I THE LEDBURY BEAGLE HARRIERS. I These hounds, which have been providing consistently good sport throughout the season, showed to extra advantage after meeting at Bromesberrow Heath on Thursday last. The weather was gloriously fine for the time of year, and quite contrary to expectations scent was good enough for these good driving little hounds. After drawing a couple of fields close to the meet blank, a move was made across the road to Mr Williamson's farm, where a good straight necked hare was soon found, and hounds running with a rare cry rattled her through the gorse and on across the plough for Ketford Firs, running straight through and over Mr T Lane's farm for Ketford Bridge. Here puss, not caring to cross the river, made back right-handed, leaving Callow farm on the left, for Limetrees, and hounds, running from scent to view, rolled her over in the open, after a very fast 40 minutes with scarcely a check. After a series of blank draws our second hare was moved on Mr Denby's farm, and gave what proved the longest run so far this season, without making any great point. Going away across the big fields at Lintridge (giving the numerous spectators on the hill a rare view), our pilot headed straight for Red Hill, and after making a detdur in the direction of Redmarley Church, made as if for Peyford Bridge, short of which she circled for Ketford and Ryton Firs, back almost to the starting point. Here being headed she retraced her steps over much the same line to Redmarley Village, and on as if for Hazeldene, but running parallel with the road, crossed through the end of Red Hill and away for Lintridge House. Here time and pace began to tell its tale, but our little pack, working with great determination, again reached Ketford Firs, and working up to their hare had a most deserving reward, time two hours. The order was now given home, and after partaking of Mr and Mrs Williamson's kind hospitality we bade adieu to our Master and his gallant little pack, feeling more than contented with a very excellent day's sport.
