Memories of Earliest Days Were Well Preserved by Father of Mrs. Sauire Kennon-Death of Mr. Joseph Har vie, at 87. Unknown to many present-day Rich mondites, but well known to the older generation, a link with the earliest days in this district was broken last Saturday, when Mr. Joseph Harvie died at "Morriston." Glenierrie. He was in business as a coacnbuilder very may years ago, and was the founder of the old firm of Joseph Har vie and Sons, carrying on business at the corner of Bridge-road and River street. This sturdy and much re spected pioneer thus passed many of the brightest years of his life within a stonethrow of the home of his old friend, Mr. A. H. Massina. It was coincidental that their deaths should occur within one day of each other. Mr. Harvie, who was 87 years of age, was a man of fine character and de termination, and had a most remark able memory. He frequently enter tained friends with recitals of events that happened over 70 years ago. He was one of the first gol...

Germany Within. PEOPLE WITHOUT STOMACHS. "THE RACE BEGINS TO CREAK." BLOCKADE REAL AND TERRIBLE THING. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Giermany Within. PEOPLE WITHOUT STOMACHS. "THE RACE BEGINS TO CREAK." BLOCKADE REAL AND TERrIBLE THING. The recent letters of Madeline Doty to the New York "Tribune" and the Chicago "Tribune," telling how the war is affecting the great civil popu lation, attract more than usual inter est. This woman lawyer and writer has come into direct contact with the people. Just how they are stint ed in matters of food-is revealed in her contributions to the American press in a completeness which makes the British blockade a real and ter rible thing. Miss Doty reports that the girth of the. average German is passing from rotundity to the severest lean ness, and that the great mass of the people are being driven gradually to desperation by the increasing ravages of hunger. She writes: "As I start to leave the hotel I pause in the entrance to gaze up and down the famous street, Unter den Linden. Thin streams of people are passing and repassing. It is Monday, but the atmosphere is that of Sunday. ...
Lloyd George. OUT TO FINISH THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Lloyd George. OUT TO FINISH THE WAR. By Lord Northcliffe in the New York "Sun." As a personality David Lloyd George is for many reasons interest ing ..and important to the United States. He is one of the few British statesmen understanding the difficult intangible psychology of the Ameri can temperament. He is important to America for another reason. He is now the head of the five British nations engaged in war-Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, together with India. Winning the war now primarily devolves on these nations. If they and the Allies are beaten it will be America's turn next, for Germany's plans in South America and Germany's hatred of the United States should be known to every American who reads the anti-Ameri can propaganda of the0German Gov ernment. Lloyd George is also interesting to your 100,000,000 because his life has been similar to that of many of you. He began simply, without other as sets of life than a good father and mother. He had the ...

Eaten by Crocodile. FATE OF ABSCONDING PEARLERS. Brisbane. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Eaten by Crocodile. FATE OF ABSCONDING PEARLERS. Brisbane. Twenty-three aboriginals deserted from their pearling employers at Thursday Island, and got away in four dingeys. The police search led them across several islands to the mainland, where four of the men were arrested. Fourteen others were arrested two days later. They stated that they all tried to get from En trance Island to the mainland, a dis -tance of 10 miles, with two dingeys, but one of the boats sank, and the men had to swim for it. Four of them were drowned, and the fifth was seized- by a crocodile. " Mrs. Brown: "The trousers which I have washed for Ike have shrunk so much that the poor child 'can hardly put them on." Her Friend: "Try washing Ike, and he might shrink, too."
TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. The Shadow of the Tote is stealing across the Racecourse Horizon, and the Machine threatens to become a reality. Meanwhile the State's double-head ed bookie tax and ticket tax is hitting the bagmen hard, and with the pun ters hitting them harder still, there cannot be much over for chickei' and champagne in these times. But you never know. One chap of most people's acquaintance who was supposed to have been well broke long ago is, at least, not bent. He is still fielding away merrily, and a motor-car-not one of Ford Henry's, either-takes him to the theatre and to the fish shop. Another young chap just blossomed into the business is leaving to-morrow to look after itself, and with a ven geance, too. The silk-sock shops are blessing him, and already he has won the prize for the biggest and bright est collection. No; this paper never mentions names! One thing is certain, and it is that if these chaps can make such a do of it to-day, well, the old chaps must have had gold...
"ANOTHER VAMPIRE." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
"ANOTHER VAMPIRE." A man there was, and he thought to care (Just in the masculine way) For a sweet white soul in a body fair, And he built a house and he set her there And made believe 'twas a house of prayer (Just in the mascuilne way!) He took her soul and he cast it by (In the usual masculine way); She learned of man's love that 'tis born to die That lips of love are oft lips that lie, And how from an altar a man will fly!' (For this is the masculine iay.) So she hid the soul of her out of sight (Out of his masculine way!). For the woman man loves is the wd man- light, And Flesh and not Spirit is man's de light; And if tears there were they were shed at night (Out of his masculine way).. With blood of her body his child she bore (For this is a Woman's way) And though light in her life may shine no more Her lips are his as they were of yore Tho' her heart is dead as never before (For this is the Woman's way!) A man there was and he never could know (Quite in the masculine way) The...

Use of Sling-shot Not Proved in Assault Case.-Magistrate's Com ments on Picture Presented. There was more than the custom ary crowd of onlookers at the Rich mnond Court on Monday, when Arthur Fuller was charged with having as sau!ted Edward Ernest Rainsford. The case was a lengthy one, and evidence was given of many encoun ters and threatenings. It was alleged that Fuller had struck Rainsford on the head with a sling-shot following trouble early in the day. According to Fuller, however, he merely struck complainant with his fist, as Rains ford, when supported by his brother in the afternoon, had hit him. During his evidence Fuller refer red to Rainsford as calling up "rein forcements." "Don't use that term," said Mr. S. Goldsmith, P.M., sharply. "It is re served for soldiers. Men of your age should be the last to use it." ,.In imposing a fine of £5, in de fault three weeks, Mr. .ioldsmith said that there had been allegations that a sling-shot had been used. The bench considered that...
THE DEADLY PARALLEL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
THE DEADLY PARALLEL. ., Ruby Cotter,.a young girl, was sen tenced in the police.. court to 12 months' imprisonment for being in un-: lawful possession -of a-watch. Super intendent Priest said the girl had never had much of: a- chance, and she had now promised to reform The justices thought she had had suffi cient chances, and it was not possible ior them to treat the case leniently. For cruelly ill-treating a pony, which subsequently had to be destroy ed, Frederick Marchall, of Eudunda, was ordered.to pay a fine of £2 -and costs. The evidence showed that the defendant belabored and dragged it along the road for a few yards by a chain attached to its neck. Unlawful possession of a trumpery piece of jewellery, coupled with an ap parently honest offer to reform, re sults in 12 months' imprisonment. Cal lous treatment of a pony which was in such a state after the flogging that it had to be shot merits a fine of only £2. There may be plenty of law about these decisions, but there does no...
