TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

TO THE EDITOR. Sm,-I hope I amn not too ]ate yet to have my little growl about the late show. Being the first show in Euroa, and no doubt the first in which some of our lead ing townsmen ever took lpart in the management of, I have no doubt somle crumbs of knowledge may be picked up by them (which' will serve them well in the future) by fair and open criticism. What 1 have to complain of is the great advan tagen len or mllanUfacturers wholl have weidth'on their side, have oer' their poorer rivals for honors; for instance in "collections" of various manufactures. Now, in a "collection" of harness and saddlery, what chance has a struggling tradesmalln against the manufacturer- who is the fortunmate possessor if money to back himi up. One (the tradesman) may show articles quite as good. (perhaps better) in style, finish, and strength, yet because lie cannot exhibit in quantities to compute with others in a larger way of business, lihe is shut out altogether. Could not most of the colle...

CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspondents.-Ed.] TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

CORRE4PONDE'CE. [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by correspon dents.-Ed.] TO THE EDITOR. SIR,- -As it might be profitable to some of the readers of the Advertiser, I would suggest that thlle correspondence opeiied up between "Bar One" and "Alice" be continued, for if such a subject be well debated-as it certainly would rot fail to be in such hands -it would prove interest ing and profitable to a number of persons, not in Tanmleugh alone, but, as "Bar One" puts it, "the whole box and dice in general." Now, I, for one, was very pleased to see " Bar One " throw down the gauntlet, but I was considerably more pleased that there was one at least of those "piano-players" who not only had the courage to take it up, but to make a bold stand in defence of her sex. "Bar One's" letter contained a certain amount of truth and good sense, but, speaking from an old lady's point of view, I fail to see that he mnade out a good case. Now, I know of mlany " lasses" ...

The Advertiser "Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy Country's, Thy God's, and Truth's." FRIDAY, 13th NOVEMBER, 1885. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

"Let all the ends thou aitn'st at be thy Country's, T?1.1 God's, and Truth's." SFRIDAY 18th NOVEMBER, 1885. THE generation of Australian natives, for which statesmen and those interested in our peculiar traits and social and national characteristics have been waiting, and over which so much speculation has been indulged in ever since the southern continent has been, recognised as something more than a mere convict depot, should shortly be exhibiting symptoms of vitality, and, within the next 10 or 15 years, at the outside, should begin to assert its indi viduality. As yet the outside world has gained little knowledge of :this rising participator in its legislative travails ; and has been keenly scrutinis ing tle rapidly-developing infant in. its growth from. infancyssup: with.but small effect; such opinions' as have obtained any degree of credence having been established more on accoiint of the popularity of those *ho, ha:i expressed them than from popular acceptance of a lucid and ...

Violet Town Sports. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

Violet Town Sports. Monday last, Prince of Wales' Birth day, was for the most part kept as a public holiday in Euroa and Violet Town. At the former' place, the business places were all closed, and malny of the residents visited Violet Town, where the Cricket Club held their annual sports. For some time previously, committees had been hard at work preparing a prograummne of sports, etc. A grand concert in the evening was also projected, but, owing to the holiday season, it was found difficult to secure the necessary talent, and- the idea' was allowed' to lapse in favor of a ball. The sports were held in the recreation reserve, a pleasantly-situated site, where a soft, grassy undergrowth ensured a complete absence of the irritat ing effects of the dust-fiend. At a very early hour in the morning, the .officers were on the ground preparing for the carrying out of the day's sport ; and, to their credit be it said, subsequent events proved that every necessary detail had been anticipated ...

A Chapter of Melancholy Deaths and Accidents. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 November 1885

A Chanpter of Melanchtoly Deatias aeljAcclidentcs. Since our last issue (says the "Shep parton News,") quite a gloom has been cast over the town and district by the announcement in succession of several sad deaths lnd accidents in and around Shepparton. In addition to those par ticularised hereunder, a rumor gained currency-on Saturday of-a case of suicide by poisoning at Congupna, and death from the effects of same. SUICIDE AT PINE LODGE. On Friday morning last news came to Shepparton of a shooting tragedy that occurred on a farm adjoining the Dookie road. When full particulars were learnt it was found that a young man had coun mited suicide in a very determined man ner, and from motives that are at present impossible to understand. Harry, a son of Mr Benjamin Blight, a farmer about seven miles from Shepparton, on the Dookie road, is well known to the neigh bourhood as a quiet, very deserving lad. He has never hitherto shown any precon ception of committing suicide, and it came as ...

A Warning. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 27 November 1885

A W99arnienl. Once in the office of theAdrcertiser, Displayed conspicuous upon a desk, A human skull, fleshless and vacant-eyed, Grinned horrible. Its forehead had a hole,. Pierced with precision, circular and true, And in dianeter scarc? equalling The early pea's orbicular expanse. j Some certain traces, too, of lead there S were, - , Bluely heblazing its bony verge. Beneath this vestige of humanity- This dumb, dead relic--hung a card whereon The printer's art in modest'characters i Apprised the curious, "This gentleman Demanded a retraction." . People came With foam upon their.lips, in either hand An arsenal ; but when they looked upon That eloquent legend, feelingly forebore To push to'a solution then and there The customary riddle of their race Unanswered from the dawn of time till now: " Who wrote that article 7 ' I know not i why, ..

Bays Should Learn Trades [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 27 November 1885

qBoys Shlould Learn Trades In all countries. the working-men boast that they form the backbone of the nation. Without entering on the vexed question of who form the working classes, we think the most independont in aniy country is he who learns a good and useful trade. -Cntn pared irith him the poor clerk, salesna~i, and even many- i the professions, have no calling or position that cin bear a moment's comparison. If they are thonroughly masters of their trade,' good. workmen never need fear starvation; they will be always able to make a living. If trade is dull at one place, they have only to change to another. Parents in' most countries who are a little well off are.'too much disposed to turn up their noses at the trades, and instead of teaching their boys one of these, give them a first-class education, and then comparatively throw it away by putting them, to: what they falsely consider the more respectable em ployment of a clerk or salesman,; that in general does not command hal...
