If Pictures Cause Crime It Comes Home to Roost.—Boys Store Goods Alleged to be Stolen Under Movie Manager's House. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
If Pictures Cause. Crime it Comes Home to Roost.-Boys Store Goods Alleged to be Stolen Under Movie Manager's House. "Movies" and child criminals are often bracketed, and it is .an amusing coincidence that three boys and what is alleged to be the proceeds of 14 Richmond robberies were found be neath the house of Picture Showman Barrett. Meeting Constable T. S. Street in Lennox-street on Tuesday, Mr. Bar rett said to him,' "I believe there are boys sleeping under my house. I used to wake up in the morning and think, 'My word! those nippers next door are up early.' I :would hear boy' chattering and laughing at all hoii`rs of the morning. It seems to me now the sounds come up through the, floor. You might go and have a look." Street did so, and a little later in the morning a cab containing three dust-covered constables and as many even grimier boys caused passers bh to turn and have another look. It was on its way to the police station, and carried as ballast five suit-cases and severa...
Richmond, as Industrial District, Getting Ready for Post War Boom.— Many New Factories and Big Demand for Labor Are Likely Here. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
Richmond, as Industrial District, Get ting Ready'for Post War Boom. Many New Factories and Big De mand for Labor Are Likely Here. Ruin and starvation were prophe sied by moody people as a concomi tant of the war, but the dismal Jim mies have been falsified. Never has Australia risen on such a high tide of prosperity. Especially is this the position in the industrial districts. Richmond is a notable instance. There is hardly a manufacturer in our midst who has not a greater turnover to day than at any time in the pre-war period. Vastly accumulated expenses are in many .cases eating out the sur plus that would otherwise be achieved, but the great majority of the employes are not affected. Pes simists declare that we have now reached the flood, and that unless we are careful we will crash against the black wall of disaster in the days ahead. Reading all the signs, how ever, we have no cause for fears. As one writer in that very readable, and instructive new magazine "Land and Transport...
BELGIUM TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
BELGIUM TO-DAY. An interesting and In some respects remarkable book from the pen of Pro fessor Jean Massart, of the Royal Academy of Belgium, was recently is. sued. The volume is entitled "Bel. gians under the German Eagle," and in one passage the author writes: "We are weeping, but we do not sur render ourselves to despair, for we have kept intact our faith in the fu ture and the firm resolve to leave no stone unturned that we may for ever be spared such another trial. Above all, we refuse to bow our heads be. neath the yoke. In vain the Germans have afflicted us with increasingly un. just and unjustifiable and vexatious demands; they will never daunt us. Let them proscribe the Belgian flag as a seditious emblem; we have no need to unfurl it to remain faithful to it; they are welcome to forbid the To Deum on the day of the king's patron saint; but the king and queen are valiantly sharing in the' etforts and the sufferings of our brothers and our sons. No, we assuredly are not ready...
Always Would Be. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
Always Would Be. Jimmy Parker worked beside his father at a large cotton mill in a cer tain town in Lancashire. They were both accustomed to stopping in to their dinner on a Friday, when mother used to bring their repast to-the fac *tory. One Friday after she had arrived with the dinners a work-mate came across Jimmy, nearly heartbroken. "Whatever is there the matter, Jimmy?" he asked. "The matter!" Jimmy replied. "Look at father's dinner, and look at mine." "Well, Jimmy," said the workman consolingly, "you must remember that your father is a lot bigger than you." Jimmy burst out sobbing as he wail ed: "Ay, and so he always will be at this rate!"

Why She Screamed. Two men, father and son, both very greedy, were at a bazaar where a dainty lady was selling kisses in aid of the war fund. Father: "Go on, my boy, there's half a crown. When I was young I used to make 'em scream." The son returned a few minutes later, following upon. an uproar. "Well, my boy, did you kiss her?" "Yes, father." "What did you do to make her scream?" "Kept the half-crown!"
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
. Ladies' Letter. Many girls and women nowadays exhibit their work-roughened hands with pride. And well they may. Yet, as a general rule, it is quite possible to keep the hands in good condition in spite of hard manual work, well washed in good soap and warm water, softened with a little borax or some good toilet vinegar night and morn ing, and, whenever necessary, during the day. A good nailbrush with firm bristles should be used for scrubbing the nails, and pumice stone or lemon, or both, for removing stains from the hands and fingers. When the hands become soiled and greasy after the performance of household duties, a little cold cream or white vaseline should be rubbed well into them be fore and after washing, in order to keep the skin smooth and soft. Oni home washing days, when there is a great deal of laundry work to be done, after being immersed for a long time in the washtub the hands are apt to assume a rather harsh, wrinkled ap pearance. This can be cured by dip ping them...
Carving Up England. HUNNISH CHICKEN-COUNT. WINDSOR CASTLE FOR KAISER. JUNKERS ALLOTTED COUNTRY SEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
Carving Up England. HUNNISH CHICKEN-COUNT. WINDSOR CASTLE FOR KAISER. JUNKERS ALLOTTED COUNTRY SEATS. Charles von Weissenrode, a mem ber of the Kaiser's general staff, wrote a pamphlet entitled, "The Ger man Army in England," which was a frank confession of what the Huns especially those in high places-in tended to do when they had carried out a successful invasion of England. The Kaiser, however, would not al low the pamphlet to be published. The Emperor, perhaps, thought it might be wiser to wait until he was able to invade England before allow ing his post' invasion plans to be made public. Some parts of the pamphlet were, as a matter of fact, later published in the form of a short article in a Ger man paper. I, however, saw a copy of the complete pamphlet, writes a contributor to "Pearson's Weekly." It was shown to me in proof by the man ager of the publishing firm who print ed it. Zeppelin Sheds Near London. It appeared that one of the first things that the Kaiser's general sta...

