Paper Underclothes. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 11 July 1916

Paper Underclothes. ♦ Underclothes of paper are now used by airmen, as they have long been used by men who are "down and out" and as paper has long been ' used by thrifty country housewives for making bed quilts (says the New York "World"). For paper is one of the warmest substanccs known. This means that it keeps the cold ■ out and the heat in, for of course it has no warmth in itself, any more than a blanket has. It is a perfect non-conductor of heat. j A suit is made of thin paper. It consists of a coat, trousers, socks, j and a cap with carlaps, which, the ! inventor says, can bo "washed and dried.''' An aviator is more likely to make such a suit for himself, wrapping sheets and strips of paper about hi3 body and fastening them I with paste. Then when he wants to remove them he can tear them oS, making a new suit whenever he is 50 ing to take flight. A piece of paper placed over the upper part of the chest when out motoring is a splen did protection against cold winds, newspaper...

Bird Houses Made of Clay. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 11 July 1916

Bird Houses Made of Clay. « Harris M. Benedict, of Cincinnati, Ohio, who has achieved a wide repu tation as the result of his endeavours' to work up a sentiment in favour of protection of wild birds, has been re cently granted a patent on a bird box which has a number of novel and interesting features. In the first place it is deep and pitcher-like in shape, and made of fire-clay, which can be readily shaped while in the plastic form. The surface may be made to simulate the bark of the tree. The bark-like iinish makes it particularly desirable for the birds, as these feathered visitors are known to avoid anything in the way of a home that is too conspicuous. This bird box has the usual exit and en trance orifice near the top, with a raised waving line inside by which the little birds may help themselves to the entrance when this assistance is required. Another novel feature is the sloping lid with an overhang to protect the interior from being flood ed by storms, as well as a deep f...

AT THE PRISON GATES. A GRIPPING LITTLE HUMAN TRAGEDY WITH A HAPPY ENDING. 1 Through the morning mist bells and elocks struck and chimed the . hour of eight. j With a rattle the big gates of the i prison opened. And a group of men marched through to taste once more the sweets of the liberty they had temporarily forfeited.. Some of them knew the prison . whence they had just come like a j book. Spells of durance vile were to j them mere episodes. ; And as they trooped out they ; laughed and jested. j At five minutes past eight the pri- j son gates opened again. A solitary , figure emerged. Some little formality . to be gone through had prevented j him joining the rest. Whereof be was glad. His hair was greying at the i temples. His broad shoulders sloped j slightly. He bore the ball-mark of j prison. ' The haunted look of fear ; [ common to the gaol-bird still lurked., 1 in the depths of his grey eyes. He I was free ; but as yet he waB utterly i unable to realise it. j The long lane w...

At the'conclusion of I he ordinary business of the Hospital committee meeting last Thursday evening, the retiring president (3Jr S( J. Walker) was complimented by members on the success oj I1I9 term of office. Special reference was made to the personal luterest tfcat be had taken in the affairs of the institution, and to his efforts to im prove and beautify the grounds. The ornamental trees planted by the president twelve months ago are growing vigorously, and new ones have been added. As regards, the finances of the Hospital, the, position is satisfactory, the finan cial year having terminated with a credit balance of £62 10s lid, as compared with a debit of £46 2s 10d at the close of last year. Mr Walker modestly declined to take credit to himself for the financial improvement, remarking that it was due to the generosity of the public, but it was a pleasure to him to retire from the position with the knowledge that the building had been brought up to a decent state of ! repair, th...

ALONE IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 11 July 1916

f^^ALONE IN PARIS; A few years ago M. Paul ColasHon, the famous Parisian hermit, died in his palatial home in the Rue Galilee, j which for more .than a quartor of a : century had been his hermitage and j prison. Thirty yeax*s earlier, he had j been one of the most brilliant and • envied figures in French society, a j man of enormous wealth which he spent with a lavish band. His hos pitality and his charities were both on a regal scale. It was one day in ; the late seventies that a sudden : tragedy revolutionised his life,-'when"! his favourite nephew, a- boy jwhom j he loved as a son, was burnt to j death at a fancy-dress ball. ! From that day M. Colasson was ; dead to the world. He dismissed his : large staff of servants-, shuttered his ■ windows, and shut himself up in a j corner of his palace, with an old de- ! pendent to attend to his wants. No j one was allowed to enter the door ' through which he never once passed himself ; and thus, surrounded by the wealth which was no less ...

The Ramsay Scholarship.! « I It was the end of the winter ees-! si on, or term, as dwellers south of the Tweed would call it, and debate ran high amongst the medical stu dents of a certain famous Northern University ; for what was known as the Ramsay Travelling Scholarship was about to be awarded, after the searching examination prescribed by the statutes should have been under gone ; and although a dozen recently fledged medicos had entered their names as candidates, the consensus of opinion of the general body of the students, seldom at fault in such in stances, had dccided that the running lay practically between two men, the most distinguished students of their year. "It will be a close run,.' said one, who liad entered his own name, "by way of form," as he expressed it.; "but I think Macintyre will prove the man, after all." year ago I should have said so too;" replied another ; "but he has not'been*"so steady "this session, and | Morrison has a better chance now." j "Well, he'...
