INCE. GARDEN PRIZE.-From a circular issued Ly the directors of the London and North-Western and Great Western Railway Companies, we notice that Mr. W. G. Ricketts, of Ince and Elton Sta- tion, has again been successful in gaining the first prize given by the company yearly for the best kept garden and premises. Mr. Ricketts, whoso keenness in gardening is well known locally, has done much to develop a love of hor- ticulture m this neighbourhood since he came to residp among us, and he is to be congratulated on his continued success, this being tiho third or fotnth year in succession that the first prize has been awarded to him. ,tw CRICKET SUPPER AND PRESENTATION. —Through tho kindness of the Rev. F, Olifton- Smith. the members and friends of the. Ince Cricket Club, to the number of about 36, were entertained at supper at the Clubroom, Welling- ton Inn, last week. After supper an oxtensive toast list was gone through, includin.g the following:—"The Ince Crioket Club," pro- posed by Mr. J. Still and responded to by the captain, the Rev. F. Clifton-Smith; "The Honor- ary Members." proposed by Mr. Wm. Brown and responded to by Mr. W. J. Lee (Thornton Hall) and Mr. W. Greenway; and "The Captain and Host of the evening," given by Mr. A. W., Pollitt and received with musical honours. After- wards prizes were given out by the Vicar to the different, players who had acquitted themselves with merit during the past season. The prize for the batting average fell to Mr. Wm. Seeker, who with an aggregate of 298 claimed 24 as his aver- age for the season. Mr. Wm. Nield secared the greatest number of wickets, and thus captured the In prize given for the bowling average, while Mr. George Wright, who had brought off the greatest number of catches, received a pipe and case. The Secretary's prize for the highest individual score had been won by the captain, who generously parsed it on to Mr. Wm. Nield. A veiy pleasing ceremony next took place, namely, the presenta- tion to Mr. Osborne Proffitt, who is leaving the village and going to reside at. Upton, near Chester, of a handsome barometer, subscribed by the members of tho club. The present bore the inscription "Presented to Mr. 0. Proffitt by the members of the Ince C.C. on the occasion of his marriage. Nov. 22, 1905.The Chairman, in making the presentation, mentioned that Mr. Proffitt had been a useful member of the club for many years, and in the name of the members lie wished him all health and prosperity in his new life.—Mr. Proffitt, responding, said he should not readily forget all the pleasant- memories associated with the Ince Cricket Club.—After- wards the Vicar, in commemoration of the fact that the club had gone through the whole season without once suffering defeat, presented to each member of the team a silver medal, and in doing so stated that although he had been captain of different cricket clubs for years past, yet never in his experience had he been, able to boast that. his eleven throughout a whole season could lay claim to an unbeaten certificate. Each modal had the fol'lowing inscribed on it:—Ince GC., season 1905. Won 10 drawn 6, lost none." The even- ing gained enjoyment also from songs given by Messrs. W. Seeker, J. Ellams, A. Slater, E. Peel and J. Roberts, and recitations by Messrs. W. G. 1 Ricketts and Wm. Brown. A hearty vote of thanks was proposed by Mr. Ricketts to the vicar for his generosity and for a most enjoyable even- ing.
