Orchard Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 April 1911
Orchard Notes. (By E.E. Pecott, from "Journal of Agriculture.') The principal work this month will be the gathering and storing of apples and pears. Stored fruit needs more attention and care than that gathered for immediate sale. The fruit should be carefully handled, and not thrown about in -any way, nor should it be bruised. No cracked or injured fruit should be allowed in the storage room. I Owing to the excessively wet season, a greater percentage than usual of cracked and split fruit is present, and this will very speedily rot. It should be disposed of at once. Such varieties as Rokewood,. Schroeder's Apfel, Shockley, Yates, Rome Beauty, Stone Pippin, and Mellon's Seedling are all good keepers, and useful for storage pur poses. The latter apple is winning its way among orchardists, and it is a desirable apple for the late local markets. In its natural home, at Dunolly, where it was raised some years ago, it keeps very late ; and, in many instances, is quite sound early, in Nov...

The fo'lowing letter, received from Mr Williams by Mr Chamberlin, shows that the pre sentation was highly appreciated by Mr and Mrs Williams: "I left with the unpleasant feel ing that I had not properly ex pressed to all of you at the Frank ston station the other day my appreciation of the handsome and valued presentation you made to me. Quite apart from the intrinsic value, the special value to me will always be the signatures, and also the presence at the station of the gentlemenwho brought the souvsenir and gave my wife and myself such a kindly send-off. I hope you will be able to express to some of these kind friends how much we appre ciated the kindly thought which prompted all, and to assure them that we shall keep the handsome gift as one of our most valued pos sessions."

The result of the referenda, which, for the past few months, has been prominently before the people of the Commonwealth, has, up to the present (and there seems no likelihood of the figures being al tered), resulted in a pronounced victory for the "No." All the States, with the exception of West ern Australia, polled heavily against the proposals of the Labor Government, Victoria being the most emphatic in their protest.

Thegame, we understand, was very 'willing,' several arguments occuring. The result was a win for Somerville by 7" points, the game being very even throughout, Representatives of the Mlornington and Frankston junior football teams met in a friendly game at Franksteo on Monday.

HASTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 April 1911
HASTINGS. The redoubtable Hastings, by all reports, are eager for the fray to com mence. They have retained the majority of last year's players, who are all in tip-top fettle, having been as-iduous y training for some time. No -tone is ever left unturned by Hastings to procure the best possible results, and their aiforts, for the past soeces-fa. Th- unanimous vote of the club was that Jimmy Wilson should be re elecel captain, and no bever choice could have b-?s Inade. He is a clean player ond a capable okipp.r, and, no doubt, his cptaincy is a geat factor in the team's success. We understand that Andy Amen do'a had a run with ],ornin-tn io S.turday, just to 'get his hand in,' so that he will be all the more fit when he takes his place as rover for his old club. I he ~ame rolid ruck as did battle so well l«t year wi 1 again b: together. Francis and Robinson are two solid fo'lowers, and Amendola a very clever iov, r.

FRANKSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 April 1911
FRANKSTON. Frankston have commenced the s-ason in earne', and on Saturday pr.ctically all the tcm were in colors. They engaged in a match. with the 'Stretchers' (campers at Frankston), and, though the footbal was not of the highest standad, a good practice game resulted. The 'Stretchers' were a 'mixed lot,' and were simply out for fun. The most conspicuous man on the side was big 'Joe,' who, attired in full South Melbourne costume, looked every inch a football-r. The play was very rough, but of a friend'y spirit, hard humps being very numerous, though all the players emerged from the fray unharmed, with the excep tion of a'few unfortunate ones, The result was a win for Frankston by a small majority. The seasiders have some frash talent to strengthen their ranks this season, Gunther and Ellis being two u-eful men. The latter has p'enty of dash, and will be very handy, while Gunther marks nicely and kicks well two leading features. H. Dennis tosk his place in the team after an absence...

Original Poetry. (To a Departing Friend.) [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 April 1911
Original Poetry, (To a Departing Friend.) When you are on the rolling wave, Far off and outof sight of lana, Think oft of those who grasped your hand As sorrowful farewells they gave. Far out we'll watch the trail of black That marks the steamer's onward course ; Our hearts will only feel remorse Until oace more we get you back. 'Constant and true you've alwaysproved To those who ever wished you well; Your leaving strikes a doleful knell, Where ofttimes other feelings moved. Farewell kind friend I a last good-bye With thoughts that cling to days now past, Of happy hours, which could not last, We spent togeher-you and I. -To fticedship's name we'll Hll be true, Though, perhaps, for years we dwell apart, We'll keep your niche within our heart . In spite of this last sad adieu.

SOMERVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 29 April 1911
SOIIERVILLE. Somerville, as shown by the result of thir game with Mornington on Saturday, are in fine working order, and have a very good ride. No doubt the players stick to each other well, and they, probably, will show the re. sultvery forcibly during the season. Billy .Monk, the energetic secretary, has been thinking of 'turning the game ut,' but he has responded to the call of "We want you Billy," and has decided to strip for the team. We understand that Percy Thornell received a nasty knock during the match on Saturday It is to be hoped the injury will pass off before the com mencement of the seasin, as Percy is a handy forward, and along with "Kenny' Webb, the goal-kicking is well looked after Several useful men from Tooradin district are spoken of as likely starters, whilst some of Tyabb's team might throw in their lot with the 'yellow and blues.'
