TO TUE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD Sir,-In the coluinns of your paper of Saturday last, I noticed a paragraph stating that the motor coach .hich I am purchasing was to commence run ning between Bittern and Fiinders on this date. This I may say is incor rect, as I have not yet obtained de livery of the coach from the makers. I hope to be able to start this service very shortly-probably on or about Saturday next, but I cannot yet bind myself to a definite date. I must thank you for your kindly notice of my venturce in the STA.D.aD, and I fully recognise that you had every reason to suppose your information, to be correct, as it had become generally understood (certainly not by my authority) that the motor was to com mence running to day. Thanking you in anticipation for allowing space for this correction.-I am, &e., JOHN BOYD.

RYE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 4 December 1909
RYE As a quantity cf land has been sold in this locali,y lately, it is gratifying to know that two or three new build ings will be erected in due course, and it is expec:ed Lthat an influx of visitors will take place during the summer season, especially as the '"s.s. Meen derry" calls here every Friday. The demand for firewood is good, for a steamer called here lately and ordered a quantity of the ti tree for her comsumption, and it is very prob able t.hat others will call during the coal strike.

Bourke, who was seriously injured by a chaffcutter, is, we believe, dischargedI from the Hospital after having his:leg cut off above the knee, and is there fore unable to get his living as a general labourer.

In Memoriam. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 4 December 1909
In Memoriam. They tore the flowers from.off thy breast, They would not, darling, let thee rest ; They grndged thy little resting place,. And basely tried the spot to efface. They grasped thy father's toil of rears, Nor thought upon his bitter tears ; As in the forest with his God, He laid his child beneath the sod, There thou seemed with us day by day, For in our childish sports and play, Our steps were ever tending there, That thou our griefs and joys might share. We took from out our garden plot The little blue Forget-me-nor, And choicest flowers would ever save To plant on little sister's grave. We saw thy angel face alway, As though it were but yesterday, When last?we bid oursadsgood-h-o, And ivonderedqwhat:it ias todie. The heathen. guards his saorel dead,== And woe to those who rashly tread; But men called Christians here we have Who barbarously destroy a grave. Some men have tender hearts and souls, And some are little more than ghouls :;> Their hearts are sordid, hard. an...
