Week=Ending with Rockiellow MILLIONAIRE iS PERFECT :HOST. 'SUPPER IN SUMMERHOUSE AND '' BEDS ON VERANDAH-. : Rockfellow's, week-end "cottae was the ta.lk of the place, and when I re ceived an invitation to spendi the usual vacation there, I: was uliusually pleased. To begin with, Rockfellow is an ideal host and the fame of- his week-end dwelling had -aroused my curiosity. We arrived there in a motor-launch, quite a crowd of us, half of :w~hom were ladies. At fir st sight the place seemed strangely small for the con siderable company he had brought with him; and when I discovered that there were practically only five rooms in it, and every one of them was an elegant reception room,- I con cluded that Rockfellow accommodat ed his guests in tents, or completely spoiled what would be'a charming holidav, by forcing his guests to s!eep on that most horrible -of all modern inventions, the "shake-down." The verandahs were wide and deep, and, moreover, were fitted with Vene tion- blinds,. -w...

Sarcastic Jehu. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
Sarcastic Jehu. The man was going, on a holiday, and at a busy London station the cab man had assisted his fare to carry paclkages to the departure plat form, for which he received.twopence over and above the bare fare. He waited until the "twopenny tip per" had ensconced himself in a corner of the comfortably-filled cornm partment, then, hat in hand, ap croached the carriage. Holding out the copperis, he said, with biting sar; casm: "it's very .kind of you,. Mr. Car negie, and all.of us cabmen are very grateful; but we don't need no librar ies just now, so I've brought you the money . back." The mean man winced, brt :d no reply. "Oh, very- well, MIr. Carnegie," ob served thie sieek and ruddy Jehu, "seein'.as..'ow you're so set on chuck in' y'er .vealth about, I'll- keep it. I'11 build -no free libraries with it, but in ease such. generosity is ketchin', .I'll lay it out in brimstone and fumigate the cab." . :.._

Terse. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
Terse. "Left wheel!"- bellowed the drill sergeant in a voice which stubbed sltoi:es up from the barrack-yard. Ti'he order was too much for Private Boggins. He tried se;veral movements and eventually resigned himself to failure. "Speakin' from observation," re marked the .ergeant, with a deadly cali', "I should say you wern't often top boy o' the class in your school days , Number Seventeen. Now try aga:n. Left wheel!" Caice more Boggins registered a failure. "i 'raps you can recollect enough to tell me what you were before you got a nice new suit for nothing?" ob ser ed the Sergeant. "'Wheelright," replied Boggins. "You don't now," smiled the ser geant. At a mechanical transport camp in france the men presented a panto mir.;e. "The Babes in the Wood." If they had called the show "The Infan try inthe mud,'" who could have blamed them?
FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES . By 'Turn-on-the-Light." No "Gee-Rich" This Season. The Yellow and Black team to meet Colllngwood at Victoria Park to-day are all pure merinos, and, judging by their form in the practice games, should make Dicky Lee and Co. go all they know. Ted Keggln has been kicking well at practice, and, as he can take a turn in the ruck, he should more than make up for the loss of Martini. To replace Alick Eason is another matter, but the team have still two good rovers in Clarrie Hall and young Alessio. Sid Reeves, who is showing all his old-time dash, will take "Son" Thomas' place on the half-back line. Moffatt will be unable to play, but Rudd, another golden-haired follower, will take his place in the change ruck. Arthur Bettles, playing for the jun iors last Saturday, was in his element in the rough and tumble, all-on-the ball game. Another star turn was Bernie Hier bert's place-kicking for goal; it ar rested the attention of the crowd and was the source of-much amusement....

Forced to Fight THE TALE OF A SCHLESWIG DANE. HOW THE "CANNON FODDER" FARED AT LIEGE . "Forced to Fight," by Erich Erick sen, is a recent publication by Heine mann.

