The Curling Rink

The Curling Rink

The great Scottish winter game brings lords and commons, farmers, ministers, and artisans on to an equality. Lord Balfour of Burleigh summed up the democracy of curling thus:-There, if anywhere, the best man is the man who can meet the ever-changing conditions of a varying game. On one occasion when I was travelling to Carsebreck-in a third-class carriage, I might mention, I heard two friends at the other end of the carriage say, the one to the other;

" Eh, Sandy, I see you are drawn against a Lord."
" Well, it may be so," said Sandy, " but mebbe I will be the lord before the night is done."
