THE FRANKSTON PROGRESS LEAGUE AND FRANKSTON PROGRESSIVE AND IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 2 September 1911
THE FIANKSTON PROGRESS LEAGUE AND FRANKSTON PROGRESSIVE AND IM PROVEMENT ASSOCIATION. TO TIE EDITOR. Sir, - -My leries and comments pub. lished by you in previous issues having failed to galvanize the Progress League into action or any signs of vitality, I now turn my attention to the old Association. It would be interesting to know the circumstances of its unfor. tunate demise. I have before me atl old printed annual Ieport with balance sheet of that body. It shows tht a sum of upwards of £43 was raised, and that the committee met on fdur teen occasions during the year. Its work included the erection of the public bathing boxes for men .anl women, the planting of many series of tre.: and the conversion of tile on sightly cotting with the open drain on the north side of the oval into a grassy sloping bank, together with the laying of pipes beneath the surface to take the overflow fiomn "Like Comeo," Bur ton Avenue, in the Park, was. cleared and its maintenance continu:d by the Assoc...

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 2 September 1911
NOTES. 'Tis well that a certain Christian EndeavorSociety did not hold its meetings earlier in the season, or the Mornington team would hardly have obtained a position in the final four, for more than half of their team would- ere this have been rendered fit subjects for 'First Aid.' The Melbourne dailies have re cently contained accounts of the famous fighters who are on their way to Australia-Jack Johnson, McVea, Langford, Flynn, Clabby, and others being. mentioned."-The trouble will be to find opponents for them all. Had Mr McIntosh been present at a series of fistic encounters held on the Peninsula during the week, he would have had his task considerably lightened. The following fistic fame aspirants provided a full evening's entertain ment. In the heavyweight division, The "Parson" and Frank Boil, put up three willing rounds. The wel ter weights were well represented John L. Sullivan and "Crack" Fleetfoot were a very even pair, both very frequently finding the point. In an exhi...
TO KEEP YOUR TONGUE FROM EVIL SPEAKING [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 2 September 1911
rO KEEP YOUR TONGUE FROM EVIL SPEAKING About another-make it pass, Before you speak, three gates of god, Three narrow gates-first, "Is it true ?" Then "Is it needful ?"-in .your mind; Give truthful answer; and the next, If you are tempted to reveal /A tale to you someone has told, Is last and narrowest, "Is it kind ?" And if, to reach your lips at lust, It passes through these gateways three, Then you may tell the tale, nor fear What the result of speech may be. -Selected.

FOOTBALL. PENINSULA A S )CIATION FIRST tSEMI-FINAL. HSTINGS EASILY BEAT BALNARRING. The first semi-final match foi the Peninsula Association premier ship, played between Hastings an, Balnaning at Mornington lasi Saturday, was a very one-sided contest, there being practical11 only "one team in it" from start tc fnish. The weather was fine, and a large attendance witnessed the play. The majority of spectators were too mean to pay 6d to see the match, preferring to stay on the road and look at the game without paying admission. Hastings were without Robinson, Slocombe and Sposito, while Bal narring had their crack ruck man, Tiny Buckley, absent through ill n Soon alter the bounce, got to worko-.woil?oneor ing first point, and thenBryant snapped asixer.

A Vocalist's Dilemma. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 2 September 1911
A Vocalist's Dilemma. ,--}--4 One of the Somerville vocalists of some repute very kindly offered to help at a concert recently and hied him off to the concert hall, not many miles distant from that centre. He had bought a brand new song and had convinced himself ,f his ability to sing and interpretate it to his satisfaction. Ont his appearance on the platform the usual plaudits re sounded through the building. But somehotv or other the song did not go with the, swing it went with at the rehearsals As our worthy singer was sanding meditatively, with his hands bhlind his back, g:azing on the floor in float of hint, his eyes strayed to his booto. In his hurry to get to his d:estiititio in time he had forgotten to change his knock-about-home boots, andl to his disgust he could see his toe sticking out of his boot. When his name was called for his next song, he was "non est." Urgent business had called him away.

"Helpless and Hopeless State of Affairs." A COUNCILLOR RESIGNS FROM THE FLINDERS AND KANGERONG COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 2 September 1911
"Helpless and Hopeless State of Affairs." A COUNCILLOR RESIGNS FROM TIIE FLINDERS AND &nbsp; KANGERONG COUNCIL. The Flinders and Kangerong shire will soon have to alter its name. A wag has suggested "Shindies-and Hanged-if-we'll go on.' Certainly it is in a continual state of unrest, and the peculiarities of its management would perplex anyone. Some of the coun cillors are shrewd, level-headed busi ness men, fit and able to grapple with any ticklish municipal problem, but others think their whole and sole duty is to slang-whang each other, and to fill in their spare time slap-banging the printer who asks for their adver tising and doesn't want their cheap and nasty printing. The shire coun cil's doings during the past 12 months would give matter for an interesting book. Their secretaries come and holiday as long as they can by the seaside, and when things get too un comfortable off they go in search of more congenial company. &nbsp; *-At the last meeting` Cr Terry fo...
