The Breeding of Lions. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 8 August 1916
The Breeding of Lions, The recent birth of a litter of lion cubs iir the Scottish Zoological Gar dens is one of the most interesting occurrences that has taken place there, either regarded by itself or as forming the first of a probable suc I cession of similar events. In capti vity the lion seems to breed by far the most freely of the large cats, or, indeed, of any of the wild cats, and litters are produced not only in es tablished zoological gardens, but also quite frequently in travelling mena geries, though some institutions are much less successful than others in I this matter, owing, probably, to i there being something essential lack j ing in situation or treatment. The institution which has been successful far beyond all others in the breeding ; of lionB is the Zoological Garden at Dublin, which has become famous for its "lion industry," as it has been termed, and derives a considerable financial benefit from it. Dublin has sent lions—not only to collections in Europe and Am...
Early Cutting Tools. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 8 August 1916
Early Cutting Tools. . « j Among the relics coming from all ! parts of the world, says the author of a monograph entitled "Sharpen ing atones : History and Develop ment." issued by the Pike Manufac turing Co., of America, showing, the life, manners, and customs of pre historic races, sharpening stones are koften in evidence. The first stones would seem to have been merely out croppings of Bandstone or other rock possessing abrading qualities. In those early days it was doubtless : customary for primitive man to make frequent pilgrimages to the source of supply, for . the sake of keeping his cutting tools in good condition. Then came the desire to have these stones near at hand, that they might be available for immediate use, and large pieces were broken off and car ried or dragged away to considei'able distances. It will interest our tool specialists in the trade to know that the first written "record of the use of ( sharpening stones was found in the Bible in the 13th chapter of 1 ...

Marconi on Coming Warfare. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 8 August 1916
Marconi on Coming Warfare. -• The next war will most certainly be more scientific. Engines of des truction are bound to grow more enormous and fantastic, and Mar coni has recently stated that elec tricity has great surprises in store for us. Electricity has infinite power yet it has not yet been employed as au arm of destruction. "I don't say we shall see in the future battle fields without guns, rifles, grenades, or bombs, but theoretically it is pos sible. It is obvious that, if electrical apparatus could be invented to throw out waves such distances as to blow up powder, we should see some extraordinary things. One man placing two wires in. contact might blow up battleships at sea, muni tion depots and arsenals in a single minute. Suddenly, as though with a magic wand, ammunition boxes would blow up on the battlefield and shells explode in the very mouths of guns. Cartridges would spontane ously go off in the soldier's belt. This would mean a reversion to bayonet or sword fightin...

HOW CHESHIRE CHEESE IS MADE. —; i There are three different. modes of. cheese-making- followed in Cheshire, j known as (1) the early-rij>ening, (2) j the medium-ripening, and (3) the late ripening processes. ! The early-ripening method is gener- , ally practiced in the spring until the , middle or end, of April ; the medium j from that time until late autumn ; or until early in June, when the late ripening process is adopted and fol lowed until the end of September, changing again to the medium pro cess as the season advances. The late ripening process is not found to be suitable to follow either in the Bpring or late autumn. The utensils requisite are a milk vat, curd knives, curd mill, cheese moulds, cheese hoops, cheese stools, curd shovels," cheese presses, milk pails, pans, etc. The milk vat is an oblong vessel, about 20 inches deep and 30 inches wide, mounted on four wheels, and suited in size to the number of cows kept.

THE BANANA AS A WORLD. POWER. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 11 August 1916
THE BANANA AS A WORLD. POWER. j In a lecture on "Tropical Vegetable : Poods," delivered at the New York i Botanical Garden, and afterwards i published in the oflicial journal of the | garden, the lecturer, Mr. 1-1, IT. . Rusby, says "Of all the tropical j vegetable foods, indeed most impor tant of all vegetable foods, is the . banana, destined to become eventual ly the chief food of the poorer clas ses of the entire world. The ripe ba nana, while a delicious dessert fruit, is not adapted to use as a common food, by virtue of its strong and sweet flavour, and also its relative indigestibility. The same fruit, how j ever, boiled, baked, or roasted, when about three-fourths grown, has very , j much the flavour of a baked, potato, with scarcely any sweetness, and is nutritious, non-cloying, and perfectly digestible. The amount of this food .that can be grown on an acre per year is so much in excess of any other as to make any comparison with other crops rather ridiculous." As evidence o...

PART TWO—CHAPTER III. THE ItfAN WHO VANISHED. In a private dining rodm in Ver celli's suburban restaurant two men were seated. That the termination of their dinner, the remnants of which still " were on the table, had by no means ended their discussion was ap parent in the face of either ; for both were exceedingly pale, and a repast presumably begun in friendship was terminated in enmity, . openly and viciously pronounced. "We may as well speak plainly to the end, Mr. Elgin, and come to a final decision," one was saying, toy ing with the knife beside his plate. "I have told you precisely- how the matter stands, and its adjustment will rest entirely with you. That you loaned the hundred thousand dollars ; to Colonel Bardolph I suspected the moment that I heard he had. been able to raise that amount over all his other mortgages. He could not have produced further security, for a hundredth part of that sum. All that he possessed, and all that he could raise, had been invested in the B...

CHAPTER V. BROUGHT FACE TO FACE. They stood intently listening, the three in the reception room. For a moment only the joyous laughter of the young people in the distant room reached their strained ears. Through, the brilliantly-lighted hall and by the open door the tall figure of the but ler moved with stiff and silent so lemnity to answer the bell. The moment passed, and he return ed, halting sedately on the threshold. "A gentleman to see Colonel Bar dolph, madam," he said. "His card,, John ?" "He gave me no card, if you please, madam ; and when I told him that1 Colonel Bardolph was not at home, he said that his business was of seri ous importance, and asked if I would inquire where Colonel Bardolph could be found." "Serious importance !" echoed Mrs. Bardolph, with countenance growing pale and anxious. "Get the gentleman's name," said Edna, with strange abruptness. "I will withdraw," suggested Elgin, j "No ; wait. We may need" your ad- j .vice," protested Mrs. Bardolph. The butler...
CHAPTER IV. THE HOUSE ON RIVERSIDE DRIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 11 August 1916
CHAPTER IV; THE HOUSE ON RIVERSIDE DRIVE. ' Joy and sadness, pleasure and pain, life and death, the comedy and tra gedy of human existence—these tread close upon the heels of one another, oftentimes approaching stealthily and silently,, and not infrequently, turning the glory of midday into the gloom of darkest night almost "without ■warning. Both sunshine and shadow were in the house on Riverside Drivo — sun shine for the many, shadow for the one. At a desk, • in the solitude of her chamber, a charming apartment, adorned with exquisite feminine taste, the eldest daughter of Colonel Tho mas Bardolph was seated. She had turned twenty by nearly four years.
