THE BILLIARD BALL TRICK. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
THE BILLIARD BALL TRICK. Not so very long ago an American got into- an argument with a friend over the delicate question of whether or not he could get a billiard ball into his mouth. Ten shillings was wager ed that he couldn't. He immediately proceeded to accomplish the astound ing feat, not without some straining and jaw-stretching. When, however. ie attempted to r'move the billiard Dall he found that it was apparently in his mouth to stay. Almost over come with poignant anguish, he has tily repaired to a doctor's surgery. The doctor removed the ball-and charged him 10/-. This incident is not as unusual as it sounds. On every side of us are persons who are jamming -billiard balls into their mouths without count ing the cost of getting them out. Some times the billiard-ball is disguised as something else. For example, there are many men buying automobiles without stopping to think how much it is going to cost them .for gasoline, tyres, repairs, depreciation and what not. There are ...
THE FISHERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
THE FISHERMAN. The tide cam?- in and the ripples ran Over the rocks with a splash -of spray, And what was he catching, the fisher man;, Fishing. alone at the. break of day? Fish to barter and fish to fry Crimson-sided and. silver of fin;. And all the time, 'neath the rose-lit sky, The rose-lit ripples came racing in. The: seas were sweet with the dawn tide's grace, The skies were fair as the heart could -wish; And bright was the glow on the fisher man'§ rface- But, O for the, pain of thiewounded fish! Pain from pleasure and pleasure from. pain; . Each fromn each as the day goes by. This is the note of an old refrain,; This is' the dirge that the Ages sigh. Fisherman!.: Fiherman, life is. fine, And fine the:light on the plume-soft spray! Yet Fate, the fisherman, baits his line ,. And you are the fish that he'll catcn some day! Roderic Quinn in Sydney "Bystander" I object with all the force possible to a pen with a hair in it, bad ink, and scratchy paper to the New Zealand reporter. N...

An llnnocent Adventuress By CHARLES PROCTOR. Author of "The Dice of God," "What Shall It Profit a Man?" "At Dead of Night," etc., etc. Published by Special Arrangement. (Copyright.) CHAPTER XI. Phyllis Makes a Promise. Phyllis reached home feeling ex hausted and on the verge of hyster ics. The experience of the afternoon had shaken her badly, and she was relieved to find that Mr. and Mrs. Cramer were out, as she kinew they would hardly fail to guess that some thing was seriously amiss, and would ask questions which she was not pre pared to answer. She wanted to re cover her self-possession and decide how to act before facing the Cram ers, and she went up at once to her own room to think. After considerable difficulty, she had managed to get rid of Mr. Crane by giving him two sovereigns she had in her purse and promising to meet him on the morrow; but she had no intention of falling in with the black mailer's suggestion and raising money on jewellery. "I think I must be the most wret...

THE VOICE THAT BREATHED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
THE VOICE THAT BREATHED. He was the foreign chef of a big Sydney hotel,. and .his 'salads were dreams of delight. They had a flavor of garlic-not a coarse taste which lingered in the mouth for 24 hours, bit 'a mere zephyr, an elusive hint of the vegetable of frightfulness. One regular customer .was so enchanted by the salad that he approached Al phonse. The.chef would not part with his .secret:: But two pounds and a solemn 'promise. that the mystery would not be' divulged to rival' artists opened his-mouth. "I take ze lettuce," he began "And rub" the garlic on it," cried the. customer. . "Mais non! Zat would be too bru tal. I raise him-to my lips. I have chewed some garlic. Behold, I blow a few moments upon him. It is ze secret of my 'art. You shall not publish 'im abroad, m'sieu." M'sieu did not. But he never ate the -garlic salad again, and used to smile grimly when his friends order -ed it. He alwvays reckoned the lesson worth £ 2.-Sydney "Sun." Call a girl a.chick, 'and she smil...

FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Scrutator." Off The saucer Richmond's cup spills over, And the aspect is not cheerful for Yellow and Black supporters. A wag's jump is to suggest, "In deed they are a home service" team." On Saturday against South they were stoushed again. The game was as lifeless as the I.W.W. seems to be at present. Space is too valuable these times to waste in describing a game in which neither side played anything like good foot ball. The Yellow and Blacks started well, Keggin getting the first goal a few minutes after the start, but for the remainder of the term they were not in the race. South finished the quar ter with a lead of 16 points. The second quarter was the only interesting one of the four. Rich mond, playing in something like their true form, kept South moving all the time and reduced their lead to four points. Third quarter was a blank as far as Richmond was concerned. IJot once did they trouble the goal umpire to wave even a single flag. So he, at least, earne...
TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. Over The Jumps There Are Many Tumbles, And sometimes on the flat as well. Pat Kelly set the ball rolling on Saturday by tumbling into a drain after a horse he had been riding broke a blood vessel and collapsed. The majority of the punters who tumbled Into Caulfield finished up in the mire, and if they did not break any blood vessels it was only because that was about all they had left. There are various kinds of tumbles. You have to be able to tumble to a good many things to make a success of the race-game-and tumble quick and lively, too. Over in Sydney the bookies are tumbling to it that the tote is going to live down the hog-wash and the mix ups of its first few days. To compete with it the bookies, little and big, even the Famous Four, have gener ally adopted the new concession sys tem of betting. They lay a straight should run second they return you the amount of your stake. But the tote does even better than that-sometimes. At the Kensington pony meeing last Sat...

Those Who Are Not For Us Are Against Us—Foreigners and Alleged Australians Who Will Not Support Patriotic Funds. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 30 June 1917
Those Who Are Not For Us Are Against Us-Foreigners and Alleged Australians Who Will Not Support Patriotic Funds. This paper has ever been averse to voicing an unkind word against any person, no matter how richly deserved, if it were at all possible to stand by and remain silent. We have always believed that there is a whole heap of truth behind a story that Cyril Maude referred to in a recent inter view. It related to a girl on a ferry steamer. Another girl had referred to somebody else as a boor. The first girl replied that she "rather liked him." "I believe you like everybody." replied the second girl. "Yes," said the first girl, "I believe I do; there are such a lot of nice people in the world, and those that are not nice are not worth worrying or speaking about." There are some people in this town. however, who are not nice, and whom it is not nice to talk or write about, but in the public interest it is our job to do it. These people are in business. in this city and to this ci...

FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Scrutator." Richmond's Only win This may-not-finish season Was against Geelong on the Punt road saucer. But the Yellow and Blacks could never shake off the train cramp in last Saturday's game on the Corio soup-plate. Richmond were in the soup, and well in the soup, all the game. Perhaps Richmond have gone off; perhaps G.eelong have improved. Anyhow, they have 'got up third on the premiership list, and look to be a possibility in the "four." And that being so-well, didn't they do their best for Richmond last year? It's a long, long time since the diag onals, as their old colors used to be, hit the top of the premiership tree; but there are more things unlikely than the war ending this year. Guides, friends and philosophers of the Geelong-eese consider that they only need to shine up their goal getting ability to see themselves as cocks of the walk in all the reflected -but, no, the old glory has gone. The goal kicking practice began at the expense, if not with th...

Men at Pumping Station Complain of Alleged Unnecessary Dangers Richmond Council Urges Board to Better Conditions. Employes at the Spotswood sewer age pumping station consider that they are exposed to unnecessary dan .ers. An effort to stir the Board of 'Works to action failed, and the em ployes are now circularising the con stituent municipal councils urging them to force the board to provide greater protection fdr workers against sewer gas and other dangers. It is declared that several avoidable mishaps have occurred whereby men have sustained injury. . Richmond Council has assured the men that they have the council's full sympathy and that extra expenditure by the board in the direction indicated will have hearty support. Lawyer: You say you made an ex amination of'the premises. What did you find?" Witness: Oh, nothing of conse auence-a 'beggarly account of empty boxes,' as Shakespeare says. Lawyer: Never mind what Shake speare said.. He will be. summoned .later on. and able to sp...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917
Ladies' Letter. One hundred and fifty pounds rais ed by' a gift evening organised by one woman is not bad, is it? Yet this is what Mrs. Yelland made by her American gift evening on Satur day-you know, the "bring a gift and buy a gift" plan. It meant an awful lot of work; no one realises how much until they have gone through it. But such a success, especially when all the guests seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed themselves, brings its own compensation. Have you heard of the latest in lingerie? Well, it's pyjamas made of net-yes, net. Not the green net used for catching butterflies, but much finer, in pale pink or white, in which to catch-I nearly wrote it so will refrain and say cold. They are trimmed with pink bows-but in the circumstances what beaux would not turn pink. Florence Young has become a motorist, and may be seen any day driving her car through the city.
