Residents throughout the district j of Mrildon will regret to learn (bat I W' Bowe and family iiav£ decided to take their departure from the town and will bs lea"ing for good this week. Mr Bowe has been such a usefnl citizen in every possible way for so many years that the citizens could not let them depart without some slight recog nition of bis past services. In every public movement and as a worker in the cause of charity he could not be beaten, while Mrs Bowe was always ready to assist in any deserving cause where her services were required. As a member of the Church of "England, J'r Bowe will also be much missed as Churchwarden, as he Las always been regarded as one of the pillars of that denomination, and his place will be hard to fill. As president of the Ladies' Work Party, Mrs Bowe's departure will be a distinct loss to that body, as well as in many ottier ways.

Where It Came Off. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

Where It Came Off. A few weeks ago a sale of horses took place at a well-known reposi tory, and one lot was as poor, bro ken-kneed a hack as was ever Been anywhere. The horse was brought forward, and the auctioneer, like most of his class, began lauding what he had to dispose of. j "Gentlemen," said he, "I have now the pleasure to bring before your no tice a really first-class animal. Will anyone make a bid of £100 for it ?" One of the onlookers made a first bid of £2. j "Really, gentlemen, this is too j bad ; an offer of £2 for such an ani I mal is simply ridiculous. Only the , day before yesterday it did its two j miles iii six minutes, and £2 is all I that is ottered for it. Going for £2 ! I Going for the mean sum of £2 ! For the last time—gone!" The purchaser took the sorry brute away, and was not long in ascertain ing that, in place of doing its two miles in sis minutes, it could not do one in an hour. He went back furi ously to the auctioneer, and asked j him if he did not say...

SOME ABBREVIATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

SOME ABBREVIATIONS. "Zeps" has unquestionably caught j on as the popular shortening of j "Zeppelins." But it seems highly im- j probable that the contraction will j be adopted by precise folk even in • conversation, or become familiar in j print without the inverted commas. ; There is a deliberate flippancy about j it. But the principles which prevail | in the case of such contractions work ! most arbitrarily. Some shortenings , are inevitable. "Battleship" and j "destroyer" have become official, in ] place of "line-of-battleship," and' "torpedo-boat-destroyer." But why j is it that the strict still draw the line at "bus," while they would J never dream of insisting upon "cab- ; riolet" aud "caravan," instead of! "cab" and "van"? • I In Russia a man may not marry more than four times. "Zounds" was a mediaeval oath, or j exclamation, contracted from "God's j wounds." ^ •

Labour-saving Implements [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 6 June 1916

Labour-saving Implements At the suggestion of the Northern Agricultural Advisory Council, the Professors of Engineering and of Ag riculture in Armstrong College have prepared the following The implement question is now of the greatest importance, in view of the increased scarcity and cost of labour and of horses. Although the need may be urgent, recently intro duced implements should not be pur chased by farmers unless they are thoroughly satisfied of their %'alue and have seen them at work uncter conditions like their own. The far mer who can do simple repairs to implements, and who chooses his im plements well, has an enormous ad vantage over his neighbours.
