season, a winner from

has a program more happily combined
events which provided fun for both con
testants and onlookers, and there was
never a moment from the time of start
in the egg contest, until the last rider in
the umbrella race crossed the hue that
interest lagged. New and old events

felt happy when it was over.
Here's to the committee !

Three heats, three participants each,
were run off, Mrs. M. A. Crockett, Mr.
Allan Lard and Mrs. Tufts being the win
ners, and by general consent the final heat
was decided by draw.
The familiar potato race was the last
event in the ring, Mr. Todd, Mr. Whit
ridge and Mr. Harold J. Toftey finishing
The participants and onlookers then ad
journed to The Carolina, from which the
closing events of the morning began.
The first of these was the relay race so
popular last year, in which the contest
ants rode in teams to the Dickinson
School gate and return, transferring a
mail pouch in relays, the best time win
ning. The conditions imposed were that
the rider should receive the pouch on the
ground, mount, ride to a point where the
next member of the team was stationed,
dismount, hand the pouch to the waiting
rider, and so on down the line and back.
Horses and riders entered into the spirit
of the event in a manner which brought
fourth enthusiasm and applause from the
onlookers, and the finishes were all hair

the egg and spoon race, so popular last
year, in which contestants rode across the
ring and back to the starting point, car
rying eggs resting in tablespoons. The
conditions imposed were that the fingers
could not be used to keep the egg in
the spoon, and in case it was dropped
the rider was called upon to dismount,
pick up the egg by aid of the spoon only,
and remount, permission being given to
grasp the egg with the fingers only dur
ing the process of mounting. All sorts
of ludicrous situations resulted in the
struggle to get the eggs across the ring
and back, Mrs. Leonard Tufts, Mr. J.
Cushing Todd, and Mr. Horatio L. Whit
ridge winning the ribbons and finishing
The second number was a new feature
here, and sufficiently out of the ordinary
to make it exceedingly ludicrous and at
tractive ; a pig driving contest in which
a number not in the gymkhana, partici
pated. The game was to drive a small ra
zor back shoat across the ring by aid of a
clever harness, in the shortest possible
time. To attempt to describe what hap
pened would be useless.
It all began when the pigs were taken
out of the box, and it lasted until they
were put back, and it was chase pig, catch
The teams were captained by Mr. Todd
and Mr. Whitridge, the former including
Mr. Tofi'ey and Miss Mary C. Dutton, and
the latter, Mrs. Tufts and Miss Naumberg,
Mr. Todd's team winning in 1 minute 18
and 3-5 seconds, Mr. Whitridge's making
1 minute 45 and 1-5 seconds.
Next in order came the dummy race,
which caught the crowd upon its first ap
pearance, and the same difficulties were
experienced which thrilled and amused
last week. Mrs. Tufts rode a beautiful
race, winning in 49 and 1-5 seconds, with
Mr. Wrhitridge second in 51 and 3-5, and
Mr. Tofiey and Mr. Todd tied at 54 and
The closing event was a new feature,
the umbrella race, in which participants
were called upon to mount with a closed
umbrella, ride to the top of the Dickinson
School road hillock, dismount, open the
umbrella, remount, and return to the
This event presented difficulties which
in some cases were well-nigh insurmount
able, for the average horse regarded the
umbrella as something to be shunned and
feared, but the ride home against the
"wind" was certainly worth going a long
ways to see.
