COME INTO THE GARDEN (OFEDEN) MAUDE. (With Apologies.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
COME INTO THE GARDEN (OF EDEN) MAUDE. (With Apologies.) Come into the garden, Maude, For the black browed Turk hath flown, Come into the garden, Maude; For the fall of Kut atone; And the "Woodbine" spices are waft ed abroad And the bluff of the Hun is blown. For the screen of darkness moves And your star of Glory's high, Beginning to glow in the light we love In the light of victory. To shine in the folds of the Flag we love, To fight for till we die. -N., in the "Times of India." At a recent baby show all the bab ies were given prizes, which seems a diplomatic way of dealing with a dif ficult situation. Everybody will greet with appre ciation and applause the firm, strong and wise policy which fell from the lips of the Sydney magistrate, who said: "This practice of throwing bot tles at policemen must be stopped." Mr. King was undoubtedly right. Mis apprehension as to the functions of a police constable has been far too wide ly spread; and there is grave reason to believe that in a ...
New Arrival at Council Stables to be Named "Maurice"—Mr. Hicks Again the Seller. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
New Arrival at Council Stables to be Named "Maurice"-Mr. Hicks Again the Seller. One keg of Epsom salts from Rocke, Tompsitt and Co. at £1 6/- was an item of expenditure approved of at the council meeting on Monday night. Not for the councillors, oh, dear no; but the horses-the dear old municipal horses. Another fact notified on the business paper was that yet another addition will join the well-cared-for team at Duke-street. Mr. W. G. Hicks, who seems to have as big a lien on the horse-selling as Pat Raftis has on the chaff, was down to receive a cheque for £40 on account of the new arrival. We notice it is a draught "horse," not a -draught "mare" this time. You know what happened last time Mr. Hicks-but though we die get two for one, it must not happen again. The council Is taking precau tions.

Blazey) was In the midst of reading letters From the Burnley and East Richmond Progress Association when the re marks were made.

Council Declines to Support Governor general in Effort to Beautify Yarra at South Richmond—A Memorial That Might Have Kept green the Names of Richmond Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
Council Declines to Support Governor. General in Effort to Beautify Yarra at South Richmond-A Memorial That Might Have Kept Green the Names of Richmond Soldiers. Much to the surprise of all those interested in the improvement and beautification of the city, a majority of the Richmond Council on Monday night refused-to join in the scheme, supported by the Governor-General with a donation of 100 guineas, for tree planting on the Yarra bank at South Richmond. Crs. G. D. O'Connell and H. Robin son, who met Mr. J. M. Reid, Secre I tary for Lands, and Mr. C. Catani, for merly chief engineer for the Public SWorks Department, and discussed the Sproposal, 'were enthusiastic in sup port, but with the solitary exception of the Mayor, every other councillor turned a cold shoulder. All that th' council were asked to do was to de vote a small sum, which would be spent on guards for the trees, brt such is the state of the finances of the council, or so councillors declared, Sthat not even this sma...
Not all Tragedy. FUN IN AIR FIGHTING. LAUGHS ON BOTH SIDES. HUMOR RELIEVES MINDS OF AVIATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
Not .all Tragedy. - FUN IN AIR FIGHTING. LAUG-JS -ON BOTH SIDES. HUMOR RELIEVES. MINDS OF 'AVIATORS. One hears too much, perhaps, of the tragedies of air-fighting in these days when casualties are necessarily heavy and- certain people are agitat ing for 'greater efficiency in aircraft equipment in the hope of minimising the casualties. But even, air-fighting is not without its humor at times, though, be it understood, the humor is generally at the other fellow's ex pense (writes C. G. Grey, editor of the London "Aeroplane," in the New York "World"). There is, for instance, the classic case of the German aeroplane which was attacked by a British machine of at least equal speed, and landed well behind the British lines absolutely in tact, barring a few bullet-holes in the wings, which did not matter. As soon as the machine came to a standstill a crowd of British soldiers rushed out to capture the crew. As. they. approached they saw the pilot scram ble out of the machine and run for hi...
A Busy Night. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
A Busy Night. SThe days of Seth Balder, the scalp-.. hunting scout beloved of the days of boyhood, are gone, but his disciples' flourish exceedingly unto this day. There are still trackless forests in Canada where, if the wily Indian no longer stalks the paleface, the pale face may still perfect himself in the art of woodcraft, to the ultimate dis comfiture of various creatures of the wild. Pug Walker, lieutenant in the Nth Regiment of Canadian Infantry (whose first name had been bestow ed upon him at college in delicate al lusion to his nasal development), thought of these things as he sat in his dugout removing from his attire such articles as might rustle, clink or clatter, thus producing a noise like ly to attract the attention of a con scientious sniper. Pug had wandered much in the wilds in pre-war days, and had learned many a trick of for est-lore, little thinking that he would one day use them to advantage against a more scientific, and more savage, foe than even the Huron o...
From Various Sources [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
From Various Sources The Germans will soon be calling him Hinder-burg. He wondered why his wife sud denly turned cold on him and remain ed so for several days. For all that, he had said in remonstrance was: "My dear, you'll never be able to drive that nail with a flat-iron. For hea ven's sake, use your head."-"Ladies' Home Journal." An actress out on a money-hunt in Sydney recently wheedled-a crowd of racing men. "I've got £136," she an nounced presently; "I would so like to make it £150. Now"-her eyes went straight to a handsome fielder "you're a nice-looking man." "I'll toss you," he said promptly, "whether I give you £14 or nothing. You call." The coin was spun and the actress called clearly: "What the little dog has-" The man stood the roar of laughter bravely, and handed' over his £14 like a true sport.-Sydney "Sun."

