FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917

FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Scrutator." Too, Too Solid, The Old True Blues, For the "Boys" from Richmond. It's always a great thing to begin well, and the Carlton chaps are the jokers who know it. They got away early this time, and it was a long and hopeless chase that the Yellow and Blacks put in after them. About as hopeless as Little Billee's chase after the fast-disappearing vol unteer who seems to have reached almost to around the corner and out of sight, but Richmond and Little Billee may both take speed powders before very long, and then-what a wake-up! Meanwhile the. game goes on. Carlton's game was crammed full of dash and judgment, while, youthful as the Yellowbirds are, they all seemed to be suffering from midnight som nambulism, and the principal smile weaver was the little boy on the scor ing-board-and he doesn't live in Rich on. Four straight "sixers" were sig nalled before Richmond "finished starting." They made a bit of a move up then and got one good goal, but other shots ...

Roberts (president) in the chair. In response to an appeal from the Tren tham branch on behalf of the widow and chidren of a deceased member, 10/6 was donated. A syllabus for the forthcoming half-year, catering for the social enjoyment and literary taste of members, was adopted. A lecture on technical education was delivered by Mr. Donald Clark (Inspector of Tech nical Education). In his opening re marks he dealt with several primary products of Australia. He said that, previous to the war, owing to the lack of knowledge in working these pro ducts, great quantities had been sold at a very cheap rate to Germany. He trusted that in the future Australians would realise the value of the primary products of their land, and would ac quire the necessary knowledge and work them to full advantage. He then ...

Jim Morgan Makes Good I. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917

Jini Morgan. Makes Goodi By Winifred Carter. I. Jim Morgan, with a slouch hat pull ed well over his eyes, came down a little drab street in Poplar. The street was not crowded just now. Folks were either at picture palaces or indoors, for a heavy downpour kept all in who were not forced to be out. A woman came along with a shawl tightly pulled over her head, but though she held it firmly, a stray wisp of hair came out and blew into her eyes with a dankness that yexed her. With an almost passionate move ment she thrust it aside, undoing Ihe shawl to do it, and thus giving the man who had slunk into an alley a chance to see her face. "It's Alice!" he muttered. "Alice!" -almost he spoke. Somethiug held him back. Somehow he felt ashamed to now. She had got a bunch of rather dreary-looking violets under her shawl, and these she brought out at she crossed the road. With a quick glance round she pressed her lips to them and then fixed them on a small wooden rack which was suspended on the w...

Books and their Writers [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917

Books and their Writers* book about a missionary with very little religious interest in it is The Trail to the Hearts of Mien," by Abe Cory. It is a story of China chiefly, and in its descriptions af that strange country, at once en lightened and barbaric, it offers an attraction quite apart from mere fic tion. Yet it is by no means a travel book, its human interest is too ab sorbing for that, but in the compara tive novelty of its scenery, the book will make a strong appeal to those who enjoy the more serious kind of story. We do not remember the au thor's name, and quite possibly this is a first novel; certainly its literary style is not very polished and often shows signs of crudeness and also of dofective observation. But so en grossing .is the story and so graphic the scene-painting that minor de fects do not spoil the pleasure of reading so unusual a book. Paul Redmond is a son of an Amer Loan millionaire, and the descendant of ..pioneers who "have gone out to wattle; who have...

A USE FOR OLD NEWSPAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917

A USE FOR OLD NEWSPAPERS. An accumulation of old newspapers may be converted into an excellent fuel for use in stove or fireplace. The papers should be piled into a tub or other water-holding receptacle until it is about one-third full, and the tub then filled to the brim with water. Left thus for two or three days, the papers will become thoroughly soaked. If at first they show an inclination to float, a heavy stone laid on top will weigh them down until the water complete ly covers them. When thoroughly soaked with water, the papers are taken out and squeezed into balls about the size of one's two fists, and thrown on to the ground in the sun to dry. The papers have become so soft and pulpy that a perfectly com pact ball is easily formed. It will dry, if left in the sun long enough, until it is almost as hard as wood. These balls, if made in summer, will consti tute excellent fuel for winter use, and will burn in the fireplace with a beau tiful glow. Moreover, they will burn with ...

