BIG BATTLE BLUFFS. CLEVER RUSES TO DECEIVE ENEMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916
BIG BATTLE BLUFFS. CLEVER RUSES TO DECEIVE ENEMIES. The sccret evacuation of Suvla and Anzac by the English army of occu pation under the very noaes of the Turks—"the biggest bluff in war's history," aB it has not inaptly been termed—bears a close resemblance to the similar abandonment of the Re dan by the Russians during the Cri mean War. For months the heavy gun6 of the French and British had been pound ing unavailingly at this exceedingly strong fortress. Twice they had tried to storm it, only to be repuls ed with great slaughter. A third at tack had been ordered to take place on September 18th, but on the early morning of that date, before day break, Corporal. Ross, of the Royal British' Engineers, who was in charge of one of the advanced saps, noticing that the place was strangely still, crept forward to investigate. He found the works, untenanted, save by dead men and a few badly woihidcd, and hastened back to re port to the British commander, who at first was frankly incredul...
Crowns on the Battlefield. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916
Crowns on the Battlefield.! Monarchs no longer ride forth J crowned to"battle, as did our King Richard III. to his last fatal fight on j Bos worth Field. • Nevertheless, even "to-day crowns figure in the spectacular side of war 1 more than is commonly supposed. I The King of Italy, for instance, car fries his crown with him wherever he j goes, and frequently dons it when he J reviews his troops on ceremonial J |parades. This is in accordance with the cus tom and tradition of his House, j The crown is supposed to render its j wearer immune from jiann, because inclosed within ' the goftPfs a tiny circlet of iron, said to have been j made from a nail out of the true ' Cross. , The aged King Peter of Serbia, again, has twice during the present war appeared robed and crowned be fore his armies on the battlefield, when addressing them in those splen did speeches that have done so much to stimulate and encourage them in i their heroic resistance to the foreign | invaders.

MIKADO A WRESTLER. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916
MIKADO A WRESTLER. The Mikado of Japan is a.thorough soldier, and has a wonderful know ledge of military tactics and history, j When he was quite a boy he was in duced by his father, the late Emper or, to take a keen interest in the principles of national defence. He was taught wrestling and was made to try his prowess with young men in the humblest walks of life. On one occasion he was present with his father at a big wrestling, tournament and took part in many of the matches. He threw all of his opponents until there stepped into the ring a young farmer's son "of such a burly build that it was evi dent that the future Mikado would have a very rough time of it. How ever, he went manfully to work, but was decisively beaten, and had to confess that the farmer's son was victor. After the match the late Emperor | sent for the umpire, and, pointing to the farmer's son, who wa6 feeling rather uncomfortable at having beat en hiB future sovereign, he said : "I wish to speak with that young...
THE ROAD TO "BLIGHTY." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916
THE ROAD TO "BLIGHTY.'* 4 BY A MEMBER OF„THE "TELEGRAPH." We knew for weeks before the Big Push began that it was coming off. We had spent a week near a pretty little town well behind the firing line. Those were very pleasant day6, play ing at- war, knee deep in the long Jneh grass, moving up and down the sunlit fields like rows of chess board figures. We enjoyed the fun, though wc knew that when it came to the real thing it would be a serious busi ness. Then, the training over, we went back to our billets on the fringe of the firing line. When we were not in the trenches as a battalion we were out on working parties, periuips digging or repairing trenches, or more probably carrying ammunition or rations forward to the firing line. And then came the eve of the great day. It was a quiet day in - camp. Everything was ready. In the morning a famous General made , a short speech to the troops. His words were plain and unmistakable. He told us what we would have to do. And he told us tha...
A MOVING SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916
A MOVING SCENE. ' It was a small theatre in a small town. The piece opened with a vil lage scene, at the conclusion of which the scene shifter was puzzled how to let down a front cloth, as a cottage on the stage obstructed the descent. But the leading gentleman came to the rescue, and waiking boldly on, exclaimed— "It's a stormy night, and my poor hunVble cottage is sadly dilapidated; I must e'en take it in and repair it." Suiting the action to the word, he walked off with the offending cottage. "Look, mother," said little Bobby, proudly exhibiting a hatful of mar bles, "I won all these from Willie Smith." "Why, Bobby," exclaimed his mo ther, "don't you know it's wicked to play marbles, for keeps ? Go right over to Willie's house and give him back every one of his marbles." "Yes, mother," said the boy, obe diently. "And shall I take that vase you won at Mrs. Smith's whist party and give it back to her ?"

A DOUBLE "CATCH." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 December 1916
A DOUBLE '"CATCH." Although the notice plainly stated that fishing was prohibited there, the angler sat placidly dangling hie line over the stream. The irate keeper, who approached him, was surprised to see that the line was baited with a potato. In an amused voice he asked the intru der what he was doing. "Fishing," was the reply. "You see, my health has be?n upset by financial worries, and I came down here to sec if fresh air would help me." Thinking that perhaps the poor chap was mentally afflicted, the keep er went away without denouncing him.
