IjFor over two hours was witnessed I some of the finest playing ever seen Ion the local greens, and as expected jit was the "tit-bit" of the whole ser- jiesot! games for tho Buchanan "Scotch j Double" cups. The contest from the ]'beginning was a see-saw affair, with .'honors slightly in favor of Livie and hvilletts, up till the ninth end. Here Willetts who had been playing an ex- iceptionally strong game, fell away JFlightly and the Fnirley-Ward team gathered in a sufficient number of shots to make the game even up. then on the game was always in (doubt and at the end of the fifteenth end when the game should bo over the score was a tie. This necessltat- ed the playing of three extra ends be- fore the winner could be declared. It was in these extra ends that every man was at his best. Fairley and Wiiletts playing almost a perfect, game, left the jack fairly well covered so that Ward and Livie were called on. to do some "exceptionally clever playing. The sixteenth end ended in favor of Livie and Willetts, the next end Ward drew to the jack evening up the score once again, leaving the last end the deciding one. After clever playing by Ward and Fairley, the game was con- ceded to them, -but along came Livie with his last bowl and run the jack back to his own ball, thus winning the game by two shots, and annexing the cups donated by W. A. Buchanan, M.P.
