TOOLERN VALE. (From Our Own Correspondent-) Tuesday. The monthly shoot of the Toolern Vale Gun Club was held on Saturday last, and the twelve shooters who competed in the various events had a very enjoyable afternoon's sport. The birds were a fine lot, and tested to the full the skill of the   marksmen. R. Alkemaide, with 18 in succession, had the best run, while G. Jongebloed shot in fine form, killing 28 out of 32. For the Holloway trophy     (to be won three times) T. Condon lasted longest, killing 7 out of 8, with P. Murnane and G. Jongebloed 6 each. For the "Hydraulic" trophy, a battle royal took placc bet ween R. Alkemaide and G. Jongebloed, ending in favour of the former on the 17th round, with only 2 second barrel kills to the latter's 7.

BRAYBROOK COUNCIL. The resignation of Inspector Pater son was accepted with regret by Bray brook council on Monday. On the ques tion of filling the position, Cr. McKay (president) suggested that the collec tion of sanitary and dog fees, formerly performed by the inspector, be added   to the duties of the rate collector, and the latter's salary increased from £100 per annum to either £160 per annum or £140 per annum with commission on dog fees. It was decided that Mr. W. Minns be appointed to collect sani tary and dog fees, in addition to ordin ary rates, at a salary of £160 per annum. During the discussion it was stated that the rate collector had been appointed shire secretary at Melton, and that he intended to carry on his new position in addition to his present duties.
