A Sad Suicide A VERY PATHETIC CASE AT CRIB POINT [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 September 1921
ASad Suicide A VERY, PATHETIC CASE AT CRIB POINT .The second" suicide-the first was a very gruesome one-in the history oTb naval settlement at Westernport is reported from ,Crib Point. The details to liand are.somewhat meagrie; but it ap pears that. the ydung fellow-he had .juist turned 19 years-had more than a share of domestic trouble and sickness during the past two years. It seems that he came to Australia fromn Scotland, with his. parents' and the rest of the familyi lDeath robbed him of his parents, to whom he was much attached, and their loss ap parently preyed on his mind, and he became afflicted with a" severe illness. Treatment brought little relief, and he was given 28 days leave of -absence, at the end of which he was to receive his dis charge from the navy. In the meantime, the unhappy lad had secured passages, for his two little sisters, and sent them home to their grandmother in Scotland -a kindly act which makes the tragic act all the more pathetic.

He was fined £5. The same day. an old woman was fined £75 for selling stagger-juice without a- licence, and another chap was fined £100 for betting..in the street. ,These are instances amongst many, all reciting a travesty on justice that requires no special: elaboration on my part.

The Umpire's Whistle Newsy Notes about the Game and Its Players [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 September 1921
The Umpire's Whistle Newsy Notes about the Game and Its Players SAs the time nonorea saying goes, there are occasions when all roads lead to Rome. But, in this case, by substituting Somer ville for the Eternal City, one might graphically describe Sat urday last, when Carrum aid Hastingsplayed the preliminary final. The attendance was drawn from all parts, from as far away as Edithvale and Flinders and Rosebud, and the gate takings amounted to £56 14s, as against £79 for the two semi-finals at Frankston. The gate at the final at Somerville tomorrow, when the same antagonists meet, is ex pected to be somewhat larger. The day was gloriously fine, and, apart from a few merry sailors, who were amusing in their antics, but by no means quarrelsome, the crowd, in spite of the excite ment, was well behaved. They were, however, astonished at the action of the delegates in drop ping Umpire Dainty in favor of Umpire Osborne. The only com plaint made against Dainty was that he was too strict-and...

An Old Colonist's Letter [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 9 September 1921
An Old Colonist's Letter "A Colonist Since 1837," who resides at Baxter, writes : "In the last edition of "The Standard" I noticed a dip into the history of the early days by your Langwarrin correspondent. Nearly everything he wrote is wrong. The name "Frankston" has nothing to do with the Liar- det family; it was named years before. I, as a resident since 1843, know when Liardet's came to Frankston. It was Fred, not &nbsp; Frank, who came in 1855 to look for land. My father took him to "Ballam;" which was part of our run at the time. "Ballam" is the dative name-Fred Liardet put the "Park" to it. And about the first bricks. What nonsense he writes. I could tell him where the first bricks used for buildings in Melbourne were made. Why, they were. made long before the Liardets came to the colony ! And the paragraph about the girl getting lost is equally mislead- ing. The child that was lost was a daughter of Mr Willoby, who owned a cattle run seven miles from Baxter. He was a ...
