Alcohol or Food. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 28 November 1916

| Alcohol or Food. The Germans, in common with other protagonists, have severely cur tailed the consumption of alcohol. Indeed, at the moment a determined agitation against the manufacture of alcoholic liquors is assuming formid able proportions, the matter being considered not as affecting the moral of the fightingmen, but in the in terests of feeding the people. Ac cording to the investigations which have been conducted by eminent sci entists, as much beer is'being con sumed in the Teuton Empire every day as would supply sufficient grain to feed eleven million men. From I the economic point of view the coun try is suffering a los6 of one-seven teentb its food supply through grain being turned into spirituous liquors. These authorities point out that to make a pint of beer the equivalent lof one-half of the present daily allow ance of flour to the civilian popula tion is used in the form of barley, and that the flour which is thus wasted would be sufficient to make five and a quart...

Then JSthel proved that in spite' ol her sex, she had the makings ot,a very successful diplomatist in her. "I think," she remarked to her companion, with a sweet amile, 'that if one of us got off this bench I'd have more room."

The Force of Rising Sap. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 28 November 1916

The Force of Rising Sap. • —.—— Even now the causes which under lie the great upward flow of sap in the spring are not completely under stood. That the movement is accom panied by considerable force has been demonstrated in a remarkable man ner. In the spring season when the sap is rising with great' vigour, the stem of a grape vine was cut right across. With as little loss of time as possible a piece of bladder was tied over the surface of the wounded part.. As fixed the bladder was in a state of collapse, but it did not remain in this condition- long. Within half an hour it was obvious that it contain-, ed a good deal of liquid. As time went on, the amount of fluid matter increased so much that the bladder was quite full. Two hours after fix ing, the bladder was so diBtended that it was lifted right up. An hour later the pressure had increased to such a' degree that the bladder burst, being unable to stand the strain any longer. In this connection it is interesting (says S. Leonar...

Horizontal Rainbows. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 28 November 1916

Horizontal Rainbows. — ▼ "When," asks the ."Scientific Amer ican," "is a rainbow not a rain bow ?" One answer might be : 'When it is not produced by drops of rain.' On this basis the white rainbow would be excluded, bccause it is pro duced by' fog, and the horizontal rainbow would also be-excluded, be cause it is generated by droplets of water spread out in a horizontal sheet and not falling through the air. During the past ten years many such bows have been seen on the sur face of Lake Mendota at Madison, Wis, and Mr. Chanccy Juday who describes them in the "Monthly Wea ther Review" presents a history of previous observations of the same phenomenon in various parts of the world. As seen at Madison the bow, when complete, assumes the form of a parabola, the apex of which coin cides with the position of the ob server. The outer extremities of the bow—often the only parts visible consist of bright spots of spectral colours, sometimes repeated once or twice, as in the case of the super...

"Are you aware, sir," shouted the justice, drawing a similar one from his pocket, "that there are others like it ?" "Indeed, I am," replied the ques tioned one, still more placidly.

SETTING THE LIMIT. With a sentimental leaning towards the days of his own youth, a certain business man sent his son to the col lege where he had himself been edu cated. On arriving at the place of much knowledge, the young man began to make a few inquiries : "I should like to see my father's record,u said he to the head of the collcge. "He was here in 1875." "I shall be very pleased to sho^ you the record," was the reply. "But have you any special reason for con sulting it ?" "Well," replied the youth frankly, "when I left home dad told me not to disgracc -his record, and I only want to see how far I can go."

Tommy's Humour in the Trenches. THE LIGHTER SIDE OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 28 November 1916

Tommy's Humour in the Trenches. r. the lighter side of the r kiwar. The gay, gallant, irrepressible light headedness of the British soldier, even when he has h$d to "carry on" under conditions that might well have given cause for unlimited dis . guet and depression, or when exposed to the most blighting fire of the ene my, has unquestionably been, and still continues to be, one of the finest and most outstanding features of the great war. Tommy does not lay himself out to :-,;be a funny man, but the gods have • ' 'been extremely generous to him when dealing out the saving grace of hu mour—unconscious humour, much of it generally is, breaking p.ut with a \ _?gaiety and spontaneity which refuses ' . to be depressed, aye, even when grim gre^y death itself lurks in ,the shadow. Life in trench town • is indeed a queer admixture of grimness and gaiety, death, and comedy. This is well illustrated by the story, of the Tommy in the trenches who had a comrade'killed on either side of'him (by ...

At dusk the crew descried in the distance a lumi nous warship which tilled them with awe. It came towards them at a ter rific speed. "As it drew nearer," said one of the men, "we saw -the boat was red-hot. It was heading for us, and it was only by a splen did fete of seamanship that our cap tain was able to avert disaster. We could not see a soul aboard -the-fiery vessel," added the blue-jacket ; and he was supported in this by his com panions, one of whom chipped in with the observation that "it seem ed impossible for anyone to live in such a place. It was an extremely uncanny spectacle," this sailor con tinued, "and one I shall never for get, even though I live to be a thou sand years old. It sKot past us. We watched it disappear in the distance, I but what became of it we do not j know."
