A Silver Skull. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 30 October 1885

A fIlver Mkull. W?hen Munchausen in one of his hap piest moods told the story of the man with the silver skull, the jovial baron little thought that more than a century after he had departed ttiis.world of miracles his old solaier would find a match in the far west. It is stated that Charles S. Kings ley, . of Mansfield, Pennsylvania, who fought in the Secession war, received a wound in the head which could only be closed by means of silver plates. The man's life was saved by this process, but his reason was gone, and for twenty years he was in a vWashington asylum. A few months ago, on one of the lilates being readjusted,:Kingsley suddenly recovered his reason, and is now enjoying an accum ulated pension of 20,000dol.; He is said to remember nothing after. the battle, in whidci he was wounded.till. the moment when hiis reason was restored. If.this story may. be believed; then truth, indeed, has been proved to be stranger than even Munchausen's fictions -

Balmattum. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 30 October 1885

BlnsI? ittaiim. (FROM. OUR CORRESP'ONDENT.) The dry weather is causing no little un easiness amongst the farmers and graziers, both the grass and crops are beginning to show the want of moisture, especially the late sown; a downfall of rain would be very acceptable at the present time, and perhaps be the means of checking what farmers fear, "ta-keall," which has made its appearance, and is making rapid strides both in wheat and oats. Some of the farmers here have deter miiled to go in for a high class of stock. Whether, the show has stirred then up remains to be proved. I had the pleasure the other day of inspecting some very fine specimens of shorthorns, recently pur chased by Messrs WAadeson and Gall, at the Model Farm annual sale, for which a very high figure was paid; and those gentlenien deserve to be complimented in their venture for introducing such a high breed of cattle, which, I believe carry high pedigrees; both sire and dam are from tle Imost noted breeders of the day.

Marraweeney. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 30 October 1885

-Vtarrawreeney'. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. I am happy to inform your readers that our respected head teacher (Miss Bain) has returned, and, after an absence of five weeks; has the school in full work. Tile attendance, I believe, is not large, many of the children not having recovered from the effects of the epidemic, which was very prevalent in this district. This being the first show of the Euroa Agricultural Society, I hope that any little irregularities will be overlooked, and each and all try and make the show a success. I trust that the decisimrs of the judges.vill give satisfaction. AAt any rate I aim sure they will decide according to their knowledge. I hope, however, they will not he guilty of such a stupid blunder as some of the judges at the late Ballarat show who (according to the Ballrals Courier. 17th Oct) in the class for a 12 months' old boar actually gave the prize to a show piig. The weather is just suitable for the crops in this district, which are looking very w...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. MELBOURNE, Thursday night. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 30 October 1885

LATEST TELEGRAMS. BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPA. (raroex OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) SMELROURnNE, Thursday night. About one o'clock this morning the Carlton police arrested five members of a family named Roper. The mother, daughter, and three sons were suddenly taken with a fit of madness. About mid night the neighbours were roused by unearthly screams and confusion in the Ropers' residence, the members of the famiyl running through the rooms, alternately praying and screaming. The furniture was knocked about, and -articles of food scattered about the floor. The police had a long struggle with the unfortunates before they were finally secured. It appears to be :a .form of religious mania, with which they have been seized. but it is extraordinary that the whole family -hould be affectedat once. The daugh aer previously made some pretensions of being a medium. The affair has -created a profound sensation. Great numbers of visitors are arrir ing for the V.11.0 meeting, which com mnences tomorrow.,...

?IarranIlounI. (FROM TIHE CHRONICLE COlRRMES'ONDET.) A very successful concert ii" aid of the prize fund was given in State school No. 2055, Karranlounss, on Friday. In the course of the evening the following songs, etc., were successfully rendered, and should I not particularly mention every piece, it is simply because, where every thing was good, it would be invidious to particularise. The opening overture, by Miss O'Sullivan was very splendidly played. It was a fantasia on Irish airs entitled " Erin," and it seemed to cheer the hear of all present. "Not too luuch mothler and "To see if I liked butter," were given by Mr Stewart with his usual fervour and good humor. Very much pleasire wvas given by Miss W ilson, of Kialla West,who sang that beautiful song. " Laddie." I hope the kind reception giveL Miss Wilson will show her that she pissesses a talent which should not be hidden, and a mlore frequent appearance wbuld be very welcome.

"Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy Country's, Thy God's, and Truth's." FRIDAY, 30th OCTOBER, 1885. Tim Euroa Agricultural Society'sshow, which takes place to-day, is another milestone marking the progress of the town and district, and we may well look back on the past with feelings of pleasure and profit. It is now scarcely six years since the termation of the shire by its severance from that of Benalla, and many of the residents have a vivid recollection of the stirring scenes which followed that event. The shire was formally proclaimed on the 3rd November, 1879, and n council was formed immediately afterwards, in whose charge the infant municipality was placed. These gentlemen, at the outset of their administration, had to contend with numerous difficulties, both within and without their shire boun daries, and manfully they struggled 'gainst a phalanx of adverse circutm stances until success crowned their efforts. The redoubtable Hugh M'Guin ness, whose name in those days was...
