Father Hyacithe’s bowling saloon is a very neat and cleverly conducted institution. We dropped in there yesterday. Never an neater bar, never a more cleanly kept place; never a more cheery landlord. Among other attractions is a rife and a target. The rifle shoots bird shot; the charge is a trifle of dynamite contained in a percussion cap.
