THE TAXAT SIDE HARRIERS. These hounds had another capital day at Llany- blodwel on Tuesday, but owing to Sir W W Wynn's fox hounds meeting on the same day at Rednal there were very few present at the start. As soon as the hounds commenced to draw on Abertanat land two hares jumped up, one of which the bound. settled down to, and ran at a great pace several times round the neighbourhood. At one time the hare was so pressed that she crossed and re-crossed the river Tanat near the bridge at Rhydmeredith, and after crossing over the banky land by Cefn, Brynyfedwin, and Tynycoed, she ran down across the fields at the back of Dolwen and the Gro, and took refuge in a rabbit hole, from whence it was found impossible to dislodge her, and thus ended this capital run which lasted nearly two hours and with no checks of any long duration. After partaking of luncheon at Bryn Tanat another hare was found near that place which afforded another good run lasting till nearly four o'clock when the hounds were stopped as George the huntsman had noticed a fox start away through a covert the hounds were hunting in; fortunately they stuck to the hare and did not get on his line or it would have been a repititiou of the last time these hounds met here when they ran clear awav from everyone and were not found again -jll several hours after darkness had set in. lt was a splendid day for the sport and the few present thoroughly enjoyed it.
