When, however, he obtained a good chance, it was amusing to see .him. scatter the small boys in his endeavours to snake a bee-line for his opponent's goal, followed by cries of " Go for him, Waxy." . Waxy, the New Long wood man,- always respoinded faithfully, but being. on. one occasion impeded by his wet moleskins-the result of .previous encounters' with Earle-he -could ` not reach his opponent in time to save the goal..

Euroa Cricket Club. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser — 18 September 1885

lEuros Cricket (€:Isb. The season 1885-6 of the .E.C.C. was inaugurated on Wednesday, when a goodly number of members rolled up, to show that they still had' the energy and desire to foster their favourite pastime. The result was a good' afternoon's sport, and very useful practice. Many new and use ful playing meilbers are being- added to the club this season, and when the num= bers go up at the end of the season, we think the menlbers will not be ashamed of the position it will hold. The club will also be engaged in. a series of cup matches in connection with several North Eastern' clubs, and the secretary is now endeavouring to - arrange a complete list of Saturday matches for 3' months fromu 1st October ; also second eleven matches where and when possible for Wednesdays.

TO THE EDITOR. SIR,--~ ay I claim a slight indulgence to' reply to a letter in your issue of the 4th inst, signed"-Verity," wherein I am charged.with making myself conspicuous. I have no ob-' jections to that, so that I do not make my self ridiculous.. I am also charged with making persistent and malignant attacks on Mr John Gall, who acted as valuer; which I deny. I never saw Mr Gall but once; I thought him a gentleman, and treated him as such, but I soon discovered.that his views on valuing were erroneous. He had three crotchets in his head to base his calculations on, namely, license, lense, and freehold •the license to lie Value ild lg,- ' saosN -no Zn creased, and freehold ditto. Now, sir, the only advantage that I can discover between a license an; I a lease is, -as soon as poor Cockie attains his lease, he is off to the money lender to mortgage to pay, off the storekeeper, aid the interest and the rent crippling lim in the future. If that is any advantage, I fail to see what ...
