Marguerite Clark's Successful Choice of Parts Commented Upon.—Many Look Funny on Roller Skates, but Chaplin Will Cap the Lot at the National on Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Marguerite Clark's Successful Choice of Parts Commented Upon.-Many Look Funny on Roller Skates, but Chaplin Will Cap the Lot at the National on Thursday. Bonnie Marguerite Clark will be starred in her latest success, Silks and Satins, at the National on Mon day. It is a story of the type which Marguerite Clark alone seems to be able to get for the screen. Mary Pickford is wasted in some of her roles-Miss Clark never. Does the difference lie in artistic ability or a more able producer? Silks and Sat ins is romantic, picturesque and charming. See it. London Film Co. have produced a top-notch detective yarn in Arsene Lupin. It is founded on the exploits of the famed French detective of fiction. There is much clever trick photography in the five reels. Minor films of merit figure. Most people look funny on roller skates at one time or another. But fancy Charlie Chaplin on a pair and out to make you laugh! That is the position as far as The Rink is con cerned. It is funnier than expecta ...

Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Personal. The rise of Yarra's representative, Mr. F. G. Tudor, to controver sial prominence is another trou ble to the caricaturist. Barton, Kingston, Reid, Deakin and Hughes have all been godsends to the man who has to be funny in black and white, but Fisher and Tu dor, and perhaps Pearce, defy his ef forts to make good sketches of their somewhat featureless faces. Officers and men of the Yarra Bor derers got to know and appreciate each other during their annual spell under canvas at Broadmeadows. The benefit should be general. Many are the tales circulating regarding the camp. One of the best concerns an incident on the long, dusty march along the Campbellfield-road. During a rest by the way, a company com mander pulled out his pipe and gave the lads permission to do likewise. "Good job for you boys that I smoke," he murmured. "Why don't you drink?" queried a rear-rank man. And in the laughter that followed, the somewhat taken-aback young offi cer joined in as heartily as anyone. ...
Daylight Saving and the Surf—How It Affects Tram Revenue in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Daylight Saving and the Surf-How It Affects Tram Revenue in Sydney. Read this from the "Sun" and see how daylight and surf are apprecia ted here:-Though the Daylight Sav ing Act has come in for considerable criticism, there are at least two councils which look upon the meas ure with a kindly eye. These are Waverley and Randwick, the takings of whose surf sheds have increased enormously since daylight saving has been in force. Taking the month just ended as a standard of compari son, the figures are:-Bondi: Janu ary, 1916, £615; January, 1917, £814 -increase, £199. *Coogee: January, 1916, £724; January, 1917, £786-in crease, £62. Little Coogee: January, 1916, £197; January, 1917, £237-in crease, £40. The increases are in reality probably larger still, for the year 1916 totals are unduly padded by the fact that a large number of troops were in camp within a short distance of both beaches, particularly Coogee and Little Coogee, and the councils permitted them to use the sheds on paymen...
Tragic Lesson Taught by Traffic in Souls at Globe.—Olga Petrova in Latest Film in Same Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Tragic Lesson Taught by Traffic in Souls at Globe.-Olga Petrova in Latest Film in Same Bill. There are two dramatic features. of more than. average power billed at the Globe, Church-street, for next week. The first is Traffic in Souls, described as six reels of amazing re velations. It deals with the white slave traffic, and is said to be based upon the reports of the Rockefeller Investigation Committee and District Attorney Whitman's report. Over 600 people take part in the produc tion, and though it shows the work ings of the "system," it is claimed that it is handled in such a careful manner that there is not a scene to which exception may be taken. The second big attraction is Olga Petrova in The Soul Market. It is the talen ted and beautiful actress' latest pro duction, and is set in stageland. Big opportunities are afforded, and any body who has seen Madame Petrova will not need to be told that she makes the most of them. Commencing on Thursday, another fine bill will be submi...
Wife of Leading Richmond Citizen and Mother of Well-known Family Dies Suddenly at Sorrento.—Mrs. Clements Langford Was Patient Sufferer for Years, but a Woman of Highest Calibre. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Wife of Leading Richmond Citizen and Mother of Well-known Family Dies Suddenly at Sorrento.-Mrs. Clements Langford Was Patient Sufferer for Years, but a Woman of Highest Calibre. Though an invalid for many years, the death of Mrs. Clements Langford, of "Netley," Clifton-street, last Satur day morning, was quite unexpected. With her husband and family, Mrs. Langford had been staying at their seaside home, Sorrento, when she was overtaken by another illness. Dr. Mackeddie went to Sorrento special ly, and gave unremitting care and at tention. Mrs Langford rallied and appeared to be improving splendidly, but another bad turn came on, and she passed away peacefully at 6.30 a.m. Mrs. Langford was a daughter of the late John Coverlid, and a sister of Mrs. W. T. Lampard, Mrs. J. Har rison, Mrs Eadie (South Africa), Mr. Arthur H. Coverlid, Mr. Frank Cover lid, and Miss Coverlid. Her bright intellect and keen foresight play ed a not inconsiderable part in the early success of her husband, Mr....
THE THINKER. Back of the Brawn, the Brain. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
THE THINKER. Back of the Brawn, the Brain. Back of the beating hammer By which the steel is wrought, Back of the workshop's clamor The seeker may find the Thought. The thought that is ever Master Of iron and steam and steel, That rises above disaster And tramples it under heel. The drudge may fret and tinker, Or labor with lusty blows, But back of him stands the Thinker, The clear-eyed man who knows; For into each plough or sabre, Each piece and part and whole, Must go the brains of labor, Which gives the work a soul. Back of the motor's humming, Back of the bells that sing, Back of the hammer's drumming, Back of the cranes that swing, There is the Eye.which scans them, Watching through stress and strain, There is the Mind which plans them Back of the brawn, the Brain. Might of the roaring boiler, Force of the engine's thrust, Strength of the sweating toiler, Greatly in these we trust. But back of them stands the schemer, The Thinker who drives things through, Back of the job, the D...

