OPEN COLUMN AIR-GUN DANGER. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
OPEN COLUMN AIR-GUN DANGER. To the Editor.) Sir,-The letter in your last issue on the above subject reminds me of "Dreamy Daniel" produced in a comic paper; he dreams of wonderful hap penings and then wakes up. Mr. Litch feld evidently wrote his letter before he woke up. His knowledge of shot is nil, as a No. 4 is very small and you would have to hold the barrel of an air-gun in your mouth to feel any ef fects from it; in any case you would have to be very near a person for them to receive a violent blow (as SMr. Litchfield states) from the largest shot that fits an air-gun. He states that nearly every Christmas accidents happen in Richmond from these awful weapons. I do not remember seeing in print an accident occurring in the whole of Victoria from the cause. Most of the boys with air-guns have their fathers or brothers at the front, and why should not the youngsters have harmless amusement as well as prac tice for the future? It is nonsense Italking about prosecuting tradesmen wh...
WOMEN LIVE LONGER THAN MEN. Greater Power of Endurance. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
WOMEN LIVE LONGER THAN MEN. Greater Power of Endurance. Woman. is all-imnportant, for race survival, and she is far superior to. man as to endurance. Girl-babies in the first year of their existence have more power to resisti: the diseases of babyhood, and- have.:. thirty per cent. more chance of sur vival than 'boys. Many women live in tiny rooms~ where hardly a breath of fresh air enters, and yet more men than wo men die- of consumption. A woman journeys, to and. - from..i business with thin stockings and low-:- necked blouse, or goes to the thea tre. in a' filmy evening . dress, bare chest, arms and shoulders, arid sel doom comes to any harm. Whereas if man were to attire himself: ini- this way he would be down with pneu monia the next day. - Woman can endure physical pain" for months, or even years,. and: stick it longer than any man could. She is used to pain, and puts up with it without a murmur. She is less affected by the shock 'of surgical :operations, can stand the straifi...

Save Your Money. YOU CAN'T GET ANYWHERE UNLESS YOU DO. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Save Your Money. YOU CAN'T GET ANYWHERE UNLESS YOU DO. (By Alpert Atwood.) Several months. ago the editor sug gested: as the subject .of an article the following question:. "Can .a man get to the topl in finance 'by brains alone?" It is not proposed to answer this question now, but it can be sta ted in the most emphatic .manner that unless a young-man (or a wo man) accumulates- some capital of his own, he- can not possibly over come the lead of. the inheritors of wealth. More and more young people do, start with inherited money, and the millions that haven't any ar handicapped to' begin with. This article might be 'called "How Fortunes Begin." But it might just as well be called "How a Happy Life Begins," or "How a- Little Business .May Become Successful." To 'be successful, a business entnter prise and an individual alike need a backbone of money. The American Bankers' Association, througih its savings bank section, recently pbo lished an article that said: "Whether it is a million...
TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
TUFTS OF TURF. Asleep Or A-squeal? Therein, good friends, is the ques tion. What a hullabaloo has descended upon us this week. Four first favor ites won at Aspendale. We never heard a complaint during long trot of outs that the poor punter had to put up with until the luck broke with the passing of the old year. We do not know any more than the men who have suggested it if there is such a thing as packing fields in operation, but it does strike us as strange that the squeal should be made just as soon as ever the public gets a bit of its own back. That it is not palatable to the book makers we are aware, but who cares for them, anyhow? Is it the bookie or the backer who has benefited by the "dead-uns"? Watch, as we have done, and walk, as we have also done on many occasions, while finger-be jewelled, cigar-bedecked, rich book makers, sitting back in comfort in their motor cars, speed swiftly by. But, woe be to Israel-if the public should manage to pick a winner, or two for two or th...
Well-known Burnley Resident Was Conductor on Bolting Tram—Motor-Man is Declared by Fellow Employes to be the "Most Experienced Driver in the Service"—Many Other Richmond People Aboard. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Well-known Burnley Resident Was Conductor on Bolting Tram-Motor. Man is Declared by Fellow Employes to be the "Most Experienced Driver in the Service"-Many Other Rich mond People Aboard. As was only to be expected, many Richmond people were aboard the tram-car which bolted down the steep Burwood hill, struck an elm-tree and overturned last Sunday afternoon. Mr. Willie Higginbotham, the con ductor, is well known locally. He was' formerly in business as a hairdresser in Swan-street, but on the tram ser vice being established, applied for and was appointed to a position. Hig ginbotham's reason for the transfer was that outdoor employment would be more beneficial to his health. As secretary of the Burnley Old Boys' Association and joint secretary of the big charity carnival held on the Rich mond Cricket Ground two years ago, he proved himself a particularly cap able organiser and manager. His ser vices, as a humorous singer, have fre quently been given for charity, and his popularity am...

Rees Miller Lodge. The Rees Miller Lodge held their fortnightly meeting on Wednesday, January 3. There was a fair attend ance, Bro. Dickins presiding. Let ters were read from Corporal F. J. Taylor, at sea; and also from Corporal E. Stainsby, in a convalescent camp at Dareham, England. After stating how well he had been treated, Cor poral Stainsby said h, had visited an old church in the district over 700 years old, which had a vault contain ing the bodies of people buried hun dreds of years ago. It is not used now as a church. "About four miles from here," he says, "is Corf Castle, a place which took Oliver Cromwell three years to get; parts of it are still stand ing." He had met many members of the G.U.O.O.F. in England, and con cluded by saying he expected to soon be able to .return to duty, and sending his regards to all A wife is called the. better half be cause she usually gets the best of the other half.

Tram Smash Inquiry Must Be Wide and Thorough.—Many Aspects and Angles of Tragic Happening to be Examined by Coroner. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Tram Smash Inquiry Must Be Wide and Thorough.-Many Aspects and Angles of Tragic Happening to be Examined by Coroner. Overshadowing everything, the tram bolt at Burwood, near the end of the Swan-street track, has been the subject of much discussion this week. How could such a tragic hap pening occur? Master-minds of tramway construction and manage ment had believed that the precau tions had been so perfected that, theoretically, such an accident was impossible. In practice, the plans of the engineers and the reckonings of the management have been inade quate to guard against such a dire calamity. Why. The human automa ton had also to come into action. Was it or the tramway equipment at fault. A coronial inquiry into the death of Clarence Handson-the boy who was killed in the smash-will have full power to sift the evidence of not only the motorman, the con ductor, the passengers, the eye-wit nesses, but also the opinions of the highest tramway authorities in the land, who have been sp...

Boosting Australia FORBES MAN IN PERSIA. SHEEP THAT PASS IN THE NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 13 January 1917
Boosting Australia FORBES MAN IN PERSIA..-; SHEEP THAT PASS -IN THE NIGHT. Sapper Jack Miller, f6rmerly a telegraph operator in Forbes.-post olrice, and now with the Australian wireless squadron in ilesopotamia, has written regarding some of his experiences. "If afternoon shadows were a lit tie more exaggerated I would be able Lo head this epistle 'In the Shade of the Persian Mountains.' Further than that 1 am not allowed to par ticularise regarding our location. The censor might also permit me to say that we are camped on the Persian side of the river., On three open siies we are shdltered by barbed wire entanglements, ditches, tren ches, and mud walls, with machine guns and howitzers in great profu sion. Each man sleeps on his rille with 150 rounds of anmmunition for a pillow. That soflds bloodthirsty, doesn't it, but as far as I can see a feiiow might as- well have no- bed mate and no pillow.
