RYE [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 19 December 1908

RYE. The harvest here is in full swing, and from all appearances, will be very good. It only shows that with proper attention to the ground, and giving it a fair chauce,iA the shape of manuring, fallowing, etc., that the yields in the district will fairly compare with other parts, and considering its close prox imity to the Melbourne market and the cheap rates of carriage of water, it is remarked that more attention should be paid to this Peninsula by tillers. of the soil, instead of taking up arbunda in the arid districts of the State. The jetty work is nearly completed, and will Io a great boon to the ex porters of produce from this locality,. and considering that the high price of £8 2s 6d per ton had been obtained for the wattle bark (it being considered the best in the State) it is surprising that che cultivation and growth of these trees should not be more ex tensively carried on, for they lthe trees) will grow here spontaneously.

MOOROODUC. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 19 December 1908

PU UROOBUC. The dry weather in ripening off the crops, and, harvest operations are general. The oats and wheat crops are very good, but the " recent record " will not be beaten in this district, al though they will. compare favorably with yields obtained anywhere for quality. The proposed childron's trip by train to the "Zoo" took place on Friday. This was arranged and carried out by Miss Morris, who, to secure cheap fares. was' obliged to take 30 tickets, and this number, at times appeared to be bhoyoud require ments, but on the festive morning quite a large crowd i"ssembled on our station, dressed in holida? tt, ire, and so much resembl!ed a wedding party, that various remarks were passed by passengers from Mornington, brho had not heard of the excursiou. Before the arrival of the train all fears of financial loss were dispersed, Mr and Mrs Jas. Mitchell and the new owner of "Annesleigh" (Mr Falls) kindly coming to the-rescue, and putting up the numbQr of tickets sold to 31. The p...

Frankston and Hastings Shire Council. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 19 December 1908

Frankston 'and Hianstings _Shire-Council.> The following report was submitted by the'shire engineer (Mr A. D.'Pleydell) at last meeting : I'have to report for the past month as follows- 1.-Re Mr Pyke's.letter as to the drainage near his property at Tyabb.-I have inspected this. and find that. no ground for complaint has been caused by any action of the Council. If- Mr Pyke feels that he has a grievance' in any way with-his neighbour, it is simply a matter between themselves. 2.-I have noticed a very undesiriable practice with the travehing teams passing through Frankston. About. two weeks ago three waggons and horses camped almost in the middle of the road near the water trough. It is not only dangerous to the travelling public, but the nuisance left behind is anything but likely to give a good inmpression to visitors. 3.-The drainage referred to by the Frankston Progress Association in Playne Street is in a bad state. As it 'is only a small matter I have arranged to have the def...

PENINSULA ASSOCIATION. Saturday's w6re the last contests in connection with the above Associa tion to take place before Christmas, and matches will not be resumed until after the New Year (Saturday, 9th prox.) Balnarring faced their long trip to Frankston like true sports, and had the satisfaction of at least giving the. unbeaten Frankstonites a rather un expected " shaking," though the home team's bowlers' Deane and Baxter, were not called into service, and others of less deadly effect given a chance. The visitors batted first, and after a very creditable innings the last wicket fell with the score at 11E. Myers was top scoier- with 27, a useful and at tractive performance. E. Buckley (18 not out) also batted well, and the next highest to him were Oswin (13), and Sherlock, a promising Frankston colt (10). Frankston reversed the manner of sending in their batsmen, somewhat, and when at one stage, five wickets had fallen for 28, things appeared to be rather serious Baxter, however, r...
