Presbyterlan Church, KarraumemuM. The members of the Iarramomus Presbyterian Church held their annual tea-meeting on Friday evening last, which proved a great success.

MOGLONEMBY JOTTINGS [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 3 April 1885
MOGLOT i1nY£ JOTTIXGaS T always like to relate deeds of heroism, particularly when the heroic deed is performed by one of the fair sex. A lady, an intimate friend of mine, a few days ago was returning from a visit to a friend.. The fact that she was returning from a visit is sutli eient guarantee that it was towards the close of the day-in point of fact old King Sol had just. hid his face below the western horizon. When about half-way home she noticed a. black object stretched directly across the path at her feet, said object being a monster of a snake. Allowing for excitement under such circumstances. we will place his snakeship's length at four feet.' Now many ladies would have screamed out, and set off on a good round go-as-you-please rate for the starting point of their journey:; some would have stood spell-bound, unable to move forward or to beat a hasty retreat ; others, again, would have stood and screeched with such vigor that not only the snake, but any other living creatu'...
