CHAPTER XXI. sottit.oay axn Song, IB YL arched her eyebrows, and looked up at hiru. A touch of coquetry must hare been innate within her, or she would have been unable to call forth such a coquettish air and glance. 'That is very strange, is it not?' she returned, mockingly. ' But what is stranger still is that you should wish to do so. Doyou not think that when one understands a person so thoroughly that there is nothing further to be under stood, that that person becomes a bore ? I do.' ' . He laughed. ■ ' Perhaps you are right,'he replied, 'though .1 am ex tremely doubtful if you would become a bore, even if I did understand you.' ' Oh, yes, I should,' she returned. ' I am uot in the least different from other people.' ' I am sorry to contradict you, but you are very different,' said Captain Dar rington. ' And what is more, you know quite well that I think that you arc different.' His feeling of compunction had de pr rted. It had not been more agreeable than such feelings general...

Punishing Dish[?]est Tradesme Short Weight, etc. Other Methods Proposed, [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 9 June 1916

PaoiUHBg Obhwest Trades ntf Short Weight, etc. 0!ber Method; Proposed, It is singularly anomalous that, while a tradesman oaay be punished lor-'having incorrect scales, light weights, and fraudulent measures, there is-no Jaw by which he can be punished for fraudulently giving less weight eiid«' shorter . measure than is asked for 'and paid for by the buyer. The buyer may have a civil remedy by an ac'ion at law to xecoyer che'amoant by which he has been defrauded, but the seller in such cases commits no offence which will render him liable to a public prosecution by the police or by the Unioir Inspector, except in regard to the sale of bread, coal, and fire wood. The Managers of the Western Surburbs Union, from time to time receive complaints that in purchasing, say, a tot- quarter of niuttoo, S buyer is charged say, for 91bs., but on re-weighing it at home he finds he has received l^lbs, lib,, or i^lb. less than that weight.

Flight From Serbia. A LONG PANORAMA OF HORRORS. A terrible story'of the flight of the Serbian population before the &dv®nc~ jing German-Austrian forces is told by an Edinburgh lady on the staff of I one of the British hospitals. She says "Dante never conceived anything to equal in horror the sights and sounds we have been through, and those o us who have come through it wi 1 never forget the sights. On the main road from to where I had j my , first view of the fleeing multi tudes, there was one never-ending stream of terrified women and chil dren and old men, varied here and there by a broken-spirited and de jected straggler from the fighting ranks, who crawled along with sham ed mein, as though he were conscious that he was out of place in that panic-stricken throng. Just beyond the road becomes a mountain track, rough and rising up ward with a gradient that 6orely i taxed the strength of the fugatives. j The snow had fallen overnight, and ! it was in a bleak, biting cold s...

Tale of Three Nations. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 June 1916

Tale of Three Nations. Some gentlemen were once dining together at an hotel, when the con versation turned upon the character istics of different nationalities. "Now," said one of them, "here are three waiters. I will put to each of them the same question, and will wager a bottle of wine they will give an entirely different answer." ' ■ "Agreed," "Now, Tom," as the first entered' with the soup, "what would you take to sit outside~T;he dome of St. Paul's all night ?" "A guinea, sir," answered Tom, with business promptitude. Enter Sandy with the second coursc the same question being'asked. Sandy (cautiously), "An' what", wael ye gie ?" Enters Pat with third course.'Now, Pat, what would you take to sit out side the dome of St. Paul'8 all. night?" "Faith, and I'd take a bad cowld !' The gentleman won the wager. The term "cash" really, applies to coined money, Bank of England notes and other "legal tender," but it is frequently used as including shares, cheques, aud other securities whic...

Saluting Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 June 1916

Saluting Soldiers. Officers, bQth naval and military, are representative's of the King, and as such are legally entitled to a sal ute from private soldiers and civili ans. In the caBe of civilians, how ever, this' right is waived, as it would be obviously impossible to en force, it. To be strictly correct, the civilian should always raise his hat before - addressing an officer, and the officer should return the compliment with the most rigidly correct mili tary salute as a representative of His Majesty the King. Another point of etiquette civilians should bear in mind is the mode of "address to officers. All officers above captain's rank are addressed by. their titles—Col&nel So-and-so, Major So and-so—but lieutenants and second lieutenants ^ are only entitled to "Mister,".'and in writing "Esquire" ! is theirs by. law. |# Civilians should always salute the regimental colours of any troops by raising the hat. !

How to Tell a Liar. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 June 1916

How to Tel I a Liar. , ♦— When a man is telling a lie he breathes differently from when he is telling the truth. .The difference was j discovered by means of some te6ts I made upon students by Professor Ben | ussi of Graz. f He prepared cards bearing letters, figures, and diagrams and distributed 'these among his pupils. These were ! required to describe the cards cor j rectly, except in certain cases when the cards were marked with a red star, and the students receiving them were required to describe them falsely. Each student was watched carefully by his fellows, who, ignor ant of the nature of the card, tried to judge froni his manner whether he was telling the"1 truth or not. The watchers were unable to judge with' any-certainty. Under the direction of Professor Benussi the time occupied in inspira tion and expiration was measured, and the measurement was taken again .immediately after he finished. It was found that the utterance of a; false statement always increased and the ut...

Animals Under Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 13 June 1916

Animals Under Fire. Bombardments affect diSerent ani mals in different ways. Doge, as a rule, show great distress when shells burst near them and howl piteously. On the other hand, they have been known to dash along the~front of a trench during infantry fire, barking and apparently enjoying the noise. Cats do not care whether they are shelled or "machined" as' long as they have a dry corner and food when they are hungry. There -have been instances of lost dogs and cats actually venturing into the British . trenches during an en gagement. Some of them liyed in cottages near the tiring-line—long since destroyed—and clung to the remnants of their homes ; others strayed a lo'ng distance. A nonde script dog, with an Armentiercs nd dress on his collar, turned up near Wytschaete early one morning, spent the day with a Territorial battalion, disappeared at dusk, and was never seen again. A West-country Yeomanry contin gent was adopted in the thick of a fight near Fortuin in May by a black, ...
