Breezy. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

Breezy. "I say," said the policeman, as he stopped the belated cyclist, "where's your light?" "Oh!" was the ready reply, "the wind blew it out." "Strange," remarked the policeman, "there was -no wind here; but there mnust have bjeen a terrible gale where you came from, for it's blown away your lamp, too." Indignant Cyclist: Madam, your dog snaps at me every time I pass the house. Here he comes now. (Starts rfe.) Old Lady: Sport! Sport! you foolish dog! Come here. Them ain't bones Them's legs. Mrs. Henpeck: You were talking in your sleep last night, Henry. 4.r. Henpeck: I beg your pardon, m. dar, for having interrupted you. "Do try to display a little more spirit!" exclaimed a professor of t-," cution. "Open your mouth and thin yourself into it!" "You're terribly severe in your re ligion, Donald. I suppose you think we're all going to perdition, and no body will be saved but you and the minister?" "I'm not so sure o' that," said Don ald, thoughtfully. "Ye ken, I whiles hae ma doots a...

A Capital Joke. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

A Capital Joke. He wasn't what one might call a polished gentleman, but he took a great interest in the local school, and sometimes "dropped in to put a few questions to the youngsters." "Now," he said on one occasion, pointing to the smartest boy of the class before him. "Wot's the capital of 'Olland?" "H!" came the reply like a flash, and even the teacher's scowl failed to suppress the snigger that went rip pling through the room.

Greater Economies. SOFFICIAL ACTION IN PARIS. (Correspondent New York "Sun.") Paris. It was many a long month after the war had begun before France could get rid of the feeling that her ally, England, had not yet realised what war was, and now after nearly twenty-eight months of fierce strug gle France, or rather Paris, is begin ning to ask herself if she has as yet realised fully and completely what it means. The awakening process be gan about a fortnight agu, being started by what appearea a trifling matter. An official note was issued that nobody would be admitted into the four theatres that receive a State grant (Opera, Opera Comique, Thea tre Francais and Odeon, until the end of the war, unless dressed in ordinary city clothes. "Any other attire would be rigorously refused admittance." This ukase was issued by M.

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

Ladies' Letter. Our soldiers in hospital in England are becoming quite accomplished, end some of the examples of their em broidery which are being received. Dy their families hrre are beautiful.: One young soldier who is lying on his Lack in England sends, with pride, his first effort, and tells If1 the rivalry in the ward, where ne.irly every pa ient is busily occupied with his needle. This particular work.r drew his own design, which is mlost effec e. A iaorite uesign is a regi mental crest with a bnrder. This special piece of work is quite large and very evenly executed-indeed far better done than the average femin ine embroidered achieves. He ex plains that ladies visit the ward, bring the materials and teach the patients who desire to master needlework. Then on each future visit they watch the progress and give hints. One re mark is suggestive, for he explains: "It is grand to have something to do, and the fellows have been much bet ter since we have been so busy." In New York ...

"Hades Ltd." TAPPING INTERNAL FIRES. POWER THAT AWAITS EXPLOITING. HARNESSING HELL FOR HUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

" Hades Ltd." TAPPING INTERNAL FIRES. POWER THAT AWAITS EXPLOITING. HARNESSING HELL FOR HUNS. The tapping of the internal fires of the earth is nearing realisation. The time is not far distant when hot water will be laid-eon to every house hold, steam to every factory, fire to every place that needs it, and mil lions of motors will be humming with the stored-up dynamic energy bottled up inside the earth's surface. The bells of hell will go ting-a-ling a-ling at everybody's front door. There is nothing strange or wonder ful in such a supposition. The geysers of Iceland, properly managed, could be made to serve a useful purpose. The hot springs, pools and lakes of New Zealand are a mighty purposeful power, w'hich could be harnessed for the use of mankind. Vesuvius and Stromboli have been wasting dynamic force for centuries, just because people are too supersti tious or have not the courage to tackle these mighty machines of energy. There are possibilities in the hot waters which gush ...

Stories of War. EFFECT OF TRENCH LIFE. KILLING YOUR FIRST MAN. SENSATIONS OF THE SHOOTER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

5, Stories of War. EFFECT OF TRENCH LIFE. KILLING YOUR FIRST MAN. SENSATIONS OF THE SHOOTER. Corporal Carnegie sits beside his bed at Randwick Hospital, and uses it as a table. He is so intent on an autograph-book, in which he has painted the colors of each Common wealth military unit, that he does not look up when the sister of the ward brings you forward. Corporal Carne gie is putting the finishing touches to the last page of the book, which bears a rising sun above a crown. The workmanship is fine, and you take him for a practised draughtsman. But no; this is his first flight into the realm of art. Beside the colors of the various units are signatures of boys who have the right to wear the colors. The story of how they gained the right can be guessed by the shakiness of some of the auto graphs. Right hands being out of commission, left hands have had to fil the breach with trembling unwil lingness. Some of the names have been signed by boys who had to hold the pen between their w...

TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

TUFTS OF TURF. Monday Was Lose-the-Lot Day. The Punters Came to the End of their Innings. And the bookies wiped a big slice off the old score. Several of them are riding about in motor-cars again. One of them only has to have three more days successively as good and he figures it out that he will have a machine of his own, and it won't be a kerosene car, either. It needs only a few such turn-ups as blessed the Children of Israel on Monday for them to get well in front of the punter, and with a bit over to boot-the punter soon per booting it again. No doubt about it, some of the bag men could do with Monday's refresher They had struck a warm time indeed: B3ut anyone who goes a-racing can ex pect that. The bookie is generally on a good wicket, but even if you are on the best of wickets you are likely to bump up against something even bet ter. A chap in our carriage last week end held four aces in a poker game yet somebody went one better! Joking. Not a bit of it. But a South Yarra S.P...

