FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
FOOTBALL. Cricket is now practically over, and in a week or two the more exciting game of football will be all the rage. Locr.l interest is centred in the prospects of the Richmond Football Club, which, by all accounts, is going to do big things this season Secretary Lolise seems to be just the man for the position. When he had charge of Beverley he made things hum. and we all know how the Bevs came to the front. The same energy is charac terising his efforts in regard to the senior club, and if the R.F.C. does' not take a leading position ere the season has far advanced it will not he "Billy's" fault. He's like the | football itself, always on the bounce [ here, there, and everywhere, only unlike the football, he doesn't rest, but is off again trying to pounce upon some likely acquisitioh to the team. Richmond Football Club has perhaps this year the best committee ever it had. and the result should manifest itself later on. The en larged ground and new grand stand (now approaching ...

A NATURAL SUNDIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
A NATURAL SUNDIAL. What is said to be me largest sun dial in the world is formed by nature' in the Aegean Sea. It is a veritable clock, the hand ot which is formed by the shadow of a promontory which rises three thousand feet above - the water. Near by are a number o£ small islands, and these are touched, one after another, by the pointed shadow. These islands are equal distances apart, and are touched by the shadow hand exactly on the hour. It may be added that sundials are said to be very incorrect timekeepers, but the difference between a sundial and the v" Greenwich time never exceeds sixteen minutes and a half.
Victoria Street [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
Victoria Street It's a pity that Victoria Street (or as it is commonly called Simpson's road) has not a few more energetic spirits like Mr R. Rossborough. He is always on the move for the the progress of the district, but does not receive the support he should- Being a boundary road. -Victoria-street is, so to speak, " no man's . land" Pollingwood can [shift the responsibility on to Rich mond, and Richmond can shift it on to Collingwood. If it were not for Mv Rossborougli, John Allison, Crs Hell, Street and Flevill. and a few others, the place wonld be in a much worse stale than it is, and certainly it is at the present time no credit to either city. In a letter to the Council on Monday evening Mr Rossborougli bombarded that body with a peppery epistle in which he dilated on the nuisance caused by the North wind dust fiend in blowing dust, leaves, papers and debris of all sorts from the numerous side streets into the shops on the Richmond side, and in his naive humorous style wound ...
HOW TO JUDGE CLASSICAL MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
HOW TO JUDGE CLASSICAL. MUSIC. By Our Cynic. There is a very simple method by which-oven -the greatest sceptic may ascertain whether a piece of music is good, bad or indifferent. It is as follows. If the music goes, "One, two, three, hop, hop, hop," or "one, ! wo, three, bum, bum, bum," you may Jepend upon it that you are listening 10 unmitigated rubbish. But when you hear music which sounds as i though a number o£ well-arranged | notes were stuck into a barrel and * energetically stirred about like a sort ? ul harmonious oatmeal porridge, then I you may assume that it is a fugue, I and at once compose your features ; into an expression of profound inter est. If, on listening to the music, you fancy the notes are dropping acciden tally on the floor, and from time to time asserting themselves again in a quiet, dreamy sort of way, then the I-iece is probably a nocturno, and noc turnos, as you are aware, are very high-class music indeed. When the notes seem to arrive in truck-loads, an...

A GUARDED REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
A GUARDED REPLY. It has frequently been noted that the New Englander is \eiy o.v.r.ious in his language, and that he rarely gives a direct answer to a question. A gentleman said to a friend whose ? family were not noted for very active habits "Was not youi father's death very sudden ?° Slowly drawing one hand from his pocket and pulling down his beard, the interrogated cautiously replied **vVaal, rather sudden for him." No man ever forgave a woman for knowing more than lie, and the inoie knowledge the greater the indignation, i At an inn in the country the landlord lias a sign posted up outside his door, " Good beer lor sale here, bat don't take my word for it." . . .
On Public Speakers. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 4 April 1914
On Public Speakers. Arnold Bennett, the English novel ist, condemned at a dinner the aver age public speech. "But unconsciously," said Mr. Ben nett, "the former chairman of a vil lage caucus condemned the public speech much more effectively than I could ever do when he arose in a somewhat disorderly meeting and re marked: "Listen, gentlemen, listen. I am not going to make a speech. I've got something to say." A short cut is often a wrong cut.
