FREE METHODIST CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 23 October 1885
FREE METHODISTI CHURCH. The "invariable" in connection with the anniversary of the United Free Methodist Church, Violet Town, camle off on Monday last, with a'gratifyinig measure of success. The tea was given by the ladies of the congregation, and was one of the finest, in point of quality of provision, and attendance of visitors, ever held in Violet Town. The after meeting was addressed by the Revs Hill, Provan, Gilesnan, and lease. The choir rendered selections of sacred music throughout the evening, and there can be but little doubt that the object of the effort, namely, to raise £10 interest on the existing debt, will be accomplished.

Buroa Wesleyan Church. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 23 October 1885
Uuroa Vcsleyatn Church. "Tinme. writes no wrinkle on .thine azure brow,' says Lord Byron in his sub lime apostrophe to the ocean, and in some degree the quotation is applicable to the celebration of church anniversaries. Tea and public meetings are as inuch the attribute of the one, as unchangeability is of the other. WhIy this is so, is perhaps ope) to debate, but there can be no doubt that clhurchmen base their calculations on a profound study and experience of the ,genus fIwne, and find that the inscrutable comnection between the stomach, pocket, and head is an enduring and potential reality. These timne-honored springs of Ihulan action were again tapped at the Tempernice Hall, Euroa, on Wednesday evening last by the workers in connection with the above church, resulting in a very successful " feast and flow." Nothing was lacking to charm the eye or stimulate the appetite, and under these favorable con ditions a large party sat down to the loaded tables, which were pre:,ided over...
Balmattum. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 23 October 1885
Jlslnlllttflll. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) On thie invitation of Mr and Mrs Stewart and family, (Brookville) about 25 couples assembled at their house last Wednesday week, all the young folks of the neighborhood being present to do justice (or injustice I hardly know which) to their host's floors in the shape of trip ping the light fantastic,"and a more agree able gathering of young people would be difficult to find, all faces beaming with smiles; and the peals of merry laughter that rang round the room, indicated that they had met for. a night's enjoyment. Dancing commlenced at 7 o'clock, and wias kept up with spirit till midnight, when an adjournmnent was made for refreshments, and if the floors were punished, the tables were likewise doomed to the. same fate. The attention bestowed on the guests should conmandl , and I am sure it did, the sincerest thanks of all present. On resuming dancing, a rather novel idea was proposed by 3ir Stewart, namely, the fair sex to choose their ...

"Let all the ends thou aiin'st at be thy' Codutry's, .Thy God's, .and Truth's." FRI)DAY. 23rd 00TOBER, 18S5. TnE formal classification of the ballot. ages will finally determine the result of the recent elections in France, and the political party by which that pros-. perous but unhappy State is to be ruled in the immediate future. By the returns of the popular elections held on the first Sunday'in 'the pr?~ient moiilh, 'it alipears that the Opportunists under Mi" Jules Ferry have scored a trimiinph over the Radicals led by Mr Clemen ceau ; but by the electoral system known *as scrutin de lisle, now adopted for the first time, it is quite possible that 'the original returns may be so'd'isarranged by the principle of proportionalismn at the scrutiny, as to alter the relative 'positions in. which the extreme wings ,of the Chamber of Deputies stand toward each other. England and France ,have been simultaneously engaged in the work of electoral reform, and while the professed object of ...

" Too late, too late, ye cannot enter now," will be the dismal greeting to dilatory cihibitors at the forthcoming show; who let to-day pass without inter viewing the secretary. " Shakspeare's a wonderful man," said Mrs Gumnuudge, laying down her book, " He says - 'Enter Hamlet and Horatio'; but I'll content myself and only enter scones and hone-mdle bread at the show. &lt;In consequence of the Prince of Wales' Birthday falling on a Wednesday, Messrs Slee, Ogilby and Co.'s Violet Town sale, which would otherwise have fallen on that day, has been postponed until the Friday following (the 11th).

De-centralization. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 30 October 1885
De-centralization. Centralization, with all its attendant evils, once again challenges attention throughout the colony. It is a very old grievance, and it may be safely pre dicted that the evil will never be entirely stamped out. By energetic action itmajr.he mitigated;,howeverand that must be done. So hydra-headed is the monster that the difficulty is where to begin. There is the railway grievance, passengers being carried on the Metroplitan suburban lines at one third the fares charged within the same radius of any other town in the colony. Then there is the railway workshop grievance. A quarter of a million is freely voted for new workihoips near Williamstown, while founidries and carriage-building factories in other places, where a good deal of Govern mlent work was at one time done, are iompatatively unemployed.. Then the trains. called "farmers' excursion trains," periodically, as one journal forcibly phrased it, " tear out the very entrails," of country towns, and the injury ...
