The Carbon. THE STORY OF A SPY WHO MADE A MISTAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
The Carbon. THE .STORY OF A SPY WHO MADE A MISTAKE. By Frederick Fenn. Esther-- Rivers was what everyone called a good little woman-that is to say, that all men took off their hats to her, .but none of them. offered to ay. for her board and lodging. She was what is known as a good sort, but not an attractive sort. She had been brought up in a rather impe cunious home under the stern eye of a father who thought it extremely in fra. dig. for his daughters to do any thing in the way of earning their own living. As a consequence, when he died leaving nothing but 'a few debts, Esther and the rest of the family were thrown upon the world without a penny, except for the grudging aid of a few very reluctant relatives. Esther, being the most* enterprising of all, was firmly convinced that with a modicum of capital she could do very well at typewriting, and a surly uncle, hoping thus to get her off his hands, advanced £25 on the under standing that in due course he should have 7 per cent. int...

A CAPTAIN'S PRESENCE OF MIND. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
A CAPTAIN'S PRESENCE OF MIND. A sea captain who died recently displayed great presence of mind at a most critical time. His ship had caught fire, and the passengers and crew were compelled to take to the boats in a hurry. The captain re mained perfectly, cool throughout all the confusion .and fright of .the em barkation, and at last everyone but himself was got safely into the boats. By the time he was ready to follow, the passengers were wild with fear and excitement. Instead of hurrying down the. ladder the captain called out to the sailors to hold on a min ute, and, taking a cigar from his poc ket, coolly bit the end off and lighted it with a piece of the burning rigging. Then he descended with great delib eration and gave the order to shove off. "How could you stop to light a cigar at such a moment?" he was afterwards asked by one of the pas sengers. "Because," he answered, "I saw that if I did not do something to di vert your minds there would proba bly be a panic and the boats...
A Mad Cow. CHASES CYCLIST UP A TREE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
A Mad Cow. CHASES CYCLIST UP A TREE. An infuriated cow was the cause of some excitement on the Kadina-Wal larop-road (S.A.) last week. A local butcher says the cow was being driv en with other cattle into a paddock, when it suddenly attacked him. Think ing discretion the better part of valor, he sought shelter behind a post, and a lively ten minutes' dodging follow ed. Then, catching sight of a pass ing cyclist, the animal transferred its attention to him. Clearing a six-wire fence, it made for the man on the machine, and the faster he pedalled the nearer came the eow. In order to attain' safety, he abandoned the cycle, and made for the nearest tree --a sandalwood-and climbed with all haste - to the' highest. point. - The in furiated- cow evenlattempted :tQ climb the 'tree after hinm.'' Meanwhile:-the butcher' devoted £his` attention to drir ing the aniinal: off, and eventually succeeded. 'The unoffending cyclist, after assuring- himself that the cow was - at a safe distance, descen...

Women and Shells. ASTONISHING EFFICIENCY. BRITISH MUNITION WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
Women and Shells. ASTONISHING EFFICIENCY. BRITISH MUNITION WORKERS. By Russell Sinclair. The development un the manufac ture of British munitions has only been arrived at after sustained energy on the part of a large number of the best men in England. The Ministry of Munitions was started with quite a few hands, and has since grown into a department controlling about 5000 employes on the central staff located in what used to be the Hotel Metro pole and the Armament Building, and an administrative staff of §8,000, of whom 14,000 are women From the Minister for Munitions, during my recent visit to England, I obtained information and photographs to show to the people of Australia something of the determination, en ergy, and sacrifice that the people, and more especially the women, of England, are devoting to the manu facture of munitions, and also to ex plain why it was decided that the manufacture of the 18-pounder H.E. shells should be continued here, and the energies of the Australi...
Stories of War. STRANGE DEATH ATTITUDES. THE UNFELT WOUND. BASHFUL V.C.'S AND WORSHIPPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
Stories of W~ar. STRANGE DEATH ATTITUDES. , THE UNFELT WOUND. - .> IBASHFUL V.C.'S AND - WORSHIPPERS. You are in the convalescent ward at Eandwvick Military Hospital. It is not, yet noon, and the sister of the ward is putting brisk finishing touches to the vase that decks the white enamelled table at the foot of each man's bed. From the- far end of the ward comes an incessant gabbling, that rises every now and then to an indigniant shout. It is the voice of a soldier who has been into the operat ing theatre,. and has not yet recover ed from the effects of the anaesthe tic.,. -Sitting up in bed or strolling about the room are his mates, - who grin now and again as the gabbling increases in volume. [With this accompaniment the voice of Private Barnett, of the 13th Bat talion, goes on, quietly telling you, much as if he were discussing some worn topic, incidents of war that make you wonder at the -possibility of men in the firing-line keeping sane and balanced. Private Barnett was i...
Strange Drinks. WEIRD AND VARIED EFFECTS. "WALKING ON ROSE-COLORED AIR." "METH" AND EAU-DE-COLOGNE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
Strange Drinks. WEIRD AND VARIED EFFECTS. "WALKING ON ROjE-COLORED AIR." "METH" AND EAU-DE-COLOGNE. A few days ago a gentleman ques tioned by a policeman as to his rea son for drinking methylated spirits re plied that it was cheaper than beer, it lasted longer, and was the best friend that he had. Excluding the last reason, which was probably the natural hyperbole of a person in the state that the gen tleman in question would be, the first two reasons fairly accurately sum up the -case of every drinker of methy lated spirits. It is a drink that is not appealing, its nauseating taste and,smell being alone sufficient to re pel the average drinker. Nor does it possess any subtle exhilarating effect like cocaine. The result, rather, of a dose of "meth.," as it is familiarly known, is to stupefy the drinker, and later to make him exceedingly sick. But it is cheap, and for the modest "tray" can be bought sufficient to last three or four days, according to the capacity ef the taker. Methyl...
BECAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 February 1917
BECAUSE. I wondered yesterday mornin', when I woke at the break of day, I'd never noticed the sunrise look so green and gold and gay; And why, when the traces jingled, as I hitched the furrow team, They played a kind of music like you hears 'em in a dream. I reckoned, out in the fallow, it was grand-well, just to Be! And to feel my heart was a-beatin' and to breathe, and hear and see; It beat me, yesterday mornin', and I wondered more and more, Till I thought of that kiss from Emma as I stole the night before. I wondered, yesterday evenin', as I. rounded the milkers up (The tea was cold in the billy, and I had to flog my pup), How a cove could suffer the mallee, with its dismal greens and browns, Why the blazes I stayed there, moul derin', when I might be livin' in towns! It licked me, watchin' the moon rise, why the very scent of the soil Seemed-well, there! I couldn't a-bear it, and my blood was just on the boil; And I wondered yesterday evenin', what had turned it all backwards l...

"That's all right then," said the door-keeper, "'you slept five miles from here.". "No, I didn't," answered the appli cant for epiglottis paregoric.
