THE PEOPLE OF INDIA. The population of India is far more diverse than is generally thought. They talk about 150 different lan guages, and are divided up into forty three distinct nationalities. There are 2378 main castes besides a large number of sub-castes. There are 200,000,000 Hindus, from which, for tunately, we can draw fighting men; 60,000,000 Mohammedans, -while among the Hindus there are 50,000,000 of degraded people of no caste, whose touch, or even shadow, is supposed to cause pollution. The girls are of all sorts, bright little things with pounds' worth of gold ornaments round their necks and arms and in their ears and noses. These are Brahman children, who must. be married before they are ten and are then kept secluded in their mothers' homes till the final mar riage ceremonies are complete, when they are passed on to the houses of their mothers-in-law. A Brahman or Hindu girl has re fined features, and in figure is what the French call petite. Their car riage is erect, ...

It DOES want a lot of explaining. It wants that much explaining that if it were printed here we would probably be the persons called upon to do the ex plaining-before a judge and jury in a libel action. It was only recently that Cr. Bell, In endeavoring to reply to criticism by Dr. D. Rosenberg on the tragic state of the Richmond streets. appended his name to an effusion which set out that the doctor had based his ...

FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Scrutator." Three Years Ago! And how much further? To-day is the third anniversary of the most fateful happening in the world's history. And there will be no ball games at Richmond or elsewhere, even though they still are "going on." Matches originally listed for to-day will take place next Saturday. But the race-lords will have their big gathering at Caulfield just the same. Is it got up for the bookies? Last Saturday's match against South was a disappointment to the support ers of the yellow and black. At times they played dashing and brilliant foot ball, but their efforts were not sus tained and it takes a big push right through to win against the men from Emerald Hill. Richmond were unlucky in having to play with seventeen men during three parts of the game. Young Glee son, who had been playing good foot ball right through the season, acci dentally came into collision with Deas and broke his collar-bone. His loss was a big handicap to Richmond. The principal...

Bowman, the chairman of the building commit tee, that there were many small allot ments of land, less than 16ft. wide, in Richmond, and it was considered that if a greater frontage than 16ft. was insisted upon an injustice would be...
