The Weakness of William. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
The Weakness of William. Carefully the burglar . effected an entrance into. the bank. - He found the way to the strong room. When the light from his lantern fell on the door he saw the sign: "Save your dynamite. This safe is not locked. -Turn. the knob and open." For a moment he ruminated. "Anyhow, there's no harm in try ing it if it is really unlocked." He grasped the knob and turned. Instantly the office was flooded with light, an alarm bell rang loudly, an electric shock rendered him helpless, whil3 a door in the wall opened and a bulldog rushed out and seized him. "I know what's .wrong. with me," he sighed an hour later when .the cell-door closed upon him; "I've too much faith in human nature-I'm too trusting."
Italy's New Army. A YEAR AGO AND NOW. Italian General Headquarters, February. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Italy's New Army. A- YEAR AGO AND NOW. From Dr. Mario Borsa. Italian General Headquarters, .. , February. lfy.v isit to the Italian front has convinced me that the military 'situa tion ;may now be viewed with full. confidence, considering especially the great work that has been done lately, both in .the consolidation of our pre sent positions and the preparation for a further advance. But,?-if. our war machine is satis factory; the spirit of our men is even more so. What a difference to what it was a year ago! There was a timei when our troops looked towards the i future development of operations with a feeling of dismay. Not that they were. individually disheartened or had. lost:' confidence in themselves; on the contrary. That was just the time.:when .they were exhibiting the most conspicuous gallantry; when the old ,men who had served under Garibaldi- and had volunteered in this war,. intolerant of trench warfare, •jumped out clad in their red 'shirts and ran against the enemy's ...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
Ladies' Letter. There is a demand among the thinking people of the community tor the services of women inspectors in the work of investigation inciden tal to the administration of the vari ous war funds, and there is no doubt whatever that such work is the spe cial province of women, for it is into the homes of women that the in quirers must go. An instance of the delicacy of the work attached to such inspection came under my notice the other day, when a lady inspector visiting a cottage in an outlying suburb, finding the front door partly ajar and hearing a faint voice say "Come in," entered a bedroom in which was lying in bed a young wo man with her three days' old baby. She was entirely alone in the house, as the neighbor who gave her an hour or so's attendance daily had gone home to get her husband's din ner. The visitor made her inspection and inquiries, and was able to do a few small services for the young mother, and all was well; but if a man had gone on the same errand, he ...
A QUID I HEAD 'EM. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
A QUID I HEAD_'EM. During the sinking of the trans port' Ballarat; some of the Australian soldiers' played t\io-up until forced to leave the ship. i was on the good ship Ballarat (A sea yarn always starts like that); The. wind was light, the sea was flat, The ship was scarce careening. The sailors were the usual sort, A different wife in every port, No one on board had half a thought Of submarining. The water, as I said, was calm, They felt afar from hurt and harm; The climate, full of briny balm, Was made to order. The second mate walked to and fro, His eye upon the sky-line low, The captain's gramaphone below Played Harry Lauder. Instant arose a periscope -From something that can dive and grope, . Which laggard liners haVe no hope S.Of ever dodging. Before their eyes they could believe .Prepared the crystal seas to cleave, They saw . aHun torpedo leave Its fire-tube lodging. "A tin-fish," yelled a thousand throats And 'mid the bugle's warning notes .The soldiers tramped towards th...

The Wheat Must be Saved TO MEET GREAT BRITAIN'S CRYING NEED. AUSTRALIA'S GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY. WANTED-MILLS FOR THE GRIST Australia's special patriotic duty to the Empire at. this time only begins With tithd sending of men to the front. England ??to-day is one great armed camp. '`ll save the primary arts of peace are virtually suspended. The people,, with. exceptions too insignifi cant in the comparison to be note worthy on a general view, are with one common heart and purpose put ting" all their energies into the win ning of the war. Britain has to feed and equip her huge new armies; she has to furnish substantial help to her .!iic:, and she has to maintain and keep physically fit a second huge army of :workers at home, workers vitally essential to the whole scheme and need _of' war. For the bread of her earnest millions she relies chiefly to-day on Canada and Australia. Rus sian supplies are inaccessible.

THE WISDOM OF ARTEMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
THE WISDOM ?OF ARTEMAS. "Take heed, my son, and hearken unto the words of Artemas, for there are. many that.will give thee counsel, yet wisdom cometh only from the few. "2. Put not thy trust in princes, for their bond is of paper that teareth easily. "3. Beware of the woman that 'fol loweth thee about, for she is after thy regimental buttons. "4. And if she is safe, then is she a fool, but if, she is otherwise, then is she the devil. "5. When thou goest forth for to fight, take care that thou smitest thine enemy in the back, for it is the mark of a good fighter so to do. "6. Also, he that shooteth his ene my through the head sheddeth light upon his understanding. "7. When the foe doth stand two in a line, shoot thou thy bolt, for then will thine execution be twofold. Ver ily I say unto thee. Await thine op portunity, for a shell in time is as good as a mine. "8.

IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE. The man who didn't advertise Was dead-extremely dead. His widow placed (of mammoth size) A stone above his head. She put his name upon- the same, In letters large and fair, To tell the eye of passers-by Her Man. was sleeping there. Folks thought her sorrow must be great To raise this monument They did not know (she did not state) Her actual intent. One day there came a former flame; He read; then soothed his sighs; And, as she wed, she softly said; "IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE!". -Havana "Times." Ginger:. "Garn, yer father couldn't pass the doctor!" Puddin': "Burr! Yours can't pass a pub." Sydney "Bulletin." The will of a wounded Anzac, vouched for by his hospital doctor Should I chuck a seven, I leave all my dough to my cobber.

