USK V. ROYAL MONMOUTHSHIRE ENGINEER MILITIA. This game was played on the home ground on Saturday afternoon, the weather being of a favourable character. The home team went to the wickets first, their combined efforts realizing a total of 156, of which Captain Patch was responsible for 41, and George Edmunds for 47. The latter for some weeks past has been in admirable batting form, and it was very unfortunate that he should have been run out when he had so completely mastered the bowling. The total of 156 was arrived at after about two hours play, Sergt, Ide taking six of the wickets. On the visitors going in to the bowling of Mayes and W. F. Roberts, it was obvious that the trundlera were too good for the batsmen. Three wickets went down without a single run being registered. The scores below give a good idea of the inability of the visitors to make a stand, and but for the 30 compiled by Sergt. Ide (who got his finger rather badly smashed), and Mr. Olivaiu's 10, the team would have been in a lamentable position, for the remaining members of the eleven could not muster five between them. Moreover, it may be observed that had three chances been accepted by the home side, the visitors would have had a still smaller aggregate. Mayes and W. F. Roberts participated equally in the bowling honours, taking five wickets each, C. H. Davias acted as a substitute for the visitors I who arrived one short. Scores:- usx. F. Hill, b O'Brien. i S. A.
