Tommy Cookers. THE SOLDIERS' FRIEND. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917
Tommy Cookers. THE SOLDIERS' FRIEND. When asked "What are Tommy Cookers?" an American lady replied with alliterative terseness: "Tiny tins to heat eats for Tommys' tummies," and the description fits the article. These little heaters are to be issued to every Australian soldier, and their usefulness and convenience are self. evident. They are heaters and cups combined, and when not in use fold into a small and easily carried parcel.
TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. Twenty Thousand. A Fair Sized Win. Such was the Score at the Valley on Saturday. Not by any one individual, but for many-the Repatriation Fund. Now it is being put forward as an argument as to why the gates should remain open. To our minds it only strengthens the argument that the gates should remain shut-against the "prop." clubs. Let Saturday racing go on, as we have all along said, but let it be not for the benefit of a few, but for the many, for the National Cause. To-day it will be the National-the Grand National-and every penny of profit for the National War Funds. And why should it not be the case every Saturday? The "prop." racing has simply got to go, and it is no use playing with the question. And while on the question, will anybody tell us if they have yet seen I how or when or where you go about joining the new Valley and Epsom Clubs. Ha, ha, ha! It's a great joke, truly., If they are the real thing and the general public are eligible for membership, why n...
Council Displays Interest in Local Charitable Societies—Direct Representatives Appointed to Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917
Council Displays Interest in Local Charitable Societies-Direct Repre sentatives Appointed to Committee. For years and years and years and years, as Leonard Nelson used to sing. the committee of the Richmond Lad ies' Benevolent Society have endeav ored to urge our representative citi zens the desirability of their taking an active interest in the working as well as support of the society. On oc casions a special hint has. been con veyed that wives of councillors would be welcome if they would co-operate in the work and management of the society. Save lri cihe or two notable instances, the invitation passed un heeded. It must, therefore, be with some measure of surprise that the society is now informed by the council that it. will only allot the annual grant of £80 on condition that four repre sentatives nominated by the council are allowed on the committee. The Mayor and Cr. J. H. Robinson, with Mrs. Cowen and Mrs. Rogers, were named as the council representatives. We have aught to s...

Richmond Carrying Firm's Social Club.--Wallbridge's Employes Have Enjoyable Dance. Stimulating good fellowship among ,the employes of the firm with their relatives and friends, the Wallbridge Social Club is doing good work.

The employes of this well-known carry ing firm take a keen interest in the welfare of the club, and they have a live committee. Messrs. D. Grace, G. Pearson and D. Egan had chargeI .of arrangements on this occasion, and TLr. A. Stephenson, at the piano, was another factor in the general enjoy-I ment. If oranges are to be peeled, place them in the oven for a few minutes. or pour boiling water over them and let them stand for five minutes.

AN EMOTIONAL CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917
AN EMOTIONAL CRISIS. The music of the band. The people crowding around. The voice of the recruiting sergeant. The decision not to get closer. The congestion of the people. The anger at the chap who stands on your toes. The push up a bit closer. The eagerness to hear the rest of the story. The shivers up the spine. The boys in khaki. The fellows. you used to know. The tightening of the throat. The flag--and Austr'alia. The desire to go away and cry. The weak feeling in the knees. The determination to Do One's Bit. The getting on to the platformi. The cheers of the crowd and the comradeship of men. The glad realisation that Germany is up against it.
IMPOSSIBLE THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917
IMPOSSIBLE THINGS. There are some thing I cannot do; and all of such things I. eschew. I can't stand up and make a talk; my efforts give the crowd a shock. I tried it often in the past, and had the sense to quit at last. When ever I reared up and tried to let some ob servations slide, with folks before me, -rank on rank, my mind - became a shoreless blank. I groaned and gurgl ed for a while, and wore afi idiotic smile, and then my friends, with grief and rage, would come and push me from the stage. The country's full of busy gents who .cannot talk worth thirteen cents. They've bored you often; you'll admit; they lack my sense-they do not quit. I used to think that I could sing; I warbled songs like everything. This fond delusion. long I kept, until I saw that people wept, and tore their gar ments and their hair, when I with mu sic filled the air, and then. I knew I must be wrong, I wasn't built for noble song. And though this knowledge deeply bit, I took my sign in, and I quit. The ...
STEAK AND MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917
STEAK AND MISTAKE. "You have: some beefsteak, .of course:?" queried a man"who had hur riedly entered a butcher's shop. "Yes, sir." "And .beefsteak is good to take the color out of a black eye." "The best thing in the world, sir." "Good! Save two pounds for Riley." "What Riley?" "The Riley who lives in -Blank street. I'm going to black both his' optics. He'll probably call in half ,an hour. Good evening!" Twenty minutes later the same man came back with his coat in rags, his collar gone, his nose damaged, and both eyes puffed up. :"Did you find Riley?" asked the shopman with a twinkle in his eye. "I did, sir, and he has kindly con sented to let me use .the beefsteak." At Mungindi (N.S.W.) there, is an old-age pensioner, in. receipt of ten shillings a week:-. One day he went to the Red Cross and gave 2/6, and said that every week the'reafter he in tended to bring 2/6. This voluntary giving-up of 25 per cent of his income is really better than if he were get ting £1000 a year and gave ...
