NOTES ON TREATING AND TRAINING BEAGLES

(From February 1916)   By Everett G.

KENNEL HINTS 

(From January 1916)   D. Mansbarger & Son, Sabratan, West Virginia.    Do Not Let Your Dog Hunt Garbage.  If you live in or near a town or village you will find it very hard to get your young dog started on game as early as it should.

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.

A LOT OF EXCITEMENT, BUT LITTLE RESULTS

(From January 1916)   By John Sandstrom, L.D., Virginia, Minn. To the Fox and Hound: I will try to tell you about a Deer Hunt that another fellow and  I had in the fall of 1913, where we had quite a lot of excitement, but little result. On the 9th of November we had our packsacks all ready, and at 8 a.m. we boarded a train at Virginia and expected to be at our destination which was Skibo, Minn., at 11 a.m. Our first misshap came...
