CORRESPONDENCE. EUROA HORSE PARADE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 7 August 1885

I would draw attention to tihe followihg facts :-Thce Euroa Parade has always been held on a sale day, and never ater thaita the 14th. The _ convenicnce of the country people is studied by having the parade on that day,' as they kill two hirds with one stone-namely, see the horses and and do their business at the yards as well.
