given to Rack, as the rules give the tie
to the man making the highest aggre
gate score on the longest range.
This score was very good for the
team, considering the weather condi
tions, and beat last year’s team by 72
points, falling below the United States
Intercollegiate ecod of last year by
only 12 points.
Other men shooting, but who failed
to place, were Clayton, Allen, Washam,
Clarkson, Zedler, and Faber. Consid

“Why do you think so?” everybody
“Well,” said Uncle William, still
more sagely, “he always has.”—New