A deputation from the Richmond branch of the Victorian Operative Bricklayers' Society attended last meeting of the works committee of Richmond Council and urged the council to assist in providing employ ment for brcklayers, and in checking Governments and public bodies in their retrenchment policies as relat ing to building construction.

Misadventure Verdict in Tram Bolt Absolves Motorman and Management, but Trust is Meeting Legitimate Claims.—Strict Inquiry Into Bona Fides of Some Applications. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Misadventure Verdict in Tram Bolt Absolves Motorman and Manage ment, but Trust is Meeting Legiti.. mate Claims.-Strict Inquiry Into Bona Fides of Some Applications. Declaring that the inquiry into the fatal tram boltf at Burwood had been a most thorough one, Dr. Cole, P.M., on Tuesday, gave a verdict that Clar ence I-Iandson, the boy who was kill. ed, met his death by misadventure. Dr. Cole said he saw no evidence oi' criminal negligence on the part of the motorman. There were certain suggestions and theories as to what. had happened to cause the accident, but they could not look for perfection, though they expected that the men should do their duty. There may have been circumstances to cause the motor-man to do things he would not have done *on a different occa .ion. .It was clear .that the. brake was in good order, and it was pos sible, as Mr. McCarthy (the manager) had suggested, that certain opera tions had taken place between the motorman's hands which were not quite in accorda...
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Were the Wives Surprised When Councillors Arrived Home Before Midnight?—An Amendment Which Did Not Get There. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Were the Wives Surprised When Councillors Arrived Home Before Midnight?-An Amendment Which Did Not Get There. Cr. Burgess went up to the council meeting with a bright idea on Mon day night. Not for many months past had the assembly of the city fathers concluded before midnight, though Cr. Burgess and one or two other repre sentatives of the ratepayers have made a practice..of tacitly withdraw-. ing from the chamber before that time. The printed paper which is sent out to each councillor always bears the stereotyped intimation that "the next ordinary meeting of the council will be held next Monday at half-past seven o'clock in the even ing." This is where the idea of Cr. Burgess came in. The old stereo would have to be broken up. In view of the carry-on or carry-over proceed ings, Cr. Burgess proposed to move "that the notice paper should say 'next Monday evening and next Tues day morning.'" But to his great sur prise he was left no room for the suggested action. ...

