Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
Ladies' Letter. Marie Tempest will set .the fashion here. We shall have the Marie Teir pest hat, the Marie - Tempest coat, etc. - Especially do I expect the coat very speedily, for S?iss-Tempest: ivears a most notable wrap of the very lat .est vogue in "The Marriage of Kitty." The secret of her big success is that her clothes seem part of herself. You have the impression of beautiful frocking, but when you come to ana lyse it the memory left is of a har monious whole, not of any striking features or prominent details. This, we are told, is the acme of good dress ing. Clothes should seem to form part of one's personality. Miss Tem pest achieves it. The expected advent of a little stranger to Mr. George Armstrong Madame Melba's son-and his wife was looked forward to with delighted anticipation, but now all the hopes have been disappointed. The little one, born last week,- did not live to open eyes on the light of day. Much sympathy will be felt for- the mother and father, as this was ...
Great Snakes WAR-SPOILT INDUSTRY. PACKING REPTILES FOR GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
Great Snakes WAR-SPOILT INDUSTRY. PACKING REPTILES FOR GERMANY. Isaak Walton, out of his long ex perience, gave us the delights of the "Compleat Angler." Mr. Brazier, of this city, could, if he wished, give us at least the matter for a "Compleat Snake-Catcher," for he caught his first snake in 1854 somewhere be tween Berry's Bay and Blue's Point, where his grandfather's farm was lo cated. "Before the war," Mr. Brazier ex plains, "there was a regular snake in dustry. Germany was the best payer. They were sent generally through German sailors, who used to get from 30/- to £5 for black snakes, and 10/ for blue-mouthed lizards. They found a market not only at the Zoological Gardens at Berlin and other German cities, but also at chemical labora tories, where the poison was extract ed and used in the manufacture of permanganate of potash. "We used to have difficulty in get ting them aboard ships sometimes," the snake-catcher says, with a remi niscent twinkle of the eye. "They were regarde...
Hunting Emus. SPORT IN "OUT-BACK" QUEENSLAND. PLUMES FOR THE LIGHT HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
Hunting Emus. SPORT IN "OUT-BACK" QUEENSLAND. PLUMES FOR THE LIGHT HORSE. An interesting account is given in "Figaro," a Brisbane journal, of an emu hunt fn the Maranoa district. Men had-come several hundreds of miles to attend a meeting of the com mittee of the "outback" hospital. Graziers iwere in from far and near stations., All of them had sons at the front. The talk turned on the war. Mrs. Colonel Wilson had written to one of the graziers stating that her husband referred to the emu plumes of the' Queensland Light Horse hav ing become worn, and he asked for more to be sent to the front. The re quest became a welcome command. Carried by the ubiquitous bush tele phone, it had ready response. "A seat was found for me in a Tal bot car-'the pride of the West'-and we went south, dancing over black soil ruts. with 'hilarous joy, punctuated with staccato emphasis by the rear guard-myself. "Deepwater," our first place of call, is 24 miles from Roma. From here, after very velcome refresh...
The Last Ditchers. WILL GERMANY FIGHT TO THE DEATH? THE THREE GREAT FORCES OF RESISTANCE IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
The Last Ditchers. WILL GERMANY FIGHT TO THE DEATH? THE THREE GREAT FORCES OF RESISTANCE IN GERMANY. By Francis Gribble in "The Graphic." Olive branches appear to have got mixed with the shrapnel sometimes in recent German bombardments. Above the shriek of the shells we hear the voice of the Hun protesting that he will be reasonable, as he is strong, if only we will give him a chance, and will cheerfully surrender part of the swag if he is allowed to keep the rest of it. A corridor to the East; the lease of a Belgian port; these little douceurs are all that he insists upon. Surely we are going to meet so mod est a demand half-way! For, if not then follow the warnings and the threats. Then we must indeed look out for frightfulness. Sooner than yicld--sooner than see her militar ism in the melting-pot-Germany will fight literally to the death. All the men and all the women, and all the cats and all the dogs-as many of them, at any rate, as have not been boiled down to make soup-will f...
Guile. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
Guile. "Arthur," said little Mrs. Scrub shire. to her hubby, as they sat down to tea and muffins, "I'm really ashamed o Mrs. Smiff." "Indeed, pet." "Just because she found her hatpin had been used for cleaning out a pipe she flew into a terrible rage and kicked up an awful fuss." "Very wrong of her, my dear," re marked Scrubshire. "A woman who gives way to tem per in that fashion must expect to be treated in a similar manner when ever she does the least thing wrong," continued the lady. "Married folk should bear and forbear. I don't think you've ever known me angry when my hatpins have smelt of nicotine, Arthur?" Scrubshire did not think it worth while to probe his memory. He mere ly smiled across the table and won dered. When he went upstairs for his nightly shave, he was not in the least surprised to find a half-inch gap in his newest and best razor, and some chips from a lead-pencil lying on the dressing-table. And Arthur Scrubshire, good fellow that he was, forebore to chide and...
REMEMBRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
REMEMBRANCE. Now I am dead I would niot have you' come And plant sweet-scented .flowers.upon my:grave; . Truly I love them "often- "have I stood And watched you pluc t.em i in some fragrant .wood;:.: ... But these are not .the.-flowers I long for now. Go where the violets are, and- wild bees hum, And where the cowslips nod and fox gloves wave. There sit you down, and try-to .call to mind Some little thing I did you deemed kind; And I shall feel your kiss upon my brow. Battery A: I hear,:we are going to carry our -pistols 'i our belts. Battery' B: Just my luck. I wear suspenders.-"iun-Dial .. A succetsiul recruiting device was practised in Sydney by Light Horse men, who led spare horses through the streets, hung with. clothes inscrib ed: "Who will fill the saddle?" "Who is for a ride to victory?" and similar exhortations. Can you hear the bugle calling you from many a deathful plain: Fill the saddle, fill the saddle; who will mount and charge again? Who will show them that the rifle,...
From Various Sources. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
From Various Sources. "Wonmen is all right if you can keep 'em from marryin' yer."-"Bindle," by lI. Jenkins. John Boileau revives a yarn of the early days. On a certain St. Patrick's Day John acquired a drag and into it hustled all the parsons and priests who were broad minded enough to join in the festiv-iies of Ireland's great day. Afterwards he took them to dinner at the Australia Hotel;., Among them was a. Jewish Rabbi, and the conversationi. turning on the broadllindedness of ,goldfields -.clerics in thus sinking their sectarian :differ ences caused John to suggest to the Rabbi that as this was..a special oc casion he might overlook his Hebrew prejudices and have his dinner, of pork.

