CRUSHED OUT [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 14 November 1884
CRtUSHED OUT A so.MEWATr determined and dreadful little journal has recently been launched in Paris. The new paper rejoices in theall-significant titleofthe Anti-A nglais, and its raison d'c/re is fraught with the most terrible consequences to the British nation. The crimes of pe;fide Albion are set forth at great length by this late addition to French literature, an-I dilated upon at much greater length. After giving many grave and potent reasons why it should thus express itself, the Anti-Anylais exclaims, "It is high time that we Frenchmen,; whose ancestors have suffered so much from the English, should unite to wage a war upon them without truce or. mercy -a commercial and manufacturing was to begin with, a maritime war after wards, until after having driven the English from every part of the world where they are in our way, we shall ultimately chaistise them in their own den for the crimes they have committed with impunity during a long course of centuries. To work then ! Let a...

MARRAWEENY. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 14 November 1884
[riOen OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] I am sorry I cannot'comply with your expressed wish'to send you a detaieile ac count of the crops in this district,` as I have no means ll f ascertaining the acreage. I may say that crops in general arelooking tolerably healthy. Oats are the principal crop in this district.; wheat however is looking better this: season than hereto fore, a natural consequence I suppose of the timber being killed, and the ground becoming pulverised and sweetoned every year. I regret to hear fronm nearly allU the sheopowners, complaints of a poor' per "centage of lambs. Some attribute this-to dogs, others to tiger cats, eagles aisd .crows. Some of the lambs not being killed, but pieces literally eaten out of their hind quarters. Poison I bclievoivas laid in plenty, and I believe with little effect, except perhaps to poison a few : in nocent canines. And here let me relate a witty: reniark I heard from a very irate individual the otbei.day. This individual in question (who...

STRATHBOGIE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 14 November 1884
STI?RITHBOGIE NORTH. The weatheris all that can be desired for this, district, and should it continue there will be an abundant harvest. The growth of- grass has not been equalled.in this part for yeais. As an instance a farmerielmre has 180 sheep depasturing on 20 acres, and it seems to grow- faster than they can eat it down. I may state that the land was under crop last year, -and has been left out this season. Farmer's aro all pushing ahead with potatoe planting. The high price of them this season has given encouragement to" devote a little more land to their culture than has hitherto been done. We had- a flying visit from. Messrs. George and Williams, photographers of Euroa, lately. But owing to not having had aly intimation-of tleiriintended visit, we were all taken by surprise. 'And I certainly shoild suggest that a small dd vertisement in the local paper would well repay them before making visits into the country districts. The new 'Land Act seems to meet iith the wishes of s...

T. lc!Phersou:'s look Ilourishing, and others again do not look as well, but taking them all through the crops look much better than expected. A severe accident happened to a farmer named W\illiam Wardale, residing in Str'athbogie, caused by his horse bolting, and therowing hivn out of his dray, and thereby inflicting bruises on his shoulders and arms.
