Famous Novel on the Films—Metro Production of Jaffery at the Globe. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 6 January 1917
Famous Novel on the Films-Metro Production of Jaffery at the Globe. Final screenings will be given at the Globe this afternoon and evening of the Chain Invisible, and episode seven of the Crimson Stain Mystery. Emily Stevens is a talented actress and a beautiful woman. She will be seen to advantage on Monday in the Wheels of the Law.

Founded on W. J. Locke's famous novel of the same name Jaffery, to be submitted on Thursday is an out-of the way film. There is a wealth of excitement, throughout the 5,000 feet, but the sentiment and pleasing gallery of characters are never submerged. All the qualities of charm are maintained throughout. Eleanor Woodruff has a congenial role as Dora. A welcome novelty will be a Metro-Drew comedy, Their First, and the Australian Gaz ette will be included in a fine sup...

TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 6 January 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. 19171 It looks like a Big Gun year again. But during the holidays it has been good for the sharpshooters. "Cut out that blood-red battlefleld business," yells the editor, "it's your job to stick to the turf." "Yes, sir, but-but I'm sticking to it. What's that? You don't see it? No, sir; you never go to races--or you would understand-the readers wilI anyhow." Some rare old shells have lobbed in the Bar Vons' trenches since last we met in these pages, and poor old Pat. rick-Moses has crept from his dug-out limping very painfuily, and, of course, with a squeal on his lips. "Those bi cycle races again," we heard one of them muttering. Poor old bookies. They're still rid ing about in their motor cars and their solo game at the club is for a heap more than the odd coppers which you and I and the rest of us may gamble with at tram check poker in a ride to the city-but they must have th-ir little grumble. "We've got no hope," said one chap the other day. "Then why keep go ing...

More Calves than Bullocks Killed at Richmond Abattoirs—Pork Chops Increase in Favor. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 6 January 1917
More Calves than Bullocks Killed at Richmond Abattoirs-Pork Chops Increase in Favor. When Mr. Mark Morris, principal partner in the firm of Morris and Wil kins, wholesale butchers, decided to transfer his "killing" department from the Richmond abattoirs to Flemington it was unfortunate for the Richmond Council. They lost a good tenant. The sole reason for the transfer was that Mr. Morris was carrying on a large business at Flemington, and by confining all operations of his firm to the one place considerable economy was effected in cartage and droving expenses. Three years ago there were 137,783 sheep killed at Richmond abattoirs; last year there were only 71,408. Other killing operations fell in like proportion, notably lambs froft 41,116 to 18,499, calves from 10,466 to 7,588, bullocks from 9590 to 4168 and cows from 2143 to 1696. Pork has evidently increased in popularity in Richmond, or is it that more attention is now devoted to the killing of pigs at the abattoirs. The figures ...

KEEPING FIT. What a Man Should Do After He Is Forty. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 6 January 1917
KEEPING FIT. What a Man Should Do After He Is Forty. Why do so many men over forty break down? Vital statistics show that an alarming percentage of men who have passed the age of forty, and who ought to live to ripe old age, begin to fail rapidly and die, many before they reach fifty, and after fifty the death-rate increases out of proportion to the mere advance in years. Leading physicians have found out from census reports and mortuary statistics that the chief causes of deaths after forty are heart disease, arterio-sclerosis, Bright's disease, and certain diseases of the nervous sys tem. Now, these diseases are intiin ately related to one another, and have many causative factors in common, and, mark this, you men past forty, the two most common causes of these diseases are over-indulgence of the appetites and lack of outdoor exercise. Too much alcohol, too much to bacco, too much fast living-we do not need a doctor to tell us what they will do to a man past forty. But lis ten to ...

Up to the Donkey. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 6 January 1917
Up to the Donkey. Sandy Macleod and his donkey were well known in the country which gave them birth, and the two were on very friendly terms. Sandy would not have exchanged his 'cuddy" for the best thoroughbred in the land. Going out for a ride one day recent ly, he resolved to make his "moke" jump a stream. He applied the whip and the animal galloped to the edge of the bank and then stopped so sud denly that Sandy was thrown to the other side of the water. : When he had sufficiently recovered from the shock he rose and looked the donkey in the face. "Verra weel pitched," he said, "but hoo are ye gaun tae get ower yersel'?" SA preacher, accompanied by two charming young ladies, stood entranc ed by the beauties of a passing stream. A fisherman, happening by, and mis taking his occupation, said: "Ketchin' many, pard?" "I am a fisher of men," replied the preacher, with dignity. "Well, you sure have the right bait," replied the fisherman, with an admiring glance at the girls. "I have ju...

If Mr. Sheahan has any special claims or qualifications outside "yap," and he or some other body will publish them in your next issue, I shall be happy to consider them in giving my vote; but up to now it's Ted Cotter's.

BIRDS OUTDO AEROPLANES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 6 January 1917
. BIRDS. OUTDO AEROPLANES. SAlthough of recent years aviation has made such tremendous strides,-the :feats of present-day aviators -cannot be compared with those- of Nature's flyers-the birds; in speed, endurance, lifting and sighting power, birds beat aviators every time. A common swallow, for instance, can travel in the air at the rate of 120 miles an hour. The vulture when swooping on its prey cuts through the atmosphere at -nearly 150 miles an hour. Some time ago a swallow flew from Antwerp to Compiegne, a distance of 140 miles, in sixty-eight minutes, the flight being timed by observers who returned the bird's average rate of speed at. 128 miles an hour. The fastest an aeroplane has ever travelled is 108 miles -an hour,-- -and this speed was.only obtained by build ing"'.a freak machine, dangerous to handle. Then, again, birds can fly for twenty-four hours at a stretch with out descending, even in bisterocs weather. After eight or nine.hourc' continual flyifig an aviator is- wea...
