Warren Korrigan will be seen at the Mechanics' Institute tomorrow night in his latest feature, entitled "The Best Mau."

SEAFORD NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 8 July 1921
SE?PORD NOTES Council's or whose quarry ? Rum ours are busy flying about the district concerning the position of what is known as the Council Quarry. Some say Moran and, Cato have,bought it, bat, of course. that is absurd. Then, again, it is hinted that the concern has been sub-let, but this is an equally ridiculous idea, as our muni-. cipal guardians would hardly be so reckless as to sub-let without first calling for tenders. Another rumor is that some road contractor on the Dandenong road has the quarry on a sort of percentage stunt.: If this is so, there will be some wild people about, and someone is likely to come a thud. A public statement of the position would, - I am sure, relieve some very anxious minds. Contractor Jim Finch is making a Yankee dash along Camrum Vale Rd. Digging, plouging, forming and burning, he pure is making that old road slt up. From early morn till late at night, the good work goes on. A streak of energy, is Finch, and we all wish him well. By the way, w...

Sir,-The frivolous letter in your leassue of the 10th inst written nndei the none de.plnumae of Retribution' caused great' consternation out here among the ratepayers, and many ex claimed-What manner of being iE this who takes our beeath away with a hurricane of Biblical gage, any of which would possibly amuse the Lo er Grades in Sunday School ? Prob ably, he is not even a ratepayer. How -ever, even-a silly letter may-do some good to our cause,- as it may Brouse interest in'the apathetic ratepayers. I take it as a compliment to be liken ed unto Joseph of Biblical fame, as he was some prophet, and possibly history may repeat itself and some of the prophecies foretold by Joseph of Somerville may be fulfilled. I do not intend going into the pros and coos of the case with a "sprullcer" who is not man enough to sign his name. I will here give you another tip-If the ratepayers will put up a fight the day of retribution ma...
