CRIMINALS LIKE POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

CRIMINALS LIKE POETRY. Criminals are notoriously fond of poetry. That is what they' read by preference when serving time. And they are fond of writing verses, gener ally of a sentimental kind, often full of self-pitying pathos, for real crim inals nearly always look upon their deeds as the result of the force of circumstances. Soleilland, the mur derer, called his crimes a misfortune. Anastay wrote: "You understand that I have been the plaything of circum stances." Vidal, the slayer of peas ant women, wrote that he was "funda mentally good and incapable of hurt ing a fly." Eugene Nolent, commenting on a re cent book by Raymond Hesse, the -great French criminal lawyer, on the literature of criminals, says: "This fondness of criminals for poetry may perhaps be explained by the fact that poetry enables one better than prose to express the ardor of his passions. For that reason these works always bear the imprint of the 'Me' and fol low the author's sentiments with most romantic. grandi...

Church Street Tramway Again Pigeon-holed.—Present Not the Time for Such Expenditure, Declares Prahran Council. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

Church Street Tramway Again Pigeon-holed. - Present Not the Time for Such Expenditure, De clares Prahran Council. The movement to secure the con struction of an electric tramway from Clifton Hill, via Church-street, Rich mond, to Prahran, is not likely to bear fruition while the war continues. A reyised report on the cost of such a tramway increases the estimate for capital expenditure and operating costs. The Richmond Council is still prepared to support the construction of the tramway, but the Prahran Council has called a halt. The last named council has forwarded an opin ion to the Richmond Council that while Prahran favored the extension of tramways for the purpose of link ing up contiguous districts, and es pecially the construction of such, a line as the one under view, the time is inopportune at present to proceed with the project. _____________

Richmond Boys to Form Brass Band—Novel Proposal Should Prove a Success. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

Richmond Boys to Form Brass Band -Novel Proposal Should Prove a Success. Proposals to establish a junior band in Richmond should meet with a ready response from boys and their parents. The idea is a novel one, but if it is taken up enthusiastically should develop into a useful and pleasing institution. The idea of be longing to a real brass band will de light the boyish heart, and it may prove the means of discovering more than a little talent. Ten years will be the minimum age for members of,the band, and the only expense parents will be put to will be in providing instruments. Instruction will be provided free by Mr. J. F. Dya mond, secretary of the Richmond City Band, who has had 27 years experience of work of this nature. He is bandmas ter of the Victorian Police Band. Long discussion took place at the last committee meeting of the Rich mond City Band, and it was decided that i. was impossible to form a learn ers' class in conjunction with the City Band on-account of the conditi...

Interesting Address Given to Burnley W.C.T.U.—House Built for Soldier Who Becomes a Teetotaller. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

Interesting Address Given to Burn- ley W.C.T.U.- House Built for Sol- dier Who Becomes a Teetotaller. Meeting in the Presbyterian Church, Burnley-street, on March 20, members of the local branch listened with interest to an address by Mrs. Helen Barton. She is lecturing and touring in Australia in the prohibi- tion cause under the auspices of the union. Mrs. Barton mentioned that during her 10 days' stay in New South Wales she had had the pleasure of opening 30 branches of the W.C.T.U. and pinning the blue ribbon upon 1004 new members. That augured well for the progress of the move- ment. She mentioned that members in New South Wales had built a cot- tase on a fine piece of land which contained an orchard. The house had been presented to a returned wounded soldier, the only condition being that he and his wife and chil- dren should promise that no intoxi- cating liquor should be used within its walls. This had been readily agreed to.

Playing Football Last Year, Richmond Club Paid in £99 to Patriotic Funds—Annual Meeting Next Tuesday Night at Cricket Pavilion. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

Playing Football Last Year, Richmond Club Paid in £99 to Patriotic Funds --Annual Meeting Next Tuesday Night at Cricket Pavilion. Though the second "war" season report and balance sheet of the Rich- mond Football Club is an unpreten- tious little sheet, it contains much of interest to members. Credit is taken for the fact that Richmond was one of the four League clubs to continue the playing of the game. "That they suc- ceeded against very adverse condi- tions and kept the football flag flying to the very end will be acknowledged by all, and the fact that Richmond was one of the four clubs that kept League football from sinking into oblivion dur- ing 1916 will, in the years to come when our grand winter game is again being played under normal conditions, be remembered with pride by mem- bers and supporters of the Yellow and Black," is one of the statements in the report. The same enthusiasm was not manifested by a majority of club members, the membership roll falling from 2200 to 42...

