THE PATHOS OF PLENTY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
THE PATHOS OF PLENTY. The rich man sat at his festive board, And they brought him food, and his wine they poured, They handed him first some ragtime dish That looked like fowl but smelled like fish. They gave him an a la painted blue, And a yellow one and a green one, too, And something in -French that was mostly hash, And a dish with a ruffle and a broad red sash, And one with a lavender sauce o'er laid While he longed for the pandakes Mother made! -London "Opinioin." Bill (examining photographs) to Bert: "Well, yer know, I like the photo of you in your gas mask best." "Bystander." Some of the hotels have opened bars for the sale of "soft" drinks after six. o'clock o' evenings. Suspicious folk have written to the papers 'hint ing that something is being done to "harden" these drinks. "Would you Slike a lemonide, Madame?" asked the steward of the seasick Widow O'Brien. "I would," replied the lady. "S1hall I put: a 'stick' in it to give it a kick?' the steward asked, with a wink. "A ...

The SEED of EMPIRE Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., London & Melb. CHAPTER L. The Good Young Stuff. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
The SEED of EMIPIRE By FRED M. WHITE, Author of "The Day," "The Crimson Blind," "The Law of the Land," "The Corner House," etc. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., London & Melb. CHAPTER L. The Good Young Stuff. The day was beginning to draw on, and there were thousands there who had had enough of it. It was not that there was anything the matter with their pluck, or that fear was gnawing at their hearts, for even the youngest of them had long since got over that numbed feeling which comes to every soldier, h wever stout his nerves may be, when for the first time he finds himself under fire. It had become a sheer case of physical endurance now, and the battle would go to those that were the best equip ped to meet it. And that was where the British outdoor life, the hours in the playing fields, and sport, which is second-- nature, were telling against the foe. There were points here and there, of course, where the attack hung fire. In so big an engagement ...

Mine Laying INCIDENTS ON A HOSTILE COAST GABRIELLE D'ANNUNZIO'S POETIC DESCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
Mine Laying INCIDENTS ON A HOSTILE COAST GABRIELLE D'ANNUNZIO'S POETIC DESCRIPTION. It can be said of the Italian war what Percy Bysshe Shelley said of the Medusa's head which he saw in Florence, and which he attributed to Leonardo du Vinci, "Its beauty and its horror are divine." This night of danger and death is one of the sweetest that ever spread its blue yeil over the face of the hea vens. The sea darkens, and in its innumerable pulsations the nocturnal phosphorescence is already discern ible. Here and there the rippled sur face of the sea glitters with an inter nal light as a quivering eyelid, disclo sing mysterious glances. The new moon is . like burning sulphur. Ever and anon the black cloud of smoke rising from the funnel hides it or appears to drag it in its spirals like a moving flame. Life is not an abstraction of as pects and events, but a sort of dif fused sensuousness, a knowledge of fered to all the senses, a substance good to touch, smell, taste, feel. In fact, I fe...
THE PASSING OF THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
··· `·i'--- 'I:, THE.PASSING OF THE HORSE. While horses are still numerous in this country,.and are likely to be for -a * a. number of years (says the "Scien tific American"), there has been a diminution in the. number - of horses used abroad, due to. the wastage of war.. It has been stated-that only 7 per.cent of the traffic of the principal cities in England was carried on by means of commercial motors at the outbreak of the war. The consump tion of draft animals in all of the bel ligerent countries has been great, and is continuing at a rate that increases with the progress of the war.- Animals 'that were in good condition for work when the -war started, and -which were left in small numbers -to serve re quirements of civilian- traffic are older than they were at the outbreak of. --the war,.and.are not so suitable for -the work they performed when young -er and stronger. Indications are that the horse. shortage will come to a 'head with a suddenness that will be unpleasant to tho...
