HOW TO MAKE CANVAS WATER-PROOF. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 25 August 1916
! HOW TO MAKE. CANVAS WATER i x . PROOF. | A few good sheets of waterproof canvas axe invaluable on the farm for purposes ranging from the temporary covering of the wheat heaps, to use aa an overnight protection for a ve hicle. Two recipes for waterproofing the material" are : (1) Dissolve 1 oz. shredded soap in half a pint of hot water, add to it 7 lbs. of paint, apply it to the canvas, and allow to dry thoroughly (two or three days) ; apply another coat of the same paint, but without the soap, allow it to dry, then give a third coat. , When treated thus the canvas will not crack or stick when folded up. This is used in the British Navy. (2) Dissolve i lb. ordinary yellow soap cut in pieces in a quart of boil ing water, then stir in a gallon of boiled linseed' oil, 6 lbs. yellow ochre, ! and 3 ozs. of terebene ; mix thorough- j ly whilst hot, but allow to cool be- ■ fore using. Tw0 or three coats will be ■ necessary. Dry in a strong draught not in the sun. I Every nation is alarmed...
CHAPTER X. AN ANALYSIS AND A DEDUCTION [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 25 August 1916
CHAPTER X. AN ANALYSIS AND A DEDUCTION , In the solemn silence of approach- | ing midnight, alone in the commodi- j ous chamber of his fine suburban home, a man ceaselessly paced to ; and fro, half-disrobed,v with sleepless eyes dilated and Btaring, with iips turned grey and bloodless, and "whose attractive features had* grown hag gard and worn in a single hour of solitude and fearful contemplation of the direful emergency confronting him. A man whose blindly-generous folly had wrought his own undoing, and' about whom there now .was en twined a network of criminal circum stances sufficient to crush him, and the slightest thread of which ho then was powerless to ireate. In the narrow and clonmy confines of a cell in the city prison a . usaa turned restlessly upon the small Iron cot which the place afforded—a man writhing in resentment of his en forced detention ; e man with blood inflamed and features hardened, by passionate* hatred of the one w|^) had caused' his arrest ; a man as,s...
CLEARING BRACKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 25 August 1916
CLEARING BRACKEN. ♦ How to get rid ol bracken fern is a question that a correspondent in an exchange replies to by saying "Cutting the bracken is of little use. Cutting seems to bn simply pru ning them to promote their growth. The same with burning. The mors they are burnt the quicker and thick er they grow. We And that bruisin? is the effective system with a hard roller made by the local blacksmith, encircled • spirally with angle iron. The process is simply to keep pasBin; this roller, loaded to sufficient weight over the brackens as often as they show new growth, and eventually this kills them right out." "Not cutting them in the height of the spring, and only once in the year," another correspondent writes, "may be useless ; but cut them 20 times a year if they need cutting that often ; in fact, cut them as often as you can get a hit at' them, with the fernhook, 60 that the sun can shin? fair on the grass to sweeten it, and the cattle will help keep them down with their hoofs." ...
UNIFORM QUALITY IN BUTTER AND CHEESEMAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 25 August 1916
UNIFORM QUALITY IN BUTTER - AND CHEESEMAKING. T (By 0. W. Walker-Tiadale, F.C.S., in "Hansen's Dairy Bulletin.") - The chief point in the successful manufacture of butter, or cheeae, is to make these dairy products of uni form quality at all times. In order to effect this, the value of .the judi cious us® at good starter and rennet cannot bo over-estimated. The flavour of finished butter de pends very largely upon the flavour and condition of the cream at the time of churning. When cream is churned at different stages of ripe ness or sourness from time to jtime, the resulting butter cannot always be alike, .and in order to remedy this, the cream nmst be properly ripened. Cream is considered ripe and ready for churning when it has soured to the extent that it contains from 0.4 to 0.5 per cent .of lactic, acid, is of a clean, sharp acid flavour, and a smooth silky character. It is of the utmosrt importance to get the cream in this condition previous to churn ing where successful resul...

CHAPTER IX. EXTREMES MEET. The observant eyes • of Mollie. Ma ginnis liad fallen on the woman out side. B Unsteady steps approaching behind her over the pavement*, together with the sound 61 men'B coarse voices in coarser alterqatiop, were driving Edna Bardolph to Beek immediate shelter in the miserable office. With the hood drawn low over her brows and her shawl folded close around • her,' ahe entered the place with an assumption-of boldness she in truth was far from feeling; Meet ing with a half-defiant frown of dis approval the unmannerly stare of the three roughs at the table, she at once approached the counter, back of which Mr. Mahon Maginnis still' was snoring loudly. The girl Mollie was already there, and, with a businesslike.look, was staring over the dog - eared register at the stranger. . "Evening, ma'am," she said, terse ly, by way of greeting.

PART FOUK. CHAPTER VIII. ANOTHER SIDE OF LIFE. It was not all darkness that un seasonable Christmas Eve. In the poorer streets of down-town festal enjoyments, such as they were, were longer maintained. ''Though shutters were up at the in numerable saloon windows, the lamps still were, burning brightly within, and ever and anon the cloesed doors were fearlessly opened for the pass ing of some more or less intoxicated patron one way or the other. The numerous dance halls on the Bowery were running full blast, in the doorways of which were rough and boisterous gatherings, men and women together, all in noisy dis course, in divers tongues and under the impulse of generous potations, and seeming to vie with the inferior music of the various places to which could make night most hideous. The illumined windows of the "all night chop houses and the low-class hotels cast a glow over the muddy pavements, the slush of the narrow streets, and threw into weird dis tinctness the mists that hung u...

Science and the Future of Mesopotamia. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 August 1916
Science and the Future of Mesopotamia. ♦ After the soldier the engineer will come to these "Morning Lands of History," and will restore the waste places of Mesopotamia. It will be' one of the romances of history if the British flag should now fly from Bag dad. "Marvellous as may be the result of bringing these ancient lands into touch with the centres of trade and civilisation, a still greater miracle may be worked by the application, on a scientific plan of water to the fertilo soil that has lain athirst for many centuries," says the "Scots man." "Here the wonder worker is no German savant or financier, but one of our own countrymen, Sir William Willcocks, who has done great service as an engineer and ad ministrator in Egypt, and whose brother, General Willcocks, was late ly in command of the Mesopotamia expedition. For years past he has striven to bring the project of res toring the traditional 'Garden of Eden' into practical shape. "Egypt has not only a past but a present ; while...

Poultry Pointers. • —:—♦ If day-old chicks have travelled, put thom in an old bicycle-cap by the fire, or in a cool oven with the door open, the minute they are un packed. Well-bred birds will produce eggs on less food than those of a common strain. A fowl's first meal of the day should be a hot one, winter and sum mer. If you have a good feeding system, giving satisfactory results, don't change.it ; a new diet may not suit, and the hens may refuse to take pn the old with such relish. - Travelled eggs must always be rested for twelve houra at leaBt be fore being set. Twenty-four • hours would be better when convenient. Travelled eggs stand much more chance of hatching if put under a hen instead of into an "incubator. The best position to raise chicks is on a fine grass turf in which there is plenty of white clover. j A good food for chicks is equal j parts of finely-kibbled wheat, finely kibbled maize, and rolled breakfast oats. Never let your fowls paddle about in jnud an.d slosh ;...
