Real Chance for River Beautification.—Tree Planting Along Yarra Bank at South Richmond.—With Small Grant from Council, Start May Be Made Next Week. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
Real Chance for River Beautifica tion.-Tree Planting Along Yarra Bank at South Richmond.-With Small Grant from Council, Start May Be Made Next Week. With a view to stimulating a movement hay ng nor its oL _.- 'ee planting on the banks. of the Yarra, the Governor-General, Sir Ronald Munro Ferguson, two years ago offered to contribute 100 guineas. Little has so far been done, but as a result of representations .made to the bodies concerned, it is expected that considerable activity will be dis- o' played during the next few weeks:. tl The roadway on the south side of Y the Yarra between the city and Rich- h mond has now been vested in the h Melbourne City Council, and men are g employed opening up the road at the t( rear of the Amateur Sports Ground " to Punt-road, Richmond.

Bright Stars to Shine on Globe Screen—Clara Kimball Young, William Desmond, Charles Ray and Sylvia Bremer. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
Bright Stars to Shine on Globe Screen -Clara Kimball Young, Williar Desmond, Charles Ray and Sylvia Bremer. Clara Kimball Young in The Rise of Susan gives a. performance second only to her great, triumph in The Common Law. Her role is that of a mannequin at a fashionable shop,'whc is tempted to impersonate a countess in high society. The situation thus created is rather humorous, but when love creeps in it suddenly veers to the tragic and .dramatic. Miss Young rises to the occasion and acts with force and intensity, yet with real ar tistic restraint. It is a good film with a great star. William Desmond as an Irish war correspondent in Paddy O'Hara is another attraction. . We rather suspect Paddy of being a sec ond Denis -Mallory-hero of a popular novel. He does amazing things-offi ciates in a duel, acts as a secret ser vice agent, rescues a beautiful lady and marries a Balkan princess. It is the kind of play that keeps you bubb ling with expectation. Oriental Love, with Ora Carewe s...
The "Old" P.L.C. in Richmond—"Important Business" Remains on the Shelf. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
The "Old" P.L.C. in Richmond "Important Business" Remains on the Shelf. A small type-written slip had been sent around to each of the members of the "old" Richmond P.L.C. inform. ing them that "important business" would be transacted at the monthly meeting in the Oddfellows' Hall on Tuesday night. There was "import ant business," but evidently too "im portant" for the rank and file to deal with. The report of the recent in. quiry by the central body into the, doings of the local Laborites had been specially delivered by hand for pre sentation at the meeting, but was not produced. Several applications for transfers to the new branch were read, and a letter was also received from Mr. G. Vesper, returning officer for the East Ward Labor selection, which takes place to-day, asking that a list of members eligible to vote should be supplied to him. Mr. F. Cole moved that the trans fers should be held over until such time as the inquiry committee pre sented their report. The president (Cou...

HE BLAMED IT ON THE TYRE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
- HE 'BLAMIED IT ON THE TYRE. He didn't pump it full enough; though all the air is free; He left it soft and spongy-like; and scooted on with glee;. He skidded, and he gridded, and whopped through dust and mire, And when it burst - He cursed and cursed, And blamed it on the tyre. He drove it on the- street car tracks 'with confidence superb; He scraped it on -the lamp-posts, and he. scraped it on the kerlb; .He slammed it, and he jambec it any way he might desire, And when it popped, Right out he hopped, And blamed it on the tyre. He cut it on some broken glass, but said that didn't hurt; He kept right on through sand. and mud, and filled -the-cut with dirt; It spotted .here, and rotted there, and soon he howled in ire, When up it blew He 'blew up, too, And blamed it. on the tyre. He put on chains that ground and chewed and gouged into the .tread; He knew his wheels were out of line.. "But.-what of that?" -he said. -He 'whizzed along, and sizzed along;, - he picked. up nails and wir...
IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
IN ENGLAND. - 'Two rival up-country butchers have -been engaged in a fierce "trade war" for some weeks past, and each day they make declarations on their shop windows as to the quality of the goods for sale. Last week one man announced on his shop front: "The. 'King eats our sausages." His rival -'thought hard for a few hours for a good retort, and then occurred a. bright idea, and he labelled his win dow with the legend, "God. Save the' -King." The cleaning out of - merman: names and titles from.-the Royal House of England recalls :the .story of Wil helm. of Germany having cut his hanid severely While he was a ybuth.

On Parents. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
On Parents. A small boy was told to write a composition on parents. This was the result: "Parents are things which boys have to look after them. Most girls have parents, too. Parents con sist of pas and mas. Pas talk a good deal about what they are going to do, but it's mostly the mas that make you mind." The. wise laundress knows that or dinary .tains from fruit juice.and so on may generally. be washed from table linen if the latter is placed in very hot water before any soap is used, and allowed to. remain there for five or ten minutes. If these spots are stubborn, salts. of lemon or spirits of ammonia will probably remove them. In all cases the 'soiled 'linen should be rinsed, thoroughly. before being treated with soap. To discover whether coffee is pire sprinkle a few grains on' the surface of a tumblerful of water. If pure they will float,. but if adulterated they will sink to the .-bottom. S' .. ' " ::, ? .

