POACHING AS A FINE ART.
A CURIOUS CHAPTER IN ENGLISH
lya and Mrthoda of Men Who Violate
the Cane Lain of Great Hrttain En
llatiuc the Aid of County Jutlev. Milk
men and Some of tlie faraaera.
Poudiing is one of the flue arm how "flne"
only the initiated know and the auccewful
pxmrher ia alwaya a epecialist. Heaelectaone
kind of Kama, and hia whole knowledge of
woodcraft ia direi-ted against it. In autumn
and winter the man who devotee himself to
rur knowa the whereahouts of every hare
in the parish not only the Mold In which it
iS but the very clump of ruahea in which is
ita "form." A pi-m gom away down the
tuniir. rig, be notes ber every twist and
double, and tikes iu the minutest details,
lie ia careful to examine the "araoots" and
Kntee through which she panes, and them
sU be alwaya approax-bea laterally. Ue
leaves no acent of bund nor wint of foot, and
(ioi-a not disturb the herbage. All this with
a view to bis ailint work. After this it need
hui.ily beaaid that the intelligent poacher is
alwaya a naturalist. The aigna of wind and
weather bo knows, a it were by heart, and
Ibis isew'iitml to bia silent trade. The rise
und wane of tbe moon, toe rain bringing
inlea, the local migrations of birds these
and a hundred other tilings are marked in bis
unwritten calendar. His outdoor life has
made hi in uuk-k, and taught bim much ready
animal ingenuity. He has imbibed an im
mense amount of knowledge of tbe life of the
He Ids and woods; and be is that one man in a
thou-a.ti.1 who has accuracy of eye and judg
ment Kiitlicient to interpret nature aright.
lu summer poachers make and repair their
neu for winter use. Large hare nets are
made for gt tea, smaller ones for rabbit bur
rows and sinoots." l'artridge nets are also
necHssarily large, having sometimes to cover
half a Held. Although moat of the summer
the poacher is practically idle, it is at this
time that be closely studies tbe lira of the
fields and makes his observations for winter.
He gets occasional employment at hay or har
vest, and for his darker winter profession
treasures up what he sees. He is often intro
diiccd to the heart of tbe Und, and raianea
nothing when he gets tbe opportunity. In
autumn be ia engaged to cut down ash poles,
or to fell young woods, and this brings bim
to me covert. .Nothing escapes bis notice.
nod in the end bia employers have to pay
ileiirly for bis labor. At tbis time pheasants.
purtridge and grouse are breeding, and are
therefore worthless: so with rabbits and bans.
Every poacher knows that tbe difficulty
lies not su much iu obtaining tbe game as in
transporting it safely home. Their dogs are
always trained to run a couple of hundred
yards in advance, so as to give warning of
any one's approach. If a police constable or
keeper is met on tbe highway, the dog im
mediately leaps the fence, and, under iu
cover, runs tiack to iu master. Seeing this.
the game liag is dropped into a dry ditch.
and dog and man make off in different direc
tions. County constables loiter about unfre
quented lanes and bypaths at daybreak. Tbe
poachers know tbis, and are rarely met with
game upon them. Pitches, stacks and ricks
afford good hiding places until women can be
sent to fetch the spoiL These failing, country
curriers and early morning milk carta are
useful to tbe oacber. In one aleepy village
known to us, both tbe postman and parish
clerk were poachers. The Utter carried his
game in the black bag which usually beld the
funeral pail The smith at tbe shoeing forge
w as tbe regular receiver, and there were few
in the village who bad not poached at some
time or other. Tbe cottage women netted
fish, and shut their garden gates on hares and
rabbits when they came down to feed in win
rROPITIATIKO TBI FARMERS.
Except for immediate use, poachers seldom
keep their neU at home. Tbey ara stowed
away in church tower, barn, rick, or out-
bouse. As to tbe poachers morality w ith re
gard to the game laws it is difficult to detect
just where he draws the line. He lives fur
these to be repealed, and yet bis native phi
losophy tells bim that wbeu this time comes
game will have become weUnigb extinct.
I'pon the ground game act be looks with
mingled feelings; for, after all, are not rab
bits and bares the chief producU of bis
nights! Tbe farmers now get these, and
the poacher's field is limited. Tbey engage
bim, maybe, to stay the ravages upon clover
and young wheat, or to thin tbe rabbits
from out the pastures. The poacher propiti
ates tbe farmer in many ways. Occasionally,
in the morning, the farm lad finds half
dozen rabbits or a hare dropped behind the
barn door. How these come there no one
knows or asks. Tbe country attorney is
sometimes submitted to a like indignity. In
crossing Und tbe poacher la careful to close
gates alter bim, and be never breaks down
fences. He assists cattle and sheep which he
finds in extremity, and leaves word of the
mishap at the farm. Ia it likely that the
farmer will dog the steps of the man who
protecu bis property and pays toll for do
It frequently happens that the poacher b
not less popular with those whose Interests
be more directly serves. It is even asserted
that more than one of tbe county justices
have in some sort a sneaking affection for
him. Tbe same wild spirit and love of sport
take bim to the fields and woods as bis more
fortunate brethren to the moor and covert.
It is untrue, as has been said, that everv
s inclier is a mercenary w retch who invari
ably sells bia game. He a frequently sends
ii a I trace of birds or a bare to a tmor or sick
uuighlior. He cornea in contact with the Uw
just KUtHcient to know aomethlng of its bear
ings. ben charged with beiug in posses
sion of "game," be reiterates tbe old argu
ment that rabbiu are vermin.
Tbe pugnacity of the pheasant is well
known to tbe poacher, and out of tbis trait
be makes capital. He takes under bis arm a
game cock tilted with artificial spurs. These
are attached to tbe natural ones, are sharp as
ueeiifcw, and the bird ia trained bow to use
tbciu. Upon tbe Utters crowing, one or
more rock pbeaaauU immediately respond
and advance to meet tbe adversary. A
single blow usually suffices to lay low tbe
pride or tbe pbeaaaut, aud In this way half a
dozen birds may be taken, while the poach
er s bird remains unhurt.
The most ingenious plan adopted by poach
ers, however, is also one of tbe most auccess-
ful. If time aud opportunity offer there is
scarcely any limit to the depredations which
it allows. A number of dried peas are token
and steeped in boiling water ; a bole U then
mude through tbe center with a needle or
some sharp instrument, and through tbis a
stiff hrMIe is threaded. Tbe enda are rut off
short, leaving only about quarter of an
inch or bristle projecting at each end. The
ieas are fed to the birds and are greedily
eaten. In passing down the gullet, however,
a violent irritation is set up, and tbe pheas
ant is nnauy cnoaea. in a aying condition
the birds are picked up from beneath tbe
hedges, to which shelter they almost always
run. Tbe way is a quiet one and ia preferred
by poachers, if brutes enouftb to use it. be
