BRITAIN OPfiNS ITS (COLORFUL FOX HUNT 4, (By Unlwd Press.) MELTON MOWBRAY, Bng., NOV. 4. —Twelve thousand foxhounds, followed by about sixteen thousand horsemen and horsewomen, today experienced tKe first thrills of the>fox-huntlng season, chasing over the meadows, farms and open country in the numerous hunting districts throughout Britain. Preparations for a successful season have been proceeding for the past two months, for many of the younger hounds taking part in today's opening hunts have been going through a course of tralnlngjn seeking and chasing fox cubs. Reports from all the principal hunting centers throughout the country give every promise of a record hunting season, for foxes are more plentiful and stronger than for many years. From an early hour this morning this quaint village, where the headquarters,of the country's best and most exclusive packs are located, presented a scene of feverish activity and keen anticipation. Scarlet coated, silk hatted men,'with women dressed In brown or blue riding habits and silk or Derby hats, were mounted on beautiful and expensive hunters, while the hounds yelped and wagged their tails excitedly, displaying their Impatience to get started on the tail of the wily fox. Hunting folk and villagers alike are a little disappointed that the Prince of Wales will be seen in the hunting saddle less frequently this season than hitherto. It will be remembered that the Prince recently sold the majority of his hunters while Mr. and Mrs. F. Ambrose Clarke, of Westbury, Long (Island, have rented his hunting stables Vat Craven Lodge. Some consolation is •"Yfelt in the knowledge that the prince does not intend to give up hunting altogether, and that when his increasing state duties permit he will/snatch a brief respite in the saddle in his fa- • vorite hunting country around here. Wealthy American, French and Indian 'sportsmen and sportswomen are more numerous than ever in this year's hunts. Many of them have already spent small fortunes in bringing their studs of hunters up to perfection and renting hunting boxes In the best parts of the country. Dances, cocktail and card parties are being held throughout the season In connection with the hunts, but it will be an unprecedented season ff there are no more serious and even tragic sidelights, for many are the accidents and all too frequent' the fatalities attending the thrills of fox-hunting. In addition to the Ambrose Clarkes many other Americans will be prominent in this season. Marshall Field, of Chicago, is staying at Market Harborough, whence he will hunt with the Pytchley and Quorn hounds. Ronald Tree, also nf Chicago, whose stud of thoroughbred hunters is one of the finest in the district, has entered his third season . as joint master of the Pytchley Hunt. Mrs, Algy Buraaby,. fornjerly Minna Field, is assisting her husband who is master of the Quorn pack, while yet another member, of the Field family, Countess Beatty, formerly Ethel Field, will .hunt with Admiral Earl Beatty with local hounds. Other Americans to be seen following the principal packs are ~3. -Macln- vale, Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Walsh, of Long Island, A. C. Bostwlck, Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Davis, the brothers Whitehouse, Victor Emanuel and Lawrence Kimball, of New York. American riders to hounds are regarded here as being among the most fearless and hardest hunters in the .field, and are extremely popular with the villagers who admire good riders , and good animals. JSftftAMS *«A* Wbtftt fcdftft ****. Do you «*e* gel Indulging in ft lot— a pleasant scherries, Klnd-a building fairy castles In a paradise ot dreams, With a lot of Httla wishes, out of reason and o' rhyme, That would weave a crazy pattern in the loom of father time, Sort-a hoping for the clearing 1 that will bring the happy end, Putting sun-beams on the windows of your soul, why then, my friend, You're a dreamer just as I am, and I surely pity you, For there's weary, disappointments in the dreams that w«n't come true Are you always klnd-a hoping that your luck will take a turn, And a-thlnklng sort-a wistful of the things for which you yearn, Sure as fate your ship will weather every storm and make the trip, While you smile so folks can never see the tremble of your lip. Is there always something waiting 'round the corner just ahead, Something fine that you've been want Ing but you always find instead, Just the same old dreary prospect that you're ever plodding through, And it makes a bitter ruin of the dreams that won't come true. Do you ever get to dreaming of a girl so pure and flne, With a loving heart, and loyal, and a temperment divine, Who would help you up to Heaven or In answer to your call, She would follow to perdition and would love you through it all. Could they only make a woman from a man's desiring heart, She would be a wonderous creature and a work of purest art. But they can't, and so your castles come a-turnbllng from the blue, Causing many tears and heart-aches in the dreams that won't come true. When a fellow gits the' habit of believing in his dreams, He Is knocking on the portals of his happiness, it seems, For the summons 1 never pears to ' bring an answer, or a sound, That might mean the angels cared to have him tread on hallowed ground. So It all seems ktnd-a hopeless, and an empty lonesome quest, For the worst is always coming when you're looking for the best, Or at least it is with my lot, and I guess ft Is with you, Yet I know we'll still keep dreaming all the dreams that won't come true. — Thos.

