GOT THERE FIRST. A sea-captain and a lawyer lived {next door to each other. One very ' windy night the lawyer wag reading ! a book in hie study when a terrific j crash upstairs startled him. Upon j investigating, he found that a chim j ney had hurled itself through his roof, doing considerable dnmage. He discovered it was the sea-captain's chimney. Hastening down to his li brary, he pulled out his law-books and hunted up similar cases, devis ing and scheming how h» could secure ; satisfaction from the detestable cap Jtain. While thus engaged, a note ar j rived from his enemy that read as I follows :— "Sir,—If you don't return those | bricks at once, I will put the matter iin the hands of the law."

Both were acting with great spirit when the wife moved her arm too near a candle,...

IN MEMORIAM SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

IN MEMORXAM SERVICE. In'the English Baptist Church on Sunday evening the Rev T. Beeson conducted ah In Memoriam Service to the late Mr James Williams, taking for his text Rev. 14.13— And I heard a voice from Heayen saying unto me, write, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord, from henceforth, yea. saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours, and their works do follow them." J The preacher says it matters not where they die who die in the Lord —in the home, or in the hospital,on land or sea, yea on the battlefield, with none to read the service at the grave. To be blessed when we die j we must be saints, We are by j nature sinners, and there is not one j righteous, as all haye come short of | the glory of God, and by grace we ( must become saints if we would en- j ter Heaven. Since death does not j change rharacter we must become [ saints here below if we a*e to be j saints above- We must, in fact, be born again and be created snew„by the power 03 the Spirit, or else...

Finger-Ring Lore. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

Finger-Ring Lore, Nowadays the bride has ithe wed ding ring placed on the fourth finger of the left hand, the ancient belief being that a small artery (some peo ple call it vein) runs from this finger to the heart. But at one time mar ried women of England placed the plain hoop of gold on the thumb, and some old missals are said to have directed that the. ring be put first on the thumb, afterwards upon J the second, then on the third, and finally on the fourth fingers. Rings, however, are by no means limited to betrothals and weddings, according to Mr. Jones, in his well known book, "Finger-Ring Lore." One of the prettiest fancies conncctcd with these ornaments is the inscrib ing of mottoes or short verses with in the hoop, though it must be con j fessed that betrothal rings are espe i cially marked out for such senti ments. When men and women took life per haps more seriously, mourning rings j were, inscribed with a Death's head, j a sort of grim reminder, like the J skeleton at th...

PLAIN PANCAKES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

PLAIN PANCAKES. We cannot make llap jacks without eggs, and this recipe is chosen be ! cause two eggs only are required: ) Take a pint of milk, two eggs, four i heaped tablespoonfuls of flour, a ! pinch of salt and some dripping. Put flour and salt in a basin ; make a well in the . centre, break in the eggs, stir gradually, mixing them in the flour by degrees from the sides, and add the milk also by slow degrees, until a thick smooth batter is form ed. Now beat well for quite ten minutes, then add the remainder of the milk ; cover the basin and leave to stand for at least one hour—the longer the better. Rub the'frying pan well with butter or lard, and when it is thoroughly heated pour in a thin covering of batter ; let it brown, then loosen the edges with a knife, and turn the pancake without breaking. A knife with a long thin blade can be used for this purpose. When the other side of the pancake is brown, roll up, and keep hot until sufficient pancakes are fried ; then ! serve with...

LAMPS, AND THEIR TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 27 June 1916

LAMPS, AND THEIR TREATMENT: - Persons living in places where neither gas nor electric light iB laid on are "entirely dependent on lamps for artificial illumination. Now, un less carefully looked after, oil lamps are. a source of much irritation and annoyance. If not properly trimmed . and cleaned they are sure to smoke, and we know how odious the smell of a .smoking lamp is. Again, if not filled, the light is very apt .to go out at:a most inconvenient time, and re filling -a lamp with explosive fluid is not very Bafe,. if it has to be done by the aid of .other artificial light. Somo one said, I forget who it was, that the management of the house in gen-, eral might be gauged by the condi tion of the mustard pot. I am in 1 clined to think that a better test of good or indifferent house-keeping would be the state of the lamps. A pair of scissors, a duster, and an old pair of gloves should be kept to gether with the oil can in a basket • or'1;.box. It will take very little time in the ...
