A Remarkable Accident. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908
A Remarkable Accident. Oliver's Frill. Frankston, has been re sponsible for several accidents. owing to its steepness and the dangerous fall to the beach on one side, and another remark able escape has to be recorded. A two horse van belonging to 'Ir J. Findley, of South Yarra, loaded with furniture and fittings for u chemist's shop at Sorrento, was " stuck up" on the hill early on Thursday morning, the driver having camped over-night at the foot of the hill so that the horses would be fresh for the pull first thing in the morning. Just at the most difficult pinch" the wheels went over the "chocks," and striking the fence, knocked it over, the van then rolling backwards down the hill-side, a distance of about .53 feet. Marvellous to relate, the vehicle was not even capsized, and sustained little damace beyond the break ing of the pole and a few wrenched boards. The horses, excepting a few scratches, and a shock consequent on.their sudden :backward slide, were uninjured. One animal f...

HASTINGS. (Copies of the S?T?sDaRD can be obtained from Mr S. Orsino.)

Miss Jenkins and Miss Kernot, of Mel bourne, gave very pleasing vocal items, also Mlrs Harvey; Mr S. Mentiplay and Mr W. Sheehy, in illustrated songs, were a decided success. The pictures were of a varied and enjoy able description, and much clearer than previous moving ones shown here. The entertainment was most successful, both finandcally and otherwise. Mr F. W. Sudholtz has sold all his land known as " Warrinda," at a sa tisfactory price, and is unfortunately leaving the district, which will be a great loss, he having always taken a great interest in any movement for its advancement.

Correspondence. (We do not necessarily Identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents.) THE LOCAL PAPER. TO THE EDITOR STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908
Correspondence. (W V. o not i ces~ariy ident;fy ourelvem with the opiuious preaswe by corresludennts.) THE LOCAL PAPER. TO THE EDITOR STANDARD. Sir,-It was with much pleasure I read in your journal a very suggestive and practical remark made by one of councillors that the printing and ad vertising should be given to our local paper-Tile STANDARD. Ttrs prepis terous and absurd to send all the way to Dandenong, when we have a paper like our STANDARu , whose circulation, is being spread far and wide, and, I venture to say, that I don't think half the ratepayers, if any, knew of this transaction. Again, I have visited a great number of Mechanics' Institu tions in this vast State, and in no in stance have I failed to sec the local newspaper on the table of the hbrary ; but let a stranCer enter our local Me chanics' library and ask our esteemed hhrarian for TrIe STANDARD, when he will politely inform you that it is not to be obtained.-Yours, etc., CORRIGENDA. Dromnrna, 17-10-'08.
TYABB. (Copies of the STANDARD can be obtained from Mr D. M. Bett.) [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908
TYABB. (Copies of the STANDasD can be obtained from Mr D. MI. Bett.) The last meeting of the Tyabb and Hastings Fruitgrowers' Association was fairly well attended, although a much larger attendance was expected, in view of the interesting and instruc tive paper by Dr. Griffeth, entitled, '. Refrigeration, its influence on Trade, Commerce, and Enterprise." This paper, previous to some alterations and additions, was submitted some time ago at a meeting of the Somer ville Association, and was reported therefrom, so the only comments that I can make is that those who missed the genial doctor's discourse missed a treat. The weather during the past few days has been inductive of early cultivation and planting, as well as various stages of work in the nurseries. The grass, although not long, is fairly thick, and has a large amount of nutriment in it. Spraying is in full swing for apples and pears, which, as a general rule are masses of bloom, whilst stone fruits seem to be having an off se...
