SECOND DAT OF THE SCH?TZENFEST.
Tbe Eugle Shooting-First Prise Won
hy the Carol!na?-Heavy Firing-On
th?Tight Hope-Amusement!, Sic.
Yesterday moraine dawned bright and
clear, portending another pleasant day lor
the merry-makers at the German Festival.
At an early hour the riflemen and their fami?
lies were to be seen driving up to the Platz,
and soon the grounds and booths were again
alive and filled with people. By degrees the
visitors began to arrive, and poured Into the
gateway ia a steady stream, which Increased
In volumes as the day wore on. The sharp
breeze irom the northeast put those little
pests, the sand flies, completely hors du com?
bat, and throughout the grounds bevies of
young girls, noisy small boys and quiet cou?
ples could be Been enjoying themselves ac?
cording to their various bents. The small
people surrounded the carousals, and made
the welkin ring with shouts of glee as they
went careering around upon the fiery, un?
tamed rocking horses. Others played games
upon the thick carpet ol grass, and young
couples of maturer ages etrolled around in the
shade ol the trees or sat watching the pictur?
esque scene from the convenient benches be
neath the splendid oaks, which form the mostj
conspicuous ornaments In the front part ol
\Sarget shooting, as usual, formed the chief j
attraction ot the day for the riflemen, and as
early as nine o'clock the sharp cracking of the
rifles announced that the marksmen had be?
gun business. The regular targets worked
with a precision and regularity which reflect?
ed high credit upon the arrangements made
by Mr. F. Ansel, the veteran target-master.
The eagle was also placed upon the top of
the mast, at a distance of a little less than two
hundred yards from the booth, and the shoot?
ing at the royal bird begun in the order Axed
by the drawing on the preceding day. As the
members were called, those who were there
stepped forward and took their shots, while
those who were absent lost their turn. The
shooting at the bird was of the most exciting
nature, aud for some lime the royal plumage
remained unruffled. About ball-past twelve
L>'clock he began to show signa of distress when
seen through a telescope, and soon a part of the
crown was allot away. The beak and wing
were next brought down by Mr. F. Von San
ten, but, as the erown was the mark lor the
time, the prize for the beak and wing reverts
to the club. The shooting continued, and the
bead and crown were next shot away by Mr.
Ellison A. Smythe, of the Carolina Bifle Gub.
The shot was made with the common Win?
chester rifle, and the marksman seenred the
congratulations of having won the first prize aB
be came back from the marsh with the larger
part of the crown, which bad fallen to the
shot.' As the head was not the part shot at
for the time, this prize also reverts to the
club. This success lent new life to the eagle
shooting, and the bird Buffered corresponding?
ly. The Bext mark was the bali held in the
right claw, which ^as brought to the ground
In handsome style by a Bhot from Mr. L. Dun
nemann, one of the ex-kings ol the clnb.
The bird stood under a heavy fire for the rest
of the day, but retained his corporoalty with?
out any further loss of limb. The sceptre In
the left claw is the next at which the riflemen
THE TAUGET OF HONOR
was also put up at the usual distance, to be
shot at between the hours of one and two
o'olook P. M. The target ls eighteen Inches
square, with a white bull's-eye In the centre
four Inches Ia diameter. Each member of the
German Bifle Club is entitled to a single shot
at the target, and all of the prizeB presented
to the club will be given to the best shots
made at this target. Eight shots were fired at
lt yesterday, only four of which struck the tar?
get. These foar were all In the green, and not i
one touched the bull's-eye. In addition to the
Singer's sewing machine, the silk hat from Mr.
ANOTHER VALUABLE PRESENT
has been sent to the club by the well-known
firm of Messrs. Barth ouse Bros. A Co.. of
Louisville, Ey. This ls neither more nor less
than a half-barrel ol their celebrated Gold
dust whiskey. The whiskey ls a pure Ken?
tucky article, of fine flavor, and will form one
of the most valuable prizes to be contended
lor.ou the target of honor. There will doubt
lessbe some close shooting done for this valu?
A SHARP CONTEST
lor the first prize at the regular target shoot?
ing ls In progress, and grows daily more close.
Yesterday the two crack shots were at work
early and late, and between the two they
scored over one hundred centre shots. As
the- shooting progresses their aim becomes
more accurate, and if the contest ls kept up
the number of centres made by each during
the week will be something unusual In the
annals of shooting festivals. The total num?
ber of centre shots made on the first day by
all the marksmen was one hundred and
twenty-seven, and yesterday two hundred and
fl tly-fl ve. The Carolina's are getting the hang
of it too, and some of their members carry a
goodly number of centres, which show a vast
improvement over last year's shooting.
