Somerville Show. The committee of the Somerville show have raised their prize money in the horse events, and added several new items, amongst which are best riding, by boy of 13 years and under, best riding by girl 14 years and under and yearling colt or filly (open class) and two year old colt or filly (open class); also a riding competition between sticks. Mrs Griffeth, of Two Bays, is giving prizes for amateur photography. It has also been decided that in the knitted sox sections, that the knitting must be done with Paton's 4 ply fingering, with skein tickets attatched, hoping that in this way the "same old pair" of sox will not win the prizes every time, and thusby give others a chance.
An Interesting Exhibit AT THE FRANKSTON SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 27 January 1912
An Interesting Exhibit AT THE FRANKSTON SHOW. A more interesting exhibit than that of Messrs Wertheini at the Frankston show last week would. be difficult to imagine. Here the firm displayed their fine Australian-built pianos, whilst a deserved prominence was also given to their celebrated sewing machiies. In view of the extraordinary success which has .at tended Mlessrs Werthcim's enterprise in building all-Australian pianos, special interest was attached to tile display of these intruments, and no one hearing the rich, full, resonant tone, and noting the easy responsive elastic touch, could fail to understand why these pianos have won such high paiso'from. the most critical, musical authorities, and so wide a reputation in the estimation of a discriminating public. Apart, too, from their excel lence from a purely musical point of view, another, feature of Wertheim Australian pianos deserves special notice - Iheir unusually handsome casings. These are all in Australian woods- Messr...

Miss Lilian Adams, and Miss Mercy Flitton, a contralto with few equals, together with the Frankston favorites. Mr W.

Sir ,-In fairnesli to the hoodlum 8_pusn Ot'youoro?€p-on c n or. formant has called them, re the smashing up of the lamp opposite the Somerville Hall, I bed to con tradict that report, as such is not the case. The fact is, whilst the contractor was lighting up one evening, the door of the lamp came off itshinges. Someone had evi dently seen it in that. state, and jumped to the conclusion that the hoodlum element had been at work. Hence last week's report. Yours,etc, A. C. W. Somerville, January 22nd 1912.
Sporting Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 27 January 1912
Sporting Notes. In its issue last week the Dand9 nong Advertiser remarks :--'"Says the "Standard"-There is talk of holding a race meeting at Baxter's Flat in the course of a few months. It seems a pity that a course, which could be put in order for comparatively little cost, should be idle year after year. There is an opening for a" good registered meeting in the Peninsula, and Bax ter's Flat, from its nearness to Mlel bourne and central position for district people, would be a most suit able course." I quite agree with the Frankston scribe. Years ago they had splendid meetings at Baxter's Flat and Emu Plain, and well-bred horses competing, who had to walk down from their training stable=, while the owners, trainers and jockeys got down as best they could. Now they have trains from their doors al= most to the racecourse gates, and large fields and bumper gates should be the iesult. Money is plentiful ands cheap now,'and racehorses have increased by hundreds since the days of Emn Pla...

Capital and Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 27 January 1912
Capital and Labor. Mr Joseph Unthank, Somerville, writes to "The Argus' of Wednesday as follows:- Mr Vivash on the 17th ripFlied to my letter of the 13th. lie hfad a very attentive audience until one man did make a slight interjection. He (Mr Vivash) insultingly remarked that he could see "sweater" written . on his face. I then thought it' was time to take a hand in support of the "sweater" who; by the way, was a man who had always been a hard worker and a fair employer. M1r Vivash speaks of immigrants only getting casual employment. I can assure him that in this district any man who is satisfied to deal fairly with his employer, can get constant work at a living wage. It is singular that Mr Vivash did not bring evi dence that there were always a dozen men after eve:y job in Canada, where they import so many rural workers. There is one aspect of labor that agitators did not dwell upon. They talk aboud grinding men down to low wages. It is impossible, in- this countrjy to grind cdmpe...
