Ashburton Coursing Club

(by pigeon post.) The last meeting for the season of the recently formed Coursing Club was held to-day at Winchmore, at.which a quite unexpectedly large crowd was present. The weather was all that could be desired, and the outing from the comfort point of view was very enjoyable. Mr A. J. Kelly had a waggon on the ground and provided an excellent luncheon, as wel] as the needful for the thirsty. Hares unfortunately were not as plentiful as could have been wished, and so a good deal of time was lost m beating for hares that did not rise. Mr John Corbitt acted as slipper, and had a long and gruelling trudge with the first couple m the leash before "puss" rose. The first paddock beaten was one just beyond the homestead on the left hand side of the road, about 250 acres m extent, and three-fourths of this was covered before any business was . done. Mr Corbitfc had Harpenden and Pride of Erin m the slips, and slipped immediately puss was sighted, but she made straight for the fence next the riverbed, where the dogs lost sight of her. Harpenden led so far as the Avork went, but the Judge had to declare an undecided course. The paddock was worked back on the upper side with Magic 11. and Lord Onslow m the leash, but finding nothing a shift was made to the paddock on the other side of the road, of very much greater acreage, but hero luck did not attend the Club any more than where they had been before, and it was quite half-past ten ere a hare was even sighted. At eleven o'clock when my first pigeon was despatched, no course had been run for want of hares.
