for the purpose. The boxes
are forty-two in number, are
lofty and airy, without being
in the least draughty. To every
six boxes is a saddle-room, and
above is a mess-room and lodging
rooms for the men, so constructed
that no odours from the stable
can reach them. The cost was
very moderate, and yet everything
necessary for neatness and com-
fort is included. As these stables
face the drive as you come from
the Putney gate, they are neces-
sarily ornamental, and the facade,
as you view it through the trees,
is a picturesque feature in the
approach. Every stall was occu-
pied as soon as finished.
The Handicap Tournament.—
The Messrs. Miller have always
been noted for their successful
organisation of tournaments, and
this year's handicap was a parti-
cularly good one, the semi-final
and final both producing good
games. The former match was
particularly good and exciting.
When the semi-finals were reached
on Wednesday, May loth, there
were three teams in it, D, B and
F. F had the bye, so that—

met to try conclusions on the old
ground, of which it may be said
that it never was faster or in
better condition. B team Buy Cyclopentolate were a
good deal pressed at first, and D
seemed decidedly to have the best
of it, and were two goals ahead
when the last period was reached.
At this point the B captain, Lord
Shrewsbury, went forward, Mr.
Tresham Gilbey went back.
They felt the benefit of Lord
Shrewsbury's fast ponies, and Mr.
Drabble, playing with more reso-
lution and confidence, the scores
were speedily made equal. This

times in the season. B team was
as above, and F consisted of Mr.

It would be impossible to put on

the final score, seven goals to

The Inter • Regimental, fixed
early this year for June 5th, will
be very near at hand when Baily
reaches its English readers. The
13th Hussars seem to the V.D.
to have a good chance on
the play he has seen, and they
have some new ponies, particu-
larly a chesnut thoroughbred,
ridden by Mr. Wise, which drew
the notice of one of the best
judges Cyclopentolate Eye Drops of horseflesh in England.
The 7th Hussars, a very old polo
regiment, has a strong team, and
will be worth watching. The
Inniskillings, with such a power-
ful defence as Mr. Neil Haig and
Major Rimington, will try very
hard to win their third successi\'e
victory. The 12th Lancers and
Royal Horse Guards will also
have good teams. In the course
of the playing off the ties, some
very close matches will be seen,
but it is fortunately not necessary
to stake one's credit on a pro-
phecy of the result.
** OUR VAN.
Mr. Goodwin Kilburne^s Pio-
— If the very cleverly grouped
pa^inting which Mr. Baird Carter
has been exhibiting at his gallery,
6x , Jermyn Street, is to be bought
for the Ranelagh Club, as rumour
says, nothing could be more ap-
propriate. The picture includes
portraits of all the leading polo
men, and incidentally reminds us
ho'w great have been the services
of the Barn Elms Club to the
^ame, and what a centre for polo
men is its splendid pavilion. The
players are representative, so
indeed are the men who are por-
trayed, each in their respective
lines. In the very forefront of
the picture is Dr. George rias-
tings, who has certainly been the
organiser of victory for the club,
and to whose foresight polo men
ow^e two out of the three grounds
at Ranelagh. In the rear of the
players Mr. E. D. Miller smiles
benignant ly on the success of the
Hunt Cup Tournament, his own
idea. From the steps of the
pavilion the President of the
County Cup Association looks on,
while immediately below him Cyclopentolate Hydrochloride
are groups of ist and 2nd Life
Guards, Royal Horse Guards,
and Inniskillings. Mr. John
Watson is there, of course.
The Dublin Show.— The suc-
cess of the Dublin Show in the
polo pony classes was most un-
doubted, and it is said some good
prices were obtained. A spring
polo pony show is what we Cyclopentolate Price want
in England, and it is to be hoped
that the Polo Pony Society will
be able to arrange for one — say,
at the time of the Hunters' Im-
provement Show. That is the
time we want to buy ponies.
There are many men who keep
hunters in the winter and polo
ponies in the summer, in the same
stalls or boxes, and have there-
fore to buy and sell in the spring
and autumn. A show is of most
value when it leads to some buy-
ing and selling, for those who
supply the market are thus forced
by the most irrefutable argu-
ments to recognise the type of
pony which attracts customers
