In the Hunt Country
Activities Among the Horse Lovers in Virginia and Maryland. Loudoun Hunt had a good day of sport on Saturday when the hounds met at Big Spring. They started a i fox at once that ran to Balls Bluff, then down the Potomac River to Goose Creek, which they crossed, running over good galloping country until they reached Mr. Warner Snider’s farm. Crossing that they denned their prey after a two-hour run. The field was small, but those out had a thrilling time. Besides the master, Judge • Peck” Alexander, those hunt ing were Mr. Clarke Hoge. Miss Anna Hederick, Mr. Fred Malone, Mr. Sam ^Alexander and Mr. John Royston. Mr. Royston escaped injury when his horse went down at a stifl fence. Mlddleburg Hunt met at Middle burg on Saturday with a good-size field, including about 20 Foxcroft girls. After a long run Miss Noland, joint-master of the hunt with Daniel C. Sands, suggested ending the hunt, but the girls begged to continue, which they did. Mr. Harry Worcester Smith ‘was out hunting, having just returned home from several days’ visit to Mr. and Mrs. William du Pont at their place. Fair Hills, Md.. where he en joyed hunting with Mr. du Pont’s Foxeatcher Hounds. Other guests of the Du Ponts who were hunting with him were Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bontecou (he is master of Millbrook Hunt), Mr. John Bowditch of Boston and Mr. O'Malley Knott. All of this hunting crowd are well known in Virginia, where they hunt each season. The Bontecous once lived near Middleburg when they owned the place now owned by Mr. and Mrs. Holland Potter. Jfent Furr of Mountsville is hunts man of Foxeatcher Hounds and his brother, Carl Furr, runs the whole hunting establishment for Mr. du Pont. Mr. Evelyn Harrison of Balti more returned home with Mr. Smith and is visiting him for several days Wt My Hunting Box. Mrs. Merrill Hubbard or Chicago, who spent the first nart of the hunt season in Middleburg. where she rents Mrs. Arthur White's house. Stray Shot, has returned here with her daughter, Miss Elizabeth Hubbard, and they are both being welcomed back into the hunting field. Baron Richard d'Epremesnil has /*en staying in Virginia for about a year, and last week he returned to Prance, to be gone two months. Baron ess d'Epremesnil and their two chil dren will be with her mother, Mrs. Henry T. Oxnard, at her home, Edge wood, while he is abroad. The baron took as presents to his friends in Prance his favorite food, half a dozen cooked Virginia hams, cured, cooked and packed in fine style, as only Mrs. E. C. Hempstone of Leesburg, Va., can “put them up.” * Invitations have been sent out to a most novel party, to be given by Mr. George Benoit of Fredericksburg next Saturday. Mr. Benoit, who hunts with the Fairfax Hunt, will give a breakfast following the hunt on next Saturday, at the Carlton Hotel. The party is causing much excitement. I'll write about it next week.