It Couldn't Be Helped. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
It Couldn't Be Helped. John Gilpin, the village grocer, and his better half were on a visit to their son and heir, and the weather turning out very bad Gilpin junior asked his parents to stay a few days. The worthy son the next morning (Sunday) invited his parents to the village church, where Gilpin senior thoroughly disgusted the congrega tion by joining in the singing, and chants with a voice which almost drowned the organ. Gilpin junior was furious. So after church he said: "Dad, I do hope when you come again to church you'll just sing a bit lower. Everybody in the church was giggling at you." '.It's all right, my son; it couldn't be 'elped," said. Gilpin senior, quite seriously. "You see, if I hadn't a highered my voice they'd a 'eard your mother." Gorling: Has your college education been of any practical value to you? Marks: You bet it has! If it wasn't for my experience in athletics i'd have to leave my house five minutes earlier every morning in order to catch the 7.58 train!...

Mr. E. J....
ON AND OFF THE FOOTBALL FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
ON AND OFF THE FOOTBALL FIELD. By "Pusher Up." There are indications that the pa- triotic funds will receive greater sup- port from football during the coming season than was the case last year. Six clubs have decided to put teams in the field. In addition to last sea- son's teams, Geelong and South Mel- bourne will play.

NOT FORGOTTEN. BURNLEY WELCOMES ITS BROKEN HEROES. DOROTHY BRUNTON'S SONG RINGS TRUE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
NOT FORGOTTEN. BURNLEY WELCOMES ITS BROKEN HEROES. DOROTHY BRUNTON'S SONG RINGS TRUE. Gay with bunting and echoing to the sound of drums and bugles, Burn ley provided a fitting welcome to in valid soldiers who returned home this week. It was a fine example which might well be followed in other locali ties. Residents, the Burnley boy scouts, and children combined in the wel come. Flags were displayed from practically every house, and gifts of fruit, flowers and cigarettes were showered as little tokens of friend ship end thankfulness on the heroes. Crowds swarmed round the. motor cars and shook the soldiers by the hands. There were few men' to join in the reception, and the women tired of handshakes. "Look the other way!" they yelled to a soldier's wife. Then they proceeded to shower kisses on an embarrassed but delighted young married man! There was a genuine ring about the reception which added to its significance. Three Richmond lads were welcom ed, and several other returned men ...

The Price of Victory Brave Richmond Boys Who Thought the Flag Was Worth Fighting For. "Snowy" McLeish Falls in France. Killed in. action, Gunner Angus ("Snowy") McLeish was one of the brightest of the brave band of Rich mond boys who have made the great sacrifice. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. McLeish, Somerset-street, and from top to toe he was made of the sterling quality that stands a boy and a man out from his fellows and wins him the respect of all. He was a North Richmond schoolboy, and prizes in the front room of the Mc Leish home prove that his studies were not neglected. Mentally alert, he was physically splendid; He was one of the most prominent junior athletes in this or any other district. He excelled at cricket, football and pedestrianism. He was captain of the Richmond I.O.R. Club in cricket and football, and he led both teams to pre miership honors. Joining St. Ste phen's Cricket Club, his fine character and qualities for leadership were again recognised, and he ...

What Bagdad Means to Germany. ("Wall Street Journal.") [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 21 April 1917
What Bagdad Means to Germany. ("Wall Street Journal.") Writers on. remote causes of the war in Europe have made occasional re ferences to the Bagdad railway con cession granted several years ago by Turkey to Germany. By this railroad Constantinople would be connected with the Gulf of Persia and with Egypt. Originally it was believed in' England that the enterprise was a private one, but more recently: it has come to be regarded as a Prussian state enterprise. The meaning of the concession in economic and mili tary advantages to Germany and its meaning to the future of Asiatic Tur key, and especially to the valley of the Euphrates, are set forth in the article. Without command of the sea, in a great war like the .present, Germany resembles A Besieged City. But in the .Bagdad concession Ger many could see a future storehouse of food products, petroleum, copper, fibres, and other necessary raw ma terials. Before the present Empire was welded together with "blood and iron," a Prussian s...
