Tram Trust Has Limited Insurance Policy Against Accident—Premiums on Car Mileage Basis. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Tram Trust Has Limited Insurance Policy Against Accident-Premiums on Car Mileage Basis. Speculation has been indulged in as to how the Tram Trust will fare in re gard to claims for compensation aris ing out of the smash last Sunday. So far the service has proved a most pro fitable one, and up to date the only compensation paid out was something under £5 to a man who, by some chance, got an electric shock while dismounting from a car on a rainy night. A surplus of £5479 was shown on the working of the tramway in the first nine months up to September 30, and after transfers to renewals reserve, maintenance and sinking funds, there was a net profit of £3005. This surplus was divided amongst the constituent councils of the Trust, Richmond Council getting over £1000. An accident like last Sunday, however, will clean up all the cream in sight for a long time. The Trust is insured against accident claims, the basis, it is understood, being premiums paid on the car mileage run. It is under ...
Pa's Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Pa's. Discovery. There was silence for a moment. . Presently she spoke, and the tone of voice she elected to use was trem ulous and pleading. "Gus,.- dearest, do-do you ever drink?" . Reluctantly he admitted that there were ocasions when he glanced care lessly upon the wine when it was red. "Ah! dearest," she continued, with anxiety depicted on her lovely fea tures, "what do you suppose.papa would say if he should discover that his only: daughter's future husband drank?" "He disco.vered it yesterday after noon," responded Gus, with some of the same old reluctance: "Oh! and what did he say?" she in quired, breathlessly. "He said"--the mahly young fellow's voice trembled-"he Said: 'Well, Gus, my boy, I don't care if I do; mine is the same, with just a dash of bitter.' " The one thing supremely worth the having is the opportunity, coupled with the capacity, of doing a thing well and worthily, the doing of which is for the welfare of mankind. Teacher: "Which little boy can tell me what ...

Carrington's Choice. A ROMANCE. OF A. WILL. Dick Carrington, lounging over his breakfast in. his, chambers in Chel sea, read the notice , of his Uncle Henry's death in the "Times'". with out very much emotion: "H'm! so the old chap has gone," he murmured. "I suppose I ought to be sorry, but it's hard to raise a de cent amount of grief for a relative one has only met about half-a-dozen times, and one who was never over amiable. Irritating. old boy, too. I remember how, ~ihen I was a kid. he would tip me half-a-crown, ask for it. back, aud theni substitute a shil ling. Dick finished his breakfast, and spent the morning" with. his fiance, Lena Grey, in- Kensington . Gardens: He told the girJ of' his uncle's de cease, and added,. carelessly: "Don't suppose h~'s left me any thing, darling,: so you will have to put up with a penniless. young engineer after all." "That is just whiat I 'aift," she smiled.. "I think you are 'just de lightful as a penniless .young engin eer. Besides, you are ...
Petticoats ARE THEY WORN IN SUMMER? [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Pett icoats ARE THEY WORN IN SUMMER? "I wish you'd ask th.e women to wear petticoats!" Even the press wo man was astonished at such a re quest emanating from a man, al though she hoped she concealed the fact. She ventured to opine that the women of Australian cities, including those of Melbourne and Sydney, do wear petticoats, but he flouted the idea, and invited her to stand and watch the feminine world fitting be tween the sunshine and shadow of the summer flooded streets and to. study the silhouette. The result of such observation is rather startling, not because of the silhouette reveal ed, but because the harnessings and trappings with which she distorts her .form are distinctly visible. A normal man. has never objected to feminin ity revealed in bathing costume, so we may deduce that the masculine world looks with disfavor on the scantiness of petticoats solely be cause it offends his artistic sense. We are just as confidently certain that the average dame who exhibits gracefu...
SHOUTING BLUE MURDER. Curious Origins or Quaint Sayings. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
SHOUTING BLUE MURDER. Curious Origins or Quaint Sayings. The curiously free. use of the word "blue" in old-saws and sayings invent ed: by our ancestors .is .apt to-prove pt:zzling to us moderns.:. "Why, for instance, "blue murder"? Why not "red murder"-which cer tainly seems more appropriate? The. explanation is that blue was anciently supposed to .be the color of cowardice, and to "shout blue murder," therefore, came to be indicative more of unfounded terror than of real dan ger. Similarly, a "blue funk" means p state of utter, unreasoning, and unrea sonable panic; and the expression a "fit of the blues" indicates that the person so suffering is in such depres sion of spirits that he is inclined to weakly give up the struggle against fate. The term "true blue," however, has a different origin and significance alto gether. It refers to the belief, once firmly held by everybody, that the veins showing in the skin of persons of noble birth are more blue than those of in ferior folk. "...
What Dad Said. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
What- Dad Said. The beautiful and accomplished wife of one of the very few literary- men who have succeeded in solving the problem of how to make a decent liv ing by writing poetry was recently telling the story of her engagement to a few women friends. "I wanted to marry Bob," she said, "and as he was too bashful to speak to father I tackled the old man myself. "'But,' he queried, after listening to my confession, 'can he afford 'to keep you?' "'I'm afraid he hasn't much means,' I, replied; 'but he says he'll treat me like an angel.' "'Yes, I shouldn't wonder!' grunted dad disapprovingly. 'Nothing to eat, and less to wear!'" A man's good breeding is his best security against other people's ill man ners.
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Ladies' Letter. White shoes and stockings, the lat ter dropstitch.; pearl grey shoes and stockings, perfectly matched cham pagne stockings that are so much the same tone of the unadorned glace kid' pumps that you cannot see where one begins and "the other leaves off, are now all the "go," this with even dark blue chiffon and taffeta frocks. They must match perfectly, or the suave effect is lost. They make the wearer look extremely cool. Buckles are sel dom seen on this style of footwear] -at most, simple ones of the same leather of the shoe. There is a little pointed tongue at the top over the instep, but it is very small, and does not make the slipper look larger on the foot. There is a strange fancy for jet as a wedding present in fashionable Lon don society. The jewellers cannot understand it, for they point out that previously it has always been bought exclusively for mourning. However, the fashion for large wedding pre sents seems quite to have died out in London, for so few wa...