Towards, four o'clock
THE VISITORS TO THE GROUNDS
began to arrive In still larger numbers. The
trains from the city were Ailed with a living
freight of all ages and both sexes, and every
moment the omnibuses, dog-carts and im?
promptu wagon-hackB deposited their loads of
passengers at the gate. Prominent among
these vehicles ls the Robert*- Douglass, a new
and stately carry-all put upon the route by the
enterprising Mr. Gates. The vehicle ls com?
modious, and built like a slreet-car. It ls
nea?ty finished within, and the running cur?
tains of light blue cloth around the open sides
give it an air of inviting coolness which
pedestrian cannot resist. The steamer of the
Mount Pleasant Ferry Company also furnished
another pleasant mode of reaching the Platz,
of which a large number of visitors took ad?
vantage. A side entrance to the grounds ls
kept open for the especial benefit of the lat?
ter. When the crowd was at its height,
made bis appearance in fancy costume, and
shouts from every side announced that the
tight-rope performance was about to begin.
Straightway hundreds ol heads were thrown
- back Into a star-gazing, neck-breaking posi?
tion, and all watched the movements of the
professor as he ran nimbly up the ladder and
made his appearance on the top of the main
building. From the ridge ol the roof, on the
north end, a wire had been stretched to the
top of a lol ty pine, some sixty yards off. The
wind was blowing a strong breeze, but the
daring funambulist pasaed and repassed over
the tense wire with perfect ease. A second
time he appeared with his pole, and, to the
horror ol the weak-nerved, the lower part of |
his body, from the waist downward, was en?
veloped in a strong crocus bag. With this
Impediment he accomplished the distance to
the pine and back In safety, while the crowd
below held their breath in the anticipation of |
so dire catastrophe. A third lime he ap?
peared, and on his lofty pei ch swaggered
along over the wire, dressed ?e an old
woman, with a most intolerable Grecian bend.
At the end o? this, Professor Bond (who
seemed to be perfectly satisfied with his lease
ol life) once'more walked to the'centre of
the open space and began skinning innumer?
able cats, and performing other gymnastic
.feats, with all the composure of a turner with
i in three feet of the ground. These diversions
wera bailed with repeated cheers. The
continued In full blast. The c limbers of the
greasy pole were out in force, and seemed
never tired of assnylog their unctuous task.
Six little darkies were placed upon a bench
and each tarnished with a cigar, with a re?
ward of five cent? lor the one who first finish?
ed the weed. All light up and puff away
like steam engines, when suddenly a cigar
explodes with a cloud of smoke, and the half
choking smoker hurries on to the end. The
others smoke more warily, but meet in turn
with the same discomfiture amid the shouts
and laughter of the crowd.
The charging at the bucket is kept up as ir
the tilters enjoyed the wetting as much as the
surrounding crowd did to see them drenched.
Hunting for an egg ia an enclosed space by
Borne six or seven blindfolded urchins, each
armed with a long switch, is another favorite
diversion; and continuous hurdle races, by
small boys enveloped in sacks, afford a never
falling subject for laughter, as the competitors
struggle along and roll over in their anxiety to
be first In and win the prize. In one of the
b:oths a band of negro minstrels are perform?
ing on the bones, tamborine and banjo, and in
another the visitor ls diverted by the uncouth
antics of a colored youth dressed up after the
fashion of an ape, and looking the character
to the life. In every part of the extensive
grounds some amusement ls in progress, and
wherever the visitor turns shouts of laughter
Silule his ears. Everybody is enjoying him- j
self or herself, and the time passes away In the
pleasantest manner. Later in the afternoon
THE DANCING HALL
was still beue?_patronlzed than usual, and
crowds of young people and old were tripping j
lightly to the sound of inspiring music. The
dancing began at noon, and continued with
unabated vigor until the shades of evening
fell last, and the crowd began to move off to?
wards the trains walting at the end of the
During the afternoon the visiting riflemen
were handsomely entertained by their hosts,
and passed a pleasant hour In the Interchange
of social compliments, Ac. The number of
visitors at the FeBt was much larger than on
the preceding day, and the whole appearance
Cf the Platz was no lest brilliant. The ar?
rangements, amusements and all the sur- I
ronndings of the festival are all well managed,
and the second day of the Fest passed off as
pleasantly as the day before, and was voted
unanimously a splendid success. i
