Commenting upon the work of entries
from the Pinehurst Kennels, Belle of
Pinehurst and Rosemont Spec, in the
Eastern Field Trials at Newton, The
American Field says :
This brace was cast off in a large open
field that they soon searched with intel
ligent casts. At the farther edge of
another field Belle pointed a bevy and
Mike backed promptly and handsomely,
both dogs being steady to wing. Upon
being sent on, Belle found another bevy.
This occurred in the sedgegrass near the
first field and close to where the first
bevy was found, and both dogs seemingly
put renewed energy into their work after
finding these birds. Belle then pointed
a single in the woods and was steady to

wing. Belle was steady, staunch, and
hunted to the gun industriously. Mike
was not running up to his true form.
This brace was cast off in an open
wheatfield stubble and both dogs went
away with moderate pace and range.
Queen was the first to get on game, and
on the top of a steep hill by the edge of
woods, pointed a bevy which was fully
seventy yards away, Spec pointing at the.
same time. Then Queen began roading
and went on into the woods, where she
lost the trail, for it was on dry- leaves.
Spec now came up, stuck to the trail
without a bobble and finally located the
bevy by footscent. It was a splendid
piece of work, performed confidently
and accurately on high dry ground.
Spec then in an open sedgefield, found a
bevy which she pointed in good style and
Queen backed.
