The entries for the Sheffield aie highly satisfactory, being more representative of. the colony's athletes than formerly. Among the entrants are Xicholls (."Victoria), L. C. McLaughlan (Napier), _ Chalmers (Wanganui), Hutchins (Christchurch), Bennett, Henderson, Collie, Watson, Collins (Dunedin), Spring (Timaru), Robinson (Riverton, Currie and Cuning'ham (Ileriot), Hatton ami Dunn (Milton), and several local enthusiasts, including a few practically untried men. The handicaps will be published at an early date, when it is expected that the majority of the men will accept.

Irving, tiho popular starter, will handle the pistol for the Shefflefd and 75 yards handicaps, and Mr J. S. Murphy will again officiate as judge. Quoits having "caught on” again in several districts, it was decided to offer a threeguinea silver cup for first and a. gold medal for second prize.
