EDITING A PAPER. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 19 October 1889
Enrrs?o A PAPE..-?Editing a paper is a nice business. .If we publish jokes, people say we arerattle-headed. If we omit jokes, people say we are an old fossil. If we publish original matter, they blame us for not giving selections. If we publish selec tious, folks say we are lazy for not writing sonething they have not read in some other paper. If we give a man a complimentary notice, we are censured for being .partial.,: If we do not give complimentary notices, folks say we are a hog. , If we do not cater for the wishes of the ladies, the paper is not fit to tie up a parcel. If we:remain in ouri office and do our business, folks say? we are too proud to mingle with our fellows. Ift we go out, they say we neverattendto our business. If we do not pay our bills pr.omptly, folks say we are notto be trusted. If we wear poor clothes, folks say business is bad. If we wear good clothes, they say we never paid for them. Now, what are wo to do?

Sporting Notes. IRACING MEMS. BY "MALuA." This afternoon one of the " hig" racing events of? the year will be decided at Caulfield. ,There is a probability of over a score of horses facing the starter, and some of the very best horseflesh in'the Colonies will be amziongst the number. Reports tell that most of the candidates have been doing excellent work, and tips are as 'common as Imullet at Hastings. During the past week I have been the. recipient of no less than 10 " dead birds," imnd on going through the `ruling odds I find that were I to invest a pound on each one, I 'should, were 'the ,longest odds chance .to pop up, laind" aout ::fifteen" pounds, but were the short odds" shot" to win I should be out of pocket altogether. I am truly' thankful to my sporting friends, but when I do any business in the betting line I follow my own impressions. Ever since the' publication of the Caulfield Cup weights I have had a great fancy for Dunkeld, The Charmer, 'nd Boz.s And of the three Ipr...

Flinders. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The usual monthly meeting of the committee of the Flinders Mechanics' Institute' took place on Saturday evening last, there being present Messrs Barker, Bedoll, Brown, Clayton, Day, Kennedy, Nowlan and Pulling. A good deal of business, was gone through, amongst which it was proposed to reduce the over draft at bank by £25 ; a sum of .£10 to be expended in providing some new seats, and £1 5s to be spent in the purchase of a small tank. for the convenience of those attending entertainments, &c. A lengthy discussion took place as to the best means of preventing so much draft entering the' stage. After so much time was spent in discussing the matter, it is a great pity, io decision was arrived at; for it nmust have been apparent to anyone attending the concert on the night of the 11th, the unsatisfactory state of the stage, great effort having to le made to keep the candles and lamps burning, With the approach of summer snakes are making t...

Hastings. (FROM OUR OWN CORBEBsPNDENT.) At the invitation of Mr and Mrs W. G. Davis, senr., quite a number of young people of both sexes met together to spend an enjoyable evening, the party being given to celebrate the opening of the new and extensive alterations and additions to their boarding house, which the increased demand for accommodation has rendered necessary since the opening of the railway to this place. Ample refreshments were provided for the guests, the Host, Hostess, and their amiable daughters endeavoring to make everybody feel as much at home and as comfortable as possible, in which laudable undertaking they evidently succeeded, judging from the satisfaction expressed by those who were .-present. Music, singing and dancing kept the company actively engaged until' daylight did appear, dispersing then to their homes highly pleased with the entertainment which had been provided for them.
