[COPYRIGHTED P.O.]
For the busy man who loves the sound
of a gun, yet who can only indulge in
a shooting- excursion once or twice a
year in tho season, it is a standing re
gret that his lack of practice between
seasons puts his hand out of trim for the
birds. Ho finds that he is by no means
as pood a shot at tho opening of the
season as ho was at the close of the pre
vious year, and it takes very nearly his
whole holiday to regain his old skill.
Jbit this is all being rapidly changed.
Trap shooting which has taken hold of
the public fancy to a very large extent
in recent years, affords the opportunity
for practice so greatly desired, and if
the sportsman is lucky enough to be a
member of a club, he can have all tho
practice ho wants at little loss of time
and small cost. He has the satisfaction,
too, when he takes his holiday, of find
ing himself no longer awkward and
blundering with the gun. His hand
and eye are quick, his aim is true and
he is able to hold his own with other
competitors in Lhc huntiiig-fkld.
Trap shooting was, until a few years
•go, confined almost wholly to profes
sionals, and very few amateurs were
fckillful enough to be ranked as experts.
Now, however, there are clubs in every
big city, and some of the amateur sports
men would not make at all a bad showing
even by the side of such distinguished
shots as Rogardus, Dr. Carver and other
noted guns of the trap and hunting
field.
The glass ball, formerly so popular in
matches at the traps, is now quite a
thing of the past. It is no longer used
in this country. A\ here live pigeons
are not employed under the llurlingham
Club rules which govern all matches
shot with live birds, the artificial clay
pigeon is the universal substitute. The
glass ball was discarded for the leason
that its brittleness made it liable to
break at the slightest contact with the
shot, and it was even a question whether,
under cortain conditions, actual contact
was necessary to shatter it.
Trap shooting with artificial birds is
©ne of the least expensive sports, yet
one of the most enjoyable. So many
impio\ements have been made recently
in the manufacture of clay pigeons that
the natural action of the bird is now
simulated with remarkable fidelity and

practice at the inanimate birds is con
sidered just as good for the murksman
Os though he were shooting at live pig
cons. A great many clubs use the arti
ficial birds exclusively, the most prom
inent in the East being the German
Oon Club, of New York, and the South
fide Club, of Newark, X. J. The favor

)ne of the birds formerly used had a
paper tongue but it was found that in
wet weather this would became limp
and refuse to work. The most reliable
have a clay or a wooden tongue. The
I best clay pigeons, w ben bought inquan
I titiea for the use of clulis. mist, about
two cents each.
i From a pecuniary n\ i* is a
very different thinp when ii.e b»rd-» are
used. In the season pigeons cost about
twenty-live cents apiece but in winter
the prirv :risup tosixty cents and even
higher.
In -"cent big matches shot in
tliis neighborhood (he birds cost an av
erage of two dollars apiece, and in a
match between Dr. Ktiupp and Major
Floyd Junes not long ago several huu
drod birds were killed, costing a dollar
i each. The pigeons for these contests
come frotn different parts of the coun
try, but the best art! from Baltimore,
where the famous Id up rock breed is
raised. The blue rock is a sraa i:

great many gunners who have not had
much Experience in live-bird shooting
make the mistake of selecting big bird
under the impression that they are the
strongest and the fastest fivers. Ex
perts, however, will pick out the small,
lirm bird, as they know by experience
that they will fly faster and are in every
way better suited for the traps.
In shooting either at live or artificial
birds a good deal depends upon the
weather. Windy weather has an effect
both on the flight of the live birds and
the artificial ones. If the day be hard
and cold and pretty windy, the live
birds get up wilder and the clay ones
naturally sail faster with the wind,
All matches at artificial birds are shot
from three or five traps set level, five
yards apart, in the stgment of a circle
or in a straight line and numbered con
secutively. These traps should throw
the birds from forty to sixty yards. The
puller stands six feet behind the shooter
and pulls at the latter's command. If
he pulls too early, the marksman can
refuse the bird and he is then entitled
to another. In single bird shooting,
the rise is regulated according to the
gun used and runs from thirteen to
eighteen yards in doubles it is from
eleven to sixteen yards. With
singles, one barrel only is loaded at a
time.
Position has a good deal to do with
success in trap shooting. Although the
marksman in all except the National
association clubs may assume any
standing attitude he pleases, he will
find most of those of his own choice
ungraceful and ineffective. The late
Ira Paine used to stand with the stock
of his gun almost resting on his risrht
hip and the barrels raised to an angle
of forty-five degrees ready for tho
word.
Bogardus invariably held his pun be

