FARMER THRASHED. Mr Oswald Riley, M.F. H., and the Drag Layer. The remarkable spectacle of a master of foxhounds thrashing a farmer with a hunt- ing crop was witnessed on Wednesday in last week, near Grateley, Hants. About fifty people attended the meet of the Tedworth pack at Abbotts Ann. The • first fox was found in Stonehanger Wood. but there was no scent, and the fox escaped. The master proceeded to draw other coverts, when suddenly, without a trace of a fox, half-a-dozen hounds picked up a lina in the open. The master at once recognised this as a drag from the smell of aniseed. The pack went away on the false trail at lightning speed, and the master allowed the hounds to continue, in the hope of overtaking the layer of the drag. When the hounds were racing towards Grateley the master saw a horseman ahead, so he galloped forward and overtook him. The man was a prominent local farmer, and the outcome of the meeting was that Mr Oswald Riley. the master, administered a thrashing to him with his hunting crop. Then the master promptly ordered the hound a back to their kennels for the day. Mr Riley will be recognised by Hereford- shire people as a son of Alderman J Riley, of Putley Court, Ledbury. He is a noted breeder and trainer of bloodhounds, and an all round sportsman.
