'14LObX3i]E3 IBtY JOTTIXGM "BY INCOG" I don't know what it indicates, but there is absolutely nothing to record this week. I have even taxed my iiagina tion, and though it may perhaps be thought by sonme persons to be somewhat elastic, yet I must confess that it refuses to he nup as 1 s1%llsiiwhe would say; I inm afraid that your correspon dielbt will be necessitated to "jack up". Ere another week has ruln, perhaps some stirriiig event worth chronicling may lhave happoilbd. Let us hope so at all events, It wouild e well for all ratepayers to. see that their rates are paid in time for hiLving their: names on the rolls for next years election, there is nothing liki tak inm time by the forelock in these matters nt 1past experience. will bear me out.'

MIEPOLL. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 12 September 1884

1 IIEPIOLL. The weathor continues very dry, and the general cry is for " more rain." Some of the farmers started fallowing, but had to suspend operations on account of the dry state of the ground. The much decided " take-all" has appeared among the crops in this district and is spreading fast, especially in the wheat crops, the main root having decayed away. As far as any sport is concerned, we Miepoll folks are all behind the times, there being neither cricket or any other seasonable pastime whereby a Saturday afternoon can be pleasantly wiled away. Most of the young men out here work all the week through, and thie soonerarrange ments canl be muule for to have half-a-day set apart for recreations, the better. Now that tile cricket season is approaching I would suggest that the young men of this locality form a cricket club. The site for the local State School has been survey6d, and we are anxiously wait ing for the lililding to be commenced. There is a " Forest Devil" working on a ...
