“By breaking eighteen out of twenty birds, as compared with his competitor’s seventeen, Fred Harlow, the young Newark (Ohio) shooter, won the shoot-off for the Handicap from Woolfolk Henderson, of Lexington Kentucky, much to the surprise of the hundreds of marksmen present from all parts of the country. This is the first tournament in which Harlow has participated. Henderson shot from 19 yards and Harlow from 16 yards.”
