BItYN MAWR, Sept. 21. Two thrills maikcd the opening of tho fourth day nt tho Bryn Mawr Horso Show, Lurman Stewart ngaln being the principal actor In the llttlo drama, which for a moment looked to be a tragedy. Sir. Stewart was riding Sloe Gin,, In class 65. a port and roll Jumping class with unusually In'cicstlng entries. Sloo Clin became "Slow Gin" Just at an Inoppor tune moment, and tho decided halt In his gait threw Mr. Stewart completely oer his head. The rider remounted al most Immediately, and neither horse nor rider was the worse for wear. The second spill and '.ncldental thrill followed nlmost lmmcdlrtely In the same claws when n groom rld'vig Transport for "Willis Sharpe Kilmer look a header of er.v much the same description. Trans port's manners, however, wero riot con sidered au fait, and he was transported from the ring. Brilliant weather, which hns character ized each day since tho oponlng of tho show, continues. A heavy blanket of dew was everywhere apparent In tho early hours, but tho sun coming from behind a mist later In tho morning quickly dried the-damp grass and soggy canvas cover ing the bands. Later the band appeared nnd soon every person .was happy. Regardless of Mr. Stewart's acrobatic attempts to win a blue, the llrst prize went to Howard II, Henry, on Colonel Ouannen, a new horso. Tho second was taken by Templar, an entry of Louis C. Clark, Jr. Et Winifred, from Glen Riddle Farms, took third. In tho second class of hunters and Jump ers Judged, a featureless competition aside from remnrkablo riding, the bluo was taken by Wlllowklng, a former prize winner, from Glen Riddle Farms, Pnl'y Oombeo, entered by P. Ambrose Clark, and another blue ribbon horso, took feinm1 In the contfst. Third nnd fourth h"iinrti went to Fullitn. of Highland Farm, nnd Wild Irishman, last yenr's winners of the Radnor Challenge Cup, and entered from William T. Clothier's Valleyhlll Farm. Mr. Stewart figured In a third spill hardly before ho had brushed tho tan baik from his clothing following tho other two. He was riding Benjamin, New York rntiv of Robert L. Gerry, when the horse refused In front of hedge near the Judgo's stand. The rider wont head over heels to the ground. Stewart lashed tavagely nt the horse's ne'k with his crop nfter remounting, but could not make Benjamin take a rail fenre bevond the hedgo of misfortune. He was obliged to withdraw from the times, t. H. B. McLean's Alarm ran away with flrt-t honors In the Inst class of hunters nnd Jumpers Judged before noon. The VUslnlan, a Glen Rldillo entry, came In second. V. Plunkett Stewart's Triumph was third, nnd fourth honors went to Ilamsnlc, Robert L. Gerry's horse. SPECULATION OVKR FINALS. Enthusiasts have now settled down to a regular mid-week horse show attitude. Already possible winners In various classes are being ricked for entry In tho championship competitions which feature the last day of the exhibition. Iloises which have been consistent In their actions under dlffeicnt riders, nnd others which since the opening of the how have taken several bluo ribbons, nro the subject of conblderable speculation. One of tho burning questions among spec tators seems to be, which horse will such and such an owner enter In champion ship competition from his string of wln rceis. A number of favoiltes of other days have continued In their old-time form at Bryn Mawr during tho week, while a few newcomers have shown marked ability to Eullop off with first pilzcs. Among tho hounds, the principal com petitors today are tho Radnor Hunt Club, the L'lkildgo Hunt Club and tho CI. S. V. Hunt Club. The Judging will be confined uxfluslvcly to half-lnced hounds which Villi he fcten, bitches, dogs singly and In ImIis. None of tho entrants has been thnwn befoio during tho week. Many tuthuslasts who dally surround thu tented Inclostue where the canines are on displuy are anxiously awaltl.ig no of the most Interesting features of the combination horse and hound show which this week Is making Bryn Mawr a metcu for the hunting sot. This Is tha digging test for fox terriers. There aro bevn tntries In this class. in nearly all iiaeks of buntlnir doss shows most marked ability nt this sort of work will receive an award.
