of the limiting set ride straight and
true, never flim-hing when tie' pineli
comes, and often beating scores of men
whose serves were nut ecpial to the run.
For Instance, there wan a ruu last lull
near Hemiwtead, L. I., behind the pack
of the Mendowbrook Hunt Club. Sev
enty riders started, including a dozen
women. There were luH teu In at the
dcalh, all of the others being unhorsed
or forced out of the limit by the tower

swift paeo. f these fortunate mid
liardy ten the most conspicuous was
Mrs. .1. I.. Kernoehan, the only woman
to tinish., .Since then Mm. Kernoehan
has been playfully1 dubbed the "(iueen
of Rough Klijers," and she deserves the
title. In this particular run the dla
tauce traversed was twelve mlli-a, over
eighty different jumps, varying In
height from tlirec feet to five fe't one
inch. It Is conslderel a stiff run when
there are sixty Jiihis.Io twelve miles.
. Moreover, the pace was extremely fast,

Moraewhlppcd Her Father'a Admirer,
Miss Elaine Clarragc, an attractive
young woman residing In San Francis
co, has just achieved notoriety by pub
licly punishing Minu Trimmer, a for
mer friend, because of the persistent
atttr-'ilons she bestowed upon her (Miss
Clarrage's) father. Mis Ohtrrnjre, In
explaining the cause of the afTu1r. said:
"Miua Trimmer was formerly my
friend, and I Introduced her to my fam

but I discovered that she was , too
fricaIy with my father and came to
the honee only to nee hlni. I saw how

one day, the manager of a large estab

to have ail these qualiticatioiis. and for
the uioct piirt they come from good

All that Is neees.ary nt any-stage of
growth is to cut the plant off one to