The following is the author's de scription of the personal appearance of the soldier-the son of a Danish farmer-immediately before the war, and his appearance on his return home after being wounded: "I saw him in July, in the first year of the war. He was then a happy and light-hearted young man of twenty-four, straight and strong, heavy in limb and firm in step. He had that confidence and calm in all his movements which is common to those who own the ground they walk on .... This summer he was sitting one day in my room. His right coat sleeve hung empty, and was tucked into his pocket. His body was limp and shrunken, his chest fiat, his shoulders bent HIis hair was white at the temples, his skin sallow and shr...

Branch Line from Swan Street Along Church Street is Latest Tramway Talk—Hawthorn Trust to be Approached. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
Branch Line from Swan Street Along Church Street is Latest Tramway Talk-Hawthorn Trust to be Ap proached. As the Collingwood and Prahran Councils do not consider in a favor able light the proposal for a Church street tram, another scheme is now afoot. It was decided at the Rich mond Council meeting on Monday night to ask the Hawthorn Tramway Trust if they would be prepared to es tablish a branch line along Church street from Victoria-street to the Prahran bridge, and if so, on what terms and conditions. Efforts of the Railway Department to recapture traffic from the Swan street trams by putting on additional trains are not affecting tramway busi ness. Receipts per car mile for the past month were 16.85d. per car mile, and on a single day £250 was taken, which is something of a record.

TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. i Cheers And Jeers For the Lewis-Scobie combination Have not been an infrequent occur rence in Adelaide. Once upon a time, not so many winters ago, the crowd was very !h eatening towards Robert after a uramingly inexplicable reve;rsal, but the little chap showed them some masterly riding after that and he went up the one step that leads from toleration to forgiveness. Jockey Sing wouldn't sing out after his Leger ride on Dependence, when Lewis on Stageland was alleged to have given him a far-away passage, but a section of the crowd did plenty of singing out for him. But the stipes. took it all in silence, and Bob by swallowed it like most of us used to swallow castor oil. Not because we wanted it, but because we were forced into it. As in most things that come under mundane notice, all the blame was not, apparently, on the one who had to shoulder it, and the stipeu. prob ably did the proper thing in passing on. But not even the chee.s that greeted his Green Cap win in...

St. Stephen's Harriers Hold Run at Ashburton-Novices Become Enthusiasts. Seventeen members visited Gar. diner on Saturday last and found the country in good order for running. Two packs were formed, the slows, in charge of H. Webb, with E. Gilbert as whip, laying a trail of about four miles over splendid running country in the vicinity of Ashburton and Bur wood railway stations. When 500 yards from home the pack broke away, the first arrivals being G. E. Langford, J. Inglis and H. Webb. The fast pack, with R. Holt in the van, lost the trail on one occasion and fail ed to catch the slows. In the run home of 500 yards A. Ingram, a Haw thorn visitor, finished ahead of G. Baker and F. W. Page. Three juniors who made their first appearance at a cross-country run and showed good form, announced their intention of becoming members. The rain of Saturday morning had the effect of keeping prospective mem bers away from the outing. For their information, the committee point out that all events...
At the Jeweller's. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
At the Jeweller's. A young couple, evidently .from the country, were walking .down Collins-street the other day apparent ly looking for something very much in particular. At last they stopped at a large jeweller's window in which were displayed a number of wedding rings. They stood by the window a few moments discussing some urgent question, the big, clumsy-looking fel low, who measured about six feet, ap parently hesitating. - "Go on, George," said the girl, who' scarcely reached his elbows; "what's:: tl-e use of backing out now you've gone so far?" "I don't half like to, Mary," -he re plied; "that sleek-looking fellow in there is sure to grin at me, and say I ought to be in the army." "What difference does it make whether he laughs or cries!" exclaim ed the girl. "If you haven't the pluck' I'll go myself." "That's it, Mary," was the re sponse; "if you'll do the asking, I'll1 come with you and look on." Followed by her bashful lover, the little woman marched boldly in and chose the...
