I don't want to bet, let's take the cannonballs, too. And her hat.

Could those balls be glass target balls?

Looks like it.  They were often made with ridges of some kind on the surface so the shot wouldn't glance off.

First, that is indeed a target ball, made by the N(orth) B(ritish) Glass Works in Perth.

Second, a few posts back. a photo relevant to a 1907 schuetzen match shows the visiting team from the D. A. Schutzen-Bund.  By a neat coincidence, the recent "Another Photo" post in General Discussion shows a well-decorated member of that same DASB organization.  And while the 1907 photo doesn't tell us what the "D" and "A" stand for, its caption does verify the speculation that the DASB was organized along military lines.

Ballards may be weaker,

A number of fraternal organizations had shooting teams, and also had military ranks within their organizations. My father was a member of the Moose Lodge Shooting Team, and held the rank of Captain in the 1920's.
He was also on their drill team. I still have his Moose Lodge saber here.

I blatantly stole these two images off the internet, and I feel kinda guilty....mea culpa. You'll note that in both the Peabody and the Ballard "Frogmoore" cartoons, the frog is using a Martini rifle.

Appears very similar to the Ballard frogmoor. I don’t know which one came first.

The Photo of the Hudson Walker is also in Donaldson's book. There is also a photo of him holding the rifle in offhand position and he is using the palm rest in that photo. He may have acquired it form Roland.

I was excited to share with you a photo I was recently able to obtain, which has members from the Davenport Rifle Team which included, Emil Berg, Edward Berger, George Cook, Henry Schroeder and John Bredow.  I have no idea as to the number of the photos that were originally produced, however on the back of the photo includes the statement "In memory of Meta Neebe, Wife of Oscar Neebe, Died March 7th 1887, at Chicago Ills." (both in german and English.)  The davenport shooting association has wonderful information of course regarding much of the history and formation of the groups in the area.  Btw, googling Oscar Neebe (Nee-bee) was certainly of interest.   Shocked

Hello
Glad someone finally bought that one, I had been watching it for a month or two and was tempted.
  

Thanks, Don

Yes, those are target balls.  They were very popular with the Wild West Shows since they could be lofted by hand for the performers to shoot.  They were used for that purpose for many years after the shotgun crowd had gone over to clay targets.  (I have about 60 glass target balls in my collection ...)

I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't quite reached my "Expiry" date yet ...
