Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 13 April 1912
Toot Your Own. orn. A hen is not supposed to have much common sense or tact, yet every time she lays an egg she cackles forth the fact. A rooster hasn't got a lot of in tellect to show, but none the less most roosters have enough good sense to crow. The mule the most despised of beasts, has a presistent way of letting people know he's around by his insistent bray. The busy little bees they' buzz, bulls bellow and cows moo, and watch-dogs bark and ganders quack and doves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail and squawks; pigs squeal and robins sing, and even serpents know en ough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece that Nature could devise, will often stop and hesitate before he'll, advertise I

h Frankston and Hastings ie ?Shire Hall Again. I DISCUSSION AT THE COUNCIL ° TABLE, At the Frankston and Hastings a council meeting at Somerville on Wednesday, the shire office question was again revived, when two reaslu 1 tions bearing upon the subject caused considerable discussion. In ordinary business, Crs Cole I and Alden moved "That the minute i book lie on the council table at Somerville from 9.30 till 10.30 a.m. on the second Wednesday in each month." Cr Cole said the Act required that the minute book should lie open for inspection. Cr Hodgins said to stipulate one hour a month was only fencing with the Act.
