Great Inventor's First Try. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 August 1916

Great Inventor's First Try. ♦ Henry Ford liaB made his name famous with his motor-cars. Here iB the story of the great inventory first try at mechanical experiments. Rose Wilder Lane, to whom 'Henry Ford's Story* seems to have been re lated by some member of the imme diate family, declares that the most memorable event of Mr. Ford's youth was this incident of the experiment on the watch, for it crystallised his boyish interest in things mechanical I and led him to prosecute his investi gations more persistently than over. It occurred on a Sunday, the one day of the week that was torture to the youth. As we read : On this particular Sunday morning , Henry was more- than usually rebel lious. He was not sullen about it. He merely remarked frankly that he ! hated their old Sunday, anyhow. j Mother and father and the four children sot out for-church as usual. At the hitching-posts, where William Ford tied the horses before going in to church, they met their neighbours, the Bennetts. Will...

About Boomerangs. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 August 1916

About Boomerangs. Boomerangs are coming into fas hion in England. The introducers of this new craze are, of course, our Cornstalk soldiers who have learnt the art from the na tives of Australia, says an English writer. An Australian with whom the writer was conversing the other day exploded some of the boomerang fables which have got abroad among the credulous. ; Thus it • is not true that the Australian black throws the boomerang with ,his back to the ob ject he desires to hit. Of course, an expert thrower can cause his boomer ang to shoot behind him after a short preliminary excursion in front, and come very near a given object ; but if he wants to hit anything, he doesn't fool away his time with the return boomerang. Again, it has been said that a flock of cockatoos is sometimes pursued at every turn by this erratic weapon, which strikes down a dozen or more, and then returns to the hand that threw it. True, if he saw -a flock of birds flying by him in a straight course, an exper...

Japanese Superstitions. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 August 1916

Japanese Superstitions. The Japanese have many curiotfs superstitions about animate, the chief among which is their belief in I the supernatural power of foxes, j There are numberless shrines, indeed, | dedicated to foxes in Japan. The badger is another animal fear i ed by the superstitious Japanese j mind; It is believed to have power* to annoy people, and to be able to I turn into a priest at will. | The crying of weasels and the bay ing of dogs-are considered evil omens and such insignificant-happenings send* a shiver over the believers. In Japan a light-coloured mouse in the house is a sign of happiness. If a spider falls from the ceiling in the morning it brings pleasure, but if at night, it is thought to be very un- • lucky. To see a centopede at night 'means happiness in Japan. "There is nothing, harder than get ting out of a bad habit." "Yes^ there is—getting into a-good one." Tommy saw a small tug towing a large ship, and heard the tug whistle loudly. "Oh, papa !" he cried,...

Buddha's Tooth. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 August 1916

Buddha's Tooth. 1 At all times of the year in Kandy, Ceylon, may be seen followers of Buddha making ^ their way to the ' great Mahigawa Temple, the "Palace of the Sacred Tooth." in order to lay offerings and flowers'at the shrine of the founder, of their religion. En tering the temple, they pass into a small room, some 12ft. square, in which is kept the famous tooth of Buddha. The chamber is lighted by two lamps which have not been al lowed to go out for years. The walls are splendidly decorated, and the ves sel—called the Karundua—containing the tooth, stands on a massive sil ver table amidst a gorgeous array of jewels and other valuable gifts. The Karundua is draped with muslin, be neath which is a silver dome, studded with gems, and under this is a dome of gold, beautifully carved and liter ally encrusted with precious stones. Two similar coverings lie below them and beneath these is a small case of gold, in which, on leaves of gold lotus, reposes the tooth itself. This relic, ca...

German Wooden Boots. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 August 1916

German Wooden Boots. Leather has risen enormously in price in Germany, . bo much so that the cost of all leather articles has more than doubled.- This increase in the price of leather has hit the Ger jmans very hard in the case of boots and shoes. In most towns now, for the poorer people, all sorts of sub stitutes for leather are being Bold. Felt is replacing the leather in the uppers of boots, while another fa vourite substitute is sailcloth warm ly lined. Wood is being UBed for soles, and, according to the German paperB, a method has been fouud of making the wood flexible, so doing away with the. noise that clogs and wooden shoes generally make. The price of these new wooden boots and Bhoes is from 3s. to 5s. a pair, an immense saving on leather ones. But they don't last half as long.

The Greatest Toy Market. —.——_ NEW YORK'S ANNUAL VOLUME OF TRADE £15,000,000 WORTH. New. York is by far and away the greatest toy market. The annual vol umn' of trade at wholesale price is £15,000,000, and of this a large part is shipped out of the country, mainly to the great fairs of Europe and to Asia. j In the mechanical toys and in toys made of iron, tin, lead, and brass, New York has ranked first as the world's largest market for twenty years. More recently the local toy in terest has branched out in building | wooden toy-making factories in the lumbering regions, where much of the refuse from sawmills makes fine stock for toymakers and can be obtained at 6uch low prices that European makers of wooden toyB cannot com pete against the larger producers of American wooden toys who push trade throughout Europe and Asia.

Records in Murder Trials. LEGAL TANGLES IN CAPITAL CASES. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 August 1916

Records in Murder Trials. « * LEGAL TANGLES IN CAPITAL OASES. [ For the third time the other day a jury was unable to agree as to the guilt or innocence of Samuel Hermon, indicted at Downpatrick Assizes on the charge of murdering his stepson, W. Quinn. This sets up a new record in abor tive murder trials. Never before has an accused person been tried three j times for murder without a decision being arrived at, and only once be j fore has it happened that three trials | have been necessary in any one mur der case. • In this latter case however, the prisoner was found guilty on his third trial, and was duly hanged. Curiously enough, too, this series of trials also took place in Ireland, the accused being Sub-Inspector Montgo mery of the R.I.C. His victim was a man named Glass, residing at New ton-Stewart. ^ The murder, an * exceptional brutal one, was committed in June, 1871, and it was not until August, 1873, more than two years later, that Montgomery was finally brought to the scaf...

"IN THE FORE-TURRET." "SO LONG AS A MAN IS LEFT ALIVE AT A GUN, SO LONG MUST THAT GUN BE FOUGHT." [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 29 August 1916

" IN THE FORE-TURRET.'* ——♦ "so long 'as a man is left alive at a gun, so long must that gun be fought." By JOHN 8. MARGERISON. The last notes of the bugle rang out clear and shrill on the cold morning air, and immediately a thousand men became galvanised with quick, pulsating life. On the forecastle thirty-seven of them made a dive at the great grey turret, and commenced to clear away. The men whose duty it was to see the outside clear took the stoppers—tampions— out of the gun muzzles, raised the leather flaps that prevented sea-water rushing in through the space between the revolving and the standard struc tures, hoisted ofT the tops of the sighting hoods and- lowered hatches and skylights into place. Inside the gunlayers clambered to their positions at the right and left telescopic sights, while the sight setters strapped on telephone head pieces, ready to receive the orders that would presently come up from the transmitting station far below. Numbers One hastily unlocked steel ...
