with Robertson and Bucknall added runs at a great pace. No one else reached double figures, and Meyrick-Jones was the last to leave. His innings was a lucky one but very useful to his side.
Gould's first 3 wickets fell quickly but Barnes and Latter got together and played out time. Next day of play was a fag day and the same couple put on 50 runs without Gould's losing a wicket. On continuing, Barnes played a ball on his wicket, but Latter still continued batting steadily; he was at last lbw to Meyrick-Jones. The rest of the wickets fell rapidly, Hayhurst alone reaching double figures The innings closed for 147, and Way's were left victorious by 43 runs.
The fielding and bowling on both sides were decidedly poor, two or three easy catches being dropped. Meyrick Jones and Robertson were the most successful bowlers for the winners, Dawson. Thomas, Barnes and Hayhurst for Gould's. In batting Meyrick-Jones was facile princeps, but the plucky stands made by Latter and Barnes in one innings, and Coke and Dawson-Thomas in the other for Gould's must not be passed over without notice.

WAY'S (CRESCENT) v. GOULD'S (STAR). This was begun on Tuesday, May 12th; MeyrickJones won the toss, and Way's went in on a good wicket: Robertson and Lane were the first to appear, and played steadily for their rans. When Cunninghame and Meyrick-Jones got together, runs came fast till Cunninghame was run out in trying a sharp
H. C. Bett and Hildebrand soon succumbed, but T. C. Bett hit well for 26. Meyrick-Jones was secured by a splendid catch at point after a good innings of 30; but then the last few wickets were allowed to get more runs than they deserved. The innings finished for 125.
Gould's began batting towards the end of the afternoon and lost three wickets for 20, Coke who had gone in first still remaining at the wickets and playing very steadily. Next day Coke and DawsonThomas made a good stand and matters looked brighter for Gould's, Dawson-Thomas hitting hard and Coke playing a good defensive game, but after their dismissal the remaining wickets fell rapidly and the innings closed for 85; 40 behind Way's total.
Way's began their second innings with Robertson and Lane. There was a strong cross wind which impeded the bowling. Robertson was let off from an easy catch at point when he had scored 10, and then bit merrily for 45. After Lane's dismissal not much trouble was given till Meyrick-Jones came in.

FORD'S v. HORNER'S.
1st Day.- Ford's won the toss and elected to go in, beginning with Rowell and Browning. The latter was soon bowled and Little took his place. Rowell was soon afterwards caught in the slips. Ashfield then joined Little and runs came freely till Little was caught at long-on for a hard-hit 24.
Houseman came in, and he and Ashfield brought the score up to 130, when the former was bowled by Annesley, having played exceedingly well for 41.
Ashfield was soon afterwards caught at mid-on for a useful 67. Lias and Nockolds were soon bowled and when play stopped Ford's had lost 7 wickets for 172. For Horner's, Annesley and Isacke were the most saccessful bowlers; their fielding was poor with the exception of Casson who fielded well all through.
2ND DAY.-Ford's remaining wickets quickly fell and Griffith and Pennethorne went in for Horner's. No one gave any trouble till Crookenden came in, who played good cricket, but could get no one to stay with him, being finally not-out for a thoroughly good innings of 32. Horner's followed on, sending in Kaye and Crookenden, who at first looked like getting runs but were finally bowled for 11 and 10 respectively. Casson made 25 by some hard hitting and the innings closed for 61, leaving Ford's victorions by an innings and 68 runs. In Horner's first innings Nockolds bowled well, taking seven wickets ; in their second innings Ashfield and Lias were most successful. Ford's fielding was on the whole good, Little and Lias being especially smart.

Correspondence. DEAR SIB,-Might I make a suggestion ? Could we not make a bye law here, that a house shall follow on if it does not reach within 60 of its adversary's score ? This would be a great saving of time, and time is often badly wanted.
