A Commentary on the Final Stage from the Ham and Petersham Rifle
The final stage of this competition is held in September each year at the Ham and Petersham Rifle Range, near Twickenham, the preliminary rounds having been shot off during May, June, and July. The five teams surviving to the finals this year are Westminster, Wandsworth, Richmond, Hammersmith, and Kensington. The Cup was won last year by Richmond.
Each team of eight shoots against the four others, the winning team of each heat scoring one point. The range is 100 yards, each team shooting at twenty-four 2-inch breakable discs fastened to a black board ; the team to break all the discs first is the winner. It is not stipulated that any one man must fire at any particular disc ; it is simply a matter of a team breaking the maximum number of discs in the minimum time.
There is a time-limit of three minutes per heat, but actually a heat seldom lasts more than ten' or twelve seconds over one minute. One heat was shot off last year in forty seconds.

' Swift and Partridge '
Dean Swift 's practical joke on John Partridge , the astrologer and almanac-maker, in 1708, is one of the supreme masterpieces in the history of the art of hoaxing. Under the name of Isaac Bickerstaff , Swift published an almanac of his own predicting Partridge's death on a certain day, and when the date had passed issued a pamphlet announcing the fulfilment of his prophecy. The report was widely believed and the unfortunate Partridge had considerable difficulty in persuading people that he was still alive.
