Records in "Spuds." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 August 1916

Records in " Spuds," 9 T ; A gardener, in Kent was planting potatoes, when he noticed a tuber that had thrown out an extraordin ary number of shoots. He .cut this potato into no fewer than twenty-three pieces, and »planted I each carefully. Each piece grew, and | when the crop was dug it was found that the siugle tuber had produced in all no fewer than 267 potatoes of a total weight of just over 301b. Even this is not ah absolute record. At the National Potato Show at the Agricultural Hall, England, in Nov. 1905, there was shown a basket of 222 potatoes grown from a single root, and these weighed 53tb. These, of course, are freak yields ; but the potato is, in truth, one of the most wonderful plants for giving gigantic returns. Some years ago, when the famous new variety, North ern Star, was making its first ap pearance, two growers in Lincolnshire invested £125 in purchasing five hun dredweight of the novelty. From this quarter of a ton they realised a crop j of 36 tons, each potat...

Eagles as Combatants. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 August 1916

Eagles as Combatants. Aeroplanes found their place in warfare eo quickly that it is hard to remember the many discussions aroused by the subject only a short time ago. Three years ago it was gravely suggested that an aeroplane could not be used against aeroplane, some method of destroying scouting or at tacking aircraft was necessary, and what better than trained eagles ? At Nice some officers trained six eagles to act as destroyers of aero planes. First of all they trained them to become accustomed to the noise of the engines and the whir of the propeller. The next thing was to make them attack. Accordingly dummy eagles were placed on aeroplanes, and the real ; birds encouraged to attack them as j rivals. This being accomplished, it became necessary to make the eagles tear the wings of the aeroplanes as well, which was done by means of email models. The officers who made the experiment, so we are told, were sure that if a large number of eagles were trained in this manner they coul...

Are Cats Clever? TRUE STORIES OF PUSSY'S WILY WAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 August 1916

Are Cats Clever ? TRUE STORIES OF PUSSY'S .WILY "WAYS. OatB are not nearly so stupid aa is popularly supposed, many of them having proved themselves as smart as any dog. For instance, a cat owned by a farm labourer used to go every even ing to meet his master as he return ed from work. Whenever the hour for its master's home-coming drew near the cat set out to meet him, although it was never given the slightest hint that the appointed time had arrived. The idea that cats are selfish and ungrateful was upset by a stray cat taken in by a kind-hearted family. The cat, which was practically starv ing when found, was well fed, and seemed quite contented with its new home, until one morning, when it disappeared. That evening, as the family were sitting down to dinner, the cat, run ning in, jumped on the table, and placed on the plate of the lady of the house a rat. It was evident that thereat had taken this way of show ing its gratitude. A pure-bred cat once had the mis fortune to break o...

Refusing Riches. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 August 1916

Refusing Riches. It is not an easy thing to say "No" to wealth when it is offered in handfuls, but there are people who have done it. In the 'eighties the beat-known and most popular actress in the world, perhaps, was Mary Anderson, an American who* was as good as she waB beautiful. At twenty-eight she married, and has never "since been tempted out of her retirement, except a little while ago, for a charity performance. In the hope of'inducing her to go on the stage again an enterprising Ameri can manager offered her sixty thou sand pounds for a season of thirty weeks—a fortune in itself. The lady refused. Calve was offered £4,000 a week to go on the vandeville stage. Her work was to consist of singing four i 6ongs—two at the matinee, and two in the evening—which works out at about £150 a song. She also refused. Jack Binns, who in the early days of wireless won world-wide fame by sticking to his post on a sinking liner and bringing help from the four quarters, was offered fabulous s...

"RATS." INTERESTING STORIES ABOUT THE GHOULS OF THE WESTERN FRONT. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 August 1916

"RATS." INTERESTING STORIES ABOUT THE GHOULS OF THE WESTERN FRONT. Tommy tells of the great rats that infest the trenches. Though there may be some exaggeration in the size and ferocity of the rodents des cribed in the yarns, there is no doubt that rats swarm in thousands from end to end of the lines in France and Flanders. It is, however, only comparatively recently that the numbers haveireach ed plague proportions,' and now the rats have become a formidable men ace, not only to the comfort ftut also to. the health of our men. Driven from the many ruined farms, blasted by the grim breath of war, the rats at first found plenty of food and shelter among the trenches. They have, however, increased in such j great numbers that their ordin ary food has become scarce, and they are now, it is said, eating the bodies in "no-man's land," the tragic stretch of ground lying between the opposing trenches. v Their ghoulish feeding makes them all the greater peril to the health of our soldiers. ...

I have been quite safe here in hospit able Switzerland with my dear good frleads, but what I have suffered mentally no words can express never could I have imagined that I could be so unhappy.

Mysteries. of the Night. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 August 1916

Mysteries, of the Night. In Ceylon the devil bird is a con stant source of alarm. No one knows what species of bird it is, but throughout the night its cries are horrible and blood-curdling. The natives regard .the cry of this mys- j terioua bird as a sure presage of death. In the desert of Gobi, which di vides the mountainous snow-clad plateau of Tibet from the milder re gions of Asia, travellers assert that at night they have heard sounds high up in the sky, as of the clashing of arms and sounds of martial music. If travellers fall to the rear, or get separated from the caravan, they hear themselves called by name, If they go after the voicc they get lost in the desert. Sometimes they hear the tramping of horses, and, taking it for their caravans, are drawn away, and wandering from the right course are hopelessly lost. The peo ple believe that these sounds are pro duced by the spirits that haunt the desert. The Irish banshee may be traced to the owls, as the description of the cry...

She Took It. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 August 1916

She Took It. A lady once had considerable trouble with her servants, who were rather too fond of beer. So, when she engaged the next girl, she told her that Bhe would have to take the pledge. On the first morning of her duties her mistress had to go out shopping, and it was not until the afternoon that the lady remembered the injunction to her servant. Call ing downstairs, she asked :— "Did you take that pledge as I told you, Jane ?" "No, mum," replied Jane ; "but I will." ' While her mistress went back to her room to dress for dinner, Jane looked about, and, seeing a bundle on the hall-stand (a new suit just brought home for the master), she ran out of the house with it. Ten minutes later Jane stood by the side of her mistress with a half-sovereign and a pawnticket in her hand. "If $ou please, mum," she said, the man wouldn't lend any more, as he dii not know how much master paid for the suit ; but he said it was all shoddy, and he was sorry to find you were getting into low water,...

FREEDOM OF THE SEAS! [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 August 1916

FREEDOM OF THE SEAS! « , In general, says Prof. Albert Bush nell Hart in an authoritative paper, ] "the sea" means the great world communicating salt-water area, which is for convenience subdivided on maps into oceans and smaller bodies of water which communicate with each other and form together a part of the globe not included within the boundary of any country. This a^a is slightly pared down by the "maritime jurisdiction" of seabound countries, over a strip of Bea extending out three nautical miles from low-water mark. This commonly unmarked line is simply an extension of the boundary of every country having a sea front. Iu many respects this belt is too narrow. If, as is generally /supposed, it was in tended to be drawn at the farthest range of a cannon posted on shore, it no longer serves the purpose, for an • enemy may lay miles beyond and still be within striking distance. The most serious attempt to stake off sections of the open sea was the long-continued assertion by Grea...
