Cheering Appreciation. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 15 August 1908
Cheering Appreciation. &nbsp; During the past fortnight the follow- ing gratifying letters have reached us, and though we do not know our correspondents personally we thank them most heartily for their kindly words and encouraging opinions. They will stimulate us to greater endeavours, and we hope that as time advances there may be no falling off in the reasons which have inspired such testimonies to the growing popularity and worth of The Standard, as the local paper of the Peninsula. The publication of two editions for Frank- ston-and Mornington districts, we are glad to know appears to have given universal satisfaction : Wandin, 30-7-'08. To the Proprietor FRANKSTON AND SOMERVILLE STANDARD. Dear Sir, Just a few lines to com- pliment you on the improved newsy condition of your paper, and also to wish the old organ under the new title every success. I've always thought the old title somewhat inappropriate, though possibly I had something to do with giving it that name, bein...

Correspondence. (Wte o not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed IT correspondents.) SORBRENTO IDLE GOSSIP. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. Sir,-In common. with other resi dents I was pleased to' see a-paragraph from your correspondent denying hav iiig sent up the report of:the?Iadies' Literary and Debating.Club, for which he was blamed by many.- It is a pity those who make up such foolish con coctions do not turn their attention to writing soinething better, and for the advancement of the place, instead of trying to belittle those who do take an interest and keep the place going. Your paper is gaining a good footing here, and it would be a pity for such' like reports to be inserted, which will do you a great injustice.-I am, sir, BUSINESS. Sorrento, 18-8-'08,

The Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 22 August 1908
The Elections. From the "South Bourke and Morn ington Journal" of February 11th, 1903, we take the following concern ing Mr H. C. Sharp's resignation as a councillor of the Cranbourne Shire Council: The President said that it was with regret that he read Cr Sharp's resigna tion, owing to that gentleman's depar ture from the district. They were un doubtedly losing a good man and a straightforward councillor. The resignation having been duly accepted, Crs McCulloch, Greaves, McPherson, and Gardiner each in turn spoke in flattering terms regarding the retiring councillor. The different speakers had something complimentary to say regarding their old associate in municipal affairs, whose straightfor ward and independent actions, together with the energy which he had displayed in the best interests of the ratepayers during his term of office as one of the Cranbourne riding representatives, were referred to in appropriate terms. It was very clear that councillors rea lised that they were l...
The late Mr Jostlear. AN APPRECIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 22 August 1908
The late Mr Jostlear. -4-- AN APPRECIATION. In the presence of a small group of sorrowing relations and friends, the remains of our late representative at Mornington, Mr M. E. Jostlear, were on Saturday morning last laid in their last earthly resting place in the Mel bourne general cemetery. During our few months association with the de ceased gentleman (for he was indeed a "gentleman" in every sense of the word), we had ample reason to esteem him for his many good and sterling qualities. As a servant he was faith ful, painstaking, and of the highest integrity; he had that wide range of knowledge and graceful style which made him so successful as a journalist, while he loved his profession with that enthusiastic spirit which breathed in Lord Beaconsfield's declaration when he avowed " My noblest escutcheon is, that I am a gentleman of the press." As all who had the pleasure of coming in contact with him know, the late M?r Jostlear was in hisbearing urbane, kindly, and always desirou...

It is about five months since the work of enlarging and. altering the building was com menced, and, although finished for a long: while, an unnecessary period has been spent in waiting for the per mission of the Board of Health to re open. "However, some are very much inclined to think that the treat they enjoyed last week was w"orth the wait ing. Long before the hour of com. mencing. the concert, the building was packed to the doors, and it was a matter of considerable difficulty to find even standing room. - In declar ing the building re-opened, Mr Down ward mentioned that it gave him the greatest pleasure to'do so, as ten years ago he performed the same office in the same building, and ever since then had always been delighted to be amongst the people of Tyabb, or to render them any service in his power, as they seem...
