THE DOG SHOW
Champion Lansdowne Sunflower
Best in Show
The Third Annual Dog Show held on
Thursday and Friday of last week under
the A. K. C. rules had an entry list of
203 dogs and 372 entries in 106 classes,
and from the point of sporting dogs was
among the largest shows in America.
The size of the entry permitted the maxi
mum of five championship points in seven
different breeds as follows: American
Fox Hounds, Pointers, English Setters,
Wire-haired Pointing Griffons, Shepherd
dogs, Chow Chows and Pomeranians.
This is as many championship points as
can be awarded at any show. Four points
were awarded in the Pekingese and three
points in the Wire-haired Fox Terriers
The show was particularly notable for
its entry of sporting dogs. The English
Setters and Pointers classes were larger
than at the last Westminster show and
included most of the high winners of that
Champion Lansdowne Sunflower, en
tered by . Mrs. B. F. Lewis, Jr., of Lans
downe, Pa., was adjudged best in show.
This is the third year in succession that
this beautiful greyhound has won the dis
tinction of best in show at Pinehurst.
Best of Opposite Sex was awarded to C.
L. Gilliland's Aberfoyle Frilford Felix,
the major winner in the Wire-haired Fox
Some of the country's most famous
dogs were entered. This included "Who
Goes There, ' ' a fine Bull specimen that
has won best in all breeds at a number
of shows throughout the country; Kam
arad II, a Badger dog formerly known
as Dachshundes, has never been beaten at
any show, and easily won first in his
class; Flock von Bern, a Police dog, and
one of ten out of thousands of Police
dogs in America that has a title of Ph.
This dog was trained and served on the
German police force. . Two Wire-haired
Fox. Terriers, Abercoyle Frilford Felix,
and Abercoyle the Pilot's Damsel, be
longing to C. L. Gilliland, are valued at
$5,000.00 each. An interesting entry
was that of Cairn Terriers, a breed prac
tically unknown in this section of the
country, and a goodly representation of
Whippets, which are racing dogs and are
trained the same as horses and used for
racing. There was an unusual repre
sentation of ' Chow. Chows.
The show was under the able manage
ment of Mr. George F. Foley of Phila
delphia, and to him much credit is due
the huge success of the affair. In
addition to the money prizes a handsome

After tying Perry Adair in the quali
fying round of the North and South
amateur championship, B. P. Merriman
of the Waterbury Country Club, worked
his way through to the thirty-six hole
final round where he met and defeated
Gardiner White of Nassau, by the juicy
margin of 9 up and 8 to play, in one of
the most remarkable final rounds ever re
corded at Pinehurst. r
White was the favored one to win the
title, but after playing exceptionally
good golf throughout the match-play
rounds he seemed to go to pieces in the
final and never had a chance after the
first four holes were played. Merriman
won the fifth and was never headed. -White
did not win a hole in the 18-hole
morning round and started the afternoon
match 8 down.
The first four holes of their match did
not give the slightest inkling of the run
away that it was to develop into. Rather,
there was every reason to expect that
they would have a nip-and-tuck battle all
the way, which was the reasonable ex
pectation after the good golf each had
displayed in the matches leading up to
the final. Stroke for stroke they went
in the first four holes of the day, the only
error to that stage being Merriman 's
wide drive at the second and White's
topped second, in consequence of which
they halved the hole in 5 instead of a par
4. When it came to the fourth they
thrilled the gallery and built up hopes of
sensational play for the rest of the way,
for White sank a putt for a birdie 3
from off the green and Merriman dupli
cated on a putt only a few feet shorter.
But at the fifth White began to waver,
especially in his driving, sending a ball
into the trees from the tee, a habit which
stayed with him more or less all through
the remainder of the match. He lost
this hole then dropped another by driv
ing into the woods at the seventh. A pe
culiar circumstance cropped up here.
White could not find his ball and wont
back to the tee to drive another. When
someone announced that the ball had
been located, he went back, played the
found ball up to the green and then dis
covered that it was not his. Merriman
went down in 5 and took the hole.
Another disappointment awaited White
at the short eighth, where he drove to the
green, with Merriman in the rough to the
left. Merriman made a splendid recov
ery on his second and sank a 25-foot putt
for 3, while White took 3 putts and lost a
hole that looked certain to be his. Open
