AND REEDY CREEK TINES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, APRIL. 8, 1892. 'ihe Philosophy of Sport, THe great revival of athleticism among the British during the present century is not so much a revolt against Puri tanismn as a splendid testimony to the triumph of common-sense. It is a practical recognitten of the patent fact that man has a many-sided nature, given him by a wise Creator, not to be murderously crucified and suppressed by a false asceticism, but to be judi ciously developed into the due propor tions ofa well-balanced and perfectbeing Men are coming to see that, rightly viewed, the recreation ground is as sacred and as important in its uses and its objects as the church; and it may be questioned whether,takenin its broadest sense, any actual heaven is attainable withoqt the one or the other.

Spring Valley. 0FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] A MEETING of the committee of St. John's Church was held at the local State school on Saturday last, when it was resolved to erect a suitable fence around the edifice. An object of much interest to the local agricultural community is an unusually fine field oi sugar cane, which has developed from the plantiug and superintending care of Mr. John Doherty, of Spring Valley. The product has attained the extraordinary height of from II to 13 feet. The cane has not been irrigated, and though growing on the banks of the King Parrot Creek this circumstance speaks highly for the capacity of our local soil,

When he has led his hcrse around for a while, the horse's head is brought in from the boards (i.e., the walls of the school), and the recruit is taught to "stand at case" and to step from side to side of his horse's fore feet in measured paces.
