Some vears ago Tucker made 221 in a match between tho Canterbury Midlands Club and the Wellington team, and this stood as a record for Wellington cricket, but 3lidlane broke that by 1 run. His innings was a ■terling one, the only chance being the =harp catch behind the wickets which Chadwick missed. It *««> however, a difficult chance. Midlane hit 25 4's and one 5. • The Otago bowling had been tested to the full, and, with the exception of Crawford 3nd Watson, had been ineffective.
