The SEED of EMPIRE Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., London & Melb. CHAPTER XLVIII. Neuve Chapelle. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
The SEED of EMPIRE By FRED M. WHITE, Author of "The Day," "The Crimson Blind," "The Law of the Land," "The Corner House," etc. Published by Arrangement with Ward, Lock & Co., London & Melb. CHAPTER XLVIII. Neuve Chapelle. The short days and long nights dragged on in the trenches; the heavy rains had poured down, flood ing the whole of the dreary country far and wide, and yet the British were holding their lines with a dog ged tenacity as marvellous in its way as~ their more brilliant feats of arms. In all the work the British army has done in the course of its long career there has really been nothing greater than that dogged pa tience turned against the German front during all those terrible months before Ypres. It was different from anything that Tommy had ever done before. Hitherto he had fought to conquer; he had learnt how to fall back doggedly when disaster threat ened; but to sit quietly down month after month, up to his. knees in water, frost-bitten and starv...
From Various Sources [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
From Various Sources A soldier writing to a Bega, N.S.W., paper, from London, says: "If I bring back all the girls that I promised I will land in Sydney like Solomon in all his glory." He was a str'ag, healthy-looking recruit from up Masterton way. He was paraded before the doctor and was being put through- the usual test, when all at once a shoulder went wrong and would not work. "What's wrong with the shoulder?" asked the medical man. "Oh, it's very crook," said the recruit. "Let's have a look at it," said the doctor. After examin ing it he said: "IMy word, young man, you are suffering from a very bad complaint-a very bad one-but, you know, we have a permanent cure for it. We'll put you into camp and give you some physical drill. You are suf fering from what they call a very tired feeling."-N.Z. "Observer." He: "It makes me a better man every time I kiss you, darling." She: "Oh, Harold, how good you must be!" "I like simplicity in dress," He said, "and hate to see . A woman galliv...

Taken at His Word. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Taken at His Word. An old Scotch minister took it into his head to marry his housekeeper. His precentor being ill on the day the banns were to be proclaimed, the.min ister arranged with his herd-boy to do it. "Now," he said. "you must call out in a loud voice, 'Proclamation of mar riage between the Rev. Mr. Murray, o' this parish, and Jean Lowe, o'. the same.' Ha, ha!" laughed the minister as he concluded, "wha'd ha thocht it?" The Sabbath came around, and the congregation assembled. When the moment arrived the lad, who had duly prepared himself, rose and: called out, "Proclamation of marriage between Rev. Mn. Murray, o' this parish,. and Jean Lowe, o' the same. Ha, ha!"'he laughed (thinking this to be partl of -the proclamation), wha'd ha thocht it!" (Tableau). Not Every-Time. -. . "A man is soon forgotten after he is dead," mused Mrs. Gabb.

Keeping Their End Up BRITISH SOLDIERS IN MESOPOTAMIA. THE WORST PLAGUES IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Keeping Their End Up - BRITISH SOLDIERS IN MESOPOTAMIA. THE WORST PLAGUESIN THE. . WORLD. ;- : Close upon the announcement"that supplies of -comforts have been sent to the British wounded in Mesopo tamia, comes the following letterifromii' a nurse working there. It is writteri for the Australian "Red Cross Re cord," and is a revelation of the-.hard ships our men have to endure, and of the need of every assistance that we can give them in the way of sup plementing the hospital diet. The writer (Agatha Foster) says: The drawback to the climate of Mesopo tamia and the Persian Gulf is that from May to September it is one of the hottest in the world. The im pression given in those months is one of scorching sun, dust storms, and flies. The thermometer will of ten be from 80deg. to 90deg. by night to 120deg. by day, but the air is very dry, and there is generally .a north westerly, breeze. No rain falls from April- to October, but the rains .begin in November, when it turrs quite cold, es...

