It is obvious that some of these times are untrustworthy : on those of the last two years more reliance may be placed. In Memoriam.
T is with most real sorrow that we have to speak of the death
of James J. Reid. We most of us knew him here as a happy boy, enjoying life with a freshness and a delight that brightened all around him; by nature frank and generous, scorning deceit, and loving or hating openly and truly. He was impulsive in all things, perhaps too impulsive; but then his impulse were high spirits and boyish playfulness, and his good heart kept them mostly in check. In the playground he soon took his place among the first. He was Racquet Champion for two years, perhaps the best we ever had; he played once in the Eleven against Marlborough, and that once will be remembered. For cricket and racquets he had real talent, and in football he had too much pluck to fail : by those who knew no more of him, his name will be remembered for these things. Those who knew him well could not fail to see in him a most affectionate heart, and real sympathy with his friends' joys and sorrows, which drew very close a friendship once begun; and behind these there was a growing resolution for the right and true desire to do his duty, which brought forth fruit of steady work not produced without an effort, for, for a time, school work often seemed a touch of bitter in his sweet school-life. He was not born for a student:-his health was against it; his high spirits were against it; but to his honour he did work hard and conscientiously both here and elsewhere. It is the thought of such promise in so short a life that makes his death so sad.

C.C.C.C. v. PEMBROKE COLLEGE, OXFORD. This, our first great match of the season, was played on May Ist, and was highly satisfactory, at all events, to ourselves. The ground was in great order for run-getting, and the day fine and cheerful. The Oxonians winning the toss, took innings, and began the match at 11.30. With the exception of a brief period, when Messrs. Brookes and Tuson were together, there was no great stand made. Mr. Brookes played a fine run-getting innings, his off-hitting being very brilliant, but with this exception,
Strachan had no great difficulty in getting rid of the enemy. It is pleasant to be able to record that in this our first foreign match, the Eleven fielded
together very well, few mistakes being made, and sleep being banished. Wise secured his invariable two men at the wicket, and Strachan made an extraurdinary catch with his left hand from his own bowling.
Hare, who played well for his runs, was disposed of before dinner, and after dinner no great stand was made until Wyatt joined Wise, with the score at 63 for five wickets. For the next two hours there was small relief from leather-hunting, and the field and bowlers became utterly demoralised under Wise's sixes and sevens, and Wyatt's fives; the latter played the game, and, therefore, got runs well, and when Domvile got up energy to bowl him, he had scored 85, an innings which included three fives, three fours, and twelve threes. But Wise was invincible, and remained so until the stumps were drawn, with the score at 286 for eight wickets. He had thus run 258 runs, of which 107 were his own: his innings was a display of patient defence, not seldom enlivened by hard hitting forward: his many big hits included a seven and a six, splendid on-drives, which travelled in the direction of the Juvenile School, and were all along the ground. Our Eleven cannot complain of want of example from their Captain. No other scores were made except by extras who got 61. Annexed is the score :
THE COLLEGE v. C. J. BRUNE'S TEAM. Played on Wednesday, April 7th, versus a team, collected by Mr. C. J. Brune, of Cambridge notoriety. Wyatt headed the score with a 38, and was backed up by Strachan and Schuyler with 22 and 20 respectively, against good bowling. As this was the first match of the season, the total of 137 may be considered a very fair beginning. Mr. Brune played a fine innings of 64.
