The Origin of Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 16 September 1892

The Origin of Cricket. CRICKETERS of this generation would be surprised to see the game as it used tobe played a century ago. For instance, the stumps used to be one foot high and two feet wide : There were only two upright stumps, with one across the top. O. course many straight balls silmply passed through the wicket without disarranging it, and the batsmar was not out : and a rising ball would pass at a very safe distance over the top. All the bowling was underhand, and did not as a rule get up very high; this had its ellect on the kind of bat that was used. There are one or two specimens still in existence, which show that in those days they were curved, so that a ball which we should now call "a grub " could be hoisted up into the air safely over the heads of the fields. Strangest of all, there was a hole dug in the ground, close to the wicket, into which the bats man put the end of his bat: and when he ran the way to run him otn was to get the ball into the whole I elfo the ba...

The Broken [?] Strike. BROKEN HILL, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 16 September 1892

'Tlhe Broken IU11I triic. BaOKES ? ILL, Saturday. INTENSE excitement prevailed round the town hall until ahlut 3 o'clock this morning, a:id though the cr wed made no sign of rushing the buillir-g it was thought expedient to have a strong "pOse" of constablles at each entrance, and a large number within the building ready for inummediate action. When things became quieter everybody seemed to realize how narrowly a conflict had been averted. The movements of the police were carried out with all possible despatch, so as to avoid meeting the crowd, but this was nat practicable, unless the train were run direct on to the mine. Had this been done trouble would have been averted. What sur prised everyone was the extraordinarily short time it took the crowd to run from the goods slation to Sulphide street. It was quickly seen that the train would not pull up at the distant station, and then almost to a man the throng, which by that time comprised about 000 men, turned and ran north ward, an...

Riding a Fence. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 16 September 1892

Ritling a Fence. AN incident which is certainly rather amusing occurred one night last week at a locality not many miles from here which is particularly noted for the so briety of its inhabitants, and boasts of a town hall and creamery. A gentleman having strayed from the fold of teetota. lism so far as to deign to look on the wine when it was red became in a so,ne. what venturesome mood and proceeding to a paddock with a saddle and bridle harnessed up what he thought to be a raw colt in order to test his ability as a horseman. All went well until some young men who aere returning home rather late were horror struck to see what appeared to them to bea madman whip. ping and spurring as if in hot pursuit by some dreaded foe. Fully cognizant of the proverb which assigns to prudence a higher place than valorthesegentlemen decided to pass by afar off, but one of the number recognising the voice of this peculiar individual as that of an old friend forthwith went to see what was the matter...
