For the Enfield Association Cup the highest score was made by Lieut. P. Cunliffe, 26th Cheshire, 34 points. At the Running Deer Range, for which a running man was substituted, no less than 538 shot were fired, and out of them only six bullseyes made (a circle of six inches near the position of the heart), of these two bullseyes were made by M. Von Hacht, of the Belgian Brigade. The Running Prize was a most interesting feature. offered by Earl Dacia, is one in which the competitor is allowed five minutes, in which he is to fire as many shots as he ean, but after each pair of shots he has to carry his rifle, ammunition, &c., round a post 50 yards off, loading when he likes, but not capping until he arrives at the firing point. Mr. Peterkin, who last year won this prize with a score of 47 against the Earl of Aberdeen, as second., with 46, made in his first essay this year 44. For the first stage of the Queen's Prize, 5 shots, at 500 yards, the highest scores made were—Captain Prentice (5th Middlesex), 19; Private J. B. Smith (1st Surrey, 18; Private Jennings (29th North Middlesex), 18 and ten others, each with 18 points. The principal winners of Albert Prizes were-at 200 yards, 5 shots, Lord Bury; and at the 500 yards range Private C. Ross (15th Middlesex), who each made the highest possible score of 20 points. The Prince of Wales paid a visit to the camp shortly after mid-day on Friday, and having partaken of re- freshment in Lord Eicho's tent, made a tour of the shooting points, at many of which he fired, without, however, showing himself any great adept at rifle shooting. The running deer appeared to afford the greatest amusement to his Royal Highness, who having made a shot which struck the forbidden haunch, had in condonation of the offence, to hand over the fine of one shilling, which he cheerfully paid. The Prince left the camp about seven o'clock. The great event of the day was the completion of the competition for the first stage of the Queen's Prize. The result was that Private James, of the 22nd Middle- sex (Queen's Westminsters), having made the highest score of 48 points, became the absolute winner of the silver medal, the < £ 50, and the match rifle and silver badge of the association.
