to Patrolmen Hmnm and Forgarly that
she thought there was a dead man in the

office. He had evidently tried to tele
phono Information of the (rouble that led
to his wound, for the re.-elver of the tele
phone w u covered with clotted blood.
A further Investigation of the premises
would seem to show that the crime was
committed not In the office, but at the
gate leading into the yard of the pi k
ery, for on the gate was found a zpLish
of blood, probably thailrst spurt that fol
lowed the wound- The trail of blood
then led through the yard and Into the
office to tire p|at where the man died

It was <tn idewl day for foz hunting. The
dogs had been confined for several days
and were as keen as mustard for a run.
At 7 BO o'clock the hunt party forme* 1 at
Wheelmen's Park and rode to Sandfly In
a half hour the dogs struck and in fifteen
minutes Reynard was up and dancing
nimbly In front of them He led a warm
row ID bad deceived them three tithe*
on previous hunts and was saucy For
nearly two hours without a single inter
ruption the dog* went pellmell through
the pines around Sandfly, Ailing th* woods
with their music.
As the race became warmer th* rid*rt
rod#* closer and nt 10 o'clock Reynard
climbed h tree. It was a slender cypress,
an l very tali, and the fox was perched
on n branch near the top. The master
of hunt and wtdp attempted to shake him
out, hut the old fellow seemed
to be glued 'to the limb The
party was about to find Itself in

like a squirrel. He climbed within reach
of th* fox. and after teasing the animal
some time shook him from his perch.
Then came the death gallop. It lasted
thirty minutes. The hounds were deter
mined and the hunters rod* hard by, each
eager to secure the brush.
When the chase became too warm for
Reynard, he turned u?>on the hound* in
ofen view In his death struggle. And Ihe
jig was up with him. Then It became
a red-hot race letw***ii riders !• the
hounds. When Miss Haskell reached the
'bars in the lead, she dismounted, and
while they tugged at the fox's pretty coat,
she raised the masterful fellow high above
them, amid the deafening shouts of the
hunters. And through the rest of the
hunt she rode with Reynard on her sad
