LANGWARRIN [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 10 July 1909
LANCWARRIN Several successful working bees have been formed under the directions of the Progress Association, principally in the endeavour to finish the tennis court. At all the bees good teams of workers turned out, and splendid work was done. Mr W. Oates (President of the Association) spent considerable time, in addition to his attendance at the bees arranged, in hauling logs to build up a depression at one end of the court. This meant a saving of some dozens of loads of earth. Mr C. S. Corlett has been elected to the position of Secretary of the Pro gress Association for the remaining two months, when the half-yearly election of all officers will take place. The local footbatl club is now in full swing. Captain W. Cain has his men out for training every week, and they should soon show some good form. Some recent 'visitors to New Zealand give a very dismal account of prospects there. Work is hard to get and living is dear. There are some eight thousand men on relief works. Mr Felt...

MOOROODUC. The-id6xitb1h meeang of the 'ro gpessive Association was held on Satur day evening at " Anniesleigh," the pal atial residence of Thos. Falls, Esq. The night was clear and fine, but frosty, and just that kind of weather that one enjoys the warmth from a cosy fire. A representative nunber put in an appearance, and after the minutes of the previous meeting had been read and confirmed, the committee went in to the matter of forming rules and regulations. After much discussion, these were agreed to, and the fee for membership was fixed at the nominal figure of five shillings per year. The president then brought under notice the unsatisfactory state of the railway station, and steps are to be taken to endeavour to get the Department to make sonie extensive imnprovemllents for the convenience of the public, who find this centre so suitable for their re quirements. On the closing of the meeting it was decided to admit ladies as members, and the visitors were then led to the spaci...

The Balnarring District. PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 10 July 1909
The Balnarring District. PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENTS. LBY " THE LEADER "AGRICULTURAL RE PORTER]. Mr A. Thomas, another of the new men who came into the district some four years ago, also began by wire netting and getting the plough to work, Pig raising on somewhat novel lines is an important source of revenue, and, worked in association with a proper system of dairying, gives excellent re sults. Here the practice is to keep about a dozen sows grazing on rape, much after the fashion of sheep, and to market their progeny as soon as they are weaned. Two hundred and forty weaners were thus disposed of last year, at an average of 12/6 a head. For these the demand greatly exceeds the supply. As soon as the rape is a few inches high the sows are turned on to it. Sties are provided some dis tance away from the field, and the animals use them as they desire. In warm weather they prefer to camp in the open, but on cold and wet even ings they readily seek the shelter thus open to them. A path lik...

NOTES. Slater is stripping again for Morning ton. Jack and A. McArthur put in a lot of fast work for Mornington on Saturday. New blood in Connop, sbapped three goals for Mornington. Evans, Stanley, and Byrne. were Bal narring's best players. Mornington Juniors play Langwarrin this afternoon. A close game is expected between Mfornington and Balnarring to-day. Mornington tried a new man in the ruck, Thompson, who played a good solid game there, and did some neat handball as well. Mornington's older players, Harrap, good style against Tyabb. It was also up to the last two named to show out a bit, as their play this season has been somewhat patchy. Balnarring, although defeated by Hast ings, put up a fine game in the second half when Hastings never scored a point. Their score of 3-5 was secured before half time, and was not added to after the interval. Wilson, of 3Mornington. is now playing well on the forward line every Saturday. He was not overburdened with chances by his comrades las...

- TO TIEn DI Tsin iO rTIIE BTADAI1D. Sir,-I am sorry to have to again solicit your courtesy to admit a reply to your correspondent, " Disgusted." No one di-puted the similarity of both schedules 190S-9, CI?ss A. Sections 1 to 6, then why comparison ? But. when " Disgusted ":' says these are the sections the Auinn.e-leigh stock competed in when owned by MIr Mitchell. he is say ing something what I cannot think is quite true, providing his comparison of Schcdules is not faulty. I have not read 1908 schedule, but if" Disgusted " will throw off his mask and back up his statement by handing you, Sir, a cheque to be given to the charities or to help the funds of the Flilnders show, providing it is showvn he is in error and undertake to prove that the horses referredl to inmie of the 9th ult., could have competed in any class or section mentioned in the 1909 schelude, then I will undlrtake to coiic!usively prove that lh- knows nothing whatever about the matter. In the meantime I may star,:...

Splendid music (piano, violin and piccolo) was supplied by Gabriel's well known band. The refreshment department was in the capable hands of the ladies, and needless to say, the edibles were of the choic est. The duties of M.C. were satisfactorily carried out by Bro. Gregory, P.G.M.

TO THlE EDITOI: OF TIlE STANDARD Sir,-I have not the pleasure of knowing Mr Falls, but from the tone of hi, letlers on the above subject I should say he is a man who does not underrate his capabilities. If, as "-Dis gusted" points out, he has been trying to get ciheap advertisement, he has worked his point, and should pay you advertisement rates for the space taken up in his last letter. His answer to mine was puerile in the extreme. In his reply to lMr Holland, he states something to the effect that if it can be shown he is wrong he will be re lucltuttly compelled to acknowledge the fact. Why "reluctantly" ? Surely any man, when courteously shown that he is labouring under a mis apprehension, would gladly and will ingly "own up" that such has been the case. A COMMITTEEMAN.

I have. at tended several times and made en quiries from the custodian, but -.have been informed -they had not been received.. Who is responsible" for this shocking neglect? Is there no provision in the Local Government Act dealing with this kind of thing ? The possibilities are that Iand others may be disfranchised' through no fault of our own.

Frankston Cemetery Reserve. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 17 July 1909
Frankston Cemetery Reserve. Mr John Fife Atkinson writes as follows to the " Herald ": Commenting on the intention of the Government to plant with pines the 1200 acres of land at Frankston, you are.hardly correct in stating that the property was unsuitable for a cemetery. Some 25 years ago, the Victorian Fun eral Association, of which. I am secret ary, advocated the closing of the Mel bourne General Cemetery, and induced the Berry Ministry to invite a con ference delegates from the City Council a..d the municipal councils north of the Yarra. and to inspect land in dif ferent localities, and to advise the Government resp. -ting a site suitable for the purposes of a new general ceme tery. Several months were occupied in visiting land offered in various localities-Springvale and Frankston amongst the number. We were about to report the superiority of Sir Andrew Clarke's e state at. Frankston, which in every particular satifiled us that it could be made one of the most beauti ful burial...
BALNARRING. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 17 July 1909
BALNARRING. Rain interfered very much with the operations of Arbor Day, but in spite of it, so strong was the muster of male helpers that a lot of work was got' through. The plans for the day in cluded, besides the usual tree planting, the extension of the garden and the formation of a lawn and drive. Posts for the fencing were, provided by Mr Farrel and Mr Berryman, and Mr Birch saw to the ploughing of the new ground. The fencing and ploughing were completed, or nearly so, but little or nothing could be done tdwards lay ing out the garden. After the day's work, tea, provided by the ladies of the district, was served in the schoolroom. It was decided that a " bee" day be appointed to complete the laying-out of the gat den, and the plantng of buffalo grass. Mr Buckley (chairman of the Board of Advice) conveyed to the ladies in his usual happy vein the thanks that were due to them for their'assist ance and the inspiration of their pres ence. Mr Oswin, Mr Davies and Mr Bayford also spo...
