SUNKEN SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 2 January 1915

SUNKEN SHIPS. I A direr of great experience in con , nection with wrecked ships made the | remarkable statement that the wood 1 en vessels survive a great deal longer than iron or steel ones. j Wooden ships have been dug out of , the sand after having been sunk for centuries. Iron and steel ships can not, however, resist for such a long i period the action of salt water. When j such a ship sinks it. descends with ! great rapidity, and its collision with i the bottom may go far to break it j up. | Vegetation settles on its wooden j parts, and^ the barnacles and other j parasites themselves set up chemical ; changes. Every scratch on the paint | of the metal work is an opening for I corrosion. Soon the paint scales off, j and in a few years there is nothing ; but a mass, of rust to mark the rest j ing-place of the vessel. . I I There is a record of a Chinese State banquet lasting seventeen hours. One o! the oldest Royal hobbies is that followed by Queen Maud, who for years has made iv...

A CONQUEROR'S COFFIN. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 2 January 1915

A CONQUEROR'S COFFIN. t The battle of the Nile, in which Nelson defeated and almost destroyed . the French fleet oS Aboukir, on Au-_ gust 1, 1799, first revealed to Europe the full extent of the daring genius of our foremost admiral, "the greatest seaman since the world began." AI j though Fortune denied to Nelson his • flarling wish of "meeting Bonaparte on a wind," at least he caught his fleet at anchor, and by his victory sealed up the best French general j with a picked army on a scene re mote from the real theatre of war. Throughout the night *tb.e battle raged, from 6 p.m. until noon, when Villeneuve escaped with four ships, the poor remnant of thirteen. The others were captured or burned, in cluding the French flagship L'Orient, which caught fire and blew up half way through the battle. The victory raised Italy against the French—and Nelson to the peerage. And not only did it gain him a coronet, it also i gave him a coffin. For one of his | captains, Hallowell, wishing, perha...

DON:T HISK YOUli LIFE. Don't rink your life or take chances when you have a cold. Neglected colds often result in pneumoniaand consumption.
