Fancy Dress Skating Carnival. AT MORNINGTON. A BRILLIANT GATHERING. The above carnival, which took place in the Mechanics' Institute, on Wednesday night of last week, was indeed a brilliant gathering, and reflected the highest credit on the management. Several new features were introduced, including egg and spoon races, potato races, musical chairs, etc., which created much amusement and were tho waghly Tn joý-ed by.ll precnt"-` The principal feature of the evening was the Grand March, in which 26 skaters in fancycostume took part, headed by Mr N. McAr thur, as "Nigger Belle," and Miss' M. Sullivan as "Sweet Sixteen." As the couples gracefully glided through the different figures, it presented a very attractive appear ance, and it was considered by the onlookers as difficult to select the prettiest costume as it was to pick the winner of the Melbourne Cup. Among the first favorites mentioned were 'Sweet Sixteen,' 'Cinderella,' 'Fairy,' and the 'Spanish Girl.' The potato race' was wo...

O' UR LETTER BOX. (Wc do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by corres pondents.) CATTLE SECTIONS AT FRANK STON SHOW. TO TlHE EDITOR. Sir,-Would you kindly allow me space in your columns for a few re marks se Frankston show. The cattle is the subject of my letter, and I hope the conmmitte of the Frankston Society will look the matter over. The Ayr shire cattle are always a fine and creditab'e lot., and I think the Jerseys are equally the same. The Ayrshire have seven sections, whilst the Jersey have fire sections. I think it would be a good plira if there were two more sections adled to the Ayrshire and four to the admirable Jersey. Those sections should be for best heifer 1) years old and the same for the hull in the class B. In class C (Jerseys) I consider it would be better to have best yearling bull (as there is best yearling heifer in clans B) and best bull 1f years old and best heifer If years old That would make, nine sections for the Tattle (both b...

LANGWARRIN PROGRESS AS SOCIATIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 4 November 1911

LANGWARRIN PROGRESS AS. SOCIATIONS. TO TIIE EDITOR. Sir,-In J. A's. lhst letter he shifts his ground, his present position being now untenable. He is now cl-mour ing fora pub ic meeting. That silent, tenacious spirit of the bush he so aptly por:raye'd, would surely be out of place in the glare of the fmtlihlea, but will still continue on his mission to direct the public attention to -uch matters which, while not benefiting anyone, aims a subtle blow at the Progress Association. Such has been my aim, and my reviews of facts as furnished by J. A. has justified my actions. I am sorry he now feels the want of such support that a public meeting might afford him. However, as I am re viewing more fully some facts present d in his previous letter, I am afraid he will only have a few threadbare relics to fscinate the meeting with. In my last I skirmished around his so called facts, giving him the opportunity to retrieve his ground and leave his protege, "The Mutual," in a safer position; thi...

OBITUARY. MR. JAMES DAVEY. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 4 November 1911

OBITUARY. MR. JAMES DAVEY. It is with regret we have to chronicle the death, at the age of 56, of Mr James Davey, a respected resi- dent of long standing at Frankston, which occurred at Melbourne on Fri- day last, Mr Davey, though years ago a sufferer on account of ill-health, had recently been exceptionally well, but an attack of cerebral hemorrhage about a fortnight ago necessitated him entering a hospital, and though he railed somewhat, the attack proved fatal, as stated above. The deceased gentleman, who had been living in St. Kilda for the past couple of years, was born at Gardiner's Creek, Victoria, but lived the greater part of his life at Davey's Bay, Frank- ston. He was the second eldest son of Mr Jas. Davey, one of the pioneers of this district, and after whom Davey's Bay was called. For some time the deceased gentleman lived at Red Hill, but the greater part of his life was passed at "Marysville," Davey's Bay, Frankston, erected by his father, Mr Jas. Davey, in 1851. Some...

The stylea.was .catch.; as catch can, Woods gaining' the -first fall in 31 minutes. Tower, however, forced his opponedt to the carpet in the next two bouts in 21 and 3 min utes respectively. Woods' supporters were very confident of. success, and although their m ,n performed well' in\ the first bout he lacked weight and stamina.. Tower.possesses great ten.a cityand concentration. He endeavors to raise the manly art. of self :defence, and to teach the youdh that they should defiat their opponents without disabling them. The match proved a fine exhibition,- and both men were heartily applauded. Mr McNaughten was referee. The boxing preliminaries consisted of bout+ between Wild Bill Hicks v.
