody Works but Father.' " As soon as Lawson saw the stran ger at his gate he anticipated trouble. Moreover, he premised that it would . be about bis dog, and he was right. ! "My name is Petherton," commenc J ed the stranger, "and I've come to I see you about that dog of yours." I "Ah !" "Yes, sir. That ravenous canine o! j yours has bitten my mother-in-law | three times." I "Has he? Well,...

France's Foreign Legion. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 14 November 1916

France's Foreign Legion. There are about 600 Americans in the Foreign Legion of the French Army, 60 many of whom have peti tioned to join the Flying Corps that a squadron of Americans is being formed. It is an inspiring sight to see a regiment of the legion on the march; negroes and blond Swedes go side by side with swarthy Italians. Men who have dined with kings and dwelt in marble halls sink their identity un der a borrowed name and march with a Polish'tailor or « cowboy from the Wild West. All sorts of famous men have fal len on the field of battle while fight ing with the legion. Binet Valmer, from the Argentine ; a Luxemburg writer, Sosthene Kurth ; the son of Maxim Gorky, Camilio Ramirez, from Venezuela ; a Colombian poet, Fer nandez de Bengoecha ; another from Ecuador, Rodolfo Scminario, and Sanchez Carero, all fell for France, on the battlefields of the Artoi's and Champagne. The poet Ismail Urdometa was kill ed in the Dardanelles while rushing a Turkish trench at the point ...

WEANING THE FOAL. ——+-—— HANDLING AND WEANING. Whether more than" one marc with foal at foot should be run in a pad dock depends simply ou tlic temper of the mare, and the' convenience of the. owner, but where it is necessary as in the; case of small farms, a watchful eye should be kept on them ■ to iusurc comfort and quiet grazing for all.

TANKS AND DAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 November 1916

TANKS AND DAMS, How to make good work at th least cost is a matter of great • portance to the settler. ltu' First. Put thought into t.h<> Wor, that is, work with the brains ' well as with the muscle. For " stance, a man who works niorc surely than his mate in scooping I clam, really did more work than t^. other who was evidently bustling The little secret was, the handle „i the "thinking worker"' was bent up ward, while the handle of the oth»r scoop was straight—the thinking t0an had found he did not have to bond his back so much, or to put forth as much strength when tilling JIKj turning over the full scoop. Second. Make the work as easy as possible for the horses or bullocks One way is to reduce the draught in keeping the "cradles" under th« scoop in good order. When the cra dles wear thin the scoop is drawn by the whole of the bottom in con tact with the ground, causing mor? friction, and almost doubling dy work of the animals drawing th? scoop. Third. The front of ...

DODGING SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 November 1916

DODGING SHEEP. 4 — By "Crowfoot," in the /Pastoral Review.1' The word "dodging" is an appel lation applied to shepherding, or droving sheep, and is an Australian invention given to the occupation by j old-time drovers and shepherds, and j as both these personages are nearly | defunct, the term has gone out of j general use. It is a pity that the craft of tliescL men • is not mol'e in | vogue to-day, as it would save us I from many a blunder. The majority | of persons assuming the name of drovers or shepherds arc only sheep hunters. A drover's duties are somewhat different to those of a shepheid. JJe is the man who .conveys sheep from one part, of the country to another, while a shephord tfciids his flock '.n one locality, and sees to its protec tion and general well-being. On a holding very little shepherding of thj old type is done now, because all holdings arc fenced into paddocks The drover, however, is very much in evidence, especially in droughty times. He is to be seen on all ...

BLINDNESS IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 17 November 1916

BLINDNESS IN HORSES. Llorses are more often articled with blindness than any other domestic animal, a fact ascribable to different causes, some of which are as fol lows Racks above the mangers in stables, so that the horse has to ■raise his head to get at the hay. Dust, seed, and sharp-bearded grain fall into the animal's eyes, setting up inflammation, and ■ often leading to the loss of an eye. The injurious effect of the pungent' vapour of am monia in most stables, and bad lighting, '/'he use of blinkers and j carelessness with the whip, flicking 1 the eye and rupturing a blood ves i >sel, will also cause inflammation ; and blindness. More often than is J realised the end of the whip flicks • the eye, particularly when a driver i is simply playing his whip round the | horse's head by way of enlivening him. j ■ __ _ : Corporals in the Life Guards used to be commissioned officers, ranking with the senior lieuteaants of other regiments. 2058.
