Cause and Effect. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Cause and. Effect. When you see a woman struggling At a counter, out of breath, With a lot of parcels juggling, In a scrummage to the death; With her hat and hair all flying, With her face all flushed--or pale. You may bet she has been buying Bargains at a Winter Sale! When good manners she's forgetting. When she treads on people's heels, Elbowing her way, and letting Off hysterical small squeals; When" she purchases m?ysterious :Articles unknown to-r males, You will kiow she's had a.serious Field.day at the Winter Sales! When she's rathler. short with father, •.When she's sorrowful and glum,:.. You may wager she's been rather Near a large emporium Near a counter where there's pushing Like fierce mountain goats from . -Wal~es: She's beehn in a't.*iljjtje crushing Shindy of the Winter Sales!
Troubles in the North. EAGLEHAWKS, BLOWFLIES AND DINGOES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Troubles in the.- North. . . .. ;'" -... .. - . . , . EAGLEHAWKS, BLOWFLIES AND S : DINGOES. The lot of. the pastoralist way back of Winton, Queensland, has not been a, happy' one of late. Mr. R. B. Clay ton, of Blandensburg, informs us (the Winton "Herald") that in one lamb ing paddock on that holding in March no less than 90 eaglehawkS were pois oned, clusters of them being found dead around the poisoned carcases of lamb. Troubles never come singly they say, and this seems the lot of the average squatter of late years. Al though comparatively free from the blciv-fiy pest so far, the dingoes ar, a source of annoyance, and Mr. Clay ton thinks the grass seed is going to be very troublesome this year. The rainfall and floods there since the' be ginning of the "wet season," dating back to the latter months of 1916, have been abnormal. Mr. G. S. Doug las, of Knapdale, was in town this weet (the Winton paper records). The shearing which had just beenr comp!eted there was carried out some...
A Word to Fritz. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
A Word to Fritz. By James Douglas. I hope readers will forgive me for talking over their heads at or to HIuns. Gather round, my dear Major Mioraht, Maximilian Harden, Captain Persius, Count Reventiow,. Hinden burg, Ludendorff, Makensen and Beth mann-Hollweg. There is room for you all. What? 3May Wilhelm come, too? Certainly. And Wilhelmette? Dy all means. And Bernstorff? Why, of course, if U do not blow him to h-ahem-heaven by mistake. They are all welcome. First of all, let me rub in the new money. Be honest, for once, and ad mit that it staggers you. Several hun dred millions without bothering the banks! Bless what you call your heart, we surprised durselves. Some of our optimists went so far as to hope for four or five. Bonar Lawv was laughed at when he outtwisted Oliver Twist by asking for more. But John Bull is a wonderful old fogey. I-fe goes about imitating senility and impersonating decrepitude. He de ceives his best friends by his simu lated debility. He gives himself about...

Two=Up Schools PAST AND PRESENT. HOW FORTUNES WERE WON. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Two=Up Schools PAST AND PRESENT. SHOW FORTUNES WERE WON. It may be said at once that no-one has made a fortune betting in .a two up school. But on a conservative es timate a family who ran a school not a mile from the General Post Office cleared £60,000. This was done in the days that are dead. In some of-the two-up schools the bettors have made big money. The troops at the front play two-up, but the schools are not big ones-that is to say, a spin for £100 is a rare occur rence. The reason is that in France the Australasians - the best-paid troops in the world-have opportuni ties of spending their money in other directions. But in South Africa dur ing the Boer War the Australasians had little opportunity of spending. When it did arise it went in extrava gant fashion. For instance, the .writer s.aw a soldier in Rustenburg give a half-a-crown for a rain-stained cigar ette. He has seen, too, a half-sove reign given for a tin of condensed milk. This was only because the supply did not e...

