A LITTLE ERROR. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916
A LITTLE ERROR. Left a wealthy widow, Mrs. Jones thought she'd like to enter Society. So, for a start, she looked round for a furnished house in Mayfair. At last she found one which seen1' ed very suitable. After inspecting it thoroughly, the owner led her back to the drawing-room. There the gooi woman's eyes fell suddenly on beautifully-tinted picture of the "Ma donna," a copy of a famous painting. Opposite this hung another copy Gainsborough's "Duchess of Devon* shire." ' Her lips set firmly. "I like the house well enough, she announced. "But if I take it shall expect you to remove thess family portraits." Teacher : "Now, children, wh&t 'a it we want most in the world to make us perfectly happy 7" Bright Youngster : "The things ft ain't got."

WORLD'S TALLEST WOMEN. , After taking measurements of.. the height of women in France, England, and America, a doctor announces that the English woman is the tall est and the American comes next. The average height of the Trench woman is 5ft. lin. The American woman is nearly 2in. taller, and the women of Great Britain Jin. taller than the latter. American women, however, weigh, slightly more than either .of the others, their average weight being-about 1171b.
BALANCING HIGH-SPEED WHEELS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916
BALANCING HIGH-SPEED WHEELS. Attention has been called by a British motorist to an entirely ne glected feature of light car construc tion. When- the wheel of a light car cycle car, or motor-cycle is revolving 370 to 40.0 times a minute—as at road- speeds of 30-32 miles an hour— the rim of each wheel is travelling" at what steam engineers ca.ll , "high speed." At this speed the weight of the tyre valve ~ is quite appreciable, and makes itself known, in excessive vibration of the ■ "wheel.. ■ In order to counteract this effect the motorist placed a lead Btrip of the same weight as the valve on the rim ex actly opposite the valve position. The result., was highly satisfactory, for - all vibration stopped. Where the wheels^ are of wood, a couple of screws can be inserted, instead of the lead strip, or copper rivets in wire wheels. On the other hand, a motor ist who fitted" a special valve bolt of greater weight .to his cycle car,/ be came greatly -worried when the whole car developed ex...
SASHLESS WINDOW PANE FOR RAILWAY CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916
SASHLESS WINDOW PANE FOB RAILWAY CAES. The last vestige of wood entering into the design;of the modern Ameri can passenger coach has disappeared in the utilisation of the sashless win dow frame being introduced on some of the leading lines. The innovation is being viewed with curiosity and interest by the riders, for its novelty is bound to attract attention. The sash is dispensed with entirely, and itB place is taken by a piece of plate glass covering the entire window opening. The glass is held rather firmly in place between two strips on each side of heavy felt, between which it is moved with slight effort, but the adhesion of the felt and. glass surface is sufficient to hold the pane at any point that the passenger may desire. The movement of the glass is facilitated by two knobs secured to the pane near the top, which also serve the purpose of preventing the glass from dropping below the sill when lowered to its fullest extent for the admission of air. The upper edge of the gla...
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. ROPE IDENTIFICATION. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. ' -■. ♦ ... . ROPE IDENTIFICATION. J Every rope used in the British ! naval service, from heaving line to j hawser, wherever used on board ship or in dockyard, has woven into one of its strands, for purposes of identi fication, a coloured thread. A differ ent colour is used according to the port of manufacture ; red, blue, green and yellow being adopted for differ | cnt ports. The presumption is that i any rope with the coloured thread j found outside of such uses is in im j proper hands. This custom has pre | vailed in the British navy since long j before the days of Nelson. A similar | method of identification is employed I to some extent commercially. Some j railways mark their rope in this way, i and it is also sometimes employed i for identifying ropes which, used for the transmission of power in operat ing machinery and in lighters, would be liable to be stolen.
Swimming to Save Life. ALL CAN ACCOMPLISH IT. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916
Swimming to Save Life. ALL CAN ACCOMPLISH IT. No one thoroughly knows how to swim unless he or she can dive, if need be, in street attire. That iB the dictum of Mr. George T. Holm, one of the world's natatorial experts, whose recent paper we quote. When the unexpected moment suddenly comes to. save a , drowning person somebody usually has to plunge over board with shoes, hat, and all clothes' on. And that is exactly the way to practise and make sure you are at home in the water with all .your clothes on. ., There is an excellent reason for this. Drowning persons do not wait until their rescuers are arrayed in bathing costumes.: The shriek, the outflung hands, the frantically toss- j ing head; do not wait on costume or occasion. Wherever there is water there is a risk of drowning, and the ' j trained young man or woman should ! I be ready-to meet the, emergency—to. plunge ;into the water on the in stant, dressed as he or " she happens to be. ■ | There is a' false idea •about the peri...

WAR BRIBES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916
WAR BRIBES. • The biggest war in history has been responsible for some of the biggest bribes in history. Germany for in stance, gave Turkey £10,000,000 in hard cash, and the promise of huge territorial possessions for coming in on her side. We offered to make over Cyprus to Greece if she would Bide with us ; but the. bribe, apparently, was not considered big enough. Towards the end of the Russo Japanese War it was freely asserted ■ that General Stoessel was bribed i into surrendering Port Arthur. The j accusation sounds ridiculous enough i on the face of it. Yet it must not be I forgotten that the same thing was ! said about Marshal Bazaine's surren- j der of the fortress of Metz in tho > war of 1870-71. The unhappy officer j was put upon his trial, and a lot of ; evidence bearing upon the matter was j brought forward, the actual amount paid over as a bribe by the German Intelligence officer who engineered the deal being put at no less a sum than £210,000. Bazaine was found guilt...

SAVOURY FRITTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916
SAVOURY FRITTERS. Required, five ounces of onion, one ; tcaspoonful of- powdered sage, three ! eggs (if to be had), and four ounces ; of stale bread. Soften the bread by j pouring a little boiling water over j it, and cover, allowing it to soak for : an hour ; then mash it with a fork, ; picking out the hard pieces. Boil the j onion in two or three waters until | quite soft ; chop it fine, add the , powdered sage, a little pepper, salt, \ I and the beaten egg. Mix the whole j thoroughly with the bread. Shape ' the fritters, making them half an ! inch thick and three inches broad. I Fry them in a little hot fat. I give : this recipe intact. Perhaps, as the J other ingredients used for these frit ters are inexpensive, the cost of the | ! eggs may be balanced. But, if eggs : j are taboo, egg powder and milk, with j a little flour to make the mixture ; firmer, may be used. Fritters made j ! with these substitutes for eggs are j quite good, but less so than if made • i according to the o...

PRICE OF PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916
PRICE OF PEACE • ; Past wars have provided many in stances of how dearly peace is some times bought. The biggest and most amazing , sum ever .paid was. that which Germany • demanded ' from France at the close of the Franco Prussian War. It amounted to £200* 00.0,000. Only Ave years before the 'Germans bad wrung from the Aus- ! trians an indemnity of £6,500,000. , When Great Britain gave a crush ing defeat to China in 1840 the amount of the indemnity ~ demanJed was 5,COO,000, and to this has to be added another £2,000,000 after a second war with this country. Con siderable as these sums arc, they did not profit us, seeing that the cost of the wars to Great Britain was £10, 000,000. Sometimes the amount of an indemnity has been rcduced because the conquered nation could not pos sibly find the money. Russia at the close of her war with Turkey in 1877 accepted £32,000,000, after asking a much greater sum. The Turco-Grecian War in 1897 pro vides another case in> point; The Turks were ...
