• SATURDAY,-FEBRUARY 12. A match upon no less than forty boards was played on Wednesday evening between the City of London Chess Club, at their rooms, and Surrey County. Both teams were well selectsd, and: although Surrey had ,the services of twenty-one players who are members of the City of London, but who elected to fight for their county, the City of London Club won the. match by twenty-two games to eighteen. The Ladies'Chess Club drew a. match against the Athenaeum. The match fixed to take place between the Ladies and the British, Chess Club will probably be postponed till Saturday as a more suitable day for the match. The North London Chess Club defeated the Athenaeum in their League match ; but the Athenaeum had to forfeit three games for absentees. The Netherland.Chess Association intend to invite Mr. Lasker to a few days', exhibition play at Amsterdam in March. They might fix the date to.: enable Lasker to attend'the Anglo-American cable match on March 18 and. 19, as he has been proposed to act as adjudicator. A game from the match British Chess Club v.

A writer in "the. current' number of the Naval and Military Magazine gives• a-rather gruesome example of the Gourkhas' lighting qualities : . . ; . . A terribly wounded Pathan unfortunately passed not far from a couple of Gourkhas, who, chatting pleasantly together, were following in rear of the force. He seemed at first to have got by unnoticed, when one of-the Gourkhas, with much the air of a man who has dropped his pocket- handjeerchief, stopped suddenly and retraced his steps. Passing in front of the woundedman he took his beard gently in his left hand, and; raising the patient's chin, with a'swift drawing cut-he severed his head from his body. H-e then rejoined his companion, taking up the ^conversation-at the point at which it had been interrupted. Neither then,, npr at anyfuture time, did either make any allusion to such a trifling event. It must be remembered, however, that an Afridi would treat a wounded Gourkha with similar scant ceremony. chances of a favourable issue, whilst ' W d qo,, .34,' FarringdonL-rpad.
