The Only Real Peace. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
The Only Real Peace. By W. M. Hughes. Men ask each other, "When will the war end?" It is the eternal question for ever on the tip of one's tongue. But al though we are overwhelmed with answers of sorts, none are satisfac tory. Yet at least by this time we know enough to be sure that the war will not end while Germany sees the faint est glimmer of hope of victory or avoidance of defeat. When the day comes that Germany, scanning the heavens with haggard face, sees no break in the dreadful blackness, when she is made to rea lise that the doors of (destiny have been barred against her, then, but not till then, Peace-the kind we want and must have-will be at hand. Our business is to hasten the com ing of that great day. It may be it is not yet in sight. But it lies within the power of the Allies to make cer tain, not only that it will come, but come soon. But it is not about how to achipve victory, but what is to come atter that I desire to speak here. When Peace comes, bringing in her h...
Novices Do Well in St. Ignatius' Bowling Teams. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Novices Do Well in St. Ignatius' Bowling Teams. Several of the leading players be ing absent at other matches, it was decided to play some of the more pro mising colts in the match against Es sendon last Saturday on the St. Ig natius' green. Their showing was I commendable, and elicited praise from their opponents. No. 1 rink (P. Marzorini, J. Cardiff, H. Brady and E. Green) were erratic in the first few ends, but steadied up and gave a good account of themselves. Bar celo's rink showed lack of cohesion, many ditches being the result. T. Finlayson's rink was somewhat bet ter, though a first-year man, W. Clif ford, was evidently out of his class, "grassing" his bowls beautifully and repeatedly laying the shot. J. Wil liams was well pleased with the team, which he captained. It included Messrs. Curran, Brady and H. Smith. Although young and inexperienced, they played well together. Refreshments were served on the lawn by Mesdames Williams, Finlay son and Miss M. Douglas, to whom the t...
MARCONI'S GREATEST PLEASURE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
MARCONI'S GREATEST PLEASURE. "Nothing ever gave me greater pleasure," Signor Marconi once told Mrs. Alec Tweedle, who has written another book of interesting reminis cences ("My Tablecloths"), "than a certain hundred pounds I earned for writing an article. Oh, dear, I was proud of that hundred pounds. An American magazine wrote to me for something and offered twenty guin eas. I refused and never gave the thing a second thought. They wrote again and offered me fifty pounds and again I refused; I am not a lit erary man, only a very busy one. To my surprise these American people cabled a hundred pounds or a shilling a word. It seemed so delightful that I accepted and wrote the article; and that hundred pounds earned by my very own pen was an immense joy. I really don't think anything ever gave me greater pleasure." • €.. m ? m ? ?--?,
OPEN COLUMN THE GIRLS' GYMNASIUM. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
OPEN COLUMN THE GIRLS' GYMNASIUM. To the Editor. Sir,-In your last issue appears a letter signed by Mr. Cox re gym nasium. It contains a few inaccur acies. He states that the council "grabbed" the cash from the display. The facts are that there was a loss to the council on the display of about £2 11/. Further, the council has no funds to provide refreshments for the performers at such entertain ments. It is also stated that the girls "may not appear at the Eight Hours anniversary demonstration. Might 1 point out that the resolution asking the girls to go to that demonstration was nullified by a later resolution the same evening. Yours, etc., C. W. MORGAN, Chairman Richmond Council Gymnasium Committee. Stillman-street, Richmond. 31/2/1917.

Flax Growing. NEW INDUSTRY FOR AUSTRALIA GREAT POSSIBILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
SFlax Urowing. NEW INDUSTRY FOR AUSTRALIA SGREAT POSSIBILITIES. By C. R. Rogers. We have only touched the fringe of the possibilities of agricultural pro. duction in Australia. The- farmer has only 'scratched a small - portion of those arable lands which should be under crops. I do not mean merely wheat, maize, oats and barley. There are -other crops which are perhaps of greater utility. Linseed is one of them. An acre of linseed is less trouble to grow than an acre of wheat. It is easily cultivated. It is a drought-re sisting crop. The return to the farm er would be from £6 -to. £15 for fibre and. seed, in .one .season, yet there:is very little of it grown in Australia. Linseed is. useful for the produc tion of fine linen, twines, canvasses, but, above .all, for the-.production of linseed oil. At the present time the .province which held a world's record in the .production of fibre, Riga, in Russia, has been devastated by war,' and at Courtrai, on- the borders of Belgium and France...
War will Make Europe a Unit. ALL BELLIGERENT NATIONS TO HAVE SIMILAR GOVERNMENTS AND TRADE SYSTEMS. The Hague. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
War will Make Europe a Unit. ALL BELLIGERENT NATIONS TO HAVE. SIMILAR- GOVERNMENTS AND TRADE SYSTEMS. The Hague. War will standardise Europe. When peace. comes,,~the political, econoniic, and social differences . between: .the belligerent States will have disap peared; and ali the countihes'which have been throuigh the struggle will' look much like one ai6ther; There will still be disparities of ed ucation; religion and manners. But the constitutions will be..ali-ke; the. trade terms will be identical; and so cial organisations' will be the same. Three-quarters of the things that differentiate Russiains from Germans and Britons from Frenchmen either will have ceased to exist, or will have been. adopted by all these nations, and Europe - will be a homogeneous unit such. as it has never been be fore. Likens War to Plane. "War is.- running a -plane over Europe, and levelling everythinig." This is the summing-up of Dr. En gelbert_ Pernerstorfer; vice-president of Austria'sReichsrath and...
CRICKET. RICHMOND v. FITZROY. Home Team's Good Position—Younger Players Do Well with Ball—The Man Behind the Wickets. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
CRICKET. RICHMOND v. FITZROY. Home Team's Good Position-Younger Players Do Well with Ball-The Man Behind the Wickets. Richmond appeared to have a weak team when they took the field against Fitzroy at the Punt-road ground on Saturday. Allan, Mackay and Gooley were absent, their places being filled by W. Kelly and Wells and Dondey from the second eleven. Cody won the toss, and it looked as if Richmond were in for an afternoon's leather hunting. Sindrey and Les Smith, how ever, both proved very difficult to play, and Fitzroy were all out for the small total of 108-a very creditable performance for the local team. Ogil vie kept wickets splendidly, stumping three batsmen off Sindrey's bowling, whilst there was not one bye, the three sundries shown in the score consisting of one no-ball and three leg-byes, the ball glancing off the batsman's pads on that occasion. Sin drey secured five wickets for 55 runs, and Smith three for 29. Smith always looked difficult to play, his ball swing ing a...