Yours truly,-SPECTATOR. To the Editor of the Marlburian. DEAR SIR, -As to “Progress” and his letter I wish to say a word : it seems rather a slight on our energetic instructor, which ought to be refuted. As a matter of fact the exercises have been changed (1) in the House Competition-in the years ’81 '83, '84, (2) in the School competition-in the ye ars ’77, '81,'83 '84, '85; though the old ones have never been entirely done away with. As to the exercise in German gymnasia which are as a rule attended by men and good gymnasts, it is quite impossible for the majority of fellows even to try them, and for others Serjeant Meddows Taylor regularly posts a long list of voluntary exercises. Arguing by results our exercises ought to be good enough ; as in the Public Schools Competition our pair have been 3rd, 1st and 3rd with 7, 9 and 10 entries respectively. As to the squad system it is impossible unless attendance were more regularly enforced in House Gymnasium. As it is many House Captains work up their own houses themselves. Apologizing for length,
I remain, yours truly,
F. E. BULL.
With only a few days for practice before the contest, these few days have to be made the most of, and the determined opposition of the elements can make no impression on the captain's iron soul; the result is a couple of hours of misery, which it would be blasphemy to describe as cricket. In many cases such afternoons as I have attempted to describe engender an intense and deeply-rooted antipathy to the real game, and they certainly cannot be pleasant even to the most enthusiastic devotee of our national sport. Now if House Matches were postponed till the beginning of June rising cricketers would have time to display their form, and all would have ample opportunities for practising; practising itself would be transformed from a misery to a pleasure ; the interest and keenness, which pervades games now for only the first week of the term, would be felt almost throughout the whole season.
Popular opinion seems to have declared itself for some reform of this sort. An important question has been raised and I feel sure that you, Sir, who always have at heart the welfare of the School, will do all you can to give it publicity. And so, apologising for the length of my letter and the feebleness, with which Í have expressed what certainly is the right view, with many thanks to “Jam Mox" for raising the question,
I remain, dear Sir,
To the Editor of the Marlburian. DEAR SIR, -I venture to trespass on your space with the object of correcting a growing evil in cricket practising. The opinion I shall give is one formed by considerable personal observation ; experience I cannot say, because it has been my lot to regard cricket from the point of view of an unprejudiced spectator.
A few years ago a considerable increase was made in the number of nets on the XI, and the most prominent players on first game were moved up to practise there. I was pleased at the time to see the change, but I have since felt a little anxious about those who are left to practise at their house nets.
The result of several days observation this season is this ; that the tails of House Elevens and the leading members of second game amalgamate and practise, but anything more detrimental than their procedure cannot be imagined. If a promising young player gets an innings, he has only inferior bowling opposed to him and in many cases, but for the kindness of the masters, no one to teach or coerce him. The result is that the batting on these occasions is simple slogging or attempts to slog : the bowling is utterly careless and very often gives place to shying.
Now I believe this accounts for the alarming collapses of the tails of House XI's, and you cannot expect otherwise. There are cricket scholars and cricket plodders. The plodder wants to learn and can't learn and cannot play the fool with
The scholar has a good eye and can hit loose bowl. ing, but meantime has no foundation in rule or method and steadily deteriorates. Sir, a bad cricket scholar and a bad
To the Editor of the Marlburian. DEAR SIR,-May I venture to trust you will allow me a corner of your influential periodical to endorse most heartily the sentiments expressed by “Jam Mox," and add what appears to me to be another cogent argument for postponing the commencement of House matches.
The term seldom begins later than May 4th. The first ties of House Matches are usually played during the ensuing week. May is frequently a very cold month at Marlborough; and certainly during its early weeks the most natural way preserve a mens sana in corpore sano is not stand in thin cricketing costume for two-and-a-half hours at a stretch, drenched by incessant showers of hail or rain and benumbed by the keen Marlborough winds. Cricket under such circum. stances ceases to be recreation; its effects on mind and body cannot fail to be injurious, and it is obvious to all that the 'glorious(?)uncertainty' of cricket is immensely enhanced by playing House Matches when the weather is so variable, and that the spin of the coin may very likely do more towards winning a match than the skill the players.
But not only are the House Matches liable to such disadvantages, they entail many discomforts for the privileged(?) number chosen to do battle for their house.
classical scholar are on the same footing, when carelessness is at the bottom. There will be no learning if there is no teaching
I propose then that on every fag day one at least of those who have nets on the XI should in turn come down and play with or superintend the lower nets. If he can bowl he will do a real good. If he cannot, he can prevent much mischief or give others the benefit of his experience.
