[NORTH WALES PUPPY SHOWS. I FLINT AND DENBIGH. The annual puppy walk in connection with the Flint and Denbigh Hunt waa held at Cefn, near St. Asaph, on Friday, in fine weather. The judges were Mr. E. W. Griffiths, Plas Newydd, deputy master of the Belvoir Hunt; lVlr Guy Thompson, Ystrad, of the South Oxford Hunt; assisted by Mr. Povey, late huntsman of the Flint and Den- bigh Hunt Twenty-four puppies were walked, and the judges declared them to be of good colour, a very level lot, and the best soeai a.t Cefn for many years The results were as follows:—Dog: 1, Valiant, walked by Mr. Lloyd, Tyddol, Col- wyn; 2, Despot (Mr. W. Hughes, Plas Coch, St. Asaph); 3, Henchman (Mr. Rowlands, Dolwen, Coed Cooh). Bitches: 1, Trifle (Mr. John Williams, Abergele); 2, Fiction (Mr. M'Nicholl, Coed Coch); 3, Destiny (Mr. Roberts, St. Asaph). Mrs. Williams-Wynn entertained tho oom pany &t luncheon at Cefn Hall after the wa4k. The ohair was occupied by Mr. Owen J. Williams, one of the joint masters, who re fcrred to the excellent neighbourly fooling which now existed between tho members of tho Hunt, the farmers cottagers, and the owne's of the covers Thero was a marked change all round during the past few years, and he aittributed it in no small measure to their meeting at Cefn onoo a year. Cefn had done much for hunting, and while a few years ago they found some difficulty in getting peoplo to take the puppies, now thoy found they had not sufficient to go round. (Applause.) They had a beautiful lot of puppies brought in this year. Responding to tho toast of his mother (Mrs. Williams-Wynn), Colonel R. W illiams-Wynn said that the Cefn family had for many years taken the d-oopest interest in hunting, and not only was his mother still able to follow the hounds, tJut. that day they had with them in the person of Mrs. Godsall (her sister) an- other enthusiastic follower of the hounds. (Ap- plause.) Those puppy walks brought them closer together, and there was now a neigh bourly foeling that was never looked for or expected a few years ago. It was a aouroe of great onoouragement to the joint masters of the Hunt to find so many willing to take the I puppies and to bring them back in suoh ex- cellent condition. I WYNNSTAY. The Wynnstay Hunt Puppy Show took place at the Wynnstay Kennels, Ruahon, an Friday. There was an entry of 181 couples, and it was probably the best entry of recent years. The judges were Sir William Curtis, late Master of t.he Ludlow Hunt, and Mr. Wilson, late Master of tho North Cheshire Hunt., and the twards were as 1, Lancer (walked by Mr. W. Howell, Ruabon); 2, Landlord (Mr. F. V. Grange, Farndon); 3, Ferryman (Mr. T. Diokin. Cockshutt). Bitches: 1, Laundnet-s (Mr. Parkor. Sutton Green); 2. Willing (Mr. Hanmer Jones, glietbrook); 3, Laura (Mr. Sheppard, Kidnal). Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, the Master of the Hunt, entertained a largo paity at iunobt?n. and. in proposing the health of the puppy walkers, said that hunting continued to flourish. There were croakers who said that its days wero numb -red and that it was growing Ires popular. Personally, he did not, think this was the caae. On the other hand, he thought hunting was be- coming more popular and was being looked upon more as a business which brought, more money into a country. Ho did not believe there was a single house with stabling for tihreo or four horses or more to be let in the Wynnstay country. Fox-hunting was one of th? oldest and finest sports in t-lie country, and one which engendei;ied a good feeling among all classes.
