" Moving " Stories. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 September 1916
" Moving " Stories. Of all the inventions in this age of advancement, few have been so con spicuous for rapid and continued pro gress as the cinema. Many of us will remember that but a few years ago the public went to the pictures by way of novelty, and that wiseheads of the legitimate theatre declared themselves apart from "all this mechanism." But now we find the cinema not only brought very near to perfection and being Bhown in the smallest of villages, but great actors and act resses being regularly portrayed "on the screens." This remarkable advance, however, has not been barren of interest, like some of our modern inventions have been. On the contrary, the rise of the cinema can take its place in the front ranks of human drama and ro mance—the kinds which have a won- i derful throb in them. | There was the case of a journalist who was sent by his editor to inter view a man who was about to sink many thousands of pounds in some theatrical venture. That was the days when the "no...
WISE DOG! [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 September 1916
WISE DOG ! There was an old lady who rented i furnished villa for the summer, and with the villa also went a large doe. In the sitting-room of the villa there was a very comfortable arm-chair. The old lady liked this chair tetter than any other in the house. But, alas ! she nearly always found the chair occupied by the large dog. Being afraid of the dog, she never dared bid it harshly to get out of the chair, as she feared that it might bite her : but instead, she would go to the window and call "Cat.8 !" Then the dog would rush to tha window and bark, and the old lady would slip into the vacant chair, quietly. - One day the dog entered the room and found the old lady in possession of the chair. He strolled over to th> window and, looking out, appeared very much excited, and set up a tre mendous barking. The old lady rose and hastened to the window to see what was the mat ter. Then the dog quietly climbed into the chair.

Chinese Pastimes. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 12 September 1916
Chinese Pastimes. — w Chinese boys and girls arc just as fond of toys and games as the chil dren of other lands, although to look at their solemn little faces you would hardly think so. The little Chinese boy has a big pockct in the front of his red pina fore that " he loves to fill with all sorts of things—bits of string, a top, coins, and especially candy. His BAveetmeats are very hard, . some of tliem like our rock, candy, but they taste good to him. He also likes the queer nuts, melonseeds, and bits of sugar-cane.that he buys in the street from a man who goes round with two baskets hanging from a pole that he carries across his shoulders. The "toys that the children buy, also from a man in the street, are generally cheap figures of animals or of human beings, made of clay or paper. . The. little Chinese girls play at "hitting the ball," . a game of which all of them are very fond. They bounce the ball on the floor with the palm of their hands and try to see how long they 'can ke...

CHAPTER XVI. THE REVENGE OF JERRY MOSS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 September 1916
CHAPTER XVI. THE REVENGE OF JERRY MOSS. | The seaman was not alone in his pursuit of the cabman. True to his I prediction, Edna Bardolph was his companion. His argument was based upon the same ground as suggested to Akers, and was by far foo plau sible and craftily presented for Edna long to demur while her lover'« safety still continued in the balance. Less than a minute after the cabman's de parture, the man and the woman there regarded as Captain John Meg line and wife passed together through the hotel office and out into the street. As the seaman had tacitly declared the situation presented scarce a lia bility, to suspicion. Edna Bardolph had voluntarily recognised him as her- husband, and both were total I strangers in the place,-ostensibly hav ing arrived on some vessel. Their im mediate and permanent departure would, therefore, be nothing extraor dinary, and in so far as the seaman knew, no human being could identify his acknowledged wife with Edna | Bardolph, or even suspect...
CHAPTER XV. THE ACME OF KNAVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 15 September 1916
' CHAPTER XV. THE ACME OF KNAVERY. Megline had leaned across the table and laid his heavy hand on the cab man's arm. "Ay, matie," he repeated ; "we'll have him there yet !" "But the woman" "Avast ! The woman—must be re moved !" Turning ghastly to the very lips, Akers sprang to his feet. He was trembling in every fibre. The possibi lity which the awful suggestion of the seaman awakened flashed upon him like a lurid • blaze of light. With Edna Bardolph for ever removed,with the single crime made a double crime, the situation was restored to that - upon which he first had calculated with such assurance. While the frightful thought■ still field him speechless, the low, villain ous growl of tiie seamaji again sound ed in his ears. "Dors it scare ye, matie ?" he de manded. "Harkee ! One thing's sar tin—it'» now her life or yourn. She must go under, or you—that's dead reckonln'.
