Moorooduc Sports. SUCCESSFUL GATHERING. The above sports wore held on Wed nesday last.under favorable weather con ditions and with a very good muster of old friends and new ones. The only drawback was the lateness that visitors,! and, consequently, race entrants arrived on the ground. It is the earnest en deavor of the committee to have visitors arrive before 12 o'clock, have a picnic lunch, and be ready'by 1 o'clock. Late arrival means a late start and a dark finish, and the picnic committee would ask that in future visitors come early. Re sults :-Maiden Plate, 5 entries-Les Gar lick 1, A.

OUR LEI?ER BOX. (We do not necessarily identify ourselves withthe opinions expressed by cortes podents.) FOOTBALLERS' CHAMPION SHIP. A REPLY. TO THE EDrIOR OF THE STFDARD. Siir,-Mr J. McArthur's letter, ap pearing in your last issue, has been brought under my notice. I am glad to note that McArthur is what I al ways thought him to be, a good sport, and as the race in question was un doubtedly a very unsatisfactory one, I appreciate his giving me another chance to prove that I won the race, and show, further, that I am entitled to the medal and Footballers' Cham pionship. Mr McArthur mentioned the judges' decision was endorsed by the refree. I might say the decision given by the judges was rightly said to be wrong by at least eight-tenths of the spectators, including some of Mo-nington's leading residents, and may I ask was the referee on the tape However, I have no wish to enter into a newspaper controversry, but I desire to accept with pleasure Mr 3lcArthur's off.r to run again for...

Somerville Show. PRIZETAKERS FOR FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 25 March 1911

Somerville Show. PRIZETAKERS FOR FRUIT. In our report of the Somerville show last issue, we inadvertently stated that in the fruit classes the most successsul exhibitor was Mr Fred Harley It should have read, "one of the most successful exhibitors." We haive been twitted by narrow-minded critics with giving 'all the praise to a Frankston exhibitor' Apart from the fact that Mr Harley is not a resident of the town mentioned, his orchard being situated half-way between Somerville and Frankston, that exhibitor's name was specially mentioned because he was a young competitor, and of the stamp that deserves encouragement. -i- Rather than show unbecoming jeal ousy, those growers who were beaten by the young orchardist (some of whom were exhibiting at shows before Har ley, jun., had donned knicker bockers) should be pleased to see the success of a young exhibitor, and to extend to him congratulations would be a much better spirit to show than to sneeringly carp at what was only an unintenti...

Stray Pars. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 25 March 1911

Stray Pars. A local authority vouches for the correctness of the following. A wild stamp of a man, nicknamed 'That blackguard Murphy," was living in a township not a hundred miles from London. He gained that epitaph on acc;unt of-his notorioTs drinking capa bilities and his wicked habit of con tinually lbating his wife and daugh ters in a vicious manner. Eventually things came to such a pass that the priest of thte parish utterly condemned him and urged him, successfully, to go to other parts. The announcement wan made from the pulpit the following Sunday that 'Murphy" .had departed for other and perhaps wilder scenes, the priest didn't know where, and wasn't particularly anxious habout the exacbtspot. Whilst speaking, however ,a?tlegrani twas handed to him whicl conveyed the infornmation'that Murph; had arrived in London. The pries immediately asked his' congregation t rise and sing "God Save the Queen." A serious accident was averted or Monday by the prompt action of th erlgine dr...
