There seems very little prospect of finishing the Rinks Matches. The Match Committee is very forbearing in not scratching the lot. "' There are still three matches to finish.- In the Colts McDonald, Amos, and A. F. Smith are left in. In the j Handicap Doubles Christie and Me- ] Sherry meet Angus and Capstick. The: 1 winner will meet Dunlop and Bortliwick in the final 1. The final of the Handicap Singfes was played last evening between Craighead (scr) and Higgins (scr). ilt was a close game for the first half, worthy of the reputation of the players. The game was characterised by ■steady cjrawing, orily one fast shot be-, ing, played. The players repeatedly' took the shot from each other. Craighead got the first score, and each got alternate singles urtil the Bth end, when the game was CraigTtead 3 and Higgins 5. At this stage Higgins was playing remarkably well, cutting Craighead out of a four and a three by drawing the shot with his last bowl. Craighead then got 2 twos, a four, and 2 singles in succession, making the game 12—5. Higgins replied with a two, a single, and a two, and Craighead got a single, 2 twos and a- three. The game stood Craighead 20, Higgins 10 on the 19th head, when Higgins retired. '
