MALPAS. OPENING OF RIFLE RANGE.âOn Thurs- day night, in the presence of a numerous assembly of ladies and gentlemen, the new miniature rifle range was opened by Captain R. W. Ethelston, who has taken a special in terest. in the movement since its inception. In opening the range, the Captain said it was open to all membere of the institute. He took the opportunity of thanking Mr. St. John Oharlton, on behalf of Lord Cholmondeley, for giving the groand upon which the range was erected, and he also thanked the ladies who assisted the funds by their efforts at the con- cert, which took place some time ago in aid of the funds. He (the Captain) trusted that those present would give the movement their support, ani that the range would swell the membership of the institute, of which he was president. He declared the rifle range open. (Applaase-.)âThe Rev. L. Armitstead said they all knew that the establishment of the range was entirely due to the generosity of Captain Ethetsl^n, and he (the speaker) was only too glad to thank him, for without the captain's help it would havo been impossible for them to have erectod it. The Institute Committee thought that upon so fitting an occasion they would present Mrs. Et-helston, the lady who so kindly got up the recent concert in support of the institute, with a rifle as a memento of tha occasion, and as a token of the good wishes to Captain and Mrs. Ethel- stcn, from the membere of the institute, not a single member of which had refused to sub- scribe to the present. He therefore had great pleasure in presenting Mrs. Ethelston with a rifle and a pair of glasses, and he hoped that she would, when using the rifle, shoot straight and hit the mark in the same way that the captain and herself had reached the hearts of the people of Malpas by their many kind acta of munificence. (Applaase )-Captain Ethel- ston thanked them for there kindness.âSubse- quently Captain Ethelston and the Rev. L. Armitstead were the first to use the range, firing five rounds each with capital effect. The range is 103 feet long ard 13 feet wide, and is well lighted with gas. Tho rifles used are of the miniature Martini Henri type, as used in the Army. 4
