Punished Enough. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917
Punished Enough. "Charlie, Charlie, there's a burglar in the house!" cried Mrs. Jamieson to her husband. "A burglar!" exclaimed Charlie, jumping out of led. "I'll soon settle his game!" - Hle seized the poker and went quiet ly downstairs. Five minutes later he returned. "Well," said his wife, "have you settled him?" "No," replied Charlie, "I didn't do anything to him. Poor fellow! You see, I went down and caught sight of him in the kitchen helping himself to a slice of that pudding you made for our dinner."

- .. . ·. :- . S- Fed Up. He was oneiof those awfilly quiet lovers. He loved the girl` iith the fury of a smelting furnace :but the words he'd..uttered during a tull even ing's courtship could have gone on a penny postage stamp. They were. sitting on thle plush couch as was their wont, fron 9.30 to good-night tinie, Gladys doing all the talking and Percy making "gad eyes."

"Well," she cried, as. her stook of patience was exhausted, "I don't mind it being blind, but for goodness sake, Percy, don't make it speechless,"

Chivalry of Richmond Council Not Yet Dead—Gym. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917
Chivalry of Richmond Council Not Yet Dead-Gym. Girls Will Stay On and Be Admitted at Any Age. By a single vote the Richmond Council on Monday night decided that the age of members of the ladies' classes at the municipal gymnasium should not be limited. Thereby the young women who have pioneered the success of the "gym," are saved from the ignominy of being, metaphorically, "driven from home." The wide pub licity that has been gained by the gym. seems to have been too much altogether for some councillors. It has been a case of "gym., gym., gym.," ever since with them. There was another debate on the subject at the council meeting on Monday night. The gymnasium com mittee had submitted a new set of regulations. It was provided that the maximum age for the boys' classes be fixed at 18 years, and that no age limil be placed on the lady members. Here was room for a fine old argument. Cr. Joyce and others wanted the age of the girls pinned down to 18, the same as the boys, or, alternative...

Richmond Council Meeting Comes to Sudden Full Stop—Appearance of Red Light Regulations Send Councillors Off to Bed. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917
Richmond Council Meeting Comes to Sudden Full Stop-Appearance of Red Light Regulations Send Coun cillors Off to Bed. With a business paper greatly ex ceeding the size of the usual sheet in front of them, councillors began pro ceedings early at the fortnightly meet ing in the town hall on Monday night. First of all they were engaged in committee examining tenders for addi tional electric lights in the municipal gymnasium. Then they trooped into the council chamber. It was quite un usual for the meeting to open without Cr. Kemp being present. He arrived at a later stage. The list of inward correspondence was also a long one 33 letters being numbered on the agenda paper. Only a few of them were of any public interest, but the majority of them called for some at tention or remark, and it all took time. A number of residents of the Yarraberg end of the East Ward were in attendance to hear the fate of the application by J. Kennon and Sons for permission to erect a fellmongery establishmen...
HOW THEY VOTED. AUSTRALIANS ON ACTIVE SERVICE. ARTICLE IN FRENCH PAPER REPUBLISHED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 3 March 1917
HOW THEY VOTED. AUSTRALIANS ON ACTIVE SERVICE. ARTICLE IN FRENCH PAPER REPUBLISHED. Arthur Pearson, formerly of Miller street, now on active service in France, forwarded a letter to the 'C-uardian" which was published last issue. He also enclosed a cutting from a French newspaper describing how our soldiers voted on the Con scription Referendum. It is very evi dent that the subject aroused great interest in the Republic; and our read ers .will doubtless find interest also in reading the following translation. The article, it should be understood, is from the Havre correspondent to a newspaper published in a northern province of France: The correspon dent declares that a majority of sol .iers voted against conscription, and he may or-may not be misinformed.

Soldiers' Children Interested as Tak ings at Street Stall are Counted Success of Bridge Road Stand. "Some of that money is going to help buy thifigs for my daddy, isn't it, lady?" Two children, a boy and girl, hold ing each other's hands, stood outside the special Win-the-War stall, in Bridge-road, after the day's work was over last Friday. Mrs. F. Mitchell stop ped short in her count of the day's takings as she heard the child's in quiry. She, too, asked a question. "Who is your daddy?" she queried. The younger child, with her first crop of flaxen curls crowning her head, looked up at her proudly. "Our dad dy's been at the war since it began," she said. The full profits from this one stall were £35. Its success must be high ly gratifying to the ladies who assist ed. Mrs. Mitchell has not been able to get the names of all those who con tributed to the stocking of the stall, but she takes this opportunity of re turning thanks to all.
