WIFE WAS ARTFUL. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917
WIFE WAS ARTFUL. A good story is that about a mail i who one day told his wife he would j l»r oil tbo oilrci- pleCWS Stle i found in his purse or pockets which j were coined in the year she was born, j As a result the lady in due course c>f time had quite an amount of sil ver on hand—so much, in fact, that she went to the bank and deposited it in her name. Then, speaking to the cashier, the lady said , "Mt husband tells me you are go ing to pay him some money to-day. j Won't you, please pay him in this silver I have just deposited ? I will be so much obliged if you will." Of course, the cashier, being noted for his courtesy to the ladies, quick ly replied that he would be happy to please her. As a result the lady has still more birthday money. "Good evening," Baid thirsty Fin negan, looking in at Flanagan's door, "What- d'ye want?" asked Flana gan, who was weary of appeasing Finnegan's thirst. "Nothing," replied Finuegan. . "Well, ye'll find it in the bottle where the whisky was....

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917
HOUSEHOLD HINTS. If milk used for bread and butter | pudding is first boiled instead of be ing used cold, and poured over the sugared slices, when cooked, the mix ture will adhere as if an egg had been used. A Substitute for Suet.—Get a pound of butcher's fat trimmings, put it into the oven to melt, and pour off the fat as it melts. When cold, chop and use as shredded suet. This will keep good for weeks, and ! lesf? is needed for cooking than when suet is used. i i Before using lemons, scrub them j thoroughly, then grate off the yellow J rind. Mix with an equal quantity of : sugar, and keep in airtight tin. The j grated rind can be used for flavouring j cakes, custards, and anything for ; which lemon extract would be used. | This is economical, and the flavour is j much more delicate. j Rings can be cleaned in a^. hot lath- i er of Castile soap, ammonia, and ; water, using a brush to get under the stones or in the chasing.

The Mackerel "Hunt." A CONTRIBUTOR ON HOLIDAY DESCRIBES AN EXCITING HOUR OR TWO. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917
The Mackerel "Hunt." A CONTRIBUTOR ON HOLIDAY DESCRIBES AN EXCITING HOUR OR TWO. Mauve and silver, they lie in for mal rows on the fishmonger's slab ; but the housewife, who carefully se lects a few, little dreams what craft and weariness have been expended to secure her that palatable dish of mackerel. On the Cornish coasts, when the mackerel season is in full swing the lure of the Ashing is bo great that j the lads will even come tumbling out of the local picture show when the shoals are sighted. This excitement is due to the fact and thie is the best of mackerel fishing—that the whole town or ham let may indulge in the fun from the sea-shore ; generally the inhabitants derive as much enjoyment from it as the average Northerner does in fol lowing the vicissitudes of a crack football match. Another curious factor in mackerel fishing is that the most important member of the crew is left ashore. This is the procedure, supremely puz zling to the uninitiated at first : Two rowing-hoate...
When You Fall Far. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917
When You Fall Far. •It is quite a mistake to think that when a person falls from a great height his heart stops . before his body touches the ground. Breathing may be suspended for a few minutes, but if artificial respiration is applied at once, life can be restored in many caBes. This was proved in America, when a girl fell a distance of 200ft., with no more serious result than some fractured bones and a few in ternal injuries. She compares her j sensations while falling to the faint- j ness one feels when travelling down- j wards in a jerky lift. It was only in the moment of landing that she lost ' consciousness. Doctors assert that such accidents would not often prove 1 fatal if artificial respiration were more generally tried. Just because j the patient's pulse is not beating it j is a- fatal error to think he must i therefore be dead. Treat him as you would a man rescued from drowning, and in nine cases out of ten you "will save his life.

"Have you ever noticed," said the j nervous young:man, striving to make j conversation at-.the tea-table, "that | —er—bachelors, as a rule, are—-er—• much richer than married men?" j "Yes," replied the masculine-look- j ing lady, wearing the colours of "the j | militants ; "I have." ! "Ah ! And—er—how do you ac count for it?" "Very simply. Poor* men marry, and rich'.men don't. Men are alwaya readier to divide nothing with a wo man than something !" Many, people have earned a repu tation for cleverness by being merely pn,art enough not -to attempt the IWses they know they can't do.
INTERESTING ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917
I INTERESTING ITEMS, j i 'l Smoked whale is much in request for the table in Germany. Its flavour I i&lt;» much esteemed, and the price 2/6 j a pound, puts it in the. reach of many who cannot afford to buy beef. I An aeroplane, while flying, camc in contact with a flock of pigeons at Harborne. The propeller was broken and the machine forced to descend close to the .main road. Neither the airman nor observer was hurt. The streets of London are busieBt with pedestrains, .on an average, be tween six and seven o'clock in the evening, when thousands of workers are homeward bound. The total earn ing capacity of London's workers is estimated at nearly £180,000,000. A small candle shot from a Lee Metford rifle would pass clean through an . iron plate one-sixteenth of an inch thick, and beyond a doubt it would kill a man almost as, c§r-, tainly as a-bullet, if fired at;;a";&lt;vital; part. 'If fired at the body. iWwouw probably pass right through him. j . It is not easy to sa...
Flowers in Ten Minutes. A CURIOUS GARDEN TRICK EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917
Flowers in Ten Minutes. • A CURIOUS GARDEN TRICK EX PLAINED. A few years ago some of the lead ing English horticulturists were very much perplexed by certain experi ments conducted by a French exhibi tor. The demonstrations were con ducted in a very open manner, every one was allowed to examine freely, and it. was agreed that there was nothing of the ordinary conjuring trick about the plan. i _ This is what the observers saw. A plant, perhaps a geranium or a rose bush, was brought forward in a large deep box of soil. Sometimes the plant was just growing in the open border. Although the specimen was full of buds, there was no ex panded blooms to be seen. The demonstrator informed the onlookers t that in about ten minutes he would I have the plant covered with widely opened flowers. The procedure start ed with the watering of the soil over the roots. As soon as the ground was moist, the whole plant was at once covered with a glass shade. At the end of ten mijautes the shade was remove...
Drying Methods. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917
Drying Methods. An industry that is sure to be- de veloped in the near future is drying of agricultural products, such as po tatoes and also aqueous industrial residues, such as come from sugar making and from breweries. In Prance the process is now applied for drying' fresh beets, and there are also three beet sugar works which en»ploy it for the drying of the ex hausted pulp. In the North of France i there is now being worked an indus trial process for making "sugar flour" from fresh beet pulp, and "a : desiccator is employed here in the | shape of a tower, into the top of j | which the pulp 'is poured, and it j t comes in contact with warm air ; i then the pulp is delivered by a ro- J tary device on to a set of superposed gratings, where it receives hot air, * commencing at a lower temperature j and afterwards suing warmer air up j to a temperature of 120deg. C. Such j dried beet pulp produces a flour that r ha6 the sweetening property of sugar ; to a certain extent, and could be...
