HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

I HOUSEHOLD HINTS. j When purchasing stair carpet it is wist) to buy half a yard more than is actually needed. This extra length can be folded in at either end. Every month or so the carpet should be moved up or down, so that the piece that was trodden on will now be against the back of the stair, in this way the carpet is worn evenly, and not just on the tread of the stair. A good method to test linen is to insert into it a sharp needle, and if this goes clean between the threads it is a proof that you have the gen uine material. If the threads all split, then it is cotton. Another test is to pull out a thread from the cut edge and pass it between the. nails of the thumb and the first finger. If it is linen, the thread will curl up quite smoothly. If cotton, the thread will assume a woolly appear ance. A good way to keep salt dry is to! mix a teaspoonful of cornflour with; every six teaspoonfuls of table salt, i well drying and pounding and mixing, the whole. It will keep dry even ...

ORANGE CURB FOR INFLUENZA. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

ORANGE CURB FOR INB'LUBNZA. One of the cures for influenza is do- J sage with an alkali. -One theory is ■ that the acid of the orange becomes j changed in the blood into an alka-j line carbonate and thus acts precise-1 ly like the alkali commonly prescrib-: ed for influenza. The oranges, ac-l cording to this idea, should be of j good quality, sweet, and juicy. Half a dozen should be eaten daily, and the best time is between meals when i one is a bit hungry. ,• An American steamer which lately arrived at Sydney from San Fran cisco, reports that she picked up wireless messages from the station at Tuckerton, New Jersey, when . she was 9,000 miles distant from that place. This iB claimed to be a world's record.

Nomads of the Hedgerow. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Nomads of the Hedgerow. Quite a number of gipsies are in the armies ol Europe, both as allies and enemies of Britain, for they arc international and know no country as their own. Their'origin is a mys tery, although it is certain they hail from the East. It is ^ generally thought that they,come from Egypt —hence their name—but it is by no means certain. They have been thought to be the Ten Lost Tribes also, and they certainly speak of all non-Romany folk as-Gentiles. Gipsies are regarded as a nuisance wherever they go, as pariahs and outcasts, but in their personal rela tions they arc the soul of honour, and a gipsy may be trusted to keep his plighted word and to stand by his friend. They possess a certain lofty pride, • a ccrtain proud code of honour which a gipsy would rather die than lower. Daughters are more useful than sons in gipsyland, and the parents often put obstacles in the way of the girls taking the man of their choice. Thus elopements are' common and easy. There are no...

Ladies' Column. CONCERNING DRIED FRUITS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Ladies' Column. «—— CONCERNING DRIED FRUITS. Dried fruits, such as figs, dates, prunes, currants, raieiB®, apricots, pears, apples, etc., are very nourish ing, and when properly prepared and cooked form good, wholesome food. Currants are especially valuable, containing as they do, about '80 per cent, of nutriment. Figs, whether green, dried, or crystallised, form a very wholesome food, for besides the! grape sugar they contain a large| amount of nitrogenous or flesh-form-j ing matter, which makes this a nu-i tritious and digestible fruit. Green; figs are useful as food when eatenj raw,or made into jam, preserves or| stewed. For culinary purposes dried figs may be used largely. A number of sweet dishes can be made with them which represent a salutary change during the months when other; fresh fruits are scarce and dear. Fig' puddings, dried chopped figs added j to rice or bread and butter pudding, ( fig salad, fig sandwiches, and figs1 made into sweets are all ways ofj utilising this...

Cats v. Rats. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Cats v. Rats. * Rats arc yearly responsible for £20,000,000 of the United Kingdom's lost millions, says an .expert. . The taxation of cats and their sub sequent- disappearance from our homes would, we are told cause rats to be come legion-, and would lead to a plague-stricken community. The same authority goes on to say that, in countries • where few cats exist, the death-rate is usually found to be ex ceedingly high. He attributes this fact to the cats, who are mainly res ponsible for ridding the world of a most deadly disease-breeder. A cat corps is suggested for the special purpose of rat-destroying and the consequent purifying of our cities. Cats should come under Government control and should be systematically bred, and intelligent types despatch ed to various centres in the country there to wreak vengeance 011 the un fortunate rat. But cats as professional rat-catch ers are ousted in favour of man him-] self. A Mr. Dalton, of Blackfriars, j London, has applied for exemption; f...

Steel Rail Telephones. CONDUCTING BUSINESS FROM A RAILWAY CARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Steel Rail Telephones/ CONDUCTING BUSINESS FROM A RAILWAY CARRIAGE. An inventor of Philadelphia has demonstrated that it is possible to telephone {rom a moving train by using the steel rails as conductors instead of copper wires. The technique of the invention is simple. The telephone-box in the train is rigged with wires which run to the rear of the engine. There J they are attached to a pair of metal! shoes suspended from the locomotive, j The shoes may or may not be kept in constant touch with the rails ; they may, however, be regulated by a j signal from the car. The other end of the track, say in New York, j would likewise be in touch with th<? metal shoes, the wire leading from j the terminal to the nearest telephone, exchange. Mr. Macfarlane believes,, that he can engage in telephonic conversation for twenty minutes while the train is travelling at a mile-a-minute clip, j his plan is to make every twenty miles a track zone. j The train telephone idea was con ceived...
