WATH BROW RUGBY
The annual ball in connection with the Wath Brow R. F. C. was held in
the Market Hall, Cleator Moor, on Friday evening last. The attendance was
good, and capable M. C.'s were found in Messrs. B. HOCKING and H. WILSON. The
stewards were Messrs. E. DOWNES, W. DAVEY, and W. STEELE.
An excellent supper was provided in the ante-room by Mrs. SMITH,
Little Arms Inn, Wath Brow, who was ably assisted by a staff of waiters. The ball
was very successful, and capital music was supplied by Mr. L. TEMBEY.
This district has evidently had a fair share of influenza. No fatal
cases have as yet, occurred, and those affected are now improving. It spares
neither age nor sex.
"Tommy DOBSON is just now giving tangible proof of his presence this
season, with more favourable weather. Last Thursday he succeeded in killing two
cubs, with the bitch in hole as well, while a dog-fox beat a hasty retreat
across the Bleaberry Bield, just beyond the crag. During the weekend accompanied
by Messrs. J. BIRD, H. THOMPSON, T. WEIGHMAN, &c., "Tommy" made for Todholes,
Gillerthwaite, where he also killed one of each sex, and another cub. They
had evidently been enjoying a lamb diet.
Fishing is now fairly under weigh, the best take (13 trout) being obtained by
Mr. WILSON, from Moresby.
