MAXIMS OF SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 April 1917
MAXIMS OF SUCCESS. There is in the "Cornhill": an inter esting character sketch of Sir William Van Home, that marvellous man who, among other great achievements, built the Canadian Pacific Railway. He was a colossal worker, and a few of his sayings are here recorded: "Sleep is a habit, and it is rather a bad habit, like eating." He himself would frequently, under pressure of work, do without sleep for many nights. "We are all born lazy. Some of us get impressions which call for our industry; industry leads to facil ity, and everything becomes easy." "Work! I never work. I never have worked since I-was ten years old and split logs. I have only enjoyed." "The biggest things are always the easiest to do, because there is no competition. Men stand around and laugh and say 'Watch him break his neck.' That leaves one a clear space to work in." Just so!. We remember similar -max ims from other marvellously success ful men; they all smack-of the same cynical philosophy, but there is always ...

A Simple Remedy. The old man of the village was cele brating :his birthday, and a reporter from a neighboring town was. sent to interview him. "What is your advice to those who wish to live to a good age?" asked the reporter. After a little hard thinking the old man replied, "Take my dad's advice, it's simple enough. Always eat when you are hungry, always drink when you are dry; close your eyes when sleeping, but don't stop breathing or you die!" The late Charles Frohman was one of..those people who sometimes rap out a. .retort that. in cooler moments they would wish unsaid. Of one of these, Mrs. Patrick Campbell was the victim.: During a r-hearsal it ap pears Frohman maade a - constructive c'riticiqm .which nettled the actress very much. Going to ,the footlights, Mrs. Patrick Campbell said: "Mr.h. Frohman, I want you to know that, I am an artist." . SFrohman; with, a solemn face, in stantly replied: "Madam, I will keep your secret."
ABOUT HONEY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 April 1917
ABOUT HONEY. Honey, which is now a luxury, was in old times a necessity, for it was the principal sweetener of food. Sugar was only introduced during the latter days of the Roman Empire. and was described first as "Indiac salt" that was sweat as honey! It introduction to Western Eur pe was probably due to the Crusaders, those, admirable agents of international trade. The numerous references to honer in the Bible are due to its being the common sweetener of the people; and to this day the Jews, who are fine old conservatives, use honey in cooking where other people would use sugar. Still, it had a certain distinction and was used as the symbol of fruitfulness and plenty. When Jeroboam's wife wished to propitiate the prophet she took him ten loaves, two cakes, and a cruse of honey. As for John the Baptist, it is known to all that his common food consisted of locusts and wild honey. Honey is not now much employed in cooking, yet many interesting uses have been made of it.

Mr. Tudor in Cheerful Mood While Touring Continent— Big Meeting in Barrett's Cinema To-morrow Aternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 April 1917
Mr. Tudor in Cheerful NIood While Touring Continent-Big Meeting in Barrett's Cinema To-Morrow After noon. Returning on Wednesday from a tour of Queensland, Mr.. F..G. Tudor wore a cheerful smile. "The pros pects are bright," he said:. "So bright that I am inclined to predict a record scoop of seats. We may. take the lot in the northern State."; Mr. Tudor left on the same day for Adelaide, and is returning to Melbourne again on Sunday. Willing workers are conducting his campaign in Yarra while he, as leader of the Opposition, canvasses the con tinent. There will be a "pleasant Sunday afternoon" in Barrett's Cine ma to-morrow. The description scarcely seems to describe an elec tion meeting; but there are reasons. Mir. Barrett has given the use of his theatre free, and there will be no charge for admission. The theatre is a licensed place of amusement. Ques tions might be asked as to opening on Sunday, though in the circumstances it seems unlikely. Senator Findley and others will speak...

