JAPANESE WRESTLERS. WHERE WEIGHT TELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 September 1916

JAPANESE WRESTLERS. WHERE WEIGHT TELLS. In this country, when a man of average height takes on girth until his weight runs up to three huntfred pounds or so, his friends have grave doubts about his condition and ad vise him to diet in order to bring back a slim elegance of figure. In Japan the contrary is true. If a man can carry three hundred pounds of flesh with any agility he is of the material from which heroes are manu factured, and if he can work up to the four hundred or four-hundred-and seventy-five pound notch, and becomes a wrestler, he is in the running for a championship. Wrestling is to the Japanese what boxing is to .us, and more. The populace goes crazy over it, and the magnates of the big game handle great sums in the way of gate receipts. The Tokio Wrestling Asso ciation controls the flower of Japan's heavy-weights, and at its head is a three-hundred-and-iifty-pound veteran, T. Dewanoumi, the holder of the championship for eleven years in suc cession—a record feat. ...

NO WONDER. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 September 1916

NO WONDER. Mr. Brown, having bought a new bicycle of the most approved pattern, presented his old one to Dennis 0' Hara, who did errands and odd jobs ^ for the neighbourhood. "You'll find the machine useful when you're in a hurry, Dennis," he ; said. The young Irishman j$:a6 loud in his thanks, but regarded the machine doubtfully. "I think it will be a long time before I can ride it," he said. "Why ? Have you ever tried it ?" asked Mr. Brown. "I have," said Dennis, gloomily "I tried oiie for three weeks. what with practice night and morn ing I never got as I could balance myself standing still, let alone ridins: on it !" When a Chinaman desires to mar ry, his parents intimate that fact to the professional "match-maker," who thereupon runs through the list of her visiting acquaintance*, and select* one whom she considers a fitting brid« for the young man.

Smaller and Fewer Teeth. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 September 1916

Smaller and Fewer Teeth, That our teeth are becoming pro gressively smaller and fewer is made manifest by a study of human javrs running hack through the centuries to the earliest historic times, 6,000 j years ago, and even to those of pre j historic people whose bones have been dug up. That they are growing less durable is shown by their extreme liability to decay. The tendency to a ] reduction in the number of teeth is shown by the departure of the third j molars. Tftfcse "wisdom teeth," as they are called, four in number, are in many individuals missing or under sized and irregular ; or they may, in other instances, fail to "erupt." Evidently they are destined to dis appear entirely. And because they are no longer required for use Na ture is making them of such poor material that commonly they start to decay as soon as" they appear. Already there are signs that other teeth, such as the lateral incisors, will follow the same route. Our teeth are merely tools. They are not equi j v...

Worked Two Ways. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 September 1916

Worked Two Ways. ! A rather amusing episode occurred between a United Free Church minis ter and his baker, who happened to be a member of his church. ; The minister called , to say. that the "store" was selling its bread a. penny cheaper, and as he must buy in the cheapest market, he would close his account with him. —' Not to be outdone, the baker sent on Saturday night, while the church was being cleaned, to'haye his cush ions and books removed, ^.and also procured -two of Spurgeon's sermons for twopence. On Monday morning the minister called on the baker and said : "Good, morning,. Mr. S——. Is any thing wrong, anybody ill, any mis fortune befallen you, or what?" "Naething that I ken o'." answer ed f the. baker, placidly. "Wejre a' weel eneuch."

Protection Against Lightning. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 September 1916

Protection Against Lightning-. The United States Bureau of Stan dards has made an exhaustive inves tigation on the Hubject of protection against lightning. Some of the con clusions arrived/at are most interest ing. During each year, it is stated, there are approximately 1,500 persons affec ted by lightning Btroke in the United States, about one-third of this num ber being killed and tho rest sub jected to injuries which _ in many cases are permanent. Nine-tenths of these accidents occur in rural dis tricts. Such evidence as is available on the I effectiveness of lightning rods indi cates that, taking rods -as they come J in - the - general run of- installations, | they reduce- the fire hazards-from lightning by 80 to 90 per cent, in tho cases of houses, and by as much as 99 per cent, in the case of barns. The same is undoubtedly, true: in the case, of other buildings having characteris tics similar to those of barns and houses. In the event of equal and large numbers of unprotected ...

