Sport and Pastime. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 1 March 1899
Sport and Pastime. The latest thing in golfs, comes from America. Itis called a 'grassie.' Tho head is shaped like a mashie, made very heavy and the lower part ; of the head cut into thick teeth, like a rake. There arc six of these big teeth, and the object of the club is to rake through the long gross, and set to the ball without wasting 'as much strength as an ordinary club requires in a like place. It is used in heavy clumps of grass. We imagine, however, that in prac tice it will be found that the ball hits the edge of one of the teeth, and goes at right angles.' ' v At the end of next month E. A. Pearson purposes making a record -ride between Melbourne and Sydney. At present he holds the Sydney to Melbourne record, viz., 576 miles, in 75 hours 5min.

Commercial. The 'Advocate' Office, Tuesday evening. The potato market this morning was in one of those lifeless moods that seem in separable from tho early part of the week, and ' there was virtually no potato quotation. One or two of the dealers stated they would . be prepared to give up ' to £8, but would not go any higher, owing to the absence of Sydney advices. During the afternoon the same conditions pre vailed, the only sale of potatoes that came under notice being aload for the West Coast at 8/10/. 'This has really no sympathy with the broader, issue of export to the ' Sydney market. Per ss Penguin, leav ing, or due to leave, to-morrow, the North ' \Vestern Fanners' Association ship about 340 sacks potatoes, for transhipment to \Fremantle (Western Australia). Some are tender the impression that deliveries will not be heavy this week, owing to the rain, bUt we incline to the opinion that, as it is too wet for grain carting and other hor Vtot Operations, producers will go on di...
