"Some" Criticism. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916
"Some" Criticism. This is how a Far West paper des cribed a famous prima donna's efforts to charm the savage breast :— "Her voice was a cross between the hum of a cyclone and the screech of a locomotive doing time. It trem bled away in cat-like cadences, and rose again like the wail of the Hound of the Baskervilles. Again it rose in mellow tones like a gale dallying over the mouth of a milk-jug. "Stopping to take breath, she rose slowly but surely on her tip-toes, and with gyrating arms and heaving chest gave a good imitation of the approach of a Dakota blizzard. "Old Jim Baker's pet panther, chained to a post in a yard back of the opera-house, heard some of the high notes, and they Bkeered the poor beast out of a year's growth." Here is "souie" criticism of a re cently much-boomed novel from the 'Southern Nevada Swashbuckler.' "We started,in to read this volume at half past eleven last evening and, when we came to, the morning sun had turned the milk sour on the doorstep. This is a...

SOUSA'S SAVING HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 21 November 1916
SOUS A'S SAVING HUMOUR. On one occasion, John Philip Sousa, by his promptness, was the direct means of stopping a panic, which might have had the most dis astrous results. While his band was playing before twelve thousand people in St. Louis, the electric lights in the hall went out suddenly.. People began to more i uneasily in their seats, and some even began to make a rush for the door. Coolly tapping with his baton, Sousa gave a signal, and immediately his band began playing, "Oh, dear, what can the matter be ?" A tiny ripple of laughter that went round the audience showed that confidence had partially been restored. When the band began to plarWait till the clouds "roll by,' the laughter deepened into a roar of merriment that only ended when the lights were turned on again.
THE DUAL PURPOSE COW. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 November 1916
THE DUAL PURPOSE COW. ? The strongest evidence of thcu« fulness of pure bred animals is lh unparalleled results that their i„tr C duction has proved in both beef and dairy herds.

BREAKING AND TRAINING COLTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 November 1916
BREAKING AND TRAINING COLTS. * The erroneous idea that-: cruelty in horse breaking and training is neces sary is practically a thing of the past. Well directed patience lias been found to give belter results than in considerate application of the per suader. However, all horses are not to be treated alike, A high-strung, sensitive horse must be handled very gently, tin* dullard treated sharply. The first thing in treating a horse is to get his attention : second, make him understand what is wanted. The education of the hofse is based on reward and punishment, and each should immediately follow the act. The advantage of breaking a horse when he is young, before he has de veloped a strong independent in stinct is easily seen. The general plan is to break the colt to being led and handled before it is weaned, and to break to harness between the ages of two and three years. Colts should not do heavy work until they are four years old, and should be accustomed to it gradually. The fol lo...

UPSET HER VANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 24 November 1916
UPSET HER VANITY, I It all "originated at a small gro cery store where they sold every ! thing', from s:;ukI to a pearl neck lace. A farmer had gone for some liniment to rub on his cow's t bad leg.
