Three Seconds. LIFE OF A BIG GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Three Seconds. LIFE QF A BIG GUN. At a meeting of the Faraday So ciety, Dr. W. Rosenhain, F.R.S., gavo a special lecture on the making of the big gun, in which he extolled the work of the British artillery engin eer and the metallurgist. Sir Robert referred to the fact that the life of a gun waB really very short—e.g., that of a modern high velocity gun was not much more than three seconds. By this was meant | that if one added up the length of time during which the projectile re-, mained in the gun, it would be found that under full service velocities the total time, and consequently the life of the inner gun tube, did not amount to much more than three seconds before the erosion set up in terfered with the accuracy of aim. Several interesting examples were j given by Sir Robert of remarkable ! results that he had witnessed as be ing obtained from what lie called that "modern high-speed and great-power ■ heat-engine known as the big gun." I One of these was that of a 9-in. I wrough...

Strange Foster-mothers. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Strange. Foster-mothers. A cat which belonged to an hotel in a well-known seaside resort was rearing {our kittens, when one of the servants, going to look at the new arrivals, was surprised to find a rat Buckling with the kittens, the cat nursing the rodent with as much soli citude as if it had been her own kitten. The old saying ""that "they do things better in France" seems to ap ply to their cats, for some time ago the report came that a French feline had actually hatched out a brood of chickens, the eggs having been aban doned by the hen. The cat had a litter of kittens about the same time that the eggs hatched out, and she brought the two families up together to the best of her ability. Strangely, an English bulldog did almost exactly the same .thing, except that the dog did not do the hatch ing. For some weeks this dog a champion named Hampton Billy, mothered a brood of chicks and a single kitten. They all slept in his kennel, accompanied him on his daily walk, and fed out of ...

SINISTER. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

SINISTER. A servant girl, who had always at tended divine service, but who also could not read, had, from constant attendance, got the service by rote and could repeat it extremely well. But a few Sundays previous to her marriage she was accompanied in the same pew by her beau, to whom she did not like it to be known that she could not read ; she therefore took up the prayer-book, and held it be fore her. Her lover wished to have a sight ot it also, but, unfortunately for her, she held it upside down. The man, astonished said, "Why, you have the book wrong side upwards." "I know it," said she confusedly. "I always read so, for I am left handed."

Thunder v. Guns. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Thunder v. Guns. A During the great battle of Verdun the roar of artillery was said to be audible in Holland, over a hundred miles away, and the guns of Flanders have often been heard iu Kent. But it is a most remarkable fact that, although any great roar is al ways likened to thunder, yet thun der has never been heard fourteen miles from the flash, and some of the severest thunderstorms of lato years were inaudible sev£n miles away ! It is interesting and often com forting during thunder to be able to ascertain the distance of the focus of the storm, which, as far as personal danger is concerned, is all that mat ters. This can be done by remember ing that sound- travels at the rate of about 1,125ft. a second. If, therefore, the interval between the sight of the flash and the sound of the thunder be one second, the distance of the flash is 1,125ft. ; if two seconds, 2,250ft. ; if live seconds, about a mile ; if ten seconds, two miles ; and if a minute, thirteen miles —a distance at ...

Perilous Naps. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Perilous Naps. i At A short time ago a man was dis covered in his lunch-hour fast asleep on a plank. His arms were hanging down, one on each side of the board, which was a foot wide. He was snor ing gloriously, and quite careless, whether awake or asleep, that if he turned over for greater comfort he would "tumble out of bed" one hun dred and twenty feet, for that plank was part of the scaffolding erectcd for the repair of a church spire ! A siiailar disregard for danger was reported lately during the erection of some electrical works. One of the men engaged on the tall chimney, missing his mate at the lunch-hour, went up the half-finished chimney to find him. He discovered him fast asleep on a narrow ledge of brick in side the shaft, a fall from which meant a drop of eighty feet. The other week a circus arrived in a certain town, at an early hour af ter a long journey and a performance the previous night. As a consequence few of the company got any sleep. That day there was the usu...

Reading the Dictionary. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

Reading the Dictionary. Mr. Rudyard Kipling finds both pleasure and profit in reading the dictionary, and his habit largely ac counts for bis wonderful knowledge of words, his rich vocabulary, and his newness in the use of words. He J does not confine himself to the or dinary dictionary. He likes to look ! at a slang edition, or a dictionary of f a dialect. There is a certain noble lord who loves nothing better than turning over the pages of Bradshaw, spying out all the ways to anywhere, all the ; branch 'lines, and noting the railway stations with queer names. He is an adept in all railway lore, and is of ; ten referred to by his brother peers | when a moot point is raised about the iron roads of the world, for his knowledge extends from Charing Cross to New York, via Yokohama. A great fondness for the "Encyclo paedia Britannica" characterises a well-known popular novelist. He will often be found sitting in his delight ful old-world garden reading an arti cle on navigation or aeron...

Why Jack Wears Blue. THAT HE ISN'T IN SCARLET IS DUE TO THE MEREST CHANCE—AND A KING'S QUICK EYE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916

~Why Jack Wears Blue. THAT HE ISN'T IN SCARLET IS DUE TO THE MEREST'CHANCE— AND A KING'S QUICK EYE. \ The familial- blue serge uniform of the-. British Navy is known and res pected in every country in the world, ,yet few, even among the hundreds of "thousands of men who wear it, know whence it was derived. It was only by the merest chance that the sailor was not clad in a gold-lace-bedecked tunic of scarlet cloth, with tight blue pantaloons, for, at the time when he was con sidering a uniform for his as yet motely-clad sailors, King George II. had decided on a rig of this charac ter. Already had the patterns been ap proved, already were the tailors hard' at work on the first six hundred uni forms—destined for the men of _the King's own yacht—when his Majesty taking a ride in Hyde Park, happen ed t.o notice the Duchess of Bedford riding- in a habit that for neatness and general spick-and-spanness would be hard to beat.
