Notes From the Churches. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
Notes From the Churches. The children's mission held at St. Matthias' last Sunday was a pro nounced success. The scholars mus tered in the school hall at a quarter to three and marched in procession to the church, with banners flying, singing the opening mission hymn. The school prayers were said by Mr. McKenzie, the superintendent, and the children recited the 23rd Psalm. Specially-selected hymns were sung. The feature of the service was the fine address by the Rev. R. Hamilton, of Ivanhoe. The subject was "There is a lad here" (St. John vi., 9). The church was -well filled by children, parents and teachers. The mission was arranged as a preliminary to the general diocesan mission which will be held this year. Mr. Hamilton also preached at the evening service. At the meeting of St. Matthias' branch of the C.E.M.S. on Wednes day, the members discussed means for the society to increase its effi ciency. It was decided to hold an admission service at the church at an early date, when i...
"The Empire in the Furnace of War"—St. Stephen's Minister Gives Interesting Address. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
"The Empire in the Furnace of War" -St. Stephen's Minister Gives Interesting Address. Under the auspices of St. Stephen's Men's Association, the Rev. S. Deu-j char, acting incumbent, gave a lecture in the Parish Hall on Tuesday even-i ing, April 24, entitled, "The Empire in the Furnace of War." Having been In England at the out break of hostilities and for some time afterwards, Mr. Deuchar was an eye witness of many things that he de scribed. In opening, he said that the wonderful unity of the Empire had never been understood till now. Nat-, ional chraacter had been fully reveal ed. Many thousands of men who had never given a thought to war, as, for example, many shop assistants and men in similar walks of life, threw in their lot quickly when the call came. And these men were volunteers! He described the formation of Kitchen er's Army from absolutely raw ma-' terial, poorly equipped, and mostly wtihout weapons, for the seriousness of the situation had not then dawned on the nation....
Opening of Harriers' Season at Brighton To-day. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
Opening of Harriers' Season at Brighton To-day. The combined opening run of the metropolitan harriers will be held this afternoon at Brighton Beach, where all members of St. Stephen's Har riers, old and new, are asked to as semble in force. The attendance will, of course, be much smaller than in pre-war times, when as many as 500 runners have "followed the trail" at this fixture. Realising that a large number of junior members will be present at to-day's outing, the V.A.A.A. are making their plans accordingly, and the run will be much shorter and easier than usual. Junior runners are urged to attend and keep St. Ste phen's in the forefront.

*WHY OUR HAIR TURNS GREY. While, in the majority of cases grey hair is a sign of age, there are many ins.tances where the possessor of grey hair is but a young man or young 'o man, perhaps the most often amoug the latter. The cause of the hair turn hin . rey is- something that p'uzz!e, the doctors. The color of the h.ir i: due to the deposit of pigment in the interior of each hair, and greynes" follows the losS of this pigmant. That is self-evident, but the puzzle is what .causes the pigment to disanpo-'r. Some have believed that it is due to the drying of the hair, which cnauser. a shrinkage of its fibres, andr so ?l lows the entrance of air bubbles. !he refraction of light from which tlhoi gcives t:he white appearance. The proof- which is adduced in support of tlfs' belief is that if a grey hai- i: ::d. into' the receiver of an air pump and the air is then exhausted, the color of the hair may return more or l]e- completely.

TOPICS OF THE WEEK. The Passing of Councillor Kemp.—A Straightgoer Who Didn't Float With the Tide. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. The Passing of Councillor Kemp.-A Straightgoer Who Didn't Float With the Tide. Cr. Kemp's resignation as a repre sentative of the West Ward dropped like a spent bomb into the meeting of the Richmond Council on Tuesday night. It was unexpected, but there was no explosion. Cr. Kemp has been such a hard and bitter fighter against the Caucus majority in the council that it was not thought at al likely that he would resign ot his own volition. Cr. Kemp, however, is only another of the conscientious representatives of the ratepayers who have sickened at the sight of the way the Caucus party has forced its octo pus-like grip over all things that come within its grasp, and has tired of the contumely that has been heaped on him for doing that which he consider ed to be right. The rejection of a motion by Cr. Kemp giving direct pre ference to the men who have fought for the country is stated by Cr. Kemp to have been the last straw that swayed him in his decision. It is qui...
Mae Marsh and Bobby Harron (Stars of Intolerance) in Exciting PhotoPlay at Globe.—Last Night of Mr. D. Cornwallis. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
MaedMarsh and Bobby Harron (Stars of Intolerance) in Exciting Photo Play at Globe.-Last Night of Mr. D. Cornwallis. Donald Cornwallis' novelty, The Veil of Kismet, will be submitted for the last time at the Globe this after noon and evening. The picture was produced by Mr. Cornwallis, and is enacted by Australian artists. Mr. Cornwallis appears as Father Time, and is assisted by Violet Leonie. Acclaimed by many as the finest pair of actors on the screen, Mae Marsh and Robert Harron will be seen at the Globe on Monday in The Wharf Rat. The artistic powers of these favorites may be gauged from the fact that D. W. Griffith chose them to interpret the boy and girl in the modern story of Intolerance. In The Wharf Rat, Mae Marsh figures as Polly, an orphan. Disguised as a boy by her grandfather, the pair earn a living as vagabond musicians. Com plications commence when Bobby Harron, as a young law clerk, comes upon the scene and falls in love with the girl-boy. Exciting happenings follow,...
The Army Mule. FAITHFUL WORKER AND HARD TO KILL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
The Army Mule. FAITHFUL WORKER AND HARD TO KILL. .Two..years and a half of the grim mest war in history have wrought the triumph of at least one American in stitution-the army mule. He. has been weighed anew in the scales of battle, proved on the fire-swept fields of France and Flanders, and not found wanting. In warm winter coat and with long, inquisitive ears flopping back and forth in the breeze, he marches up among the roaring guns with a steady nonchalance that lends confidence and faith to the fighting men who depend so much upon him. From Missouri, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Texas and other stock farms in the South he has journeyed to the war and comes into his own. The much maligned, supposedly stub born, baulky and generally pestifer ous mule has won a place in the heart of the British Army from which he can never be dislodged. He was quite an asset in the South African cam paigns, but now is a real aristocrat of the transport serviqe,, "A Most Magnificent Creature." ...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
Ladies' Letter. The fine body of young women who marched in the procession on Eight Hours' Day, representing the muni tions workers, evoked expressions of. marked approval .fr.o the. onlookers.' The well-made figures were shown to advantage in the simple uniform ::of white blouse, with blue skirt, tie and band to the white hat. Their move ments were free and rhythmic as they marched to the music of the accomn panying bands. Evidently the sol diers who preceded them knew they. were in line behind, for, as soon as the disbanding point was reached, a cry went around to wait for the girls, and at their appearance cheers went up. Of course the soldiers found many friends among the munitions workers and, as the band played "Just One. Girl," they marched off with them, happy for .the day. No wonder every, woman has rushed to get herself a fur coat. It is whis pered that the very first thing that "Billy" intends to prohibit from com ing into the country are fur coats. And without takiing a ...

