When you buy loaded shotgun shells you buy by name.
You ask. for your favorite make and see to it that you get it.
But if this is all you do you omit an important detail.
You overlook the matter of powder.
It is just as easy to obtain a powder with which you
are familiar, a powder in which you have full confidence, as
t is to obtain your favorite make of shell.' You ask for the
powder by name just as you ask for the shell.
Infallible and "E. C." can be obtained, in all of the fol
lowing makes of shotgun shells.

THE NEW HURDLE KINCf
(Concluded from page one)
the turn by a length or more. By fairly
hurniner the ground up, he boiled home,
winner by a span and a breadth. Mr.
de la Cora riding Sam finished a good
third, while Cameron up on Jessie C. had
to be content with last poles.
King Charlie, whose ancestors have all
kinds of blue and pink ribbons, who was
driven by Reeves, had it all his own way
in the 2.20 trot and pace. Without any
preliminaries he immediately went to the
fore in the first heat, showing a pair of
heels that would make old Dan Patch
iealous with envy. In the second heat he
again showed that he was supreme and
justified the driver's expressed convic
tion, there was only one horse in the race.
Daniel Y. owned and driven by Dr. James
and Ed. A., Shepherd's horse fought it
out for second place in both heats, which
resulted in Daniel V. taking second place
in the first heat and third place in the
second and last heat. Nancy Patch, the
grey belonging to the Tabb stables came
in for fourth money. '
Farm Boy driven by the grand old mas
ter of the ring, Thomas, was brought
forth to her doom when she met Mary E.
Brown in the 2.14 pace. This big white
racer had the pole in the first heat but
broke before he had reached the first
turn. Aristotle gave chase, but the
brown mare was out to win and nothing
could stop her. The second heat started
with Thomas gradually overhauling the
fast little mare. But three-fourths of
the course had been covered when Farm
Boy broke again and the lost ground was
never redeemed. Aristotle again came
in a close second and Farm Boy last.
In the 44 furlong dash for thorough
breds, Whymark up on Lady Betty, mak
ing her debut on the Pinehurst track,
gave Hatto with Call up and Miss
CaAytaba ridden by dimiutivo Tabb, a
snappy chase. She led the bunch into
the stretch, . and held the advantage of
an inch or two all the furious way to
the wire. Miss Catawba held about
same advantage over Hatto.
Molly 0 again put the old Pinehurst
favorite Kinderlu with Thomas up, in the
back ground in the Thoroughbred flat
mile race. Thomas got off to a bad start
and Hardy was right on the heels of
Molly 0., Half way. around Thomas be
gan to gain on the leaders, but the pace
was too much and he failed to hold the
spurt. Call gave his horse the high sign
and the lead between Molly O and Hardy
began to . diminish until there was hardly
a half a length between them. But the
mare had shot her bolt and in this order
the race finished. '
ly h African Hard
'The Saints forbid that we should at
tempt any description of the battle pulled
off over the 'Hurdles that day when
the run has been immortalized in Homeric
vein by Crip, the inspired bard of the
stables, of Congo extraction. Crip has
the eye of an eagle, and is the final au
thority on all matters pertaining to the
racing game. Small wonder then that
our reporter repaired to him for hi
opinion upon the mixup in the steeple
chase. And without the minutest altera
tion we are passing it on to the lucky
public. 1$ should be added . that the
line up consisted of Melos ridden by
Whymark, Col. Swigert's fast little
Miriam H with Wells up, Traveller -ridden
by Williams and Call on E. l
Call's Fort Johnson. Said, the oracle
' ' The Starter gave 'em their orders
The jockeys left in a bunch
Wells and Miriam ran round the win?
And Whymark fell at the jump.
Call and Williams they looked back
And seen they wasn't there,
They looked each othvr then and 'lowed
' We 're 011 the way somewhere. '
Travelior and Fort' Johnson sped
Around dat bend with heel to head
Fort Johnson said we '11 take the spills.
And help to pay our boarding bills.
But Wells he yells to Miriam H
Come on and finish off this race
And Molos said Whymark git up
And hit the grit to take a place.
So Why got up at Melos word
By having good consolation
They finished third."
But meantime Fort Johnson had mad?
his mark, and worn down the sturdy Trav
elior. Call brought him over the line in
parade style, a length or two to the good.

THE SPIRIT OF, ENGLAND
(Continued from page seven)
Soissons. Mary is our chauffeur-mechan
ic (trained) and helps me oversee things
at the farm, and on the roads; Evelyn
lives on one of the farms and works in
the fields like a 3-a day woman worker
was hoeing turnips all last week we
shall all be haymaking this week. Also
there is the Red Cross work and what
urges us most, the precious work for
soldiers and sailors, their wives and de
pendents. It is charming to have my
husband home from Friday to Monday
but it has not happened now for five
months. He tells me that the American
contingent now joining the French are
just saving the situation as France is so
terribly at the end of her man power.'
My Belgians are crood ( or eoodish)
and are still here Door souls. (100 of
them). They have got rather tired of
being good and are the only people I
know of in the district who are not
literally doing their best. But when
peace conies they have doubtless a worse
time to look forward to than we have.
All the same they are decidedly softer
than when Caesar knew them.
After it is all over we shall all be a
bit quaver, and some of us will be rather
liverish but I think we will all bring
gay hearts with us and the determination
to begin building our world again with
no false frontage if possible.
