Cowes Topics [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 May 1921
Cowes Topics Rain having softened the ground, the digginn of chicory is now in full swine, and is likely to prove re munerative. The freights via Stony Pointtto Melbourne have become prohibitive. It is impossible to send. onions, potatoes and chaffand make a proft out of it. However, things may Improve, for I hear that the old ketch 'Stephen"- is coming back to the Cowes run, and is to be commanded' byher old owner. A concert was given by the Cowes Choral Society at the Mechanics' Hall last Thursday; and proved a great success. The items were numerous and varied. Solos were.I sung by Mesdames Robinson, Neil son and Davey with a sweetness that met approbation and ap planus from an appreciative audience. The choral songs by the full choir were rendered successfully and showed the result of painstaking teaching on the part of the teacher, the Rev; E. Robinson. Mr D. Robb proved his capacity as a violinist and reciter, and also gave:us a skirl of the pipes in fullHighland costume M?r Gr...

Letter Box To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 May 1921
Letter Box To the Editor. Sir,-May I as an outside, be al lowed to express myself on a matter which attracted my attention, name ly, the splendid lighting system at Pearcedale Hall I had the pleasure of being present at a very enjoyable function. held there on Wednesday, the 18th inst. Great was my surprise on beholding the brilliant illumina tion of which Pearcedale can now boast. On enquiring the nature of the light, I was informed by one of the trustees of the hall that it was installed by the Moorelight Co. of Anstralia, and has advantages over otheresimilar lights-- ist cheaper than any other, and a great saving over the usual kerosene lamps. What struck me as very advantagious was the sim plicity with whioh'it can be lighted. I have lived until, quite recently in town, arnd have always felt the want of a good light in the country, but surely country people can now be as comfo:table in that respect as their more fortunate town brothers, and a saving of money too. In conclusion ...
Mr Downward Replies To Charges Made by Brighton Hostel Inmate To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 May 1921
Mr Downward Replies To Charges Made by Brighton Hostel Inmate To the Editor. J would like to give the facts with regard to a letter appearing last issue re my refusing to admit dis abled soldiers to the benefit race meeting at Mornington. I did not refuse to admit the soldiers in question to the meeting, because injured and disabled soldiers always obtain free admittance to all parts of the course, and a good many soldiers were granted these privil eges as usual on May 12th inst. I did, however, refuse to admit their motor car to the Paddock, for the reason that there is a minute on the books of the club to the effect "That no motor cars be allowed inside the Paddock, and that any cars containing injured and disabled soldiers be paddocked in the space set apart for members cars at the paddock cntrance gates." This letter gives the other side of the case. Thanki6ig you, Yours &c. HERBERT DOWNWARD, Sec. Mlornington Racing Club.

Vines, of Somerville, had secured third prize for soprano solo at the A.N.A. Competitions.

After all competitors in the six sections have sung, those obtaining the highest number of marks are selected for a final com petition, which in this class is not until June 17th. We thank Miss Vines for drawing our attention to this matter. Her many friends and admirers throughout the district are delighted at the high place she has won in competition with some ...
