"WARRENTON, VA., August 28.-The
fifth annual exhibit ot tho Warrenton
Horso Show Association oponed here to?
day with an unusually large attendance
and a total of 400 entries. Mr. Charlos
W, Smith, manager of tile show, bad pro?
vided extra accommodations for the
crowd ln the shapo of extensive additions
to the grand stand, wtilch was packed
throughout the day. Tljo Immense throng
wag a good natured one and scarcely an
unpleasant incident occurred during the
performances. The event's were presented
ln their respective order as scheduled, and
passed off with a smoothness and regu?
larity indicativo of rood management and
long experience. It would scarcely seem
amiss to say that all society was present?
a wealthy and fashionable representation
from the larger cities of the Atlantic
slope added to tbe brilliancy of the occa?
sion. Muste, bright color and laughter
were everywhere. At times, whon some
exceptional feat of horsemanship was
accomplished, the air would resound with
hursts ' of applause and the spectators
become. Intoxlcatedywttli delight- at the
heroutoan efforts or'horse and rider to
"go over without a tip."
Outside the ring the scene was one of
greatest Interest, With horses at full
gallop, great four-in-hands would rumble
into line preparatory to their coming
contests, and long blasts from coaching
horns would reverberate through the sur?
rounding hills. Sleek, sinewy thorough?
breds stood here and everywhere, some ln
victory and some in defeat, betraying no
visible emotion other than a quivering
limb or a red nostril. True aristocrats
of the turf wero these, as blue blooded
as any peer of fhe realm, Elther In mo?
nierte of supreme triumph or humiliating
downfall, they still preserved the proud,
unbending air of royalty.
And It was a sympathetic audience
which paid thorn homage, when ln mo-,
ments of broathlesa Interest these equine
beauties would make the trial of tholr
lives for their masters and for the bluo
ribbon. All tho animals exhibited seemed
to be of excellent types, splendid crea?
tures, tip-top ln breeding, lltho ln move?
ment and perfect In conformation. They
came from far and near, most all of
them from, the homes of fine horses. The
sporting and park tandem features wero
full of dash. As the gates swung open
and the spirited high-steppers thundered
post the grand stand the spectators -would
rise en masse In uncontrollable enthu?
siasm and clamor for their favorites.
The show ring was absolutely dustless,
tho splendid thick turf prevontingrall tho
discomforts Incident to a dirt ring. The
special awards mado In plate sllvor and
riding paraphernalia woro exceptionally
fine and hotly contested for. Most of tho
jumps averaged four and a half and five
feet. Thoy were of considerable stiffness.
Especially noticeable arid deserving of
praise was the superb horsemanship of
tho ladles who rode. They would launch
their mounts at these formidable hur?
dles and sail over them with an ease
and bravado which turned the stand Into
a bedlam of npplnu.se each time. Tho
music was oxce-ittomilly good, being fur
