When the hounds arrived at Mr Grigg's farm at Tinwald, a halt was made for lunch. After this had been done jus'ice to, the throw off took place m Lagmhor paddock, where a hare was soon fonnd, and a good run resulted, but no kill was registered. Mr MoLeod'a property was then visited, and another hare was found, and a good run finished m a kill near Willowby Road. Mr Fearce's property was next visited, and another good run took place over Mr A. Wilson's property, where the hare was lost m the plantation. After two other small runs, as the hares were found to be numerous, the hounds were whippet! off. The ground was very soft after the recent rains and this brought about a good few nasty spills. Two of these proved serious. Mr J. King, of Timaru, sustained a fracture of the collar bone through his horse rolling on him, while another young roan (Mr Walker, of Longbeach) had the misfortune to have his horse fall and roll over him with the result that he sustained a Blight concussion of the brain. He was unconscious for some time and was taken to Mr W. Hopwood's residence at Winslow, •where he eventually recovered consciousness, and whore he still remains. A number of others were hurt but none of thara seriously.
