CRICKET. RICHMOND v. CARLTON. Captain Allan winning the toss, elect ed to take first use of the good wicket at Carlton. Richmond's start was very poor, the first five wickets falling for 59 runs; Rush 15 and Love 11 being the only ones of the early batsmen to keep their captain company for any time. Len Stewart batted vigorously for 30, and the seventh wicket fell at 105. Bayne Mackay was in one of-his batting moods, putting together 36, and before he and Allan were separated thE score had reached 198. Allan just fail ed to reach-the century, getting bowled when 93. He was at the wickets two hours and a half, and his score was the highest for the day in first-grade cric ket. He gave only one chance, when he had scored 76. Bayliss and Smith put up a good last-wicket stand, Smith getting 20 and Bayliss carrying his bat for 11. The innings closed for 230. Carlton made one run without losing a wicket in the few minutes left for play. The, match will be continued at Prin ces Oval to-day....
THE LADY "SALESMAN." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
THE LADY "SALESMAN." While waiting on the town premises of a firm of motor-builders I witness ed an incident the lesson of which is worth a whole manualof salesmanship. An elderly man entered who wore trousers which were tied haymaker fashion, an ancient swallow-tail coat, a battered veteran of a straw hat, and instead of a collar, spotted muffler. Of the dandified young man who strolled towards him uninterestedly he inquir ed the cost of a motor waggon, such as stood in the centre. "Oh! quite a lot of money. You can take a catalogue ii you like," was the answer. Then the elderly man was free to study the back of the young one, who turned and strolled away to the rear. A girl with a bun dle of papers passing by asked if he had had attention, to which the old man replied that if she would answer he had a lot to ask. I heard no more of this dialogue until a quarter of an hour later, after a trip together round the place, the couple came to a stand near me again, and I could hear the '...
The Gentle Hint. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
The Gentle Hint. The young Scottish ploughman was strolling home in the twilight with his servant-girl -sweetheart. When about a mile along the road he quietly said to her: "Jenny, I would kiss ye, but I'm frightened ye wadna let me." No answer. Another mile of the road had been covered when he said again: "Jenny, I would kiss ye, but I'm frightened ye wadna let me." No answer. They were now almost at the garden gate, and for the third - time he ventured: "Jenny, I would kiss ye, but I'm frightened ye wadna let me." "Jamie," said she, "do you remem ber the other night when I could not lift my bicycle over the stile, and you lifted it over for me?" "Yes," replied Jamie. "Well, that shows, Jamie, you'ro far stronger than me." An elderly lady, who is head nurse in an institution for children, calls terself "queen of the bawl-room." Before- putting a bright pan on the. fire, rub it over with a little drip ping. When washing up, use nice soapy water, and when dry rub with a soft duster. ...
Set on St. Lawrence River, Metro. Wonder-Play Has Picturesque Background.—Where Are My Children ? to be Screened at Globe. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
Set on St. Lawrence River, Metro. Wonder-Play Has Picturesque Background.-Where Are My Chil dren? to be Screened at Globe. Wm. S. Hart will make his final ap pearances in On the Night Stage at the Globe this afternoon and evening. It is a typical Hart drama, intense and full of incident. Coming on Monday, The River of Romance is a Metro. wonder-play of the first water. May Allison and Harold Lockwood are the stars. The action of the story takes place among the Thousand Islands district of the St. Lawrence, and a more beautiful and remarkable background could not have been devised. The only wonder is that this spot should have lain so long unexploited by the movie peo ple. For the artistic pnotographer it is a very heaven, and little less for those who can appreciate his work. Amidst this wealth of scenic beauties a striking story is enacted. The re mainder of the programme is of a high standard. George Beban will be seen in a tense drama, The Italian, on Thurs day. It is in six reel...

TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. Still being Shot At. Some people would like the last two words to rcad Shot Out. The much-abused V.R.C. Stipen diary Stewards. Why, oh, why, this unending fuss? The (double-barreiled verdict over tie Pretty Bobby-Joke Illorn incident at Williamstown gave the grumpies another opportunity to growl and to find fault. One thing we will say and it is that somne of the growlers who are crying out for a fair go are not giving the stipes a fair go for it. The Williamstown decision was double-barrelled, but it was beyond doubt a case where both barrels were required, and it was for just such a case that the Rules of Racing were recently amended-and applauded by these growlers. Only the blind could not see that Killorn had allowed Pretty Bobby to crois over too sharply in- front of I'olydamus at the end of the Founda tion Cup, and one did not require any glasses to see that Polydamus was a well-beaten horse at the time. He could not have won. Then why should the stewards penali...
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Personal. Stories of a rescue from drowning at Sandringham on A.N.A. night have been somewhat conflicting. Inquiries seem to show that full credit should be given to Mr. Fredk. Wills, of Burn ley-street. Mr. Wills was on the pier, fully dressed, when an alarm was given, and he observed a boy strug gling in the water. Without waiting to divest himself of either clothes or boots, he dived into the water and reached the boy. A yachtsman who had been busy bailing out his vessel also arrived 'on the scene, but Mr. Wills intimated that he was all right and brought the boy ashore. Resuscitation methods proved suc cessful. To Mr. Wills, who is in busi ness as a fruiterer, is undoubtedly due the credit of saving the boy's life. So many policemen are showing a partiality for bowls as a pastime that they are taking quite as promin ent a part in the games as the old aldermanic element so long associ ated with the game that once be longed to grandfathers only but now whips up...
Lou Tellegen and Cleo Ridgely Are Effective in Lasky Flim at National—Latest Mary Pickford Picture Will Lead All-Star Bill on Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
Lou Tellegen and Cleo Ridgely Are Effective in Lasky Film at National -Latest Mary Pickford Picture Will Lead All-Star Bill on Thursday. Lou Tellegen (husband of Geraldine Farrer) and Cleo Ridgely are co-stars in the latest Lasky hit, The Victory of Conscience, which will go on at the National on Monday. They are a striking pair. The story deals with a Paris roue and a girl, and how they work out their salvation.- The later scenes take place during the present war, and depict their re-union on the batlefields of France, and their final heroic sacrifice. Divorce and the Daughter, which is also billed, will be welcomed for the fact that it presents Florence La Badie in the title role. It is a powerful divorce drama show ing the blighting influence which falls upon the children of the dissentient parents. Come Back to Erin is still another feature. It is in three reels and comes from the Warner studio. Mary Pickford will again delight all hearts on Thursday. The World's Sweetheart has ...
Richmond Councillors Hardly in Bed Before it is Time to Get up Again—Another Sma' Hours Gathering. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
Riichmond Councillors Hardly in Bed ( Before it is Time to Get up Again Another Sma' Hours Gathering. Cr. Burgess, on military duty, was the only absentee from the meeting of the Richmond Council on Monday night. Proceedings began, as usual, I at about eight o'clock, and there did not appear to be anything of suffi cient public interest to warrant the regular press reporters cutting out more important engagements. The I absence of the reporters did not, how ever, have any effect on councillors' loquacity. They talked and talked and talked in the good old style that has won the council a reputation. Pipes were out at 11 p.m., and with smoke-wreaths curling to the ceiling, councillors made themselves quite at home. Cr. Davies became tired of it soon after ten o'clock, and Cr. Strahan made a new-year resolution that he would not in future remain after eleven o'clock. The other councillors went right on and saw things to a safe and happy conclusion. Discussion on the gymnasium girls and...

Parents Should Question Boys About Stolen Explosives. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
Parents Should Ouestion Boys About Stolen Explosives. On Tuesday night the powder maga zine at the Richmond municipal quar ries was broken into, and a box con taining 400 gelienite detonators stolen. The police believe that the theft was committed by boys, who are unaware of the dangerous nature of the stolen articles, and they are apprehensive for the boys' safety. Very little friction will explode the detonators, which are powerful enough to cause serious in jury, and, perhaps, death.

BONDI BREEZES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
BONDI BREEZES. By Frank Sheedy. Down south, where the toiler has few places to go to spend the extra sunlit hour that the daylight-saving scheme has handed to him, it's a question as to whether the proposition takes the form of a blessing or-well, something else. Picturesque as, for instance, the Alexandra Gardens are, there are quite appreciable numbers visit there each evening who would gladly welcome a reversion to the old order of things; for, if there is one thing more than another that the sun light has the power to kill, that one thing is, most assuredly, the "smoodg er bug." And if there is around Mel bourne any public garden more pro lific in the culture of that exquisite affliction of youth, well-it should be advertised. If a vote of the nocturnal habitues of that ex-demesne of the anarchical and red-rag fanatics, now transformed as by magic into so love ly a garden, were taken on the matter, it would be unanimously against the deferred nightfall. We have all read of the "...
GYM. GIRLS BANNED RICHMOND COUNCIL MAKES NEW ORDER. "YOU SHALL NOT ENTER HERE." RESULT OF APPEARANCE AT CINEMA THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 February 1917
GYM. GIRLS BANNED RICHMOND COUNCIL MAKES NEW ORDER. "YOU SHALL NOT ENTER HERE." RESULT OF APPEARANCE AT CINEMA THEATRE. Since the shadow of Father Bren nan's embargo fell across their hith erto pleasant path, the gymnasium girls of Richmond have been treading a rocky path. Hardest to bear of all is 'the latest blow. They have been banished for ever from the precincts of the gymnasium that they loved so well. Citizens will learn with regret that such a seemingly impossible catastro phe has suddenly fallen right across the progress of the finest movement Richmond or any other municipal council in this country ever put into action. The whole position is most unfortunate. That any friction with an outside authority should have been aroused was regretted, but that a simi lar state of affairs should prevail be tween the gymnasium classes and the council is calamitous. Following up the banishment epi sode in connection with the entertain ment at St. Ignatius' Hall, Cr. Barcelo thought it n...