The Daylight Saving Bill. A LAMENT FROM HENLEY BEACH (S.A). [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
The Daylight SaBving Bill. A LAMENT FROM HENLEY BEACH (S.A). Cupid complains that the new day light saving principle has seriously in terfered with his operations. Eight o'clock is a popular time for couples to keep appointments, but under the present arrangements the sun smiles on Australia in all his glory, and spoony youths and maidens who pre fer the dark have perforce to wait an hour and even longer. This is specially noticeable at the seaside, and some of the comments heard this week were truly pathetic. .(With apologies .to "The Sentimental Bloke."). Oh 'ell, I'm going crook a treat; Say,- ain't the law a nark That makes the daylight 'ang around When usually it's dark! SSome reckon it's a boshter scheme To gain a blanky hour; But Mabel mine is awful riled, And I am goin' sour. Now I am shook on Mabel girl, For we are trackin' square; She is a brown-eyed bit of fluff, Wiith bonzer curly 'air, And every other bloomin' night I meet my little peach, And take 'er to a movey show O...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Ladies' Letter. . Let our girls take heart-there is still some hope. They won't all be left on the shelf-not by a long chalk, if the following.from a- bright yoting Anizac at .present nursing a damaged limb in England is to be beieved. :He has seven sisters, and he writes: "Tell the girls to buck up. There's going to be a rush to Austra lia after the war. We'vebeen putting in good work as emigration agents here and at the front, and every sec ond British soldier-officers and men alike-is burning with curiosity re garding Australia. They all talk of wanting to see the place where the Anzacs were bred; and when peace comes they'll be tumbling over each other to get to Australia. I'll ear mark a few for you, girls." A Gilgandra girl sent a parcel of comforts to the front through the Red Cross Society. Attached to the ar ticles vas a post card photogr'ph of the girl's house, on which was written, "We are proud of ypu all; we think of you, we work for .you, and when you come home we will...
Poor Darcy! NEARLY £10,000 IN TWO YEARS. "BREADWINNING" AT £60 A WEEK. DETAILS OF HIS INCOME. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Poor Darcy I NEARLY £10,000 IN TWO YEARS. "BREADWINNING" AT £60 A .... WEEK. DETAILS OF HIS INCOME. Pity poor Les Darcy! The ex-Australian champion, who sneaked out of Australia, and is now in the United States, has, according to a cable received by Sydney "Sun" a few days ago, told a New York .'Sporting Life" interviewer that he left the Commonwealth because he was the breadwinner ol a large fam ily, who would suffir if he were dis abled or killed at. the war. His case is truly a sad one. For, since June, 1914, he has received from Stadiums Ltd., which controls boxing in Australia, only £9697 6/1. It would not be fair or proper to ask a man who earned over £3000 a year to go to the front and fight for his country. Let the poor devils whose wages do not reach more than a couple of hundreds in the twelve months do that. A £3000 a year man is a breadwinner, whose life and limbs should be safeguarded. Of course, such justification is not always necessary. Although making more than- £30...

