ANOTHER ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 17 February 1912

ANOTHER ACCIDENT. At the Tramway picnic on Monday another- unfortunate accident hap pened, when two riders in one of the cycle races smah'ed into the fence whilst going at full speed. The force. of the impact might be calculated from the fact that one of the red.gum posts was broken and the thick chain snapped. The riders luckily escaped with a few painful bruises, but a little boy standing by was seriously injured through being struck across the spine by the broken chain.

Mornington Park Bicycle Track. COUNCIL CONSIDERS ITS DANGEROUS STATE. IMPROVEMENTS TO BE EFFECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 17 February 1912

Mornington Park Bicycle Track. COUNCIL CONSIDERS ITS DANGEROUS STATE. IMPROVEMENTS TO BE EFFECTED. As a result of the recent accidents on the Mornington cycle track,` the matter came before the council meet ing last week, when Cr Grover reported that the park committee had inspected the track to see how it could be made safer. The accidents all appeared to take place at about the one spot, and here it. was recommended that the posts be shifted out five feet from tlhe outside of the track as soon as possible. This would give riders five feet to use in case of being run off the asphalt. He moved accordingly and Cr Alston seconded, urging that the work be carried out at once as there were a dozen more picnics to be held in the park. Cr Campbell, as an old racing cyclist, said the track was dangerous in all parts. He suggested getting ex perts from L.V.W. to advise the best means of making the track safe. _ Cr Flood said he would sooner see it banked up. He had had a serious ideaof movi...

OUR LETTER BOX. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents. THE COWS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 17 February 1912

OUR LETTER BOX. We do not necessarily identify ouirselves with the opinions expressed by corres pondents.) THE COWS. tO THE EDITOR. Sir,-=-There is in your issue of the 5th, a letter re the treatment of cattle. I can endorse those state ments, and will you allow. me through your paper to plead for the cow? We have too many in our State fighting a pitiful battle against hereditary failings, and national temptation. Much of this might be avoided if we used what the Creator provides-fruit and milk-instead of stimulating food and drink. We must foster and protect the cow, and use more milk for children if we wish our race to be what it ought to be. A fine healthy cow is an ornament any where, but if she is to be precluded from walking down our streets or through the sacred precincts of our city, then let her be properly treated. I had several enclosed; the place is far too small. One of them ias rushed into a corner and almost fatally injured; as it was she had a big swelling on her leg...
