WHAT THEY TALK ABOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
WHAT THEY TALK ABOUT. When I get back; what I'm going to do; what we did at school, and how our mother used to look after us; what our father used to say, and what our girl did, and how we met her and we wonder who's kissing her now.--A Soldier in France. "Friday is my unlucky day," said the washerwoman in the slum. "You have omitted to mention the other six," :said- the man who :knew that there are no lucky days for those who are imprisoned in the slums.-"Worker." . Doctor: Your mother-in-law must go immediately to a warm climate. HInlepQk: .Certainly, doctor. W ?ill you lerform the operatlon? " .
"Nitchavo." RUSSIA OF LAISSEZ-FAIRE. THE IMPOSSIBLE HAPPENS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
"Nitchavo." RUSSIA OF LAISSEZ-FAIRE. THE IMPOSSIBLE HAPPENS. (By Helen Jerome in Sydney "Sun.") And so the Russian of my acquaint ance, he of the uvultitudinous gar ments, which, like his Chiine'breth ren, he sewed on himself at the com mencement of that tragic winter of Itheirs, and removed only at the end, leaving intact and undisturbed (ex cept by an occasional manual remon strance) the various small immigrants which would take possession of the field; has revolted! And one more stage in the onward march of the race Sis now accomplished. Is it really true, then, that one can only believe the incredible? If you had wandered with me through the inner horror of the Petrograd streets during the period of the Russo-Japan ese war, and seen the look of bestial misery and despair upon the faces of the congregated beggars and the hu man driftwood that furtively came out of its slimy caverns only at night, you might have held up a warning hand and reflected about probabilities! Especially ...
TOP O' THE MORNING. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
TOP O' THE MORNING. Top o' the Morning's shoes are off; He runs in the orchard, rough, all day; Chasing the hens for. a furn: at the trough, Fighting the "cows for a place. at the hay; With a coat where the Wiltshire mud . has dried, With' brambles caught in his mane Sand: tail- . Top o' the Morning, pearl and pride Of the foremost flight of the White Horse Vale! The master he carried is Somewhere in France Leading a cavalry troop to-day, Ready, if Fortune but give him a chance, Ready as ever to show them the way; Riding as straight to his 'new de sire As ever he rode to the line bf old, Facing his fences of blood and fire With a brow of flint and a heart of gold. Do the hoofs of his horse wake a dream Of a tramping crowd at the covert-side, Of a lead on the grass and.a glinting stream . . And Top o' the Morning's shorten ing stride? Does the triumph leap to his shining eyes As the wind of the vale on-his . cheek blows cold, Anl the buffeting big brown shoul :tders rise To his light...

FALLEN AMONG AMATEUR NURSES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
FALLEN AMONG AMATEUR NURSES. "Mrs. Dill-Binkie was wearing the shortest of skirts, and the tallest of heels, the kind whose click is so par ticularly soothing to the suffering, and with something at her waist that look ed like a rosary, only it wasn't a rosary, but the very latest thing in bridge-markers at the end of a chain. "And on her head she wore a fetch ing snow-white veil, one of the sort that flops in the soup and catches in the door, but makes them all look like amateur nuns. Though, of course, they aren't nuns, but just minister ing angels who love to sit by the bedside of the suffering and stroke their hair and wash their faces and coo For, according to Maria, the science of nursing consists entirely in stroking the sufferer's hair or washing his face ..... 'Amateur nurses,' she explained, 'have so much more real feeling. They have a common one to do the work.' . . . . "The only convalescent who so far had come, and that by mistake it turned out, declared to the common o...
THE EXILE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
*THE EXILE. Here,.by the bronze 'neath his ample -sombrero, . Here, by the way that he walks in his spurs, Whether or. not a Gallipoli hero, Goes a true bushman, and bred in the burrs! Lonely a little ina packed Piccadilly, Weary for red lands that reel in the sun; Weary for water-bag; quart-pot and billy, Campfire and creek when the day's work is done. - Weary for pack-saddle, pine-log and bluey, Weary for hiorse-bells that clink in the, bend; .icady. to wheel at the hint of a -- coo-ee, S:.Sure that the greeting must come from a friend. Lost in the crowds of the street and the alley, Rather I dream of him, child of the plains, Riding alone at the back of Toorale, Dust on his stirrups and foam on his reins. Friend of the sunlight and silent grey spaces, Friend of the brolgas that dance on the sand, One with the world of brave hearts and brown faces,. •One with his fierce, unforgettable - land ': --Will Ogilvie in the "British Australasian."
