Trap Shooting (Matches - October 1903)
Shooting excitement - Last Sunday J. Dudley, the creamery man, and Lew Leighty, had a trap shoot with ten up and some of the coin was up on the side. J. Dudley shot well that day, and won. After the shooting, the victor got a rig and with Charley Harlow drove around town with a string of sleigh bells jingling to celebrate, while the losers tried to forget it and think of something else.
Monday morning a match was shot off between Walter Dangers and Stub Masters, Walter taking the money, and Monday afternoon a series of shoots began, one each day in the week - seven in all - Dudley to do all the shooting, Wm. Stowell betting him $10 on each shoot that he can’t hit 16 or over out of 25.
