Our Children's Competition. "THE ORIGIN OF THE UNITED STATES." 2ND PRIZE ESSAY. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 September 1908
Our Children's Competi= tion. .-4--- " THE ORIGIN OF THE UNITED STATES." 2ND PRIZE ESSAY. To-day British possessions in America stretch from Quebec to Van couver, and from Hudson Bay Terri tory to the famous lakes of America. " But why," you ask, " does it not extend all over America ?" , The an swer to that question is a ilark one, but before we answer it we must take notice of the colonization of the North American states. When Jat,,s I. reigned in England, he desired to set up an Episcopacy in that country. Some of his subjects opposed this, but the majority of the English people consented. James, however, tried to compel the " rebellious " people to do as he wished, but he did not succeed. Some of these men, Puritans, deter mined to seek another country where their religion would not be interfered with, so they sailed for America in a ship called the lMayflower. During the first few years there were very few colonists, but_ in. Elizabeth's -reign other explorers had gone out and...
The Peninsula Astir. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 September 1908
The Peninsula Astir. It will most likely be years before the Peninsula is the scene of so much activity and excitement as was caused by the rush last week end to see the incoming of the A~ierica":fleet. From Friday afternoon till late on Saturday morning the main and branch roads literally swarmed with all kinds of lo comotion. Motor cars rattled through the townships in large numbers, it be ing estimated that fully 300 cars passed through Frankston. The visit ing fleet could be viewed to advantage from practically any point of vantage, but the most favorable places were swarmed. Mount Martha was a fa vorite spot, and this beautiful position was thronged with visitors, who made a regular picnic of the outing. A grand view of the ships was obtained, and the procession was a magnificent sight. Further towards the heads the visitors flocked more thickly, and from Dromana, Rosebud, Sorrento, and Portsea thousands watched the arrival of the fleet. In fact, at Dromana at every. point alon...

Help Your Newspaper ! [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 September 1908
Help Your Newspaper I The greatest aid you can give your newspaper is your Jon PaINTINa. If you do not feel able ro run an advertisement, surely you can afford to give the news paper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes and all business printing t: execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps him to pay his printers for setting up the thousand and one free notices he gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the printer that can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping to build up your district. The time may come when,a country newspaper can live simply on the revenue derived from ad vertising and subscriptions, but no ordi nary newspaper in an ordinary district can exist without the auxiliary support derived from job printing. Therefore. if you want a good newspaper-one thdt can still further help you and your town-LIvE IT TOUi JOB PunnITINO.

Farewell gathering at Mornington. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 September 1908
Farewell gathering at: . Mornington. A very pleasant evening was spent last Tuesday week in .the Mechanics': Institute, Mornington, ihaugirated by the members and adherents of St. Peter's church, to bid farewell to Mr' F. Dews, who is leaving this district to start in business in Camper down. The Rev. Mr Sandiford presided, and spoke in glowing terms of the good work that Mr Dews had done for the church and anything connected with it, and it was with deep regret that they were assembled together to bid farewell to one whose place it would be very hard to fill; but he hoped Mr Dews would meet with the success that he deserved, and that some day he would be Lord Mayor of Melbourne (Laughter). Mr J. D. Grover endorsed Rev. Mr Sandiford's remarks, and said that it would be very hard to fill his place, as he was first in everything connected with the church or Sunday school. If anything was wanted, it was " Go to Mr Dews," who was always ready to assist them. Mr Sandiford then presented ...
Another Appreciation. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 September 1908
iAnother Appreciation. Our readers must not assume that we are growing egotistical in publish ing another appreciative letter, but 1 this form of corresponidence is so much out of the general run, that we can only regard it as unique from a jour nalistic view. Writing from Sorrento under date of Augist 25th, a resident gives `us the following words of cheer : 'I am agitating here for support to be given to our local paper by all the clubs and associations. I think I will be successful now that you have improved the paper o much. I think you deserve something in return. I have had some experience of country papers, having been in the printing business myself. I certainly must oon gratulate you on having one of the beet country papers in the state." This is both solid and satisfactory, and while we are exceedingly glad to know that our efforts are succeeding, we would particularly emphasise the PRAcICAL' part of our correspondent's kindly reference. In other words, if residents will s...

DROMANA. (Copies of the STANDAnv can be obtained from Mr. N.Rudduck.), Dromana was en fete on Saturday. iHundreds of people 'thronged our streets to view the American Fleet passing up the South Channel to Mel bourne. Probably Dromana was never visited by so large a number. Motors, bicycles, and carriages gaily decked with American and English Sflags began to arrive at an early hour, and the little picturesque town had a gay and animated appearance, and the Svisitors were a jolly lot. All the stores were well patronised, and the Sstaff of life (bread) sold well, and not a loaf could be bought after 1 p.m. Host Murphy catered in his well I known satisfactory manner, and Sdid not leave a stone unturned in r order to supply his guests with all Stheir needs. Amongst the distin a guished visitors were His Honor Mr 3 Justice Higgins.

Tennis. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 September 1908
Tennis. On Thursday last a visiting team of four gentlemen from Melbourne met four of the Mornington players in a friendly match on the local courts. The visitors came with a record, and consequently the Morningtonites were not greatly .surprised at the result of the day's play. 'I'he visiting players scored a victory, but most of the games were very keenly contested, especially in the last game of the day, when Messrs Bayston and Frankenberg were almost beaten by Messrs Grover and Tait. This was a very close contest, as the scores indicate-5-C6, 6-4, 6-5. Although the morning was rather dull, later in the day the sun emerged from behind the clouds, and favored the game with its radiant pre sence, thus adding to the mutual plea sure of all concerned. During the afternoon several of the Mornington ladies provided afternoon tea to the entire satisfaction of the visi tors, and none the less to the home team and their enthusiastic supporters. Fleet celebrations interfered with the local...

MOOROODUC. The football match that took place E at Mornington between Frankston and Somerville last Saturday week attracted a large crowd from here to witness one of the finest games that has been played in the district. The weather was not of the best, but it does not re quire perfect weather when the ele ments are counteracted by the contest ing teams providing a delicious sit down spread for afternoon tea, and the ladies' generosity was much appre ciated by their friends. A slight acci dent happened to our favourite, Mr James McLellan, who received a nasty kick on the knee, that caused much pain. Our esteemed representative, Cr. H. p.

The Theatre. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 September 1908
The Theatre. Tihe holiday audiences who are assembling to see Margaret Anglin in " Tie Thief " are completely enthralled with the talented young star's intensely convincing and yet perfectly natural methods, and during the whole of the second act, in which the emotional powers of the artist have full play, the house sat in hushed and intensely intn-rested silence, their appreciation being further demonstrated by rounds of applause, after the tension had sub sided. A typical iolihtay audience welcomed "The Red Mill " on Saturday last, and the vivacious musical comedy proved tihe very thing to satisfy the packed house which was in quest of a night's funll anil aniuse?ent.
