When Noss Was a Colt Told by Not Out in The Referee last Wed .resday : 'It is not so far off thirty years since Frank Iredale and Sydney Gregory — who has not yet got into the flannels for Waverley — first appeared tosether in the colors of New South Wales. It was in one of .the odds matches against Queensland in 1889, the home team consisting of fifteen. It is getting on for ^s years since mat matcn, on the Albert Ground at Brisbane, then the home ground of the Queensland Association. It was the first official match with Queensland for 24 years, though a private team, comprised largely of members of the Carlton Club, played a few matches there in 1884. I believe that every one of the cicven which figured in the 1889 match, with one exception, is alive. Their names arc : S. P. Jones, Arthur Gregory, Gco. Cowper, H. Hiddlcstone, S. E. Gregory, F.

MY NEW LID. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 28 October 1916
MY NEW LID. I bought a hat the other day. But not without the Bravest fears, It might appear a trifle Ray And wouldn't suit my style of ears— That's why I hate to throw away A lid I've worn for many years. I scarce had stepped into the street. into tne sunlight s gaudy glare. Than everyone I chanced to meet Gazed at me with derisive stare. I blushed from forehead to my feet. And thought those folks were most unfair. A thousand other men I saw With lids as new as new could be, But no one seemed to drop his jaw, Or smile like each one did at me. I must confess it made me raw And paralysed my dignity. At last I met a woman who Though freely curved was far from fat, And when she joined the laughing crew I asked her what she giggled at. She said : 'Excuse me if I do — You've left the price tag on your hat.'
SCORN THE SHARK. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 28 October 1916
SCORN THE SHARK. This rude man-eater of the seas (The shark he is by common title) Who amputates you at the knees. Or takes your head (a section vital). Is but a coward, books agree. Who flees when any one defies him. And, as we hate all cowards, we Should all refuse to recognise him ! If I should meet this creature base When I am bathing, minus clothing, I'd quickly show him to hi.-, face My deep, unutterable loathing : In accents haughty I would say, 'To more congenial climates go you; Your manners pain me ! Go away ! I certainly refuse to know you ! ' 'Doggone it ! I bet if it hadn't been for this shark scare I could have sold these bathing* trunks just as easy as nothing.' 'Remember. John Henry Jones, if I so into the water you've got to hold me up. I can't swim a stroke.'

They Ran the Show 'Mr. Jack Portus was manager of the team from Sydney. At that time he was one of the lights of the Carlton Club, whose players ap peared to hold a lien on places in the teams ?which fought out (he big matches against Vic torian and English combinations. Mr. Portus some time later became the successor to Dave Gregory as hon. secretary of the New South Wales tncKet .association, and was one ot the prime movers in bringing into existence the old Australian Cricket Council, whose interests were sacrificed to the vested interests of the unconstitutional though otherwise most ad mirable cricket institutions, which had carried on some of the functions appertaining to the predecessor of the Board of Control. The old Council had a very fine lot of notable men as sociated with it, but, unfortunately for it, they were mostly men who had also been associated more or less with the fortunes of the two big grounds, and when it came to determining that a new and thoroughly constit...
