"Well, I've the very thing for you —Jimforth's Juvenator. Three doses a "day, and more if necessary. One shilling a bottle." i "No, thanks," said the paie pa tient. "But, ray dear sir, it's the rage of i the day, the greatest discovery of modern medicine." It's the rage of the season. Everyone .. is—rejuvenating, you might say." "Yes, but I thinlcTd rather tr\ something else," replied the custo mer. "But," pressed the chemist, "I tell you it will have more effect on you in a single day than any other, medi cine could have in a month. It cures . everything from coughs to corns. What is your objection to it?" "Well, nothing, only I'm Jim forth."

ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 February 1917

ECONOMY. "Yes," he said, "we must cut down and economise. I'v&Ssbrought home a sample bottle of very cheap claret, which I think I shall have to drink in future." "Good !" she responded. "And I have made a pint of furniture polish from an old recipe ever so cheaply.' It was a few days afterwards that the breeze arose. "How was I to know," he stormed, "that you'd put your furniture polish in a wine bottle ? Great wonder I'm not poisoned." , "And how was I to know I was polishing the table with your eld claret ?" she fired back. "Anyhow, it answered very well, and when'you drank the. furniture polish you said it was a very good wine at the price, too."

AN AWFUL SPECTACLE. ZEPPELIN'S FALL THROUGH SPACE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 February 1917

AN AWFUL SPECTACLE. ZEPPELIN'S FALL THROUGH SPACE. As a spectacle, awful and over whelming in its lurid flight through space, the fourth Zeppelin to be dis patched while over British soil must be accounted the superior of any of its predecessors. Its destruction, rapid and corn ■' plcte, was visible over all the nor i thern suburb and outskirts of Lon : don. It was watched by millions of | eyes as it fell lighting up earth and sky like some great celestial torch, j There was little of that atmos j pheric density that robbed many j spectators of the full glory of the j burning of the Cuffley airship, and, j unlike the Zeppelin brought down in Essex, it was sufficiently near Lon don to leave its flaming trail high up when it dropped to its doom. There was singulp.rly little noise throughout the whole affair. The clamour of the guns was less insis tent seemingiy than on any previous Zeppelin raid, because the visitor never apparently reached further than the exterior ring.,of the Londo...

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 February 1917

HOUSEHOLD HINTS. Now sugar is so dear, glycerine can be used to sweeten stewed fruits and custards. Pickles may be kept from becoming mouldy by laying a little bag of mus tard on the top of the pickle-jar. To make a drawer run smoothly and .open easily, ^ rub the runners with a lump of heated beeswax. This is invariably effective. To remove the skins of tomatoes, rub them all over with the back of a knife to loosen, the skins before peeling. This is better than scalding them. To whiten a kitchen table that has become discoloured, Bpread on it over night a layer of wood ashes that have been previously made into a liquid paste with water. Next morn ing-brush off the ashes and scrub with soap and water without soda added. ■ . \ When dyeing bltfuses, etc., instead of washing and dyeing straight away, wash and dry them first, dip in alum and water, and dry again. Then pro ceed with the dyeing. This process will make the colour absolutely safe from running next time the garments are washe...

100,000,000 NEW SUNS. a Will dwellers on this. planet ever view the wonders of other. worldB ? This question has: long been a sub ject of debate among astronomers, and it really seems as if they are about to solve the problem. A new telescope, 250,000 times more powerful than the human eye, is the latest product of the famous Mount Wilson Observatory in Southern Cali fornia. , The chiefs of this, observa tory have sought for many years to outrival all other telescopes, and they1' have succeeded apparently beyond their wildest dreams. The' instrument, it is stated, will "see" the boundaries of the universe, arid give us a view of 100,000,000 new suns ; while its other marvete iu clude a lOOin. reflecting-telescope—a great disc of glass weighing four and a half tons.

BURNS AND SCALDS IN THE KITCHEN. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 February 1917

BURNS AND SCALDS IN THE KITCHEN. A • Should a burn or scald occur when the' orthodox remedies of Carron oil (i.e., 'linseed-oil and " lime-water shaken together in equal proportions) and cotton-wool happen not to be at hand, it is well to remember that several excellent substitutes are forth coming in commodities to be found in every kitchen. Failing salad-oil, which naturally suggests itself as the nearest proxy, flour, finely-powdered, charcoal, or even common whiting liberally, dredged over, or the un beaten white of an egg, or some grated raw potato spread upon the injured ourinoo, »nd t-hp. latter then covered with a thick layer of clean, soft rag, will answer the desired pur pose, while a compress of such rags soaked in new milk proves both soothing and wonderful healing, fresh liquid being poured on as required without disturbing the dressing.
