General Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 April 1898

General Sporting. The Englishmen will not receive a very en thusiastic welcome home. Hill and Jones of South Australia secured the season's batting and bowling averages re spectively. The Australian eleven to visit England may not be as strong as desirable. Several who would bo the first to be selected would not be able to cot away. Jones was no-balled for bending hia arm and many a nihii is black-balled for ' bending hia elbow.' Jones by the way, had to ' bend, or break' 'em. In three matches running Hill compiled the century for his colony. The McLaren-Power wedding ' England and Australia' and Englacd won the match al right. Stoddart thinks an English Rugby team would astonish Australia. Well, we are waiting to be amazed at some sport or other. Tho Grafton Convent School boys defeated a similar team from Maclean at Grafton on Wed nesday.

Our South Arm Letter. Strain Chops.— It is many years since the yearold oano orops looked as well as they do at present. The absence of frost last winter is ono reason of the luxuriant appearance of the fields, and freedom from disease is another. In isolated patches of Rappoo or Grey Fiji thero are traces of gumming to be seen, farmers can look forward to a good cutting this season.
