TYABB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 14 October 1911
TYABB. The Happy Hour Club's dance eventuated last Friday. night. On account of counter attractions in the district, it was not as well patronised as was expected, and although there were only about fourteen couples present, an enjoyable time was in dulged in. Everything was good, floor, music, refreshments and fun. Dancing commenced before nine o'clock and was kept up till nearly three in the morning, and -only weariness caused patroqs to disperse at that hour. The music was pro. vided by. Messrs Carey (piano) and Ricketts (violin), and Mr P. Ryan as M.O., kept things lively in his usual pleasant and courteous style. Chas.berlain's'Cough Remedy is not a common every day oough mixture. It is a meritorious rqmedy for all dangerous and trouhlesome complications resulting from colds in the head, chest or lungs. Sold by all storekeepers.

MORNINGTON JUNCTION [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 14 October 1911
MORNINGTON JUNCTION The Mornigton Junction tennis club gave a tea on their court last Saturday, in honor of Miss Grace Vincombe's approaching marriage to Mr Allan Dicker. Both the lady and gentleman in question are-members of the above named club, and received a number. of useful presents from members. There is such a nnmber of tennis players in this district that the one court is not sufficient, so it is hoped all who are anixious to see a public court put on the newly acquired hall site--or any other place they may decide upon-will roll up to the meeting next Satur day night. Mr Allan Dicker and Miss Grace Vincombe were married at the bride's residence on Wednes day last. The ceremony was per formed by the"Presbyterian clergy man, Rev. J. Kelly.

OUR LETTER BOX. LANGWARRIN'S MUTUAL AND PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 14 October 1911
OUR LETTER BOX. LABGWARRIN'S MUTUAL AND PROGRESS ASSOCIATIONS. Sir,-In reply to my recent letter, your correspondent has come out with a lengthy statement of a mixed charac ter. HaJignoresclestring up the state ments contained in his first, but imtakes a wild flight in all directions. Under lying all his writings he cannot dis guise his partisanshtp for the Mutual, mnd hi admira.?n I,,r- In.. lmw,,L--. IK his first letter he says that most of the newarrivals prefer to join the Mutual; this proves a random statement also, as the latest three new arrivals here have joined tlhe Progress. C,, cernin, most of his so called fresh facts, no comment is necessary; they w?re burtning questions of the hour, and, as suclh, received a mot thorough thrash ing out and were settled by majorities, and although they are of n3 moment now, they are trotted out to bolster up a weak case, or, perhaps; I could say, to lower the prestige of tile Progress anl bring i to that bad way alto gether that his fir...
Mornington Municipal Sale Yards. A PROTEST. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 14 October 1911
Mornington Municipal Sale Yards. A PROTEST. TO TILE EDITOR. Sir,--While admitting the wisdom of most of the remarks of Cr Campbell at the meeting held in Mornington to discuss the alove question, I submit that Cr Campbell should, have taken a wider.view of the future of Morning ton as a centre of an important pro ducing di-trict and seasido resort. Could one be certain that this town will never grow to any extent as a seaside resort, I should be with those whosay to build the yards at the station, or at least I should say it would not matter much. But looking ahead to the future when this most charming,, and without doubt, the most beautifully situated town on the Bay, must extend as its merits deserve, and as a more efficient and convenient railway service will assuredly make it, I contend that sale yards in the middle of the town would be an eyesore, a disadvantage, and a drawback; whereas, in view, of the great possibilities of thedistrict gener ally and the certain growth of agr...

LANGWARRIN [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 14 October 1911
LANCWAHRIN The oversea export of fruit fromni Langwarrin continues to make a steady headway. Although the first consign ment of 100 cases left here, but two I years ago, this season arrangements are being made to export 1200 cases. I A pleasing feature in connection I with export is that increased attention is beingpaid to produce sound and clean fruit by winter spraying with red oil and later with Bordeaux. Mr Williams, of "Rupertston," has a motor sprayer at work. The apple crop promises to 'be heavy, is also most of the soft fruits. Apricots.in most cases have been thinned out by frosts, and. a light setting has taken place. Spraying for codlin moth has begun, and requires strict attention for a time, early spray ing being of the most benefit.. In most orchards ploughing and work ing the ground is nearing completion, and the gardens now show up in trim condition. With most orchardists poultry keep ing is receiving a deal of attention, and the flocks-are being brought to a high st...
