GUN CLUB MEETS. Does Some Trap Shooting Monday Rush Razee Gives Exhibition in Fancy Shooting. The members of the Denison Gun club held a shoot at their traps, west of the city, Monday afternoon. Some good scores were made, but not as good as could have been made if the wind had not been so strong. Rush Razee, the renowned trick shot, who was here demonstrating the Reming ton firearms and shells, did some won derful trap shooting, killing all birds at which he shot. After the trap shooting Mr. Razee entertained the spectators with some fancy shooting, using the Remington rifle, shot gun and revolver. One of the prettiest exhibitions was the shooting of a fly ing target with both sights of the gun obstructed. He also shot two targets, using two pistols and firing them botli upside down. Probably the most diffi cult shot which he made was the triple mirror shot. A plate was used for a target, one mirror placed on the gun, another in his cap and the third mirror he held in his hand. At the first attempt the plate was broken. It was the opinion of all present that Mr. Razee was the best shot with a rifle, shot gun and revolver that has ever been seen in Denison. HORSHOE PITCHING REDIVIVUS. It gives us much pleasure to record that horseshoe pitching is coming into its own again. On* in Crawford coun ty, Iowa, they have several local horseshoe pitching clubs and from time to time they meet each other for championship matches. Down in In diana Charles W. Fairbanks, former vice president, is to meet John M. Studebaker, millionaire wagon maker, for the state championship at horse shoe pitching. From numerous other vicinities come similar bits of news of an encouraging revival of this pastime. Pitching horseshoes is a grand old ame. It is democratic. Its homeliness is its great merit. Nobody is barred as far as cost is concerned. Horse shoes for the sport may be borrowed of any good-natured blacksmith, and any vacant spot of ground will do, providing it is some twenty or thirty feet long and wide enough to swing your arms in. Social standing or wealth cuts no figure. If you will re call the old days in your town, some of the best matches of the season were fought out between the town deadbeat and the banker. It puts men on a comipon level with each other :aud makes them forget the distinction that ordinarily divides them. It is a convenient -game it can be played anywhere, at any time, with out a lot of preliminary fussing about it. It is a good game for young and old alike, and even women and girls may aspire to some proficiency in it. It is a sociable game, with plenty of time for good-natured banter or talk aibout the crops or politics, or gossip albout the absent. If you ever lived in a little town ^•ou will recall the horseshoe pitching grounds underneath the shade of the tall cottonwoods in front of the old blacksmith shop, or else on a side street near the postoffice. You will recall the familiar characters, 'Hank,' "Bill," "Dock" and all the rest, who met there regularly to exercise their sKSIl with the shoes. You will recall the crowd that sat on the benches near, or stood around, jesting, laugh ing. and now and then debating noisily some close point. You will recall the excitement when a shoe sailed through the air prettily and landed full around the peg, a ringer, and settled the match. And as you recall these things, you will agree that the freedom, the unrestraint, the democracy, the sim plicity of it all made it great fun. 'itching horseshoes is homely sport, but with its homeliness it has tine qualities that golf and tennis and the like never can have.—Register and Leader. We call attention to the statement of the First National bank, which ap pears in this issue. With assets ap proaching a million dollars, the Mc Heurys are able to accord their cus tomers the best of service. The cap ital and surplus of this bank is ample for every requirement. Denison and vicinity are indeed fortunate to have such excellent banking facilities as are furnished by this pioneer bank. James Schlumberger and friend.

Lack of Interest in Tournament Is the Cause of Fire Boys Abandoning Engagement at Harlan. The consolidated tire department held a meeting at the city hall last evening to determine whether or nq, to send a running team to Harlan for the Inter-State tournament to be held June 21 and 22d. It was finally de cided not to attend the tournament as the running team was not thought to be in condition for racing. \v ith the exception of one or two occasions the running cart had never been taken to the track, and the full team had never at one time been in practice. The cap tain explains the reason for this from fact that some members were in college, others in high school, while others were employed in places of iness that did not enable them to prac tice. The commencement in the schools and college kept the boys too busy to permit spending their even ings at the track. At this meeting a committee, consisting of the tire chief, his assistant and the foremen of the iCerent companies, was appointed to make the necessary arrangements for participating in the Fourth of July program. This committee will meet with the general committee on pro gram and consult as to final arrange ments. DEATH OF BELLE ISEMINGER.
