Aisne River Losses Colossal,
Says Correspondent Who
Followed Armies From the
LONDON, Sept. 21.
German troops are dying to the muilc of
their regimental bands In the vnlley of
death along the Alsne by day and by
night. Their losses nro colossal, says an
English correspondent, who sends his
elory from La Ferte-Mllon, south of
Solssons. He says:
'From the battlefield of Marne t worked
my way northward through Chantllly and
Fenlls to Crepy-en-Valols to this volley
of death. I came by night through lands
wasted by the feet of tens of thousands
of armed men and by Innumerable wheels
of tho world's greatest armies.
"I have seen on thlfl rond sights that
convince me that the retreat was not only
swift, but precipitate to a point of actual
panic. It was Alsne or destruction. It Is
necessary to realize that Just as the allied
army, on Its way from Mons to Paris,
was In danger of th German flanking
movement which threatened to overwhelm
It, so wm Genet at von Ktuk's right
flank In Its retreat from Paris to Alsne
In extreme danger. To avoid annihilation,
he lied a position of tremendous wtii-ngth
toward the west. It was absolutely
essential to his safety to gain the position
"One nuidt not loso sight of the supreme
fart that -if the present sltuitlon Just
as the Jitn'tinn of the Ourcq and Marne
at Meaiix made that town the key of
encounter last week, so the Junction of
the (Use and the Aline at Complegne has
endowed tne lattei with cardinal Import
ance. Once across the Alsne, the German
nrmv had the Itlver Olsc on Its right, and,
for the moment, the danger of being out
flanked was averted.
"This vw the position on Sunday, Sep
tember 13 the frst day of the great
"The valley of the river became an In
ferno From height to height the great
guns belched forth their lire In terrific
fashion. Huge shells went shrieking
across tho river and the river meadows.
The nrmy poured a. withering tire upon t
the allied troops and engineers that were
engaged In building pontoon bridges. The
pontoons are mined on wagons espu
tlally constructed for their transportation.
It Is necessary to bring these pontoom
to the water's edge, launch them and then
lash them together.

Contrary to custom, the show today
opened on time. When the first clear

this yoar. Both In number and quality
of the animals shown today all the
horse show enthusiasts realized that this
year's exhibition would by far eclipse
any previous event at Bryn Mawr.
Quite a departuro has been mado by
horse show ofllclals this season over the
custom of former years, In that the af
fair will last six days Instead of five,
In addition to that, the first hound show
ever held In America will begin tomor
row and continue In connection with the
larger event until tho end of the week.
Draft horses are also to be exhibited
this year. This has nover bean dono be
fore at Bryn Mawr.
HORSE COMES FIRST
Naturally, the horse will occupy the
post of first Importance For the last
twenty years he has ushered In what Is
practically tho Initial social event of
the fall season. It Is for this reason
that socbty folk from New York, Balti
more, Washington, Boston nnd other
places Journey to tho Quaker City and
join with her sons and daughters In pro
claiming her supremacy on the tan bark.
Many familiar faces wore seen In tho
oval toelny. Smltlnglv urbane, and criti
cally Judicious ns ever, "Reggie" Vnnder
hilt, without whom no horse show Is a
success, appeared In his uslliu place among
the Judges. There Is probably no better
Judge of horseflesh In tho country than
Mr. Vanderbllt, and once ho has passed
upon the met Its of any exhibit, tho last
word has been said,
George B. Hulme and E. F. Gerry, of
New York, are other Now Yorkers to be
seen among the Judges.
There wero 345 entries In tho 63 classes
when the first animal stepped on the
tan tmrk this morning. The abandon
ment of the horse show nt Madison
Squnro Garden. New York, this year be
cause of the European war, brought an
unusually lnrge number of out-of-town
entries to Bryn Mawr. For the same rea
son the social importance from the stand
point of persons present and stable rivalry
was considerably greater.
Tho hunting nnd Jumping classes that
have placed Bryn Mawr horse how In
the forefront of American exhibits of a
similar character opened th competition
today. The first class open to green
hunters only wns put over fences nt 10
o'clock. Among these animals were the
pick of the best stables entering hortes
nt this year's show. The roadsters came
on at noon.
Twcnt-llve new classes have been
added to tho show, and for the first
time during the 20 years In which the
exhibition has been held it will con
tinue for six dnys.
HUNTER CLASS FIRST.
Hunters and Jumpers again predominate.
The Bryn Mawr show has become recog
nized as the most Important in this
country for hunting clashes, due prob
ably to the fact that the exhibition Is
held Just before the tor. hunting season
opens, when the horses are In their best
condition. This year 36 of the 99 classes
are for hunters and Jumpers nnd 654 en
tries out of the total of 915 are In these
The showing of harness horses, saddle
horses, hackneyB nnd ponies, although
regarded by patrons of the exhibit as of
secondary Importance, Is expected to de
velop keen contests, as the number of
ontrles in these classes Is also larger
than In previous exhibitions.
For the first time heavy draft horses
will be exhibited at Bryn Mawr this
year. The land owners in the Philadel
phia suburbs have beon making efforts
of late to Improve tho breeds of this
useful type, and In recognition of their
efforts special classes were ndded.
An especially Interesting feature of the
week will be the first annual Bryn Mawr
Hound Show, which begins tomorrow und
wltt continue through tho week Tin
hound show will be a side event and
will be the first exhibition especially for
foxhounds and beagles ever held In this
country. Packs have been entered by
hunt clubs from Massachusetts, Ver
mont, New York. Virginia and Maryland.
Owing to the British embargo against
the export of live stock, however, the
Bmall greyhounds which have been under
training In England and which were to
have competed In a series of whippet
races nt the Bryn Mawr ihow, could not
be brought over.
Whippet racing, which Is somewhat
similar to the sport of rabbit coursing in
tho Western Btntos, has been ft popular
sport in England for many generations.
Tho group of whippets which were to
have been raced at Bryn Mnwr this week
are owned by several members of the
Philadelphia hunting set, including Ed
ward B, Chase, A. J. A. Deveraux, Victor
C. Mather, John II, Converse, W. Plunket
Stewart, John R. Valentine, J. Stanley
Reeve and W. A. Rolln.
WAR KEEPS SOME AWAY,
The show for fox hounds nnd beaglo
hounds will compnro favorably with the
show held each year nt Peterboro, Eng
land. The hound show committee in
cludes the masters of nil tho lending
hunting packs of the United States and
Canada. Packs that were expected from
Canada, however, have been scratched,
because of the war,
An unexpectedly large number of en
tries have been received for the hound
show. There are 289 entries in tho 60
classes, including 10S American hounds,
44 English hounds, 19 Amerlran-bred Eng
lish hounds, 29 half-bred hounds and 81
An amusing feature of the week will
be n special class In the hound show
for "working fox terriers," The digging
ability of the hounds will be tested in
this contest Seven "diggers" from as
many packs have been entered in this
