In Memoriam of Mr. David Cree. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser and Violet Town, Longwood, Avenel, Strathbogie, Balmattam and Miepoll Gazette — 18 July 1884

Ina iemaoralan of Mr. DLvilI SCree. SAnother soul has taken flight, To thosd fait worlds unknown n; Oh may we ready be to night, Lest our last hour should come. Tis true that in the midst of life,i. .' Near death we are sure to be ; Oh God have mercy on my soul, As I cast myself on thee. S':Death is a grim messenger, To those who fIar to die; . But those whose sins are all forgiven, Shall rise to joys on high. S , We should not be afraid to die, For in death there is no sting; ' As our Lord gave his only son, To'dio.for allour sin. :And oh dear friends and relatives, You should not.weep and sigh; For you know tlhat you will meet again: In the bright home above the sky.

RE THE BATE-COLLECTORS REPORT. (TO THE :EDITORi OF THi AD ) ERTISFR.) Szr,-A- s a ratepayer in the Shire,'please insert a few lines on ihe above subject -as dealt ivith at the lasi meeting. It is surely necessary to say little, for by this time it must be quite manifest to the Councillors - who voted against the officer's fair request that a proper and reasonable demand met a most unreisonable response. A clerk--.in .. a bark, merchants office, or any decent institutinn is at all times supplied witlithe necessary. accoii~ihodation and convenience to fairly fulfil his duties; this is-ipparently denied one of the officers of siuch-an important. -body as the Etiroh Shi ' i-oluncil. Fully ....believing that the n?atr will at the next council meeting reoined and equitably done byrumiour. I.shall refrain to criti cise in the meantime, :but must add that much scope exists for such.-Yours, &c., RATEPAYER, CENTRAL RIDINfG. Euroa, July 15th., 1884.

The Man at the Corner. (WITH AN EYE LIKE AN EAGLE.) [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser and Violet Town, Longwood, Avenel, Strathbogie, Balmattam and Miepoll Gazette — 18 July 1884

S The MVan at' the Corner.. (wiTs AS EYE LIKE AN EAGLE.) SIt strikes mie that Mr Geor(te Connor, the rate-collector, has been r?ther badly treated by the Shire Council. It appears that in consequence of .the work being somewhat behind wheic he took office, and k also through his work' lhaving been de layed throuh the hall having been let so l often, and invariably left in a most dis I graceful state, he was compelled to obtain Sclerical assistance for five days; and for! him. By a majority of one, the counucil decided notto accede to his request. ,.I cam understand councillors objecting to the principle of paying for outsiders. to :assist their oflicer, who receive good s salaries for performing their duties, but when a new man takes office, awd" finds the work a month, behind.'. surely the council could pay the'trifling sumi which it cost him to get his work .up, in order that he could commence his duties fairly r and squarely. Is in future ?Mr Connor proves that he is unable to pe...

The Dude. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser and Violet Town, Longwood, Avenel, Strathbogie, Balmattam and Miepoll Gazette — 18 July 1884

What is that, mother ? That curious thing Ambling the streets with a languid swing, With a spike-tail coat and gorgeous vest; And eyeglass dangling on its chest ; With dogskin gloves, a bell-crowned hat, Such poor, thin legs, and a body flat ? Lerie and weird it looks to me ; O, mother, what can the creature be ? O, hush, child, hush. 'Tis no goblin rude, 'Tis only a harmless little dude. But what is a dude, mother dear? How did they make a thing so queer . Did it grow while we were all asleep, Like the grass, and geese, and pretty sheep ? Do you think that Barnum drew the plan To have something new for his caravan?   It walks like a chicken, can it fly ? Will you tell me about it by and bye ? There is little to tell, my child. 'Tis plain 'Tis the form of a man with a monkey's brain
