BADDAGINNIE. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 February 1885
(FROM OUR OWN CORREPONDENT) What might have proved a serious affair happened here on Tuesday night. A visitor to the town was going across from the Union Church to the railway station. After crossing the fence in Railway-street, he fell into a hole made by the Railway Department, but was fortunate enough to receive only a slight sprain of the ankle, which, though not very severe, caused him to limp for a few hours. The hole re- ferred to is one over which the Railway Department and theBenalla Shire Council have had so much correspondence. As long as this remains exposed to strangers, and in fact the residents, are not safe at night time. It is to be hoped the affair will now receive the attention it de- serves. On last Tuesday week the licensee and proprietor of the Baddaginnie Hotel, Mr. James Hood Dunlop, gave a social tea to celebrate the opening of his house, which as the advertisement stated, was open to all his neighbours and friends who choose to attend. From an early hour ve...
MOGLONEMBY JOTTINGS [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 13 February 1885
MOGLOXEflIflT JOTTflGSi BY " INCOG." I should like to throw out a suggestion for the careful consideration of our shire councillors when arranging for the con struction of bridges in the future. The hint may likewise be taken to refer to some of those already built, and just for the sake of pacifyiug some of the more timid ratepayers, amongst whom is your humble servant, perhaps some magnani mous member will speak out, and earn for himself the esteem, the good opinion, the -the-a-the votes of his constituents. I am aware that letters, and petitions are acknowledged 'when received by the shire secretary, but, bless my--oh ! no, I musn'nt come it too strong; but does it not seem queer that for everything a rate payer, needs, he must either write a letter or get up a petition and present it to the council?, This is the rule I know, and just by way of chatnge, so as to prove the rule, let there be one exception, said ex ception to be in reference to'the bridges.

TOO ADORABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 20 February 1885
TOO ADORADLJE. What is an unfortunate man to do when a lady persistently bescts lim with matrimonial .overtures? To be dogged whenever he goes out by an importunate fuiir our, ceaselessly clamouring for tlhe magic golden circlet, must indeed become a terrible strain on human nerves after a month or ;two. At first the victim may feel flattercd, as appears to have been the case with a furnaceiran at Carbrook when subjected to this form of fceminine persecution. But after a time the demands of self love were more than satisfied, and he besought his persecutor to bestow her blandishments in some other quarter. Not only did she refuse to do so, but added to his sufferings by setting up ts a soothsayer. Day after day, ler plrophetic mind sketched fancy pictures of future bliss, in which she and the' object of her fond choice always figured as Darby and Joan. Whether the man began at last to fear that tlhese predictions might lead to their own fulfilnent, unless promptly stopped, is not st...

TAMLEUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 20 February 1885
- TA2ILEUF J GiR. (FvROm OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). After thrce very hot days last week we had the pleasure of listening to some filne rain pattering on the roofs of our houses. This rain l:though not sultfficient to re ilenish damns &c., has done a vast amount of good by putting an end to the bush fires in this district. A farmer here having nothing better to do, attempted to burn off his "'stubble stutff," and. suc ceeded so far, that lie not only burnt his own stubbles, grass, and fencing, but also that of his neighbour. ]However, 1 ami happy to state that the rain effectually stopped its progress. It is really surpris ing that a rma: of such experience as the one referred to, should be so foolhardy as to endanger his own and his neighbours' properties by attempting to rid himself of his stubbles by tire so early in the season. Like luany other parishes, Tamleuglh has now the privilege of having two post offices to suit the coliveniience of its in habitanuts. The new post of...
