An Echo from the Hills. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 28 August 1885
An Edeho from the Juiom. [rOFiM OUr OWS CORRSPONDENT. Here I have been sitting for the last isalf-hour, wondering what I sat down for. I thought I had a let to writeiaboat, but,. alas ! my ideas have flown with the first rising breeze. Everything appears to be at a standstill, and at last people have found time to be ill. Nearly everyone is now laid up, or has been laid up, with what is commonly known as the "dog disease," pleuro, or influenza. Whatever it may be, it.sticks to its victims with a leech-like tenacity, and you have no more chance of'getting rid of it before it likes than the fellow in the story had of dislodging the "Old Man' of the Mountains" from his saddle. Many: who were never before known to hbeill for a day in their lives have succumbed to the new disease. They have defied small-pox, scarlet fever, cholera morbus, and a Whole range of varying epidemics - . they were thought to be as tough as a Euroa steak; but they were as the weakest of. little children before t...

GOLD AT GOWANGARDIE. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 4 September 1885
GOLD AT GOWANGARDIDE. The interest attaching to the prospec tivo discovery of gold inl the district has. centred attention on several of the old ,i;?l.ahar.L:.i.dlisuran?trags, which werst sunk' meiny years ago, anedri ecords of which exist only in the memories of the oldest inhabitants. A determined attempt was ifhde, years ago; to develop a reef the other side of Violet Town towards Cowan gardie ; machinery was erected .and a crushing plant, which speaks volumes for the faith of the then pirouoters of the eou ture in the payable character of the lode. In consequence:of.a series of Inischances, including the floodin.g of the mine, the company was ultimately wound up, witl - out a fair trial of the gold-bearingqu liti-s of the stone being made. The - adlvent of 11[r Vawdrey, who has had many years' practical experience in son~ of the most important mines in the colony, ha:s induced some gentlemen to turni their attention to the old workings. During the weoe, Messrs Gi.attbu, Vawdrey...

Arcadia Mems. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 4 September 1885
Arcasdia iIemM. (FRO oU011 OWN CORRESrPOxNDEN.) Since my last notes of a few weeks ago, a decided clhange for the better hlst taken place in our neighbourhood, and crops of all kinds are now making good headway. The oats and barley, which were hitherto handicapped by the severe frost, are now regaining their natural colour, and putting on a spurt. iThe grass is makiug an effort to become conspieous, and cattle and borszs are beginning to cast their winter coats, and, like our respected clothiers, are stocktal'ing for the summner. The orchard trees are all clothed in white and red, according to their respective species, and the pleturesque windings of the river Coltiburn in our innmediate vicinity is beaumtifully or'namented by the mnimnsa and ,lother nacmie, ers of the evergreens, in full bloom, which plainly indicates that the filna struggle between winter an:d spring has terminated ii favour of the latter.

DY "OLIVE[t DAY." For some time past, the weather has been beautifully line, and we- were favoured with a few nice showers, which fell at intervals during last Sunday, and will do a vast amount of good to the crops (Which are looking very wellin this locality) -and likewise to vegetation of all sorts.

Tlhe usual quarterly, entertainment iri. connection with the Eurom Mutual Ihu provenment Association .-was held in tlhe Temperance Hall on Monday last. At the hour of opening, a large number had assembled in front of the hall, andl -within a few minutes seating accommoda tion was at a premium. Thu gentlemen gallantly resigned their comfortable posi' tions in favor of the ladies, and either stood at the rear of the hall or were entirely crowded out, many being thus disappoionted of their evening's enjoy= imout. The Rev. S. Scholes, president of the association, presided, and was sup ported by thevice-presidentand treasurer, IThe performance of a pianoforte duet by the Misses Hart pleasantly cosmmenced 1 the programme, and this musiteal over ture, if taken as an indiettiolt of the talent to follow, must indeed have b.en regarded as a singularly ha:ppy aug:lry. s The president, in a characteristic address, - kept his hearers highly amused for some nminutes, and sandwiceld between his h...
