BOWLS. SINGLE-HANDED CHAMPIONSHIP WON I3Y \j. WAXMAN, VICTORIA. SENSATIONAL INCIDENT. The last seven matches of the single handed championship of Australia were decided on the Booroodabin green. Brisbane. The first series of the four was marked by an extraordinary inci dent that probably never marked a championship meeting before. It was at the matcli between Cornish (Victoria) and Colledge (Queensland), and was the last of the four contests to be concluded. ! The players were 20 all before the last end was started. When Cornish had bowled his Inst bowl in the final end Colledge lay two. and had won the match. Cornish turned round to con gratulate his opponent, who put down ill's last bowl before shaking hands. In doing so he made a fatal error. The ball travelled fast, and pushed Cornish's ball nearest to the "kitty," and gave the Victorian the game. The spectators (particularly the Queenslanders) were dumfounded. One of the most ex perienced of the Victorians remarked, "The maddes...

She had heard and answered the story of a man's love; had been ottered a home and had refused it; had been in vited to become the mistress of all that splendid domain and had answered that she dare not.

Northcote and Preston Football Club. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 18 April 1914

Nor.thcote and Preston Football Club. To tho Editor. Sir, —I must apologise for trespassing once again on your valuable space, but I cannot allow a few remarks that appeared in "Well-Wisher's" last letter to remain unanswered. I did not impute altogether that he wrote in the interests of the cricket club, but tried to show the disadvantages that prevailed in the past, and would be obtained if the club returned to the park. It showed how luke warm the public are, in the way of sport, when the issue of debentures for the purpose of building a grandstand proved a rank failure. As for not touching 011 the main point, viz., a pub lic meeting of citizens for re-formation, now 1 contend that the members of the club are the proper persons to deal with the matter, and not a body of disinter ested public of Northcote, who are not members and never will be. Now is the time for "Well-Wisher" to induce people of his way of thinking to pur chase tickets, also take one himself, and so endeavour to...