WHAT WE ARE COMING TO. She: "Are they so awfully rich?" He: "Rich? Why, woman, she uses NEWSPAPERS to cover her pantry shelves.-New York "Judge.' More machine guns and fewer ma chine politicians are among the cry ing needs of the country.-Los An geles "Times." A boundary rider's home in the country "back of beyond" is thus de scribed:-We got on the wrong track several times, but were really lost only once. This happened on a Sun day afternoon between Lake Victoria and Wentworth. We had been that way before, but the late track had been washed out by a flood, and it was very difficult to follow the way. It sounds easy to keep going in a given direction, following the wheel marks of the other fellow, but it is a differ ent matter to experience it, as the windings are many, and billabongs, creeks, and washouts occur, besides which trees and saltbush cover the way, and often the wheel marks peter out altogether. The shadows got long, and the sun went down, and left us stranded beside a b...
The Paper Famine POSITION IN BRITAIN. PAPERS SMALLER. PRICES HIGHER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
The Paper Famine POSITION IN BRITAIN. PAPERS SMALLER. PRICES HIGHER. Paper may soon be worth its weight in gold. There is a universal short age, and supplies have fallen greatly below consumption. The output of paper must be limited by every morn ing and evening journal, weekly newspapers and magazines through out Australia. Steps have already been taken in this direction in Great Britain, Canada, India,. and South Africa, and Australia cannot much longer, dally on the same road. Great Britain drew largely upon Scandinavia for her paper pulp and for her manufactured paper. Since the war began there has been a steady declension in these, imports, and the British Government has from time to time compulsorily restricted the quantity of paper which any news paper might use. Recently the ag gravation of the submarine campaign has very markedly reduced the ship ping available for sea transpbrt, and the British Government has now di rected that the 1,800,000 tons of pa per imported shall b...
HOME-WEARY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
HOME-WEARY. Give me the sights of the Bush to see That I only see in dreaming; The silver moon on a myall tree, The sun on a sandhill gleaming; The dip and lurch of a ten-ton load, As it swings through a Western clearing, The dust of a mob on the open road Through the -scattered salt-bush steering! Give me the sounds of the Bush to hear: The bells of the horses jangling; The magpies .carolling sweet and clear, And the laughing-jackies wrangl ing; SThe clang of a slip-rail dropped in place, The drum of a bare hoof beating, The clatter of sheep in the drafting race, And the click of the swing-gates meeting! Give me the scents of the Bush again In the good grey land down under: The scent of the red gums after rain When the ridges roll with thunder: The .reek of the dust when the scrub bers ring, In the trampled yard-wings turning; The scent of a sandal bush in spring, And the smell of a box-log burn ing! Give me the sun-swept plains im mense, Where the countless herds are feed ing, The...
A BRITISH SAILOR'S OATH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
A BRITISH SAILOR'S OATH. An' if - ever I take a German's pay again in.steam or sail, Or handle German cargo mnore, baulk or barrel or bale, If ever I put finger o' mine on stuff a German owns Or help to fill a German till with workin' o' my bones If-ever I risk life o' mine (as I 'ave done before!) To fetch some Bremen merchant home his nitrates or his ore, I wish I may dream o' nothin' but sinkin' ships an' drownin' men, An' wake out o' the dream, an' sleep, an' dream it all again. Dead bodies liftin' on: the swell strong seamen once like me An' fellers wounded, freezin' to death in open boats. at sea, Babies, an' girls with long wet hair, an' mothers mad with woe, The devil's job-the square-'eads' job -I seen it an' I know! I never did 'ave no use for Germans -an' when this war is done, There .MAY BE THOSE that will for get-well, I SHALL NOT BE ONE! An' by them ships I pass my word an' by them souls I swear, There'll be hot times in Sailor-town when,:I meet a square-'ead there! -"...
CUTTINGS FROM "DANDELIONS." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
ICUTTINGS FROM "DANDELIONS." "The opinions of the old in mat ters of love are of little -value." "He once said to me that life was finished for the man who married be fore .he was thirty." "You may always know that a wo man of the world is really old when she says that to do a certain thing would be 'unkind.' One grows mel low as the years leave the passions of youth further and further behind." "A man can have a devil of a fine time all his life-if he does not over step the limit. A woman is-well, a woman is a woman. But sometimes she can get some fun on her way-if she has a brain; if she has a certain kind of brain." - "Dandelions," by Coulson Cade. "Why don't I enlist?" queried the stalwart drunk. "No use, sergeant. Doctor wouldn't pash me. Bin on the drunk too long." "Oh, that won't matter," repliedthe recruiting officer. "Come along with me. They'll be able to use you at the front as a tank." -Launceston "Courier."

SAILING COMPANIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
SAILING COMPANIONS. Still, friend, the wind of life is in the sails, As here on deck we tell each other tales Of love and love, and mix them in with songs Of Shakespeare and the other night ingales. Still the adventurous sea of life to cruise, At night to anchor 'mid the stars and dews, At morn to range along the golden sands, Then float among the crystal greens and blues. And when the last mysterious-port we hail, And drop the anchor down and furl the sail, I think the love betwixt us here be gun In that uncharted country shall not fail. -Richard Le Galliene, in "Har per's Monthly."
