Continual patching has bee going on there and still the bridge is ft from satisfactory, so that the decis;ion zebuild will meet with agreement. It he been decided to releck at the Seven Creel, also. These bridlges are on the line of whi is termed "through" traflfc, and on thi account a special vote of £430 was obtaine to help the Council in the matter.

Perhaps they would hIe surprised when it was all over bat locals, of course, would not like to evet suggest a boast of what they can do in the hour of battle. At present,from an associa lion point of view-, Longwood is equal to Earon, with an unbeaten record. On thlb account the meeting with Euroa will I.e at item of great anticipations.
