MORNINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 4 October 1890
MORNINGTON; (FROI OUW OWu s ow-I Coasro?nDEYT.) Spring timeis raiidlr'approaching and the surrounding country is now assuming a verdant green, owing to the increased warmth of the ground consequent upon the strength of the sun's rays. The days and nights being now of equal duration, we have have had a taste of the equinoctial gales during the earlier part of the week, wheni at times it blew almost strong enough to verify the proverbial saying of nautical men and leave anyone exposed to its fury,, without-head gear, bald-headed for the rest of, their natural life. Mr John Byrne head teacher of the State school here having applied for a position"- nearer town owing -to" his family being grown up, and wishing to obtain situations for them, and.. havo them under parental control,ih h'as been superceded by Mr Adaina of falven, a gentleman' very highly spoken of.

FLINDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 4 October 1890
SFLINDERS. (Fno O.R OWN ,coRRESPON . The decision of the shire council iibo to permit the curtailment of the old established road from Boyd's, on the main road, to Singleton's, will be welcomed by all who desire to. have the rights and privileges of the people presewved. .How, such a principle as to'thke 'f?oim one; iad=give to another section of the community, a "robbing of Peter to pay Paul," i~ould be, regar ded as just and equitable, it is difficult to understand. Had Cr Baldry made a proposition in favor of opening a new road on its own merits, without complicating it with a contingent conditiosi that a road leaditng in another direction be sacrified, he would un doubtedly have had everyone with him. Now the effect of his ill advised action action (I say this with due regagt for Cr Baldry, who is desevedly popular) has, been to set up a counter demon stration and has probably irtitatedand prejudiced many who might otherwise have joined him heartily. Some of the arguments in fav...
OVERWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 4 October 1890
S'OvEiwonst.- Overwork both mental and bodily, is at-once the most general and tile least regarded forn of illness to which we are liable in the present age. Do what we may, it is next to impossible to escape from it; but there is at all events a certain satis faction in binig able to recognise its features. Its treatment in individual cases req uircs chiefly that dile attetioh be paid to the twio great essentials of timely rest and wholesome diet. Work however irksome, may, it is generally allowed, be undertaken on a very liberal scale if only it is not too coin tinuoiis, but is broken by timely and adequate intervals of rest. The value of a plain and liberal dietary is hardly, less, and we- may take it as a maixim that, so long as appetite and sleep are unimpaired, there is no dangerous degree of' overworik anid,; conversely that a faiilure in either of these respects should: be regarded as a warning, to whiich attention should be" aiiid ;l reliefing the strain of exerti in.

Mornington Standard. "Not timidly, nor rashly." PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. 4th OCTOBER, 1890. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 4 October 1890
..Not timidly, nor rashly." PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. 4th OCTOBER, 1890. THE poet, Burns,' in one of hlis :lyrics said, "0 would the powers some gifte gie us, to see ourselves as others see us.'' Judging from the following which'we take from an English scientific journal, of repute we do not yet appear in a very favorable light in the eyes of those who reside at the antipodes. The paragraph reoerred to is in reply to the query of a co:respondent who wishes to know if the irrigatioa colonies of Mildura in Victoria and'Renmark iii South. Australia, do ,not offer very special' ridrantages for labor ? The reply is' ':I think I can safely say no ; the chief reason being the world-wide curse of the land .,ononoly which strangles enterprise through the selfislmhness of moneyed individua's who wish to obtain wealth without exertion on their own part by levying tribite on those who do labor." The writer then goes on to assert that when the colonies were. first started; land was procu...

Miss Mitford denied the assertion, with considerable warmth. . r ; ' . They had to pass through a gate. Suddenly a boy who was leading a cow started forward and oliened the gate for them.' Miss Mitford was delighted; it was a death-blow to her antagonist. The lady was more than surprised. " Ah," said she to. the lad, you're not Beirkshire, I'm sure!." " Theer't a liar, vor I be !" was the rough answer that took Miss Mitford aback and sustained her' antagonist. Mr S.

SCIENTIFIC NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 4 October 1890
SCIENTIFIC NOTES. There is waribetween the: telephone companies and the electric tramways in the United States. The tramways are accused of rendering unworkable the telephone wires,- ini consequence of the induced foreign electric currents set uip in the wires, which are partic ularly sensitive to interference of this kind. Even the swing of the overhead wires effect the sensitiveness of the telephone; and so does,'the alternating system of generating electric light recently. ,'introduced. -in -.'Boston, Massachusetts, where they now never hope to make use of the telephone after 9 o'clock owing to the. electric light. There is only one way of averting the adverse influence of 'the tramways. namely, by compelling the tramway, companies to use metallic circuits everywhere ;, but these com paniesask why the telephone companies do not use metallic circuits themselves. The telephonists are the only grumblers and if they can protect themselves they should do -so at their own cost. The jud...
