Lodge Dispensary Shows Profit on Trading Account Despite Huge Increase in Drug and Medicine Cost.—Mr. G. Fayle New President of Richmond Institution. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Lodge uispensary Shows Profit on Trading Account Despite Huge In crease in Drug and Medicine Cost. Mr. G. Fayle New President of Richmond Institution. Starting the year with a capital ac count 'of £3710, the Richmond United Friendly Societies' Dispensary closed I with a profit of £139 18/4. It must be very satisfactory to the many local societies concerned, and at a time when the price of drugs and many medicines has increased enormously, that such a result should have been achieved. It is highly credible to the management. The principal item of expenditure was, of. course, drugs, medicine, etc., which absorbed over £1700, and salaries to. secretary, dis penser, and assistants amounted to just over £1100. Patent medicines bought by lodge patients cost £228, but, with other extras, returned £290. Rent of the lodge-room brought in £57. The 45th annual meeting was held at the Dispensary Hall on Friday, [February 2. Mr. J. McCormick pre sided over a good attendance of dele gates. The me...
Inside Information. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Inside Information. There is a minister who says more good things in the pulpit than get into the newspapers. In one of his Sunday sermons he had occasion to refer to Jonah in a somewhat dis paraging manner. "And there's Jonah," he said, "who ever heard of him until the whale brought up the subject?" Owens: My landlord has ordered me out because I can't pay my rent. Bowens: Glad I met you. So has mine. Let's change quarters. Wife: "I don't understand how you can spend whole evenings at the club." Hub.: Then you talk an awful lot about something you don't under stand." A poor man had been dragged out of the river just an he was about to sink for the last time. Someone suggested that some whisky should be given to him, and the half-drowned man, overhearing the remark, murmured in a low, fee ble voice: "Turn me over first and get out some o' this water; it'll weaken the liquor." Practical Father: I've given you a good college education; what more do you want? Son: You haven't yet suppl...
Button Day Collections Cause Rivalry—Intrusion from Other Suburbs Is Resented. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Button Day Collections Cause Rivalry -intrusion from Other Suburbs Is Resented. According to statements made, there is a good deal or rivalry among the button-day collectors, but it is generally in good feeling. There is; however, resentment at the case of ladies from other suburbs coming into Richmond and swelling their col lections at the expense of the list from this city. It is stated that the wife of a gentleman prominently asso ciated with the management of one big manufactory, and who is a mem ber of the button committee in an other suburb, comes into the factory on button day and effects a large sale to the hundreds of employes. This amount, contributed by Richmond re sidents, is, it is said, credited to the fund in another suburb. The Mayoress (Mrs. A. F. Fear) has issued a circular to all local manufac turers:-"I am asked to again im press on you the fact that ladies still report the intrusion in Richmond fac tories of collectors on behalf of the button fund of other munic...

Referring to the excellent treatment Australians receive in England, he writes:-"I was standing in front of the station at Russell square when a nice lady and her two daughters came up and said, 'Are you from Australia?' And when I said 'Yes,' she asked me where I wanted to go. I told her I was just having a look around. Well, she begged me to go with them, and I did so. They took me to Charing Cross, Lester-square, Waterloo, the picture gallery, museum, and then home to tea. They ...

Snapshots Sent to Richmond Soldiers.—More Members Wanted by Local Branch to Carry on Good Work. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Snapshots Sent to Richmond Sol diers.-More Members Wanted by Local Branch to Carry on Good Work.. Over 1000 snapshots of loved ones have gone forward to Richmond's soldiers at the front as a result of the efforts of the local branch of the Snapshots from Home League.. The league has only been in operation about six months, but its members have been energetic. The Richmond branch is small as to membership, but big in eagerness and earnestness. Any resident who has a camera is in vited to join. If he is only a begin ner other members will assist him, and he will profit thereby. The more experienced he is the better work he will be able to turn out for the troops. That the snapshots are appreciated is evident from many grateful letters from the front. Per sons wishing to join the local branch may do so free of charge by com municating with the hon. secretary, Mr. R. H. Holt, at 75 Fraser-street.
Owners to Provide Lamp and Drivers to Keep Light Showing.—Probable Alteration in Council's Red-Light at-Rear-of-All-Vehicles' Regulation. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Owners to Provide Lamp and Drivers to Keep Light Showing.-Probable Alteration in Council's Red-Light at-Rear-of-All-Vehicles' Regulation. As stated in the "Guardian" last week, the long and painful after midnight discussion at the previous meeting of the Richmond Council up on Cr. Webber's proposed red light regulation has proved absolutely fu tile. The Hawthorn Tramways Trust had, with a view to minimising the risk of accident, urged the council to draft and bring in a by-law requiring all vehicles to show a red light be hind. Cr. Webber, as a council re presentative on the Trust, attempted to get support, but several members of the council, who are drivers by oc cupation, opposed him. The motion of Cr. Webber made the -owner and not. the driver responsible for the display of the light. Last week we pointed out that such a position was not at all likely to be upheld in any court of law and equity. The propo sal, however was carried, and then, as is usual, submitted to the council's...

The council will con sider such evidence and act accord ingly at the Appeal Court to be held on February 26. Just a little powder on a woman's nose acts as a powerful nerve stimu lant.

One of the members who had seen active ser vice was congratulated on his recent marriage.

The World Struggle. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
The World Struggle. By Colonel J. S. Lyster in Sydney "Sun." We are all expecting 'great results from the proposed big offensive in the Western grand theatre of war. On what grounds can any living man form such a conclusion? Is it be cause we believe that the Allies have no superiority 1. On the sea. 2. In numbers. 8. In munitions. 4. In' the air. 5. In credit; or is it because we believe that 1. Austro-Germany is short of food. 2. Bulgaria and Turkey are on the verge of bankruptcy. 3. The morale of the enemy armies is seriously affected. An impatient spirit is exhibited, both in leading articles in the press and in views expressed daily by the public, as to the delay in crushing our enemies. It is because we are all in a fog. We don't know the precise strength of the adversaries' armies, the standard of efficiency of the Al lies' armies, or the value of railways to feed and move great masses of men, and the power railways afford to concentrate preponderating strength on any point o...
PRACTICE v. PREACHING. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
PRACTICE v. PREACHING. It is easy to sit in the sunshine, And talk to the man in the shade; It is easy to float in a well-equipped b And point out the places to wade. But once we pass into the shadows, We murmur and fret and frown; And our length.- from the bank we shout for a plank, Or throw up our hands and go down. It is easy to sit in your carriage, And counsel the man oh foot; But get -down and walk, ?fidd yoii'll change your talk, As youi feel the nail in your boot. It is -easy to tell: the toiler, How best he can carry -his pack; - But no.one can- rate -a-burdefi's weight Until it has been on :his back. The upcurled moputh of pleasure Can preach of sorrow's worth; But give it a siD, and a wryer lip Was never made on earth. The lives of many are ruined by the fatal error .hat the more one pos. sesses the more one enjoys.
