TWILIGHT CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
TWILIGHT CRICKET. Probably the most extraordinary game of jfirst-grade cricket ever seen in Sydney was played at- Manly on Saturday. It was the last game of the season and Gordon was out to boat Manlv at all costs, so as to win tha Club Championship. Manly batted first and knocked up 135. At 20 minutes to 5 Gordon went in and at once went' for the bowling. It was batting against time. An, un derstanding had been arrived at be tween the two captains that only th® batsmen should be allowed to appeal against the light. By ' 5.30 the light was too bad for cricket, but Gordon batted on. After a while the spectators could not see the ?-a.'l? and only the sound of -the ball hitting^ the bat told them what was doing. Many of the spectators around the fence struck matches as a sort of en couragement to the cricketers. Excite ment was at fever heat. - Just on the stroke of 6 Gordon won the game after losing six wickets'. The opprobrious' phrase, 'sunshine cricketers' can not be applied to Gor...

Sp poor mo must get out the wheelbarrow and shovel, and set ofF'on my errand. Tho boys not being at home was the reason I had to do it. The rubbish heap being down the hill, I got there alright, running. I set the barrow down and began to dig. 1 threw the first shovelful in and over the barrow went — a few naughty words, and it was set up again. When I had it nearly full, I started home — uphill— Gee! Talk about a labor of love ! After going a few yards, I s...

MILADY FASHION [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 18 April 1924
MILADY FASHION - - By Nelle Tritton - - This is the season for scarves and shawls, and so Paris, after its craze for things Egyptian and Chinese, looks to Spain for inspiration. Carmen will need to look to her laurels — or her combs, in the coming fashions. For there is a flare for things Spanish, and Spanish shawls, lace, fans, and combs, are affected by many smart women are shown in most extreme modes, especially combs. The last word in combs is high, wide, fan-shaped and showy. It is made of shell ordinarily, but always studded with some sort of semipreci ous jewels. Contrasted with these are the bandeaux of stones, set in silver or gold, or even in white metal, rhinestones, pearls, or any of the ex cellent imitations of precious stones, such as rubies, emeralds, sapphires. Some of these have a small ornament — a coronet, star, or whatever, in front. The bandeau is to be worn low on the head, straight across the brow. MILK AND POTATO CURE.
