Miepoll and Brangee. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 10 April 1885
Miepoll and Brangee. &nbsp; The rain which we experienced here on Sunday last was welcomed by the &nbsp; farmers with beaming smiles and glad- some hearts, the grass is beginning to &nbsp; look green in most of the paddocks, and the ploughing is in full swing. The need &nbsp; of water was greatly felt ; in some in- stances ; the farmers had to travel three miles for the precious fluid. Mr and Mrs Kennedy invited a number of their friends and acquaintances on &nbsp; Tuesday evening to a dance. About 30 couples attended, and dancing was kept up with right good vigor till midnight, at which hour an adjournment for re- freshments took place. After doing jus- tice to the good things provided, dancing was again resumed and vigorously kept up till broad daylight, when all took &nbsp; their departure, evidently well pleased with the night's amusement. The music for the occasion was supplied by Mr M. Kennedy (violin) and Mr J. Kennedy (concerti...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 17 April 1885
TO TIHE EDITOR. SIR-I have been vaitinlg 7·crypatiently. and nii: somewhat surprised' that no one has publicly noted the vcrygreat improve ment in the Euroa Advertiser since it has been in the hands.of the-present pro prictors. If the laper kee1ps on improving it will doubtless largely increase its circu lation and become what it bids fair to be -the best- journal on the North-Eastern line. I have no isli to soft-soap the proprietors, but-I decidedly think that " the right men are in the right place," and deserve great credit as enterprising journalists.. Trusting you will insert this in your next issue, ". I am, &c., EUROAITE. Euroa, 15 .14.| 85 .
