APPRECIATION. The Organ of the Peninsula. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 17 February 1922
APPRECIATION." The Organ of the Peninsula. To the Editor. Sir,-Some few. years back a person, well known at Frankston for his musical abilities, on look ing through the "Standard," passed the remark that the paper which claimed to be "the organ of the Peninsula" wanted a good deal of tuning. Whether the re mark was justified at the time is of no moment now. The idea gave scope to the thought that the paper was an organ and that it reproduced in its weekly reci tal the notes that had been com posed by the happenings of the previous week. The score had been written by many hands and in its theme were the many phrasings of human life, with its lights and shades and throughout all the dominant note was ad vancement and prosperity. The "Standard" of to-day is a credit to the Peninsula and will con tinue to advance. I am pleased to join others with good wishes for the welfare of the "Standard," and hope that the future will produce a series of grand triumphal marches, in which the notes o...

PEARCEDALE. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 17 February 1922
PEARCEDALE. A good deal of surprise has been expressed that the rates have not been lowered this year, now thatthe ledger was squared a few mionths ago. Two years ago landholders found their rates raised from too per cent. to 300 per cent., the reason being given that . Tooradin Riding was heavily involved.;: It' is impera tive for councillors to afford some relief or face an agitation for severance. Tl'he crops, .hay,'friuit and vege tables are all on the light side. Owing to the stringent mail ner in which the Dog Act has been enforced, the balance of nature has been disturbed, there is consequently a-remarkable in crease in foxes.: People on all sides complain of losing poultry. One returned soldier has lost over 6o pure bred Leghorn hens.. A great deal of dissatisfaction has been expressed at the recent appointment of - a dayman for this portion of the shire. It was confidently expected that a local returned soldier, with a young family, would receive the job. Instead of this an...
