'season. The Metropolitans are c st longest eleven we have beaten . opinion the victory over Worcestershire is Hi shire's crowning feat this season.
At Portsmouth the game went steadily in team's favour, and, barring accidents, the r was never in doubt after lunch on Friday.
Now at Worcester at lunch time on the third j day a draw seemed inevitable, and the way Hes- | keth.Prichard bundled the home batsmen "out in the afternoon was quite sensational.
Kennedy is atill going great guns. I was surprised a few days ago to hear another Hampshire player contend lhal Kennedy wms a better bowler | two veare ago than he is now. in spite of his greatly improved record.
Very few persons, I venture to think, will agree with this remark. Kennedy may have been as good a bowler two years ago as he is to-day, but I cannot agree that he was better then. There is this to be said that until this year Kennedy did not have many opportunities of proving his worth.
Newman also gives indications of recovering his form. This player told me last week that he never felt better in health, and he could give no explanation of his sudden lapse during the last few weeks.
If we can get both Kennedy and N«i"•"»»>> in form simultaneously Hampshire ought (o gain a few more victories, for the batting is sound enough.
Mead, like Bowel!, distinguished himself in the field at Portsmouth. It is a very rar# thine tor a player other than the wicket-keeper to make five catches in an innings, as Mead did.
There ere few better slip fielders playing than ' Philip Mead. How cross the Hampshire secretary, . Mr. F. H. Bacon, always gets if the left-hander _ tak«» up his position in any other part of the diu
A man cannot last for ever, no matter how much care he takes ot himself, and there are signs that in the near future Hampshire will require a suc-peasor to Stone a* wicket keeper. The que*t for a suitable man has been already started.
Brown gets very few opportunities of demonstrating his abilities as a stumper, because he is in demand as a fast bowler. Still, he was engaged as a wicket-keeper.
Oxford University appear at Southampton tomorrow (Thursday). The Dark Blues are reputed to be a stronger side than the Cambridge eleven. Hampshire will probably be the side that met

There are a few who prophesied a win for Weston, but after the record score of 795 by East lcigh. at Highfield recently, the majority in the League thought the Weston men would go under.
Jonquil, Captain R. TT Dixon's ffjtwetre, was brought back to Southampton from KieT~ou Sunday, and on Monday she resumed racing at the Island Sailing Club regatta at Cowes, where she scored another first prize. All are pleased that the popular Vice-Commodore of the Royal Southampton Yacht Club did so well at Kiel. The Jonquil started in three matches, winning a third, a sixth, and a first, the latter in tbo last day of the International regatta, when she had a very r big fleet of all comers to beat. The great success ,1 of Jonquil ought to bring some orders for Messrs. Morgan Giles and May, of Hythc. who built her.
It now seems pretty clear that the 8 metre Vcntana, designed by Fife, is a light weather boat, as in the hard winds last week she was beaten three days in succession by The Truant, but on a softer day on Monday, at Cowes, Yen tana was again first home. Snero also went well on Monday, and got within 40 seconds of The Truant. Spero was steered the other day by Mr. Granville Keele, who so often took her to the front when she belonged to the Rev. Charles Prodgers. but Mr. Keele failed to win with her.
