MCOROODUC. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 July 1909
MOORUODUC. WVe have had a few fine, warm days, with frosty nights. The roads became dry and pleasant for travelling over; ploughing operations were eagerly com menced by several farmers and patches ofLnew land turned over; new fences were erected, and break-wind hedges planted. But before the horses and Implements could get accustomed to work again after all the wet weather, we were visited again by a watery change, that terminated on Friday evening in. a deluge that has made every part of the country most sloppy and disagreeable. As usual at this time of the year, foxes are very numerous, and can be heard yelping in all directions from sun set till sunrise. Farmers find it ditffi cult to keep them away from the young lambs. A good method is to rub the lambs' necks with red paint as soon as possible after they are born. After many years of hard wear and tear, a portion of our main road is undergoing regrading works, and the footpaths are being filled up with fine material suitable f...

CARRUM. EfXCITING FOOTBALL MATCH. CARRUM v. VACUUM OIL CO. A team of footballers picked from the accountants' department of the Vacuum Oil Coy. journeyed to Carrum on Saturday last, together with a large number of supporters, including m?'y of the fair sex. There was a large number of spectators, and the ladies of Carrum served afternoon tea to the visitors at the half-time, interval, which was very much appreciated. After the match dinner was served at the Mia ilia, and a social evening (at which Mr J. McNicol acted admirably as pianist) terminated a very pleasant outing. Reverting to the mach, punctually at 3 o'clock the teams took the field. Carrum had a representative eighteen, whilst the Vacuum team included such well-known footballers as Harris (Carlton), Milne (Fitzroy), Landerman (Essendon), White (Pres ton), Richards (Essenden Town).

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 July 1909
NOTES. Balnarring are now coming strong, and are just outside fourth place. Harry Firth, Somerville's solid ruck man, played onq of his best games against Miornington; his marking was very sure. For Somerville, Webb, P. Thornell and Monk were very smart all through, and B. Gomm, Sposisto and Potts were three players who kept Mornington back time after time. Jack Jenkins reappeared for Morn ington, and besides taking some good marks, did a slide on the grass, that would have made the mouth ofd, Morn ington roller skater water. The Mornington footballers concert and dance saw a number of its players "off colour" for the Somerville game, next day. That and Harrap's absence from the ruck just about accounted for Mornington's defeat by two points. The following represent Mornington in their match against Sorrento to-day: =: H. Downward,.M'Arthur (3)..M'Comb, Stanley' Harrap, Cdoinell, Wilson,'Scbi leebs, Bartlett, Slater, Harrison, A. Thompson, ;M'Queen, Jenkins, Menck, and Parry. The ol...

rlornington Footliall Club : VARIETY ENTERTAINMENT. The variety entertainment by the Mornington Vaudeville Entertainers, in aid of the Mornington Football Club, held in the Mechanics' Institute last Friday night, had the misfortune to encounter one of the worst nights of the winter. The rain fell in torrents from 7 o'clock till 8, but in spite of the weather conditions, the hall was well filled, the receipts amounting to about £11, leaving a balance of about £6, which would have been nearly .doubled if it had been a fine night. The programme throughout was splendid and well managed, reflecting great credit on Mr Will Thompson and the whole com pany. The opening pianoforte overture was played by Miss Harrison in fine style. The minstrel circle then en tertained the audience as follows: (Interlocutor : Mr A. Beattie; Bones, Messrs F. Harrap and A. McArthur; Tambos, Messrs Will Thompson, and F. Parsons; Accompanist, Miss Harrison); Opening chorus, "Bom badier." The Company; Ballad, "Lo...

