of 30th and day for upon duty, abundance, of upon war the way seal the of A FOX HUNT. Last Sunday was a perfect day a number of farmers west of town thought they would try and enliven things with a fox hunt, as there said to be a pumber of red foxes the Hall's Grove country. There were a baker's dozen, 13 the party, viz: Ike and Frank Ben Kingery and son Merida, Otto Wilhelm, Win Crosby. Art, Jim and Charley Pagles, Dell Crosby and sons and Young Price. With such formidable line-up it sure would most any sly old fox hunt his hole, as history always relates, there was one venturesome, and he paid the price. There are conflicting stories, some say Johnnie Downing had previously been out and sprinkled salt on the foxes' tail that made him easy to catch and others that Otto Wilhelm had salt along and put over the and still another that the poor little fox in his fright bumped his heac against a tree and fell in a faint after shooting at a rabbit Merida gery went over and bagged him he came "out of it." At all events Merida carried off the prize and Ar Pagles had to go home and look that gold ball club for consolation.
