Sam the Sprucer. HE DISCUSSES THE HORRORS OF WARFARE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917

Sam the Sprucer. HE DISCUSSES THE HORRORS OF WARFARE. By F. W. Thomas. 'Wasn't my fault," said Sam, after it was all over. "A man that wilfully wears Weeping Willie whiskers, mutton-chops dated 1842, face-fins of the Early Victorian era, a man that decorates his dial with Dundeary Droopers in these hairless and en lightened days, deserves all he gets. I hate hair, jugged or otherwise, and mutton-chops are my special aversion. Hence the leg-pulling, and if I've said anything I ought to be sorry for, I'm glad of it. Amen!" In the beginning I found Sam in earnest whispered conversation with his hirsute acquaintance, and from the tremendous wink with which he greeted me I gathered it would be worth while to stop and listen. "No, sir!" Sam was saying. "I never could stand the sight of blood shed, and the horrors of war give me a headache. Every time my gun went off I used to jump into the air, and sometimes on a busy afternoon I wouldn't get down again for hours. My nervous system was al...

A LONG, LONG, LONG STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917

:;:A LONG, LONG, 'LONG STORY. Men in the country yearn For the streets of the town as they till; .. - But men of the city turn Their. thoughts to meadow and hill. Sailors, pent on the deep, Dream of houses and trees; But the landsmen - they envy keep. Their thoughts on the seven seas. Travellers long for home, And keep its memory green; But stay-at-homes would roam, With all the world between. Cheery our own hearth-,fires! . Pleasant our places: of birth:!- - ' Why do our hearts' desires Lie at the ends of the earth? Abram went up out of-r, .. Yet blame not the sons'bf Shem; The wandering foot'vas astir Thousands of years before them! Cain turned east in pursuit Of a star-eyed damsel of Nod! Adam, for lovelier fruit, Left his groves-and his God! -Daniel M. Henderson in "Collier's Weekly." .

Farcical Leniency in Local Children's Court—Wattle Tree Spoiler Let Off with a Caution. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917

Farcical Leniency in Local Children's Court-Wattle Tree Spoiler Let Off with a Caution. Vandalism in Richmond. Park has caused the controlling Trust consid erable concern. Seats have been stripped of their backs and bottoms and only the upright pegs left stand ing. Valuable wattle and other trees have been wantonly damaged. Com plaints were made to the police, and a reward of £2 was offered for in formation leading to the conviction of an offender. Last week a policeman caught a lad red-handed. The park keeper told the magistrates at the Children's Court that the damage done to a tree would require an ex penditure of at least ten shillings. The bench decided to make an ex ample of the boy. They told him that if he put 5/- in the poor-box it would prevent a conviction being recorded. Such is the court's idea of protecting the property of the public and encour aging policemen to chase offenders and bring them to justice. The lad, it may be added, is engaged full-time in a "war" indust...

Licensee Stabbed and Young Soldier Remanded on Murder Charge.—As Policeman, Mr. Robert Walker Was Well Known. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917

Licensee Stabbed and Young Soldier Remanded on Murder Charge.-As Policeman, Mr. Robert Walker Was Well Known. News of the death of Mr. Robert Walker, as a result of a stabbing af fray outside the Prince of Wales Hotel, Church-street, of which he was the licensee, caused something of a shock in Richmond. For over 20 years Mr. Walker had been a police constable in the district, and for a portion of that time acted as assist ant watchhouse-keeper. He retired from the force about three years ago, and became the licensee of the Prince of Wales Hotel. He was 49 years of age, and was reputed to be the owner of considerable property. He had been married twice. A widow and four children survive him. Arising out of the matter, Wm. Gruner, 19, a soldier, was remanded for a week at the Richmond Court on Thursday on a charge of murder.

WARMTH IN SNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917

WARMTH IN SNOW. Few of our readers would credit that the absence of snow would double the price of timber. The greater part of our common timber -comes from the forests of Canada, Scandin avia and Russia. All these countries suffer from a very severe winter. For nearly five months of the year their surface is buried deep under a mantle of snow, and the thermometer. in the heart of the greatest pine for ests not uncommonly falls to 30deg. below zero, i.e., 62deg. of frost. Snow is one of the best non-conductors of heat or cold in the world, and when the fall is a foot deep a thermometer showing..60deg. on its surface will, if buried beneath the snow, rise to about 30deg. The snow, therefore, is an enormous blanket protecting the roots of the trees from -the intense cold... . A full-glown pine 'can stand almost any degree of cold,. but :a young tree cannot do so. It might sprout" during summer, but. a snowless winter would infallibly kill it. If, therefore, snow ceased, the enormous t...

