FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Scrutator." Richmond's Fifty Fifty Game Was a Rare Clinker from the Foot bail Furnace. "The finest and most exciting match of the season" was the general verdict of the crowd. as they trooped away from the clash that doesn't count-to either side. The Punt-road ground was the scene of close and exciting games in the days before Bill went mad, but it is hard to recall one in which the spectators were kept keyed up to such a high pitch as they were in the last-minute stages of Saturday's match. All the good points of the 'hall game such as high marking, long kicking, clever and tricky passing and hard and determined ruck work were in evi dence, but to the credit of both teams, though hard bumps were given and taken, it was fair from first whistle to last bell. The Yellow and Elacks opened in fine style, and Herbert, marking high above the heads of his opponents, got the first "sixer." Shortly afterwards, Fehring, the Burnley boy, showed the MIagpies that Dicky Lee ...

Why.She Was Late. Mrs. Darley: You are so late. You should have been here two hours ago. I got tired waiting for you. Mrs. McBride: I'm very sorry, dear, but I came as soon as ever I could.

With Greatest Revenue in Richmond's History, Local Council Will Show Huge Deficit—Likely to be £4000 Behind on Next September 30. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
With Greatest Revenue in Richmond's History, Local Council Will Show Huge Deficit-Likely to be £4000 Behind on Next September 30. Richmond Council is rolling down a rocky road. According to the report of the finance commitee, the council on June 9 had a debit balance of £5,765, whereas a day later to a simi lar date last year there was a credit of £4,638. A formidable list of ac counts was recommended for pay ment, and these reached to a further outgoing of £4436. Naturally the council, with already a large over draft.at the bank, d:d not wish to un necessarily add to the interest bill, and the accounts of some of the big gest creditors-the Metropolitan Gas Co.'s bill for £800 is a notable in stance-were accordingly kept back until the paying in of rates by June 10 would put the council in a better position to meet its financial obliga ticns. The work of writing up the rate books is not, however, so far ad vanced on this occasion as has been the case in other years. By the time the ...

No Tenders for Council's Horse Feed Supply—Claim for Distribution of Order to Other Ratepayers Ignored. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
No Tenders for Council's Horse Feed Supply-Claim for Distribution of Order to Other Ratepayers Ignored. There was a flare-up at the council meeting on Monday night. Included in the accounts recommended for pay ment by the finance committee was one to P. Raftis, hay and corn mer chant, for £64. "Just a minute," said Cr. Burgess, rising, "this thing is going on and it's got to end some time. Every month we see accounts down to the same man, and it is a matter of £1000 a year. I want to know why it is that only one man gets the order for the council's feed. I believe there are many other produce merchants in Richmond who could supply the coun cil's requirements, and they, too, should have their turn." "Perhaps yourself, for instance," suggested Cr. Bell. "No," replied Cr. Burgess, "you know very well that as a councillor I am ineligible to serve or contract with the council. I am not speaking for myself but for others. It is a big enough matter if a fairer distribution of the order can...

MEN WHO HAVE REFUSED PEERAGES. Lord Melbourne Refused the Garter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
MEN..WHQ HAVE REF-USED PEE RAGES. Lord Melbourne Refused the Garter. On his resignation, Mr. 'Ascquith is said to have refused a peerage. In doing so; the late Prime *Minister was only following the example of osveral other famous men whld have refused to accept hondrs- and) dedora tions. Gladstone is, of course, the most notable instance of modern times. Thomas Carlyle refused the G.C.B. with his usual irreverence,: re marking that if he accepted people :,ould inevitably describe it as the Grand Cap and Bells. Of Fox the story is told that, 'on someone bring ing him word that the King :was anx ious to make him a peer, he. remark ed, despairingly, "Great heavens! Has it come to that?" One of the most interesting of re fusals was that .which camne from Lord Melbourne when Queen Victoria offered him the Garter, one of the most distinguished' .'orders in the power of the British Sovereign to confer. Melbourne was, of course, Queen Vidtoria's first Prime Minister, when the Queen was qui...
Books and their Writers [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 23 June 1917
Books and their Writers popular book a few years ago was "Emmy Lou," by George Madden. Martin (in reality Mrs. Mar tin); which told the childhood experi ences of that delightful child Emmy Lou. Now the authoress has given us a second book about-her which she calls "Emmy Lou's Road to Grace," being a.little pilgrim's progress. The second- book is every bit as good as the first,- perhaps even better, and so those readers who enjoyed the first will find delight in the second. Emmy Lou, let it be said at once, is not one of those painfully .good children we sometimes read- about but-thank goodness!--never see nowadays. Nor 'is she - an obtrusively bad little girl, for such are always plagues, inside or outside a book. Emmy Lou, indeed, is just an ordinary little girl, and this book concerns itself with the ordin ary incidents of a respectable, some what religious-minded, Low-Church Anglican family in an American town, the members of which are, with the exception of Emmy Lou, who is an a...
