The Hedgehog. TELLING OF EVENTS THAT OCCURRED DURING A NOCTURNAL COUNTRY ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

The Hedgehog. TELLING OF EVENTS THAT OC CURRED DURING A NOCTURNAL COUNTRY ROUND. It was quite late. The wind drift ing down the deserted road, sent whirling, scraping clouds.: of dead leaves scurrying along the pavement. There was rain in the air and the street lamp cast a hazy light, round which motes gathered meaninglessly and whirled, their enormously-magni fied shadows throwing weird, hurry ing shapes upon the pavement. An owl—a white owl—passed, uttering an uncanny, rolling, nasal screech in the ! night sky. A church clock some where in the country town near by struck slowly twelve times, and an other, in the grounds of a country mansion, answered it. Jn the silence after the last stroke something could be distinctly heard coming down the hedge, rustling among the dead leaves as it came. There was a lack of secrecy, a pecu liar self-assurance, about the noise that made it different from the sounds produced by other wild crea tures of the night. Not the rat dare advertise his pr...

Wonderful Ech[?]es. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

—Wonderful Echoes. Probably the finest echo which the world knows is in the Cathedral at Pisa—wh«re the Leaning Tower is. Sing two notes and there is a rever beration ; sing three, and they are at once, taken up by the walls of the edi- j fice, swelled, prolonged, and varied till they seem as a divine harmony from some majestic organ. There is a cavern in Finland in which, if you test your lungs to the top of their capacity, there will an swer you such horrible roarings, moanings, and mutterings that you will be glad to rush out in absolute terror. - The cutting down of trees in a cer tain locality on the Hudson River spoilt a splendid echo. A word shout ed there was repeated forty-two times. Undoubtedly the most extraordinary, echo in the world is to^be heard by the side of a small lake in Bavaria. On one hand rises a perpendicular j cliff several thousand feet high, while j on the other side is a dense forest, j If a pistol shot is fired on the lake ; the woods send back a faint e...

Snail's Wonderful Feats. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

Snail's Wonderful Feats. ? That snail6 can pass over such 6harp instruments as a razor's edge without the slightest harm has been demonstrated by a French scientist, Tbe snail walks with the whole under surface of his body, and it is provi ded with means : to lubricate the road on which it travels. A peculiarly complex system "of muscles enables it to cling in any position to the smoothest objects. In lifting itself over the razor's edge it clings with the hind part of its walking surface to one side of the blade and extends the fore part and bends it down over the other side. Then it draws itBelf over gradually and without exerting any pressure upon the edge of the blade. It could not, however, crawl along the sharp edge of a razor or knife. It is a fact that while the com mon snail has lungs, heart, and a general circulation, being in every re spect an air-breathing creature, it is, nevertheless, able to live indefinitely without inhaling the least bit of air. Experiments have cle...

Nature's Wealth. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

Nature's Wealth. The pine trees of Finland are the gold-mines of the country, and really its chief trade. Pines and silver bir ches flourish on all sides. Everything or anything can apparently be made of birch bark in Finland ; shoes, bas kets, large or small, salt bottles, (lower vases, even an entire suit of clothing is hanging up in Hel«ingfors Museum, manufactured from the bark of the silver birch. The lakes of Finland, of which there are five or six thousand, cover about one-sixth of the country, but these lakes, rivers, and water-ways all take their share in the wood trade. In the autumn the trees are felled and left for the first fall of snow, when they are dragged two or three, one behind the. other. By this means the trees are convey ed to the nearest waterway, where they are stamped with the owner's registered mark and rolled upon the ice of lake or river to await the natu ral transport of spring. On they voy age, those soldiers of the forest, for hundreds of miles to the ...

Birds Outdo Aeroplanes, [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

Birds Outdo Aeroplanes, : ♦ Although of recent years aviation has made such tremendous strides, the feats of present-day aviators cannot be compared with those of Nature's flyers—the" birds ; in speed, endurance, lifting and sighting power, birds beat aviators every time, j A common swallow, for instance, can travel in the air at the rate of {120 miles an hour. [ The vulture when swooping on its prey cuts through the atmosphere at I nearly 150 miles an hour. | Some time ago a swallow flew from Antwerp to Compiegne, a distance of 140 miles, in sixty-eight minutes, the 'flight being timed by observers who returned the bird's average rate of speed at 128 miles an hour. The fastest an aeroplane has ever travelled is 108 miles an hour, and this speed was only obtained by building a freak machine, dangerous to handle. Then, again, birds can fly for twenty-four hours at a stretch with out descending, even in boisterous weather. After eight or nine hours' continual flying an aviator is wear...

WAS IT A TRICK ? The recent issue of a peace Note by Germany was! either a signal of distress or a peace of diplomatic strategy! Germany, io other woras, either needed peace ordesir it.

My Japanese House. AN AMUSING ACCOUNT OF A YOUNG MAN'S EXPERIENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

My Japanese House. • AN AMUSING ACCOUNT OF A YOUNG MAN'S EXPERIENCES. I have taken a house in Sakawa, a charming little hamlet, all pines and silver sands and blue sea, with the mountains rising up out of the plain. My house is truly Japanese, with four rooms and "conveniences'/ of the most primitive kind — the bathroom would certainly be sniffed at by a London washerwoman—I say this be cause it looks so very much like a washhouse in poor health, which in deed it is. In order to people my house I have. purchased a family, consisting of a. widow, her son and daughter. I pay | for them, apparently, in instalments, and they are aB much my; personal property as. my toothbrush or camp stool. The widow, who is plump and j poetic, promises to be a most enter taining servant. The daughter aids i her in the housework, while the son j I still goes to school. The widow is j j called Haru, the daughter O Hana, i while the son gets off with a modest I Kijuro. They call me 0 Danna San— what it me...

If the Intelligence Department of ;he British Army could be supplied with the special intellect of the So-' ciety of Rats, it would outwit and out-manoeuvre the world. .

KEEPING FIT. WHAT A MAN SHOULD DO AFTER HE IS FORTY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 23 January 1917

KEEPING FIT; ? WHAT A MAN SHOULD DO AFTER HE IS FORTY. Why do so many men over forty j break down ? Vital statistics stow that an alarming percentage of men who have passed the age ol forty,and who ought to live to ripe old age, begin to fail rapidly and die, many before they are fifty, and after fifty the death-rate increases out of pro portion to the mere advance in years. Leading physicians have found out from census reports and mortuary statistics that the chief causes of deaths after forty are heart disease, arterio-sclerosis, Brights disease and certain diseases of the nervous sys tem. Now, these diseases are inti mately related" to one another, and have many causative factors in com mon, and, mark this, you man past forty, the two most common causes j of these diseases are over-indulgence 1 of the appetites and lack of outdoor exercise. j Too much alcohol, too much to- j. bacco, too much fast-living — we do ) not need a doctor to tell us what J they will do to a man past fort...
