Success to Little Herbert. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 25 July 1914
Success to Little Herbert. An interesting event that happened in the household of Cr. Morgan, a few days ago, was the subject of con gratulatory remarks in the Mayor's room on Monday evening last, and the toast of " Success to Little Her bert and his parents" was heartily honoured. The cool temperature on Monday | evening must have kept councillors at i home by the fire longer than usual. It was 8.10 before a bare quorum of councillors was present.. The meet ing should be commenced at 7.30. However, a bad beginning resulted in a_ good- ending, for eventually the whole of the councillors put in an appearance, which is a rare occur rence.

LONDON SOCIETY AND SO CIETY .JOURNALISM. THE CHANGES IN THIRTY YEARS. Three men-Labouchere, Edmund YateB, and Grenville Murray-were the real originators of the form of newspaper enterprise known as so ciety journalism,, and, though La bouchere came latest into the fiolu on his own account, his was the most original and indep :n lent . mind ' of the three. Yates, an extraordinary. shrewd; pfithing, and clear-headed man of the wcild, had no parti ii'Iar aim other than that of making money. 7it, knew . very well. that there were gruio numbers of highly respect abh persons who looked with an avid, but for the most part futile, cur iosity on the gilded and briHiant existence of what used to be ta'Ud in thp mid-Victorian days the uj.vei Ten Thousand, and he raked in 1 is sixpences by ministering to that natural, and not illegitimate, senti ment. He glazed the walls of Picca dilly and Mayfair, and allowed the people passing their sober days in suburban villas and country parson ages to beh...

HAUGHTY! . A man travelling on a Scotch ex press one day . left his seat in the dining car just after, he had ordered his luncheon, his purpose being to get something he. had left in an other compartment. On returning h3 found a handsomely-dressed wo man in his place, in spite of the fact that, he had left' a magazine there, and when he informed- her wfth per fect politeness that the seat had iicen taken by him, the usurper turned on. him with flashing eyes. "Sir," she exclaimed haughtily, "'do you know I am one of the directors' wives ?" - "My dear madam," he replied, "'if you were the director's- only wife I should still ask for my seat!"
Our Streets. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 25 July 1914
Our Streets. I The state of the main toads was' the subject of strong remarks at the Council meeting on Monday evening last. Cr. Davies spoke of Bridge-road particularly, and said that Swan street also required more attention. He suggested that the sweeping ma chine should be brought more into requisition. Cr. O'Connell also put in a strong plea for Bridge-road, and Cr. Gleadell voiced-the complaints of people at the lower, end of Swan street, and in Madden-grove. Strange to say, the North Ward councillors remained silent. Probably they arc satisfied that the Surveyor is doing his best to look after their require ments. The recent death of a sister of Cr. Street was referred to in sympathetic terms in the Council on Monday evening last by Cr. Flevill, and the Town Clerk was instructed to for ward a letter of condolence to the relatives. During the past few weeks no fewer than five councillors have suffered family bereavements, viz., the Mayor, and Crs. Alexander, Davies, Burgess, an...
