( Concluded from page one)
third, and were given "honorable
mention'' owing to the fact that only one
match was required.
For a simple thing, the horsemanship
test was generally enjoyed. A strip of
white canvas fifteen feet square was
stretched in the center of the ring and
the trick was to get the horses upon it.
At first thought one might think the task
comparatively easy, but the attempts
proved quite the contrary. Some of the
horses made little objection, others balk
ed and a few bolted ; the contest devel
oping into a question of force or persua
sion, according to the temperament of
both steeds and riders, making the ques
tion of an award a somewhat difficult
one for the judges. Mr. Van Sickler
won the prize. The jumping exhibition
over three hurdles of varying heights
was excellent and the feature of the af
ternoon. Mr. Hurd was awarded the
prize and Mrs. Teidemann given honor
able mention. The potato race included
events for both men and women, a half
dozen very elusive tubers being trans
ferred across the ring by aid of pointed
lances. Mrs. Tufts and Mrs. Tiedemann
rode a pretty race, Mrs. Tufts winning ;
and Mr. Balfe won by a short margin
over Mr. Smith.
The prizes contributed by those inter
ested, were most attractive. The judges
of the afternoon were Messrs. C. K. Fos
ter of Chicago and F. R. Wing of Brook
line, and Miss E. Marie Sinclair of Bos
ton. Riding Master C. Gerald Taylor
looked after the details of management
in such a way that requests for a similar
event are already very much in evidence.
The North Carolina Oxmouile
A visitor sending a post card of a na
tive ox wagon, which he facetiously
marked "a N. C. oxniobile", has received
the following comment from a Northern
Dear Charles :
Your postal rec'd some days ago and
am glad to see that you are becoming in
terested, in spite of the fact that The
North Carolina "Oxmobile" does not ap
peal to me. There seems to be no wind
shield, the braking surface is too limited
and it has solid tires. The motor is out
of date (has no magneto and would give
unsatisfactory service on the hills), I al
so see no evidence of a change In speed
gear, or differential it seems to be a
shaft drive and the control Is entirely
unreliable. In fact taken as a whole,
the outfit seems to be one of very earliest
design and not used to any extent; un
doubtedly a 499 B, (J. model. I would
recommend a 1911 design and am sure
you would find it more satisfactory in
every way now that you contemplate