Armageddon BATTLE OF FIFTEEN MILLIONS. SETTLING THE DESTINIES OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 April 1917
Armageddon BATTLE OF FIFTEEN MILLIONS. SETTLING THE DESTINIES OF EUROPE. By General Sir O'Moore Creagh, V.C. Sooner than we imagine, fifteen mil lion men will be locked in a deadly embrace, on the result of which the destinies of :Europe will depend; nay -more than that--the future of civi lisation. We speak of the coming offensive as the spring offensive. If the signs are read correctly it will be an early spring offensive.. In February of last year the Germans were flinging a mass of shock, 30 divisions strong, into the outer fortifications of Verdun. In April of the preceding year Mac kensen was beginning his drive on the Dunajec. There is no reason why the 1917 offensive should be delayed beyond March or April- The sooner the is sues are put to the test the better for us. . For the present finds us superior in numbers and munitionment, and the enemy's strenuous attempt to draw level by means of his levy en mas.se is not yet fully under way. The Allies must by now have de termine...
Always Dangerous. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 April 1917
Always Dangerous. "I don't see why people should make so much fuss about flirting," said Mrs. Bangsworth. "In church last Sunday the preacher preached against flirting, and here is a long ar ticle in the paper about the evils of it. Some flirting, of course, is bad, but there's innocent flirting, too, and it may be very pleasant. Why can't they let people flirt and enjoy them selves, as long as their flirting is harmless?" "There's no such thing as harmless flirting," her husband replied.- "We thought our flirting was harmless, and the first thing we knew-well, if we'd never flirted we wouldn't be here now."

A Toast. To our Mothers. May their eyes never be opened to and their hearts never closed to our weaknesses! Tomatoes should always be skinned before being used for salad.

You will find that the skin can be removed without any trouble Bones, a hostler, failed to turn up at the livery yard one morning. "Where's.Bones?" the boss asked. "His father's dead, sir," explained the other hostler. "Oh." The next day again Bones failed to turn up. And the next day still he was absent. "Bones not about?" said the boss. "His father," said the other hostler, "as I told you before, sir----" "Well, look here," said the boss, "you slip on your coat and run around to the Boneses' house and find out if he intends to stay away all the time his father is dead." "I suppose," said the facetious stranger, watching a workman spread a carpet from the church door to the kerb, "that's the high read to hea ven?" "No," replied the man; ...

Witchcraft forms Subject for Lasky Romance at the Natoinal—Blanche Sweet In Convict Role Shows Dangers of "The System." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 April 1917
Witchcraft Forms Subject for Lasky Romance at the National-Blanche Sweet in Convict Role Shows Dan gers of "The System." Fannie Ward, a clever scenario, the Lasky producers and photographers combine to make Witchcraft a not able production. Perhaps the largest share of the honors is due to the pro ducer, who has succeeded admirably in catching the atmosphere and pic turesque quaintness of the New Eng land colonies. The plot is strong, for it carried off the prize in a contest ar ranged by the Columbia University. Witchcraft, and the persecution to which those supposed to practise it were submitted, forms the motif of the drama, and there is a wealth of incident and excitement. The picture will be submitted at the National, Bridge-road, on Monday at the mat inee. Dorothy Dalton will be starred in The Sins Ye Do, striking Triangle picture. Remarkable revelations of the con ditions existing under the American system of hiring out convicts are given in the Famous Players produc tion, Un...
Arguing It Out. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 April 1917
Arguing It Out. "Can you give me, sir," inquired an American tourist of a learned profes sor, while "doing" England, "the rea son for the fresh, healthful appear ance of the English people? Their complexion is far superior to ours or our countrymen over the herring pond." S"Well," replied the professor, "I think it is all owing to the old maids." "Owing to the old maids! Why, you surprise me!" "Fact. You know the English are very fond of roast beef." "But what has that to do with old maids?" "Go slow! This genuine English beef is the best and most nutritious beef in the world and imparts a very beautiful complexion." "Well, about the old maids?" "Yes, you see the excellence of this English beef is due exclusively to red clover. Do you see the point?" "All but the old maids. They are still hovering in the shadows." "Why, don't you see? This red clover is enriched, sweetened, and fructified by bumble-bees." "But where do the old maids come in?" said the inquisitive American, wiping hi...
