A VAIN HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
A VAIN HOPE. A negro I encountered down in Alabama (writes Mr. John Kendrick Bangs in "From Pillar to Post") stands conspicuous in my memory for both his conscious wit and his uncon scious humor. He plied me with questions as we stood on a railway platform waiting for my train, and nearly drove me to despair. Part of the illuminating exchange of ideas ran in this wise: "Whar yo' come from?" "Maine," said I. "Get any children?" he asked. "Yes," said I. "I've got two sons in Detroit, and--" "Dee-troit, eh?" he interrupted. "Yaas, suh, Ah've heerd of Dee-troit. Dee-troit's a nice State to have two sons at, Ah reckon. So yo' was born in Dee-troit, was yuh?" "No," I replied, "I wasn't born at eotrcit: I was born at Yonkers--" "O-o-oh! So yo' was horn at Yon kers, was yuh? Yaas, suh-Yonkers. Ah don't know much erbout Yonkers, but Ah guess Yonkers is a nice State, ain't it?" "WVell," I said, "yes, Yonkers is a pretty nice State, too-what you might call a comatose State; but-" "Yaas, suh; A...
(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
(To the Editor.) Sir,-Would you allow me to point out a big injustice? My boy, who was away in the country for nine weeks, was :ummoned to appear at the court for not attending his drill during that time. The lad, who attended his drill regularly before and after he was in the country, was sentenced to 15 days at Queenscliff, although he was willing to make up his drills here? Do you think he was treated fairly? Thank ing you in anticipation, Yours, etc., "DOWNHEARTED." June 20.

Comedy of the Municipal Horse Deals Becomes Burlesque-Two More Horses Die and Council Now Asks Horse Seller Hicks for Time to Pay for More. Once more, for the "umpteenth" time, the stables of the Richmond City Council are wrapped in mourning. Cr. Bell, as chairman of the special com mittee that deals with the subject,-had &nbsp; the melancholy task of yet again announcing to the council assembled on Monday night that "another horse had died." Cr. George slyly took out his pocket handkerchief and flicked a tear away from his eye. It is always a sad re cital, and this time it was sadder than ever before. "Bessie," the pride of the council stables, had gone aloft -gone to join her old mates at the happy hunting grounds where dust carts are unknown and the quality of the green feed is even higher than Pat Raftis can supply. 'Bessie" was a splendidly set-up grey draught mare, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ...

Richmond Branch of Snapshots from , Home League. The branch has been in existence for some eight months, but up to the present the voluntary workers con nected with the movement have re ceived very little local support, al though close on two thousand snap shots have already been taken of Richmond relatives of soldiers. At a preliminary meeting of interested re sidents held at the town hall it was decided to bring the movement under the notice of Richmond people and ask for their interest and practical sup port. The next meeting will be held in the Red Cross room, town hall, on Thursday, July 5, at 8 p.m., when all interested are cordially invited to at tend, especially relatives of soldiers. The aim of the branch is to raise funds to furnish voluntary amateur photo graphers with materials to take, free of charge, snapshots of wives, moth ers or sweethearts of men on active service. Striking . evidence is forth coming of the sentimental value of these reminders of home. A number of ...

The inimit. able Doug. Fairbanks will create hu. mor in Flirting With Fate. He does some thrilling "stunts" in his headlong escape from supposed deadly assaults. But it all ends happily and Doug. smiles throughout the play.

Events move round a mysterious murder, and excit ing incidents occur. The photography is good. On Thursday "our Mutual friend" will visit the Globe. Chaplin in The Cure is just as screamingly funny as ever, and Edna Purviance helps him to distribute the laughs. Bob Harron features in The Bad Boy, a Triangle Fine Arts film in five reels. It is the story of a juvenile delinquent who just couldn't be good. His ad. ventures in the com...
