A POINTED NEGATIVE. A lawyer was telling some collea gues of neat retortB he had heard in Court, when he was reminded of the interchange of compliments between a Sheriff and a sharp-tongued advo cate.

I wouldn't givejou five shilling* for him. I live eight miles out in the country, and I'd have to walk back two miles."
Watches Wound by Electricity. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916
Watches Wound by Elec tricity. While the winding of one'g watch would seem to call for but a email amount of energy, it assumes a most significant aspect when multiplied several hundred times, as in the in stance of a watch repairing concern in New York City, part of whose work it is to wind 700 watches or more each day. 'to facilitate the work the firm makes use of an elec tric motor which drives a small, felt lined socket through friction drive. It is only necessary to start up the motor and hold the stem of a watch against the felt-lined socket to wind the timepiece. When the watch is completely wound, the tightened spring overcomes the pressure be tween the motor pulley and the fric tion disc, with the result that slip page takes place. Simple as this electric watch winding equipment is, it has replaced several men formerly required for the work. Before Lorraine was united with France, in 1736, it belonged to the dethroned King pf Poland. Before* that it belonged to Austria. In ...
Tale of a Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916
Tale of a Horse. A horse called Jack was one among many employed at the erection of I Waterloo Bridge. The horse was ac customed to draw the stone trucks ! along a tramway to a place where ; the stones were required. A beer house was, of course, opened near the works for the special use of the nav vies and other workmen. The driver of Jack's truck was an honest sort of fellow named Tom, who had one special weakness, an inability to pass the beerhouse with out taking a little. Jack was so ac customed-to this that, though a res tive animal, he waited contentedly till Tom came out of his own accord or until the appearance of an over looker startled the mac into activi ty. On one occasion, however, when the superintendents were absent, Tom took so long a spell at the ale that Jack became restive, and the trace fastenings being long enough the ani mal put his head inside the alehouse door and, seizing the astonished Tom by the collar with his teeth, dragged the lazy man out to the truck....

His Sad Mishap. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916
His Sad Mishap. A wounded soldier, asked by a friend what struck him most at the front, responded, with a laugh "The thing that seema most strange is the fact that in the most serious moments and in situations tbat are really perilous something funny seems bound to crop up. "There's a fellow in my company named Potts, and we soon christen ed him Pewter. His features are ; plain, some folks would call him ! ugly ; but Pewter has the idea that 1 he's as handsome as they make 'em. i " 'I don't care what I get or where j I get it, so long as I don't get a j clump on the head,' he said to me I one day when we were going into the trenches.

Discriminating Justice. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916
Discriminating justice. There is'»n old New England squire whose knowledge of the statute law 1b limited, but who has decided views as to common justice. Not long ago a certain Zed Smith was brought be fore him, charged with larceny. It appeared from the evidence that Zed had ..rented a horse from a farmer to do some hauling, and that, during the period the animal had remained in his possession he had fed it from the owner's stock of grain, although | the agreement was that Zed himself should supply the feed. He was charged by the farmer, therefore, with the theft of two bushels of oata and corn. "The statutes made and provided," the old squire announced, ponderously "eay that theft is to convert to your' own use the property of another. The horse is the servant of the owner, not of Zed, and Zed converted tbem oats to the horse's use, not his—so I acquit Zed of stealin' them j oats—he ain't guilty of larceny." j Zed rose, thanked the squire, and | was about to leave the room vhen th...

A New "War Story." 9 "We were rather slack, and four of us took a walk, to stretch our legs a bit. Going along a lane we met two French peasants, and, being out of smokes, we asked them if they knew where we could get some. "They answered so fluently in Eng lish that we were put off our guard, as few peasants are so well educated as to speak English well. They said they would show us a place, and pre sently we followed them into a house. "Directly the door closed we were seized by about ten men and dragged into the kitchen, where we were bound to chairs. They all looked like French peasants, but we could tell from the way they spoke that they were Germans. "I thought we were fairly in for it ; but they did not search us, see ing that we had no arms. They did not notice the bayonet in T 's belt. "Most of them went to another room, leaving one man to guard us. Presently he began drinking. Soon he fell asleep.
