For Geelong, J. C. Trigg, C. Gibbs, W. Cowling, H. Coleman, M. Flore, Captain T. Ranford, C. Fletcher, A. Hickinbothim, W. Dixon and P. IH. Fisher all got over the 60.

Now I think this is specially an Australian sin. Do we not boast unasked of our magni ficent potentialities ? We think more highly of ourselves than we ought to think. But Joseph was also a taie bearer; he lacked that characteristic virtue that is in any school worthy of the name. lie did not know how to play the game.
