Young Richmond Electrical Engineer Killed in Street Collision.—Motor-Car Bumped Him After, It Is Said, Cycle Skidded. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
Young Richmond Electrical Engineer Killed in Str~cet Collision.-Motor Car Bumped Him After, It Is Said, Cycle Skidded. Tragic circumstances attended the death of Patrick David Donovan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Donovan, of 25 Buckingham-street, at Camnberwell on Sunday. Young Donovan-he was 21 years of age-was at about 5.40 p.m. riding a bicycle in Norwood-road whei~ he was knocked down by a motor-car. The motor driver stopped and conveyed Donovan, who had sus stained injuries to the head, to a near-by hotel. A medical man was sent for, but on arrival he pronounced life extinct. On behalf of the motor driver it is claimed that the primary. cause of the collision was through Donovan's cycle skidding. That, of course, is a matter for coronial in quiry. Donovan was a bright young man, and appeared to have a promi sing career in front of him. He was an assistant electrical engineer in the G.P.O. He was buried in Kew Cemetery on Tuesday.
Despite Governor of Utah, Mormon Maid Comes to National—Final Episode of Gloria's Romance and Other Big Features. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
Despite Governor of Utah, Mormon Maid Comes to National-Final Episode of Gloria's Romance and Other Big Features. Love's Reward is the title of the last instalment of Gloria's Romance, which will be screened at the Nat ional Theatre commencing on MIon day. It provides a fitting climax to the master serial, and its sweet sim plicity and charm come as a pleasing contrast to the thrills which have gone before. Billie Burke is at her best in depicting the joyousness of love's surrender. There is novelty and dramatic force about The Yellow PIawn. The story opens with a close up view of a chess-board. The various characters are the pawns and the hand of fate moves them in an impressive i fashicn. Wallace Reid as the artist is the White King, and Cleo Ridgeley the White Queen. The Yellow Pawn -which is responsible for some of the most dramatic moves-is a Jap anese servant. There is an exciting third degree scene, and altogether it is a first-class film. -. Her Circus Knight- will be the Ke...

PROOF OF THE PUDDING WHAT THE NEWSAGENTS SAY. COMMENT ON "GUARDIAN" SALES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
PROOF OF THE PUDDING WHAT THE NEWSAGENTS SAY. COMMENT ON "GUARDIAN" SALES Mr. G. Provan, opposite station, Swan-street: "I did not expect a very great slump, but I did think that there would be some falling off. It was soon apparent, however, that there would not be any. My first par cel for boys supplying electric tram passengers sold as readily as ever. These sales are mostly for people be yond Richmond, and when they cons tinued to be as eager for your paper as ever it was natural to assume that RI ichmond people would also be firm in their allegiance. This has been the case." Mr. J. Fife, Lennox-street: "The iEnglish papers long ago increased their price, but my customers con tinued to buy them. Why would Rich mond people desert their own paper then? I knew they would not. You Skno.v now that I was right. I had to get extras from your office on Satur day morning." Mr. G. Heywood, Church-street: "It is only the very ignorant people who cannot see that the production and importati...

MARRIAGE AND OLD AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
MARRIAGE AND OLD AGE. If you desire to:?live to a good old age you will do well to read what an eminent doctor .says :on .the- subte.t. He has given much'time-t~o the. study of longevity, and the cobnclusibns at Which he has- arrived.' are based-an statistics which seem in all redpedts reliable. . . He makes, first of all, the. bold statement that. anyone .who desires to live for four score and ten years should get married. In other words, he claims that conjugal life is-a re cessary condition of longevity. Here are the statistics which suppbot tlis statement: Of 200 .persons who have reached the age of forty years, the doctor found that 125 were. married and 75 unmarried. Of 7,0 mien'whoho d reached the age of sixty years, he found thdt 48 were married and ohly 22 unmarried. .

