Cricketers experienced perfect weather . * on Saturday, and wickets were fast and •i' true. The Colts remain unbeaten, although at one time during their match with Carts- ■■> hrook Bit looked as though the series cf • victories might be broken. A fine innings bv Shepherd, however, saved the situation. Grange missed a 3-point win over •; St. Kilda at Culling Park by a few minutes only, while Opoho maintained their position of second en the list by defeating Al- • bum after a somewhat uninteresting game A great partnership between- Bruges and Hay on the Caledonian Ground enabled - Carisbrook Ato close in the hope of winning, but at call of time Duncdin still had three wickets in hand. The fielding of several of the senior teams was very peer. Following are the results:— 1
Colts v. Carisbhook B. i Carisbrook Ground was in good condition J ■ for this match, the wicket being hrst-class. j Carisbrook batted first. Austin, and \\ est- , brook opening. The Tasinauian left early, bowled by a vcrkor from Crawford. Tuckwell helped hi*» captain to take the score to 25, but was then beaten by the coach j and bowled. Cameron put «p a stubborn i '; defence, and though some of his strokes I" were unorthodox remained until he had X made 25, Austin (who had batted in good ■ ; form) meanwhile having been bowled. Seven wickets were down for 102 when | . Spedding joined Watson, and, Crawford j ' • having fetired from the bowling crease owing to an injured side, tho pair made a very useful ±uand. taking the score to | . 185. Watson carried his bat for iS, made j " bv good, sound cricket. Tho inuing-' j closed for 202, Crawford's record being | : five for 40 and Shepherd's three for 53. j The Colts opened mine too well, Chadwick, ' Alloo. 'and Bell beinn dismissed tor 16 mm between them, and it was only Shep- | ■ herd's hard, clean hitting that made the | ,v. score a moderately satisfactory one when j the third wicket "fell. Crawford, though) ! ' batting under difficulties, helped Shepherd i to Taise the total to 135 before being caught on the rails by Drumm. Galland came in, and laid about him with his otstomary freedom, with the result that all doubts as to the Colts gotting the runs j were dispelled. Just before the required I number were got Shepherd, becoming reek- j le*fi( ran out to Austin, and was bowled. The applause of the crowd just pre- ' viously had led him—and apparently everys one but the scorers—to believe that lie »i Jiad attained the hundred: hence, doubtless, his carelessness. It was particularly unfortunate for the batsman. Binney was also bowled, and Galland remained not out with 47, a pavticulaiW iree ayu\ attractive innings. The Colts won by four wickets. Tho gate takings, amounting to £5, will be handed t> the patriotic fund. Scores; — Cabisbhook B.—First Innings.

Carisbrook A v. Dt-nediv. ; Batting on a wicket on the Caledonian that gave tho bowlers no assistance, Carisbrook A piled up the large "score of 256 runs for six wickets, when they declared their innings closed. The "first wicket fell for no runs, but then Hay ■ and Bruges became associated, and the .score amounted to 204 when the former "was caught for 97. Hay played a free 'innings, and was unfortunate in missing the century. Both ho and Bruges, however, were missed at ditferent times during their long partnership. The fielding was weak. Hay hit four 4's. Bruges ■went with the total at 217, he making 103, /■ which included eight 4's. He scored very '.rapidly towards the close of his innings, and was 96 when he lost his partner. Reid made 12, Austin 14. and Baxter 13. Tho 1 .fourth wicket fell at 227, the fifth at 244, and the sixth at 256. Mackersy captured the whole six wickets for 104. Graham, although he did not get a wicket, bowled ' nxtremely well. Dunedin, on going in, .•lost seven wickets for 153, tho wickets • falling as under:—One for 50, two for 83, three for 86. four for 87. five for 127. six for 127. and seven for 130. Hay was also in good form with tho ball, taking four wickets for 38. It is hard to understand how such a good all-round player came to be left out of the team selected to practise for Otago. Johnston was top scorer for Dunedin. carrying his bat for 40. lfe was very aggressive. Grigg made 32, and Cramond, always a pretty bat to watch, scored 30. The match was drawn.

This match whs played at Culling Park, -which was :n good condiion. St. KLkla opened against the bowling of Eckhold and Graham. The first wicket fell at 4, 31'FaiIane being stumped in Graham's first over, and .". minute iater Nelson was "caught by Paterson. M'Carten and Livingstone carried the score to 25, when the former was bowled by Graham.- Livingstone, who was joined by Kerr, was next bowled by Eckhold. M'Faull was the only other batsman to make a stand, and played well for-his 16, when ho was caught. j Grange's first wicket fell at 5, A. ! Graham, who batted with Popplo, being " howled off his pads by G. Edwards. Popplo wae caught by Harvey at cover. The Score was taken to 25 by tho next partnership, Paterson and Chadwick, when the former's wicket fell to Edwards. Henderson joined Chadwick, and when another 20 had been compiled he fell to Eckhold. Holdawav did not last long. It waa not till Eckhold joined Chadwick that a stand was made. Both batsmen Ht freely, and increased tho total to 110, when Chadwick became- too confident,
was clean bowled. Graham and Roberts wero soon dismissed. At 132 Eckhold and, W.' Bceby were batting, when -the innings was declared closed. Eckhold was 47 not out. ! With 62 runs to make to save an in- ; hinge'defeat, St. Kilda again went to the ! 'rickets. The wickets fell quicklv—Liv- ' ingstor.e (21). Ward (12). and Harvey, (11) ( being the highest scorers.

One feature of the Opoho-Albion match on the North Ground, in which the hill team notched a two-point win, was the remarkably poor fielding on the part of .Albion, wh'o, if one or two of their eleven in particular bid displayed even a moderate amount of keenness in the field, should have accounted for Opoho a rrood deal more cheaply. But on their dUplay during the hill team's first venture they achieved what was altogether an unenviable distinction for unpardonable slackness. Their display was not v.orthv even of schoo} cricket. A tin' wicket had be-m prepared, and although Kenny and Davidson played over-cautiously, they established a serviceable partnership, compiling 42 before DavirLon brcame a victim to Stiglich. Kennv followed shortly after, having dragged one on from Marks, and the next throe' wickets went cheaply: in fact, it was mainly due to aggressive work by Casev. who was ably seconded by Timlin, that" the situation "was saved, for both batted confidently, the former hitting hard and to some purpose whenever he got p.n opportunity. It was in an endeavor to lift Stiglich to the boundary that he was e.-uih- stnmned by Williams. His 37 included six 4's. Stiglich captured the_ remaining wickets cheaply in rapid fashion, and finished up with eieht for 60. Albion had a good chance of winning, having over two in which to get the runs, but they failed to ri=o to the occasion. The opening partnership between I Duthie and Briusley was productive of 44. of which the former, scorin.g something like seven times faster than his partner, contributed 39 by really good cricket, his off strokes beintr characterised by pretty execution. Williams stayed at the wickets some time for his 37. which was constituted mostly of singlfs. notwithstanding the fact that he put plenty of wood into ; his strokes'. The efforts r,i the rest of the i team were poor, their total contribution i including four ducks, of which one was Jim Baker. Casev. who was sending down some pretty fast ones, came out with the better average, securing four for 33 as against Eckhoff's six for 55. Eckhoff nl=o took a really brilliant catch, diving low in the slips for a chance which Johnstono j gave off Casey. It was a great effort, and well merited the round of anplau=c which it spontaneously drew from the spectators. ' At the call' of time Opoho. in their second venture, had four down for 51 j against the bowling of Jnbn«tonc and D'nthie.
