In the Hunt Country
Activities Among the Horse-Lovers of
Virginia and Maryland.
BY NINA CARTER TABB.
HUBERT B. PHIPPS of Rector
town, Va„ son of Mr. and
Mrs. Jay S. Phipps of West
bury, Long Island, and The
Mill, near Middleburg, Is the new ed
itor and publisher of the Fauquier
Democrat, the oldest newspaper in
Fauquier County. This is a twice
weekly paper, with offices in War
renton, the county seat of Fauquier.
Thomas E. Frank of Warrenton found
ed this paper in 1906, ran it success
fully for a number of years and then
aold it to the late Harrison Nesbit.
Mr. Frank bought it back several
years ago and has just sold it to Mr.
Phipps, who takes over control No
vember 1. His first issue will be No
vember 3, election day.
The Fauquier Democrat has al
ways been a strong Democratic
mouthpiece for this section of Vir
ginia, and the same policy will be
continued by Mr. Phipps, who is
chairman of the Young Democrats of
Scott District. He has been most for
tunate in securing Gerald B. Webb, jr.,
who has had newspaper experience,
to help him in this venture. Mr.
Webb was formerly from Colorado
Springs and recently moved here from
Chicago, where he has been in busi
ness for the past four years. He is
well known in Virginia, having attend
ed the University of Virginia, class of
1932, with Hubert Phipps. He has vit
ited in this part of the country for a
good many years. ‘'Gerry’’ Webb
comes by his fondness for Virginia
naturally, as he is a great-grandson
of Jefferson Davis. His father is Dr.
Gerald B. Webb of Colorado Springs,
a noted tubercular specialist, and his
mother was Miss Varina Margaret
Hayes of Mississippi, daughter of Joel
Addison Hayes. Mr. Phipps and Mr.
Webb will endeavor to make the
Fauquier Democrat a paper of coun
ty-wide interest, with contents of
value and interest to all subscribers.
The new publication will carry
special notes of farming Interest as
well as data on hunting, racing and

The Cobbler Hunt, near Delaplane.
Va., had the misfortune to have their
entire kennel burn to the ground on
Tuesday. They could not go out
hunting on Wednesday as scheduled.
The fire started from a stove on
which food for hounds was being
cooked. All hounds were saved, but
kennels, sleeping quarters tor the
huntsmen and every building went up
In smoke, a complete loss to the hunt
club, since they were not insured. Dr.
Edmund Horgan, M. F. H., is keep
ing hounds in box stalls fixed up as
temporary quarters, and he will con
tinue hunting next week.
An amusing incident of this sad
loss to the club, is that when *he !
huntsman and whips finally got
hounds out of the biasing kennels,
the hounds ran around in delight at
being out, started a fox, and could
be heard for three hours “giving
tongue" as they can over hill and
dale with no followers. No hanging
around watching a fire for those keen
hounds! They came home later tired
and happy, to their new box-stall

REAPED AT FINISH
Child Who Put Mrs. Timleck
in Tie for $500,000
1' the Auoeleted Freu.
TORONTO, October 30 —It was the
reaper, not the stork, who stood today
at the finish line of Toronto’s weird
baby race, holding the checkered flag.
On the eve of the finale of Charles
Vance Millar’s fantastic "who can
have the most babies” contest, little
Blanche Timleck, whose birth put her
mother in a tie for Millar’s $500,000
prize, died last night.
The child had lived scarcely three
months. Two blood transfusions, one
this week from her father, failed to
save her from intestinal Influenza.
Even old Charley Millar, jester,
woman-hater and eccentric though he
may have been, hardly could have
anticipated that the hearse and not
the cradle would creak the final note
to his baby race.
Stork Hovers Overhead.
"I would gladly forfeit the entire
fortune.” Mrs. Timleck said only a
few days ago, "if only my baby could
That was something Charley Mil
lar's gold couldn’t do—save a life.
To the spirit of his will, the death
of Blanche Tlmleck—and other
"marathon" babies before her—does
not matter. Once a baby is registered
Blanche counts. Blanche may have
proved the human clincher to her
mother’s share of Millar gold.'
Still the unwearying stork circled
overhead; and still mothers prayed for
With barely more than a single day
remaining for babies to qualify under
Millar's will, two of the outstanding
figures In the marathon—Mrs. Lily

Full Moon Good Time.
As Gus Graslano, who still thinks
his wife is a contender, was saying
"There’ll be a full moon Saturday—
and that's a good time to have babies."
Ous claims nine, but admits they
aren't all registered.
With one challenge to the will al
ready filed by persons describing them
selves as "next to kin," and with the
executors themselves asking for a court
decision as to the validity of the
"mothers' clause,” more complications
There was a hint the city of Toronto
would claim a refund equal to the
amount of relief it has given, pro
vided the winner Is a family the city
has cared for. In the case of Mrs.
Kenny, some of whose children have
been hospitalized at public expense for
long periods, the amount was said to
run into thousands of dollars.

season to be the best In years.
Paints Scene of His Own Death.
Death came last month to a young
art teacher of Edinburgh, Scotland,
at Coldingham Sands, St. Abbs, a
scene whiqji he had painted a year
previously. The picture was exhib
ited by the Society of Scottish Artists.
Colin MacNaughton, the artist, went
to St. Abbs on a holiday and was
caught In an undercurrent while
bathing with several companions and
swept out to sea.
