Miss Carrie Baillie.
Though hitherto unknown (o Southampton playgoers. Mr. Marsh has built up a big reputation as a scholarly interpreter of the principal Shake-sperean roles, ana his perforiuanco of "Othello" on Monday night was superb.
Miss Carrie BailTio we remember seeing -with the late Mr. Osmond Tearle's Co., and her " Desde-mona" could scarcely be Improved upon. Mr. Marsh's colleagues are all carefully selected, and include Mr. J. W. Mollison, son of the late Mr. William Mollison. Mr. Wilson Gunning, who has served with Mr. Beerbohm Tree and Mr. W. Edward Stirling, who recently concluded an en-gagoment with the London Repertory Co.

The above pictures were taken at Paulton'm Park (the residence of Capt. Slo&ne Stanley), whither members of the Junior Guild of the Southampton Cooperative Society went for their annual outing last week. One has only to glance at the photo to sec that they enjoyed themselves hugely.

Messrs. Grapes and Sparshott cannot be accused of letting their aide down, as both topp+d the cen-turv, and, with Ihe addition of 15 points claimed as handicap, the team were perhaps surprised that they did not win. as all of the victors shot off the scratch mark. The scores were: Bitterne, 788, off the gun: Weston, 768 (plus 15), 783. —
The return match between teams of Southampton and Bishop's Wallham clubs was fired at Hichfield, and the Southampton team followed up their success at Waltham by again defeating the Nortbbrook men. thia time by fifteen point*. The totals were: Southampton 780 pjus 3, and Bishop's Wallham 747 plu* 21. ... ^
The visitors were a team that showed much development, and with a little more experience an I perseverance with the orthoptic sight they should be one of Ihe l»est sides in Southern Hampshire. At their initial practice with the "Peep," much difficulty was experienced in recording a moderate score. This led all the team, bar one member, to at once discard the improved method. What an unfortunate policy tn assume 1
Tis true three points ar* s hied to a score which has been made with open sigbta, hut in the end what is gained? The teams that are in favour of the "Peep," and use It on all occasions, are at th-i head of the table. The handicap will soon be an allowance of the past, and all must *hoot off the scratch mark.

A way out of tho difficulty is suggested, and that is that a medal he given lo the champion shot of tho League for tho highest average on scores made off the gun, each member to shoot in 75 per cent, of tho matches of his club'* programme: and a medal be given to the member who has tho~bea| average score at the comei'sfon of his club)* programme, tho minimum of matches he has fired in must be 75 per cent."
The Woolston and District Company of the , National Reserves h*d a very pleasant afternoon on the Weston Club* ranges on Saturday, when a match was fired between 1, 2, and 3 sections of the Company.
No. 2 section (Thomycroft) were declared tho winners with a score of 508. No. 1 section (Netley) were second with 493, and No. 3 (Woolston) were third, their score being 481.
After the match tho teams adjourned to the Obelisk Hotel, and did justice to *n excellent tea. Company Sergt.-Major Burr referred to the keen rivalry existing between the meet Ion*, and that it would always continue. Ho lookec ward to the time when the Company would havo a range and club premimea of their own.
Mr. Thomas (Netley aection) also spoke In a like spirit, and an enthusiastic gathering dispersed with the singing of the "King."
