For the M.C.C., who closed their innings when the score stood at 269 for six, T. Brown gave a fine display of vigorous hitting in an innings of 132, which included sixteen 4's. Mr. A. Conan Doyle was also seen to considerable advantage. Full score: M.C.C. (first innings) : A. Conan Doyle, b Jones 53; C. C. T. Doll, b Jones 0; T. Brown, c Syrad, b Jones, 132; W. R.