Clean Adventure Dramas at the Crown.—Thrills, Excitement and Sentiment. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Clean Adventure Dramas at the Crown--Thrills, Excitement and Sentiment. Charlie's Picnic should delight the children at the Crown matinee this afternoon. It is a Chaplin revue. Boots and Saddles, a Moss feature, will also be unreeled. Big stories of the open air will flash unon the Crown screen on Thursday. They are A Knight of the Ranges and Val Paul in The Fire of the Lost Lake. Both are pictures of interest and incident, which grip the attention of audiences. That popular pair Harold Lockwood and May Allison will be seen on Thursday in The Comeback. It is an other of the successes achieved by this combination who play so well to gether. Pleasingly contrasted is A Circus Romance. Muriel Ostriche is seen at her best in this fine drama of the glamor of spangles and the saw dust ring. The Lennox-street Presbyterian con gregation will this year ce'ebrate its diamond jubilee. Snecial services and meetings will take place from June 10 to 19. Next f:Sunday the annual anni versary service...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Ladies' Letter. The new materials threaten to be particularly expensive this season. Many well-known houses are asking as much as 19/- a yard for fabrics suitable for coats and skirts. This seems almost ruinous; yet new coats and skirts or coat dresses are a ne cessity if one desires to be up to date. The skirt of last year is so dreadfully tight that few will care to make reappearance in it without some alteration. And the question is: "How can this be done?" There is hardly ever any material left over from a coat and skirt, and the idea of alterations does not appeal to the average woman. It is possible to make a skirt flare by adding long V shaped pieces on either side, but no one would be deluded into thinking that the dress was a new one, even if this were neatly done. The low-cut neck is still with us, and the decollete throat will again be a feature of the year. Small odds and ends will give distinctive touches. Buttons will be seen from throat to hem, either in the form of d...
No Prizes Needed for 'Ballers to Help the Nation's Cause—Old Management of Richmond Club Re-elected Without Opposition. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
No Prizes Needed for 'Bailers to Help the Nation's Cause-Old Manage ment of Richmond Club Re-elected Without Opposition. Few peoule are eager to serve on a Football Club management in these times. A change has come over the scene. There will be no election for nff~e-heqrers of the Richmond Foot ball Club this year. As was the case last year, just the right number of en thusiasts have come forward to give service. There is, however, a change in the disposition of the management. Mr. W. Lohse has retired from the po sition of hon. secretary, but will re main on the committee. Mr. W. May bury, formerly chairman of commit tee, is the new secretary. A committee meeting was held on Tuesday night, when consideration was given to the balance sheet and annual report. It will be sent out to the 424 last years' financial members at the end of next week. Other de cisions unanimously agred upon at the mee~ing were a donation of £100 to the Richmond branch of the Red Cross Society, and election o...
Richmond Children Score at State Schools Carnival—Only Yarra Park and Central Represented. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Richmond Children Score at State S:.hools Carnival-Only Yarra Park and Central Represented, Highly creditable, considering that only two local schools were repre sented, was the showing Richmorid made at the annual carnival of the Victorian S.S. Swimming Association held at the St. Kilda Baths on Mon ray. Children from Yarra Park and Central competed with good results, but the four other schools did not send any children. The omission seems a pity. In view of the enter prise shown and the success achieved in the teaching of swimming in this city, it is a mistake that an effort was not made by the other four schools. Saltwater always proves a handi cap to the children from the inland suburbs. Fortunately, on. this occa sion there were no waves, only a slight swell, and Central and Yarra Park boys and girls proved them .-elves. Yarra Park again carried off the life-saving championship, with Central School second. It was a not able feat, for there were ten teams cjompeting from all par...

Swimming Club for Men is New Movement—Charlie Merrick Calls Meeting at His Home on Monday Week. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Swimming Club for Men is New Movement-Charlie Merrick Calls Meeting at His Home on Monday Week. Recognised as the most active away from-the-beach centre in the encour agement and practice of swimming, Richmond is yet without a men's swimming club. There is a ladies' club and various school clubs, but no association of male adults. Early morning dippers, with other regulars at the baths, now propose?the estab lishment of such an institution. Mr. .Charles Merrick, who has proved his organising capacity in- connection with movements at St. Ignatius' Church and with the Richmond Row ing Club, is at the head of the new movement. He points out that with every physically fit schoolboy a swimmner. as is the case in this city. there is foundation for a strong club. He does not think it rirht that Rich mrod chould have to wait for a big carnival until the Royal Life Saving Society Erreiously con'iders to come along. Further, he points out that it was a condition of entry for events at the Lif...

SAM THE SPRUCER. How He Deals with the Amateur Strategist. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
SAM THE SPRUCER. How He Deals with the Amateur Strateglst. By F. W. Thomas. "That deep line you see in the gravel just in front of our seat," said Sam, "is not a trench. That is the plan and elevation of the British front on the Somme, done by me with the end of my crutch. It is also the plan of Mackensen's advance, of the battle in the Carso, and the Karsino, of the retreat in the Dobrudger, the Allied front line at Salonica, and any thing else you can think of. It is also the plan of that great naval battle that was never fought off the Isle of Dogs, and shows admirably the line of retreat taken by Wellington at Victoria-or was it Charing Cross? Some big station, I know. "I have drawn that line day by day as a means of answering the various fat-headed questions about the war that I get fired at me as I sit here. If I'm convalescent much longer I shall apply for a chin-strap to my cap to rest my bottom jaw on. "First it's a dear old lady. Wants to know how long I think it's going t...
