"Let all the Murs thou ains'st at be thy Col?trty's, Thy God's, and Truth's.".-•• MONI)DY, ad l OVEMBEI:, 1885. SPECIAL 110W E IDITI10, EUROA AGRICULTURAL & PASTORAL SOCIETY. FIRST SPRING EXHIBITION. ::In I ayof the present year, the que tion of an Agricultural and Pastbial Society for the Shire of Euroa was withdrawn from the realms of ideality, in which it .had long held a fugitive embryonic existence, and was accorded " a local habitation and a name." For years its inception was regarded as a desideratum by the more advanced settlers, who recognised the necessity for the proper representation of the farming asud grazing capabilities of the district. The difliculty of focussing public opinion, however, exercised a deterrent influence, and it was not until the establishment of a local newspaper that the community of sentiment in all parts of the shire was indubitably evinced. After that event, the evolution of the society. took place in an ac celerated, intensified form, ma...

ON THE GROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 2 November 1885

ON THE GROUND. Euroa was truly en fite--a day I in the annals of the rising township to t be marked with the very Whitest of stones, for on that day the new-born | Euroa Agricultural Society held its first show. For months past .the energies of the leading men both in town and in thaqieQ try, ~aviO?len strained, to make this?-the opening efforts a suc cess,' witlll the pleasing and gratifying result of the display of last Friday. The attention received by the show of hand some cups which during the last few weeks has made the window of MIr Barraclough's emporium "the cynosure of neighbouring eyes," betrays the in terest of the public in the venture of the society, while the large amount of money raised indicates the painstaking exertions of the projectors. The h]ealthy rivalry induced by the friendly contests for the various handsome prizes has had the very best effect in discovering the capabilities of the dis trict, the excellence of its various pro ducts, and the skill and patien...

ON THE ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 2 November 1885

Li ON.THE ROADS. The various roads leading to the town h were the scenes of unwronted activity at an early hour. Froit all directions,and a in every conceivable mode of conveyance visitors arrived. The dwellers of the flats could be traded for a long distance 8 by the lines of dusty mist which marked p their onward progress, and the moun taincers, from the heights of Strath-lii bogie, made a brave show. Hardy, . bronzed yeomen are they, .endued with t a full iieasure "of the courage and 1 enduiance of their Anglo-Saxon pro genitors, who scaled the dizzsy nountain top and wrestled with Nature in her wildest and most unpromising battle fields.

Arcadia Mems. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 November 1885

Areasla Me scm . (wFtow oUR ow? CoRRESPONDENT.) The members of the Church of England held their annual tea meeting, in their church at Arcadia, on Wednesday evening, the 20th ult. There was alarge attendance, and justice done to the good things pro vided by Mesdames Brown, Pethybridge, and others, the tables being several times filled. After the tea, the tables were cleared for the meeting, which passed off well, andwould doubtless have been better had a few more speakers ben present, for, as it was, the singers were kept busy through want of variation of the pro granune. The chair was taken by the Rev. Mr Woods, who apologised for the absence of several gentlemen, who were unavoidably absent, and who had intended taking a part in the proceedings. The first itesm on the programme was a hymn, " Hold the Fort," by the choir, Mrs White playing the acconupaniment on the organ. After a brief address from the chairman, the choir sang an anthem, which was followed by a solo by Mr Camp bell...

Moglonemby Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 November 1885

lMo -lonenb`ly Jottings. By "INCOG." Now that the first show of the Euroa Agricultural and Pastoral Society is over, I suppose we cannot do better than con gratulate ourselves. -I speakin the plural -on the success of the enterprise. The working metmbers of the commnittee de- 1 serve great prise for the effective manner 1 in which everything-for a first effort was carried out, and I feel assured that the public fully appreciate their indomit able zeal in bringing to maturity such a vast undertaking in the short space of time at their disposal. Another grand illustration of the old "saws"-" Where there's a will there's a way," and " Union is' strength." Not the least estimable feature of the committee was their readi ness to accept hints or suggestions upon matters calculated to add to the success of the Society, and perhaps -the few errors that were fallen into would not have hap pened if more of the farmers and outside public had taken an active part in making preparatory arrangeme...

