FINISHED AND ARTISTIC WORKMANSHIP. A new target, 6x4 feet, has been placed at Kakaako butts for the Sharp shooters and the Military, this in the shape of the upper half of' a man in position on the ground, the whole fig ure taking two feet. The target as used by the United States Army has the figure of the man at the bottom but on account of the difference in faci lities here, Sergeant Elvin, who has charge of the butts, was forced to place the figure in the middle of the target, which, being six feet high, allows two feet above and two below. On the tar get as used by the United States Army, any shot striking the figure, counts 5. the spaces of either side, 4, the two- foot snace in the middle, 3 and the last at the top, 2 points. The change made by Mr. Elvin gives the fiugre, o; the snaces to either side, 4; the two-foot snace below. 3 and the two-foot space above 2 noints. The target with the fieure at the lower part was found imnracticable on account of the fact that the frame surrounding it was shot to pieces as well as the sliding appar tus. The Sharpshooters and Military men are very much pleased with the new target. Of course there is much more chance for scoring 5's but then, to have anvthine resembling a figure to shoot at, lends an additional incentive, ine Sharpshooters have already made sev eral 50's for the target has been up since Saturday. Lieutenant Ross oi: Company G succeeded in making 49. Here is a part of what a recent num ber of Harper's Weekly has to say about the new target: "in the SDring of the present year, as the result of the recommendations of the Army Small-Arms Board, a ra dical change was made by the adopt ion of the silhouette target. The the ory of this target is that the soldier should be trained to shoot at a mark such as the enemy would present. The bull's eye, or, as it is now called, the "figure," in the 200-yard target, is therefore the silhouette in black, on a white ground, of a soldier lying down, "head on." In the 500-yard target, the figure is kneeling; in the 800-yard target, the figure is standing; and the 100-yard figure is that of a soldier on horseback. The tendency of all troops being to shoot high, an endeavor is made in the new target to overcome this tendency by placing the figure at the bottom instead of in the centre. "The divisions regulating the value of shots are entirely different, and the area of the figure is much greater than in the old bull's-eye. "The effect on the scores of this greater area in the central objective is mnst armarent at 200 yards. At this range the figure is compact and com paratively regular in shape, ana tne element of chance enters less than in the other targets, in which it is evi rlnt that a shot either close to the arm-pit in the 500-yard or high up be tween the legs in the SOO-yaru, is clos er to the centre and unquestionably better than one which cnance might Indze in the elbow, or in the foot of the figure, but which counts for more. It is at 200 yards, therefore, that ac curate holding is surest of counting." Aytoinlat LIMITED- Nets Are once again rushing in to favor with the ladies of the fash ionable world.
