Fishermen Seek Fresh Fortunes. Local fishermen, have been up against adverse conditions in the following of their avocation. Fish, even when sought some distance out *have been scarce, but a circumstance which interferred with their enter prise has been the continuous southerly wind which has blown. This greatly interferes with success ful netting operations. On Tuesday last Messrs. Johnson, Jenkins and a party put off for fresh fields, taking their boats and nets to the long reef, off Werribee.

A vehicle has been despatched, and by this means their catch will be conveyed to the Little River railway station, and thence by rail to market. Should the venture not prove suc cessful no doubt the fishermen will return sooner than anticipated.

They will-be-smiling before long. Charlie Kelly made- 34.runs by good, steady, cricket. He was bat ting against great odds, and he restrained himsel...
