One of Saturday's most significant results was the defeat of Reading at home by Millwall. Follow-ing their victory over Southampton, thim remult suggests that Millwall have got together a team which will take a prominent place in the Southern League thim memaon. Reading, however, do net appear to be particularly mtrong, for they ware beaten by Brentford.
Swindon hardly appear so strong as last year Fleming, perhaps, being mimmed, and they encoun-tered a decidedly better side than themselves in the Argyle at Home Park, Plymouth.

After being two goals down at the interval, the Saints very nearly lost at home to Bristol Rovers for the thud game in muceesmkm, but they Anally drew the match through a splendid second half
The homo team did nearly all the pressing in the Armt half, and yet were two goalm down. The Bristol forwards did not often get going, but whenever they did they required a lot of stopping.
However, Kimpton succeeded in scoring early in the second half, while Andrews equalised with a brilliant long range drive ten minutes from the
The forward line, however, failed to reproduce the form they showed at Northampton. Taylor warn the bemt of the quintette, and Andrews mhaoed well at outside left. The backs were fairly good, but the defence, on the whole, was by no means convincing against a fast attack.
The Saints' Reserves beat Bournemouth by 4 goals to 1, and Woolston made no mistake in their first County League match at Cowem.
Cowes are no weaker than last year, but iho great improvement" in the Woolston ranks proved too much for them.
September, after a bad opening, has made amends to a certain extent, and anglers last week had the most favourable time for fishing they Java eqwrieneed thim season.

There is a variety of opinion as to the merits of the various baits umdd for grey mullet, which are just now at their best.
On the authority of Mr. John Bickerdyke, common flour paste is not a good bait, ordinary soaked bread being far better.
Very small portions should be used, not much larger than a pea. unless the fish run large.
Boiled and unboiled shrimps and prawns, peeled, are useful baits when the angler has enough small shrimps to use broken up for, ground bait.
Pounded crab is good as a general ground "ait, while pilchard guts are usually effective. This refers, of course, to Ashing oS tne boWoXh.
For mid-water fishing lighter tackle is required, and a float used.

At Heme Hill, on Saturday, there was a splendid meeting of cycling champions under the auspices of the N.C.U.
The victory of H. E. Ryan, of the Polytechnic C.C., over V. L. Johnson, hovers' C.C., inthe pre-liminary heat of the half-mile invitation scratch came am a great surprise.
Ryan, however, could only obtain third pla.v in the final, am W. J. Bailey, the world's cycling champion, won 4>y nearly three lengtns from H. T. Johnson in 67 2-5 sees.
Vic. Johnson did better in the five miles invito Lion scratch race, which he won by half a length from Liddle in 11 min. 28 2-5 sees.

Now that the weather is somewhat finer the boat racing in Southampton Water is drawing to ft close. Saturday saw the last of the matches on the sailing programme of the Minima Yacht Club (Solent Division), and out of three events on the card only one produced a contest, and it was for the 18 feet open centre-board class. The elementa were far from favourable, for although it warn fine yet there was very little wind, what breeso there was just after the start falling off to a calm. Consequently the race officer (Mr. B. J. Barter) had no alternative but to stop the race when half the course had been completed. The boats had a long^siruggle against a five knot tide, and it was not until the ebb had done and the first of the flood came that they were able to get to the goal. Dr. Fenton's Sirius was the winner, independent of her time allowance (two minutes), she finishing in front of Sally, Dr. Laud__________. .......\____ „t .v.. ______i:_r

It is announced on good authority that Mr. G. Cecil Whitaker, owner of the schooner Water* witch, has commissioned Mr. O. E. Nicholson to design him a schooner for next season's racing. There it no doubt Waterwitch is a failure am ft racer, and let us hope that the new vessel by ft southern designer, and which will be built by his firm at Gosport, may prove as good a boat as the 15 metre yacht Istria has done this season.
The Burnhatn race week concluded on Saturday, snd out of the seven days' racing Captain B. T. Dixon's Jonquil heads the list, as she won four first prises in the seven matches sailed, and the other Hytho built boat, Chaero, Mr. Sefton Purdey, captured one. The Whim, which formerly belonged to Mr. O. Rivett-Carnae,' of Hytbe, "also won one, as did Oypaetos. Thus Mr. Morgan Giles has every reason to be pleased with the performances of Jonquil and Chaero. both of which he designed, during the psst season.

There was not a dull moment. Every opportunity was given the competitors for continuous shooting. It was a capital illustration of the advantage of being able to keep four ranges in use simultaneously.
The "extra" 25 yards range was the venue of the " unlimited," which was open to all members of clubs in the district, ami many of those who took part in the team shoot availed themselves of a sporting chance in this cash prixe event.

The arrival of the American papers with remarkably graphic accounts of the events connected with the championship, does not add greatly to our knowledge of that notable meeting, though a few characteristic touches are provided.
