F O O T B A L L. G. H. BENNETT CLUB. The return match between G. H . Bennett's and Marchant's Clubs came off on Saturday afternoon last in the City Reserve, and caused great interest. Earlier in the sea son Marchant's were vtctorio.us, and as this was Bennett's only defeat of the season they were keenly anxious to turn the tables on their opponents. It was a splendid game. Bennett's led right up to three minutes before time, when March ant's equalised matters, and the match ended in a draw, the scores being-Bennett's 4 goals, 16 be hinds ; Marchant's 6 goals 4 behinds.

CHAPTER IV. THE TRAGEDY AT WATERLOO. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
CHAPTER IV. i THE TRAGEDY AT WATERLOO. Scarcely a second after that omin ous cry of murder the train came to a halt. A sharp fear-he knew not what of-seemed to snatch at Cain's heart. As he stepped from his com partment, pulling his coat-collar close about his ears, he heard a tumult of excited 'voices. He was jostled and pulled roughly by a swiftly-assembled crowd composed of passengers, sta tion employes, guards, and several policemen. All .were shouting at once but out of the general din a few ut terances could be distinguished. "Ah ! There he is." "It's murder, sure enough." j "Arrest him. Don't let him get | away." Curiosity held Cain to the spot, though he knew immediate flight would be the more prudent course. A rush from behind suddenly drove him to the front of the throng, close to a second-class carriage that adjoined the compartment in which he had travelled from Plymouth. The door was open, and he saw a man lying on the floor-a hatless man with cropped hair, with a yello...

THE WAVE FOLK. DID YOU EVER READ A PRETTIER COLUMN THAN THIS? [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
THE WAVE FOLK. 1 DID YOU EVER READ A PRET TIER COLUMN THAN THIS ? Ruby . and gold of the sunset; gleam. of a -glory divine; great, glistening, flat-backed waves running landwards, and he-a smallish, fat, creamy, soft-eyed, long-whiskered' body, lying on his back on a rock, fanning himself with one flipper. His' mother had just been teach ing him to swim that day, for, be it known to you, even baby seals which he was fashioned for water progress only-have to learn to swim,, just as foolishly, helplessly, nervous ly as a child. He had learnt quick ly, and was now formally admitted to the Brotherhood of The Wave Folk, and all the broad Western Ocean was not big enough to hold him that tide. Then up shot his mother-the spray flying in a careless shower-o'-pearl from the gentle head-from out the foot of a wave, a limp, fat floun der in her mouth for him. He seized it with the appalling selfishness of all young creatures, eating quite natu-« rally, as his first so!id food in this world, a...
Silver Wedding [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
Sjlven Wedding A large gathering of friends and relatives assembled at the Australian Hall, Gliurch street, on Monday evening last to celebrate the Silver Wedding of Mr and Mrs T. Stafford of Lord-street. The hall was taste ' fully decorated in silver, and the catering arrangements in the hands of Mr Carmichael were all that could be desired. The guests, sup ported by relatives, occupied the chief table, and made a numerous and happy lookingfamily gathering. Judging' by the number of brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, nieces, cousins, etc., etc., the Clan Stafford bids fair to increase and multiply for ever. The singing of the National Anthem in which the whole assemblage heartily joined, gave a true ring of loyalty to the proceedings, and the clatter of plates and popping of corks, accompanied wich hearty laughter of young and old was abundant evidence that the guests had settled down for a merry time. The viands so tastefully prepared by Caterer Carmichael were BO ap petising that ...
FISH THAT FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
FISH THAT FIGHT. t In the gardens of Singapore it is the custom to stock the ponds with all manner of queer fish-many of them of the fighting variety so dear to Orientals. This species of fish is so combative that it is only necessary to place two of them near each other, like fighting cocks, and perhaps to irri tate them a little, to bring on a lively conflict. They charge each other, with fins erect, at the same time changing col our from the dullest of grey-grsens to brilliant reds and blues. Indeed, con finement in close quarters is not needed to arouse their combative propensities. Even a single fish, seeing himself reflected in a mirror, will dart at his own image; and, irritated all the more by his failure to reach his supposed enemy, will assume the most brilliant hues; seeSng his re flected antagonist do the same, . he will double his efforts to reach him.

NOT TO BE WASTED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
NOT TO BE WASTED. Ib) the soft firelight, even the board house sitting-room looked cosy anl attractive. The warmth and com fort thawed the heart of the "star" boarder. In an expansive moment he turacd to the landlady, who was his only companion in the room. Clasping her hand fondly, he murmured : "Will you be my wife ?" The woman did not start or blush no maidenly coyness shone from her clear, cold eyes, as she replied thoughtfully : "Let me see. You have been here four years. You have never once grumbled at the food, or failed to pay my bill promptly and witho .t question. No, sir I'm sorry, but I cannot marry you. You're too good a boarder to bei put on tha free list."
ASTONISHING THE NATIVES. THE WHITE MAN'S MAGIC. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 15 August 1914
ASTONISHING THE NATIVES. . 4 THE -WHITE MAN'S MAGIC. The Cape to Cairo and other ad venturous railways which are now thrusting their relentless steel tenta cles daily deeper and deeper into re gions where, until a comparatively few years ago, a white man was a rara' avis, are rapidly familiarising the native with the steam engine. It had an appalling effect on King Cetewayo, who was brought to Eng land; at the close of the Zulu war. The never-ceasing flow of London's traffic, and its accompanying roar an i bustle, used to make the poor old monarch quake . with terror, but a steam-engine rush'ing full" tilt into a station on the Underground demoral ised him to such an extent that he incontinently fled from the sulphur ous monster, and nothing would in duce him to return ! He and four Zulu satellites, by the way, are cre dited with having slaughtered and eaten a whole sheep in the drawing room of the ex-potentate's apart ments near Hyde Park. A BID FOR A TOPE. Strange to say, the -whe...
