WHY HE DID IT. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

WHY HE DID IT. I Suddenly a white form appeared at | the window. All about leaped the ! mad flames. A portion of the wall ' had caved in, and it was too hot for | the firemen to go up after the man, f anyway. But, see! a ncble hero dashes under the ropes, makes his way to the elevator, and shouts up to the seventy-seventh floor, where the lonely form is still standing. Within about eight and a half min utes he comes tearing out of the building with the life he had saved besides his own. Just then the en tire building and the man who held the mortgage on it collapsed. About seventy-five thousand people rushed over to see the hero—the man who, at the risk of his own life and without the aid of a brass band, went to the. rescue of one lone inan. " 'Twas indeed noble of you," the people cried as the firemen carried the rcscued one of! on a stretcher. "Why did you do it ?" "Well," said the hero, "I had to. He owes me two shillings." The following unique ep'stle was picked up lately in th...

WOULDN'T BRING AN ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

WOULDN'T BRING AN ACTION. | There is a story told of a very i eminent advocate, now no lonerer I with us,_ who once, while endeavour J ing to dissuade a friend from going ■.to law, was asked what he would | himself consider a sufficient ground i for resorting to litigation, j "My dear fellow," he replied, "I | do not say that in no conceivable | circumstances would I take proceed j ings against anyone, but I do say j that if at this.moment you deliber j ately upset my ink on the tablecloth, ! chucked my wife out of the window, j threw that volume of reports at the ! burst of Blackstone, 'made hay' with I my furniture, and finally tweaked niv I nose, I should no doubt use my best ! endeavours to kick you downstairs; | but, once rid of you, either by force or persuasion, no power on earth .should induce me to bring an action jagainst you."

PREFERRED THE PEACOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

j PREFERRED THE PEACOCK. i The first woman ever to run a sew ! ing machine—Miss Elizabeth Kilbourn | of Winsted, Conn.—has just died at j .the age of eighty-six. j Miss Kilborn was a friend of Klias iHowe, the inventor of Howe's sew i ing-machine.

Bullets in the Brain. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

Bullets in the Brain. . Several months ago a Belgian was struck by a dart dropped from a German aeroplane. It went right through his head vertically and be tween the two sides of his jew, com- ! ing out under the chin. It was a clean cut. The man was treated in a London hospital and recovered. He is in London to-day perfectly well, and has had no symptoms ex cept once a slight fit. Another instance of marvellous re- j covery was that of a youth who was j shot through the frontal lobe. Lon- j don surgeons took away the whole of j the bone of his forehead and a large ! piece of his brain. He made an im- j mediate recovery. A medical student | received a shell wound in the frontal j lobe. He spent six months in various \ hospitals and made no progress. They j told him he would heal up. He went to London, and it was found there was a chunk of shell in his brain. This was removed and he is now get ting better.

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

KITCHEN WRINKLES. Wash a potato, wipe dry, and put it in your bread-pan. It will keep the bread fresh for days. Salt placed under baking-tins in an oven prevents their burning. Salt will quickly clean a discolour ed bath or enamelled utensils. Vinegar—a teacupful—in a warm bath, will take away all Btiflness af ter cycling, etc. Vinegar will make a new gas mantle last much longer, Soak five minutes, dry, and burn off. If eggs you are about to boil are cracked, add a little vinegar to the water, and they can he boiled as sat isfactorily as undamaged ones. Take great care of the milk ; unless you have a very cool place to keep it, boil it as soon as it arrives. Keep it covered with a clean muslin cloth. When cooking greens boil a piecc of parsley in with them. This prevents any disagreeable smell. When soaking a cauliflower don't add salt to the water. It kills the insects, and they are deft in the vege table. To remove fruit-satina from linen, stretch the fabric over the mouth of a ba...

Self-healing Trees. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

Self-healing .Trees. When a bullet or any foreign body penetrates a tree not sufficiently to kill it, the wound cicatrizes almost in exactly the mrk way as a wound on the human body heals.' If it did j not, destructive microbes would enter I and cause decay of the tissues. •' Trees are very well equipped for ; healing their wounds, and, more for [ turiate than we, an antiseptic dress ing is almost automatically applied. As soon as the lesion has taken place the vegetable reacts to! the wounded spot ; its breathing at this point is quickened and at the same time protein matter* are rushed to tbe scene. Many plants are provided with se creting canals filled with more or lees gummy substances which are instant ly poured over the wounded surface and protect it. This is true especial i ly of the conifers—pines, £rs, etc.— ( of which the resin makes a swift and impermeable antiseptic dressing. In trees that have little or no resin the wounded part turns brown, j This is due to the appeara...

Famous Cripples. WHOSE FAME HAS TRAVELLED ALL OVER THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

Famous Cripples. WHOSE FAME HAS TRAVELLED ALL OVER THE WORLD. Lord Byron had a club foot and ! was acutely conscious of the fact to • his last day. Yet he was a fine t boxer, having taken lessons from one i of the famous "bruisers" of his time; jhe was also a splendid dancer, and, as everybody knows, he swam the j Hellespont, the Dardanelles, in emu , lation of one of his Greek heroes, | Leander. Sir Walter Scott was also a crip plc, yet in spite of his disability was a most active man. One night in early boyhood he was chased round the room by his mother, who wiBhed j to pack him off to bod. In the morn- , i ing he was affected with fever, and i after three days it was found that, he had lost the use of his right leg. I He never wholly recovered the use of ' this limb and always walked lame, with a heavy step. Yet he was very | active as he grew up, fighting and i climbing with the other boys. It is ; probable that his early affliction, ' however, had much to do with the special di...
