was fine for ball playing and ti
home boys were given a goc
backing by the large crowds
attendance. Both games wei
wholly free from any unpleasan

throughout. In the first gam
the home boys got just a little tc
far ahead of the visitors in ti
first innings to make the gam
as interesting as it would has
otherwise been, though thei
was some good playing on bot
sides. The second game, hos
ever, was never lacking in intez
est from the beginning to the end
and was as fast and snappy
game as cne ever has the pleas
ure of seeing from amateurs, th
time being only one hour an
fifteen minutes. With playing c
