NO TIME FOR A LOAF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
NO TIME FOR A LOAF. Some time ago, when a local corps was reviewed by the late Brigadier General Glasfurd, one of the officers was mounted on a horse that had pre viously distinguished itself in the bakery business. Somebody recog nised the horse and shouted "Baker!" The horse promptly stopped dead, and nothing could urge it on. The situation was getting painful, when the officer riding it was struck with a brilliant idea, and remarked, "Not to-day, thank you." The pro cession then moved on. - Sydney Sun." The young man who is not fired by enthusiasm will soon be fired by the boss. Commanding Officer (during sham battle): Your dompany is to charge across:that field and attack. the enemy beyond. Captain: But, I say, how about those three vicious-looking bulls in that field? Commanding Officer: Oh, that has all been provided for in the rules.

Love and a Mystery. The Duchess of Dartmocr's ball was one of the great events of the London season, and the magnificent ballroom of Dartmoor House, great as was its accommodation, was un comfortably crowded. Everyone who was anyone was present, and the value of the jewels and the dresses on show would have ransomed a dozen kings. From an alcove Lieu tenant Hector Hampden and his friend, the Honorable Cyril Bertram, Under-Secretary to the Admiralty, surveyed the brilliant scene as they chatted together, nodding occasion ally to friends who passed. "Look!" exclaimed Bertram sud denly. "There is the girl to whom you lost your heart at the opera last night, Hector. Jove! but she is beau tiful." Hector Hampden followed his com panion's glance, and his eyes glowed as they caught sight of the girl...

Unemployment.-Little Work in Country Districts. The town clerk has received numer ous replies to his circular letter from country districts with a view to pro viding employment for men out of work in the building trade. In the majority of cases the replies are to the effect that there is no work suit able for men in the building trade in fact not enough to keep their own local tradesmen employed. In a few instances vacancies for farm laboring and maize-picking have been notified. The conference is to wait on the Pre mier at an early date on the question.
The Case for Labor ANOTHER LARGE GATHERING AT THE CINEMA. PAINTED WORDS AND PICTURESQUE PHRASES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
The Case for Labor ANOTHER LARGE GATHERING AT THE CINEMA-. PAINTED WORDS AND PICTURESQUE PHRASES. There is a peculiar element in a big political Labor rally which al ways makes itself felt. Call it a brain, a soul, or what you will, it is there. It characterised the gathering in Barrett's Cinema on Sunday after noon. Over 4000 people were pres ent, but they acted as one. They ap plauded together and hooted to gether. If they liked a thing they made it evident, and about all that big assemblage there was the sense of unity. An instance was provided by the speech of Mr. Alex. Taylor, of the Railways Union. He spoke well and forcibly. Opening slowly, he warmed to his task, and soon the words were pouring out. The stream flowed strong and long. At last the chair man tapped on the water-bottle as a hint that time was up. But the speaker was engrossed in his theme and did not heed. Then somebody on the platform trundled a little pebble out, but Mr. Taylor, pacing up and down, crushed it b...

Friday Night Incident Swan street — Men Arrested on Charge of Uttering Forged Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
Friday Night Inrcident In Swan Street -Men Arrested on Charge of Utter Ing Forged Notes. Richmond has at various times num bered amongst its police constables many smart men, and it is evident. that the standard of efficiency is being well maintained. Constable J. Martin and F. Barnes are proof of this state ment. They were on duty in Swan street last Friday night when a com plaint was made that a shopkeeper had been victimised by means of a bogus Commonwealth note. The con stables took descriptions of the sup posed culprit and set out to scrutinise the passing crowds in the street. They felt justified in questioning two men who they had not previously seen in Richmond. The replies given by the men were not to the satisfaction of the constables, and- they were placed under arrest. They will appear at the police court on Monday on a charge of having uttered forged notes.

FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By 'Turn-on-the-Light." Many are Trained, But Few are Chosen. There is quite a rush of juniors for a try-out with the R.F.C. No Alick Easons amongst them, but three or four are showing good football and will strengthen the side. Last Saturday's game against the combined Richmond District proved a useful pipe-opener. The juniors began at a great pace and kept their heads in front during the first quarter. System and condi tion then told the old old story, and the seniors ran out easy winners. Final:- Richmond, 15-11. Juniors, 6-12. The combined team. included four very ancient "juniors" in Billy Schmidt and James, of St. Kilda, and McKenzie and Conquest, of Mel bourne. They also had the assistance of Roy Taylor, Richmond's follower, as captain. Keggin marked and kicked in quite his old form, and should strengthen the team this season. Bernie Herbert was another of the big mren to show good form. Hall, Cronk, Maybury, Alessio and Richardson have all struck form early ...

Sergt. Copeland's Night ANOTHER ROWDY MEETING. OLD LABOR MAN LASHES OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 5 May 1917
Sergt. Copeland's Night ANOTHER ROWDY MEETING. OLD LABOR MAN LASHES OUT. Long before eight o'clock on Mon day night there was a crowd in Bridge-road large enough to fill two Richmond town halls. The hall, as a fact, was only half-filled, but the doors were closed. Admission was by ticket. Sergeant Copeland, the Nationalist candidate for Yarra, had been deliberately hindered, disturbed and heckled at previous meetings, and his committee took this course as a means of ensuring that those who desired to hear his views should be allowed to do so. Nobody who was present at the preliminary meetings of Sergeant Copeland, called for &nbsp; friends and supporters only, can deny, however regretfully, that the precaution was necessary. It was, however, evident very early that a few of the loud-mouthed, unruly sec tion that had previously interrupted Sergeant Copeland had again con trived to gain admission. There was a warm round of applause for the sol dier candidate as, preceded by Ma...
Luckless Leiston's Ordeal [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
Luckless Leiston's Ordeal By Phyllis Martin. "If you please, sir-an urgent call from the Court. It's Miss Irene- thrown from her horse. Miss Agnes, er. aiint, is away, and old Parsons, who 'phoned, seems half-crazy with fiight!." .i .Dr. Maurice Leistou rose hurriedly frbm his solitary lunch, shooting out an few rapid questions as he made for the' Srgery. Two minutes later a motor cycle was chug-chugging valiantly un thet steep hill upon whose brow Atherley Court was situated. Maurice Leiston's longing to re visit the old house, where, in his uncle Henry's time, had been spent the only really happy days he had ever known was being gratified with startling suddenness. It was over a fortnight since he came to Atherley Bridge to act as deputy for Dr. Storne, yet no body in the district had remembered him save Miss Agnes, the austere aunt to whose guardianship the young mistress of the. Court had. been left, and the spinster's attitude at their chance encounter had been so frigid that t...

LANCASHIRE GIRL'S ROMANCE. One of the most talked of women in America at the present moment is Miss Cecilia Manuela Wright, who, de sirous of establishing an aviatorial record for altitude among women, re cently rose to 5,100 feet and was in the air for fifty-two minutes. She is recognised as one of the most beau tiful women on the American stage. Miss Cecilia Wright is a Blackpool girl. Her rapid rise to fame on the vaudeville stage dates from 1912, when she was visiting friends in Hav ana, Cuba. A memorial service for the sailors who had lost their lives on the, battleship Maine was being held, and she volunteered to sing. Her beauty and rich voice at once attract ed attention, and after the service she was publicly thanked by representa tives of both the Cuban and American Governments. Later, when motoring near a village in Cuba, her car col lided with a cart, a shaft of which broke her leg, and the horse attached to the cart fell on her chest, injuring her internally. Captain C....
