ILLAH always hated being left alone in that old farm house, for although country-bred she had lived in the village, and Fox cote was up on the solitary wolds. But 011 tliis Sun day afternoon it was her turn to stay, and her heart was sinking as sho watched Master Vale and his family disap pear across the' fields, on their rwav to chapel. Nothing ever had happened on such occasions (except, of course, the num berless strange movements from attic to cellar which always do occur just when you are alone), but a timid disposition knows very well that even if it lias escaped for so long something is bound to happen at. last, especially if you don't expect it.

COAL TAR PRODUCTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 26 January 1917

COAL TAR PRODUCTS. —J.— When coal gas was first introduced as an ilimninant for large towns the tar which is condensed from the gas was looked upon a« a nuisancc. Th« gas companies could not get rid of it, try us they would. However, chemists discovered that coal tar was an exceedingly compli catr-d compwitxi and lent itself ad mirably to the production of a crsnt number of useful chemicals. So we find to-dav that many of the various brilliant and beautiful dyes employed for colouring various kinds of fabrics are produced from this substance. Coal tar also furnishes the basis for several kind? of medicines, such as trional. sulphonal, and so on. Saccharine, which is a substitute for sugar, is also made from coal tar. Carbolic acid (phenol*, the most important and best kro^n antiseptic and disinfectant, is a pro duct of coal tar. Benzol, a clear and colourless liquid resembling alcohol to some extent, is another distillate which is employed for removing grease spots. • Then we have n...

BLISSFUL CALM; ■ The tender-hearted old lady on a - charitable visit through the convict prison stopped for a inomcnt to peer through the little trap in the door of one of the convicts' cells, and to ex change a comforting word with the poor fellow inside. - "I am so sorrySfor ypu," she said. "I suppose you'll be very thankful when the time comes for you to leave this dreadful place ■?" "No, mum, I sha'n't !" said th6 man, with unmistakable emphasis. "Don't want no liberty. I'd a sight rather stop where I am." "How strange," . murmured the old lady to a warder as she turned away. "I had no idea the prisoners were so happy. What was the poor man's of fence ?" "He was a bit too absent-minded," replied the warder, with a grin.. "He kept forgettin' as 'ow he was a mar ried man, an' 'e's got five wives, all bad-tempered, waitin-' for 'im when he get out."

VANISHING TRICK. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 January 1917

VANISHING TRICK. Into a grocer's shop walked an an cient lady with a slow and halting tread, and carrying on her arm a. large earthenware pot with a lid. Placing the basket on the countcr, she made various purchases, which she put carefully in the pot and had her bill made out. "By the way," she said, before pay ing this, "do you mind keeping this pot with the purchases in it until I come back and pay for them, as.I have to buy other things some dis tance off, and it will be more conve nient for .me to leave the things here till later ?" ; This request was willingly acceded to, and, lifting the pot .carefully out of the basket, the old dame placed it, with an effort, in a corner ; then, putting her basket on her arm, left the shop. Hours went by, day ripened into evening, and evening gave way to night, but the ol$ woman did not ro turn. "At last the "proprietor thought 01 examining the* earthenware pot to see if by any chance it had its owner's address upon it, and , great- was his ...

NOTHING SERIOUS. $ SPECIAL FAVOUR. The new curate was very anxious ! that he should look his smartest while preaching his first. But when he arrived at the church ho found that the vestry contained no mirror, so he sought the sexton, an old Scotsman, and asked in low, nervous tones : "Er, James, can I—that is, do you think you could get me a glass ?" James, with a shake of his head, | disappeared, returning after a tew ! minutes carrying something under hi3 I coat. Then it was that the mistaken j James withdrew from under his coat a large black bottle, saying at the same time :— "Ye maunna let on ahoot it, for I j got it as a special favour, an' wadna j hae got it at a' if I hadna. told 'em it was for you." .

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 January 1917

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. - Cook Double Quantity.—It is an economy of time, labour and fuel to cook, a double quantity of vegetables, and have them ready for reheating. Potatoes, corn, beans, etc., can be reheated with butter, cream or milk, or a cream sauce. Beets can be re warmed with butter or served cold with vinegar. To, eradicate stains.—Rub well into the_ stain some powder of magnesia and allow . it to remain for several hours or even days, if convenient, and then with a clean soft brush or cloth • dust off 'the'magnesia. In or dinary instances the stain will have disappeared; Delicate laces can be cleaned upon the same plan in a box of magnesia. In ease magnesia can^ not be had, .some soft fine'meal or white powder may be substituted, though it will not prove as satisfac tory as magnesia, which has great absorptive power. To make a savoury custard for in valids, beat five eggs to a light froth with a pinch of salt. Add as much cream and sweeten to taste. Flavour with vanilla and grat...

TEST FOR DRINKING WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 January 1917

TEST' FOR DRINKING WATER. Much sickness ' results ; from impure water. Water should be "tested at least twice a- year, for. while it may be pure at one time it may become unwholesome though apparently good, it simple, test for sewage iri\water is the'following 'Three-quarters fill- a .clean pint pottle with the water to be tested, and dissolve in it half a teaspoonful of granulated sugar. Cork it and> set it in a warm place for two days. If during this titnc it becomes cloudy, or milky it-is unfit, for use.

ELECTRICITY FOR INSOMNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 January 1917

ELECTRICITY FOR INSOMNIA. Dr. W. F. Somcrvillc, who seems to condemn medical treatment for insom nia, points out the happy contrast of high-frequency electrical currents when administered by a qualified man. They induce a sleep that is pleasant in charactcr and has no evil conse quences. Further, not- only is sleep produced, but the patient derives general benefit' from the influence of high-frequency currents. There is a feeling of well-being and of exhilara tion produced, which'is permanent in character. • Sometimes the result is immediate, at other times a more prolonged course of treatment is re quired. Not only is' insomnia over come, but the patient is Dlaced in a better condition, which is easily recognised by himself.