While Pawnbroker Sups Man Breaks Window.—A Trail of Blood. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
While Pawnbroker Sups Man Brieaks Window.-A Trail of Blood. Enjoying supper in a room upstairs at 1 a.m. on Tuesday, Mr. W. Amor, manager of the Swan-street branch of the Australian Monte de Piete, heard a crash in the shop. He hur ried down and found a hole two feet in diameter in the plate-glass window. Blood was soaking into the floor and trickling down the glass. Constable Strahan arrived on the scene, and a search was made for the culprit -with. cut success. . In the morning it was found that he. had left a trail of blood, down the lane alongside. He had climbed the railway fence and escaped.. A number of sapphire brooches . and rolled gold watches were. in the. window.. One of .the watches is missing.
Spotting the U Boats [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
Spotting the U Boats By C. G. Grey, Editor of "Aeroplane." Sundry officers of the Royal Naval Air Service having been awarded de corations for the destruction of sub marines, it is presumably permissible to state openly that aircraft have been and are being used for the purpose of submarine catching. In fact, I have been myself permitted to tell in print certain R.N.A.S. yarns of adventures with submarines, so perhaps one may be further permitted by a benign cen sorship to discuss the possibilities of aircraft still further. There is a popular delusion, which is not exactly a delusion, that the ob server in an aeroplane can see as far down into the water as a submar ine is likely to dive. Up to a point this is true, for if the water is clear it is possible to see some 20ft. or 30ft. into it from a point vertically above. and if such water is only 40ft. or 50ft. deep a submarine is not likely to dive beyond the visibility point. It is quite another matter, however, in the North Sea, ...
The Two Fronts. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
The Two Fronts. Lady Poore tells this story of a Scottish lad of sixteen who managed by falsifying .his age to join the Black Watch and get to the front. Sent back to a base hospital suffering from a strained heart, he found him self in the, care of an Australian nur sing sister. He arrived in shorts and with neither kilt nor any other item of. the distinctive insignia of his re giinent: "Sister," he said confidentially, "I would like you to see me in full dress, and produced from his pocket a grimy pbrtrait of himself arrayed in the complete. panoply of the smart Highlander. "B?it," 6bjected 'Sister;' "you never expested -to wear -the sporran at the front?" . "Where else, sister?" asked the puzzled 6'y. "Ye dnever lo6tok for me to 'be iearing it behiid," Prdmissory notes are in reality nothing but paper-waits,: '
Trousers for Skirts. WOMEN OF ENGLAND DOING MEN'S WORK IN MEN'S GARB. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
Trousers for Skirts. WOMEN OF ENGLAND DOING MEN'S WORK IN MEN'S GARB. By Margaret Davies, in the Chicago "Tribune." This war will change all things for European women. Military ser vice, of a sort, has come for them in both France and England, where they are replacing men employed in clerical and other non-combatant de partments, including motor driving. The moment this was decided upon in England it was found that 30,000 men would be released for actual fighting, with the prospects of the release of more than 200,000 more. What the French demand will be is not known as I write, but it will equal that of England. Thousands of girls in France are working in trousers. Note the smart liveries of the girls who have taken the places of male carriage starters, mechanics and elevator operators at a great London shop. They are very natty. Almost like costumes from a comic opera. Work Skirts Won't Fit. Well, they are not operatic cos tumes. They are everyday working liveries. Girls wear them...
THE DOCTOR'S SELF-POSSESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
THE DOCTOR'S SELF-POSSESSION. In the modern doctor, dignity takes the form of emotional reserve. He avoids the heights and depths and treads an even road. This makes him reliable when action is the cue, an noying when an adequate responsive ness is what we chiefly desire. To let oneself out of one's own grip may be all right, he thinks, for a stock broker or a clergyman, but it is bad form for a doctor. He often develops in this way an unusual control of temper. It will never do to let the hand or the brain be joggled by even a pardonable thrust of anger. The layman thinks he has a right to get mad sometimes, but the doctor, while on duty, never; with the patient and the family, never. Of course doctors break their own rules in this as in other matters. Nevertheless, the rules are there to break, clearly distinguished from the standards of the laity. This emotional neutrality is some times very annoying and even unnat ural. The doctor has had to face so many horrors unmoved-in order...
