Messrs. TYSON and TAYLOR.

A "clay" pigeon shooting was held at Woolpack Inn on Saturday, and some
capital sport was furnished. The first prize, a set of carvers, was won by J. E.
HARTLEY, 7 out of 10; second, copper kettle, by F. DIXON, 3 out of 5.

Sweepstakes were got up, and the winners were:

J. E. HARTLEY, F. DIXON, G. HARTLEY, and J. GRAVES. The competition was an
all-round success, though the old time shooters think they go too fast nowadays.
