THE BISLEY MEETING. The great event of the meeting was decided on Saturday, Lieutenant Thomson, of the Queen's Edinburgh, being proclaimed the winner of the Queen's Prize of X250, with gold medal and badge. His total score was 273, as against 270 made by the second man, Corporal Cowern, of the South Stafford. The Queen's Prizeman is in his 29th year, and prac- tises with his father in Edinburgh as a civil en- gineer. The last of the prize lists in connection with the shooting were issued on Monday, and the meeting was brought to an end. Mr. Winans, of the National Rifle Association, has had a remarkable degree of success in the revolver series, no less than ten 95 prizes falling to him, in addition to which he tied for an eleventh. ♦ A fire broke out at midnight on Tuesday in a furniture shop at Ufracombe, and it' spread so rapidly that in a few hours 34 houses and shops were destroyed.
