1906 edition. Excerpt: ...Ah, then, we smoked in libraries or
wrestled on the floor, And then we used carbolic soap, which now we
use no more; We listened to our local wits, we heard the local
bore. Alas alas for days that were, Which we recall in vain, When
we worked and read the Sportsman In Caxton Street's domain.
Cricket. THE HOSPITAL v. CLAYBURY ASYLUM. This match was played at
Claybury on June 31 in ideal weather. James, winning the toss, sent
Mitchell and Hayward in to bat. A capital start was made, 68 runs
being scored before Mitchell was bowled for a characteristic 32.
The other batsmen were completely overshadowed by Hayward, who
amassed 84 before being dismissed. This is Hayward's highest and
best innings for the Hospital, and was a very fine display,
including thirteen fours. The whole innings closed for 201. Our
opponents were quickly dismissed by Dr. Abrahams and Mitchell for
104, the former taking seven wickets for 72. Following on, the
Asylum did even worse than before, only totalling 92, leaving us
victorious by an innings and five runs. In the second innings Carr
did the damage, taking six for 41. Our fielding in both innings was
excellent. This was the first defeat the Asylum had sustained on
their own ground this season. Appended are the scores: The
