A.O.F. Mornington. ANNUAL BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 November 1909

A.O.F. Mornington. - -t- ANNIUAL BALL. .The anniversary ball in connection with the Court Star of Morniogton A.O.F. was held in the Mechanics' Institute on Friday night last, and proved a most enjoyable and financial success. The hall was tastefully -de corated with evergreens, and the sec-_ rotary (Mr R. Stanley),and' committee did all in their power to make the evening as: enjoyable as possible. The music supplied by Schrader's hand, was all that could.be desired, and was greatly appreciated by the 50 couples present,. the only drawback being the state of the floor, which was very heavy, owing to the slkating of the past season, having quite lost its formier and.much admired condition. Some of the ladies' dresses were very pretty. At. 12 o'clock refreshments were handei round by the committee, who- wore their regalia,- after, which danrcig?«as resumed till, the early hours of :;the morning?. Mr J. HTailes as M.C. carried out his duties' in a satisfactory mauner.

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 November 1909

Original Poetry.. Here Bill old chap ve'll have aspell, And let the horses blow, We've had enough.of heat and dust Between here and Boneo. This creek's no stranger to me Bill, More like an old-time friend, So light your pipe and smoke old chap For an hour with it I'll spend. It's waters so enticing, Sparkling cold and clear, Gushing from that shady cover And babbling o'er these sands of gold. See that willow yonder, Uprooted by the flood Borne away to seaward, From place where once it stood. This is but an item Among the changes here of late, There Tuck's children played beneathit In the year of.forty-eight, Still remain some landmarks In early days I've seen, Recall the shadowy past And What this has been. WVhen Yal Yal and his swarthy tribe Were roaming here at will ; Again I see their camp out yonder In the old horse paddock on the hill, They.alone our neighbours, SExcepting Barber's men, Daily hunting for their quarry And I think were happy then Ve children of those days Scarce ...

Rifle Shooting. FRANKSTON v. RED HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 November 1909

RifleiShfoting. --------~-- -r FRANKSTON v. RED HILL. t The annual visit of the Frankston riflemen to Red Hill took place on Saturday last, when a party of 12 were favored with beautiful we »the r for a pleasant day's outing. Starting about nine o-clock, with a rest just beyond Moorooduc for refreshments, Red Hill was reached at 12.30. An energetic bevy of ladies had pre pared an excellent repast in the pavilion, to which ample justice was done by the visitors. The match in the afternoon resulted in Frankston rewarding their entertainers by giving a splendid exhibition of shooting, most of the marksmen scoring exception ally well, and the Red Hill total was easily beaten. The veteran J. Shand was the most successful for the home team, with a score of 63. For Frank ston, the crack marksman, T. Coopdr, 1 using the "peep" attachment, was at the top with 67, eetting all bullseyes I at 400 yards. R. Lloyd, C. Grant, and J Lynch were a point beh:nd, and the team as a whole put up a splen ...

MOOROODUC. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 November 1909

MOOROODUC. With the prevailing fine weather work has been pushed on with. Crops are being cut in all directions, and several new respers and binders have come into the district.. The yield of hay will not be so light as ex pected after the wet winter. Ensilage making is in full swing, but not being practicable to do it all in one day or week, changeable weather is some times encountered such as occured on Friday, when a fierce wind blew and a heavy shower of hailstontes, followed by rain,.passed over the district ; and again on Sunday, when a very dirty north wind raged and howled, and made things most unpleasant. But still things progress, for our genial Capt. Woodhouse, has installed an up to date motor engine to try and cope with the ever increasing work, and no doubt this will put a check on that branch of pastime for a little while. Cattle are doing remarkably well this season, but every week sees a drop in the price of cream, the figure now being 10d. per lb. Wattles are being...

Orchard Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 November 1909

Orchard Notes. (D? E. E. PEsCOTr, Journal of Agri culture). Keep the soil well stirred. Spray for Codli Moth, Pear Slug Peach Aphis, and Root Borer. Examine graft ties ; rub off necessary shoots on young trees. The various cultivating implements and the spray pump should be very much in evidence during the month. Bountiful rains during the past winter have thoroughly soaked the subsoi', and there should be an ample fruit, provided it is properly conserved. This can only be done by keeping the soil surface in as fine a condition as possible; and it should be remembered Sthat to keep the soil in a good tilth is the first and main condition for successful results. No matter how good or how rich a soil may be, if the surface is not well stirred, and well earth-mulched, the moisture evapor ates frem the soil, and the tree is not able to take advantage of its fertility. Where hay crops have been grown amongst trees-and this is a very harmful practice (except on drep, rich, and moist alluv...

Obituary. MRS J. SHERIDAN. It is regretfully our duty to record the death of Mrs J. Sheridan, of Franks:on, which occurred at Franks ton on Wednesday morning last. The deceased lady was operated on a month ago f,,r an internal complaint and for a time got along splendidly. About a week after, however, she took a bad turn, and her condition becamue serious. She ralli-d at intervals since, but almost the whole of the intervening period her relatives and medical advisers were in a state of apprehension. Her sister, Mrs East wood, and Nurse Abbott, were in attendance alternately continuously, but despite carerul ,and assiduous nursing, and the medical attention of Dr Maxwell, the patient could not re gain strength. She was hopeful her self to the last, but was far weaker than she realised, and gradually sink ing, she lb-came uncouscious on Tues day night, and p~ssed peacefully away at 6.30 on Wednesday morning, Of a liberal, hospitable, cheerful, and benevolent .disposition, the de ceas...

Sensational Storm. EXCITING YACHTING EXPERIENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 November 1909

Sensational Storm.. - EXCITING YACHTING EXPERI . - ENCES. Residents liviing along the Bay can not remember a more tempestuous period than was experienced on Sun duy last. Early in the morning. the wind commenced to blow strongly, and increasing in-violence towards after noon, the whole day proved -most unpleasant. Those on land had an uncomfortable time, but those who happened to be on the Bay, with un wise disregard of the indications so threatening overnight, had a very bad and dangerous experience. Several yachting parties were forced to stay at Mornington, after putting in there on Saturday or Sunday morning. The wind blew with tremendous velocity, and raised the sea into-extraordinary tumult. A yacht owned by Mr Cullen, of Highett, whilst moored to the Frankston pier, broke away and smashing against the jetty, sank in quick time. The craft (which cost over £100) was subsequently raised by the owner and a score or so of Frankston residents, and hauled on to the beach, badly dama...

Flinders Flower Show. A GREAT' SUCCESS. Notwithstanding that the greatheat, followed by high winds, of previous week decimated some gardens, and was particularly severe on roses, the above Show was a great success. There was a fine display in nearly every section. Great credit is due to the local growers, who competed success fully against some fine blooms sent from Melbourne. Mr Blackburn, of Toorak, who was to have acted as judge, was unable to attend, but his place was efficiently taken by Miss Waite, of Adelaide, and Mrs Herman Lawrence. The many visitors were much pleased and surprised at the extent to which floriculture is carried in this district. The following is the list of prize-winners : FLOWERS. 24 Roses--Irs C. T.