He found them-in his home at Rowena-parade. During the tem porary and unavoidable absence of the person placed in charge, a band of small boys had raided the aviary and carried off 15 canaries. P.C.

The Amazing Mother of a "Soul-Child" A SENSATIONAL PETROGRAD TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
The Amazing Mother of a "Soul-Child" A SENSATIONAL PE"T-ROGRAD TRIAL., Though in the midst of a war to the d-eath, Petrograd is. still. "alive" with its sensational. "soul child" case. It is an extraordinary and complex case. Put into a few words, the Countess Orlov Davydov was cuarged in the Petrograd District Court with conspiring to pass oil upon her hus band a male child that was not his, .n order that she might benefit from the infant's inheritance of the Count Davydov's entailed estates in the event of her being left a widow. There were all the simulations of a real birth for the count to look up on when he returned home-nurses, temperature charts, the smiling mother, and the pleasing infant. But now that the count repudiates the son and heir as his, and seeks to have a declaration of the court to that effect, the countess does not contend that the infant was born to her in any natural sense, but that it is really the "soul child" of them both. She even declares that the count...
Douglas Fairbanks Has Adventurous Time in New York in Film Coming to Richmond Theatre.—Vivian Martin Masquerades as Boy With Amusing Results. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Douglas Fairbanks Has Adventurous Time in New York in Film Com ing to Richmond Theatre.-Vivian Martin Masquerades as Boy With Amusing Results. Laughter will ring out at the Rich mond Theatie on Monday, when Douglas Fairbanks, master comedian, will appear. Fairbanks is always good, and he seems particularly for ,unate in his scenarios. His latest picture, Manhattan Madness, is as good as its predecessors. It tells of a rancher who comes East and finds "little old Noo Yark" somewhat dull. His friends make a wager with him that he will strike enough adven tures within the next few days to satisfy all his cravings for excite ment-then they get to work. There follows a string of stirring happen ings, and with the last few feet of film comes the climax and with it a joke on the audience which it would be unfair to divulge. More fun will be provided by a Keystone, Pills of Peril, and there is a strong support ing bill. Heading a well-varied programme on Thursday will be Her Father's Son, a...

Not Impressed. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Not Impressed. Field-Marshal Sir. Evelyn Wood, who, at the age of seventy-nine (near ly) has recently contributed . some quite cleverly-written articles to the periodical press, tells this story:- An entertainment was given in his honor at his Norfolk home on his return from Egypt. Among the crowd assembled on the occasion was the wife of an agricultural laborer. She was very eager to know Sir Eve lyn Wood, and -a bystander pointed him out to her. "What!" she exclaimed, in amaze ment, "that little man General Wood! Why, my owd man could clout (thrash) him easily!" "Never," said Sir Evelyn} as he concluded his story, "had I felt more humiliated." If you give the ordinary man a chance, he will tell you more about himself in half-an-hour than you could find out in a month by questioning him. "What a cruel chap Nopkins is!" ."`hat's he been doing now?" :"He told me that if my .pet kitten didn't` thrive on fresh milk I was to boil.it,' If a wonmans face. is a poem.it should be i' lineles...

A LEMON. What Can Be Done with It. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
A LEMON. What Can Be Done with It. Never be without a lemon in the kitchen. You've no idea how really useful it is there; while on the wash stand or in the bathroom a lemon will save time and trouble, not to say ex pense. When making a cake which should be mixed with butter, you can use dripping in place of butter if you have a lemon handy. Just beat up the drip ping with a teaspoonful of lemon juice and the cake will taste as well and be as light as if butter had been used. When you are making an apple tart add a few drops 'of lemon juice and see how much it will improve the flavor. Don't throw away the rind after squeezing out the juice, peel it thinly, dry it, and. put it amongst the sugar keep for making cakes. It will flavor it and save buying flavoring essence. For improving the complexion a lemon is often more beneficial than the most expensive creams and washes. To banish blackheads mix a table spoonful of 'lemon juice with half its quantity of rose water and rub well into t...

Thus Field-Marshal von Hindenburg, chief of the German staff, described the present war situation to a press representative whom he re ceived at headquarters in the pre sence of General von Ludendorf, first quartermaster-general. As to the duration of the war, Field Marshal von Hindenburg said: "That depends on our enemies. Pro phesying does not pay; during a war one had better leave it alone. It is possible that the year 1917 will bring battles which will decide the war. However, I do not know, and nobody knows. I only know that we will fight this war to a final decision. The Transylvanian situation is ex cellent. The Rumanians are still in retreat, and the day of reckoning is coming. I welcomed their entrance into the war with joy. By m...
