dent's clerk. The candidates were marched to
the police barracks, and at the outset 16 were re-
jected for being short of the minimum height,
11 for being under age, and two for being mar-
ried. four failed to pass the riding test, and
23 were retired on the grounds of physique. The
remaining 37 were marched to the rifle ranges in
the afternoon. Seven failed to hit the target at
400 yards, and were retired. The remaining 30
were ordered to report themselves at the Vic-
torian Barracks on Wednesday next. Mr. Phillips
was very favourably impressed with the stamp of
men selected.

THE RIDING TESTS.
Better weather was experienced yester-

day, and the riding tests on the Domain
were more satisfactory than during the
previous days of the week. Most of the
men rode well, 68 out of 77 satisfying Colo-
nel Bingham as to their fitness for mili-
tary work in South Africa. The horses
jumped splendidly, with very few excep-
tions. One of these exceptions was a lively
when forced to do so by an intrepid candi-
date, approached its hurdles with much re-
luctance, preferring to pig-jump a long way
back, rather than face the timber in a
businesslike way. The candidate referred
to was Lieutenant Purcell, of the Yea
Mounted Rifles, who was not informed
when he led the animal out for its canter
round that it had already dislodged two
riders earlier in the day. It commenced a
similar performance with the fresh rider,

and succeeded in unseating him right in
front of the spectators. Purcell, however,
landed well, and catching the horse without
loss of time mounted him and rushed him

at the fences, which were taken "like a
bird." This performance elicited well-de-
served applause. The whole of the metro-
politan district candidates have been
through their tests, and no more riding will
be done on the Domain until the first batch
comes down from the country in a few
days.
