party. Some preferred to spend the
day hunting, and from the hunting
parties passing, it seemed a large
number were of this mind. There
were several ladies in the hunting
parties, an?i4^?h?rr?sni?n told sev
eral amusing things in the pursuit
of "Brer Rabbit." One of the ladies
could out run any of the party, and
actually killed a rabbit by throwing
at it. One hunting party had a rab
bit fry with coffee prepared after the
hunt, but the ladies in the crowd
had prepared a basket of good things
to go with this and also in case the
