Burnley Honor Board in Bridge Road Window—Many Names Still to be Added to List of 309 [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

Burnley Honor Board in Bridge Road Window-Many Names Still to be Added to List of 309 Unveiled with fitting ceremony and marked by a memorable speech by Sir John Madden the handsome roll of honor board for Burnley State School is now on view in the windows of Nunan, Collins and Co., Bridge road, opposite town hall, and has at tracted much 4ttention. In last week's issue space and time forbade more than passing notice to the fine pro gramme presented. Children of the school had been well trained for the occasion, and joined heartily in the choruses of the various patriotic songs. When little Yvonne Conly Wilmot joined her father in the sing ing of "Till the Boys Come Home" (otherwise "Keep the Home Fires Burning"), and the school children joined in the refrain, it was a memor able burst of melody and enthusiastic, spontaneous patriotic sentiment. Ma dame Lena Wilmot Conly, of Swan street, was also heard to especial ad vantage, and the large audience gave full acknowledgment of her ge...

Going Back But Moving Upward, P.C. Constable Koetsveld to be Promoted.—Public Recognition of Splendid Work Here is Suggested. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

Going Back But Moving Upward, P.C. Constable Koetsveld to be Promo ted.-Public Recognition of Splen did Work Here is Suggested. Richmond will shortly be' losing the. straightest and one of the ablest and most courteous public officers that this city has ever had the good fortune to possess. After 15 years of invaluable work here, Plain-clothes Constable A. E. Koetsveld is to be promoted senior constable. In other words, this eminently capable but always tactful officer has reached the stage when the circumlocutory, hopelessly obsolete methods of the Police Department demand that to en sure his future prospects he must put aside the wealth of experience he has gained as an investigation offi cer; he must even make a sacrifice in salary and- allowance, and he must don the blue uniform and re port for routine work. Koetsveld, one of the most observant, shrewdest and efficient plain-clothes men the Vic torian police and detective force has known, on beat duty! Gilber tian, yes, but more...

Visiting Nurses' Work in Industrial Suburbs—Needs of Intermediary Class Met in New Arrangement. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

Visiting Nurses' Work in Industrial Suburbs-Needs of Intermediary Class Met in New Arrangement. Performing valuable work in the community, the Visiting Trained Nurses' Association is seeking to have a visiting nurse established in every suburb. This extension of the movement is calculated to meet the need of many people who are unable to obtain the services of a full-time trained nurse owing to the serious and increasing shortage, or those who, in the interest of patriotic move ments, wish to pursue a course of private economy, as well as to meet the need of the intermediary class which is its primary object. The association provides visiting attendance where a resident or full time nurse is considered unnecessary or where want of space prohibits her employment. Patients receive the professional attendance that is indis pensable and are charged for just that and nothing else in the way of board or laundry. The nurses take up the work at their own risk, without any assurance against ...

Held Up Hun Army. HEROIC FRENCH GIRL. TWICE FACED FIRING SQUAD. DRAMATIC STORY OF MARCELLE SEMMER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

Held Up Hun Army. HEROIC FRENCH GIRL. TWICE FACED FIRING SQUAD. DRAMATIC STORY OF MARCELLE SEMMER. In a girl of 21, an orphan of sim plest peasant stock, France has found her Edith Cavell (writes Lincoln Eyre, Paris correspondent of "The World"). More fortunate than Eng land, however, the Republic can take to her heart the living form of her most glorious daughter, upon whose bosom she has already pinned the Cross of the Legion of Honor and the Cross of War-a combination no wo man has ever before been privileged to wear. For, although on. two separate occa sions she stood blindfolded before a German firing squad the heroine, whose name will blaze in history be side that of the martyred English woman, has lived to hear her coun try's plaudits and to receive the re cognition that is her due. It came tardily enough, too, that recognition, for it was only last month 'hat M. Klotz, Deputy for the Depart ment of the Somme, speaking in the amphitheatre of the Sorbonne, reveal 3d to the Fre...

BECOMING AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

BECOMING AN AMERICAN' CITIZEN. The annual report of.. the. United States Department of the Interior re lieves the dullness of its statistics by an account of the picturesque cere monial that is followed when a native Indian is released from the paternal care of the Indian Bureau and admit ted to the full responsibilities. of American citizenship. The representative of the Depart ment, calling upon him by his Indian name, hands him a bow and' ariow, and instructs him to shoot the arrow. When he has shot it he is. told: "You have shot your last. arrow. That means that you are no longer-to live the life of an Indian. You are from this day forward to live the life of a white man. But you may keep that arrow. It will be to you a symbol of your noble race ahd of the pride you feel that you come from the first of all Americans." The new eitizen is then addressed by the white name he is henceforth to bear, and is asked to take hold of the handles of a plough. This' act is interpreted to him...

OUR BRAVE TOMMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

OUR BRAVE TOMMIES. A correspondent at the British Front sends two stories heard at first hand at the base from men who have come out of the front line. One concerns a mess in the front line which was envied of all the neigh boring units because it enjoyed fresh vegetables every day. The cook and batman was often asked about it. His reply was invariable. "We get them from a garden near by," he always said. At last the supply ceased. The mess soon asked why. "We've had all there were,"- said the cook, "ex cept a few that were right on the edge of the Boche trench." Then it turn ed out that he had gone out every night into "No Man's Land" and gathered green vegetables from a garden which ran right down to the German front line. A chaplain told the next:-"It is astonishing," he said, "what the chaps will do to get a brew of tea. We were being badly strafed by the German guns when a shell set fire to. a haystack just beside our lines. The illumination didn't lessen the strafing, you may ...

