BELGIAN HARE DRIVE.
A GOOD BAG SECURED.
A Belgian hare drive was held on June 3rd on the Ninety Mile Beach in aid of the Belgian Fund. About 85 guns took part, 87 of whom came from Leeston and the remainder from the Peninsula end of tbe district. A great day's sport was the result, and although tbe morning was wet, the day was a very enjoyable one.
The two parties met an the Ninety Mile Beach, the Peninsula party as eernbling at the Spit, near Lake For sytb, and the Bouthbridge party at the other end of the beach. Each party drove the hares in front of them and met in the centre, where a great slaughter of bares took place.
A slight accident occurred during the day to M«* J. 0. C. Gebbie'a sod, Master W. Gebbie, who injured his hand while extracting a cartridge, which exploded.
The result of the day's shoot was a bag of 209 bares and 3 rnbbita, which owing to no ppace being available at the freezing work?, were distributed among tbe charitable institutions in Cbrisfcebureb,
