Cricket Discussion. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 March 1898

Cricket Discussion. Sik, — During' tie last few weeks 1 have noticed some wrangling going on, through the medium of your valuable columns, over a cricket match which was played at uu out-of-the-way little village, some where between the Clarence and Kichmoucl rivers, called Jlurriiyyille. It appears to me that one of these clubs is trying to make a name for itself out of tnis inateu. inow, iur. Jicutor, being a person who has travelled a lot since I was born (as my name de notes) I have seen a lot of this thing and must ad mit that in big clubs — in fact international teams ? you will sometimes wee the same thing happen. Of course you know how Eanji criticised the Austra lians whon he first came out, but now has to admit that ho cannot judge, but Bauji is to bo excused as he is a crickoter. But in tho case of tho Chats worth champion, he is— well, read these few lines from tho pen of — A TRAMP. ? ^ ? Stoddart and his men left England's shores And caino to Australia to fight England'...

Sparks from the Anvil. [By Vulcan.] -Whose humorous strain, fine sense and simple stylo, May teach tho gayest and mako the gravest fimilo.

Our South Arm Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 March 1898

Our South Arm Letter. Aoeicultueal. — Since my last report there has been a considerable improvement in the appearance of crops, and the recent fine weather has had a very beneficial effect on all kinds of farm produce. Early maize is being pulled, but the quality of this crop on the average is poor, though there are some patches of really good corn. It is feared that there las been too much rain fnr Hip nntntnps iilrnnrlv planted, and the seed will rot in the ground. Some farmers have held back, waiting for tho weather to settle, before planting, and should tho weather prove more favourable later on these will be the gaines. But as a rule, during the past ten years the potato crop has been very uncertain on the South Arm. Excessive rain has been tho ruin of every second crop, I believe. Cane of all stages of growth looks promising, and it has once more proved that it can withstand more hardship in the way of unfavorable weather than any other crop we can grow. Genxkal.— The caterpi...
