The Ashburton hounds met at Winchmore on Thursday, when there was a large field, including several ladies, in addition to a number of spectators in vehicles. After the company had beefn right hospitably entertained by Mr and Mrs Hart, a move was made to a paddock about a mile from the homestead, where a hare was soon found, which gave a capital run over some excellent hunting country, but just when puss was fairly beaten several other hares jumped up in front of the hounds, and the hunted one escaped. Two other good runs were enjoyed, but owing to the number of hares jumping up at intervals no kill resulted. At the conclusion of the day's sport the company returned to the homestead, where they met with another hospitable reception, their appreciation of which was shown before separation by ringing cheers for Mr and Mrs Hart and Mr Stitt.
