FAMILY MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 12 April 1890
FAM, ILY .1E 1 2'?ES. "Boast of the day in tlie evening" is a Russian proverb. A just economyisnotniggar:dliness; one need not be a niser - in avoiding the extravagance of a spendthrift. ce ought not to judge other people by their beliefs, beecase we do not know how they have been brought about ; but we may jusily apply the crucial test to our own views,- and honor or dishonor them accordingly. .Friendship has a noble effect npon all states alnd conditions. It relieves our cares, raises our hopes, :nd abates, our fears. A friend who relates his success talks himself into a new plclasure, aii, by -oiening his mis fortunes; leaves part of them behind h im .• The home is the crystal of society, the nucleus of ,national character;: and frnio thit source, be it pure or tainted, issuctie Ihabits, principles, :id mnaxims which govern publie as well as priviate life.

FRUIT GROWING INDUSTRY [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 12 April 1890
F "RUIT GRO TW G I; D US'TR F It is to be hoped that planters of fruit trees will, in .future, adopt the advice given by Mv r Larsen to allow their trees gre?ter space than is gener ally the case; his opinion is that the trees should not be less than 2 feeoot apart, with peach and other early bearing fruit trees between. He might even have. proposed a greater distance for apples and pear s; in the United States very- few trees are planted less thaui 80 feet apart, even where irrigation is not practised, and irrigated trees should certainly,.be allowed a greater space; than 'those, more .cspeeially '~ihere. iititniediate treesiar:.p phiitd also. Those : who liave seen old apple or I:pear trees oii suitabl soil and .staiding' siligly' either in the old: coutvry or in the colonyiv;will iidmit thata. circle of 30 feet diameter may be eaisily covered. Besides, trees require iiirie 'all sides; for if growing into or reven touching' .each other, there nmust be a loss of fruit therefore a' ...

THE FRANKSTON FOOTBALL CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 12 April 1890
THIE FRANKSTON FOOTBALL CLUB. With the advent of winter the bat and the ball are laid aside and our young athletes do their best to get into good form for the rougher, though just as manly, game of football. The Frankston boys are still young at the game, so to speak, but their success during their short career of three years has been most encouraging. Out of 38 matches played during that time they have succeeded in winning 28, losing 6 and drawing 4, which speaks volumns for them. The com- ing season promises to be as success- ful as ever, as most of the old players will don the red and black again, in addition to whom we have several new men and also some very promising juniors who will have a good trial. Everybody would be glad to see Westaway back once more after his recent accident and his more recent misfortune, our friend, Jimmy Major will once more astonish the crowd with his brilliant play, while Kemp who showed such fine form last year, will again do service for Frankston,...
