HE visit of the Conti
nental Field Trial Club
made the week one of
exceptional interest for
Village guests, many of
whom followed the open
ing event of the series with interest. In
addition to the big representation of fa
mous field trial winners which the meet
ing brought, there were handlers and
owners of international reputation, the
whole combining to make a gathering
typical in the extreme and depicting a
phase of life with which few are fa
In addition to the members stake event
were the impromptu bench show, and
numerous social gatherings in aRoom
32," where the board of officers made its
headquarters. And last but not least
was the fact that a Pinehurst dog, Ned
M., won a place in the opening event.
THE MEMBERS STAKE.
The members stake was run Saturday
in the territory lying upon either side of
the road to Thagards, and a perfect day
and abundance of birds added to the
pleasure of the outing, some trouble, how
ever, being experienced by the thickness
of the cover. The Derby and All-Age
stakes are in progress as The Outlook
goes to press.
The story of the running in the Mem
bers Stake is told in the following sum
GENTLEMAN ROD AND GLADY.
The first brace down was Gentleman
Rod and Glady. Interest in the heat cul
minated in the finding of two strong
coveys in a . tangled branch which were
flushed with some difficulty, one striking
deep into a swamp and the other swing
ing to the hillside, on the left, where
they were flushed by riders before the
dogs were brought up. In the meantime
several single birds were put up by horse
men in a swale on the left.
MARK ROD AND ROCK.
The next pair was Mark Rod and Rock
and it was one of the prettiest heats of
the day, the winner doing beautiful work
and thus early indicating the probable
result. Interest culminated when Rock
found a good sized covey upon an open
hillside, Mark Rod backing beautifully.
Judge Cornell kicked the covey up and
shot, Mark Rod breaking badly, but
Rock standing firm. The Judge moved
Rock forward a bit and suddenly the dog
came to a second point. Calling the at
tention of the judges and remarking that
there was probably a wounded bird left,
Judge Cornell walked in and kicked out
a cripple which barely managed to escape
the jaws of Mark Rod who pursued it
furiously, unmindful of Mr. Fleisch-
mann's whistle. And Rock, even though
he stood staunch, with some persuasion,
looked as if he felt envious.
SCOTLAND BRAGG AND RYE.
Pretty work characterized this heat and
it was not long before Rye found a covey,
Bragg backing beautifully. The Judge
flushed the covey, killed the first bird,
and not a muscle of either dog moved.
Later on Bragg stood a woodcock in a
bush grown branch and both dogs made
game, not long after, on the hillside, but
no birds were located.
NED M. AND COUNT FLY.
The fourth and last heat was not a suc
cessful one, both dogs making game sev
eral times, but only one or two singles be
ing located on which both dogs did good
SECOND SERIES AND FINALS.
After ordering the last brace up the
judges got their heads together under a
pine tree, a bit apart, and compared notes
while the crowd tightened saddle girths,
stretched tired legs and speculated. Not
long after a second series was announced
in the following order: Rock with
Glady, Gentleman Rod with Ned M., Rye
with Count Fly.
In the first heat Rock and Glady both
did good work, the bitch showing up
better than on her first trial, but as in the
first run, she did not find birds. Near
the end of the running Rock stood a
covey, some distance off, which was
flushed before the crowd arrived. A little
later several singles were flushed by the
Gentleman Rod and Ned M. kept the
crowd interested with numerous pretty
points, but did not locate birds.
In the final heat between Rye and
Count Fly came some clean cut work
which began with a point by Count Fly,
on the hillside, just back of the Pistol
butts. The birds were not there, how
ever, and Rye won the honors by locating
them in the ravine below, Count Fly
flushing a single in backing, both dogs
standing staunch when the covey was
Once more the juges got their heads
together while the crowd, a bit tired,
stretched and speculated, this time a bit
longer than the first, but in due time the
"medicine," as Judge Nick Daniel tersely
expressed it, was doled out. Congratu
lations were showered upon the owners,
horses mounted and with thump of hoofs
and rattle of wheels the cavalcade made
for the Village.
