RICHMOND.

Lovely weather characterised the second day's sport of the grouse shooting season of 1900. Indeed, it was one of the hottest days experienced for many years. Capital sport was again enjoyed, and Mr Buxton and party had most excellent sport upon the Grinton Moor, belonging to Colonel Charlesworth. Comparatively few sportsmen patronised the moors, though it was a regular day—only too hot. Still a nice breeze prevailed. Mr W. G. Deacon of London, is shooting from Draycott Hall, and the party of six guns bagged 539 head of grouse on the opening day. Mr Gaudy of Penrith, killed over 500 head on Gunnerside Moor. Sir Geo. Pilkington bagged 212 head on Ribblehead. Messrs Harmsworth have prospect of capital sport on Scotton Estate, near Richmond. Mr Stanniforth, Sir Ed. Green, and party killed nearly 500 grouse on the Arkendale Moor. Other Yorkshiremen have fared as well.