Yes! Yes!. It's a tragic irony' when a temper ance lecturer has a red nose.. He may explain t.hat it's -indigestion, but peo ple willi never listen, and they get so rude sometimes! An earnest advocate of the: spark ling brook was addressing a North London audience some time ago, and throughout he was interrupted by a heckler, who punctuated his flowing periods with:- . "Tell us how yer got yer nose!' That ain't a water-color! Been dipping it in the Red Sea, mate?" Presently the lecturer could' stand it no longer. "That man will make me angry in a minute!" he cried. "I'm not easily put out, but when 'I am put out, you 'can be sure -that---" '.It is closing time!" shouted the `voice.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. There are enough mice in the Mal lee to .make even .a cat laugh. W&:,once :heard a yarn in connec tion with a little public-house race meeting, .where- the duties of starter and judge on this occasion were per formed by the one man, who, after despatching the fields at a bad turn leading out of the straight, had to run back a hundred yards or so and get on his box to see the finish,.. In the particular event referred to, however, he became so excited watching the race that he forgot to run back to the winning-post, with the result that Brady and McHugh, two of the lead ing residents of the district, sprang on to the little pine-box, and their verdict would never have been ques tioned, only it so happened that as the two leading horses passed the post it was seen that one was Brady's horse and the other McHugh's. "I make it that mine won by a head or more," said Brady. "And I make it that mine won by a neck or more," "said lMcHugh. "You're not honest," s...

EUROPE ON RATIONS. BELLiGERENTS' FOOD PROBLEM, ACUTE POSITION OF ENEMY. All information during late February and March indicated definitely that all the nations of Europe were suffering severely- from food short age. The crisis began to be acute in February, -and until the crops of 1917 begin to mature, a period of about three and a-half months, all Eurcpe will continue to confront the most serious lack of- food that has yet arisen. No portion of the entire Continent is free from privation, though the shortage seems more acute in Germany and Austria than elsewhere. Oscar King Davis, who spent several weeks in Germany be ;ore the severance of relations, and who accompanied Ambassador Ger ard on his journey home, cabled to the New York "Times" from Havana cn March 11 a comprehensive review of the food situation in Germany. .11r. Davis wrote that _Mr. Gerard re garded the condition of Germany as dceaperate, especially where the sup ply of food and general economic con dii ions, includi...

No Applications Received. A certain cantankerous old gentle man not long ago advertised for a coachman, who was required, among other qualifications, to possess an in timate acquaintance with the neigh borhood; but, to his surprise, he re ceived not a single application for the post. "I cannot understand it at all,' he said, as during-a chat one day with an ostler at the local livery stables he had mentioned the fact. "Let me see," :said the latter, as a gleam of intelligence flitted across his face;' "ye advertised,. I believe, for one as 'must be. well acquainted with the neighborhood,' didn't ye?"

SUSPENDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
SUSPENDERS. -Suspenders are a contrivance which help a man keep up'appearanceý."This is accomplished in a neat way by means of holes in the several eniis of the suspenders and corresponding but tons on the appearances. The but tons are put through these -holes and appearances are kept up by the rest ing of the suspenders on the man's shoulders. If a man has stooping shoulders which do not readily lend a resting-place to suspenders, appear ances may sag. And when a button is gone appearances may actually wobble. It behoves every man to make certain that his suspender. but tons are always in a good healthy condition. -If a button gives away it may give away information which he does not intend to make public. Suspenders should be made of a strong trusworthy material so ' that their master will not at any time be afraid to tie his shoe nor be ashamed to pick up a handkerchief for a lady. Suspenders are usually made of some elastic material. This is quite con venient, as it enables one ...
Citizens Urged to Give Medicine Bottles to Richmond Free Dispensary—A Way to Assist a Worthy Cause and Where Support will be Appreciated. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
Citizens Urged to Give Medicine Bottles to Richmond Free Dispen sary-A Way to Assist a Worthy Cause and Where Support will be Appreciated. Dr. Rosenberg, medical officer for that most valuable institution, the Richmond Free Dispensary writes- The Richmond Free Dispensary re quires bottles. At present the price is prohibitive. For example, the blue ribbed poison bottle for liniments costs 2%d. each; they come, by the way, from Japan. I am sure there are great numbers of medicine bottles in private houses in Richmond, which would be gladly given us if your readers only knew how much this is to the poor. If anyone will give me the names of donors of medicine bot tles, we will call for them, or they may be left at the dispensary, Church -street. Trusting that we will get a large number, on behalf of the com mittee.
William S. Hart, Blanche Sweet, "Doug." Fairbanks and Bessie Love Starred in One National Programme.—Big Features Billed. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
William S. Hart, Blanche Sweet, "Doug." Fairbanks and Bessie Love Starred in One National Pro gramme.-Big Features Billed. In all his big gallery of virile, force ful characters, Winm. S. Hart has never played a better role than the' Square Deal Man. National audiences will judge this for themselves on Monday. As the honest gambler, a man who never cheated, and who played as fair in the game of life, Hart is at his best. Blanche Sweet will be seen in a role somewhat novel to her in The Evil Eye, which will also be screened. She is seen as a woman doctor amongst the superstitious Mexicans. There are plenty of thrills in the story of the good work she does and the cruel reward she reaps, and fine acting and photogra phy add attractiveness to the produc tion. Big favorites are billed in the third star, which, though short in length, is strong in caste and humor. The Mystery of the Leaping Fish is the title. It is a two-reeler, and "Doug." Fairbanks and Bessie Love are featured. It is a...
