Sport and Pastime. ' Cycling enthusiasts in Devonport evi dently realise the truthfulness of /the axiom, ' Many hands make light' work.' The racing track on the recreation ground having become encumbered with 'pig weed,', ways and means of clearing away the objectionable growth for the Easter meetmg have hod to - be discussed. Members of the bike club and the sports committee put their heads together, and soon devised a way out of the difficulty. Volunteers to use the spade and hoe. were readily . forthcoming and each resolving to 'do. his whack,' the weed is fast disappearing. The results of championship contests notwithstanding, there still remains a diversity of opinion 'as to who is the axeman possessing the greatest stamina and skill in the manly art. J. Buckingham has issued a challenge to Martin to peg away at the timber for a goodly- stake. ' Buckie' inevitably means business when he gets these chopping notions in his head. . ?

Commercial. The "Advocate" Office, Saturday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 27 February 1899

Commercial. -.-The 'Advocate' Office, , Saturday evening. The Sydney steamer arrangements last evening completely upset all calculations. Great indignation was expressed by ship pers, and when it is taken into account that 8,300 sacks potatoes in round num bers were shut out, there is certainly room for complaint. It is generally said that the companies have entered into an arrangement to leave punctually to the advertised time, but, if such is the case, the least that might have been done was to have notified shippers. We feel confi dent that if the boats left to the advertised time it would be betterforallconcerned, and in this we are borne out by most of the ship pers. Complaint was made by the steamer agents that they had been lying at the wharves all day on Thursday and part of yesterday doing nothing, but we may ask whose fault is this ? That shippers have hung back is without doubt, but the steamship companies have the whip hand, and if they definitely decide to leave at the ...
