LANGWARRIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 25 July 1908
LANGWARRIN. Quite a chapter of accidents occurred here during the last fortnight. Mrs Park, while driving home from Cran bourne last Monday week in company with her daughter, son-in-law, and their little child, of two years, fell heavily from the vehicle. Mrs Park' received a terrible shaking, and has since complained of severe pains in one shoulder and down the side, which is causing some alarm. A second ac cident happened on Saturday afternoon last, at a working bee held by the Pro gress Association, when Mr A. J. Clarke's horse was-thrown down while carting sand. However, no damage was donze beyond breaking the shaft of the dray. On the evening of the same day, while Mr and Mrs C. Murray and several others were journeying to Frankston to a concert, the horse fell on some newly-spread metal, breaking the shaft of the cart, and threw some of the occupants out with great force. Mrs Murray appeared to be the most unfortunate; she received a bad shak ing, and several bruises. The othe...

RYE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 25 July 1908
RYE LY- We regret to have to report the death of Mr Charles Myers, of this township, a late officer of the police, after a residence here of over twenty years. His death was caused by a very bad attack of influenza, and although skilfully treated by Dr. Weld, of Dromana, the disease had got too firm a hold before the doctor was con sulted. Deceased was buried on Monday, the 20th inst., his funeral being attended by a good number of the inhabitants of the district. As there has been a sum of £120 voted for repairs to the jetty, it is hoped that a start will soon be made, for it is in a most dangerous and dilapidated condition. It requires new planking all along, and some of the piles are in a very unsafe state. The inhabitants are looking forward anxiously for the commencement of the work so ur gently required.
District News MOORODUC. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 25 July 1908
District News MOOROODUC! The large bridge repairing contracts recently let by the shire of Mornington, and secured by two local residents, have now been commenced. The tim ber for their use has been hewn in the valuable forests of Red Hill, and hav ing been hauled to its destination, the contractors are now starting operations in earnest; quite a procession of carts laden with "tucker," bedding, tools, etc., passed along one of our principal thoroughfares, and caused consterna tion amongst many of the curious, until it was rumored that the passing show was only from the back blocks, heading for the sea, where they are to re-deck a bridge thatwill act as a grand stand for the nobility of Mornington to view the passing of the American fleet up the Bay. One of the party has had great experience in large bridge building works in Tasmania, having helped in the • construction of three large railway bridges over the Derwent, and another riAlway, pile mile long.- With this vast experience w...
An Australian Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 25 July 1908
An Australian Industry. For the past five years Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills have been manufsc tured. in Australia, and we believe they are the only purgative pills on the market that are made in this country by the proprietors. Most other pills are made by manufacturing chemists and sold in bulk to the speculative pill companies to be boxed and labelled. We take no chance of this kind with Dr. Morse's Indian Root Pills, and we know that the formula does not vary one-hundreth part of a grain. We a'so know that the ingredients are up to the standard, both in strength and quality. The crude material is imported direct, being ground by our own machines in our American laboratory, where the greatest care is observed in the selec tion of the Roots and Game from which this crude material is made. We have both in Sydney and Wellington (New Zealand) up-to-date plants for the rmanufacture of these pills, and shonid any of oar friends be interested we will be only too pleased to show them th...

DROMANA v. FLINDERS. The Flinders footballers journeyed to Dromana on Saturday last to play a match against the locals. The after noon was fine and the playing ground in good order. Edwards captained the visitors, and J. Wilson the locals. In the first quarter the visitors-were kept constantly on the defensive, whilst the locals set up a vigorous attack. At the change of ends the scores were - Dromana 3 goals 9 be hinds; Flinders, 1 behind. In the second term to make the game more interesting, E., Rudduck played for the visitors. The third quarter was more evenly contested, Dromana scor ing 1 goal to Flinders 5 behinds.. In the last term the locals had things pretty well their own way, and the final result was-Dromana, 12-15; Flinders 2-6. The goal-kickers for the winners were-G. McLear 3, J. Wilson 2, S. George 2, Rudduck, Wyatt, Counsel, J. McLear and Lacco; &nbsp; for Flinders-Blaubaum (2). Boyle umpired impartially. For the winners, besides the goal-kickers, good footbal...
SORRENTO. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 25 July 1908
SORRENTO. There was great excitement here on Friday morning, the 19th inst., when it was reported that a whale was in the Bay and had got stranded about a mile-and-a-half out in front of the pier. A party of adventurous spirits soon got together, composed of store keepers, publicans, butchers, saddlers etc., and under the guidance of a cele brated local fisherman-like the "Three Sailors of Bristol City,"-they took a boat and went to "see," and to parody the "Whalers' Yarn," The boat was launched, the lines all stowed, And the skipper cried with glee; Now, bend to your oars with a will, my men And soon that whale we'll see. &nbsp; They struck the spot, but no whale did go With a harpoon in its tail, For oh ! and alas, there was no fish ! and they Did not catch that whale, brave boys! They did not catch that whale ! For when they got to their desti nation it turned out to be the top of a sand-bank, exposed by an excep tionally low tide, and what had been taken for a whale's fl...
