SOMERVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 14 August 1909
SOMERVILLE. The quiet hamlet of Somerville is being agitated to its deepest depths over the coming election; two great men are opposing each other, and the virtues and faults of both are being freely discussed. The new aspirant for municipal honors, Mr G. 0. Webb, is sure of a majority, and the sitting member, Cr G. Griflhth is also confident of a victory. Some say Cr Grill.th is sure to win, and otlers say that Ir Webb can't be beaten-so there you are. Mr S. S. Gault reports having let Mr Horsfall's orchard and lanld for three years to Mr Jas. HIindes, of Mort ington Junction, formerly manager for Mr Lewis at the Junction. Returns are just to hand from Messrs Lohmanu and Co., re the trial shipment of 110 eases to France, but the prices are not at all satisfactory. Growers are disappointed, as glowing reports were hela out as to probable prices. The nett proceeds were £17/4/6 for 110 cases.
TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 14 August 1909
TO THIE EDITOR OF TIIE STANDARD. Sir,--Being a visitor to Sorrento last Saturday, and an old League footballer, but frow residing in the coun, ry, I like others, went to see one of the Morningtou Peninsula Football fixtures for that day, played on the Sorrento oval. In the first quarter I saw a nice manly game played-a game a League team might well be proud of sn that respect-but after that the game degenerated into a rough and tumble, tripping, kicking in the ruck, and the elbow being freely used, one of the Sorrento team having, his nose broken from the latter, neces siating the doctor being called in, who was also called to attend another player in the evening. The umpire (a mere boy-a College lad I was in formed) seemed to lose all control of the players, his decisions being moss extraordinary. There are two things the Association might look into, the first being that they procure the ser vices of more experienced umpires, and the second that the umpires not be allowed to travel...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 14 August 1909
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD Sir,-Where is sport in the Morn ington Football Club ? They used the local press to bring discredit on Bal narring. Since then they have been fighting with Dromnana and Hlastings. Will they ever learn to play a hard game in a manly, friendly spirit?' It is rumored that an attempt is to be made in Morningtoi, to oust the other umpires from the finals and rive the lot to Porteous. This is an insult to the clubs which claim that Noon and Scott are better able to administer League rules that Porteous, who I think is a rank failure when play becomes at all congested. In view of a couple of questionable decisions recently, it would be more satiifactory to the teams if outside men were to act as goal umpires during the finals. -Yours, ec, 10/8/09. BALNARRING.

NOTES. Football is "booming" at Morning tOn. Red, white, and blue "stock" has gone up 100 per cent during the last fortnight. The. Mornington v. Hastinos match altracted 500 p-opie on Saturday, which shows the interest that is taken when the clubs ,are playing for the premier-hip under Association ruses. 'Ihe rattling good performainces by the Morniungron team over Sorrenlto and Dromaua was excelled on Satur day, when they defeated Hastings, (t.he leading team) by 30 points. M'ornmngton were much the faster team; their condition was solid, as was evidenced in the second half, when they put on 6 goals to 1, and they finished like stayers. iMornington were undoubtedly the superior team, and if they can main tain the form shown recently they will take some beating in the semi final. Mornington ground was very fair considering the amount of rain which had fallen. It has gone back to what it used to be, and is now covered with onion grats over six inches long in p'aces.

MOOROODUC. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 14 August 1909
After continual wet weather, we have had two whole fine days, with a drying northerly wind that put a crust on the boggy soil, but rain again set in as heavy as any experienced this win ter, causing all low lands to become flooded (also the roads in liany places), and large washaways have been caused. Such heavy and continuons rains have not been experienced for nimany winters past, and the prediction from some is that the coming Spring will be a good one, owing to the subsoil 'receiving a thorough soaking. The main road near the local State school is being grubbed, and the growthy young saplings are being laid low. Dr. Somers, whose property faces this road, is having light let in by having the timber cut into lirewuoot. and already quite a ddlf'rent, appea. - ance is made. On the Annesteiglh Estate, Mr Falls is having a large poi tion of new ground ploughed for fal low. A good deal of this land was tussock grass, but by the aid of a large disc plough, drawn easily by the well know...

