Grow Willows. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

Grow Willows. There are. no fewer than one hun- j dred and sixty recognised species of the willow family. There are fifteen well-defined species in Great- Britain and Ireland alone ! The dwarf species creeps over the' bleak, low mountains and hills, and a couple of inches is the greatest height to which it rears itself. The better sort of willows are' of much economic account. And yet, | except in the osier trade—for making baskets—one hardly ever hears wil lows mentioned in the usual talk of trade. The "blue" variety of willow is the most valuable—chiefly used for cric ket bats. No other wood can take its place in this regard. The seams in the bark of the blue willow are straight and close together. Eleven willows, which were put on I the market in Herefordshire, realised j thirteen shillings per cubic foot, or i £81 for the whole. They were four I teen years of age. j A parcel of land was bought in i 1889 for £50, and planted with wil | lows. The willows realised, in 1905, £2,000....

RUSSIA'S GREAT SECRET. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

I RUSSIA'S GREAT SECRET. I *—:—-• j Russia has at least ten million men j —some authorities place the number i as high as twenty millions—consti I tuting first-class fighting material,. j still to be drawn upon in case of necessity. I This is Russia's great- secret, and i the very thought of it sends cold j shivers down the back of the Prus j sian War Lords. They see that in a ■ long war Russia is having time to ^ j throw the whole weight of her man- j I hood resources into the scale. J j Germany declared war on Russia in j i August, 1914, because she was afraid , ' that if she waited two years longer j ' Russia would have completely recov- j ! ered from the heavy losses she sus tained in the Russo-Japanese War of j ' 1904-5, in the bringing about of which ' j German intrigue played a great part, j We know how Russia disappointed ' all the expectations of the German ' War Staff by having several of her I armies ready within a fortnight of the declaration of war.

'BOLD ADVERTISEMENT. SOME EXAMPLES—AMAZING, AMUSING. AND TRAGIC. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

'BOLD ADVERTISEMENT.' j ' « SOME EXAMPLES—AMAZING, AMUSING. AND TRAGIC. - Although, in boldness and ingen uity, ■ the British advertiser must yield the palm to his brother across ,: the Atlantic, he has a few feats to v • hi8 credit of which he has every right to be proud. When, for exam ple, the famous old battleship, the Foudroyant, was wrecked a few years ago off the . coast of Lancashire, her owner, Mr. Whcatley Cobb, and his crew left her for the night to recupe T rate on shore after many hours of ex "posure and fatigue. On returning to their Btranded vessel the next morn ing, they were horrified to see the words " 's Pills" painted in enor mous letters on the venerable hull ; . : " and, although the unlicensed legend •1; f wae promptly removed, a photograph had already been taken, and the ship which had so long "braved the bat tle and the breeze" will go down to posterity associated with " 's Pills at 1/li a box."

Pitcairn Island. WHERE EVERYONE IS HAPPY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 December 1916

Pitcairn Island. I WHERE EVERYONE IS HAPPY. In a little cove of Southampton j ! Water, almost tropical under the hot , t eun, I talked with the Pitcairn Islan- | I dcrs, who had been received by the ! j King and Queen at Buckingham Pal- , ace (says a correspondent of the j "Daily Chronicle.") They have come ! j from one of the furthest outposts of j the Empire—so remote that it had , scarcely heard of the war until the : yacht Mana, with Mr. and Mrs. j ' Scoresby Roulledge on board, anchor- : ; ed off this lonely spot in the South _ l Pacific. j J The Mana, bearing the honourable . ! scars of a long and adventurous'voy- | age, lay just off the shore. Edwin . Young, the junior of the two Pit-; cairn youths who had made the voy- i age to England with the Routledges, : waxed enthusiastic about her sailing j qualities. A wonderful boat, one! gathered, on which they had lived happily during the last eleven , months. The Youngs are lithe, active young . fellows—Charles the elder, over six...

THE FARM AND DAIRY. ? CAUSES OF IlOXE CHEWING AND SIMILAR ABNORMAL CRAVINGS IX CATTLE. From time to time enquiries are received regarding certain abnormal cravings of cattle evidenced by the chewing and swallowing of such ma terial as wood, earth, • cloth, old sacks, leather, bones, etc. While with the herds at' the Central Ex perimental Farm at Ottawa, no such abnormality has ever been noted, more or le.ss information concerning it. has come to hand, a brief sum mary of which follows. The craving" of animals for unnatu ral material may be simply classified as to c&ui»e, as follows-:— (1) The phenomena may appear' during the early spring months when cattle have access to organic and i mineral suhstaiuv-s. -Where . an'mals | are wintered on a poor maintenance i ration composed largely of hay and straw, the necessary mineral consti tuents may fall short of the animal's requirements : particularly if but t little succulent feed is The lack of salt during the winter months will ...

EXPERIMENTS WITH CANNED CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 December 1916

EXPERIMENTS WITH CANNED CHEESE. ; That there are advantages in having Chcildar-process chccsc put up iu air tight tins instead of the usual way, is" claimed by the United States De partment of Agriculture as (he out come; of a long series of tests. This method, in the opinion of specialists 'seems to meet the needs of handlers i who have been trying' to devise some :''individual package for this kind of ! cheese, or a method of handling that would eliminate' cutting and waste ' between the factory .nnd the consu mer. As a result of experiments it was found that it was commercially [practicable to press the cheese into lioops of .small diameter, cut it into pieces 'of desired weight, and sell it ; in air-tight tin cans. This provides -a'sanitary package which keeps ill : ch'eosc from exposure to air or con tamination, nnd prevents loss of weight by evaporation, In addition to these advantages there is no rind —which, of course, is always a loss.
