Waste of Energy. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

Waste of Energy. "Angry?" exclaimed the young man. "Of course I'ih angry. It seems to me what we need in this world is some system of general thought trans ference of mind reading. You know how hard I worked to get Margaret; gave all my waking thoughts to the subject, neglected my business, went off my food, wrote poetry, and made an ass of myself generally." "But you succeeded?" "Oh, yes, we're engaged; and now that we have exchanged confidences I find that she was working just as hard to get me as I was to get her, and when I think of the waste of ef- I fort I get tired."

The Green Silk Stockings [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

The Green Silk Stockings By Edmond M'Kenna in the "New York Post." From my seat in the elevated train I first saw the Green Silk Stockings." I was on my way to the office in the morning. One of those psychic jolts that suddenly make casual things ap-. pear significant struck me, and. I rea lised that a pair of green silk stock ings had hung in that tenement win dow every day for seven months-as long as I had been riding to business on that line. How much longer I had no means of knowing, but I somehow come to believe that they must have been hung there every morning for a very long time-there is such a look about habitual things. At first I named the girl Flossie. 1 fancied her to have red hair, ' wide blue eyes, a nose whitish at the point in winter and freckled in summer, and that kind of thin, cold, pink ear that goes with red hair. I think it was because I saw that kind of ear so plainly in my mind's eye that I began to add the other features to match till I finally made up Flos...

Papa's Picture-Hanging. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

Papa's Picture-Hanging. "Mother," asked little Monty, "did you hear the step-ladder when it tum bled over in the sitting-room?" "No, dear," said the mother. "I hope papa didn't fall." "Not yet; he's still clinging to the picture moulding!" The barrister was, in the judge's. private opinion, simply wasting the time of the court, and, in the course of a long-winded speech, he dwelt on the appearance of certain bags con nected with the case. "They might," he went on, pom pously, "they might have been full. bags, or they might have been half. filled bags, or they might have been empty bags, or--" "Or perhaps;" drily interpolated. the judge, "they might have been wind bags!" "Father, what do they mean- by gentlemen farmers?" - "Gentlemen farmers, my son, are farmers who seldom raise anything except their hats." "Does your husband subscribe to the theory that kissing transmits germs ?" "No. He thinks that germs are mostly transmitted by money, and is very careful not to hand me any." "You...

CRICKET. RICHMOND v. ESSENDON. (First Elevens.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

CRICKET. RICHMOND v. ESSENDON. (First Elevens.) This match, the last of the sea son, was commenced on Saturday last at the Punt-road ground. Rich mond's captain, winning the toss, elected to bat. A bad start was made, Allan, Stewart, Richardson, Lovie and Gooley losing their wickets very cheaply. Leo. Rush, however, kept up his end and, becoming associated with Tom Bayliss, an excellent stand was made for the eighth wicket. In 45 minutes of brilliant batting by both players, 100 runs were added to the score. Rush just missed the cen tury. He was at 99 when he got his leg in front to a ball from Carroll. Bayliss made 57 not out. The total for the innings was 230. Essendon has 78 runs 'on the board for the loss of one wicket. The match will be continued to-day. Scores: RICHMOND.

GOOD FISHING. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

GOOD FISHING. One of the best-known, ship's offi cers on the Australian coast can tell enough good stories to fill a volume. lie has been all over the world in wind-jammers, tramps, and modern greyhounds, and is a hard case. He tells of one amusing experience on the coast of Africa. The captain of the schooner had undertaken to share with the mates and the crew the pro fits he made out of his trading in port. When he paid over his part ners were not satisfied, that he had disgorged all their share. The cap tain w ent into his cabin and locked himself in. The men outside the door bethought themselves of a sky light, and one of them, clambering up, saw the skipper with a bottle and a pile of notes in front of him. He watched until the spirit had done its work. Meanwhile, a scheme had been concocted. Presently a string was dropped down with a piece of putty attached to the end of it. The face of the .putty was oiled, and as fast as it fell on a note, almost as fast the paper money was ...

TUFTS OF TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

TUFTS OF TURF. They passed off all right at the Valley. But it's a real buster to-day. Epsom races postponed. Caulfield Patriotio Gymkhana. Hooray for Mr. O'Reilly-o. Something was bound to happen with the Managing Director away. Here's Mr. Cox made a fine box-up of things with his Lady Anzac let down. Just fancy if -Mr. R. Kelly-Maitland had made such a mistake in connec tion with the Lou Robertson or E.A.C. horses in the days when he was king. What a yell! We all make mistakes. Billy Ken ny evidently made a bad one when he let them get- that battery on him. It's the old story of the pitcher that went too often to the well. It would bring memories of a not very long ago Mentone event to a punter by the Christian name of John. He didn't know at the time, either! -Ye, it's a rummy world.

WHAT DID I DO IN THE WAR? [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

WHAT DID I DO IN THE WAR? (Time: The future. Speaker: Old member of Parliament.) What did I do in the war, my son, what did I do in the war? Was I a swaddie behind a gun, was I a spiller of gore? Well, I can say that I did my bit, though I was never in France, Though by bullet I never was hit, sonny, I led 'em a dance. While in the trenches our lads fell fast, while they were blooding their steel, Up on th' Terrace I fought to the last, fought for a dinkum deal; I called the Speaker a thousand cows, not half did I ramp and roar, I led the van in those rorty rows, that's what I did in the war! What did I do in the war, my son, what did I do in the war? Here I was in the thick of the fun, ready to settle my score; Though I knew not a bit about drill, though I ne'er ventured a shot, Me and old Tommy an' Jack an' Bill-Cripes! but we gave it 'em hot. I held the trench for a sitting or so, with only a break for meals, I felt that warm enlivening glow that. only a hero feels; I called a co...

WORDS YOU'VE ALWAYS NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

W?ORDS YOU'VE ALWAYS . NEEDED. RAWP, n. 1. A reliably-unreliable person. 2. One who means well. 3. A kind of husband. RAW-PUS, a. 1. Dilatory. 2. Semi efficient. The rawp can be absolutely depend ed upon to forget to bring "that book" he borrowed and that now you need. Unreliable? Oh, you can depend upon him never to keep any engage ment promptly; you would so much rather that he would fail utterly then you would properly scorn and suppress him. But he does answer his letters- after a while. He does mail letters after they are sufficiently smooched and crumpled in his coat pocket. The rawp, just like the zobzib, is almost always late for the train, late enough at any time to give you a hygog. Ra-wpus is the clerk who makes er rors in his additions; the typewriter who spells "to" in three ways - all wrong-is also rawpus. "Did you get me that spool of red silk I asked you to this morning?" said Mrs. Smith. No, he forgot it. Mr. Smith is a rawp. "Did you ring up Green and tell him to s...

The hall was filled by abnout 600 persons, but that does not r,ýprcsent the size of Mr. Tudor's au diiPlce. A nation was in waiting to rcndl what he had to say.
