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

TO TI? EDITOR. SIR,--I could not help smiling when I glanced through the letter signed " Bar One," in your last week's issue. It is a deplorable fact that so many human beings created just a little lower than the angels, should continually wail a dirge over the imaginary decease of the many virtues that comprise "a help mate for him" in the modern Eves. On an area of 3,000,000 miles of Australian soil they cannot find one perfect enough on whom to bestow the honor of broiling their chops or stitching on their shirt buttons. Alas ! I am afraid they closely resemble those bad workmen of ancient renown, who bitterly railed against their tools, when the fault lay all the while within their incomlplete know- ledge of the business they were about. " Bar One" asks, how many girls are there who practice the art of making bread, &c. Such a question borders on the ridiculous as far as our surrounding districts are concerned, unto which the show prize list doth set its sign and seal. H...

The Advertiser "Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy Country's, Thy God's, and Truth's." FRIDAY, 6th NOVEMBER, 1885. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 November 1885

"Let all the ends thou ahn'st at be thy Country's, Thy God's, and Truth's." FRIDA Y, 6th NOVEMBER, 1885. RATEIAYEnRS have good reason to watch the proceedings of their representatives at the next council meeting with more than ordinary .interest. Councilloi' McKenna, one of the " new blood," has signalised his accession to office by firing a £20,000 bomb-shell. That gentleman, at the last meeting, gave notice of motion that he would move the consideration of the advisability or otherwise of floating a loan of £20,000, to be expended on public works within the shire. At this rather sudden an nouncement several councillors moved uneasily in their seats, and some of the more cautious manifested a prudent desire to have it understood that, in consenting to the tabling of the motion, they in no way committed themselves to the proposal. The idea is an ambi tious one2 and requires careful consider ation. The figures which we publishcd in last Friday's issue show our finances to be in an ex...

Sequel to the Castle Creek Tragedy. MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY ON THE BODY OF JOHN McRAE. ACCIDENTAL DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 6 November 1885

seqlel to the Castle Creek. Tragredy, MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY ON THE BODY OF JOHN McRAE; SACuCDENTAi. DEATH. Just three months agq, the public were horror-stricken at the olcurrence of the dreadful murder of Christopher MeRae, son of a selector of that name residing at Castle Creek, and the suicide of tile mur derer. Young McRue's parentsa who were both "going down the hill of life," it will be remembered were completely pros trated by the dreadful end of their son, and for some days were unable to leave their rooms. Since that time they had slowly been recovering from the shock; but, feeling that the associations around their farm were not conducive to happi ness, they determined to proceed to Broad ford, where other members of the family resided. To that end, they entered into arrangements to let the farms and Mr McRae busied himself in carting the furni ture to the Longwood railway station. On Tuesday he was bringing in the last load, when, from the statements of those who found him,...

A MIRACULOUS ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

A MIRACULOUS ESCAPE. On Sunday. evening a young man named Geo. Wedmore, son: of lMr W.edmore, farmer, Tallygaroopna, h?d a very narrow. escape from death. Fro?n the informa tion we haveo been able to gatherit appears that the young fellow left home on Sunday evening, riding a young and spirited mare. About ten o'clock, after his parents had retired to rest, they wore awakened by the neighing of a horse at the panels. Mr Wedmore immediately got up, and on reaching the gate found the mare. without her rider. Whilst standing for a moment in a state of consternation, lie noticed a luan coming along. He immediately hailed hlinm and heard that his son' was lying on the road about five miles off, near the North Shepparton Hotel, in a state of insensibility. ; As may beexpected little time was lost in hastening to the young man's relief, but despite the most strenuous efforts fully two hours elapsed before the object of their search was come upon. He was lying mn the middle of the road, and...

BURNED TO DEATH [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

BURNED TO DEATH Following the news of the foregoing occurrence, and the announcement that an old resident of Shepparton had passed away, the intelligence that a little girl of Mr William Taylor's, Shepparton, had been so severely burned as to be in icmmi nent danger, came with a shock to many residents. It appears tlht about seveni o'clock on Friday morning the child, aged four years and eight months, was playing outside beside a burning log with an elder sister. By some means little Violet's dress became lighted, and the flame was ssoon fed" by the wind. Both children coummenced to scream, and the mother thinking they were but carrying on their pranks, paid no attention. Their con tinued cries, however, brought her out, to see her child one mass of flames. Isstantly she wrapped her darling in a bag, and with the assistance of her brother soon extinguished the fire. An examination showed that the little one was frightfully burnt from her knees up to the waist. Mr Taylor, at work clo...

