At Bristol the overnight score of the Australians was raised from 378 to 382, and Gloucestershire were thus left 272 runs behind. Grace contributed 66 towards this number, but the remainder of the team failed, with the exception of Sewell and Townsend, and the innings ended for 181, the Australians being left winners by an innings and 91 runs. Lancashire began a match with Derbyshire at Derby on Monday. The wicket at starting was soft, and the home captain, winning the toss sent Lancashire in to bat. The bowlers held the upper hand all day, the visitors being all dismissed for 111, and the home team's first inuings concluded at 153. The bowlers were also masters of the situa- tion at Lord's, where, in the M.C.C. and Kent match, 30 wickets fell for 266 runs between noon and seven o'clock.

When seven wickets had fallen for 134 Lord Hawke declared tbe innings closed, leaving Surrey with 123 to make to win, and close upon two hours before them. Brockwell and Abel scored 47 in forty minutes, so that the posi- tion was one of considerable excitement, but when these two batsmen were seperated the Surrey men soon gave up trying to win, and devoted themselves to saving the game. They had to face some fine bowling, and when stumps were drawn six wickets had gune down for75. Gloucestershire succeeded in drawing their match with Warwickshire at Edgbaston. The home team carried their first innings total to 342, and the visitors went in for the second time at one o'clock in a minority of 182.
