ELEPHANT'S SONATA. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

ELEPHANT'S SONATA. Stories' about elephants are rather scarce just now, so we think we ought not to keep this one to our selves. It comes from Italy, and is I a3 follows An elephant was advertised to play a sonata on the piano. A great crowd assembled, and money was re j fused at the doors. There was a very i solid platform, and a grand piano J forte. The elephant "came on," and i was received with deafening applause while the impresario led it up to the j instrument, when it suddenly turned tail and walked away. Nothing could be done to induce it to come back, and the audience got excitcd and seemed to think they were the victims of a fraud. Whereupon the manager addressed them, and an nounced that the animal, usually so docile, had recognised in the notes of the keyboard of the piano the teeth of its mother, and positively declined to piay on that instrument' The Italian audience were as much amused with the story as they ex pected to be with the sonata, and the elephant, coming o...

THE BIGGEST MYSTERY OF THE WAR. AMAZING FACTS ABOUT LOST LEGIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

THE BIGGEST MYSTERY OF THE WAR. AMAZING FACTS ABOUT LOST-. LEGIONS. The fate of a portion of the 1st Battalion of the 5th Norfolks in the abandoned Dardanelles operations will rank as the biggest mystery of the ' war. Rudyard Kipling's weird story, "The Lost Legion," has been matched, for Colonel Sir H. Proctor Beauchamp, fifteen officers, and 238 men have absolutely disappeared from human ken. Sir Ian Hamilton has told how they charged the enemy's position, passed through a village, and on to a dense wood beyond, "pushing" on, driving the enemy before them." The rest is 6ilence. . "Nothing : more was ever seen; : or heard of them. They charged .into the forest; and were lost to slghfc or sound. Not one of them ever came back.". - The forest into"which' they charged was scoured through and through the nest day, but no one of this band of heroes, dead.-.orvalive,- was found. Though there have been reports of certain belongings having been re recovered, there has been no verifica tion...

LOST ELOQUENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

LOST ELOQUENCE. Determination writ large upon h« angry countenance, the mother of the child who had been bitten by an Irish terrier belonging to a neigh bour (Mrs. Green) gave an authorita ' tivc "rat- tat" with the knocker at ; Mrs. Green's door. ] The door was opened by a meek looking, elclerly woman, and the vials of the mother's wrath burst forth. "You're MrB. Green, I suppose," she Bneered. "Green by name an' i green by natur', I should call you, | to keep a feroshus animile like that ; there Irish terrier-torial o' j-ourn, a | bitin' of innercent children an' a ter rierizing the whole neighbourhood, i I'll have the law of you !

LONG WINDED. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

LONG WINDED. I The prosy old barrister was argu ing a technical case in the High Court. He was drifting along in a monotonous voice, when the bored judge yawned with hardly any at* .tempt at concealment. "I sincerely trust that 1 am not unduly trespassing on the time of the Court?" said the barrister, with just the slightest tinge of sarcasm in his voice. "There is some difference," replied the judge, "between trespassing on time and encrouching on eternity."

Thkke }8 naturally much pressing Inquiry into the causes of the excessive CoEt ©f most of the necessities of life. That the war would cause scarcity of many useful articles is a accessary part of the incidents of warfare. The difficulty of the Importation of raw mateilals requisite In ordinary manufacturing pursuits, owitjg to difficulties of transport and such determined attention being forced on the manu« fac'ure of the munitions of war, are i certainly _ some of the reasons why many articles have goti^ up In price. But these reagpag are opt tb§ whole of i he reasons. One great cause of the additional cost of articles Is the excessiye extension of the use of paper money.

SNOWDEN PUDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

SNOWDEN PUDDING. Required, four ounces of suet chop ped line, four ounces of breadcrumbs, two tablespoonfuls of marmalade, a tablespoonful of moist sugar, one egg, and a pinch of salt. Mix all the ingredients together, then put in the beaten egg. Butter a basin, put the mixture in it, tie down with a cloth, and steam for four hours. The draw back to this simple pudding is the long cooking required, but a litsle attention will keep water at the right heat without excess of fire. If you have no steamer, turn a saucer upside down in the cooking pot, put the pudding basin on the saucer, and pour in sufficient water to the level of half the basin. Fill up from time to time to keep the water up to that level.

BROSE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

BROSE. Brose: is pre-eminently a Scotch dish, but I am not sure that the fol lowing' is a Scotch recipe for brose : Take a portion of the liquor in which a. good sized piece of beef has been boiled. Bring the broth again to boiling point, then gradually 6t.ir in some coarse oatmeal previously browned in the oven. Brose should be sent to the table very hot, and ought to be very thick. Any good gravy, or a little meat essence may be poured over the meal instead of pot liquor ; or for a change over pea-flour, such as is used to thicken soup ; hominy, too, may be vrepared in like manner. The cost o! these pulse foods, respectively, is relative ly small.; The food produced is whole some and sustaining, and when care fully made is by no means unpalat able. Naturally, persons who are rot vegetarians, and. have been long ac customed to a meat diet, v. ill not relish a meal of pulse, in equal de gree-. Notwithstanding this, the food is, for a change, not to be despised. Adults find it diffic...

Chop a small teacupful <-f well washed parsley with the beans, and tie the whole in a pudding cloth as tight as possible. Put it in boiling water with a little salt. Allow the pudding to cook for three hours. Then turn it out and serve with good, melted butter. I have not tasted this recipe, but think that a seasoning of pepper and salt and a lump of butter would im prove the pudding if added before boiling.
