The Lazy Day TRENCH MONOTONY. TENDING THE UNKNOWN GRAVE. London. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
The Lazy. Day TRENCH MONOTONY. TENDING tHE UNKNOWN GRAVE. London. Sometimes the life of the trenches is a lazy one, and the officer's anxiety is to relieve the monotony which weighs heavily upon his men. Dur ing these days there is simply noth ing to do except stand to under the parapet or lie spread in a dug-out. These are the days and nights when anything may be expected-when the eniemy have been shelling, or we have been preparing, or some spy has brought us news of a German effort. All trench life is monotonous. All trench food is monotonous. All trench sights and hopes and schemes are monotonous. It is a relief to go over the parapet. Every section has its own way in relieving the monotony. Cards usu ally without stakes and reading are the favorite. The demand for cards is always greater than the supply, and men play with aces missing. I have seen them manage a game with half a pack. The Australian will ac custom himself to any situation. Chess has been played in the trench es ...
WHEN THE WAR IS OVER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
WHEN THE WAR IS OVER. SWho shall wake him from his trance - Gaily o'er the sunlit plain, SWhen the war is over - SHe shall ride the routes again- SLight of heart and free of rain, S As best befits a rover, When the present work is done And the Germans beaten, SHome he'll come to 'nights o' fun SSong and dance from set of sun Till the dawn-lights sweeten. In her garden on the hill ' S Hedged with scarlet berries, SShe will meet him-meet and ** thrill- * * Holding up to his, at will, 4. Lips as red as cherries. Then-hands clasped in young delight, All things else a trifle They shall find the future bright. In the silence of the night Cracks a German rifle. SSomewhere, far away in France, SSleeps a sunburned rover; If he sleeps too long, perchance, Who shall wake him from his * When the war is over? trance -?Roderic Quinn.
WISHED HE HADN'T SPOKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
WI:: SHED HE HADN'T SPOKEN. '-It-ise not often that the famous au thor Rudyard Kipling is caught trip ping in conversation, for he is-ai ex cellent talker, and for that reason is always most popular at dinner-par ties. On one occasion, however, he has confessed that he "put his foot -in it" rather badly. SIt was in- India, at Simla, and Kip ling was a guest at a big dinner there. Simla is in the mountains. and it is customary, during the hot season, for ladies to visit that place to escape .from the intense heat of the lower part of the country. At table; Kipling was seated next to a charming lady whom he understood Swas a "grass widow." Now, in India the name "grass widow" is often given to a lady whose husband is de: tained by his work in the hot couintry; while she recuperates in the cooler regions of the mountains,. In the course of the meal, Kipling turned'to his companion and said politely: "I suppose you can't help thinking, of your poor husband grill ing away down there?" Th...
"Coming Home" [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
"Conming Home"- (Fronm "The Vigil and Other Studies in Khaki," by Dell Leigh). The staff officer looked at his watch and walked to the ship's gangway. He peered. through the darkness towards the bridge. A megaphone was lifted from its hook, and a deep penetrating voice above said: "All aboard, sir?" Standing in the glare of the gang way light the officer merely nodded acquiescence, and three warning blasts from the siren reverberated through the harbor and up into the town. It was a damp, miserable night. Rain earlier had now given place to fitful gusts of wind, so that even in the sheltered berth where she lay, the steamer strained slightly at her moorings, as if testing t:.air hempen strength. But in spite of ,this, every officer and man in the Army would have mortgaged his birthright to be aboard her now, for in two days it would be Christmas Eve. Thirteen hundred men and ninety six officers had invaded her decks im patiently during the evening. Most of them were now making prepa...

Where Profits are Shared with Labor [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
WVhere Profits are Shared with Labor A fervent advocate of co-partner ship,: Sir:Villiam Lever, in "System," points ofit that nbow is the time for• employers -to setf: their hduse'in order, to prepare.for increased output on the cessation of hostilities, and to reimain on. terms of friendship with Labor. In most factories and businesses these things can best be brought about by a genuine system of profit-sharing. The Lever Company in 1909 created partnership certificates to the value of half. a million, which were credited on a 10 per cent. salary basis to em ployes above the age of twenty-five with four years' service. Every .year since, further certificates averaging 121/2 per cent. have been given. These draw a dividend of 5 per cent. less than that paid on the ordinary shares. The certificates are not marketable, are only for the employes or their widows, but. the interest is paid in 5 per cent. preferred ordinary shares, which can be sold. As an inducement to employes to retain...

AN INCIDENT IN rRNCHH HISTORY. Upon S'unday, July 29, 1792, In the late morning of that day (writes: Mr. Hilaire Belloc in the "Century"), the broad road that lanks the River Seine above Paris was covered by a mar'ching column of men. They were in number about five hundred. A few showed uniforms grotesque with dust ;amnd.grease. The most part were in the clothes of their civil estate, a few workmen, many of the professions, not a few from the land. For the most. part they went gaily enough, though without parade; but some were very weary, and a few halting Spitiably, though all trudged on. This column was that of "'the men of Marseilles," and their tatters and their fatigue were the usury of live hundred miles of blazing road. They had been one month so mniarching, and behind them thiy still dragged two cannon-dragged them by leather lanyards, taking turns This last day of their famous raid was hot and cloudless. The sifght of the river alone was cool, past the stubble of the baked ...

All Change. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
All Change. A General tells this story to illus trate the result of carrying military discipline too far. There was a cer tain Colonel who, in the middle of a campaign, was seized with a sud den ardor about hygiene. Hie order ed that all men change their shirts at once. The order was duly carried out except in the case of one company, where the privates' wardrobes had been pitiably depleted. The Captain of- this company was informed that none of his men could change their shirts, since they had only one a piece. When he reported this fact, the ,oloneI hesitated a moment, then said, firmly "Orders must be obeyed. Let the men change shirts with one an other." A well-dressed youth recently stop ped a tattered newsboy and asked him: "Do you think I could sell papers as easily as you do?" The newsboy's reply was emphatic and philosophic. "Well, do you think you, can hold three dozen papers in one hand, lick three or four bigger boys with the other, while yer keeps two more off with yer f...

Clean Songs [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
Clean Songs - By Harry Lauder. It gives me much pride to read the remarks of one of our greatest sol diers, .General Sir Horace Smith-Dor len, in his campaign for a clean stage, and I am entirely with him in his anxiety to keep our amusements free from vulgarity. It is said that the public gets what it wants, and that if there were not a certain demand for vulgarity there would be no objectionable perform ances Whether that be so or not, I think that I can- fairly claim that I have proved by my own achievements that the .public will pay more for a per fectly innocent, wholesome perform ance than it will for anything to the contrary. In the provinces, at all theatres at which I appear for special weekly en gagements; the prices are increased. This is certainly an age of rising prices, and, of course, there is a great deal of grumbling, although the best brains of the country are at work devising ways and means to deal with the problem. But put up placards an nouncing that Harry Laude...

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 February 1917
(To the Editor.) Sir,-Dr. Gerald R. Baldwin knows very little about the Labor voter, or he would know that his vote is not to be caught by the ringing of a tocsin by a sexton. He is a medical man. and he might make a useful experi ment by testing Liebig's atomic theory. Let him take the atoms Labor and Liberal, place them in his crucible -federation or association-ladle them as he may, mix them with all other atoms as he will, and he will find no affinity, but each will find its own magnetic zone when the ballot box appears.
