LABOR'S LEADER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
LABOR'S LEADER. MR. F. G. TUDOR, Again Standing for Yarra. of death. Witness his description of an incident which won for him his stripes. ".. We were out in the open in broad daylight inspecting the shell-holes when we came across three officers and 13 men, all Germans. The moment they saw us the cry was uni versal, 'Mercy, kamerad, mercy,' oft repated. It was amusing-16 well equipped Huns afraid to fight three of us! If they had been Turks it would 'have been different. They were quite pleased when we took them prison ers." It is a simply-told story, but it speaks volumes of the manner of man he was. "It was amusing," was his comment.

Briefly stated, my reasons are:-"I am unable to see eye to eye with the Offi cial Labor Party in regard to important questions now before the country, and I disagree entirely with the executive of that body in expell ing members of the organisation who, so far as I am able to judge, ha re broken no plank of the platform to which they were pledged. I may say that I have taken this step only after loiag and serious consideration. ,-While I am ...
WATER CURES WHOOPING COUGH Wells Whose Waters Are Cure-Alls. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
WATER CURES WHOOPING COUGH Wells Whose Waters Arc Cure'Alls. Although St. Winifred's Well in Flintshire, which recently ran dry after flowing uninterruptedly for countless ages, is the most famous shrine of its kind in Britain,.it is by no means the only one. In Scotland alone there are above a score of holy wells. That of St. Mun go, situated in the crypt below Glas gow Cathedral, is said to cure :bald ness. The Traquair, or "Cheese Well,' on the old drove road from Sel kirk to Carlisle is resorted'to by con sumptives, who throw into the water a votive offering of a piece of new cheese. Near Killin is "Whooping Cough Well," to which are taken children suffering from this distressing ail ment. The water of Muthill Well is also reputed to be a cure for the same complaint; but it is essential that it be drunk from a "quick cow's horn" i.e., a horn taken from the head of a living cow. Lady Cross Well, in Ayrshire, and Grew's Well, in 'Perthshire, are alike famed for the cure of skin di...

The Making of It. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
The Making of it. It was after the clearance sale at the local draper's-he was a real phil anthropist, for he confessed himself that he sold things far less than they cost him-that a small girl turned up at the board school in a new rig-out. The teacher presently proceeded to go through her daily routine of ask ing foolish questions. Eyeing the small child very earnestly, she said, "Who made your vile body?" "If you please, mum," responded the bright little thing, "sister Emma made the body, but mother stitched the skirt!" "Red Indians," declares a mission ary, "paint themselves red for three reasons: they think it keeps away spirits, they think it makes them look ferocious, and because it keeps out the cold." In this country some peo ple paint the town red for almost sim ilar reasons. They have communica tion with spirits which give them the power of making things warm. Sergeants are seldom at a loss for an apt remark. A raw recruit, the sleeves of whose tunic were six inches too l...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
Ladies' Letter. There was showing in a leading shop window last week the most beautiful and costly fur coat that has ever been shipped to this country. It was a full-length garment with the fashionable wide flare, and made of the choicest skins of ermine, and a wide and high collar of sable gave the finishing touch of distinction. The coat, which was marked at seven hun dred guineas, naturally attracted much comment, and standing around the window one heard such remarks as: "Fancy importing a coat like that in war time!" "I wonder if anyone will buy it?" "There is only one wo man in Australia who could wear that coat!" said a man. "There is only one woman who will wear it!" an swered a woman. (This may be taken as a cryptic remark or as merely common-sense.) However, the coat was only on view for a few days, and I grieved when it departed, for it did one good even to gaze on such a luxurious wrap, and it gave rise to such a lot of interesting conjecture. I hear that it has become th...