rules. Dr. Carver's pose is unique. Ilis
left arm is held perfectly straight, the
left hand grasping the barrel far for
ward and the stock of the gun near but
not pressing the chest below the armpit.
The position officially adopted by the
National association and approved by
the best clubs is to have the stock of
the gun held lightly below the armpit,
a little higher than the elbow, the bar
rel raised to a level with the chin, the
head erect and the feet squarely placed,
with the left foot advanced. This po
sition calls for the least change before
the shot is actually delivered.
Another important consideration is
the gun. Eastern experts, while using
a variety of guns, differing widely as
to weight and bore, have about conclud
ed that the lighter the gun the better.
The day of heavy-weight guns for trap
or wing shooting has passed away. The
Francotte gun, the Scott. Greener, Wes
ley and Richards are widely used.
These guns cost all the way from nine
teen to five hundred dollars. A good,
hard-hitting gun with Damascus steel
barrels. English walnut stock, check
ered and engraved, can be bought for
fifty dollars and upward.
In loading for trap shooting, for a
twelve-guago gun, three drams of powder
and two wads a?'© put back of one or
one and one-eighth ounces of No. 6, S
or 10 chilled shot, according to wind and
distance.
Under the rules of the National and
American Association which have been
revised within the last few weeks any
weight gun is permissible, but it must
not be over ten-bore in calibre. The
powder chargo is unlimited and the
charge of shot for ten-bore guns is fixed
at one and one-quarter ounces. Each
contestant must shoot at three or more
birds before leaving tho score. In
doubles both traps are sprung simul
taneously and each contestant shoots at
three pairs, firing at two birds while
both are in the air. When the traps are
set in a straight line, instead of in the
segment of a circle, a rapid-firing sys
tem is used, the traps are screened and
numbered and the marksman stands op
posit. the first trap, shoots his bird and
then passes on to the right shooting
from the successive traps till he reaches
the end of his score.

The best vay for a company of ama

Let then) first secure their ground and
then buy three traps for clay birds,
which will cost them about two dollars.
These traps can throw any kind of
artificial bird, and are easily changed
to shoot in ail directions. A first-class
afternoon's sport at the clays won't cost
the members over two dollars each, al
low ing tbom forty shots apiece. They
should dig a pit on the ground about I
three or four feet deep, and protect, it
by a screen for the use of the men who
si't the traps. If th

