Memories of earlier, perhaps brighter days, will be recalled to old Richmond citizens by reading in Mayor Fear's just published report the long list of chief magistrates who have presided over this district in the days that have passed before and since Richmond aspired to and was created a borough. Names of many splendid citizens are shown on this interesting civic role of honor, and In many cases they were citizens who not only achieved notable local esteem and promise, but they display ed ability and gained distinction and respect in the larger life of Mel bourne and throughout the commun ity of the young but fast-expanding colony. It was in 1855 that Richmond was created a municipality, and Mr. Henry Miller, known to his genera tion as "Money" Miller, was appoint ed the first chairman. Mr. Miller at that time resided in a house on land near where Head and Co.'s dra pe...

A Bad. Case. Some time ago a number. of Lanca shire butchers gathered at.a friend's house at- the .close of a, long day spent in somewhat exciting amuse ment.' They were a thirsty company, and the -friend having no beverages to offer-.them, it became necessary to consider how the landlord of a neighboring inn might be induced to supply liquor half-an-hour after clos ing time. They wvere accidentally assisted. in their deliberations by the chance re mark :of one of their number: "Oh, I say, lads, I'm dying for a drink." A pair. of them. set' off to the tav ern and,. after much. thumping- at the door, they had the -satisfaction of hearing. a window .open and seeing the landlord's head thrust out. "What's up?" inquired Boniface. "Come thy way downstairs," was the reply. "Our' 'Blls dying." - ' In:an few minutes .'the .door was .opned;-, -and. the:I olowing. modest' or. delr- av.as: presented' on: behalf of- the sick -.man a:- quart: -of. brandy, "half :a and on. gallon- of-.porter. .

Elsie Vaughan's Awakening S-THE STORY OF A.SCAR. Elsie.. Vaughan, in a corner of the compartnient, kept her eyes fixed up on her newspaper; but she was well aware that the other passengers were regarding her. They stared furtively in her direc tion; their gaze seemed to be at tracted to her disfigured face in spite of themselves. After nearly two years the girl was more or less accustomed to this .curious scrutiny. She knew that they were wondering how she had come by the ugly scar which ex tended almost from eye to cuin. The train stopped at a station; re started. At the last moment a smart ly-dressed,.. middle-aged woman pulled open the door. A porter shouted warningly. "Thanks-thanks very much in deed! I'd have fallen out again, my dear, if it hadn't been for you." Elsie Vaughan, with a murmured acknowledgment, sat back in her seat and returned to her paper. . Presently, however, they were left together. -The other occupants had alighted. "May I talk to you?" her compan ion ventu...

There are some of us who believe you cannot get enough of the briny and its blow, blow, blow. The Sunday afternoon trip is to some good Richmond cititens a fixture that it would take something out of the ordinary to ..postpone., -Ask Mr. T. iO'Shannessy, of the Vine Hotel? But to too many other citizens a bay trip is something out of the common. So on Monday night, with cethe full strength of one of. the best bands in Australia aboard, bringing to memory again the best of the old tun!,s of yester-year, with'the latest bits of the pantomime to get; everybody awhistl ing and -a-humming, ,it was no wonder everyone was inspirited and made. happy.

Some of them have openly boasted that they would spare no effort to encompass his down fall. The hotelkeepers can, very natural'y, be expected to be opposed to Mr. Cotter's action, and are per fectly. entitled to use a...

TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Purely Personal. Kites are in-look at the telegraph wires. Richmond's Parliamentary represen tatives are an enigma if not a conun drum. Frank Gwynne Tudor, M..H.R., has never touched intoxicants in his life, but he was present at the Liquor Trades picnic. 'Gor-Save" Webber is also a "T.T." but he voted to keep the pubs open and, of course, was at the picnic. Ted Cotter, who will enjoy a drink with either a lord or a laborer, reckoned the pubs should be shut at six-end the liquor trade would now like to see him on the sorap-lhep. Webber is member for Abbotsford in Victorian Legislative Assembly, but at last A.N.A. meeting he seconded a motion in favor of wiping out the State Parliament. Of course, we be lieve him!

