Miepoll and Branjee Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 15 May 1885
Ylepoll and Branjee notes. By OIaVER DAY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDWIT.) 1 really think I shallbe obliged to resign my position as syour correspondent, and hand over my peni to somle one who can make a great deal out of very little; for I find it almost impossible to get any news that is likely to interest your many rea ders. Ploughing andsowing takelupmost of our attention just. now, and is the subject of conversation whereverone goes abouthero, a spirit of healthy rivalry being generated among the farmers in their endeavours to vie with each other, as to the acreage un der crop ; wlhich, by-the-bye, is largewhen the ploughing' is finished, but grows very much like the cow's tail as soon as reaping time approaches. Great interest is-centred in the Euroa Bicycle Club Sports on Queen's Birthday, and the Euroa people may- expect. a very strong contingent from here to put in an appearance. The parrots and magpies take a little attention; thesepestsare numerousenough. We have every varie...

TIE movement, which has for some time been in progress, having forits ob ject the secession of parts of Long wood and Monea from the Shire of Goulburn and their incorporation with that of Euroa, is one of great import anceto theresidentsprimarilyconcerned and scarcely less so to the whole of the shire ratepayers. The area mentioned has been for some time a sort a no man's land. The residents have not been subject to taxation, although they. are part and parcel of Goulburn shire, and the only improvements effected in the shape of road making, clearing, &c., have been carried out by our council. As a matter - of fact several persons have been levied upon by our rate col lector, and their payments have gone to swell the shire =offers. This, how ever, has not been done wittingly, as, owing to some complications in the plans; the Government and the lo...

Moglonemby Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 22 May 1885
Mogeonembyn Jottinrs. BY " INCOG." All other subjects are swallowedup just now by the serious case of ipfanticido in our midst. These cases appear bad when we read of them from time to time in the various newspapers, but when a case of the kind happens immediately amongst us, it seems far more terrible than when the personsimplicatedare perfectstrangers. Much sympathy is felt for the unfortunate girl, for, I believe, she has not yet at tained her majority... It is scarcely to be wondered at, that so much pity is felt for her, seeing that she has not had the train ing or companionship of a mother or a sister since she was some seven or eight years of age; and,furtler,it isgenorallysup posed that she not exactly couipos memtis. At any rate she is sometimes peculiar in her manner. This, hbwever, may be the result of her seclusion from society ; 'for I am given to understand that she has never been in the habit of mixing with her neighbours. Those who knew her say she seemed always pecu...

European News. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 22 May 1885
European News. Diplomatic negotiations which are proceeding between Great Britain and Italy tend to show that the future of the Soudan is to be entrusted to Italy. It is proposed that Italian troops shall occupy Suakin, and they have received orders to hold themselves in readiness for active service. Last December news -was received th it a coinmmercial treaty hlad been" arranged between Great Britain and Spain.
