CRICKET. EUROA VERSUS TRADES. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 February 1885
EUROA VERSUS TRADES. At the commencement of this cricket ing season the employes in the various shops in Euroa formed a cricket club for the purpose of playing of a Wednesday aftenloon, upon which day the stores are all closed. Some animosity : as shown towards the older club, but this now appears to have passed away ; as on Wednesday week a friendly game was played between the two clubs. Pleasents captained the Euroa, and Sinclair, an old Hotham cricketer performed a like: duty for the Trades. The Euroa had only eight men, and with this number they entered the 'field, against fourteen opponents. Fowler and Parkinson, were the first to represent the Trades. Scott took upl the trundling, and bowled Parkinson first ball. His successor Oveldon was bowled next ball.

EUROA WATER SUPPLY. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER.) [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 February 1885
EUROA WATER SUPPLY. (TO TIIE EDITOR OF THE .ADVERTISER.) Sim,-Seeing:that the ftown is rapidly exteiiding and its population daily increas ing'it seems extraordinary that the Council lias nbt been struck with the importance and necessity of a ' watersuplply." This matter is of primary'importance, it touches the public health so closely that neglect is almost a crime. Every one knows the great danger there is in drawing supplies of water from wells. For what with surface contammation, such as occurs when heavy rain falls, and pollution from in filtration which exists in all towns more or less. Thero are the fruitful germs of the fellest diseases. I have no desire to connmmucnt upon the Councils action or rather inaction. Because otherwise there is little to find fault with. Yet the Coun cil no matter how excellently it fulfills its duties in other particulars is guilty of gross neglect, while it allows the water supply question to lie dormoent. And I ae no reason why theomatter, shiu...