Wirths bad no room for Annette just then. She and..pa and ma left Melbourne, went to A...

The Last Will. A LOVE-STORY WITH COMPLICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
The Last Will. A LOVE-STORY WITH COMPLICATIONS. By Herbert Flowerdew. When old Roger Mlaulever, after due consideration of a letter he had received by the morning post, an nounced to Irene, his adopted daugh ter, that he proposed asking the son of a very old friend of his down to the hall for a few days, Irene tried very hard to show no undue exulta tion at his decision, and succeeded very well for a girl who was by no means accustomed 'to deceit. And she listened with a well-acted air of receiving news wuen he told her, re ferring to the letter, that George Er dan had come over from Canada to fight for the old country, had lost an arm in her cause, and was now in England completing his convales cence. Mlaulever added, in a mood of un usual confidence, stimulated by the young man's straightforward and en gaging letter, that George Erdan's mother was the only woman he had ever wished to marry, and that the friendship of years had been broken when she preferred Geoffrey Erdan to himse...

FAMOUS ANIMAL CEMETERIES. Costly Tombstones for Defunct Pets. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
FAMOUS ANIMAL CEMETERIES. Costly Tombstones for Defunct -Pets. The largest and best-appointed ani mal cemetery in the world is undoubt edly that which still remains attached tosthe ruined Summer Palace in Pekin. Here repose, in coffins of polished orris wood elaborately carved, more than a thousand- dogs, the defunct pets of :former Emperors of China. 'The "tombstones" are of marble, but a certain number are of agate, lapis lazuli, and ebony inlaid with silver. At the sacking of the Palace by the allied European troops in 1900, con siderable loot was obtained from this unique burial place. Everybody has heard of the "Dogs' Cemetery," situated behind the keep er's cottage at Victoria Gate, Hyde Park. Here are interred some two hun dred dogs and about a dozen cats. Each grave is between two or three feet in depth, and some contain as many as three dogs, each in its separate little coffin. The pets of all classes of so ciety are represented.

"MOocow " Farm BEAN'S STORY OF OUR MEN. - "LET'S TAKE THE BLANKY . PLACE." In picking up the. intimate details of the fighting after the .units are .out of the line, one comes across certain narratives which deserve to be told at once even though the events them selves occurred some weeks ago. One of these is the story of the first deliberate attack on- Moquet Farm. - One says deliberate because the Tasmanians ii. the .previous week had explored the: farm in an attack which was not intended to go so far. The first deliberate;: attack on the neighborhood of: it was made by the Victorians: ..... The attack was timed before five in the morning, while it was still dark. Part of a Victorian brigade, not the very .oldest of our troops, but Galli poli battalions for all that, was in the line at that period and carried out the attack. There were -three known difficul ties. One was Mouquet Farm on the right. The second was a strong, point or redoubt on the left. The third was a strong point~...
Frogs and Snails FRESH DIET POSSIBILITIES. THE LOCAL SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
. Frogs and Snails FRESH DIET POSSIBILITIES. THE LOCAL SUPPLY. To be troubled about what we eat is apt to be looked upon as one of the little weaknesses of human na ture. The stolid Britisher has from time immemorial stoked up heartily on the beeves and fatlings that spur red his ancestors to doughty deeds of prowess. He has been rather con temptuous of the dietary of his more imaginative French neighbor, hut it is not: possible that the more variable and artistic French tempera ment is due to. the greater and more delicate .variety of food: - M. Aucher,. who was .moved to re mark, when M. Chavet,- in the course of a lecture, said Australians ignored the edible properties of yabbies, that he had eaten them with much relish, and knew of more Australians who were equally conversant of their good qualities. . M. Aucher, - however, agreed that on the whole we showed want of imagination with regard to our food, and neglected many oppor tunities. He instanced our neglect of the frog as an...
