No Title [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 4 February 1887

It seems Yackandandah is likely to   lose Mr Heron and the hand auger which has already done such good work down   the creek. The location of these borers is now in the hands of the prospecting boards, and Yack. failed to apply for the use of one in time. The auger being there, and doing so well, both practically     and auriferously, the good folks didn't   apply for the boon they thought they possessed.

ANOTHER BATHING FATALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 4 February 1887

ANOTHER BATHING FATALITY.     Wodonga was thrown into a state of ex- citement on Saturday evening last be a report that a man had been drowned in the lagoon. The news uphappily proved too true. It appears that the unfortunate man, who was a teamster from Prospect, N.S.W.,   had gone in for a swim and, swimming out- side the post which mark the boundaries of safety, became entangled in the dense growth of weeds, and before assistance could be rendered was drowned. THE ENQUIRY   A magisterial enquiry was held on Sunday morning before Mr W. Huon, J.P. when the following facts were elecited:- Donald Elder deposed that he was a stone mason. He had viewed the body,   which he recognised as that of his late mate's whom he had known for about ten days.. Dbeeased, had charge of two drays and horses. Was in his company about six o'clock. did not see deceased enter the water, but saw him swimming past the platform on his back. Sa...

THE WODONGA TO TALLANGATTA RAILWAY. ACCEPTANCE OF THE TENDER. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 4 February 1887

THE WODONGA TO TALLAN- GATTA RAILWAY. ACCEPTANCE OF THE TENDER. The most important of the little batch   of tenders dealt with on Monday last by the Railway Department were those sent in for the construction of 14 miles of the railway line from Wodonga to Tallangatta, in the Mitta Mitta Valley. This line, although short, is yet important, as being the initial section of a railway that when pushed in among the foothills along north eastern Victorian affluents of the Murray will tap a rich but little known district, remarks the Herald. Tallangatta is situated in one of the quaint old world valleys for which this seldom visited corner of the colony is noted, about 24 miles from Wodonga, but the present line stops 10 miles short of the proposed terminus, the end of the present contract being in a roadside paddock near a place locally known as Huon's Lane, 14 miles from Wodonga. The work will not be a heavy one, there being altogether only about 1,300,000 cubic yards of eart...

Having explained the object of the 'concert, Mir Sydor referred to the filiancial position of the Athenmumn,.which, he said was £150 in debt, and, as the cost of its nminten ance was £50 annually, it was found necessary to suppliient the revonuge de rived from subscriptions by a concert now. and then. .Iue hopeid, however, that the claims of the institute would be better recognised in the. futute, and that in a short time the Atheonmum would be-in such a prosperous condition that any appeal for public support would boe un necessary.

HONESTY REWARDED. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 11 February 1887

HONESTY REWARDEU. TO TIIE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL, SIm,--I your issue of last week a letter appears, signed "Cob Webb." The effusion referred to was evidently in tended to damnag the 'roputation of a gentleman who, by his mannl;, courteous, habits, has gained the respect of every person having business transactions with him. It would be interesting to your readers to know the busilless relations that existed betwoen "Cob Woebb" and the gentleman hlie endeavonrs to vilify. "Cob Webb" states that tihe gentleman "lost his equilibrium, his horse and saddle, with LO0 in a valise." This, I consider, is a cowardly refleetion on a deserving and most popular young gentleman. The eflfusion only could emanate from a person irretrievably lost to truth and deconcy. In justice to innocence, I request the insertion of this letter in your next issue. -Yours, &o., ANTI-SLANDER,

THE BRAGWELL PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 11 February 1887

TBE B3RAGWELL PAPERS. I have lately been on a brief visit to your charming little town of Wodonga, and, with eyes over alert for the parpose of pickiing tipa subject for a" par., I gazed with sonme interest upon, the town and its environs, together with all local "lions" included therein, and was pleased to note that the terminal township of the North-Eastern railway still holds its own. As a matter of courtesy, my first visit was to the office of this journal, wherein I saw ample proof of the enterlprise of the spirited proprietors, who, in giving a weekly paper to Wodonga, have un doubtedly conferred upon it a boon which the inhabitants cannot but appreciate. (Mem.-The above lines are entirely free from the flavour of that peculiar compound called "soft soap," as that article is not to be had inl this direction, and I purchased none while in Wodonga.) Next, I paid a visit to your Athetnmaum, and was certainly surprised to see such a handsome building erected in honor of "lthe sacr...

DUELLING IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 11 February 1887

DUELLING IN FRANCE. -4----- It is reported that the grave and re verend senators of France are about to bring in another bill for the suppression of duelling, which has lately become quite an epidemic. A law against it already exists, but it is more honoured in the breach than in the observance; in fact, the authorities shut their eyes to it as much as possible. The intention of the said senators is praisoeworthy, but it is not likely to succeed. However much they may condemn the folly of " hostile en counters " pour les beaux yeux of an Aspasia or the crotchets of a political rival, the fact remains that duelling is part and parcel of French life. Moreover, as practised, it is comparatively harmless, and certainly has nothing to do with the decrease of the population which is now exercising the mind of the French econo mists. A " mooting" is arranged; the battle comes off at Vesinet, St. Cloud, or elsewhere; one of the antagonists gets scratched, and the seconds declare "hon our sa...

Even it is not in exhaustible, and nothing but a limit less supply can satisfy the inordinate cravings of the present milkers. The latest development in this respect is the waste of money involved in sending our Chief Secretary and our Minister of Defence to England to help the good things to disappear from magnate ban quet tables and to contribute their share of gas to the buncombe pyrotech nics of that modern fad, Imperial Fede ration.

Sin,-A l?tter appears in a late im pression of your paper abovo the signature of "Paddy Malone," and one paragraph may appear truthful to a great many. As to the day men at Kiewia, I am quite innocent in that matter. I have ahlays been against day labor, and the shire minute book will verify my statement. At my suggestion, the late Mr Charles Smith moved,and I seconded, a resolution,which was carried, "That all day men should be discharged within one' month." They were all discharged, with the exception of those in the Ynckandandalh riding George MI'Cormick and John M'Cullough -who were retained. At the noxcoun cil meeting I questioned the lato engineer as to why he had not carried out the orders of the council, and served all the day labor men alike. In reply, he said he had thought it expedioet to keep heseo men still working. I'at once objected to this course, and stated that if those nmen weor retained,we would have Bourk...
