CRICKET AT TARIKI.

(From Our Own Correspondent.) Although some years ago Tariki ■lii'd boast a very fair cricket team, iutoly the sport has died out. Rqwc\ur, a meeting held in the hall on the Jntl inst. showed that there are a uu:nIjer of enthusiasts in the district. Sir. V. llarkness was voted to the chair, >::d it was unanimously decided to form if cricket club. Mr. C. J. Young wa* ■Icetcd president and a number of gentlemen who are known to take an interest in the game were elected vice :)iciidents. Mr.- R. Horn was elected iionoary secretary and treasurer. It i as decided to hold an opening day on Thursday, October 14, a committee being appointed to make arrangements.' HYom the good attendance at the meeting and from the general interest aroused, there is every promise of a ;trong club being formed, and it is quite possible that in a few seas.ri? lariki may hold its own with the bi_-t. Some of the members of the old Tariki eleven that won the Taranaki cup about a decade ago are still in the district and the "cap" incident is stitf well remembered.
