Charles Tebbut, treasurer of the Essex County Club, died of apoplexy on September 27. Mr. Tebbut, who was connected originally with Middlesex, and remained till the day of his death on the committee of that county, was one of the staunchest supporters of Essex cricket. A few years back, when the fortunes of the county club were at the lowest ebb he advanced a considerable sum of money, and was mainly instrumental in enabling the club to continue its existence. The result of his timely effort must have far exceeded his most sanguine expectations, and before he died he had the satisfaction of seeing Essex thoroughly sound in a financial sense, and in a prominent place amongst the leading counties.