"SOME" TRAVELLING. There is a story of an old farmer 'in Kentucky who until recently had never seen a motor-car. The old chap was standing on the corner of the main street of a town in that State when a good-sized tour ing car came along at about thirty miles an . hour and slowed up just long enough to ■ take the r.orner on two wheels. The farmer's astonish ment was extreme. He watched the disappearing car with bulging eyes and open mouth. Then, turning to a (bystander, he remarked I "The hosses must sholy have been jtravellin' some when they got loosa from that gen'leman's kerridge !"

When Paper Runs Short. AMUSING MAKESHIFTS IN JOURNALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 September 1916

When Paper Runs Short. 1 . • AMUSING MAKESHIFTS IN ..JOURNALISM. When a man gives his mind; to the publishing of a newspaper he seldom allows himself to be thwarted by a mere lack of the conventional ma terial that goes to its making. In Ntbe ingenuity of his devices, indeed, he need-not blush in the presence of the most resourceful of "Heathen Chinee3." In armed camps, with bat tle raging fiercely in his ears, in be leaguered cities through which fa mine and disease stalk, when' "his laBt sheet of white paper is exhaust ed be is seldom at loss to find a sub stitute to serve his purpose. During the American Civil' War newspapers probably assumed the most varied and remarkable forms they have ever known, at a.time when not a sheet of white paper was to-be had "for love or money." When the defence of Richmond was at its most desperate stage, and paper and black ink were .exhausted, the Con federate newspaper still appeared, by the expedient of commandeering all the white handkerchiefs...

UPSET HIM. Two men - were heard conversing near the pavilion of- a well-known cricket-ground. "I've never missed seeing a match for ten years except once," said ons who was pulling away at a well seasoned clay pipe, "and that w.ib when my old woman died." "You don't say so !" exclaimed th» other, in a tone of surprise. "Yes," replied the first speaker. "1' was just getting ready to go to the match, when my old girl says, 'Jack, I do feel had !' Of course, I went for some brandy, but she would not look at it. So then I sends my lad, Tom, for the doctor ; but when he came, bless me if she worn't dead.' He paused, sighed, and with tears starting to his eyes, added :— j "Yes, old man, it did.upset me—a missing that match !"

Love's Messenger. [Newspaper Article] — Maldon News — 19 September 1916

Love's Messenger. From "Australian Gum Leaves," by Muriel Beverley Cole. Last night, the sun was setting With a crimson rose at its heart, And I found myself almost forgetting That we are bo far apart, For a golden sunbeam crept to my feet And whispered softly to me : "Hast thou a message to send thy love ? I can take it for thee." So I kissed my hand to that kindly beam, And sent my heart to thee With-the last, last spark of departing day It fled o'er the western sea. And I know that west of that setting, sun Thy morrow is softly dawning, And the first bright beam "Ilhat disturbs thy dream, ^ Shall 'give thee my kiss in the morning ; My heart and kiss in the morning. rr;.-v v; ^

COMPLETE'SHORT STORY.

As the road was infested.; with robber bands of Kurds, I felt j decidedly uncomfortable at the pros- j pect, but it was possible that a Tur- . kish cavass, or guard, might get me j through safely.. Certainly such an es" ■ cort would be better than none, and . so I went to the proper Turkish offi cer and demanded a cavass for the j journey. { fie received me with _ Oriental po liteness, but graciously informed me j that he could furnish me with no j cavass that day, as all were other- , wise engaged. |...

With a chill that went through her from head to foot, she realised the outrageous villainy of which she pos sibly, if not probably," had been made the victim. The seaman still held her by the arm, and to him she turned, pale even through the colour that darken ed her fair skin, and with her quiver ing lips and affrighted eyes evincing (he eoul-siclcening horror that was forcing itself upon her.
