Saw Milling Enterprise [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 25 November 1921

Saw Dilliqg Enterprise Mr J. Jones, of Caulfleld, is erect ing a saw milling and planing plant on the Burns Estale, which lies be tween the Hastings and Cranbourne roads, close to \r Werner's mansion. Mr Jones was impressed by the fact that the lots in the Burns Estate are much the cheapest on offer in a part of Franketon which, with electrifi cation and the making of the sub way from the island platform, must go ahead by leaps and bounds. He is entering on the erection of a four roomed reildlence: on the allotment adjoining the one on which his plant stands. That done, he proposes to erect other houses for sale, on blocks in the estate which Mr Macmaster has advertised in the "Standard" from time to time. The enterprise on which Mr Jones has embarked should make building on and about Cranbourne and Hastings roads easier and cheaper, and will be welcomed by all who want to see the district progress.

Our Balinarring Budget Balharring, Nov 20th The Xmaseholidays are almost with us agai n, and, with the'advent of the railway, Balnarring expects to be in the position' to report a largebi''nflux of visitors than ever. Some dise appointment has been expressed here that the district representative, the BHob.

PICTURE NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 25 November 1921

PICTURE NOTES All who see tomorrow night's pro gramme will talk about it for days. The features portray Miriam Cooper and Theda Barn in pictures of out standing merit. "Should a Husband Forgive?" reduces the problem of the ages to terms of modern life, and it 1a doubtful whether any picture yet presented here was more strikingly tense or more absorbing' in interest than this one. Miriam Cooper plays the ingenue role-and all those who see this picture will chuckle at the comedy incidents and thrill with the tense scenes and exult in the episodes which give a new viewpoint on the perplexities of life. The supporting picture, "La ..Belle Russe," gives Theda Bara the. chance to liveup to her reputation as .a vampire. The story is by David Belasco, and Theda Bars ploys an astounding dual 'rolb replete wi t h sensational effoote. Many of the scenes have an English atmosphere, and the whole story con trasts a story of mother-love and self sacrifice with a woman's heartless ambition, and th...

Assault on Little Girl [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 25 November 1921

Assault on Little Girl The case against Charles Henry Morgan for having attempted to hare carnal knowledge of a little girl, 10 yearsof age, at Langwarrin on Oct31 came before Mr Justice Mann in the Criminal Court last week. The Crown accepted Morgan's plea of guilty of an indec.-nt assault, and abandoned the more serious' charge. Morgan had to be assured by connsel that "it was unlikely that be would be hanged" before he pleaded guilty. The circumstances of the case were that he met the little girl whilst she was returning from school, and cried out "Look out for the snake I" As the child turned away, he caught her, and dragged her into the bushes. When arrested by the F:anketon Police, he denied that be was the man who was wanted.

REPATRIATION Mr Wilson's Certificate [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 25 November 1921

IREPATRIATION Mr Wilson's Certificate L. V Wilson, (late A.I.F.) writes in reply to Mr Barrett, Secretary Frankston Repatria tion Committee, as follows : " Mr Barrett states that the average mind can easily see that his committee cannot give a re ference to a man unknown to its members without evidence of ability from some reliable source. In reply to that, I say that I was seven years farming on my father's farm close to Seaford station, so that the average mind can easily see that the Frankston Committee should and could have obtained a reference from a num ber of persons as to my ability to conduct a farm, but for some rea son they do not wish to do so. Mr Barratt further states that my brother (N. Wilson) applied for a reference to their committee and named Cr Armstrong as one who could give a reference ; that the committee in both cases wrote to Cr Armstrong and he could not give the information. Well I say such a statement is outrageous. Mr brother did ap ply for a farming qua...

Barrett, A. Lister and L. Slocombe. After a very enjoyable afternoon's play, Tyabb run out victors by 38 games to 32. Some of the Tyabb players, who are new to match tennis, suffered a bit from nerves at first but soon found their game. " Last FSaturday. 19th November, the return match was played at Hastings. T he Tyabb team was the same as before with the exception that tI r H. King took the place of iMlr Russell. Rain caused the play to be a bit late in starting, but a start was made about 3.80.

Sport and Anecdote SOME NEWSY TATTLE BY "STRATHMORE" [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 25 November 1921

"Singme a song raf.ia the place where the sun shines all the time," so wrote a poet of the war days. To my mind, the phrase is deceptive. Last Fri day, for instance, the heat was most oppressive-the sun, not only shone, but it burnt. And then we had the change, and our temperature shifted from the tropical to Alaskan or Antarc tic. Yet everybody enjoyed it, and shivered at Epsom and the cricket matches with becoming resignation. For, as the true sport says, it is all in the game. ,All good racing people made 'liordialloc their rendezvous on Saturday, for it was the day of the Epsom races. No reports of fortunes won have been reported to me, but, then, most of these punters from Frankston are very reticent. Mr Henry Masterton, the local sportsman, "and a man who is lib eral with his cheques for local benefactions, has a promising gelding, Bridgehead, iii Pad field's stable, and, to quote "Or monde" of "Truth,"'he shouldbe worth keeping in mind in the near future. Bridgeheadwas though...
