There is no boom in pugilism just at present, and sculling for large stakes and much public applause appears to be dead. In view of these facts, which are all im portant to persons wh-5 are considering what to do with their boys, it is apparent that attention musfc be turned to cricket Train up your boy to ' smack 'em to tho fence for four,' to 'back-cut 'eui like a tradesman,' and to indulge in ' sweet glances' (only with the 'bat, mind), and, when ho grows old he will be able to support you out of test match testimonials. If you can train up your boys to be champion cricketers and footballers com bined, then you may indeed be happy. The wealth and gratitude of the nation will be offered you. Take care, however, that your boys avoid Literature and Art, or anything in similar grooves. Our communities do not testimonialise writers or painters who may, by pen or brush, redress wrongs, or br...

Trudging home from the Cricket Ground on Friday afternoon, pleased as Pnnoh with the doings of the Welshmen, we did not give mnoh heed to the sombre lining of olouds on the horizon.
