The Wizard Light To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 3 June 1921
The Wizard Light To the Editor. Sir,-It gave me great pleasure to read in your last leane, "Looker On's" observations on the Pearcedale Hall illumination scheme under the air-gas system. as one good plant always ad vertiaes a better one. For places that electric light and gas companies can not-or will not-supply, except at a loos (i.e, fall of d.p electric and coat of mains, loss of pressure, gas), the air gas system is without parallel. We have over 15,000 buildings, in cluding shire halls, banks, butter factories, and stores, lit with this system in Australia, from one light upwards-all of whom give us excel lent testimonials as an economical, safe, reliable and easily operatea system. For a match-lightint, auto matic cleaning, insect and windproof light, THE WIZARD is unsurpassed; in fact, unsurpassable, as these are patented devices. Should you desire to be as up-to-date and comfortable as the beneficiaries of the Pearcedale SHall, at a minimum of expense, AF TER you have interv...

I visited Frank ston, and, acompanied by Mr Sam bell (shire engineer) and Mr Klaner (secretary of Seaford Progress Asso ciation) Inspected parts oftthe Kana nook Creek, from its mouth to Car rum. All the drainage from Frank ston flows into the creek, which, near the mouth particularly, is certainly in a most objectionable state, In order to free the creek from its pre sent filthy condition Mr Sambell proposes to construct automatic tide gates near Carrum at point marked "A" on the accompanying plan, and by cleaning out the present creek bed, dredge a channel from these gates to the mouth of Kananook Creek, the minimum section being twelve feet bottom with three feet of water at low water. The dredging of the chan nel would not in itself solve the difficulty, and the scheme is depend ent for success on the flow that can be obtained down ...

.ie.mpire's sWhistle Newsy Notes about the Game and Its Players CONDUCTED BY OUR SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE ment, of course, but It is as well to give publicity to these things.

Recreation .Ground The same deputation asked the Council to support a proposal that fve acres of foreshore at Seaford be set aside as a recreation reserve. Cr Armstrong said Carrum had a recreation reserve on the foreshore, and he saw no reason why Seaford should not have one. Cr Unthank-Do you want a bowling green too ?

Seaford's Requirements Two Deputations to the Shire Council [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 3 June 1921
Seaford's Requirements Two Deputations to the Shire Council Messrs W. Klauer. J. Martin and Stewart of Seaford waited on the Council, asking that action be taken to relieve them of flood waters from the Government plantation. Cr Armstrong, who introduced the deputation, said it was not fair that the Government should drain water on to private properties. Mr Klauer, said this was a long standing trouble-ever since the Government took over 1370 acres on the Dandenong Road. The Govern ment had constructed big drains and turned the water on to private lands. The water should be taken to Kana nook Creek. At present the water backed up and covered the best of his and neighbors land. Mr Martin, said the water did a lot of damage to crops and land. He thought the work of drainage should be commenced at the other end. The shire ungineer said the ques tion of culverts across the road was a big item. It was thought that a drain might meet the 'case, but it meant an 8ft out and the question of ...
