WAR LOAN BONDS UNDER JEFERRED PAYMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 30 June 1916

WAR 1,0AN BONDS .UNDER JEFERRED PAYMENT. A new departure has been made in connection with the War Loan now being floated, and one that is likely to prove extremely popular, particularly among employees who have, up to the present, perhaps not thought of this class of invest ment. Under the sys!em now available it is possible tor anyone to apply for £10 War Loan Bond by payment of ,£1 on or before the 1st August next, and instalments o£ £1 a month thereafter for 9 months, the last payment being due on 1st May 1917. A full year's interest will then be pa<d on 30th June, 1917, and each succeeding half-year; The whole amount taken up will be repayable to the investor on 15th December, 1925. In making arrangements under this system of deferred paymen's, the Commonwealth Treasurer has appealed, first of all, to the em ployers of labor to interest their employees to allow them to deduct from wages or salaries whether paid monthly, fortnightly, or weekly, amounts not exceeding 5s...

"No, sir," said the wealthy mer chant to his confidential clerk, who had asked for the hand of his daugh ter ; "no, sir ; if you were a rich man it would be different; but as it 5 " He spread his hand out palm up ward to signify that the young man'? chances were hopeless. But they were j not altogether without hope. Some ! months later the wealthy merchant | was astonished to find that his con j fidential clerk had bolted with prac j tically the whole of hiB fortune. He was still more astonished to receive a telegram from the absconder, who was somewhere in South America, with the following message "Am rich—very rich, but regret to say am not in position to ffl»rry » poor man's daughter." .

Wills Against Wives. POSTHUMOUS SNUBS ADMINISTERED BY HENPECKED HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 4 July 1916

Wills Against Wives. . » posthumous snubs adminis tered by henpecked hus bands. . Some husbands who have nourished a grievance against their wives have tried to get a little of their own back by means of their wills—an un kind method if the lady is not real ly to blama, and rather unsatisfac tory if she is, since she may die first. Even the famous have had a dig at \heir wives, as witness the great Duke of Marlborough, who left his duchess "£10,000 wherewith to Bpoil Blenheim in her own way, and £15, 000 to keep clean and go to law with." The Earl of Stafford, one of Marl borough's contemporaries, wrote in his. will : "I give to the' worst of women, who is: guilty of all the ills,, .the, daughter of Mr. Gramont, whom 1 have unfortunately married, five and-fortyi' brass halfpence, which will buy her a pullet for her slipper, a greater sum than her father can of ten make." Many wives have been cut off with the proverbial shilling, and one hus band went a little further by stating that...

HAVE A BANANA? [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 4 July 1916

HAVE A BANANA ? The banana is one of the great curiosities of the vegetable kingdom. One cannot call it a tree, a bush, a j shrub, or a vegetable, but a herbace- j ous plant with the status of a tree. I Though there is no woody fibre in any part of ite? structure, it some times grows as tall as thirty feet, and the bunches of fruit are so pro lific that they are often heavier than the stalk that supports them. Of all fruits, the banana yields most food per acre. It yields forty times more by weight than the potato, and as much as 133 times more than wheat. It is immune from disease of any sort, and no insect will attack it. Nervous people often reject bananas that have become brown and mushy, fearing microbes. • But such fear is needless. The banana is fit to eat as soon as it has lost all the green colour, and remains fit no matter how black it may be, so long as the skin is' unbroken ; for until the lat ter occurs, there can be no admis sion of air and no decomposition. Bananas, b...

Life-saving a Crime. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 4 July 1916

Life-saving a Crime. • a. ' The. weird and wonderful laws of Germany, which render the simple civilian's life a- misery, have often been! dilated on, but the most amaz ing of all punishments inflicted by the authorities of the Fatherland haB yet to be .related. . This dire oflcnce was committed in a town in Alsace, where a school master, who had caught cramp while bathing, was rescued by an onlooker at the risk of his life. The German authorities decided that the rescuer had committed the unpardonable of fence of bathing in a prohibited place, and imposed a fine with costs ! In Vienna a young actress not long ago committed the crime of wearing correct uniform on the stage. For this act, which was held to degrade1 the dignity of the Army, she was fined a sum cciual to thirty-two shil lings. ThiB must seem strange even to the Huns, who demand that, when a uniform in worn on the stage, it should be correct to a button. A more justifiable punishment, in the opinion of many playgoers, wa...

' [ : If it is nccessary to' abandon the ship the passenger steps into his pri vate boat, closes the outer cover, and launches himself by hurling him ! self overboard. Then, according to Mr. Piperno, the apparatus rights it self in the water, the top cover is thjown open, and the occupant finds himself sitting in an absolutely un sinkable boat.

WITTY FATHER HEALY. SOME OF HIS BEST RETORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 4 July 1916

WITTY FATHER HEALY. SOME OP HIS BEST RETORTS. It was the ambition of every dis tinguished ; man who lived in or visit ed Dublin to dine with Father Healy, and in one of Lord Randolph Chur chill's letters, preserved in the ad mirable biography by his son, he i writes, after a Session of unusual j stress, that nothing could restore j him but "a night spent in Father I Healy's company." i On one occasion a fine clutch of j young ducks arrived among the gifts ! which frequently reached Father ! Healy from his many admirers. The ; genial priest watched their progress i from the pond to the table with live- j ly satisfaction. Seeing them sport- j ing in the water, he exclaimed, with ■ whimsical compassion, "Poor inno- j cents, how they enjoy themselves, j never thinking that my green peas ; are growing on the other side of the j garden wall." j It was Father Healy who, when j Mr. Balfour j at .that time Chief Sec-j rotary for Ireland, asked if there ' was any truth in the statement in j t...

Trooper A. S, M'Nabb. Writing from Tel-el-Kebir on 23rd May, Trooper Ales. M/Nabb said be expected a big exodus of light horse troops during the next few weeks. Life on desert is monotonous, and we expect to go to Saglaud or France, and hope it is latter place, so that we may fake our share of the responsibility in the fighting there, and show that the light" horse troops are not merely ceremonial regiments.. The linking uc of the Russian cavalry with the British troops iu Meso potamia mast be regarded as highly important, and the greater the successes in that direction the lesser the prsssure will be exercised on the | Egyptian frontier on the canal by ieuemy troops.

Another Profession Invaded by Women. HOW A BANK CLERK BARNS HIS DAILY BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 4 July 1916

Another Profession In vaded by Women, HOW A BANK CLERK BARNS HIS DAILY BREAD. There are doubtless many old bank managers turning in their graves at ' the present time, and others who find a feather bed a more comfortable : resting place, are having sleepless j nights wondering what the world— | , meaning the banking woi-ld—is com- ' I ing to. . And the cause of it all is | what cynical people say is at the j root of all trouble—women. Women j bank clerks have arrived, and are ap-. : parently not doing so badly. j During the last decade the com- ! j plaint has been bitter among bank j I clerks that banking, as a profession, ; is going to the dogs, and attempts j have been made—with not over- ! whelming success—to form a bank ( ! clerks' union. But nothing so radi- j cal an introduction to such a conser- ! | vative institution as banking as that! J of women clerks has ever been aeri- j jously contemplated. But the war has ■ worked the miracle, and' feminine la-j bour—if such a harsh t...

ATHLETICS FOR BOYS. ' I V HOW TO BE STRONG WITHOUT APPARATUS.

With apparatus there is always danger of the boy over-exerting-him self 'in order to perform certain feats, and great harm ha6 often been done by over-exercisc. • The first essential to, the proper physical development of a boy is to teach him how to breathe correctly, and the following simple exercises ai;e recommended by an expert as very beneficial.
