THE GRACE TESTIMONIAL The appeal of the Daily Telegraph for subscriptions towards the proposed “Shilling Testimonial” to Dr. W. G. Grace is being so liberally responded to by all sorts and conditions of men that the Champion will receive a very solid and substantial proof of the admiration with which his countrymen regard his prowess in the cricket field. In this truly national testimonial it is peculiarly fitting that the members of the medical profession, to which Dr. Grace belongs, should take part. As doctors we feel an interest in the great cricketer as a splendid example of what exercise and training under the guidance of a knowlege of the laws of health, can do for the development and preservation of physical vigour; and as Englishmen we are not less proud of him as a representative of all that is best and most wholesome in manly sports.