Ban on "Gym." Girls Soon to be Removed—Young Married Women and Over Seventeeners Knocking at the Door for New Term—Suggested Life Membership for Pioneer Class. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Ban on "Gym." Girls Soon to be Removed-Young Married Women and Over Seventeeners Knocking at the Door for Nlew Term-Suggested Life Membership for Pioneer Class. Satisfactory to everybody, it is prob able that the dispute that has arisen between a majority of the council and members of the girls' gymnasium class regarding certain restrictions which it was proposed to impose on the girls will be settled. As suggested in the "Guardian," an informal talk between Mr. W. Bennett, the gym. ,instructor, and the councillors has gone a long way to smoothing out the apparent misun derstanding. Cr. Morgan, chairman of the Gymnasium Committee, will move at the next meeting of the coun cil that the motion banning the girls be rescinded. It is pretty certain to be carried by. a large majority. The gymnasium has been such a tremendous success that Mr. Bennett has received hundreds of applications for admittance not only from daugh ters of Richmond residents but from young women in distant suburbs. ...
A WEEK AT PHILLIP ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
A WEEK AT PHILLIP ISLAND. By W. McMinn. Having decided upon a week at the above place, I left here on Monday, February 5, for Stony Point, the rail way termihus. A number of passen gers left train at Bittern for Flinders, 15 miles away, per motor. The Naval Base is one and half miles from Bit tern, and from the size and number of the buildings one gets some idea of the huge amount of money being expended here. The dredges are here at work, and daily are towed with their contents to, French Island, where the mud is dumped into the water again. There are hundreds of workmen's tents behind the main building. On arrival at Stony Point we catch the Genista, which leaves shortly after the arrival of the train. We were soon away, and after a lovely run of 35 minutes arrived at Cowes, on the east side of Phillip Is land. It is a very pretty spot indeed. The beaches are splendid, and there are miles of them. There is a fine depth of water all around. I put in the afternoon quietly, and next ...

Getting Even. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Getting Even. "Now, what do you want?" asked the sharp-tempered woman. "I called to see if I could sell you some bakin' powder, ma'am," said the seedy gentleman with the stag gering whiskers. "Well, you can't sell no bakin' powder here, and I ain't got no time to waste on peddlers, anyway." "Come to think of it, ma'am," said the seedy gentleman, as he fastened his bag, "I wouldn't care to sell you any powder. This poky little kitchen of yours is so low in the ceilin' that the bread wouldn't have no chance to rise." "Jim,". said the friend of the taxi cab driver, standing in front of the vehicle, "there's a purse lying on the floor of your car." The driver looked carefully around, and then Whispered "Sometimes, when business is bad, I put it there and leave the door open. It's empty, but you've no idea how many people'll jump in for a short drive when they see it."-"Windsor Magazine." One of the briefest summings-up on record was that of Mr. Justice Maule, who thus addressed the jury...
Wasted Sarcasm. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
I . Wasted Sarcasm. The famous tenor Signor Caruso tells the following good story about a lady, wife of an American million aire, who went to a friend of his, a well-known singing-master, and said she wanted him to train her voice. She explained that she was going abroad in a week or two, and would he please start teaching her at once. "I want," she said, "twenty-five les sons before I sail." "That is quite impossible, madam," replied the master. "You cannot hurry the voice in that way." "Why not?" demanded the- lady. "I've got plenty of time, and I can take two lessons a day." The horrified, master tried sarcasm. "Or, perhaps;" he suggested biting ly, "you would like to take. the whole twenty-five lessons right on end, one after the other." "Splendid!" exclaimed the delight ed lady. "When shall we start?"
