Rifle Shooting. FRANKSTON v. RED HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 28 November 1908
Rifle Shooting. FRANKSTON v. RED HILL. The trip to lied Hill on Saturday last had been look!' f'nrward to for a long time by the JFrankston riflemen, who had enjoyable recollections of their visit last year. Starting at an early hour, the conveyances were crammed to their fullest capacity, notwithstanding that the weather prospects appeared anything but inviting. Before many miles of the journey had been traversed, "however, the rain which was falling at the start, ceased, and tlhe day turned out all that could be desired. After a pleasant three hours drive, Red Hill was reached in good time, and the visi tors were at once made quite at home. Refreshments were provided ad. lib., and the Red Hill team and lady friends were most assiduous in attending to the Frankstonites' appetites. Red Hill is famed for its strawberries, and the Frankston riflemen equally so for their partiality towards the luscious fruit. The strawberries were found to be quite as good as those of last season, and ...

Skelton, of Melbourne road, to Mir Arthur Trenwith, son of Senator Tren- with, of Melbourne. St. John's Church of England was tastefully decorated by the young ladies of Sorrento. Rev. E. Rodda tied the nuptial knot, and Mrs Tranmar played the wedding march whilst the group was leaving the church. The wedding breakfast was held at the bride's parents' house, and quite a large number were entertained. The happy couple left amid showers of confetti and rice to spend their honey moon at Ballarat Mr Geo. Baars, late of Queenseliff, has taken over the Back Beach Palace, and it is being thoroughly renovated. By the accounts we hear of that gen- tleman, he will be quite an acquisition to the progress of Sorrento.

PENINSULA ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 5 December 1908
PENINSULA ASSOCIATION. The above competition has now reached an interesting stage. On Sa turday the two leading teams (Tyabb and Frankston) met, 'yitory resting ultimately with the latter. Thus Frankston top the premiership list, with Tyabb two points' behind, and Somerville lying third with foer points in the rear of the leading team. The Tyabb-Frankston match, played on the ground of the former, created a deal of interest, and consequently there was a fair attendance of specta tors. The home team won the toss, and sent Frankston to the wickets. The visitors put up rather a poor stand as compared to previous batting per formances, and were all disposed of for 150. The reliable" Bennie," as usual, was top scorer with a nicely-made 47, Jack Box and Burton (32 and 20) also doing very welL Tyabb opened their innings cautiously, but were unable to reach their opponents' .?core, the last wicket fanllin it" thlreiti?irI rald?U 48 runs behind.

Our Letter Box. We do not necessarily identify our., les with the opiniouns expressed by correspondents.) TO TIIE- EDITOR STANDAID. Sir.-- see by the Melbourne dailies that our friend, Cr Geo. Griffeths, of Two Bays Nurseries, Somerville, moved aresolution at the Nurserymen's Conference that " all nurseries should be licensed and that a substantial fee be charged." Mr Griffeths started in a small way here, buying his trees from the local growers, working up a i business which at present is of con siderable magnitude. All praise to him. But evidently he has forgotten his humble efforts to make a livelihood, and is turning on those who are still struggling to make a living at the nursery trade, and says that they must shut up business and leave it to a few, and; that the State parliament must speedily legislate to that effect. In his remarks, if quoted correctly, he infers that the small growers are rogues, for he says that with licenses (which the small growers could never pay if a "...

Clark, and the sec retary (Mr Fulton.) ` CORRESPONDENCE. The secretary reported having written to the Department of Public Works asking that the council should participate in the Government grant for next year.
