THE rrANAT SIDE HARRIERS. These hounds met on Tuesday at Llvnclys in most miserable weather, snow and sleet falling per- sistently throughout the greater part of the day. This did not deter a great many from being pre- sent at the tlwer" but unfortunately much time was cut to waste before a hare could be found, a very different state of affairs to what was experienced in this pare years ago, and easily accounted for, as in the.se good old times the shooting here was in the hands of all-round sportsmen who preserved the hares for hunting purposes. At the present day it is ellieflv ier, to sportiug men who, combining pleasure with profit, do not scruple to shoot all the hares they possibly can, and no wonder hares are so scarce in what is one of the Lest parts of the conntry to ride over. On reaching Crickheath, however, where the farmers are all genuine sports- men, a hafe was speedily found and good sport was obtained, as the weather had improved and there was a good scent. The hounds pressed the hare so m m-h ♦•!>•<<; he Lad to cross the Morton brook, and cn.isel her at a great pace towards Osbaston.
