I meet quite a lot of people on the Peninsula whose pet hobby is grumbling about the weather. At present they grumble rather unjustly, .but when they "cross the bourne from whence no trav ellers return"-thev might have reason to grumble about the sev erity of the climate ! He was travelling to Stony Point. When the train stopped at Somerville, he poked his top piece out.of the window, and, in a husky voice, asked a youth, "Have I got time to get over to Copsey's for;.drink?

"Yes," he drawled, ' you've got time to get over alright, but you ain't got time to get back I" WISE AND OTHERWISE. It is a wise man. who makes the best of it when he gets the worst of it.

APPRECIATION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922
APPRECIATION." To the Editor. Sir,-Mr George Upton, some issues since, had the thoughtful ness to congratulate you on the excellence of the literary matter of "The'Standard." Whilst Mr Upton's tribute concerns you pri marily, it is also a tribute to the small army of district correspon dents you have, who, by their ef forts, are helping you to make the Peninsula one of the richest areas in the State.. Very many unthinking people under-rate the service the country Press renders the State, and one of these intel ligent people has been airing his views in the city Press lately. He 'slates the country Press in rare style. He complains of the space the country editors devote to roads, bridges, parish politics, etc, and dilates on the literary. standard of the country Press, which he considers very crude' and deficient. As to the first, he forgets that the making of roads and bridges is a fundamental and contributory source of the na-. tion's greatness, in which case, it demands the suppo...

BITTERN DEFEAT CRIB POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922
BITTERN DEFEAT CRIB POINT. Bittern elected to come to Crib Point last Saturday. and" play their match on their opponents' ground. The object was the. new concrete pitch at Crib Point on the Recreation Reserve, at the rear of the State school. The playing arena has been cleared..and by a series of working bees the ground has been improved. All that is now required is a heavy downpour of rain to consolidate the surface, and a fine raking of the out field. The next question to be con sidered is the erection of a shelter shed and conveniences on the ground, and later the fencing of the area, at. a policy of tree planting. Saturday's match, although it did not.constitute:the official opening, at tracted a good crowd of Bittern and Crib Point people, and an enjoyable gamne - resulted " The wicket, played true..
