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.
