GOOD SPORT WITH PUPS

  (From February 1916)    Neenah, Wis., Oct. 10, 1915. Fox and Hound Pub. Co., Decatur, IL   Dear Sir: The September issue of Fox and Hound received and to say that it was very interesting is putting it mildly.

HOW I BECAME A BEAGLER

(From January 1916)   Not many years ago I kept a pack of foxhounds with which I hunted successfully the coyote or prairie wolf.
