Somerville Park Pavilion. The Somerville Park is to be used as a football ground this sea son, end several little things need to be done to make the ground at tractive, and one of these is a pavilion. In order to help in this matter the local football club gave a concert in the Mechanics' Hall on Friday night, and there was a very large attendance. Mr J. E. Taylor, the chairman, had an unenviable position to fulfil, as owing to sundry causes only two of the performers turned up, and local talent was called into requisi tion. The artists available locally are above the average, and, conse quently, a good programme re sulted. At the conclusion of the vocal programme, several phonographic selections by Mr Sincock's machine were rendered. Cr Griffiths has a happy knack of saying the right things when he moves a vote of thanks.. He said the people of Australia had saved a situation at the Referenda, and he hoped the local footballers would follow their action during the com ing season. C...

A Midnight Joke. HUMORISTS AT WORK. In the grey, still dawn of Monday morning the main street at Frankston presented a very sulemn and doleful appearance, end early risers were strikes with the sighr.
