The Somerville Show A Splendid Success—Magnificent Fruit Display [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 18 March 1921
The Somerville Show &nbsp; A Splendid Success —Magnificent Fruit Display The somerville Fruitgrowers' Horticultural and Agricultural Association held its 25th annual show on Wednesday last. The weather proved fine, although early morning conditions were threatening, and no doubt had the effect of keeping many at a distance from attending. The sum of £58 was taken at the gate, which sum was well in advance of last year; there were 1300 people present. The show was opened by Mr. J. D. Chandler, M.L.C., in the absence of Mr. Hughes, the Prime Minister, who wrote the president, regretting his inability to be present, owing to continued indisposition. Mr. Chandler, who was introduced by the president(Mr G.R. Warren) said he knew the many troubles and &nbsp; anxieties connected with the manage- ment of fruit shows. He was a fruit- grower himself, and was proud of the fact that he represented a fruit grow- ing province. At last, he said, the Government was giving fruitgrowe...

To the Editor. Sia,- I would be glad if you would allow me space to reply to the letters of Mr Gee. Shepherd and "Also a loyalist;" appearing in your last issue With reference to the first ipart of Mlr Shepherd's letter, I beg to say that he has been misinformed," .is the first I heard about the meet ,ng was after it had been held and the committee formed. Ris refer: ncei to t'lere being no apology from me" is evidently intended to be sar castic, so I can pass by that part o the letter. In reference to the forn of monument to be erected, I notic: in the "Standard" of the 4th inst. that the account of the meeting held is under the heading of--"Memoria to the fallen heroes to be erected,' and though I would not for moment think that the name of any soldier who enlisted from Somervilh would be excluded, yet I understand it really is for a-memorial to out gallant dead. Mr Shepherd ex presses reluctance in writing to the Press and wrangling over this matter as it is too sacred. I am plea...
Somerville Controversy Messrs Twyford and Overton Discuss the Question [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 March 1921
Somerville Controversy Messrs Twyford and Overton Discuss the Question To the Editor. Sir,-I had no intention of enter ing into the controversy regarding the Somerville Soldiers' lMemorial, but It has now reached a stage that I feel led, with your permission, to add my humble contribution to it. While I feel suro the promoters of the project are quite dincere in their convictions that the means being ad opted are quite sn hurmony with the object in view, I- would respectfully point out'that in nmy humble judge. ment the basis of their :ensoning is wrong. "Also a Loyallisf" speaks of the sacred regard the promoters have for the proposed memorial. More honor to them- I " On that point there seems to be a mutual agreement. But why not treat the matter ii its every aspect, in a saered wiay'? This seems to be the point of. contention. The statement that prncticnlly 'the whole of Australia is'ldopting similar me thods of raising funds for a like pnr nose can hardly he reoarded as sound ar...

BEGINNING OF KRUPPS'. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 March 1921
. BEGINNING OF KIRUPPB'. 'There is no doubt that England started Germany on her industrial S'ay, showed her the ropes, gave her the wrinkles, and generally treated her.as a good apprentice; but it is not generally knowi that Krupp him* self, the man who has enabled 'he Kniser to hold out so long, got his first capital in England. Alfred Krupp went to Birmingham in 1840 51ith an introduction to a great English firm of electroplaters from Dr. Siemens, and offered them an invention of his own for rolling the metal "blanks" from which forkn and spoons are made.

PUNS AND PUNSTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 24 March 1921
PUNB AND PUNBTURS. r.o make a pun with nothing at all to work upon-is an exceedingly diM cult task, yet Ian Maclaren was given this problem once ,b one or, two fel low authors. He was given a certain length of time, and his companions naturally did4 nt., fail to let him know 'how. fast the minutes were slipping away. At last, Sir Hall Caine, who happened to be one of the group, struck in with, "Coma along, Maclaren, your time is nearly up." But this gave the latter the oppor tunity he desired, for quick as a lash came the awer : "Don't be in -ucli: a hurry, Caine." (Hurricane.) Charles Lamb, who was rather fond of whist, once noticed that 'his par tnlr's hands were distinctly on the shady side. That called for the fol lowing remark : "My word, partner. if dirt were trumps,.what a hand you would have I"
