What a Roar If It Did Go Off—Rate Money Held Up at Town Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

What a Roar If It Did Go Off-Rate Money Held Up at Town Hall. While bold bad burglars were roam ing the city and suburbs at night, laughing at the police and blowing safes to pieces, they missed a big haul at Richmond. It appears that a sum which reached in cash and cheques to thousands of pounds was stored at the town hall. Golly. Fred Coles, the hall-keeper, could be ex cused if he did not sleep at nights for thinking of it. What a relief it must have been for him to wake up to break fast in bed, perhaps, and read in the paper of burglars everywhere-except the town hall. It seems that the sys tem of writing up the rate book is such that the banking of 'the money is delayed, and on this occasion the! delay was longer than usual. When everything is examined, however, the money was probably as safe at the town hall as in a bank-only while it was there the risk was all on the ratepayers. Years ago, it seems, Town Clerk Elazey foresaw that the Americanising of Australia was bound to co...

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. You can't escape fighting by marry ing, a recruiting officer declared. Just what does he mean? "Is your husband much of a pro vider, Malindy?" "He jes' ain't nothin' else, ma'am. He gwine to git some new furniture providin' he gits de money; he gwine to git de money providin' he go to work; he go to work providin' de job suits him. I never see such a pro vidin' man in all mah days."-"San Francisco Chronicle."

Death of Richmond Lady Who Saw Aboriginal Corroborees in Park 70 Years Ago—Bridge Road Was Punt Road and Punt Road Did Not Exist. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

Death of Richmond Lady Who Saw Aboriginal Corroborees in Park 70 Years Ago-Bridge Road Was Punt Road and Punt Road Did Not Exist. Quite one of the very oldest-if not the absolute oldest-residents of Rich mond passed away when Mrs. Eliza beth Adams died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Peat, 18 Gordon street, last Saturday. She lived in one of the first houses built in Rich mond-a two-roomed weatherboard place-on the crest of Church-street hill,- and she could look out through the doors and windows, except where many trees interrupted the view, down to the Yarra on three sides of the scattered settlement, and towards M'elbourne, where the glow of the camp-fires was seen in the sky. A tribe of aboriginals ran wild aid lived in mia mias in Richmond Park. Water rushed along a gully where is now Collins-street. Her reminiscences were in many ways full of interest. After her marriage she lived in Cre morne-street, and three of her eight children (including Mrs. Seabourne, Gordon-str...

STHE GREAT WHITE BIRD. The great white bird of your spirit . tapped at my window sill, Though your body lay in Flanders, un der the shell-swept hill; Anid over the red geraniums and the :breath of the dewy things The pale despair of the moonlight was lifted by healing wings.

THE HITCH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

THE HITCH. A journalist reported that a recent execution' went off without a hitch. Paradoxical as it may appear, a hang ing of twenty or thirty years ago had to be postponed for the want of a hitch, and a journalist was responsible this time, too. He is a well-known journalist to-day, probably the best known in Australia, despite the fact that he has been some years on the retired list, but back in his wild youth he was a reporter on a Sydney daily, and as bitter an opponent of capital punishment as his writings in later days indicated. It fell to his lot to "do" an execution at a country town twenty miles by coach from the nearest= station. When -the pressmen mounted the coach, a nuggety man took his seat on the box beside them. "Do you know who that is?" whisper ed our friend. "No," replied the other. It was Nosey Bob, the famous hang man, and the pet aversion of the democratic journalist. The execution er placed beneath the seat a stout carpet bag, and, guessing what it con tain...

Pretty Rockeries Where Lack of Footpaths May Prove Costly—New Scheme of Asphalt and Drainage Saving at Swan Street East. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

Pretty Rockeries Where Lack of Footpaths May Prove Costly-New Scheme of Asphalt and Drainage Saving at Swan Street East. Pathetically unable to properly maintain the footpaths of the city, Richmond Council is determined to avoid any further liability in this re spect. At the east end of Swan-street, where the electric tram jing-jongs along to Hawthorn, the footpaths have been wiped right out. Ornamental rockeries are now being laid out in their place. It appears the erosion, from the rise of the Richmond Park on one side and the Horticultural Gar dens on the other, is so. great that after rain soil from the cutting is washed into the water channel, and the only alternative to the rockery is a brick retaining wall. As there is solid rock' below two feet of surface soil, and such a wall would be costly, and as the council cannot afford to do anything that is costly, it stood up and voted for the rockery-all except Cr. Strafford. He said he didn'tf see much sense in wiping out the foot...

Crowded Swan Street Tram Traffic Soon to be Relieved—New Car on TRack and Others Waiting for Wheels. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

Crowded Swan Street Tram Traffic Soon to be Relievec--New Car on Track and Others Waiting for Wheels. Returns of the Hawthorn Tram Trust show that the revenue continues to mount ever upward. A total of 660,657 passengers were carried in the mo:nth or June, and the total revenue £4859 5/10-an increase of 115,276 passengers and £789 4/4 in revenue over June last year. The Riversdale extension line had not, of course, then been opened. Fitted with a new pattern air brake known as the "Australian Elec tric," and which is claimed to be superior to even the Westinghouse, the first of the new 15 cars recently' ordered has been placed on the track. Trials with the car proved completely successful. Besides the new brakes, the car is furnished with a more.effec tive destination sign box, and, more important to passengers, there is more room in the "open" portion of the car. Otherwise the new car is a replica of the first bogey cars put on the line. Bodies have been built for the other 14 cars...

