Echoes of a Well-Known Case Revived by Auction Sale.—Peter Anderson's Land Sold Up by Council. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 28 July 1917
Echoes of a Well-Known Case Re vived by Auction Sale.-Peter An derson's Land Sold Up by Council. "Peter Anderson, of parts un known," was given by :Mr. T. G. Forbes, auctioneer, as the previous owner of land sold in Goodwood-st. on Wednesday. Anderson achieved a good deal of notoriety some time ago. Un paid rates on the land had accumula ted, and the council obtained an order to realise. An advertisement appear ed in the daily press, apparently from Anderson, protesting against the sale, and it was thought that there might be trouble at the sale. Everything, however, passed off quietly. The land, with a frontage of 33ft., was sold at £2 10/- a foot. Anderson will get the balance, if any, after court fees and charges, and the amount due for rates is deducted from the sale money. The council will get a "live" tenant.

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
Ladies' Letter. There is some economy to be made in gloves. The washing glove is the most pleasant thing to wear, but it can be only worn once without again being put into the bath. Any woman who has time or servants about her whose business it is to wait on her will unhesitatingly choose the wash ing glove in suede or chamois. But the busy woman, who has no maid and only one housemaid, or perhaps only one servant, will want something that takes less time than that de manded by washing gloves. Not a few are choosing their gloves in darker shades and in gauntlet form. These are worn carelessly drawn to the wrist, and if well cut and not too small, look quite smart. They are expensive in the first instance, but they wear well and clean well at the end of quite a long time. The only drawback is that all dark gloves are likely to be badly dyed, and. as in the stockings that are sold in Paris to-day, the dye comes off. I suppose you have heard the latest "have?" Mr. Phunny asks Mr. Phat....

Within Sound of the Guns. CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS MAY CHANGE THEIR VIEWS. NEW ZEALAND OBJECTORS SHIPPED TO FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
Within Sound of the Guns. CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS MAY CHANGE THEIR VIEWS. NEW ZEALAND OBJECTORS SHIPPED TO FRANCE. It was a keen-edged joke which the New Zealand Minister for Defence played on some "conscientious objec tors" of whose bona-fides he had his doubts. "We'll give them a chance to think it over," he smiled. A squad of "C.O.'s" was ordered from a local camp to Wellington, whither they proceeded with* cheerful grins, be lieving that they were to be. allotted some non-combatant duty. Before they realised what was happening, they were marched on to a ship, and the grins were on the faces of the armed escort. There's no public sym pathy in New Zealand for a bogus "C.O." or any other military point worker, but the relatives of these men did arouse public sympathy by their protests on the ground that the soldiers were hustled off without a chance to say good-bye to their folk. Sir James Allen has explained that there will be no forcing of any men into the fighting line if they r...

Is Sister Susie Slowing Down?-WVork for. Many Women at Richmond Red Cross. Several energetic workers are pre sent at tile meetings of the Richmond I Branch of the Red Cross Society each week, but they are shouldering too heavy a burden.
