Beaten by the Boys. —A good tale is going the rounds of cricketing circles in England respecting a certain Lancashire professional and county cricket _ player. The garrison at Preston had a cricketing engagement with Rossal school to fulfil, and being short of bowling talent, secured the services of the player in question, who was enlisted for the day with the rank of “full private,” and the nom de guerre of Jones. The unsuspicious schoolboys went in to bat in that happy but delusive confidence which ignorance can alone inspire. Were they got out for five, or six, or ten, or some such insignificant total, making a most disastrous display of themselves 1 Not they ! The atrocious miscreants stayed in all day, and scored 398 off the county player and his military “pals.” One desperate villian obtained 205 “to his own cheek,” and now that prominent professional swears and declares that he will in future fight shy of tender schoolboy teams.