SCRAPS OF FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
SCRAPS OF FOOTBALL. By "Wideawake." The Old Heads A bit too clever For the lads from the seaside town. The first half was well contested. The Juniors played a .fast and clean game, and kept the wearers of the yellow and black uniforms moving. In the second half the condition and experience of the seniors told, and they had much the best of things, running out easy winners. Scores: Richmond, 14 goals 11 behinds. Williamstown Juniors, 3 goals 12 behinds. Several colts were tried out by Richmond. The older players gave them every opportunity to show their capabilities. Those who stood out from a good lot were Gleeson (half back), Don (wing), and Erickson (following). Of the old hands good form was shown by Hall, Alessio, Richardson, Cronk and Taylor. Keggin and Moffat, with the object of working off their surplus fat, did a lot of ruck work, and they need it. The pair tip the beam at 31 stone. After the game Secretary MIay bury congratulated the Williamstown Juniors on the friendly spi...

Hohenzollern Dynasty KAISER URGED TO SURRENDER HIMSELF TO ALLIES. GERMANY'S RULER FACES DISCONTENT WITHIN THE EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
Hohenzollern Dynasty KAISER URGED TO SURRENDER HIMSELF TO ALLIES. GERMANY'S RULER FACES DISCQONTENT WITHIN THE ;, EMPIRE. (By Cunliffe-Owen in the 'New York "Sun" of January 28.) Emperor William celebrated his fifty-eighth birthday yesterday. Un til *the beginning of'the war the iin niversary was an occasion 6f festiv ity at court and national rejoicing on the part of his people. With all his faults they had much to be thankful. For despite his sabre-rattling and bel licose menaces, he had given them more than a quarter of a century of peace and of unparalleled and phe nomenal prosperity. The contrast between those birth days and the one which was celebra ted yesterday must have been to him little short of appalling. The pros perity of the nation subject to-his rule has vanished, according to all appearances, for generations to come. All his people are plunged into mourning for those who have perish ed in fighting at his command or who have suffered permanent disablement an'd mutila...
TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. SHa! Ha! Ha! The Moonee Valley "Club." There are some jokes and some * jokers. This is about as good as we have seen or heard. When the Government brings down the bars on proprietary racing, will the Valley "Club" now be spared? Punters will hope so, anyhow-if there are many more days like Mon day, when the bookies got Larry Dooley, Eric Connolly and Cecil Godby-o with a vengeance, and there were all the little fish to feed as well. Some of the bookies made a des perate effort to even up things over the good-bye Purse, but they only got further in the mire. Mossy Jacobs actually laid six fifties in one hand about Red Corn. Six fifties! We wonder if Mossy has since had any sleep-and to Cecil Godby, too! There was, from a general view, only one little speck on the Valley meeting. Poultry-shop Johnston, from Swanston-street, was for once in a way unhappy in his effort when he sent the horses offjor the Steeple chase as if they were in a time-handi cap trot, and in at lea...
Submarine Chasers. BRITAIN'S ANSWER TO SUBMARINE BLOCKADE. GREAT FLEET OF "SEA WASPS" BUILT IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
Submarine Chasers. BRITAIN'S ANSWER TO SUBMARINE BLOCKADE. GREAT FLEET OF "SEA WASPS" BUILT IN AMERICA. (By R. T. Rich in the "New York Sun.") Britain has found a way to combat the German U-boat menace, and she owes it to America, to Uncle Sam's inventive and constructive genius. For some time insistent rumors of a strange new addition to Britaii's Navy have been heard, rumors of a type of boat so small yet so deadly to sub-sea raiders that the Kaiser's latest campaign of frightfulness was doomed to failure from the start. These rumors have at last been con firmed. Britain is known to have at least 550 of these newest of naval weapons. Picture a long low craft, 80ft. from stem to stern, with a beam of 12½t ft. and a speed of 19 knots per hour, with a draught of only 4%ft. and a displacement of but 30 tons, yet with sea-keeping qualities that have never been equalled by so small a craft. Pic ture a mosquito fleet of .these "sea wasps," hundreds of them, keeping up their vigil day and...

It's no use for a mnn to buy any thing for his family; his wife always knows where she could have got the same thing cheaper. The teacher was telling them about the different seasons.
