An Innocent Adventuress Published by Special Arrangement. (Copyright.) CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
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 VIII.-Continued. A tinge of hot color crept into Phyllis' white, troubled face, as she inclined her head again, and her an swer was scarce louder than a whis per. "Yes." "Good!" ejaculated Cramer, and Phyllis gazed at him in surprise, for she had anticipated a remonstrance at least. "Hampden is an excellent young man, well-connected and weal thy, although impulsive and some what stubborn. One can hardly blame him for having shot Jenkins, who seems to have been a man of bad character, and it would be a great pity to wreck his life and ruin his promising career by denouncing him as a murderer. No doubt he was provoked, and for my part I regard the deed as justifiable homicide, al though I know the police would call it murder. Now, my dear, I have told you that I believe Hampden contem plates accusin...

RICHMOND COURT Monday, June 11. Before Mr. S. Goldsmith, P.M., and Messrs McCall and Tatnall, J's.P. Richmond is Home of Quiet Horses "World's Record" Awarded. "To judge by the statements of de fendants in these cases, the number of quiet horses in Richmond gives this city the highest percentage of any place in the world," smilingly remark ed Mr. Goldsmith in imposing fines upon drivers who left their vehicles standing in streets without having "the wheel securely fastened by a chain or strap." Continuing, Mr. Goldsmith said that when one of these "quiet" horses bolted and killed a child it was of little consequence to the parents of the child if the horse had the reputa tion of being as docile as a lamb. Fines were imposed upon Ernest Morris 12/6, Joseph Smith 10/-, Leslie Sinclair 15/-, George Abbott 15/-. Wife Charges Husband With Assault -He Goes Unpunished for the Sake of Children.

Effective. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
Effective. A lady entered a railroad car and .took a :seat in front of a newly-mar ried couple. She was hardly seated before they began making remarks, about her. . Her last year's bonnet and coat were fully critfiis'ed" itl more or less giggling on the bride's part, and there' is no telling what might have come next if the lady had not put a sudden stop to the conver sation by .. bit of strategy. She turned her head, noticed that the bride was considerably older than the groom, and, in the smoothest of tones, said: "Madam, will you please ask your son to close the window?" The "son" closed his mouth, and the bride no longer giggled. -: "I am.sorry. to be critical, my: dear,'.. said Mr :'Lmbkin, "but this pudding is not the kind that mother used to make-not by a long shot." "It's too bad,. Henry," replied Mrs. Lambkin, amiably, "I don't know what to do. about it. Perhaps you'd better write to her and tell her. She sent it over this afternoon." Old maids must have been born in the wr...

AMERICAN TACT ABROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
AMERICAN TACT "ABROAD. -While travelling through Europe with a' chum of .mine on a pleasure and sight-seeing trip before this pre .sent war, we made our headquarters at one of the big cities, and from there we took side trips to other cities. While visiting one of these cities, we spent the day sightseeing. At about six o'clock in the evening, we decided it was about time we proceeded to the depot to take our train back to the city where we made our headquarters. Being a long distance from the de pot, we decided to take a cab. So seeing one close by, we hailed the driver, but to our dismay- he -could net understand us. We tried hard. It was useless. Finally a happy idea struck me, and turning to my chum, I said;. "I -think. ! can make him understand vQry nlainly that we wish to go to the depot.?:Now you make a noise like a locolnotive, and I will .niake a noise like a whistle." "A very- good :idea," said my friend, "I got to give `you credit for.using your head. Of course, my head a...
What the Prince Saw. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
' What the .Prince Saw.; Bearing in mind the well-known ab stemious habits of President Wilson, Americans are just now recalling an amusing incident that happened when that guzzling German, Prince Henry of Prussia, visited Washington some little time before the war. Wishful to do the proper thing by his guest, the President invited him to. that peculiarly German function, a "beer feast," only to discover at the last moment that the White House lacked the necessary equipment in the shape of sufficient glasses for the Prince and his numterous suite. Accordingly ten dozen , tumblers were hurriedly ordered to be hired from a neighboring hotel kept by one Ernest Gerstenberg. They arrived just before the guests,' and when Prince Henry "took the first observation" through one of these" glasses he saw engraved on the bot t6m nthis, startling notice, "Stolen from Ernest Gerstenberg." Who shall blame the Prince if he looked rather suspiciously at the Pre sident? :-The explanation was. quite s...
(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
(To the Editor.) Sir,-The Railway Standing Com mittee is squealing at the success of the Richmond electric tramway, and raises objection to the small fare of one renny between Princes Bridge and Lennox-street. Let us analyse the ac tion of the Railway Commissioners and the Hawthorn Tramway Trust. The latter gives the public the benefit of penny sections, and by the exten sive patronage bestowed it is evident the rublic appreciate the boon. What have the Railway Commissioners done for the public? Nothing except dis play a conservative and autocratic disposition in imposing excessive rates for the same distance. The tram way charges one penny; the railway demands, for the same distance, 2d. second class and 3d. first class single fares, in addition to climbing and de scending many steps to get to and from the railway carriages, whereas the tramcars can be reached without effort and inconvenience, and they run very much oftener. Further, the Railway Standing Committee attempts to blame...

"Did grandma tell you they would: make corns on your feet if you wore them?" "Yes." "How did she know?" "She found out by experience, just as I did." I "Hadn't she any mamma to warn, her against wearing them?" "Oh, yes!" , . "But she wore them just the same?" "To be sure." "And you did, too?" "Yes; that is what I was telling you."

OPEN COLUMN. RICHMOND ROADS. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
OPEN COLUMN. RICHMOND ROADS. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I was delighted to hear from Cr. Bell that we were £800 to the good this year, irrespective of £112 spent by the council on a silly, un successful scheme of compiling a ratepayers' list. I saw visions of get ting the rate reduced and the £800 spent on a bumpy road like Mary street; but, alas! I am informed that we will close the year with a deficit of £4000. Cr. Bell talks of courage in putting the rate up. To spend other people's money seems a cheap form of courage nowadays. The above deficit of £4000 Srepresents a 3d. rate. We will see if Cr. Bell has the courage to move that the rate go up to 2/4 or leave it to posterity to pay. Cr. Bell's "stone crushers" do excellent work, but he mistakes my contention. I have no quarrel with the stone: it is with the "shifting soil" that blinds the sur face, so that mud and dust are so plentiful. I agree that the council has spent thousands on the roads, but I com plain that, after spending th...
Barb Wire Used in War. 86,000 MILES IN LENGTH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
Barb Wire Used in War. 86,000 MILES, IN LENGTH, The-American .Steel Export Com pany announces that its shipments of barb wire to"the allied armies total more than 12;000 tons, which, if stretched into a single Jine, would extend 86,000 miles. The shipments have been in progress ever since trench warfare was first undertaken on a big scale in France and Russia. "The. product is not. the .ordinary barb wire," says the company, "but a special military type, 'very- heavy: and •strong, with great four-pointed. barbs and. painted the grim olive drab ofW ,ar. The wire is made up in dif ferent ways, sometimes coiled in a special manner and held by a single strand, so that it might be tossed bodily out in front of a trench, and the binding strand severed, allowing the whole coil to burst open and un wind like a great.clock spring, cover ing the front of the trench with a tangled mass impenetrable to attack-' ing troops. "On other occasions, when time permitted, the barb: wire has been: woven...
