This was, no doubt, the male servant's quarters, and it would be necessary for the attackers to keep that fact in mind. "Let us go to yonder door and knock.

HALF-HOLIDAY C.C. V. SHEPPARTON TRADES C.C. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 November 1894

HALF-HOll)AY C.C. V. SHEP PARTON TRADES C.C. A match was played on the latter club's groond on Wednesday last, and resulted in a decisive victory for the home team. "Davis captained Ta'I'tra, and Smith acted likewise for Shepparton. Davis won the toss, and elocted to bat on a very indiluerent wicket, sceding in Shlehani and 0. Price. The latter was disposed of by being caught off a miss hit, as also was Davis after lie had con tributed 3. Sheehan hatted splendidly throughout his innings; lie was ninth man out after contributing 15. Hewson miade 7 very well, and Charlett (9) batted very freely. Hardinian broke his record by nmakipg 2. InMaxwell wielded the willow very well, and was, credited with 6 when disposed of. 'lThe total was *t9. Shepparton sent in Smith and Cook as first representatives, but Price soon found Smith's weak point by getting himi well caught by Walker. Sheehan bowled well, securing Manni and uBond, and Cook being cleverly satunped by )Davis off the same bowIcr. S...

MOOROOPNA. [Newspaper Article] — The Kyabram Union and Rodney Shire Advocate — 30 November 1894

MOOROOPNA. On Tuesday afternoon about 2 o'clock the Mooroopna firebell sounded an alarm of fire, which was found to be the engine house at the Chinese gardens, the engine being used for pumping water for irri- gating the gardens. The building was completetly destroyed, and the machinery also suffered considerable damage. The fire was caused through the wind blowing sparks out of the furnace. The building was not insured. Hospital Sunday service is to be con- ducted at Undera on Sunday afternoon. The Kyabram Brass Band have very kindly offered their services, and a strong choir has also been formed.

I had intended having a chicken poe-pie, and I wanted to astonish the head of thebouso with my proficiency. But I forgot one thing, although quito familiar with the famous recipe of hire. Glass-"flrst catch your hare.' I had not caught the ohioken-it was not Skilled-and thore was no cook book in all the range of my ignorance-and it was almost unlimitod-which gave a recipe for cookl,. lire abicikens. " Joanna," I said to my staunch maid of all work. "you must kill the chicken." "N rer did euch a thing in my life," said Joanna shortly. "1F'eyther always wrung their recks at home." "T1hen why not wring its neck," I sug geeted with a shuddek. " Couldn't do it, mem.

.THE BAND CONCERT. - -A,-- A fairly large audienice assembled at the Mechanics on Wednesday night for the concert in .aid of tihe funds of the local brass band. It is unfortunate that the comnittee decided to hold the enter tainnment at this period of the year, as the farmers are all busy harvesting, and therefore too tired to come into town after an arduois day's work, and we regret to have to say that the funds will not benefit to thIe extent that might lbe wished. 'Prior to the enItertainmeit the band played sonic selections outside, and showed the great improvement nmade under tihe bandnmiater, Mr Treacy. Oii the curtaini rising there werm' revealed the familiar black circle, 'with Mr Duninett ns interlocntor, and Messrs Ritchie and Iew..moi as bones amnd tambo respectively.
