Drysdale Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 29 November 1884

Drysdale Notes. BY YOKEL Business very quiet, and the weather fine. Haymaking has commenced. Potatoes and peas are now sent away from here—fair prices obtained for both. The opinion is that last week's concert at the Free Library was not up to the mark, and not so excellent as previous ones. The pro ceeds amounted to about £15; it is expected that about £11 will be left after expenses are cleared. On Friday, 21st instant, a meeting was held at the Buck's Head of those in favor of a social some time in the holidays. About 13 present. Mr J. Banks presided; Mr W Par sons was appointed secretary, and Mr G. Hol lins treasurer. It will be held on New Year. A better attendance is expected at the ad journed meeting, to be held in a week. Owners of orchards are still troubled with the green beetle pest. By constant attention, and shaking the trees, etc., not so much mis chief is done by the insects as would be the case were they allowed their own sweet will.
