f_r*' HAT "old things have passed
' away and all things have be
*" come new" was especially cm
phaslzod Saturday morning, when the
attention of Franklin Street was di?
rected toward a pretty young girl rid?
ing astride a well groomed horse with
as much up! imb as If she had done lit?
tle else since he/ babyhood. The con?
trast between this Jaunty figure and
her grandmother, the beauty of whose'
riding habit was measured by the
sweep of its length and the slant of
her plumed hat, showed the long dis?
tance that the social world lias trav?
eled between tlie then and the now.
Most of tiie spring months Rich?

the weekly runs of the Deep Hun
Hunt. Riding is considered one of.

fad will by no means die out before
the Winter season is on to approve and;
applaud.

LETTER THROWS NO LIGHT
ON BRILLHART SUICIDE
F??hci-ln-l.nvt Believes Lieutenant
lind Nervous UreukdiMvn From
Overwork.
Washington. D. C. August ??Mrs.
Ros? Osgood Brillhart, whose hus?
band. Lieutenant Charles E. Brillhart.
U. S. N., committed suicide in New York
Thursday. left here yesterday to
go to York, Pa., where her hutband'3
body was taken frotrl New York, and
where the funeral took place to?
day. Mrs. Brillhart was accom?
panied by her father, Whitman Osgood;
her mother and her aunt, Mrs. C. E.
Clifton.
The letter written to Mrs. Brillhart
by her husband, and found lying near
him after he had killed himself, and
later mailed to Mrs. Brillhart by the
New York authorities, was received by
her father here and opened and read
by him.
Letter Gives No Clue.
Mr. Osgood declared that the letter
threw no light on the suicide of Lieu?
tenant Brillhart; that it was an af?
fectionate letter, saying that the
young officer hoped soon to be home.
There was no suggestion that he was
contemplating suicide in the letter,
which contained not more than lifty
words. After saying that he hoped to
be home soon, Lieutenant Brillhart
asked after his wife's health.
The letter was carefully written and
\ sealed, showing no signs of h/stc or
disorder.
Mrs. Brillhart hBS been so unnerved
! since the news of her husband's death
reached her that she saw no one to?
day at her apartment in the Cairo, ex?
cept members of her family.
No Navy Deportment Inquiry.
The Navy Department will accept tho
report of the suicide of Lieutenant
Brillhart from New York, and will
make no further investigation of the
matter, it was stated to-day by Acting
Secretary of the Navy Beekman Win?
throp.
??Appreciating the sorrow the. un-.
fortunate affair must cause his rela-'
tlves. the department has no desire
to keep the suicide of Lieutenant Brill
hart in the eyes of the public," said
Mr. Winthrop.
In the opinion of Mr. Osgood, the
suicide of Lieutenant Brlllhard came
as the result of overwork. He pointed
out that Lieutenant Brlllhard had
worked hard over the inquiry which
I followed the collision between the Dol?
phin and the motor boat Culprit Fay,
and that after this strain he had
continued his work as Inspector of
ordnance at the navy yard without
taking a rest. Mr. Osgood declared
that the continued overwork had
brought on a nervous breakdown.

Is assured. And when It was an?
nounced that The Times-Dispatch Is
going to give away absolutely free

gies and harness, there immediately
came a "how?" "when?" and "want
to know all about it-"
The announcements have been made,
containing full particulars of just
how the outfits are to be given away,
and also that there would be other
prizes, conslsl'ng of rive diamond
rings, five bicycles and five gold
watches. It will be a contest that any
boy or girl under eighteen years of

If you want to be the winner of one
of tho pony outfits, the thing for
you to do Is to make up your mind
that you are going to win, and that
