RANDOM SHOOTING.

MAN INJURED.

Hamilton, June 8. Captain McLeod, Wild Weßt showman, who was recently fined at Auck land for random shootiDg with a pea rifle, brought! himself into further prominence on Saturday night at the Waikato winter show. A part of McLeod's performance is to bore boles with bullets through three fancy pieces held up by members of the audience, and shoot off the ash on the cigarette in people's mouths.

A prosecution is probable.
