1ST XV. v. LONDON IRISH.

Played at Blackhorse Lane on Saturday, January 6th, a very good game resulted in a win for the Irish by 1 try nil. The Hospital had on the whole the better of the game. The Irish pressed at the start with the wind at their backs and soon scored near the corner flag. After a little more defence the Hospital began to attack, but the passing among the threequarters often lost ground. In the second half the Hospital forwards played a great game, heeling and dribbling well, but unfortunately no score resulted, though Atkinson had hard such luck in not doing so. Among the forwards, Bingham, Howitt and Gamlin played well.

Team. C. J. Fox, E. L. Atkinson, W. H. R. Sutton, A. J. Rae, J. N. Wheeler, C. L. Petch, E. H. Marshall, R. G. Bingham, A. B. Howitt, W. O. Meek, S. F. Dudley, R. L. Gamlen, N. W. Jenkin, R. B. Abraham, F. M. Neild.

1ST XV. v. ROYAL NAVAL COLLEGE.

Played at Chiswick on Saturday, January 20th. The Hospital won by two goals and one try to nil. The home team kicked off and attacked immediately, a bout of passing ending in Sutton's scoring a try close to the post Bingham converted. Soon after Smale got clear away, but was collared by the back and so injured his knee that he had to retire. For the rest of the game the Hospital played one short; Harper was pulled out of the scrum to play wing three-quarter.

The game was fought out on fairly even terms in the second half, but the forwards scarcely displayed their usual dash. Towards the end Sutton scored two tries in quick succession, one of which Bingham converted.

1ST XV. v. ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL.

This replayed Cup-Tie was played at Richmond on February 5th and won by St. Mary's by a placed goal, a penalty goal and two tries to nil. Our supporters were in less numbers than we have seen at a cup-tie for years, this being in accordance with the general lack of interest taken in the Hospital games at the present time. Several of the Staff however, were present. Mary's kicked off with a strong wind in their favour, and for some time play was confined to our twenty-five. Sutton and Bingham relieved with a good dribble, but Mary's again pressed and Louwrens scored a neat try which was not converted.

In the second half our opponents were distinctly the better side and scored two tries and a penalty goal. Most of the play was in our half, but once Hewitt made a good run and passed to Bingham, who almost scored. Wheeler, also, made a fine run down the touch line. Louwrens played a magnificent game for Mary's and had a good deal to do with our defeat. It is impossible to b lieve that our team is incapable of playing a better game. The forwards are a heavy lot, but some of them hardly used all their weight, and their footwork, especially in the scrum, was execrable. Howitt played a fine game, as did Bingham and Jenkins. The halves were good in defence but quite failed to open up the game. The three-quarters tackled well, but their passing was bad. Fox played a good game at back.

"A" XV. v. HARLEQUINS "A."

This match was played at Chiswick on Saturday, January 6th and resulted in a win for the Harlequins.

The Hospital started off well in the first half, having most of the game. Three tries were scored, Windsor accounted for two and Grimwade for one, none of these tries were converted.

In the second half we were completely outplayed-our opponents crossed our line six times-three of the tries were improved upon, the Harlequins thus winning by 24 points to 9.

The team was as follows:-R. C. Priest, J. F. Windsor, J. H. Bletsoe, P. Harper, E. Seymour, F. R. B. Skrimshire, A. G. V. French, R. L. Barwick, S. W. Grimwade, C. T. V. Benson, M. L. C. Irvine, J. K. Milligan, J. Startin, E. W. Witney, W. Harmens.

"A" XV. v. MOLESEY.

This game was played at Thames Ditton on Saturday, January 7th, and resulted in a win for the Hospital by 3 points.

This was one of the best games the "A" team has played this season. In the first half Seymour and Savage scored tries neither of which were improved upon. On crossing over Molesey scored twice, but the tries were unconverted, and after several scrums close to Molesey's line, Seymour got in again for the Hospital five minutes before time. We thus won a fast game by a try. Cox and Custance were the pick of the forwards.

The team was as follows:-R. C. Priest, back; W. Morton Jack, A. H. Savage, T. F. Windsor, E. A. Seymour, three-quarters; T. S. K. Foote, F. R. B. Skrimshire, halves; J. Startin, W. Harmens, C. N. Benson, R. L. Barwick, J. M. Custance, N. M. Fergusson, R. Cox, and W. S. Welch: On Saturday, January 13th, we played Blackheath 2nd, at Chiswick, the match resulting in a win for us by two tries to nil, these being both scored near the touch line by Smale, one in the first half and one in the second. It was quite a hard, keen game and the forwards were pretty well matched considerable talent being showed by several who have come up this session. Ray playing for the visitors made the sides full.

The team was as follows::- F. R. B. Skrimshire, O. R. Smale, E. L. Atkinson, H. C. Devas, J. N. Wheeler, R. S. Overton, R. C. Priest, W. G. Dudley, R. L. Barwick, S. W. Grimwade, C. T. V. Benson, R. Cox, W. Harmens, R. B. Abraham, M. L. C. Irvine.

"A" XV. v. OLD BLACKHEATHENS.

Played at Chiswick on Saturday, January 27th, the Old Boys winning by three goals.