FOOTBALL. Federal Association. FRANKSTON v. CHELTENHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 July 1909
FOOTBALL. Federal Association. FRANKSTON v. CHELTENHAM. This match was played at F.-ankston on Saturday, and considering the heavy state of the ground and ball, good fo,,tball was shown by both teems. Frankston were without seve ral of their best players, whilst the visitors had a strong combination in the field. The game was by.no means one-sided, and although the home team were beaten they constantly had the visitors on the defensive, and for a greater period than the latter had Frankston. The home team's weakest part was the centre line, and whenever the ball waspla ed to that. portion of + n is-.aac s nklttou roanwas sel dom seen. The first quarter opened with some good handball on the home team's side, but after a f.,w minutes play, Cheltenham by dash and better system, were the first to score, and a goal was on tie b,oard for them in a very short time. Fra'.kston attacked strongly, and from the boot of Dono lnhue a sixer was scored (the first and only one Fra-kston tot during ...
Our Letter Box. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents) RATEPAYERS' ROLLS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 July 1909
Our Letter Box. (We do not neeessarily identify or-selre uwith the opinions expressed ly correspondents) RATEPAYERS', ROLLS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD Sir,-I would like to ask Coun cillors of the West Riding, who are supposed to look after the interests of the ratepayers, how is it that no copy of the voters lists have been sent to Portsea? I have walked to Sorrento on two occasions to inspect the rolls, only to fitd.there are no rolls there, although, according to your adver tisement columns, the rolls should have been open for inspection from the 8th to the 14th July. I ask you, Sir, is this fair treatment ? I think not, and cannot but think that our councillors have been too long at the Council table, and it is up to them to retire and make room for live men. NOVUS HOMO. Portsea, 20o/7o9.
WEST RIDING ELECTION TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 July 1909
WEST RIDING ELECTION TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. Sir,-Noticing in your last issue that there is likely to be strong opposition to the retiring councillor for the West Riding, I write to state that I am one of many in this part of the riding who think the time has come when there should be some .change in the representation of the from what part of the district it comes. Notwithstanding the increase in the rates, our roads are in a disgraceful condition, despite the many election time promises of our present coun cillors. Apathy on the part of the ratepayers, and want of healthy oppo sition has evidently given some of our councillors an attack of the sleeping sickness, and it now remains for the ratepayers to bestir themselves, and induce some capable man to come forward, and relegate at least one of our representatives to that obscurity from which he should never have emerged. Yours, etc., DISGUSTED. Boneo, 2I/7/'o9.
Make Your District Known. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 July 1909
Make Your District Known. Concerning some parts of the district. news comes but seldom. This is not the fault of the Editor, for hehas no miracul ous power of knowing what is happening in all the place3 in the area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in the silent places. Will some man or woman take the mat terin hand and cause the silence to cease. If no one else is doing it for your dis trict, will YOU try on the lines ?. Send accounts of public and 'social events in your township or neighborhood, such as weddings, deaths, accidents, con certs, matters tnuching the industries, etc. Write your name in some corner; not for printing, but to prove good faith. Write the names of persons very dis tinctly. Do not bother about grammar or spell. ing; it is the Editor's work to look after these trifles. Write on one side of the paper only. Give information. butletcriticism alone
STRAYING CATTLE AT SORRENTO. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 July 1909
STRAYING CATTLE AT SORRENTO. TO THE EDITO1R OF TIHE STANDARD. Sir,-Some short time ago a deput ation waited on the Shire Council asking that the Act be enforced re straying cattle. It was passed by the Council that the Act be put in force as early as practicable. But so far the cattle are allowed to roam at leisure, doing damage to gardens, etc. Who is responsible for the laxity in the matter is the general enquiry from those who are sufferers from roaming stock. Trusting the councillors who were favourable to the Act being enforced will make some enquiry in the matter. Iam, etc.. ONE OF THE SUFFERERS.

1Mr ML A. McFarlane, Tobacconist, Mary borough V'ic' writes: "My boy has been troubled with bronchitis for some time, and though I had expert opinion and their prescriptions he still seemed to be getting worse. I was really afraid that he was de veloping consumption. At length I con cluded to give Chamberlain's Cough Re iuedy a trial, and can truthfully say the result was wonderfuuL From the very first he commenced to pick up, and is to-day quite healthy. At the least symptom of an attack I now give him a few doses, and it :dways checks the complaint at once.
