Press Recognition. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 April 1909
Press Recognition IN last week's STANDARD we published a letter which disclosed a circumstance unique in itself, and never before met with in our long experience of journal: ism. With every right-thinking pub lic inan or body, the Pressman is ap preciated in his peculiarly delicate and onerous position as the "via media " between the various sectiots of social life. As a rule, the more progressive and alert the community, the more considerate and ready is the helpingi hand held out to the local paper, :when it is seen to be honestly striviun to do its duty to the public. We have met with proofs of this, and know the stimulus and aid it is to the journalist when he sees his efforts backed up, and his hands strengthened, by a generous recognition. But it is really new to learn of anyone so sympathetic with a Pressman's drudgery, as to resign his seat on a pub'ie body be cause the local paper did not receive due and adequate recognition. A correspondent informs us and the public that t...

OPENING OF THE SEASON. King football commences for the sea son in real earneit to-day (Saturday), when the League matches open in Melbourne. Locally, the Federal Association also starts its series of matches amongst, the clubs on the Caulfield to Frankston line. The latter team's first proposition is against Ellendale,-reported as one of the best in the competition.

UIOHROODUG. During the week the weather has been very rough and cold, with heavy showers of rain. The ground is re ceiving a good soaking, but so far the moisture has not penetrated deeper than five or six inches; after that it is very uneven for ploughing, alternating from hard to soft, which makes this operation very tedious, but notwith standing these obstacles several -large fields have been turned over and are only waiting suitable weather for drilling the seed in, and here we notice that the improved method is gaining favor over the old-time way of hand sowing. The -good example of farming with last season's excellent results of oats and wheat grown by the late ow'ner of " Annesleigh" has con siderably advanced the practice this year of using machinery to save seed, manure, and labor. The milk supply has decreased, owing to the cold weather. The price for cream has also been low for this time of year, but from now on there is every prospect of an increased price and larger sup...
