AN advertisement concerning a cure for the cigarette habit, the evil effects of which were referred to by a correspond- ent last issue, is published this week, from Mr A. Wilson, the well-known herbalist, of Walker Street, Prahran. RECORD entries have been received for the Melbourne Royal Show, com- mencing on August 31st. Mr Andrew Buchanan, of "Gleneira," Flinders, has entered 30 head of his well-bred Ayrshire cattle in various sections. MR D. Macfarlan's chance of gaining the seat for the West Riding in the Flin- ders and Kangerong shire seems to be very good, but owing to his recent sad bereavement he is unable to do the active canvassing which may be expected of him as a new man for council honors. SIIEEP-KILLING dogs received a check on Sunday, when Mr E. Fritsch, of Red Hill, shot...

SOMERVILLE. - - DEATH OF MRS CLARKE. Mrs G. Clarke, widow of the late Mr George Clarke, passed quietly away on Sunday afternoon at her residence. Tower House. Mrs Clarke was a daughter of Mr E. Murray, sen., one of the old residents of this district, who at an advanced age is in good health, and was enabled to attend the funeral on Tuesday.

Martin, Missses Alice and Elma and Messrs James, George, Percy, Leon ard, Rolly, Stanley, and Murray. Mrs Clarke had a large circle of friends and was very much a favorite with all, owing to her kind heart and cheerful. manner.

Our Letter Box. (We do not necessarily identify our..lee, with the opinions expresaal 1y correspoaudets) FLINDERS AND KANGERONG SHIRE. Sir,-Now that there is a contest for the vacant seat in the council for the West riding, ratepayers should make an earnest study of the council balance-4.heet for the past eight or nine years. The amount of outstanding rates and arrears of sanitary rates in the West riding, together with the fact that the counciP has an everlast ing overdraft on which interest has to be paid; the disgraceful state of the Rosebud and Boneo roads every winter, notwithstanding the large amount of rates paid by property holders in the vicinity, go a long way to show that it is time there was a change in the personnel of the council The bungling on the part of council lors in connection with their dealing with one of the late shire secretaries, which I contend led to the council 'illegally wiping out a considerable amount and thereby condoning a serious irregularity on th...
CARRUM v. ERROLIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 21 August 1909
CARR.UM v. ERROLTANS. This match was played at Carrum on Saturday last. The visitors trav elled from Melbourne by motor, reach ing Carrum at 20 past 3, and the game was commenced at about 20 minutes to 4. At the commenncement it seemed that there would be a very keen contest, nut the fact that the visitors were in an overtrained condi tion was evident at the end of the first quarter, when the locals scored four goals in quick succession. In the second " quarter, Carrum added another 4 goals the scores at half time being 8 goals, 2 behinds to 5 behinds. In the third and foiurthlqudrters, the -visitors some what recovered themselves, with the result that during those stages of the game, honours were equally divided. The final scores were: Carrum 10 goals 5 behinds. Errolians 2 goals 8 behinds. A. feature of the game was the fine goal-kicking of the local team. The match was contested in a very fine spirit, there not being one unpleasant incident to mar the occasion. Those who played b...
A FOOTBALL MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 21 August 1909
A FOOTBALL MATCH. Sir,-Kindly grant me space to cor rect a statement made by your Dro mana correspondent on the Morning ton v. Dromana football match on July. 31st He says "a great deal of time was wasted by the visitors be fore they decided to play on the locals' ground." Now, Sir, this is not true. The time was wasted by Dromana's good sporting men. I will give the public the facts of the case. When 1Mlornington team arrived the umpire gave his opinion that the ground was too wet, whereupon a I)romana gentle man kindly gave his consent to play on his ground, where they have goal posts and a dry ground (not a pig sty). Everyone adjourned to the dry ground, except. one or two of the Dro mana players, who interviewed the owner (Mr Wilson) and persuaded him to refuse permission to play on his ground. The..umpire had- blown. his whistle to start the game, when the*news arrived. The consequence was that everyone had to quit- the premises over a barb-wire entangle ment, and back to the p...
Notes by Observer. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 21 August 1909
Notes by Observer. Frankston defeated. The fight was a hard one-lots of go. Frankston team badly handled ned badly placeo ; half-a dozen 'mugs' afield. Umpiring very unsatisfactory, or worse Ruck and backs Frankston's strong de partments. Lawrey rucked it splendidly, but the unly help he got was from the veteran Croskell. These two are great grafters. O. Pettit excelued himself on the back line and saved the situation time and again ; his judgment in marking was splendid. Bert bhannon was at his best ; he was taken from the forward line when most wanted. Hi high marking was a treat. Bert Sherlock, the team's most cosis tent man right through the season, did good service whenever ha got a chance, and, as usual, got very little assistance from the others. Donoghue played very badly. He, however, has been on the sick list, as also has Joe Barrett. . Syd O'Neill in great form, and played the game of his life when following. He was cool and sure, and shepherded Jolly with, great judgment...

Of Interest to Orchardists. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 21 August 1909
Of Interest to Orchardists. WVith an early Spring. the - season for fruit spraying will soon be upon us, and our orchardist readers will have to decide what they will use, first, as a preventative of Black Spot, and shortly after, to meet the repeated attacks of Codlin ,Moth. Regarding the first, they will have little ,difficulty. For all fungous diseases, nothing has been found superior to the now long-estab lished Bordeaux 3lixture, which every large grower can readily make for him self, whilst snmaller growers, or those with a number of varieties of apples or pears, will use the Copper-Soda, which they can obtain already prepared for use, at the nearest store. Spraying for Codlin .\loth is another story, as MrKipling says. Most fruit growers have burned their orchards, at one time or another, by using remedies either homemade or prepared ready for use by persons or firms to whom we suppose we miust give credit for good intent:on, but who, perhaps, have not I the ntcessaLry experi...

Ellindale also added 1.2, and the scores we..: . n at the first change, though on ;he whole it was Frankston's quarter, and four or five goals should have been scored.
