The History of Cricket. Cricket is not as much a game as one of the institutions of the English race. Wherever Englishmen are gath ered together, wickets will be pitched, and the game enjoyed. There is an uicertainty about cricket which mnakes it as fascinating as life itsdlf. What we know must happen possesses little attraction. It is the doubt, the un - certainty, whichl charms. Whatever the faults of the Board of Control may be, it is abundantly recognised that cricket is not subject to the baneful Sinfluence of betting, and is tihe purest of outside sports. Its influence is interknitting tlhe different parts of the 1uEmpire together is obvious, and the trips of cricketers from England to SAustralia and South Africa, anid of Australia to England, and the inter change of visits between South Africa Siand Australia, have very grave inter Snational importance. Like all games, cricket has become the game it is by a, process of evolution. In the iti-o tiial stages of the game, there w...

American Titles. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 9 January 1914

American Titles. William Jennings Bryan once joked about the American fondness for titles. "You all know of the colonel." he said, "who got his title by inheritance, having married Colonel Brown's wid ow? But I once met a general who got his title neither by inheritance nor by service, nor by anything you could mention. " 'General,' I said .to him. 'how do you come by this tiile of yours, any. way ?' " 'Why, sir,' said he. 'I passed my youth in the flour trade, and for 2i7 years was a general miller.' "I knew another titled man-Judge Green. " 'Are you, sir,' I once asked him, 'a United States Judge or a circuit court Judge?' 'I ain't neither,' he replied. 'I'm a judge of hoss-racin'."' A woman bathing at the Lakenham baths in the river at Norwich was bitten on the ailkle by a pike, several dcen cuts being inflicted. What was described as the largest mushroom ever seen at Covent Garden was exhibited recently. It was 47. inches in circumference, and weighed 81 lb.

There were any amount of Bruns wick and Coburg cricket enthusiasts down at the match between Victoria and Now South Wales on the Mel bourne ground last week, and tile opi nion was pretty unanimous that unless there was an uprising Against the un holy clique, an offspring of the notor ious Board of Control, that now dorm inates Victorian cricket, the game would sink altogether in public es timation. The Bean n-McAlister-Ellis lnoe has become so emnboldened by their actions remainiing unchallenged the clubs that they have practical ly thrown off disguise, and it is now, a scarcely reiled secret thliat-to secure entry into the Victorian Eleven the first claim is an acquaintanceship with one of the selectors, and that if the aspirant happens to be an East Mel bournito his chances are vastly im proved.

Solving the Problem. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 9 January 1914

Solving the Problem. The two hopes of Britain who had secured half-price tickets for tlhe local dor show looked very perplexed as they- stood surveying the winner of a first .prize. Their gaze was bent upon a fine specimen of the Skye terrier, which posssessed such an abundance of hair as to give it more the appearance of a woollen hearthrug than a worthy fnember of the canine race. "'Which is his 'ead, Bi!l?" queried the red-haired boy of his companion, after having made a critical exsmina tion. "Blowed if I know I" repliedl the other. "But I tell vou what-I'll stick a pin into it, and you watch an' seo which end barks1"" And the problem was solved.

Bathing Fatalities DRASTIC ACTION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 9 January 1914

Bathing Fatalities DRASTIC ACTION WANTED. Every holiday season, and more es Ixcially every Christmas, we have an appalling number of catastrophies in the shape of deaths by drowning at the various seaside resorts. If this terrible toll by the sea were due to the fact of mnexperienced swimmers venturing into the water, there would be some. possibility of ordinary remne dies, such as expert life-savers and a cordon of boats being keopt on the watch. Unfortunately it is not the novices, but the trited and capable swimmers with years of experence who furnish the major proportion of the victims.. The cause of the disas ters is not inexperienceo but a fault equally as deadly, rackk~essness. There are certain spots in our Bay and on the adjoining coast line where the sea is so treacherous by means of sudden hugo waves that come sweeping shore wards, and in their back-wash carrying a~nsay anything or anybody with irre sistible force and with a ghastly un dertow whicl renders futile the ef f...
