Lost ball

Otago Daily Times - - EDITORIAL -

While the vet­eran crick­eter C. G. Wil­son was pass­ing his Satur­day af­ter­noon in Wellington hit­ting good bowl­ing for fours and sixes, he lifted one ball out of the ground and sent it into the Cale­do­nian Ho­tel, through the din­ing­room win­dow. The din­ing room was locked, and a search had to be made for the per­son hold­ing the key. When the room was opened (says the Do­min­ion) the ball could not be found till some­one, look­ing in from the foot­way, no­ticed it tucked in be­tween two of the laths of vene­tian blind. — ODT, 16.11.1917.
