CORRESPONDENCE. MOUNT BRYAN EAST, December 15. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 19 December 1879

CORRESPONDENCE. fFrom our own Correspondents.) MOUNT BRIAN EAST, December 15. The hay harvest is nearly finished, although we have had some exceedingly boisterous weather which has delayedit very much. The hay crop has not turned out very heavy one as it was snort in most places. 1 do not think it will exceed twenty-five hundred weight to tbe acre on the average. The wheat is ripening very fast now and is looking first das*. There is a little rust in tbe crop in this part bat not enough to injara the wheat as it is too forward. Tbe reaping will commence in about a fortnight some farmers talk about this week. I think they will begin before it is ripe. We have been visited with swarms of grasshoppers, they did not do much damage they-U appeared to go southward acd may they never return again. Great indignation is felt here by tbe farmers against others who made a brutal assault on another farmer named Best, they hammered and kicked him in a most shameful and disgraceful manner, becaus...

Cricket Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 19 December 1879

Cricket Notes. Br 'Quiz.' The Burra club have played another match, or partly done so, and are likely I think to lose it. They are very unfortunate this ceison, thev have onlv Dlaved three matches, two they lost, and are now likely to lose tbe third, tnat is if the True Blues all torn up to-morrow. I think it is now quite evident there ought to be a change in tbe personel of ths team. Many are of opinion that Wheare for one ought to be left out for a few matches. It is quite clear he cannot bowl with any effect now, for after lact Satur Jay's exhibition, when all the bays played him with ea*e and confidence, what can he expect to do against the East Adelaides on Brx'ng Day. J. Herbert ought also to be left out for a time. The match on Boxing Day between an eleven from the East Adelaide club and a like number of the Burra' club will no doubt be largely attended, as it is very seldom a town team visits the Burra. I hear also a match is to be played here on the 29th inat, between the M...

The chief feature of last week's play was the bowling of J. Blott and R. White for the juniors, the former com ing eff with ?n average of 6 wickets for 30 runs, four of wl'ich he got in one over.