The Flow of Shells. WHAT FRENCH FACTORIES ARE DOING. Grenoble, France. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

The Flow of Shells. WHAT FRENCH FACTORIES ARE DOING. Grenoble, France. In High Savoy, almost under Mont Blanc, the most ancient and the most modern shell factories in Europe are night and day pounding out muni. tions for the French cannon on thne Somme. At Allevard, where steel has been made since the time of the Romans, I saw a water power forge yesterday which had been in operation for ovei 500 years, and a few miles away, at Ugines, the most modern electric steel plant in existence, just complet ed. Both were hammering out shells. The old shell forge at Allevard is the most vivid recollection I have af ter trailing through half a hundred war factories in this part of France. It is operated directly by water power, a mountain stream turning a big drum around a shaft. As it turns the drum it lifts and drops the old trip hammer, the ham mer itself shaping a shell that turns beneath it. The trip hammer was built by its fanciful constructor cen turies ago to resemble the head of a hor...

Indian Mutiny is Setting of Exciting Triangle at National. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

Indian Mutiny is Setting of Exciting -Triangle at National.-Adventuress Who Repents is Cleverly Depicted by Kitty Gordon. Telling a dramatic story of the In dian Mutiny, The Beggar of Cawn pore, to go on at the National on Monday, is a Triangle drama of more than ordinary merit. H. B. Warner makes a decided hit as the doctor who sinks to be one of the scum of India and rises again to manhood. His fall is due to morphia, and the steps which set him climbing again are provided by the Indian Mutiny. It is a gripping production in every way. The Reward of Patience, a five reel Famous Players drama, is another feature, and the Australian Gazette should prove of interest. Ora Carew and Bobby Vernon will appear with a bunch of Triangle comedians in The Danger Girl, a "vampire" burlesque. Kitty Gordon has a novel role in Vera the -Medium. She appears as an adventuress with a heart of gold. It is the second big-Selznick produc tion. It deals with a woman who wagers' herself against a thousan...

Soldier's Wife and Family in Hos pital with Scarlet Fever, but Case Goes 'On.-May Have to be Taken to Supreme Court. Rent-lord J. W. Gipson must be be coming weary of his battle to secure possession of the house occupied by Mrs. R. McClelland. The matter came on at the court again on Monday, but another adjournment took place. Mrs. McClelland and her four chil dren are in hospital with scarlet fe ver, and Mr. S. Goldsmith, P.M., ad journed the case for a month to allow of her appearance. When the matter first came on for hearing, the point was raised that un der the Moratorium the proceedings could only issue from the Supreme or High Courts. So the justices decided they would leave the case to be heard by a police magistrate sitting alone. And on Monday Mr. Goldsmith heard a little argument, but, as stated above, he decided to let the matter rest for the present. Meanwhile, Rent-lord Gipson pines for the keys of 38 Cubitt-street, Mc Clelland sits beneath the tropical palms at Rabaul...

THE COLOR OF YOUR HAIR. Gives Away Your Character. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

THE COLOR OF YOUR HAIR. Gives Away Your Character.. That the complexion and also the color of the hair form valuable guides to character is the contention of many character experts. Dark people are generally more romantically inclined than fair people, the latter being usual ly of a practical turn of mind, but as a well-known psychologist once said, "There are no such things as clear cut types, each type being subject to variations." People with coal-black hair usually combine a tendency to melancholy with great strength of character, pur ity and goodness, particularly if their hair be fine. If black hair be coarse and strong a rigid and scrupulously honest character is indicated. Golden hair betrays ardor in love, capricious ness and nervousness. Caprice and nervousness are indicated by hair of an undecided yellowish shade. Auburn-haired people have mudh in nate refinement and purity of charac ter; they are active and energetic, and have a great capacity for both en joyment and suf...

CURIOSITIES OF RUSSIAN TITLES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

CURIOSITIES OF RUSSIAN TITLES Contrary to the laws existing in England and Sweden, in Russia when a lady belonging to a titled family marries a Russian gentleman with out a title she takes her husband's name entirely, and the only right left to her of her former title is to write, on he.. visiting cards and official papi ers, "Mrs. So-and-So, born Princess; Countess, or Baroness So-and-So." Her children are called by their fath er's name. There are only a few ex ceptions to this rule. In Russia there are no - middle class or gentry. The Czar, however, grants sometimes for special merit the right to be styled a nobleman, and. also for the same reason the titles .of count -and baron, - and occasionally that of a prince. All those merchants who have kept their firms always flourishing for a hundred years have the right to re ceive the foreign title of baron. This law was made by Peter the Great over 200 years ago, but the merchants very seldom accept this German title and generally dec...

The Cause of Murder. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917

The Cause of. Murder. I was looking for my latch-key, It had slipped through a tiny hole in my pocket. The discovery of the hole and the loss of~hie key had been made simultaneously. I retraced my. steps slowly. It was a scorching hot day. The sun beat down upon the sidewalkl with relentless fury. Back, back with measured tread I moved .... my eyes burning into every inch of that sizzling asphalt. Suddenly 1: heard another footstep near me, and. the cheery voice of a neighbor broke the stillness. "Looking for some thing?" he said. Mr. Spriggins (gently): "My dear, a friend of mine was shot at by a bur glar, andhis life was saved by a but-. ton which the bullet struck." Mrs. Spriggins: "Well, what of it?" Mr. Spriggins: "Nothing; only the buttons must have. been on." The conjugal dislute waxed loud and furious. Mrs. Blank said, "Yes, yes; it was so!" and Mr. Blank said, "Pooh, pooh! It was not so!" In the end came tears. Then Mirs. Blank fell to reproaches. "I was reading one of your...
