The Hospitality of France. A MEMORY THAT WILL LIVE FOR EVER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917
The Hospitality of France. A MEMORY THAT WILL LIVE FOR EVER. ."Would you like to visit France again after the war?" That is a question the English soldier is some times asked. Those who have had experiences like mine will answer "Yes;, :When I do go, I may omit the battle front from my itinerary; but I `shall certainly revisit some or the 'villages where we were the guests of the French peasants, for I have. many -friends there. Our troops are.' 'frequently moved from part to part, and so the in habitants of the war area constantly have new soldiers taking up their temporary, lodging in their farms and coqttages. Officially, the billeting or these: soldiers is a purely business arrangement, but the courtesy of the French makes it more than that. We found it so, and from the way in which .they liked to. speak of those who had preceded us, I could see that our experience was the same as theirs.' Often it happened that our host found the official demands upon him too few to show adequa...

Charlie Chaplin Coming. A TRIP TO AUSTRALIA. MAMMOTH FORTUNES OF FILM STARS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917
Charlie Chaplin Coming. A TRIP TO AUSTRALIA. MAMMOTH FORTUNES OF FILM STARS. By W. Barrington -Miller. (Managing Director of Greater Williams Picture Theatres). In all seriousness, let me intro duce to you-Charlie Chaplin! Not the shadow that has trailed its baggy pants over the screen of every mo tion picture theatre in the world, but the Mr. Chaplin who, at 28, is earning more money than the President of the United States - not the clowning genius that the world knows, but the bright young man whose college-boy aspect can hardly be reconciled with that battered derby and queer mous tache. I had the honor of being Mr. Chap lin's guest in Los Angeles for ten days, and, under his guidance, met many of the principal stars in film dom, among whom were Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, "Fanny Ward, Theda Bara, and William S. Hart, but of all the picture actors there none impressed me more as men than Chaplin and Hart. Two more different types it would be diffi cult to imagine. Chaplin i...

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917
Ladies' Letter. Before I forget it. Muriel Starr, of the sighs, the cigarettes and the ab sinthe-will we ever forget her Ma dame X?-has got right on. to the top rung in America. In big white lights her name is blazoned around Chicago, the vehicle for her latest success be ing a Hawaiian play labelled "The Bird of Paradise." Muriel could go on "starring" in the States indefinite ly but the gifted and daring young woman of "Within the Law" fame has not forgotten the friends of many hap py days and nights here, and she is on the list of J. C. Williamson attractions here in the near future. That old gag, "What to do with our girls? Marry them to our "boys," could be put into modern dress with. "What to do with our returned sol diers? Marry them to our rich girls." This has already been done in several instances, including that of a blind soldier (Frank Downes), who married Miss White, of Singleton. Capt. Lind say Brown, who, as I wrote last week, annexed Marjorie Williamson and her subs...
WAR LEADERS' AUTOGRAPHS. To Help Disabled Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917
WAR LEADERS' AUTOGRAPHS. To Help Disabled Soldiers. At least £50,000, and as much more as possible, for the benefit of perman ently disabled Australian soldiers, is the aim of the scheme for the dis posal of the unique Australian flag now in the possession of MIr.

Birdwood, Admiral Sir John Jellicoe, Admiral Sir David Beatty, Marshall Joffre, the late Lord Kitchener, Mr. Lloyd George, Mr. Hughes, Mr. Bonar Law. Mr. Balfour and Lord Derby.

The approval of the...

OPEN COLUMN. CYCLISTS FORCED TO FORBIDDEN PATHS. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 July 1917
OPEN COLUMN. CYCLISTS FORCED TO FORBIDDEN PATHS. (To the Editor.) Sir,--Lest silence be interprets d as contentment, I would like through your paper to hold up to criticism the body supposed to control our public roads. The Richmond Court was engaged on Monday morning (9th inst) in fin ing a dozen cyclists 10/- each for riding on a strip of footpath at th.: end of Chestnut-street. The condition of the road at the time they were caught was such that many horse drawn vehicles required double teams to pull them through. For cyclists the road was out of all question. The mud in the shallowest part was at least eix inches deep, and in the deeper places about a foot. The southern end of Church-street, immediately adjoining the bridge, is also in a disgraceful condition. Broken and bent axles are the result. Motor bikes using it are shaken to pieces, and horses stumble over its uneven ness. Thus some of our noble councillors force upon road users the expense of repeated repairs, while othe...

Record of Yarra Borderers in the War Unsurpassed by Any Other Corps In Australia. New cadets to the number of 171 were passed into the militia ranks of the Yarra Borderers on Thursday night at the Gipps-street (Richmond) Drill Hall. There was not the usual formal ceremony; but Colonel Crouch the commanding officer, addressed the new militiamen, and stated that al- though the corps had a separate exis- tence under universal training of only five years, it had the records of the Richmond Rifles; the 2nd Victor- ian Regiment and the 6th A.I.R. be hind it. To the present war it had sent 52 officers (of whom 44 received their first commission from its ranks) and 508 N.C.O.'s and men.