I feel sure thus that the “rotting" at nets would be reduced sensibly, and the style of cricket improved, not only in batting but in bowling. Cricket is a game worth playing well and needs practice. Practice is excellent training for the ege and mind : but wilfully careless practice is like similar preparation on school work, a ruinous waste of time. Believe me, yours truly,
P. B. A.
To the Editor of the Marlburian. SIR,—This is prime, I should think rare : a letter from "A Sister" in the Marlburian! How civilized we getting! It won't stop though, will it ? Won't the aunt write ? I used, Sir, to think it very wonderful the extraordinary number of persons there are who take an interest in our clothes at Marlborough, but now that “A Sister" has appeared on the scene one feels really quite flattered, perhaps a little amazed too. I know some sisters who would have had a roughish quarter-of-an-hour or so had they interfered with the brother's dress. But we have changed all that; it's all
it is a bit of the woman's rights business, not perhaps a very serious bit; only a straw shows the set of the current, and there is no knowing what liberty of ours may not receive curtailment in the future. “A Sister" writes to say she has been vexed at hearing disparaging remarks made on our boots, I mean the blacking of them. Of course it goes to one's heart, and one is overwhelmed with grief that anyone should have caused “A Sister" vexation and annoyance; one longs so to have been present just to punch the chap's head. He was not one of the Comparison Schools, was he ? Impossible! Noblesse oblige. One of that lot could not possibly have caused “A Sister" the smallest flutter in that region where Autters are said to arise. But may I ask why the remark shonld have angered “A Sister ?" Is she very sensitive ? Why if one were to get angry at all the foolish things that are said to one, life would be a terrible burden indeed. When “A Sister” gets older—she must be very young now-she will have learnt, I hope, that the best and happiest way is to suffer fools gladly, and a person who compares our boot-blacking and dress generally with other Schools must surely, without passing the bounds of civilityat any rate Lord Randolph Churchill would not think so, and he is of one of the other Schools I trust-come under the fool category. Let me advise “A Sister," I am so much older she won't mind, next time to let her friend or enemy have his Aing on comparative boot blacking, and instead of experiencing a pang ask him to write an essay or publish a book and let him entitle it “ Comparative boot blacking," Boz: Smith's
Comparative religion” will be nowhere by its side. It might have the effect too of bringing poor old “Dark" from
his grave, whose boot blacking powers had to be always recognised as perfection. And now let me express an earnest hope that “A Sister" will not stop at boot blacking and dress-by the way I do trust my boy doesn't mind his father's old coats or his mother's old frocks; he'll have a hateful time of it, poor fellow, I'm afraid, if he does. Let her take up another grievance or two in the Marlburian, but in order to effect this, let her lay her hand on that shockingly obdurate geared-with-a-hot-iron heart of the Bursar's. That's the first step, this heart must be crucibled and melted, then “ A Sister" may induce him to paint those palings white; it is obviously of supreme importance that “Vlied” and others should get a proper sight of the ball, for evidently this is all that is required to furnish the XI with “Graces” for ever. Again “A Sister" might, there's no knowing, it all depends on the handling of the Bursarial heart, get the pitous suggestion carried out and have us all furnished with sticks; we are quite certain to have a care for our boots and dress if only we are permitted to carry an eighteen-penny stick. Things must be equal and one couldn't go about with an eighteen penny stick unless our boots were up to the mark, if “A Sister” would go a step further, I'm sure her good sense would eclipse that of the school, and have the “Swagger Stick" conceded ; words would be incapable of expressing what “Adonises" we should all be. And yet before “A Sister" uses her influence in this direction will she consider that the wearing of the stick has its darker and, crede experto, its painful side also ? Some of us remember the day of Sticks and the power of those who wielded them. Verbum sap :-God forbid that that day shall ever be revived. Well then“ A Sister" having accomplished the white palings, I know her tender heart will pause before recommending the Stick revival, will she not pass on to another grievance ? Those abominable trees, 80 dangerous to the Football of the present day, at least
Ludophilos" tells us so. Why, sir, I always understood Football now was reduced to a minimum of danger. You mayn't hack now, and you beg a fellow's pardon, don't
if you put him over. Still there are these trees, they can't beg your pardon, so of course they must come down and then they too with the black palings obscure the light of the epicurist cricketer, that will never do, a fellow is always a good cricketer when he can only play in one light and it would be a pity to lose “Ludophilos,” and then too it would be so jolly and look so well to have bowers dotted about, and wellpadded seats in them, they would'nt hurt the Football player, and that's an object, bruises would look so bad on prize day and the entertainment after, the boots you can remedy, bat how hopeless is a black eye or your arm in a sling. Most undoubtedly “A Sister" has a work to do, a real mission. I should not wonder, if she persevered, she might even get the choir surpliced in the new Chapel. Well I wish her all success in her mission, especially with regard to the boots. Would not an interview with the Bursar be the wisest plan, and as I am unable to be behind the curtain when it takes place, might I ask “A Sister” to give it in detail in the next Marlburian.
