EUROA AMATEUR PARLIAMENT. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER.) [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 25 July 1884

EUROA AMATEUR PARLIAMENT (TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER) Sir - As a letter appeared in last week's Ensign signed Anti-Humbug, making certain disparaging remarks, anent the Euroa Mutual Improvement Society, I shall deem it a favour if you will kindly aIlow me through the medium of' your columns to enter a short reply, to what you so aptly designated in your last issue as a slanderous composition. Anti-Hum bug seems in the magnanimity of his dis position to feel for and to dread that the members of the society may be afllicted by the calamity of premature second childhood ;but what-he means by saying that this indesirable state is not usually reached until we are on the bonny side of four years, I confess I do not understand, I am afraid he himself is already in a state of second childhood, or rather he has not yet emerged from his first. His deficient mental capacity apparently does not enable him to understand the meaning of the phrase he quotes in his letter- " men should be men,...

Country Notes. Baddaginnie and Warrenbayne. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 25 July 1884

Country Notes. (From our own Correspondents.) Baddaginnie and Warren bayne. As it is now some time since I sent my last notes, I daresay your numerous readers will expect to see a budget of news, if so, they will be greatly dissap pointed, as news is very scarce here. What little there is to chronicle, I gladly send. A month or two ago, a petition of re presentation to the Minister of Justice was extensively signed, its object being to ask that gentleman to proclaim Baddaginnic a special licensing district. No reply hla up to the present been received, but I understand a counter petition has been forwarded to the Minister, this one hay ing been signed by a very few persons. Being a temperance believer, I am naturally averse to the establishment of public houses; but in this case, I must honestly say that Baddaginnie having risen to a place of such importance, it is entitled to one. The selectors and other residents of Warrenhayne, Willis; Lima and. Boho frequently have occasion to t...

The Man at the Corner. (WITH AN EYE LIKE AN EAGLE.) [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 25 July 1884

The Man at the Corner   WITH AN EYE LIKE AN EAGLE) What a beautiful appearance our front street will have when the North Eas-. tern Hotel and the Public Hall are finished. The people who pass through in the train are already beginning to notice the flourishing condition of our little township. A gentleman said tomnie the other day. " Why if Euroa goes on im proving as it is doing, it will soon be as large as Benalla." I could hardly go so far as that, but quite coincided with the speaker when he remarked that we must have some enterprising men our midst. Ay, I replied, that's the secret of our success, it's to them we owe our good buildings, and increased prosperity. If that's the case, he said, a great future for Euroa is to be predicted. I was glad to see in your last issue that Anti-IHumsbug's letter was not to go un answered. .I hope your correspondents will slate into hism properly, because if ever a man deserves it, lie does. - A more contemptible creature cannot ...

SOME iEXPKERENCE 1N TH i --MILITIA. BrY" SILUS SNELL." When .the M.ilitia fever was at its worst, I caught the disease pretty bad, and longed to be a protector of our hearths and homes, our henroosts, and oal lpotato plots, and various other things. So, with fire in tuy eyes, and ambition in my heart. I tacked four soles on my boots, combed my hair, and went forth to be measured. I was about half an inch too short,,.but a stretch, which started my back bone out of joint in several places, reached ne ulp, and they handed me over to a doctor, who mauled my tongue about, ind discovered that 1 liad one lung gone, heart disease, scrofula, and reli gious mania; but as this was an im provement on the average applicant, they passed me on. Maybe I did feet pretty uppish when I stood in the'ranks, with a belt round nuy waist, and a bread knife at my side. If any imbecile old Russian had come along just then to wrest these colonies from Her Most Gracious Majesty, things would have gone rather ...

THE SIMPLETON. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 1 August 1884

THE SIMPLETOUV. IT is as well to know on such excellent authority as Lord Tennyson, that literary "parallelisms" are possible. Writing recently to a critic of The Princess, the noble poet is reported to have said, " I do not object to you inuding parallclismus. They must al ways recur. A man (a Chinese scholar) sometime ago wrote to me saying that in an unknown, untrans lated Chinese poem, that there were two whole lines of mine. Why not Are not human eyes all over the world looking at the same objects, and must there not consequently be coincidences of thought and impressions and ex pressions. It is scarcely possible for anyone to say or write anything at this late time of the world, to which in the rest of the literature of the world a parallel could not somewhere be found." I'm exceedingly glad to have read this before glancing over a country paper which came into my hands lately. In this journal I had the pleasure of reading an article which had appeared in a Melbourne daily a s...

If they change their lan;lels, or are tired, or wear tight garments, they want their backs a scratched as a luxury. You see my hands are peculiar. I can slip them t down a lady's back no matter how t tight her dress. There is a hollow in the back on pui'posc. My hand fits into e that."
