SPORT AND PASTIME. CRICKET. On New Year's Day a team representing Leongatha jour neyed to Inverloch for the pur pose of meeting a team from Tarwin Lower. The match proved to be very interesting, and a close finished was witnessed, Leon gatha being victorious by a small margin of 24 runs. The visiting cricketers were out for more than cricket, for on the arrival of the drag from Leongatha the first thought was for the water, and all had a dip in the briny with the exception of one: who remarked that seeing he was not gifted with scales he was quite satisfied to stay on the shore. Dinner was then indulged in, and aftpr the 18 mile drive and a dip in the salty this part of the performance proved to be very necessary. The match commenced at 3 p.m., which was rather late, but some of the Tarwin players were acci dently hindered through mis arrangements. Mesley 55, Bond 20, Mogg 14, and Richards S did best for Leong itha; whilst for Tarwin'Lower the chief scorers were Secomb 24, Thomas 14...
