HITTING THE MARK. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — Will you, some day, kindly find room for the following queries with respect to rifle practice, viz. : — By what rule should a rifleman vary the sighting of his rifle when he desires to hit an object higher or lower thin himself ? Suppose, for example, that he wishes to hit an enemy on the edge of a perpendicular cliff, whose base is upon a level with himself. Suppose the dis tance between himself and that part of the base of the cliff directly beneath the enemy to be 109 yards, and the distance of the enemy in a direct line 400 yards, what ' sight' should he use ? and would the same ' sighting1' do if he and his enemy were to exchange places ? Would the 100 yards sight do for the 400 yards distance ? I am, Sir, &c., D. W. S. [In firing upwards the rifleman should not use much more than the 400 yards elevation ; in firing frcn the cliff the »fle should be sighted as if on the level. — Ed.]
