Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
Ladies' -Letter. Dress in Paris is pretty, dainty and practical in the sense that light col ors are not much used. (says the London "Times"). Even the March. gales and April snowstorms have not kept Fashion altogether at home. She wears furs and big coats. Little dresses are the rage, with their air of the most demure simplicity. They are made of various materials, ac cording to their purposes; in serge and voile they suit many different occupations; in satin and voile, or in crepe de chine, they are for the after noon and evening; for some more special occasion they can be in satin and embroidered net, in tulle and jet, in satin and chantilly, or in some other combination which gives an ef fect of simple richness. But simple frocks are more worn than any other, short, slim, low at the throat, and long in the sleeve. A long coat of last winter will cover them, or a new one of this spring, for the long coat has appeared in- lighter materials, but with much the same cut as be fore. Th...

He suggested that the charge should be withdraw. I Inspector P. Carrucan said that he omlil.l leave it to the bench. Police Magistrate Goldsmith decided that it n " d go on.

Boating to Battle. EXCITING TIMES IN WET PLACES. BOMBS AND BOSCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
Boating to Battle. EXCITING TIMES IN WET PLACES. BOMBS AND BOSCHES. Here and there as the Germans have retreated they have succeeded in flooding• parts of the districts in. which they were pireviously entrench ed. This has led to curious variations in the adventures of the Allied arms. A well-known correspondent writes: Boating to battle is one of the novelties of fighting on this part of the Western front, where the Allied and German lines . are separated by miles of flooded land. Trench raids are almost unheard of here. The only thing approximating them are bomb ing expeditions carried out firbm skiffs, which are paddled skilfully under cover of dairkness to the enemy's lines. "Just at the edge of the water in front of our trench," said. a Belgian officer,. "we have two - little nooks where our two boats lie hidden, and when darkness has come we set- out on patrol. Sometimes with muffled .oars, sometimes with punt poles-for in most places the water is quite Sshallow-we creep towar...

FOOTBALL FLASHES [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
FOOTBALL FLASHES By "Scrutator." Dick-ee Lee Five Hundred and Three And Still Going Strong. .It is a great record to have played in 156 matches and scored 503 goals even though there may have been a few stagers. So far this season Lee has kicked 42 goals, his nearest op ponent being Jimmy Freake, of Fitz roy, with 19. A fair percentage of Lee's goals must have been kicked against Rich mond. In Saturday's game he got six officially recorded, and several others the umpire wouldn't swear to. He hit the post twice. Lee is a fine stamp of the virile athlete, and in private life is one of the most unassuming fellows you would meet if you kept on walking for a week or two. You wouldn't think that, would you, by Dick-ee's field play, but there are tricks in every trade, and Dick-ee's apparent "side' in a game is put on with the same reason as it is applied to a billiard ball-to get the right position, direc tion and result. One thing you can mwear to. and it is that you never saw Lee in all...
