RELIGIOUS SERVICE AT THE SHIRE HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 22 February 1878
RELIGIOUS SERVICE. AT THE SHIRE .HALL. On Sunday evening the Rev. Horace Tucker preached in the Shire Hall to an attentive audience. He took for his text Proverbs xxii 6:-" Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." " There were," said the preacher, "times and seasons for all things; there was a time to plough, and a time to sow, and a time.to gather the.harvest into the barn, and so each time or season should be taken in its. own right time, otherwise we.: lost the igolden opportunity which miight never come again. And as in all the various fields of labour and human enterprise, so the same might be applied t3 man's social and moral condition. There was a tinie for the .seed to be sown in the hearts of the young, and a time when it would be useless. to try to do so; when youth had gone, when neither time nor opportunity might avail. The time the only and right, time, to. sow the seed of all: Christian viirtues and charities, to plant t...
THE ILLUSIONISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 22 February 1878
TBE ILLUSIONISTS.. Accordin~ to announcement, the t Illusionists, Messrs Silvester and Cur thew, gave the first of their choice entertainments in the Kerang Hall on f Saturday evening last. Owing to the distance from their place of perform s ance on the previous evening being I greater than calculated on, the com t pany was rather late in arriving, so that the performance did not com mence exactly at the advertised time. The cause of the delay was satisfac torily explained to the audience. The performance commenced with feats of magic by Messrs. Silvester and Curthew. and included some-very neat tricks with cards, &c. The amount of material extracted from a hat borrowed from a gentleman among the audience would lead one to believe that he is a traveller in the soft goods line* After a wig and yards of various coloured ribbons had been extracted, a full suit of babies' clothes, and about a score of boxes, were also taken out.

SELECT POETRY LONGING. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 22 February 1878
SELECTE-POETRY - I would I were an usiblown rose Close shut in leaves of green- So shut that none had ever guessed The colour hidden in its breast By bhIsh of pink between. Then when your face but turned mny way, As now, thle crumpled sheen Of crimson hid so safe away Would stir the livelong summer day Within, unheard, unseen; But, when year footsteps nearer drew Would burst the green apart, And petals glowing in the sun Would chronicle to every one The new life at my. heart. And tally sweet of all the leagues You passed of sea or shore, The clasping calyx still should hold: For every one there would unfold One velvet petal more. So when at la.st, no space between, Your own from stem yon broke, And in your handul my perfeet grace Perehalus vyo lifted to your face, Although no word you spoke - Ah, then, indleed the petals all Down on the dewy h ward might fall Before you as von weOnt And if perchance your eager feet 3Migiht find for them the way more sweci, Then I were all content.

A "LEE CLUB T) T E lDtTOR OFr TH KERANG T?ais. Sir.-Two or three. weeks ago there was oomr talk about a Glee Club heing farmed in K.rang ; in fact it was spoken about so much that theformstion of two was contemplated. I was in, hopes something would have come out of it, but-Kerang like-it appears tc have ended in talk. It is a pity, I think. sucl should be the case, as we have ample talens and time to bring it into working ord r.
