A Narrow Escape. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 22 July 1911
A Narrow Escape. A young man in the employ of Mr Murphy, of "The Briars," Morning ton, had a very marrow escape from serious injury on Monday last. When putting a case of corrugated iron (which weighed half a ton) into his dray from the "Helen Moore," the main stay of the deric broke, the heavy pole grazing the man's head and causing a nasty scalp wound. Had he been an inch nearer no doubt it would have ended with fatal results. The sufferer was conveyed to Mr Tait's pharmacy, where his injury was atten ded to by Dr Somers.

Shire Secretary's Salary. PROPOSED INCREASE AT 3MORNLXGTON. At the Mornington council meet ing on Thurday, Cr Lobb said all councillors were surely of the opinion that the shire secretary was deserving of an increase of salary. He had a lot of work to do, and he (the speaker) moved that he be granted a rise of £20 per year. Cr Stephens seconded. Hestated that since the secretary had been engaged he had had a lot of extra work, such as entailed by the new bathing box regulations, municipal sale yards, etc., and he thought he (the secretary) was entitled to £20 a year extra. Cr Male said that the last time the matter was brought up, he voted against it, but now, after the considerable amount of work the secretary had to do, he was of a different opinion, and would vote for the motion.

TYABB. As will be seen per advertisement, the annual public meeting of the local hall will be held on Wednesday even ing next, 26th inst.

Two of these offer them selves for re election, hut the third has re-igned definitely, so that a new one is required.

"The Busy Bee." [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 22 July 1911
"The Busy Bee." One of our local apiarists had one of his hives upset by a meddle-ome per. son one day last week whilst he was away from home. His daughter and another young lady decided to rectify mattersand with a stick commenced to isrrape the bees back into their box. The bees resented this method of compulsion, and shlowed their resent ment by stinging the young ladies. This they stood with fortitude, and it was not till the bees atracked numor ous parts of their bodies that theyj decided to beat a hasty retreat. The lady of the house had been studying the harem skirt fashions and decided that if they were not becoming ar tistic they were at least useful, especi. allyin a case of this kind. So donning her husband's trousers and overcoat with belt over all, she mentally solved the problem of rehousing bees. The cempete harem scarem costume in. cluded ltha, veil and gloves. The veriest fashion novice in Carlyle's time could have recognised the harem costume; if not the person ins...
