With 10 added to his overnight score, Howell gave a catch off Kermode to Hornby at third man. The bat flaw out of his hand m making the stroke. 4 for 98. Noble was 25 when Gregory joined him. The wickefc was playing well, and the ball was kept moving. Both batsmen were active, and the total was taken to past the century. Noble's severe punishment of Brearley caused a change to be made m the bowling, Sharp going on. Noble, m playing back at a shooter from the new bowler's second over, had his stumps displaced. He played sound and faultless cricket, and took ninety minutes m compiling his 52, 5 for 150. Gregory (12) brought his score to 33 before he lost Gehrs, who, when 13 m playing late at a ball from Sharp, had his middle stump renjovod. He showed poor form. 6 for 178. Hopkins, at 5, played a ball from Sharp on to his wicket, and the board showed 7 for 184.

MoLaren carried the score to 2S, when he was caught off ijaver. He was batting only fifteen minutes, and made four 4's. 2 for 23. Duff was wicket keeping, Kelly having slightly damaged his finger, Tyld.esley and Garnett got together, and played steadily until Garnett had his middle stump removed by a good ball sent down by<rLaver. 3 for 65.

Brearley contributed 7, Layer bringing the end with a catch m the second slip, Findlay remaining not out 10.

(Lancashire was champion county las* year, and though Cuttell, one of tlie bes 13 bowlers, was not m the team, it was very atrong, and a much better fight was looked for. Tyldesley, Hallows, Sharp, and Kermode are the only professionals, and thus a feature was the large proportion of amateurs that were ploying for Lancashire. Poidevin and Kermode are two ex-Sydney cricketers. So far this is the best win the Australians have registered.)
