This match was expeoted to be closer^ The result is that Glen Roona wins last year's trophy matchcs, as the only remaining match, Glen Roona v University cannot interfere materially with their lead. . , It is to bo hoped that next year the Associa tion will riot allow any postponements except when application is mado beforehand, and never for the reason that, has delayed these matches— that one or other of , the teams could not get their strongest players into the field. The practice, however, of scratching a defaulting team is moro puni...

GENERAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 24 February 1895
GENERAL REMARKS. The Italians have a proverb which says that — ' the ditches are full of the wisdom of afterwards ' — and no doubt the speculators, or rather the investors, for there was very little speculation about it, who have ignored the signs of the times, or having neglected or refused to accept the good advice given them regarding the upward tendency of first-rate stocks during the last tew weeks, feel now as if thoy were left in such ditches as the proverb refers to. For truly the improvement has been good and great, and, indeed, it ha* a far vaster significance than the mere rise of this or that share capital. Ifc means, and to the outside, to the European world, it will be accepted as meaning a restoration of confi dence in Australian financial circles. Nor are the iinmodiato causes of this excellent effect hard to seek. The enormous increase in the amount of money placed to current, and, consequently, to unproductive account in the banks, the bursting out of the latent st...

Sir, — With reference to the interesting matter in relation to lepers published in the Sunday Times in October last, may I venture to briefly, mention, some of the results of recent . investigations into the remarkable recrudescence of leprosy of late years. Evidence on this point was brought before the Royal Commission on Vaccina tion, and has since been accumulating from various countries that the Jennerian operation is responsible for much of this repulsive and incurable plagu,e. The following extracts from one of the wit nesses before the Royal Commission on Vaccination concerning this danger de serve consideration : — 1. The Times, November 19, 1888, pub lished a detailed narrative of the infeotion of a prisoner, Keanu, condemned to death, who was inoculated (with leprosy) at Honolulu, by Dr. Edward Arning, November 5, 1885.
