One of the keenest and most interesting (for the reason that it was lull of surprises from beginning to end) games of bowls witnessed for many a, day was played on the St. Clair Green yesterday afternoon jn the presence of quite a crowd of spectators, including many members of the fair sex. TV,s v.-r-s lor IV. -- S '■■ ■ - ..1 Its.Holmes Feathers, and was between teams representing St. Clair and Kaitnna, skipped respectively by Messrs Pkkiingion and T. Sanders. At the outset the. game was stubbornly contested, the, skips being content to notch a. single at every head, and at tho end of the twelfth head tin; score showed Kaituna 5, St. Clair 9. Then Sanders’s men managed to gain 2, which put heart into them. At one time St. Clair lay five shots with only one bowl to go, but Sanders, who had been playing with rare judgment, managed to sneak in and save, tho situation with a. splendidlyjudged shot, leaving St. Clair lying one. Next head St, Clair scored a 3, and the game was practically over, the hillitcs fighting a, forlorn hope for the rest of the evening, and finishing up with a single, while their opponents ran out with an advantage of 18-9 on ties conclusion of 21 heads. Where such good all-round play was exhibited it would be hardly fair to particularise : hut tho play of the respective thirds (Smith and Giles) and the two skips was quite up to champion-hip form. St. Glair are so far unbeaten this season.
