Matches were resumed on Saturday after the holiday interval, the .second round of, senior fixtures being proceeded with, and the juniors taking up the running at the point at which it was interrupted by the adv-enf of Christmas. The feature- ot_ rue. day's play was the excellent "double by .L"X*. Crawford, who scored 135 n,-t out and took eight wickets, for 50 runs_ for the Colts against Car is brook .' The, Colt,--' scoro was 284 for five wickets (m----nincs closed), and thev won by 152, runs. Two <>ther good individual performances were put up" in the Carkbro-ok R-Grango match, wb.ich was also played at Cansbrook. We.stbrook scored 106 by very good cricket, and Nelson, for the same t-ea.m, performed the! unique feat of taking four wickets with four successive deliveries. Carisbrook won very _ easfily. Dunrdin gained a meritorious win over Albion. wh,» made 170, by six wickets, while Opoho accounted for St. Hilda by 75 runs. Eollowin;,' aw the- results : , Colts v. Cawshhook -' v - These two teams met at- Carisbrook before a- very fair attendance of siKctatora. The Colts' ba-ttod first, the iisuiil p;ur—.Sbrphorrl and (lia-dwick —cvpening. 'l'ho former began in charautorisLic slvlo with a four off t-ho firet bail sent ilown._and t,he scoro wont along steadily to 75. when Siedeberg Stephens did not get- going", bein-t taken by Adams at mid-off a.ftor «>)rin,g 2. scon afterwards Shepherd fell in the same way, ami three wickets wejo down for 87. Bell and Crawford n«nV bocame. associated, and a long and profitable partnership ensued. Both played sound cricket, Crawford showing- admirable restraint until he C'othis eye in, and then laying on the wood in refreshing .stylo. A fter "helping to put on 131 runs for the fourth wicket Bell was bowled by Adams for 40. Oalland, who followed, got. 11 before Siedeberg p-ot one- past him. Crawford then indulged in soiiio tall hitting. Beginning on Adams, he hit him for"6, 4, 2, 4. A 4 and a 1 camo from the next over, and then, facing- Alloa, he punished the voung lefthander's last- over to the tune of 26 runs — 4. 6. 6. 4, 4. 2. It- wa.s a magniiicont burst of hurricane hit-tint;. The innings wa.s then closed, fivo wickeis having fallen for 234. ' Siedeberg and Adams began for Carisbrook. but the latter only got 3 before being bowled by Crawford. Bruges fell a victim to Shepherd for 1, but Siedeberg, batting carefully and soundly, went on to 30, when he lifted one to Galiand and was out. Smith played nicely, and stayed at the- wickets a long while for 31. Alloo and Bannerman scored 23 and 20 respectively by forceful cricket-, the hitter's score consisting entirely of boundary hits. No one else "offcrorl any ro.-dst-nco to ("re.-.i-ford, who came out- with eight wickets: for 50. and the. innings closed for 152. the Colts winning by 152 runs. Scores :- Colts. —First Innings.

Carisbhook B v. Gr.-\NGE. This match was played on the side wicket at Carisbrook, and proved a very I one-sided engagement. Grange, who I batted first, were all out for 41 run*, Popple being the only batsman to play the i bowling with any coniiueucc ; he made 27, ! the next best score on the side being 4. I Nelson, who took six wickets for 29, got four of his victims with successive balls—two with the, last, two balls of one over and two with the first, and second of tho next over. FTardie ak-o bowled through tho innings, and got three for 8. Carisbrook easily passed their opponents' scoro before losing a wicket. Westbrook and Tuckweli putting on 75 before the latter wa,s bowled.

The match between Opoho and St. Kiida, <<n Gulling Park, where, a really good wicket had been prepared, resulted tn a comfortable first innings win for tho visitors after a somewhat uninteresting afternoon's play. Opoho had first strike, but opened disastrously, losing three for 25, both Kenny and Casey [who was run out owing to some misunderstanding, over which the batsmen were perhaps not altogether to blame) being got rid of cheaply. Davidson, however, batted confidently, and he and Kilgour made a good showing, they being responsible for iust- over half of the total.' Davidson's 53 was not a particularly attractive innings, but he nnade some good strokes, while Kilgour played nice 'vleket for bis 25. The St. Kiida skipper used five bowlers, but it is questionable whether it -would not have paid hint better to have given Edwards, who was bowling really well most of the time, a brief spell rather than a prolonged one. The homo team, having plenty of timo in which to get the required runs, were expected to make a fairly good showing, but they disappointed their supporters. EckhofT captured six wickets at an average of nine, and Casey bowled a good deal bettor than his analysis indicates. Davidson, who sent down five overs, secured two for 12. St. Kiida aro a young team, and some of their batsmen la- -k confidence, and their failure was partly dMM. to a, want uf that *.uuality. On the
| other hand, tho visitors' fielding was particularly good, as tho details indicate. The following aro the scores : Oi'OHO.—First Innings.

Grigg, a very consistent bat. made 62, and Brydone 'was unbeaten when stumps were drawn with 57 to his credit. The bowling was severely punished. Mackersy had made 25 when he was run out.
