"GREAT UNCLE McCARTHY."

and nearly deafened by the clamor that
was bandied about the high roof and
walls. At the farther end of the loft the
hounds were raging in the hay, encour

screeches of Flurry and his friends. High
up . In the gable of the loft, where it
joined the main wall of the house, there
was a small' door, and I noted, with a
transient surprise, that there was a long
ladder leading up to it. Even as it caught
my eye a hound fought his way out of a
drift of hay and began to jump at the

Flurry. "Trumpeter has him! "What's up
there, back of the door, Major? I don't
remember It at all."
My crime had . evidently been forg-otten
In the supremacy of the moment. While I
was futllely asserting that had the fox

beside these on the floor lay a bag in'

Flurry, looking more uncomfortable and
nonplused than I could have believed pos

harangue of the elderly ". woman. The
hounds were yelling like lost spirits In the
loft below, but her voice pierced the up
roar like a bagpipe. It was an unspeak

frowzy remnants of respectability about
her central aspect.

up these, as Peter and I emerged from
