The Naval Base. WORK TO BE PUSHED ON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 18 May 1912
The Naval Base.' &nbsp; &nbsp; WORK TO BE PUSHED ON. Senator Pearce, Minister for De- fence, made a statement on Monday, in regard to the torpedo depot and gunnery school about to be established at Westernport Bay. He explained that statements cir culated in the press had made it appear that the defence works at the Flinders naval base would be delayed until the Department was able to obtain the use of a dredge. Such a statement was incorrect. It was proposed to proceed with the other works at the base, which were of an extensive character, involving the building of barracks for the accommodation of the staff and men, workshops for the construction and repair of torpedo requirements, a technical schoolroom, and the accommodation for a torpedo and gunnery school. The money re quired would be provided on the forthcoming. Federal estimates. It was wrong to say that it was necessary for a dredge to be procured before the work could be continued. While the work was in pro...

Toot Your Own Horn. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 25 May 1912
Toot Your Own Horn. 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 ho'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 (loves and pigeons coo. The peacock spreads his tail and squawks; pigs squeal and robins sing, and even serpents know en-i ough to hiss before they sting. But man, the greatest masterpiece I that Nature could devise, will often , stop and hesitate before he'l advertise I

Orchard Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 25 May 1912
Orchard Notes. , By E. E. Pescott, in "Journal of Ag riculture." There are indications that the com ing planting sesaon will be one of con siderably increased activity. The pro spects for the fruit trade were never so good, and it is anticipated that this industry will advance in many ways in the near future. Such being the case, it will be wise not to unduly rush the planting of the trees, but to make every endeavour to have them planted in soil which has been well and truly prepared for their reception. The months of June and July are the most favourable for planting in this State; the warmer the climate, the earlier the planting season. There is thus amplo time for pro paring the land thoroughly before the planting is done. The land must be in a first class physical condition for the planting of the young trees. The first and foremost necessity is good soil drainage; and this may be accom plished by. a deep system of subsoil ing, or by the laying down of tile. timber, or cinder d...
OUR LETTER BOX. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents). To the Editor of the "Standard." [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 25 May 1912
OUR LETTER BOX. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinicns expressed by corres pondents). To the Editor of the "Standard." Sir,-Adverting to the advertisement of the Frankston Choral Society ap pearing in this issue, I desire your readers to refer to it, and to care fully note-its contents. I have learned that somo individuals are labouring under a misapprehension, and appear to think that our members are picked and selected from those possessing knowledge of interpretation and the fine arts of singing, and, further, that the Society is not open to all, and not open to members of any other society that may exist. The writer, on be half of the committee, wishes to say that we welcome all, and cordially in vite all to join. Unity is strength, and this we desire. We have engaged a talented pianist, who is also an expert vocal ist, and one whom it would be difficult to excel. Our conductor has few, if any, superiors in the profession, and to surpass him would be difficu...
AN ENQUIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 25 May 1912
AN ENQUIRY. Sir,-Would you, through the mr lium of your columns, tell me what has been done by the Penin sula Football Association in re gard to compensating the Frank ston team, who, last season, were successful in oblaining the premier ship. Four years ago, the year of the squabble between Frankston and Hastings as to the right of claiming the honor of being pre e miers, the people of Mornington were, I believe, instrumental in canvassing their district, and buy ing a premiership pennant, which y Hastings, in juxtaposition with others, proudly flier. The original trophy was, I am also led to be lieve, given to the Frankstoii team, ' but not until a solicitor's advice had been obtained on the matter. Each sequent year Hastings have been premiers, and have always b received a pepnant. Although not now a resident of the Peninsula, I e still take an interest in its welfare, and, so far, have seen nothing mentioned in your columns of any presentation being made. I be lieve in 'Honor to...

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 25 May 1912
NOTES. .Mornington's improved form has been the topic lately, and it looks as if the 'Point' boys will take a leading hand in the premiership destination. Starting off with.a poor showing against Frankston-who were subse quently beaten by Hastings and Somerville-lMornington ran Somer ville to three points, and then gave Hastings a hard "go," only being beaten by six points, after leading at three quarter time, and p'aying prac. ticilly half the game without Booth, one of the best men in the Peninsula. On paper, Frankston's chance against the Point boys on the latter's ground this afternoon is a remote one, for the former a ere defeated easily by Hast ings, and by 12 points by Somerville, both of which teams practically just "scratched home' agairst Morning tolln. Something needs to be done to do away with the late starting nuisance. It. was after 3.30 at- both Somerville and Mornington last Saturday before the ball was bounced for the start, and consquently the last quarters were pl...
