WHAT THE BISHOP KNEW. On one occasion when travelling along the west coast of Africa with, an old skipper who had know'n 'many missionaries but "did not see^ the use of Uiem/j' a well-known bishop was obliged .to endure a string of, taunting questions, such as "What is the length of an alligators ton gue ?" " What do missionaries know, anywuy ?" At last the bishop could stand It no longer. Turning to the skipper, he said : "I know you ure an expert. Can you tell me the length; of an alliga tor's tongue?" "Certainly," was the reply, "but is depends on the length of the alliga tor." "Very well, then, say an alligator fifteen feet long. What would b» the length of its tongue ?" "Three feet," was the answer. But the bishop, who had kept al ligators " and watched their u'aya^, knew better. "It is evident that you are an authority on the west 'const of Africa," he" said ; "but it, ? is also evident that some people, see more in ten minutes than others . in .twenty years.

FOOT B A L L 1 RICHMOND, 9-14; ST. KILDA, 9-12. TWO POINTS VICTORY. RRILLIANT WIN FOR THE LOCALS. " .. EXCITING GAME. * J The Richmond Cricket Ground has never' presented such an animated scene as it did on Saturday^ last, when the fine new stand and" reserve were crowded and the outer ground well filled with an enthu siastic gathering numbering 17,000 spectators. i ? The scene at Swan-street station after the conclusion of the game was something like that at Spencer street station on a Melbourne Cup morning; in fact, the accommo dation at the station was for a time unequal to the strain made upon it. St. Kilda enthusiasts attended in strong force, many of them being confident that their men would even improve upon their perfor mance of April 25th. when they defeated Richmond by 8-16 to 5-12. The knowing .one's, however, cognisant .of Richmond's, improved forfh, a6 ' Bh'o^n ' unmistakably to* the match on previous Saturday against Carlton, anticipated a very close game. i Richmond s...

THE PERFECT WOMAN. HOW THE "FORM DIVINE" MAY BE DEVELOPED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 27 June 1914

THE PERFECT WOMAN. HOW THE " FORM DIVHfE " HAY BE DEVELOPED.. (By; MISS ANNETTE KELLER MANN). Generally, the trouble ' ia that peo ple give "perfection" too narrow a meaning,. It is not merely a mat ter of form or .feature. For instance a woman may have a figure in exact accord with the model measure ments of female beauty, and have no vitality. To me, it seems that health and personality are what a woman should aim at first v/hen seeking perfection. Perfect proportion can be developed and the earlier in life that a girl starts to practice the necessary physical culture and athletic exer cises the better. When a child has any physical defect-say it is bandy legged, pigeon-toed, or anything similar-most parents accept it as a matter of course ; they may try to cover up the defect, but they rare ly try, to alter it. THE BEST OP ALL EXERCISES. Nearly all defects can be cured by judicious and regular exercise. There are no exercises like swim ming, dancing, and fencing for de veloping" ...

MARCONI'S FIRST MESSAGE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 27 June 1914

MARCONI'S FIRST MESSAGE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC. Says Marconi to"' a newspaper" re porter "I landed quietly on De cember 9th, 1901, at St. John's, in Newfoundland, with my two as sistants, Mr. Kemp and Mr. Paget, and set my instruments in a low room in the old barracks ol Sig nall Hall, which stands about half a mile from the town of St. John's. Nobody knew of my plans and ar rival, for I intended to make the experiment without any great at tention. I was not sceptical about the possibility of the feat, but I was afraid that some technical im perfection might ruin the whole ex periment. Before leaving England I had instructed my assistants to send me a certain signal at a fixed time each day. This signal was to be sent out from Poldhu,L Corn wall, the most south-western end of England. The question was'! Could I receive on my kite-wire in New foundland some of the electric waves produced in England ? It was a distance of two thousand miles. I had cabled my assistants across the water to...
