• hampion Huhi, the finest Pekinese
spaniel in America, and likewise aware
of the fact, raised his glossy head
from a pink satin pillow and yawned
a mighty yawn. The gesture, which
seemed to please him, included stick
ing out his tongue to a dreadful length
in the direction of the renter of canine
population composing the toy dog show
in the St. Francis hotel.
"Fearful bore, these shows," he re
marked to Sherwood Shun Shi, who re
posed on a similar pillow in the nevt
cage.
Everlasting bore, I'd say," replied
Shun Shi, amiabFy. but at the same time
keeping both eyes on Miss Lydia Hop
kins, their mistress*. His interest did
not match his word.*, but as a young
i be wanted to keep on good
- with the champion. At the same
he had thoughts of pleasing his
ess by winning a prize.
"It's aH_.an empty honor." Champion
Huhi mumbled lazily. "I've been in
dozens of shows and I've won prizes by
the hundreds, but it's nothing to get
ex< itPd about.
"Just listen to those toy poodles ovef
there yelping and fidgeting around like
■ undman was *t fter 'em They
won't even let me slei-p."
lie yawned again luxuriantly, but no
reply cattle from Shun Shi. As a mat
ter of fact his-mistress was going to
take him before the judges, and lie was
as excited as. the poodles. Champion
Huhi, who was on exhibition only, in a
a-ilt cage flanked with hlue ribbons won
in other shows, drifted off to d*og
dreamland.
DRIFT CHILLS till 111 "\HI A**
The Chihuahuas were making an aw
ful fuss over on their side of the big
colonial ballroom. The cold draft
from an open door had become almost
unbearable, and little two-pound Bonita.
as short of hair as she is of weight, was
• tying her head off. A A. Shade, who
owns Bonita, understood and closed the
door.
"Thank you. tiiank you,"' whimpered
the little Mexican. "Now hold me for a
while," she commanded.
Shade cuddled her -against his coat.
and she went to sleep.
*"! wouldn't want Bonita to catch
r-otd," he said. "She. is far too valuable.-.
I was offered $3J»00 for her at the Kan
•*ns City show, which is at the rate of
about $1,500 a pound."
Incidentally, Bonita is tlie best Chi
huahua in the United States.* with the
proudest lineage and the most points
t >ward championship. m
She was not. however, the smallest
dog in tiie snow. Across the room, in a
miniature sed.-.n chair of white and
gold, an alert little black and tan ter
rier about the size of a chipmunk was
standing on a pink silk cushion wildly
chattering to himself. He was fond of
i»aning out of his crib snd calling '
names at the other dogs and then heist- !
ling with excitement over his bravery. ■
His name is Prince of Pilsen. and his I
mistress, Mrs. 1.. R. Hailing, said lie was j
the tiniest black and tan in America.
He tips ti.e scales at a shade less
than two pounds, but h* is capable of
receiving a great deal of affection.
Mrs. Hailing lifted him up and rubbed
silky head against her cheek.
"1 wouldn't part with Prince for his
weight in diamonds,'' she declared.
"Nobody else must touch him. 1 may
not be jealous of my husband, but 1 tn
iainly jealous of my doggie.''
Prince whined petulantly for some
thing to eat. but it was not time yet
and he didn't get it.
•AWA 8f01.1.K FAVORS IREMH
Another aristocrat of the show was
Anna Belle. Mrs. Charles Sutro's King
■ 'hat ies ' spanfcel exhibited among the
Knglish toy spaniels and winner of all
- in her class. She was ex
hibited in a genuine Louis XV sedan
. which was quite appropriate, as
one knows Louis Quinze was a
•mporary of King Charles.
Anna Belle speaks only French and
in this language addressed a question
to a Japanese spaniel nearby. The an
swer was in jargon.
"What! don't you speak French?"
cried Anna Belle in amazement.
The Japanese dog begged to explain.
Hla French, he said, had been acquired
from his mistress, who still was strug
gling with the declensions. Eventually.
he hoped, he would be able to con
verse with Anna Belle. Anna Belle
politely hoped so too.
9o it went on all day. from 7 o'clock
in the morning, when all the dogs were
alert and loquacious, until 10:30 o'clock
last night, when they were more in
-1 to snuggle up against a warm
coat and be rocked to sleep. Meanwhile
tiie initial show of the Pacific coast
Toy JDog association was going on
about them and hundreds of visitors
were poking them with curious fingers
or gingerly petting them to see
whether they would bite.