After that he dis posed of two other batsmen by taking two splendid catches in the field. Whittle (3), Weate (3) and Hart (2) took the wickets.

Taken Literally. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Taken Literally. When the present war was in its infancy "hangers back" found them selves continually taken to task. A grocer's traveller, calling for the usual order, was scornfully asked why he was not answering his country's call. Thinking he could see a good customer slipping away, an excuse was desperately urgent. Fortunately an incoming customer relieved the position, and a happy idea came his way. "Mladam," he continued,. "perhaps if I told you I've not all my toes on one foot you would scarcely believe it.'" This aroused the sympathy o'f the shopkeeper, whereupon he. got anifn creased order. Upon telling her hus band of the young man's misfortune he coolly replied, "Well, have you?" The feelings of the good lady can be better imagined than described. Harvest was over, and the squire had bidden his men to a feast. Knives and forks effectively banished elo quence for a time, but at length orat ing began, and the oldest servant stood up to propose the health of the host. "It ha...
Would Straighten Them Out. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Would Stiaighten Them Out. "?iy husband is so poetic," said one lady-to another in a-tramcar the other day. "Have yoii ever tried rubbin' his jints with- hartshori linimint, mum?" interrupted a woman with a market basket at her feet, who was seated at the lady'.s, elbow and overheard the remark. "That'll straighten him up as quick as anythink I knows on that is, of, course, if he ain't got it too bad." Mary had a little ring, 'twas given by her beau; and .everywhere that Maryl went, that ring was sure to-go. She took the ring with her one day, away off to the sea, where she might show it to the girls, who numbered twenty-three. And when the girls all saw that ring, they made a great ado, ex claiming, with one voice: "Has it at last got round to you?"
Wounded Germans. TEUTONS APPRECIATE KINDNESS OF FOE. London. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
Wounded Germans. TEUTONS APPRECIATE KINDNESS OF FOE. London. Few Londoners are aware of the fact that a large consignment of Ger mans wounded in the recent Franco-, British- offensive on the Somme has just arrived in London. - Remarkable care is being .given to these men, who are quartered in the Richmond Military ' Hospital over looking the. wonderful park which is the .pride of London and. which is unquestionably one of the most beau tiful spotsl.which any of the world's capitals have .to. offer. For some days between fifty and sixty German wounded were accom modated in the Hammersmith Ortho pedic Hospital in a block of buildings Iup to that time vacant for patients, but since they have been transferred to' equally comfortable quarters and the Orthopedic Hospital is using all its space for the treatment in which it specialises. s - Many. of °the' German- wounded are suffering from extremely grave in juries, but they are described as mak ing good tempered, but rather taci turn pati...

FOOTBALL THIS SEASON RICHMOND CLUB IN FAVOR. POSITION OF ST. KILDA AND SOUTH MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 February 1917
FOOTBALL. THIS SEASON RICHMOND CLUB IN FAVOR. POSITION OF ST. KILDA AND SOUTH MELBOURNE. "Will any of the League clubs play football this season?" The question was put by an old Yellow and Black supporter who has two sons in the trenches. The answer cannot be found im- mediately. Executives of the var- ious clubs have yet to make known their own individual club views, and the League, with these views in front of them, will consider the whole position and give a decision or make a suggestion. On a surface view it appears that with the war position so critical as it &nbsp; is, League football is impossible this season. The spectacle of last sea- son's fiasco still haunts some club leaders, and many people take the view that it is not conceivable that the best of our young manhood should be sacrificing their lives on the battlefield while other young men should remain at home and demon- strate on Saturday afternoon that they are in perfect physical condition by indulging in gam...
