If a stray donkey or cow should happen to be on the field during an important match, it is highly desirable to select either one or the other for umpire, giving a preference to the donkey. Under no consideration whatever should an umbrella be offered to the umpire, unless there is no sun out, when a dozen or two should be handed to him. Evening City Item July 16, 1872 [from a list of sarcastic advice to the Athletic Club, suggesting that umpires sometimes were given umbrellas]
