They hold the veteran Cnl- lies' 'to a good draw, and that, in these days, is no mean performance. And the Overseas did not have any luck, either, but shared the points decided- 'ly on their merits. The 'crowd was not nearly so large that on tho previous week, when the Sons of England and Cullies opened the season, but the small muster of fans was, to a great extent, accounted for by the mi-settled state of the wea- ther. But those game fans who stay- ed .away from the game missed a nice exhibition of football, with that spice of excitement which usually character-! IzeR a drawn especially where points ore' at stake. The ground was in excellent condition, hi spite of the kra1nfnll. and the players had no dif- ficulty In getting themselves to the un- usually heavy turf. U was a sing soog game with just one .side In the ascendent and -then the other, with neither at anytlm gettl-ng. n decisive lead. The( usual crowd of Scotch spectators'was, appar- ently absent, and us the sympathies of the impartial looker-on uually '.in- cline toward -the supposedly weaker side, the majority of the spectators were glasl to see that famous ten minutes rally" of the Caledonian: prove futile to pierce the Overseas defence. The Callles had changed their line- up somewhat-from that which did duty for them against Uic Sons of England ni the opening match.

Hori'te was somewhat uncertain In the opening session, but 'n the second half he played a bril hint game and delighted the tor's with his display.

Hold it lightly, u illustrated, and it falls naturally into the right shaving position, blade edge just touching the skin. Then draw it across the face, not hoe fashion, but with the Angle Stroke shown, and the keen GILLETTE blade wifl cut smoothly in any the grain, across it, or against it. If you want a light shave, or if your skin is tender, screw the handle tight. If you want a close shave, loosen the handle about a quarter turn. This allows the blade to spring away from the guard a little and take more hold. Buy'a GILLETTE and forget your shaving troubles. Standard Salt, Packet EdHwu, t. Conbmation S.I., J6.5O up.
