The boy that threw the hook plucked it out of the other's body, raised him in his arms, and then laid him down and ran for Dr Tibbits.

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 19 March 1875

OZL fS' 1-AV/) VJNTI'.5. -K---0----- We have beciireoqested to contradict a paragraph which I:tp'Ieared in tile 'Gcloeq q'ihes of TuesdayUlaut. The paragraph in qucstion contaius a st tatc:eent respecting James North, of Jirregerra, having " vio lently assaulted a Mrs Halliway while tra velling in one of th:e Western coaches." Our lBirregurra correspondent Informs us that the statement is quite incorrect. North, as the paragraph goes on to state, wascertainly appreohended on warrant charged with as sanlting Ms IIHalliray, and remained in the lock-up at Colac for a day or two,- ild was then remanded to Dirrcgurra. Butthe alihir occurred in a paddock, and not in a coach, and our correspondent states that the woman was much to blame as the man North, as she first attacked him with a stick. It appears to us from .our correspondent's statement! that North has been very harshly treated, and a very extreme proceeding was resorted to by taking out a warrant against him, and dragging him to ...

To this we all consented. Having no other means to take a lottery,- we hit upon using small sticks of different sizes, deciding that. the one who drew the smallest should be the victim.

CURE OF FLUKE IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 23 March 1875

CURE OF FLUKE IN SHEEP. The cure of fluke in sheep has long attracted the arttntion of scientific men, and its importance cannot be over estimated, more rarticularly in con tries where sheep-farming is extensively carried on. The disease is so destruc tive in its effects, and so rapid in its spread, that once it appears on a run the owner may deem himself lucky if it does not eventuate in his total or comparative ruin. Numerous remedies have been tried for its cure and for pre. venting its spread, but none of them have proved to any extent successful. Another attempt is now being made, under sanction of the Government, based on an entirely new principle, for the extermination of the disease. Mir Joseph Sullivan, manulaciuring chem ist, of this city, has, after long study of the nature of the disease, uroduced what he confidently thinks will prove a specific, and has for some tine past been in communication with Mr Curr, Chief Inspector of Stock for Victoria, with a viesvto obtaining...

Mr John Scott hatd a four.in-hand turn out, and I secured a seat in the trap. The veteran whip toled his team alont in rare style, arnd the only matter whiclh is at all worth noticing on our trip downwards was the quantity of dust that flew aboutin great clouds, at times enveloping my fellow-passengers and myself completely. Having arrived safely at Lassbell's Hotel, we all got out, and " Old Son" gave the horses a spell and something to cat before pro ceeding to the course. We went into the hotel, where we found a fine luncheon prepared, which was partaken of by a good number of Colac celebri ties, amidst the usual running fire of small talk which prevails on such occa sions, there being, as con be imagined, a good deal of " horse" about it.
