The Advertiser PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. "Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy Country's, Thy God's, and Truth's." FRIDAY. APRIL 3rd, 1885. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 3 April 1885

PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MORNING. "Let all the ends tholu aim'st at be thy Country's, Thy God's, and Trutlb's." FRIDAY. APRIL 3rd, 1885. AUSTRniA-iW colonists: are . too much absorbed with the duty of protecting their ows- shores fromnt the dan gers inuidertal to schemes of foreign aggression in the Pacific, to follow with more than a languid interest the development of German colonial policy whichwas being industriously prose cuted at the same time in other parts of :the world. It would hardly be reasonable to expect the residents 'in Victoria and Queensland to transfer the intelligent curiosity felt about the latest move of Germany in New Gisines or New Britiun to a scramble that was simultaneously proceeding for the possession of obscure places on the pestiferous coasts of Central Af rica. The expansion of the colonial empire of Germany in that region of the globe would have been welcomed as a most useful employment of Prince Bismarck's energies, if it had diverted his attention fr...

Goldmining near Euroa. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 3 April 1885

Goldmlnning near Euron. Messrs Maddock and Folkes have been for some years prospecting at tihe head of Dry Creek, about a quarter-of-a mile from Air Mead's Unee claim, Strath bogie, about 27 miles from Euroa, on the same line known as Sherring's workings,, where many thousands of ounces of gold were obtained some years ago. The mode of operations is by ground sluicing, and from the quality of the ground which has been proved they have many years of payable work before them. The result of last fortnight's washing amounted to £180. The face shows 20 feet of alluvial, carrying good gold throughout. "Much attention has been attracted to the lo cality, and a large company is being floated on the Melbourne market to thoroughly test tljp mineral wealth of the district. The general opinion is that the gold-bearing drift has been carried down from the adjoining hills, and that when properly developed a wide field will be opened for mining enterprise. The shares of the company, which has a ca...

Public Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 3 April 1885

Publle lMeetinr. A largely-:attended public meeting was held on Saturday., afternoon last, at Mr Thus. Goddeu's residence, Moglonemhy, for the purpose of taking steps to secure the appointment of a local post-master and the transit of mails between that place and Euroa at least twice a week. The meeting was a thoroughly represen tative one, and the farmers present were apparently in earnest over the matter. WMr Win. Neolands was voted to the chair. Apologies were received, from several landowners resident in the pro posed postal radius for non-attendance, in consequence of pressing engagements - elsewhere, but promnisig hearty co-opera tion in whatever steps the meeting thought necessary to attain the desired end, and altogether a unanimity of opinion was exhibited, together with a strongly expressed determination to force the Government to crant the boon sought, which augurs well for the speedy realisation of the wished-for end.

Screams. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 3 April 1885

Screams. There is rather a large demand in screamns just now. Not that there is any falling off in sigls, but the latter are sta tionary, while the former are " looking up." We are referring, of course, not to the. scream of priyate life, but to that of the fiction writer. Not that 'a heroine ever screams at anything so vulgar as a mouse, or, a hero at anything at' all,. even if he is being flayed alive with red-hot pincers; but there are other situations in novel life where a scream is imperative. There is the prolonged scream of agony, which is all that Flo rence cari utter when she receives the fatal, convincing .proof that. Harold is faithless. There is .the flute-like, in expressibly soft and tender scream with which Kitty throws herself into the arms of Adolphus,. her long lost Adolphus," who left her in a tweed. suit'and'with one half a-crown, but has :come back, as she (and we) always knew lhe. would, covered with war medals. ' and . positively'. inundated with the needful."...
