Watson and Major Heodenan Since the days when the three Peats and Mr. St. John Mildmay carried all before them for the Sussex County Team, there has been no similar combination to that of the Messrs. Miller and Mr. Drybrough. Constant prac- tice together, and intimate know- ledge of, and confidence in, each others' play gives to the present Rugby team an immense advan- tage of the most legitimate kind. Since the Peat era no players have expended so much thought and pains of the choice and education of their ponies as have Mr. Miller and his brothers. Mr. Drybrough, too, does not readily part with a good pony that suits him, with the result that in spite of his height and weight he is satisfactorily mounted. The hero of the first period was Mr. Anseil, whose two goals were both pieces of well-judged and successful play. Rugby at first had the best of it, but three times the Inniskillings cleared a way for Mr. Anseil and three times they scored in con- sequence. Mr. Ansell's second goal (the third the Dragoons scored) of the ground, which went through at the third stroke, was magnificent. Thus the Dragoons began the second period with an advantage of one goal, but Rugby took the lead, faster ponies and better com- bination enabling them to press hard upon their adversaries. Yet Rugby had many vain shots at goal — not, I think, as was sug- gested, because they are bad goal hitters, but because Major Rem- ington's defence was so steady 1897.] POLO AND PONIES AT DUfiUN. 289 and strong. However, by the time the last period was begun Rugby had scored two more goals and had practically won the match. In the last twenty Rugby had matters all their own way, and the score went up with the rapidity which is ever the case when once the ponies of one side are done. Eight goals the Rugby men had scored, while the soldiers had but three. With great deter- mination, however, the latter made a last effort and Captain Paynter scored a fourth goal and the match was won, Rugby win- ning by eight to four. All that remained was for Rugby to beat the 13th Hussars, evidently no very difficult task, for the Innis- killings were plainly a better team than the Hussars, who had the double disadvantage of playing with a new back, and who have not played together very long in their present places. The result was never in doubt, and the de- feat would have been more over- whelming had not Mr. E. D. Miller met with an accident ; for, although Mr. Norman Nickalls (17th Lancers) was an efficient substitute, yet a change in the middle of a match always must be a serious disadvantage to a team. Yet it must not be forgotten that the 13th Hussars made their two goals before the accident. Rugby thus won the third of the three great Tournaments of the year, and have proved themselves in every respect a champion team, in play equal to any of their pre- decessors, and in combination superior. So, with the close of the Irish Cabgolin Tablets Tournament we leave Polo for a season Cabgolin 0.25 ; other sports more engrossing lie before us. But next to hunting and shooting, those who have played the game will acknowledge there is no Cabgolin Tablet one pastime which calls forth so many and various qualities of body and mind as the game of Polo in its modern development as Buy Cabgolin a game of science, courage and skill. T. F. D. 290 [October The late Mr. E. R. Balfour. It was with no ordinary shock of sorrow that his many friends, and «ven those who knew him only by his achievements, heard of the death of Mr. Ernest Roxburgh Balfour. He was not yet 23 years old; the world was before him, while strength of body and a finely tempered disposition were his. Nature, indeed, had showered gifts upon him, but all the hopes that they inspired in those who knew him were brought to naught by the short illness which carried him off on August 27th last. Mr. Balfour was educated at the Edinburgh Academy, and thence, in October 1893, ^^ went to Uni- versity College, Oxford. His size, strength and activity soon made him prominent in Rugby Union Football, and in 1894 he was selected as one of the forwards in the Oxford Fifteen. Oxford won the match against Cambridge, and Mr. Balfour was elected Captain of the team for the ensuing year. In the meantime he had rowed in his College Eight, and in the •October term of 1895 he made his appearance in the Oxford Trial Eights during practice, though his football engagements prevented him from rowing in the actual race. In December, 1895, ^® captained the Rugby football 'team against Cambridge, who won by a harrow margin. Thence- forward Mr. Balfour devoted him- self to rowing. Mr. W. Burton Stewart had left Oxford, and a powerful heavy-weight was re- quired to fill his place as No. 5 in the University eight. Mr. Baltour was tried in the earliest days of practice last year, and so well Cabgolin 0.5 did he acquit himself, and so steadily did he improve that he retained his seat throughout and was one of the brilliant crew who rowed down and defeated Cambridge almost on the post, after ha\ing been led by nearly a length through Barnes bridge. In the following summer Mr. Balfoor rowed in his College Eight at Oxford, but took no part in the Henley Regatta. Last November he rowed in his College Four, and in December he raced in the University Trial Eights at Mouls- ford. This year he again rowed as No. 5 in the winning Oxford crew, one of the strongest by
