These are again cut "hard" back for similar strong growth in the subsequent spring; and they are similarly treated in -the fol 'owing winter.

TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 8 July 1911
TYABB. After attending the local State school No. 3129: as scholar and assis tant taceher for the past ten years, Mr R. A. Lester was last week transferred to North St. James', where he has been placed in charge of th, school. Although his school is not a large one, the change is a promotion, and the residents here are general'y pleased that a local acho'ar should receive such a recognition of proficiency. Apart from the fact that going out into the world is part of a young man's education, it is pleasing to note thst Mr Lester ca ries with him the good will of his late fellow teachers and scho'sr, as i vidleced in the presents lie received from them on leaving, and the kindly words of advice and wishes of good luck spoken by iMr Taylor on behalf of the children and parents. Already, Mr Lester has written home to say thit he is pleased with the change, and that the town of Tungs nmah, where he is living, is all that can be desired by a young nman of sporting proclivities.
Dromana Lady's Predicament. "A PLUNGE IN THE DARK." [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 8 July 1911
Dromana Lady's Predica ment. "A PLUNGE IN THE DARK." A Dromana correspondent writes : "The roads and footpaths in this place are, to use Cr Terry's expression, in "a most ghastly state." A young .lady walking along the main thoroughfare on her way home very .recntly,- on a dark night, had the misfortune to walk into a hole 2fret 6 inches deep, by about 3 x 4 feet, right in the middle of the footpath, and which was fall of water. In addition to the shock from sudden immersion, the young lady had her c'othes completely ruined, and a demand for compensa tion will, probably, be made at next meeting. Fortunately, the lady was accompanied by her elder sister,- r:ho assisted her out of her serious predica ment, and helped her to her heme, which was not far off. The young ladies were unaware of the existence of the hole as they have been away from home forsome time."
Complicated Debt Case. WEBB v. THOMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 8 July 1911
Complicated Debt Case. WEBB v. THOMAS. A complicated debt case was before .Capt. Sherlock, J.P. (the only justice), at the' Frankston court on Monday.. . J. W. Webb, formerly a butcher at Carrum, sued Jas. Thomas, of Carrum, for £5 2s 3?d, amount of goods sold and delivered. Thomas appeared to defend his case, and Mr Utber prosecuted for complainant. Defendant admitted owing plart of account, but from January, 1909, he denied liability. It appeared from the defence put up by Thomas, that he had been living at three different places whilst at Carruih at Wells' road, in a tent near Car rum station, and at another house some distance away. He generally paid cash, and did not know that he owed Webb anything after Jan uary. The goods were not delivered to him, and as there were seven different families by. the name of Thomas, it was probable that some one, for whom he was not respon sible, had received the meat. When he got the bill, defendant took it to Webb's son,,jwho said it was a, m...

The letter is as follows : East Melbourne larriers, Amateur Sports Club, 101 Swanston street, Melbourne. Mr Pettit, Dear Sir,--Re Marathon race. Just a note to advise you that at a committee meeting held recently, it was decided that our club should not hold a Mara;thln race this year. In coming to this decision, therere were two things that guided us. The first was that it was considered that it was suaficiently fre quent to ask men to compete in a race of this description every second year, and, sesondly, the financial strain was too great for us to shoulder every year. It was, therefore, decided that we should bold this race every second year, and in this the A...
