FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Strike-a-Light." "Dip! "Dip! Dip!" There was plenty of diii on Satur day. And Richmond got the biggest dip ping of all. Not only dipped, but drubbed and soundly drubbed at that. And all because they did'nt dip to gether, altogether, dip, boys, dip. It is just as well for the sake of the turnstile receipts and the cricket club -who need the money-that there is not another big boat-race to-day. There was a fair crowd at Collingwood there would be a smaller one at Rich mond this afternoon. In every way the 'Wood match was a regular boat-race game-only one side in it, and that side didn't run in Tiger skins. 'Wood had the full strength of last season's homebank flutterers avail aDle, but Richmond supporters didn't count that as such a big advantage as it proved. It was reckoned that the local fledg lings would put up a game fight, but the hard-billed MIaggies had been too many times over the old track and they pecked the eys. out of the lithe and youthful yellow-bir...

Spectators on the far ther side of the oval even asked: t 'Who is that forward hussy with all he boys around her?" and there is also a story of a "drunk" who leaned over the fence and whispered sweet f lothings into "her" ear, to the delight of the boys. The strain became too great for the maintenance of a de mure and coy bearing, and the drunk wandered away a disillusioned man when the charmer suddenly broke into a guffaw of boyish laug...

St. Stephen's Harriers. A successful run was held at Bur- I wood on Saturday, when fourteen members 'donned togs." G. Langford and G. Clarkson laid a trail of about four miles in the vicinity of Ashbur ton, Burwood township and Rivers dale Golf Links, the country crossed being in fine condition for running. R. Badenach was pace, with H. A. Webb in charge at the rear, and he set a good steady gait throughout the journey. The ardor of the juniors was put to a severe test, for as the pack was crossing from Burwood to the golf-links against a north-westerly gale, a heavy shower of rain and sleet was encountered. All, however, came through the ordeal smiling, but cold, and joined in the run home of 1000 yards -(with the wind) with more energy than usual. In a splendid race. T. Elkington, taking part in his first cross-country run, finished strongly, and just beat the club vet eran, H. Webb, with E. Gilbert third and K. Taylor fourth. A peculiar fea ture of the outing was the fact that on...

OPEN COLUMN. THE SUTCH APPEAL CASE. (To the Editor.) Sir,-The Mayor's appeal which ap peared in your last issue came as a great surprise to Mrs. Sutch and my self. We were very reluctant in the first place to have the proposed bene fit; and had no idea that our circum stances would be disclosed in the public press. We utterly refuse to participate in any funds which may be raised by this means, and while thank ing the Mayor and the other gentle men concerned, including yourself, we wish to be allowed to struggle along in the future as we have been doing in the past. Yours etc., JOHN SUTCH. 117 Dover-street, South Richmond.

Tram Employe for Each Passenger Makes Business Man Smile—Joke of the Losing Loop at Hawthorn. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Tram Employe for Each Passenger Makes Business Man Smile-Joke of the Losing Loop at Hawthorn. "A new hat you have never seen anything so funny as this." Mr. Ar thur Head, proprietor of the Bridge road firm of Head and Co., slapped the writer heartily and burst into a chuckle as he handed up two pennies to the conductor. Mr. Head lives somewhere over the other side of the Yarra, where the Old-Man-of-the-Sea electric tram con tinues to pull down the profits of the Hawthorn Tram Trust as it races to and from Swan-street bridge to Bridge road bridge. "Funny," returned the writer. "I do not see anything funny-you have got me." "You weren't cut out for a reporter, my boy," replied Mr. Head. "Why, this is the funniest old thing that has ever happened and the funniest part I of it all is that there are so many chaps like you who cannot see the joke." "Joke-what joke?" I asked in my innocence. "Why, you and I are the only pas sengers on this tram," went on the draper man, "and there's one jo...

He DIDN'T KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
He DIDN'T KNOW. "Not a worldling, but a human be ing," may represent the verdict on the late Archbishop Carr by pressmen who from time to time interviewed the courteous old prelate. One of his own flock, now stolidly denouncing Labor in the Melbourne "Argus," has a yarn of his talk with the Archbishop on Cup night. "And have ye been very busy to-I day?" asked Dr. Carr when his views. on the Ultra-montane movement had been noted. "More occupied than busy,"' the: re porter answered; -."I. have .been :on' emergency duty at.:the Cup.". : "Horse-racing," said :the .Arch bishop. "Well, well, 'tis a subject I know nothing at all about. And what won the Cup now?" "Posiedon," the- reporter said. The Archbishop nodded his head gravely. "The Derby winner,"' hesaid. "And tell me, did he start at three to wan or four to wan?"-Sydney "Sun." "Some chaps who had been hit were cheering the others on," tells a man of Anzac. "I saw one fellow only a boy-lying out on the hill. The blood was running dow...
Extension of Bridge Road Picture Framing Business. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Extension of Bridge RFoad Picture Framing Business. Since opening his premises in Bridge-road 12 years ago, Mr. W. Allen, picture-frame manufacturer and crockery merchant, has made rapid strides in the business. Mr. Allen until four years ago devoted his at tention to the picture-framing busi ness solely. Then he purchased the large stock of crockery, glassware, electro-plated goods, etc., from Miss Evans, who was giving up business, and has since added greatly to this department. Increased trade has en abled him to acquire the whole of the premises at the corner of Lennox street and Bridge-road. including those previously occupied by the Richmond Importing Co. Although there is a great shortage in fancy goods, this year, Mr. Allen has been successful in securing large consignments for future delivery, and is making elabor ate alterations at his new premises. An announcement appears in our ad vertising columns.
MORE ENCOURAGEMENT THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
MORE ENCOURAGEMENT THERE. It was out at one of the military training grounds somewhere in Aus tralia, and at a distance-safe from the officer commanding-a bunch of civilian visitors were interested spec tators. Suddenly and unexpectedly a volley was fired, and with a little shriek a very nice girl belonging to one party jumped back and threw her plump little form right into the arms of a youth standing on slightly lower ground. "Oh," she cried in her con fusion, "I'm so sorry; the rifles fright ened me." "That's all right," mur mured the man, relinquishing his grasp reluctantly, "come over where the artillery are practising." Loving his brave fellow-Australians with an admiration that is passion, Roy Bridges, a young "Age" writer, in his latest .book; "The Immortal Dawn," unfolds a long scroll of golden words, of which, unfortunately, only a few can be quoted here: "Adventurous all-and one shall tell the finer from the cruder ore, when all is smelted into the one pre cious Metal.

