Weather at the Zoo. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916

Weather at the Zoo. 4 It is interesting to note the effect of a rainy day on the beasts and birds at the Zoo. All the cats, big and little, lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, pumas, as well as the many smaller tribes, hate the rain. Even the domestic pussy that purra on the rug stays there when the day is wet, and shakes her dainty paws in disgust when she inadvertently gets her feet Vet. The Zoo cats are just,as disgusted with a rainy day. So much is this the case that the keepers give them an extra dose of hot .milk—medicine they very much like. Before they get their milk they j are prowling restlessly about their | dens, growling and grumbling, and j actually trembling as if their nerves were on the rack. The hot milk puts them off to sleep and renders them oblivious of the damp and gloom outside. ! - On . tho " contrary, all the wolf and dog.tribe love gloomy, damp, drip-: ping weather. Though the wolf is a treacherous beast, his keeper need not worry on a wet day, for the wolves...

SUNDAY OBSERVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916

SUNDAY OBSERVANCE. ; The pastor of the Presbyterian | Church, the Rev. J. S. Thompson, occupied the pulpit on Sunday evening last, when he preached upon the subject of " Sunday Ob servance," from the texts—"Re member the Sabbath Day to keep it holy"—Exodus 20, 8, and "The Sabbath was made for mau"—Mark 2, 27. The preacher said that the natural I feeling of many was to resent that which came as a commandment—as an enforce ment of a law. The " thou shalt and thou must" sometimes had a tendency to arouse irevulsion of feeling. This attitude in regard to a Divine command, like the above, was the outcome of an unwarramed prejudice or ignorance of"the real signifi cance or reason ot the giving of the com mand Men were apt to think that obed ience to this Divine authoritative injunc tion did sometimes interfere with thJir interest and frequently with their pleas ure—that it was aroitrary It is true that it does sometimes appear to clash with man's interests and frequently with their moneta...

Aviators' Nerves. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916

Aviators' Nerves. The Paris correspondent of the "Lancet" writes :— Some French observers have work ed out a method of detailed physiolo gical examination applicable to be ginners in aviation, which has al ready met with high approval. In order to test the degree of self-con trol and of endurance, the would-be pilot must begin by exerting with both hands a rhythmic and continu ed effort, which is inscribed on the tambour of an apparatus and auto matically added up in kilos by a meter. He is then placed in front of a needle moved by clockwork one complete turn in a second. Imme diately the subject is aware of any deflection of the needle he must ar rest it by pressing on a lever. ' Finally, a tambour is applied to his thorax or to the . pulse in order to | gauge his respiratory and circulatory rhythm. He is then submitted to a violent and unexpected sensation, visual or tactile—a magnesium flash, a detonation, or a douche of ice-cold water. A rigid self-control may en sure no apparen...

Where They Came From. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916

Where They Came From. A The word "sweetheart" seems everything it ought to be for expres siveness. Ouc would naturally think it had been coined for the occasion, like such a word as "honeysuckle." But that is a delusion and a snare. It has no more to do with "heart" than it has with "lungs." It is a word that belongs to the class which includes "sluggard" and "coward" I and "dullard" and "niggard." Pret ty company for a poet's word ! But it is true, though sad, that "sweet heart" ought to be spelled "sweet ard" !. When you say that you have made an opponent eat humble pie, you are ' quite certain it means that he had to humiliate himself before your su ' pcrior wisdom or righteousness or dignity. As a matter of fact, the word has^no connection with "hum ble" whatever. But in olden days they used to make the "umbles," or entrails, of the deer which provided the venison for the baronial table— the giblets, so to speak—into a pie for the serfs. Thus, if you ate "um bles pie," you were ...

COURTING DEATH. THE STORY OF SOME FOOLHARDY FEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916

COURTING DEATH. THE STORY OF SOME FOOL HARDY FEATS. There is no more remarkable chap- | ter in human history than that which describes the foolhardinese with which men have risked their lives for wagers, for the means of living, or under an impulse of reckless daring. When, not long ago, William Shields announced his intention to ride his bicycle down the Capitol steps at Washington, he deliberately faced an almost certain death out of a spirit of sheer bravado. The steep terrace-steps on the west front of the Capitol are 74 in number, broken at intervals by three landings ; and the feat of riding down them in safety seemed as impossible as a trip to Mars. But Shields faced his self-imposed task with a smiling face. Springing into his saddle at the dizzy top of'the long flight, he des cended the first few steps cautiously. Then, as ill-luck would have it, he lost his pedals ; and, unable to re cover thpm, grasped his handle-bars tightly and prepared for the worst Down the remainder ...

The Monroe Doctrine. WHAT IT REALLY IS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916

The Monroe Doctrine. WHAT IT REALLY iS. Briefly, the Monroe Doctrine, which was definitely laid down in 1823 by J James Monroe, the fifth President of ! I the United. States, was the outcome I j of a suspected concert of certain | Powers to interfere in Spanish Amer- ! ica on behalf of • Spain. Monroe, i therefore, laid it down that no .Euro pean Power should be allowed to in terfere in matters relating to the American continents. America on her part, agreed not to interfere with any existing colonies or dependencies of any European Power then estab lished, but expressly stated that she would not allow any European Power to make any further efforts to col onize any. part of the American con tinents. The official words of the law which Monroe laid down leave no doubt as to what America's attitude would be towards any other country endeav ouring to do so. "We owe it, there fore, to candour and to the amicable relations existing between the United States and these Powers (European Powe...

THE LITTLE MORE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916

THE LITTLE MORE. . An interesting story is told about an eminent surgeon which is worth passing on. In sewing tip a wound after an operation one of his stu dents observed that he always tied three knots where the custom -was to tie only two. Asked about it, the surgeon replied, "The third is ray sleeping knot ; it may not be neces sary to tie it, but it makes the mat ter that much 6afer, and I find I sleep better for it." That is only one more instance ol the logic of doing just a little more than anyone could properly demand.

POPULARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 1 August 1916

POPULARITY. The definition • of popularity as given by a salesman in a big music shop is one that may be applied to other things besides songs. "Is this a popular song?" asked a young woman, holding up a Bheet of music brilliantly decorated in red and green. "Well, no, miss," said the sales man, assuming a judicial air, "I can't say it is, as yet. Of course, lots of people are singing it, and everybody likes it, but nobody's got tired enough of it yet for it to be what you'd call a popular song, miss."

FROM THE COURTS. A judge and barrister were upon indifferent terms, a client of counsel made his appearance at the bar with his jaw terribly swelled, and the judge remarked, "Mr. , this client of yours would make an excellent bar-' ristcr ; he's all jaw." which set the. Court in a roar of laughter against the barrister. On silence being restored, the coun sel then remarked, "My lord, I think he would make a better judge, for his jaw is all on one side." The retort turned the laugh against the judge, and from that day they were on the best terms of friendship.

But the man of action said "How. oldfashioned ! I shall corner the stock market, and that will bring her." So the dreamer wrote verses, ana he induced a friend of his who ran a magazine to print them. And the man of action cornered something or other, and became a billionaire. In the meantime the girl married a man who inherited his money, and they lived happy ever after. But the dreamer was 60 proud ot las verses that he didn't care ; and the man of action was so busy that he didn't care. The only one to suffer was the man she married.