The Trench Helmet. SAVES OUR SOLDIERS' LIVES. TRENCHES DO NOT AFFORD SHELTER. (Captain Henry J. Reilly, who was the military, correspondent of the New York "Herald" in France, has, since America joined the Allies, been ap pointed to a command in the U.S. troops. In the following article be de scribes how the steel helmet came to be adopted for the troops in.. the trenches, and the great protection they were to the soldiers. Among 55' cases of head wounds, when the hel ets were first adopted, 42 happened to soldiers without helmets. None of those who wore helmets died, while most of those. without helmets had severe wounds and many of them died. The writer also points out why-most of the 'wounds received nowadays are from low velocity projectiles.) The recent retirement of the Ger mans in Northern France has led to considerable discussion as to whether or not they have found a means of doing away with the present system of long lines of trenches and substi tuting for this warfare in ...

Board, is (says the New York "Morning Telegraph") lock ed up "Somewhere in the United States," probably in his laboratory in New Jersey, determined to invent a method of overcoming the German submarine menace before he comes out. He wvill allow no one 'to disturb him unless connected with the .porkT he has in hand. So biusy is the wizard of Menlo Park that he. has declined a request to .come to Washington to confer• with Secretary of the Navy Daniels regard ing the progress being made with the projected invention. Edison realises that he is getting along in years; that hiis remaining monients of life are gold en, and is unwilling to spare a moment at this time except for work on the submarine problem. He attained his 70th birthday in February. Because of his decision to remain a laboratory hermit until the job is done, Edison would not come to Wash ington for an important secre...

After 21 days in a German sub marine, writes Captain Olsen, sea man on the Norwegian ship, "Stors kog," from Copenhagen, to the New York "World," I have just arrived here with my two companions, Ove Darre and Christian Dick. We were out of Buenos Ayres in the 'crew of the Norwegian ship, "Storskog," bound for Norway with a cargo of corn. Off the Irish coast, whfie in the danger zone, we were stopped by a large U-boat, the com mander of which was brief in his formalities, giving us barely time to leave the ship before sinking her with 27 shots. Picked Up Ship's Crew. The U-boat then took the two life boats of the "Storskog" in tow and headed in toward the coast, but the commander soon caught sight of an English destroyer, which resulted in the lines being hastily cast off, one of the boats, filled with food and extra clothing, drifting away. In this were the second officer and the car penter, with other members of the crew, ...

TRAMS VERSUS RAILWAYS. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Any further comment on the above subject I felt inclined to leave to an abler pen than mine, but after reading the reported evidence of Mr. E. B. Jones, one of the Railway Com n issioners, /before the present Royal Commission (Mr. T. R. Johnston) on Fiday last, '22nd inst., .I feel con strained to ask space to place before your readers :Mr. Jones'. two sides to the question of Trams versus Rail ways. On Friday Mr. Jones said (so it is reported):- "The Commission ers were: aggrieved at the loss of re venue at -Richmond, East Richmond, and Burnley stations because they op posed the adopted route of the Bur-' wood electric tramway at the time of its consideration on the ground that it would entail a loss of. £8000 to £9000 a=-year. The actual loss was £-10,000. The Tramway Bill to come before Parliament contained a clause providing for compensation to the railways for losses incu.rred through competition."

An Innocent Adventuress By CHARLES PRCCTOR. Author of "The Dice of God," "What Shall It Profit a Man?" "At Dead of Night," etc., etc. Published by Special Arrangement. (Copyright.) CHAPTER XIII. The Tempters. "My dear Anna, I am quite aware of the fact that the plan is risky and may fail, but what am I to do?" ex claimed Mr. Cramer, as he paced up and down his study, puffing clouds of smoke from a black cigar. "I am determined to get the plans at all costs; Hampden does not need money, and apparently cannot be moved by threats, so we must rely on the girl." Two days had elapsed since his interview with Hector-two days of anxiety for Hector and Phyllis, who had gone about dreading what the next hour might bring forth. Cramer had taken no action, nor, needless to say, had Lady Elsie carried out her threat, and Hector had heard nothing further from Inspector Hazlitt; but uncertainty, the sense of danger, had told so severely on Hector that his chief at the Admiralty, noting his haggard...

No Need to Oil It. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

No Need to Oil it. During an excessive hot day a wo man was stung by a wasp on the tip of her tongue. Her husband, being at the local hostelry in the evening, on being asked how his "better half" was, mentioned the above fact. Sympathetic friends were, as usual, ready with various remedies, one sug gesting the old-fashioned "blue bag," and another remarking that salad oil was very efficacious. "Ah, yes," remarked the wit, drily, "I dare say salad oil is very good; but my old gal's tongue goes quite fast enough now without being oiled." A very young wife, in a strange hotel, trying to find her husband and thinking he was taking a bath, knock ed on the bathroom door and said: "Honey, are you there?" And a strange masculine voice re plied: "Madam, this is not a beehive; it's a bathroom."