More than 100 dogs*, ranging in size
from tiny Prince of Pilsen up to Bos
ton terriers weighing IS pounds, were
■ >n exhibit, and among their number
v.-as every variety of toy dog ever
seen on Powell street or Pacific avenue
on a summer afternoon. They were all
bsrbered and manicured elaborately,
and some even wore tiny jeweled rings
in addition to expensive collars.
l'A>!OlS FWCIF.R I»RESU.VI*
In the center of the ballroom a
square space hounded by palms* was
occupied hy John Bradshaw, one or
the most famous dog fanciers In Amer
ica, who acted as judge. A constant
string of PiimiTaiiiani* and poodles and
spaniels passed before him and with
unerring: eye he sorted and picked
from among them the winners of the
ribbons and tiophies.
Some of the exhibits were elaborately
a ted and won special prizes for
their beauty. Cat toll Cook's arislo-
Pomeraniana occupied apart-,
ments in a miniature St. Francis hotel,
which shown with electric lights like
the brg hostelry does on a carnival
night Miss Hopkins' 13 prize dogs, in
cluding Pekingese spaniels, griffons
and Pomeranians, were arranged in gilt*
cages with a background t of Chinese
hangings.
The trophies included some of the
most beautiful cups ever offered in a
dog show in the west. They were
awarded at the close of the show. The
winners in the several classes, includ
ing the variety classes, were as fol
lows:

Extravagant Prices No Longer
Necessary in Player Pianos
No longer is it necessary to invest $700 to $900 to
buy an artistic and wholly satisfactory player-piano.
Improvements in design, in efficiency and methods
of manufacture, together with quantity construe- -
tion, have made it possible for us to offer at this
time players which in every respect are superior to
those which two or three years since sold at prices
$200 to $300 higher. This evolution is the natural
result of the great demand for good player-pianos
at low prices and the devotion of the best mechan
ical minds of the music industry to manufacturing
and mechanical problems.
Today we offer a player-piano at $485 on easy pay
ments, which will satisfy the most exacting musi
cian, not only in the character of the piano, but as
well in; the perfection of its renditions. It is
beautifully cased, simply controlled arid altogether
desirable.
At $500, $550 and $600 we 'show player-pianos
which we are confident are superior to any offered
at their price in the West. On all convenient terms
may be arranged. Besides, the buyer has the certain
knowledge that both piano and price are right and
that back of every instrument offered by our house
is ari unimpeachable guarantee not only as to qual
ity, but that the price is the same that he would pay
for his piano on the floors of the manufacturer.
Safeguard your own interests by investigating
thoroughly. - >-*?

NEAR POLICEMAN
HAS BAD RECORD
Edward R. McAvoy, Arrested
Several Times, Twice Was ,
Accused of Felonies
Dissatisfied with the statement of
Edward R. McAvoy, applicant for ap
pointment as a policeman, to the ef'
feet that he had been, arrested only
once during his life, the police com
mission some time ago ordered a full
investigation made of the man's char
acter and: life. Detective Sergeant
Thomas 'B.urke yesterday testified be
fore a meeting of the commission |hat
McAvoy had been arrested several
times, twice for disturbing the peace.
once for grand larceny, another time
for malicious mischief and still another
time for burglary. McAvoy is next
on the civil service eligible list for
appointment to the police department.
Policeman Michael Bain of the south
ern station was dismissed from the de
partment, he having been found guilty
of being intoxicated while on duty and
of insubordination.
Policeman Henry J. Charlton was
fined $25 for failing to report for duty.
Policeman John J. May. was repri
manded for being late for duty. His
excellent reputation as a patrolman
prompted the commission to be lenient.
Frederick J. Oster, a patrol wagon
driver, while on duty attended a wake
for about two hours. He was fined
$20. *
Carl Leonhardt, proprietor of the Ca
sino, a roadhouse, was reprimanded for
playing music after 1 a. m. Joseph
Moresl, the chauffeur who charged two
Immigrants f7 for taxi\hire instead of
?2. the legal fare, lost his license.
The proprietors of the New Califor
nia Dance hall, Montgomery street,
will be cited to appear before the com
mission to show cause why their li
cense should not be revoked for per
mitting white women to dance with
Filipinos and others of the Malay race.
