ASSOCIATION. ENGLAND V. SCOTLAND. At Celtic Park, Glasgow, tbere was played the twenty-ninth, annual contest under Association rul between representative teams of England and Scotland. Fortunately, the conditions which prevailed were.all in favotU of a satisfactory decision of the game. The weather, if not particularly bright, was fine, while the north-east breeze came practically o. the ground, but was not particularly strong. The titit? ?f the turf, t?. looked U) I trth;fdee' c is of all grounds the best adapted for tho accommo- dation of a large crowd, and its capacity wae tested to the utmost on this occasion. From noon, although the kick-off was not to take phuie until half-past three, thousands poured through the gates, until by three o'clock there were probably, 50,000 people present. The number may have boen far greater. In order to relieve the tedlum of waiting, a braes band and a set of pipers perfonued at int()rn1J. ?v?ile when those were not active the company amused themselves by singing patriotic songs, while finally came "God Save the Qun," the whole vast assemblage rising and joining. A doubt had been expressed a- to Ncedharu and Crabtree being able to play for England, but they hath reported themselves fit, the teams thus taking the field a originally chossn. Great pleasure was evinced at the announce- ment that Lord Roseberj an old jiatron of the Sc"tti:h Football Association, wowd r ttend the match. Not only "as the pavilion decked in primrose and pink, but as a compli- ment. to him it was decided that the Scots team should also WOlr his colours, as we believe tbey did in the international against England in 188!. Shortly before half-past three loud cheering announced the arrival of Lord Rcse- bery, th ex-Premier being mot. warmly greeted with "He's a jolly good fellow" from the crowd, while the bond followed with "Scots wha hae." The next minute the Scotsmen '11 their primrose and pink hoops were led into tlbe field by Robertson, G. 0, Smith with the Englishmen in white soon foil lowing. Smith won the toss, and pl-.yed with the wind slightly in h8 favour. Scotland kicked off. For a few seconds play was in the centre, then Campbell worked down,' but A. Smith tailed to take his pass. However,' frmu a throw in the ball was given to M'Cotl and within the first minute the Scottish centre with a hard shot placed out of Robinson's reach, and scored for Scot.1a.nd. 8,thnd continued to press. Bell centreing well, but Crabtree headed back, and then Rr\i9be\ lwt in. Still play went in favour of Scotland, and' following further pressure. Walker worked through, and Robinson running out Bell dashed in and easily put the bal! in the let, scoring the seconel point for Scotland. In this work Oakley was d:tma.1. ,n:d thc game waR stopped for five minutes, bnt, luckily, the English back was "b.. tf) resume. A. Smith next centred, but Walker missed his kick, but the ball was shot over at last. The Englishmen worked dewn, and G. O. Smith made Rennie give away a corner, but the pressure on the Scot-tif-h goal was soon clwired. Tho crowd broke in but were driven hnck. England did betteT after this. hut. Chadwick kicked over the next, minute. Robinson saved a splendid shot from M'(' -11. Tiie English for- wards did not- get together, but Nectiham played up gallantly, and from one grnnd C>"lJtrc by Plant the &-ott-ish goal wa in great jeopardy, but A. Smith smartly cleared. M'Coll next dribbled down, passing out. to A. Smith, the latter centering to BPI I. who wa, off-side Pia., continued tremendously faM. Bloomer forcing a corner, but Chadwick kicked over. Ha-lf an hour from the start thp Spottish left worked down. and M'Coll "lored a third goal wit,h a strong shot. The Scottish halves wortad splendidly, and completely broke up any combination ny England, but af, last Athergmith dribbled down, and, Dnimmond only half clearing, Hlocmer rushed up and scored for Engbuid, Rennie having no chance to save. Soon after- ward-, Scotland were dangerous, when off-side saved England. The home side maintained the upper hand until just before the interval. England f.?"ld an unproductive comer, and then rcc¡¡, receiving from E??' ?<tr? Got- land's fourth goal r: m close in On resuming Robinson saved from M'Coll and Belt, in turn, in the first two minutes. All round the g'-ound the crowd had broken in but they kept, outside the cinder path, flome1. yards from the toTjch-Iines. Wi/son and Need- ham forced corners for Euglaud, but nothing came of them.

Barry won the toss, and kicked off ?ithth. -i-d and slant in their favour. The j open'ng stages of the game were fast but ■ painfully ragged. Barry had several chances to BCQre, but the hom«ter? drove them off. Once the Barry forwards looked like ?ring, till th,? left winger I- out t ?. wide, and .tl?d the opportunity. The fault of both -id.. the absence of combination. Barry were evidently the better team, and the home- sters at the .1_ of the first half were palpably di-t-led. H&!f.?me, no score. WMh the commencement of the second half the visitors woke up quite as much as the homesters went to pieoes, and soon after began scoring, Mitchell and King doing the needful. They seemed to have sprung suddenly into form. King added a third goal, after a bout of pretty work, from the opposite quarter of the field, and then the pace slackened down. The home team played up pluckily towards the end, and Elias, who had done well through- out, shot their only goal just before time was sounded. I Fin?MoM. Goals.
