HUNTING. WITH THE LEDBURY. The fixture of Friday last at Staunton Swan attracted a large field, included Sir George Bullougb (the Master), Mr and Mrs A E Whalley, Mr and Mrs Blew, Mr M C Albright, M.F. H. (South Herefordshire), Mrs Hawker, Miss Thomas, Miss Barker, Mr Lakin, Mr G L Acworth, Mrs Masefield, Capt Phillips, Mr T W S Smyth, Mr Robinson, Mr G Hunter, Miss de Montgeon, Mr E Conder, Mr Morris, The Right Hon W J Wilson, M.P., Col Holland, Mrs Bennion, Mr A Bartleet, Mr T Molesworth, Dr Wood. Mr C W Bell, Messrs T J Poiner, C Ireland, T E Jones, W Browning, E H Owen, H J Beaumont, W J Pitt, H Guilding, etc, etc. Hounds were first taken to Fosoombe Roughs, where reynard soon showed himself. No time was lost on these banks, our pilot going away by Foscom be House, pointing for Ashleworth. Bearing left-handed over the Berew and Hill Farms for Hasfield, leaving the Court on the right, he went on to the Firs. Running the whole length of these, he hroke away at the far end, pointing for the Canning Aims. After travelling the Gloucester-road for some distance he turned over the bank by Foscombe House, and was pulled down in the new cover atter a very nice hunt. A small spinney near Hasfield Court supplied our next fox, that went away at a freat pace lor Corse Grove, passing out over Tu ley Court meadows, then swinging to the lft and crossing Corse Hill. Bearing right-handed a beautiful bit of country was travelled for Eldeistield. Turning left-handed over the Hawthorns, hounds raced him along by the Swan as though making for Gadhury. A drain on Mr Holds' farm appeared more inviting, and he popped in. A stone s ab was removed and reynard allowed another start, but hounds quickly pulled him down. Finding again in Corse Grove, a lot of persuasion was required to shift our pilot over Tirley Court. First he pointed for Berth Hill, but after going two three fields circled back through the Roughet to the Grove, where there was no scent, and he had to be given up. During the day Mr Harry Guilding sustained a very serious accident. Falling at a fence, his horse put its foot right on Mr Guilding's face. I hear that though badly damaged he is going on as well as can be expected. On Saturday Eastnor Village was the trysting place. Hounds were taken to the Conigree, where the morning was spent in a' woodland hunt on a very poor scent. Things changed later in the day, when on going to Clencher's Mill Wood they found a fox at the lower end that made off through Hacklers for Howlers Heath. Circling round by Hill End, which was passed on our right, Gold Hill was crossed as he made his way for the top corner of Clenchers Mill. Leaving on the Woolpits side he led us over Dingwood Park, the Noad and Argus Farms for Eyebridge. Crossing the river and railway the Leddington was reached, and here in the buildings around Upham he beat us, after an hour abd 20 minutes. Highleadon Green on Monday attracted a large field. Hounds found at once in Highiam and ran their fox toward Tibberton, back through Highnam, to and through Pipers Grove, pointing for Overbridge, where a hollow tree provided a refuge. On going to a small spinney at Tibberton a fox jumped up in a hedgerow and ran by Bulley Bank, then turning right-handed passed Tibberton Court. Bearing right-handed at the lower end of the village, he passed through Tibbertoa Wood to the Pinetum, where a sharp 30 minutes ended his travels. Another good woodland hunt of an hour followed, but though reynard was viewed several times dead beat just ahead of hounds, they were unable to get up to him. I FOR'ARD ON.
