yesterday, and it wa? the best sesslon
oi tho .how, for thc hollday crowd
trooped along in great iiumhere. More
than likely lt was the dnaj act of Judg
li?g the English foxhound packs thut

arid ca?i-r for the chasc, the huntsraan
and whipper-ln arrayed ln tho tlcld
coats of red and with whips cracktng.
J'our huntsmen and whlpa sported the
orthodox red, whlle one had a rlg of
green and another woro black.
A. II. Hlgglnson, M. F. II.. of the
Mlddlesex Hunt, was the Judge, and
each pack in turn was p&radcd ln front
or him. After thc six packs went
througli thclr facings it narrowed
down to a choice between thc Geiiescc
Valley pack and the Brandywine pack
of Weatchoster, Pa. They wero brought
out trlco before Hlgglnson picked thc
Brandywine, and he placed the Genes
seo rescrvc. The prlze for the class is
5150 or platc of that value.
Tho American foxhound packs -were
brought in immediately afterward, and
ln slzo and appearancc comparcd poor?

thc prlze of $130 or plate of that value
was won by thc Loudoun Hunt, of
Leesburg, Va., wltli \V. II. Smlth as

the rcserve went to the same nunt.
