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 Coroner Goeite was notified and visited the s> * m*. and took charge of the body.

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 a dilemma when Mr. George Haskell dis mounted and climbed the tree a short way. His attempt to dislodge th* fox however, whh fruitless and Mr. le*sh Haskell, who is horn** from Johns Hop kins on his vacation, went up the cypress 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 dle The president of the club had wisely provided for another chase, which came off with the usual amount of excitement After nearly an hour's ride the bound'* put the second fox up a tree. After the hunters had looked at him and com|ared hi* size with the one which had been cap tured they voted him his liberty, "to run another day." so he wus not disturbed The imrty rode back to the city and at 1U o'clock became the guests of the proal <i nt for an hour The following members of the club composed the hunting party: Miss Elizabeth Ilookell on Anglic*.
