A FRENCH DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 16 November 1882

A FRENOH DUEL Fatal duels are now of such rare occurrence that the encounter between M. de Masses, editor of the " Combat," and .M. Diehard, director of the "Petit Corporal" deserves special notice. *The quarrel which led" to this fatal en counter arose out of the dissensions in the Bonapartist camp, the "Petit Corporal" being an organ which claims Prince Victor as its chief, while M. de' Massas, in the "Combat" sustained the cause of Prince Napoleon. After the Bonapartist meeting held. on 15th August, the controversy between the two journals degenerated into a veri table paper war, the " Combat" being particularly distinguished by th'e: ex= ecssive violence .of its' articles. The duel between the two 'principals was averted last month by the efforts of mutual friends, but still the` quarrel went on and a duel' became inevitable. An attempt to fight on the 28th August was frustrated by the police, and the duel was fixed for 3rd September, in the private grounds of a prominent Bonapa...

TREASURE TROVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 16 November 1882

' TREASURE TROVE A few days ago Mr Heath, the manager of the National Bank, Christ church, New Zealand, received a letter by post containing a plan of St. John's Church;, and an intimation that by digging -close to. the, buttress of the north porch gold would. bo found hidden in an old shoe, buried a few feet from the surface of the ground. Mr. Heath was naturally a good deal perplexed by this communication, and was at first rather unwilling to do as directed, for. fear.: the whole thing should turn out to be a hoax. How ever; after a little consideration, he consulted Inspector Fender, and the two determined to try the experiment. At'eight o,clock on Thursday evening they- proceeded to, St. John's Church with the necessary tools and a dark lantern, and called at the parsonage to ask .permission of the Rev. Mr. * Watson, the incumbent, to dig at the spot indicated. That gentleman was not at hlome, and it was decided to go on with the work at once. They dug for several hours, without...

A quack doctor heads his advertisoe ment, " Ho I all ye dyspeptics 1" That's just what the dyspeptics won't do. If they would all. hoe vigorously, they might not need any medicine. A seaside' belle left her bathing shoes hanging out of the hotel window to dry, and the next day a local paper announced that" such an hotel had put up new awning of an antique design."

THE BABY'S ATOGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 16 November 1882

THE BABY'S ATOGRAPH. They gave it to me atChristmas-the pretty new autograph album-and I was very proud of it; the binding was so gay, and the white gilt-edged sheets so spotlessly pure. I could hardly make up my mind who should have the honor of dedicating that album, or what verse was grand enough to be inscribed onits pages ; and before I had quite decided baby found it! She had toddled into the parlor and taken it down from the table before we missed her, and was sitting cross-legged like a Turk, with the precious book in her lap. That would not have been worth recording, and I should not value my album beyond price now if it were all. But she had a pencil--for she dearly loved to scribble on bits of paper-and she had made her mark on the front leaf (the title page) of my beautiful book. She had made a dozen marks, criss-cross and. zig-zag, and.there she sat, her bright hair tossed down over her face, her little demure mouth pursed up, her blue eyes full of mischief, half-shy, h...

THURSDAY MORNING, NOV.18, 1882. Tnes necessity which exists for connect ing the township of 'Briagolong'with other parts by means of telegraphy, 'has on many occasions come: most forcibly under our notice;, and we, only regret that 'opliortunity has not earlier been afforded us of bringing this vital re quirement into notice. The isolation, so to speak, of a township of such importanco seems" prfectly withouit justification, for apart altogether from the inconveoriience experienced by our Briagolong neighbors in consequence of this want, the establishment of ai tele graph oflico there could not fail to be a success from a financial point of view, for we feel assured .that the boon would be widely availed of by the community.. Amongst the residents of Briagolong are a number of well-to-do graziers and farmers, whose business in the way of trucking cattle, dealing, &c.; frequently necessitates their being in communication' with the principal cattl3 markets, and instead of beii...
