Various are the phases of human nature apparent during the course of a football match, and a typical instance occurred during the course of the Old Boys-Eakaia Senior match at the Donnin Oval yes'erd«y. Shortly after a scrum had be<*n formed, a pkyor's foot was noticed to ba violently propollod in the direction of an opponent's shin, ami the outcome o? the contact was a resounding crack. The sequel thereto was the uprising of tbe injured orie from among the packed miss of humanity with a planrive appeal to the referee—" Pli-as", s>r, he's kicking rue on the shins." " Yes," retorted th« offender, " and T'll do it- again if yon clap your hands over my eyes"—an evidence of a savagery of disoosition which deserved but did not meet with a rebuke from the official in charge of the game.