Teddie's Ingenuity. Little Teddie's father invariably taises his first bcrn wi!h him when he visits the barber. A Iweek or so back Teddie was watching the. gleam ing -scissors darting among his father's locks. "Daddy," ' he lisped, "may Teddie have tne of your curls?" The barber wiped away a tear with the solitary cleai corner of. the shop-towel. S"Dear little feller," he said. "'Ow touchin'! 'Ow affectionit! Do you want to treasure it?" he.continued, as :i0 fetched. off a wiry bunch. "'Do youiw4 ish tb keeiYiltsJ'that in years to come you may say: 'Be'old a lock of 'air fromm hy dear parint's head'?" "Ndt much!" cried Teddie. "I want it for a new tail for my rocking horse."
Nothing to Smile At. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Nothing to Smile At. A party of commercial men were travelling from London to Glasgow, and one pof them was telling funny stories by the yard. An old Scots man sitting in the corner seat of the compartment apparently took not the slightest notice, and no matter how loud the laughter, 'went on quietly reading the paper. This exasperated the story-teller; jntil at last he said: "I think it would take an inch auger to put a joke into a Scotsman's h'ad." A voice from bhifind' the paper said: '"Ay, mon, but it wid need tae hae"a finer .point than ony o' yer stories, A'm thinkingl" Editor: I'm sorry to hear, parson, that. you 'are" displeased with the church. announcements in our last issue. Parson: Displeased! Read this, sir. "Next Sunday evening the Rev. Mr. Parsons will speak upon the evils of st.ofig drink. The address should be well worth hearing,- as Mr. Parsons is always full of his subject." 'Orator's Wife: Did the people ap il a a d ? ; .: ?'..' .. :- . .Orator (with bitterness):...
The Super-Zeppelins ALL SECRETS KNOWN. DESCRIPTION OF L33. H. W. Wilson in "Daily Mail." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
The Super=Zeppelins A"1A?.L'SECRETS KNOWN. _.- i DESCRIPTION OF L33. i. .W Wilson-in "Daily Mail.'" SAll the secrets of the mysterious super-Zeppelin are now known to the British air services, including the se cret of bringing these huge and deli cate gasbags down. So much I can say after a close in spection -of the super-Zeppelin L33, which on September 23 was forced by our fire to alight in Eastern Essex with all the drawings and patterns that they require. This is the first detailed description of a super-Zep pelin ever published by an ' eye witness. The externals of the airship, her outer fabrics and gas-bags, were de stroyed by fire. But all the essentials remain, all the elaborate contrivances of murder, all the gear for operating the engines, all the tackle for manoeuvring the ship. The skeleton of the monster is not visible until you draw very close to it. it is a strange, spidery affair of deli cate trellis work in silvery metal with no sheen and no tinkle, but a sepulchral...
The Unknown Land ENORMOUS AREAS SUITABLE FOR AGRICULTURAL AND PASTORAL PURPOSES. EXPLORATION OF CENTRAL AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
The Unknown Land ENORMOUS AREAS SUITABLE FOR AGRICULTURAL AND PASTORAL PURPOSES. EXPLORATION OF- CENTRAL AUSTRALIA. . Mr. T. E. Day, who has just re turned from an official visit of ex ploration in Central Australia, has given some opinio'is cn the value and the prospects of our little-known in terior. "Is Central Australia a desert or a paradise?" This question was put to Mr. Day by an interviewer. "The 'truth lies between the two," was his answer. Mr. Day, continuing, said: "My opinion is that Central Australit is destined to become one of the best meat and wool producing districts of SAustralia, and, while portions of this enormous area are less suitable for agricultural or pastoral purposes, these are known to be rich in miner als. Immense stretches that have never been tested have been pro nounced by experts to possess most promising indications. Opinions have often differed respecting much of the comparatively unknown land by ex plorers and travellers, as their im pressions we...
TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. "There are some things which are fair-dinkum." It was up at lKilmore races on Wed inesday. A lot of things had happened which the crowd declared were not fair-din ui m. So when a chap stood up in the st:nmdl and made. the assertion that is qioted at the top of this column it fairly took the crowd's breath away. "Something fair-dinkum." After all that which the race folk have been r;: d'ng about, and on top of what they t,;. - for themselves on this occasion, it was something novel. They gather vrcdl around the speaker. "Yes, boys," I,. said, "what I am going to tell you about is fair dinkum-there is a war going on-and your help is needed. Tihat's fair-dinkum." The crowd was surprised-we can hardly say shocked, but they didn't (iispute the speaker's statement. He was a good speaker, too, and he had a lot of other interesting things to say. I;ut somebody sang out "Even money on the field"-and the crowd melted away. The war is too "fair-dlnkum" for many. Kilnore was alwa...
Soldier's Heart VARIOUS CAUSES. SHOCK, STRAIN OR INFECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Soldier's Heart VARIOUS CAUSES. SHOCK, STRAIN OR INFECTION. SWhy do soldiers suffer so much from weak hearts? The phenomenon has been particularly noticeable dur ing the present war, and a good deal about it has been printed in the medi cal journals. The doctors do not agree on the cause. Sir James Barr, in an article contributed to "Ameri can Medicine," states his belief that it is due to over-development of the thyroid gland. Other authorities re gard its cause as strain of the heart muscle. Sir James Mackenzie and Di. Robert D. Rudolf, a Canadian military surgeon, believe it to be due to general instability of the circula tion, caused by neurasthenia. All agree that the modern methods of warfare are responsible for it. Dr. Rudolf gives his views in "The Cana dian Medical Association Journal" (September), and they are epitomised in an editorial appearing in "The Medical Record" (New York, October 28). We read: "Rudolf points out that soldier's heart, as witnessed at the French fro...

QUALIFICATIONS OF A LABOR CANDIDATE. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Allow me to tell MIr. Sheehan that my memory playeth me no tricks -and I know him not. For six or seven years I have been closely con nected with members of the Rural Workers' Union-right up to its ab sorption by the A.W.U.-and I never heard the name of J. MI. Sheehan in connection with it. As to his being a councillor of the V.R.U., well, if that and the recommendation from your self to make a second attempt on his political life by opposing Mr. Mackin non or Sir Alexander Peacock are his only recommendations to represent Richmond in Parliament, I am afraid his cake is dough. Yours, etc., "AULD TAM."
