THE Billiard Tournament in Bibbenluke, for a medal presented y Mr J Whitby, is going strong, and has given this fascinating game a good fillip. A new snooker set recently put on helps to bring in much revenue.

A snap or light blow made by pressing a fingertip against the thumb and suddenly releasing it.
An embellishment that excites or stimulates: “Spritely tabasco onions, just a little crunch for the top, were an added fillip” (Alison Arnett).
One that is trivial or of little importance.
