HUNTING. WITH THE LEDBURY. Some good sport has- been enipyed by the followers of these hounds during the past week. Friday last was devoted to the Hartpury side of the country. After meeting at the Canning Arms hounds were taken to Ashleworth, which was tenantless, but? on going towards Maisemore a fox jumped upon the hill-side, and scent being good they raced him away to and through the School House Coppice for Maisemore. Being headed on the Glouoester-road he doubled back through Ashleworth Brakes to SSartpury Village, leaving the Canning Arms on the left. A beautiful line of country was traversed for Foscombe. Soon the Firs- and Roughs were left behind and on reaching the Gloucester and Tewkesbury-road he turned right-handed over the hill, setting his mask for the Haw Bridge. Bearing right-handed he reached the Grove, but hounds hung on his-trail and foraed him him away for Hasfield. Once again he was headed, and turning sharp back through the Grove, set out on the opposite side for Tirley, but hounds soon overhauled him,and, brought a capital run of 1 hour and 40minu&t(}.a.n end. Going on to Limbury several foxes were soon moving, the selected one going away as though for Colin Park. He was headed, and doubling back through Limbury, crossed Mount Oliver, going through Catsbury for Haitpury House, and on for the School Hbuse Covert. Here he turned left banded, and going back to, Limbury was lost after a good 40 minutes. Another nice little spin of45 minutes from-the School House Covert by way of Maisemore, back by the Pheasantry, through the gardens at Hartpury House to the osier bed, was spoiled by a shower of rain coming on, and this brought a good day's I sport to a close. Saturday's trysting place was the RoMy Bush. Finding in Dog Kennel Wood a pilot steered away over the hills for Newers Wood, where hounds were quickly divided, but on. being got together hunted their fox. through Tippins Rough and over the Camp to Berrington Grove. Going away by the hotel he ran the hill-side to the Golf Links, where he was headed, and turn- ing over Ockeridge farm crossed the Ridgeway to Newers Wood, where he was lost. Casting hounds forward they hit off his line, and bustled him along- to the Holly. BlIsh Quarry. Turning right-handed over Midsummer Hall for Castle Coppice hounds ran into him, and; got their reward. A very fast 35; minutes then followed from a find near the Duckpond. Reynard slipped. away over Netherton Farm, bearing right for Newers Wood: Skirting this he went at a pace through the Birchend and across the park to, the Sitch. Unaccompanied hounds raced himvon over the upper end of Massington, pointing for the railway. Evidently the pace was too hot for our pilot, who turned sharp back to the Rifle butts, and popped into a rabbit-bole, from which he was speedily evicted. On Monday Bromesberrow Heath was the fixture. Ladywell Wood, supplied our first fox that ran the Rigood, Stone and White Leafed Oak several times- before going away over White House Farm to ground. A substitute was found in High Wood that led us over Howlers Heath to Hilleml, and on through Hacklers to Cleachers Mill. After running several rings round he was killed by the brook side, and hoands were taken to Halhold, which proved to be blank. From Bromesberrow Heath a good hyiit of 40 minutes resulted with a fox that went away for the Court, on to Clenchers Mill, through May Hill to the Castle pleasure grounds, back over the hill for the Woolpits, and awayt for the Pye's Nest. Here he bore left-handed, ) across the Noad and Smallend farms, going to. ground close to Haffied House. r FOR'ARD OK
