FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Strike-a-Light." Dinked again, But not disgraced. The Yellow and Black, although de feated by South, put up a yellow metal game, which was in marked contrast to their poor pan out at Collingwood. There was, of course, the usual trouble before commencement; Cronk, Bayliss and Burke were unable to play and an even further sprinkling of "salad" oil had to be included. Black clouds are still above us, but the people seem to be turning their heads away from the travail and sor row of war and looking for something to lighten the load-the attendance at the Punt-road ground on Saturday was larger than any of last year's all in-the-four season. There must have been nearly 8000 persons around the ring, and £165 was taken at the gates-not much below pre-war gates, eh? From first bounce to last bell the game was packed with purple patches. Clean, bright and clever football was the order, and interspersing the pro gramme were such special features as the high marks and fine ...

UNDER GREY SKIES. CHILDREN CELEBRATE EMPIRE DAY. PROCEEDINGS AT CITY RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 26 May 1917
UNDER GREY SKIES. CHILDREN CELEBRATE EMPIRE DAY. PROCEEDINGS AT CITY RESERVE. Electric trams bedecked with flags and one lone Swan-street shopkeeper with the Australian flag proudly un furled outside his premises, were the only outward signs in Richmond's main southern thoroughfare indi cating to the passer-by that a world-wide event, Empire Day, was being celebrated here on Thursday. In Bridge-road the position was much the same. The Australian flag flut tered from the turret-mast of the town hall, and above Head and Co.'s build ing, and just a few other business places gave some recognition to the occasion. And that was all. The winter sun contrived to peep through grey clouds that gathered around in the morning, and for a little while it seemed likely that the day would turn out bright and cheerful. But the clouds closed up again, the sky grew black, and the rain teemed down. In the circumstances, a postponement of the children's celebrations in the afternoon appeared to be inevi...

Beauty Hints. CARE OF SKIN AND COMPLEXION [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
Beauty Hints. CARE OF SKIN AND COMPLEXION The skin consists of two principal layers-the dermis, or true skin; and the scarf, or outer skin, called the Sepidermis, which protects the true I skin from harmfuil agencies. The true skin is very sensitive, and consists of many little bundles of fine threads, among which lie blood-vessels, nerves, the sweat and sebaceous glands. Be low the dermis, or true skin, lie the fat cells, and below these the muscles. The sebaceous glands se crete an oil matter called sebum Nature's own face cream, which keeps the skin soft and pliable. The blood-vessels are very numerous in the skin of the face. It is from the circulation that the flush or color of the skin is derived. The scarf sion has no blood-vessels, but is made rc of a number of fine cells, which give it its smooth surface. Its object is one of protection. The upper cells are thrown off as fine scales, and are replaced as rapidly by new ones. The blood gives nourishment to the skin and suppli...
RISKS STOWAWAYS RUN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
RISKS STOWAWAYS RUN. Stowaways are unusually plentiful just now, owing to the number of young fellows anxious to avoid mill* tary service. Eleven were found con' cealed on single ship at the point of sailing from Liverpool recentlY, and nine on another outward-bound from Glasgow. These shirkers little realise what is in store for them if they are found, 1: however, or they would infinitely pre fer the possibility of facing death on the battlefield. Toiling in the stifling heat of the! stokehold, if the vessel is a steamer,` is their sual lot, or if they stow away on a sailing ship all the hardest and . dirtiest jobs on the voyage are their-, followed almost invariably by a term i of imprisonment at the end of the; voyage in either case. This is the best they may expect, if. they are lucky. But there are other, and far more deadly risks, that the stowaway unwittingly runs. Terrible tales are current amonf mariners of stowaways hiding in i°'! noraifce in the cold-storage rooms of meat...