Big Sea Battle POSSIBILITY CONSIDERED. WILL THE HUNS COME OUT? INDICATIONS OF CONFLICT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
Big Sea Battle POSSIBILITY CONSIDERED. WILL THE HUNS COME OUT? INDICATIONS OF CONFLICT. Those. with an inside knowledge of how thinigs are trending incline strongly towards the belief that re cent'events have increased the proba bility of a naval battle at an early date (writes the naval correspbndent of the "Weekly Despatch"). Without entering minutely into the reasons for this inference, one may say that the pundits-who keep asking, "When will the German Fleet come out?" have grasped the wrong end of the stick. The detenmining ques tion is no- longer "When will the German Fleet come out?" but "How much longer will the German Fleet be able to stay in?" One may argue that there is-no difference in sub stance between these queries. But there is--and a very wide one. Hitherto it has rested with the Germans- to say when a sea battle should be fought, or whether one should be fought at all. In so far as this important decision was- involved, our fleet has been at the enemy's dis posal, ...
RICHMOND INDUSTRIES BLOCKED. KENNON'S PROPOSED EXTENSIONS BANNED. UNFAIR TACTICS OF OUTSIDERS. PECULIAR POSITION OF SUB PRIMARY INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
RICHMOND INDUSTRIES BLOCKED. KENNON'S PROPOSED EXTENSIONS BANNED. UNFAIR TACTICS OF OUTSIDERS. PECULIAR POSITION OF SUB PRIMARY INDUSTRIES. With the 'big guns of the morning newspapers booming in their ears and still trained on them, backed by the weighty influence of a powerful section of property-owners, the Board of Public Health has seen fit to re verse the decision of the Richmond Council, which gave a permit to J. Kennon and Sons and other manufac turers to extend the large sub-prim ary industries they have established here. Though the board's pronouncement has come as a big disappointment to the gentlemen who had proposed to build up industry- here, it is hard ly a surprise. Because they were not fully cognisant of the real inten tions of the manufacturers concerned, or because they imagined some fan cied nuisance would occur to them ind their property, or because their cursory examination of the real facts had convinced them that the estab lishment of such industries in the ...
War by Microbe GERMAN PLOT UNRAVELLED. DIRECTED AGAINST RUMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
War by Microbe GERMAN PLOT UNRAVELLED. DIRECTED AGAINST RUMANIA. ' ?obe-t de Lazeu, a writer for the Paris "Figrro," has collected the evi dence tending to prove that the Ger mans, u~der protection of diplomatic aimmunity in time of peace, had intro duced into Rumania certain explo sives and .microbe cultures intended to 'be used to blow. up lVmanian rail ways and infect Rumanian cattle and horses. In 'the course of the Dobrudja cam paign., he says,.I had occasion to wit ness and verify many. Bulgarian hor rors and German atrocities; but none of these seems to :me to have equal led in infamy the diScovery that was made on October 5, 1916, at 11 o'clock in the mornin:g,. in the garden of the German Legation at Bucharest, of a case of powerful explosives and a whole set of tubes and little boxes of bacilus cultures, intended to. spread in Rumania .two-dreaded epidemics anthrax and glanders. The fact is so unheard of, so mon stro?s, so unprecedented in the an nals of civilisation and e...
TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. W\\hat A Birthday. Even the horses kept it up. Lord Dudley, Artillery Bill and Bal lista each repeated their performance of the same days in the previous year. And it was a poor sort of a punter who far once in a way did not find himself on the winning list on the Saturday, even if he did celebrate the unusual happening by making a pre sent of it all, or nearly all, .to the j)ckoies on the Monday. Reports from Sydney are to the ef fect that the totalisator has so far not proved popular there, but there is no truth in the rumor that John \'ren has been offered £22,000 a year t'. go over and take charge and put everything into the same clockwork -i,,ir as characterised the working i ;l1 old Johnson-street joint. (iur own opinion of the tote, based on experience of the working of the ::;chline in four States, is not so con diermnatory. That it is no good to-the "big" punter or to alert fellows who are admittedly in front of the average punter must be conceded, but where ...

CHILD MARRIAGES. Mothers at the Age of Fifteen.,' Amoing the modern Egyptians, girls generally, marry when , twelve' 'or fourteen years of age; at eightedn they .are considered "unmarriage-j able" and "unmanageable," A young man who feels that it is' time for him tb wed goes to his: mother, or nearest female relative, and bids her ar-ange matters and di rect his choice.
