DROMANA. el (Copies of the SIANDARD can be obtained a from Mr E. Iudduck.) a We have had very boisterous wea- a ther here of late. During the evening 0 of Friday last, a large four-masted p barque, while near the South Channel t lighthouse, went about ship in order to g get an offing and clear the land, but g by some means unknown except by 1 nautical men, she missed stays, and I began to drift on to the adjacent rocks. 1 Immediately both starboard and port i anchors were let go; fortunately v the tempestuous wind lulled, the an- c chors did not drag, and shortly after- $ wards she got safely under weigh. Last Friday was an eventful one for our little picturesque seaside resort. It v was the election of a councillor to fill r the vacancy in the shire council. Mr r Chapman and Mr Buchanan were the i candidates. A good deal of interest was taken in the contest, owing to the a fact that a popular townsman had been ! defeated by only two votes at the last v election, and the citizens of...

MOOROODUC. There is at the present time an epidemic of " House Warming," with more to follow. On Wednesday the 23rd, about forty friends assembled to the welcome call of Mr and Mrs J. E. Jones, of " Little Farm," to come and enjoy a pleasant evening. The weather was all that could be expected, and the absence of moonlight did not deter everyone from putting in an appear ance and sharing in the various items of enjoyment. Table games were the principal source of amusement, 'and the contest-ladies v. gents-at the game of ninepins, resulted most gallantly in a win for the former by 147 points to 50. the noise and excite ment resembling that of a football match. The piano playing and sing ing by several of those present was very enjoyable. and when supper time came it was proved that the games had given all a good appetite, all doing justice to the good things provided. The many friends of Mlrs Sawyer will be pleased to know that she has returned from Melbourne, and intends residing in ...

Our Children's Competition. "THE ORIGIN OF THE UNITED STATES." [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 3 October 1908

Our Children's Competi- tion. "THE ORIGIN OF THE UNITED STATES." The following, by Nellie Longmuir, Tyabb, is the last of the essays written in the recent competition: In the year 1492, on the 3rd day of August, Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain in order to find a new route to India, but as he sailed on he came to a land which he thought was India. He was much surprised when he found it was not, but was not sorry, because he had found an unexpected land. Afterwards this proved to be America. After he landed he found that there were people living on this new land, and he naturally called them Indians, but as they came closer he found them not to be the proper Indians but Red Indians. The name Indian was conferred upon them from their real or fancied resemblance to the people of India. We people of to-day do not know at what date or by what route the Indians came to the Western Continent. During Colum- bus's visit he explored Concepcion, Cuba, and Hayti, but in 1493 he sailed bac...

SORRENTO. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 3 October 1908

SORRENTO. -4-- Quite a gloom was cast over the district when word of the shocking accident at Heathcote, which caused the death of Mr Edward Morce, came to hand. The de- ceased, who was a hard working and unassuming young man, was only 35 years of age, and was held in high esteem by the residents of the district. The case is made more distressing by the fact that the de- ceased leaves a widow and four young children totally unprovided for. A large assemblage of residents and friends gathered at the graveside at Sorrento Cemetery on Saturday afternoon, when the remains of deceased were interred. The Rev. E. Rodda, who ionducted the service, referred to the universal respect in which deceased was held by all who knew him. A meeting of residents was held on Mon- day night to take steps to raise a fund for the benefit of the widow and four children of the late Edward Morce, who was aces- dently killed while working on a tramway line in the Heathcote district last week. A strong committe...

There was a very large attendance of mem l bers, and the business of the Lodge was concluded very early, as Dr. Griffith had arranged to read a paper on the "Indian Mutiny." Several ladies who had been invited, honored the Lodge with their presence, and were evidently very much interested in the lecture. The whole of the thrilling incidents of the mutiny were depicted in a very forcible manner, many of the harrowing scenes being described with force and feeling that appealed to the audience in the most marked manner, as the whole of the lecture was listened to with great attention. Although it was rather long, the subject was one that was difficult to curtail, and the Dr. is to be congratulated on the manner in which he arranged and described the various events, spreading over a large area of country, and lasting a considerable time...

Council Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 10 October 1908

Council Matters. At the last meeting of the Flinders and Kangerong shire council, Cr Sharp men tioned that several contractors had spoken to him, and complained that their work was nct pegged out for them, and he en quired of the engineer if it was not the proper thing for the work to be pegged out for the contractors. The Eniineer replied that it was the custom in other shires to peg out the work for the contractors. but he found on taking up his duties with their shire that it was not done. If desirable, he was per fectly willing to peg out all works in future. ~Cr Slarp'pointed out that a great blun der had been made in allowing contractor James to cart metal nearly four miles on she Cape Schanck road at a cost of Gs Gd per yard, when suitable metal could have been obtained within a mile of the job for 4s per yard. In carting the metal two miles of existing road had been destroyed, which would now have to be repaired ata great cost.
