South Australian Homing Pigeon Club.—The first match in connection with the above club was flown on Saturday, July 27, from Mintaro. The birds were sent up by the morning train, and liberated by the stationmaater at 12.30. The weather was not good for fast flying, a strong wind blowing with a cloudy sky. However, the birds did fair time; Mr. Boothby’s Penelope and Aldgate flying seventy-one and three-quarter miles in 105 minutes, and Mr. John Hammer’s Ben flying seventy-two miles in 106 minutes.
