Cricket. LICENSED VICTUALLERS V. MAUDE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900

Cricket. LICENSED VICTUALLERS V. ' MAUDE. I On Saturday, the Maude Cricket Club sent a team to play the Victual- ' lers on the local Park Oval. The Vic- 1 tuallers had an easy win, but fortune ' seemed to favor them. The visitors ! certainly had very bad luck, their men being run out and a couple of their best bats bowled first ball. The match commenced at 10.-J0, and by one o clock Maude, whose captain, S. McMahon, won the toss and elected to bat, were disposed of for 99. D. Murphy played assplendid innings for 33, whilst G. Ayre gave a good performance for 24. McMahon was next scorer with 12. Proctor was their most successful op ponent with the ball, whilst Dillon, Darcliy and Callaway each secured two wickets. The Victuallers, cap tained by J. Callaway, then went to the wickets, Dillon and Beveridge first The former put up 61 in 110 time, hit ting one sixer, one fiver, and eight fourers. When he retired his partner had scored but 5, but the latter played almost through the inning...

FARM AND DAIRY. ORIGINAL ARTICLES. POINTS OF GOOD HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900

FARM AND DAIRY. ORIGINAL ARTICLES. POINTS OF GOOD HORSES. The heaviest draught horse, even, will sell very much better if ho has good style and action. Select animals with round body, deep chest, short baci, strong loin# high withers, arched neck, small head, slender and medium sized ear, prominent eye, of brown color and wide nostril. The logs should be strong and well pro portioned, muscular as they approach the body, and bony and flat from knee to postern. Avoid a flat foot. The bottom of tho foot should be well arched and pro vided with a large frog. Having selected brood mares of this type, mate them with the best thoroughbred of the breed you have chosen that is available. When breeding to a grade, however well he may show the pointsofthe blood predominating, you can never tell what you will get. Do not breed or mate your mares too young, It is a well-settled principle in all stock breeding that the best results areobtained by raising stock from animals that are well matured. ...

Sporting. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900

S|-OI'till£. [By Stehuxg.] After the conclusion of the Licensed Victuallers' meeting 011 Friday even ing, Mr Thos. Mclntyre, of the Red Lion, bet Mr J. Dillon, of the Criterion £5 to £2 thq-t 'Coquette,', owned by a Mr McICenzie, of Deniliquin^ raced 011 the new racecourse. In connection with the above, old files of local papers contain the follow ing : — HajT Jockey Club Handicap. — Sweep of 5 sovs., with 300 added, run on the 8th. of March, with the follow ing result : — W. McKenzie's Coquette 1, F. Darchy's Uncas 2, T. Mclntyre's Mystery 3. Mr. C. W, Simson, judge ; J. Keighran, starter; aud 11. Jackson, Hon. Sec. Both Mr. Mclntyre and Mr. Dillon are genuine sjwrtsmen, and a shady trick from either of them would never be found. But we consider the bet was not a legal one so far as racing goes, for this reason. — Rule 1 of the Racing Rules says : — 'In all bets there must be a possibility to win when the bet is made you cannot win when you can not lose.' Mr. Mclntyre was evi dentl...

Light and Shade. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900

light and Shade. (By ' Hemixgton.') ', What a jolly time we are going to have qt the close of the year.' Not only do we usher in the New Year and the New Century — but the birth of a Nation. Never in our life's history (be it long or short) will we have the opportunity of witnessing the like again. Hay is on full stretch to make the Commonwealth Celebrations the epoch of our lives. The Mayor (Hail j to mm) is going to stay witli us and | preside ; also a large number of his energetic workers in this Colossal Treat. We are going to have a brand new Brass Band, especially formed (I think) for the occasion — with a tip top bandmaster. We are going to have a Monster Procession on the evening of the last day (of the year, of course, I mean) with torches, colored lights, horsemen and footmen, and music galore. Just enough to whet our appetite for New Year's Day (though the youngsters will hardly need it) for the gigantic Children's Pic-nic, and the Moonlight Concert at night. I hope the c...

Mr. James Ashton and the War. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900

Mr. James Ashton and the War. Some time sinco a letter appeared in our columns in which a contributor signing himself ' Hay ' drew atten tion to what he conceived to be the political vagaries of Mr. James Ashton ; who had just announced himself as a candidate for the Federal Parliament. Mr. Asiitox, - in con descending to reply to that letter, dre« largely on his stores of sarcasm and indulged in the heroics. But as we were told by our contemporary the other day that Mr. Ashton was re garded as a legal light and a past master in the realm of argument, we need scarcely remind such an eminent authority that sarcasm is not argu ment and flights in the heroics prove nothing beyond the obtuseness of the man who indulges in them. Sarcasm is a good weapon, but like the Austra lian boomerang it sometimes rebounds, falling at the feet of him who threw it. The use of the sword of sarcasm is not confined to Mb. AsHtox. But this is all in the way of preliminary. To come to the really gerious pa...

Destruction of a Sailing Vessel. ON FIRE IN MID-OCEAN Melbourne, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900

Destruction or a Sailing Vessel. ON FIEE IN MID-OCEAN Melbourne, Tuesday. 1 A singular story of fire at «? sea was related by the master and the chief officer of the barque Ben Avon, which reached Hobson's Bay from N ew Y ork. From the account furnished it seems bevond doubt that a fine merchantman whose identity cannot be ascer tained, met with destruction by fire in mid-ocean, whilst the fate of her officers and crew is shrouded in mystery. Although the Ben Avon bore down to witliin two cables lengths of ? the burning vessel, all that could be seen was that the lat ter was in the last stages of demolition by fire. Not a sign of human life was revealed, and what had become of the crew of the ill-starred and mys terious vessel could only be a matter of conjecture. The ship had not a stick remaining, hut flames were still issuing fiercely from her decks whilst the air was laden with ominous and almost overpowering odours of kerosene, which would unfor tunately appear to have formed a...

SKETCHER SHELLS ARE BURSTING. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 10 December 1900

SKETOHER SHELLS AEE BURSTING. . ' I rather think/ observed an infantry { officer recently, when chatting about the struggle with tho Boers, 'that the reason why one so seldom hears much about what are soldier's feelings when he ad vances against the enemy, is that at such a time he really does not himself know how he feels. There is no opportunity for him to calmly analyse his sensations ; and, what with the hurry of the forward movement, the roar of the guns, and the stunning explosions of the shells, the man's brain is so confused that it is only after the fight iB over that he is in a con dition to ask himself what his impressions are. ' Of course, I do not mean to suggest that the man's mind is in a state of chaos. On the contrary, he is excessively alert to catch his officer's orders and instantly obey them. But I can give you an in stance to illustrate my contention. I re member, after a sharp fight, coming across a man who had performed pro digious deeds, lying full length, r...
