MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 25 April 1914
MISCELLANEOUS. A patient in a hospital had to be I«&lt;i on a daily diet of egg and port wine. His physician asked him how he lilted it. "It would be all right, doctor,' he eaid, " if the egg was as new as tin port, and the port as old as. the egg!" It was fortunately not often that u man has to grovel so abjectly on ac count of the vagaries of his handwrit ing as the critic of a small paper print ed at Bedford, Pennsylvania, who was a few weeks-'ago made to say in criti cising the part of the leading lady in a local amateur dramatic performance that "lier dirty feet were encased in shoes that looked like ferry-boats." Bedford society was aghast- and no insurance-office would have renewed the premium on the unhappy critic's life until he was able in the next, week's issue to blame the printer and assure the public that what he did write was "ner dainty feet were eD cas ed in shoes that look&d like fairy boots 1" r
WARM WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 25 April 1914
WARM WORK. An amusing story is told by an Indian Medical Service man, who. writing to the "British Medical Jour nal," states that the story was cur rent in his student days. A country doctor, returning from :> visit in the small hours; oE the morn ing, in the time of the. '"body-snal chers," had to pass a secluded buria! ground in which a deceased patient had been interred the day before. When he reached the- wall lie snv a horse and trap standing unattend ed on the road outside,' Looking cau tiously over the wall, he saw that two men had just disinterred the corpse. Standing in the shadow of the wall, he saw them bring out the body and place it in a sitting position on the' seat of the trap, so that when they drove away the body, which they had wrapped in a dark cloak, would in the dim light look like a third man sitting between the other two. They then got over the wall again to fill in the grave. ! The doctor lifted the body down from the trap, laid it under the wall, and seat...

Richmond Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 25 April 1914
Richmond Theatre The Richmond Theatre still maintains its hold on public favor,, the place being well- attended every night in the week, and frequently the sign .' House Full," is to be seen. It goes without saying that such results are only attributable to the merit of the programmes submitted, for patrons of picture shows have now become quite as critical, if not more so, than devotees of the drama, comedy, and opera of the theatrical stage. They are keen judges of art, and the picture theatre authorities who cannot pro duce films produced on the most perfect lines have little chance of attracting the public. Enormous expense is incurred in producing scenes of the most picturesque spots, notable incidents, and startling occurances all over the world, and an army of high salaried artists is engaged in the various centres so as to produce with life like reality in a condensed form, as it were, the world's history. The bioscope has rendered it possible for persons to see the movement...

Miss Ellen Terry. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 25 April 1914
Miss Ellen Terry. '..'"Miss Ellen Terry is a lecturer who does not lecture There is not a word in the English language .which exactly defines the attractive form in which Miss Terry for a space of two hours presents to her entranced hearers the impressions she has developed by a life time's study of the heroines of Shake spear. There is need for some felicitous word to be coined to adequately express the nature of her Shakespearean Recital with illustrative acting. It is essential that it should be understood that those who go to hear her will also see her act And in the course ol: ? one evening she undertakes not one ? ; part, as she would were she appear-. ing in the theatre, but many In one of the series of her recitals Portia, Beatrice, Rosalind, and Yolumnia are presented each with the peculiar grace and charm im parted to them many hundreds of times at the Lyceum Theatre, Lon don. and elsewhere At another time Juliet, Desdemona, Cleopatra, Viola, and _Bordelia pass in success ...

Can the Public Win? [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 25 April 1914
Can the Public Win P In proportion to its population, Australia devotes more time and money to horse racing than any country in the world. It is the gambling element, of course that sustains the racing to such an ex tent, and in '"Life" for May, just published, the question is discussed. " J2as the general public that sup ports the racing a fair chance of coming out on the right side in its transactions with the bookmakers? ' Gr. M. Dash who has had a very long and varied acquaintance with racing, argues the question very closely, and produces a list of arguments and examples to illus trate the felicitous logic of the race course gambler. He analyses many of the systems and superstitions upon which the man-in the-street speculates his money, and shows how futile these are. Without in any way adopting the pulpit atti tude. but merely as a hard headed .business man he reiterates .. Punch's " advice to those about to gamble, " Don't" This is one of a series of special, illustrated arti...
