    Background: More than a week of almost continuous hard frost in Holland has coated the trees and fields with glistening hoar-frost and covered the canals, lakes and drainage ditches with thick ice. Conditions for skaters are ideal and they are to be seen in great numbers everywhere, particularly the children - many of whom are given skating time off from school.

    At Herveld-Andelst, near Nijmegen, in the South of Holland, the grace-and-style skating championship of the Province of Gelderland was held on 10th February, and was won by two well-known experts in this particular pleasing and graceful form of skating: Miss Wayboer and Mr.Hazelbach.
