Sir Marteine Lloyd has taken a foremost part in the improvement of the breeding of Beagles, and is one of the first authorities on the subject. Miss Lloyd whips in to her father's hounds. Knowlton.--Lady M. If.: Miss Gladys Peto, Knowlton Court, near Dover. The only pack of Basset hounds owned and hunted by a lady. The Misses Marjory and Doris Peto whip in to them. Tynan and Armagh.--Lady M. U.: Miss Isa M'Clintock. These Harriers became a subscription pack in 1880, and Miss T.

It needs lightness and delicacy of touch and great nicety in details, though considerable physical strength is also needed for the capture of the larger Salinonida? and the Tarpon. Well-known Anglers: H.R.H. The Duchess of Fife, Mar Lodge, Braemar; H.R.H. The Duchess of Connaught, Bagshot Park, Surrey; Duchess of Bedford, Woburn Abbey, Beds; Duchess ...
