Kananook Creek. COUNCILLOR'S AND EX-COUNCILLOR'S OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 4 September 1909
Kanandoii C?eek= COUNCILLOR'S AND EX-COUN CILLOR'S OPINIONS. The money in hand, received from the council some time back by the Progress League, towards cleaning out the channel at the rear of Bay street, is being spent to good advan tage. MIr J. Peters has taken on contract the work of removing tIhe reeds, debris, etc., and clearing the channel generally from the flood gates to a chain or so above Playne-street. The mouth of the creek remains open, and a constant wash of water has been flowing since the sand bank wa.s re moved. The flood gates have done good work in creating a strong sýour, and have proved effective in holding back the water. At high tide, with the gates lifted, the water hais backed to a good depth to a little above Playne-street, and it has been demon strated in a practical manner that, with the mouth of the creek free of sand and thus a chance of the sea water entering, considerable improve meat can be effected in the state of the stream. A LITTLE HISTORY. At th...
TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 4 September 1909
TYABB. It is with regret that I have to record the death of Mrs Lester, whose illness I referred to a fortnight ago. The deceased lady passed away at about 5 p.m. on Thursday, the end having been anxiously watched for all day. During the past fortnight the reports from the sick room had been " a little easier, improving slowly," which made en quires hope that we should see our genial station and post-mistress on duty again, consequently, her death was a shock to many here. Mrs Lester will be greatly missed; as, during the ten years she has been a resident she has taken a prominent part in public move ments, such as concerts, bazaars in aid of the Hall, the Happy Hour Club, and also the local church of England. Her sorrowing husband and family have the heart-felt sympathy of all in this district. The remains were con veyed by the early train on Friday for interment at Creswick. &nbsp; Out of respect for the late Mrs Lester, who was for some years secre tary and treasurer of t...

WOODLUPINE, Y.A. MIr Thos. Hepworth, P.O.. Woodlupine, W.A., writes as follows:-'- I am a timber millhand, and have been working at Wor sley, near Collie. I caught a bad cough twelve months ago. '1 used to cough until I felt quite exhausted, and a friend of mine in Perth sent me a large bottle of Dr. Shel don's New Discovery, and the effect was marvellous. After taking only a dose of it I went to bed, and, strange to say, never coughed once in the night, and by the time I had taken half a bottle (which wis three days), I was back at work again, and now there is always a bottle of it in the house. I might mention I had a doctor attending me for a fortnight, but without success."

A Little Common Sense. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 11 September 1909
A Little Common Sense. In using' any kind of medicine a little common sense is always necessary. Dr Morse's.Iudian .Root Pills are com pounded tonmeet the general require ments of mran, woman, and child, both weaktand ,strong,:iand in prescribing the dses'of fr m one to four pills, the actual numbehltnecessary in each. case must be.?det'iriin'ed according to the age and condition of the patient. A dose however,. should be sufficient to move the bowels ht lease twice, and although relief may be obtained at once it is always advisable to take a pill or two'on the following night. In some instauces the first dose may cause a little pain and sickness, which will not recur subsequently. The cause is due to the large flow of bile into the intes tines, which the Pills have let loose by opening the congested ductswhichhave been clogged up, perhaps for months. Do not blame the Pills if under these conditions you feel sick: You will feel better afterwards, and if you adopt Dr. Morse's Indian ...

Orchard Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 11 September 1909
'Orchard -Notes. . By J. Cnons, n THE "JOURNAL OF AGBICULTURE.n. Planting and pruning deciduous trees should be completed this month. If the work is deferred much longer it will clash with important opera tions of a differing character, and will also tend to prevent maximum results being obtained, even if proper means and methods are employed. In warm Northern districtsparticu larly, planting should be finished early to enable the young trees to become in a measure established before the hot weather sets in; it is also import ant that the trees generally should be pruned before active growth begins or a decided check'may follow. Pruningishould be especially hast ened where sucking insects infest the trees, so that a thorough spraying with a strong wash may be applied. It is perfectly safe to use oil emulsions before bud movement begins at a strength that will destroy any scales, red spider eggs, or aphides that may be present, while damage would be almost sure to follow a similar ap...

MOOROODUC. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 11 September 1909
MOOROOUDUC. The week just ended has been typical Show weather-soft rain, and plenty of mud. Many journeyed to the city to see the display, which proved to be a record. The weai her there for the lat ter days was much finer, giving visitors from here a pleasant surprise. The chaff-cutting firm that has been traversing the district returned to "Annesleigh" to have another go at the large-stacks of hay, and as they were fortunate enough in striking a few fine days, quickly ran up a good total in the tonage of chaff cut, and were soon able to leave, minus an odd bullock that found the winter too long and trying. A well-known property, for many years owned by, and known as Wood's paddock, has changed hands privately, the purchasers being Messrs C. Un thank and Sons, who own a large pro perty'across the road, and have gone in extensively for orcharding, garden ing, farming, and the breeding. of horses. At the Tanti market on Monday, cattle and pigs were fully represented. Suckers, which w...

-Our Letter Box. (We do not necessarily identify ouraeleea' with the opinions expressed y oonrrespondents) SFOOTBALL. TO THE EDITOR OP THE STAN?DARD Sir,-Kindly grant me space to reply to the letter of "Balnarring," in your issue of September 4th. (1.) If Mornington or any other club have reasonable grounds for objecting to a player they are quite right in doing so. "Balnarring" would be the first to bark if Mornington played a man against his club whom he thought was not eligible to play. I don't expect the heavier men to tread gingerly when playing against the little fellows, but I like to see the game played with a little of the element of fairness in it. Re.the match at Somerville, no ex ception could be taken to the play of Balnarring. Two or three of the lefornington players I have spoken to, who very loudly condemned Balnarring for their play at 'Balnarring, were equally loud in their praise for the fair way in which Balnarring played the game at Somerville.--Yours, etc., ONL...