German Papers Here. SCUTH AUSTRALIA'S DESPISED DISTINCTION. ADELAIDE AND TANUNDA PUBLICATIONS. THEIR IMMEDIATE SUPPRESSION ADVOCATED. TJ (;German papers dishonor Southi Australia by their regular pub !!icifun ;,t the present time. That portiom of the Commonwealth is nf.!P for its beautiful scenery; its rich :-tricultural areas, its marvel loi~-!y !uscious fruit, and its copper, but th- fact that printed matter ap. pe:- in the Teutonic tongue is the S matc most despised distinction, and is a ?,?ot serious reflection on a com ?unit:. professing allegiance to Brit i h irrinciplcs. This is the only part of tui:. lmpire where such a thing is permitted--after two and three-quar ter y:,ard' war with Germany. Pos ptublications are avowedly of a religious character. One is issued in \dioaide and tihe other in Tanun-. da. The former is "Der Australische Clh'ri?.:lote," the organ of the Gen eral Syntod, and the latter is "Die Ki(ichen und Missions Zeitung," print ied in the interests of the Lu...

The Eavesdropper. "Delighted, Lieutenant Hampden," murmured Mrs.. Cramer, extending her hand. "So good of you to call. Yes, thank you, I am quite well. Late hours seem to have no affect upon me whatever; indeed, I think I can stand them better than some of you younger people. Phyllis, for in stance, had to leave quite early last night, suddenly prostrated by a vio lent headache." Hector smiled politely as he turned to Phyllis, who was standing very erect, regarding him with strange in tentness. He had not retired until day was breaking and had slept but little, but save that he was just a trifle haggard and his eyes were less bright than usual, he showed no sign of the strain he had endured. Duty had called him to the Admiralty in the morning, but immediately after lunch he had driven to Lanca...

Assistance Rendered. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Assistance Rendered. Sam did not turn up at school until the afternoon. When, however, he did arrive he entered with none of the usual signs of guilt; rather did he wear an expression of one who had achieved something great. "Now, Sammy Johnson, what ex cuse have you for being absent this morning?" demanded the teacher. "I was helping the police!" said Sam, while a gasp of envy went round the school. "Now, be careful, Sam. Tell the truth!" "Well, so I was helping the police," said Sam, proudly. "Just as I was coming to school this morning I was crossing the High-street when up comes a policeman, and he says, 'Now, my little man, mind that steam-roller,' he says. So I minded it, sir, until the engineer came back."

In the bar of the only hotel he en tered into conversation with its only occupant, a railway porter. "Anything going on here just now," .he asked; "picture palace, lecture, political meeting, or anything amus ing?" The porter stroked his chin reflect ively. "Well, er, no, nothing of that hkind. But-ah, now I come to think of it, we're shunting a goods train this evening down at the station at about ten o'clock, if you care to come and look on!"
The Household. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
The Household. A Good Thing to Have. Permanent Paste.-Dissolve slowly in a pint (or more) of water %oz. of glue and ½oz. of alum. Make ordin ary flour paste with this liquid and boil. When nearly cold, stir in two teaspoonfuls of oil of lavender or cloves. Keep in a well-corked jar. It is so strong, it fastens the cork to the glass, so it is well to put thin calico under the cork to lift it out with. This quantity makes a pint of paste. Household Hint. If new boots or shoes are put in linseed oil, enough to just cover the soles, in an old shallow baking pan, and allowed to remain in the oil a few days, they will be waterproof, flex ible, and will wear ever so much longer. A Savory. Rice Rarebit.-Melt one tablespoon ful of butter, add one tablespoonful of flour, a half teaspoonful of salt, one teaspoonful of mustard, and a quarter teaspoonul of paprika, and, when well blended, add slowly one cup of milk. Cook, stirring constant ly until creamy; then add a half-cup of cheese cut in sm...
Cute Move. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Cute Move. "Now, you fellows, help yourselves to the cigars!" cried Smith, genially, after dinner. "They are some my wife gave me for a Christmas pres ent." Gently, but very firmly, man after man vowed that he had sworn off smoking "for the duration of the war," and the dinner-party ended in a ghastly fizzle. "Whatever did you tell such a fib about those cigars for?" asked Mrs. Smith, in angry surprise, when the guests had departed. - "You know perfectly well that I gave you gloves for a Christmas present!" "Oh, that's all right, Mary," replied Smith, blandly.: "That box of cigars cost me forty-five shillings, and I can't afford to give any of them away!"
