The polished trickster was quite at home in the company be found himself in, but was, 6ad to say, very absent of mind, the same being destined to prove his downfall. Presently the hostess came bustling up with the decanters and red wine. "What will you take, Mr. Spudd ?" she asked politely. Mr. Spudd (with his mind very much on the business iu hand): 'Ths spoons, please." He had been fishing patiently for several hours without a bite, when a small urchin strolled up. "Any luck, guv'nor ?" lis called out. "Run away, boy," growled the an gler in gruff tones.

THE EARS OF THE NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 22 August 1916

THE EARS OF THE NAVY. ' • t " By JOHN'S. MARGERISON. Ten years ago there waB no such thing as a wireless operator—borne on a ship's books as such—in the whole of the Royal Navy ; nowadays there i6 hardly a ship that floats the White Ensign at her stern but has one or two—sometimes six or seven —among her complement. Wireless telegraphy, in its naval infancy, was regarded as a side-line .for signalmen, and exponents of the latter art, who qualified themselves to take charge of a wireless installation,.added a shilling a day to their y-ay for so doing. But, in 1907. the powers that were decreed that from henceforth wireless was to be a thing trait from the signal branch, an A the oper ators should be men specially trained for their job, and not ultra-brainy specialists in another line. So tliey formed the voungest of sialls the Wireless Staff, and they l-rought out a special distinguishing badge so the man in the fleet-and the street —might know the >perator. And this gave the staf...

SOMNIFEROUS VERSE. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 22 August 1916

SOMNIFEROUS VERSE. Tearing along the street, my friend M: , who is a but-little-known poet and novel writer,' encountered me with flashing eyes and threatening mien. I stopped him and asked, "What ever is the matter?" "The matter is," he rejoined furi ously, "that I am going to the house to punch his head." "Whose head ?" "Why, that scoundrel's the painter J . Owing to a- personal grudge against me, he has made me ridicul ous in the face of the world." "How is that ?" "Why, I have just come from the Permanent Exhibition of Paintings. He has exhibited a picture there call ed "The Allegory of Sleep." A man is in an armchair with his head in clining on his breast, and his arms drooping. He is sleeping profoundly, and holds, clasped in his right hand, a half-opened book—the last volume of my poems, with my portrait ap pearing on the cover !" Bed-socks for pet dogs are one of the latest fads.
