CRICKET. Good bowling- was the feature of the mitch at Newtown between R. W. W. and Machynlleth, and as a consequence scoring ruled low. The home team took 1st inning? and a fair start was made by W. E. Pryce-Jones and Cannon. The former was top scorer with 11. Although there was only one duck on the side the total only amounted to 60. Lloyd Jongs and Vaughan bowled in their best form and stuck the batsmen np repeatedly, the former getting6 wicketsfor27 andVaughan 4 for 29. Small as this score was It proved too much for Mach- ynlleth. Edwards and A. W. Pryce-Jones even excelled the Machynlleth bowiors and in quick suc- cession all the visitors were dismissed for 32. R. Gillart scored 13 in good form. I'J i wards took 6 wickets for 13 and A. W. Pryce-Jones 4 for 16. The fielding on both sides was close and good. In the 2nd innings of tie R. W. W. the bowline-fell off a little and the batsmen took advantage of it. When time arrived 7 wickets had fallen for 34 W. E. Pryce-Jones again piaved well for 18 Taylor got 13 and Evan Rees 34 not out. The latter's was an excellent innino-s. Montgomery would indeed have been badh" off on Saturday but for the batting of Mr. More. Taking first innings on a wicket which played fairly true the home team scored 81. Considering r! n that More scored 47 of these the batting of Mont- gomery was not up to the usual form. More ave one easy chance before scoring, bnt afterwards he played splendidly, especially against the fast bowl- ing. i or a wonder Hart's bowling did not come off against this team. Pagh and Tallis, who went on late, met with great success. The former got 4 wickets for 5 runs and Tallis 1 for 1. Lumley Jones bowled well all through, although he met with severe punishment at times from More. Welshpool failed to get the required number, and also failed to play out time. The last wicket fell about a minute before the fixed time for drawing stamps. D. R Jones (17), W. Jones (11), and Makepeace (10) hit well for their runs. The field- ing of Montgomery was ranch better than that of Welsbpool though that was pretty good, and the bowling on the whole steadier. A. Eaton was most successful, and got 6 wickets for 18. The worst defeat Oswestry team experienced for some time was that on Saturday by Shrewsbury School. Afcer scoring 184 Moser and Humphreys dismissed the strong batting team of Oswestrv for 47 runs on a good wicket. H. Lloyd Jones (41), M. Druce (65), and F. H. Humphreys (37) were in good batting form for the school. F. O. Roberts (13) not out was the highest scorer for the losers. Gobowen had a proof of the strength of the (hwestry A team on Saturday. The A team scored J.05 for live wickets and then declared. A. England (20) and Bert Gough (38) played capitally for their I jus. the latter's display being perfect. More (11) and Parsons (12) did well. With the exception of T. Price who scored 20 in good form Gobowen were nowhere in batting and all were out for 47. The Newtown County School must thank Sauuders for their victory over the Newtown 2nd XI. Morgan scored 18 in good form for the losers, but letley's bowling was more than the others could man and the last wicket fell at 45. Sannders (52), A. Withers (10), and R. E. Williams (11) were the only men who showed form for the school. Total, 98. A very even game took place between the Oswes- try High School and Ruabon Grammar School, but in the end the Ruabon players just won. The High School XI. scored 42, H. Home with 11 heading the list. Mr Thvmas bowled well and got six wickets for 10 runs. With four wickets down for 33 Ruabon looked liked walking in, but in their anxiety to win three men were run out in succes- sion and eight wickets were down for 41. In the end Ruabon won an exciting game by six runs. The race for the championship continues very open. In the absence of Jackson and Brown Yorkshire were badly handicapped against Essex, but not- withstanding this Essex deserve great credit for their victory over the strong batting team placed in the field by Yorkshire. L. C. H. Palairet easily heads the batting aver- ages and his play this week will in all probability further increase his lead. FIRST-CLASS AVERAGES. Calculated to Saturday July 11 inclusive.