The Old Blackheathens were three short and we were one short, so we gave them a man to eqalise matters. As usual, we started off well, Foote scoring the first try, which Startin failed to convert. Soon after this the Old Boys crossed our line and the try was converted. In the second half our opponents got over three times, two of these tries being improved upon. Our team was as follows:-M. L. C. Irvine, A. H. Savage, J. F. Windsor, F. R. B. Skrimshire, E. A. Seymour, A. G. V. French, J. S. K. Foote, J. Startin, R. L. Barwick, R. Cox, P. Harper, J. M. Custance, C. T. V. Benson, S. W. Grimwade, E. W. Witney.

JUNIOR CUP-TIE.-"A" XV. v. LONDON "A."

This match was played at Hale End on Friday, 2nd February, A very strong wind was blowing straight across the field, with occasional showers of rain making the conditions far against enjoyable. The London team looked much heavier than ours in every department. They started off with a rush and from a scrum the ball was passed across their three-quarter line, the left wing scoring the first try in the corner. From this move Savage twisted his knee and had to leave the field. Harper was put out on the wing, but did not seem to enjoy his position. Before half-time, London scored five times, the last try being converted. After half-time, Morton Jack took the place of Skrimshire, who went out on the wing. The London men slacked off in the second half and two or three times we looked very much like scoring, Startin, Barwick and Cox being especially conspicuous in forward rushes. French broke away once, but had no one to back him up. Skrimshire got in some very useful kicks, but of the whole team H. V. Welch played a grand game, getting his man every time, and certainly he kept the scoring down much more than it might have been. With a little practice he will make an excellent back. The London three-quarter passing was very good and they were well backed up by their pack. In the end they won by 9 tries one goal to nil.

Team: back, H. V. Welch; three-quarters, W. Morton Jack, A. C. Seymour, J. F. Windsor, A. H. Savage; halves, F. R. B. Skrimshire and A. G. V. French; forwards, J. Startin (Capt.), P. Haiper, R. L. Barwick, J. K Milligan, R. Cox, W. Harmens, S. W. Grimwade and J. M. Custance.

ST. THOMAS's "A" v. EALING "A."

Played at Chiswick on Saturday, February 3rd. The Hospital were only able to put a weak team into the field and again suffered defeat. At half time the visitors led by one goal and four tries to two tries, Morton Jack and Sington scoring for the Hospital. In the second half Ealing added another goal and try, thus winning by two goals and five tries (25 points) to two tries (6 points).

HOCKEY.

ST. THOMAS's v. BARTHOLOMEW'S.

This tie in the first round was played at Blackheath on January 30th. The ground was very wet, and soon got cut up, which may account for the fact that the game was of a scrambling nature throughout. Neither side showed much combination, and the St. Thomas's forwards were especially weak in this department, but as they had not played together before during the season this is hardly to be wondered at. One particularly noticeable shortcoming was the failure of the inside forwards to follow up in the circle. Bart.'s pressed during the first few minutes, but play was then transferred to their twenty-five, and about a quarter of an hour after the start Gibbs displayed his customary knack of scoring, and got a somewhat lucky goal. Play then ruled even till half-time, first one side then the other having the best of the game; the St. Thomas's forwards were once or twice at fault in taking advantage of centres from the right wing, and should certainly have increased their lead.

About midway through the second half Vines equalised by scoring from a scrum on the edge of the circle, Gemmell who had dropped back into goal just failing to stop the shot. From here onwards neither side could score and the game ended in a draw of one goal all.

For Bart.'s Phillips played a good game at back and Barton got through a lot of work at centre half. For St. Thomas's all the halves were good, Fox's display at centre half being especially worthy of notice; Wootton without previous practice showed his old form at back, and repeatedly checked the opposing forwards, while Gemmell played as sound a game as

ever.

A special word of thanks is due to Neild who (Footner being unable to play) turned out at a few hours' notice and successfully performed the thankless duties of goal-keeper. G. W. D, yland of Guy's filled the post of referee to the complete satisfaction of both sides.

Team F. M. Neild, goal; A. C. Gemmell and J. C. Wootton, backs; H. J. Nightingale, J. C. Fox, C. F. O. Sankey (capt.), halves; F. M. Bulley, H. E. T. Dawes, A. B. Howitt, S. R. Gibbs, W. C. A. Ward, forwards.

Hine Illae Lacrimae !

WE have a correction to make.

We were quite wrong when we stated that it is untrue that a dictionary has been provided for the Secretary's office." On the contrary, we are informed that a dictionary is in constant use in that department. Indeed, so great a store of etymological information has reached us from numerous sources that we are able to make an authoritative statement on the matter. The word is spelt lacrimal in the dictionary, and lachrymal

everywhere else. A scholarly correspondent has pointed that the word has been as closely connected with indignation and annoyance in the past as in the present.

We are referred to Juvenal, "per lacrimas effundere bilem;" and again, "inde irae et lacrimae." Another correspondent finds poetical inspiration in the subject.

The dictum of the Oxford Don,
Who said that Lacrimation
Had got no " chi," nor yet a "y,"
Escaped my observation.

The tiro in Anatomy,

Although extremely insular,
Is sure to spy, with half an eye,
My "Wolffiian" residua.

The Ancients loved to sacrifice,
On every great occasion;

The Surgeon must not practise a
Testicular oblation.

L'Art Nouveau asserts itself

In golden jewels and pottery,

But "nouveau art," it makes me start,
This surely is not scholarly.
