THE MAIDEN PROTESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
THE MAIDEN PROTESTS. My sleeves have been flimsy and flow ing; I've .worn my skirts hobble, and flare; I've fastened waists "coming" and "going"; I've worn some extraneous hair. Worn petticoats full-and not any; I've followed the fashion in hats. My crimes have been frequent and many But I never have sported white spats. "Aren't you glad your son is return ing home, Mrs. Goitabit, even if he is wounded?" "Glad? Him coming home and I haven't had a single win out of the pay he left me to collect and mind for him! Why couldn't he stay until the end of the war or until my luck turn ed?"-N.Z. "Observer." A correspondent complains of the pertinacity with which men look upon women primarily as women, irrespec tive of the functions that they happen at the moment to be performing. This, says the correspondent in question, is fatal to the great cause, even more so than the most active opposition to feminine claims. He reminds us that some time ago there was a big demon strative parade for suf...
CRICKET. RICHMOND v. NORTH MELBOURNE North Melbourne Win. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
CRICKE6T.. RICHMOND v. NORTH MELBOURNE North Melbourne Win. Richmond's captain won the toss and decided to bat. It was a difficult wicket at the start, and three of the best batsmen were out for seven runs. Lovie and the ex-Second Eleven cap tain, Jack Gooley, stopped the rot. Lovie's strong defence saved the situ ation, and the wicket gradually drying out gave the later batsmen a chance. Gooley played an aggressive innings for 48, and, barring one difficult chance at 16, his batting was faultless. Lovie's 28 was also full of merit con sidering the state of the wicket and scoring-board when he began. Bayne Mackay hit out merrily for 22, getting two sixers. Rush played patiently for his 30. The last-wicket stand by Bayliss and Les Smith was useful, Bayliss getting 25 not out and Smith 22. With half an hour to bat, North sent Bracher and Johnson to the wic kets. Richmond's bowlers were Lovie and Mackay. Off the last ball of the first day Mackay caught Bracher off his own bowling, and ...

Baker at the Richmond Court on Mon day he was talking to the licensee of the Village Belle Hotel, .Cubitt-street,, on New Year's Day, and she told him something which led him to step into' a passage-way, where he saw Reardon. "What is the matter with you, Jack?" asked Baker, but the an swer was unexpected. Baker said de fendant opened proceedings by re marking, "Is that you, Bill Baker? you -!" and slashed-him across the forehead with a sharp weapon, pre sumably a razor. Baker was quite naturally not too pleased at this and landed two good -blows on defendant; Then he went inside and the licensee bathed his head. He interviewed Dr. Carnegie a little later, and the doctor informed the court that as an artery and several veins were severed Baker had stood a good chance. of bleeding to death if he had not been treated Dromptly. On a charge of maliciously wound eing Reardon was committed for trial at the ...

Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
Ladies' Letter. M'ost of us like to come from the seaside with just a becoming shade of tan on our cheeks. It speaks of good -health and benefit derived from the stay at the sea. But to be be coming,. the -tan must be. acquired gradually and not all at once! It is the people who get suddenly brown who -brown unbecomignly, and get that red, shiny appearance which is so difficult to cure. If you want to "brown" becomingly don't let your self get brown too quickly. When you first go to the sea be very care ful of your complexion. Wear shady hats and take a sunshade with you whenever you go out. Protect your skin also by means of face cream and powder. If you keep this treatment up for the first few days you will find that you get brown slowly and be comingly without having any need to go through the red-and-shiny faced stage which so many people have to go through just for want of taking a little care. Bathing the face in dilut ed lemon-juice is splendid for curing excessive sunburn, f...

Hotelkeepers Pay for Breaches of Licensing Law.-Long List at Court on Monday. "We've bumped up the revenue a bit to-day," was the comment of a hotelkeeper outside Richmond Court on Monday. They had.

