AKARANA RIFLE CLUB. The members of the Akarana Rifle Club fired their usual weekly trophy competitions on their range at Penrose on Saturday afternoon. There was a good attendance of members. The wind was very tricky, as the 600 yds mound was reached, and it was found very hard to keep on the bull's eye. In the B class, firing for E. Porter and Co.'s trophy,. Mr M. Atkinson beat Mr A. C. Watson on the tie with 89 for first place, Mr W. S. Moore being next with 87, while Mr A. G. Devore, with 90, the highest score of the day, was highest scorer ln the B class for Captain W. H. Shepherd's trophy, Mr E. Reardon being next with 85. Messrs M. Atkinson and A. G. Devore take the club's usual weekly trophies. The best individual range scores were: At 500 yds, the 46 each of Messrs M. Atkinson, A. C. Watson, J. F. Atkinson, and W. J. Wheeler, and, at 600 yds, the 45 of Mr A. G. Devore, and the 44 of Mr J. Clark. NO. 3 NATIVE RIFLES. / The No. 3 Native Rifles fired a match at Penrose on Saturday last for a half-yearly trophy -presented 'by Lieut.. Kretschmar.. The conditions were: Seven shots and one optional slghter each at 200 and 600 yds. The shooting at 200 yds was of a very fair order, but at 600 it fell away considerably owing to the dull light and the changeable wind, which varied from three degrees, left to two right. The following are the leading scores:—Col.-Sergt. A. J.. King, 63; Corporal W. Colquhoun, 59; Corporal Hare, 59; Bergt. A. E. Kretschmar, 58; Sergt. R. Daniel, 58; Pte. C. J. Huntly, 56; Sergt. C.
