FRANKSTON SANITARY SERVICE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908

FRANKSTON SANITARY - SERVIGE.- TO1 TE EDITOR OF THE STA?DARD. Sir,--In your issue of the 10th uIt. appears a report of a meeting of the Frankston and Hastings shire council, where a resolution was passed "That Wells and Lawrey be requested to return the pans they removed, to the owners." We would like to ask the mover and seconder if they think we stole the pans,_ as that is what is being reported round'Frankston. We were authorised by the Engineer (Mr Horsfall) to remove the old pans. out of the township, which we did as directed; and were paid for doing so by the council. Had the mover and seconder looked over the pay-sheet before the meeting, they would have seen the account passed by the En gineer, and then they could have instructed the Engineer to attend to the matter. .In futuro we will ask, who we are to 'obey,' the `engineer. or the councillors, as "no man can serve two masters.":' Thai king you for all?obig us your v'alhiable space.-We are, yours, etc., S WELLS & L...

SOMERVILLE MUSICAL SOCIETY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908

SOMERVILLE MUSICAL SOCIETY. TO TIIE EDiTOr. STANDARD. Sir,-Your Somerville correspond ent states a couple of issues back that the Somerville Musical Society intends to go into recess on account of the piano being set too high (copcert pitch). The instrument is certainly up to Philharmonic pitch, and one or two of the singers complain that they cannot reach the high notes, viz., G. sharp, which occurs but twice in the cantata, and it is true the Society contemplates going into recess for the summer months, but not for the reason stated by your erroneously informed corres pondent.

Worms in Children. A VERY PREVALENT COMPLAINT. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908

- .Worins-tn IIChIdran. A VERY PREVALENT COM PLAINT. In very young children much of the irritation and-fretfulness is often due to the presence of worms:. Restless: ness, fitfulness, sudden starts and wetting the bed aurini ileep,?hardness and fulness of the belly, irregular movements of the. bowe!s, excessive secretions of: s'alivn'fiom the 'mouth, are invariably indications of.. the irritation caused by worms. In older children the same symptoms are present, but more distinctly de fined. Grinding of the teeth, violent movements of the legs and arms, and undue flow of saliva, which causes frequent efforts to swallow. The bowels are irregular. The breath is usually foul, and the child is languid andpeevish. The tongue preternatu rally red* or alternately red, and covered with a white slimy mucus. A short, dry cough; emaciation, slow fever, irregular pulse, and sometimes convulsions. Loss of appetite fre quently alternates with a craving for food. Indeed, the latter symptom is most p...

LANGWARRIN. ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908

LANGWARRIN. ANNIVERSARY. The anniversary in connection with the Methodist Sunday school was celebrated on Sunday and Monday of last week. The church was nicely decorated for the occasion by teachers and parents, and the effect was a credit to those who took part in the work of art. Mr Beckett, of Bentley, conducted divine service afternoon and evening on Sunday, and was appreciated by his hearers. The concert which followed on Monday night brought a good attendance., The programmne; in which the children took a prominent part, was full of interesting items, and demonstrated unmistakably that considerable trouble had been taken to teach them to per form so creditably. Mr awl dMr's A" Corlett., Mr and Mrs C. W. Murray, Mrs A. Clark, and M lls P. J. Murray took a leading part in the proceedings. The Rev. Mr Wallace, who occupied the chair in his usual pleasant man ict, gave the audicnce to understand that a still tongue itakesa wise head, and as the progratlule Was rather a lengthly on...

THE BATTLE OF FRANKSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908

TAE BATTLE OF FRANKSTON. BY J. H. Haven't you heard of the battle of Fr, nk ston ? Say, Etranger, when did you arrive ? Why, it's only last week that it happened, Not a man there was left alive. No, it wasn't a battle of warships, Like those we've recently seen, But a contest of friendly campers - At least, that's what it ought to have been. For the "Bull and Bush " sent forth their challenge; 'Twns accepted with glee, so they say; The "Bohemians" brought up ammuni tion. And girded their loins for the fray. They met on the veldt near Frankston, The first shot was fired about three, And then things got pretty willing, And the fight was a"boshter" to see. While Peppard at long range was sniping, Ned Drohan a flank movement made, But just as success seemed certain, He was caught in a "flying-gang" raid. Th-n "Toey" rose up in his anger, And charged down the field without fear; Gant and Hogau before him were scout And Burke protecting his rear. [lng, The '" Bull and Bush" formed in a sq...

A HINT. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908

A mIxr.-The Wairarapa Times re marks that a witness in a court case at Palmerston, N.Z., said "It was a principle of journalism that a meeting which was not advertised was not reported by the Press." This prin ciple does not appear to be understood by some persons. for instance, it is quite a common experience for people to drop into a newspaper office and ask for locals for entertainments and meetings, concerning which not a word of advertising has appeared. To ask for locals on these conditions is about on a par with entering a baker's shop and asking for a loaf without paying for it. A newspaper proprietor gives locals in return for advertising support, and people should not expect locals or reports on any other condition."

District News MOOROODUC. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 24 October 1908

DistrictNews MOOROODUC. There has been some very unseason able weather of late-sultry north winds, followed by very heavy rain, a great amount falling in a very short time. The heat and moisture. com bined is causing the grass and crops to grow, thus ensuring a plentiful supply of fodder for the stock, :which- are doing remarkably well. On the new estate.of Mr G. H. Grindal, of" Barres Farm," a field of oats recently sown promises a good yield of clean even hay. On a field of eleven acres, nicely worked, rape is making good headway. This property, that so recently be longed to the familiar Annesleigh Estate, has undergone a complete change. It has been subdivided into paddocks, which at the present are bearing luxuriant grass, and this is protected from rabbits by small guage wire netting two feet wide, with two plough sods turned against the lower edge, thus completely checking the rodent. The benefit of this can be seen by the condition of the stock now pasturing on the fields . t...
