A Jonah Story. A good story in Field-Marshall Sir Evelyn Wood's new book, "Winnowed Memories," is told of a man, then over eighty years of age, whose guest the writer once was, and who held rather strict views on religion. At dinner on the first night of his (Sir Evelyn's) stay, his host called out from the end of a table, seating twenty-four guests: "Colonel Wood, do you believe that Jonah was three lays and three nights in the whale's belly?" I remarked, "How very uncomfort able for the whale!" to which he re nlied, "Will you tell me, sir, do you believe it or not?" I asked, "Please say how the whale's digestion went on," and he said angrily, "I asked you a plain ques tion. Do you or do you not believe it?" and I answered cheerily, "No." To which he rejoined, "Then you will leave my house to-morrow morning." The ladies retired, and as I opened the door for my hostess, whom I had taken into dinner, she observed, "Oh, I do hope you are not going!" "I am not thinking of it," I rejoin...

Neighboring Suburbs Decline to Assist in Feeding Richmond Destructor—Barkly Street Furnace Burns on Local Rubbish Only. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

Neighboring Suburbs Decline to Assist in Feeding Richmond Destructor Earkly Street Furnace Burns on Local Rubbish Only. The garbage from Richmond streets, houses and factories is not sufficient to keep the municipal destructor at full capacity. Accordingly the local council made an offer to Hawthorn and Collingwood Councils to send por tion of their rubbish to the Barkly street building. Collingwood Council, however, has declared that it sees no advantages to that city in carting its rubbish such a long distance when it can be more conveniently disposed of, and Hawthorn.Council has replied that all the-garbage from that district is required for filling up low-lying land.

Collingwood Teetotal J.P. Criticises Members of Parliament — Facts Against Him in Richmond. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

Collingwood Teetotal J.P. Criticises Members. of Parliament - Facts Against Him in Richmond. Proposing the toast of "Parliament" at a celebration of Good Templars on the 25th ult., Mr. C. Bergland, J.P., expressed regret that so few members of Parliament followed the King bJ refraining from strong drink or in making a real endeavor to restrict the "enemy." The esteemed' correspon dent who supplies our report of the gathering remarks: "As no members of Parliament were present, tne weight of Brother Bergland's remarks could not be felt." Ahem! Brother Bergland lives in Collingwood--and has entered the wrong shop. All of the Richmond Parliamentary repre sentatives are teetotallers, or practic ally so, and one of them only recently had his re-election challenged becaude of his straight-out action on the early closing question. And only this week eight Richmond hotels have received orders to quit-by Act of. Parliament. This was the 44th celebration of the Richmond lodge of Good Templars....

(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

(To the Editor.) Sir,--The financial drift of the Rich mond Council while deplorable cannot come as a surprise to ratepayers. What else could be expected? Individ uals with no qualification for the posi tion save a gift o' the gab and a cold steel cheek that allows them to grab honors that better men deserve but never ask have been permitted to domineer over their more modest fel lows and, I fear, with dire results for the democratic movement. The sooner Labor gets rid of these self seekers the better it will be for La ,bor. We have seen the harm that the Brookfields and others of that ilk have done to Labor in the Federal sphere, and we need not go so far afield to scent the trouble that is brewing here. You, sir, have been sarcastic over the council stables, but, getting straight to the point, it is up to Labor in Richmond to clean up its own stables-the smell is getting worse.-Yours, etc., "AT THE CROSS ROADS."

Twele Richmond Hotels to Close at Year's End—And There Will Still Be 56 With Doors Open. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 7 July 1917

Twelve Richmond Hotels to Close at Year's End-And There Will Still Be 56 With Doors Open. After considering the evidence of those interested, with special reports from police and officials and their own examination of the places, the mem bers of the Licenses Reduction Board have decided that 12 Richmond hotels shall close at the end of the year. It is the opinion of the Board that there are at present too many hotels in Richmond. and the ones named are considered unnecessary. In nearly every instance the decision was ex pected, but there was some doubt in regard to two hotels on Bridge-road. The owner and licensee of a remain ing property probably considers him self fortunate. The hotels to go are: Central Richmond District.-Build ers' Arms, Rowena-parade; Council, Bridge-road; Surrey, Lennox-street; Templemore, Charlotte-street. North Richmond District.-Brian Boru, Somerset-street; Duke of Buck ingham, Buckingham-street; Royal Sailor, Lennox-street; Yarraberg, Crown-street. South R...

The bridegroom is a 'doctor at a North Shore hospital, and the son of a church dignitary, and he. has".to marry .a nurse-the usual' sort of thing.

Germans Can Pay. INDEMNITY OF £750,000,000 A YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917

Germans Can Pay. INDEMNITY OF £750,000,000 A YEAR. The "Matin" publishes an article by MI. de Verneuil, the well-known financial expert, demonstrating that Germany will be in a position to pay the penalty of her misdeeds. He analyses a brochure published by Dr. Helfferich, in which' it was as serted that Germany was saving £500,000,000 a year, and he main tains that, by adding to this sum the military expenses of Germany, the tax on coal, and the revenue fnoth coming from increased taxation from the raising of railway rates and from Customs duties on tobacco, beer and alcohol, Germany could pay out to the Allies more than £750,000,000 a year. "It is a mistake," he declares, "to suppose that Germaliy will be com pletely exhausted at the moment when she will sue for peace. She vTll be-in a position to resume her activi ties on ah enormous- scloe :mrne diately the war is over."
