Cricket has not been flourishing lately at Bream. There are many good cricketers, but they do not seem as yet to have found out how to pull together. We are glad to hear there is a prospect of union amongst lovers of the game. Let the members elect a committee say three of number, to manage; draw up a few simple rules, and determine to keep them; appoint one of the three as secretary; be careful in taking accounts of money received and expended; exclude all loungers from the club, and confine it to actual members who really wish to play the game. There is a difficulty about practice ground; but a well-regulated likely to command more support; and a club which has a good supply of funds gets over difficulties.
