Cricket. PENINSULA ASSOCIATION. FRANKSTON v. SOMERVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 20 February 1909

PENINSULA ASSOCIATION. FRBANKSTON v. SOMERVILLE. The above .teams 'met for the third time this seasonon Saturday last, on. the ground of the former; thejresult be ing a draw,much in favor of thevisitors. Somerville batted first, Grant- and Martin opening to the bowling of Deane and Baxter. For a time the runsii came very slowly, but before .many overs were bowled both batsmeun commenced hitting, Martin being the first open with some nice leg strokes. Fifty runs .were up before a change was made in the bowling, Robertson taking the leather from Deane, and Burton filling Baxter's place at the other end. The change, however, had little or no effect on either batsmen, and a long partnership was soon evi dent. Grant was batting in his best style, playing all round the wicket with fine judgment, his driving being especially good. Martin was also " wielding the willow " to perfection, but had given a couple of difficult chances. When the first century was reached a change was again made in...

Marine Excursion to Frankston. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 20 February 1909

Marine Excursion to Frankston. On Monday the employers of the Williamstown dockyard held their cursionists came across by boat (the Lady Loch), and the weather being delightfully fine, a most pleasant trip resulted. The Lady Loch, (under the command of Captain Livingstone) is a fine boat, and as this was the first excursion of its kind to call at Frank ston for many years, there was a deal of excitement in the town, and conse sequently a good number witnessed the steamer's arrival and departure from the pier. It is surprising that more boats do-not make Frankston a port of call, as the captain states there is no risk whatever in ordinary wea ther. There was a large crowd on board, and after disembarking, the picnickers adjourned to the beach and park, where a really enjoyable day was spent, music being dispensed by a first-class brass band, and dancing and sports merrily indulged in. The return trip was commenced at about 5 o'clock.

SOMERVILLE. (Copies of the STANDaaD can be obtained from Mr D. M. Bett.) The Rev. Mr Pope, from Cran bourne, had his new jinker broken up a bit on Wednesday. The pony slipped the rope off the post it was tied to, and took the jinker around Mr Grant's orchard, until it came to a big log, when the wheels and body of trap parted company. No one was hurt.

Our Letter Box. A WARNING NOTE. [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents] TO THE EDITOR OF THE STANDARD [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 20 February 1909

Our Letter Box.. A WARNING NOTE. LWe do not necessarily identify onrslveio with the opinions expressed ly corrcspondents) TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE STANDARD Sir,-The attitude of the Flinders and KIanerong Council in regard to the foreshore reserves in the Centre and East ridings, as disclosed in your report of last meeting, demands the earnest attention of ratepayers. That the council can seriously con template abandoning control of that picturesque and valuable metal-bearing area is alnost beyond belief. What is the petty cost of destroying rabbits compared to the perpetual payment of " royalty " upon stone-even if it could be obtained as couvenientl;-, which is unlikely. The blunder of allowing the quarry on Clarke's land to pass, from mistaken reasons of present economy, will surely penalize the Dromana end of the riding for all time. Let us not have to regret a more seriously short sighted policy at Flinders and Balnar ring. It must be clearly understood, that should the council aba...

: VSorting Items. The Tyabb Racing' Club have had to postpone their race meeting from. Wednesday next, to a date to be fixed in March.- The committee found that they were unable to get the course in proper order so soon, and sooner than rush matters, they have wisely post poned it. The Somerville ponies, the Joker and Phoebe, were* sold at Kirk's Bazaar last week, at what must be considered low prices for that class of pony, viz., 8 and 7J guineas re spectfully. We hear that a number of ponies and hacks are being got in for the Dromana races on St. Patrick's Day. A real good programme of seven events will be run off, four for horses, and three for ponies.

"AN IDEAL PLEASURE RESORT." [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 February 1909

"AN IDEAL PLEASURE RESORT." The current issueof the Williamstown Chronicle, in its reference to the Dock employees' picnic at Frankston last week says: " They say we were the first picnic people to go to Frankston by boat. Picnickers to that place seem to invar iably journey by train. I think all Frankston turned out to see us," remarked pleasant-faced Secretary W. J. Ambery, leader of the .executive that this' year arranged the highly enjoyable Alfred. Graving Dockyard picnic, as he. gleefully recounted the intense pleasure of Monday s outing. And judged by his'commendations of Frankston. as an ideal pleasure resort it' is quite on the cards that that locality will in . future -years, (climatic conditions favorable) be favored as a trysting-ground. A factor of Frank ston in the agreeability of the trip was the official interest bestowed-upon the voyagers by Constable J. Stephenson, there stationed. Promptly at 9 a.m. her '" ladyship" unwarped, and Frank ston wasreached in extremely...

Rheumatism. LUMBAGO AND SCIATICA. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 February 1909

Rheumatism. LUMI BAGO AND SCIATICA. The attacks are generally brought on by chills when the body is over heated, or by exposure to damp or cold draughts, which act, not upon the bones or muscles but upon the uric acid in the blood, which is the cause of the disease. Uric acid is found in small quantities in -many articles of diet, which when consumed pass into the blood. The failure of the liver and kidneys to filter and absorb this acid leads to an accumula tion in the system tends to clog the circulation, and harden the tissues forming the blood vessels. Thus every movement. of the affected parts causes you intense agony. The pains are effected more or less by cold or heat. A damp day will double you up, or the warmthdf the bedwillintensify the iain>. " 'For a periodof tien years i was-a'< sufferer from Rheumatics," writes Mrs' Elizabeth Lovell, 134 Young Street, Fitzroy, "my feet being the place of attack they used to swell and become very painful.

As Others See Us. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 February 1909

As Others See Us. A visitor to Frankston during the holidays has written a series of descrip tive articles on his holiday, whichi have been publised' in the Woadend "Star," under the nom-de plumez of "Santa Claus." A copy of the paper containing the concluding article has been-handed to us by a former resi dent of Woodend (Mr Higgs, of the Frankston post office), from which we take. the following extract: Much remains yet for councillors and the progressive society, by way of sanitation, to bring Frankston into line with other sea-side resorts. That back creek between the town and the beach presents many difficulties and would have been a nut for the late Sir John Code," of canal fame, to crack. Yet, if Frankston means to hold its own with other holiday re sorts, that "slough of despond" must be improved, cost what it may: Some days the stench arising'therefrom was most offensive and a positive menace to health, and cross it one had to on the way to the beach and dressing sheds.

Kananook Creek. A DEPUTATION DECIDED UPON. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington and Dromana Standard — 27 February 1909

Kanarnook Creek. A DEPUTATION DECIDED UPON. The library at the Frankston Me chanics (the main room being re floored) wits well filled on Saturday evening, when the President of the shire (Cr Baxter) presided over the adjourned- meeting re Kananook Creek. The Chairman called upon MI A. D. Pleydell, C.E., to give them further information. MAr Pleydell said that he had not been able to give the time he desired to the matter since the previous meet ing, on account of a family bereave ment. He had, however, considered the idea formerly mentioned, and was perfectly convinced that a practical scheme could be carried out, by bring ing water at high tide into the creek, excavating a channel in the creek, and erecting proper flood gates at the mouth.. (Mr Pleydell explained the scheme, on the same lines as at the previous meeting, going into details as to pipes, etc.) The work outlined, the speaker said, could be carried out at a cost of not more than a thousand pounds. If.ie Government ;were...