by two iron pins driven through the
bottom and into the ground. It consists
of six pieces held together by hinges
and so arranged that when sprung to
release the pigeon the top and sides,
front and rear, shall fall outward, leav
ing the whole affair fla, on the ground.
There is a lateral sliding door on the
rear end, through which the bird is ad
milted, and the front is barred like a
coop. In the center of the trap is a
metal or wooden tongue, pivoted on a
spring, and to this tongue a red rag
is attached. To spring the trap the
puller takes hold of a cord attached to a
leather strap on top a single tug re
leases the forw-end of the top and as it
comes up. the sides and ends fall away
with a clatter. Ant-he same instant the
spring on the tonguo is released and
the bird, startled by tho noise and the
sight of the red rag, flies upward with
a rush.
In two cases lately brought by the
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals in Trenton and Philadelphia,
the decisions were in favor of the right
of the clubs to shoot live birds. A few
of the States still prohibit pigeon shoot
ing. Connecticut being one of them but
in New ork, New .Jersey, Pennsyl
vania and in the West generally, the
sport is allowed.
ANCIENT LIBRARIES.
Before tli* I)l*rovery of Primine, liooka
Were Very I.nrjje ami Heavy.
The discovery of the art of printing
wrought many curious changes but in
no respect was the transformation more
striking, perhaps, than in the appear
ance of library interiors. So long as
books were written by scribes upon
leaves of parchment it followed of neces
sity that matter which might now be
compressed into a small duodecimo filled
what is called a folio—a book of the
shape and size of a huge ledger.
So heavy were these folios, that the
wits of the day asserted that ladies read
books whicn tney could not 11ft.
It was customary to ornament only
the upper cover, and in order to show
the carving, chasing and enamel work,
the book was invariably laid upon its
side.
lo protect the work of the silversmith
or carver, the work was usually encased
in a thin leather cover, called its
"farol," the edges of which met in
front of the book, where they were tied
together by leather thongs, so that all
dust and dirt might be excluded.
lo distinguish one book fromanother,
the title was written upon a parchment
tag which was fastened to the thongs of
the farel or to the metal clasps often
made use of. It was not unusual, also,
to inscribe the title upon tho clasp itself,
or even upon the front edges of the
book.
From what has been said, it will oc
cur to the reader that the first thing to
meet the eye upon entering one of these
old book rooms was line upon line of
books, lying fiat upon the shelves with
their front edges turned outward—a
very different sight from that presented
by a modern library, with its shelves of
books all standing on end with their
backs brilliantly ornamented.
Hut the makers of these old folios did
attempt to beautify tho edges of their
books. This process was termed
"gauffering." The book was placed in
a press and the edges were gilded, after
which a delicate tracery was worked
upon the edge by indenting it with a
steel die struck by a small hammer. In
other cases symbols and verses were
painted in bright colors upon the front
edges so that, after all. tho appea.ance
of one of these old libraries was not
quite so dreary as might at first be sup
posed. —\outh's Companion.

BONNETS AND HATS.
Principal Feature* of tlie I .a test Importa
tions of .Millinery.
The latest importations of fine French
millinery show a preponderance of the
fancy Tuscan straws, in open-work pat
known as "lace-straws." 'There are few
bonnets of hats of a single material il
the brim is of open-straw then the
crown is velvet or of plain lace trans
parent enough show the hair through
or it is omitted and tho open space
merely Vlled with velvet ribbons and
loops. There are some dainty little
French toques which are merely ban
deaux of flowers and lace the space
where the crown should be left open
just enough to display the coiffure.
Another feature of the coming bonnet is
the use of velvet ribbon. This ribbon ap
pears as bows and ties in various widths.
In a two-inch width, the ties are not
bowed under the chin but merely twisted
together and pinned on either side with
a jewelled pin. Other bonnets and hats
are trimmed with slender bows com
posed of many loops of narrow velvet
ribbon, and are completed by ties of the
same width, which are left long to be
tied by the wearer under the chin or in
any way she fancies. Scarf-strings of
delicate crape or gauze, or barbs of black
chantilly lace, are used on other bon
nets, and are to be twisted loosely to
gether and fastened with studied care
lessness on the left shoulder by a dia
mond or rare-jewelled pin of any kind.
While most millinery is composed of
black straw trimmed with color, there
are some charming little toques- for all
bonnets are toques, short at the ears
with strings from the back which are
made of dark-ljlue and brown lace-straw
trimmed with blossoms in harmonizing
colors and coronet effect. Still other
bonnets are in black velvet and white
straw, and are made with a brim of
rough-and-ready braid, tho hollow
crown of the bonnet crossed by velvet
ties, and partly vailed by the clusters
of loops of the velvet ribbon that trim
tho brim.
An exquisite little toque with a white
Tuscan straw brim is a harmony in
violets and dead leaf brown. The open
work brim holds a face-trimming of
violets and the open crown is vailed
with loops of brown velvet ribbon and
crossed by the wide ties of the same,
which hold a tiny cluster of violets at
the back and are left to be twisted in
front and pinned with gold or en
amelled violet pins. Full wreaths of
pansies in ail the gold and purple of tho
natural flower trim the brim of other
bonnets with transparent crownsof black
lace.
Pale lettuce and celery tints of green
are additions to the vegetable colors of
the season. These .shades aro used
boldly in velvet ribbons, which ara
frilled around the outside, edge of large
black chip hats, trimmed with clusters
of hrench daises and foliage and black
velvet bows. Pansies and roses wreath
