Horses' nnd hounds nro vlelnir with
each other today nt the 20th amiunl Ilrytt
Slnwr Horse Show on the polo grounds.
Tho ndvent of canines Into what has been
for years an exclusively equine event,
marks a new tlcpntturo nt Pryn Mnwr
nnd Is being regarded with considerable
Interest by exhibitors. While It Is per
fectly natural for the hnrso nnd hound
to go together, particularly In the huntv
lug class, the effect of this feature nt n
horse show will bo closely watched. If
populaily lecelvcd, naturally It will bo I
The Is the first time any show espe
cially for box and beagle hounds has
ever been attempted In this country. The I
Hound .-how Committee Included mnsters
of nil the leading hunting packs ln tUc !
united States nnd Canada. The ex
hibition Will compare favorably with
slmllnr contests held annually at Peter
boro. Kntr.
Considerable regret Is felt because
Canadian hunt clubs aro not to exhibit
at the Bryn JIawr show. Tholr non
appearance Is due entirely to the wnr
nnd tho Hrltlth embaigo on the exporta
tion of livestock. The dogs particularly
affected by this embargo were .small grey
hounds under training In England and
which were to bo used In a scries of
whippet races at tho show.
For the horses for the hnrso mini nnm.

honor, as has been the time-honored cus
tomtoday's events hold out many Interesting-
fentures, which should evoke
rounds of enthusiastic applause from
gaily dressed spectators In the stand,
paddock nnd about the rail.
A horso which was watched with moie
than UBiinl interest In the llrst clnsa
judged wns Bulla, Emlcn Wood's hunter.
It was thlfl mount which yesterday figured
In tho first xplll of tho show, when a
gioom tumbled from the saddle as Bella
bnlkfd before a fence. She had already
taken two jumps nicely, and her action
nt tho third was unexpected.
Society Wfts again out In force at today's
Judging. The same sun smiled warmly
down on tho spectators, nnd the only
cool places about the oval were tent-cov
ered stands. If nnythlng the crowd which
attended the morning session of the show
was larger In comparison to yesterday's
earlv comers.
Tho hunters and Jumpers' class always
brings out a lot of enthusiasts who prefer
the type of animals which for years have
made Bryn Mnwr shows fnmmiR through
out thp land. Watchmald. who took a
blue yesterday, was entered ln the flrnt
class of Jumpers today with Edward B.
McLean's Sir Braxton, which also cap
tured n ribbon. New Yorkers are vastly
Interested In Hohert L. Gerry's Flntrun,
entered In the same class.
The first class of hunters and Jumpers
wns confined to light weight green
hunters nnd naturnlly tho actions of
these equine debutantes was watched
with more than usual Interest.
In the second class hunters and Jump
ers, the pick of Glen Kiddle Farm
stnhles, Vnlley Hill F.irms nnd other
local hreedlng places were entered. A
Hairy IIIgsInson"H rtagtime, which made
a hit jostordny with the crowd, was also
an entrant. This Is u N'ew England
hmse. Mrs. Paul D. Mills had St. Estpch
In this class. Another well behaved ani
mal was Howard II. Henry's Goldle II.
Just before lunch the children with
tholi ponies appealed In various classes.
The advent upon the green of little folks
who uro always In high favor with spec
tators, occasioned a round of applause.
The ponies were Judged In harness, under
saddle and Jumping nnd In hand.
Among the ponies entered were
Dainty, Angus nnd Aberdeen under sad
dle, from Broadlawn Farms; Ynlter S.
Hnlllwell's Effle B. and colt shown in
hnnd; Edgar Y. Powell's Oxford Jewel,
and Sequel and Sequence from Broad
lawn Farms. Theso last two were shown
yesterday driven by Gladys H. Eurlo,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George H.
Enrle, Jr.
The hunters and Jumpers shown In
pairs this afternoon will undoubtedly
bring out many enthusiasts. This la al
ways a great feature at horso shown.
Tho ladles' hunters' class to be stfown
late today Is also of considerable In
terest. Among tho animals In the lat
ter class which will he put over Jumps
not exceeding four feet are Willow King
nnd St. Winifred, from Glen Blddln
Farms; F. Ambrose Clark's Sally Com
beo, shown yesterday; Miss Lomoro,
from Broadlawn Farms; three horses
of Robert L. Gerry from New York, and
E. H- McLean's High Ball.
Well-known steeds handled by well
known society folk are to be entered In
the saddle horse and horses in harness
classes. The chargers will be judged
as a concluding feature to today's
Mrs. William J. Clothier, In a dainty
little (lowered frock of pink and whlto
and broad-brimmed white hat, watched
the Judging from the grandstand, when
she was joined by Christian A Hayes.
Mrs. Howard Henry, In a pongee blouse
and linen skirt, motored over during the
morning, and Mrs. R. Penn Smith, In a,
cool white frock, joined her daughter.
Miss Alexander Brown, ou the grand
stand. At U o'clock many left the boxes and
grandstand for the green of the club
house, to witness the opening of the
hound show, while many, fearing to cope
with the Intense heat of tho sun. dis
carded een their boxes for shady and
pintected corners. Children again, en
joying their last outing before school
days, formed a percentage of the spec
tators. Few of the debutantes put In an appear

PARIS, Sept. 22.
Widespread rejoicing was caused In
Paris todny by reports indicating that
the famous cathedral at Rhelms had
escaped Irreparable destruction under
tho German bombardment of the town
and can be restored, though seriously
The magnificent windows are all
smashed, nccording to officers who ar
rived from tho front, and ruin has been
spread in tho Interior by bursting shells,
but the walls stand unbroken, though
scarred In many places.
Among the superstitious hope of ulti
mate French victory In the war Is In
ci cased by tho fact that the statue of
Jean of Arc, which stands before the
facade, escaped serious damage.
LONDON, Sept. 22.
That there Is an Intention on the part
of the German military experts to en
deavor to raze the entire city of Rhelms
Is believed here. It la claimed the Gen
eral Staff now realises the great strategic
mistake made when the Germans with
drew from that city, nnd 'that they nre
willing to go to any Ungth to retake It.
In describing the condition"! In Rhelms,
tho Dally Telegraph corespondent says
thnt thero Is hardly a house In the neigh
borhood of tho cathedral that escaped
damage. Continuing, he says:
The masonry of the cathedral Is
chipped nnd many of the carved fig
urea nnd gargoyles have been broken
off. In the doorway still stands the
crippled beggar crippled In 1ST0 who
has remained at his post through a
rain of flying spllnt-is and dust,
pebbles and glass. Fifty shells found
lodgment In the Interior, but tho stone
work withstood tho concussion of their
The building cin probably bo restored,
nccording to this correspondent, as the
shell fire seems no longer to be dlrocted
toward It, but, of course. Its priceless
decorations arc ruined for nil time.

the Cathedral of Rhelms. Pope Benedict
XV said he "could not believe it possible