IN THE BUSINESS WORLD OF TODAY LISTEN -there's NO HUH ARCFURUS DLUE A-C LONG LIFE RADIO TUBES , By 3. C. Stftflt Correspondent. (Copyright, 1028, by Altoorm Mirror.) NEW YORK, Nov. 4.—Real estate men, construction engineers, material producers and builders are waiting eagerly for Investment trends to crys- talize after the excitement in the stock market. They assert that a huge volume of building has been held up due to difficulty in financing new construction. They hope that with the disappearance of the general public from the speculative markets, money wlllbecome more readily available and Investments will turn towards securities backed by building construction. There seems to be a general feeling that bonds backed by real estate mortgages again will become a favorite type of Investment and that such offer- ngs will be eagerly accepted. In this connection the operations of the New York real estate exchanges, which will open within the next six weeks/ will 3e watched with extreme interest. The obpect of this new market Is to pro- vide a board of trading by which established real estate bond issues and securities backed by real estate and contraction values can find ready purchase and sale. The difficulty of realizing promptly on real estate bonds not listed on recognized exchanges in the past has been of the factors mitigating against this type of finance. Building contract awards showed a decided slump after August, In September they were approximately 20 per cent lower than in September, 1928. In fact, the drop In building so far this year has been about 10 per cent below the corresponding period of last year. In 1928 the fall months showed a decided step upward. This year the decline In October has been above 25 per cent. Building men say that while housing needs may have been fairly well covered, necessity exists for additional construction of commercial industrial and public building. They hope that If the Investment trends favors them the plans for such buildings will be transferred' Into active operation and that the cost of construction. Including financing will be sufficiently low to assure adequate returns. There are no indications of any marked decline in construction cost at the money. Skilled labor In the building trade Is now averaging approximately $1.38 per hour compared with $1.35 a year ago.

(AM11I)J terlals are lower owing to excessive production of cement, brick and luhv jer, but the two factors have about mianced each other. The stimulation to building, therefore, Is expected to come from lower money rates. Approximately $2,500,000 will bo needed In the next year for business and .ndustrlal cnostructlon alone, It Is estimated by real estate men. Some real estate operators are inclined to turn the Investment trusts as a method of financing this construction, and several such organizations have already entered the real estate fleld. There Is also a trend towards "equity securities" represented by preferred and common stock. The Insurance companies still are counted on to furnish a huge volume of funds for building purposes. The New York life, for example, has outstanding at present 8555,347,000 In mortgage loan investment, of which $54,357,092 was loaned In the flrst nine months of this year. Other large insurance corporations have closely followed this trend. The real estate loans of the Prudential Insurance company total $142,260,541 for the first nine Months of this yea*. Although ..real estate and construe* tlon men are extremely hopeful for the future, it is doubtful If even low money' rates would result In, an immediate spurt of awarding of building ebn- tracts. They are waiting to see Just what effect the flurry In Wall Street has had upon the remainder of the country and business in general and they ar. unlikely to start new propecta until they are sure building expansion is justified. They have been greatly reassured by the statements of President Hoover, Secretary of Commerce Lamont, and Dr. Julius Kline of the deportment of commerce that business conditions are essentially sound. tDIO ALTOONA RADIO & ELEC.
