VISIT OF PRESTON CRICKETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 16 April 1909

VISIT OF PRESTON CRICKETERS. A term of cricketerr wepre.enting the Preston club arrived on Friday l,Ist and were mot at the station by President A. E. Stillman and Secretary T. Ward, re presenting the WVandcrere' Cricket Club. On arriving at Aloxandra the vtsitora were located at the various hotels. Ie the afternoon a two days' match w?s opened on the old recreation ground before a fairly large attendance, and concluded on Satu-day, after a rery interesting game, in favor of the local t am. though the -isitors won on the first innings. Owing to an in dividual taking the score-book away and keeping it-no doubt thinking he had more right to it than the secretary-we are unable to give an accou-t of the match. In the evening the members of the. Wanderers' club entertained their Preston friends in the Oddfellows' Hull, Mr A. E. Stillman cecupied the chair and a most enjoyable evening wats spent in speech and song. The severtl toasts proposed were enthusiastically received. Solve excellen...

The Art of Flying. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra and Yea Standard and Yarck, Gobur, Thornton and Acheron Express — 16 April 1909

The Art of Flying. It would appear from the April number of "Life" magazine, which has just reached us, that the flying machine has been so far advanced that we may consider flying as a sport. Wilbur Wright, the most successful experimenter, who has broken all records of aeroplane flight, tells frankly of the difil. oulties to he encountered, but speaks enthusiastically of the joys and oxhiliarating sensations of aviation. His articlh, which is freely illustrated, is one of the most in. teresting and most informative that we have seen, Another exrellent contribution to " Lifo." and a useful one, is the first of a series of articles by MIls Beatrice (Grimshaw, the well known au=horess, who writes on the beauties of New ulaines. and promises next month to tell next month how big money may dJe made in that i.a'and. Charles Nutt.ll, the`Australian artist, hns a dig at American ideas of sport, andt declares thit Americ., the boasted nlard of the Free. is no, half so free as his own emitt...
