Bunny in the Street. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 28 August 1901

Bunny in the Street. To see a bunny cutting through the streets of Bowral for all he's worth is a rather unusual occurrence, but the fact that Sunday witnessed the little episode goes to prove that this town is still a trifle ooun tryfierd, notwithstanding all efforts to give it a city-like appearance. The little incident transpired shortly before 12 o'clock-on the morning of Sunday last, when a kangaroo dog was seen chasing a bare along Bong Bong-street# past the' Free Press office, aud through the town, suddenly turning the Royal Hotel corner, through the railway gates and into Oxley's paddook like a streak of lightning where bunny soon found a safe retreat amongst the shrubbery. He was doubtless in a rather collapsable condition, and glad the raoe for life was at an end. The incident oreated quite a seusation, a number of bystanders also joining in the unexpected chase. r;

Football. SEMI FINALS. BOWRAL v. MOSS VALE. The above teams met on the Recrea tion . ground, Mittagong, on Saturday last, and after an evenly-contested game, resulted in a win for Bowral by 8 points to 7. The day was cool with an inclina tion to rain, seeming to suit the footballer " to a tea j " and although the ground was slippery from the previous rain, a good game was the result. Both teams were in full strength, and used their powers to the utmost. The Bowral play was not up to expectation, and at one part of the game it seemed as if they would have a poor chance of winning, £ut the players livened up and kept tneir opponents back, although there were some close attempts ; Casey and Melville putting in good runs to break the strong defence. For Bowral Adcock, Huggett, Ritchings, and Barnes passed well, and Rutherford upheld his reputation with [ some tricky runs ; Jones was, as usual, sure in his collaring, and on every occa sion "grassed " his opponent when oppor tunity favore...
