CRICKET. NOETH v. WEST. The match on Saturday last was between representatives of the North and West clubs. North put their best team in the field, but thc West had two absentees. The latter were the first to bat. Seddin and E. Mar chant faced the trundling of Cox and Miller. Each batsman scored a single off the first over, but Mil er's second ball completely beat Beddin and knocked the three stumps down. This was a bad beginning, but a disaster followed in the next over which made the West supporters look glum. E. Marchant tried to Int One from Cox and was clean bowled. This player's early dis missal was regretted by all lovers of cricket as his attractive batting is usually looked forward to by everyone but the fieldsmen. Five wickets fell for 19 runs and the next four only added six more. Some excitement was caused by the stand made by II. Mar chant and C. Milne who put on 19 runs for the last wicket. The former batted much better than usually and with practise should keep in for...

HOW DID THE THIEF GET IN? j You wake np some morning and miss your watch, your'purse, your best clothes and other valuables. Yet neither you nor any other member of your family heard a sound during the night. Neither is there a sign of how the thief got into the house nor by what road he decamped. You rush round and tell tho police and also decide to keep a dog and a shot gun. You will let thieves know they mnsn't come fooling around your premises after this. A sensible procedure. Meanwhile your watch, your money, &c., a~e gone. Quite so. Now suppose I should tell you that the thief who stole y mr property never entered your house at all ; that he was born in it ; had lived twenty years in it ; never had been out of it till he went off with your things albeit not a soul of von had ever seen or Iward of him. What would yon say to me ? You would call me an idiot and threaten to have me sent ba ¡k : to the asylum. But don't be too sure. | "Later on," says Mr. Healan,"rheumatism...