Our Medicine Men. GREAT WORK OF R.A.M.C. HOW WOUNDED ARE GOT IN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917

SOur Medicine -Men. GREAT WORK OF R.A.M.C. HOW WOUNDED ARE GOT IN. A .German officer-prisoner-he had come from the. province of Schleswig-. -Holstein and was no Hun-talking on the Somme of the new British Army, put our R.A.M.C. 'Service and Air Service first for efficiency. He classed' them, says a special correspondent of the "Post," far higher than the cor responding Prussian Services.,. In the fighting line and as a wounded pri soner he had seen a great deal of our Army, was inclined to be a-fair critic, and had some knowledge to inake his opinion worth attention. French offi cers, speaking of our Medical Service to me, have more than once praised it "as the finest in this war; Such flattering outside opinions are not necessary; though they are wel come, to reinforce the conclusion which the record of work of the R.A.M.C. prompts: that our Army Medical Corps has solved very suc cessfully the vast problems-military and medical-which the Great War has presented. The Somme advance p...

Appointment of Engineer at Destructor Leads to Differences between Administrative Officer and Councillors—"Steam Roller" Smith gets the Job, but "No Assistance"—Committee will Enquire into Circumstances. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917

Appointment of Engineer at Destruc tor Leads to Differences between Administrative Officer and Council lors-"Steam Roller" Smith gets the Job, but "No Assistance"-Com mittee will Enquire into Circum stances. It is no secret that friction has ex isted for some time past between Mr. Charles Rose, the city surveyor, and certain councillors, because of what he regards as their overbearing atti tude towards his authority as an ad ministrative officer. Matters have come to a head over the latest de velopment. Since the establishment of the municipal refuse destructor in Barkly-street it has been under the control of the surveyor. He selected and appointed an engine-driver and transferred one of the. council fore men to supervise the tipping of re fuse and attend to other requirements, as indicated by a representative of the firm who built the destructor and who stayed on to instruct the council employes. So far, it is claimed, the destructor has been worked in a manner thoroughly satisfac...

An Innocent Adventuress. By CHARLES PROCTOR. Author of "The Dice of God," "What Shall It Profit a Man?" "At Dead ,of Night," etc., etc. Published by Special Arrangement. (Copyright.) CHAPTER I. Dismissed and Adopted. "The cashier will pay you your wag s. We have no further need for your services." As he spoke, the general manager of Brompton's Bayswater Stores scribbled a note and tossed it care lessly across to the girl who stood pale and erect at the opposite side of his office table. He was a grim faced, grizzled, elderly man, utterly devoid of sentiment, and to him the dismissal of an assistant was merely an incident in the day's work. "This is unjust, sir!" exclaimed the girl quickly and a trifle tremulously. "Lady Tattersall abused me and used most insulting language simply be cause a box accidentally toppled off the counter and fell on her pet dog. It was not my fault that the box fell, the dog was not hurt, and I only told the woman that she had no right to speak to me as sh...

Followers of Gloria's Romance Will Welcome Her Awakening to the Falsity of Her Lover.-Mae Murray Starred at National in Fine Film. Billie Burke continues to charm the hearts of National audiences by her sweetly-unaffected acting. Many matters of which Gloria was ignor ant are cleared up in the third instal ment to be screened on Monday. Gloria learns the true character of her lover and realises that he was utter ly worthless. This is a welcome re lief to audiences, who have been somewhat at a loss to understand her infatuation for Freneau. He was "ordinary," to say the least of it. This latest six-reel instalment is the best to date. Mae Murray, in The Big Sister, presents a clever little actress in a charming play. The Lasky pro ducers have excelled themselves in the introduction of the "human" note, which lifts this film into a foremost place. His Waiting Career, a slap stick comedy by L.K.O., will win the laughs. Marguerite Courtot and Owen Moore figure in a comedy drama of much ...
