FRANKSTON INVADED Twice during the week Frankston suffered an invasion. The first, by a rowdy mob on Sunday, caused the police no little concern. Hotelkeepers were also concerned. It was rumored that Senior-Constable Thorburn de- monstrated that he is the possessor of a wicked right hook, but this has been denied. The second invasion was of a more pleasant nature, and was by an artillery unit en route to Mt. Martha on Tuesday. Shops did brisk trade when the men, halted for lunch outside Frankston.
