TWO GIRLS DROWNED. ADELAIDE, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
TWO GIRLS DROWNED. ADELAIDE. Monday. At Port Willunga a number of girls were bathing on the beach, when one of them, Cissie Martin, managed to get just beyond her depth. One of her companions, named Maud Saunders, went to her assistance, but the strong under flow which exists a short dis- tance from the shore quickly carried the unfortunate girls out to sea. Both were drowned, before a boat was able to reach them.

BOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
(By Leader.) The L.D.C. published the handicaps and draw for their club matches during the week, and I think with one or two ex- ceptions the match committee got through their task well. In the Pairs Forbes and Paine are treated somewhat badly, having to stand a point to Joscolyne and Bearup, who cer- tainly should be a point or two further back, especially after the form Joscelyne has been showing us this season. The Whitfeld trophy looks the best of good things for J. T. Wilson (3 behind), he being a much more experienced performer than any of his opponent's, who are mostly this season's players. In the Champion I do not see the names of Thurstun, Gaylor, Wilkins, Heazlewood, and others, and I regret very much to note this fact, as it will take a lot of interest out of the game, to say nothing of the experience the younger players will lose by not being able to compete against the cracks. With Thurstun and Co. out of the way, Boyd, Croft, or Joscelyne should provide the champion f...

CRICKET. &nbsp; CONSULT A. W. BIRCHALL AND SONS FOR CRICKET MATERIAL. TASMANIA v. NEW SOUTH WALES. WIN FOR THE VISITORS. &nbsp; HOBART,. Tuesday. &nbsp; The cricket match Tasmania v. New &nbsp; South Wales was concluded to-day, the &nbsp; weather being perfect . The second in- &nbsp; nings of the locals was opened auspi- &nbsp; ciously, but a rot set in after the fall of the first wicket, Savigny, Burn, Gate- house, M'Allen, and Hammond going out in quick succession. Hale and Pickett &nbsp; played well for their runs, and Windsor &nbsp; was in a long time for his 18. Unfortu- &nbsp; nately, Eady was absent through indis- position, his side therefore losing his bat- ting and the advantage of his bowling. &nbsp; The innings closed for a total of 140. This left the visitors only 113 to get to &nbsp; win, but they lost six wickets before they &nbsp; accomplished the task. The men of t...

THE HOLIDAYS AT ALBERTON. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 3 January 1900
THE HOLIDAYS AT ALBERT'ON. &nbsp; Our correspondent writes:-With the exception of a few scratch matches at cricket and races for the youngsters the Christmas week has passed very quietly. A scratch match between New River end of the field and the township players resulted in a victory for the former, and two matches be- tween married and single men turned out in favour of the benedicts. Sir Henry Thompson describes natural aperient waters as vastly superior to arti- ficial solutions, however skilfully prepared; and "Hunyadi Janos" as "the most con- centrated of the saline group." Annual sale six million bottles. Signature, Andreas Saxlehner, on label secures genuineness.--2.* EAT JONES' IXL JAMES &nbsp;

BY-MUNICIPAL ELEC'T'ION. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; DELORAINE, Tuesday. For the vacancy in the Municipal Council caused by the death of Mr. A. Oliver there is only one candidate de- finitely anounced, viz., Mr. R. G. Horne, and, as already stated, he will in all probability have a walk-over. Mr. W. Abey has been asked to stand, but he has declined, as he considers his health is not sufficiently restored to give the necessary attention to public matters that would be required of him.