The Dear Departed. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
The Dear Departed. ,A book that is literally crammed full of good stories is "In Slums and Society," by the Hon. and Rev. Canon Adderley. Possibly, though, some of the anecdotes, if. told by a mere lay man, might be deemed to be lacking in reverence. As, for example, the one about Eliza, who held communications with her departed husband thus: "Are you 'appy, 'Enery?" "Very 'appy,. Eliza." "'Appier than you were on earth, 'Enery?" "Far 'appier, Eliza." "Then you must be in 'eaven, 'En ery?" "No, Eliza!"
DECEIVED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
DECEIVED. I bought some glasses, once you see Dainty and bright and small; He called them "gold," but I was sold, They were only brass after all. I had a friend, but ah, he changed, And friendship's tie was broken, A thoughtless word was overheard, That jealous lips had spoken. I had a hope. of fortune bright, That. cheered me with its glitter. Ah, it was vain, and in disdain It left my soul-life bitter. Ambition lured with tempting smile To. plaudits all enchanting; But prospects fair proved but a snare, Devotion's soul was wanting.. Friendship, ambition, hope and gold Hold naught that lives forever; I seek above that changeless love That crowns life's true endeavor. -R. Hare. Cooranbong, N.S.W. .

Innocent or Guilty? Two hours later Hector emerged from his chambers again, hailed a taxi-cab, and gave the driver an ad dress at Lancaster Gate. He was still very pale, but his handsome face was calm and resolute, and he felt sure of himself once more. During those two hours he had spent alone in his chambers he had passed through an emotional storm the like of which he had never experienced in the whole course of his life, run through the whole gamut of emo tions and emerged at last a man, re solute, unflinching, prepared to face his troubles bravely, ready to meet his fate, whatever that fate might be. In the quietness of his chambers he had fought out the battle with his own heart, reviewed all the events since the night of the Duchess of Dart moor's ball, when he had first been introduce...
WHICH FOOT WALKS FASTER? [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
WHICH FOOT:..WALKS FASTER? You may think this is a very silly :question to ask, but it. isn't. If you will take .a pavement that is clear, and. walk briskly in the centre, you will find, before you have gone fifty •yards, that you have veered very much to one side. You must not make any effort, of course, to keep in the centre; but it you will think of something, and en deavor to walk naturally, you will not be able to keep a correct line. I. you lose yourself on an expanse of bleak moorland, and walk on, you will describe a complete circle. The explanation of this lies in the propensity of one foot to walk. faster than the other, or take a longer stride than the other, causing you to walk to one side. To make assurance doubly sure, try placing two sticks about 8ft. apart, then stand off about 60ft., blindfold yourself, and endeavor to walk be tween them. It is almost impossible.
Is Enthusiasm Dead? [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
Is Enthusiasm Dead? American newspapers are publish ing paragraphs and pictures of the enthusiasm with which the eligibles of the United States are answering to the call of duty now that the cham pion note-writer, President Woodrow Wilson, has definitely cast in his lot with the Allies. One of these pictures shows long lines of eager volunteers marching out S a New York armory fully equipped, and a footnote says "If need be, millfons more such can be sent across the water to teach the Huns their lesson." These are brave words, and 18 months or so ago Aus tralians were saying (and believing) the same thing. We could not, of course, like Americans talk of mil lions, but the word thousands came trippingly from our tongues, and, what was more, results justified the boast. Now, however, though we find declarations of loyalty and sense of duty as plentiful as ever on the part of public speakers, they are not fol lowed up by enlistments. Just at present the people of- Australia have before...
Neatly Countered. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
Neatly Countered. A Parisian journalist recently wrote a rather unfavorable criticism of the performance of a well-known actress. The later was keenly-wound ed, and watched for a chance to avenge herself. She was one evening at the Varietes. with a- young aristo crat for an escort, when she espied the critic. She had a package with her 5which she requested her friend to deliver in person. The dandy rose and, taking the. package, walked over to where the journalist was sitting with a party, and presented it to him, saying: "Mademoiselle, who admires your talent, has requested me to present -you with this as a souvenir from her." The critic took it and opened it be fore his- friends, who had heard the dandy's little speech. It contained about a dozen goose-quills, and smiles and suppressed laughter went around. But the critic was equal to the oc casion. "Ah, my dear sir," said he to the messenger, "please give . my: best thanks to the young lady for these pretty. feathers. I was aware...
