HORSHAM, Tuesday.-Mr. A. Geue, of Wartook, had a lively encounter with an emu the other day. He was engaged in erecting a fence in a scrubby part of his land, when a large emu came close to him. A sheep dog attacked the bird, but was   soon rendered hors de combat. The emu then attacked Mr. Geue, who experienced   great difficulty in driving it off.  

ANDERSON'S CREEK. -- Robert Wilson,             who was remanded for stealing from the premises of Mr. Stigauts, was, at the     Court of Petty Sessions on Monday, sen-   tenced to six months' imprisonment, with hard labour.--A public meeting of the rate-     payers of the Warrandyte Riding, shire of       Templestowe, was held on Moday night re- specting the proposed work on the Mel-

bourne Hill. If Government assistance could be obtained a deviation road was con- sidered to be cheaper and more beneficial as then both the Deep Creek and Melbourne hills could be avoided.--The settlement with       the private property owners is now nearly completed, and the proposed electric scheme, in which the Evelyn tunnel on the      

Yarra, at the Pound Bend, will be utilised,     will shortly be promulgated.
