eupeiintendeut of tho dat school for Chlnero
boys connected with Chinese Mission No. 1 at

This mission, tho first In tho city, was es
tablished In lKilS at l'lvo Points, hud tvas then
under the enro of Mlas ISoodrlch, About fif
teen years ago the Hoard of r'orolgn Missions
of the Presbyterian Chuich took this mission
under enre, nnd moved it up town. Three
years later the Uonrd selected Mr. Hulo as Its
superintendent. Ho Is endowed with the In
dustrious, patient, economical, and ingenlour
traits of tho Chinese race. Added to tlmso
he has a collegiate oducntlon. rocelted here.
It was not until four jenrs ago that .Mr. Hulo
saw his way clear to establishing a day school
for Chinese bojs. His Idea was to glto to such
aa wanted It a primal) Kugllsh education that
would lit them to ontor other schools. At
once about n dnron Unit, sons of mnrrluuils
and laundryiuen In tho clt, eoled on this op

TnouAflTON, Conn., Nov. 12. -There wore
lively times at Lester Oral's old-fa-hloned
Thanksgiving shooting match over near Mount
Tom, In the Milton country, on Tuesday, dray
Is an elderly Yankee farmer, w ho is as sharp In
driving a trade as the host of his tnwnrmcn, and
hla annual ThanWlvIng shoots have been an
attraction for many years. From tho fart tint
there has been lately some objection on thopnrt
of friends of the boilety for the Pretention of
Cruelty to Animals tu the shooting of live birds
at Gray's matches, the Rlmolwas held fuller
than nstial this reason to aioltt any possibility
of Interference from tho iiffleiTs of the law.
Someof thebest shots In Litchfield coutilvin iko
a practice of attending these otents. which nro
called "field trials" by I'trmor ilrny.
Abont sevcnty.flte men nnd bojs wero nt
Tuosday's shoot, tvb'cli was confined to Iho
killing of chickens with shotguns nt ten tods at
10 rents per shot, and the slaughter or turkeys
with rifles at forty roils at an rents per built t.
Tor those who did not caio to shoot at live
fowl. Gray bad provided circular targets of
sea-ontd chestnut wood, about lite Inches In
diameter, to be eli'lt nt for chickens only,
"three shot to stick In the ring." At Ins
former "field trials" Gray has been accused by
eome of the r limiting fruti rnlty of ccrfiiu sharp
prartlcos, by means of which ho his been bene
fited nt their expeme, nnd, although he con
vincingly denies this Impeachment of his In.
tegrlty, several attempts were made by his
patrons at this week's alTalr to get even with
the old man for alleged wrongs
The shooting went merrily enough until Hank
Pratt arrived at about Ii.' o'clock. At this time
Gray hnd lost thirty pairs nf chlikcns and
twenty-three turkeys, his receljits for tho same,
however. Iielng aulto sntlsfaclors lo blm In
arranging the bird" to be shot ut the thickens
were perched on top of a bov to which they
wire tied by ono leg and Ihe marksmen were
not lecardod as having won a bird until they
hnd wounded It severely enough to cause It to
fall down. Some of tho chickens were shot at
twenty times before they fell. The turKoys
wero suspended b the legs from a rail. These
fowl wore awarded to the marksmen drawing
blood on thorn.
Hank Pratt Is a burly farmer and a fairly
good rifle shot. He lives on Yellow Mountain
As all the marksmen present were awaro that
Hank and Gray hail a dl-pute over shooting at
the last year's " field trials" and that Hank had
towed to get siinaro with Gray this yntr. all
ejes wero centred upon Prntt as he drew bead
upon a fat torn turkey which t'.raj'a scoro
marker had hung upon the rail. Pratt fired nt
the turkey, and Neil Wee-els, the marker.almoat
Immediately called out "a rl'iger. ' meaning
that Hank's bullet had drawn blo.nl on tho
turkej. and that the bird, coiistiUi nll),wahis.
Pratt tired at a second turkey, and won again:
at a third witli the same re-nlt, nt a tnurlh
with equal Kucces, rttiil at a fifth, which ho
killed outright. At this Juiu tore lira calletl
out to slop. All of the mark-men had "topped
