THE PLAYERS. Among the winners there were several who did useful work, notwithstanding the disadvan tages they had to contend with in the form of a muddy and slippery playing area, and 'a heavy, sodden ball. C. Mans fieldj perhaps, stood out as the best player on the ground, his mfl.vkiner. kickiner. and iuderment being of a high standard ot merit, Wicks. also might fairly claim some credit for the victory in that he kicked thros of the goals registered. HeSernan was another useful member, his play being full of tenacity, and his snap-shooting phenominal. Of the juniors, J. Medbury stood out alone, and gave great promise of developing into n player of some merit. Barnett gave seve ral flashes of clever and effective work, and others who rendered good service were : — C, Ryan, T. Stanfield, Darcy, McMullen, C. Bratt, Stanton, and A. Medbury. For the losers, the Hay brothers were most conspicuous through out. L. Hay, while carrying the cares of captainship, found' op portunity to do s...

He was tracked and -arrested at Macaroni Station, 10- miles from Normanton. ' . '

A HEAT WAVE. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 18 May 1910
A HEAT WAVE, A curious change in the atmos phere occurred in Franklin yes terday afternoon, which was accepted by many as an indica tion that the earth, had entered the tail of the comet. A keen, breeze prevailed throughout the morning, but early in the after noon the atmosphere became warm and anltrv. and tho fovmar brightness of the sky' faded into a peculiar dimness. A warm wind sprang up, and continued till late in the evening. Such an atmospherical condition at this period of the year is a rarity in these- parts, and, perhaps, for want of a better reason, not a few are attributing it to the precence of Halley's comet. News was ' received from Lovett, 'Huonville, and Geeve ston to the effect that the change was noticed in those places also.

THE COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 18 May 1910
THE COMET, The comet, after perihelion, in- . creased its angular distance from the sun until a few days ago,, rising earlier each day. Now, however, as its approaches the earth the curve of. the orbit brings it nearer and nearer to the lino ho-fc-ttroa-n +Vin ai-in anrl oa i»f.Vi Consequently the angular dis tance is decreasing, and it is rising later each day — and nearer to the time of the sun's rising. To-morrow, according to the scientists, the earth, comet, and sun will be in the same line, and if the comet's tail. is 14,000,000 miles in length the earth will pass through the tail of it, for at that distance will the nucleus pass the earth. The official 'time given for the rising of the comet to-morrow morning is two minutes past 7, and the sun i3 timed to rise 15 minutes later. / ?
