Dr. A.C. SMITH and John GLASSBURN went out for a little targe shooting the other day. John says the doctor is a good shot, and that he, himself, had seen the day that he was, and even now he is quite a hand at shooting. A rifle finds his shoulder just as natural and the ball strikes the mark as accurately now as ever, and the story goes that he beat the doctor though he is too bashful to say so himself.
