leading the list. James Nicol is next
with four points, and Cass Campbell,

open paper chase, it Is such a strenu
ous ride that the majority do not rid
through, but go out to be spectators.
The start will be made from the Fort
land Hunt Club grounds at Garden
home, starting at 3 o'clock, and the
trail will be laid, by Mrs. Matt Mc
