COMBED OUT! [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
COMBED OUT! "Indeed it is not fair that you should stay, While others at the front are cap tives led, That you retain your freedom day by day It must not be," the maiden sternly said. "Unstable-tossed by all the winds that blow, Since others have obeyed the pow'rs' decree, You really must without resistance go, Nor linger more, inconsequently free. "It seems a trifle hard, yet thus it is," The maiden said with sweet, regret ful pout, "For fashion has decreed no curls or frizz, So, golden ringlet, I must comb you out."

HELD UP AN ARMY CORPS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
HELD UP AN ARMY CORPS: A young Frenchwoman named Marcelle Semmer, was recently de corated with the Croix de Guerre and the Legion of Honor for her bravery during the retreat in the first days of the war. After the French had crossed the Somme and its canal, Marcelle Semmer had the presence of mind to open the sluice gates in order to prevent the enemy from crossing. This act of heroism was carried out under the fire of the Ger mans, and as a result the enemy army corps was held up until the following morning. Remaining in the village, she was able to pick up and -hide a number of exhausted French soldiers, whom she helped to escape in civilian clothes. Having been caught by the enemy in the act of feeding a French soldier in a thicket, she was con demned to death. She was on the point of being executed when the French artillery dispersed the Ger mans. Hiding in an underground vault, she was saved next daJ on the re-taking of the village by the French. Whilst serving as a guide to a ...

Wonderful Picture. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Wonderful Picture. "Are you the man who painted that 'ere picture of 'Moses in the Bul rushes'?" asked a countryman of an artist who had recently startled the town by an exhibition of oil . paint ings. "Yes," replied the artist. "All right; then I want you to paint my father." "Certainly, if he will only give me a few sittings." "Can't do it; he's dead." "Let me have a photograph of him." "Can't do that neither. He never had his picture taken." "I am afraid, tnen, I must de cline." "Decline! What for? Haven't you painted Moses? You didn't have a photograph of him, did you? No, I thought not. Well, my father hain't been dead nearly so long as Moses. If you can paint Moses, you ought to know enoug' to paint my father." Appreciating the situation, the ar tist went to work and evolved such a portrait as he thought might satisfy so original a son. "Crikey!" exclaimed this art pa tron, on seeing the completed paint ing. "That almost knocks the stuff in' out of Moses; but, I say, how he ha...
"Sold." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
"Sold." Possibly it may be argued that a certain burglar was rather foolish to break into the house of a Hebraic gentleman, knowing how carefully Jews guard their valuables, but at any rate he showed remarkable pre sence of mind in the emergency that resulted. In the midst of his depre dations the electric light was snapped up, and the burglar found himself looking into the ugly muzzle of a re volver. "Hands up, or I shoot!" announced the proprietor of the house at the other end of the revolver. "Ten pounds for that pistol!" cried the burglar. "Done!" snapped the other as he handed over the weapon. Payne: Sandie, How can you tell if a dog has hydrophobia? "Well," he replied,. "if it bites you, and you don't die, he hasn't .got it; but if you die, then you - know the dog was mad." Her Dad: No, sir; I won't have my daughter tied for life to a stupid fool. i Her Suitor: Then don't you think you'd better let me take her -off your. hands?
"Too Good for English." U BOAT BARS SUDDEN DEATH. BOY LEFT TO THE WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
"'Too Good for English." U BOAT BARS SUDDEN DEATH. BOY LEFT TO THE WAVES. An amazing story was told by John Duff, a 15-year-old cadet of the Brit ish merchant service, the only sur vivor oZ -the. British ship Thracia, sunk by a submarine torpedo off the French coast; on arriving at a French port. With' six others' of the crew, the boy managed to get away in a partly wrecked lifeboat, half-full of water. Four were so badly wounded they soon died; the fifth perished of ex posure, and the sixth was washed overboard by a great wave and drowned. Alone in the wrecked boat, in the darkness (for the Tracia was sunk after nightfall), with the seas break ing every moment over him, young Duff managed to hang on for a long time, he thinks two hours at least. Suddenly a huge dark body loomed up out of the gloom and a voice hailed him. He replied with what lit tle voice he had left, but the sub marine commander merely asked him a few questions as to the ship, her cargo, and her destination, and i...
PRECIOUS PRIVILEGES. Saving Men From the Gallows. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
PRECIOUS PRIVILEGES. Saving Men From the Gallows. Military decorations frequently carry with them curious privi leges. For instance, the Legion of Honor, the coveted French decora tion, protects its owner from being sentenced to imprisonment. If a member of the Legibn of Honor has committed any crime, he cannot be sentenced until he has been formally expelled from the Legion. This is done by the judge saying: "You have been found wanting in hon or; in the name of the Legion I sol emnly expel you from its ranks." After that the law takes its ordinary course. A curious and solemn privilege is attached to the Russian Order of the Cross of St. Andrew, which was founded in '1698 by Peter the Great, to incite his nobles to deeds of valor in the war with Turkey, which was then being carried on. Any man up .on whom this decoration has been conferred may once in his life demand the: Imperial pardon for a fellow countryman awaiting death on the gallows.
The "Guardian" INCREASE IN PRICE. On and After June 2, 2d. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
T. Elkington* Again Wins in St Stephen's Race Home - Juniors Enjoy Runs After "Gym." Except for a rather strong head wind encountered on the home jour ney, conditions for paper-chasing were ideal at Caulfield on Saturday, and the twenty-one St. Stephen's Harriers who visited the locality thoroughly en joyed the outing. Led by Gordon Newton, with Frank McMinn as his first "litentenant," the slow pack, consisting mostly of jun iors, laid a trail over five or six miles of splendid country in the vicinity of Glenhuntly and Ormond railway sta tions. Leaving seven or eight min utes later, the fast pack caught the slows, just after entering the race course on the return journey, where the runners were again divided into two divisions-novices and seniors. Six hundred yards was considered far enough for the juniors, who provided a splendid contest-a close finish re sulting in Tom Elkington just beat ing Jack Inglis, with Tom Thornton in third position. The seniors' half mile spurt saw George...
A Hot Day. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
A Hot Day. Murphy had resided in the Arctic regions since the days of his youth, and, returning to his native land one midsummer, started work as a navvy. It was a hot day. Ere long he began to sweat profusely, and.the perspira tion ran out down his face in little streams. Genuinely alarmed, he threw down his pick-axe and was walking away, when the foreman shouted:- "Murphy, an'. where are ye goin'?" "I'm a-goin' to the doctor's," moan ed Murphy. "Och! it's terrible-ter rible; an' Oi never knew." 'But phwat for?" inquired the anxious foreman. "Och! Can't ye see?" said .Murphy pathetically, pointing to his streaming face. "Oi've got water on the brain, be jabers! an' may .the holy saints presarve us! it's boiling over!" A well-known Highland drover sold a horse to an Englishman. A few days afterwards the buyer returned to him. "You said that horse had no faults." "Weel, no mair had he." "He's pearly blind!" said the indig- - nant Englishman. "Why, mon, that's no' his fau't that's his...
Frank Anstey. LABOR'S DYING VOLCANO. STORMY PETREL OF FEDERAL POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Frank Anste). LABOR'S DYING VOLCANO. STORMY PETREL OF FEDERAL POLITICS. Frank Anstey, M.H.R., is to out ward appearance the most formid able figure in the Leagued Labor Party of Australia, as it remains after recent convulsions; yet he is not formidable. His potential force lacks its environment. ;He has the character which could become gigan tesque, if not heroic, in. days of tu multuous revolution; a- powerful in tellect which succumbs to passion, and a will overwhelmed by emotion. Circumstance has combined with temperament to make Mr. Anstey a man without a Day of Arrival. The occasion on which I first per ceived the genius for rhetoric which is ,in Mr. Frank Anstey was an all night sitting of the Legislative Assembly of Victoria. ZIen on both sides of the House were stone-walling. A proposition had been made that passages from Scripture should be placed in State schoolbooks, . to be read to children by teachers "with unsectarian comment." Dulness had sat undisturbed in that Asse...
Gloria Learns Bitter Truth in Top-Notch Feature of Her Romance—In Trousers and Skirts Mae Murray Will Charm National Audiences. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Gloria Learns Bitter Truth in Top Notch Feature of Her Romance In Trousers and Skirts Mae Murray Will Charm National Audiences. Ever-popular Billie Burke will be seen in the fifth feature of Gloria's Romance, entitled The Bitter Truth, at the National on Monday. The dark est hour of Gloria's love affair is the most fascinating of all-when she is haunted by a terrible suspicion about her brother's complicity in the crime that has overshadowed her life. Then comes the cruel blow of the truth in all its sordid tragedy. Another fea ture of merit is The Plow Girl, with Mae Murray in the title role. It is a stirring story of South Africa, depict ing rough scenes on a cattle farm. Theodore Roberts gives a fine charac terisation of the grim, brutal farmer, and Mae Murray does fine work, first as the down-trodden be-trousered girl of the veldt, and then as the society belle. It Is a picture with a punch. The Keystone will be Stars and Bars. Jack Pickford makes his debut with Famous Players i...

