Help Your Newspaper ! [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 31 October 1908
Help Your Newspaper ! The greatest aid you can give your newspaper is your Jon PaINTINO. If you do not feel able ro run an advertisement, surely you can afford to give the news paper, your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes and all business printing to etecute. The newspaper man needs it, and it helps him to pay his printers for setting up the thousand and one free notices he gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the printer that can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping to build up your district. The time may come when a country newspaper can live simply on the revenue derived from ad vertising and subscriptions, but no ordi. nary newspaper in an ordinary district can exist without the auxiliary support derived from job printing. Therefore. if yeu want a good newspaper-one that can still further help you and your town--oIv IT TOUR JOB PRINTING.

DROMANA. (Copies of the STANDAaD can be obtained from Mr E. Rudduck.) "It never rains but it pours." We have had a jovial week. A concert in aid of the Presbyterian Church took place last week. Our popular and well-esteemed councillor, A. V. Shaw, Esq.. was in the chair. Songs, recita tions, etc., were rendered by a goodly number. By the R.M.S .Ortana we notice in the list of saloon passengers the names of Mrs and the Misses Sheehan, who have been on a visit to Europe. We welcome them back to their palatial summer residence, "The Pines." We had almost a chapter of acci dents this week. Whilst Mr W. Wyatt, manager of Mr E.

BIOTOUS BEHAVIOUB OF SOR. RENTO SCHOOL CHILDREN.,. TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD. Sir,-On Monday last, as the child ren were coming home frnm school, eight of the boys, whose ages range from 6 to 10, accosted a young lady as she was going home from the post office, and took from her a basket con taining letters, etc., and her hat.

Our Letter Box. SORRENTO PROGRESS ASSO CIATION. TO THE EDITOR STANDARD. Sir,-In your issue of October 10th a correspondent comments on the le thargy of the Sorrento Progress Asso ciation. I presume he means by not holding the meetings as regularly as we used to do. The reason of them lapsing has been through the sparse at tendances of members, and then only those turning up who have an axe to grind, which is very poor consolation to those in office and compelled to at tend. I would like to point out to your correspondent and readers that the Progress Association has done good work, and been the means of a good deal of public money being spent here on necessary works, and for informa tion the following are some of the works done through the persistent ef forts of the association, viz.-additions to the Sorrento school, general repairs to pier last year, trunk telephone line, advertising in the city and country newspapers, water carts on Main and Back Beach roads, wandering cattle (Act...

District News Reports of district function., items of loca interest, and information of all kinds will be thankfully received by the Editor. MOOROODUC. Perfect weather is the chief topic sunny, mild, and warm, and the country is looking like a picture. It can hardly be wondered with such weather that the crops are growing apace, and in this locality anyone may find and see some lovely fields of oats, wheat, rape, etc., in various stages of growth. The stock are also showing the effects of the increase of fodder after the long cold winter, and, being fed on chaff and ensilage through out that bad time, they are now rolling fat. I am sorry to again mention that the severe illness of Mr W. Male has compelled him to go to the hospital, and all who know him personally tender him and his wife their sincere pia- rtfelt sympathy. Stl F-llong s-ta? ir--Sonth° Africa, Mr and Mrs Cameron (nee Miss Emily Grindal) have returned to enjoy a quiet holiday, and, as it were, a honey moon. With the co...

PRICE OF BREAD. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD.) Sir,-May I enquite through your columns when the price of bread locally is likely to be lowered 7 Melbourne bakers have reduced it, and flour has decreased in price several times, but still the price of bread is unaltered.