Breaking the News RICHMOND BOYS FALL IN GREAT ADVANCE. Ambrose Schultz, Jim McNay and John Crimmins in This Week's List. "BILLY" SPAIN ON "BALLARAT." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
Breaking the News RICHMOND BOYS FALL IN GREAT ADVANCE. Ambrose Schultz, Jim McNay and John Crimmins in This Week's List. "BILLY" SPAIN ON "BALLARAT." With gunshot wounds in the knee joint, in a leg and elsewhere, Private "Jim" McNay was conveyed, bleeding and broken, to the 13th General Aus tralian Hospital, after one of the most recent of the fierce battles in which Australian troops have been engaged in France. The young man bore up cheerfully, but there was little hope from the beginning, and his brave spirit passed on April 16. So Jim McNay is another of the gallant band of old Burnley school boys to make the great sacrifice. He was born 32 years ago in South Australia, but came as an infant to Burnley, with his mother and sister, and for the remainder of the years until he went away on September 7, resided in the Richmond district. McNay did not spend a very long time in training, but volunteered for reinforcements, and was sent to France earlier than would otherwise have been ...
Hoarding Gold. WAGE EARNERS REFUSE TO INVEST SAVINGS. London. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
Hoarding Gold. WAGE EARNERS REFUSE TO INVEST SAVINGS. London. Hoarding of gold by the working people, small tradesmen, munition workers and many other classes has become a serious cause of concern. The efforts of bankers, business men and Treasury authorities to mobilise the resources of the nation have been wonderfully successful generally, but multitudes of people who have never learned to invest their savings are earning huge wages. They know that gold is absolutely safe, and they are not sure of anything else, so they are keeping it from circulation and hiding it in strange ways. Complaints to the police about thefts of these hoards develop the ex tent of the practice. An Irish laborer asked the aid of the police in finding the thief who stole £300 in gold he had hidden between the roof and the rafters in his cottage. One London Magistrate found that people of the poorest classes came before him to pay fines with their pockets filled with gold sovereigns. He has started ordering...
A GRIM DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
A GRIM DISCOVERY. A strange experience is recalled, by the recent death of Lady Vane, widow of Sir Henry Vane. uhostly noises were heard in the walls of her house, as though someone was trying to get up a chimney and kept talling down again. Becoming worried by the noise, Lady Vane determined to as certain the cause, so one aay she had the wall opened. A lofty closet was discovered, narrowing into a funnel at the top, where it opened by a small iiole in the root. In the cavity were the cover of a Bible bearing a date, a broken water-bottle and human iiones. T'he latter were gathered up and placed in a box, which was put in her ~iusband's room to await his return. Ihen he arrived, Lady Vane decided to say nothing about the matter until the following day. Hie went to his room to rest, and after a while there was a fearful noise. Running in, Lady Vane found her husband in a state of trepidation; he had seen, he said, the apparition of a woman in a corner where the box was resting. Lady...
BOOK AUCTION ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
BOOK AUCTION ROMANCE. Mr. F. H. Green, wine merchant,. of 30, Cornhill, sends the following .to "'The Sphere":- - A few years ago, at a country auc tion sale, I had the good fortune to purchase a copy of the first edition of "'Paradise Lost," with the fifth title page dated 1668. It was a beautifully uound copy, in the original sheep, with coronets and initials on the cover, and the signatures of several members of a noble family on the Ily leaves and other pages. This book at the auction cost me 6d. It was one of twenty knocked down to me at 10/-. All the other books were of quite good value. Having been through the lots before the actual sale, I knew this copy of Milton was in that particular lot, and it was de scribed in the catalogue as "twenty volumes-various." Most of the deal ers were at the sale, but they did not see that volume until after the lot had passed into my hands. I kept that cook very .choicely for some years, and at the tercentenary celebration of MTilton a few y...
AMERICAN GENEROSITY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
AMERICAN GENEROSITY. For generosity towards a conquered foe, the record of the United States is difficult to beat. It was in 1898 that the States had a little difference with spain. Spain was, of course, badly beaten, and in the end was obliged to cede Cuba, Porto Rico, the Ladrone Islands, and the Philip pines, an area of territory about three times the size of England. But so that there should be no soreness, the States actually paid over £4,000,000 to the Madrid Government, and, more than that, returned all the Spanish soldiers, together with their arms, paying the whole bill of trans port and other expenses. This is not the first time that Wash ington has been equally generous. After the Mexican war of sixty years ago, when she had taken California and other huge territories from that country, she paid over to the van quished nation a very considerable in demnity.