LACKING ONE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917

LACKING ONE. Intelligence, Knowledge and Judg. ment were strolling along one day when they came to a young baby sleeping by the roadside. "Here's a chance to do some good," said Intelligence. "That youngster appears to be a splendid specimen of humanity. Suppose we serve him during his lifetime." "All of fis?" asked Judgment. "Why not?" said Knowledge. "By combining we shall be able to pro duce a very superior person. I sec. ond the motion." Some moments later, when the baby rubbed his eyes upon a new world, he found himself equipped with Intelligence, Knowledge, and Judgment. Many years later the three were again out for a stroll. "By the way," said Knowledge, as they came to a, spot at the roadside, "do you remember that long ago w'-e three agreed to serve a certain young. ster?" "Perfectly," said Intelligence. "The curious thing about it all is that, al though he is a perfectly good human being and respected by all, he has never amounted to much-has never a::quircd that supreme d...

"Me and Job." FUTURIST EVANGELISM. BILLY. SUNDAY 'IN NEW YORK. Billy Sunday, the famous Ameri can evangelist, whose bizarre meth od's have for the past three years at tracted great attention and excited considerable criticism, is now con ducting his first campaign in New York. Appended are two of his in itial sermons in that city-sermons which indicate that he has consider ably modified the diction with which he was wont to startle the orthodox in the cities of the wild and woolly West. The subject was on "Compassion," -with, the text from Matthew ix., 36 38:"But when He saw the multitudes He was moved with compassion." Mr. Sunday said: "The curse of the church to-day is putting unconverted persons to work. They have no business to touch the work of God. What business have they to stand up and say: 'I don't like his manners about me? If God likes it, what business is it to- them? "The great question nowadays is why- men don't go to church. It isn't because the church has failed. If ...

Looking Ahead. ALLIES ARRANGING FOR FIGHT TO A FINISH. London. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917

-Looking Aheid. ALLIES ARRANGING FOR FIGHT TO A FINISH. London. If this war extends into 1918, or possibly even ihto 1919, as many in formd people believe it may, the Al lies do not intend to permit that it shall peter out towards the end. Rather, they are making their ar rangements to conduct war's opera tions on a scale of ever-increasing magnitude. The plans for the mobili sation of the resources of the whole world against the Central Powers are being formulated under the general guidance of the new British Admin istration and the Allied Governments on a scale so tremendous as to be al most unbelievable. i *The British Army estimates recent ly announced were based on the pur pose to maintain an army of 5,000,000 men. The navy now embraces about half a million men, and some ambig uity of phrases has left it a little un certain whether the navy force is in cluded in the figure of 5,000,000. ?Vhether it is or not, the country was astonished to learn what a vast force the quiet, secr...

St. Stephen's Harriers Enjoy Walking Tour at Ferntree Gully. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917

St. Stephen's Harriers Enjoy Walking Tour at Ferntree Gully. In perfect weather the St. Stephen's walking trip at Ferntree Gully proved successful on Saturday, and those who took part are wanting to know when the next trip takes place. On arrival at the "Gully," the ladies of the party were left to their own devices whilst the tourists made a rapid ascent of the 854 steps leading to the recently rebuilt Government look-out, where a magnificent panoramic view was ob tained. Bob Holt had a camera on his back, but was first up, and, with the other members of the party, can thoroughly recommend the climb to anyone desirous of reducing weight. A record was established in the de scent, for, although the steps were very muddy after the heavy rain of the previous week, the "walk" devel oped into a race, and only ten minu utes were occupied by the first arrival in getting to the township, where re freshments were served. This afternoon a combined run of the various clubs will be held at Brig...

RE!NFORCED CONCRETE SHIPS. A Confident Designer. Various shipbuilding proposals are now in the air, and while some are advocating a return to the old wooden types of ocean-going ships, an innova tion is being made in some European countries, such as Norway, for the substitution of reinforced concrete in their construction, and the matter has been laid -before the Imperial au thorities on behalf of an Australian film. Messrs. Stone and Siddleley have also placed definite proposals be fore the Prime Minister to construct a 4000 ton concrete vessel within seven months, and, after that, to con struct similar vessels at the rate of one a week, if the plan were sufficient ly developed, and Mr. E. G. Stone says that his firm is ready to back his in vention by a guarantee of £10,000. Mr. Stone sees no obstacles in the way of carrying out his design. All the material is available in Australia, and he says there will be no difficulty in securing labor. Messrs. Thompson and Co. Pty. Ltd., of C...
