DONS AT INVERNESS. Select Side Beaten By Three Goals.
On the last day of their holiday in the north of Scotland, during which they have played three games, Aberdeen last night met a select of Inverness teams, and, winning by three goals to nil, they let the Invernessians down lightly.
Bob McDermid got a goal early on, and not long after Mitchell beat his own goalkeeper, when a deflected shot struck the bar. That was the sum total of the scoring during the half, but the First Division team did not stretch itself unduly. The second half was not many minutes started when Galloway, with a long raking shot, beat Henderson for the third time.

Quiet Game.

Afterwards even more leniency was shown by the Dons' forwards, but when the pace was reduced to a crawl the Aberdeen forward line put on pressure and infused some life into the game. Near the end one shot troubled Smith. It came from McBain, and was a hard drive from the wing, but the Dons' 'keeper got it away safely. Later F. Mackenzie had bad luck when his shot struck the upright.

During the day, the members the Aberdeen club enjoyed a drive to Culloden Moor and Cawdor Castle.