Charles Chaplin, Wandering Musician, Will Make Merry at Globe-William S. Hart, Constance Talmadge and Australian Bushranging Serial Are Other Attractions. Romeo and Juliet (the big Fox super-feature), Sparrows (5000 feet), and A Woman's Way is the star bill to be submitted for the last times at the Globe this afternoon and even ing. Constance Talmadge stood out alone in Intolerance. Amongst the big group of stars in the Griffiths master piece her work as the Mountain Girl was so fresh and vivid that it imme diately won recognition. The Girl of the Timber Claims is her first starring film, and she fulfils the excellent ex pectations aroused by her acting in Intolerance. It is a 5000 feet Triangle drama, and will head a fine bill at the Globe on Monday. Charles Chaplin's latest hit, The Vagabond, will go on on Thursday. Charlie has unlimited scope as the wandering violinist wooing Edna Pur viance, who makes a charming gipsy girl. There are lots of humor that only Chaplin knows how to ...
"Inverloching" [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
"Inverloching" By R.F.S. To reach the district of Inverloch it is necessary to take the Great Southern express for Port Albert and branch off at Nyora, on the- e6stern' side of the head of Westernporf., .Kilcunda . station". stands within twenty feet of. the- .Southern Ocean, just above the beach of a lovely bay. On stormy days the spray flies clear over the station. I suppose the rail way people, when they-put it there, hoped for the best. The view from Anderson towards the mouth of West-: ernport is of surpassing beauty. French Island sleeps peacefully on the calm waters of the Bay. Phillip Island stands guard across the mouth; and meets the force of the Southern Ocean. Cape Woolamai. rears its shaggy head, grim and precipitous, .at the eastern end-of the island. It is the most striking headland in. many miles of rugged coastline. The line at that spot reminded me of a little railway that years ago ran from Glen elg (S.A.) to Brighton, along the sand Hill forming the shore of St. ...
Progress in Aviation ONE FACTORY MAKES TWELVE AEROPLANES A DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Progress in Aviation ONE .FACTORY MAKES TWELVE S.AEROPLANES A DAY. Mr. Santos'Dumont writes as fol lows in "Flying": * "On the 14th of July, 1903, the au thor piloted a dirigible at the Long champs military: manoeuvres in which 100,000 troops took part. That was the first time aerial' navigation was a feature of a military demonstra tion. At that time it was predicted that aerial warfare would be one of the 'most important phases of future military campaigns. The prediction was scoffed at and resented by mili tarists who could not see the airships in any light but as a childish toy. The present war, however, has demon strated that aeronautics has revolu tionised warfare; aircraft are now emplbyed in every branch of military service. Less than a decade ago the author's aeroplane was considered a marvel. In this machine, in which there was place for only one person, a. motor of about twenty horse-power was used. At first, flights of only a few metres could be made-. Only enough gasoli...
From Various Sources A FLEMINGTON SPASM. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
From Various Sources A FLEMINGTON SPASM. One of the Hers: "Hullo, Dick, you are not looking well!" The Him: 'By Jove, but I am! In fact I was never looking better in my life. I'm searching for a bookie that owes me a fiver!"-The "Bulletin." Here is a true story of Annette Kel lermann. It refers to an occasion when a Melbourne pressman some years ago had a "close up" view of the beautiful Annette. She was do ing a ten-miles swim down the Yarra, and the reporter was awaiting her ar rival at Princes Bridge. At last she arrived and clambered ashore pant ing, to be taken by a number of lady friends to the dressing sheds of the Yarra Rowing Club-borrowed for the occasion. The reporter pressed his way through the gathering to the door of the room, and made known his identity to the lady standing there. Calling-"Annette, the reporter of the - is here to interview you," the lady threw open the door--at the pre cise moment that the heroine of the day was stepping from her bath. Hokus: That fe...