Whiskers to Order. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Whiskers to Order. He was new and nervous, and al. though he had been in the Fakem Furniture Stores for over a week, it seemed as though he would never master the business; When asked for door-mats he offer ed hearthrugs. He didn't know Sher. aton was the name of a man or a li. queur. And, even in conversation, he. always got hopelessly tangled about the weather. As a buxom dame bounced into the shop, he advanced anxiously, his fingers grasped .in front of him. She. asked for a chiffonier, and he conducted her to the bassinet depart ment. The dame grew :very angry, and said she would report him. But he apologised so abjectly that. she decided to overlook the offence and give him another chance. "Please tell me," was:her next or der, "what has become of .those love. ly Sideboards you had last week?" The young man blushed and falter ed as he replied: "I'm-I'm sorry; ma'am, but I've shaved: 'eiri off!" The: youthful wife of a very absent, minded professor- was I stroking :her husband's...
From Various Sources. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
From Various Sources. The usurer's haven of rest inte-rest. The "Official Labor Party," as the "Win the Party War" advocates style themselves, has organised a "strafe" campaign against Prime Minister Hughes. "Strafe Billy Hughes" is the election cry, and it is whispered the official loet of the Official Labor Party has been commanded to write a "Hymn of Hate" for the occasion. Hate of heart, and hate of hand, Hate on sea, hate on land, Hate at morn, hate at night Hate in darkness, hate in light, Hate of head, hate of heel, Hate to make the hated squeal; Hate to shrivel up the thews Of the hated Billy Hughes. -Launceston "Courier."

Godsons and Godmothers A FRENCH WAR DEVELOPMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Godsons and Godmotherps A FRENCH WAR DEVELOPMENT. What he terms "one of the few really beautiful things to which this war has given birth" is the subject of a descriptive article by M. Arno Dosch-Fleurot, in the "New York Herald." In the course of it he says: It was discovered a year or so ago that many of the soldiers who had been given permission to go home were in the unfortunate position of having 'no homes. Many were from the invaded provinces, and leave of absence simply added to their tor tured thoughts. Others were from the colonies. So, out of beginnings which are rather obscure, has grown up this national idea of godsons and godmothers. To go to a railroad sta tion to meet a strange hero from the front, of whom one knows nothing ex cept that he writes a nice letter-it is an adventure. It means, also, that men and women meet on a basis of friendship which would not ordinar ily occur. I know a woman who has ten god sons. It keeps her busy sending them things to the front and...
Power of the Ukase. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Power of the Ukase. Everybody makes laws in Russia, and each is a law unto himself. For instance, the Minister of the Interior has the right to make them, so has the Minister of Finance, and-the Min ister of Justice, and the Minister of Foreign. Affairs, and the head of the Police Department and his subordin ates, down to the gorodovoi at the corner of the. street. In fact, anybody who wears the uniform of Czardom is empowered to make laws for his spe cial branch of the business. There fore let no man say that Russia is a land without law! And yet she is the most lawless land in the world. The solution of the paradox is to be found in the fact that Russia is governed by the Czar and the Czar governs the ukase. The question then arises What is the ukase? The ukase is a decree having the force of law and transcending all laws. There is no limit to the obedience demanded by the ukase. It recognises no bounds to human possibility, and accepts no explanations of failure. The Czar gives h...
Birdwood's Boys WINTERED ON THE SOMME. TROOPS WELL CARED FOR. DIFFICULTIES OVERCOME. London, January 19. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Birdwood's Boys WINTERED ON THE SOMME. TROOPS WELL CARED FOR. DIFFICULTIES OVERCOME. (By Special Representative of the Sydney "Sun.") London, January 19. Our five divisions are not yet all tog~riter, though no one doubts they would fight better if grouped into one army corps, shoulder to shoulder. General Monash's baby division is far north of the Somme, near Armen tieres. The Germans know this well. They knew it as soon as the division marched in, and they have been tak ing full advantage, dusting up these raw warriors to such an extent that already "The Thirds" have earned their place in the line, and choked the gibes and laughter of their more hard ened brothers. While spending the long summer at Salisbury Plain, in mock trenches and in inglorious safe ty, "The Thirds" were the subject of scorn-some of it bitter. Older divi sions could not forget that they had had no such prolonged training, and that while they were going "through" the Somme three times the Plain car ried fully s...
