RYE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 10 July 1909

RYE A distressing accident occurred lately to the little son of Mr and Mrs .1.. Sullivan, who was playing at his father's chaflcutter, and by some nmeans managed to nearly sever one of his little fingers. He was at once taken to the aoctor at Sorrento, who had eventually to amputate the finger, and the boy is now getting on very well. There are more enquiries for land in this district lately, and as the quantity i- very limited for sale, there is no doubt that all available allotments will le duly purchased very soon.

SCHOOL FOOTBA .L,. TYABB v. SOMERVILLE. BY "BAR' OEEl. A .yery exciting game .between, the above teams took place on the Tyabb football ground.: on Saturday.. last. The ground wassin a bad state for foot ball, the mud in places being ankle deep. The boys seemed quite at home amongst it, and some of the peculiar "busters", they received, caused great amusement to the on lookers, who came to see the Tyabb boys "downed" for the third time by their opponents, but this was not to be. On the bounce of the ball both teams '"booted" it'off the ground, and George Golding. by this means carried the leather from one end of the field to the other, where Tommy Dolan lost no time in raising the flags for Tyabb. The first quarter closed with Tyabb in the lead by 1 goaL The Somerville boys rallied in the second quarter, and with a free kick against Tyabb for kicking in the ruck, Fred Gregory (who was doing, good work for his side) sent the ball through the sticks.

DROMANA v. SOMERVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 10 July 1909

DROMANA v. SOMI~ERVILLE. The meeting of the above teams at Dromana on Saturday last drew a large number of spectators from vari ous parts of the Peninsula. The afternoon was an ideal one for foot ball, but the playing ground unfor tunately, owing to the recent rainy weather, was wet and slushy in places, and as a result the ball became very greasy and difficult to handle, thus marring a good exhibition of the game. The players, frequently being unable to pick it up, had to resort to the unattractive method of booting the ball along the ground. The visi tors, who arrived in good time, brought across a very strong contin gent, and as both teams play similar football, a great struggle was antici pated, and in this respect spectators were not disappointed, for the result hung in the balance until within ten minutes of the final bell. E. Rudduck, winning the toss from S. Martin, showed his good judgment by deciding to kick towards the western goal, as that end of the ground was much the ...

The plain and fancy dress ball, held in the Mechanics' Institute, Morning ton, last Wednesday night (under the capable management of Mr Reg Schleebs) was a brilliant spectazle. About 30 couples, mostly in fancy costumes, graced the floor, and a good number of spectators assembled to witness the function. The ball com imenced about 9 o'clock, with a grand march, in which those attired in fancy dress competed for the prizes for the best original characters. The lady's prize was won by Miss Peterson, the character being "Woman's Life." The whole of her costume was artistically arranged with pictures from "\Voman's Life," and looked very pretty. The gentleman's prize was won by iMr Reg Schleebs, who represented an American Cow Boy. The judlges, Messrs Livingston and Stevens, had ta very diflicult task to perform, as all the costumes were very pretty and original, and their verdict gave entire satisfaction.