The Heart of Daphne Published by Special Arrangement. Copyright. CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
The Heart of Daphne By LADY TROUBRIDGE, Author of "The Cheat," "The Soul of "Honor," "Love, the Locksmith," "The Girl with the Blue Eyes," etc. Published by Special Arrangement. Copyright. CHAPTER VIII. No words could have 'oeen more terrible to Daphne than these. They somehow seemed to revive all the fleeting thoughts she had had about Mendham, and to present them to her as facts. In spite of his proud bearing, and of the great barrier that his position had put between them, she had always felt a kind of intui tion that between them there could have been, under other circumstances, the greatest possible sympathy. She had always been conscious of the magnetic power exercised by his eyes, and of the unspoken messages that they had sent her; and yet it was only in her dreams that she had felt sure that he somehow realised how different from those about her she was-somehow wanted to be her friend, somehow put her in a niche apart. In the day time these fancies had seemed the follies th...

Give Martin or ders to show him up here immedi ately he arrives, and warn him not to mention that we are at home. You understand?" Mrs. Cramer nodded, picked up Phyllis with comparative ease, dis playing unexpected' strength, and carried her up to her bedroom, where she dropped her on the bed and, after sprinkling some water on her face, left her, and went to give orders to the servants and summon Cramer's confederates who were in the house. '"What is the programme?" she asked, when Hertz, smart and power fully built, and Johnson, sleek and cunning-looking, had been brought up from the dining-room. "Will you need any help?...

No Secret Peace for Us. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
No Secret Peace for Us. We Went to War with Germany for our Honor, and we must see that it is kept Untarnished for our Heroes' Sake. What are WE going to get out of the war? The question is being asked every day. Is it to be vast tracts of Ger man 'colonies, or the German Fleet, or Heligoland, or a part of the war indemnity? Everybody has a different idea about the carving up of Germany. But we entered into this war without any thought of gain. We went in because it was a matter of national honor, and to prove that it was this sense of honor that sent us in, and not the hope of spoil, let us see to it that we come out, not as victors whose one and only idea of conquest is booty, but as people who have won what they fought for, people who have pinned the tyrants down, administer ed a hiding for their blackguardism which they will never forget. SNobody wants to spare Germany. She has to pay. But what she must Pay for in solid cash is not the blood of our heroes; that is above the pric...

MODERATE MEALS LENGTHEN LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 4 August 1917
MODERATE MEALS LENGTHEN LIFE. With the food controller giving in structions that we are to limit our focd, it is a bit hard to advise people, but, as a matter of fact, far more per sons die from over-feeding than from starvation. Especially is this the case with persons over forty, for after that age the system becomes less able to stand the strain imposed by im proper feeding. Even the selecti6n of the right kind of food is less import ant than the rule of eating in strict moderation. In regard to the choice of diet, however, all foods rich in earth, salts and starchy matter are to be avoided as ossifying and clog ging the tissues. As a general rule, it has been observed that the dietaries of long-lived persons are distinguish ed by small quantities of meat and the prominence of fruit, and that ho centenarian has ever been a glutton. It should be remembered that it is the food digested, and not the food eatenri that produces vitality, and that -many people eat at last twice the qua...
