Bryant, members of j the team of Perth cricketers and en- j thusiasts who returned from a visit to the Eastern States, where they witness ed the test matches at Sydney and Melbourne. 'There is no doubt,' said Mr. Ban dell, 'that the Englishmen were the better team. In Sydney, they beat the Australians in every department of the game.' Eichardson's fielding, he con sidered, was about the best he had ever seen. In Melbourne, the Australian;; had the match absolutely won and then lost it. The old, hands seemed to think tha^ if it had not rained, the Australians would have won. Even with the rain Mr. H. Truiuble said that the Englishmen should have been out by 4 o'clock on the Friday afternoon. Hobbs and Sutcliffe bluffed the bowlers by appearing to be in difficulties when they were, really hanging on to their wicket. 'For the men in our...

THE HARVEST IMPROVED ESTIMATES WATER SUPPIiIES BETTER Owing to the occurrence of thunder storms between the 5th and 7th, and again on the closing day, and of show ers of southern type between the 17 th and 21st, December closed with water supplies and pastures in a better posi tion, taken on the whole, than is usual at this time of the year. The falls, uowever, were very patchy, and in many districts water carting was in progress. From stations no't far apart the following reports are gleaned: — 'All surface water disappeared — wa- ter carting general,' and 'Majority of dams have enough water to carry on till winter rains.' Stock maintained at least fair con dition where the season had been at its driest. Wherever the rains had becu good enough to bring up pasturage, tlio improvement was very noticeable. Concerning the cereal harvest, reports aL-o varied greatly, but the poorer re sults were usually attributed to one of two reasons — (a) primitive farming me thods, or (b) crops bein...

Ariniittino- t\iat. tins* hi&linTU;' a^.finn lends itself to misunderstanding, the writer -continues: — 'It is very easy to say that in permitting the use of the revised book of 1928, even under care fully framed conditions, the bishops are flying in the face of tho law.

There the gelding, ran well in strong fields, but was un placed, Salonia did not come up to expecta tions at Eandown, but cannot be left out of the reckoning.
