Rifle Notes

Our shooting season is drawing to a close. Saturday, August 1st, is the day fixed for the final shoot for the Cup, and we have had a very pleasant series of practices.

Class A

An alteration

I am going to change the monthly collection (August 23rd) to a special object, viz., the National Society, which, in view of the Parliamentary invasion of the Church, we are asked to support. We shall know more about this Society on the Sunday mentioned, as we are to have a special preacher sent to us at one of the Services, morning or evening.
