A QUESTION YOU MIGHT ASK [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
A QUESTION YOU MIGHTASK If any of the business estab lishments that you patronise in Richmond do not advertise in the "Guardian" ask the princi pals why. Are they doing their best for Righmond-the place where they get their money-in neglecting to have some manner of an announcement in the dis trict paper? The "Guardian" is worthy of the district-we want more of the tradespeople to come in. We can then make it 4 brighter and better still. ·E:t·- r· r--f··t·~··!·
"Cheero." THE ELAN OF OUR BOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
" Cheero." THE ELAN OFI OUR BOYS. .By" A. G:. Hamlin in "Y.M.": .-"Cheero"-that is the greeting you'll often hear at the back of the lines in Flanders and France; not "Good-day," "How do you do?" or any ;such phrase, conventional and nearly meaningless, but the more blithe and heartening "Cheero!" It is a pregnant word, openly confess ifig that circumstances are not those one would chpoose, and recognising that life is uphill and toilsome; nevertheless, it declares faith and hope are still present to inspire cheerfulness and confidence. On many a rainy night in midwinter I have passed a battalion marching up the muddy road-to sodden, grim trenches. "Cheero, and good luck!" is my greeting, and back comes a strong chorus, "Cheero! Good-night." Those "reliefs" frequently passed as they went to take the places of tired comrades up there in the wretched "salient." The wonder stirred in us when first we saw them never diminished, nor did our admir ation burn low, at the steady cheeri ness...

Annual Meetings at St. Matthias' Many Members at the Front, but North Richmond Church has Satis factory Year. St. Matthias' Sunday-school teach er. held their annual meeting on Mon day.

In proposing a vote of thanks to the vicar, Mr. Cun ningham referred to his painstaking work and to the good results from it. The retiring church wardens, ves trymen and auditors were re-elected. The harvest festival at St. Mat thias' will be held to-mo...

Why She Wept. The other day a servant-girl asked leave of absence for an hour or two, and went to consult a fortune-teller. She returned wailing dismally. "Did she predict some great trou ally.

A Real Treasure. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
A Real Treasure. After addressing a woman's cooking club a famous lecturer was besieged by the members, who questioned him about his own household and about his kitchen in particular. "Are you satisfied with your cook?" someone asked him. "Yes, indeed," was the reply. "Is she economical?" "Very." "Can she make pies and prepare all sorts of soups?" "The best in the land." "Is she neat about her work?" "As tidy as a pin and as attractive in appearance as one would care to see." "How about her disposition?" "I think it is perfect:" "Huh!" exclaimed one of the ma trons, who had been having trouble with her cook. "It's a wonder you don't marry the girl." With a satisfied smile the lecturer replied: "That's exactly what I did." Smith: Good morning, Jones; I hear you have a son and heir! Jones: Yes; our household now re presents the United Kingdom Smith: How's that? Jones: Why, you see I was born in England, my wife in Ireland, the .nurse in Scotland, and the baby wails!"

Paper Shortage. REDUCED SIZE OF JOURNALS "AT HOME." RISE IN PRICE LIKELY HERE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Paper Shortage. REDUCED SIZE OF JOURNALS "AT HOME." ..RISE IN PRICE LIKELY HERE. The French newspapers have been compulsorily reduced to two pages on two days a week and four pages on other days. - The London "Times" has discon tinued the publication of contents bills, and.the price of the paper, which was recently increased from Id. to 1%?d., has been further raised to 2d. So far-.the great majority of Austra lian newspapers have contrived to publish on the pre-war basis, but paper cost and freight rates have in creased so tremendously that in creases must be made in the very near future. The. big city daily news paper companies, with their huge re serves, may. possibly, endeavor to carry on a little while longer at the old rates, but the district newspaper proprietqr is feeling the position so acutely that afteir studying the public for so long he must now, much to his regret, raise the selling price. The paper known as "news" and of which this.jouirnal is comprised has increas ed...

When he was a curate at Thirlford he conducted a Sunday-school class in a neighboring parish. - The subject was King Solomon, and after the lesson he catechised the children.

