CRICKET. YACK AN D AN DAH v. BEECHWORTH The above clubs met at Yack andandah on Saturday last, but the weather was very unfavorable, and the match can hardly be con sidered its a test of the merits of i ho respective teams. Just as play was ;.bout to start,' a very heavy thuudei -storm passed over the ground. and a clayed play until about liaJl past three. The visitors did not arrive till three o'clock, so that the match wo? generally unsatisfactory. After the thunderstorm the wicket was sodden, and the grass in the field wet. the ball being very 'greasy,' For the tirst few overs after the rain the bowling was very bad, and the scoring fast. The slippery nature of the ground also made the fielding bad. no less than four catches being missed. Hard luck seems to have followed the Tack boys. Mr Hock ing in his first over bowled Morrison, but he was given 'not out' by the umpire in mistake. The visitors put together 74 runs, and as the evening was advanced the local boys went in to play...

Rome, one of the com mittee appointed to inform the busi ness people of the meeting and its objects, reported that Mrs Martin would fall in with the views of the meeting, and Mrs Styles would agree to a Wednesday half-holiday.

They would be able to see cricket, football, and other matches. Mr Michelsen said that the firm of which he was a member, could not see its way clear to close on any day except Saturday, as it would not suit them to make a break in the week.

3fUD GEGOX GA. A plain and fancy dress ball was the attraction at the Mudgegonga Free Library on Friday, the 28th November. There was a good atten dance, although not so large as ex pected, a counter attraction at Stan ley in the shape of a ball having con siderably interfered therewith. How ever, there were visitors from Yack andandah and Myrtleford, and the proceedings passed off successfully and merrily- Although the announce ment gave forth that it was to be a Plain and Fancy Dress Ball, the patrons of the former predominated.
