Cricket. Muscle Creek y. Wybong. (From a correspondent). The second of April had been looked forward to with some considerable in terest by our cricketing friends in this quiet locality—" the sanitorium of the north" as you have termed our Wy bong Creek—it being our last fixture in the trophy matches, and the fact of our having to meet such a team as ihat of Muscle Creek Club, .vith its almost unbeaten record, increased the interest somewhat, and large numbers of the residents rolled up at an early hour in buggies, &c., to witness our last performance Well, so far as your correspondent is aware, the feeling seemed to be that the result was al most a forgone conclusion, as our team has met so many reverses during the season.

SCIENCE UTILISES ALL THE OX. In an article on tho " Wonders of the World's Waste," William George Jordan, in the "Ladies' Home Journal " (U.S.), details how science at the present day utilises the ox. '• Not many years ago," he says, " when an ox was slaughtered forty per cent, of the animal was wasted ; at the present time ' nothing is lost but its dying breath.' As but one-third of tho weight of the animal consists of pro ducts that can be eaten, the question of utilising the waste is a serious one. The blood is used in refining sugar and in sizing paper, or manufactured into door knobs or buttons. The hide goes to the tanner ; horns and hoofs are transformed into combs and buttons ; thigh bones, worth eighty dollars per ton in America, are cut into handles for clothes-brushes ; fore-leg boneB sell for thirty dollars per ton for collar buttons, parasol handles, and jewellery ; the water in which bones are boijed is reduced to glue ; the dust from sawing the bones is food for cattl...
