Empire Day. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 15 May 1909

Empire Day. Quitea large number of parents and others (about 5o), assembled at the Frankston State school, in answer to the advertisement which appeared in last issue, calling a meet ing for the purpose of arranging the suitable celebration of Empire Day locally. Cr Sherlock was in the chair, and said it was needless to say what they had met that evening for, as they all knew that the object was to arrange a gala day for the children. All present knew that last year the celebrations took the form of a mon ster picnic, in which a large number of children were catered for both in the way of sports, refreshments, etc., and he left it in their hands for con sideration. Before proceeding he called on Mr Richardson (hon. sec.) to read the balance-sheet, which showed a credit balance of A. 1,8/6, which goes a long way to prove that the management of last year's affair was in capable hands. The election of President and heon. sec. then took place, and both Messrs Sherlock and Richardson wer...

MOOROODUC. A meeting of residents took place during last week at the residence of Mr J. E Jones, " Little Farm," in order to raise money to make a suit able presentation to Mrs Connop, who has for a number of months past car ried the mail bags, papers, parcels, and sundry visitors to and from the rail way station to the post office, and on high days and holidays has acted as post "mistress. By her good-natured kindly actions she has won the esteem of many who would otherwise have been much inconvenienced had not the familar old grey been in willing hands to do a good turn for all. The meeting was a most successful one, and the chair was ably filled by Thos. Falls, Esq., thus ensuring the business being carried on in a fair and square way. A collection in the room, and afterwards taken round to those who were unable to attend, resulted in the amount of £3 7s being obtained, which will be handed over with best wishes.

PENINSULA ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 15 May 1909

PENIN'SULA ASSOCIATION. Competition in this Association was commenced on Saturday last, when the games were played on wet grounds, and consequently very little brilliant play was possible. The winning teams were Somerville (wh'o beat Dromana), Hastings (who scored a win against the newly formed Balnarring team), and Mornington (who somewhat easily defeated Tvabb). A pleasing feature of Saturday's games was the satisfac tion expre-sed with the umpiring. In the Somerville-Dromana match, Por teous carried out his duties splendidly, taking the players well in hand from the start, and. held control; he was strict and impartial throughout.

FLINDERS SHOW. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 15 May 1909

FLINDERS SHOW. TO TIIE EDITOIR OF THE STANDARD. Sir.--I regret having to trouble you again, but feel I must reply to Mr Falls' letter (not article) in your issue of the 8th in-t. Mr Falls contends that I know his stuiement to be true. I know nothing of the sort, and fail to understand that gendleman's interpre tation of the schedules as issued for March Show, 1909, at all. He then concludes by asserting that my con tention of his being able Lo enter' Annesleigh stock under sections 1 to 6 inclusive is grossly erratic and mis leading. I leave that to the public to judge. Sections 1 to 6 reads as follows:-1, Stallion to produce farm horses; ', Draught Mare with foal at foot; 3, Draught Mare Dry ; 4, Draught Gelding or Filly, 2 or 3 years old ; 5, Draught Gelding or Filly year ling; 6, Draught Foal.-Yours, etc., T. HOLLAND, Hon. Sec. F. A. and H. Society.

MORNINGTON V. TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 15 May 1909

MORNINGTON v. TYABB. Mornington played Tyabb at Tyabb on Saturday last, and were winners of a game which was more evenly con tested than the scores indicate.

The final result was : Mornington, 6-4 (40 points), Tyabb, 2-7 (19 points). The goal-kickers were-Slater (2), F. Harrap, N. M'Arthur, F. Schleebs, and J.

Frankston Rechabite Tent. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 15 May 1909

Frankston Rechabite Tent. The Rechabite Order, when reviewed generally, is rapidly advancing in all its departments. An emphatic impetus was given to it when the "forward movement" policy was decided upon some time ago. To this may be assigned its reniarkable increase of members, and consequently its great accumulation of financial resources. This enables the Order to offer very generous conditions to its members, which is evidently securing the appro val of the community. 'The familiar aphorism that " Nothing succeeds like success," has its conspicious verifict ion in this connection. Frankston tent continued its prosperous career. Quite a large number of new members are to be initiated next quarter night, when the tent is to be honoured with a visit from a grand lodge otficer. A bioscopic entertainment and a number of illustrated songs will be given, in the interests of the tent, on Saturday evening, June 5th, in the local Mechanics' Institute. Particulars are fully set forth by h...

WOMAN'S WORLD. WISDOM AND FOLLY IN DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 15 May 1909

WOMAN'S WORLD. WISDOM AND FOLLY IN DRESS. The average girl (aye, and her mother) goes to a milliner andsays, "' Is not that a sweetly pretty hat T'-or "bonnet," as the ease may be. 1I really must have it. What does it cost I" If the price be suit able, she carries it off, and is quite proud of her purchase. Now, the point on such occasions is, not that the hat should be pretty in itself, but that it should look pretty on th, purchaser. If it fails in this, its good qualities are wasted. Fashion is very elastic. If the broad liines be followed, it allows all sorts of adaptations and modifications to meet in dividual requirements; thus if a woman looks her best in a lligh-crowned hat, whfile low-crowned head-gear alone is in vogue, she may wear the latter, but pile up the feathers and trimltins wherewith it is adorned so as to give the effect :i height. To be well dressed does not nreesesarily mean to spend large sums on finery. It means having the faculty whereby one's r?etume is alw...
