Marvellous Swordsmanship. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 December 1916
! Marvellous Swordsman* ship. I Indian swordsmen are acknowledged i to be unrivalled. An extraordinary performer, %vho was a sergeant in one of the native regiments, is thus spo ken of in Colonel Barras's book, ''India and Tiger Hunting": "He was j a fine-looking fellow, in the prime of I life, and, notwithstanding the fright- • j fully critical nature of what he was ! going to 'do, he moved about with 1 perfect ease arid calmness. In one hand he held a very long double edged sword", sharp at the point and with edges like - razors. With the other hand he held his little son, a child aged ab.out six years, who was also clea'rly acustomed to what was about to follow. "From the little fellow's evident enjoyment of the scene it; was plain -that failure on the.'part of his. father was quite beyond the limits of his imagination.

LAZY BRUTE! [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 December 1916
LAZY BRUTE ! Marmaduke Buskin, the fallen star actor, was touring as _property-man with a thrilling melodrama. Throughout the evening he would stand in the wings, and there he would make the thunder, lightning, and.rain, gallop like a horse, shriek like a woman, wail like a baby, howl like a mob, and hoot like a motor car. And all for one-pound-one per week. On the Saturday night the play was going merrily to a "packed house. Marmaduke was letting off shrieks of terror, thundering with one hand, working the hailstorm with the other while with his right leg he worked the wailing wind and with his left reproduced the crash of falling trees, Then the leading man, who was be ing pursued by invisible bloodhounds, stuck his head round and roared at Marmie : "Bark, you fool—bark ! Why don't you attend to your job, yon lasy shirker ?"
Curious Results of Lightning Flashes. LIGHTNING AS PHOTOGRAPHER AND CONJURER. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 December 1916
Curious Results of Light ning Flashes. ♦ LIGHTNING AS PHOTOGRAPHER -AND CONJURER. Although a f^w heavy thunder storms which take no toll of human life occur, the deathroll here is very email indeed, and would be even smaller if people would learn not to shelter beneath trees. Even if they cannot resist the temptation to shelter they should be careful what trees they choose, as the . oak, the poplar, and the pear appear to be the most dangerous, and beech the safest, although no one can reck on to be safe under any variety. A set of figure? taken over twenty four years shows that the annual '[■average loss of life by lightning stroke in England amounts to just over 18, but the death-rate per ten million is only 1.3 in London to the 18 in the North Midlands. People afraid of thunderstorms should there for have little fear in a crowded .city, although it has on an average more thunderstorms than some large, towns. .' But even if you are struck it by no means follows that you-are killed...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 December 1916
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. A little methylated spirit added to j the rinsing water will make vrhite-j silk look equal to new. I A siphon" of soda-water should be always kept in the nursery, as it is ; a good fire-extinguisher. J For sealing bottles of fruit or pic- j kles an excellent wax is obtained by j melting together equal parts of resin j and beef-suet. ' j To revive a faded carpet, sweep | thoroughly, then wipe with a clean I cloth that has been soaked in a weak solution of ammonia and water, and well wrung. Blacklead mixed with turpentine instead of water gives a more bril liant and lasting polish, and pre vents the. stove from rusting no mat ter how damp the weather. When buying nutmegs choose small ones ; they have a better flavour than larger nuts. To test a nutmeg, prick with a needle. If good the oil will instantly, spread round the punc ture. Most housewives boil their milk he fore use during the Bummer months^ and some burn it, too. The latter annoyance will never occur if a li...

KNEW SOMETHING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 December 1916
KNEW SOMETHING. Some time ago one of the! masters at a certain grammar school caused a sensation by publishing a book which bore a striking resemblance to one published previously by a well known minor poet. Comments upon t.he matter became of an accusatory nature, and culminated in one of the pupils openly accusing the author one day in the common room of plagiar ism. "Sir," replied the indignant author "your opinion is neither sought nor valued—you're an ass." "I may be," calmly retorted the scholar, "but—the ass knoweth his master's crib !"