Ourselves, as others see us. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 November 1885

Ourselves, as others see us. A traveller who has just returned from a first visit to Australia has published in the columns of the Saturday Review some of his observations at the antipodes, and very curious they will be considered by the inhabitants of that " City of One Generation"-Melbourne; whose astonish ing progress is his theme. Referring to the "peculiarities" which he believes must strike any casual visitor to the Queen City of the South, and which cer tainly struck him, lie remarks, "To him there is enough that itpresses or sur prises him in'the hluf-foreign, half-English appearance of the place, in the magli ficence of its public buildings, in the multitude of its public parks, in the strange forms and colours of its trees and flowers, and, not least, in the modifications which English habits of thought and speech have undergone in their transporta tion -to the antipodes.

Cullp Day "Little Games." All the gamblers arrested at the race course on Cup day were brought before Mr Call, P.M., and a bench of justices, at the City Police-court on the 4th, and a. motley crew they were. Henry Pritchard was playing the envelope game, so famous on account of none but the principal con federates getting envelopes containing numbers corresponding with winning numbers, and was fined £5-, or two' weeks' imprisonment. Robert Scott was selling tickets for a lottery on the "flat,"and was fined 40s. William West was pushing the envelope trick,, and was fined £5. Daniel WVmter, a young fellow who only a few days ago was, committed for trial on a charge of breaking into the Jewish Syna gogue, Bourke street, but liberated on bail, was manipulating a "spinning jenny," and was fined 40s.

Miepoll and Branjee Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 November 1885

IY OLIVER DAY. ŽNothing of considerable importance has transpired since my last notes. What night have terminated in some thing fatal, hlappeneld to a young man named W. Glasheen, a resident of this locality. It appears that he was driving a horse and dray last Saturday, to a neigl houring house, and, having a cask in the dray, the wheel went into a rut, and the consequence was that the cask made a loud rumbling noise, causing the horse to start. He had not gone far, when the dray collided with a stump, thlrowring the young man out on his back. The horse went clear out of the dray. breaking the harness.. Nothing serious happened other than the man getting a severe shak ing. A young lady in this district wants to know which of the three parishes, viz: Miepoll, K trramomus, or Tanlcough, possesses the tallest young man ? Well, inot being aquainted with many people in the two lastrnamled parishes, I could not answer the question ; but I daresay your Karramomus correspondent could suppl...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 November 1885

TO THE EDITOR. Sr,- "Presbyterian" seems to be rather surprised that, after the committee of the Karramomus Presbyterian Church had held their half-yearly meeting, they had found that the financial condition of the church was in a sound state. I sup pose. if the balance had been on the other side of the ledger, it would have been more to his liking. He states that the committee have been considering the advisability of removing the church to a site farther north, to enable them to more easily collect the minister's stipend. I would inform "Presbyterian" that the committee's principal object in moving the church is that, as some of the Presby terians in the south or more immediate vicinity of the church have withdrawn their support (for reasons best known to themselves), but would like to keep it where it is simply, I believe, tolook at anl allow the people to support it. Under these circumstances, the committee, after mature consideration, decided to remove it to a site where it wou...

Euroa Agricultural and Pastoral Society. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 November 1885

Euroa Agricultural and   Pastoral Society, A meeting of the sub-committees was held in the Euroa Public Hall, yesterday afternoon, Mr M McKenna, J.P., presiding. There were present Messrs Pleasents, Slee, Walsh, Garrett, and Sutherland. Cor' respondence was received from Mr Henry Harrington, Miepoll, to the effect that no notice had been taken of his special exhibit of a four-toothed ram. On an examination of the books it was seen that the animal had been entered in the sheep class, section 10, along with seven or eight others, and the prizes had been duly awarded in that section, Mr Harrington's exhibit not being among the   prize takers. The secretary was instructed to notify that gentleman to this effect. Mr Ick, who was present, asked if any award had been made.by the judges for a grass fed ewe exhibited by him. As the entry was an "extra," Mr Ick was in formed that the amount of prize would be determined by the committee. A letter was received from Mr ...

SI,--I think it my duty to insert the following paragraph in your valuable paper, as an exhibitor at the late Euroa Agricul tural Show of Friday, 30th inst, and as I have attended shows of a similar nature throughout the North-Eastern district, I never as yet saw a show carried out under such careless management ; I mean in the way of exhibits that could be made use of by the public, such as cordials, bread, cheese, butter, and so forth. It appeared nothing more to mim than a common lun cheon booth, and I think many more were of the same opinion as myself. About three o'clock I went to tlhe place set apart for those exhibits, and I did not care to venture in for the reason spoken of ; nor did I then know that it was a place for exhibits, until I was acquainted of it by a friend of umine, for there they were, eating the bread and cheese, and drinking the cor...
