FOOTBALL The matches played on Saturday last were not many in point of numbers, but some of them were of considerable importance. At the Kennington Oval Birmingham met London under Association rules, a very large concourse of people assembling to see the sport. In spite of some very good play, however, and several ardent attempts made by the Londoners to secure the victory, the match terminated in a draw, neither side being particularly able to claim advantage.

THE Association Challenge Cup was played for at Shepherd's Bush by WEST END v. REMNANTS, with the result that the West-Enders won a wellplayed and animated game by one goal, the score being at time-call-West End, three goals; Remnants, two goals.

AT OXFORD the University team engaged MAIDENHEAD in the Parks, and ended in the victory of the former by four goals to nothing. Wonderfully smart play was shown by P. C. Parr, who kicked three out of the four goals, the other falling to C. Sweet.

CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY F.C. were occupied in playing their annual match v. OLD ETONIANS, which was contested on Parker's Piece in the presence of a good number of spectators. A splendid game ensued, at the close of which each side had obtained two goals, the match thus ending in a draw.

St. BARTHOLOMEW's HOSPITAL OLD FORESTERS.--In this match, played at Snaresbrook, the medicals were eminently successful, the score being three goals gained by · Bart's' to nothing by their opponents.

In the first half of the game the hospital played face against the wind, Foresters having won the toss and elected to play with the breeze. The goals were won by Wimbush and Jones, of St. Bartholomew's, and the third was made in an odd manner by a rebound from the head of one of the opposing team, it having been previously splendidly thrown in by Morris. The following is a complete list of the hospital team :H. W. Burke (goal), A. J. Weakley (captain) and T. H. White (backs), E. Morris and W. Malden (half-backs), E. Jessop, C. J. Muriel, T. B. Jones, S. Wimbush, H. G. Read, and E. M. Hassard (forwards).

ST. BARTHOLOMEW'S v. LONDON A.C.-In this match, played at Stamford Bridge, under Rugby rules, the A.C., in the latter part of the game, scored a goal to their opponents' nothing, the wind aiding them to some extent, in the same way as in the first half it had enabled the hospital team to press their opponents hard. For Bartholomew's there played -R. W. Adams and J. Neilson (backs), F. G. Richards and D. B. Harding (three-quarter backs), M. Johnson and W. H. Bell (half-backs), J. E. Howe (captain), J. W. Jessops, G. E. G.

Metcalfe, P. H. Waller, W. H. Clark, J. Le Day, G. Henderson, M. G. Robinson, and C. Averill (forwards).

UNIVERSITY COLLEGE HOSPITAL V. CLEVEDON.-Played under Rugby Union rules at Blackheath, and terminated in favour of the hospital by two goals and several touches down to nothing. The goals were obtained by Boyle and Hart Smith,

St. George's HOSPITAL v. WALTHAMSTOW.In this match the hospital team was hardly ever well in the play, and that their opponents were much too strong for them the result plainly showed, Walthamstow scoring three goals and a try to nothing. At the first St. George's had the wind in their favour, but even then they could not withstand the impetus with which the ball was driven into their quarters, and in the second half of the game they were hopelessly overweighted. For the hospital played, Swinbourne and Colledge (backs), Gibbons and Mackay (three-quarter backs), Allingham and Wells (half-backs), Freeborn (captain), Page, Hawkins, Stevens, Pearson, Des Voux, Lane, Wood, and Lilley.

Guys HOSPITAL v. QUEEN'S HOUSE.—In this match, played at Westcombe Park, Guy's played one short, and the game ended thus : Queen's House, three goals, one try and several touches ; St. George's Hospital, nil.

We should be much obliged if secretaries of Football Clubs will send us early accounts of matches played.

