SPORT FAST ARD FURIOUS
Rattling: Runs Open Fox Hunting
The week has been an auspicious open
ing for the fox hunting season, opening
with a moonlight meeting, a rattling race
and kill, and concluding with a lengthy
hour run which outdistanced the field ; a
variety which has rarely been combined
in three hunts. For rollicking fun the
moonlight run was easily a leader for
full details ask Huntsman Nat as the
"field" did not participate in the finish.
Half a mile out the run opened with a
desultory chase of short duration in
which "Lauder" sang a solo part with
occasional assistance from the pack as
chorus. Presently the group paused at
the foot of a gum tree in which Uncle
Nat's keen eyes almost immediately
spotted a 'possum which was promptly
bagged with great glee.
Not long after Sir Reynard was dis
covered hot on the trail of a rabbit and
promptly found more urgent business in
distant parts, with the hounds in full cry
and the hunt following suit. Through
swale and up hillside he sped doubling
back to cover only to be routed for a
wide circle with the distance constantly
lessening and the music rising to concert
pitch as the end drew nigh. "Get 'im
next time he turns" gasped Nat, and sure
enough he did and good and plenty, for
Foxy ran amuck of a Polar kitten and
with scant ceremony departed for haunts
unknown to let the midnight wanderer
welcome the pack. Nat, close up, wit
nessed a strange commotion and plunged
in ready to snatch the brush fiom the
dogs. But Nat had things all his own
way. "Not for mine" chirped the pack,
