Franklin Harbour, -November I6.— The holiday last Monday passed off very quietly. The Con- gregational Sunday-school held their annual picnic at the Pound, which was well attended. A cricket match, Renmark boys v. Reservoir boys, excited a good deal of enthusiasm amongst the juveniles, tbe game being won by the latter, mostly through the efforts of J. Buchan a lad of about 3 ft. nothing. who made nearly all the runs and took nearly all the wickets. Archie Badger was the best man for the losers..

This article appeared twice , once as Renmark & once as Franklin Harbour.
