GOD STEAKS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 September 1916
GOD STEAKS. Required : Three or four slices cf j cod, and brusli them over with salad, oil. Put the yolks of two eggs in a basin, add some pepper and salt, and stir well with a wooden spoon. Then add very gradually more oil, until the preparation is about as thick as good cream. Mix in a few coarsely chopped capers, or some minced pickled gherkins, and a few drops of vinegar. Cook the fish steaks on a gridiron, or in a prying pan. Serve very hot. The sauce is sent to table cold, as mayonnaise sauce is served with hot salmon. It is not claimed for this method of dressing cod that it is very economical, but again it is not extravagant, and in middle-class homes both oil and eggs are usually to hand. In many cases such adjun cts as these may be termed the "em broidery" of the cook's art. If it render the dishes to which it is ap plied more nourishing as well as more toothsome, such embroidery cannot be set, down as entirely value less.

INTERESTING ITEMS. . 1 The pope may not go outside the precincts of the Vatican. A French scientist once spent forty five years of his life, and about £15, 000, in attempting to produce a blue roBC by artificial culture. Great Britain is growing in size.

BEER DUELS. HUN WHO DRANK 100 MUGS A DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 September 1916
BEER DUELS. * HUN WHO DRANK 100 MUGS A DAY. The beer-drinking capacity of the Germans is proverbial To quote Henry de Halsalle, the author of "Degenerate Germany" :— "The German beer-drinker drinks hoggishly ; he drinks not to slake his thirst, but afterwards to boast of his capacity in swallowing gallons of liquor." M Halsalle relates how the Munich newspapers, not long, ago, recorded with appreciation the death of an old man of eighty who had often been known to drink 100 mugs of beer (about ninety pints) in one day. In the same town there is a beer shop which became famous some time ago through a noted beer-drinker at tending there regularly at noon, crowds of persons would assemble to watch his performance. Having plac-' ed twelve mugs of beer on a table in front of him as the clock of an ad jacent church began to strike twelve, the beer-swiller would gulp down the contents of a mug at each stroke of the clock. Hearty cheers greeted him; to consumc twelve muggs of beer -while th...
THE THIMBLE-RIGGER. ON THE WAY FROM NEWMARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 September 1916
- THE THIMBLE-RIGGER. ON THE "WAY PROM NEWMARKET. Our grandfathers and fathers knew him well—by sight* at all events— but I venture to think that to the majority of us he is a stranger—well as we know the unwelcome aspect of his foster-brother, the three-card gen tleman. I had often heard and read of the thimble-rigger, but I never had the good fortune to meet him in the flesh until one day, when returning to London from Newmarket. Whip ping a cushion off one of the seats, he placed it, wrong side up, across his knees ; then, from the mysterious .depths of his pockets,' he produced four articles, which he described as follows : "My lords and gentlemen," he be gan, filing his ferretty eyes upon a trio of Cambridge Undergraduates, who sat facing him, "this little ob jeck which I bring forrard for your inspection ain't a vanishing- cvapor ating-sort-of-filagree-microbe, but a real genuine common or garden pea, at one penny per pint of all respec table, grocers, or from D, if you has - ...
CAUGHT IN THE ACT! OUR NATURALIST, IN HIS HAPPIEST VEIN, WRITES OF A FEATHERED HUN. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 September 1916
■" CAUGHT IN THE ACT! ♦ OUR NATURALIST, IN HIS HAP 1 PIBST VEIN/WRITES OF A FEATHERED HUN. The dawn Beemed scarcely yet to have declared itself, yet somebody J was abroad. Through the indeter minate half-light a dark, body pass ed, with mysterious swish of wings, out to the open grass, where it set tled, and stood for a moment listen ing to the larks, whose steady carol ling in the dark eaBt seemed to sug gest that, they had never been to sleep at all. Suddenly it—he—made a quick run forward, pecked, tugged back on his hind toes, and came away with a worm. Then the light grew, revealing him as a common song-thrush, very busy swallowing a worm. And almost in the same inBtant a longish, reddish shape protruded itself right up at him out of, apparently, the bare ground. It was as if the thing had shoi up through a trap-door, and its movement was so quick as to go fas ter than the eye. The thrush did not fly. There was no time, perhaps. He did not appear to look round. Seemed no time fo...
Dangerous Casks. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 5 September 1916
Dangerous Casks. Only the Government know how many thousands of gallons of nitro glycerine, the famous explosive, .have been manufactured lately. Nitro glycerine, though an explosive, is rarely used by itself, . being mixed with gun-cotton to form blasting gelatine, or with a certain earth to make dynamite. Huge quantities of the explosive liquid are kept in casks, and the wood of these casks becomes ao high ly explosive through being soaked with the liquid that a kick will blow | them to pieces. It is not safe to use the empty casks again for refilling them with the explosive, ... nor can they be used in any, other way, even for firewood. There is. only one thing, indeed, that can be done, and that is to ex plode the casks. They are placed on waste ground and usually exploded by means of a rifle bullet fired into j them. Very little of the cask re mains after the explosion.
