HASTINGS v. TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 7 August 1909
HASTINGS v. TYABiB. These teams met at Hastings on Satur day. The weather being cold, wet, and windy. and the ground sloppy, there was no chance of anything like good football being shown, and the players were soon covered in mud. Tyabb had the wind with them in the first quarter, and shortly after the bounce scored a minor point. Then Hastings t:ok charge, and Alarra bella scored their first goal. Tyabb re sponded with another behind, while hastings added four points. In the second quarter the vi-itors played much better, antd both sides could only add one behind each. Scores at half time : Hastings 1-5, Tyabb 3 behinds. During the third quarter the play was all over the ground. The ball was so greasy that it was almost impos-ible to pick it u,, or hold it. Tyabb wit tlie wind iin the last term, made, a desperate attempt to pull up the deficit, but, principally owing to bad judgment in kicking, could not score, although they had several chances. Hastings added three goals (Carmicha...

SORRENTO. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 7 August 1909
SORRENTO. Rather a painful accident hap pened to Mr C. Myers on Saturday afternoon. H?e was using a chisel, and by some means it'slipped and caused a nasty wound in his thigh. Dr Boughton attended the patient, who is now progressing favourably. It is with regret we have to record two deaths. The first is Mr Allbress, of Rye, who died after undergoing an' operation in Melbourne, and his body was brought down here for interment in the Rye cemetery. He was a very old resident and much respected by everyone. The other is Norman, the only son of Mr D. Macfarlan. The boy had been ailing for some time, and he somewhat recovered, but un fortunately he got a relapse and passed away at 9 o'clock on Thursday morning. General sympathy is ex tended to the parents in their sad bereavement.

MEDICAL REPORT TO PREMIER. At the request of the Premier (says the Age) the official visitors of the t asylums fort he insane, Drs A. S. Joske, I J. Jamieson and,J. W. Springthorpe, I have prepared a report upon cigarette smoking. In it they set out the" legis- ( lation on the subject in various coun- t tries, and then' state that cigarette I smoking in certain individuals is quite compatible with excellent health. The tendency, however, is for boys and I youths who are not physically strong I to indulge in the habit. It is a habit that grows upon them. It undoubt-, edly:linterferes with,. all the ;bodily. function, binders growth and dige3= tion, interferes with the circulatory system, impairs memory, demoralises will power, and when indulged in be fore maturity does harm in a very large degree, making the individual listless, will-less and mor'ose. The report concludes :--"In our opinion cigarette smoking is very bad for boys and growing youths. We beg to suggest that it would be ...

Frankston Football Club. ENTERTAINED BY THE LADIES' HEATHER CLUB. The Frankston Football Club is fortunate in having an enthusiastic and generous band of lady supporters, who evince a whole-hearted interest in the club's doings, and assist in a practical manner in no small measure. Each Saturday the play is keenly watched by members of the "ladies committee." the oranges are always there, thanks to the "president," whilst the collection is always taken up at Frankston accompanied by the same smilin_ face or faces. It was a happy idea that resulted in the ladies, to the number of about 30, forming themselves into the "Heather Club" and entertaining the players at a social evening in the Mechanics on Saturday night, the gathering proving an unqualified success, and was voted by all who attended to be a highly enjoyable and well-managed affair from start to finish. The large hall presented a gay and artistically decor ated appearance, the decorations being tastefully executed with an a...
Kidney Troubles. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 7 August 1909
Kidney Troubles. It is not alone the aching back and the insipid tired feeling that has to be borne; it is the constant fear that greater ills will follow. Bright's disease, diabetes, gravel, gall stones, inflammation of the bladder, sup pression and retention of the urine, &c., all result from di~seases of ihe kidneys. Those who have never been troubled know not the misery and suffering which those afflicted undergo. "Having suffered exceedingly in the past from the Kidneys, general weakness of the system, and severe backache, which, during changes in the weather were more pronounced, and rendered life anything but pleasant," states Mr Henry Brown, 42 Kent-street, Richmond. "I may state that I tried all sorts of remedies and medicines which did me but little good. Seeing Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills advertised f,r those dom plaints I gave.tthem a triaL with.. the mnost'pleasing results for I found that the backache ceased, I began to pick up generally, and all signs of Kid...
