Regimental Records Edited in the Firing Line. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917

Regimental Records ./ Edited in the Firing -Line. - By Ignatius Phay re. Of all tie institutions which re lieve the tedium erf the soldier's day I give first place to the regimental newspaper, which is written, edited and printed or "graphed" in the war zone by some simple copying process known to every city office. These unique publications vie with one an other in wit and humour, in satire, anecdote, and merry skits upon every phase of life in the interminable '"'siege of positions." Sentiment has little or no place in daily or weekly records, of which every column ■ is incorrigibly gay. Even the financial section presses the claims of "our hundred per cent ex chequer Bombs" as the only possible investment for the patriot in a tight 1 pl«\ce ! These unique sheets are often born at sea, and pass from hand to hand'among the soldiers pn a long distance transport. Such a one was the oddly-named "Mokoiari" of the 4th New Zealand Rifle Brigade. The Australians, too, published newspapers...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 January 1917

A very sad death occurred in the local hospital on. Saturday last, when a young man named John Harold Blackinore passed away at the early age of 30 years. The de ceased, who was born in Maidon, was admitted into the Institution a few days before Christmas suffering from pleurisy, and as complications arose Dr Hill was called in in consultation, when it was found necessary   to perform an operation for an   abcess on the liver, which was successfully performed, but despite the best medical skill and most careful nursing the patient gradually sank and died as above stated, Deceased was a son of Mrs Elizabeth   and the late Mr Charles William Blackmore, and spent the greater part of his life in the town where he was born, respected by all who knew him. He followed the occupation of a miner, and worked in   West Australia for 4 or 5 years, from whence he returned about 6 months ago, arriving home on the day that his young brother Percy...

THE LANCASHIRE METEORITE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 January 1917

THE LAXCASHI Ilk METEORITE. Professor W. G'. Jenkins, the cura-' tor of the Godlee Observatory, Man chester, lias completed his. investiga tions of the meteorite whicli fell on . a Lancashire farm on 'the night' of I October 13. The weight _of:.;theob ject seemed considerable; for its size, about 9.0 by 9.1 by 6.6.iJiclies, but on examination this agreed very nearly with the weight to be expect ed" from the varioug constituents in their due proportions, the specific gravity being 3.3 times that of water. A preliminary examination of a small portion has revealed the pre-i ; Sellce of iron and nickel, which in ! conjunction with sulphur and other ! elements accounted for the specks and flakes described as gold and sil : ver combined ; these represented only 22 per cent, of the whole. Silica , and magnesia, composed the main body of the mass, with some traces of other elements. j "An examination of the records of meteoric falls," adds Professor Jen kins in contusion, "shows that the on...

AMERICA'S BEGINNING IN CAMPHOR. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 January 1917

AMERICA'S BEGINNING IN CAMPHOR. ' 1 . A dozen :years ago the Uniwi States Government was distributing broadcast throughout Florida a bul letin of immense /import, setting forth the excellent results of a pro longed series of experiments in cam phor-raising in this mild climate, and urging that every citizen of the peninsula, whether rural or urban, should sot out as- many camphor trees as tho ground around his home would allow. If all one's ground spacc .should be taken up with food and fruit plants, the argument pro ceeded, still there were tho walks and roadways to be lined. And what is more beautiful, .symmetrical and delightfully umbrugeous than tho vividly green and gracefully branch ing camphor trees ? Tint realisation had come home to our nation, about that time, with especial forcc and significance, that. Japan had a monopoly of the cam phor trade ; hence, a monopoly of one or the most important sinewy of war. The propaganda waged at that time, both by bulletin, by experi me...

COMMON SENSE IN FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 January 1917

COMMON SENSE IN FARMING. * . __ . -A - i The land is like a bank. I£ you do not put money into it, you cannot ! draw any out, ux:opt as an over i draft, and an overdraft has eventu ! tiny to bo met. If the overdraft has to be met from sources oUw than the farm, then there is something •wrong with the fanning. The aim of a good farmer is to work his land in such a way as to increase the productiveness of his crops, whatever they may be, to the .greatest extent. The question is : How is this to be done ? And the three most important factors are—By the careful selection of seed ; by good preparation of the soil ; and by the liberal use of.suit able manures. If the seed put into the soil is pure, with good germina ting power, the plant starts on its career under favourable auspices. Other conditions being equal, the crop grown with the best .seed will produce the best yield ; it is a^ hopeless to expect a satisfactory crop from faulty seed as it is to get good animals from inferior stoc...

SAVING THE COLONEL'S BODY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 January 1917

SAVING THE COLONEL'S BODY. f — ■ The deep attachment which often exists between the private soldier and his officer is strikingly illustra ted by the following incident,. "While leading our battalion in a terrible charge," writes a French of ficer,- "our colonel fell. His body was 'only five yards from the German trenches, and when night came one of my men draped himself in a white sheet, so as not to be seen on the snow by moonlight, and crept for ward to fetch the body. He went | very carefully on his knees in the j snow until he reached the body and : passed a rope round the waist : but, ! the frozen snow cracked, and the noise attracted the attention of the Germans, who started firing at him. '"Owing to the white sheet, with which he was covered, they could not easily see him and missed him, in spite of a lively fusillade. A few minutes later he was back in our trenches. When the Germans stopped firing he returned, being himself tied with a rope so as to allow his com 1 rades to...

CHAPTER XXVI. .CONCLUSION". | Earjy evening saw the gale in full force, to the accompaniment of a ! lively thunderstorm. But I had had too much of the discomforts of the ' sea to have any desire to remain on .deck. The warm, dry cabin was in finitely more attractive than all the grandeur and fury above. It was with a blessed sense of romfort and security that wo gathered about the well-laclen supper-tatle, enjoying, ;o the full, the kindness of Captair. Mc Gregor and his officers. We all turned in early, and. though the bunks were, hard and the sheets rather, dingy, they were like c.der down and lavender to ourr weary 'botHes; The "storm had been of great violence, and though the sun rose clear, there was an angry sea, with the wind coming in fierce gusts, as (hough half inclined to try its-power again. . j;..
