TALLAROOK CHAMPION PLOUGHING MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 11 August 1870
TALLAROOK CHAMPION PLOUGHi ING MATCH. A ploughing match took place on Mr James Fleming's farm on the 29th ultimo, and the prizes offered attracted one of the largest fields ever witnessed in the districts of Tallarook or Seymour. On this occasion no less than fifteen ploughmen were en tered, and the ploughing was performed in first class style, which rendered it extremely difficult for the judges to award prizes. The ground selected for the occasion seemed to be in first-class order, but owing to the re cent heavy rains it was rendered very swampy, especially so where the trees had been grubbed for thbis occasion. The judges appointed were Messrs Rogerson (of Kilt more) and Kilmurry (of Broadford), and great credit is due to Mr T Woods, the hon. sec., who discharged his duties in a praise worthy manner. The prizes were awarded as follows:- CLAss A. Name. Ploughing for Who's Plough £ 3 Taylor T Px Lennon 6 S. M'Oluwe J C ilan Do 3 W Thompson A Port-. D 1 CLses B. R Norrish D Callan D...

PERAMBULATORI This season-of course I mean this wet season-I, as well as many others, am sub ject to fits of melancholia, and as I am gene rally a dull creature this is the wrong period for me to essay to put you in posses sion of anything startling or witty. I fear if this weather continues you will wake up one fine morning to find that poor " Peram. bulator" had "shuffled off this mortal coil," and a verdict of twelve of my countrymen, presided over by the coroner, an institution SIcannot think of with a degree of pleasure, Smay hand my name down to posterity as having done it honorably without giving my neighbours any unnecessary trouble. Do you know, sir, if there is anything would make me wish for a prolonged exists. ence in this world it is that I should be spared to repay that bootmaker who responded to my appeal of last week. I am sorry I don't know the name of the benefac. tor whose charitable motives led him to dis guise the generous act, but whoever he is he may rest assu...
