GUNDOWRING. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 8 April 1887

G UNDO WRING. - (rnoM oUa OWN cORRESPONDENT.) The whirr of the thresher has finally ceased for the year in our secluded hamlet and-still we live. Now don't allow the risible muscles of your expressive physiog nomy to goet ino pla' becaus9" I say " still we live," Mr Editor; for I was seriously afraid that, before that thresher had doe parted, some of our farmers would, as Sir Boyle Rocho would put it. be able only to say, "We have ceased to live." You will ask, " Why?" Why, because the valuable bit of machinery referred to threshed the corn about as quickly as a good upstanding horse, licensed to carry a fair inside cargo, could eatjit. .Not only that, either: but about every third day was wet, and the luckless householder whose stacks were in hand had the honor of maintaining the "staff" of the machine in idleness while Jupiter Pluvies held sway. Many of the stacks were known to be wet-onoat least had actually caught fire; but several of the farmers, I am glad In learn, were agreea...

THE BRAGWELL PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 8 April 1887

THE BRAG WELL PAPERS. 'Iwnt to that wedding I spoke of in my last; no did Mrs B., so did Miss B. the elder, and so did some two hundred other gdests,' although the'rain poured down with dogged persistency all day. I arrived at the scene of action with my Sundayc cl6thd fairly soaked, which gave Mrs B. great concern, for h she Omed mpro concerned about the clothes than about the mdn "ho shivdrel inside of them.: Well, we got to a warm fire. "dried our things," and then looked around us. The bride was charming, the bridesmaid, arrayed in pink and white and orange blossoms, was just delicious. (Of course I' kept these opinions to my. self.) The bridegroom looked, wells just as I looked once upon a time, happy and eimbarrassed. 'The wedding breakfast'wsas superb. What I ate, and how much of it, I cannot toll, and I should probably have gone on assimilating the good things to my physical system for some considerable time if I had not been interrupted with a warning nudge from the partner...

PETTY NUISANCES. TO THE EDITOR OF TIlE SENTINEL. Smn,-Is it possible that an underground collar which ,is ?covered in is a ýpiblic nubiance ? The insledtor oS nuisanoes has to-day given moe , writtei notiO to cleanii out a cellar'u iler my house. While he is vigilant enough in this matter, he allows cattle to stray through the streets all night. Is this fair? Again, umbrella stands are, contrary to the bye-laws, allowed to obstruct the footpaths. It is a remarkable fact that the astute officer al lows cattle and horses to camp in the streets. If this nuisance is tolerated, andt collars are to be closed, what will the publicans do with their hoer ? They will surely have to drink it themselves. Yours, &o., TE.?ANT. April 5.

Wodonga & Towong Sentinel. Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallen!—MILTON. FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 1887. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 8 April 1887

Awake ! Arise I Or be for ever fallen ! --MILTON. FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 1887. EASTeR time comes round again, and :brings with it its train of joys' and amusements in grateful commemora tion of that great day over 1800 years ago when.the grim tyrajet Death was first wrestled with successfulljl and do prived of the best part of his kingdom. In English-speaking countries Easter time is a favorite one. Its type of joy is different from the Christmas type, the same as delight at a birth is diflb rent from the joy of a recovery from death, but the mode of showing it is much the anme. Some cynics have said that Christieas and 'Easte-' times are the golden ages of gastronomy, with, we fear,, a considerable quantum of truth leaveiing the cynicism. For then it is that the hardworker and hardfarer of the preceding months methodically lays down his pick or his pen, systematically unloosens the long taut belt, and transports himself for hours in fancy to the joys of that delightful' lotus-region wher...

CONCERT AT TALLANGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 8 April 1887

CONCERT AT TALLANGATTA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A concert in aid of the building fund of the Presbyterian Church, to be erected at Tallangatta, came off in the court-house on Wednesday, the 30th ultimo, and although the weather was about as bad as it could be for suoh a gathering, it was a great success, the room being crowded. The chair was occupied by Mr Dixie, who briefly stated the object for which it was given. The pro- gramme was rather prolonged by repeated encores. The first part of the programme was opened with a pianoforte duet, "Pas Redoubta,".by the Misses Paton, who ac- quitted themselves admirably, this being the first time they ever appeared in public. Miss Bartlett then sang "Oh sing to me those old Scotch songs ' with great effect, and, being encored, gave ~'Romany Rye." A song, "Swiss nlghtingale," by Mr L. Schenkel, was well received, as was a song, "She wore a wreath of roses," sweetly sung by Miss Drake. Next followed a pianoforto solo, " Moonlight on the ...

H-le started at rather a hard Iaco, and got to within half a mile of Frser's, when his horse must have come down with him. His face was down wards, and it appeared as if hle had boeen dragged a bit.

OUR B3ETHANGA CORRESPON DENT IN. REPLY.' ;, i TO TIIHE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL., .

His rod rag appears at first to be " shed," a little word too, but red turns to scarlet soon after.

"ANOTHER INJUSTICE TO IRELAND." TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 15 April 1887

"ANOTHER INJUSTICE TO IRE. LAND." TO TIE EDITOR OF TIlE RENTINP.L. SIR,-I noticed, with no little pain, that the procession of IrislhAustralion children on Easter Monday was headed, not by an Irishman, but by a German, wearing a green sash. A jackdaw in peacock's feathers was certainly not more ridiculous or more absurd than this anomaly. I am one of those who consider one nationality as good as another; bat, while doing so, I maintanl that the conduct of an outsider in usurping the regalia peculiar to another country is, politely speaking, a donwnright pieco of presumnption, and I present him with my unmitigated contempt accordingly. If the shades of O'Connell or Davis could have looked down, on the eight, how they would have sttnd nghant I I blush for my country if there was no son of the sell to he folund to nct as drumemajor. Was there no Irlshman fit to be placed sat the head of the procossion ? Or, to bring it nearer home, why was Mr P. O'Connor, as worthy a represeo. tative o...
