When Cities Go Crazy. LONDON AT THE MERCY OF A MAD MOB. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 16 January 1917
When Cities Go Crazy. 4 LONDON AT THE MERCY OF A MAD MOB. Dublin went stark, raving mad not long since. It is a way cities have sometimes. Then, just as single in dividuals do when smitten with in sanity, they perpetrate all sorts of horrible deeds that in their saner moments they would be the first to repudiate and condemn. Paris was attacked by just such a violent fit of mental aberration im mediately after the last Franco-Ger man War. Her "Sinn Feiners" call ed themselves Communists, and these misguided people did pretty much as did the Dublin rebels. That is to say, they seized public buildings, threw up street-barricades, and en trenched themselves in open strategic spaces. The result in the end, too, was the same. They were overpower ed by the regular troops, and the bulk of them were killed or- made prisoners, but not until a fourth part of Paris had been laid in ruins, property worth £32,000,000 being des troyed. To find anything in London aprosi mating to the Dublin madness...

Highest Telephone Pole. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 16 January 1917
Highest Telephone Pole. One of the tallest telephone poles in the world is where the wiree of the Pacific States Telephone Company cross the Chehales River, near Aber deen, Wash. For some time a pole 90ft. high was sufficient to keep the wires rlear of the river craft. But the increasing passage of ocean stea mers made a higher pole necessary, and a new one 126ft. high was set up. This pole is one single stick- of Washington fir, 18in. at the butt and 8in. at the top. The pole weighs 6,000rb. The stick was cut at a point 12 j miles distant and towed down the ! river, where it was erected by 12 j men using a twelve-horse-power hoist j ing engine. For making attachments j to the pole and raising it a | steel : cable was employed run through lOin. | steel blocks. The pole was set 12ft. j in the ground and guyed with four . steel-stranded wires at the top, and I also guyed about 40ft. from the top J with four-sixteenthB-inch Btranded I wires.

SAVED! [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 16 January 1917
SAVED ! They were on leave from the Front and they had dined well and wined well, and finished at a theatre. Outside they separated, and the leader of the party was lucky enough to secure a taxi. Halfway home, however, he discovered, on putting his hand into his-pocket, that he was penniless. Wha£ was to be -done ? The British Army is never at a loss and in a few momenta he saw a way out. He caught up the speaking-tube, and shouted "Stop !" Then, jump ing out, he told the driver to wait. "I just want to pop into this to bacconist's to get a box of matches. I've dropped a sovereign on the floor of the cab, and I can't find it in the dark." He entered the tobacconist's, and the moment he was through the door the driver and the cab softly and suddenly vanished into the night, as he had anticipated. "My darling," she murmured, "you were so grand, so noble, when you proposed to me that day in the mo tor-car ! Shall I ever forget how touchingly you spoke of your future, of the sacrifice y...

® ITEMS ON IVORY. CONCERNING A MOST ROMANTIC CALLING. The ivory market of the world i* &lt;o be found in London—in Mincing Lane, in fact,—and there you will find stored ail the ivory that enters fho LontTon docks from time to timr. Sales are held puriodieallv, ■ ami prior to a sale the ivory is placed 011 view for the benefit of prospec tive. buyers. The elephant, for the most part, supplies our ivory, and each y?ar. it is stated, some f>n.000 elephants have to be scoured.

POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 January 1917
POULTRY. ♦ - Lime in sonic form i.s indispensable to laving hens, and most poultry keepers provide it in the form of crushed oyster-shells. But this mate rial, it should be borne in mind, is of no use to male birds or to hens that are.not laying-. It merely pro vides material for shell formation, and does not 'perform, as many ima gine, the function of Hint grit. The latter is indispensable to fowls at all times to enable them to digest their food. » # » * To readers interested in gi-eso it may be of advantage to know that old geese lay more, larger, and more reliable eggs than young ones, that there is less risk in using young gan ders than old geese for breeding, and that the proportion of fertile eggs produced by a goose in the second year of laying is always greater than the first. It is also worth no ting that geese which ' are moved' about mu.h from place to place do not lay satisfactorily. # * * '• Many poultry-keepers do not real fsc the necessity of giving the' fowls green-...