AVENEL. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

AVEEI2L. O- (FROMC OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The heavy rain which fell on Saturday morning last alotrded great relief from the excessive heit of the earlier part'of the week, but'at preseint it is even more sultry than last week ; and unless there is a further downfall shortly, this season bids fair to be hotter than . usual : it appears however to be very favourable to the crops, the yields of grain promising to be much above the average all over the district. iOn. Tuesday evening a concert by St. Paul's Church choir, and a lecture by the Ven. Archdeacon McCullagh, were held in the Good Templars' Hall, to provide funds for the Sunday school prizes and library, and choir books and music, when a couple of hours were very pleasantly spent in listening to the Arichdeacon's experiences as a new chum in Lancefield district some 20 years ago, and to his des cription of his forlorn position in a bed room under a shingle-covered ioof, through. which the stars could be clearly seen, and' which...

Two good players of the Branjee team not putting in al. appearance made the victory easier. Good form was shown by M. Brennock and M.

T muleueh. FROsM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. lTho'crops in this district are not look ing well, and the takeall has made its ap pearance. The weather at present is very pleasing to the farmers, but the general cry is that the late rains came too late. SAn accident, which might. have proved fatal, occurred to DMr J. Broderick, on Saturday afternoon; while taking a side line off a horse, the animal kicked him on the head. He was carried to the residence 'of his brother, unconscious, from which he recovered in a few hours, the obnly iinjuries received being a broken nose. 'Another accident occurred to a youth named Michael Egan, while attempting to ride a young horse. He was thrown off, receiving severe injuries to his' head and chest, from which he is progressing favor ably. The new bridge over the Honeysuckle is now completed, as well as the much dreaded Garlopp's lane; we cannot do better than congratulate ourselves, or otherwise our council, for both sworks are a'great convenience. to t...

Fortunes by Writing. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

Fortunes by Writin g. It is always pleasing when a great author dies rich. It seems to go some way to restore the average ; but consider for how many generations-I had almost written centuries-authors have died poor and lived poor ! In early times they had two things to contend against-their pub lishers and themselves. Receiving such snall remuneration for their works, it did not seem worth while to save, and their disposition was, no doubt, to spend. In the present century only did they begin to reap any substantial reward from their labours. Byron netted £30,000 or so; Scott would have realised ten times as much but for that passion for laying field to field, aiud house to house, which caused him to enter into commercial speculations which ruined him. Wordsworth, though lie was never a capitalist, was very careful and prudent, and may certainly have been said to be prosperous. IlMacaulay must have made £50,000 by his pen. Dickens lived very handsomely, aind left £90,000 behind him...

lBalmauttum. (sROw oUR owN COiiREsPONDEwir.) " Well done Balmattum ! " Sixteen prizes to your credit-ten first, includ ing three cups ; who can deny the capabilities of the district? It is almost needless for me to point out the prosperity of the place, which is grow ing in wealth year after year, and to predict the future would be no easy task; as a district for farm and dairy produce, fruit, and, last but not least, its fattening qualities, it cannot be excelled. But in lie face of all this we are deprived of railway accommodation; the commissioners consider the outlay of a few hundred pounds would be lost. Are they aware of the importance of place? I think not, or they would not hesitate so long; and to talk of the expense is idle twaddle. Never mind. don't get faint-hearted ; Rome was not made in a day. We'll get it. Now that the Euroa show has come and gone, the promoters are to be con gratulated on bringing it to such a successful termination ; but there are several defects in...

Russian Learning. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

IEsaisun Learning. Not to know your A B C in Russia is not the disgraceful tauntwhlchalphabetical ignorance is usually supposed to deserve. The 36 letters of the Russian alphabet require to be "wsrit large," so that those who run may read, for many of them are very colifusing from their evident likeness to one another. It is now well known that the shortsightedness so prevalent among the Germans is, in a' -great leasure, the result of ieading in the rather confusing but picturesque old German type. But the Germans have an easy way out of the pifliculty, which is denied to tile Russians. Any German letter may be represented by a corresponding one in Roman type. But in Russian it may take four or five of our letters to represent the sound which one Russian letter thinks nothing of exacting from tortured articulating organs. For instance, there is one Russian letter which would always have to be reprasented by this combination, "shtchs;" this charming vocable may occur twice in a word ...

The previous Wed nesday had been decided upon, but, as our Euroa friends have' chosen that date for the Euroa School pic-nic, it was thought advisable to fix upon the following Wed nesday, which has accordingly been done. The motive for fixing upon a Wednesday is to give our friends an opportunity of paying'us a visit ont that day, and it need scarcely be said that they will be made heartily welcome. To add to the interest of the day, the prizes will be distributed to the clhildren who have earned them during the year, and as a finish up some of the scholars will give a short entertain ment in the evening in tile school, in the shape of readings, recitations, etc. If I don't tell you that we have our share of snakes, you will think St. Patrick has been amongst us, but in order thlat there may be no delusion on that point...