Even the Labor Leagues Dissatisfied with state of Richmond strets—sharp Letter to council Brings Rebuke from Labor Representatives. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Even the Labor Leagues Dissatisfied with State of Richmond Streets Sharp Letter to Cbuncil Brings Re buke from Labor Representatives. There was trouble in the Labor camp at the council chamber on Monday night when a letter was read from the Richmond branch of the Political Labor Council complaining about the "disgraceful state of the Richmond streets." "Is that a vote of no-confidence by the Labor League?" asked Cr. Mor gan. "I don't know -what it is in that re spect," declared Cr. Robinson, the new representative for the West Ward, "but I do know that there is a whole lot of truth in it. I invite councillors to come with me through the West Ward and see some of the streets." "Why the West Ward more than any other?" asked a councillor. "Because I am interested more par ticularly in the West Ward," declared Cr. Robinson, "but I will freely admit that the complaint can be applied to the whole city. Something has got to be done in this matter. We have the report of our health officer b...
On the Frontier. DOWNCAST GERMANS IN SWITZERLAND. "Daily Mail" Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
On the Frontier. DOWNCAST GERMANS IN SWITZERLAND. "Daily Mail" Correspondent. "How funny it is, sir," a Swiss waiter said to me one morning, "that here you are sleeping under the same roof, eating and drinking in the same room, often at the same table, with Germans, while at no great dis; tance British and Germans are at death grips!" If talking to Germans in coffee houses, restaurants, and smoking rooms, talking to Germans fattening up on Swiss food, and Germans in terned and externed (i.e., deserters) is "consorting with the King's enem ies" and an "offence at law," then I must plead guilty. The fact is that every type of German can be found in Switzerland, and once there you cannot help meeting them. It is true that wealthy and in fluential Germans visit Switzerland to take a "food cure," but they are not so much in evidence as one would imagine. They prefer to take their meals in the privacy of their own rooms. There are also 10,000 interned German prisoners, many of whom can be...