THEATRES MR. ALEXANDER HENDERSON's new theatre in Panton Street, Haymarket, which was opened a few weeks ago in the presence of their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales, under the name of the Royal Comedy Theatre, is, in my opinion, one of the handsomest and best appointed in all London. I was there last Monday, and found the house not only attractive as regards decorative and architectural details, but so arranged as to best promote the convenience and comfort of visitors in every possible manner, and especially in that most important one, the means of ingress and egress. The comic opera with which Mr. Hender, son has commenced his theatrical campaign is called 'La Mascotte.' As the name might almost suggest, it is an adaptation from the French, and written in the bright and sparkling style long associated with the names of Messrs. Farnie and Reece. The music being by Audrian, the composer of Olivette,' should be at once popular, as it is throughout of a better quality than that lively piece, and there are some charmingly original vocal solos and concertos. Miss Violet Cameron I bave never seen to more advantage than in the character of Bettina, the Mascotte, and I heartily joined in the universal ap; plause her acting and singing excited. Mr. Lionel Brough awakened, as he always does whenever he appears on the stage, roars of uncontrollable laughter as the silly potentate, the Prince of Piombino, and Mr. Haynes played well up to him. The other performers were thoroughly conversant with their several parts

, and there is every prospect of "La Mascotte' rivalling in popular estimation the evergreen Olivette.'




COMMUNICATIONs intended for insertion or notice

Secretaries of Hospitals, Wardens of Schools, &c.,
will oblige by sending early notices of changes in
their respective institutions; and notices of engage-

desired by the Editor.

The Editor will be in attendance at the office of

cerning the affairs of the Paper.

also anxious to get all the benefit possible from the
demonstrations delivered from time to time. In
this endeavour, however, I am too often com-
pletely foiled by the persistence with which a
crowd of men, many of whom are not even
students of the hospital, force their way to the
bedside, and elbow away all and everyone in
their struggle to occupy the best position for both
seeing and hearing. To one and to all of our
students, who have paid our fees attracted by the
name and fame of particular teachers, it is a great
grievance that we should be thus unceremoniously
and even discourteously pushed aside to make
room for strangers. The worst offenders are
always Americans, and it cannot be wondered at
that we, as a body, have grown to hate the sight of
a Yank' in the wards. Cannot you, sir, help us
in some way? It is, of course, gratifying to the
staff to be thus mobbed, and we can hardly look to
it for redress; but surely the managers of the
hospital ought to consult us a bit and insist on our
obtaining our rights. Help us, please, in some
way, and receive the thanks of everyone who is
like yours, &c.,

PRINCEPS ELEGANTIARUM. - We trust you quite

understand the meaning of the title you have
assumed, and are prepared to show a claim to its
possession. Your letter is the reverse of elegant,
however ; but we will, notwithstanding, accede to
your request. Send the article, or, better still,

bring it yourself on Wednesday next.
DR. NICHOLLS.—If so, we very much regret it;

but you will oblige us very much by ascertaining
exactly how far the story is true. Of course we
must be guided by your report, and by sending it

early you will much oblige.
Miss H.--By all means. We are very pleased

indeed to have your letter ; and though on per-
sonal grounds we are unable to support the move-
ment, we nevertheless do not fail to admire the
pluck and perseverance displayed by the ladies
who embrace a medical career. If you really
wish us to do so, we will either call at the school

or send our representative.
JOHN HUNTER's Ghost.—Thanks, very much.

Queen Anne is dead, and has been almost as

To the Editor of The MediCAL NEWS AND

SIR,—The advent of a new weekly Students'
Journal is being anticipated here with a good deal
of satisfaction, and we all hope that the venture
will meet with the success it deserves. I am not
writing, however, merely to talk compliments, but
for the purpose chiefly of asking your advice on
the following point of what I may perhaps be al-
lowed to call students' ethics. I am a third-year
man, and am working pretty hard in the wards of
my hospital. I consider that I am therefore in a
position to profit by the instructions and informa-
tion contained in the valuable clinical lectures de.
livered by the physicians and surgeons, and I am
