District News MOOROODUG. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 1 August 1908
District News MOOROODUC. On the ' Annesleigh" estate, re cently purchased and cut into blocks, the portion adjoining Moorooduc railway station now owned by Messrs . Grffith Bros. of Somerville, is being improved. A new house, allowing for additions, has been erected on a .conspicuous position, and ploughing operations are in full swing, getting the land ready for the planting of nursery fruit tree stock, of which a large acreage is to be planted this season. The ploughing is being car ried out in a workmanlike manner by Jight and useful implements, and if the young trees don't grow straight it will not be for the want of example shown in the furrows. New fences are being erected, in various directions to mark off the several paddocks, and wire netting is being freely used to keep off the rabbits and bares, which always endeavour to prune fruit trees without permission. The proprietors are doing a great deal for this district by improv ing the property, and also letting the outside w...
Correspondence. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents.) FLINDERS—SHOREHAM FOOTBALL. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD.) [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 1 August 1908
Correspondence. (We do not nPeceseely identify ourselvetsith the opinions e-pressed by correspondente.) FLINDERS-SHOREEML FOOTBALL: (TO TIT EDITOR OF THE STANDARD.) Sir,---The ill-timed jibe of your cor respondent, "Member ..F.C.," takes the cake for unsportsmanlike petty spleen. Anything more calculated to engender ill-feeling amongst the young men. of the district .can hardly be imagined. Fortunately the Shoreham lads are manly sportsmen, and may be relied upon to .dismiss the .puerile taunts with a quiet smile of derision. All Flinders footballers know that Shoreham has no "club," and merely mustered a team to give Flinders a friendly game and necessary practice. It was also understood that they would play a return match on the first occasion that a full team would be available. The appearances of such an inviting letter on the date fixed for the game, was well calculated to cause reprisal. Had the Shoreham lads possessed the petty spirit of your cor respondent, Flinders team wou...
CONVIVIAL AFTER-GATHERING AT "MIA MIA." [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 1 August 1908
CONVIVIAL AFTER-GATHERING AT " MIA MIA." At the conclusion of the concert the performers and several members and supporters of the club were entertained by Mr and Mrs E. J. Watson at a recherche supper and euchre party at their residence, "Mia Mia.' It has been strongly illustrated on more than one occasion the good fortune of the Frankston Football Club in possessing such a practical and enthusiastic supporter as Mrs Watson undoubtedly is. Cabs were in waiting to convey performers from the hall to Mrs Watson's residence, on arrival at which everything was found in perfect readiness for the en tertainment of the guests, about 30 in all. A table artistically laid out and packed with the very choicest of dain ties imaginable, was set before the company, who were loud in their praises of their hosts' hospitality. After supper an adjournment was &nbsp; made to an adjoining available house, where tables were laid out for euchre. A pleasant game was indulged in, Mr T. Buckley even...

Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 1 August 1908
Obituary. We regret to announce the death of a very old resident of Mornington, in the person of Mr John Ricketts, who dropped dead on Tuesday night last, about 11.30 p.m. Mr Ricketts was proceeding homewards along the main street, accompanied by Mr Berglund, when he suddenly collapsed. Mr Berglund hurriedly sommoned Dr. Somers, and although only about twenty minutes elapsed from the time of being called until the doctor exa- mined deceased, he pronounced life ex- tinct. Mr Ricketts leaves a wife and grown up family. Mr Ricketts' death came as a great shock,as he had been in his usual health. He had spent the evening with his daughter, and had reached within a few yards of his house when he fell. Deceased was an old age pensioner, and was a resident of Vic- toria for 55 years. He was born in Kent, England, and was 78 years of age. His remains were interred in the Moorooduc cemetery. Constable Stephen reported the matter to the coroner, Dr Cole, who gave an order for burial, as he di...
NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 1 August 1908
NOTES. The semi-final matches of the Penin sula premership take place this after noon. Frankston and Mornington meet at Somerville, Brown umpire. Hastings and Somerville meet in the Frankston Park, Wilson umpire. Dromana are likely to meet Queens cliff ere the season closes. The first named would drive to Sorrento, and take a launch across to the military town. The idea is to play the Dro mane team, and then entertain them. Rumour hath it that Sorrento wish to play the winners of the premership. The Frankston Bicycle club's foot the Kangaroo football club, at Frank ston or Mentone. As these clubs are composed of League players, a great struggle is anticipated. It is under stood that Mr T. Sherrin, the famous ball maker, who is a great supporter of the cycle club, will give a trophy for competition. Much enthusiasm is being manifes ted at Mornington over the senmi-final m:atch against Frankston at Somerville to-day. The livery-stable proprietors are being hard pressed to provide velh...

SOMERVILLE v. HASTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 8 August 1908
SOMERVILLE v. HASTINGS. The meeting of the above teams at Frankston on Saturday provided a splendid contest, worth going a long way to see. - With most football en thusiasts the match . was voted a certainty for Hastings, but it was not taken into consideiation that in no match this seasoi has Somerville been able to get a representative team together The Somerville men right along have played well, and have some tip-top performances to their credit. In our report of the Somerville v. Frankston match on the opening day of the season we find what has proved to be a good tip, viz., "Somerville has the makings of a very fine eighteen. They want a little coaching, and. will then make matters very warm for the premiership. They are- not of a class to be disheartened." They had on Saturday a good team afield, while Hastings were without a couple of their usual players. The result of the match was a surprise - to many, -for Somerville, playing well right through, were ahead by one point at...
