The concert inaugurated by fMrs 13rard manand Miss l)wyer, under the auspices of "The icelbounrie Releif Fund," was held at the local Mechanics' Hall on Thursday evening. The attendance was very large, the sitting accommodation being comnpletelyv'taken up. Although deprived of the bright rays of a ninon; the night was-very a greea'ile indeed. The hall was beautifully lighted and the sight that met theli eye on cntering was picturesque in thel extreme. The ladies looked bright and happy, wearing costumes to suit the occasion, while the male portion of the human biped were attirel according to the suitableness of Sthe weither.

He further suggested that it would be expedient to appoint a ranger at a small remuneration to yard the straying animals,. find owners, and prosecute theum;T and councillors generally concurred with him and spoke in extreme condemnation of the cattle nuisance.

THE POWER OF MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News — 27 August 1892

THE POWER OF MUSIC. Lnv D. . a.] " Music, oh i how faint, how weak Language fades hefote thy spell; Why should feeling ever speak, When thou can'st breathe her soul so well."-Moore. So much has. been said and written anent the power `of music, and its in fluence for good over things human, that I pause for a ne'w line on which to work. " Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast," is indeed a familiar quotation; and how true it is ! Where is the being whosa inmost soul is not stirred when listening to the strains of sweet music .? Shakespeare tells us in those well-known lines that "The man rrho hath not music in him or is not moved by cadence of swreot sounds, is fit foitr troue raitagems; and upois, Ict no such man be trusted." I do re-echo his noble sentiment and the man who is not sus- -ceptiblo to the potent charm of, sweet music, acid who is not moved, is one whom I should always mistrust. Mayhap many of my readers will have witnessed the entrancing spello music exercises ...

The very succesrful concert which was held in' the Meclianics' Institute on last Thursday, in aid of the Melbourne Relief Fund has, I am told, realised a very handsome sum, and will, as soon as convenient, be forwarded to Melbourne. The.- result. reflects great credit on the generosity of the people of Saubury and neighbourhood. With reference to the above charitable event it is my pleasing duty to bestow a dtu us ed of praise on the good ladies who, interested themselves s, much in the good cause, and through whose untiring efforts, the great success of the concert is due. These ladies are Mrs Boardrman and Miss [)wyer. I am well aware, those ladies wouldh much prefer that their names shou!d be kept private, for it was not for the sake of any no toriety that attaches even to charitable undertakings that influenced them ...

THE MAN IN THE STREET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News — 3 September 1892

THE MAN IN THE STREET. [BY Ioszo.] I have arrived in the- streets and am pleased to notice the. improvements wrought here during the past few months, and the manner in which the place, as a whole, has progressed. Sunbury is -a picturesque township, and will, in the near future, develop into a large town. It has its backbone with the farming community all around. and its rich, smiling, cultivated fields. The new asylum works are going on rapidly, em ploying a large number of men, who cir culate their wages freely. Taking a cursory glance about it indicates prosperity to the right of us-prosperity to the left of us-and in fact-prosperity all around us. Coming to the reparation of the roads in the portion of the Bulla Shire, by the way, our irrepressible Cr Starkie deserves a word of praise. During his reign at the council table, he has stood up and fought like unto a lion bearded in its den for their proper and trafficable construction. He has had a lot to contend with, and had to tax...

Artillery, Miss Dwyer, Mr T. Wood, Mrs Eord, Mrs Meade, Mr S. Campbell, Corcoran, Cockran & Co, Mr Svnnot, Mr P. Burns, Bubeck, Misses Struthers and Bonzley. The weather for the past week has been simply delightful. Indeed were it not fur the farmer, who still wants water badly, we should be content with such "Mists as kept Eden green, Before the useful trouble of the rain." For the mouth of August there have been 18 days during which Jupiter Plu vius has been in the ascendant, and the thermometer has varied from (hi deg. to 30 deg. Fah. But as only 124 point;. of rain fell altogetther, making the last four months total just above 4 inches, it is evident that the outlook is gloomy unless counteracted by a `" dropping pring."--So mote it be.

BULLA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News — 3 September 1892

BULLA. .CFROM OUR OWN. CORRESPO.¶DENT.] The crops around here are looking fairly well considering they are heavily handicapped by want of more pluvial weather. It is hoped that rain will be granted us ere long. The annual municipal election is the chief topic of conversation in our. quite little village. Little knots of people may be seen exchanging ideas on the matter and telling one another what will be done. Still they do not seem to comprehendl what Cr Loeman has done by refusing to act as returning officer. There is no doubt that he is .knocked back on to the ropes and he will have a deal of hitting out from the shoulder to force an opening to extricate himself, that is, of course, if council take the affair up with the spirit they should. This however, is very doubtfal and no doubt as the saying is, the thing is a foregone conclusion. It is rumored around here council will appaint a polling day in about three or four week's time.