Paper Famine MILITARY AUTHORITIES PERTURBED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

Paper Famine MILITARY AUTHORITIES PERTURBED. The military authorities are con cerned over the paper supply ques tion. The ' following announcement, was issued from Victoria Barracks last week: "The Commonwealth is faced with a severe paper famine. Shortage of paper is already being felt' in other parts'of the world, and the newspap ers in London and elsewhere have greatly reduced their size and output. Stocks of paper in Australia cannot last very much longer, and it is con sidered that there is little probability of sufficient being imported to meet requirements. Members of the De fence Force and all concerned are re quested to do their part by avoiding, even in the smallest way, the waste of paper and stationery of any kind. By so doing they will be assisting to save something thht may be badly required for their work later on.' -

Available New Industries OPPORTUNITIES FOR AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

Available New Industries OPPORTUNITIES FOR AUSTRALIA An interesting address on new in dustries which could readily be es tablished in Australia was delivered last week at the offices of the Victor ian Education Department by Mr. J. Perrott, at a meeting of the general council of the Institute of Victorian industries. Professor Payne was in the chair. The industries which were discuss ed were what Mr. Perrott described as "tertiary," and comprised a very wide range, though, as the speaker re marked, many of them could readily be established to-morrow. At the pre sent time, he said, we must lay out our industries from a military point of view. Some might not be profit able, but experience had shown that they were absolutely necessary. Australia had been importing im rfiense quantities of butter from Austria. We used from four thousand. to five thousand gross of buttons each working day, made of imitation bone. The Defence Department was using some buttons made of vegetable ivory, whic...

On the Tigris CAMPAIGN IN MESOPOTAMIA. VIVID FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

On the Tigris CAMPAIGN IN MESOPOTAMIA. VIVID FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT. Any first-hand information as to what sort of a time our chaps are hav ing. in Mesopotamia is of high inter est. We hear little of the conditions under which they are living and fight ing, and what little we hear is con fined to the' all too brief letters their scanty leisure allow's them to write. And that information is confined to those immediately in receipt of such letters and their friends. There is ample justification, therefore, for the publication of the following article from a recent issue of Land and Water from the pen of J. A. Higgs Walker. The incidents referred to oc curred some months back, but the picture of the donditions of life in the country are as true to-day as when those incidents happened.. A long day-a day of interminable, relentless heat, of choking dust, of seemingly endless toil; in retrospect, a. memory of parched mouth, empty water bottle, chattering, stupid native drivers, frightened, ex...

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

Ladies' Letter. There is rejoicing in the French Australian family of Crivelli at Albert Park. Dr. Crivelli, pere, you know, is one of our very biggest doc tors, and the Crivelli boys were all following in father's footsteps till the war broke out. One or two of them were in France and the other just put his 'Varsity books aside and sailed for the land of mademoiselle by the, first steamer. They have all won hon ors. Madame Crivelli, the mother of the boys, has done tremendous work for the war funds here, especially in connection with anything Frenchy. However, this is not to do with the war, though it does come from troub led France. Only it is good news, wafted by cable conveying the glad tidings of Dr. Louis Crivelli's engage ment to a charming young Parisienne, Mademoiselle Yvonne Huet. Pa and Ma at Albert Park are already looking forward eagerly to welcoming the bride-to-be, for they :know all about her, as the daughter of friends of the family in Paris. So' here at least is on...

DREAMLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917

DREAMLIGHT. Oh,. I am lonely by a desert palm, And dreaming, dreaming on the sands of. thought; Oh, come to me from out the voiceless calm And teach me what the Nile has left untaught. Bring to me a draught of Southern wine, The perfume of the ne'er-forgotten rose. Then let me drink beside some ancient shrine, And drinking let. my tired eyelids close. Come near to me. The fast night hours are few, For every hour is fast when moons are clear. Scatter from my hair the desert dew And lilt sweet Arab love-songs in my ear. Unloose .thy twilight hair about thy head, And listen to. the waters deep and slow, For we are dreaming with the dream ing dead, Dreaming where the flowers of Isis blow. Look not to where those eagles fierce ly fight, Let peace alone, be on this ancient bed, . Unbare thy beauty to the Egypt night, SAnd stay with-me till Egypt's dawn is red. Then leave me when the bird of night has flown, - And touch my lips before the night Smoon sinks. I'll. ponder by these pyramids o...

Few Applications by Returned Sol diers for City's Thanks Certificates. -All Richmond Men Are Asked to Send in Names. Though the Richmond Council de cided that all returned soldiers who had volunteered when residing in Richmond should receive a handsome and large-sized certificate, suitable for framing, conveying the thanks of the city, there have recently been few inquiries for them. It seems that the certificates have been quite for gotten. Mr. C. C. Blazey, the town clerk, has not had a single request from a Richmond returned soldier for three months, and since the begin ning of the year only five certificates have been applied for.

Mr. Cramer shot a piercing glance at her, and she nodded slight ly. "Very good, my dear. My busi ness with Kinnell won't take long, and' you can come up as soon as he goes."
