WHAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917

WHAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW. There's a picture called "What Every Girl Should Know." There are lots and lots of things That every girl should know Before they get the harp and wings In the place where good girls go. They should know the good from the bad, of course, The knuts from the plaster saints; So they'll never be mixed in a gay divorce Where the co-respondent faints. The bright bo-hoys of this city to-day Are much more swift than slow, But if you won't heed my warning terse, With you, my dears, it's "Good-night, nurse," For I'll tell you all in a vimful verse Things that a girl should know What every girl should know. Whether Penelope, Pearl or Poll (A name that doesn't survive), She should know from the time she drops her doll How many beans make five. She should know that the boys in Sunday-school, Where they teach of sheep and goats, Are breaking a strict religious rule When they pass each other notes. When asked to go for a picnic trip She should very rarely go, For the f...

FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 July 1917

FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Scrutator," Richmond's "Shock" Eighteen The surprise of the season. Not only did they surprise Fitzroy. but also their own supporters, by their run-away win on Saturday. The drastic action of the committee in leaving out some well-known play ers was the subject of much comment amongst the Johnny know-alls. "Fancy leaving out a player like Keggin," said one. "And sending out a team without a second rover," said another. "And leaving out two rovers like Alessio and Don," chipped in a bystander. It was a committeeman who sum- med up the position, and didn't make any mistake in his arithmetic. "We were up against it," he said, "and as the old team did not seem able to win matches, we just decided to give some new players a show. They cannot do much worse than the old crowd, and they may do a lot better." Whurroo, whurroo, and they did. When Captain Maybury led out his "new selection" it was noted that the combination had weight and height and was more powerful than ...

THE PASSING OF PUNCH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917

.THE PASSING OF PUNCH.: Recently came across the following advertisement: "Wanted, a Punch and Judy Show. Write, stating terms, 9655, 'Herald' Office." Is there a Punch and Judy showman left- in the Commonwealth? The late "Professor" Beckford, who died near ly three years ago, was the last and the best-I ever saw. And an in teresting old boy he was, as- your much-travelled man usually is. In his young days "Beck" had been a member of the London Metropolitan Fire Brigade, and was often on the engine that took the Prince of Wales (afterwards King Edward) to big city fires. Then "Beck" came to Australia, nearly every inhabited nook and cor ner of which he toured with his pup pets, which he learnt to manipulate with wonderful skill. It was no ordin ary Punch and Judy show, such as used to be seen in the streets of Lon don, but a much larger and better appointed fit-up, and "Professor" Beckford was much in demand at pic nics, bazaars, and children's parties. In the old days of Paddy's Ma...

THE SEWING CLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917

THE SEWING CLASS. Our Mary was a simple child, Twelve summers only had she seen, Her hair was straight, her manners mild, And quiet and gentle was her mien. She wished to help the soldiers brave, And often asked with earnest grace If she'd be useful if she gave Assistance in a humble place. So Mary joined our sewing class, She threaded needles, ran around, And was most useful, but alas! No more was Mary simple fund. For while the chat was chatting fast, The quiet Mary was forgot, And so she came to hear the last And truest tale-told on the sppt. She knows why Jones and Mrs. Jones Take married holidays always; Of course these ladies throw no stones, Not one of them reproach conveys. But still they talked-and Mary's hair, Which wais so straight-began to curl, And if she is much longer there Her eyelashes will upward twirl. -By "One of the Sewers."

FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917

FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Scrutator." The Old Blues Still too, too solid For the Yellow and Black. Although defeated. Richmond put up a great game and made Carlton go like Old Mungindi for a five points win. And the five points win might eas ily have been a draw. A lofty angle snapshot by Reeves in the last quar ter was considered by many in a good position to judge to have gone through the big sticks, but the goal umpire thought otherwise and only raised a single flag. It caused one enthusiast to remark that Richmond had the world against them when they met Carlton. At times there was some smart. ;nappy combined play by both teams, but, taking the game right through, it was of the rugged and forcible style in which weight and determination were the big factors. This style of play has generally been Carlton's long suit against Rich meond, but this time they were up against a crowd who were not taking it lying down. It was remindful at times of the old Association matches, in which the re...

WHY HE WENT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917

WHY HE WENT. He was clad in his soldierly khaki, By his side was his bayonet blade; lHe, was none of your larrikins larky, But a soldier severe and staid. Not a glance of his eye was shifty, He looked you full in the face; Though winters and summers fifty Had left in his tread their trace. And a lady came by where he guarded. A prison sort of a place. .Where the scallywags all are yarded 'Till the Commandant tries the ` case. She'd a son who in France was fighting Where they're giving the Huns no rest, And the bullets their way are biting To the hearts of the brave and best. "I've. a son in France," said the mother "A stripling handsome and young; Next year I shall send another,. Where the songs of battle are sung. "But you. are as old as their father. And I honor you, sir," she said; "I honor the lie you told them, I honor the grey of your head.

AN AMATEUR ARCHITECT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917

AN AMATEUR ARCHITECT. Long. before MacIntyre's day his college chapel had been said to re senible "a. mass of jaundice combined with a go of fever." From time to time, in the intervals of study, Mac Intyre had glanced at this building and resented it. He resented not only its appearance, but the uses to which it was put. The feelings of antipathy culminated in a determination to add to the general grace of the building by a few original touches of his own. The Twelve Apostles carved in stone took his eye as being a likely theme for decoration. To the roof there fore in jocular mood he climbed by night, intent upon adding to the beauty of the Twelve. To each dis ciple he gave a hat, or as he himself expressed it a halo, thus rectifying a curious omission on the part of the original sculptor. By the time Mac Intyre had done with the apostles they resembled reckless undergraduates. Each sported his club or college col ors as :to the manner born. St. John. who -had worn a beard, wore it...
