ENTERTAINMENT AT CiLRIST MAS HILLS. S(roa A OOnRIPONDErYT.) The Meaond meeting .of the Penny Reading Society in connection with the Christmas Hills Mechanics' Institutd took place odn Friday evening last, the 10th inst., and although the weather was unfavourable, was pretty well attended, especially by State school pupils, who filled the seats on one side of the hall front one end to the other, and appeared to" take great interest in, and listened with attention to, the various songs, recitations, and readings. Of the adults-again the ladies were in the majority, which, I rather think, was the cause of a little grumbling on the part of a few of chem.

ANDERSON'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer, and South and East Bourke Record — 17 August 1883
ANDERSON'S CREEK. &nbsp; &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Mr. Newman's meeting on Wednes day night week last was well attended. He was in favor of improvements on the Melbourne bill and general distri bution of the ratepayers money; also, for reducing the publicaii's license to £10. According to show at the meeting it was expected he would have been returned; however, Mr. Stiggants heat him by thirteen votes. Mr. A. Andrews, who took the chair at the meeting, informed theratepayero he would have stond had he been asked; also stating that he would when another opportunity ocoered if the ratepayers solicited him, stand for this division of the Council. Certainly the licenses should be re duced, it is inequitable for this small place to pay £25 when Elthum only lays £10. The road is about to be malde to the Ringwood station. I do not think that it will be much used by us, and the money would be far more profitably spent on thie road to Melbourne. It mining there is ...
