THE PROPER SPIRIT. CO-OPERATION AND COMRADESHIP BETWEEN EMPLOYES AND EMPLOYERS. WORKERS AT KNITTING MILLS HAVE NOTABLE PICNIC. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
' HE PROPER SPIRIT. CO-OPERATION AND COMRADE SHIP BETWEEN EMPLOYES AND EMPLOYERS. WORKERS AT KNITTING MILLS HAVE NOTABLE PICNIC. Employes of the Australian Knit ting Mills, Stewart-street, Richmond, held their annual picnic under the happiest auspices last Friday. A special train conveyed the picnickers t. the trysting-ground at Frankston. where everything had been put in readiness for the convenience, enjoy ment and comfort of the large gather ing. In many respects it was a model picnic. The employes were the guests of the firm, not the firm as the guests of the employes. It was a reversal of the usual order of other rrade pic. nics. Each employe received invita tion tickets for railway, luncheon and tea. Liberal prizes for the sport. programme were presented by the firm, by individual directors, or by the chief works-managers. Male married employes received invitation tickets for their wives and children under 10 years of age, and former employes of the firm were also inclu ded in...

SHEEP ON FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
SHEEP ON FARMS. Australia is the greatest sheep producing country in the world. The natural conditions are specially fa vorable, and the skill and enterprise of the agriculturists and pastoralists have made the flocks of the continent the largest and the most distinguished for superior qualities. It was for the merino sheep that the climatic con ditions were found to be specially suitable, and consequently flocks of this unrivalled breed were first gen erally established, and by methods of breeding and intelligelit manage ment unequalled, in any other coun try they were brought up to that high standard of quality which has been long demonstrated by the position of Australian wool in the markets of the world. The merino sheep, celebrated for its fine wool, found in the natural pastures of Australia and the open grazing possible under the genial climate condifions favoring its re quirements, and during a long per iod in which markets for mutton were limited other breeds received littl...
WHAT OUR FIGHTING LADS NEED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
WHAT OUR FIGHTING LADS NEED. We'd be glad of some eatables-cof fee or choc, Or if you prefer it some nice almond rock; Then something to read, just to while away spells, As we lie in the trenches and listen to shells. We'd be glad of a wool cap, or socks, say a pair, Or anything warm that a fellow could wear; Because in the winter the winds, we are told, Are terribly bitter and awfully cold. Something to amuse, such as cards or a game, For the lads at- the front who are making a "name," A mouth-organ-ah! some of these would be fine To accompany the Huns in the "Wacht am Rhine." Be the articles many, or should they be few, We'll be ever so grateful while fight ing for you. -Perth "Sunday Times."

OPEN COLUMN. QUARRY TIP CHARGE RESENTED. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
OPEN COLUMN, QUARRY TIP CHARGE RESENTED. (To the Editor.) Sir,-Richmond Council must be after all the money they can get ho'd of. Local carriers and carters have for years been allowed to cart and tip filling in at the South Richmond quar rie'. With many others, I had imag ined that it would be in the interests of the public to have these worked-out quarries and useless holes filled in as speedily as possible. That, however, cannot be so. The counril has now put a tax upon us of 1/- a load if there is the least sign of tin or metal in the load. Why. I do not know. under stand the destructor will not take such loads. Yours, etc., "RATEPAYER and CARTER."

A BALLAD OF DUCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
SA BALLAD OFl DUCKS. The railway rattled and roared and swung With jolting carriage ..and bumping trucks; The sun, like a billiard red ball, hung In the western sky; and the tireless tongue Of the wild-eyed man in the corner told This terrible tale of the days of old And the party that ought to have kept the ducks. "Well, it ain't all joy bein' 'on the Sland,' With an overdraft that'd knock .you fiat; And the rabbits have pretty well took command; But the hardest thing for a man to stand Is the feller who says, 'Well, I told you so; You should ha' done this way, don't you know' I could lay a bait-for a man-like that. "The grasshoppers struck us in nine ty-one, And what they leave-well, it ain't de luxe; But a growlin', fault-findin' son of a gun Who'd lent some money to stock our run I- said' they'd eaten what grass we had Says he, 'Your management's very bad; You had a right to have kept some ducks.'
