Not illustrated. 1874 edition. Excerpt: ...from Ogdensburg and Prescott to an oyster supper, with "beef and greens," at P. O'Meara's. Everything was got up in Pat's best style. The chair was ably filled by the President, A. Gilmour, Esq., supported by W. Congalton, President of the Burns, Ogdensburg, and the Hon. Peter Mitchell, while the vice-chair was occupied by R. Lees, supported by Mr. Mundle, of the Prescott Club, and Henry Inglis, of the Ottawa. After the cloth was removed, or rather the eatables disposed of, the chairman proposed the toast of "The Queen." Other toasts followed in rapid sue cession, and in reply to "The Ogdensburg and Prescott Clubs," Mr, Somerville responded in the following original song composed at the table: We hae sangs aboot aething and sangs o' anither, Boot shooting and cricket an' ba', man; But to sing aboot curling gets me in a swither, Tho' curlin' has baith rhyme an' law, man. But tho' singing o' curlin' noo rins in my head, 'Boot channel stanes, hog scores an' tee man; I ken nae wha skips, nor wha taks the lead, Or wha pits the pat-lid on the tee, man. The Ogdensburg boys and the braw Prescott chaps, Keen curlers and warm-hearted friens, man; Cam o'er just to try their hand at the game Wi' Ottawa--for beef and greens, man. An' tho' Ottawa's won, we'll no crow o'er croose, For curling's a very slippery game, man, An' some ither day we may chance just to lose, But aye keep our tempers the same, man. The "Red, White and Blue" was sung in five style by Mr. Lord, of Ogdensburg, after which songs by Messrs. Inglis, Hutchinson, A. Gilmour, R. S. Cassels, T. Gallagher and W. M. Somerville, rendered the meeting one of the merriest of the season. MILWAUKEE vs. THISTLE, Chicago. MILWAUKEE. THISTLE. Alex. McKay, James Craig, ...
