A CUTE MASTIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 8 August 1884

A CUTE AilASTFF. AT the time in question lie lived at Yarmouth, and bad for a neighbour "a tanner, whose manufacturing premises were close at hand. The tanner had. a a: mastiff that guarded his yard by night. Tihe tanner had a foreman who lived withi him nany years-bcfore the purchase of the mastiff, indeed. As the foreman was more about the premises than any oneo else, and as, imorleover, it was his bulsiness to see, that tlhe dog was regularly fed, the greatest good feeling existed between them,,. It happened, however, that that the forenman's integrity was doubted, anud he was summarily dis charged, and another man taken on in his place. It seemed that there was ample ground for suspecting the honesty of the old foreman; for within a month of being discharged lie con ceived the notion of robling his late employers, by removing a cartload of hides in the night, assuming that his intimate acquaintasee with the yard (log would protect him from difficulty in that quarter. So in the d...

The topic was " Is smoking a vice." lMr H. J. _l'Kay said no, and considered that in some cases it was a benefit. Mr J. Runcenian took the same view. After a long discussion, it was carried that smoking was not good. The subjects fSr next night are "Total absti nence" versus " Mloderation" and "Land on freehold or lease." The local brass band played some fine selections of music. Mr II. J. M3'Kay has started a Black smith's shop in our midst, which ought t. prove a great boon to the farmers. As football is played a great deal on Sundays here, it would be well if the police would take a ride out some day, and put a stop to such a practice; An unlleasant row took place during the week between two young men, well known in this district. One of the coum batants had his finger broken.

WEDNESDAY, 6th AUGUST. (Before Messrs Birkett and M'Guinness, J.P. .) Patrick O'Loughlin, who appeared with the bridge of his nose and his cheek con— siderably denuded from bark, besides having his hand enveloper in bandages, was charged with having assaulted John Donovan. The defendant, on being called in to plead, said he supposed he did assault the plaintiff, but he believed the latter did not want to press the charge. Senior Constable Orr deposed that in consequence of a complaint made by the plaintiff's wife yesterday, he arrested O'Loughlin. The row it appeared, had occurred between 12 and 1 o'clock in con— sequence of a disturbance between the plaintiff's mate and the defendant about a month ago. The plaintiff who appeared with his nose handsomely illustrated by sticking plaster over the bridge, deposed that he was arguing with O'Loughlin, when they went outside to decide the matter, and the defendant enforced his arguments with a brick bat, which knocked witness sense— less....

EUROA SHIRE ELECTIONS. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER.) [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 8 August 1884

EUROA SHIRE ELECTIONS. (TO THE EDITOR OF TIE ADVERTISER.) Sit,- I beg leave to offer a few re marks respecting the candidates for -the i dfferent ridings, Mr M'Kenna is a maii of long experience in local government, having been councillor and President of the Shire of Metcalf for many years, and le holds excellent testimonials as to his usefulness, and the respect in which he was held by his fellow councillors. I feel sure he would be an acquisition to the Euroa Shire Council. Being a farner, lie would be most likely to study the far mer's interests than a townsman. Cr M'Guinness has had a long innings, but has not shown by his actions in -various important matters, that he is entitled to a renewal of the confidence of the rate payers of the central riding. His accep tance of the £30 donation from the shire, and the purchase of the Rechabite Hall will be fresh in the memory of the rate payers, and doubtless their verdict will be given at the ballot box, on Thursday next. For the Sou...

RAILWAY BUNGLING. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 8 August 1884

RAILlWAY BUNGLING. NorTmIo is more disagreeable to us than to have to grumble. To sonme people it comes naturally, and they are never happier than when finding fault. But with us it is different. There are times however, in whichl we must get over our prejudices, and give an occasional rap over the knuckles. lThe present is one of these occasions, and the subject of our complaint is the great bungling at the R:ailway Station. Several times of late, parcels sent by us have not reached their destination until two or three dlays after they were sent. On Friday our parcel of papers for Violet Town was left at the local station about nine o'clock, but did not reach its destination till Friday night. If it was only once such a thing occurred we would not utter a murmur, but when it becomes of frequent occurrence, we feel it our duty to publicly call attention to it, and see if such annoyance canlot he prevented in the future. From enquiries we have insti tuted, it would appear that the gu...

I see from the news bythie nail tha.t tho IMaori King and his suite, have been creating a mild sensation ir London, but not to the extenit that might have becn expected.

Have they not become civilized enough to know that in order to create anything of 'a stir now-a-days one must go to extremlles, and the more bare skin (be it white as snow or black as ebony, tattooed or other 3vise) that is exposed to public gaze the better the fun and the more the gazers..: It does not alhays do to make unimcompli mentary remarks against'the press, for as a rule they can hit back harder thani what; they got.
