THE NATIONAL WEALTH. Some people seem to think.thai man ufacturers represent the most import ant interests.

Agriculture Repre sents the original foundation of all tho progress of tho world. Lord Lans downe, in a recent speech delivered in England, said:—"After all, agricul ture is infinitely tho most important of our national interests. It is of all in dustries tho one which can he most ap propriately described as indispensable, it- is an inexhaustible source of our na tional wealth." "Good joke on my mother in law; I haven't stopped laughing yet!" remark ed tho man at the club, cutting the cards. "What was .it?

Where tho general public were concorncd, the Hasted bank rob bery had been consigned to the lim 'oo of forgotten things, through an un» expected, belated development, pro claimed by a sensational newspaper head-line, would bo enough to drag It forth. Men would think for a moment, and say, "Of course!" fl'lien tliey would recall the caso more or less vaguely. "The fellow's name was Stanmore, or Stan-something. What was tho sen tence? Five or ten years? Ho was engaged to bo married, wasn't lio? Didn't slio faint in court, or something like that? A shop-girl, wasn't sho?"

SECOND ELEVENS. R. DALEY 121. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 7 February 1914

SECOND ELEVENS.. R. DALEY 121. At Prihran. Northcotc, batting first, made £ l»d use of an excellent pitch, and at c{ M of time had amassed the fine score of I for 347. Two wickets had fallen for 15 when Daley and Wilkinson became associated and added 17-1 runs before Wilkinson, who had scored 78 by dashing cricket, was given run out, a palpably wrong decision. This was un fortunate, as Wilkinson looked certain to reach the century coveted by most batsmen. His score included two G's and nine *l's. James was also run out after scoring 2, and with the score un altered Heron was clean bowled. With the score at 221 Daley, who had made 121, was also run out, the third in the innings. This young player, an ex Wesley Collegian, was chosen in the first eleven earlier in the season, but did not produce the form expected of him, and it is gratifying to see him come along in such decisive fashion, Jts his runs were got by dashing and errorless cricket, including fifteen fs. He was j accorded a ...
