  MissScarlett: <We regret exceedingly to have to announce the death, on February 2nd, of Mr. H. G. Cole, at one time one of the most promising players in this country. As a boy he showed remarkably good form and he soon made a mark in London chess. In 1907 he went over to Ostend, to compete in the Amateur Tournament, and carried off fifth prize with a score of 12J out of 18, losing only one game, to G. Shories, the winner of the tournament. In 1911 Cole was selected to play for England in the cable match, losing to L. B. Meyer on the tenth board. In 1912 he competed in the British Championship at Richmond, tieing for second and third places with F. D. Yates, R. C. Griffith being first. Cole beat Griffith and drew with Yates, losing but one game, to H. B. Uber. Of recent years he did not quite maintain this form, being obviously handicapped by indifferent health. He died after an operation, but so unexpectedly that he had been listed to play for the Metropolitan in a League match on the very day of his death.>
