GENERAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 13 May 1921
-GENERAL NOTES. Modiste. (Hastings) comes to light with a criticlim:--"We had pictures at Hastings recently, with "The Thunderbolt" as the principal feat ure. Katherine McDonald and Tho mas M'eighan. played the leading roles.' It was a melodramatic story of a feud existing between two proud families. The acting was good, but the theme was a colossal joke. More over, Thomas Meighan detracted from the realism of his effort by wearing the same suit throughout the play in spite of several years lapse in time ! Why is not more attention paid to these necessary details I "

Mrs Burton's Charges To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 13 May 1921
Mrs Burton's Charges To the Editor. Sir,—Re closing of business places on Anzac Day. As my name has un- fortunately been given some publi- city in your report of the discussion on above subject at the meeting of Franketon Branch R.S.S.I.L.A., I crave space in your valuable columns to state what Mr Lyon terms, my case. As a soldier's widow I was naturally an interested reader of names of those who stated their intention of closing all day on the 25th ult. in honor of our noble dead. Among other things I noted that the only cafe proprietors participating were Messrs Lyons and Vicars. Shortly after 5 p.m. on the great anniversary, passing the Fernery I noticed the place apparently closed, and (men tally) doffed my hat to people who, I believed, had paid respect without advertising. On reaching the Pier Tea House, with its half masted flag I was astonished to see business in full swing. In Bay Street I met Mr Lyons, and, noting his business place closed, I mentioned to him what seemed a...
Lights on Vehicles To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 20 May 1921
Lights on Vehicles To the Editor. Sir-There is a Couniel by-law that all vehicles must carry a Illght when travelling 'at' night.' It is useless framing a by-law unless the authori ties see that it isecarried out. This, I take it, is 'a matter for the police. Then why do they not do their duty ? The Point Nepean road; between Frankston and Somerville, is a veri table.death trap anytime after clark. There was a motor cyclist killed at Hastings recently through travelling without a light. In motoring fRom Franhston to Somerville last night I met and passed no less than twelve carts and. waggo-s, andunot ono of them had a vestige of 'a light.. This sort of thing is of nightly occurence, and is a disgrace to the auth:rities. Some night there will be a fearful accident on this road, -and then I isuppose something will be done ;but not until then. Glaring headlights is another source of great danger, and I have been struck stone blind many a time on the above mentioned road. The police ha...
