CRICKET. Tho firet representative cricket match of the season was commenced at Wanganui yesterday, when Wanganui (the holders of the Hawke Cup) met South Taranaki. The wicket was in good order, but play was somewhat hampered by a gale of wind. Batting first, tho homo sido compiled 598. tho tail showing surprisingly good form. Extras yielded 75. The bowling of the visitors was rather weak. South Taranaki replied with 105 runs for five wickets. Pratt hit with freedom for 57 not out. Autumnus will not fulfil his engagement in the Palmerston North Stakes-, and the fine-looking son of Treadmill will consequently enjoy a brief respite from strenuous work. Owing to Southland engagements requiring his attention, Mr A. G. Wood has had to relinquish his position as starter for tho Marton Jockey Club's meeting on January 1 and 2. A new system of punishment for minor offences has been introduced at Christ's College (states the 'College Register'). Instead of having to do " lines." offenders have to push, the big roller on the football field for a certain time, increased according to the gravity of the offence. This punishment was rendered necessary as tho groundsman had not time to roll the pitches.
