SILSNCE FOLLOWED. At a well-known music nail a party of wounded soldiers were seated in tbe stalls.

At once one of the men rooe from his seat, faced the ladies, and, with a low bow, replied : "No, madam ; we all fell of! a motor-bus !"

NOTHING SERIOUS. SLIGHTLY ALTERED. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916

NOTHING SERIOUS. $ SLIGHTLY ALTERED. All round the little country school lay pleasant signs of early Bnmmc.r. The lambs frolicked in the fields, along with the goats, and the flowers bloomed bravely. But, inside, the listless scholars were having knowledge drummed into them. "Willie Smith," said the teacher, "conjugate the verb 'to go.' " Willie's body was in the school, but his thoughts were out on the sunny hills. However, he began, in a mechanical voice : "I go, thou—goest " "Yes," said the teacher, in an en couraging voice. "What comes next?' Willie's eyes travelled to the view of the pleasant fields beyond the schoolroom window, and inspiration came to him. "He-goat and she-goat ■" he fin ished triumphantly.

German Trade Tricks. AS ARTFUL IN BUSINESS AS IN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916

German Trade Tricks. AS ARTFUL IN BUSINESS AS IN WAR. How necessary it is that we should be on our guard against the wiliness, trickery, and unscrupulousness of the Germans in regard to trade matters ife illustrated by the fact that even ( at1 the present time many thousands of pounds' worth of goods are reach ing England every week which are "made in Germany," and which are being sold, the proceeds rf which go to support the people who are seek ing our ruin and destruction. The German method is quite sim ple. All sorts of trade-marks of pro priety and valuable goods and com modities manufactured by commercial houses of high repute in neutral and ' allied countries are counterfeited. The goods are made in Germany, but bear' English and other marks, and are then disposed of through neutral countries. Fancy leather goods, dyes, crockery, gloves, etc., are stamped as being made in a neutral or allied country, and either go direct to Eng land from neutral European countries to which the...

The First Bomb. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916

The First Bomb. The bomb, once looked upon chiefly as a symbol of anarchy, has come into such general use as a destruc- i tive agent during the present war that it is interesting to note itB ori gin. It came into being during tho troublous times in France towardB the close of the eighteenth century. Its inventor was a French fanatic named Chevalier, who had conceived such an intense hatred of Napoleon that he determined to kill him. ! Being employed at a Government small arms factory, he had gained some knowledge of explosives, and with this knowledge he maDaged to construct a bomb out of a barrel which he filled with a mixture of powder, bullets, broken glass, and white arsenic. Chevalier's idea was for the bomb to explode under Napoleon's carriage as it passed through the streets of Paris. A miscalculation, however, caused it to go off a few seconds too soon. Had Chevalier succeeded in hie ob ject the whole history of Europe would, of course, have been changed.

The Ragtime Cure. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916

The Ragtime Cure. —— The effects of mneic upon the health —well known ever since David harped to Saul, but . hitherto little under stood—are being looked into mire deeply by physicians. No matter to what extent music may restore a per son to tlie normal, there can be no question that it may help other in fluences to incline the person from the normal. There are many compo sitions, notably among those by Chopin, which are the outcome of more or less melancholy moods, and while they are beautiful and harmless to the healthy, when made a steady diet and source of self-consolation by those suffering from depression from mental or bodily causes their effects are undoubtedly pernicious, just as a too exclusive diet of olives or merin gues would depress the general bodily condition and mental atmosphere of a person so indulging a sickly appe tite. , On . the other hand, ragtime music, ; being in no wise serious, is the re verse of depressing. j Roughly speaking, lively music, J such as rag...

Eating a Church. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916

Eating a Church. The lot of an Eskimo dog is a hard one. In the first place, he has to earn his living by drawing sledges. In the next place, food is so scarce that a dog is usually hungry, often hungry enough to eat his harness, or, indeed, any bits of skin and leather he can find. To prevent this the men rub the leather cords with tar. But in order to live at all an Eskimo dog has to fight his way. Whenever there is a pack of dogs together they fight. The weak ones arc driven away or killed. The strongest and fiercest one, who can thrash any or all of the others, is known as the king dog. He has the best place to lie, and bis choice of the food. A single growl from him is like a growl from an emperor whom all are ready to obey. Of all the' things that can befall a church, nothing could be much stran ger than the destruction of a little house of worship north of Hudson Bay. The Eskimos had' built a church, with whales' ribs for rafters and covered it with walrus hide. The little ch...

KITCHEN WRINKLES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916

KITCHEN WRINKLES. • A few drops of paraffin added to boot polish will enable you to give quite a good shine to damp boots. Apple and raspberry, equal parts, is a delicious jam mixture, and three quarters of a pound of sugar to a pound of fruit makes it quite sweet enough. Casement curtains will hang more evenly and without sagging if they are threaded on thin wire, attached to the window-frame by hooks screw ed firmly into the woodwork. For cleaning nickel furnishings and ornaments use a mixture containing equal parts of ammonia and whiten ing. Apply it to the nickel with a cloth, and quite a good lustre will result. To prevent cheese from getting 'hard cover the cut surface with a thin film of butter and then cover with a clean cloth. Keep in a cool place, and the cheese will remain in good condition for some time. Before washing new lace curtains, calico, or anything containing lime, soak overnight in water to which a penny packet of salt has been added. This takes out- all the li...

British Orders for Women. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916

British Orders for Women. [ There are several British Orders and decorations which, though not exclusive to women, may yet be won by them upon - occasion. For exam ple, the greatly-coveted Order of Merit has been conferred upon one woman—Miss Florence Nightingale. The rarely-awarded Lloyd's Medal for saving life at sea has also been con ferred upon one woman, Miss Kate Gilmour, for heroism in connection with the burning of the passenger steamer Sardinia, in 1908, -off Malta— a unique honour. The Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem in England is a decoration that can be worn by wo men in any position of life. In 'prac tice, however, it is almost wholly awarded to nurses, or women inter ested in nursing. It is a small Mal tese cross, enamelled white, bearing the words, "For Service in the Cause of Humanity," and it is worn sus pended from a black ribbon of water ed silk. The wearers of the decora tion, no matter which class they be long to, have reason to be proud of it, fo...
