There were men in the crowd from all of the professions and trades; doc tors and lawyers, ministers and under takers, actors, and just plain bums. Some came because they were "down on their luck," and some because they wanted to see themselves in the films. Others wanted a joo, and wanted, it ladly; while still others came for fun;. or because they were trying to "break nto the gare." Within a short time a thousand men were hired, taken to a tract of open fields not far fr...
Driving the Point Home. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Driving the Point Home. The small boy had on a recent birthday been the happy recipient of a cheap airgun, and, wearing an im provised helpmet, he sauntered into the backyard in quest of big game. He was soon rewarded by the sight of a fine "tiger" (in the shape of the next-door cat) enjoying a nap on the fence. Click! The dart struck the "tiger" and stuck. Puss hurried homeward, and with her went the small boy's ammunition. The next minute the juvenile sportsman was ringing the next-door bell. "Please, ma'am, your cat's been thieving!" he piped. "I thought there was something wrong when I saw her making a dart just now," said the lady of the house. "P'r'aps," said the small boy, "p'r'aps, ma'am, you wouldn't mind handing me back the one she used as a pattern?. It's mine."

The SEED of EMPIRE By FRED M. WHITE, Author of "The Day," "The Crimson Blind," "The Law of the Land," "The Corner House," etc. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., London & Melb. CHAPTER XLVI. The Deeper Meaning. It was little that the returned Mus keteers needed in the way of amuse ment or recreation just now, for it was only when the bow was relaxed that they began to realise the strain which they had gone through. The mere fact that they had nothing to do was in itself a luxury after all that they had gone through: It seemed strange, too, to get between clean, comfortable sheets, to sleep the night through and wake in the morn ing to luxury and comfort. Indeed, at first, this had been rather a diffi cult matter, but at the end of two or three days they were getting into it, and it was only then that they began to discuss their past experien ces. After all, there seemed to be nothing to say, and the things that: Nettie and Dorothy followed with breathles...

Expensive Shops ARGENTINA, WHERE THE COST OF LIVING IS HIGHER THAN IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Expensive Shops ARGENTINA, WHERE THE COST OF LIVING IS HIGHER THAN IN AUSTRALIA. Does your husband complain of the high cost of living? Then let him have a sample day in South America. I here he would expend 2/- in a stick of soap for his morning shave, the rame price on a cake of Pears' for his morning tub, another 2/- for a tooth brush, 2d. for his daily paper, and 1/6 for a plain linen handkerchief. As for his morning egg-well, if any temperamental hen thinks her crea tive ability is unappreciated in Aus tralia, let her move to that Promised. Land where each egg will sell for 7d. This expensive scale is due in part to high rentals and taxes, and in part to the habit of fine clothing. For in the South American business world p?rsonal elegance is not a luxury, but a necessity; and, while in mining and farming regions you may wear shoes that cost only 2/6, in business life, if you would meet with any success, you must pay £2 10/- to £3-at least for your shoes, with the rest of your ...

THE SEVEN AGES OF MAN—NEW STYLE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
THE SEVEN AGES OF MAN NEW STYLE. First the .infant; but not mewling in his nurse's arms. Absurdity! Not even rocked! .But laid hygienically on a hard bed, and fed predigested food through a sterilised glass tube, at -stated intervals, by a graduate Baby Nurse. And then the schoolboy, proud of the fact that he has had his tonsils, -adenoids and appendix removed by some world-famed surgeon. Next comes the lover, with a ciean bill of health from the Eugenics Comr mission. Then behold the soldier, who has made his record in tests for the value of proteids and legumin as food in gredients. Next see the justice, on a diet; warned by his specialist to avoid late suppers, violent exercise, and to cut out pie and cheese. The sixth stage shifts into the com plaining limper, trying every newly recommended method of massage, and mud and sulphur baths; to get the chalk out of his joints. Last scene of all, that ends this strange, eventful history, is Grandpa, alternately swallowing pellet and po...

THE FIRST TRAM "ACCIDENT." (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
THE FIRST TRAM "ACCIDENT." (To the Editor.) Sir,-I would like to bring under the notice of residents a case arising from a happening which may not'be forgot ten by them, though it very evidently has been by others. On the day of the trial run of the first electric tram along Swan-street something went wrong with the works, and a man, Mr. W. Hockey, of Docker-street, working on the overhead wires, was suddenly thrown to the ground. He has been a cripple for eight and a half months. The Tram Trust disputes his claim, and have not done anything for him. He has a wife and three children de pending upon him and is not yet strong enough to perform :-hard Work. Something should be done 4to enable him to obtain simple justice. Yours faithfully,. ., . ,; "A NATIVE OF RICHMOND." : _ .~ · ...... ,.

Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Personal. Mr. Christopher Johnson, for many years foreman for Coffey Bros, coach builders, has knocked off drawing wages for himself, but is handing them out to others. He has gone into busi ness on his own account, taking over the coach and motor works of Mr. J. Wilson, in Church-street. There are few better known or more respected men in the "trade" than Chris John son. He knows every point of it. Dan White, the Auburn Co., and other lead ing firms had his services before the Coffeys shook hands with themselves. He planned and supervised the special work there. If a sound knowledge of all the essentials of the business counts for anything, Mr. Johnson will soon get ahead. Cr. Winm.