The Nipper WORLD-FAMOUS AT TWENTY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
The Nipper WORLD-FAMOUS AT TWENTY. One morning, two years ago, into the still air cut the rhythmic buzz of an aeroplane (writes C. Lewis Hind in the "Daily Chronicle"). Suddenly the even buzz changed into a horrible grinding whirr. All knew what that means. I rushed out-to see the aeroplane descending awkwardly be tween the trees. It had alighted in an adjoining meadow, and, after an inglorious charge through a low hedge, had paused in the corner of a turnip field, with no more damage than a: punc tured tyre and the breaking of the wire stays. The pilot, who was un hurt, having sent to - for a gang of "riggers," was now seated under a tree, waiting cheerfully. "Engine trouble," he said laconically, "and I got lost in the clouds. Looks like rain." The repairs were not finished until the next afternoon. The village, rather awestruck, silently watched the mechanics. But the Nipper asked questions. That was my first intro duction to him. He said he had turn ed eighteen; he looked fiftee...
Cult of Rat-Catching SECRETS OF THE PROFESSION. PLAGUE HELD IN CHECK. SAVING A CITY FROM DESTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
Cult of Rat-Catching SECRETS OFi THE PROFESSION. PLAGUE .-ELD IN CHECK. *SAVING A CITY FROM ,, DESTRUCTION. The rat-catcher stood inside a rail ed area. In manner and dress he, could not be distinguished from any other professional man. He might have been a lawyer or a doctor, or a mining expert. Except for a certain air of abstraction, and a disposition to retire on the approach of any person who seemed likely to encroach on his privacy, he was just as other men. Nothing could break down this aloof ness of manner. The leader of the most exclusive set in society could not have assumed a greater dignity. It was not that the rat-catcher was car ried away with the importance of his position and the fact that one of his profession appears on the list of offi cers in the service of the King, in coni pany with the first groom of the back stairs, and the lord of the bedcham ber. Not at all. It appears that once when he had played a hero's part in going into plague areas and not onmy cleari...
Kaiser's Chance of Heaven CANON WISE EXPLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
Kaiser's Chance of Heaven CANON WISE EXPLAINS. "What are the Kaiser's chances of reaching heaven?" was the question put to Canon Wise, of St. George's, Goodwood (South Australia). "Would he be welcomed by the Church as a repentant sinner, or be excommuni cated?" "He would certainly be excommuni cated," replied the Canon, "for the simple reason that he is not a chuach man. "But supposing he. -wished to be come a churchman and' lead a better life, what then?" "Our attitude, I think, would be that he must exhibit his penitence. Sup posing he had been baptised, when he was penitent he would be. permitted to receive the benefits of the Church." "Is he quite outside the pale, cr still competent to become a peni tent?" "I hope he will become one." "What is the method of proce dure?" "For the Kaiser the way of peni tence is the way our Allies are pro ceeding to bring him to a state of penitence, but for the time being he doesn't seem to realise he is the criminal we know him to be" "It does...

TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. There is rapping and wrapping. The stipes are getting rapped up and their decisions are wrapped in mystery-if not doubt. But the V.R.C. Committee-the lords of the race-track-very evident ly have got their doubts. Witness their upsetting of the stipes' judgment on the Sweet Com edy fall-down at Caulfield. The stipes fined Kelly for crossing too sharply in front of Sweet Comedy, and by that decision branded him as the real culprit, although they didn't say so. If Kelly were really to blame, ten £10 fines would not have been sufficient punishment, but in the minds of many people he was absolutely free from blame. It was a bad fall-in for the stipes. Next comes the rejection of Blue Bolt's nomination for the big autumn meeting. It indicates that the V.R.C. ore not convinced by the mash-up doc tor's story, and, plainly, they are of opinion that the stipes, as stated in this paper, should have taken action upon it. There are other things also which seem to show that the sti...
Satan's Wiles. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
Satan's Wiles. "Now, Willie, you know I told you not to go swimming, and yet you have been in the water." "I-know it, Ma, but Satan tempted me." 'And why did you not tell Satan to get behind you?" "I did, and he kicked me in." A schoolmistress aslked her class to explain the word "bachelor," and was very much amused when a little girl answered, "A bachelor is a very happy man." 'Where did you.earn that?" asked the mistress "Father told me," the little girl re plied.: A woman tells fairy tales to her children; and a- :efn-telih them to his wife. ; - .
THE FIRST TRAMWAY ACCIDENT. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
THE FIRST TRAMWAY ACCIDENT. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Referring to the letter headed "'The First Tramway Accident," in your last issue, I wish to state. that I am well acquainted with the details of came, which was, in my opinion, the result of someone blundering by turning on the current without due notice to this man. If the result of the accident had been fatal, no doubt the Coroner would have' fixed the blame on the right shoulders and the Trust would have' made reparation to the widow and three children. As it is the Trust have ignored him totally and left him to look after himself and family as best he can. I feel sure that if the matter was represented to the members of the Trust action would be taken to do him justice. The fact that law fees are prohibitive prevents him appealing through the court. In the meantime, anyone desiring to as sist this deserving family by mone tary assistance might forward same to you, as I am sure you will receive same. Thanking you in anticipation, ...
LOVELY WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
LOVELY WOMAN. The man who flatters himself that he understands women continues to live in his delusion until he marries one of them, and then, he finds out that he doesn't. If Nature had intend ed- that we should understand them she would have created them differ ently, and then there wouldn't have been so much in the world .to keep us guessing. The Sphinx is a riddle be cause she never says -anything.- A woman is also a riddle, but not for the same reason. A man shouldn't write about women, n only because he doesn't understand them, but because it is superfluous. A woman can speak for herself. · CP-~~-·_ --.____7
OPEN COLUMN AIR-GUN DANGER. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 27 January 1917
OPEN COLUMN AIR-GUN DANGER. (To the Editor.) Sir,-When a person answers an angry man who is smarting at the mo ment with honest indignation, that person's case must'be very weak in deed. I believe that Mr. McNaughton is an ironware merchant, but I still maintain that presenting or selling air-guns to young people under 16 years of age constitutes a real danger to the community. In regard to my mentioning No. 4 shot, it is some years since I gave up sparrow and pigeon shooting at Bellarine and took to rifle shooting, and I may be excused if in mentioning one of the larger-i sized shot I used the term No. 4 for No. 0. My wife described - the shot which she removed from her mouth and which pierced her veil, cut her lip and badly jarred her teeth, as about the size of a large pepper-corn. Who is "Dreamy Daniel?" My taste in literature does not aspire to comic papers, but my chilaren often bring them home. I will consult them on the subject. Some three years ago a little, comparatively i...