Thrifty. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
Thrifty. As the minister was about to enter the local post office he met an ac quaintance well known for his thrifti ness coming out. "Hullo, Sandy," said the minister, "I suppose you have been in there buying some more war savings certi ficates?" "Na, na, ye're wrong," replied San dy. "I've only been in to fill my foun tain pen!" She was angry and she burst into the boot-shop unceremoniously. "Do you know," she said, "that those shoes you sold me last week squeak so much that they keep me awake at nights?" "My dear madam," said the shoe dealer, bluntly, "I did not know you wanted to sleep in them." Something To Look Forward To. Two ministers in the north-east of Scotland met one day, when the fol lowing conversation took place: "'Last Sunday," remarked one, "only three folk cam' to my kirk, and, as it was an awfu' cauld, stormy. snawy day, I took them over to the manse, read a chapter o' the Bible. gied them a prayer, and then a guid stiff glass of the best whisky." "Weel,' weel," ...
"Oh, Jackie!" Say Girls Who Hold Love Stories Too Long—Fines Imposed for Delay in Returning Library Books. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
"Oh, Jackie!" Say Girls Who Hold Love Stories Too Long - Fines Imposed for Delay in Returning Library Books. Little Jack O'Brien, assistant librar ian for Richmond City Council, is sit ting and smiling through a lot of good humored banter these days. It must help to break the monotony of the little chap's present task in assisting to write up the municipal rate books. It all happened this way. Two new books recently found their way to the shelves of the local lending library. That was strange enough, but, stranger still, the new arrivals are copies of the latest and most up-to date thriller that has been issued since' August 4, 1914, when all fiction took a new turn. From that date there has had to be a soldier and a nurse or two in them. These were only cheap prints, but the girls who carried them off were well satisfied too well satisfied, for they hugged them far too long. Others saw the new books on the catalogue and want ed them, but not for weeks afterwards were they returned....
The Housewives' Column NUTRITIVE POTATO DISHES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
The Housewives' Column NUTRITIVE POTATO DISHES. In these days of scarcity and high price of food, housewives will do well to make more use of the potato. On a cold day a basin of well-made potato soup with some fried sippets of bread in it is both delicious and nourish. ing; and a pie composed either of meat or vegetables is far more sub. stantial if covered with a potato paste. Potato omelet, also, may be a novelty to some readers. In it egg powder can be substituted for fresh eggs, and if baked in an omelet pan in a hot oven it will provide an excel. lent and satisfying dish; the addition of a little grated cheese is an iot. provement. Savory Potato Pie. Fry a tablespoonful of finely-minced onion in a little fat until it is of a golden brown, then remove the pan from the stove. Put a layer of par. boiled, close potatoes into a buttered dish, scatter over them some of the fried onion, some chopped celery (or celeriac), some minced parsley and a little salt, pepper, and nutmeg, and ...

Bad for the Rabbit. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
Bad for the Rabbit. About Christmas time every year a clergyman goes to a farm a- few miles out to have a day's shooting. He is a very poor "shot," but a gener ous giver-facts well known to Jack, the attendant. Last Christmas he was out shoot ing, and a rabbit jumped up about ten yards away. Bang went both barrels, but bunny escaped with a whole skin. "Did I hit him, Jack?" asked the parson, in an excited whisper. "Well," said Jack, thoughtfully, "I couldna say 'zactly as you 'it 'im, but I mus' say I nivver seed a rabbit wuss scared. Ye're vastly improved sin' last year, sir." The clergyman smiled proudly. "An' if ye keeps on improvin' and comes agin next year, why"-with a shake of his head-"summat'll hap pen to that rabbit!"
FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Strike-a-Light." Geelong-eese Were very tame Swans. And Richmond left the Step. Also, they expect to move a step higher at Fitzroy on Monday. Now the new men have been pro perly Jintroduced to each other they are taking unto themselves a bit of responsibility and are not afraid of moving about the house without the guidance of the host. Saturday's game was a game of ex tremes. Richmond made the field a chessboard and they showed all the calculation, combination and concen tration that all good chess players must show if they hope to win. Leav ing out a couple of blanks, they had just a chess team, but with the differ ence that there were few variants. Instead of one king they had several, and those who were not kings were queens, or bishops, or knights. It was Geelong who held all the rooks and pawns. Richmond played well for position, and their kings went on unchecked. Geelong, on the other hand, would get well up, but only to be captured and swept from the boa...
Thursday. May 31. Before J. R. Le Pine and W. Burgess, J's.P. Was Evening Cloak Given or Lent?—Lodger and Landlady Ask Court to Decide. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
Thursday, May 31. Before J. R. Le Pine and W. Burgess, J's.P. Was Evening Cloak Given or Lent? Lodger and Landlady Ask Court to Decide. There are usually so many debt cases and other-trifling matters at the Thursday court that the real business is ot commenced until mid-day. There were fewer of these time wasters-than usual on this occasion, but a claim for illegal detention of an evening cloak held the court up until a quarter to one. -The coat was valuedl by its owner at £4 4/-, by the bench at £2 2/-, and a dressimaker declined to fix any definite value for it, but said she would not pay £1 for it. So it went on. Writer is no judge of 'evening -cloaks, but a pass ing glance gave him the impression that if all the witnesses and others who were wasting their time in the 1 court subscribed from 6d. to 1/- each on\ a sliding scale, according to the money they were losing, a new coat might have been purchased and all would have been well. Outside issues without number were dragged in....
