The other car was a-Ford but It Bot a pace over the rough ground that he didn't care to follow, They were going along between 20 and 30 miles an hour at the time they started up the first coyote, and when the biggest hound in Mr. Warrlng'a car sighted tho wolf, It leaped over the windshield and hood and landed running, twenty feet ahead of the car. Tho coyote was a big follow, but the hounds finally brought him down, the big houn,d throwing him while the< others pinned him down. M. While chasing the first .-coyote,--the other auto nearly ran over another one, which leaped up almost from under under the wheels of the car. The men shot at It sovoral times, wounding It, but because of the speed of the bounding bounding car could get but poor aim.
