The match was played oh Dr. Ander son private court, and provided an afternoon of interesting sport alike for the spectators and players. The day was not an ideal one for tennis, the wind that prevailed for the greater part of the afternoon being sufficiently strong to embarrass the players, and* on occasions to seriously interfere with their judgment. 1J!A good deal of interest however was manifested in the match. ;. It was witnessed by a good number of guests from Geeveston, Huonville, Ranelagh, Franklin, Ship wrights Point, and other parts of the district, and the players were frequently applauded by the audience.

THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 13 April 1910
THE BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH. This is the best country on earth to live in, in comfort, and not a bad one to die in either. A man does not need much sense to accomplish this either. He can always* earn money in Aus tralia, and he can always save some if he has but the necessary-sense. It will be found, in nine cases out of ten, that non success can be traced to the absence or such sense on the part of the individual concerned. Every man, if he is sufficiently deter mined about it, may be even better off in the future than he may be to-day. He will not need any' Old-Age Pension. A Policy in the National Mutnal Life Association will provide for his future, and will also protect his dependents in the meantime WITHOUT ANY ACTUAL COST TO HIM. They will tell you all about it* at the Head Office in Macquarie-street, Hobart, if you write or eall. The National Mutual is the most Re gressive and successful Life Office ^n Australia.
