Caledon Secure Two Large Contracts

Greenmarket F.C.
The Greenmarket football team appeared on new ground on Tuesday, when eleven in a row, they were lined up before Bailie Paton at the Police Court on a charge of playing their game to the annoyance of the public. The Bailie remarked that the accused must be an "eleven" and the boys did not object to the designation. Two of the older lads had been previously convicted, and they were ordered to pay half a crown, or go to prison for 12 hours. Five of them were fined 1s, with the alternative of six hours' imprisonment; while the other four were admonished.

Scarcity of Fish Supply

What practically amounts to a fish famine prevails in Dundee at present. Supplies are small while there is a keen demand for fish, so that abnormally high prices prevail. On Thursday morning only two trawlers came into port, and their catches were small. Haddock, which as a rule sell at an average of about 14s per box, fetched 38s per box.
