LONGWOOD JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser and Violet Town, Longwood, Avenel, Strathbogie, Balmattam and Miepoll Gazette — 4 July 1884

LO\GWOOi)' JUOTTIGmiSa. BY " LORIS." -The story of 'Emblat's exiperience in la cenmetry-at . say Timbuctoo, -which ap. peared in a former issue was indeed a mixed one, and while perusing it, I could not help thinking he should have headed his article with Iugoldsby's lines, " just for harmony,'' as it were. The dead man opened his chapless jaws, And groaned three eldritch groans, Aiid out of hys mduthe from northe to southe He spat out hys own thigh-bones. =Emblat's. complaint should. cause the trustees of a great number of. country cemetries te "shrivel," but as it is popu larlyy.supposed that they .were either misapplied with that article.of furniture known as a conscience in the beginning, or it has been so hardened by rough usage as to be useless for practical pur poses, it will be of little use.

IN MEMORIAM. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser and Violet Town, Longwood, Avenel, Strathbogie, Balmattam and Miepoll Gazette — 4 July 1884

We have received the following lines of poetry touclhing the death of thq late Mrs. Sutherland. They were written by a lady. resident of 'Euron,"and indoub tedly shoi the w;riter to be ' poetess:of no mean order: They whispered her gentle.,spirit had As they stood by the side of her- .dying: bed. They, said it-but oh ! it could. not be, For hler face vas cahnl as a entle sea. -No strugglh of 'db'ethwaS-?sp sini g there -To ruffle her browsso placid and fair; Not' even a" tear froi the peaceful.eye, Which has opened to smile in eternity. So calmly and sweetly she sank to rest, Like a babe lulled to sleep on its mother's breast. Her pure spirit fled like a startled dove. To rest in her Saviour's bosom of love. Euroa, June 27th, 1884.