FOOTBALL. Peninsula Association. HASTINGS v. MORNINGTON. 3IORNINGTON WIN BY 30 POINTS. GREAT EXCITEMENT. Hastings and Mornington met on the latter's ground on Saturday, for the second time this season, the previous game being an easy win for Hastings. There was great interest taken in the match, for the Morning ton team has been rapidly improving. and supporters were hopeful of stop ping Hastings march of progress. There was an attendance of about 500 people. The ground was in good order, considering the rain that had fallen during the week, several of cington's ardent supporters having the ground for the match. On public form, there was general anticipation of a close and interesting contest, but the result was extremely disappoint ing, as Mornington never looked like losing, Hastings only showing up in the first half. Mornington, with the wind behind them at the start, did not do as well as was expected, their for ward play being a bit faulty in the opening quarter, only scliog 8 ...

Always Ailing. What a world of meaning these two words convey. Yet in thousands of homes the same tale is told of sick and ailing wives and daughters who suffer from constant headaches, loss of energy, loss of appetite, depression, habitual constipation, and frequent attacks of Biliousness and Indigestion. "I have been a martyr to Bilious ness and violent headaches all my life," says Miss Evelyn Arthur, 83 Langridge street, Collingwood. "In deed, 1 was always ailing. These attacks would come on at periods of three or four weeks, and I would vomit, and suffer in a terrible man ner. I was induced by my mother to try Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills, and took two or three on alternate nights for sonme time until I seemed to out grow the attacks. I still take a dose occasionally, and I have not had a re turn of the violent attacks since. T would not be without Dr. MIorse's Indian Root Pills, for they are a wonderful medicine for girls." Are you always ailing ? If so, do not give'up hope; d...

The book is entitled "The Destructive In sects of Victoria," by C. French, Government entomologist, and con tains 196 pages, neatly bound, with 31 handsome colored plates. Inter esting articles on the pests that attack fruit trees, shrubs, plants, etc., are given, the first being devoted to fruit flies. The best methods of eradicating the insects are explained, and the best and most efficient spray ing formulas given. An interesting feature of the book is the portion de voted to the insect destroying birds the ,r-chardists' best friends. In its reference to the Babbler, or Codlin Moth bird, the publication says : " The bird is undoubtedly one of the orchatrdist's best friends, as it has a distinct partiality for the larve and pup:w .,: the Codlin MIoth.

Federal Association. FRANKSTON v. MOORABBIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 14 August 1909
Federal Association. FRANKSTON v. 3OORABBIN. The last matches in the first round of the Federal Association were played on Saturday. Frankston had another very easy task on hand, and defeated Moorabbin in hollow fashion by 16-13 2-8. The match was played on the Moorabbin ground, and the visitors were represented by a somewhat weak eighteen, several of their leading players being absent. The members of the Frankston team wore crape bands on their arms, one of their play ers, Jack Renouf, having suffered a bereavement in the death of his father during the week. 'Their clever little wing man has the sympathy of footballers and supporters in his sad bereavement. It was pleasing to note the improvement in the systematic play of Frankston on Saturday, and evidently some of the members have profited by our remarks last issue. With cool heads, a resolution to put heart into their work, the ied and blacks have a great chance of beating Ellindale in the semi-final match this afternoon. If the...
CHELTENHAM v. MORDIALLOC [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 14 August 1909
CHELTENHAM v. MORDIALLOC There was a gathering of about 1500 spectators at this match at Chel tenham on Saturday, but the game proved a disappointment. There was very little good football shown. most of the play being individual effort, and the marking and kicking on the whole very poor. Harris was missed by Cheltenham, and this fine player wou'd have had a splendid opportunicy in the air. On the Mordialloc side, Balfe was the most noticeable absen tee. The game was even till half time, but after that Cheltenham never gave the other team a chance, and won easily, the scores being-Chelten ham 4-19, Mordialloc 2-8. Butler was Cheltenham's most prominent man, his dashes on the wing being very effective, though'.King, who scored 3 goals, put in solid work. Cliff Bourne was the best man on the ground till half-time, though he got very little assistance from the others of the Mordialloc'team. On the previous meeting between these teams, Mordi alloc won by one point.
