FOX HUNTING
Messrs. Charles Price and Joseph Wilson, of near Madisonville, had a grand fox-hunt on the plantation of Mr. W.S. Morton on the morning of November the 21st.  They came in autos, reaching the hunting ground just at dawn.
As soon as the dogs were released, they found a hot trail and from then until the catch, the hills reverberated with the grandest music ever made.  The chase could be heard and seen by taking an elevated position near Mr. Morton's residence.  Several of the neighbors could not resist the charms, and joined the hunt.  Among them were: Messrs. Flynn, Dixon and Anderson.
This made the third fox captured by Mr. Price's splendid pack of a dozen dogs this season, on the hunting grounds.
Mr. Bliss, of Farmville, and Mr. David Womack, of Prince Edward, will join in the grand hunt of December the fourth.
