MOOROODUC. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 26 September 1908
MOOROD U1UC. Residents here are quite familiar with the many farms situated in the district, but people abroard can only learn by reading. On travelling back from the station a few miles we pass the Butter Factory and the State school, and keeping close to the Annesleigh estate, we drop upon farms forming the backbone of this locality, and the one that meets our view is the well established farm, " Barrow's Green," the property of Richard Grindal, Esq, with a sheltering row of Pinus Incignus that almost hides from view the grass paddocks .into _ '.o- :f?. p .?d' well fenced, making one quite secuie from the other. Then we see the hbliestead, quite sheltered and com.-n:nli'ng, nestled as it were behind towering pines that keep the cold winds off -,4 allows of a temperate climate all the year round.

Sport and Pastime. PROPOSED RACES AT MORNINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 3 October 1908
. Sport and.Pastime. - PROPOSED RACES AT MORN INGTON. The Mornington Sports clhib has held their sports meetings annually on King's Birthday, November 9th. This year it is probable that an altera tion will take place as regards date and programme. A number of the mem bers of the club favor the adoption of a programme similar to that of the Dromana Athletic Sports club and the,Moorooduo Sports society; this would mean that the cycle racing, which is on the wane everywhere in Victoria, would be dropped, and the more interesting and, exciting pastime of horseracing substituted.- The question of a suitable - course is being considered, and. when that is decided, a meeting of .the members will be called. Owing to the bad and late season for grass, and the consequent high prices for horse feed (£7 per ton is being paid for chaffat Mornihgton), it is proposed to run the sports and race meeting, towards the end of the year, probably a week or two before the Emu Plains races, on Boxing Day. ...

"Always Ailing." [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 3 October 1908

Yet in thousands of homes the same, tale is told of sick and ailing wives and daughters who suffer from constant headaches, loss of energy, loss of appetite, depression, habitual constipation, and frequent attacks of Biliousness and Indi gestion. "I have been a martyr to Bilious ness and violent headaches all my life," says Miss Evelyn Arthur, 83 Langridge Street., Collingwood. "In deed, I was always ailing. These attacks would come on at, periods of three or four weeks, and I would vomit, and suffer in a terrible manner. I waa induced by my mother to try Dr. Morse's Indian Root Fills, and took two or three on alternate nights for some time until I seemed to out grow the attacks. I still take a dose occasionally, and I have not had a return of the violent attacks since. I would not be without Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills for they are a wonderful medicine for girls." Are you always ailing ? If so, do not give up hope: ...
