"THE SONG OF THE WHEAT." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
"THE SONG OF THE WHEAT." Green and amber and gold it grows, When the sun sinks late in the west, And the breeze sweeps over the ripp ling rows, Where the quail and the skylark nest; Mountain or river, or shining star, There's never a sight can beat Away to the skyline, stretching far A sea of ripening wheat. When the burning harvest sun sinks low, And the shadows stretch on the plain, The waring strippers come and go, Like ships on a sea of grain; Till the lurching, groaning waggons bear Their tale of the load complete. Of the world's great work he has dene his share, Who has gathered a crop of wheat. Major A. B. Paterson ("Banjo"). After the Lord had made the bril liant man, the genius, and the star performer, He knew the'world would never get anywhere with them alone in it, so He made the hard worker and made him in quantities. You very seldom hear of a youpg and beautiful girl falling in love ,iih and marrying an 80-year-old man who hasn't a dollar to his name. One of the things ...

Opinion of Municipal Solicitors Supports Mayor's View of His Powers—Like Caesar of Old, His Rule is Absolute and Supreme. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
Opinion of Municipal Solicitors Sup ports Mayor's View of -His Powers -Like Caesar of Old, His Rule is Absolute and Supreme. On the question of the ruling of the Mayor to which Cr. Barcelo recently took objection, the opinion of the solicitors of the Municipal Associa tion was now to hand. It supported the position taken up by the Mayor that his ruling was final and absolute. Cr. Barcelo had dissented from a ruling by the Mayor (Cr. Fear) on a point of order, and desired to move that the council disagree with that ruling. The Mayor refused to re ceive the motion, contending that un der the Local Government Act the Mayor's ruling was final. Cr. Bar celo ultimately induced the council to refer the question to the Municipal Association. The association, in reply, forwarded an "opinion" from its solicitors that Parliamentary practice is not applic able to the conduct of municipal meetings. The opinion further stat ed:-"We do not think that in muni cipal councils working under part XI. o...
Richmond Council Meeting Over Before Midnight—Items of Minor Interest Promptly Disposed of. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 April 1917
Richmond Council Meeting Over Before Midnight-Items of Minor Interest Promptly Disposed of. At the meeting of the Richmond Council on Monday night Mayor Fear submitted a report on the results of the recently-held conference of muni cipalities to consider the unemployed question. It was stated that the building trade had been much affected by the war conditions. It was be lieved that over 1600 men in the building trade were out of work. The conference had listed a number of works which they believed might be carried out, but the Premier had de clined to receive any deputation on the subject. Only seven councils were represented at the conference. It is but fair to state that the Govern ment admits the existence of unem ployed, and, with regard to the neces sity for conserving the public funds, considers that everything possible is being done. "We don't want an inquest" was the comment when H. Perry and Co. applied for permission for a represen tative to carry firearms for banking pur...

