MARSHAL FOCHS CHARGER AN ARAB LONDON, England, December 20. A subscription opened by the Syndicat Hippique des Basses-Pyrenees with the object of presenting a charger to Marshal Foch has closed with a total of about 15,000 francs, which will be disnosed of as follows: 5,000 francs for the purchase of the horse, and the remainder to be given to one or more such war funds as the marshal himself shall designate. The horse chosen by the committee is a beautiful Anglo-Arab. Puritaine, a bay mare, by Velox Ama-zane, foaled in 1915, and winner of the first prize at the war horse show held at Pan last October, Puritalnes breeder, M. Henri Bernet, valued her so highly that he had refused all offers, but on this occasion gladly acceded for patriotic reasons.