A Scoundrel's Toll is the Triangle comedy, and the sup porting bill is strong. Charlie Chaplin will dash on to the screen on Thursday nig...
Threat That Won. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Threat That Won. A story is told by Mr. R. G. Knowles, the well-known comedian, of a dispute he once had with a flautist in a little town in America. The flautist in question could never play in tune and to time. "Finally," says Mr. Knowles, "being unable to stand his horrible noise at rehearsal any longer, I whis pered to the leader of the orchestra, "Cut out the flute." "All right," replied that gentleman, soothingly, but rather uncertainly, "'we'll try it again." "We did so, and once more I whis pered, "Cut out the flute." The leader appeared to agree, and again we started off. But things were as bad as ever, and, thoroughly exas perated, I yelled, "Cut out that flute, will you?" Then up rose the flautist and, shak ing his instruments at me threatening ly, shouted, "So you want me cut out, do you?" "Yes; go away and forget to come back!" I answered warmly. "All right!" he roared. "But don't forget this-I'm mayor of this town, and.if I don't play, your show won't get no licence!" ...

Mr. Edward Clodd, the well-known writer on folklore subjects, has just published a delightful book of rem iniscences entitled "Memories." One is told by his father, who was a captain on a merchantman, of Sir John Franklin, the pioneer of Arctic exploration. In May, 1845, Sir John Franklin's ships, the Erebus and Ter ror, anchored in Aldeburgh Bay prior to the journey to the Arctic regions which ended so tragically. Mr. Clodd's father was aboard the Erebus, and talking with Sir John about the diffi culties to be met When he reached the vast continent of ice and snow, the explorer said, "Well, if I can't cut through it I'll bite through it." Mr. Clodd tells the following about George Meredith, who was recover ing from an operation, and was tak ing a somewhat frugal meal consist ing of half an apple pudding.

'I' HER RIVAL. SI met her in a scented room One evening last December, 'Twas when the roses were in bloom Each red rose seeming in the S- .gloom Like some dull-burning ember. She said: "My day's no longer bright, SThe midnight makes me : shiver; .

Love and Good Luck Charms. LONDON GROWING TO BE HOT-BED OF SUPERSTITION. London. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Love and Good Luck Charms. LONDON GROWING TO BE HOT BED OF SUPERSTITION. London. Here is a strange, almost incred Iblie, sight to witness in a great centre of civilnsation in this twentieth cen tury. We are looking into a room in the grimy east of London, a shabby room such as one would expect to find in this poor, bedraggleu region, but a room, nevertheless, whose cheap little ornaments and brave attempts at brightness betray unmistakably that it belongs to one of the fair sex. The hour is the witching one of mid night. Micnight on a F'riday. Standing beside a table in her night attire, and with a rapt look on her young face is a girl, the tenant of the room. She is typical of her class, the class that toils in the factories or grimy Whitechapel and Aldgate. Repeats an Incantation. Surreptitiously and with haste, al though she has locked the door, she uncorks a vial which she has taken from her cheap vanity bag and pours some of its blood red contents into a dish. To this she appli...
Mascottes v. Botanic. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Mascottes v. Botanic. An exciting game ended in a draw. The committee are pleased at the at tendance of older members of late, but for the sake of the younger play ers would like them to remain just a little longer, as a word of cheer very often goes towards a win, which would be more creditable. If anyone should come across Papa Shand, kindly re turn him at once to the Mascottes finder rewarded. Great was the joy when Hughie McAllan appeared. He will don the flannels for the Mas cottes to-day against Astro at foot of Gipps-street in Studley Park. Members to meet on the ground at 2.45.

Ladies' Letter. This is a true story. If it amuses you, I can't help it. A young man call him Peter, his name was some thing else out of the Scriptures knew a lady with three charming daughters. He called on them five nights a week, and took them some where the other two nights. In fact, Jo-1 mean Peter-was quite at home with that family. Last week the mother thought, the time had come to have a heart-to-heart talk with Peter. Not about his intentions-oh dear, no, nothing so early Victorian. She put it in this way: "It isn't very nice for the girls, Peter, that all their friends should ask them why they go out with such a slacker and shirker. What about it, Peter?" The eldest girl, knowing naught of her mother's plan, bravely tackled Peter herself. The second girl spoke much as the other two. Finally, the youngest girl said (in strict confidence) to Peter: "Why don't you enlist?" He has never call ed since. Madame Melba, who has settled down comfortably in a bungalow at Honolulu for...