The German People will End the War. A Prophecy of Defeat for the Kaiser at the Hands of the Populace. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
The German People will End the fWar. A Prophecy of Defeat for the Kaiser - at the Hands of the Populace. SBy Pearkes Withers. History has a knack of repeating it self, and it is about to repeat itself in the case of Wilhelm II. of Germany. Within the space of a very few months the pedple of the Fatherland will turn savagely upon their savage monarch, depose him, destroy him, trample his banners in the dust, and fling the whole of the tainted Hohenzollern family from their proud positions and their elaborate palaces on to the scrap-heap of Red Revolution! Germany is smouldering from one end to the other. Directly, she will burst violently into flame and the war will end in a conflagration which, while reminiscent of events of other days, will be on a scale beside which all bygone revolutions will pale into insignificance. There will be no need for the Allies to split the German Em pire up into the little states and king doms and principalities of which she was originally composed. Be...
THE COWARDICE OF BRAVE MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
THE COWARDICE OF BRAVE MEN. Men in the trenches, now quite Sused to the war game, have been de scribed as feeling "jumpy"-the sort Sof affliction that z used to be called ".mauseritis." Here is a state of mind not necessarily blameworthy, nor even unsoldierly, the bravest have experienced it. The feeling is given various names; as when a young no bleman was sent to the hospital suf fering from "heart paralysis." Be ing immature, a- mere youth, his heart, in fact his-whole body, was un developed-a man in spirit, but not yet in body. Being so conspicuous a figure, it was up to him to display the supremest courage; and, of cojase, he made good. All the same, there was a profound shock to his physical organism; and -something had to evidence that shock. His soul wa. strong and brave; but to his physical being, with.its subconscious well-to-live, was afraid; and no shame to it or to its princely owner. Why should men get equivocal about fear on the battlefield; why not frankly call it th...
Expert Criticism. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
Expert .Criticism. .A good' story is to1d of -Sir Edward Poynter, the veterahfPredident of the Royal Academy, who passed the eightieth milestone of his life during the year that is just gone. It concerns his famous picture "Is rael' in Egypt," which depicts a long double string Qf Israelites wearily dragging a huge statue of a sphinx across a desert of yellow stand. While he was painting it, Sir John Hawkshaw, the eminent engineer, chanced to visit him in his studio. Greatly to the artist's surprise, Sir John, after gazing earnestly for some two or three minutes at the partially completed -picture, started to jot down a 'number of figures on an old en v elope. When he had finished, he turned to the puzzled artist and exclaimed: "Poynter, this will never do. The weight of your sphinx is so many tons, and your Israelites are only de veloping so much. horse-power--not nearly enough to drag it. You must double the number of 'your Jews. And he did.

It was visiting day, 'nd"'the wards and their inmates had teceived, an extra "wash and brush tip" ,for the occasion. ".At the extreme end of one of these loig wards, on a bed in the corner exactly -opposite the door, a- brawny Canadian half sat, half reclined, his. eyes scanning each new-comer with' anxious eagerness. At last - his pa tience was rewarded. A woman de tached herself from a group of peo ple at the door and made her. way un hesitatingly towards him. Her pro gress was necessarily slow, for a small boy of some three years old' was clinging to her hand. As they passed bed Number 26, the woman was saying in a sweet grave .voice, "Yes, dearie, that. is Daddy in the corner." The occupant 'of bed Number 26, a bigly-built Canadian of about thirty five, with his left arm in a sling, started violently, and looked intently at the speaker. But her head was ...

REMARKABLE FACTS ABOUT EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
REMARKABLE FACTS ABOUT EGGS. The latest research proves that 1200 eggs hold all the chemical ele ments contained in a man weighing 1501b. This does not mean that if you make an enormous omelet of these 1200 eggs a man would be pro duced. It does signify, however, that the elements in the eggs would be equal to the elements in a man. If a person were to eat nothing but, eggs he would get just the chemicals needed for supporting life, but the system would not digest an exclu sive diet like this. The person trying to live on eggs alone would soon sicken, and if the diet were not chang ed would die. If an average man, weighing 1501b., I were reduced to a fluid he would yield 3630 cubic feet of illuminating' gas and hydrogen, or enough to fill a balloon that would carry 1551b. If the normal human body were taken just as it is and all of the ele ments extracted from it there would be found enough iron to make seven large nails; enough fat for fourteen 11lb. candles; enough carbon to make ...
Labor in Vain. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
Labor in Vain. Two or three sailors on an outward bound vessel had entered into a con spiracy to obtain, by fair means or foul, a share of the liquor which they knew to be stored away in the cabin of the chief officer, who was the great er part of his time in a state which is generally described as "half-seas over." After much cogitation, it was st tled that one of the plotters should be lowered over the bulwarks by a rope, until he reached the level of the cabin window. M.aking an entrance by this means, he was to seize the first bottle that presented itself, return to the .rope, and be drawn back to the deck by his waiting friends. This arrangement was carried ouc to the letter while the chief officer slept, and the adventurer reached the bulwarks again laden with a large wicker-covered bottle, which he handled with tenderest care. Whis pers of congratulation passed around. What did it contain? Rum? Brandy? Champagne? Whisky? Knives were produced, the wicker covering cut away, and...