UNDER THE UNION JACK Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

UNDER THE UNION JACK Continued. Sapper J. R. Pollock, with the Light Horse in Egypt, writes to his mother, Mrs. Pollock, librarian, at Richmond Town Hall:-"We have been across the border of Egypt into Palestine. When day broke, all the land was under a two-inch crop, and the change from white sand to brilliant green was wonderful. Even the eternal palm-trees gave place to big fig and other trees. The change was very wel come. It took us a night's march of 30 miles to get there, and though ter ribly stiff and tired, a victory over the Turks compensated us for all that. I was on a signal station with two other chaps, and after the fight, as it was pitch dark, and the country full of Bedouins and Arabs, we did not rel ish our position. The corporal in charge went back for instructions. He failed to return. We decided to go back on our own. The enemy were sending reinforcements, and, as we knew our men had nearly 2000 pri soners to get back, we had to hurry some. We got the direction by...

Richmond Council's Attitude on Preference to Soldiers — Ambiguous Motion by Councillor Strahan. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 31 March 1917

Richmond Council's Attitude on Pre ference to Soldiers - Ambiguous Motion by Councillor Strahan. Richmond Council on Monday pass ed a by-law fixing stands in certain streets of the city for street hawkers and itinerant traders dealing in food stuffs A motion by Cr. Kemp, seconded by Cr. George, that in the allotment of stands, preference be given to return ed soldiers and sailors, provoked a warm discussion. Cr. Strahan (Labor) contended that there were other people quite as much entitled to special consideration as soldiers. A man who raised a large family in these times was doing as much for Australia as the man at the front. He moved as an amendment that preference be given to returned soldiers and sailors, to any person who had been engaged in war services in the mercantile marine, to persons who had volunteered and been reject ed, to those ineligible for service, and to those rearing families of five chil dren or more. This amendment, which was sup ported by all the Labor membe...

THE QUALITIES OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917

THE QUALITIES OF WATER. A medical authority appraises the value of water thus-"For fully fit teen years I. have been impressed with the thought that the majority of people, sick or well, drink an in sufficiency of water. I would advise the establishment of the water-drink ing habit on the part of children from the beginning, through life. And as each year passes I have been more and more convinced of the correct ness of this position. It is the uni versal observation that thin people are scant water-drinkers, and a change of habit in this regard often results in an improvement quite mani fest. Then, again, I have observed that the fat and well-fed-looking ones are uniformly liberal water-drinkers We have in this evidence of the fact that a free supply of water improves nutrition. Furthermore, the one who does not drink water:often has a dark, swarthy, so-called bilious complexion, inactivity of secretion, manifested in the appearance of the face; whereas the water-drinker has a clea...

SYMPATHY AS A CURE. Everyone knows the comfort little people derive frcm a kiss on tih bruised spot, a lcving pat, soft and soothing, on the - umped head. Even folk of greater growth are not proof against such sympathetic alleviations ,of their pain of body or mind. A tender little bit of human nature is that told by. Gilbert Watson in "Three Rolling Stones in Japan." The author visited a temple where one of the big stone gods was supposed to heal all bodily hurts. "'How does he work his cures?' asked I. " 'B- personal contact. Rub the place yo:u wish healed with the same hand you have rubbed him. If we wait we will be sure to see someone try it.' "No one came for a long time, save one old woman, who laid a little bunch of flowers between the feet of the image in gratitude, doubtless, for restoration from disease. By and by a shrill, childish cry made us turn. A little girl had fallen and hurt herself; the little knee had bruised itself against the sharp corner of an un even flagsto...

A DANGEROUS MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917

A DANGEROUS MAN. Rev. Edward Lloyd Jones, a Man chester minister, tells a story of his experience in Fenian days. He was travelling from a Welsh village to Brecon, and had with him a strong wooden box filled with heavy theolo gical books. At Shrewsbury the de tectives, who were on the look-out for explosive machines and the like, sus pected this heavy box. and word was sent on to Brecon. When the young minister stepped out of the train he was astonished to find a sergeant and several constables awaiting him. "I think you have a box with you?" said the sergeant. "Quite right," said the preacher, who began to scent a joke. Out came the box, and. its weight excited fesh suspicion aibout its con tents. "This is your box?" "Yes." "It contains ammunition?" "It does." "Very well. Consider yourself in charge. Open the box." The company stood away while the lid was cautiously wrenched off. When the sergeant found it containing no thing more explosive than Adam Clarke's "Theology" he expresse...
